Brandon: "No, no not at all."
Callie: "It's cause, well, from what I can tell, you don't seem pretty happy in the house."

Callie: "Why do you hate Wyatt so much?"
Brandon: "This isn't even about Wyatt, ok?"
(Callie stays silent).
Brandon: "I don't want you dating Wyatt because I don't want you dating anyone."
Callie: "I can't... I can't do this."
Brandon: "Well too bad."
Callie: "No, even having this conversation could get me and Jude kicked out of the house."
Brandon: "That would never happen! "
Callie: "You don't know that! Okay, two years ago Jude and I were in a really good foster home. Definitely the best one before coming here. And they had a son. And he was really nice to me, so we started hanging out. And then the parents found out, and he told them that it was my fault and that I was coming onto him. And the next day. The next day, they had me and Jude sent away, and the parents told the CPS some excuse, you know? They didn't want to admit their son was having a relationship with the trashy foster girl. So yeah, it can happen Brandon, cause it already did."
Brandon: "Well I'm not like him. I would never do that."
Callie: "Doesn't matter. It still ends the same way."

Callie: "Thanks for, uh, lending this to me. Thumbs up to Joe Diddian."

Callie: "I knew him a couple of years ago, from an old foster home, and thankfully he's out of my life, and I would just like to forget about him."
Wyatt: Wow, you really opened up there."

Brandon: "Oh so that means I dont have a right to be angry" (high voice)

I'm one of the lucky ones. You know, I found an amazing family, and I'm finally safe and loved, like, really, truly loved. And one of the things I've learned from my moms, from watching the way they've lived their lives, is that when you're lucky, it is your job to give something back.
