Samuel watches Chandra's tape that explains how the power of certain evolved humans can increase exponentially in the presence of more evolved humans. He smiles as the baby begins to unleash waves of seismic power. Hiro pounds on the trailer door and demands that Samuel come out. He does so and Hiro asks where and when Charlie is. Samuel tells him that there are more pressing matters and the film has revealed his destiny, and the destiny of the carnival. He refuses to tell Hiro where Charlie is, and dares him to kill him.

Episode Quotes
Lauren Gilmore: Hmm, didn't peg you for a yam man.
Noah: Oh, yeah. Big yam man.

Lauren Gilmore: So, Sandra, how did you and Doug meet?
Sandra Bennet: Mmm, well...
Doug Douglas: Can I?
Sandra Bennet: Please.
Doug Douglas: It was love at first sight. For Mr. Muggles and Miss Lovegood, that is. We met at the groomer. My little angel wouldn't stop barking until they put her cage right next to his. Is that right, Sandy?
Claire: (mouthing) Nasty.

Sandra Bennet: Primatech. Is that the paper company or that other thing?"
Lauren Gilmore: Oh, you know about that other thing."
Sandra Bennet: Yes, dear. A memory can be erased only so many times.

Peter: Do you have a soul?
Sylar: Come on, buddy. That's the best you've got? No big speeches about hope. Triumph of the human spirit?
Peter: Why don't you let me out of this chair and find out.
Sylar: (to Angela) And you... you have raised the evil incarnate bar to an entirely new level. Thank you for giving me something to strive for.

Sylar: All this talk of souls and spirits sends my head spinning. I am not a religious man. But there is one thing I do believe in. Blood.

Sandra Bennet: Never a dull moment, Noah.
Noah: Not if I can help it.
