Episode Quotes
Store Owner: You're a superhero! What do they call you?
Vince: The Cape
Store Owner: The Cape? Well, you'll work on it.

Vince: Don't play innocent with me, Chess.
Fleming: I'm just a businessman.
Vince: No, you are a psychopath.
Fleming: People in glass houses...
Vince: Get thrown out windows.

Orwell: We’ll never get that close again. If you weren’t poisoned, I could kill you.

Orwell: Fleming's already got the police department. If he gains control of the prisons, he'll have his police state. We have to stop him. Are you listening?
Vince: Off and on. I'm dying.

Raia: Max, what is that?
Max: Nightshade and jimson weed.
Raia: Nightshade's poison.
Max: Omar the Wise used to have a freak show in Santa Rio. Drank insecticide for his act. Always had nightshade on hand as an antidote to counter the effects.
Ruvi: That's completely nuts.
Max: Yes, it was. Omar died young.

Patrick Portman: What are you, some--some do-good vigilante? Some superhero?
Vince: I'm The Cape.
Patrick Portman: The Cape? You're not wearing a cape.
Vince: I'm aware of that.
Patrick Portman: No offense.
Vince: None taken.

Vince: What the hell do you want?
Max: Rollo made a cauliflower soup. The smell alone drove me away. He has a profound lack of talent in the kitchen.

Cain: You just don't know when to give up, do you?
Vince: It's my most annoying feature.
