Buck Oliver: I choose you. I want you to be my parents.
Eugene Meltsner: Oh!
Katrina Meltsner: Do you?
Buck Oliver: Yeah! I've always wanted that. You're the ones I can count on no matter what. When I was in trouble, all I wanted was for you to be there. You're the only people who make me feel safe. And... who make me feel loved.

Cash Oliver: If all goes how I planned, this is your sixteenth birthday, and we've come together to dig this up. As I'm writing this, you're just a little one who's spunky, funny, and smart as any kid I've ever met, but I'm worried. I don't know how to be a dad. I'm not good at stuff. I don't know how to interview for a job or even make a salad. Shortly before you were born, I was sitting in a courtroom hallway. I've just been convicted of another theft and sentenced to more community service. I was a failure. I knew it. And I'd be a failure as a dad. Why even try? But then, down the hall, I heard this kid talking. You know the type, the kind with glasses twice the side of his biceps? He was in foster care. He said all he wanted was a dad who wanted him. He didn't care if his dad had flaws or couldn't give him nice things. He just wanted a family. And that stuck with me. And it made me realize that I just want to be there for you, Buckaroni. I love you. And I'm proud of you. People always said I'd do anything for a buck. They were right. Though now it's, "I'd do anything for you, Buck." Love, dad.

Judge: After hearing from all parties, the court finds that this adoption is indeed in the best interest of the child. So it is my pleasure to decree that Buck Oliver is now Buck Meltsner, son of Eugene and Katrina Meltsner. Case dismissed.

Buck Oliver: Buck Meltsner. I like that.
Eugene Meltsner: And I happen to like the son part even better!
Katrina Meltsner: Me too! Oh Buck, I am so happy you're ours. Forever and always!
Buck Oliver: Yeah. It feels good to finally have a family.
