Ooh, more quotes!

Quote:
EPHRAM: Amy. Why are you talking to me?
Amy is shocked by this abrupt question.]
AMY: What?
EPHRAM: I mean, you seem to have enough friends. Why are you going out of your way to make me feel welcome?
AMY: You just gotta kinda tragic, lonely thing going on. I dig it.
Love it! So cute.

Quote:
AMY: Everyone told me it would be hard... seeing Colin. No matter how many times I heard it, I had no idea that it would be this hard.
EPHRAM: He seemed OK.
AMY: You didn't know him. [beat] Now he doesn't know me. It's like he really did die in that accident. How's this for pathetic? I can remember what he wore on our first date. Abercrombie Rugby with his jeans with the bleached spot. He doesn't even know who I am. I built my whole life around memories of us and... He can't even remember my name.
[She's on the verge of tears.]
EPHRAM: Hey, my dad said it just takes a while. I mean, he'll remember eventually. You've just gotta stick it out.
AMY: It's been six months, Ephram. When do I run out? When do I just give up?
EPHRAM: You don't. That's what devotion is, Amy. I mean, I thought you loved him? That's all I've heard about for the last, I don't know, forever. And what, the first day, you just wanna throw in the towel? The truth is, you couldn't give up on him right now, even if you wanted to. Because since the day I met you, you've been loyal to Colin. And when you're loyal to someone, you can't help it.
AMY: How come you're so smart?
EPHRAM: I'm not, believe me. If I was, I would be wearing a warmer jacket right now. And I wouldn't be telling you to go back to your boyfriend.
AMY: Ephram.
EPRHAM: I-I wish it were different. I do. I wish I were here first but, I wasn't. The truth is, he needs you. He needs your help to get better.
Oh, and this might be my favourite moment of theirs in S1. Amy, vulnerable and giving up. Ephram, confident and sure of himself. Such a role reversal. And Ephram telling Amy to go back to Colin says so much about who he is and how much he cares about Amy, even more than he does about having her. He wants her, but he wants it to be right, not when she's giving up.

Thanks for the quotes! And don't be afraid to pop in some of the other thread too.
