Bobby: It's not that simple. I wouldn't be here without him.

Jessica: I'm not having any of that.
Derrick: Any of what?
Jessica: Don't give me that bullshit. I know you two had a dustup on the Ickarus tour.

Jeff: You must be Nick.
Nick: And you are?

Nick: I'll take good looking.

Jessica: They're family. I should have done more to help them.
Jeff: They've been your family for like 15 minutes.
Jessica: What's that supposed to mean?
Jeff: It means they're strangers. You don't know them. They don't know you, and you're trying to make up for something your father did, and that's not your responsibility. You want family. Your family is sitting right here in front of you, and you can't see it.
Jessica: I know you're my family.
Jeff: Do you?
Jessica: If you're my family, then they are your family too, and if you can't accept that then we have a bigger problem then whether I can get to Miami or not.
