  • Quotes

    • Kyle: So tell me, was I, like, number one in my class in medical school?
      Alana: What does it matter, Kyle? You're not in competition with yourself.
      Kyle: I'm just curious.
      Alana: No, you keep bringing it up. It's more than curiosity.
      Kyle: So what if it is? If you knew there was some parallel universe where a better, smarter version of you was walking around, how would you feel?
      Alana: He wasn't better and he wasn't smarter. He was you.

    • Jean: I've always been toxic. I poison every relationship I ever had.
      Tom: This is different.
      Jean: Yes. They made it real!

    • Jean: You ever read the Bible, Baldwin?
      Tom: I went to Sunday School.

    • Tom: Jean told me Mortimer and Falcone scared her when they came into her room. Is it possible the release of this virus is connected to her emotional state?
      Marco: Yeah, more than possible, it's likely. Her medicine cabinet is basically a neon sign flashing borderline personality disorder. She's got cortisone creams for stress rashes. An assortment of your finer psyco-pharmaceuticals, Xanax, Prozac...
      Tom: We get it, Marco. She's a wreck.

    • Matthew: Vacation? For how long?
      Shawn: A month, maybe two, I don't know.
      Matthew: You think that's what the center, the movement, needs right now?
      Shawn: I don't know, Matthew, but I'm damned sure it's what I need right now.
      Matthew: I think you're going to have to settle for a long weekend. I hear Puget Sound is nice.
      Shawn: Okay, you're not hearing me.
      Matthew: I'm ignoring you, there's a difference.

    • Shawn: I'm not saying I can't do this, I will lead this movement. But Jordan just died and I need some time to get my head around that.
      Matthew: You're gonna have to grieve on the run, like the rest of us. It's called being a grown up.

    • Tom: Jean, it doesn't have to be like that. You want this to be over? It can be just find a deserted spot, pull over and wait for us to come to you.
      Jean: I don't need you. I'm taking care of it myself.
      Tom: What are you gonna do?
      Jean: I'm gonna end this before I kill anyone else!
      Tom: End what?
      Jean: This phonecall, this day, everything!

    • Nina: She's the only resident of Granite Pass Oregon, who can't be accounted for. So we've got two possibilities…
      Diana: Either she's immune to this virus, in which case we could study her, look for a cure…
      Tom: Or else, she's the carrier.
      Nina: Either way, your job is the same. Use whatever resources you need and find her.

    • Diana: She was quoting Revelations? Never a good sign, Tom.

    • Marco: So when Jean's blood gets going - when she's angry, confused, upset, whatever - a killer virus goes airborne.
      Tom: We're not far from her car now, Marco. Any advice on how to deal with her?
      Marco: Uh, don't piss her off.

    • Jean: (to Tom) I guess you thought those suits they had on would keep them safe, huh? Well you were wrong, okay? Nobody's safe! That's why I'm warning you. You stay away from me, ok? Just keep everyone away.

    • Marco: Wipe your feet.
      Tom: A killer airborne virus has been released and you're worried about muddy footprints.
      Marco: It's still somebody's home.

    • Truck Driver: (to Jean) If you're looking for salvation, you're not gonna find it there. What you wanna do is give yourself over to your true Lord and saviour. Purification day is coming. The signs are everywhere. Pestilence, plagues.

    • Shawn: I'm glad things are going so well, I am, but a week ago I was just some guy trying to beat the last level of Doom. I wasn't the Pope then and I'm not the Pope now.
      Matthew: Yes you are and you need to start getting used to it.

    • (Diane is reading a legal document when Marco enters the room)
      Diana: You wanna know why all lawyers are jerks? 'Cause they spend a lifetime reading this crap.
      Marco: What kind of crap specifically? I'm a pretty good interpreter.
      Diana: I have 24 hours to turn Maia's diary over to NTAC and not one legal option to get out of it.
      Marco: What are you going to do?
      Diana: Well, what NTAC wants, NTAC gets. But I have a nine year old daughter at home who's counting on me to protect her.
      Marco: Is there any way I can help?
      Diana: Yeah, you can slap me upside the head for mentioning the diary in the first place. It didn't save Collier's life and now it's making mine hell.
      Marco: How about I just make some fresh coffee instead?

    • Kyle: (to Tom) But Doctor Kyle Baldwin in that world you were vacationing in, came from your mind, right?
      Alana: Uh, actually it was my mind.
      Kyle: Right, but you created it using his memories.

    • Kyle: So let me see if I've got this straight. You two met, fell in love and spent eight years together in some kind of alternate reality. And now you're here with eight years of love and marriage under your belts in what to us was no time at all.
      Tom: Yeah, that, that about sums it up.
      (Kyle laughs)
      Kyle: I'll play along. But, if you two start calling each other honey bunny, I'm so outta here.
