  • Quotes

    • Astrid: Walter, I've got the results of the blood sample from the book.
      Walter: Oh. (chuckles to himself) High concentration of capsaicin! Which means it's not blood at all. It's chili pepper juice. He must have spilt some in the book.
      Peter: Well, that's great news. So, we'll add "messy" to the APB.
      Walter: No, it is good news. A concentration of 970 thousand on the Scoville scale; that's one of the hottest chili peppers there is. I hypothesize that a Naga Jolokia from India, otherwise known as the King Cobra Chili. I once ate one. The flatulence was... horrible. Very embarrassing.

    • The Observer: Who is she? Why did you save her?
      August: I saw her many years ago. She was a child. Her parents had just been killed. She was crying. But she... she was brave. She crossed my mind... somehow. She never left it. I think... it's what they call... feelings. I think... I love her.
