Derek (to Seth): I think you've lost weight, man. I can get my arms almost all the way around you.

Doris Vinyard: You think you're the only one doin' time, Derek? You think I'm not in here with you?

Doris : I'm ashamed that you came out of my body.

Sweeney: Has anything you've done made your life better?

Danny (voice-over): 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.'

The quote is from Abraham Lincoln. It's a slightly modified version of the final paragraph of Lincoln's first inaugural address (March 4, 1861). Read the entire inaugural address
