Molly Greene: In the end, this isn't a story about a traffic light, or how cynicism can blind you or how politics can make you cynical. Or how somebody with nothing but good intent can triumph over insurmountable odds. Or how you're never too old for redemption. No, what this story is about is how a city can have a soul like any other living thing. And how that soul is kept alive by the people in the neighborhoods, in the stores, the churches, the bars, the backrooms, meeting halls and anywhere we gather together to get something done. And that, as they say, is all she wrote.

01x04 - The Paper Season 1 / Episode 4: - The Paper

Chuck Fishman: [voiceover] Life doesn't always come with a set of instructions. In fact, most of the time, it just comes. Every morning, like clockwork. It's there when you open your eyes, and it's still there even when you don't. Take my friend Gary, a regular guy. At least he was 'til the day life showed up at his doorstop, in spades. Now he spends half his time figuring out where the heck it all came from, and the other half wondering where it all goes. Face it, it's not necessarily all it's cracked up to be, having the jump on the rest of the world. Still, you go with what you got, and when what you got is tomorrow's news, well it's gotta be one of two things: either you're a day ahead, or everyone else is a day behind.

Marissa Clark: Well, you know, Gary, people change. I mean, look at you.
Gary Hobson: Oh, yeah. A lot of people have families. Instead, I get a cat.
Marissa Clark: Heroes never have it easy.
Gary Hobson: Well, the only reason anyone ever called me a hero is because I get this paper. [gives milk to the cat] Here.
Marissa Clark: Maybe you get that paper because you're a hero.
01x03 - Baby Season 1 / Episode 3: - Baby

Chuck: Sometimes things work out, sometimes they don't. Whether or not you have a crystal ball, life is a search for answers and everybody's looking all at the same time, in the same general place which is probably why we keep tripping over each other.

Just remember to keep your spirits up and your eyes wide open, and remember, there's always tomorrow.

Whether you'd be rich or poor, a hero or a loser, lucky in love, unlucky in life, what would you do? What if, by some magic, you found the power to really change things: people, events... maybe even your life? Would you even know where to start? Maybe you can't know... until it happens.

Chuck Fishman: [voice over] It's easy to be cynical. Especially today, when it looks like all our heroes are crooks, our role models frauds. Every now and again, however, when you least expect it, the real thing comes along: someone who can find the heart inside the cynic and give those who hold nothing sacred something to believe in. It's not always easy telling the good from the bad, even if you do get tomorrow's paper today. Why, is why. Sometimes, to find the answers, you have to look in your heart.
