Danny: So I guess this is where I tell you what I learned - my conclusion, right? Well, my conclusion is: Hate is baggage. Life’s too short to be pissed off all the time. It’s just not worth it. Derek says it’s always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can’t top it, steal from them and go out strong. So I picked a guy I thought you’d like. ‘We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.’

Derek: I kept asking myself all the time, how did I buy into this you know? It’s just ‘cause I was pissed off. Nothing I ever did took that feeling away. I killed two guys, I killed them. And it didn’t make me feel any different. Just got me more lost and I’m tired of feeling pissed off. I’m just tired of it. And I’m not telling you what to do. I’m really not. But I need you to understand ‘cause I love you, and you’re my best friend.

Sweeney: I didn’t get no answers ‘cause I asked the wrong questions. You have to ask the right question.
Derek: Like what?
Sweeney: Has anything you’ve done made your life better?
