Topher Brink: I made it very clear these imprints were prone to paranoia. I flagged it in the paperwork.
Adelle DeWitt: Just as a point of interest, how potentially lethal would you say these imprints are?
Adelle DeWitt: The Alpha situation was an unfortunate technological anomaly.
Paul Ballard: "A technological anomaly?" My God, what have you people done?
Adelle DeWitt: This isn't the end of your life.
Caroline: Then why do I feel like I'm walking to the gallows?
Adelle DeWitt: Five years, and to you, it'll feel like an instant.
Boyd Langton: [Watching an active get programmed] Topher says it's like childbirth. I think it's more like watching someone die.
Paul Ballard: In a mass killing like this, the first victims will often be whoever's in the way. Who was the first individual that Alpha went for the moment he had a choice?
Topher Brink: Himself. Yeah. The first individual? He came over here to the Self Shelf. It's where I keep my primaries stored, the original personalities that the volunteers first walk in with. He took his original self and he smashed the hell out of it.
Alpha: [to Echo] She's responsible for all of the terrible things you can't remember.
Crystal: My brain hurts.
Caroline: How do you think my brain - Hey! That *is* my brain! I want my brain back! I want back in my brain!
Alpha: You should have thought of that before you vacated the premises.
Echo: You okay?
Caroline: Uh, yeah. I kick ass. Who are you?
Echo: I'm Echo.
Caroline: And who is that?
Echo: She's nobody. I'm just the porchlight waiting for you.
Echo: I have 38 brains, not one of them thinks you can sign a contract to be a slave. Especially now that we have black president.
Caroline: We have a black president? Okay, I am missing everything. Yeah, let's do it.
Echo: [Referring the hard drive with Caroline's personality] I said shoot it! I don't care!
Alpha: Yeah. Well, maybe she will!
Echo: She won't know. She's me! And we're both coming to get you!
Alpha: [back at the Dollhouse in a flashback] Whiskey? Let Echo be number one.
[slashes Whiskey's face]
Echo: I may not know who I am, but at least I know who I'm not. I'm not your girlfriend.
Alpha: [to Echo, about Caroline] She left you to the jackals, to the wolves. To the predators. Isn't that right, Caroline?
Caroline: She said that I would be taken care of. And that I would be safe.
Alpha: [laughing] Do you feel safe? Huh? Do ya? Ya feel safe?
Alpha: [to Echo] You can ascend. You can evolve. It's in you I've seen it.
Dr. Claire Saunders: [still in shock after her encounter with Alpha] He asked me if I always wanted to be a doctor.
Topher Brink: Huh. Well who can fathom the mind of a crazy person?
Dr. Claire Saunders: The one who made him crazy? Maybe.
Victor: [after being carved up by Alpha] I'm not by best anymore. I want to be my best.
Dr. Claire Saunders: Yes. I know you do.
Victor: How can I be my best now? Dr. Saunders? How can I be my best please?
Dr. Claire Saunders: You can't Victor. You can't be your best. Your best is past. Your past you can't even remember. You're ugly now. You're disgusting. All you can hope for now is pity. And for that, you're going to have to look somewhere else.
Alpha: The mind you have been given is so tiny, so primitive, that it is incredible you can even perform basic motor functions or form words.
Alpha: I'm not going to shoot the wedge. I'm going to keep the wedge. I'm going to use the wedge. And I am gonna grab Wendys and Beckys and Stacys from all over this great nation, and every one of them will be a Caroline. And every one of them will get carved up, and her throat cut until I get bored. Now get in the chair!
Adelle DeWitt: Carl William Craft.
Paul Ballard: Three names. Always ominous
Adelle DeWitt: Well he never actually killed anybody.
Boyd Langton: Not until he came here.
Alpha: We are confused. Omega, you hit me with a pipe.
Echo: Yeah, call me Omega again and you'll get some more!
Alpha: Something must've gone wrong with the composite.
Echo: Nothing went wrong. Every imprint this active has ever had is alive and awake in her head right now.
Alpha: Then why did you hit me in the head with a pipe?
Echo: It was handy? And you wanted me to kill myself!
[points to Wendy]
Caroline: [after imprinting Caroline in Wendy] What is this?
[looking at Echo]
Caroline: What am I doing sitting here, and standing over there?
Alpha: Baby... meet yourself.
Caroline: Oh, God! The wrongness of this is so large! Whose body is this?
Paul Ballard: [standing next to the chair] So this is it. This is where you steal their souls.
Topher Brink: [sarcastically] Yeah. And then we put 'em in a glass jar with our fireflies.
Topher Brink: Why is there a tall, morally judgmental man in my imprint room besides him?
[points to Boyd]
Topher Brink: Dr. Saunders?
Dr. Claire Saunders: I think you gave me more computer skills than would be required by a medical doctor. It was very easy for me to hack your system. I'm curious.
Topher Brink: About?
Dr. Claire Saunders: Well, I guess, I understand why they wouldn't wanna waste an investment. And I suppose, why hire a new physician when you can just... imprint the broken Doll. But why did you decide it was so important for me to hate you? I think that's strange.
Topher Brink: You didn't open it.
Dr. Claire Saunders: No.
Topher Brink: Aren't you curious to see who you really are?
Dr. Claire Saunders: I know who I am.
Lars: I... paid for this. It was supposed to be my fantasy. Look, I just wanted to have a little fun.
Bobby: "Little fun?" You wanted to have a little fun? Well are you?
Bobby: Are you having fun Lars?
Lars: [Whimpering] No.
Bobby: She's real. And that's the last real thing you're ever gonna see. Crystal!
Crystal: [Whiskey enters] Yeah, baby?
Echo: Hey, save it! And don't hand me any more of your crap about being some superior, ascended being. To ascend to anything, at minimum, you don't cut up women!
Alpha: Lay back in the chair.
Echo: [jumping out of chair] You lay back in the chair! I'm done laying back in the chair! I'm ready to rinse and spit.
Alpha: [backing away, pointing gun at wedge] I will shoot it! I will blast the wedge!
Echo: So blast it. What's stopping you, Edward Scissor-pud?
Alpha: I'm not fooling.
[multiple personalities talking]
Alpha: He's not kidding. *We're* not bluffing! I'm bluffing. But the rest of us! We mean business.
