  • Quotes

    • Hiro: Every hero hits a slump now and then.
      Ando: Slump? Are you kidding? We are the worst heroes ever.
      Hiro: Don't talk like that, Ando.
      Ando: First we lost the formula. Then we lost the speedster. Then we lost Adam Monroe-
      Hiro: We've made mistakes, but we can't lose heart. The world is depending on us.
      Ando: The world is screwed.

    • Noah: (to Claire) I know you're disappointed, but I did what I had to do. For us.
      Sylar: She doesn't believe a word you're saying. She knows exactly what you did back there, why you didn't take down Stephen Canfield when you had the chance.
      Noah: Nobody's talking to you.
      Sylar: Claire finally sees you for what you are. A user. Isn't that right, Claire? (to Noah) You used her to try to find that poor man, then you used him to try to kill me, because to you, I'm nothing but a monster. (to Claire) He doesn't see our humanity, Claire. He never will.

    • Nathan: (opening voiceover) It's all happening so fast. My life is a speeding train and I'm not sure where it's headed. One thing is certain, I've been given a second chance, touched by God and I've got to believe that he has a purpose for my life. So why am I filled with self-doubt? Plagued by demons, real and imaginary? Frightened by the challenges ahead, and haunted by the ghosts of my past? Does God know what I am? Do I? Am I an angel, or a monster? A hero, or a villain? And why can't I see the difference?

    • Knox: You're the one with the powers?
      Hiro: Yes. I control time and space.
      Knox: Cool.

    • Claire: Mom.
      Sandra: Claire! Thank God. I was so worried. Are you okay? Because if you are, you are so grounded.

    • Hiro: We are bad asses now!
      Ando: Yes! Very bad ass!

    • Hiro: (in Japanese) He said look tough. Not like Mr. Roboto.
      Ando: (in Japanese) This is my tough guy walk.

    • Adam Monroe: This bar is the go-to destination of specials for hire.
      Hiro: Just like the cantina!
