"Heroes: Chapter Sixteen 'Unexpected' (#1.16)" (2007/II)
[last lines]
Peter Petrelli: [looking at painting of Simone and Isaac together] This is why you sent them after me, jealousy? With me out of the way you'd have Simone all to yourself.
Isaac Mendez: [shouts] You stole her away from me!
[pause]
Isaac Mendez: But I did it to save New York, to stop the bomb.
[he grabs a gun and aims his gun at Peter]
Isaac Mendez: I can do it right now.
[points the gun at Peter]
Isaac Mendez: With just one bullet and I can be a hero.
Peter Petrelli: [turning invisible] You're not a hero, Isaac. You're a junkie. You couldn't even save yourself! That's why she left you Isaac. IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ME!
Isaac Mendez: Show yourself! Simone!

Claude Rains: Charles Darwin bred pigeons when he was working out his theory of evolution-married up various permutations to get maximum potential.
Peter Petrelli: What do you mean by that, 'maximum potential'?
Claude Rains: I think he meant you, friend.

Claude: [as Peter throws him over his shoulder] What are you doing?
Peter Petrelli: Something unexpected.
[Peter jumps off the Deveaux building's roof and flies away]

Peter Petrelli: Hey, I can't do this on my own.
Claude: Then I guess you go boom.

Peter Petrelli: [to Isaac Mendez] What'd they give you, money? Drugs? What's a Judas get these days?

Claude: [attacking Peter] You've got the power to stop me, what are you waitin' for?
Peter Petrelli: I'm trying!
Claude: And when you've left New York a smoking wasteland, we'll put that on your tombstone: "Here lies Peter Petrelli. He tried."

Claude Rains: Dig into that file cabinet of yours and pull something out. Fly, stop time, paint me a pretty picture. Do something...unexpected.
[Peter freezes Claude's staff in the air and breaks it in two. Claude laughs]
Claude Rains: You pushed that away with your mind. Which one of your sorry friends has telekinesis?
Peter Petrelli: None of them do. Oh, wait. That guy who was chasing Claire in Texas. He sent some lockers flying at me.
Claude Rains: Texas? And you pulled that little trick out in the here and now? Well, we might just have a chance of stopping you from going nuclear.

Peter Petrelli: [to Claude] You used to care about all this, didn't you?
Claude Rains: Alright. Sharing time's over.

Peter Petrelli: Enough!
Claude Rains: I say when it's enough.

Peter Petrelli: What are these marks, huh? What do they mean?
Isaac Mendez: They're nothing. They mean nothing.
Peter Petrelli: [to Isaac] Don't lie to me!


"Heroes: Chapter Twenty-One 'The Hard Part' (#1.21)" (2007/II)
Claire Bennet: You're scared.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, I am. I'm terrified. I have to find a nuclear man and I don't know if I can contain all that power.
Claire Bennet: Then run the other way.
Peter Petrelli: I can't.
Claire Bennet: Why not?
Peter Petrelli: Because if we save ourselves, who's going to save everyone else?

Peter Petrelli: You can't leave.
Claire Bennet: I have to. It's until the election's over.
Peter Petrelli: Look, I found you in Odessa, we saved each other, you end up being my niece. This isn't just random, okay? This is destiny.
Claire Bennet: My father sacrificed himself so I could have a life, not a destiny. You can't save me, Peter, not this time.
Peter Petrelli: And Nathan can?
Claire Bennet: Nathan can keep me safe.
Peter Petrelli: Safe? You can't get hurt! You're here to save the world.
Claire Bennet: How? I'm sorry. I can't go around chasing some fantasy.

Nathan Petrelli: So you're telling me this Ted Sprague guy blew up your house?
[Claire looks at Peter behind Nathan, who nods]
Claire Bennet: Yeah. Pretty much.
Peter Petrelli: Don't you see this, Nathan? Maybe I'm not the bomb. Maybe this guy Ted Sprague is. Maybe we can stop him?
Nathan Petrelli: You said you had a dream that you blew up New York City.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, I also dreamed I could fly. We know how that turned out for you.
Claire Bennet: You can fly?
[quietly]
Claire Bennet: That's cool.

Peter Petrelli: This bomb is happening.
Claire Bennet: How can you be so sure?
Peter Petrelli: 'Cause I can draw the future.

Peter Petrelli: [to Claire] Kirby Plaza, Midtown. Ted is here. Don't you see, Claire. You're part of this. You have to do this.

Peter Petrelli: There's no sign of him. What's wrong?
Claire Bennet: I'm not normal. I tried to pretend that I was and I just hurt everyone; my Mom, my Dad. I ruined everything because of what I am. I hated it. But you... - When I met you I finally felt like I was part of something.
Peter Petrelli: It's funny. I felt the same thing when I met you.
Claire Bennet: [seeing Noah] Dad! Dad!
Noah Bennet: Claire.
Claire Bennet: Dad.
Noah Bennet: I love you, Claire Bear.

[last lines]
Peter Petrelli: Claire!
Ted Sprague: What's he doing?
Noah Bennet: He's absorbing your ability.
Matt Parkman: He's gotta make it stop!

Peter Petrelli: [to Claire] I can handle Ted. But if I lost it, you're the only who can get close enough to stop me.

Peter Petrelli: It's not some fantasy. I explode. I see it. I wipe out this whole city. You, Nathan, everyone.
Claire Bennet: You explode?
Peter Petrelli: Yeah. Like a nuclear bomb.
Claire Bennet: Nuclear? Like Ted.
Peter Petrelli: Ted? Who the Hell is Ted?


"Heroes: Chapter Thirteen 'The Fix' (#1.13)" (2007/II)
Peter Petrelli: I found you for a reason. I think you're the one that has to teach me how to stop this.
Claude: There's no such thing. No teaching. No Sunday school for the special. What I can do, you can't learn - you wake up in the morning, it's there. If you've got thin soup, then that's your supper. Sorry, Mate. That's the way it is.
Peter Petrelli: I'm trying not to die. There's got to be something you can do.
Claude: I can kill you myself right now. Solve your exploding problem here. Maybe that's why you dreamt me. Don't bother looking for me. You won't find me here again.

Claude: A nurse who's an empath, very cute.
Peter Petrelli: Empath? What's that mean?
Claude: It means you're a pain in my ass, Mate.

Peter Petrelli: You?
Claude: You can see me.
Peter Petrelli: You...
[Claude grabs Peter by the neck]
Claude: Nobody can see me! I'm invisible! Who are you? How can you see me?
Peter Petrelli: [choked] I don't know. I just do what you can do.
[Claude lets him down]
Claude: Fantastic! One of those.
Peter Petrelli: One of those. What do you mean? You know someone else like me? Hey, wait. Where are you going? You need to explain this! I saw you. I saw you in my dream. Who are you?

Claude: Forget you ever saw me!
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, but, you know! What's happening to me? What is this? I found you. I need you to help me.
Claude: Why would I wanna do that?
Peter Petrelli: Because, we're in danger. This entire city is in danger. It was in my dream. People die. We die. I don't know when, but it happens.
Claude: Then you better leave town.
Peter Petrelli: Hey, where are you going? You can't hide from me!
Claude: I'm the invisible man; I can walk 'round the corner and disappear forever.
Claude: Yeah, but I can see you. I'm gonna follow you.
Peter Petrelli: Smarter men than you have tried and have paid for it. You stay away from me. And don't follow me!

Claude: I told you not to follow me.
Peter Petrelli: I need help. You live up here?
Claude: You're not a fast learner, eh, mate?
Peter Petrelli: I took care of a man who owned this building. His name was Charles Deveaux.
Claude: Never heard of him.
Peter Petrelli: You don't think that's strange? I worked here. The place where you live and keep your birds.
Claude: I don't keep anything. I let 'em out once a day, they come back. Sounds like free will to me.
Peter Petrelli: I need to learn how to control this. Like you do.
Claude: What are you talking about? It can't be controlled.
Peter Petrelli: There has to be some way. If, if I don't, New York explodes. Okay? I explode.
Claude: An exploding man, where'd you get that idea?
Peter Petrelli: My dreams. This place.

Nathan Petrelli: There's got to be another way, Peter. Let me help you.
Peter Petrelli: You can't.

Peter Petrelli: I know you want to help me. You're my big brother and you fix everything but you can't. You can't fix this one this time.
Nathan Petrelli: I can. Look, let's just sit down. We can figure this out.
Peter Petrelli: Okay.
Nathan Petrelli: Okay?
Peter Petrelli: Okay.
[Peter runs away]
Nathan Petrelli: Peter!
[to the Bodyguard]
Nathan Petrelli: Where did he go?
Bodyguard: Who?
Nathan Petrelli: You're supposed to watch the door.
Mohinder Suresh: [pointing to an open window] My God, did he just?

Claude: This your place?
Peter Petrelli: Yeah.
Claude: A guy with family connections like yours could do a lot better.
Peter Petrelli: I left the family business. I'm a nurse now.

Peter Petrelli: You're following me.
Claude: Yeah, well I'm not very much of a people person, but I'm certainly not gonna let you kill them all. You seem pretty sure about that pending apocalypse of yours.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah? Not unless you help me control it.
Claude: You don't know what you're asking. What you'll have to go through. You might want to reconsider dying. A hell of a lot easier.
Peter Petrelli: I can handle it.
Claude: Yeah, that's what they all say.
Peter Petrelli: They? How many people have you taught, before me?
Claude: Come on, mate; I'll steal us a cab. Are you coming or not?


"Heroes: Chapter Fourteen 'Distractions' (#1.14)" (2007/II)
Claude: I spend a lot a time moving around people's homes, their bedrooms. You get to know people if you see them when they think they're alone you see them for what they truly are: Selfish, Deceitful... and Gassy.
Peter Petrelli: So what, is that your big truth about the world?
Claude: The sooner you learn it, the sooner we get that collar off your neck.

Claude: People suck friend. Every last one of them, never forget that.
Peter Petrelli: Not all of them.
Claude: Oh right, there's a girl.
Peter Petrelli: She's not like the rest of them.
Claude: Everyone's like the rest, that's why they're the rest.
[pause]
Claude: Fine, let's go and see what your girl's up to, then maybe we can clear your head.

Peter Petrelli: You threw me off of a thirty-story building! If I didn't regenerate, I would be dead!
Claude: Well, you could have flown. Listen, if you hadn't had worked this one out you would have been hopeless anyway and I just diffused the biggest bomb ever.

[first lines]
Peter Petrelli: I don't see how petty theft is part of my training.
Claude: There's a lot you don't see. You've no idea how to use these gifts of yours properly.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, and you know.
Claude: Right now your ability only shows up as a reflex, automatic, like swallowing. That's a dog's trick. Making it a conscious choice, using it. That's what makes you more than poodle.
Peter Petrelli: Is insulting me really going to help me learn to do this?
Claude: Listen you're the one who is a bomb threatening to go off and blow up me and everyone else in this city unless I can get you housebroken.

Peter Petrelli: Thanks for nearly getting me arrested.
Claude: A little more patience and you could have had some cash and some fresh lipstick!

Claude: Peter can't use his powers without someone holding his hands.
[about Nathan Petrelli]
Claude: How can you not punch that face everytime you see it?
Peter Petrelli: He's not like that.
Claude: He is, trust me.
Peter Petrelli: You don't know him.
Claude: I don't need to. I've spent a lotta time movin' around people's homes, their bedrooms.

Claude: You have to get rid of your distractions.
Peter Petrelli: The people that I love are not distractions.
Claude: Then why can't you fly? You've done it. You're body remembers how. The only thing standing in your way is you.
Peter Petrelli: What am I supposed to do? Cut them out of my life? How cold do you expect me to be?
Claude: Did you forget you're a bomb? You've got to remember what this is about. Or do you have to ask your brother's permission for that as well?
Peter Petrelli: Anything else that I have to do? Do you want to make a list?
Claude: You're a sad cartoon of a broken heart bleeding all over the place. I'm just trying to get your head straight.

Peter Petrelli: And I am tired of you telling me what I have to do. I don't have to do anything!
Claude: Except fly.
[pushes Peter off of rooftop]
Peter Petrelli: Son of a bitch.

Peter Petrelli: Before I hit the ground, when I knew what was about to happen I had this flash, in my head of this girl that I met in Texas. This cheerleader, she could heal herself. God, she's this sweet kid. Sad little smile and she just... You were wrong! I don't have to cut her out! I have to remember her, how she made me feel. That's how I...
[Peter starts cycling through abilities]
Peter Petrelli: Oh, God! It's happening. I'm losing it!
[Claude punches him, knocking him out]
Claude: Well, it's a start.


"Heroes: Chapter Five 'Hiros' (#1.5)" (2006/II)
Hiro Nakamura: Peter Petrelli?
Peter Petrelli: What? Are you doing this?
Hiro Nakamura: You look different without the scar.
Peter Petrelli: I don't know you.
Hiro Nakamura: Not yet. My name is Hiro Nakamura. I'm from the future, and I have a message for you. I don't have much time. I'm risking a rift just by coming here. The girl. You have to save her.
Peter Petrelli: What girl?
Hiro Nakamura: The cheerleader. It's the only way to prevent it.
Peter Petrelli: Prevent what?
Hiro Nakamura: Everything. Listen to me. She must live. The painter, Isaac, go to him. He will know. When I call you, you must tell me where we meet. You've told me many times how lost you felt before it all started. *This* is what you've been waiting for. Be the one we need.
[walks away]
Peter Petrelli: Wait!

Peter Petrelli: Isaac, I need your help.
Isaac Mendez: You need help? Ask Simone.

Peter Petrelli: It's her. The cheerleader.

Peter Petrelli: I saw it.
Isaac Mendez: What?
Peter Petrelli: I saw something in the uh, in the canvas, the picture. This painting. I can finish it.
Isaac Mendez: You can paint?
Peter Petrelli: No, no I can't. But I drew the future after I saw you the other day. It was only stick figures, but... it came true.

[last lines]
Peter Petrelli: [answers phone] Hello?
Hiro Nakamura: Mr. Isaac? Isaac Mendez?
Peter Petrelli: Who is this?
Hiro Nakamura: Uh...
[Hiro and Ando both put ears to phone]
Hiro Nakamura: My name is Hiro Nakamura.
Peter Petrelli: My name is Peter Petrelli. I have a message for you.

Peter Petrelli: Something's gonna happen to this girl. We need to know what. You have to finish this. You-you have to finish the painting.

Peter Petrelli: Wait, Hiro. I don't understand. Hiro? Where are you? I don't understand.

Peter Petrelli: [about Hiro] He says that we all meet up somehow. Sometime in the future, I guess.
Mohinder Suresh: I see.
Peter Petrelli: It seems crazy, but I know what I saw. He said something bad is gonna happen, but we can stop it. But first we have to... save the cheerleader.


"Heroes: Chapter Four 'Collision' (#1.4)" (2006/II)
Nathan Petrelli: [to Peter] Don't insult me. I've got trained professionals that do that.
Simone Deveraux: [seen wearing only Peter's shirt] Hey! Where's your mugs?
Peter Petrelli: Hey. It's... uh... They're in the cabinet, with the water stain that looks like Abraham Lincoln.

Mohinder Suresh: Look at what's happening to our planet: over-population, global warming, drought, famine, terrorism - deep down we all sense something's not right. My father always talked about how an entire species will go extinct, while others no more unique or complex will change and adapt in extraordinary ways- He had a romantic take on evolution.
Peter Petrelli: And you don't? You're both geneticists.
Mohinder Suresh: That is also evolution. We're all just variations of the last model.
Peter Petrelli: Ch'yeah. We're just cheap knock-offs of our fathers.

Peter Petrelli: What if he can? Paint the future, I mean? Stranger things, right?
Simone Deveraux: No, that's about as strange as it gets.

Simone Deveraux: Peter, I... uh, I don't know what this is. I mean, us. You know, I just got out of a two year relationship that was very destructive. And here I am sleeping with the guy who was taking care of my dying father and it's a little confusing.
Peter Petrelli: I don't wanna be the rebound guy.
Simone Deveraux: I just need time to catch my breath before you take it away again. Okay?

Peter Petrelli: You Chandra Suresh?
Mohinder Suresh: No. That was my father.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, um... Your father wrote a book about people with... abilities. I-I think I may be one of them.

Peter Petrelli: I've only met him the once, but maybe I ought to do the talking to start. He's, uh, he's kind of a heroin addict.
Mohinder Suresh: Heroin addict? You neglected to mention that.
Peter Petrelli: Hey, just suspend the skepticism, at least until you meet him.
Mohinder Suresh: The default scientific position is skepticism.
Peter Petrelli: Well, your father managed to get around it. I don't know, he took a pretty big leap. Gotta respect that.
Mohinder Suresh: I did more than respect it. I believed him. I had to. I was his son.
Peter Petrelli: Can't be the only reason why you believed him.

Hiro Nakamura: [as Future Hiro] Peter Petrelli.
Peter Petrelli: How is this happening?
Hiro Nakamura: [as Future Hiro] I'm sorry if I scared you. You look different without your scar.
Peter Petrelli: I don't know you, buddy.
Hiro Nakamura: [as Future Hiro] Not yet.

Mohinder Suresh: So when you're with your brother you can fly, and when you're with the artist...
Peter Petrelli: Isaac. Yeah. Umm, I only met him once, but after, I-I drew the future.
Mohinder Suresh: And now you can't do either.
Peter Petrelli: Maybe I can only do things when I'm around other people who can... do things.
[pause]
Peter Petrelli: 'Kay, that sound as lame as I think it did?
Mohinder Suresh: It sounds like you should be talking to my father. This was his research, not mine.
Peter Petrelli: Well, where is he? How do I get a hold of him?
Mohinder Suresh: He's on the table.
Peter Petrelli: [sees urn] I-I'm sorry. But you believe that this is possible, you have to. I mean, you believed it this morning. What if I prove it to you?
Mohinder Suresh: Then prove it.


"Heroes: Chapter Twenty 'Five Years Gone' (#1.20)" (2007/II)
Ando Masahashi: Is everything okay?
Future Peter Petrelli: No... Let's go fix it.

Peter Petrelli: [about Hiro] Do you remember how he used to be - all full of hope and optimism?
Ando Masahashi: Of course. That's the Hiro I know.
Peter Petrelli: He went away the day you died. Between you and me, I think you're the reason why he became so obsessed with trying to change it all back. He wants to save you.

Niki Sanders: What makes you think that you are *so* important - that you have to *fix* everything?
Peter Petrelli: Because I do.
Niki Sanders: Why! Why does it fall on your shoulders to save *everyone*?
Peter Petrelli: Because it was *me*. The bomb? It was me! I killed all those people! I killed Micah!

Future Hiro Nakamura: Should we freeze time?
Peter Petrelli: Nah, I haven't had a good fight in years.

Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] Brother versus brother... it's almost biblical.
Peter Petrelli: My brother can't walk through walls! Who are you?
[Nathan turns into Sylar, who it was all along]
Sylar: An old friend... the guy they blamed for blowing up New York. But you and I know the real history, don't we Pete?

Niki Sanders: [after Future Hiro and Ando leave] You don't have to be here. I told you, I can handle it.
Peter Petrelli: What did he want?
Niki Sanders: What do you think? He's still trying to stop an exploding man.
Peter Petrelli: Sylar's dead.
Niki Sanders: I set him off to Bennet, just let him deal.

Peter Petrelli: [to Niki] You'll look at that mirror, but nobody is looking back but you. She's gone Niki, D.L. is gone. Micah is gone. You have to accept your loss.
Niki Sanders: Jessica was right all along. Look out for yourself. Don't get attached.
Peter Petrelli: I don't buy it.

Peter Petrelli: You will pay for what you did to Nathan. What you did in his name!
Sylar: What I did? When I killed Nathan, he had already turned against his own kind.
Peter Petrelli: Liar!


"Heroes: Chapter One 'Genesis' (#1.1)" (2006/II)
Peter Petrelli: I've been up here all night. Thinking about this. Thinking about my destiny.
Nathan Petrelli: What you doing, Pete?
Peter Petrelli: It's my turn to be somebody now, Nathan!

Peter Petrelli: It happened two more times. Look, sometimes I'm falling, sometimes I'm flying - sometimes you're in them!
Nathan Petrelli: I don't have time for this now.
Peter Petrelli: They're not just dreams, Nathan.
Nathan Petrelli: Hold this.
Peter Petrelli: I thought they'd go away, but they're not!
Nathan Petrelli: Jim, I need this back by six, please. Thanks.
Peter Petrelli: This morning, when I got out of bed, my foot hovered before it hit the ground - hovered!
Nathan Petrelli: [to assistant] Let me see the list.
Peter Petrelli: For a split second, like I was - like I was floating! I'm telling you, I-I think I can fly!
Nathan Petrelli: [hands clipboard to assistant] These all undecideds?
[to Peter]
Nathan Petrelli: Tell you what, you think you can fly? Why don't you jump off the Brooklyn Bridge, see what happens.
Peter Petrelli: Maybe, I ought to start with something a little lower, first, just like learning to walk.
Nathan Petrelli: You're serious?
Peter Petrelli: Oh, I'm serious.
Nathan Petrelli: You need to snap out of it, Peter. See a doctor, get some drugs, but do not pull a Roger Clinton on me, man. I'm eight points down in the polls!

Peter Petrelli: Wow.
Mohinder Suresh: Solar eclipse.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah. Yeah, I wonder if it's gonna be total.
Mohinder Suresh: Not here, no. In some other part of the world, yes. A global event. Makes one appreciate just how small our planet really is. And we're all quite small really, aren't we?
Peter Petrelli: What's your name?
Mohinder Suresh: Mohinder.
Peter Petrelli: I'm Peter. Let me ask you something, Mohinder. Do you ever... get the feeling like you were meant to do something extraordinary?
Mohinder Suresh: I'm driving a cab you may have noticed
Peter Petrelli: No, I'm not talking about what you do. I'm talking about who you are. I'm talking about... being special.
Mohinder Suresh: Yes, we are all special.
Peter Petrelli: That's not what I meant.
Mohinder Suresh: Some individuals, it is true, are more special. This is natural selection. It begins as a single individual born or hatched like every other member of their species. Anonymous. Seemingly ordinary. Except they're not. They carry inside them the genetic code that will take their species to the next evolutionary rung. It's destiny.

Peter Petrelli: You didn't hear anything that I said earlier today, did you?
Nathan Petrelli: About that bit how you can fly. Yeah I did. I'm gonna pretend for both our sakes you didn't say anything like that.

Angela Petrelli: You, in the meantime, for all your selflessness, and sitting with dying people... What? You gonna retire on what you make?
Peter Petrelli: Maybe I'll shoplift my socks.

Simone Deveraux: You know, I don't know what he'd do without you - you've got a real gift.
Peter Petrelli: I just do my job.
Simone Deveraux: No, you're like a son to him.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, but that would make us like brother and sister. Might be - might be a little awkward if I ever wanted to ask you out.
[chuckling]
Peter Petrelli: I'm sorry. That was, uh, that was inappropriate.
Simone Deveraux: No, it-it's sweet. It's... I'm dating somebody.

[last lines]
Nathan Petrelli: [has just flown up and caught his brother in mid-air] Peter!
Peter Petrelli: [shocked] You're flying Nathan! You're flying! How did you...
Nathan Petrelli: I don't know.
[Peter slips from his grasp and falls]
Nathan Petrelli: No! No!


"Heroes: Chapter Eleven 'Fallout' (#1.11)" (2006/II)
Nathan Petrelli: You're meant to do a lot of things, Peter.
[sits down next to Peter]
Nathan Petrelli: But saving the world isn't one of them. You gotta learn to recognize when life is bigger than you are. You're not a fighter. But that's okay, the world needs nurses, too.
Peter Petrelli: When I'm around you, I can do what you can do. Isaac, Hiro Nakamura, this girl Claire - I-I-I think that we're all the same, somehow, and this bomb that Isaac painted, I think that we're supposed to stop it, but I just... I don't think I can do it.
[Peter looks away from Nathan]
Nathan Petrelli: That's because you can't.
Sylar: [Peter turns around to see Sylar appearing and sitting where Nathan was a moment before] How can you stop what's coming, when you don't know anything about power?
[Peter wakes up from his dream]

Claire Bennet: What do I have to do with the world?
Peter Petrelli: I don't know... Yet. But I do know that I don't think I would be here if it wasn't for you... I think I died.
Claire Bennet: I've died before. It's no big deal.
[laughs]
Peter Petrelli: I'm not like you, Claire. I...
[Mr. Bennet knocks on the glass. Claire holds up her forefinger. Mr. Bennet turns away]
Peter Petrelli: This uh... This healing thing is kind of new for me.

Claire Bennet: [to Peter in his jail cell] Wait, you didn't know that you were going to heal when you dove off the building?
Peter Petrelli: No.
[chuckles, laughs and then coughs]
Peter Petrelli: That's kind of stupid, huh?
[Mr. Bennet knocks again, Claire nods at him and walks to the cell door]
Claire Bennet: No, it's not. You're totally my hero.

Peter Petrelli: [Nathan walks into Peter's cell] What are you doing here, Nathan?
Nathan Petrelli: [he tosses Peter's possessions bag at him] Let's go.
Peter Petrelli: You aren't going to ask what happened?
Nathan Petrelli: I *know* what happened. You got yourself in trouble, you nearly got yourself killed.
Peter Petrelli: I saved a girl.
Nathan Petrelli: Had to be a hero, didn't you? Get it out of your system now?
Peter Petrelli: I'm finally getting it, Nathan. I've had these dreams and when I was near them, I could do what they could do.
Nathan Petrelli: You look like hell.
Peter Petrelli: I was with that girl, and that guy that was trying to kill that girl, and this, this cop... I, I think he was reading my mind. They were all like us.
Nathan Petrelli: Dysfunctional?
Peter Petrelli: No... they... Nathan, I have to stop that bomb, I have to save everybody.
Nathan Petrelli: Right now I'd settle for you walking straight.

Peter Petrelli: [Nathan walks into Peter's cell] Nathan. What are you... - What are you doing here?
Nathan Petrelli: You get in trouble, I drop everything and fix it. Isn't that how things work? Get you out of here soon.
[Nathan and Peter hug]
Peter Petrelli: What, no lecture?
Nathan Petrelli: I'm just glad you're alive, man.
Peter Petrelli: Why did you destroy that painting? Why did you try and keep me from coming here?
Nathan Petrelli: That painting showed you dead, Peter. And when I got the phone call, I nearly believed it for a minute.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, I'd thought I'd be a hero.
Nathan Petrelli: Yeah, heh. How'd that work out for you?
Peter Petrelli: Save the cheerleader, save the world.

Peter Petrelli: You're okay.
Claire Bennet: Thanks to you.
Mr. Bennet: Mr. Petrelli, I'm Claire's father.
Peter Petrelli: Hi.
Mr. Bennet: You saved my little girl. I owe you my life.
Peter Petrelli: I was just in the right place.
Mr. Bennet: Maybe one day I'll be in the right place and can return the favor.
[Peter coughs]
Mr. Bennet: Are you feeling all right?
Peter Petrelli: Yeah. Fine.
Claire Bennet: Hey, Dad, can you wait outside?
Mr. Bennet: Of course.
[Mr. Bennet leaves the cell]
Claire Bennet: How long have you known?
Peter Petrelli: Known what?
Claire Bennet: That you're like me. You would have died if you couldn't...
Peter Petrelli: Wait, do you... Do you heal? Is that it?
[Claire nods]
Claire Bennet: All this time, I thought it was just me. Now there's you. Is that why you came for me? Is that why you... asked me if I was the one?
Peter Petrelli: No, I just... - I-I knew I had to save you.
Claire Bennet: Why?
Peter Petrelli: To save the world.

Nathan Petrelli: [last week] Easy, it's alright.
Peter Petrelli: It's all my fault... the explosion
Nathan Petrelli: What you talking about?
Peter Petrelli: It's me.
Nathan Petrelli: Breathe. Breathe.
[slaps him]
Nathan Petrelli: Peter! Peter! PETER!


"Heroes: Chapter Seven 'Nothing to Hide' (#1.7)" (2006/II)
Charles Deveaux: Look at your sorry ass - barely able to make minimum wage. Now you look at me: living in a penthouse on Central Park West.
Peter Petrelli: Correction: that's *dying* in a penthouse on Central Park West.
Charles Deveaux: [laughing] Right you are, my boy. Right you are.
Peter Petrelli: Teach you to mess with me. Take a breath.
Charles Deveaux: In the end, all that matters is love. I love you, Peter.

Peter Petrelli: Of course I'm gonna vote for Nathan. Yep. If Nathan takes care of the people *half* as much as he takes care of his brother? It's gonna be an interesting city.
Oliver Dennison: Pretty special family.
Peter Petrelli: [laughs] You have no idea.

Nathan Petrelli: I'm sorry. But, you're gonna have to go, okay?
Peter Petrelli: Hey, you know what? I'm just gonna go fly off the terrace. Yeah. No? Hey, I can fly. Nathan, so can you. Tell you what. Why don't we just race around the Statue of Liberty real quick. Huh? Get this tweedy guy something to write about.
Nathan Petrelli: You wouldn't.
Peter Petrelli: Huh?

Peter Petrelli: [Peter is late] Sorry. Nathan gave me an earful about showing up in cords. I told him I'm trying to stay grounded.

Peter Petrelli: This painting is the key. Alright? With this thing we c- we can make a difference.
Nathan Petrelli: I'm trying to make a difference Peter. The best way I know how. Flying around, how is that gonna help anybody? What is it gonna- I can't- what am I gonna- What am I gonna do when I get there? I don't have a gun, I don't have a badge, I don't - I don't know karate. I guess I could put on a costume and-and fly around and pull cats out of trees. How's that gonna make a difference?
Peter Petrelli: You're not gonna know until you try.

Peter Petrelli: You need to tell Heidi the truth.
Nathan Petrelli: No. She doesn't need the truth. She needs hope.

Peter Petrelli: [to Nathan] I need you to get me a painting, alright. Linderman bought it.


"Heroes: Chapter Four 'I Am Become Death' (#3.4)" (2008/II)
Peter Petrelli: I'm not leaving without your abilities, Sylar.
Future Sylar: My name's Gabriel. And you don't realize, my ability is not just understanding how things work; there's a hunger... that comes with it, to know more, to have more. I couldn't control it; it turned me into a killer... a monster. And every day is a struggle, every hour.
[looks at his son]
Future Sylar: But I fight it... for him. And I am not going to willingly condemn you to hell.

Future Peter Petrelli: Look, someone from your time is putting together a formula that gives people abilities. You have to find him and stop him.
Peter Petrelli: Why me? Why can't you do it?
Future Peter Petrelli: Because I made terrible choices. I stepped on too many butterflies.

Peter Petrelli: If I have your ability, I can understand the variables, then I can...
Future Sylar: You can save the world? The world always needs saving, Peter.

Sylar: You took my ability? Well now, you have the hunger. You're like me.
Peter Petrelli: I will never let myself become you!
Sylar: You already are... brother!

Claire Bennet: You're not gonna kill me.
Peter Petrelli: Yes, I am.

Future Peter Petrelli: Our powers are weapons of choice.


"Heroes: Chapter Nineteen '.07%' (#1.19)" (2007/II)
Peter Petrelli: What do you do with something that killed you?
Nathan Petrelli: Put it under your pillow.

Peter Petrelli: You saved my life.
Claire Bennet: Guess we're even now.

Nathan Petrelli: I don't know who I am without you.
Peter Petrelli: Course you do. You're Nathan Petrelli. Top of his class, valedictorian, most-likely-to. You're that guy with me or without me.
Nathan Petrelli: Who's to say I'm not all that because of you? Most of what we are is what people expect us to be. I mean, if you take them away, nothing means anything.

Peter Petrelli: Suresh...? Suresh...? It's Peter Petrelli... Mohinder...?
Mohinder Suresh: Sylar...
Sylar: I remember you... You're like me aren't you? I'd like to see how that works.

[Peter is holding the piece of glass Claire pulled out of his head]
Peter Petrelli: What do you do with something that killed you?
Nathan Petrelli: You could put it underneath your pillow.
[pauses]
Nathan Petrelli: I don't know what I would've done.
Peter Petrelli: Don't think about it. I didn't die.
Nathan Petrelli: Yeah, but if you had...

Peter Petrelli: It's a good thing I can't die, then.
Nathan Petrelli: What?
Peter Petrelli: Oh, I got that from Claire. She can regenerate.
Nathan Petrelli: No matter what happens?
Peter Petrelli: I think so.
Nathan Petrelli: What about the painting? If you explode, I mean if that happens, you could survive it?
Peter Petrelli: Doesn't really matter, does it? I mean, if I go nuclear, if I blow up New York, you know how many people are gonna die?
Nathan Petrelli: Point O seven per cent.
Peter Petrelli: Talk to her, Nathan. She wants to know her father.
Nathan Petrelli: I can't deal with that right now.
Peter Petrelli: She's not just some girl, she's your daughter. You know that Mom wants to send her to Paris? You can't let her go. Don't you get it? Claire's the girl I saved in Texas, save the cheerleader...
Nathan Petrelli: ...Save the world, I get it.
Peter Petrelli: And she turns out to be your daughter. Your daughter. Look around. Everything I said is happening is happening now. It's real. And maybe if Claire is here, I don't blow up. Maybe she's here to save us. Talk to her, Nathan. We need her.
[Angela Petrelli walks in]
Peter Petrelli: About what just happened, Nathan and I need to talk to you.
Angela Petrelli: It's okay, I know. I knew long before either of you did.


"Heroes: Chapter Three 'One Giant Leap' (#1.3)" (2006/II)
Peter Petrelli: [punches Nathan in the face] You son of a bitch!
Nathan Petrelli: Let him go. Easy, Pete. That's our mother you're talking about.

Nathan Petrelli: [Nathan is picking out a tie] What do you think? Red or blue?
Peter Petrelli: I don't know. Blue?
Nathan Petrelli: I'm gonna go red. The president wears red.

Peter Petrelli: Listen, I-I tried it again.
Nathan Petrelli: Tried what?
Peter Petrelli: What do you mean what? What do you think that I mean? I-I tried to fly.
Nathan Petrelli: Would you keep your voice down?
Peter Petrelli: You were there. Last night I could fly. This morning, nothing. I nearly broke my neck trying.
Nathan Petrelli: Well, that would have solved one of our problems.

Peter Petrelli: [to Simone] Look, the truth is, I've been trying to save the world, one person at a time, but, I'm meant for something bigger. Something important. I know it now.

Peter Petrelli: To destiny.
Simone Deveaux: Mmm.
Peter Petrelli: May we recognize it when we see it.
Simone Deveaux: To love. May we stay away from it when it's no good for us. You know earlier today, when you were telling me how you'd changed?
Peter Petrelli: Yeah.
Simone Deveaux: I noticed it. There's just something different. It's like a look in your eye. A confidence.
Peter Petrelli: There's something I should tell you. Something, uh... I didn't think was right to say when I still worked for your father. Something I wouldn't have even said to you two days ago. I've been in love with you since the minute I first laid eyes on you.


"Heroes: Chapter Eleven 'The Fifth Stage' (#4.12)" (2009/II)
Angela Petrelli: Please, Peter, think about what you're doing.
Peter Petrelli: I have. Gonna go get Nathan back.
Angela Petrelli: What happens when you find out there's not a Nathan to get back?
Peter Petrelli: I guess I'll just settle for revenge.

Sylar: Listen, Peter. I'm pretty disappointed in you. Your plan was to syringe me in the neck with drugs. Wasn't that the old plan? I mean, don't get me wrong, congrats for... pulling it off in the first place. But fool me twice, you know?
Peter Petrelli: [coming from behind] Yeah, I know.
[whacks Sylar over the head with a plank]

Peter Petrelli: Remember the last time we were up here?
Nathan Petrelli: Yep. Yeah, I do. You were standing on that edge right there. Like an idiot. Asking me about Dad's depression. Asking me if I could fly.
Peter Petrelli: Do you remember what you said?
Nathan Petrelli: I said we could both fly.
Peter Petrelli: No, no, no. Before that.
[Nathan tries to remember, without success]
Peter Petrelli: You denied it.
Nathan Petrelli: [nonchalantly] It was an election year.

Peter Petrelli: We made it through. Together. Made it through all the craziness, you and me. We can make it through anything, Nathan.
Nathan Petrelli: Even death?
Peter Petrelli: Why not?

Nathan Petrelli: You're gonna have to carry on for the both of us, Pete. Okay? You tell Mom I love her. You take care of Claire. Fight the good fight. You've always been everything that's good in the world, Pete.
Peter Petrelli: Nathan...
Nathan Petrelli: And I got a feeling the world ain't seen nothing yet.
Peter Petrelli: I can't do this without you.
Nathan Petrelli: You can do anything, Pete. Anything. Remember that. I love you.


"Heroes: Chapter Eighteen 'Brave New World' (#4.19)" (2010/II)
Peter Petrelli: [reading Eli's mind] Samuel's gonna show the world his powers... New York City... Central Park... Tonight.
Sylar: What does he mean, show his power?
Peter Petrelli: He's gonna open up the ground, kill them all, bury 'em.
Sylar: That sounds like a plan I'd come up with back in the day.

Samuel Sullivan: You seem to have found my power.
Peter Petrelli: It's funny how that works, huh? I'm not gonna let you hurt anyone now.
Samuel Sullivan: Peter, you of all people should know they have to fear us! That's the only way they'll respect us. All you've ever wanted is respect. We both know what it's like to live in the shadow of a brother. Joseph destroyed my potential, kept me down, just like your brother.
Peter Petrelli: My brother didn't let me down. He built me up.

Peter Petrelli: So, how does it feel to be ordinary?

[last lines of Volume V]
Noah Bennet: I got to say... I never liked carnivals.
Peter Petrelli: Yup.

Peter Petrelli: [on Claire] What the hell does she think she's doing? She's gonna change everything.
Sylar: That's right. It's a brave new world.


"Heroes: Chapter Nine 'Homecoming' (#1.9)" (2006/II)
Peter Petrelli: You saw this painting - alright? You can describe it to me.
Simone Deveraux: You really believe this, don't you? "Save the cheerleader, save the world"?
Peter Petrelli: For reasons I can't begin to understand. There are people that are counting on me to do this. I don't know if I can, but I have to try.
Simone Deveraux: [mutters] This doesn't make any sense; I probably shouldn't be showing you this. It's a digital image. It came with the painting.
[the image is of Peter's crumpled body]
Simone Deveraux: Is that you, Peter?
Peter Petrelli: [shaken] I don't know. Maybe...
Simone Deveraux: If it's you, then you're going to die, at 8:12 tonight. Don't go, Peter.
Peter Petrelli: I have to. I have to.

Ando Masahashi: You have a power - ?
Peter Petrelli: Sort of...
Ando Masahashi: Super-strength? You bend time and space like Hiro?
Peter Petrelli: No, I... I kind of absorb the abilities of others - but only when they're close. Truthfully? When I'm by myself, I don't... I'm not really anything.
[pause]
Peter Petrelli: I've got less than an hour. If it happens at eight twelve, I have to go. Coming?
Ando Masahashi: No. I will wait for Hiro. Without him, I am not really anything, either. Maybe you should wait too.
Peter Petrelli: There's no time. I've got to save the cheerleader.
Ando Masahashi: But, Peter. You die.

Claire Bennet: You... How did you...
Peter Petrelli: Where is he?
Claire Bennet: I don't know. He ran away before I got here.
Peter Petrelli: Police. Go get some help, okay?
Claire Bennet: Okay. I'll be back... Hey. What's your name?
Peter Petrelli: Peter.
Claire Bennet: I'm Claire.
Peter Petrelli: Are you the one? By saving you, did I save the world?
Claire Bennet: I don't know. I'm just a cheerleader.

Claire Bennet: Ooh, sorry!
Peter Petrelli: Sorry.
Claire Bennet: That was my fault. I wasn't looking where I was going.
Peter Petrelli: Hey, do you... do you know this girl, Jackie Wilcox?
Claire Bennet: Uh, yeah, half-time show starts in about five minutes. She'll be out on the field. She's a cheerleader. Are you a reporter or something?
Peter Petrelli: Alumni. I'm just curious.
Claire Bennet: [pause] You know, between you and me, she's not that special. Just your average teenage girl.
Peter Petrelli: She rushed into a fire and saved a man's life, sounds kinda special to me.
Claire Bennet: Yeah, you're right. I'm jealous. She's our town hero. Me? I don't win too many popularity contests.
Peter Petrelli: Hey, it gets better!
Claire Bennet: What?
Peter Petrelli: Life after high school. It gets a lot better.


"Heroes: Chapter Seventeen 'The Wall' (#4.18)" (2010/II)
Sylar: [on Emma] It's time to face reality, Peter, that girl is gone, and if she was meant to kill thousands, they're dead too. Everybody's dead except us.
Peter Petrelli: The only thing that's *real* is us.

[Peter takes a sledgehammer to get busy on the wall]
Sylar: You wanna know something weird? Every time you pick that thing up I think you're gonna hit me with it really hard.
Peter Petrelli: [chuckles] That *is* weird, because every time I pick it up I feel like I'm gonna hit you with it too - really hard.
Sylar: Why?
Peter Petrelli: Because you are who you are. I wish I could accept your apologies, but if I f-forgive you, then I'm not doing right by him.
Sylar: Nathan... If you let go of your anger, you're afraid you'll lose him forever? So you've held on to it this entire time?
Peter Petrelli: I feel it slipping away, but... then I look at you, and I see you killing him. You took my brother away from me.

Sylar: We've been here for I don't know how many years. Together. I've changed, I've repented. I'm never gonna hurt anyone ever again. And all this time, you were afraid to let me out.
[Peter keeps hammering against the wall]
Sylar: Peter!
[Peter pauses in his activity]
Sylar: I'm not that guy anymore, Peter, you know that.
Peter Petrelli: I know. I know you're not.
[he resumes, hitting another blow against the wall; the wall cracks]

[after breaking through the wall]
Sylar: How long has it been, really?
Peter Petrelli: [checks his watch] Half a day, maybe.
Sylar: Feels like we were in there for years.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah.
Sylar: Does that make it any less real?


"Heroes: Chapter Seven 'Eris Quod Sum' (#3.7)" (2008/II)
[Peter tells Nathan that their father is still alive]
Nathan Petrelli: It's impossible, Pete. Dad died over a year ago.
Peter Petrelli: He's the one who put mom in that coma.
Nathan Petrelli: Pete, this is our dad we're talking about here.
Claire Bennet: [ironic] Believe me, dads aren't always what they seem.

Peter Petrelli: You can't listen to him.
Sylar: But he's our father.
Peter Petrelli: He's my father, I grew up with him.
Sylar: Oh, I didn't, so I don't get the right to know him, is that what you're saying?

Peter Petrelli: I keep thinking about that fall - how I didn't hit as hard as I should've. What if Sylar didn't want me to die, what if... he wanted to get me out of there alive?
Claire Bennet: By throwing you out of the window?

Peter Petrelli: With or without my powers, I'm gonna find a way to shut you down, and then I will make you pay for everything you've ever done!
Arthur Petrelli: Son, until you change that attitude - you're grounded.


"Heroes: Chapter Eight 'Four Months Ago...' (#2.8)" (2007/II)
Peter Petrelli: I'm Peter.
Adam Monroe: Hello, Peter. It's nice to meet you. I'm Adam.

Peter Petrelli: I don't understand. If they're not gonna help us, why are we here?
Adam Monroe: Keep us from being out there.
Peter Petrelli: Why, because we're dangerous?
Adam Monroe: No, Peter. It's because we could save the world.

[Elle strokes Peter's head, sending a few electroshocks over it]
Peter Petrelli: Ow! That hurts!
Elle Bishop: You'll get used to it. And then you'll start to like it.

[last lines]
Peter Petrelli: I remember! I remember everything!
Adam Monroe: Good then - shall we save the world?


"Heroes: Chapter One 'A Clear and Present Danger' (#3.14)" (2009/II)
Peter Petrelli: You ever get the feeling like you're meant to do something extraordinary?
Mohinder Suresh: [chuckles] I used to. Turns out I was mistaken.

Nathan Petrelli: I'd like to talk to you about some ideas. I'd like your input, your - advice.
Peter Petrelli: Advice? What advice could I possibly give you besides 'Kiss my ass', Nathan?

Nathan Petrelli: I can only imagine how you feel about me after - disowning you the way I did. It was selfish, arrogant, - obsessive.
Peter Petrelli: Those are your better qualities, Nathan.

Peter Petrelli: What's the last thing you saw me do, Nathan?
Nathan Petrelli: You flew.


"Heroes: Chapter Two 'The Butterfly Effect' (#3.2)" (2008/II)
Angela Petrelli: It's called the butterfly effect. You step on a butterfly today; three years from now a million people are wiped out.
Peter Petrelli: Let's just hope it's nobody that I know.

Peter Petrelli: What were you doing?
Claire Bennet: What does it look like? Trying to get hit by a train!

Angela Petrelli: I had another dream - one I'd rather not repeat. And all because you're not where you're supposed to be. So go back where you came from, Peter.
Peter Petrelli: Sorry, I'm a little too busy saving the world right now.

Peter Petrelli: Everything's different.


"Heroes: Chapter Eight 'Into Asylum' (#3.21)" (2009/II)
Peter Petrelli: Your coat's sopping wet. I found this one in the bins; it looked like something you'd wear.
Angela Petrelli: It should; it's mine.

Angela Petrelli: There used to be love in this family once. Look at us now. It's all my fault.
Peter Petrelli: You come here to be forgiven?
Angela Petrelli: I'm not sure even God has that in him.

[talking to God]
Peter Petrelli: I asked to be extraordinary. And I promised I'd make the world a better place. So when I got my chance, I lived up to my end of the bargain. For what? I'm running for my life. A lot of people are running for their lives. They're hurt and they're dying and I can't help them. Do You even care what You put people through? When they kneel here, before You, and they ask for help, do You even listen? And I'm tired of fighting. And I'm angry. I'm angry at my father, Nathan, and my mother. At You. We had a deal. I think it's about time You lived up to Your end. Please, just... show up.


"Heroes: Chapter Twenty-Three 'How to Stop an Exploding Man' (#1.23)" (2007/II)
Peter Petrelli: [as he's starting to lose control of the radiation, and sees Claire approaching with a gun] . Do it! Do it! You're the only one, Claire!
Claire Bennet: [sobbing] Tell me there's another way! Please!
Peter Petrelli: Shoot me! There is no other way!
Nathan Petrelli: [swoops down from the sky and lands between Claire and Peter] Yes there is, Claire. The future isn't written in stone.
[gently lowers the gun Claire is holding]
Peter Petrelli: I took his power, Nathan. I can't control it! I can't do anything!
Nathan Petrelli: [walks calmly towards Peter] I'm not leaving you Peter. There's another way to end this, and you know it.
Peter Petrelli: [guessing Nathan's plan] I can't let you die.
Nathan Petrelli: And *I* can't let everyone else.
[quickly glances back at Claire]
Nathan Petrelli: *You* saved the cheerleader, so *we* could save the world.
Peter Petrelli: I love you, Nathan.
Nathan Petrelli: I love you, too.
[looks up at the sky]
Nathan Petrelli: You ready?
[Peter nods yes. Nathan grabs him and flys him up into the stratosphere]

Sylar: Haven't I killed you before?
Peter Petrelli: Didn't take.

Peter Petrelli: Thank you, Mr. Bennet.
Noah Bennet: Call me Noah.


"Heroes: Chapter Thirteen 'Let It Bleed' (#4.14)" (2010/II)
[first lines]
Peter Petrelli: I want to see him.
[Bennet opens the boot of his car for Peter, revealing Nathan's dead body]
Noah Bennet: Plane's ready to go. I can handle this, Peter. You don't have to have any part in it.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, I do.

[after wreaking havoc in an office, Adam holds Peter at gunpoint]
Adam: You work here?
Peter Petrelli: No. I'm just like you - having a bad day. The worst, in fact. You see, I just buried my brother. He was murdered. And if that's not bad enough, I had to stage his death, like I'm some kind of mobster or spy. But I'm not; I'm just some kid from New York City. And now everyone expects me to shake hands and pretend everything's normal, but it's not. It's far from that.
Adam: Why're you telling me this, man?
Peter Petrelli: Because I understand where you're at right now. You want to punish the people that have hurt you. I know what that feels like. I want to torture the guy that murdered my brother. I want to make him scream; that's all I can think about. But I'm trying to be hopeful. I'm trying to be strong, even though I feel myself slipping. Look, I promised my brother that I'd be a hero. Don't make me a liar. Not today.

Angela Petrelli: How are you?
Peter Petrelli: OK. I'm OK, Mom.
Angela Petrelli: Nathan was a better liar.
Peter Petrelli: Must have gotten that from you.


"Heroes: Chapter Eighteen 'Parasite' (#1.18)" (2007/II)
[last lines]
Peter Petrelli: Suresh? Suresh? It's Peter Petrelli. Mohinder?
Mohinder Suresh: Sylar...
Sylar: I remember you... You're like me aren't you? I'd like to see how that works.

Peter Petrelli: [to Nathan] I thought I could be a hero, save the world. Instead I just killed it.

Nathan Petrelli: Just stay with me.
Peter Petrelli: I can't. I can't. As long as I'm alive, everyone around me is in danger.


"Heroes: Chapter Three 'Kindred' (#2.3)" (2007/II)
Caitlin: Don't worry about tonight. I'll be there to watch your back.
Peter Petrelli: How do I know I can trust you?
Caitlin: I haven't told anyone about what you can do, now have I?
Peter Petrelli: Why is that?
Caitlin: Girl's gotta have her secrets.

Ricky: See, Celtic is taking on AC Milan.
Tuko: We're talking football, yeah? Soccer.
Peter Petrelli: I lost my memory; I'm not an idiot.

Peter Petrelli: When I had Will against the wall I could have killed him. I wanted to. What if that's who I am?
Caitlin: But you didn't kill him, did you?
Peter Petrelli: No, that's because of you.
Caitlin: It's not because of me, Peter. You're a good soul. I can tell.
Peter Petrelli: What if I open this box and I find otherwise?
[pause]
Caitlin: Do you like where you are right now? Do you like who you are right now?
[Peter nods]
Caitlin: Well then, maybe for now, you just leave it be.


"Heroes: Chapter Nine 'It's Coming' (#3.9)" (2008/II)
Peter Petrelli: This isn't your fight. I need you to stay...
Claire Bennet: Stay what?
Peter Petrelli: Innocent.

[Peter tries to prevent Claire from fighting the villains]
Peter Petrelli: Claire, just... go home! Please.
Claire Bennet: No. That's not gonna happen. And it's all your fault. You should've never come to Odessa to save me; you should've never become my friend or my hero. And now I can't leave you because *I* have a favor to return.

[Peter is facing Knox and Flint, who have captured Claire]
Peter Petrelli: You got two choices: let her go or you die.
Flint: You and what army?


"Heroes: Chapter Two 'Don't Look Back' (#1.2)" (2006/II)
Peter Petrelli: What happened?
Nathan Petrelli: You don't remember?
Peter Petrelli: No.
Nathan Petrelli: You jumped, Pete.
Peter Petrelli: Jumped?
Nathan Petrelli: Off the roof of a fifteen story building. You tried to kill yourself.

Peter Petrelli: I jumped, and you... you flew.
Nathan Petrelli: I what?
Peter Petrelli: You flew up and you caught me.
Nathan Petrelli: You jumped, Peter, twenty five feet to a fire escape. I climbed up and carried you down. That's what happened. The rest is just crazy talk. You understand?

Peter Petrelli: [standing on the roof, preparing to jump] Tell me you flew. I wanna hear you say that you flew. Tell me or I jump again.
[Nathan says nothing]
Peter Petrelli: Good luck on your campaign when I'm splattered all over the ground below.
Nathan Petrelli: All right. You want the truth?
Peter Petrelli: Yeah.
Nathan Petrelli: We both flew, Pete. I caught you and I lost control. You were too heavy. We both started falling to the ground and just before we... just before we hit, you flew. You.
Peter Petrelli: [incredulous] Are you lying to me?
[Nathan shakes his head]
Peter Petrelli: You are.
[moves towards Nathan]
Peter Petrelli: You're tryin' telling me what you think I wanna hear. You're lying to me, again!
[Nathan points at Peter's feet. Peter looks down to see himself hovering. Shocked, he drops back onto the rooftop]
Peter Petrelli: Did you see that? Did you see that? That- I flew!
Nathan Petrelli: I know, I know.


"Heroes: Chapter Six 'Dying of the Light' (#3.6)" (2008/II)
Peter Petrelli: When I saw you in the future you've... changed. You found a way to suppress it. How?
Sylar: I don't know. But just knowing that I figure it out, just believing it's a possibility gives me hope.

Peter Petrelli: [beating up Sylar] I know what it feels like now - all this power. I'm the most special!

Sylar: I found her like this. She's in some kind of coma.
[Sylar holds Angela's hand]
Peter Petrelli: You're worried. You actually care about her.
Sylar: She's my mother, too, Peter.


"Heroes: Chapter Ten 'Six Months Ago' (#1.10)" (2006/II)
Nathan Petrelli: [presents Peter with shoes for his Graduation of Nursing School gift] Ladies' ten and a half!
Peter Petrelli: Oh, you know, the reason I became a nurse was to wear shoes like this, thank you very much.
Nathan Petrelli: Can I get a drink?
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, yeah. Just right inside.
Heidi Petrelli: I told him it wasn't funny.

Peter Petrelli: [to his Mother, regarding his Father] Listen, I did this without his blessing, and without his money. Okay, so I think it's only right that we celebrate without him.


"Heroes: Chapter Five 'Fight or Flight' (#2.5)" (2007/II)

Peter Petrelli: I can't hide anymore. I can't hide.

Peter Petrelli: Weren't you the one who didn't want me to look in that box?
Caitlin: I only said that because you hadn't kissed me yet.
[he kisses her]
Peter Petrelli: Now that you have, you done with me?

Those are all things... usually a father'll teach his son. But Dad wasn't around. So it was Nathan. I wish to hell it would've been my father; because Nathan didn't make it easy. He would throw it high or... he'd throw it wide, and I would yell at him, and tell him to throw it right at me; but he'd say to me, "That's not how it's gonna come at you in a game, Pete." I used to think he was being a big brother and was just pickin' on me. But now I understand. He just wanted me to be ready. For anything.
[he places his hand on Nathan's casket]
Peter Petrelli: I'm ready, brother. For whatever comes.
