Notable dialogueEdit

Hayley Patterson (to Roy Cropper): "Hope? Roy, I feel like the world's poking fun at me, like it always has done, first giving me the wrong body, and now giving me a wedding and snatching it away from me at the last minute. If the world can do that to me, what have I got to hope for?"


Roy Cropper: "I want to say thank you to Hayley, for walking into my life and bringing me a kind of happiness that I thought was reserved only for other people. Thank you."
