Quotes

Ian O'Shea: Her name is Wanda, not "it."

Wanderer/Wanda: Kiss me like you wanna get slapped.

Jared Howe: It's a strange world.

Wanda: The strangest.

Jeb: [narrating] Our world isn't like the other worlds they came to. The way they see it, human beings are just so... alien. But if one of them can find a way to live with one of us, I wonder.

Wanderer/Wanda: You tried to kill me, and now you're protecting me?

Ian O'Shea: [beat] Strange world, isn't it?

Wanderer/Wanda: [smiles] The strangest.

Wanderer/Wanda: [under her breath] You're angry when I kiss a man you do love and angry when I kiss a man you don't. It's very confusing.

Melanie Stryder: Wanda, my sister.

Wanderer/Wanda: Yes, sister?

Melanie Stryder: Please don't do this.

Wanderer/Wanda: Don't you want to be with Jared... and Jamie?

Melanie Stryder: It doesn't have to be this way. You don't have to die. You really could go to another world, the way you've been telling everyone.

Wanderer/Wanda: Thank you, but... by the time I got to the closest planet, you, Jamie, Jared, Ian, everyone on this world I care about would be long dead. I don't want to go on without you. I love you, Mel.

Melanie Stryder: I love you. You are the purest soul, human or not, that I've ever met. The universe will be a darker place without you.

Wanderer/Wanda: Be happy, Mel. Be happy that after living so many lives, I finally found something to die for.

Melanie StryderWanderer/Wanda: Goodbye.

Jared Howe: I haven't spoken to another human being in two years.

Melanie Stryder: I'm guessing you haven't been kissed in a while, either.

[Jared smiles]

Wanderer/Wanda: You have always tried to extract it by force. The secret is, you do not remove it. It removes itself. You coax it out. You have always seen it as the enemy. It can feel the hate. It can only be captured by kindness, love.

Wanderer/Wanda: [softly, in awed voice] He sees everything. He's not crazy. He's a genius!

Melanie Stryder: [voice] And I think he's both.

Ian O'Shea: Wanda, I just want you to know that, uh... I trust you and I believe you're telling us the truth, but I... I gotta ask, what's it like for you and her, living in there together?

Melanie Stryder: It's... crowded.

Jeb: This ain't a democracy. It's a dictatorship. It's a benign dictatorship, but it's a dictatorship just the same.

Jeb: [Narrates] ... There is no Hunger. There is no violence. The environment has healed. Our planet has never been more at peace. Only, it's not our planet anymore.

[first lines]

Jeb: The earth is at peace. There is no hunger. There is no violence. The environment is healed. Honesty, courtesy and kindness are practiced by all. Our world has never been more... perfect. Only, it is no longer our world. We've been invaded by an alien race. They occupy the bodies of almost all human beings on the planet. The few humans who have survived are on the run.
