Willy: I've got to get some seeds. I've got to get some seeds, right away. Nothing's planted. I don't have a thing in the ground. (Austin)

Happy: I'm gonna show you and everybody else that Willy Loman did not die in vain. He had a good dream. It's the only dream you can have - to come out number-one man. He fought it out here, and this is where I'm gonna win it for him. (Brooke)

Biff: I realized what a ridiculous lie my whole life has been. (Brooke)

BIFF: I run out of that building and I see... the sky. I see all the things I love in this world. The work, the food, the time to sit and smoke. And I look at this pen and I ask myself, "What the hell am I grabbing this thing for? Why am I trying to become something I don't wanna become when all I want is out there waiting for me the minute I say I know who I am?" (BILLY)

WILLY: I am not a dime a dozen! I'm Willy Loman and you are Biff Loman! (BILLY)

HAPPY: I'm gettin' married, Pop
LINDA: Go to sleep dear.(BILLY)

WILLY: You can't eat the orange and throw the peel away - a man is not a piece of fruit! (BILLY)

LINDA: I don't say he's a great man. Willie Loman never made a lot of money. His name was never in the paper. He's not the finest character that ever lived. But he's a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid. He's not to be allowed to fall in his grave like an old dog. Attention, attention must finally be paid to such a person (BILLY)

WILLY: I'm going to go plant carrotts. (William)
