Ryan Atwood: Please don't.
Seth: -'cause we're friends. First, I sailed to Catalina. Then, I sailed to Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara, I ran out of snacks. Freaked out a little bit, pawned my boat for cash, took a Greyhound to Portland.
Ryan Atwood: You took a bus.
Seth: Yeah. But don't say it like that, cause it was a local. Okay, have you ever been in one of those? Okay, not for the faint of heart.
Ryan Atwood: I can't believe after all that you took a bus.
Seth: Yeah. I think we're definitely going to have to come up with a better story for school though, that'd be good.
Ryan Atwood: I don't know, I like the bus idea. It's cool.

Ryan Atwood: How was it?
Seth: I had sex. [whispering]
Ryan Atwood: That bad?
Seth: No, not that bad it was just kind of weird.
Ryan Atwood: Weird?
Seth: Ye, but not kinky weird, more like awkward. But hey, you know what? It was my first time and she's a more experienced woman, that's to be expected. And I did make some faces in the middle that I wish that I could take back but I can't and there's also sort of a whiny noice that came out towards the end, that wasn't my finest hour. And I sucked so bad. I was like a fish flopping around on dry land. Ryan, I was Nemo and I just wanted to go home.

Ryan Atwood: Yeah... no. It's crazy.
Oliver Trask: Hmm.

Oliver Trask: Here's the deal, Ryan, and it's nothing personal. But Marissa and I? We just connect. She understands me, gets me. And hey, I don't know if there's only one person on the planet you're supposed to be with, but when she and I are together, sure feels that way.

Oliver Trask: I'm sorry, you and Marissa? Come on, man, you're from different worlds.
Ryan Atwood: You stay away from her.
Oliver Trask: Can't fight fate, man. I mean, I didn't even have to lift a finger and look what happened to you guys. Because you're not supposed to be together. I'm not saying you didn't serve your purpose. And if it wasn't for you, she never would've gone to therapy, she never would've met me.
Ryan Atwood: I am not gonna let this happen!
Oliver Trask: At this point, who's gonna believe you? Walk away. You have a chance to really make something of yourself. Don't blow it over some chick you're not gonna care about in ten years. Okay? I really am sorry.
