Episode Quotes
Russ Landry: I gave up my life for your dreams!
Emmet: I'm going. I'm going. You want to see something extraordinary, come with me. If not, I understand.

Emmet: In the Boiuna, the line that we thought existed between life and death--it blurs. You think of the things that we've seen. Ghosts and the spirits and magic--souls insisting on life when they should be gone. What if everything we've seen--what if it all comes... from one... Source?

Lena: Can I trust you?
Jonas Beckett: Me? Sure. I mean, I can't vouch for the six cameras looking at us right now...

Emmet: No, these cameras--they gave me a second shot at life. Made the world our family.
Rosetta "Rabbit" Fischer: There's magic out there.
Emmet: Oh. There sure as hell was.

Emmet: There's life, death... but out here, there's that third option. And what if that death was never meant to be final. What it's more like a window. Except that that window is open out here.

Cultural References
Emmet: Till a voice, as bad as Conscience, rang interminable changes
On one everlasting Whisper day and night repeated--so:
Something hidden. Go and find it. Go and look behind the Ranges--
Something lost behind the Ranges. Lost and waiting for you. Go!

Emmet quotes from Rudyard Kipling's poem "The Explorer" (1898).

Manny: It was--it was cute in Lion King.

In The Lion King (1994), Simba is taught how to eat bugs by Pumbaa and Timon.
