Episode Quotes
Supergirl: We all make mistakes, have regrets from our past, things we wish we could change. In my case, my biggest regret is not being there for you. I know that my choices may have hurt you in ways I can never understand... but, if you're willing, I'd like to try and make things right between us. It won't be easy. Nothing worthwhile ever is. But life is short. And when all is said and done, there is nothing more important than family. All my love, Mom.

Cat: Miranda Crane is in town. She is a lightning rod for bigots, hippies, and aliens, and yes, that is the order in which I detest them.

Cat: And Ker-rah? I'm going to make your life hell.
Kara: It's worth it. Family always is.

Kara: James, these pictures are amazing.
James: Well, thank you. Well, near-death experiences do make me shutter-happy, so... do you see anything?

Hank: We fought back. We'd known war. But not like this. White Martians had been toiling underground, building weapons of death. Fire traps. Their technology overwhelmed us. There was no honor in how they fought. They herded us into camps. I swore no matter what, I would protect my family. We would survive. But when we got through the gates, they took the women and children. Men were forced into labor. The others went to the furnace. My wife and daughters burned. I escaped. I survived. To my great shame. I will hear my family's screams until the day I die.

Cat: I never got to put a picture that you'd drawn on the fridge. I never got to tell you stories. And I never got to teach you how not to be afraid of the world. And I never got to tell you how amazing I think you are. I never got to be your mom. But I am your biggest fan, Adam. And I'm so, so sad that I didn't get to see you grow up.

Hank: I'm going to find its lair. And when I do, I will drop this human coat I wear. I won't freeze. I will break its body in half and bury it I the dry sand.
Alex: You are not a murderer.
Hank: You don't know me. I am 317 years old, I can wear any face I choose. I speak languages your mouth can't even form. You know nothing about me.

Alex: Hank, you all right?
Hank: I'm in the sewer, Danvers. Everything is just peachy.

White Martian: The desert. It reminds me of home. Come now so I can water the ground with your blood, J'onn J'onzz.

Supergirl: We don’t choose. We fight.

Supergirl: I lost everything. Everyone. It makes a hole in your heart. But you can't fall into it.. You have to fill it. You have to fight. Do not throw away who you are. If you do, that thing wins. The Last son of Mars dies, even if you're still standing.

Kara: I don’t' know if I can do this. I haven't been on a real date in like forever.
Alex: You incinerate robots and you prevent buildings from collapsing. You can handle a date.
