Tenzin: What is it friend?
Wolf: I had, uh, leukemia as a kid, and uh, when I was in the children's ward, every few weeks a bed would just, a bed would just suddenly be empty. Like the kid just disappeared. Do you know how scary that is? Nobody said anything. Guess they didn't know how to like talk about it. I was terrified. And I hate it. I hate it for what it took and for what it takes. How can you be so happy about death? It's not right.
Tenzin: Not right. Not wrong. Not good or bad. Just another change.

Grace: No. Yes. Maybe. I don't know.
Kabir: This is the first time this has felt like, like and affair. It feels dirty.
Grace: Yeah, for you. Whatever, I gotta go.
Kabir: Okay, fine. The whole situation is messed up.
Grace: Yeah, it is. And guess what? You don't get to have the girlfriend experience when you've got a fiancée at home. So for us, dirty is where it's at.

Naz: Tell that to the judge.
Keon: If it makes the guy happy ... People sneak their own drugs in here all the time, eh.

Grace: What do you want me to do?
Ashley: Nothing, just. Are you okay? Hey, look, I know we're not tight, but I want you to know I've got your back. Whatever you need.

Ashley: I can't help you with that, but I might know some people.
Detective Arlo Walker: So I had to bring the burglar in. Moron cracked his femur falling off the balcony. Guy offered a wad of cash for a private room, though. I'm in the wrong game.
Sinead: You're giving me ideas, Arlo. Work your own hours, no taxes. Not sure I'd look good in a ski mask though.
Walker: Hey, uh, I was wondering. You ever get a Saturday night off? You okay?
Sinead: Yeah, uh ... would you look at all this. I'm so behind with my schedules.
Tenzin: Can you do me an immense favor?
Wolf: Anything. I'm here for you all day.
Tenzin: I worked in palliative care for many years with my brothers at the monastery. We used ritual to travel consciously to death. I hoped to return home to die, but time is not on my side. I will die today.
Wolf: Hey, you can't, you can't know that for sure.
Tenzin: I have seen it enough to know. The aura of death is upon me. My brothers will bring the ritual tea and I will go on a trip.
Wolf: A trip?
Tenzin: Inward. Psilocybin is the main ingredient.
Tenzin: We've used it for centuries, but it's misunderstood here.
Wolf: Also, you know, it's not legal.
Tenzin: Will you protect me from interference so that I may have a good death?
Grace: There are times in life where we have to choose to act, or not. The higher the stakes, the harder the choice.
Wolf: No! No!
Grace: Nurses face that every day.
Wolf: No! No! Please don't do it, sir! Let's talk a bit. My name's Wolf. What's your name?
Tenzin: Tenzin. I came here for a final breath of fresh air.
Wolf: Right, Tenzin. Please step off, okay? Come on.
Tenzin: My goodness, what is that? (Laughs) How wonderful to get such an omen. What a beautiful day to die.
