(Part.Chapter.Paragraph)
Quote #1

I was hoping that the kid who told the truth [about Sean] could become a friend of mine, but I think he was just being a good guy by telling. (1.2.13)

No one makes friends by hoping—it requires action. And good taste in TV.

Quote #2

"Sometimes people use thought to not participate in life." (1.8.32)

When done in moderation, these people are called authors. Oh, we kid. But maybe Charlie will use his observant wallflower skills to become a writer.

Quote #3

I'm sorry I haven't written to you in a couple of weeks, but I have been trying to "participate" [sic] like Bill said. (1.10.2)

Don't use sarcastic air quotes with us, Charlie!
