  • Aunty Entity acknowledging Max as a kindred spirit and ending her enmity with him.
    Ain't we a pair, raggedy man.
  • Master finally finding a home with The Ones Who Left. There's something charming about him dressing in his old weathered formal suit and packing the remains of his belongings.
  • Savannah Nix's closing speech at the end of the film:
    Savannah: This you knows. The years travel fast. And time after time I've done the Tell. But this ain 't one body's Tell. It's the Tell of us all, and you got to listen it and 'member, 'cause what you hears today, you got to tell the newborn tomorrow. I's looking behind us now, into history back. I sees those of us that got the luck and started the haul for home. It lead us here and we was heartful 'cause we seen what there once was. One look, and we knewed we'd got it straight. Those what had gone before had knowing of things beyond our reckoning even beyond our dreaming. Time counts and keeps countin', and we knows now finding the trick of what's been and lost ain't no easy ride. But that's our trek, we gotta' travel it. And there ain't nobody knows where it's gonna' lead. Still in all, every night we does the Tell, so that we 'member who we was and where we came from... but most of all we 'members the man that finded us, him that came the salvage. And we lights the city, not just for him, but for all of them that are still out there. 'Cause we knows there come a night, when they sees the distant light, and they'll be comin' home.

  • Immediately following this is a Dedication that reads, "...for Byron".
