Frank: Did anyone see you there? Did anyone see your license plate?
Jim: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter.
Carol: Why should you be the only one involved?
Frank: Far be it from me to tell you what to do...
Carol: Oh, are you going to preach? Do we have to listen to a sermon now?
Frank: Well, I'm only trying to tell him what you mean. You can't be idealistic all your life, Jim.
Jim: Except to yourself.
Frank: Nobody thanks you for sticking your neck out.
Jim: Except - except to yourself.
Frank: Wait a minute.
Jim: Except to yourself.

Jim: But I am involved. We are all involved. Mom, a boy, a kid was killed tonight. I don't see how I can get out of that by pretending that it didn't happen.
Frank: But you know that you did the wrong thing. That's the main thing, isn't it?
...
Jim: You're not tearing me loose again.
...
Jim: You are not going to use me as an excuse again.
Carol: I don't.
Jim: Every time you can't face yourself, you blame it on me.
Carol: That is not true!
Jim: You say it's because of me. You say it's because of the neighborhood.
Carol: No!
Jim: You use every other phony excuse. Mom, I, just once, I want to do something right, and I don't want you to run away from me again. Dad?
Frank: This is all going too fast for me.
Jim: You better give me something. You better give me something fast.
Carol: Jimmy, you're very young. A foolish decision now could wreck your whole life. In ten years, you'll never know this even happened.
Jim: Dad, answer her. Tell her. Ten years. Dad, let me hear you answer her. Dad, Dad, stand up for me.
