Quotes:
From "Murdoch Mysteries: Power (#1.1)" (2008)
[last lines]
[Murdoch flips a switch on the wireless]
Nikola Tesla: Detective Murdoch, you are the first to receive a wireless transmission from New York.
Detective William Murdoch: I came to thank you in person-
Nikola Tesla: Do not attempt to transmit in return. The power of this unit is far too weak. While I do think this is a splendid invention, I have other ideas of much greater importance that must be explored. We are men of the future, Detective Murdoch, and what a future it shall be.
Detective William Murdoch: Yes. What a future it shall be.
