: You're being so nice, I've never been this nice to you, I mean I've been nice but I could be nicer Zach
: Then why don't you?
: I know who I am. I like who I am. I like who you are. I just, I just wish that you liked who you are. Claire Bennet
: I'm finally realizing who my friends really are. That maybe being different isn't the end of the world. It's just who I am. Zach
: Exactly. You've gotta embrace your inner freak. Because the only thing you'll regret is denying who you really are.
] Mohinder Suresh
] 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?
: Everybody who wasn't my friend is now my friend, and everybody who was my friend, isn't. Zach
: Well, it's not a popularity contest. It's an unpopularity contest 'cause you rocked the freak vote. Claire Bennet
: I what? Zach
: Look, everybody who's like Jackie voted for Jackie; and everybody who isn't voted for you. And in this school, the unpopular vastly outnumber the popular.
: What? What's with you? Claire Bennet
: You're being so nice, I've never been this nice to you, I mean... I've been nice but I could be nicer. Zach
: Then why don't you?
: She can call me whatever she wants. I'm not gonna be embarassed by it. I know who I am. I like who I am. I like who you are. I just... I just wish that you liked who you are. Claire Bennet
: I'm finally realizing who my friends really are. And maybe being different isn't the end of the world. That's just who I am. Zach
: Exaclty. You've got to embrace your inner freak. Because the only thing that you'll regret is denying who you really are.
: Zach. Zach
: Hey, this is a public place. Are you sure you can be seen here with me? Claire Bennet
: Why not? Zach
: Right, I forgot. You've been body-snatched. Claire Bennet
: Look, I just want to talk. Zach
: Hey, I'm sorry about Jackie. I know she was your best friend and all. Claire Bennet
: No, I actually discovered that someone else was my best friend. But I lost him too. Zach
: What happened to you at homecoming? Claire Bennet
: I can't remember. Can't remember a lot of things lately. Zach
: Yeah, it's uh... That's funny, 'cause lately I can't remember... Must be something in the water, right? Claire Bennet
: Zach, look at me. Do you feel like we could be friends? Zach
: Us? No. We wouldn't play well together.
: We've been here before. You, me, the video camera. Is it at all familiar? Zach
: What are you doing, auditioning for "America's Next Top Model"? Claire Bennet
: You made that joke the first time. Look, just keep the camera on me, okay? Zach
: Why don't you just use a tripod.
: Hold on a second. I'm sure you told me this before, but, um, why are we videotaping this, whatever this is? Claire Bennet
: Actually, I didn't tell you that before. The first time I did this I did it to show my parents, my real parents. I wanted them to see what I was. I thought they could help me understand. But I don't think I'm ever gonna meet them. They may not even be alive any more. Zach
: So why do you wanna tape it now? Claire Bennet
: For me. So I never forget what I am, no matter what happens to me. Just don't freak out, okay? Zach
: I won't. Claire Bennet
: You said that last time. Zach
: The cameras ready for whatever. Claire Bennet
: Okay, ready. Keep the camera on me. Zach
: What are you doing? Oh my God! Claire!
: [about birth parents
] How am I supposed to ask someone if they're a freak when they're probably just gonna lie about it like I do? Zach
: Why don't you just ask them what happens when they cut themselves? Or you could just cut them and find out. Claire Bennet
: Uh-huh. Probably just think I was all bitter because they gave me away.
: What if your biological parents raised you, though? It'd be an entirely different scenario. Claire Bennet
: What if they can do what I can do? What if they're like me? Zach
: Well, I hope they're not. No offense, but I like - I like that you're the freak. It makes you more... special or whatever. Claire Bennet
: Are you flirting with me? Zach
: No. Believe me, no. Um, look, do you plan on coming out to your parents? I mean the ones who raised you? Claire Bennet
: No. My dad would unspool. He's a really simple guy. He'd never be able to wrap his mind around something like that. It would break him. Zach
: [sing-song voice
] He's gonna find out.
: [when Claire's birth parents arrive
] You sure you don't want me to shove 'em into something on the way out? Claire Bennet
: There was a fire in an apartment house fourteen years ago in Kermit, Texas. Kermit - why does that sound so familiar? Claire Bennet
: 'Cause of the frog?
: You may still have a real family out there. Maybe you've got an aunt or a rich, eccentric uncle. Claire Bennet
: Great, an *uncle*.
: My dad lied to me about my entire life; my biological parents, my ability, you can't just hide things like that! There's got to be something on there. Zach
: If your dad's the guy you're describing I don't think he's gonna keep his secrets on the family computer.
[about Claire's biological mom's trailer
: Nice pinwheel collection.
: [about Meredith
] I always imagined my biological mom living in some... penthouse in New York City... not some trailer park in Kermit. Zach
: So she lives in a trailer. Maybe she likes the open road. Claire Bennet
: That's not what I imagined. Zach
: [to Claire
] Stop imagining. She's right there.
[indicates the trailer in front of them
: [about her biological mother
] I mean, what if she's got burns and scars from the fire. She's supposed to be dead, right? Zach
: So were you, remember? You have that much in common.
[he heads for the car
] Claire Bennet
: [turns around
] Where are you going? Zach
: [holds up his car keys
] I'm getting rid of your exit strategy. You'll be fine. I'll be back in time for fajitas.
: So that's it? You're-you're just gonna go just pump your pom-poms and pretend you're no different than any other girl on the squad? Claire Bennet
: Yes, actually. Zach
: But you are, Claire! You are different. Don't you see that? Don't you see that none of this matters? School spirit doesn't matter. Being-being a-a pretty blonde cheerleader doesn't matter. It's not who you are anymore. Claire Bennet
: Who am I? So what, I can crawl through a woodchipper and live to tell about it. That narrows my choices in life to freak or guinea pig, in most cases both. What's wrong with wanting to be normal? You should try it.
: Claire. What are you doing running off to an away game? That tape with all your attempts at bodily harm is still missing. Claire Bennet
: Yeah, well, if someone finds it, we'll just tell 'em you're some visual effects geek who did it with his computer. Now, can I get back to my life, please?
: You shouldn't feel bad. You did it because you're my friend. Probably the best friend I've ever had. Zach
: You know, I've been your friend for two weeks. Claire Bennet
: I didn't say it wasn't pathetic!
: [to Claire
] Are you on crystal meth or something? 'Cause this is really cracky behavior.
: I'm so depressed. Zach
: What? What are you talking about? Why? I mean - I mean, besides the fact that it was so gross that I almost fudged myself, this is the single coolest thing to happen to this town, in like, a hundred years! Claire Bennet
: Not if nobody finds out, it's not. Zach
: Why'd you want me to tape it? Claire Bennet
: I have my reasons. Zach
: It's not like you're not going to be popular anymore! Claire Bennet
: Popular? Who said anything about being popular? My life as I know it is over, okay? I've got the Bishop game next week, SATs in October, Homecoming's in three weeks from today, and I'm a freak show! Zach
: You're being a little dramatic, don't you think? Claire Bennet
: No! I don't think! I have busted, like, every bone in my body, stabbed myself in the chest, I've shoved a two foot steel rod through my neck, and I don't have a scratch on me!
: Look, you can't say anything. I'm fine. He was drunk and it was an accident. Zach
: Which part was an accident? The rape or the murder? Claire Bennet
: It didn't happen. Zach
: Yeah, because he killed you before he had the chance. Claire Bennet
: I'm alive! Zach
: Yeah, now. But you weren't on the autopsy table. Claire Bennet
: Shhh! Zach
: Look, you said you had a hole in your head. Okay, maybe... maybe when they pulled whatever was in there, it's when you like, rebooted or whatever. Claire Bennet
: I'm not a hard drive. Zach
: No, you're little Miss Miracle Grow. Claire Bennet
: Don't ever call me that again.
: Just give me the damn tape! Lyle Bennet
: I'm gonna put this thing on YouTube - make like a million bucks! Zach
: YouTube's free, you idiot! Claire Bennet
: You're *not* helping. Lyle, *no one* can see what's on that tape. Lyle Bennet
: Are you an alien or something? Is he an alien, too? Zach
: Yeah, yeah. We're gonna - we're gonna anal probe you.
