  • Awesome episode. Peter is getting out of control with Syler's power. Mr. Parkman and Mr. Petrilli are behind everything, but daddy Petrilli is the boss behind everyone. Daphne, Knox, Maury, Arthur, and Hiro are apart of Pinehurst Co.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (7)

    • Hiro: Every hero hits a slump now and then. Ando: Slump? Are you kidding? We are the worst heroes ever. Hiro: Don't talk like that, Ando. Ando: First we lost the formula. Then we lost the speedster. Then we lost Adam Monroe- Hiro: We've made mistakes, but we can't lose heart. The world is depending on us. Ando: The world is screwed.

    • Noah: (to Claire) I know you're disappointed, but I did what I had to do. For us. Sylar: She doesn't believe a word you're saying. She knows exactly what you did back there, why you didn't take down Stephen Canfield when you had the chance. Noah: Nobody's talking to you. Sylar: Claire finally sees you for what you are. A user. Isn't that right, Claire? (to Noah) You used her to try to find that poor man, then you used him to try to kill me, because to you, I'm nothing but a monster. (to Claire) He doesn't see our humanity, Claire. He never will.

    • Nathan: (opening voiceover) It's all happening so fast. My life is a speeding train and I'm not sure where it's headed. One thing is certain, I've been given a second chance, touched by God and I've got to believe that he has a purpose for my life. So why am I filled with self-doubt? Plagued by demons, real and imaginary? Frightened by the challenges ahead, and haunted by the ghosts of my past? Does God know what I am? Do I? Am I an angel, or a monster? A hero, or a villain? And why can't I see the difference?

    • Knox: You're the one with the powers? Hiro: Yes. I control time and space. Knox: Cool.

    • Claire: Mom. Sandra: Claire! Thank God. I was so worried. Are you okay? Because if you are, you are so grounded.

    • Adam Monroe: This bar is the go-to destination of specials for hire. Hiro: Just like the cantina! This is an allusion to the Mos Eisley Cantina scene in Star Wars: Episode IV, where Obi-Wan and Luke go to hire a pilot to take them to Alderaan.
