Episode Quotes
Scout: What is Jake doing in a dress?

Will: And so our adventure ends and some of us find our heroes and others uncovered their fears and some might even say we’ve triumphed. I’m not sure If it happened that day or that summer but somehow we all felt older and different. I knew I’d never forget any of it. And I decided I wasn’t gonna let it end because I realized we’re not just given life experiences, we’re given the experience of life.

Will: Every day the mystery of life unfolds and every night we go to sleep not quite sure if we solved it.
