Stephen Kepler: Earth gets one day, alright, the other 364 we're-we're-we're cranking the AC in our Hummer and then one day a year, ooh we separate the plastic. You know what I think? I think that once we die out, a couple hundred years, Earth is gonna have a people day, you know, to remember us. One day a year she is gonna laugh and laugh and shake our bones.
Ivy: How'd you sell DeWitt on it?
Topher Brink: Everybody wants to be righteous when they can afford it.
Ivy: Even Topher Brink.
Topher Brink: This feeling, it is not unlike pride.
Adelle DeWitt: [to Ballard] Did you really think you could just walk into the Dollhouse? When everyone knows it doesn't exist.
Paul Ballard: Come on.
Stephen Kepler: What? Just because we can move forward, we must? You know, this is the same expansionist thinking that led to the Trail of Tears, man!
Paul Ballard: Carrots!
Stephen Kepler: They told me this was gonna be the new Eden.
Paul Ballard: Eden wasn't a prison.
Stephen Kepler: What, are you kidding? The apples were monitored!
Paul Ballard: I don't even care that these people signed themselves over to you. There is no provision for... for consensual slavery.
Mellie: Look at the real me. And really think about whether I've ever told you *anything* I didn't believe with all my heart.
Paul Ballard: You know, you just said *exactly* what I needed to hear. And that's why I'm leaving.
Paul Ballard: I followed her to 23 Flower, the Dollhouse.
Loomis: What, you just flashed your badge, swooped in on them like Prince Valiant?
Loomis: [to Ballard] It's a good thing I'm relatively sure you're not crazy.
Paul Ballard: I told you. You're not in trouble.
Stephen Kepler: Oh, you are naive. They will kill me. And you. And kill me again. Please, I shouldn't have said anything.
Boyd Langton: It came in an envelope. It was hand delivered. Who else would be trying to contact you covertly?
Adelle DeWitt: I guess he didn't hear about the regime change.
Paul Ballard: [Looking at November in her sleep pod] They flip a switch, you'll kill me without even knowing it. I'm sorry.
Paul Ballard: [Opening Echo's pod] Caroline?
Boyd Langton: [From behind; pointing a gun] Sorry, Agent Ballard. You don't get the girl!
Stephen Kepler: [Trying to hide his marijuana] Carrots! Medicinal carrots! Personal-use medicinal carrots that were here when I moved in and I'm holding it for a friend!
Stephen Kepler: You know, I care about my carbon footprint, but most people out there are making carbon snow angels!
Stephen Kepler: This is like one of those buddy cop movies where you're the hard-nosed FBI agent and I'm the guy who hates buddy cop movies!
Paul Ballard: How far down it is?
Stephen Kepler: Ten stories. It's the best way in. I'm sorry, man. That's just how it is.
Paul Ballard: Let's go.
Stephen Kepler: No! No way! You'd go down there?
Paul Ballard: You showed me this thinking I'd give up?
Stephen Kepler: I was nurturing a tender, throbbing hope that you'd give up, yes!
Paul Ballard: Well, I'm not! Show me the real way in!
Stephen Kepler: No, that is the real way in. I just thought that you'd give up!
