"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.

Mr. Linderman: Look, I said people needed hope, but they trust fear.
Nathan Petrelli: This is crazy.
Mr. Linderman: This tragedy will be a catalyst for good, for change. Out of the ashes humanity will find a common goal, a united sense of hope - couched in a united sense of fear.

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.

Nathan Petrelli: [Nathan sees Hiro in one of Isaac's paintings] I know this man.
Mr. Linderman: Oh, great. If you see him again tell him I want my sword back.
Nathan Petrelli: He said he needed it to save the world. A lot of people seem to be saying that these days.

[Nathan is uncovering a painting of him, Claire knocks on door]
Claire Bennet: Your mom said you wanted to talk to me?
Nathan Petrelli: I did, I do. Come in. Please. This should've happened a long time ago, under better circumstances. It shouldn't take someone nearly dying for the two of us to finally meet.
Claire Bennet: You know, you don't have to this. Pretend to be nice to me.
Nathan Petrelli: I'm not pretending. Claire, most people think the worst of me and I've probably given them a good reason to, but I want to do better. I want to be there for you.
[pauses]
Nathan Petrelli: But I can't. Not now.
Claire Bennet: Of course.
Nathan Petrelli: I'm sorry, but there are things happening right now that I don't expect you to understand. I barely understand them myself. I went into politics for the chance to do something good, to have a chance to help. To be a part of something big. And in order to do that, I have to...
Claire Bennet: The election. Can't have some illegitimate daughter popping up right in front of the cameras.
Nathan Petrelli: I need to win.
Claire Bennet: You need me to leave. Paris with my grandmother.
Nathan Petrelli: She warms up. Sort of. It's just one week.
Claire Bennet: And then what?
Nathan Petrelli: And then you come home to your family. Okay?
[Claire and Nathan hug]

Nathan Petrelli: What could you possibly know about healing?
Mr. Linderman: [touches dying plant, then waves hand in front of it slowly as the plant heals] A few things.

Mr. Linderman: This isn't just a collection of art. This is a road map. These artists envisioned a brighter future: peace, prosperity...
Nathan Petrelli: That's your idea of a brighter future?
[points at painting of nuclear explosion]
Mr. Linderman: What if I was to tell you that it was?
Nathan Petrelli: I'd say you were a lousy humanitarian.

[Claire walks into the room while Nathan and Angela mourn Peter]
Nathan Petrelli: [voice breaking] Claire?
Claire Bennet: I know you don't want me here. I just want to see him. I came all this way.
[short pause]
Angela Petrelli: Let the girl have her moment.
[Nathan and Angela leave the room]
Claire Bennet: [to Peter's seemingly lifeless body] I didn't even get to know you... You're the only one who ever made me feel safe. I thought you were like me.
[Claire strokes Peter's head, eventually pulling the glass shard out of the back of his head; Peter coughs loudly]
Angela Petrelli: Peter?

[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.

Nathan Petrelli: [Nathan sees Hiro in one of Isaac's paintings] I have seen him before.
Daniel Linderman: If you see him again tell him I want my sword back.


"Heroes: Chapter Twenty 'Five Years Gone' (#1.20)" (2007/II)
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] I'm the leader of the free world. For all I know, I'm the most special person there is. Lord knows I found enough power, that there are lot of people - like this girl named Candice who allowed me to become President. But I am done. I just wanna eliminate the competition. I don't need any more power specially not after you.
[Claire turns to leave but is frozen in place by "Nathan"; a strange humming noise is heard as blood streams down Claire's face]

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?

Mohinder Suresh: But we cannot change who they are, Mr. President.
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] So in other words, we failed.
Mohinder Suresh: No, no. The measures that we put in place...
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] They're not working!

Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] These events are increasing. People are anticipating another Sylar. In your original assessment you posited a possible solution. Extinction.
Mohinder Suresh: Yes, but I never meant to suggest that...
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan, reading from report] "They wouldn't be the first species to be exterminated for the preservation of another". Your words.
Mohinder Suresh: I was talking about the natural order of things. What you're talking about is genocide.

Mohinder Suresh: [to Sylar, as Nathan] You're one of them, Nathan! Am I supposed to march you off to the gas chambers as well?
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] I'm thankful for the secrets you kept. But let's be honest. I can fly. I'm hardly dangerous.
[regarding people's powers]
Nathan Petrelli: I value your opinion as a scientist and friend. But f I gave you five years... ten years, twenty more years... be honest with me. Could you reverse it?
Mohinder Suresh: No. Probably not.
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] Then we need to start thinking about "Plan B".

Mohinder Suresh: But what happens when people start dying?
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] I'll say you made a mistake. A fatal error. At first the world will mourn. They'll be united in grief. And then they'll just be united.

Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan, to Mohinder] I understand how things work.

Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] I thought you were dead. You have no idea how important you are for me Claire.
Claire Bennet: I am not important. I am just a waitress.
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] We both know that is not true.
Claire Bennet: You made everyone afraid of us.
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] I made everyone aware of us. Fear is just a natural response. We can't blame them really. We are more powerful than they are; more important, we are special.
Claire Bennet: Who are you to decide who is special and who is not?

Matt Parkman: [on the phone] The Haitian's down. The Haitian is down.
Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan, on the phone] What about Nakamura?
Matt Parkman: [on the phone] I can't get to him, Sir. Your brother is holding us off. If I don't get reinforcements now, it's all over, Sir. Nakamura will escape.

Nathan Petrelli: [Sylar posing as Nathan] Get in there Parkman, end this!
Matt Parkman: Yes, Sir! Move it!


"Heroes: Chapter Five 'Hiros' (#1.5)" (2006/II)
Nathan Petrelli: All right, I get it. A guy in his pajamas. Ha ha. Now we can all stare and have a good laugh, or one of you can lend me your cell phone.

Hiro Nakamura: [steps out of Nathan's limo] Vote Petrelli!
Nathan Petrelli: Early and often.

Nathan Petrelli: Two million dollars makes me a candidate in your pocket. Four million makes me a congressman.
[gives a big smile]

Nathan Petrelli: Do you have any idea who I am?
Mr. Bennet: Better than even you do.

Nathan Petrelli: Who do you want to be?
Niki Sanders: Someone good. A good mother. Not the person that I see in the mirror.
Nathan Petrelli: Look, I don't know how much of last night was an act, and how much was you. The girl I met, that's the kind of girl you spend your entire life waiting to meet. Somebody strong, somebody beautiful, somebody... good.

Nathan Petrelli: What the hell did you to me?
Niki Sanders: I could ask you the same thing. All I know is that I woke up in your room somehow and you were gone.

Nathan Petrelli: Can I help you?
Hiro Nakamura: Hiro. Hiro Nakamura.
Nathan Petrelli: Oh. Nathan Petrelli.
[they shake hands]
Hiro Nakamura: Petrelli, listen. Very nice to meet you...
Nathan Petrelli: Thank you.
Hiro Nakamura: [whispering] Flying man! Oh, you fly. I see you! Whoosh!
Nathan Petrelli: Thank you. I don't know what you're talking about.
Hiro Nakamura: Oh, it's okay. I keep secret. I bend time and space! Teleported into future! We are both special!
Nathan Petrelli: Alrighty then.
Hiro Nakamura: Oh, I-I go to New York. I see future. Big bomb goes there. Bad for many people.
[makes exploding noises]
Nathan Petrelli: I can see where that might be a problem.
Hiro Nakamura: Don't worry. I stop it. I'm a hero.
Nathan Petrelli: Lucky us. Gotta go. In this future that you see? You don't happen to know whether or not I win the election, do you?
Hiro Nakamura: Nathan Petrelli. Nathan. Hai! Hai! Hai! Yes! I know you! Nathan Petrelli! Election. You win. Very big win. Mudslide.
Nathan Petrelli: I gotta get back to Vegas.
Hiro Nakamura: Give me ride-o? Please? Ride-o?
[imitates car horn]
Hiro Nakamura: Boo-boo!
Nathan Petrelli: Sure. Well, what the hell? What did you say your name was?
Hiro Nakamura: Hiro Nakamura.
Nathan Petrelli: And where are you from?
Hiro Nakamura: Tokyo, Japan.
Nathan Petrelli: Ah, never been there.

Nathan Petrelli: [cornered by Mr Bennet and the Haitian] You might as well go ahead and shoot now. Because I'll find you and I will kill you.
Mr. Bennet: Unlikely, Mr Petrelli.
Nathan Petrelli: I've seen your faces.
Mr. Bennet: That, I'm afraid, won't be a problem.
[to the Haitian]
Mr. Bennet: Put him down.
[the Haitian moves towards Nathan who flies away super fast leaving him and Mr Bennet staring at the sky]


"Heroes: Chapter Two 'Trust and Blood' (#3.15)" (2009/II)
Danko: [of the fugitives] These people of yours are dangerous.
Nathan Petrelli: These people are going into custody. We're not assassins.
Danko: If you have a rabid dog, you don't put a chain around its neck and pray for miracles. You put it down!

Nathan Petrelli: [about Danko] Don't worry about him, he's useful. Until he's not.

Danko: Right now, you're the President's golden boy. If you pull this off, you can write your own ticket. The downside is, it goes south. You can kiss your political career goodbye. Go back to playing house in your momma's mansion.
Nathan Petrelli: We're all replaceable - some of us more than others.

Nathan Petrelli: You need to give yourself up now. I can promise you won't get hurt.
Tracy Strauss: Your promises haven't been worth much lately. You'll have to do better.
Nathan Petrelli: This isn't a negotiation. You don't have anything I want.
Tracy Strauss: I have Peter.

Nathan Petrelli: Young lady, you're headed back to Costa Verde.
Claire Bennet: So, that's it - I just dance away to college, pretend everything is all hunky-dory?
Nathan Petrelli: Something like that, yeah.
Claire Bennet: [sarcastic] So I get a pass. And everyone I know just... disappears - except for Senator Sky-Boy of course, because he's got everything under control.

Nathan Petrelli: What I've come to realize is that these powers just lead to chaos. Good people, through no fault of their own, cannot control it. It just leads to disaster.
Tracy Strauss: You son of a bitch. Maybe that's what you tell yourself so you can sleep at night. But this is about you - your ambition. It's all you are, Nathan. It's all you ever were.


"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.

Nathan Petrelli: As many of you might have read, my brother Peter had an accident. But what I've kept from the press thus far is that, Peter barely survived a suicide attempt. My first instinct was to keep his illness hidden but no one should suffer alone because we are all connected somehow. Everyone in this room. You, me, everyone in this city. And we need to look out for each other.

Nathan Petrelli: ...he turns around to the other one and says, Holy Cow, a talkin' dog.


"Heroes: Chapter Five 'Angels and Monsters' (#3.5)" (2008/II)
[first lines]
Nathan Petrelli: It's all happening so fast. My life is a speeding train, and I'm not sure where it's headed. But one thing is certain - I've been given a second chance. Touched by God, I've got to believe that He has a purpose for my life. So why am I filled with self-doubt? Plagued by demons, real - and imaginary? Frightened by the challenges ahead and haunted by the ghosts of my past. Does God know what I am? Do I? Am I an angel or a monster? A hero or a villain? And why can't I see the difference?

[Nathan tries to stop Tracy from going public with her ability]
Nathan Petrelli: I've been there. I understand, I... I wanted to tell the world, I even called a press conference.
Tracy Strauss: What happened?
Nathan Petrelli: I got shot. I died. And then I saw God. And I truly believe with all my heart that he's got a higher purpose for us.

Nathan Petrelli: You're not a messenger from God.
Daniel Linderman: Moses saw a burning bush; Mary heard the angels. God came to Samuel in his dreams.
Nathan Petrelli: And I've got a dead mobster telling me he's the voice of God.

Nathan Petrelli: [after learning about the secret behind his own ability] It wasn't God...
Angela Petrelli: We were trying to be better than God.

Angela Petrelli: Someone has stolen the formula; they want to restart this project. They want to create a world filled with dangerous people - deadly, out of control. They will destroy everything. Please help me stop them.
Nathan Petrelli: Go to hell.


"Heroes: Chapter Four 'Collision' (#1.4)" (2006/II)
Mohinder Suresh: Your life may be in danger. I believe someone is targeting you.
Nathan Petrelli: Can you be a little bit more specific? Twelve percent of the electorate strongly opposes me.

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.

Niki Sanders: I don't have a husband. He left.
Nathan Petrelli: For another woman?
Niki Sanders: I wish.
Nathan Petrelli: Man?
Niki Sanders: [laughs] I would take that one too.

Campaign Manager: I don't know about this. I mean, it just makes me nervous.
Nathan Petrelli: It's your job to be nervous. It's my job to get elected. In order to do that I need money. Linderman's two million, we could turn eight points into three and make it a horse race.

Campaign Manager: You're meeting Miss Sakamoto tomorrow at 11:00 a.m.
Nathan Petrelli: No Linderman?
Campaign Manager: Uh, he's quote "otherwise occupied".
Nathan Petrelli: Occupied? What is he, a Porta Potty? Don't let Sakamato geisha you. Get him in the room.


"Heroes: Chapter Eighteen 'Parasite' (#1.18)" (2007/II)
Mr. Linderman: You see, I think there comes a time when a man has to ask himself whether he wants a life of happiness or a life of meaning.
Nathan Petrelli: I'd like to think I have both.
Mr. Linderman: Can't be done. Two very different paths. I mean, to be truly happy, a man must live absolutely in the present. And with no thought of what's gone before, and no thought of what lies ahead. But, a life of meaning... A man is condemned to wallow in the past and obsess about the future. And my guess is that you've done quite a bit of obsessing about yours these last few days.

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.

Nathan Petrelli: Hiro?
Hiro Nakamura: [after he sees Nathan] Mr. Petrelli? Flying man!
Nathan Petrelli: Shh... Not here.
Hiro Nakamura: [softly] Flying man.
Nathan Petrelli: Let me guess, you're still trying to steal that sword from Mr. Linderman? Where's your friend?
Hiro Nakamura: Ando? I sent him back to Japan. This mission getting too dangerous for him.
Nathan Petrelli: I think I know what you mean. You can't protect everyone, right? Sometimes it's better to go it alone. The more people you try to help...
Hiro Nakamura: ...The more people get hurt. Please, you must help me. I can't get past casino security, try it.
Nathan Petrelli: When I first meet you, I thought you were nuts.
Hiro Nakamura: Is okay, I thought you were mean. But now I know you pretend that you don't care about anyone, but you care too much.

Mr. Linderman: Do you like vegetables, Nathan?
Nathan Petrelli: I've been known to eat zucchini when the mood strikes, but not as a rule.

Mr. Linderman: [about Nathan holding a gun on him] I won't hold it against you. Lots of men have tried to kill me.
Nathan Petrelli: Then I'll be the last.


"Heroes: Chapter One 'A Clear and Present Danger' (#3.14)" (2009/II)
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.

Claire Bennet: I hate you.
Nathan Petrelli: I know.

Nathan Petrelli: Someday you might forgive me, Claire. Someday you might not.


"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: 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.

[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 Twelve 'Godsend' (#1.12)" (2007/II)
Hiro Nakamura: The bomb, it comes from the street. Destroy everything! Everything turning to dust! Poof!
Nathan Petrelli: Your English is a lot better.
Hiro Nakamura: I met a waitress in Texas.
Nathan Petrelli: Oh, yeah?
Hiro Nakamura: She teach me many things.
Nathan Petrelli: Good for you. So, uh, look, I can't believe I'm about to say this. You-you... teleported here...? Back from the future?
Hiro Nakamura: Yes. My power let me come back here so I can stop it.
Nathan Petrelli: Right. Because "you're Hiro"?
Hiro Nakamura: You will help too.
Nathan Petrelli: Me? What makes you so sure?
Hiro Nakamura: You flying man! Whooshhhhh!
Nathan Petrelli: Would you keep it down?
Hiro Nakamura: [much quieter and softer] Whooshhhhh!
Nathan Petrelli: What do you think it is that makes this bomb thing go off?
Hiro Nakamura: Dunno. Probably bad guy?
Nathan Petrelli: Bad guy?
Hiro Nakamura: Yes. Like billain
Nathan Petrelli: What's that?
Hiro Nakamura: Billain.
Nathan Petrelli: Billain?
Hiro Nakamura: Billain.
Nathan Petrelli: Villain!
Hiro Nakamura: Vee?
Nathan Petrelli: Vee!
Hiro Nakamura: Vee-llain!

Nathan Petrelli: Just before he passed out he said he, uh... he felt he was absorbing too many powers.
Simone Deveaux: Peter wanted to see that painting.
Nathan Petrelli: After I told you not to let him, you knew he was gonna follow that thing head first, all the way to Texas. He's my brother, and I love him, but we both know he shouldn't have even been there.
Simone Deveaux: It was important to him.
Nathan Petrelli: You really believe all this crap? Future paintings? The end of the world?
Simone Deveaux: I know he believes it. And I believe in him.

Hiro Nakamura: Mr. Isaac. Bad news, sword not there. It was replica. Original owned by man named Linderman.
Nathan Petrelli: [Nathan comes from behind a painting] Did he say Linderman?
Hiro Nakamura: [throws up his hand and shouts] Flying man!

Peter Petrelli: I took his power, Nathan. I can't control it.
Nathan Petrelli: Let me help you, Peter.
Peter Petrelli: You can't. No! No!
[wakes up from his nightmare]
Peter Petrelli: Noooo!


"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]

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.

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 Thirteen 'Dual' (#3.13)" (2008/II)
Peter Petrelli: Following dad's insane plan? I'm gonna stop it.
Nathan Petrelli: It's not dad's plan anymore, Pete, it's ours.
Peter Petrelli: What're you talking about?
Nathan Petrelli: The plan. It's ours. All of us, making the world a better place. Don't tell me you're gonna try and get in the way of that.
Peter Petrelli: You sound just like him.
Nathan Petrelli: I know. I can't help but wonder how long it's gonna be before it's me lying to you.

Tracy Strauss: The document with the formula is all we need. We find it, we can start over: new game, our rules.
Nathan Petrelli: I can't run away, Tracy.
Tracy Strauss: It's not running away; I'm being a realist. That's why you hired me.
Nathan Petrelli: Then you're fired.

Nathan Petrelli: Why'd you save me? Why'd you do it?
Peter Petrelli: Because you're my brother, and I love you.
Nathan Petrelli: That's not what I would have done.

Nathan Petrelli: You're working for Peter?
Benjamin 'Knox' Washington: Yeah. He's one of the good guys now.


"Heroes: Chapter Thirteen 'The Fix' (#1.13)" (2007/II)
Nathan Petrelli: Dr. Suresh? Do you remember me?
Mohinder Suresh: Nathan Petrelli.
Nathan Petrelli: You yelled at my car.
Mohinder Suresh: Yes, we met under unfortunate circumstances. I believe I came off as a deranged lunatic.

Mohinder Suresh: Peter's specific DNA allows for a blend. Like colors in a mosaic, re-sequencing itself to mimic the abilities of those around him.
Nathan Petrelli: Like a chameleon.
Mohinder Suresh: More like a sponge. It's precisely why I've been studying him.
Nathan Petrelli: Could his condition become dangerous, to himself or to other people?
Mohinder Suresh: If he absorbs too much or comes into contact with an unstable ability, then most definitely yes.
Nathan Petrelli: Can you fix it?

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?


"Heroes: Chapter Eleven 'Powerless' (#2.11)" (2007/II)
Nathan Petrelli: You tried to do the right thing. You always do. You trusted that people are as good as you are. But if you see yourself as a monster, Pete, this guilt is just gonna eat you up inside. Believe me, I know.

Nathan Petrelli: We've been used by these people - manipulated. But it's over. It stops here. No more secrets.

Nathan Petrelli: Most of you have no idea who I am. My name is Nathan Petrelli, and I was elected to congress in the state of New York. Seems like a long time ago. I lost my position. I lost my brother. I lost my family. I'm sad to say that I lost my way. But while I was gone, I've had the chance to see the world through newly humbled eyes. Witnessed amazing things. Seen ordinary people among us trying their best each day - to be heroes. These ordinary people, like you, like me, are capable of extraordinary things. You have no idea how extraordinary. But there are other people - organizations, who don't want you to know the truth. I myself kept secrets. But last year, something incredible happened to me - and it changed my life. First...I was afraid. But I'm...I'm not afraid anymore. I'm here to tell you the truth.

Matt Parkman: [Nathan is flying with Parkman on his back] Whoa! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Slow down, slow down, SLOW DOWN!
[Nathan lands, drops Parkman and stretches out his back]
Matt Parkman: OK. We don't talk about that... ever again.
Nathan Petrelli: Agreed.


"Heroes: Chapter Eight 'Villains' (#3.8)" (2008/II)
Daniel Linderman: I heard your office is launching a full-scale investigation in all things Linderman. Care to comment?
Nathan Petrelli: I'd shave my wrists - handcuffs chafe.

Nathan Petrelli: [about Linderman] I'm gonna hurt that man. And when I do, if you're standing next to him, you're gonna get hurt too. It's time to choose a side, dad - your client or your family!

[Arthur and Angela are passionately embraced during their wedding anniversary]
Nathan Petrelli: All right, get a room.
Angela Petrelli: After forty-one years of marriage you take it where you can get it.

Nathan Petrelli: Izzy - he hated that dog.
Peter Petrelli: Of course. It was the only living thing he met that ever disobeyed him.


"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.

Nathan Petrelli: My brother Peter, the hospice nurse. Can you believe it? It's just...
Heidi Petrelli: Oh, it's a perfect fit. He's selfless and empathic.
Nathan Petrelli: He's self-centered and righteous. Self-righteous.

Nathan Petrelli: [to Peter] Dad's dead. He had a heart attack this morning. We should take comfort in the fact that he didn't know his sons were about to stab him in the back.


"Heroes: Chapter Seven 'Out of Time' (#2.7)" (2007/II)
Nathan Petrelli: I don't know this one. Who is he? Who is Adam Monroe?
Bob Bishop: Adam is... complicated.
Nathan Petrelli: Then un-complicate it.

Bob Bishop: Adam was the visionary. But with these abilities, sometimes people tend to think of themselves as gods. Did you ever think that, Nathan? Adam did. And he began to talk about holocausts, plagues - punishing humanity in order to save the world.
Nathan Petrelli: Sounds a lot like Linderman.

Bob Bishop: We stop Maury here, now.
Mohinder Suresh: You realize that makes you a bait?
Bob Bishop: We all have our roles to play.
Nathan Petrelli: That's what Linderman used to say. My mother too. It's always these half-truths, no straight answers, constant manipulation.


"Heroes: Chapter Eleven 'The Fifth Stage' (#4.12)" (2009/II)
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 Four 'I Am Become Death' (#3.4)" (2008/II)
Future Nathan Petrelli: You're strong, Pete. But one man cannot save the world. It's everybody's responsibility.

Nathan Petrelli: What exactly do you want from me?
Daniel Linderman: I want to help you. First, a senator. Then president.
Nathan Petrelli: [scoffs] President.
Daniel Linderman: The greater the fall, the grander the ascension. Isn't that what you've always wanted? Trust me; this is the path to salvation.
Nathan Petrelli: It's not my path - not if you're leading the way.

Daniel Linderman: You know - I thought you'd be enjoying this. You're a senator, back in the seat of power, where you belong - able to do God's work here on Earth.
Nathan Petrelli: God's work? I'm picking out desks.


"Heroes: Chapter Seven 'Eris Quod Sum' (#3.7)" (2008/II)
[Nathan intends to visit Pinehearst]
Tracy Strauss: I'm coming with you. I know the players there; I can open doors.
Nathan Petrelli: I don't need any doors open - I plan on kicking 'em down.

[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.

Nathan Petrelli: [about Suresh] What's he doing in there?
Noah Bennet: Building a nest... Laying eggs... Who the hell knows.


"Heroes: Chapter Eleven 'I Am Sylar' (#3.24)" (2009/II)
Nathan Petrelli: [to Sylar] Get the hell out of my body.

Nathan Petrelli: I don't need to defend myself to you. You're pathetic. You're a psychopath. People like you are the reason I went to the President in the first place. If you think for one minute anybody's gonna believe you're me, you're wrong.
Sylar: I'm not gonna be you - I'm gonna be *better* than you.

Nathan Petrelli: I started this, Pete. I gotta end it.


"Heroes: Chapter Seven 'Nothing to Hide' (#1.7)" (2006/II)
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: 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.


"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 One 'Orientation' (#4.1)" (2009/II)
Nathan Petrelli: I have been... a jackass. But... I'm gonna change all that. I'm gonna reconnect with everybody in my life who's important. And this time, I'm gonna be a better me!

Nathan Petrelli: I don't feel mortal. I feel invincible.


"Heroes: Chapter Twenty-One 'The Hard Part' (#1.21)" (2007/II)
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.

Nathan Petrelli: [on the phone] Mr. Linderman, we have a problem.


"Heroes: Chapter One 'The Second Coming' (#3.1)" (2008/II)
Nathan Petrelli: We could be angels - all here to do God's bidding.

Nathan Petrelli: [in church, speaking in Spanish to a parishioner] I saw God today.


"Heroes: Chapter Sixteen 'Unexpected' (#1.16)" (2007/II)
Nathan Petrelli: The last time I saw my brother, he flew out of a window to get away from me. I doubt he's going to come knocking on my door.

Nathan Petrelli: But if people knew what we were capable of, they would drop a collective brick.
Simone Deveraux: You think they'll burn you at the stake?
Nathan Petrelli: Yeah. Pretty much. Because that's what I would do. I'd round us all up, stick us in a lab on some island in the middle of the ocean.


"Heroes: Chapter Nine 'Brother's Keeper' (#4.10)" (2009/II)
Peter Petrelli: Nathan, this, uh... this idea, this thought that you're...
Nathan Petrelli: Sylar?
Peter Petrelli: Yeah.
Nathan Petrelli: Change of voice, change of face, still him underneath. These hands have killed dozens of people, Pete. Friends of ours. Whoever Nathan Petrelli was, he's gone now. Just some random thoughts in a mass murderer's head.

[last lines]
Nathan Petrelli: To the rest of the world, I'm Nathan Petrelli, Pete. But every time you look at me - the way you're looking at me right now - you're gonna see Sylar. Tell me I'm wrong. Tell me I'm wrong, Pete.


"Heroes: Chapter Eight 'Into Asylum' (#3.21)" (2009/II)
Claire Bennet: You know what? Over the years, I couldn't help but... think about my real dad. Who you were, what you looked like, your job. And then I met you; and you were more amazing than anything I could have ever imagined.
Nathan Petrelli: I mean, it's just a fantasy.
Claire Bennet: No. No, it doesn't have to be! You could do anything you want - you could fly!
Nathan Petrelli: Claire...
Claire Bennet: You're supposed to be Superman.

[Claire puts a batch of banknotes on the table]
Claire Bennet: Voilà!
Nathan Petrelli: Where'd you get that?
Claire Bennet: I sold my kidney. Actually, both of them - twice!


"Heroes: Chapter Twelve 'An Invisible Thread' (#3.25)" (2009/II)
Noah Bennet: I take it the President agreed to it?
Nathan Petrelli: Funding, resources, deniability... I told them I found just the man to head up our new... What were we gonna call it?
Noah Bennet: I always liked "The Company."

Nathan Petrelli: It's a new beginning, mom.


"Heroes: Chapter Twenty-Three 'How to Stop an Exploding Man' (#1.23)" (2007/II)
Nathan Petrelli: You saved the cheerleader, so we could save the world.

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]


"Heroes: Chapter Eleven 'The Eclipse - Part 2' (#3.11)" (2008/II)
[Samedi is about to sell a girl to prostitution]
Nathan Petrelli: I'm not gonna let you do this!
Samedi: You? You are just a man. And I am their god.

Samedi: Some believe that if you know a man's name, you can possess him. Others believe that names grant great strength.
Nathan Petrelli: Is that why you call yourself 'Baron Samedi'? People worship you like a God?
Samedi: Is that why you took the title 'Senator'?


"Heroes: Chapter Fifteen 'Run!' (#1.15)" (2007/II)
[first lines]
Nathan Petrelli: [answering the phone] Hello?
Meredith Gordon: [on the phone] You might not remember me - we haven't spoken in a long time- and I just had... our daughter just found me. Did you hear what I just said? She's alive. We need to talk, Nathan.
Nathan Petrelli: [on the phone] Meredith?
Meredith Gordon: [on the phone] Nathan, we need to talk.
Nathan Petrelli: [on the phone] It's been fourteen years. I went to your funeral.

Nathan Petrelli: I cared about Meredith once. I owe her more than a phone call, I owe them both. Besides I'm this girl's father.
Angela Petrelli: You're a glorified sperm donor. Don't get so attached.
Nathan Petrelli: How can you be so cold?
Angela Petrelli: Because I know you, Nathan. And under that gruff exterior, you're a sap.


"Heroes: Chapter Three 'Building 26' (#3.16)" (2009/II)
Tracy Strauss: We both know what you did.
Nathan Petrelli: What're you talking about?
Tracy Strauss: Broken chain, unlocked door... You wanted me to escape. You know what? Next time I will.

Nathan Petrelli: You let her out, didn't you? You murdered an innocent man.
Danko: There are times in a war when someone has to fall on a grenade.
Nathan Petrelli: He didn't fall. You threw him.
Danko: I saved your ass. This entire project was about to be flushed, and I helped us both out, Petrelli; it needed to be done. I'm sorry that a man had to die.
Nathan Petrelli: Why don't you go apologize to his bloodstain? It's still warm.


"Heroes: Chapter Two 'The Butterfly Effect' (#3.2)" (2008/II)
Tracy Strauss: Do you think that you know me?
Nathan Petrelli: The word 'biblically' comes to mind.

Daniel Linderman: Perhaps there's a reason for that - someone so familiar looking, offering you the chance of a lifetime. You should think about that, Nathan. This is God's plan.
Nathan Petrelli: You don't know the first thing about God's plan.


"Heroes: Chapter Four 'Cold Wars' (#3.17)" (2009/II)
Noah Bennet: You know you're going to be seen as a villain? Locking people away?
Nathan Petrelli: I'll play whatever role I need to.
Noah Bennet: Claire will never look at you the same way again.
Nathan Petrelli: Claire never needs to know a thing.
Noah Bennet: But she will - they all will, and they will blame you. They won't understand.
Nathan Petrelli: I have gone so far off the rails with this, so far around the bend. I nearly killed my own brother. And I just want to have a chance to make things right.

Noah Bennet: I joined the Company for a reason; and that reason doesn't disappear just because your mother decides to turn off the lights.
Nathan Petrelli: I thought you'd enjoy the extra-time with your family.
Noah Bennet: There's only so many crossword puzzles I can do.


"Heroes: Chapter Nine 'Homecoming' (#1.9)" (2006/II)
Nathan Petrelli: Peter's got all these... ideas in his head, delusions of grandeur. He thinks he's supposed to make a difference.
Simone Deveraux: What are you doing? What are you doing? No... No.
[Nathan throws a bucket of paint on Isaac's painting]
Simone Deveraux: No!
Nathan Petrelli: Saving his life. Why, you believe it? "Save the cheerleader, save the world"?
Simone Deveraux: I'm not sure what to believe anymore.
Nathan Petrelli: I am.


"Heroes: Chapter Ten 'Thanksgiving' (#4.11)" (2009/II)
Nathan Petrelli: Is there a problem, Mom? Some family. You look at me, you don't see your son. You see the man who killed your son.
Angela Petrelli: Don't be silly.
Nathan Petrelli: [to Peter] You don't see your brother. Well, that's because I'm not your brother.
Peter Petrelli: Nathan.
Nathan Petrelli: Guess again.
Angela Petrelli: Oh, God. Sylar is in there with you, isn't he?
Nathan Petrelli: We never should have gone to Texas, Pete.


"Heroes: Chapter Three 'Acceptance' (#4.4)" (2009/II)
Nathan Petrelli: Kelly didn't disappear. She died. I was there. What I want to know is why I can't remember anything.
Angela Petrelli: How would I know?
Nathan Petrelli: Because every time there's a secret buried someplace, I find you with a shovel behind your back.
Angela Petrelli: You should write mother's day cards.


"Heroes: Chapter Five 'Fight or Flight' (#2.5)" (2007/II)
Nathan Petrelli: Listen, I have to do this. Let me come with you.
Matt Parkman: Fine. We can probably get there faster. You know, 'cause you can, uh...
[he makes a gesture towards the air]
Nathan Petrelli: I'm not a cargo jet, Parkman.


"Heroes: Chapter Nine 'Turn and Face the Strange' (#3.22)" (2009/II)
Nathan Petrelli: When your grandmother has a dream, it's a good idea to pay attention.


"Heroes: Chapter Four 'The Kindness of Strangers' (#2.4)" (2007/II)
Nathan Petrelli: What do you mean by questioning my mother in a hospital? Any statement she makes is coerced, she's sick.
Matt Parkman: Whether or not, they believe her. But I know she's innocent.
Nathan Petrelli: How can you tell?
Matt Parkman: [looks around, then walks to a more quiet corner to make sure he's not overheard. Nathan follows] The same way I know that you can fly. I can read your mind. Just like I read your mother's. But I can't tell my partner what I know or how I know it.
Nathan Petrelli: Are you reading my mind right now?
Matt Parkman: No.
[pause]
Matt Parkman: Yes. Sorry.


"Heroes: Chapter Six 'Shades of Gray' (#3.19)" (2009/II)
Danko: Bureaucracy, oversight, rules of conduct - none of that applies in my world.
Nathan Petrelli: I don't know what your world is, but it ought to be shut down.


"Heroes: Chapter One 'Four Months Later...' (#2.1)" (2007/II)
Angela Petrelli: You're drunk. Thank God your father isn't here to see you.
Nathan Petrelli: Or you, for that matter.
Angela Petrelli: You killed your brother. Drove Heidi away. Drove your kids away. If you followed our plan - if you'd done what you' were supposed to do, he would be alive now.
Nathan Petrelli: To think I almost listened to you. You're evil, Ma.


"Heroes: Chapter Twenty-Two 'Landslide' (#1.22)" (2007/II)
Hiro Nakamura: You must help or bad future will come!
Nathan Petrelli: Bad future?
Ando Masahashi: Yes! We went there.
[aside]
Ando Masahashi: But I was already... dead.
Hiro Nakamura: You become a bad person, Nathan. But you can come with us now! Help us stop the bomb, together!
Nathan Petrelli: I'm sorry, Hiro. I can't stop it. Nobody can.
[addressed to the crowd]
Nathan Petrelli: A pleasure to see you again. Thanks for your support.
Hiro Nakamura: You already bad guy! You are villain - villain!


"Heroes: Chapter Fourteen 'Distractions' (#1.14)" (2007/II)
Nathan Petrelli: [answering the phone] Hello?
Meredith Gordon: [on the phone] You might not remember me - we haven't spoken in a long time-but... our daughter just found me. Did you hear what I just said? She's alive. We need to talk, Nathan.


"Heroes: Chapter Nine 'It's Coming' (#3.9)" (2008/II)
Nathan Petrelli: [about Arthur] I thought the man was dead. I don't even know what to do with my life, now that he's alive.


"Heroes: Chapter Ten 'The Eclipse Part 1' (#3.10)" (2008/II)
Samedi: We know all about you, Senator Nathan Petrelli. Your father warned us you'd come.
Nathan Petrelli: My father?
Samedi: Yes.
Nathan Petrelli: What did he tell you?
[Samedi knocks him down]
Samedi: He told me to be myself.
