    • Kutter: Detective Kutter. Nice guns.
      Deena: Nice chin pubes... Kutter.

    • Krispin: How's the job?
      Christian: It's still a job
      Krispin: Kill any more Powers?
      Christian: That's not the job.
      Krispin: Should be.
      Christian: I was a Power, Krispin.

    • Deena: All right, I'm going to say something. You look different without the mask.
      Christian: That was the idea.
      Deena: Most of those masks, come on, you figure you'd make most of those guys right away. You... you look really different.
      Christian: I never got made.
      Deena: Umm?
      Christian: My neighbors didn't look twice. It's context. Nobody expects to see a Power like Diamond mowing his lawn.
      Deena: You mowed your own lawn?
      Christian: No, I live in a condo. The lawn was a for instance.
      Deena: Sure. So, for instance, where's your condo?

    • Christian: Come on. Let's go see a dead body.

    • Bug: Everyone gets a boost.
      Johnny: Not everyone. Just the ones who need it most. The outcasts, the foundlings, the broken toys.
      Bug: We're throwing money away giving Sway to these fucking Powerz Kidz.
      Johnny: I was one of those fucking Powerz Kidz. Never fear, Bug. We are all of us merely here then gone.

    • Calista: How did you find out you had powers?
      Christian: In high school, back in Seattle, we used to sneak out onto the docks, climb the cargo cranes, drink beer. Do dares. Who can go out the farthest on the gantry. I was out there pretty far one night, and the wind gusted and I slipped. I fell. I was falling, and all I wanted was to miss the ground, but I was gonna hit it no matter what. And then, I didn't. I swooped really fast. That's how it started for me.
      Calista: I have powers. But it's really hard, waiting to find them.
      Christian: Sometimes I forget I lost mine. I can still feel them, you know, like a phantom limb.

    • Johnny: I grew up with Walker. Diamond. He picked that name because he wanted to be thought of as hard, sharp-edged. But he wasn't. And that gap between who he wanted to be and who he really was cost him his powers. It's very hard to know who we really are. The secret to doing everything that you are capable of is to understand how little time we have. We're all of us merely here, then gone.

    • Deena: He was on a ton of shit. Maybe there was a weird interaction that...
      Dr. Death: A weird interaction? Sure, yeah, cocaine could have blown up his heart. So might a bee sting or a solar flare. He could be vulnerable to pussy for all I know. All I want is for science to work right. But the Powers fuck that up!

    Allusions (3)

    • Deena: Can't believe you did an episode of Baywatch.
      Referencing the popular TV series about the adventures of a group of lifeguards who not only saved drowning victims but dealt with criminals, earthquakes, shark attacks, and every possible calamity that could possibly happen on or near a beach.

    • Krispin: It's like having a bunch of Godzillas on the loose.
      Referencing the most famous of giant Japanese monsters, who made his screen debut in Gojira (1954). Originally a parable on the dangers of nuclear war in the aftermath of the World War II bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Godzilla spawned three separate movie series where he battled aliens and other giant monsters, and appeared in two TV cartoon series, several comics, and an American remake in 1998.

    • Deena: Johnny Royalle, come out to plaaaaayyy.
      Referencing the 1979 movie The Warriors. The head of the rival gang, Luther (David Patrick Kelly), sticks his fingertips into glass bottles, taps them together, and chants repeatedly, "Warriors, come out to plaaaaayyy."
