Eli is watching the Teneran kino footage of his grandson dedicating a school in his name when Rush comes to get some equations. He suggests that Eli find something more important to do, noting that none of his descendants were there. Rush says that given how widely the Tenerans spread across the galaxy, the odds are good they’ll meet them again...

Episode Quotes
Rush: Are you in a hurry to be somewhere?
Adam Brody: Well, no, but power reserves are still at 40%
Dale Volker: Bad as my grandfather. He was always filling his Buick at half a tank. Destiny's kind of doing the same hing. It just struck me as funny.
Rush: Oh, yeah, that is funny. That his life and the lives of those around him depended on making it to the next gas station. That's bloody hilarious, really.

Rush: So, please, let's not overreact.
Eli: How about let's not under-react?

Camille: This room needs more chairs.
Young: Here. Please, go ahead.
Camille: No, no, th--that' your...
Young: What am I, Captain Kirk? I need to stretch my legs anyway.
Camille: Thank you.
Rush: Don’t touch anything.

Rush: Well, fortunately, Eli has an idea. It's absolute insanity, and it's the only choice we've got.
Eli: Don't oversell it.

Eli: The only way to make sure the drones won't be waiting is to pick a star that Destiny wouldn't fly into in a million years.
Greer: No, don't--don't tell me. Death Star.
Eli: Close.

(seeing a ruined city)
Eli: Holy crap, we dialed Pittsburgh.

Young: Thing is, these people left for a reason. We don't know what.
Greer: Have you ever been to Pittsburgh?
2nd Lt. Vanessa James: Hey! I was born there.

Rush: Eli, what are you doing?
Eli: Helping Dr. Park?
Rush: Well, time to stop doing that. Rush out.
Eli: Don't leave me alone with him too long, please?

Eli: You're not wearing your suit.
Rush: Well, there's plenty of time before we reach the star. Plus, we can work better without them.
Eli: Yeah, But now I look ridiculous.
Rush: Yeah.

Greer: Look what I found.
Dale Volker: All the labels are worn off. We don't know what's in them, or how old they are...
Greer: We'll find out when we open 'em, okay?
Dale Volker: Mmm... botulism.

Greer: What kind of city doesn’t have a gun shop?
Adam Brody: Maybe they’re Canadian.
