If winter is slumber, and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before. —Mitchell Burgess, Northern Exposure, Thanksgiving, 1992
Joel: Ed, are you hallucinating? Ed: Oh, yeah, but not right now. —Sy Rosen and Christian Williams, Northern Exposure, On Your Own, 1992
Joel: That’s the movies, Ed. Try reality. Ed: No thanks. —Ellen Herman, Northern Exposure, Only You, 1991
I used to think of all the billions of people in the world, and of all those people, how was I going to meet the right ones? The right ones to be my friends, the right one to be my husband. Now I just believe you meet the people you’re supposed to meet. —Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, Northern Exposure, The Quest, 1995
