  • Quotes

    • Markus: The greater the chaos, the greater the beauty that comes out of it. Assuming that everything follows the right strange attractor. 'Cause that's what shapes the world around it.

    • Markus: You both had a long time to think about what to say to each other when and if you had the chance but 15 years apart is still 15 years apart. It'll take him a while to get past the point of "Okay, we found each other. Now what..."
      Jeremiah: Markus. You know what, uh, high verbal is?
      Markus: Yeah.
      Jeremiah: Good. Saves me the trouble.
      Markus: You trying to say I talk too much? 'Cause we could talk about that.

    • Smith: God says, "Look to the east and despair."

    • Markus: (On Valhalla Sector's downfall.) Several thousand people died getting it done. And that's not something you celebrate. That's something you apologise for. (Markus walks away)
      Mister Smith: (to Kurdy) God says: "It took you people until now to figure that out?"

    • Mister Smith: The next thing I knew, I was awake on the shore. There were people around saying they saw a wave wash me up and just leave me there. Scared the hell out of them.
      Kurdy: Why, they thought you were dead?
      Mister Smith: No.
      Kurdy: So what's so scary about seeing a wave wash somebody ashore?
      Mister Smith: It was a lake.

    • Mister Smith: I'm just God's sockpuppet, okay, he shoves his hand up my ass and words comes out the other end.

    • Markus: This is where it starts, Erin. We're applying force to the outside world to shape it the way we want it to be. In order to protect it from all the other people who want to use force to shape the world.
      Erin: It has to be done. We just need to be sure we're right.
      Markus: Ah. And for my next trick, I'll walk on water, heal the lame, and turn wine into water.
      Erin: It's water into wine.
      Markus: Yeah. Tomato, tomahto.
