Corinne Coles: You've undermined me all my life. You've only loved part of me, and that's not enough.
Gram: How can... how can you say that? I... I dedicated my life to you.
Corinne Coles: You've always measured me by your standards. My mother was never happy because of you. I married for the wrong reasons, because for you.
Gram: Talk... all this talk is nonsense. You should be thinking about Shelby's wedding.
Corinne Coles: My life is falling apart. My husband is leaving me.
Gram: I don't want to think about that. I can't... I can't think about that.
Corinne Coles: You should think about that. You should think about what you've done to me, and my mother, and my father.
Corinne Coles: I know it was harsh when I spoke of you being a stain on your in-laws' sheets. It's because I was a stain on my mother's.
Tina McNeil: I think Daddy wants you to be our new mommy. Will you, Shelby?
Meade Howell: I need to talk to you, Shel.
Shelby Coles: No, it's not a good time.
Meade Howell: No, I need to talk to you now. Listen, I thought that music came first, and I was wrong. You come before that. I love you. And I am not going to let you just walk away with no good reason.
Shelby Coles: I think I've given you very good reasons, Meade.
Meade Howell: Why, Shel? Because we can't stay in the same hotel in Georgia? We'll make them let us stay in the same hotel!
Shelby Coles: No, it's because I don't think I want to spend my whole life fighting, defending who we are. Proving to the whole world that we have a right to be together!
