Nathan had a reason for being in my life, but he wasn't my lifetime, nor was I to be his, but I hope we can build a new relationship, a deep, abiding friendship because he'll always matter to me.


Nathan: Elizabeth came by to see me this afternoon. She told me she loves me. She's just not, she's not in love with me. I don't know if that surprises you. I can't really say it surprises me. What Elizabeth and I share is not the same as what it seems you two share. I think that her heart has always been with you, Lucas.
Lucas: At the moment, I'm not sure what she and I might actually share. I received an offer on the saloon. A good one. I'm inclined to take it.
Nathan: I can't tell you what to do, but if I were you, I'd consider stickin' around. [gets ready to leave] Oh, and if you have any trouble with Pinkertons, I have your back.

Lucas, what you said the other night about love? You were right, and I wanted to thank you. I hadn't realized how you letting me go would help me. [they're interrupted]


When I said it just happened to be you that Jack replaced when he was killed, what I didn't say is how thankful I am that it was you I couldn't have asked for a more courageous, selfless, good man to watch over and care for me. But I also realized that I have been trying to find Jack in you. I've been trying to replace him with you, and that wasn't fair to anyone. Nathan, I do love you. It would be impossible not to, but I'm not in love with you. I'm just so sorry. Tell Allie that I'll always think you're impeccable.


Elizbeth: I'm so sorry. I've behaved horribly. I don't know how I've ever doubted your intentions or your friendship. Do you forgive me?
Rosemary: Of course I do.

Lee: You really have found your calling haven't you?
Elizabeth: Thank you for being so happy for me.
Lee: Of course, I'm happy for you. Truth is, I'm a little jealous, though.

After what's happened with both Nathan and Lucas, with my world feeling a bit like it's crashing down around me, I need my best friend now more than ever.


Elizabeth: I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised that Lucas let me go. He just knows me so well. He could sense there was something happening with Nathan.
Rosemary: People come into our lives, some for a reason, others for a season, and some for a lifetime. Jack was a season, and it was glorious. Now it's up to you to decide who might be here for a reason or perhaps even a lifetime. And once you've settled that in your heart, you'll be able to throw yourself into that person's arms with all of your being.

Minnie, it's just like you told me it's time to stop runnin' and take on this church, but now I'm tellin' you, it's time to stop runnin' and take on anyone who tries to hold back our daughter from being and doing her very best.


For too long, I've drifted between two good men, who I never meant to mislead. And so I've come to the realization that by being untrue to them, I've been untrue to myself. But I no longer wish for it to be that way.


Lucas: I hadn't heard from you; I thought perhaps...
Elizabeth: No. I just needed time to find my way back.
Lucas: I told you I would wait as long as I had to.
Elizabeth [chuckles]: You were ready to leave!
Lucas: And that would have been the biggest regret of my life. You're all that matters. You're all that's important. [glances at her hand] You've taken off your ring.
Elizabeth: Thank you for waiting for me.

Faith: So, how'd you do this, Nathan?
Nathan: I cut it on some barbed wire.
Faith: Chasin' cattle rustlers?
Nathan: Chasin' my hat. It flew off in the wind.

Elizabeth: Lucas, come in.
Lucas: Allow me to finish. Please. I appreciate your telling you took Nathan aside to assure him he wasn't to blame for Jack's death. But I have to admit, I witnessed the discussion.

I have one of these at the office; I do not need one in my house.
