"Heroes: Chapter Eight 'Seven Minutes to Midnight' (#1.8)" (2006/II)
[closing voice over narration]
[a heroin-addled Isaac is frantically painting away at a large canvas]
Mohinder Suresh: You can run far; you can take your small precautions, but have you really gotten away?
[cuts to Isaac's painting of Hiro and Ando standing below and gazing upward at a blood-drenched homecoming banner]
Mohinder Suresh: Can you ever escape?
[dissolves into Clare on the living room floor creating her homecoming banner as her father looks on somberly from his recliner]
Mohinder Suresh: Or is the truth that you do not have the strength or cunning to hide from destiny? But the world is not small, you are...
[scene ends up back into the Burnt Toast diner where Ando is anxiously awaiting the arrival of Hiro. Camera closes in on a picture that is tacked to a bulletin board among a sea of other photos; it is a picture of Hiro and the waitress smiling over her birthday cake]
Mohinder Suresh: And fate can find you anywhere.

[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] The earth is large. Large enough that you think you can hide from anything. From Fate, From God. If only you found a place far enough away. So you run... To the edge of the Earth, where all is safe again. Quiet and Warm. The Solace of salt air. The peace of danger left behind. The luxury of grief. And maybe, for a moment... , you believe you have escaped.

Mira: It's the sort of cutting-edge science we used to talk about late into the night.
Mohinder Suresh: [laughs] The world's worst pillow talk, I'd say.

Mohinder Suresh: It's an odd country, America. Everyone there seems so lonely. Including me. Ah, I'm not sure what I accomplished by going there. Only seeing things I wish I never had.

Mira: I've been promoted at the company. Head of all genetic research - can you imagine?
Mohinder Suresh: Good for you.
Mira: No, good for you.

Mira: We didn't say hello.
Mohinder Suresh: Hello, Mira.
Mira: Hello, Mohinder.

Mohinder Suresh: Who are you? What do you want?

Mrs. Suresh: I know you miss him. And I know you feel guilty, too. Don't.
Mohinder Suresh: I had a dream last night. You and father were talking before he left. In it, you persuaded him to go.
Mrs. Suresh: It's just a dream, Mohinder.
Mohinder Suresh: No; I need to know if it was true.
Mrs. Suresh: Your father and I were married for thirty three years.
Mohinder Suresh: That is not an answer.
Mrs. Suresh: Yes it is; a marriage doesn't last that long without allowing the other person to be who he has to be.

Mohinder Suresh: [to his Mom] In the dream you said that I could never take the place of her. Who did you mean?
Mrs. Suresh: I think its time you knew now that your father's gone. Mohinder, You had a sister.
Mohinder Suresh: A sister?
Mrs. Suresh: Her name was Shanthi. She was five years old when she died, two years after you were born.

Chandra Suresh: The world needs to know my findings. That's all that's important.
Mohinder Suresh: It is one thing to publish a book in the comfort of a university, it is another to leave everything behind. Chasing a theory that is pure fantasy.

"Heroes: Chapter Twenty 'Five Years Gone' (#1.20)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: Hiro Nakamura can stop time. Teleport by folding space. Theoretically, he can fold time as well.
Matt Parkman: So you're saying he's a time traveler?
Mohinder Suresh: Is that any stranger than being able to read someone's mind?
Matt Parkman: Yeeeah. It is.

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".

Matt Parkman: What was the message? Hey, what was the message
Mohinder Suresh: "Save the cheerleader, save the world".

Mohinder Suresh: "Save the cheerleader, save the world". What does that mean?
Hiro Nakamura: How do you know that?
Mohinder Suresh: Five years ago, Peter Petrelli and I were on the subway. He said someone stopped time. That's what you do, Mr. Nakamura. Peter and I were on our way to see Isaac Mendez that day. An artist who can paint the future. A lot of his work is remarkably accurate. Except this.
Hiro Nakamura: Is that a new "Ninth Wonder"?
Mohinder Suresh: The events in this comic. History didn't happen like this. You didn't kill Sylar. You're trying to change the past. Trying to stop Sylar, is that it?
Hiro Nakamura: If you could save millions of lives, wouldn't you?

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.

Hiro Nakamura: [to Mohinder] I must go back to stop explosion. You know, I'm telling truth.
Mohinder Suresh: [to the Haitian] Hold him down.
Hiro Nakamura: [to Mohinder] Please don't do this.
Mohinder Suresh: [to the Haitian] I'm sorry.
[injects the Haitian]

"Heroes: Chapter Fifteen 'Run!' (#1.15)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: Zane Taylor?
Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] Yes. You must be Dr. Suresh. Come on in. Can I get you some tea?
Mohinder Suresh: Sorry it took me so long to get here.
Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] No, it's no problem. Is earl grey okay?
Mohinder Suresh: Yes, it ought to be fine. You umm sounded rather alarmed on the phone. You seemed to have calmed down some.
Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] I had a kind of epiphany about it this morning.

Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] All this time I was trying to fight it, deny it. But there is no shame in having this ability, is there?
Mohinder Suresh: None whatsoever, it would be like denying you have brown eyes.
Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] Right.

Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] You might wanna step back. That looks like a nice jacket.
[liquefies toaster]
Mohinder Suresh: My God!
Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] You wanna see it again?

Mohinder Suresh: There are others out there like you.
Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor ] Really? How many others?
Mohinder Suresh: Dozens. And those are just the ones I know about it. With more time and research I could find hundreds, thousands. But you're the first one who's returned my phone calls. But I am going to find them. All of them.
Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] I could go with you. I could help you.

Mohinder Suresh: [narrating voice-over] To survive in this world, we hold close to us those people on whom we depend. We trust in them our hopes, our fears.

Mohinder Suresh: [narrating voice-over] But what happens when trust is lost? Where do we run when things we believe in vanish before our eyes?

[last lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [narrating voice-over] When all seems lost, the future unknowable, our very existence in peril...
Niki Sanders: [on the phone] Yeah, I remember him... No problem... Consider it done.
Mohinder Suresh: [narrating voice-over] ... all we can do... is run.

"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.

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.

[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] Sometimes questions are more powerful than answers. How is this happening? What are they? Why them and not others? Why now? What does it all mean?

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.

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.
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 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.

Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] You've no idea how alone I used to feel. How insignificant. You have given me hope.
Mohinder Suresh: Hope is great. We need caffeine!

Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] To new friends.
[takes a sip from the cup]
Sylar: This is good. What is it?
Mohinder Suresh: Chai. It's a special blend my father brought from India.
Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] Who are we going to call next?
Mohinder Suresh: No one. I already have you, Mr. Sylar.
[Sylar passes out]

Mohinder Suresh: [to Sylar] You're a parasite. You killed my Father and fed off his work.

Mohinder Suresh: [to Sylar] There's only one thing to do with a parasite. Kill it before it kills again.

Sylar: Give me that damn list so I can sink my teeth in! I'm a natural progression of the species. Evolution is a part of nature and nature kills. Simple, right?
Mohinder Suresh: What you've done isn't evolution, it's murder. What I am doing - is revenge. Now I can fulfill my duty as a son.

"Heroes: Chapter One 'Genesis' (#1.1)" (2006/II)
Mohinder Suresh: This quest. This need to solve life's mysteries. In the end, what does it matter when the human heart can only find meaning in the smallest of moments? They're here. Among us. In the shadows. In the light. Everywhere. Do they even know yet?

Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] Where does it come from, this quest? This need to solve life's mysteries with the simplest of questions can never be answered. Why are we here? What is the soul? Why do we dream? Perhaps we'd be better off not looking at all - not delving, not yearning. That's not human nature, not the human heart. That is not why we are here.

Mohinder Suresh: Man is a narcissistic species by nature. We have colonized the four corners of our tiny planet. But we are not the pinnacle of so-called evolution. That honor belongs to the lowly cockroach. Capable of living for months without food. Remaining alive headless for weeks at a time. Resistant to radiation. If God has indeed created Himself in His own image, then I submit to you that God is a cockroach. They say that man uses only a tenth of his brain power. Another percent, and we might actually be worthy of God's image. Unless, of course, that day has already arrived. The Human Genome Project has discovered that tiny variations in man's genetic code are taking place at increasingly rapid rates. Teleportation, levitation, tissue re-generation. Is this outside the realm of possibility? Or is man entering a new gateway to evolution? Is he finally standing at the threshold to true human potential?

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.

Mohinder Suresh: [about his father] I spoke to him two days ago. He was convinced someone was following him, trying to steal his research. He died because of his theories.

"Heroes: Chapter Nine 'Homecoming' (#1.9)" (2006/II)
Mohinder Suresh: He did it, you know. He discovered them. His theory was right.
Mrs. Suresh: And that is good news, yes?
Mohinder Suresh: Why didn't he tell me?
Mrs. Suresh: He wanted you to live your own life. So, now that you know about them, what will you do?
Mohinder Suresh: Find them, tell them who they are if they don't already know, warn them of the dangers they face.
Mrs. Suresh: And who will protect *you*?

[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] We are, if anything, creatures of habit - drawn to the safety and comfort of the familiar.
Zach: Do they actually believe that grain is a vegetable?
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] But what happens when the familiar becomes unsafe, when the fear that we have been desperately trying to avoid, finds us where we live?

Mohinder Suresh: You came to me in my dream last night.
Sanjog Iyer: I don't come to anyone. They come to me.
Mohinder Suresh: Why? Why do they come to you?
Sanjog Iyer: They have questions that need answers.
Mohinder Suresh: I am not sure that I have a question.
Sanjog Iyer: [chuckles] Yes. You do.
Mohinder Suresh: I have two paths in front of me. I need to know which one to take. Which one's my destiny?
Sanjog Iyer: You already have the answer that you seek.
Mohinder Suresh: What is it? What's my answer?

Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] We are all, at our cores, the sum of our fears. To embrace destiny, we must, inevitably, face those fears and conquer them. Whether they come from the familiar... or the unknown.

"Heroes: Chapter Twenty-One 'The Hard Part' (#1.21)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: [answering the phone] Hello?
Sylar: [on the phone] Mohinder, I need your help.
Mohinder Suresh: [on the phone] Sylar?
Sylar: [on the phone] I think I'm gonna do something bad.
Mohinder Suresh: [on the phone] You're a murderer. You don't get the luxury of regret.
Sylar: [on the phone] You don't understand. I think I'm gonna kill a lot more people - a lot more. I understood it before, the killing. I had a reason. To take what others didn't deserve. It was natural selection.
Mohinder Suresh: [on the phone] What are you talking about?
Sylar: [on the phone] An apocalypse, a massacre. Half the city gone in an instant. They mean nothing. They're innocent. There's no gain, so why would I do it? What possible reason could I have for killing so many?
Mohinder Suresh: [on the phone] Wait, listen. You don't have to. If you're truly repentant about what you've done, turn yourself in.
Sylar: [on the phone] I can hear you dialing nine one one. It was a mistake to call.
Mohinder Suresh: [on the phone] No, wait. Sylar? Sylar?

Thompson: It's good to see you again, Professor. So... Have you thought about my offer? Are you ready to come to work for us?
Mohinder Suresh: [about the company] As far as I can tell, you're all a bunch of untrustworthy gundas!
Thompson: Is that a no?
Mohinder Suresh: No, I'm not going to work for you. You're going to work for me. You're going to show me everything you do, everything you know. And I'm going to use it to help me stop Sylar.

Mohinder Suresh: You can stop the boogieman. You. I hear you have an amazing ability.
Molly Walker: It's not so amazing. They ask me where people are and I find them.
Mohinder Suresh: You find them? What? Anywhere in the world?
Molly Walker: Yeah. I just think about them and then I know where they are. It doesn't work right now.
Mohinder Suresh: Well that is a very special ability, Molly. Because the Boogieman, he likes to hide. And if you could tell us where he is, we can make sure he never comes back again.

Thompson: [to Mohinder] There's someone you need to meet. Molly Walker. Does the name ring nay bells?
Mohinder Suresh: Yeah. She was on my Father's list.
Thompson: That's right. Your Father led Sylar right to her. He slaughtered her parents. Then attacked her.
Mohinder Suresh: How did she survive?
Thompson: Luckily we got to her.

"Heroes: Chapter Nineteen '.07%' (#1.19)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: You're not the one I called.
Thompson: Glasses? Tall fella? He's no longer with the Company.

Thompson: You know, you've been going about this all wrong, Professor. Trying to take on the science and the killer all in your home. What you're dealing with no man should face without friends. Now, we can provide you with the resources...
Mohinder Suresh: I didn't call about my research. The man who killed my Father and Peter Petrelli, he's still out there. That takes precedence over any academics. That sort if danger should be stopped.
Thompson: I can assure you we have similar priorities. The best way to stop Sylar is for us to work together.

[first lines]
Mr. Linderman: [voice over narration] People think I collect art. What I really collect are lives fixed in paint. A perfect moment capturing an entire existence, made immortal.
Mohinder Suresh: What you've done isn't evolution, it's murder. What I am doing - is revenge.
Mr. Linderman: [voice over narration] A monster's fight to survive... and live to kill again. A mother willing to fracture her own soul to protect her child.
D.L. Hawkins: Don't lie to me anymore. You told me she was gone now. Which one of you is in control. Niki? Jessica?
Niki Sanders: I'm not so sure.
Mr. Linderman: [voice over narration] Youth's struggle for innocence, despite life's cruelty.
Claire Bennet: Who are you?
Angela Petrelli: I'm your grandmother.

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.

"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.

[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] When we embrace what lies within, our potential has no limit. The future is filled with promise; the present rife with expectation. When we deny our instinct, and struggle against our deepest urges, uncertainty begins. Where does this path lead? When will the changes end? Is this transformation a gift or a curse? For those who fear what lies ahead, the most important question of all - can we ever really change what we are?

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?

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 Two 'Don't Look Back' (#1.2)" (2006/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: We all imagine ourselves the agents of our destiny, capable of determining our own fate. But have we truly any choice in when we rise, or when we fall, or does a force larger than ourselves bid us our direction? Is it evolution that takes us by the hand, does science point our way, or is it God who intervenes keeping us safe?

Mohinder Suresh: I suppose the cockroaches are the least of my problems.
Exterminator: [pointing a gun at Mohinder] Yeah, no argument there.

Eden McCain: He told me he was being watched. I thought that he was just eccentric...
Mohinder Suresh: I like that you didn't use the word 'paranoid'.

[last lines]
Mohinder Suresh: For all his bluster, it is the sad problems of man that he cannot choose his triumph. He can only choose how he will stand when the call of destiny comes, hoping that he'll have the courage to answer.

"Heroes: Chapter Ten '1961' (#3.23)" (2009/II)
Mohinder Suresh: Fifty years ago, my father was a doctor here. I came to find out what he was doing. Now I'm not so sure I wanna know.

Mohinder Suresh: So what? My father was Dr. Mengele?
Noah Bennet: You don't know what happened here.
Mohinder Suresh: It's hard to ignore facts.
Noah Bennet: Which are what?
Mohinder Suresh: He worked here. Everyone died, he survived. The most obvious answer is usually the right one.

Mohinder Suresh: The storm covered the graves, they're all buried. Maybe it should remain that way.

"Heroes: Chapter Three 'One Giant Leap' (#1.3)" (2006/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] When evolution selects its agents, it does so at a cost. It makes demands in exchange for singularity. And you may be asked to do something against your very nature. Suddenly, the change in your life that should have been wonderful, comes as a betrayal. It may seem cruel, but the goal is nothing short of self-preservation. Survival.

Mohinder Suresh: My father only cared about proving he was right. He left his country, his family, chasing this insanity. And now I'm wasting my life trying to prove him sane.

[last lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] This force, evolution, is not sentimental. Like the earth itself, it knows only the hard facts of life's struggle with death. All you can do is hope and trust that when you have served its needs faithfully, there may still remain some glimmer of the life you once knew.
Claire Bennet: Holy sh...

"Heroes: Chapter Sixteen 'Unexpected' (#1.16)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: I left you several messages this week.
Dale Smither: Yeah I got 'em.
Mohinder Suresh: I believe I can help with what's happening to you. I'm sure you've got lots of questions.
Dale Smither: Yeah, only one - how did you find me?

Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] What happened to this... Sylar?
Mohinder Suresh: I'm not sure...
Sylar: [pretending to be Zane Taylor] He just got away with killing your dad?
Mohinder Suresh: He's gone, locked away.

Mohinder Suresh: Sorry, it must be quite a burden.
Dale Smither: A burden? Hell no, it was the best damn thing that ever happened to me. Well now that I've learned to control it I'm like Superman or something.

"Heroes: Chapter Five 'Hiros' (#1.5)" (2006/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] When a change comes, some species feel the urge to migrate. They call it zugunruhe. A pull of the soul to a far-off place. Following a scent in the wind, a star in the sky. The ancient message comes, calling the kindred to take flight and gather together. Only then can they hope to survive the cruel season to come.

Mohinder Suresh: There are no answers. Go home, Peter.

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 Twelve 'An Invisible Thread' (#3.25)" (2009/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice-over] There are nearly seven billion people on this planet. Each one unique, different. What are the chances of that? And why? Is it simply biology, physiology that determines this diversity? A collection of thoughts, memories, experiences that carve out our own special place? Or is it something more than this? Perhaps there's a master plan that drives the randomness of creation, something unknowable that dwells in the soul, and presents each one of us with a unique set of challenges, that will help us discover who we really are.

Mohinder Suresh: [voice-over] We are all connected, joined together by an invisible thread, infinite in its potential and fragile in its design. Yet while connected, we are also merely individuals, empty vessels to be filled with infinite possibilities, an assortment of thoughts, beliefs, a collection of disjointed memories and experiences... Can I be me without these? Can you be you?

[last lines of Volume IV]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice-over] And if this invisible thread that holds us together were to sever, to cease, what then? What would become of billions of lone, disconnected souls? Therein lies the great quest of our lives, to find, to connect, to hold on. For when our hearts are pure, and our thoughts in line, we are all truly one, capable of repairing our fragile world, and creating a universe of infinite possibilities.

"Heroes: Chapter Six 'Better Halves' (#1.6)" (2006/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] Evolution is an imperfect, and often violent process. A battle between what exists and what is yet to be born. In the midst of these birth pains, morality loses it's meaning. The question of good and evil, reduced to one simple choice: Survive? Or perish?

Eden McCain: I guess the flying Petrelli didn't fly.
Mohinder Suresh: We were on the train together, and suddenly he started carrying on about a mysterious traveler who stopped time and told him to save a cheerleader. It was all very fascinating. I should write a paper on the experience.
Eden McCain: Maybe you provoked him with sarcasm.

[last lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] Evolution is an imperfect, and often violent process. Morality loses it's meaning. The question of good and evil, reduced to one simple choice: Survive? Or perish?

"Heroes: Chapter Ten 'Six Months Ago' (#1.10)" (2006/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [narrating voice over] To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose. The Earth spins at a thousand miles an hour as we desperately try to keep from being thrown off. Like the first blush in winter, that signals a great migration. Was there any warning of their arrival? A sign, a single event that set this chain into motion? Was it a whisper in God's ear? Survive. Adapt. Escape. And if we could mark that single moment in time, that first hint of the prophecy of approaching danger... would we have done anything differently? Could it have been stopped? Or was the die long ago cast? And if we could go back, alter its course, stop it from happening... would we?

Mohinder Suresh: [narrating voiceover] This list. You found them. These people, their future is written on their D.N.A. Just as the past, it seems, is written in stone.
Claire Bennet: [to Mr. Bennett] I have something I have to tell you.
Mohinder Suresh: [narrating voiceover] Was the die cast from the very beginning? Or is it in our own hands to alter the course of destiny? Of all our abilities, this free will that truly makes us unique. With it, we have a tiny, but potent, chance to deny fate. And only with it can we find our way back to being human.

"Heroes: Chapter Seven 'Out of Time' (#2.7)" (2007/II)
Niki Sanders: You don't trust Bob, do you?
Mohinder Suresh: Did he put you up to this?
Niki Sanders: I put me up to this; I wanna hear your side.
Mohinder Suresh: Bob is morally grey at best. And the virus? Toying with a death sentence.
Niki Sanders: You have the cure. No one dies.
Mohinder Suresh: Just because he has a safety net doesn't make it ethical.

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 Five 'Fight or Flight' (#2.5)" (2007/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: When confronted by our worst nightmares, the choices are few. Fight - or flight? We hope to find the strength to stand against our fears. But sometimes, despite ourselves, we run. What if the nightmare gives chase? Where can we hide then?

Mohinder Suresh: Molly won't last like this. They are the only people who can understand what's happening to her.
Noah Bennet: Don't do this. The moment you trust them with what you care about most, they'll have you. Don't forget whose side you're on.
Mohinder Suresh: I'm on her side.

"Heroes: Chapter Eleven 'The Eclipse - Part 2' (#3.11)" (2008/II)
Arthur Petrelli: I think this eclipse showed us all exactly who we are - desperate, angry, and weak. Are you ready to get back to work?
Mohinder Suresh: [showing signs of re-transformation] Look at me. Where else could I go?
Arthur Petrelli: We'll find a cure. But that monster inside of you - that's something you're gonna have to take care of all by yourself.

[Suresh prepares an injection for Flint]
Flint Gordon: Is this going to give me my powers back?
Mohinder Suresh: It'll help track the changes your body's going through.
Flint Gordon: You really think I'm that kind of stupid, Doc?
Mohinder Suresh: Honestly? Yeah, I did.
[takes the microscope and slams it over Flint's head]

"Heroes: Chapter Four 'I Am Become Death' (#3.4)" (2008/II)
Neighbor: You stuck your nose where it didn't belong.
Mohinder Suresh: So did you.

Mohinder Suresh: The formula is transforming me. And I fear... I fear what I'm becoming.

"Heroes: Chapter Fourteen 'Close to You' (#4.15)" (2010/II)
Mohinder Suresh: Perfect. One who can't walk, one who can't talk.
[referring to Ando and Hiro]

[Mohinder has suggested that Ando cure Hiro with his red lightning]
Ando Masahashi: Look, Hiro once saw a future where I, I killed him with my red lightning.
Mohinder Suresh: Was it in Florida?
Ando Masahashi: Japan.
Mohinder Suresh: Then we're good to go.

"Heroes: Chapter Seven 'Eris Quod Sum' (#3.7)" (2008/II)
[Arthur stops Suresh beating up Sylar]
Mohinder Suresh: Do you know who this man is? Do you have any idea how many innocent people he's killed?
Arthur Petrelli: I do. But he's also my son. And I've been waiting for him for a long time.

Arthur Petrelli: I'm Arthur Petrelli.
Mohinder Suresh: Everyone thinks you're dead.
Arthur Petrelli: That was the idea.
Mohinder Suresh: What could possibly drive a father to put his children through such grief?
Arthur Petrelli: Have you met their mother?

"Heroes: Chapter Nine: Cautionary Tales (#2.9)" (2007/II)
Elle Bishop: Do you know what happens when you change your plans mid-stream?
Mohinder Suresh: No.
Elle Bishop: Neither do I. Because we don't do it.

Mohinder Suresh: I'm here to ask you to give us Claire. We need her blood.
Noah Bennet: You've gone native! Are you kidding me?
Mohinder Suresh: She'll be returned to you safe - unharmed. You have my word.
Noah Bennet: No offence, Mohinder, but your word isn't what it used to be.
Mohinder Suresh: Claire is very important to the work we're doing. She can save lives.
Noah Bennet: "The work we're doing." You sound like me ten years ago. This is what they do; they indoctrinate you. I couldn't have been more clear about this when you agreed to go in.

"Heroes: Chapter Seven 'Nothing to Hide' (#1.7)" (2006/II)
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] You do not choose your destiny. It chooses you. And those who knew you before Fate took you by the hand cannot understand the depth of the changes inside.

[last lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] They cannot fathom how much you stand to lose in failure.
Niki Sanders: Micah?
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over] That you are the instrument of a flawless design. And all of life may hang in the balance. The hero learns quickly who can comprehend and who merely stands in your way.

"Heroes: Chapter Two 'Lizards' (#2.2)" (2007/II)
The Haitian: You work for people?
Mohinder Suresh: A company.
The Haitian: Of course. There's always a company!

The Haitian: God gave me a power. I abused his gift, so he took it away. Now I suffer his judgment.
Mohinder Suresh: Then perhaps we should leave it to God to decide. Chances are you carry one of a hundred viruses I can do nothing about. If you somehow carry this one virus, there is only one cure: a distillation of my own blood. And I was guided to you. Surely that's a sign? Just the same as your suffering.
The Haitian: The sign of what?
Mohinder Suresh: That God isn't quite done with you yet. So, my friend - shall we see if He still offers redemption?

"Heroes: Chapter Three 'Kindred' (#2.3)" (2007/II)
Matt Parkman: I know you think you can beat them at their own game... Mohinder, no offence - you're a professor, you're not 007.
Mohinder Suresh: I told myself I would do whatever it took to take down the Company. That's how I can help Molly.
Matt Parkman: You wanna help Molly? Don't die on her!

Bob Bishop: Our people have been instructed to keep a close watch on you, to anticipate your every need.
Mohinder Suresh: That is very generous of you, but really, I prefer to work on my own.
Bob Bishop: Supervision is in your best interest - and in ours. You're part of the family now.

"Heroes: Chapter Nine 'It's Coming' (#3.9)" (2008/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] When the moon passes between the sun and the Earth, strange fascination takes root in the heart. And suddenly, anything is possible. Its power is undeniable; its beauty mesmerizing; its lure biblical; its meaning unknowable. And as quickly as it comes, it disappears, leaving us to dwell on our own insignificance, in the face of God.

Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] It starts with light, and it ends with light. And in between, there is darkness. Nothing there is beyond hope; nothing that can be sworn impossible; nothing left unimagined, since Zeus, father of the Olympians, made night from midday, hiding the light of the shining sun, and raining dark fear down upon men.

"Heroes: Chapter Ten 'Truth & Consequences' (#2.10)" (2007/II)
Bob Bishop: [on strain 138] This strain is locked safely away in our facility in Texas, and I can assure you, Doctor, this company is vigilant about security.
Mohinder Suresh: Really? For weeks I operated as a spy within your ranks undetected. God knows what someone with experience and ill intend could achieve.

"Heroes: Chapter Two 'Trust and Blood' (#3.15)" (2009/II)
Mohinder Suresh: When did you learn to draw?
Matt Parkman: I didn't. It just happened.

"Heroes: Chapter Nine 'Turn and Face the Strange' (#3.22)" (2009/II)
Mohinder Suresh: [voice-over] It is our nature to protect our children - for each generation to pass on their cautionary tales to the next. So it is with the myth of Icarus: the legend of a boy who fashioned wings from feathers and wax, daring to fly into the heavens. His father was fearful, and warned Icarus to be careful, begging him not to tempt fate by flying too close to the sun. But in the end, the boy couldn't resist. His wax and wings melted from the sun's rays, and he plunged... to his death.

"Heroes: Chapter Twenty-Three 'How to Stop an Exploding Man' (#1.23)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: [narrating] We dream of hope. We dream of change. Of fire, of love, of death. And then it happens. The dream becomes real. And the answer to this quest, this need to solve life's mysteries finally shows itself. Like the glowing light of a new dawn.
Mohinder Suresh: [other people speaking, then narration continues]
[last lines]
Mohinder Suresh: So much struggle for meaning, for purpose. And in the end, we find it only in each other. Our shared experience of the fantastic. And the mundane. The simple human need to find a kindred, to connect. And to know in our hearts... that we are not alone.

"Heroes: Chapter Twelve 'Godsend' (#1.12)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover at the end of the episode] In the beginning, there was discovery, a confusion of elements, a first snowfall of impossible change. Old lives undone, left behind, strange faces made familiar, new nightmares to challenge sleep, new friends to feel safe with. Only then comes control, the need to impose order onto chaos through determination, through study, through struggle...
D.L. Hawkins: She's gonna be okay. You know that, right?
Micah Sanders: You'd tell me the truth, right?
Mohinder Suresh: [voice over narration] All in defiance of a thundering truth. They're here, and the earth shudders underfoot.

"Heroes: Chapter Twelve 'Our Father' (#3.12)" (2008/II)
[last lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [after injecting the marine with the ability serum and the marine's initial reaction] How do you feel?
[the marine gets up, pulls the chair out of its fastening and throws it through the glass panel and into the opposite wall, where it remains stuck]
Marine: I feel good!

"Heroes: Chapter Eleven 'I Am Sylar' (#3.24)" (2009/II)
Mohinder Suresh: [voice-over] For every being cursed with self-awareness, there remains the unanswerable question: 'Who am I?' We struggle to find meaningful connections to one another. We are the caring friend, the loving father, the doting mother, the protected child. We fight and we love, in the hope that somehow, together, we can understand our significance in the universe. But in the end, no one can share our burden. Each of us alone must answer the question: Who am I? What does it mean to be alive? And in the vast infinity of time, how do I matter?

"Heroes: Chapter Six 'The Line' (#2.6)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: [on treating Monica with a refined vaccine] You're just going to inject her without her consent?
Bob Bishop: No, Dr. Suresh. You are.

"Heroes: Chapter Eight 'Four Months Ago...' (#2.8)" (2007/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice-over] Is it man's ability to remember that sets us apart? We are the only species concerned with the past. Our memories give us voice, and bear witness to history, so that others might learn - so they might celebrate our triumphs, and be warned of our failures.

"Heroes: Chapter Thirteen 'Dual' (#3.13)" (2008/II)
[last lines of Volume 3]
Mohinder Suresh: There is good, and there is evil, right and wrong, heroes and villains. And if we're blessed with wisdom, then there are glimpses between the cracks of each, where light streams through. We wait in silence for these times, when sense can be made; when meaningless existence comes into focus and our purpose presents itself. And if we have the strength to be honest, then what we find there, staring back at us, is our own reflection, bearing witness to the duality of life: that each one of us is capable of both the dark and the light, of good and evil, of either, of all. And destiny, while marching ever in our direction, can be re-routed by the choices we make, by the love we hold onto, and the promises we keep.

"Heroes: Chapter Four 'The Kindness of Strangers' (#2.4)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: So, this is all about helping Molly? To me it sounds like a thirteen-year-old boy trying to make his daddy pay for leaving him!

"Heroes: Chapter Six 'Shades of Gray' (#3.19)" (2009/II)
[last lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice-over] Generations unfold, father to son, mother to daughter. Where one leaves off, the other follows, destined to repeat each other's mistakes, each other's triumphs. For how do we see the world, if not through their lens? The same fears, same desires - do we see them as an example to follow? Or as a warning of what to avoid? Choosing to live as they have, simply because it's what we know, or driven to create our own identity? And what happens if we find them to be a disappointment? Can we replace them? Our mothers, our fathers? Or will destiny find a way to drive us back, back to the familiar comforts of home?

"Heroes: Chapter Eleven 'Powerless' (#2.11)" (2007/II)
Elle Bishop: Sylar's gone. My dad's gonna kill me!
Mohinder Suresh: I doubt that very much. If you hadn't arrived, Sylar would have slaughtered us all. We owe you our lives.
Elle Bishop: Really? Cool...

"Heroes: Chapter Eight 'Villains' (#3.8)" (2008/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: A child is born to innocence; a child is drawn towards good. Why then do so many among us go so horribly wrong? -... - What makes some walk the path of darkness, while others choose the light? Is it will? Is it destiny? Can we ever hope to understand the force that shapes the soul? -... - To fight evil, one must know evil. One must journey back through time, and find that fork in the road where heroes turn one way and villains turn another.

"Heroes: Chapter One 'Four Months Later...' (#2.1)" (2007/II)
Mohinder Suresh: The sun rises on a new dawn, yet few of us realize the debt we ow to those responsible for this, to those that dwell among us, anonymous, seemingly ordinary, whom destiny brought together to repair, to heal, to save us from ourselves.

"Heroes: Chapter Three 'One of Us, One of Them' (#3.3)" (2008/II)
Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] In the ongoing search for self, there are days when we learn something genuinely new. Something uncovered, hidden... that we never knew was there. Something that surprises us. And on that day of self discovery, a question remains: what kind of person are we? Does the hero or the villain inside us win the day?

"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.

"Heroes: Chapter Six 'Dying of the Light' (#3.6)" (2008/II)
Daphne Millbrook: You know a lot about people like me. That's why they sent me to you.
Mohinder Suresh: And what do they want with me?
Daphne Millbrook: Access to your research, your database, contacts...
Mohinder Suresh: Why on Earth would I give them that?
Daphne Millbrook: It's not part of my job description; all I know is that they've already figured out how to do the thing that you're trying to do - to give people abilities... They need your help, you need theirs...
Mohinder Suresh: Help to do what?
Daphne Millbrook: [shrugs] Save the world...

"Heroes: Chapter Four 'Cold Wars' (#3.17)" (2009/II)
Matt Parkman: You think you deserve this, to be hunted, after all that you've done.
Mohinder Suresh: You're reading *my* mind?
Matt Parkman: I don't have to read your mind. You're an open book!

"Heroes: Chapter Twelve 'Upon This Rock' (#4.13)" (2010/II)
[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: [voice-over] There are many ways to define our fragile existence, many ways to give it meaning. - But it is our memories that shape its purpose and give it context. The private assortment of images, fears, loves, regrets; and we alone choose the importance of each... building our own unique histories, one memory at a time... hoping the ones we choose to remember don't betray or trap us. For it is the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, the good with the evil. - This is what separates us, what makes us human - and in the end, what we must fight to hold on to.
