Jake: Witches used to separate paper, write messages on the inside, and then put it back together.

Faye: Remember, you're suppose to keep an eye on Jake, not Diana. You want a drink or something? As long as we're here.
Adam: Sure. How ‘bout something with an olive?

Jake: Can you handle a knife?
Adam: Yes I can handle a knife.

Isaac: Cassie Blake is not the only child of Blackwell in the Circle.

Faye: Jake doesn’t do interested. Him not caring is what makes him him!

Faye: It’s Cassie, that’s who he cares about.

Jake: This isn’t me acting like a jerk, Cassie. This is me trying to be nice.

Cassie: Actually, no. We don’t call it the Scooby-Do magic shack.

Jake: She matters to me!
