Bryce Walker (Clay's hallucination): Hey, buddy. Ah... you knew this was coming, right? The dead don't stay dead in your life. Not for long.
Clay Jensen: You're not here.
Bryce Walker (Clay's hallucination): You think I'm gone? You think you got rid of me? I'm f*cking immortal, Jensen. I'll live as long as you do. Every time you look at Jessica, or think about Hannah... or look at Ani, I'll be right there.
Clay Jensen: F*ck you.
Bryce Walker (Clay's hallucination): You think you're gonna get out of this town, go off to college... I'll be there. Graduate, get some sh*t job, I'll be there. Or maybe you get some sweet gig in finance, maybe you'll be a lawyer, like your mom, and I will be all over that sh*t. I'll be everywhere you look as long as you live.
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.
Clay Jensen: Are you... Are you okay?
Justin Foley: No, man. No, I'm not. I'm... I'm f*cking sad.
Clay Jensen: You... You are?
Justin Foley: Yeah, I've known him since I was eight. He was the first person that gave a sh*t about me, the first person to look after me, man. He was my f*cking brother.
Clay Jensen: I feel like he didn't look out for you, though.
Justin Foley: Dude, you don't know what you're talking about. Okay, Clay? You don't know everything. You think you have this idea that... You knew what you knew. He was a f*cking person, Clay. A human being. Now he's f*cking dead.
Clay Jensen: Tyler, they know you're hurting, we all are. And I don't know what to do about it, either. Okay? I tried hurting other people. I tried hurting you, and it didn't f*cking help, man. It doesn't do any good. Listen to me. It doesn't! Tyler, listen. You don't get out of this alive. And I don't want you to die. I-I don't want you to die. If you think this is the way, if you really think this'll change a goddamn thing and not just be another f*cking tragedy that adults cry about for a week and then forget, if you really think this is gonna be different, then do what you gotta do.
Olivia Baker: I wasn't sure if I should share this with you, but after hearing what you said, I think... I think it's all right. I found it on one of the old computers when I was cleaning up the store. Hannah wrote it.
Clay Jensen: "Reasons why not."
Olivia Baker: You're on there. At least once, possibly twice. Did... did she call you "Helmet"?
Clay Jensen: Yeah, she did.
Olivia Baker: Eleven reasons. She came up just short. But she left so many out. You know that, don't you? No matter how many reasons there might be "why," there are always more "why not."
Clay Jensen: Me and my parents... wanted to see if you might want them to adopt you.
Justin Foley: Wait, what?
Clay Jensen: Like, adopt you into our family.
Justin Foley: You mean, like, I'd be your brother?
Clay Jensen: Well, I'm-I'm not familiar with all the lingo, but...
Justin Foley: Wait. Why are you asking me and not them?
Clay Jensen: Because it was their idea, to be honest. And at first, I thought it sounded, um... idiotic. And they left it up to me, seeing as I was the person who brought you in their life in the first place. And... maybe it's a good idea, so... Are you... Are you crying?
Justin Foley: You know I'm, like, really f*cked up, right?
Clay Jensen: Well... A, yes. But you're clean and going to meetings. And B, I'm also f*cked up in certain ways, so...
Justin Foley: Okay, yeah. I'd like to be adopted, yeah.
Clay Jensen: Okay. Cool.
