"No Ordinary Family: No Ordinary Beginning (#1.20)" (2011)
Helen Burton: [pointing gun at Daphne] I'm running out of patience, J.J.
J.J. Powell: I told you everything I know! I swear!
Helen Burton: And somehow I still don't believe you.
Daphne Powell: J.J., please!
J.J. Powell: I'm sorry. I... I just can't think, okay? Stress overstimulates the hippocampus. My glucocorticoid receptors haven't been this saturated since... since the plane crash. Oh, my God. Look, I know why our powers are permanent. Please, just let my family go and I'll tell you everything you wanna know. I promise.
Helen Burton: J.J., I will. I will let them all go.
J.J. Powell: Okay, you've been mixing the trilsettum with epinephrine - synthetic adrenaline - but what you needed was real adrenaline. Now, the serum wasn't wrong, the circumstances were. Look, in moments of extreme stress, like life and death, like a plane crash, the receptors in the hippo campus are wide open, and the trilsettum can be absorbed enough for its effects to become permanent. So please...
Helen Burton: Thank you, J.J. You have been most helpful.
[hands gun over to guard]
Helen Burton: Give me ten seconds, then put a bullet in each of them.

Helen Burton: Feeling unwell, Dayton?
Dr. Dayton King: Madam Chairman, I-I just seem to be fighting something.
Helen Burton: Yes, I believe it's called obsolescence, a battle which you appear to have lost. Key card, please.

Helen Burton: If I had time, I would wait for than little twit your son knocked up to give birth. A baby born with trilsettum in its D.N.A. would provide all the answers we need to create permanence, but I dislike both children and being patient; so, I have a backup plan.
Dr. Dayton King: And what is that?
Helen Burton: I'm afraid that information can only be shared with people who still work here, but I assure you, my methods will be far less delicate than yours.


"No Ordinary Family: No Ordinary Future (#1.19)" (2011)
Helen Burton: You've been through quite an adventure.
Victoria Morrow: Where am I?
Helen Burton: Well, you were dead, or very close to it, and I brought you back.
Victoria Morrow: That's impossible.
Helen Burton: Not impossible, just very, very difficult.

Victoria Morrow: You were right. Katie Andrews is pregnant.
Helen Burton: Of course I'm right.
Victoria Morrow: [handing over a folder] The results of the amniocentesis.
Helen Burton: [reading] This is extraordinary. Trilsettum is fully integrated with the baby's D.N.A. Even in this embryonic phase, replicating cells are superhuman. We need this baby, and you're going to bring it to us.
Victoria Morrow: I-I can't do that.
Helen Burton: It's no secret how deeply you feel for this child's father. Who better to raise this very special offspring than a very special woman like yourself?
Victoria Morrow: But what about Katie Andrews?
Helen Burton: As soon as she's delivered the child, she's of no further use. You know how I feel about useless things. Congratulations. You're going to make a wonderful mother.
