Erin Bell: [to Shelby] I’ve spent my whole life scrapping, jealous, hungry, scared. I want to find something decent, something good. You can be better than me.
Erin Bell: [to Shelby] I lied, I stole, and worse. People are dead. It’s my fault.
Erin Bell: [to Shelby] I know what it’s like to grow up bad, jealous, hungry, scared. I didn’t want that for you.
Erin Bell: [to Shelby] I’m mad. I’m still mad. It’s burnt a circuit in my brain.
Erin Bell: I just wanted one good thing.
[referring to the dead body]
Erin Bell: Who is it?
Detective: No ID, no idea.
DiFranco: [to Erin] I know your whole story.
[referring to Erin]

Chris: If we do this, we accept the consequences.
Erin Bell: Yes.
Chris: Do you love me?
Erin Bell: You know I do.
DiFranco: [to Erin] You chose to play cops and robbers, and you lost.
