Mossy:  When you’re on spotify, i-tunes, Pandora…  If you’re lucky you’ll be opening for [Renae Taylor].  If you’re really lucky, maybe she’ll open for you.

Mossy to Johnny:  I understand that this isn’t your thing anymore, but now you’re squashing her dreams too?

Johnny:  I have made every mistake I could possibly make as a dad, but think about what you’re doing.  Better yet, think about why you’re doing it.  … Doing it behind our backs???

Mossy:  You sound just like your father, and it’s pathetic.  Whatever’s going on inside your head, let it go.

Grace:  I’m opening up for Ranae Taylor.  This is huge.  This is why I came out here.

Quintin:  Grace, why do you want this?  Why do you want any of this?  Because if you want it just for yourself, there’s always going to be something missing.
Grace:  You sound like my dad.

Quintin:  We know it in our heads, but do we really own it?  Is Jesus Christ really who we’re living for?  I think your problem’s a bigger problem than your dad.  I think you’re fighting God.  So open for Ranae, don’t open.  Just stop fighting God and when you do that, you’ll find what you’re looking for.
