Episode Quotes
Mohinder: (opening voiceover) Sometimes questions are more powerful than answers. How is this happening? What are they? Why them and not others? Why now? What does it all mean?

Matt: What are you? FBI? Huh? CIA?
Mr. Bennet: I'm not part of any organization that has initials.
Matt: Listen to me, whoever you think I am, believe me, I'm not him. I'm not... I'm not anyone.
Mr. Bennet: Oh, that's not true, you're someone. Someone very special.
Matt: Who are you people?
Mr. Bennet: Trying to hear my thoughts, Matt? Not with my friend here. He's special, too.

Mr. Bennet: (to Matt) Everything you see... by tomorrow, it won't matter.

Hiro: (in Japanese) I left messages in Japanese. I need to learn how to say "You're going to die in five weeks then New York will explode" in English.
Ando: (in English) "You are going to die in five weeks then New York will explode."

Niki: I'm not a whore.
Man: I think we've established what you are.

Mohinder: Your life may be in danger. I believe someone is targeting you.
Nathan: Can you be a little bit more specific? Twelve percent of the electorate strongly opposes me.

Peter: What if he can? Paint the future, I mean, stranger things, right?
Simone: No, that's about as strange as it gets.

Hiro: It's horrible. I'm a terrible person. But it was our last dollar.
Ando: It's genius. Do it again!
Hiro: No! It's cheating.
Ando: Is Peter Parker cheating when he sells pictures of Spider-Man?
Hiro: No.
Ando: All heroes have a system. This is our system.

Niki: I'm having these violent dreams, I mean, really violent where I'm tearing people apart. But it's not me, I mean, it's someone else... in me... with me.

Simone: You think you can save us all by shooting up?
Isaac: I can save everybody. I'm gonna be a hero.

Zach: Look, you said you had a hole in your head, maybe when they pulled out whatever was in there something like rebooted or whatever.
Claire: I'm not a hard drive.
Zach: Oh, you're little Miss Miracle-Gro.
Claire: Don't ever call me that again.

Niki: I don't have a husband. He left.
Nathan: For another woman?
Niki: I wish.
Nathan: Man?
Niki: (laughing) I would take that one too.

Hiro: All of this is wrong. We shouldn't be using my powers for personal gain. We're supposed to be saving the world.
Ando Masahashi: We will. But there's no law against looking good while we do it, is there? You said you wanted a costume. Now you have one.

High Roller: See, I had three aces at that poker table. Next thing I know, you two have them.
Hiro: (in Japanese) What is he saying?
Ando Masahashi: (in Japanese) Relax. I have it covered. (in English) You better back off! My friend has very big power! Can take you all out! Make you wish you never been born!
(Hiro is knocked out with one punch to Ando's dismay)

Thug: How are you gonna explain to your son what happened to him when you didn't honor your agreement? You think about that, Niki.
Niki: Niki's not here right now. (Niki proceeds to beat up the thug) If you threaten our son again, I'm going to put my heel through your skull. Do you understand?

Mohinder: (to Peter) Look, I'm not trying to discount your experience. It's just a week ago, I was in my own country, a respected professor. Now you want me to stalk a heroin addict who allegedly paints the fu-ture...

Claire: You're just gonna keep at it, aren't you?
Brody: You should let it go, Claire. Nothing you can do about it.
Claire: I can do this. (drives into a wall)

Hiro: Peter Petrelli.
Peter: How is this happening?
Hiro: I'm sorry if I scared you. You look different without your scar.
Peter: I don't know you, buddy.
Hiro: Not yet. My name is Hiro Nakamura. I'm from the future. I have a message for you...

Episode Goofs
The picture of Mohinder's father has changed on the back of the book. It's unknown whether this was on purpose as part of the plot, or if it was a simple character change.

Cultural References
The scene with Hiro and Ando riding down the escalator is a reference to the movie Rain Man.

One of the casinos that Hiro and Ando visit is the Montecito, the same fictional casino where fellow NBC series Las Vegas takes place.

Zach: No, you're Little Miss Miracle Grow.

"Little Miss Miracle" is a name often given to children who survive deadly situations, from accidents to illnesses.

Miracle Grow is a brand of fertilizer that claims to rapidly grow plants, similar to Claire's ability to regenerate rapidly.

Abilities Development
Hiro Nakamura: Like Hiro, Future Hiro is able to freeze time and walk around while time is frozen.
Niki Sanders: Niki's other personality has superhuman strength.
Peter Petrelli: Further evidence is given that Peter is able to absorb abilites that he is near to -- while with Future Hiro, Peter is able to walk around while time is frozen just like Future Hiro can.
The Haitian: The Haitian can both wipe people's memories as well as block abilities.
