Teen Wolf -
1. Sheriff Stilinksi: “I would destroy every piece of evidence to protect you. I would burn the whole Sheriff's station to the ground." (Nirat Anop, and Dahne)
2. Stiles: “I feel like it's more than guilt though. I feel like I lost something, you know? I feel like I can't get it back.” Sheriff: “You won't, not entirely, but you get a little bit by forgiving yourself. And since that's not always the easiest thing to do, maybe you start by forgiving someone else, someone who probably really needs it.” (Nirat Anop and Dahne)
3. Sheriff: "Stiles, I can't protect you if I don't know the truth. Did you really feel like you couldn't tell me?" Stiles: "I couldn't tell anyone." Sheriff: "Honestly, did you think that I wouldn't believe it was self-defense?
Stiles: "But what if it wasn't? What if I told you I wanted him dead?" Sheriff: "I'd believe you. I also believe that wanting someone dead and murdering them are two VERY different things." (Dahne)
4. Stiles: "And what about upholding the law? What about Kira?" Sheriff: "Kira was a mistake. I guess I'm learning how to bend." Stiles: "So what? It just goes away?" Sheriff: "Not for you. Problem now is how to bear this burden. This kind of thing is not at all uncommon in law enforcement - a fatal mistake, a partner who dies, one who gets paralyzed. Stiles, you carry that with you and sometimes it doesn't truly feel okay again until there's…there's a kind of counterbalance." Stiles: "Like what?" Sheriff: "Like instead of taking a life, you manage to save one. Something like that can help, maybe only for a moment. Look the real conflict you're having now is between your head and your heart. Your head…your head knows that the only crime you committed is surviving but your heart…your heart still thinks it was murder. So I guess you…uh, you've got to get your heart to catch up to your head." (Dahne)
5. Stiles: "I still hate that tattoo." Scott: "I know." (Dahne)
6. Scott: "We need help. If Theo's got his own pack now, then we need ours and we have to get the others back." Stiles: "The others? You mean Kira who's currently battling a homicidal fox spirit inside of her, Malia who isn’t even speaking to either one of us, Lydia who's stuck in Eichen House, and Liam who almost killed you?" Scott: "Also known as our best friends." (Dahne)
7. Scott: "What did you do?" Theo: "Found some new friends. I don't take rejection well." (Dahne)

1. Diana: "Honestly, it's like you've got some form of literary Tourette's."
2. Liza: "Have you ever heard of punctuation?"
3. Liza: "Okay, what just happened there?" Maggie: "That's your daughter having a life. I suggest you do the same."
4. Liza: "Okay, can we stop doing the math now?"
