Jonas : Father, do you love me?
Mother : Jonas, precision of language. Please.
Lilly : What does "love" mean?
Father : I got him, Lilly
Mother : Jonas used a word so antiquated that it no longer has any application. Okay?
Father : If you ask "Do you enjoy me?" the answer is certainly yes; or, do Mother and I take pride in your accomplishments? Well, of course we do. Do you understand?
Jonas : I wish I had been there when the memories returned. They were the truth. The Elders and their rules were the lie, so I do NOT apologize. I knew Fiona was safe, that I'd see her again, and that I held the future there in my arms.
Jonas : The Giver had led us here, to this house. It was real. From far behind me, from the place I had left, I thought I heard music, too. Perhaps it was only an echo, but it was enough. It would lead us all home.
