Quotes

Claude: I spend a lot a time moving around people's homes, their bedrooms. You get to know people if you see them when they think they're alone you see them for what they truly are: Selfish, Deceitful... and Gassy.

Peter Petrelli: So what, is that your big truth about the world?

Claude: The sooner you learn it, the sooner we get that collar off your neck.

Claude: Everyone's like the rest, that's why they're the rest.

[pause]

Claude: Fine, let's go and see what your girl's up to, then maybe we can clear your head.

Peter Petrelli: You threw me off of a thirty-story building! If I didn't regenerate, I would be dead!

Sandra Bennet: [to Sylar, then distracted by Mr. Muggles] It is so funny how all y'all call him "Mr. Bennet" over there. I've always just known him as... -

[first lines]

Peter Petrelli: I don't see how petty theft is part of my training.

Claude: There's a lot you don't see. You've no idea how to use these gifts of yours properly.

Peter Petrelli: Yeah, and you know.

Claude: Right now your ability only shows up as a reflex, automatic, like swallowing. That's a dog's trick. Making it a conscious choice, using it. That's what makes you more than poodle.

Peter Petrelli: Is insulting me really going to help me learn to do this?

Claude: Listen you're the one who is a bomb threatening to go off and blow up me and everyone else in this city unless I can get you housebroken.

Sandra Bennet: You're asking my permission to skip school?

Claire Bennet: No, if I wanted to skip school I'd check into homeroom and sneak out Miss Robert's window. But you always trust honesty, so I'm being honest.

Hiro Nakamura: [in Japanese] Father, I... I am on an important mission.

Hiro Nakamura: [in Japanese] You are only on a plane home. You will return to Yamagato Industries. That is what is important.

Hiro Nakamura: [in Japanese] My job was meaningless. I worked in a cubicle!

Kaito Nakamura: [in Japanese] Hmm? I only put you at the bottom so you would reach for the top. Perhaps I was too strict. When you return I will make you an Executive Vice President. On your way to taking my place as C.E.O. You are my only son, Hiro. This is your destiny.

Hiro Nakamura: [in Japanese] Father. I believe I have... a different destiny.

Kaito Nakamura: [in Japanese] And what is that?

Hiro Nakamura: [in Japanese] It's... complicated.

[Mr. Nakamura folds his hands expectantly]

Hiro Nakamura: I have to bring that painting to a man in Las Vegas... so I can steal Tazeko Kensei's sword - then use my powers to stop a bomb from blowing up New York!

Kaito Nakamura: [in Japanese] Kensei? From those stories I used to read you?

Hiro Nakamura: [in Japanese] If only I had the sword I could show you what I can do.

Kaito Nakamura: [in Japanese] Do you want to see what I think of your destiny? We're going home!

Peter Petrelli: He's not like that.

Peter Petrelli: You don't know him.

Claire Bennet: [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]

Claire Bennet: [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.

Sandra Bennet: Why don't you stay for dinner? The least I can offer my new hero!

Sylar: Are you sure? If it's not too much trouble.

Sandra Bennet: I will call my husband and tell him to expect you. What did you say your name was again, Mr...

Sylar: Sylar. I don't think you'll reach him at the office though. Last I saw he was just swamped.

Meredith Gordon: [Claire hangs up from a phone call from her adoptive mother Sandra. About Sandra] She doesn't know you're here.

Claire Bennet: She doesn't really understand what's going on with me right now. Neither of my parents do.

Meredith Gordon: Well, I'll pretend I know why you're sneaking around. All girls deserve their secrets, right?

Claire Bennet: Seems like I have a lot of them these days.

[awkward pause]

Claire Bennet: I have to show you something. You may understand, or you may not, but... I think you should see.

Meredith Gordon: See what?

Claire Bennet: I think I know how I survived that fire.

[grabs a nearby kitchen knife and puts the blade to her arm]

Meredith Gordon: [in a panic] Claire, don't...!

Claire Bennet: [calmly] It's okay.

[she slowly slices her arm open in front of a surprised Meredith; within seconds, the wound heals quickly]

Claire Bennet: Please say something.

[after an awkward pause, Meredith smiles]

Meredith Gordon: Some family.

[Meredith holds up her own arm and opens her fist; a small flame ignites on her palm as a shocked Claire looks on]

Sandra Bennet: How did you do that?

Sylar: I'm special. Just like Claire... well, different but you catch the meaning. It's a shame I'll have to kill her. Maybe I'll kill you first. I really haven't decided yet.

Isaac Mendez: This city took me in. Everything important that ever happened to me happened here. Good. Bad. You. Now it's all going to be destroyed because I can't stop it.

Simone Deveaux: You don't know that

Isaac Mendez: It keeps coming back - worse every time. You saw what this looks like after the bomb. The world will never recover from that.

Simone Deveaux: It's not true. You can't lose hope.

Isaac Mendez: What hope is there?

Simone Deveaux: There's you! What you can do. Why else would you be allowed to see the future unless it was to do something about it? You can't just see the future, Isaac, you make it. You'll find a way.

Isaac Mendez: You really believe that?

Simone Deveaux: I believe in you.

Aron Malsky: [to Nikki] You're going home.

Niki Sanders: That's not possible.

Aron Malsky: Oh, it's more than possible. The charges against you have been dropped Miss Sanders.

Niki Sanders: What?

Aron Malsky: The D.A. threw out the entire case.

Niki Sanders: That can't happen. I killed people.

Aron Malsky: Well, the state of Nevada isn't so sure about that anymore. It seems a rather terrible gentleman on death row confessed to all the crimes you're accused of. D.N.A. evidence backed up everything. Wonderful system, isn't it? As far as they're concerned, justice has been served.

Niki Sanders: And as far as Linderman is concerned?

Aron Malsky: Oh, don't worry about tomorrow's problems today.

Niki Sanders: No, I need to be in here. I need help.

Aron Malsky: You only need to get dressed, Ms. Sanders. You're going home.

Niki Sanders: No... No...

Claude: You have to get rid of your distractions.

Peter Petrelli: The people that I love are not distractions.

Claude: Then why can't you fly? You've done it. You're body remembers how. The only thing standing in your way is you.

Peter Petrelli: What am I supposed to do? Cut them out of my life? How cold do you expect me to be?

Claude: Did you forget you're a bomb? You've got to remember what this is about. Or do you have to ask your brother's permission for that as well?

Peter Petrelli: Anything else that I have to do? Do you want to make a list?

Claude: You're a sad cartoon of a broken heart bleeding all over the place. I'm just trying to get your head straight.

Peter Petrelli: Before I hit the ground, when I knew what was about to happen I had this flash, in my head of this girl that I met in Texas. This cheerleader, she could heal herself. God, she's this sweet kid. Sad little smile and she just... You were wrong! I don't have to cut her out! I have to remember her, how she made me feel. That's how I...

[Peter starts cycling through abilities]

Peter Petrelli: Oh, God! It's happening. I'm losing it!

[Claude punches him, knocking him out]

Claude: Well, it's a start.

Noah Bennet: [answering the phone] Yes.

Isaac Mendez: [on the phone] I think I found a way to stop him. I found him.

Noah Bennet: [on the phone] Sylar?

Isaac Mendez: [on the phone] I thought you had Sylar.

Noah Bennet: [on the phone] I will again. Soon. You mean Petrelli, where is he?

Isaac Mendez: [on the phone] I think he's been here this whole time and I've been painting him except no one can see him like he's a ghost or invisible. What does that mean?

Noah Bennet: [on the phone] It means an old friend isn't quite as dead as we thought he was.

Hiro Nakamura: [in Japanese] You have made the right choice, Father.

Kaito Nakamura: [in Japanese] Let us hope so. This does not mean I approve of what you are doing.

Hiro Nakamura: [in Japanese] That's okay. You don't have to. Life evolves, Father. And the son you wanted to be like you will follow his own path. Now I have to go save the world!

[Hiro hugs Mr. Nakamura]

Kaito Nakamura: [in Japanese] Should never have read him those stories.
