Script that doesn't print duplicate lines

what could i add to this script that would not add the duplicated lines that are in the .txt file.

class RestartMonitor
    counter = 1
            file = File.new("syslog.txt", "r")
        while (line = file.gets)
            if line['reserved']
                date = line[/\w+ +\d+ +\d+:\d+:\d+/]
                puts "#{counter}: #{date}"
                
            end        
        end
    end

Working script:

class RestartMonitor
  found = []
  file = File.new("syslog.txt", "r")
  while (line = file.gets)
    if line['restarting']
      date = line[/\w+ +\d+ +\d+:\d+:\d+/]
      if !found.include? date
        found << date 
        puts "#{date}"
      end
    end        
  end
end
