FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Fitz: Is Science & Technology what you imagined, Agent Ward?
      Grant: Yep--no uniforms, no rope course, no defined muscularity on anyone.
      Fitz: No marching in place, no IQs in double digits.

    • Coulson: That's the thing about Skye. What I told her shattered her world. Her lifelong search led to stories of murder, and now it's too difficult to continue. Her search is over. Her story ends here. But you know what she said?
      Melinda: Tell me.
      Coulson: She said no—her story started here. Her whole life, she thought she wasn't wanted, that she didn't belong, that every family that took her in didn't want her to stay, didn't care. But all that time, it was S.H.I.E.L.D. protecting her, looking after her. That's what she took away from the story—not the family she'll never have, but the one she's always had. Here I am, telling her something that could destroy her faith in humanity, and somehow she manages to repair a little piece of mine. The world is full of evil and lies and pain and death, and you can't hide from it—you can only face it. The question is, when you do, how do you respond? Who do you become?

    • Skye: The Tin Man has a heart after all.
      Referencing L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) and subsequent movie adaptation in 1939. The Tin Man is seeking a heart, and travels to the city of Oz to obtain it from the Wizard. Accompanying him are the Scarecrow (seeking brains) and the Cowardly Lion (seeking courage).
