      • Marcus: It's a simple game. Sixty-four squares, thirty-two pieces. Given any position on the board, there are only a few logical moves. Understand that, and the game becomes predictable.
        Rosen: Well, you're, you're not taking the human factor into account. People don't always make the perfect move.
        Marcus: They do, though. For them. It's... their perfect move.
        Rosen: Well, now we're getting to the heart of what we've been working on. You believe that everything that happens in your life has intent. That there are no accidents or no mistakes. Life isn't like that, Marcus. It's... sometimes it's a flip of the coin.
        Marcus: The universe isn't random. Things happen because people want them to. It's just moves, and forced moves.

      • Rosen: I'm calling people like you "Alphas."
        Marcus: Alpha. Acceleration. The first variable. I like that.

      • Marcus: We're 50 meters up. It takes a little over three seconds to fall that far. That means a body would hit bottom going something like 70 miles an hour.
        Rosen: If you're trying to scare me, Marcus, you're doing an excellent job of it.

      • Bill: Gary, I need you to do a search.
        Gary: I can't search any better than anyone else, Bill. I am not "Google Guy."

      • Rosen: (voiceover) There are over six billion people on planet Earth. Ordinary folks like you and me. But if you look around carefully, you might find that some of these ordinary folks have extraordinary abilities. I call them Alphas. Some Alphas, like the ones I work with, can do things that would amaze you. Others, the angry, the lost, the afraid, have abilities that, frankly, can be terrifying.
