Ryan Shaver: [to Courtney] Welcome to the team.
Courtney Crimsen: Don't start with me, Ryan.
Ryan Shaver: Hey, it happens when you're ready. I came out when I was 5. I didn't really have a choice. Guess I was just born fabulous. I'm just glad you made it out.
Courtney Crimsen: Yeah. Me, too.
Ryan Shaver: If you start driving a Subaru and wearing flannel, I will hold an intervention.
Jessica Davis: [to Clay] You know, the truth doesn't always make things right. You should know that better than anyone.
Jessica Davis: I think the kind of friends you have say a lot about the kind of person you are. And Hannah, she was a true friend. Better than I deserve. We all want to be strong. We all want to be the kind of people who deserve good friends, but I guess, at the end of the day, none of us are as strong as we want to be.
Jessica Davis: I don't blame Hannah for anything. That's how it is for girls. People judge you by the way you look, the things they hear about you. They put a label on you. I just feel like boys get to define themselves. They get to choose their identity, and they can hide behind it. Well, most boys. I think some know what it's like to be afraid to feel like the world gave you a certain label that you have to live with for the rest of your life, but most boys don't know what it's like. Every single girl does.
Hannah Baker: [to Clay] I'm sorry about Skye.
Clay Jensen: No, you're not.
Hannah Baker: I am.
Clay Jensen: Every day, it's something new with you. Something I didn't know. First, it was the Tyler thing and now you've kissed, like, half the school.
Hannah Baker: Seriously, you believe that?
Clay Jensen: Justin, Courtney, Alex...
Hannah Baker: And you.
Clay Jensen: Yeah, I remember, thank you.
Hannah Baker: [to Clay] You're not the guy to sit on his hands and wait for someone else to save the day.
Clay Jensen: What else can I do? I got his fucking confession, Hannah. And I had to go to the hospital. Did we discuss that yet? The fact that I was shitting blood the next night? My mom wanted to go after him for beating the shit out of me, except I went to his house to buy drugs, and I'd just gotten suspended for drugs, so can't do that, but that was okay because I had his confession.
Hannah Baker: Right? What's a little internal bleeding when you can take down a rapist?
Clay Jensen: And then the school heard it, and all the lawyers heard it, and no one did a goddamn thing because there's no evidence, there's no DNA. They just have your accusation and you're I'm dead. He's gonna get away with everything.
Hannah Baker: But he doesn't have to. Don't do nothing because you're pissed off, okay? Or afraid. Or sad. Don't let Bryce get away with it. You'll regret it for the rest of your life.
Olivia Baker: Hannah was not a liar or a slut or a mean girl. She was a good friend and she had her friend's back. The problem is no one had hers.
Jessica: We all want to be the kind of people who deserve good friends, but I guess at the end of the day none of us are as strong as we want to be.
