My favorite scene from the whole 4-book trilogy when Dr. Cable rescues Tally at the end of Specials and she says, "Keep yourself Special. The world may need you some day." I'm not sure why I like it so much, it just felt like it ended the Cable vs. Youngblood thing in a simple and strong way.

I like the ones on the front covers..............but I can't remember them. I have plenty more tho!
"Sometimes it felt like her life was a series of falls from ever greater heights." Pretties
"Because the city makes you the way they want you to be, Peris. And I want to be myself. Thats why." Tally, Pretties (when theyre leaving the city in the ballon)
"But people are better now than they used to be. Maybe they have good reasons for changing us, Tally." "Their reasons don't meant anything unless I have a choice, Peris. And they don't give anyone a choice." Tally and Peris, Pretties
"Everyone in the world was programmed by the place they were born, hemmed in my their beliefs, but you had to at least try to grow your own brain. Otherwise, you might as well be living on a reservation, worshipping a bunch of bogus gods." Pretties
This part of the ping totally caught my attention: "You all say you need us. Well, maybe you do, but not to help you. You have enough help, with the millions of bubbly new minds about to be unleashed, with all the cities coming awake at last. Together, you're more than enough to change the world without us. So from now on, David and I are here to stand in your way. You see, freedom has a way of destroying things." Tally, Specials(also starts off Extras)
"Sometimes you have to lie to find the truth." Frizz, Extras
"You can disappear in front of a crowd too." Eden, Extras
"Sometimes it's a messy business, saving the world."
"Life doesn't come with an instruction manual. So don't tell me that humanity being brain-missing is my fault." Tally, Extras

"That's not me. It's some committes's idea of me." Shay, Uglies
"If only people were smarter, evolved enough to treat everyone the same even if they looked different. Looked ugly. " Uglies
"Maybe they didn't want you to realize that every civilization has its weakness. There's always one thing we depend on. And if someone takes it away, all that's left is some story in a  history class." David, Uglies
"Which was worse, a friend with brain damage, or one who despised you?" Uglies
"Your personality-the real you inside-was the price of beauty." Uglies
yeah, i think thats all. for now lol

"Because the city makes you the way they want you to be, Peris. And I want to be myself. Thats why."
If only people were smarter, evolved enough to treat everyone the same even if they looked different. Looked ugly.
just a lil bit of me =

I like the one from Extras--"My name is Tally Youngblood. Sorry to disturb you, but this is a Special Circumstance." It's on my signature.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Attitudes are contagious. Mine can kill you

Not sure what it implies but that's definitely a good quote.

When Tally and Shay are doing Morphos, they have to choose one side to duplicate.
