  • Quotes

    • Goliath: I don't want to hurt you.
      Coldstone: You already have!

    • Goliath: I... know you, from long ago. You are my brother.
      Coldstone: And you are my betrayer!

    • Brooklyn: But, what do we protect?
      Hudson: The clock tower.
      Goliath: No. That is merely where we sleep. This island, Manhattan, this is our castle. From this day forward, we protect all who live here, human and gargoyle alike.

    • Elisa: This is a dying neighborhood, Goliath. The big markets won't even come here. If he closes the store, people will have no place to buy food. That's more important to him than hiding in his own little castle.
      Goliath: His community needs him.
      Elisa: To survive.

    • Hudson: A gargoyle can no more stop protecting the castle than breathing the air.

    • Coldstone: What am I?
      Demona: You are cold stone brought to life.
      Coldstone: Cold... stone.

    • Xanatos: (about Coldstone) It's alive! ALIVE! (to Demona) I've always wanted to say that.
