- Lilly – What's a soulmate?
- Dawson – It's uh... Well, it's like a best friend, but more. It's the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else. It's someone who makes you a better person. Actually, they don't make you a better person, you do that yourself because they inspire you. A soul mate is someone who you carry with you forever. It's the one person who knew you and accepted you and believed in you before anyone else did or when no one else would. And no matter what happens, you'll always love her. Nothing can ever change that. Make sense?
- ―Life, the universe and everything
- „It's not about getting it right... It's about knowing when it's wrong and doing something about it”
- —Andie to Pacey
- „It's interesting how people use that expression, life and death. As if to imply that life is the opposite of death, but birth is the opposite of death. Life...has no opposite”
- Michelle Williams added the 'love to the tips of your fingers' bit to her monologue.
