Charlie: "Give yourself some credit."
Bailey: "Don't you see what that means? I don't know what to do with myself until somebody else is in trouble. I would have no reason for living, Charlie, if it wasn't for, what? If it wasn't for Mom and Dad dying."
Charlie: "Hold on a second."
Bailey: "Charlie, it's true. It's true. The absolute best, the absolute high point for me in my life was when you got sick. Because I took over. I took the family, I took the house, I took the restaurant. And finally I was the man. But you take all that away and what's left? I'm this person who needs people that he loves to be dying for him to be happy."

Bailey: "Yeah, yeah you did."
Owen: "So, do you think you could work on it with me? See, I thought maybe if I got it real good I could, you know, hand it to Miss Shaefer. Claud and Jul tried to help me and Charlie did too, but no one's as good as you."

Charlie to Joe: "I need you there. You might be right, I mean - the past doesn't really tell you that much about the future anyway. So I'm askin' ya, will you stay?"
