  • Quotes

    • Alec: Normal, what's the good word buddy?
      Normal (singing): For he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good felloow...
      Alec: The man's finally lost it.

    • Joshua: Alec! I'm so glad to see you!
      Alec: Uh-huh
      Joshua: This is Gem. She's having a baby.
      Alec: Oh, so naturally you thought of stopping by Jam Pony in broad daylight.

    • Max: You heard the man.
      Mole: Well this sucks.
      Alec: I fought the law and the law won.

    • Normal: (to Max) I always knew you were a wrong number. You never had me fooled for a second there, miss.
      Sketchy: Yeah, whatever. Transgenic central right here under your nose.
      Normal: Shut up.

    • Sketchy: Hey, Max. I was hoping you might possibly be interested in having me interview you about your life as a hot transgenic female on the run in post-pulse America?
      Max: No!

    • Logan: That's a good idea – start shooting people. 'Cause that's what White wants. Then you can prove you're the monster people think you are.
      Mole: Shut up! You're not one of us!
      Logan: No, I'm not, but I'm standing right here with you, aren't I?

    • Max: This is all my fault. I let these people loose in the world, but there's no place for us out here. There's no place anywhere.
      Logan: You gave them freedom, Max. And the thing about freedom, it's never free.

    • Clemente: Special Agent-in-Charge White. (White mutters) What? The transgenics taped you up and took your uniforms? (White shouts, muffled by tape) No, way! And you want me to go after them? That's a good idea. (leaves, without untying or untaping White)

    • Max: (to crowd of trangenics) Where are we gonna go? I can't stop anyone from leaving, but I'm through running and hiding and being afraid. I'm not going to live my life like that anymore. Aren't you tired of living in darkness? Don't you want to feel the sun on your face, to have a place of your own where you can walk down the street without being afraid? They made us, and they trained us to be soldiers, to defend this country. It's time for them to face us and take responsibility instead of trying to sweep us away like garbage. We were made in America, and we're not going anywhere. So they call us freaks, who cares? Today, I'm proud to be a freak. And today we're gonna make a stand right here. Who's with me?

    • Reporter: Tell us about your captors. What are these creatures like? Is it true you delivered a transgenic baby?
      Normal: Yes, I did indeed. And a beautiful, bouncing baby girl she is.
      Reporter: So you're saying they're not all monsters, then?
      Normal: Monsters? No. No more than you and me.

    • Logan (to Alec): Just for the record, that chick was kicking your ass.

    • Max: Bring around your muscle queens anytime. I'll be happy to kick their ass.
      White: We are not finished.
      Max: Fe'nos tol, bitch.

    • Joshua: He deserves to die! He killed Annie!
      Max: No. He deserves to die, a lot. But if you kill him now, the only thing people will remember about today is how some transgenic killed a human being in cold blood...and then they'll never stop hunting us.

    • Normal (to Gem): Okay. Okay, you're fully dilated. You're in a late second stage. It's not going to be long now. I want you to breathe from your diaphragm, okay?
      Original Cindy: And you know this how?
      Normal: Dad was a dairy farmer. I know my way around the inside of a heifer better than you do.

    • Max: What's that?
      Alec: It's a hole in my body made by a bullet.
      Max: Been there, done that.

    • Normal: My golden boy's a mutant.
      Alec: We prefer "genetically empowered."
      Normal: Take me, Jesus.
      Mole: Careful what you wish for.

    • Normal: Jumpin' George W.

    • Alec: (as Mole pulls him into Jam Pony) Oh, this should be interesting.

    • Mole: I'll say one thing for ordinaries--they know when to run.
      Joshua: Maybe we should run, too.
      Mole: We don't run, we fall back.

    • Other Driver: Hey! Punk-ass! Look what you did to my truck!
      Joshua: Uh-oh.
      Mole: Punk-ass?
      Joshua: Uh-oh.

    • Alec: It's not my birthday.
      Normal: Yeah, it's right there in black and white on your application form.
      Alec: Oh yeah, yeah. Boy, nothing gets by you, does it, Normal?

    • Second Guy on TV: Yeah, get out of town, you egg-sucking freaks!
      Dix: Well? You heard him, boys. Looks like it's back to Manticore.

    • Mole: Hey, Max. How'd it go?
      Max: Ever notice how drug dealers have no sense of humor when it comes to money?

    • Max: Two million years of human evolution and this is what we get. You morons.

    • Sketchy: CeCe is one of them too. Cool.

    • Normal: It's okay. You're safe now.
      (Alec does a reverse arm breaker on Normal)
      Alec: No. I'm safe now.

  • Notes

    • This is a 90 minute episode that was made as the season ender but later turned out to be the series finale.

  • Allusions

    • Re: Max tells Lita's character to "just bring It".

      That's a reference to the video game "WWF's Smackdown: Just Bring It" and is also known as one of the WWF superstar, The Rock's catchphrases.
