FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Nick: If I die here now my soul will be damned. I have to atone. I have to go back.

    • Death's Guide: Only the humanity that you desecrated can save you now.

    • LaCroix: I can grant you a gift that only the gods can grant, Nicholas. Give your life to me and I will give you 10,000 lifetimes in return. Your existence will be transformed in ways that mere mortals cannot even imagine. Come to me.

    • Schanke: I'm curious about what happens when we die, but I don't go on reconnaissance missions to find out.

    • Death's Guide: Tell me, Nicholas, after 800 years of torment, what is the one thing you value above all else?
      Nick: Humanity.
      Death's Guide: And what is humanity? Merely a race of people?
      Nick: No. A state of being, of grace.
      Death's Guide: And is that not the way to the forgiveness that you seek?

    • Natalie: Well, his toxicology test came back clean and that was my last gasp at cause of death, if you'll pardon the expression.
      Schanke: So the verdict is...
      Natalie: He shouldn't be dead.
      Schanke: But, ah, he is, isn't he?

    • Cohen: Dr. Lambert is requesting the pleasure of your company at the morgue, as in, "Tell them this is getting stranger by the minute."

    • LaCroix: Turn away from the light, Nicholas, it is not your salvation. It is only for the weak, the defeated.

    • Death's Guide: The legacy of your evil has not been purged.

    • Schanke: Ground control to Major Nick!
      Nick: What?
      Schanke: C'mon, Nick, try to stay within the foul lines.

    • Death's Guide (to Nick): LaCroix is the source of the evil that infests you. His evil is still the greater part of what you are.

    • Janette: What will you do if he (Nick) decides to step into the light? To die, as a mortal?
      LaCroix: He will return to me.

    • Natalie: C'mon, you know what I believe. Is there an afterlife? Yes. Can you just knock, walk in, visit anytime you like? I don't think so.

    • Dr. Nystrom: We're a research facility, so we do a lot of experimental work here.
      Schanke: Putting chicken brains into monkeys, that sort of thing?
