Micah: Are we ever gonna talk about it?
D.L.: Talk about what?
Micah: What we can do. Our powers. I just feel like we’re supposed to be fighting crime or something.
Hiro: More than anything, a hero must have hope.
Ando: Fine. You figure out how to get into Linderman's office, I will find hope.
Ando: You said I needed to find Hope. It’s a sign!
Hiro: It’s a coincidence.
Ando: How come whenever you want to do something, it’s our destiny. But when I want to do something, it’s not important.
Nathan: How can you be so cold?
Angela: Because I know you, Nathan. And under that gruff exterior, you're a sap.
Sylar: All this time I was trying to fight it, deny it. But there is no shame in having this ability, is there?
Mohinder: None whatsoever, it would be like denying you have brown eyes.
Mohinder: (closing voiceover) To survive in this world, we hold close to us those on whom we depend. We trust in them our hopes, our fears. But what happens when trust is lost? Where do we run, when things we believe in vanish before our eyes? When all seems lost, the future unknowable, our very existence in peril, all we can do is run.
