  • Quotes

    • Diana: (dying) Daughter...
      Anna: You taught me everything you know, but you never learned half of what I know.
      Diana: You've just...doomed us all.

    • Diana: We must act immediately.
      Kyle: It's your call. You're the leader. What do you think?
      Erica: No. This involves all of us. It is all of our calls.
      Chad: We've come too far to turn back now.
      Jack: All my life, I turned to the sky to see God. Now I look at the sky, I see 29 ships. Beyond them, hundreds more. I want to look to the sky and see God again.
      Kyle: I'm with you.

    • (In Erica's dream)
      Anna: No one understands what it feels like to have the weight of an entire species on your shoulders. Every decision, every hard choice. No one except you. You understand. To survive, you must show no mercy, be void of any humanity...just like me.
      Erica: I am nothing like you.
      Anna: Yes, you are, Erica. You're exactly like me.

    • Anna: (To Lisa, after killing Diana) Now that's how you kill your mother!
