Opening Card: They came from the future. At first, they only watched. Arriving at key moments in human history. We called them Observers. But in 2015 they stopped watching... and seized control. Citizen uprisings proved bloody and futile. Those who survived became known as "Natives." In an attempt to show their allegiance, some Native factions became "Loyalists" and were marked by the Observers. The original FRINGE TEAM fought the invasion, but was quickly defeated. FRINGE DIVISION was allowed to continue at a reduce capacity, but only to police the Natives. The resistance was quickly overcome... or so they thought.
Simon Foster: Well, I'll be a toe on a foot in a grave.

Etta: We just removed you from amber, Dr. Bishop. You were inside twenty years.
Walter: Twenty years? It's no wonder I'm so hungry. Do you have anything to eat?
Walter: Have you seen it?
Simon Foster: Monkey feces? No. I cant say I've had the pleasure.
Walter: I wouldn't say that it was a pleasure.
Walter: I've eaten it once. It was sweeter than you'd think.
Simon Foster: Feces?
Walter: God, no. Brains. And LSD. I love LSD.
Simon Foster: Dr. Bishop, we're going to inject that solution into the base of your brain.
Walter: Oh, fun.
I am not a number, I am a free man!

Walter: These aren't the droids you're looking for.
This famous line is spoken by Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars IV: A New Hope, while mind-controlling a stormtrooper into ignoring him.
Walter: Like The Guns of Navarone.
