9.08, You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello;
K: “How long are you staying?”
Dy: “I don’t know. But I’m still waiting for my hug.”
M: (about Dy) “Who’s that guy?”
K: “He’s, um, an old friend.”
9.09, Life Support;
S: (about Dy and K) “They once thought they were soulmates.”
M: “Before Brandon?”
S: “Before Brandon. During Brandon. After Brandon … ”
Dy: “A lot of people can help Kelly with her problems. I can just help her forget them.”
K: (to D) “Okay, there is nothing going on between me and Dylan …”
Dy: “You and I have been a lot of things to each other over the years, Kel.” […] “Now, as far as ‘chandeliers’ go …”
K: (smirks) “I have a vague recollection.”
Dy: (taunting K) “You missed what we had.”
K: “Your being here scares me.”
K: “I hadn’t planned on it.”
Dd: (about M) “He seems pretty smart. Kelly thinks so.”
Dy: “Do tell.”
Dd: “Sure. As soon as you admit she’s why you came back.”
M: “About Dylan, I’m not in the middle there either.”
K: “There’s nothing to be in the middle of.”
M: “Well, you seem to be the only one who thinks so.”
K: “Okay. I admit, his showing up did take me a little by surprise.
M: “Kelly, before you say anything you don’t believe, listen to me. Whatever you and Dylan need to work through, it’s fine by me.”
K: “My grandfather saw some of the worst fighting in WWII. Yet most of his memories are of how beautiful Europe is.
Dy: “Yeah, it is. Sometimes unimaginably so.
K: “He went there to fight a war. When it was over, he came home. Why did you?”
Dy: “Nice try.”
K: “I thought so.”
Dy: “I came back because this is my home. I missed my friends.”
K: “That’s a good answer.”
Dy: “You want a better answer? I came back because I missed you.”
9.10, The Following Options;
K: “Get me out of here, Dylan.”
K: “You gonna stay?”
Dy: “You want me to push ya?”
K: “I keep telling myself we’re just old friends.”
Dy: “Does it work for you?”
K: “Not always.”
M: (to K, about Dy and himself) “Spare me the details. It’s not that complicated. On the one hand there’s this guy you once had something great with. And on the other hand, there’s this really great guy you could miss out on.”
9.11, Marathon Man;
Dy: “Still can’t believe you’re in Mexico, huh?”

K: “But Mr. Marchette is dead.”
G: “You knew that and you didn’t tell Dylan?”
K: “I thought he knew.”
G: “You didn’t ask him about it?”
K: “The subject was off-limits. People close to him respected that, okay?”
M: (about Dy) “So you’re telling me when he holds a couple at gunpoint his heart is in the right place.”
K: “He left town the day after his wife was buried. He’s had zero closure. When can I talk to him?” […] “I’m just worried. I don’t know what’s going on.”
K: (to M) “I’ll say it one more time. There’s nothing going on between me and Dylan.”
K: “You knew Dylan had a habit.”
M: “Yeah, and I tried getting him to stop.”
K: “I’m sure you did. But it didn’t work. And if you had told me or David – “
M: “Nothing would have happened, Kelly!”
K: “How do you know that?!”
M: “What he told me was privileged. He was my client.”
K: “Oh. He was ‘privileged’. I’m sorry. He’s my friend! And he needs help, okay?”
G: “I think I should be with Dylan.”
K: “So do I.”
G: “Uh, if Dylan needs anything, I’ll call you guys.”
K: “He’s needed plenty. You haven’t called.”
K: “If either one of us ever freaked and ran off, we had this pact. This is where we would run to.”

K: (to G) “Dylan is my friend. He has been for over 9 years.”
M: “Where’s Kelly?”
G: “Take a wild guess.”
[K watching over Dy in hospital]
M: “Not surprising. Someone always seems to pay for Dylan’s mistakes.”
K: “Maybe you should go.”
M: “Maybe we both should. Kelly, let someone else watch over him. Like, say, his girlfriend?”
K: “I am not going anywhere.”
K: (waiting for news on Dy in hospital) “It’s only been 20 minutes. It feels like a year.”

Dy: “What, I’m supposed to just note that you’re okay?”

9.17, Survival Skills;
Dy: “Talked to Matt?”
K: “Briefly. Enough to let him know I’m here if he needs me.”
Dy: “He’s a lucky man.”
Dy: “Look, I’ve only ever connected with two things in this life. One of them is dead.”
K: “How about the other one?”
Dy: “She’s sitting right across from me.”
9.18, Slipping Away;
K: “Are you gonna help me or not?”
Dy: “Sure. As soon as you admit it’s gonna be fun.”
K: “Thank you for coming down here with me. It means a lot.”
Dy: “Well, when I get my miracle second chance, you’d do the same for me.”
K: “So you would want Antonia back even if you knew you’d have to give her up again?”
Dy: “Make no mistakes, Kel. I would do anything to get Antonia back. When you know that there’s an end, you, uh … it allows you to orchestrate and say the things you always wanted to say. Wouldn’t you want that?”
K: “With who?”
Dy: “With somebody that you once loved. Who meant a lot to you and then, for whatever reason, just wasn’t there anymore.”
[Next Dy/K scene, they make love]
Dy: “Last night was pretty great, Kel.”
Dy: “You want to know why she’s nervous? Well, look, we used to date, right? Me and her. And we came down here last night and … you know, things happen. Apparently, some of the old magic came back. We both got in touch with feelings that we thought were behind us.”
K: “That is not true.”
Dy: “Especially her, cause that girl’s gonna need a lot of therapy.”
K: “What are you talking about?”
Dy: “But ultimately what happened is … she seduces me. Okay?”
K: “I seduced you?! You were all over me!”

Dy: “I’m sure that you do. I’m also sure that, some day, you’re gonna want to be with me again.”
M: “You know, I used to have a hard time with you two spending so much time together.”
Dy: “Well, that’s because Kelly follows her heart.”
G: “How are Matt and Kelly?”

G: (seeing Dy/K hug) “Ah, the happy couple …”
M: “Please. This is not about Cole Younger. It’s about who it’s always about.”
K: “Dylan …”

K: “Dylan McKay.”
D: “Were you really hypnotized? This is me you’re talking to.”
K: “Yes. I mean, I think so. I don’t remember choosing Dylan over Matt and I have no idea why I would do that.”
D: “Maybe because that’s how you really feel?”
K: “I’m here to apologize, okay? For last night. For the [...]”
G: “For not being able to shake my boyfriend?”
G: “Can you do that? Can you promise me you’ll let Dylan go?”
K: “I promise.”
9.23, Local Hero;
Dy: “I’m servicing a bowl of cereal. It’s in dire need of some milk.”
K: “Oh, a tragic tale …”
K: “Okay, so what did you want to talk about?”
Dy: “Nothing. I lied. See, I, you know, figure running into you is the best thing that’s gonna happen to me today, so I don’t want you to slip away.”
K: “I’m not avoiding you, if that’s what you think.”
Dy: “We never see each other anymore, Kel.”
K: “No, no. Matt and I were at the AfterDark last night.”
Dy: “It’s not what I mean. I mean you and me, alone.”
K: “That’s not a good idea.”
Dy: “Why is that, because friends aren’t supposed to want to sleep together?”
K: “And we don’t.”
Dy: “We don’t want to? Or we just … don’t?”
K: “No, we were just having coffee.”
Dy: “Yeah. Decaf!”

Dy: “… Nothing.”/ K: “Talking.”
S: “Oh, boy.”
S: “A cup of coffee? Please! You two may as well sleep together. You know, you two don’t really fit. And yet, in some kind of weird way, you do fit. We see it. We all see it.” […] “So, for our sake, get it over with already. Thank you. Goodnight.”
Dy: “I should go.”
K: “You think? How come?”
Dy: “Cause of some of the things he said. Because he’s right.”
Dy: “Think about what’s right for us, Kel. […] Maybe it’s time for a change.”
K: “Well, don’t change for me.”
M: “Why do you hang onto him? Do you enjoy it?”
K: “He is my friend!”
9.24, The End Of This World As We Know It;
[re: M/K sex tape]
Dy: “Show’s over.”
G: “No, are you kidding? We are definitely watching this. Come on.”
Dy: “I said no.”
Dy: “I do not want to drag Kelly and Matt into this.”
G: “Of course you don’t, cause you want to protect Kelly, right?”
Dy: “He loves you and you love him. It was difficult for me to see that. A connection.”

Dy: “[...] You found someone that makes you happy. I wish it was me.”

Dy: “That was different. I’ve known her all my life.”

Dy: “Great girls. […]”
Dy: (to K) “Look, I - I need to talk to a friend.”

Dy: “I’m looking for Kelly.”

Dy: (to G, about K) “Look, here’s the deal. We were supposed to meet and she didn’t show up. And she did not call me, so I am worried about her.”
Dy: “What happened last night? You didn’t show. I was worried.”
K: “I’m fine.”
Dy: “I can see that you’re not.”
Dy: “Kel, you’re my best friend. Okay? I mean, I called you. I said I was thinking about using heroin. And when you guys have these little interventions, you say you’d do anything – that you’d walk through fire to be there for me.”
K: “I would.”
K: “… I was raped.” (tentatively, he holds her)
Dy: “You’re gonna get through this. You’re gonna be fine.”
K: “I don’t know.”
Dy: “Whatever it takes, that’s what we’re gonna do. I promise you. You’ll be fine.”

Dy: “How could you do that?”
M: “Do what?”
Dy: “That! All of this. Look, she doesn’t need a scene like this right now.”
M: “Dylan, she wanted to come here, so I brought her. Don’t even pretend to know what she needs because neither of us do.” [Cue K freaking out at the AfterDark]
