Bailey: I had a purpose, I was needed again and again and again. With each new life I was learning a new lesson.

[last lines]

Bailey: So, in all my lives as a dog, here's what I've learned. Have fun, obviously. Whenever possible, find someone to save, and save them. Lick the ones you love. Don't get all sad-faced about what happened and scrunchy-faced about what could. Just be here now.

Adult Ethan: [throws the flattened football] Go! Okay, go get it.

Bailey: Be - here - now. That's it. That's a dog's purpose.

Carlos: [into his police radio] My dog's been shot! I repeat, canine shot!

Ellie: [narrating] I always hated getting shots. This was definitely the worst shot I ever got.

[first lines]

Bailey: [narrating] What is the meaning of life? Are we here for a reason? Is there a point to any of this?

[a litter of puppies]

Bailey: First, I had no idea what was going on. I... I couldn't see a thing. It was warm. There was my mother. Every day, I had fun. Was having fun the point? The whole point? No, it couldn't be that simple.

Dog Catcher: Here's one...

Bailey: And then it was over.

Dog Catcher: That's it for you.

[put him into his truck]

Bailey: No more fun. It seemed like such a short life. I mean, what exactly did I do? There was some playing. There was some eating. I dug in the dirt. But when I really thought about it, it didn't add up to much. I was back. And I was a puppy again. Alive and ready to ask the big questions. To dig for answers.

Bailey: [about Hannah] From that moment on, the girl was a member of our pack. I liked her. Plus she smelled like biscuits.

Tino: [at the veternarian] What's with these white-coat people sticking me with sharp things?

Adult Ethan: I'm really stubborn.

Adult Hannah: I know that. When you put your mind to something, that was that.

Adult Ethan: Yeah. That's good for getting things done. It's not so good for relationships.

Tino: Slow down, slow down! My legs are barely legs!
