Episode Quotes
Joe: Monarch butterflies aren't even in season. They shouldn't be anywhere near Chester's Mill this time of year.
Norrie: Maybe it's trying to tell us that the dome's just a cocoon, and when it finally goes away, we'll all get to be something new.
Joe: You realize that most caterpillars are actually eaten before they turn into butterflies?

Dodee: Can I say something, Phil?
Phil: Anything in the whole world.
Dodee: I hate you.
Phil: Yeah?
Dodee: Mm-hmm.
Phil: I hate you, too.

Norrie: How...?
Joe: W-when we touched, we didn't have the seizures.
Norrie: More importantly, we didn't die.

Cultural References
Phil: I've been listening to her E.T.-phone-home thing, but the military broadcasts dropped off last night so all we've been getting are random numbers and crap.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is a 1982 movie featuring a small alien creature, an "E.T.," who is stranded on Earth and is adopted by a local boy.
