(After listening to the tapes for the first time...)
Bryce Walker: Maybe I should be dead. Not Hannah.
Tony Padilla: Maybe no one should be.
Bryce Walker: So, what... what the f*ck do I do now?
Tony Padilla: You deal with your sh*t.
Bryce Walker: Just like that? Just deal with my sh*t, that's it?
Tony Padilla: Bryce... Bryce, that's everything.
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 f*cked up.
Ani Achola: Maybe not forever.
(Tyler is pointing a gun at Bryce...)
Bryce Walker: Justin helped you. And I have hurt Justin enough in this life. So, I'm not gonna narc on him now.
Tyler Down: So, it was for Justin?
Bryce Walker: Those guys saved you, man. That's decent. Maybe I'd like to think someone would do that for me.
Tyler Down: No. No, we're not the same. You hurt people. I didn't.
Bryce Walker: Aren't you here to hurt me now? So, do it, man. Seriously. If it'll make you feel better, go ahead. You'd be doing me a favor.
Tyler Down: You don't want to die.
Bryce Walker: Come on, dude. You could kill the monster. This town would celebrate. You're right, I hurt people. I don't get to start over. 'Cause no one's gonna let me. So, go ahead. Shoot me.
Bryce Walker: I know what Tyler tried to do. And I know you guys covered it up. I saw you and Jess run out of the gym that night, so I looked out the side door. I saw everything. The cops pulled me in because, you know, I'm the rapist, so... But I kept my f*cking mouth shut. I didn't say a word. And I'm not going to.
Justin Foley: So, what do you want?
Bryce Walker: I don't want anything from you.
Justin Foley: Then why'd you text me? Listen... Don't talk to me again. Stay away from Jessica. Stay away from her f*cking neighborhood, from wherever she might be, or I will f*cking kill you!
Jessica Davis: I have a family who are amazing. My friends are amazing. I have a boyfriend who cares about me and treats me really well.
Bryce Walker: I'm happy for you, truly. I only want the best for you, Jess.
Jessica Davis: Yeah... but it's weird, because no matter what I do... you're still on top of me, and I still can't breathe.
Bryce Walker: People talk a lot about what it means to be a member of a team. The brotherhood, the sense of belonging to something greater than yourself. It's about fighting together, but it's also about family. About knowing who will be there for you, always. And when it's right, when it's 11 guys working as one, there's nothing like it. No greater feeling in the world. Maybe that's why Hannah pursued me, because she had never felt that... that sense of belonging.
Marcus Cole: I planted a seed for you. See, now if you get called up, they already think Hannah liked you. And if she came on to you, and you let her down gently, who knows what kind of lies she might've made up?
Bryce Walker: Well, f*ck me. Yeah. That's some high-level Jedi sh*t right there, buddy.
Bryce Walker: I can't believe Hannah Baker finally came to one of my parties.
Hannah Baker: Well, it looks like it's almost over.
Bryce Walker: No, not at all. This is the best time of night. The drunks are all passed out, posers are gone. Only the cool people are left.
Hannah Baker: And I qualify as "cool people"?
Bryce Walker: Hell, yeah, you do. Coolest chick in the junior class. And the hottest.
