  • Quotes

    • Nathan: You saw what one man with unstoppable power almost did to this country.
      Peter: Yeah, but we stopped him.
      Nathan: We didn't do anything, he did… because he still had power. And that was just one village. The whole world… Somalia, Darfur, Bosnia, the Middle East… murder, genocide, don't we have an obligation to try and stop it?
      Peter: Yes we do, but not like this.
      Nathan: Then how? Pinehearst has a way, it's not perfect, not yet… but if we don't try to stop what's happening in the world, we're just as guilty as the people who are committing the crime.

    • Sylar: I think this game of cat and mouse is over.
      Bennet: They're not your parents.
      Sylar: What are you talking about?
      Bennet: They're manipulating you. Arthur and Angela. I've read your files, Gabriel. You're not their son. They're just leveraging your mommy issues to turn you into their weapon.

    • Sam: You gotta get him out of my bathroom, man. What is his problem?
      Ando: He doesn't want to grow up.
      Sam: Everyone has to grow up. Dude.
      Ando: (Japanese) You must grow up.
      Hiro: (Japanese) You guys didn't grow up.
      Ando: He says you guys didn't grow up.
      Hiro: (Japanese) You read comic books and eat junk food.

    • Elle: (to Sylar) With our abilities gone, Bennet is the powerful one. He's better trained and he will kill you.

    • Sylar: No one ever really changes.
      Elle: You did... I saw you.
      Sylar: That was temporary. And then I got my powers back. And I understand now -- I'm never going to change, and neither are you because we're both just damaged goods.

    • Sylar: You know, I've been thinking.
      Elle: About what?
      Sylar: About what you said about finding ourselves free of parents... of powers.
      Elle: What about it?
      Sylar: You were wrong.

    • Arthur: Are you ready to get back to work?
      Mohinder: Look at me. Where else could I go?
      Arthur: We'll find a cure. But that monster inside of you, that's something you're going to have to take care of all by yourself.

    • (Claire is reading Hiro's 9th Wonders comic while Hiro watches Noah and Kaito)
      Claire: (reading) "I don't think I'd be a very good father."
      Noah: (Japanese) I don't think I'd be a very good father.
      Claire: (reading) "Once again, not a request."
      Kaito: (Japanese) Once again, not a request.
      Claire: (reading) "Don't get too close."
      Kaito: (Japanese) Don't get too close.
      Claire: Holy sh--!

    • Elle: Do you think it's permanent?
      Sylar: What... our powers going away or us?
      Elle: Both, I guess.
      Sylar: I don't know anymore.
      Elle: What if it is... permanent.
      Sylar: Then you get exactly what you want.
      Elle: And what is it I want?
      Sylar: A chance to reinvent ourselves. Free of powers or perils.

    • (Hiro dumps out a box of 9th Wonders! back issues)
      Sam: Hey, this is not a library! You read, you buy.
      Hiro: (giving Sam a credit card) Then we buy. (grabbing one more comic) This one too, please.
      (Hiro pulls out all the comics and fans them in front of his face)
      Hiro: (Japanese) Best. Day. Ever.

    • The Haitian: Why did you come here, Peter?
      Peter: To find you. Take you back to stop my father.
      The Haitian: Do not lie to me.
      Peter: I needed to know I could be a hero without my powers.

    • Frack: This is really weird.
      Ando: Did you find something?
      Frack: Issue one of 9th Wonders!.
      Sam: Yeah, this is the issue where, uh, Hiro's dad gives the baby Claire to her father. Makes him swear to protect her. (to Hiro) You were there. That's the first and only time that Claire Bennet and Hiro Nakamura met.
      Hiro: (to Ando in Japanese) What's he saying?
      Frack: That's not the only time.
      Sam: No, no. Kirby Plaza doesn't count. They never actually even talked.
      Frack: Maybe they did. Look at this. In the greenhouse. That's Claire and that's Hiro hiding behind the ferns.
      Sam: And Hiro's wearing the same clothes he is now.
      Frack: I think Hiro has to take Claire here to get his memory back.
      Ando: (to Hiro in Japanese) You have to take Claire here to get your memory back.
      Hiro: (Japanese) How do I find Claire?
      Ando: How does he find Claire?
      Frack: Uh... (hands Hiro an issue of 9th Wonders!)
      Hiro: (Japanese) I must go there. Right now! (puts issue one is his jacket)
      Ando: Hiro! (Hiro teleports away) (Japanese) Wait-
      Sam: Best. Day. Ever.

    • (Hiro teleports into the Bennet home)
      Hiro: Save the Cheerleader...
      (Hiro grabs Claire's hand and both of them teleport away)

    • (Matt and Daphne walk into Sam's Comics)
      Matt: Hey. We got our abilities back. Where's Hiro?
      Ando: He's gone.
      Matt: Gone where?
      Ando: No one knows.
      Matt: Okay Uhh, let's look in one of your comic books.
      Sam: No, no. That well is dry. Isaac Mendez is dead. This is the last posthumous issue. But it's not the last story.
      Ando: What do you mean?
      Sam: There's a legend I heard from a guy at a convention who heard it from a dude who heard it from another dude that one more 9th Wonders! story exists.
      Ando: Where?
      Sam: The day that he died, Isaac Mendez bequeathed his sketch book to a humble bike messenger. You find that messenger, you find your story.

    • Arthur: I think this eclipse showed us all exactly who we are. Desperate, angry, and weak.

    • (Hiro teleports next to Sylar)
      Hiro: Bad man.

    • Ando: Good, we found out how to get your powers back! Now we just need to figure out how to get your brain back.

    • Flint: This gonna give me my powers back?
      Mohinder: It'll help track the changes your body is going through.
      Flint: You really think I'm that kind of stupid, doc?
      Mohinder: Honestly... yeah. I did.

    • Sandra: They are asking a lot of questions. They called the police. What am I supposed to tell them?
      Noah: Tell them what I would tell them.
      Sandra: You mean lie.

    • Elle: You're hurting me.
      Sylar: I know.

    • Arthur: Being powerless makes me vulnerable.
      Mohinder: You're paranoid.
      Arthur: Very much so.

    • Samedi: Others believe that names grant great strength.
      Nathan: Is that why you call yourself Baron Samedi? So people will worship you like a god?
      Samedi: Is that why you took the title Senator?

    • Noah: That's right, run! I want you to be scared! Just like Claire was! This ends today.

    • The Haitian: His followers think he is a god.
      Peter: Then I say we make him bleed

  • Notes

    • Power Developments: Daphne Millbrook: Daphne has a disease called cerebral palsy. Without her abilities her legs are weak and virtually unusable. She says that her powers allowed her to walk, then to run, then to run very fast. The Haitian: The Haitian showcased the ability to be able to knock people unconscious by simply grasping their skull for a few seconds. We have previously seen him use this power on Matt Parkman from a distance, but it happened more slowly and it seemed possible that Matt had merely been drugged. The Haitian also appears to have killed his brother (Baron Samedi) with a touch, but it is not clear exactly how this aspect of his power worked.

      Claire Bennet: Claire's regenerative powers are shown to have prevented her body from developing a natural immune system, creating the illusion that her gunshot wound occurred many hours ago when in reality it was mere minutes ago.
