  • Quotes

    • Alec: The absence of proof isn't proof of anything.

    • Lily Jones: Have friends much?
      Kiera: What do you mean by that?
      Lily Jones: You're all like "do this", "do that", "get in the car cuz someone's trying to kill you." Kind of bossy.
      Kiera: Look who's talking.
      Lily Jones: Yeah. But I'm the kid. I'm supposed to be this way. You're the adult. You're supposed to be nice.
      Kiera: Get in the car. (Lily stares at her) Please.

    • Kellog: What? No hello?
      Kiera: The last time I met you here, you were carrying a live grenade. Then, we almost got blown up by a mine, so forgive me for not being polite.
      Kellog: Well, I'm exciting to be around. What can I say?
      Kiera: So this is a Kevlar optional affair?
      Kellog: For you. Not for your ancestors. I just met with Kagame. The danger's real. They're going after your grandmother.
      Kiera: I already know that. Why?
      Kellog: Well, to get rid of you for starters. And it's all your fault. You had to threaten Lucas with killing his grandparents. That got them all going about what might happen if one of our ancestors were killed. And now Kagame, he wants to try a grand experiment to test our paradoxical vulnerability. Cupcake?
      Kiera: So that makes me what? The guinea pig?
      Kellog: Squeak squeak.
