Steve Miller: [in letter to Ronnie] Love is fragile. And we're not always its best caretakers. We just muddle through and do the best we can. And hope this fragile thing survives against all odds.

Jonah Miller: Mom says its because she has PMS.

Steve Miller: Do you even know what PMS is, Jonah ?

Jonah Miller: Of course I do dad, I'm not a little kid anymore. It's the Pissed At Men Syndrome.

Steve Miller: Sometimes you have to be apart from the people you love, but that doesn't make you love them any less. Sometimes it makes you love them more.

Kim: We're not perfect. Any of us. We make mistakes, we screw up but then we forgive and move forward.

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Truth only means something when it's hard to admit! Don't you get that?

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Why did you want me to see this?

Will Blakelee: Because I thought you would like her as much as I do, scars and all.

Jonah Miller: Dad says lunch is ready.

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: I can't eat right now.I gotta find something to wear to the wedding.

Jonah Miller: What happened to the money dad gave you.

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: If you tell him I kill you. Okay?

Jonah Miller: [rolls his eyes]

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: I was on my way to bye the dress. And I gave the money away.

Jonah Miller: What?

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Shh! Don't worry about it.

Jonah Miller: Wow. You may be older. By I'm so much smarter than you.

Steve Miller: Ronnie...

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: You lied to me dad.

Steve Miller: I didn't lie.

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Yes you did. You said you were fine. You're not fine! That was a lie!

Steve Miller: I hoped. I didn't lie it's not the same thing.

Steve Miller: It's alright to be angry.

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Good!


Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Is this why you brought me here this summer?


Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Is it? So you wouldn't have to be alone while-.


Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Why didn't you tell us?

Steve Miller: It's not what I wanted this time to be about.

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Well it is. It is now, daddy...

Steve Miller: It's not. This is just another... another part of our terrific summer. Not one of the better parts I admit.

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: [Crying] I love you.

Steve Miller: Sweetie, I love you too.

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: [She lays down with him in his hospital bed, crying] I love you, daddy.

Will Blakelee: Evening!

[he puts his chair on the sand. Then takes out a lantern]

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: Are ya movin' in?

Will Blakelee: Hey, if I wanna get some sleep, I'm gonna need something to scare off the racoons. They don't like bright lights or music.

[pulls out a radio and turns it on]

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: You're planning to sleep here?

Will Blakelee: Well, the truth is, the town sorta got together and we decided we just couldn't take another one of your bad hair days.

Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller: [she hits him with her book repeatedly] What's the matter with you?

Jonah Miller: [from the porch] This doesn't look good. You're not okay with this, are you?

Steve Miller: [shakes his head 'no']

Jonah Miller: Then we better maintain visual contact.

Steve Miller: [nods his head 'yes']
