Howard 'Red' Stevens[edit]

  • The name's Howard Stevens — you can call me Red. I needed a lawyer for a few business ideas I have, a few still in the dream stages.
    • First telephone call to Theodore 'Ted' Hamilton

Jason Stevens[edit]

  • Honestly I don't know if I have my own dream, but I do know that I can help others fulfill theirs.
  • (To Emily in the chapel, looking at the statue of Jesus) I don't know much about God, or Jesus, but I do know that these arms are meant for you.

Dialogue: First Jasons dialogue with dead Howard's video record.[edit]

  • Howard: Jason. I made a lot of mistakes with our family, but, you are the one, I think I've hurt the most. The only way I can make it up to you is, not give you anything.

Jason: Pff! I knew it.

  • Howard: What I mean by that, is, I'm not give you anything just yet. So sit back down there. I've been thinking about this, for a long time - How can I give you something and not have it ruin you like your uncles and aunts, even some of the kids. So I want to give you a gift, a series of gifts, leading up to... well, I'm gonna call it the ultimate gift. If you fail in any way - it's over; you get nothing. And everything you do must be to Mr. Hamilton's satisfaction. You might want to make friends with him sooner rather than later.


  • Jason: Are you thinking about butterflies?

Emily: No, Jason. I'm looking at the stars.

  • Bill's lawyer: Excuse me, but my client wants to check all of his options.

Mr. Hamilton: Your client has no more options.
