Dr. Helen Magnus
Dr. Will Zimmerman
Henry: Ahoy mateys!...its because you're at sea.
Helen: Henry, are you certain these are the proper coordinates?
Henry: Absolutely. I traced the second signal Sally received to where you are right now. But she says that, since you left port there has been, uh, no further communication from her people.
Helen: Did you say 'Sally'?
Henry: That was his idea.
(pointing to Will)
Will: It's our nickname for the sanctuary mermaid.
Helen: She has a proper name you know.
Will: Which is unpronounceable.
Henry: Its a true fact.
Will: Besides, it beats calling her something obvious like...Ariel.
Helen: If you two are finished...
Helen: As long as we don't exchange bodily fluids … you shouldn't get infected.
Will: (Warren G.) Harding … was an abnormal?
Helen: You don't think a normal person would choose a job that impossible?
Will: The people that you've met, the … the history that you've witnessed, how do you relate to anybody? Dinner parties must be hell.
Helen: History is just that, Will. It's history. We've all experienced it. I just have more under my belt than most people.
Will: No. No. No. No. No. You were in Rheims the day the Nazi's surrendered. You were right there in the room when it happened.
Helen: Only because Eisenhower refused to be in the same room as General Jodl, and asked that I accompany General Smith to ensure that the process went smoothly.
Will: I guess Ike didn't want to breathe the same air as the Nazi High Command.
Helen: Some of them didn't even breathe air.
Henry: So are you guys there? In the middle of it, right now?
Helen: It's not that exciting, Henry.
Henry: Come on, are you kidding me? Doc, you're in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle! People have been speculating about that part of the ocean for centuries. Missing ships, planes disappearing, come on!
Will: You know, he's right. There's been reports of … of lost time and doors to other dimensions …
Henry: Alien abductions?
Helen: It's the ocean. Seriously.
Helen: You've seen too many B-movies.
Will: Hey, our whole life is a B-movie. It's a classic, don't get me wrong, but still …
Helen: Ashley said you were dreading this trip.
Will (scoffs): Well, truthfully, trapped 10 hours in a tin can is not my idea of the most appealing mission.
Helen: Oh, but it's 10 hours trapped in a tin can with me, and all of your questions
Will: That's true.
Will: So I'm guessing by how quiet Ashley's been that she knows … Druitt is her father?
Helen: She does.
Helen: And what?
Will: Well, she just found out that her dad is the actual Jack the Ripper. That's gotta put some strain on your relationship.
Will: You know, Magnus, working at the Sanctuary is more than just a job to me. It's …
Will: It's the only family I've ever had.
Helen: When you've been alive for as long as I have … You learn not to get too close to people. I've buried a lot of friends, colleagues, lovers. More than you can imagine. You asked me earlier how I could relate to people? Well … dinner parties
(Magnus backs Will into a corner)
Helen: Damn it, Will! I have lived longer than any human has a right to. In the end, all I can hope is to choose how it ends. Being taken over by an undersea parasite is not on the list.
Will: And what is?
Helen: Just be creative, if the time comes. Do I have your word?
Will: I can't believe I did what I did.
Helen: You had to. We both know it would never have left me while I was still alive. As deaths go, it was … very creative.
Will: Magnus, never, ever ask me to kill you again.

In "Requiem," Dr. Magnus claims to have known Jules Verne ("hence the name of my submarine"). The Nautilus was the name of Captain Nemo's fictional submarine in Jules Verne's novels 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea and The Mysterious Island. Verne named the ship after Robert Fulton's experimental Nautilus, long considered to be the world's first workable submarine.
