Riley: [to Farkle] It has to matter that who we were affects who we are. You chose Smackle because you want to raise your level. That's who you are.
Cory: Good isn't good enough anymore.
Farkle: I used to think of you as my intellectual superior.
Smackle: I did too, but now I see us as equals.
Maya, Riley, Zay and Lucas: Aww!
Farkle: Good, then you're not as smart as I thought.
Lucas: Aww!...I hate it when that happens.
Riley: [about Maya and Zay] Well, I'm happy for you guys.

Cory: Good teachers look down the road to someone's possibilities. What you know now is never good enough for a good teacher. Because there's so much out there to learn.

There are good teachers here, and I'm looking forward to being one of them.
