Quotes

Charlie Skinner: So, here's what I need you to do.
Will McAvoy: What *you* need us to do, or what the Lansings need us to do?
Charlie Skinner: At this moment, what the Lansings want is what I want. They spent the last year doing nothing but standing by us when it made a lot more sense to not- not to- not to stand by- to not stand by- I'm saying, it would have made more sense...
MacKenzie McHale: Find your way home.
Charlie Skinner: To dump us.
