Clay Jensen: Hannah Baker came into my life at the end of one summer, like a star that fell to Earth. Like nothing I had seen and no one I had ever met. She was funny, and smart, and moody, and... and maddening, and beautiful. And... I loved her. I loved her so much. And I ask her every day why she did what she did. But I get no answers. She took those with her when she went. Leaving me, all of us, angry, empty, confused. And I know that hurt won't ever go away. But there will come a day when I don't feel it every minute. And the anger won't be so hot, and the other feelings will fade, and I'll be left with only love. A good friend once said to me, "I can love you and still let you go." So, Hannah... I love you, and I let you go. I miss you. And I hope that wherever you go next, you feel peace, you feel safe, in a way you never did here. Wherever you go next, I hope you know that I love you.
Clay Jensen: [to the priest] Can I ask you, do you believe in the immortal soul?
Priest: I do.
Clay Jensen: And do you think Hannah is going to hell because she killed herself?
Priest: I don't. I think the God I believe in, a just God, would have mercy on a soul like hers. And if God forgives her, we should. I believe we should follow His example, sure, but it's not always easy.
Clay Jensen: And do you think Does God forgive us? The people who let her down?
Priest: I think He does. Clay, you don't have to believe in the immortal soul to believe that people live on with us.
Clay Jensen: Wait, what do you mean?
Priest: Just that we've lost Hannah, but not the things she gave us. Compassion, understanding, love. Those don't go away.
Clay Jensen: We can get better. We can do better, but we still live in a world that is out to break us any way it can.
Jessica Davis: Your Honor, when we leave this courtroom, Bryce Walker gets to leave convinced that he chose the wrong girl to have sex with. I get to leave constantly looking over my shoulder for monsters dressed up as the popular kid, constantly on edge and assuming the worst in every boy. The sentence you decide today can tell Bryce Walker what he did was wrong. It can say that to every boy, every man who behaves like he does. And it can say to victims like me that our story matters.
Olivia Baker: Hannah was my dream. And now I get to dream for Hannah as well as for myself. And so do all of you. So, please, dream your dreams. And dream them for Hannah, and don't let anyone take them away from you. Don't ever let them go.
Clay: The thing I'm most afraid of is forgetting you
Hannah: Then don't
Clay: The thing I'm second most afraid of is I'll never be able to let you go
Clay Jensen: [when Tyler plans to shoot up the school dance] 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 fucking 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. Come on, Tyler. Please?
Tyler Down: There's nothing else I can do.
Clay Jensen: There is. We'll figure it out. Okay? I swear.
Montgomery de la Cruz: [to Bryce] Fucking Tyler Down is back.
Bryce Walker: So?
Montgomery de la Cruz: So, I wanna break his head open.
Bryce Walker: Yeah, that's a great idea at this particular time.
Montgomery de la Cruz: The field, the thing with Marcus. He cost us our season. We need to do something.
Bryce Walker: We are not gonna do a goddamn thing. I'm on probation.
Montgomery de la Cruz: Right, I know. I got you. I'll take care of it.
Bryce Walker: Your father didn't beat you hard enough 'cause you're still a fucking idiot. The last time you tried to help, you almost fucked up my whole plea deal.
Montgomery de la Cruz: Well, none of it came back to you.
Bryce Walker: No one was gonna believe I didn't know about all the shit that you did. I had to give you my goddamn lawyer. I would've taken the fall if I had to. I kept you clean. What did you think would happen if you killed Clay Jensen in my car?
Montgomery de la Cruz: I knew those kids could fuck everything up for us and they did.
Bryce Walker: Well, you helped.
Montgomery de la Cruz: I... tell me what you want me to do. Okay? I'll make it right.
Bryce Walker: I want you to leave it alone and leave me alone. We're done.
Clay: Hannah Baker came into my life at the end of one summer like a star that fell to earth; like nothing I had seen; like no one I'd ever met. She was funny and smart and moody... and maddening... and beautiful. And, I loved her. I loved her so much. And I ask her every day why she did what she did, I get no answers. She took those with her when she went. Leaving me - all of us - angry, empty, and confused. And I know that hurt won't ever go away. But there will come a day when I don't feel it every minute. And the anger won't be so hot, and the other feelings will fade. And I'll be left with only love. A good friend once said to me, I can love you and still let you go. So, Hannah, I love you and I let you go. I'm gonna miss you... And I hope that wherever you go next, you feel peace, you feel safe, in a way that you never did here. Wherever you go next, I hope you know that I love you.
