Season 3 Episode 3

One of Us, One of Them

Aired Monday 9:00 PM Sep 29, 2008 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Mrs. Petrelli tells Sylar that he is not really the son of a woman who collects Hummel figurines. But in fact, Sylar's mother collected snow globes, as seen in the episode The Hard Part (1x21).

    • German cinema-guest: "Sei still! Halt die Klappe!"

      This is translated with "Be quiet!", but as a matter of fact the German says "Be quiet! Shut up (your mouth!)". ~ Normally Germans would pause at least till another disturbing before using the harsh "Halt die Klappe!". The guest seems to be very annoyed anyway, since he is using the fratanizing German Du-form instead of Sie-form.

  • Quotes

    • Knox: You took away my life.
      Noah: You're a criminal, Knox.
      Knox: Criminals get trials and lawyers. Me, I got stuck in Super-Guantanamo.
      Noah: You got a bum rap. Is that it?
      Knox: I think you get off being judge, jury and executioner. Now it's my turn.

    • Mr. Bennet: (about Angela) You do realize she's playing us, don't you? This is all one big game to her.
      Sylar: Maybe. But aren't you curious to see how it all plays out?

    • Sandra: You're a seventeen year old girl!
      Claire: Who can't get hurt! Can't die, can't even feel pain… You just don't understand.

    • Mr. Bennet: He's a murderer!
      Angela: Then you and Gabriel have more in common than you care to admit. He's been misunderstood. He just needs structure. And you're the perfect person to give it to him.

    • Hiro: You're telling us your plan? What kind of overconfident nemesis are you?
      Daphne: You're 0 for 2 against me, Pikachu. That's just regular confidence.

    • Hiro: Go away! We were here first.
      Daphne: You can't call dibs.
      Hiro: Can too. Dibs!

    • Peter: I told you; somebody put me in his body against my will. I swear.
      Knox: Then why'd you come along with us? You had plenty of chance to bail.
      Peter: You said you were gonna hurt people. I couldn't let that happen.
      Knox: Now I know you're full of it. Nobody's that heroic.

    • (in Japanese)
      Ando: (after hitting Haitian) Holy crap! It worked!
      Hiro: What are you doing?
      Ando: I'm being awesome.

    • Meredith: All right, we'll start at the beginning; survival.
      Claire: I've already mastered survival. I need to learn how to fight.
      Meredith: There's some things you can't fight, Claire.

    • Meredith: (to Claire) You gotta learn to save yourself before you can save the world. There ain't nothing wrong with just being a seventeen year old girl for a while. You got that?

    • Mohinder: (voiceover) And as the search for self continues we look for answers everywhere, in nature, in God, in tiny tragedies that may never be understood but still, we are driven to it, single-minded on one goal, to find our purpose on this earth, no matter what the ramification, the friendships that may be hurt or the deals with the devil we need to make.

    • Mohinder: (voiceover) In the ongoing search for self, there are days when we learn something genuinely new, something uncovered, hidden, that we never knew was there, something that surprises us and, on that day of self discovery, a question remains. What kind of person are we? Does the hero or the villain inside us win the day?
