Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Raina: So you're a liar. You're a fraud.
      Garrett: An artist. A con artist, perhaps, but an artist all the same.

    • Coulson: Skye, please, tell me something good.
      Skye: We have Internet.
      Coulson: Yay. And, boy, have I lowered my expectations.

    • Fridge Agent: How the hell did Hydra know that you were coming?
      Garrett: We told them. (Grant shoots the agents)
      Grant: A little warning next time. They had automatic weapons.
      Garrett: I couldn't resist. It was too good a line.

    • Agent Kaminsky: Hail Hydra!
      Garrett: All right, all right, put your arms down, Kaminsky. You look like a West Texas cheerleader in a pep rally.

    • Coulson: There's got to be something here! This means something! This has to mean something. The world needs us! Hydra is out there. We cannot let them win! We cannot let them define us! Do you understand that? We are not agents of nothing, we are agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and that still carries weight! It has to carry weight. After everything we've been through, that carries weight!

    • Coulson: What's with the windows?
      Koenig: Supposed to make the isolation more bearable. Every day of the week, different view. Wednesday's pretty terrific if you like topless beaches.

    • Ian Quinn: You. You have to be kidding me. I've been in a cell smaller than my shoe closet. I wasn't allowed to eat with a fork, which would have been worse if I'd been allowed to eat anything but meatloaf!
