Episode Quotes
Hiro: Ando, be more careful. You are like a hamster making a nest.

Nana: I know what it's like to lose someone you love--to wish that you had a piece of them, something solid to hold on to. Anybody try to steal my mom's piano, I'd feed 'em their teeth!

Bob: I want you to keep an eye on Claire.
Elle: It'd be easier without this thing on my arm. It itches like a mother.
Bob: And I thought my little girl was tough.
Elle: I am, Dad, but I was shot. And my body doesn't heal itself.

Claire: I've fallen 20 stories. Been stabbed in the head. Crashed a car at 70 miles an hour. I've even been on fire. But this hurts... more than any of that. And it's not getting any better. I've always gotten better no matter what, but this just keeps getting worse.

Monica: (to Micah about D.L.'s medal) I know what it's like to lose someone you love. To wish that you had a piece of them, something solid to hold onto. If anybody tried to steal my mom's piano, I'd feed them their teeth.

Micah: You're Saint Joan!
Monica: You really have to stop reading those comic books.

(Micah shuts off the street light)
Monica: How did you do that?
Micah: I told the lights I needed them to be off for a while.
Monica: You told 'em?
Micah: Yeah.

Claire: We can tell the world what they did. How they kidnapped me and murdered my father.
Elle: You have no proof. No one would believe you.
Claire: You're probably right. I guess I'm just gonna have to show them. (punches her hand through a window, shows it healing) I'll show everyone exactly what I can do. Once the secrets out, you won't be able to touch me or my family. You'll be the ones running.

Hiro: Adam Monroe killed my father, and for that he must pay.
Peter: I can't let you do that.
Hiro: Then you have chosen the wrong side.

Episode Goofs

Abilities Development

Adam Monroe/Claire Bennet: It's confirmed that decapitation will kill a regenerative.
