  • Rebel, Rebel. Not just the character but Bryan Fuller the writer as well.

  • Is Bryan Fuller a Godsend? Is his return to the Heroes writing staff the change that is needed to give the show a much-needed shove in the right direction?

  • Pointless episode with fewer and fewer characters, even characters being killed off. I'm starting to worry about Heroes' future.

    • Ando: People like us are being arrested. Janice: By who? The government? Hiro: Yes. They're rounding us up. And they're coming for little Matt. We were sent to help. Janice: The government is coming for my son? He's just a baby. He's no threat.

    • Micah: I thought that because you looked like my mom, that I knew you. Tracy: If I met you earlier in my political career, maybe I'd be more like my bio. But I'm not that person. I'm not your mom. Micah: I know. You're nothing like her. My mom, who was the everyday American, was a hero. You're just a politician. Tracy: And who are you? Che Guevara? Micah: Che Guevara led a revolution. This is a rebellion. So whose side are you on? And "mine" is not an answer.

    • Daphne: I didn't know you could fly. Matt: I didn't know you could run on water.

    • Daphne: You convinced them I was Gwen Stefani? Matt: Uh... yeah. Got you a good room, didn't it?

    • Angela: Hello, Millie. Millie: You look like you've been mugged and the first thing they stole was your dignity.
