    • Goliath: I have been waiting to arrive at some kind of final destination. But life is about the discoveries made on the journey itself. And though the road has been hard, I have no regrets about the path we have chosen. Elisa: Funny, I feel the exact same way.

    • John Castaway: I won't be defeated by the likes of you! Goliath: Brave words for a man who hides his face behind a hood.

    • MacBeth: Madame, they burnt witches like you in the Middle Ages!

    • Goliath: Now that the existence of gargoyles has been revealed to humans, our fate hangs in the balance. Will we join together and embark on a journey of hope, or will we be engulfed by the flames of fear and hatred? The time has come to choose.

    Allusions (1)

    • Broadway: But soft what light through yonder window breaks. It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
      This line is from William Shakespeare's most famous love tragedy Romeo and Juliet, written in the mid-1590s. Romeo speaks these lines in the balcony scene, when, hiding in the Capulet orchard, he sees Juliet leaning out of a high window. Romeo is dazzled by Juliet's beauty and makes him imagine that she is the sun.
