George: Now I know I deserve whatever the hell I want.
Nick: And, what's that?
George: You. Us. And not just some on the side version of us. You holding my hand in the center of town. So much PDA that the world is gonna barf. I guess I just got so used to being the girl you keep a secret. Not the girl you take to dinner.
Nick: Well, then I'll make reservations.

Ace: I know lately you've been pummeled by life. Everything you've learned about your parents, and now...if you ever want to talk about anything, I'm here.
Nancy: I really appreciate that. If I find the words, I will share them with you.

Nancy: You killed Owen.
Josh: Well, if your boyfriend had just sent you the text like I asked him to, I would've let him go.
Nancy: You used him to lure me to you.
Josh: I tried. But, he wouldn't do it. He fought me, but I had to keep him quiet. It wasn't easy. He seemed to care more about you than his own life.

No, Ryan. You are not the victim here. You made it so that I believed everything you said. So I could never trust anyone else. You made me think that I didn't deserve any better. You made me think that I didn't want any better. You made me okay with being a dirty little secret because I was a 17-year-old girl from a poor family swept off her feet by some rich, older, married man. Because of you, I don't know how to be in a real relationship. It's all warped in my head because I thought that the way we were was the way things are supposed to be. I can't even hold a guy's hand in public because you taught me the wrong rules.

George

Nancy: I know what it feels like now. To have a secret that you don't want anybody to know, because if they find out it'll change anything.
Carson: I was afraid I was going to lose you.
Nancy: Keeping the secret changes everything, too.

Owen: I'm flying back to New York tonight. Why don't you come with me? I think after everything that's happened you deserve a few personal days.
Nancy: Yeah. Yeah, I do deserve that.

Nancy: Yeah, Lucy was pregnant. You guys were together on New Years Eve of 1999. Her due date was late September 2000. She died August 31st.
Ryan: Maybe she had the baby early, you know? She put it up for adoption?

This is a picture of Lucy as a baby from our yearbook. Compare and contrast. You look like you could be twins, Nancy. Why is that?

Ryan

Carson: Lucy's baby thrived. She grew up to be whip-smart and compassionate and kind and endlessly curious. And she loves solving mysteries.
Nancy: She's me. The baby is me.

Carson Drew did not kill Lucy Sable. She took her own life. And for twenty years, we told ourselves a story of a mysterious killer, when really the killer was us. This town. But I promise to remember the girl who lived, not the girl who died.

Abe: Who are you?
Ace: We're the busboys.
John: I'm the senior busboy.

Ace: Bone time.
John: It's pronounced forensic analysis.

Nancy Drew Quotes

Nancy: Nick and I are seeing each other. He seems to have an issue with me not acknowledging this publicly and has decided now is the time to rectify this.
Nick: Consider it rectified. I feel much better.

Carson: I've just been buried at work.
Nancy: Poor word choice, given recent events.
