Episode Quotes
(during sex)
Jalina: My master is Datak Tarr!
Datak: Wait wait wait wait. What do you think you're doing?
Jalina: Saying your name.
Datak: Well, I know who I am.
Jalina: I thought you'd like it.
Datak: Well, hearing my name over and over again... you think I'm some kind of egomaniac?
Jalina: No...
Datak: Good girl.

Yewll: There's two kinds of friends in this world. Kind that helps you hide a dead whore, and me.

Rafe: Books. You know, there was a point in history where very human on Earth thought paper and ink were becoming obsolete.
Datak: Humans are foolish, yes. For once I agree with you.

Yewll: You should be looking for a doctor. Specifically one with surgical skills.
Nolan: One like, I don't know, you, for example?
Yewll: Not the only doctor in Defiance.
Nolan: You are the biggest liar I know.
Yewll: Stop. You're making me blush.

Nolan: You know, ever since you've been released from Camp Reverie, you've been a little squirrely.
Yewll: I'm an Indogene. I'm squirrely by nature. In fact, I'm not even gonna charge you for this visit. How crazy is that? Whoo!

Christie: If that's how you feel about Castis, then why are you even in this bar? Why admire them? Why dress like them?
Mercado: Just because the asteroid killed the dinosaur doesn't mean the dinosaur can't pause and acknowledge the asteroid's beauty. It's in our nature to want to be other than we are. It's what makes humanity great. We are creatures of incredible curiosity. We envy the flight of birds, and we build wings. Born earthbound, we reach for the stars. Never be ashamed of trying to be better than what you are, and cherish the moments you get to spend in a place like this, You can be anything you want here. Be brave, be strong, confident. Every eye here is fixed upon you.
