7. When Only LOVE Can Keep You Warm ...
"I would love you in any way that I could. And if we could not touch, then I would draw strength from your beauty.

8. When You're Resolutions Aren't Going As Planned & You're So Angry
"Musing on the idea of setting someone on fire doesn't mean you really want to set them on fire. It's just the thought of it that makes you happy."— Olive Snook

10. When You DO Get Everything You Want

Ned: "Yes, I can. That's how I roll."
11. When Beginning A New Year…
“At that moment, in the town of Coeur d’Coeurs, events occurred that are not, were not, and should never be considered an ending. For endings, as it is known, are where we begin.” — Narrator
Here's to 2016!
