Maggie: "When I found out that we share a dad, I was so caught up dealing with that I didn’t even process the fact there's this whole other culture I belong to."
Macy: "Well it’s understandable. It’s a lot to take in."
Maggie: "The thing is for 18 years I have always checked the same box in every form and now I’m eligible for all these scholarships for black students. Is it messed up for me to apply? "
Macy: "Our dad is black."
Maggie: "Right. well there's a group interview for the scholarship tomorrow at the BSU I don’t know--should I go?"
Macy: "Do you want to go?"
Maggie: "Do I get to be considered part of a culture I didn’t grow up in?"
Macy: "You know I would struggle with that too. It's a hard question. I’m sorry I can’t answer it for you."

Maggie: "I don’t think I’m going to apply for any of the black student scholarships. it just doesn’t feel right. But I am going to check out the BSU again. Even though I totally embarrassed myself last time I was there. I want to figure out this new part of myself."
Macy: "I’m excited for you."

Niko: "Tell met the truth--you’re hiding something from me."
Mel: "You're right and I’m not going to anymore. I’m a witch."
Niko: "Did you just do a spell? Is this a coven?"
Mel: "I will tell you everything, but right now you have to go."
Niko: "No. no way."

Macy: "Harry taught us it is my actions, not my nature that defines me and I believe that."
Galvin: "Macy I know that you’re not evil but something inside of you is."
Macy: "You really feel that way?"
Galvin: "Macy please. what I saw in you-- I can’t unseen it. Not if it's still there."
Macy: "So what are you saying?"
Galvin: "I'm saying I don’t want anything to do with any of this stuff ever again."
Macy: "But this stuff is who I am."

Maggie: "I know you’re feeling in between the witch and demon of it all right now, but I want you to know the goodness inside of you isn't going anywhere and feeling split between two sides of yourself doesn’t make you any less than."
Macy: "I wish you’d be just as kind to yourself."
