  • Surprisingly, the Quit Your Whining moment The Courier gives his companions in S8 E2 after they start talking about their families ends in a touching way.
    The Courier: Bottom line is, you are all full grown adults with your own lives. Even if your parents were still around at this point, they would have to accept you the way you are - you don't need to prove jack shit to them! If anything, they're the ones who should be judged. So cheer up, all of you! For all you know, they're watching you in the afterlife right now giving high-fives to each other.
