  • Quotes

    • Samuel: You seem to have found my power.
      Peter: It's funny how that works, huh? I'm not gonna let you hurt anyone now.
      Samuel: Peter, you of all people should know they have to fear us! That's the only way they'll respect us. All you've ever wanted was respect. We both know what it's like to live in the shadow of a brother. Joseph destroyed my potential, kept me down, just like your brother.
      Peter: My brother didn't let me down. He built me up.

    • Matt: (thinking) You want to leave, right now.
      Eli: Are you trying to push a thought? All but one of us are pretty... thoughtless.

    • Lauren: (about Claire) What is she doing?
      Noah: Breaking my heart.

    • Samuel: Ladies and gentlemen, do you want a show? Well, this is the greatest show on Earth!

    • Samuel: You think you're here to save them, Claire, but they don't need saving. They know what I've done for them.
      Claire: Do they know that you gain your strength from them? (to carnival members) You are the source of his power. Without you, he is nothing. That's why Joseph was keeping this family small for all those years, because he knew. He knew how powerful Samuel could be, that he would lose control just like he did when he buried that town. But if you all walk away now, and he will be weak. He will be ordinary. He will be nothing.

    • Hiro: It is over. The damsel has found her happy ending. My hero's journey has come to an end. I have no more quests.
      Ando: Really? Because Noah Bennet just found Samuel Sullivan. The carnival is in New York. Central Park. Destiny calls...
      Hiro: Destiny calls.

    • Hiro: I can fix this, Charlie.
      Old Charlie: Fix this? How do you mean?
      Hiro: I can fix everything.
      Ando: I'm sorry. Will you excuse us for one minute? (Hiro and Ando go aside and converse in Japanese) What do you mean, "fix it"?
      Hiro: I will go back to 1944... and take her right back to the Burnt Toast Diner.
      Ando: Hiro. There's no such thing as stepping on a "small butterfly."
      Hiro: All I'm doing is righting a terrible wrong.
      Ando: So she can lead a normal life.
      Hiro: Exactly.
      Ando: Ah, so you are doing this for her, not for you.
      Hiro: Absolutely.

    • Noah: It doesn't matter what I believe anymore, because the whole world is about to find out about you. We can thank Samuel for that.
      Claire: Maybe it won't be so bad. Maybe the world is more ready than you think it is. Things change.
      Noah: Sure. There might be curiosity for a while, but all it takes is one Sylar and then the pitchforks come out and all hell breaks loose. I've seen it. They will turn on you, Claire. It's human nature. You're right. Things change. But people don't.

    • Noah: (to Claire) I think I know why Samuel put you down here with me. So you could watch me die.

    • Samuel: Tonight will be a night unlike any other. Tonight... we change everything. For too many years, we've been shamed into believing we're second class citizens. When the truth is we're king of the hill! They should aspire to be like us, not the other way around. So I make this pledge to you. Tonight, once and for all, we pull back the curtain and reveal ourselves for who we truly are. After tonight, we will be respected.

    • Doyle: Sylar, please. Listen to me. Please, Samuel made me do it.
      Sylar: Really? 'Cause I thought you were the puppet master.
      Doyle: Oh, come on. What do you care about this girl, anyway?
      Sylar: I am here to save her.
      Doyle: That's not you. You're like me.
      Sylar: No. I'm a hero.

    • Noah: I got to say... I never liked carnivals.
      Peter: Yup.

    • Peter: What the hell does she think she's doing? She's going to change everything.
      Sylar: That's right. It's a brave new world.

    • Claire: My name is Claire Bennet, and this is attempt number...I guess I've kind of lost count.

  • Allusions

    • Sylar: That's right. It's a brave new world.
      Referencing Shakespeare's The Tempest, Act V, Scene 1, where Miranda says, "O wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world! That has such people in't!" The quote serves as the basis for the title of the novel Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, a book about a future where war, disease and famine have been wiped out but at the cost of family, culture, literature, and religion.

    • Doyle: Is that Dudley Doo-Right in there?
      Referencing Dudley Do-Right, the dim-witted but heroic Canadian Mountie immortalized in The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show (1959-1964), and later spun off into his own show and a live-action movie. Dudley fights against Snidely Whiplash with the assistance of Horse, his horse.
