Major: [narrating] My mind is human. My body is manufactured. I'm the first of my kind, but... I won't be the last. We cling to memories as if they define us. But what we do defines us. My ghost survived to remind the next of us... that humanity is our virtue. I know who I am... and what I'm here to do.

Aramaki: [in Japanese] Major. Engage targets... You're authorized.

Dr. Ouelet: You're not invulnerable. I can repair your body, but I can't protect your mind.

Major: Why not? You can see all my thoughts, so... you should be able to secure them.

Dr. Ouelet: Try and understand your importance, Mira. You're what everyone will become one day.

Major: You don't know how alone that makes me feel.

Dr. Osmund: I'm human. I'm flawed. But I embrace change... and enhancement. Now there's nothing I can't do. Nothing. Nothing I can't know. Nothing I can't be. I want you to listen to something.

[recording of girl singing plays]

Dr. Osmund: My four-year-old daughter. The time it took her to sing that lullaby, she learned to speak fluent French.

Dr. Ouelet: Hello Mira. I'm Dr. Ouelet. Do you remember anything about the attack?

Major: What happened? I was... I was drowning. There's water.

Dr. Ouelet: That's right. You were on a boat. A refugee boat. It was sunk by terrorists.

Major: Why can't I feel my body?

Dr. Ouelet: Mira, your body was damaged. We couldn't save it. Only your brain survived. We made you a new body. A synthetic shell. But your mind, your soul, your "ghost," it's still in there.

Cutter: Will it work?

Dr. Ouelet: Absolutely. She's a miracle. A machine can't lead, it can only follow orders. A machine can't imagine or care or intuit. But as a human mind in a cybernetic frame, Mira can do all those things, and more.

Cutter: The first of her kind. She will join Section 9 as soon as she is operational.

Dr. Ouelet: Please, don't do that. You're reducing a complex human to a machine.

Cutter: I don't think of her as a machine. She's a weapon. And the future of my company.

Major: The Harbor. My parents. The way they died. Did that happen?

Dr. Ouelet: No. We gave you false memories. Cutter wanted to motivate you to fight terrorists. I didn't approve. It was cruel, but my work, it was important, and... you were born. You were so beautiful.

Major: Nothing I have is real.
