I like the part when Jeb says "ya well Kyle needs a gun pointed on him more often".
I also like the part where Wanda is holding Jamie and she keeps repeating "Jamie, Jamie, Jamie,"
And when Jamie says to Jared "You're not the man I thought you were,". It really showed how much Jamie had grown up since Melanie was gone.

For some reason, when Kyle says "Aw Hell, it didn't fall," I start to laugh.

Oh and then there's this classic line:
Ian: "And you're future, if you want that."
Wanda: "Yes, please."

I think that is just so adorable that she is kind of shy about it.

Doc: I think a knife to the throat counts a duress, Jared"
That just makes me laugh because Jared tries to write it off.

I may have been disoriented and confused but I wasn't stupid. Melanie's experiences had not gone to waste; I had learned from them. Ian was every bit as honorable as Jared, and I was not going to go through to frustration Melanie had.
So, I lied, giving myself an extra year. "I'll be eighteen."

That line had me cracking up because all I could think of was "Melanie's been a bad influence on you, hasn't she, Wanda?"

I'm sure there's more (like "You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me." for example) but that's all I could come up with for now.

Ian says something like
"I feel guilty as hell, seeing her... it flinch away from us like a girl who's been beaten."
***Shows that Ian was in love With Wanda even before he knew it ... sigh

Pretty much everything Ian said made chills go down my spine. ;)

I don't care if I'm repeating other posts, I LOVED these...

"You.Are.Not.Leaving.Me." 'Ian (One of my faves!)

"Possibilities? At what cost to her? You lether almost hack her own handoff? -Ian

"But he's your brother, Ian."
"A fact that shames me."
-Ian and Wanda

"Fine. But if you try cuddling up to me tonight....so help me, O'Shea."
"Not to be overly arrogant, but to be perfectly honest, Jared, were I so inclined, I think I could do better."-Jared and Ian

"I truly love you, Ian. With my whole soul, I love you."
"I truly love you, too, my Wanderer." -Wanda and Ian

"Listen up, Wanda. I know exactly what you don't want to be. But we're human, we're selfish, and wedon't always do the right thing. We aren't going to let you go. Deal with it."-Melanie

"I held you in my hand, and you were beautiful." -Ian.
Her name is Wanda, not it[i]. You will not touch her. Any mark you leave on her, I will double on your worthless hide." -Ian

"Life and love will go on."-Lily

"Ian is....Ian believes me. He watches over me. He can be so very kind....for a human."-Wanda

"Melanie Stryder! You will [i]not
leave me. Don't you love me? Prove it! Prove it!Damn it, Mel! Get back here!"-Jared

"See, Jeb? She never takes into account her own wants - her own happiness, her own health, even. She'd do anything we asked her to, even if it got her killed. It's not fair to ask her things the way we'd ask each other. Westop to think about ourselves. She doesn't."-Ian (See? He proved he loved her before she realized it!)

"The girl in there...."
"That body doesn't belong to her!"
"Your point?"
"Keep your hand off it."

"Our mother should have suffocated him at birth!"-Ian, about Kyle

"It's still her face, her neck. Don't the bruises you've inflicted BOTHER you?"-Jamie

"Jamie, Jamie, Jamie...."-Wanda

"Stop that! Don't you daretouch her!"
"Hey, baby."-Mel and Jared


"Good or bad?"
"That's what I thought."-Ian and Wanda

"It's a strange world."
"The strangest."
-Burns and Wanda

"Jared is my past, another life. You are my present."
"And your future, if you want that."
"Yes, please." *kiss*- Wanda and Ian

"I....think it might. I think it might make me very, very happy."
"Then you will stay."
"I will stay."

There are a million others I enjoy, but that's enough.

I pretty much loved everything Ian ever said. Seriously. But one of my favorite lines comes from the conversation he and Wanda have when he first tells her he loves her.
"It's not the face, but the expressions on it. It's not the voice, but what you say. It's not how you look in that body, but the things you do with it. You are beautiful."
Isn't Ian just wonderful?

Also, what Wanda said at Walter's funeral made me cry. I loved it.
"There was no hatred in your heart. That you existed is proof that we were wrong. we had no right to take your world from you, Walter. I hope your fairytales are true. I hope you find your Gladdie."

I just have to say that I agree here with everyone's favorite lines, especially the ones that come out of Ian's mouth! I am not going to list them all again but I did love when he said, "I held you in my hand Wanderer and you were so beautiful."

"Oh, and also, I'm wretchedly in love with you."
