Once and Again (TV Series 1999–2002) Poster


Julia Whelan: Grace Manning



  • Grace Manning : Boys are so naive. I mean, sometimes you have to wonder how they even live.

  • Grace Manning : You know, she's just the kind of person that everybody worries whether she has a ride home. And, I guess, I'm just the sort of person people assume can walk.

  • Grace Manning : People should be allowed to fall in love with whoever they want. I mean, otherwise what's the point of living?

  • Grace Manning : [asking about Jessie]  Is she anorexic?

    Lily Manning : Grace!

    Grace Manning : Half the girls in my school are; what's the big deal?

  • Grace Manning : Sometimes I wonder why I ever hope for anything.

  • Grace Manning : Sometimes people just aren't who you need them to be, at like a certain moment, and unfortunately there's nothing you can do about it.

  • Grace Manning : This must be what nothing feels like.

  • Grace Manning : I'm all alone. Do you even realize that? Do you even know what that feels like?

    Lily Manning : No, honey, I don't. I've always been too afraid to find out what that feels like. I'm so glad that you're not.

  • Lily Manning : Grace, will you wipe it up, please?

    Grace Manning : I'm sorry, is my name Cinderella?

  • Grace Manning : I think they should invent a new word... a word that describes how you feel before you kiss someone. I think it's like when a bird decides that it can fly.

  • Aaron : Are you in love?

    Grace Manning : How could I know that?

  • Grace Manning : Y'know, I have this weird feeling that growing up is overrated.

  • Lily Manning : Oh, my God. Brian Garvin.

    Grace Manning : What happened to him?

    Lily Manning : He changed... into gay. I mean, he's gay.

    Grace Manning : So you made him gay?

    Lily Manning : No!

    Grace Manning : Are you sure?

  • [looking at their new baby sister] 

    Zoey Manning : I didn't know they came out with fingernails.

    Grace Manning : Your baby's gonna come out with painted fingernails.

    Zoey Manning : And yours is gonna come out with a copy of War And Peace.

  • [Lily and Rick are contemplating having more children] 

    Jessie Sammler : You guys should totally do it.

    Eli Sammler : Yeah, any kid you guys had would know every single word of 'The Philadelphia Story'.

    Grace Manning : Oh, and all those stupid tenor songs you listen to.

    [singing facetiously] 

    Grace Manning : I am a tenor! I love myself! Oh, I'm a tenor and I am so amazing! I looove myseeeeelf!

  • Eli Sammler : It's so weird that she doesn't miss me, 'cause I'm never gonna stop missing her.

    Grace Manning : I know.

    Eli Sammler : You're like the only person who does know.

    [they both slowly start to move their faces closer together] 

    Eli Sammler : [whispers]  that's a really pretty dress

    [lips are about to touch] 

    Grace Manning , Eli Sammler : [door swings open, Grace and Eli pull away as they see Jesse standing infront of them]  What?

    Jessie Sammler : They called off the wedding.

  • Eli Sammler : [Grace and Eli are in Eli's room smoking pot]  You want some water or something?

    [lifts a bottle of water in the air] 

    Grace Manning : No, that's okay...

    Eli Sammler : You sure? cause you keep moistening your lips...

    Grace Manning : That's a really weird word!

    Eli Sammler : What, lips?

    Grace Manning : Moisten, but actually both of them are weird, actually...

    Eli Sammler : Yeah, I know.

    Grace Manning : MOI-STEN

    [they both laugh] 

  • Grace Manning : It's like your parents want you to be grown up in the really boring ways like school, and in the cool ways like being on your own, they try to keep you a kid.
