Alex: Better a fool who tries and fails than a coward who sits around and does nothing. We've been hanging out too much.
William: I'm trying to save you.
David: That's what I used to tell people on TV, usually accompanied by a 1-800 number.
William: Ancient cultures worshiped the symbol of Ouroboros. It's an image of a snake eating its own tail. Devouring itself. Compelled by a hunger it can't control.

Alex: Who the hell are you?
Michael: I'm the one who has been watching over you your entire life. Waiting for you to step up to the promise that's been woven into every ounce of your being by divine will. And here we are on the precipice, on the brink of everything we've been working for--struggling for--and you question my motives?
Gabriel: Of all the pleasure this world makes available to us, he chooses murder?
Michael: I'm just ensuring the natural order of things. And what's more natural than death?
