As The Man


Bobby and Conner come back and tell The Man that things aren't going well. Most of the missing cases they've found involved kids that have been abducted by a parent in a divorce. The Man asks Conner what it's like to know there are parents that want their children that much. Conner hesitates and then insists that his dad would be there if he did, and The Man asks if he put up a fight when his mother kicked his father out. When the boy asks why his father didn't put up a fight, The Man says that he doesn't know but that it interests him that it's what Conner wants when his father won't do what it takes to come back...

Episode Quotes
Dillon: You asking me to do something when you don't even know what it means?
The Man: I'm asking you what you mean by it. "God." "Love." People use words all the time. Doesn't mean they agree on their meaning. It doesn't mean they've thought through what they mean when they use them.

The Man: No one can ever fully know the experience of another.
Cheryl: Do you have anything bad in your life, or are you just above it all? Free from pain.
The Man: Hmm. No.
Cheryl: I don't think I believe that.
The Man: I'm not here to compete in misery, Cheryl. I'd never win. You have a heart. Want to know this, this thing, this... unconditional love. It's a beautiful thing but it's a terrible burden.
Cheryl: What do you have?
The Man: Not that.

The Man: So you're avoiding God for fear of being told things you don't want to hear?
Henry: Who the hell wants God to tell them things they don't want to hear?
The Man: I've got a pretty good idea why you're not finding God.

Maria: I bet I can make you smile.
The Man: I bet you can. But that doesn't matter.
Maria: How can that not matter?
The Man: I'm not here to be happy.
Maria: What's the point of being here if you're not happy?
The Man: Don't you ever tired of it? Chasing happiness?
Maria: What else is there, seriously? What else is there for us?
The Man: Everything! You don't ever feel sad?
Maria: I do, but I don't wallow in it.
The Man: That's a part of life, too,
Maria: You're not a very nice man.
The Man: I'm not talking about what's nice or not nice. I'm talking about what is.

Melody: If I do this, I might change my mind.
The Man: That's always a risk. The question is, how much do you want and what do you want.
