  • Bryce: Listen, this Keiko--I've never met her. But I saw her in my flashforward. I--I started drawing her. I have 20 canvasses in my house of her. She was wearing this t-shirt of a sushi restaurant just outside of Tokyo. So I flew to Japan. I flew to Japan because of a t-shirt. But I didn't find her. I didn't find her, and I thought that was my only shot. I know that she's here in LA, and now maybe you have a phone number. She changed my life just because I saw her. Immigration Holding Guard: That was really your flashforward? Bryce: Yeah, it was. Immigration Holding Guard: That's amazing. Because in my flashforward... I had $100 in my pocket and I couldn't figure out for the life of me how it got there.

  • Mark: No, no, no, no, no. Hear me out. Wait. hear me out. Whoever put those bombs in there is targeting something specific. So we need to figure out what. Stan: So help me, Mark, all the glorious choirs of Heaven, if you step out of this car, I will have your head on a plate.

  • Mark: I just kind of lost it. And then... and then I started to drink. Aaron: You know... sometimes what happens in the world makes us forget it's all up to us. We have choices--you, me... Tracy. You choose what's next, and you'll wind up right where you're supposed to be. Take care of yourself, Mark.

  • Simon: Your friend asked you to trust me. Demetri: Janis wanted me to help you. I do not trust you.

  • Olivia: The answers will come. Lloyd: You sound so certain. Olivia: At 10:00 p.m., the answers will come... because they will. It's not about equations. It's not about the two of us just physically being here. It's about this moment... right here. I've fought it and resisted it, and yet here it is. It happened. The future happened.

  • Demetri: You lying son of a bitch. Simon: Hey, I didn't do this, Demetri, not then and certainly not now! I'm not going to let them do this to me, Demetri. I won't let them turn me into a monster, to use my machine, my mind. Millions of people, Demetri--millions of people don't deserve to die. You know what? You want to stop me? You want to stop me from doing what I'm doing, which is trying to shut down this machine? Then you're going to have to shoot me.
