    • Olivia: Simone, you have a gift. You can see things that other people can't. I don't doubt that. But... wherever you think this gift came from or whoever you think bestowed it on you, it's simply an anomaly. I know that because I'm an anomaly. I have moved things with my mind. I've lit things on fire. I've caught bullets midair. I've seen things that people only dream about. I've seen... the seams between universes rip aprt. Things that humans shouldn't see. People make up explanations... assign meaning to things without knowing because it's reassuring. It's comforting. But I can't do that... because I know too much. It's all just numbers. And the invaders, as you call them, are just better at math than we are.

    • Peter: If you could see what I see, Walter... if you could experience what it feels like to fully harness the untapped potential of the human brain. You, of all people, should know that there is no reason to be afraid.

    • Olivia: Etta's not gone, Peter. Windmark didn't take her.
      Peter: Yes, he did.
      Olivia: No, he didn't. She's still here with us.
      Peter: She is dead.
      Olivia: She saved my life today with the bullet she brought to us. She's alive inside us. And there's nothing that Windmark can do about it because the love that we can share with her now is invulnerable to space and time, even to them. And I know that our hearts are broken and that it hurts, but that's what makes us human.
      Peter: Emotion is our weakness.
      Olivia: No, Peter, it's our strength, because it's the one thing that they don't have.

      ok so why hasn't anyone asked this question yet what has happened with olivias powers i understand the cortexaphan is extremely low in her system but why havent they got it back for her ...this is bothering me i just hope she gets them back

      So, they went even more Matrix this time with some MacGyver thrown in there as well.

    • Lccf Dec 09, 2012

      I immediately thought Simone has a power because she's the daughter of a cortexiphan subject, and the dialogue seems to imply that ( when Olivia compares their respective abilities ), what do you think ?

    • Gislef Dec 08, 2012

      So why do Observers have to take elevators and stairs again...?

    • CharmedOneP391 Dec 09, 2012

      Yeah I was asking myself if maybe that chip in their heads loses it's charge or something if they teleport too much? lol

    • LalaDrake Dec 09, 2012

      so that Peter can manipulate their future easier and... in a way, we can understand

    • mazzafacker Dec 07, 2012
