Episode Quotes
Interviewer: Let's talk a little more about your followers. What do you think draws them here to you?
Billy Grimm: They come because they want to belong. To be a part of the unconditional love, the acceptance that I offer. I offer them my family.
Interviewer: Billy, what do you say to critics who accuse you of preying on individuals at their most vulnerable?
Billy Grimm: I don't prey on them. I seek out no one. I hear from every tiny grim corner of the world. It is they are who are seeking. Seeking connection. Which I provide.

Skye: See, "delete" doesn't mean permanent if you know what you're doing. (Jeff stares) I used to work on a Bruckheimer show.
Jeff: Ah.
