Wille: This doesn't have to change anything between us. We're still us. It's just that we can't be seen together.
Simon: If I'm someone you have to hide...
Wille: But... Don't you realize all hell would break lose if I come out? How can you ask me to do that?
Simon: I'm not asking you to do that. You just expect everything to be on your terms. You... You need to figure out what you want. And you can take all the time you need. And I respect that. But you have to do it by yourself. I don't want to be anyone's secret.
Simon: You have to give people a chance.
Sara: Simon, you can't always just give everybody a chance. That's your biggest problem! You're just always trying to help everybody! First you tried to help Dad, then me, and now Wilhelm. You keep letting people piss on you!
Simon: At least I don't piss on my family, Sara. And I'm not trying to be someone I'm not.
Sara: No one likes me when I'm myself.
Simon: I like you when you are yourself!
Sara: Why did you do it?
August: I don't even know myself. It just happened.
Sara: I thought you and Wilhelm were friends.
August: Yeah. True.
Sara: So why?
August: Wilhelm's got everything! And he just spits on it. I've tried to help him several times, but... I mean, Erik took his role seriously. Wille, he just doesn't care. He's an embarrassment to the whole royal family.
Sara: That doesn't give you the right.
(Drunk and drugged up Wille is calling Simon...)
Wille (to Simon): I've found it out. You see, everything is fake. Everything is fake. Everything in the world is fake. It's, like, you know... The grass on the football field isn't even grass. It's... it's plastic! It's like bright but at night. It's night! I know that much. But why is it bright? All the people are fake. They're made out of metal. But I like you. And that is not fake.
Felice (about Wille): We just talked. We just talked about his brother.
August: Erik was like a brother to me too, and you know that. Your focus should be on comforting me so that I can comfort him. Give me the jacket! Give it to me. (takes Wille's jacket away from her and leaves)
Madison: Dump him.
Simon: What did you think? About my singing.
Wille: It was nice. Hmm. I heard so many voices, you know? Like, everyone up there on that stage, like, they were standing there beside you and... they were, like, lost in their own voices, in their own music. Do you know what I mean?
Simon: Yeah. Totally.
Wille: And then you sang, like, kind of... like, you were almost the loudest. And then I heard that you were, like, kind of... You were singing straight from your heart.
August: I understand that you want to feel normal, go to a normal school, meet normal girls, go to normal parties. But how did that work out? The problem is that normal people will never see you as one of them. But here you're among your own. We could murder someone, and nobody would say a word. I promise you. Who wants to be normal anyway?
