How Much We Share
Wesley: "When it all comes down to it, life isn't about how much we get - it's about how much we share."
Wesley's absolutely correct: Giving to others can totally change a person's perspective about what's most important in life.

The Same Thing

A Gallon of Milk
Lindsey (to Wesley): "Tell me how much a gallon of milk costs? You don't even know."
When Wesley questions Lindsey's mothering, she explains that times are tough for them. Can Wesley even understand what that means? He claims he can, but Lindsey's quick to call him out, because he honestly has no idea how much milk (or anything else, really) costs these days.

What Makes You Happy
Lindsey (to Wesley): "You spend all this time making other people happy - you need to go and find what makes you really happy, because you have a good heart."
Money doesn't buy happiness, and this old adage is certainly true where Wesley Deeds is concerned. And someone outside of Wesley's wealthy circles, like Lindsey, can clearly see how dreadfully unhappy Wesley is right now...

My Life is Perfect
Wesley: "My name is Wesley Deeds III. I grew up fifth generation Ivy League graduate, groomed by my father to be a businessman - to take over his company. Groomed by my mother to be a gentleman. I was told where to stand, how to dress, and what I would be doing for the rest of my life. My life is perfect."
Wesley lives a live of privilege, having grown up in the lap of luxury. He has everything anyone could ever want - or does he?

Walter Deeds (to Wesley): "This business, it wasn't even your dream."
Walter (Brian White) is Wesley Deeds' younger brother. He's a bit of a rogue, refusing to live by their father's strict codes. Wesley's the straight-laced, 'good' brother - always doing the right thing, even if it means he's giving up on his own dreams.

Wesley: "You can just live here as long as you need to..."
Lindsey: "I can't..."
Wesley: "I know that you're proud. I know that you're used to doing everything on your own. Sometimes even the best of us, we all need a little help."
When Wesley shows Lindsey the corporate apartment, hoping she and her daughter will live there, she initially doesn't understand, thinking he wants her to clean it, not live in it.
