Ani Achola: I am sorry that Monty's dead. I am. Justin tells me he could be... loyal... and fearless. And that he stood up for his friends. I'm sorry that Bryce is dead. He was my friend, and I believe he would've shown the world that redemption is possible. But they both caused pain while they were alive. They caused great pain to a number of people. And it is time for that suffering to end. So, let the dead bury the dead, Deputy Standall. Let the dead bury the dead.
Ani Achola (narration): The team had made Justin feel like he belonged again. Until that night. He watched Monty, Zach and Luke, how it all seemed so easy for them. And he felt more and more lost. Sports had always been the cure for Justin, the thing that made him feel alive. But on the field that night... he felt more alone than ever.
Bryce Walker: We shouldn't be doing this. It's not good.
Ani Achola: Well, it seemed good for you. Just now.
Bryce Walker: I mean for you. Why would you... Why do you even want to?
Ani Achola: I like you, I guess.
Bryce Walker: Why? I don't even like me.
Ani Achola: Hey. Hey, come on now...
Bryce Walker: There's something wrong with me. There's something seriously wrong. You shouldn't be here. I'm fucked up.
Ani Achola: Maybe not forever.
Zach Dempsey: If I actually do have free time and I want to spend it, I have to come up with a really elaborate lie.
Ani Achola: Oh, yeah. I know. I'm a member of at least six non-existent academic clubs.
Zach Dempsey: Six?
Ani Achola: Mm-hmm.
Zach Dempsey: Can I join?
Ani Achola: Oh, absolutely.
Clay Jensen: I hate costumes. Like, I even hate Halloween, and I love candy.
Ani Achola: You spend your life hiding from people and you hate costumes. Okay.
Clay Jensen: Don't do that "I'm quite perceptive" thing, it's annoying.
Ani Achola: But what you're wearing now is a costume. We're all in costumes all the time, trying to become the thing we're wearing.
Clay Jensen: If that were true, I would've become a hoodie a long time ago.
Ani Achola (narration): When you judge someone by their past... it can make that past impossible to escape. And it can make you miss something that's right in front of you in the present. Because maybe the person you're looking for isn't so obvious. Maybe there's someone you haven't even thought of yet. Because we all have a past.
Ani Achola (narration): Let's face it, it was easy to think those things about Tyler because, well, Tyler was weird. All those characteristics they say killers have, lack of social skills, a fascination with death, a deep-seated feeling of rejection from the world... Tyler had them all. You wouldn't know it just by looking, but deep down, Tyler had the ingredients of that killer cocktail. Angry, young, and man. Tyler was unpredictable, you see. He seemed primed to snap all over again. I wouldn't find out why until much later. None of us would.
Ani Achola (narration): I'm a liar. No question. The truth can be dangerous. Lies are easier. Until they aren't anymore.
