Clay Jensen: How in the hell am I supposed to listen to this?
Tony Padilla: I think the asshole answer is you put the headphones on, the cassette tape in, and you press play.
Clay Jensen: That is the asshole answer, isn't it?
Tony Padilla: Yeah, but it's true.
Clay Jensen: Did I kill Hannah Baker?
Tony Padilla: No, she took her own life, Clay. That was her choice. But you, me, everyone on these tapes, we all let her down. We didn't let her know that she had another choice. Maybe we could have saved her, maybe not. I think it's impossible to know.
Clay Jensen: Answer the f*cking question. Knowing what you know, believing what you believe, knowing me, knowing her, and what's on these tapes... did I kill Hannah Baker?
Tony Padilla: Yeah.
Clay Jensen: And this just gets worse, right?
Tony Padilla: You afraid?
Clay Jensen: Yeah. I'm gonna listen anyway.
Tony Padilla: All right, okay, I’ll make you a deal. Listen to the tapes, all of them. And then we’ll talk. We’ll do whatever we have to do.
Clay Jensen: And you’ll help me?
Tony Padilla: Always.
Clay Jensen: So that guy Brad… is he your boyfriend now?
Tony Padilla: I hope he’s still my boyfriend. He’s been pretty annoyed lately because… I’ve been spending all my time with another guy. You.
Clay Jensen: I thought maybe… I thought maybe you were in love with her.
Tony Padilla: Clay… you know I’m gay, right?
Clay Jensen: What? No, I didn’t know that. How was I supposed to know that?
Tony Padilla: I thought everyone knew it.
Clay Jensen: I don’t think everyone knows.
Tony Padilla: A lot of people know it.
Tony Padilla (to Clay about Hannah): They’ve got her in a body bag. I remember thinking, “There’s no handles on that bag. How are they gonna pick her up? How are they gonna carry her?” And they just grabbed the bag… and threw her in the ambulance. Just like that.
Tony Padilla (to Clay): Look, I liked Hannah. She was a friend. But the girl was a lot. She was drama. And I was apparently the only guy at Liberty who didn’t grab her ass or stare at her tits. And so I always got to hear about it… and on that particular day, I didn’t want to deal, so I let her walk away.
Ryan Shaver: Just take a brochure. They have scholarships.
Tony Padilla: I don’t need a brochure, don’t need your scholarship, and I don’t need four years of wasted time. I have skills.
Hannah Baker: And a sweet Mustang.
