Memorable Moments


  • Carter: What are you going to do?
    Greene: Die, I guess.
  • Abby (to Carter): It's how the cycle goes. She goes away for three months, and I don't know where she is or what she's doing or even if she's still alive. Then she shows up in my life again. It's the dance we do. We get lost in it for a little while, but it always ends the same.
