    • Lucas: You starting to get the picture, angel face? He's his father's son.
      Merlyn: He's my brother.
      Lucas: A blip in the gene pool. He's my son. He carries my spirit and if you kill me, the child becomes the man.
      Merlyn: I would kill him before I would let that happen.
      Lucas: Do that and you kill yourself. You only exist because of that child's faith. That too will pass when he learns his full potential. He is more powerful than you can imagine.
