The next chapter. That's something people say a lot, talking about the stories of their lives. Turn the page. The past is prologue. The next chapter. Like it's already been written. Like, the words are already there waiting for us. But I disagree. We are the authors of our own stories. Sure, we can't always control the plot, but we can decide who we want to be. So to me, the next chapter just means the endless possibilities of the blank page. New beginnings. It doesn't matter who you...- we were in high school. The jock, the nerd, the weirdo, the criminal or the princess... or what plot twist got tossed our way. It's time to turn the page and write the next chapter ourselves.Ilonka in The Midnight Club, Season 1 Episode 1

To us now.

I'm waiting for my friend. She's busy. I think she's trying to make a couple of mistakes.Ilonka in The Midnight Club, Season 1 Episode 1
Brightcliffe isn't about battles. It's about permission to leave the battlefield. To focus on living instead of fighting. We aren't about a fight, and it's certainly isn't losing a battle. Every living day here is a win.Dr. Georgina Stanton in The Midnight Club, Season 1 Episode 1
Tim: "How long?"
Dr. Rowlands: "It's tough to say."
Tim: "It's tough to f-cking hear, too, Doc. Give it a try!"
Ilonka: "This is our chance to get a jump on a real college party."
Lauren: "Or we could start with a high school one since we kind of missed that boat when we were being total nerds."
The thing I didn't understand when we talk about cancer or any terminal illness, really. Look at the language we use, the language of battle. We're gonna fight this thing. We're going to fight with everything we've got. Be brave for the fight. And then people say they lost the battle. It's so backwards. I get it. To talk about the fight, it's active, visceral. Don't look at the hard part. Look at all these shiny, sharp weapons we've developed all for you to try.CancerDr. Georgina Stanton in The Midnight Club, Season 1 Episode 1
If you honestly feel you have done something so terrible that you cannot be forgiven, then I am willing to share your sins with you. When we die, if we should have to stand before God and be judged, then I will tell him I am as much to blame as you and that half your punishment should be portioned out to me.Christopher Pike in The Midnight Club
You should also break a few rules, I think. You know, just like once in your life.The Midnight Club, Season 1 Episode 1
