Scott McCall: This is Malia.
Peter Hale: Beautiful eyes. Did you get them from your father?
Malia: Mother.
Peter Hale: Interesting. Anyway, I'm sure they told you a lot about me.
Malia: The homicidal killing spree came up.
Peter Hale: Well, we're all works in progress.
Malia: Well, when you progress to your next killing spree, why don't you try and make sure they all stay dead?

Peter Hale: Can't someone in this town stay dead?
Malia: I think they were hoping you would.

Peter Hale: I'm sure they've told you a lot about me.
Malia: The homicidal killing spree came up.
Peter Hale: Well, we're all works in progress.

Peter Hale: Did you scratch someone, Scott? Don't worry about it, the claws have to go pretty deep.
Scott McCall: But it's possible. Like if you clawed out someone's throat?
Peter Hale: Well, yeah, it's possible. It's also beyond rare. We're talking one in a...
[Realization hits]
Peter Hale: ... million.

Peter Hale: Quite the elaborate scheme you have here, Kate. Two countries, Aztec temples, Derek returned to a teenager. One that trusted you. One that loved you. All this complication just to gain access to our vault. Just to get your hands on that little piece of junk. Turn it over. Go ahead. There's a scrape on the back where it used to say "Made in China."
Kate Argent: You're lying!
Peter Hale: I admit I have a tendency to exaggerate things. But in this case the truth is so much more fun. Oh, I'm sorry, sweetheart, that little pendant is just a physical object to focus on. It's training wheels. Talia used it to teach Laura. I tried to use it to teach Derek.


"Teen Wolf: Master Plan (#2.12)" (2012)
Isaac Lahey: [about Peter Hale] Who is he?
Scott McCall: That's Peter. Derek's uncle. Little while back, he tried to kill us all. So we set him on fire and Derek slashed his throat.
Peter Hale: Hi.
Isaac Lahey: It's good to know.

Derek Hale: [Peter pulls a case out from under the stairs] What is that? A book?
Peter Hale: No. It's a laptop. What century are you living in?

Peter Hale: I'm gonna go with Scott on this one. I mean, have you seen his mom? She's gorgeous!
Derek Hale, Scott McCall: Shut up!

Derek Hale: [about the creature Jackson is turning into] He's turning into that? *That* has wings!
Peter Hale: Look. Someone actually made an animation of it. Maybe it's less frightening if we...
[Watches]
Peter Hale: Nope.

Peter Hale: Don't feel bad. If she lives, she'll be a werewolf. She'll be incredibly powerful.

Stiles: You turn into a giant monster with red eyes and fangs, and you're *not* the bad guy here?


"Teen Wolf: Chaos Rising (#3.2)" (2013)
Stiles: I can't take waiting around like this, you know? It's nerve-racking. My nerves are racked. They're severely racked. Racked.
Peter Hale: I could beat you unconscious and wake you when it's over.

Stiles: Why wouldn't they chain them up in some underground lair or something? They're an Alpha Pack, right? So shouldn't they have a lair?
Peter Hale: They're were werewolves, not Bond villains.
Stiles: Maybe they're living there. You know? Like, maybe the bank vault reminds them of their little wolf dens.
Peter Hale: Wolf dens?
Stiles: Yeah, wolf dens. Where do you live?
Peter Hale: In an underground network of caves hidden deep in the woods.
Stiles: Whoa, really?
Peter Hale: No, you idiot. In an apartment downtown.

Peter Hale: Do I have to remind you what we're up against here? A pack of alphas. All of them, killers. And if that's not enough to scare your testicles back into your stomach, try to remember that two of them combine to form one giant Alpha. I'm sure Erica and Boyd were sweet kids. They're going to be missed.
Stiles: Can someone kill him again please?

Isaac Lahey: [Talking about Peter] You know Scott doesn't trust him, right? You know, personally, I'd... well, I'd trust Scott.
Derek Hale: Do you trust me?
Isaac Lahey: Yeah. I still don't like him.
Derek Hale: Nobody likes him.
Peter Hale: [Enters the room] Boys. F.Y.I., yes, coming back from the dead has left my abilities somewhat impaired, but the hearing still works. So I hope you're comfortable saying whatever it is that you're feeling straight to my face.
Derek Hale: We don't like you. Now shut up and help us.
Peter Hale: Fair enough.


"Teen Wolf: Lunar Ellipse (#3.12)" (2013)
Derek Hale: Do you want me to run?
Peter Hale: No. I want you to stay and get slaughtered by an alpha with a psychotic foot fetish. Of course I want you to run. Sprint, gallop, leap your way the hell out of this town.

Jennifer Blake: Of course it's you. Everyone else suffers, but somehow you come out on top. And now that Scott's an Alpha, you'll be able to steal it from him. You'll be an Alpha again.
Peter Hale: [Furious] Again? Again? I am the Alpha. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN THE ALPHA!

Peter Hale: The moon is rising, Derek. You drained your battery all the way to the red, And there is a fully charged alpha on her way to rip you limb from limb.
Derek Hale: I'll be fine in a few hours.
Peter Hale: I sincerely hope so, because a few hours is all that you have.


"Teen Wolf: Co-Captain (#1.10)" (2011)
Peter Hale: I think you're getting the wrong impression of us. We really just want to help you reach your full potential.
Scott McCall: By killing my friends.
Peter Hale: Sometimes the people closest to you- can be the ones holding you back the most.
Scott McCall: If they're holding me back from becoming a psychotic nut job like you, I'm okay with that.

Peter Hale: When I was in high school we played basketball. Now there's a real sport.

Peter Hale: You need to understand how much more powerful we are together - You and me and Derek.

Or are you failing history as well?
Scott McCall: I know the Germans lost the war.

Scott McCall: What if this is just another trick?
Peter Hale: When are you people gonna start trusting me?
Scott McCall: [Pointing to the Nogitsune] I meant him.
Peter Hale: Oh.

Peter Hale: What are you doing? And more importantly, why aren't you healing?
Derek Hale: It's from one of their swords. It'll heal.
Peter Hale: By playing chess?
Derek Hale: Back in his room, Stiles had a board with my name on one of the pieces. If this is a game to him, then I need to figure out the plays.
Peter Hale: Not so easy to do when it's a game without rules.
Derek Hale: What does that mean?
Peter Hale: You're dealing with the kind of spirit that's lived too long to play by human rules. It's a fox spirit that chose to become human. And supposedly, that's something they can do only after about 100 years. If a kitsune is an annoying pain in the ass, then a nogitsune, which is a dark kitsune, is a freaking disaster. Besides, chess is Stiles's game. It's not the game of a Japanese fox.


"Teen Wolf: Battlefield (#2.11)" (2012)
Peter Hale: Even someone as burned and dead on the inside as me knows better than to underestimate the simple, yet undeniable power, of human love.

Peter Hale: It's quite a situation you got yourself in here, Derek. I mean, I'm out of commission for a few weeks and suddenly there's lizard people, geriatric psychopaths and you're cooking up werewolves out of every self-esteem deprived adolescent in town.
Derek Hale: What do you want?
Peter Hale: I wanna help, you're my nephew. The only relative that I have left. You know, there's still a lot that I can teach you. Can we just talk?
Derek Hale: Sure. Let's talk!
[Peter goes crashing into the railing of the stairs]

Peter Hale: First of all, I'm not a total psycho. And by the way, you're the one that slashed my throat wide open. But we're all works in progress, right?


"Teen Wolf: Letharia Vulpina (#3.19)" (2014)
Lydia Martin: Why would your sister want to steal a memory from you?
Peter Hale: Well, if I remembered the memory, I might be able to tell you.

Peter Hale: [about Allison] She goes.
Lydia Martin: The last time I was alone with you... I almost bled out on a lacrosse field. She stays.
Peter Hale: Do you actually think I was trying to kill you when I bit you? You were my backup plan, remember? Not to mention, the bite is what brought out your nascent abilities. You think power like that was going to come out on its own? I'm the spark that lit your fire, sweetheart.
Allison Argent: You attacked her and nearly killed her.
Peter Hale: Power doesn't come without a little pain and struggle.

Peter Hale: I can help you focus your hearing.
Lydia Martin: But you want something in return.
Peter Hale: No, I'm dedicating my life to helping out narcissistic teenage girls. Of course I want something in return.


"Teen Wolf: More Bad Than Good (#3.14)" (2014)
Thug: Maybe you need a different method of persuasion? Maybe we cut one of you in half, the other talks?
Peter Hale: I would love to be the first to volunteer, but we really don't know what you're talking about. And honestly, isn't bisecting people with a broad sword a little medieval?
Thug: [laughs] Broad sword? We're not savages.
[Pulls out a chainsaw]

Derek Hale: You're the one who saved Isaac.
Braeden: I'm the one who was hired to save Isaac.

Peter Hale: When did I get this reputation?

Spanish Woman: This one will talk. This one loves the sound of his own voice.
Peter Hale: You should hear me sing.
Spanish Woman: We want to hear you scream.
Peter Hale: No one ever wants to hear me sing.
Spanish Woman: What could we do to persuade you, hmm? Where is the She-Wolf?
[She cuts off one of Peter's fingers]
Spanish Woman: Think about it. I'm only going to ask you nine more times.


"Teen Wolf: Muted (#4.3)" (2014)
Peter Hale: The table's Italian.
Braeden: So are these boots. Are we going to talk interior design and fashion, or are we gonna talk numbers?
Peter Hale: We're hiring you to find Kate, not assassinate the president.
Braeden: I was hired by the Calaveras to find Kate. You're hiring me to find her first.

Peter Hale: If we don't find out, who told Kate about the vault, we don't get those bonds back! What do you think I'm gonna do then, huh? Get a job?


"Teen Wolf: The Overlooked (#3.10)" (2013)

"Teen Wolf: Visionary (#3.8)" (2013)

Peter Hale: Why not? Ennis needed a new member for his pack. Paige was young and strong. Doing a favor for Derek meant Ennis would be in good with Tiala. Back then - everybody wanted to be in good with her.

Peter Hale: Taking an innocent life takes... something from you as well, a bit of your soul... darkening it, dimming the once brilliant, golden yellow to a cold, steel blue... Like mine.


"Teen Wolf: Fireflies (#3.3)" (2013)
Peter Hale: [to Derek] Let Scott deal with it. Let him be the hero of his morally black and white world. The real survivors, you and I, we live in shades of gray. Then again, even if you did kill them, you're still an alpha. You can always make more werewolves.

Derek Hale: Cora's alive.
Peter Hale: So I heard. Let's throw the reunion party when she's not an unstoppable killing machine.


"Teen Wolf: The Benefactor (#4.4)" (2014)
Peter Hale: He said he was after you.
Derek Hale: How does a guy with no mouth say anything?


"Teen Wolf: Orphaned (#4.6)" (2014)
Peter Hale: I suppose you're hiding down here because it'll cover your scent. But I can smell a rat. Even in a sewer. It's getting worse, isn't it? The surges of anger. The loss of control. You know, I used to get angry. As a kid, I would even break my own toys in little fits of rage. And then I asked myself, "Why break your own toys when you can break someone else's?"


"Teen Wolf: Anchors (#3.13)" (2014)
Peter Hale: Why are you looking at me like it's my fault?
Derek Hale: Because it is your fault.

"Teen Wolf: Party Guessed (#2.9)" (2012)

Lydia Martin: Are you real?
Peter Hale: Interestingly, that question can also be answered, not yet.


"Teen Wolf: Frayed (#3.5)" (2013)

Peter Hale: You have something of mine. I'm here to collect it.
Dr. Deaton: Like I said, we're closed.


"Teen Wolf: Restraint (#2.7)" (2012)
Peter Hale: I'm so sorry, Lydia. All of this must be terribly confusing. But at least you know that you're not actually crazy. Well - not completely. There's bound to be some residual effects, but you're a strong girl. Personally I think that you're gonna pull through with a minimal amount of post traumatic stress. And maybe - a few years of profoundly disturbing nightmares. I had a plan, you know. It was a good plan. But if there's one thing that I've learned in life, it's to always have a backup. That would be you. Your immunity makes you a perfect plan b. You wouldn't turn from the bite. You wouldn't die. But you would be able to do - One very important thing. Do you know what that is, Lydia?


"Teen Wolf: Time of Death (#4.8)" (2014)
Peter Hale: Wanna talk about it? See a family counselor?
Malia Tate: There's nothing in there.
Peter Hale: It cost me a lot to get to that file.
Malia Tate: You got ripped off.
