Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - The Final Season (Poster 2).jpg


Season One

Episode 1.01: Pilot

"What changed?"
"Everything's changing. A little while ago, most people went to bed thinking that the craziest thing in the world was a billionaire in a flying metal suit. Then aliens invaded New York and were beaten back by, among others, a giant green monster, a costumed hero from the 50's, and a god."
"I don't think Thor's technically a god."
"Well, you haven't been near his arms."
Grant Ward and Maria Hill[src]
"Welcome to level 7. Sorry, that corner was really dark and I couldn't help myself. I think there's a bulb out."
Phil Coulson[src]
"Agent Hill did a very detailed assessment of your last three missions. Combat, top grades. Espionage, she gave you the highest marks since Romanoff. Under people skills she drew a... I think it's a little poop with knives sticking out of it."
"That's bad, right?"
Phil Coulson and Grant Ward[src]
"How will you come at us? From the air? From the ground? How will you silence us this time? How can you? The truth is in the wind. It's everywhere. You cannot stop the rising tide. You will not find us. You will never see our faces but rest assured—we will rise against those who shield us from the truth. And nothing--nothing can stop us in the... (Coulson and Ward break in) Hey. What up?"

Episode 1.02: 0-8-4

"That's where the 0-8-4 was reported."
"And an 0-8-4 is...?"
"An object of unknown origin. Kind of like you. Team goes in, determines if it's useful or if it poses a threat. Last one turned out to be pretty interesting."
"And what was the last one?"
"A hammer."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]
"Are you mental? I did explain what I meant using the Queen's bloody English!"
"I use normal English. Words like "duck" and "run" and "might blow us to pieces"."
"Oh. Oh!. Well, congratulations, Agent Ward. you managed to string three words together in a sentence."
Leo Fitz and Grant Ward[src]
"Oh, Phil. You're not even aware. Your renewed idealism, your collectibles, your airborne man cave, surrounding yourself with young, attractive agents—you're having a mid-life crisis."
"More of an afterlife thing, really."
"And I'm not even going to mention the red Corvette."
"Her name is Lola."
"Of course it is."
Camilla Reyes and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 1.03: The Asset

"He's addicted to exploiting opportunities. He never gives a thought to the friends, ecosystems, future generations left ruined in his wake."
"Like Agents Fitz and Simmons, your former students? I've got them in my ear right now, telling me you're not a bad guy. We could've worked with you on this."
"S.H.I.E.L.D.? S.H.I.E.L.D. is just as guilty of the same thing! Experimentation without thought of consequence! Your search for an unlimited power source brought an alien invasion."
"Fair point."
Franklin Hall and Phil Coulson[src]
"I thought she was done for, but she just sweet-talked her way into Quinn's office."
"How'd she manage that?"
"Pfft, she probably used her... (realizes Simmons and May are glaring at him) her... uh... boobs."
Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz[src]
"S.H.I.E.L.D.'s against everything you stand for. They're big brother."
"Maybe, but they're the nice big brother who stands up for his helpless little brother when he's getting beat up because he ate a piece of cake that he wasn't... you know, you kidnapped a person!"
Ian Quinn and Skye[src]

Episode 1.04: Eye-Spy

"You seen Skye?"
"Not since weapons training."
"She stop saying "bang" when she pulls the trigger?"
"Mostly. Now, if she can just learn the difference between the safety release and the magazine release, we'll be making real progress."
Phil Coulson and Grant Ward[src]
"Bus to Short Bus"
"Go for Short Bus."
"Next time, I'll decide what we call ourselves, okay?"
Melinda May, Grant Ward and Phil Coulson[src]
"I called with an equally pressing question for you, my S.O... What are we supposed to do if we have to pee?"
"You broke protocol because you needed a bathroom break."
"It was a really, really long drive and everyone's nervous."
"There's a container at the bottom of the blue chest."
"Bottom of the blue chest."
(Simmons and Fitz go digging and pulls out an empty water bottle. She gives Skye a look)
"Not the *water bottle*."
"That's the one."
"Did you never learn the thing where boy parts and girl parts are different, and our parts aren't penises!"
"Coulson and I are trying to find a dangerous criminal, if there's nothing else pressing..."
"One more thing, Fitz wants to know if you packed any snacks."
"I'm feeling a bit peckish."
"Ah, Hello, hello? He hung *up*!"
Skye, Grant Ward and Leo Fitz[src]
"Why are you doing this? Why are you helping me? Where's the 'I told you so'?"
"That's not me anymore."
Akela Amador and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 1.05: Girl in the Flower Dress

"Did you just give me a compliment?"
"I--no, I made a comment."
"A kind one. Did it physically hurt to do that? Do you need an ice pack?"
(Ward smiles)"
Wow! A compliment and a smile."
Skye and Grant Ward[src]
"Poor little Chan Ho Yin may have believed your lies, but not Scorch."
"Ah, crap. They gave him a name."
Chan Ho Yin, Melinda May and Phil Coulson[src]
"Go ahead, say it."
"I don't do petty."
" But you called it. I trusted my gut even though you said she was a risk."
"When someone breaks into my house, I usually don't invite them to stay. But that's me."
"That's me too. Then that alien staff when through my heart."
"Sure it didn't go through the brain?"
"You really don't do comforting either do you?"
Phil Coulson and Melinda May[src]

Episode 1.06: FZZT

"Here's the new Night-Night pistol."
(Ward tries it out)
"Sorry, Fitz. It's close, but it's just not right."
"'Cause agent Coulson had no problems."
"It's an ounce too heavy."
"An ounce? Seriously?"
"It's the difference between success and failure. When you're on a rooftop with a 15-mile-an-hour wind, Your target is 500 yards away..."
"Yeah, but we do have a rifle."
"Lose the ounce."
(Ward leaves)
"Yeah, okay. On it. "Lose the ounce"."
(Imitating Ward) "I'm Agent Grant Ward, and I can shoot the legs off a flea from 500 yards, as long as it's not windy."
(Skye laughs and Simmons Enters the Lab)
"So, Ward was here? Let me guess, the night-night pistol again?"
"Yeah, and he said it was off by an ounce."
"Of course he did. (Imitating Ward) I'm Agent Grant Ward, and I could rupture your spleen with my left pinky... blindfolded!"
Leo Fitz, Grant Ward, Skye and Jemma Simmons[src]
"Phys-Ed teacher at the local high school and varsity baseball coach and troop leader and volunteer firefighter. This guy makes Captain America look like "The Dude". The Big Lebowski? (more blank stares) Seriously?"
"What's Fitz doing over there?"
"He detected a strange energy coming off the body."
"It's the smell!"
"There's no shame in it Fitz, it's perfectly natural to be afraid."
"No, the only thing I'm afraid of is putrid decaying flesh corrupting my pristine workspace! Do you remember what happened the last time you brought a dead thing into the lab?"
"Oh not the stupid cat again, and it's our lab, not yours!"
"No, the cat. Tell him about the cat! You left it's liver next to my lunch!"
Phil Coulson, Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz[src]
"Pasty? Oh, really? Well since when did you become so sun-kissed? Because I'm pretty sure that every minute of every day, you've been stuck in a lab right beside me. At the Academy, at Sci-Ops, this plane! You've been beside me the whole damn time."
Leo Fitz[src]
"That's the best you could come up with, you got a bad connection?"
"I was pressed for time."
"Bold move. You know our chat wasn't exactly private."
"They never are."
"I don't know what happened to you in New York, if you really flat-lined or that's just what they tell us when we reach level 7; but whatever did happen doesn't give you license to disobey a direct order from HQ. You keep pulling stunts like that, someone might decide to take this little dream team away from you."
"I'd like to see them try."
"That doesn't sound like the Phil Coulson I used to know."
"No, I suppose it doesn't. Get used to it."
Felix Blake and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 1.07: The Hub

"What the hell?! Who designed this?! And in the Hub, of all places!"
Leo Fitz[src]
"You... Have a gorgeous head, don't you? I like men who are about my height but heavier than me."
Jemma Simmons[src]
""What the hell?"
"There are dogs tracking us, and you bring a prosciutto sandwich."
"I can't believe you just did that."
"This is a mission, not a picnic."
"Oh, I'm well aware it's not a picnic, Mr. Save the Day."
"What's that supposed to mean?"
"Oh, come on. You obviously get off on it; being the guy who gets to throw the last punch, who always swoops in to save the girl. And, now you've destroyed the world's most dangerous sandwich. Congratulations."
Leo Fitz and Grant Ward[src]
"How long can you hold your breath underwater?"
"I don't know."
"Are you familiar with the term slam and cram?"
"No and I don't think I want to be."
Leo Fitz and Grant Ward[src]
"What did I tell you?"
"You told me to trust the system. And the system sent Ward and Fitz in there to die."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]
"Okay, let's see. Okay, we have two guards on the west wall. Both carrying automatic weapons. (another figure appears on Fitz's screen) Correction: There are now three guards. We have three guards now. (the figures start fighting) Oh my God, oh my God... Ward, he's attacking the others! He's coming straight for us! Ward? (looks behind him, and finally realizes that Ward is gone) What?"
(Ward comes out of the door) Hurry. Inside."
"Ahh. That makes sense now."
Leo Fitz and Grant Ward[src]

Episode 1.08: The Well

"In ancient times, people believe the heavens were filled with gods and monsters and magical worlds. Then, as time passed, those beliefs faded into myth and folklore. But now we know the stories are true. Other worlds, with names like Asgard, do exist. And beings once revered as gods, like Thor, have returned, leaving us with more questions, and... an enormous mess to clean up."
Jemma Simmons[src]
"You guys may think it's old news, but it's new... news to everybody else. So, Asgardians are aliens from another planet that visited us thousands years ago?"
"Or more."
"And because we couldn't understand aliens, we thought they were gods?"
"That's where our Norse mythology comes from."
"That's too crazy. Do you think other deities are aliens, too? Vishnu for sure, right?"
"You know, it'd be nice, if for once, Thor and his people sent down the God of Cleaning Up After Yourself. They probably have a magic broom for this kind of thing."
Skye and Phil Coulson[src]
"I can't think of a single time when anything alien in human hands ended well."
"Wouldn't mind getting my human hands on Thor. He's so dreamy."
"Sure, he's handsome, but..."
"No, he's dreamy."
Phil Coulson, Skye and Melinda May[src]
"The memory... Was it about your brother?"
"Drop it."
"Ward, if you ever need me, I am here-"
"-To talk. Because that's what you do. You talk, and talk. Don't you ever get tired of hearing your own voice?!"
Skye and Grant Ward[src]
"Do you know Thor?"
"Oh, sure, spent all my days palling around with the future Prince of Asgard. No, I don't know Thor. I was a mason."
Phil Coulson and Elliot Randolph[src]

Episode 1.09: Repairs

"To conduct an index asset evaluation and intake."
"Does that mean we talk to her and see if she has powers?"
"Well that needs a better name. Less IRS, more... better. Something like "the welcome wagon"."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]
"No! You do not touch that! Two semesters minimum of holographic engineering before you touch this!"
"All right, All right. I get it. I didn't go to your stupid S.H.I.E.L.D. Hogwarts, or whatever."
Leo Fitz and Skye[src]
"I'll lose the tie. If she is telekinetic, I don't want to have a noose around my neck."
Phil Coulson[src]
"You screamed like a girl."
"I am a girl!"
Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons[src]
"I don't mean to scare you, I just need to use you as bait."
"Well, that's comforting."
Melinda May and Hannah Hutchins[src]
"The memory... Was it about your brother?"
"Drop it."
"Ward, if you ever need me, I am here-"
"-To talk. Because that's what you do. You talk, and talk. Don't you ever get tired of hearing your own voice?!"
Skye and Grant Ward[src]
""It's not funny. I was sleeping peacefully. Very clever, Simmons."
"I-I didn't do it!"
"Oh, well Ward. I don't appreciate-"
"Don't look at me!"
"Ok, then Skye."
"Well who then? The bunks should be off limits! No, don't laugh! Because I know it was one of you!""
Leo Fitz, Jemma Simmons, Grant Ward, and Skye[src]

Episode 1.10: The Bridge

"Edison Po, former Marine, expert in tactics and rapid response. Fell off the grid in '08, reappeared 18 months ago at a diner in Boston."
"Where he stabbed a friend's eyes out."
"With a steak knife and finished his meal."
"That's funny. Po doesn't look crazy. I'm kidding. The guy's a walking mug shot."
Phil Coulson, Grant Ward and Skye[src]
"They tried to take it off of me at the sci-ops facility. Realized they couldn't do it without killing me."
"I'm afraid we're terribly curious. How did they stabilize the Extremis in you?"
"And keep you from exploding?"
"Oh, that wasn't them. That was you two."
"Come again?"
"What's that?"
"Your gun. It somehow froze me right at the moment I was about to explode., helped my body absorb the serum, stabilize. Your weapon saved my life."
"All that, and it didn't even leave a scar, so..."
"Well, I..."
"Well, I should think not."
"Yeah, we couldn't have that, could we? It would be a shame if, especially if you're so, well, formed and symmetrical. (to Leo) Wh-when did you stop talking?"
"About three embarrassing sentences ago."
Mike Peterson, Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz[src]
"Not sure why you wanted to go with the lottery story, sir. It's a tough sell."
"Exactly. Nothing makes people more suspicious than a handsome man offering them free money."
Grant Ward and Phil Coulson[src]
"We want to know about the day after you died."

Episode 1.11: The Magical Place

"I know you don't want to believe it, but you can't tell me nothing makes you doubt, makes you wonder what happened in Tahiti."
"It's a magical place. I keep saying that."
" Don't you want to know why?"
Raina and Phil Coulson[src]
"You're in a lot of trouble, Mr. Rathman."
"Who the hell are you?"
(Menacing) Agent Melinda May. With S.H.I.E.L.D.."
Skye and Lloyd Rathman[src]
"Evening, Doctor."
"Agent Coulson."
"You weren't operating on my heart. I know about Tahiti."
"I was afraid this day would come."
"Because of what I'd do?"
"Because of what I've done. After New York, you weren't dead for 8 seconds or 40 seconds or whatever they put in your file. You were dead for... days."
"That's impossible."
"It should be."
Phil Coulson and J. Streiten[src]
"I heard what you did for me. I think it's time that we remove this. (Talks to her wrist binder) Disengage bracelet." (Bracket comes off)
"Are you kidding me?"
"I thought you'd like that."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]

Episode 1.12: Seeds

"Is Science & Technology what you imagined, Agent Ward?"
"Yep - no uniforms, no rope course, no defined muscularity on anyone."
"No marching in place, no IQs in double digits."
Leo Fitz and Grant Ward[src]
"You and Skye get comfortable with the students see if you can get them gossiping. Skye looks young enough to blend in."
(Slightly offended) "You're not exactly 'Old Man River' and Fitz looks younger than us."
"Time will come when you won't make fun of me for that. You'll be jealous. You'll be jealous, wrinkly, old hags."
Grant Ward, Skye and Leo Fitz[src]
"We were headed into the Hunan province of China.A senior agent had called in an 0-8-4. An object of unknown origin."
"We've dealt with those before."
"He said the entire village had died trying to protect this one. Avery and I were just fresh out of the Academy. And there was five of us just running the back end, until we lost communication with the first team. We went searching. We found the senior agent under a bridge. He he managed to escape with a gunshot wound to the neck, but he bled out. He was still holding on to the 0-8-4. Poor thing was covered in blood. We thought she was dead, too, but sh-she was just asleep in the dead agent's arms."
(Stunned) The baby? The girl was the 0-8-4?"
Richard Lumley and Phil Coulson[src]
"Agent Phil Coulson with SHIELD. We've never actually met, but I'm familiar with your work - all of it."
"So, this is a "getting to know you" call?"
"No, just a message that the first time your aircraft drifts over any country allied with SHIELD, we will shoot you out of the sky."
"So this is a courtesy call. Well, thank you, Agent Coulson. And I have a message for you. The Clairvoyant told me to say hello."
Phil Coulson and Ian Quinn[src]
"That's the thing about Skye. What I told her shattered her world. Her lifelong search led to stories of murder, and now it's too difficult to continue. Her search is over. Her story ends here. But you know what she said?"
"Tell me."
"She said no... her story started here."
Phil Coulson and Melinda May[src]

Episode 1.13: T.R.A.C.K.S.

"So are we British or American?"
"Does it matter?"
"Well we're traveling together, we should at least be from the same country. How's your Scottish accent?"
(In a very bad Scottish accent) I don't know. You tell me how great it is, laddie."
(in a flawless American accent) American then. That's a better idea."
"Oh. That was really good."
"I used to watch a lot of American TV growing up. Some of it's quite good. Lots of nice teeth."
Leo Fitz and Skye[src]
"I'm getting into character. My undercover persona harbors some residual resentment to her absent American father. Blames him for not being there when her mom died. So I apologize in advance if I come off a little cold."
"You think all that back story's necessary?"
"Past events, like that unfortunate incident at the Hub, have shown me that I'm *not* good at improvisation."
Jemma Simmons and Phil Coulson[src]
"All mom ever wanted was your love. To be with you! In our two-story Victorian home in the Cotswolds! But could you even give her a moment, what with your banking job requiring you to travel to the States from Tuesday to Saturday every other week? No! You may not have had any time for her, but you had time for your work... and your prostitutes!"
"Prostitutes, plural?"
Jemma Simmons and Phil Coulson[src]
"Uh, sir? This probably isn't the best time, but what May told you I would have preferred it to stay between me and her."
"Well, "it" is happening on my bus, amongst members of my team."
"No, we've never... done - It's never happened on the bus, sir."
"You want to do this now? Okay. What you're doing is against protocol, so if you endanger an operation or if anyone gets hurt, I'll reassign you to Barrow, Alaska, and you'll spend the rest of your years pulling the night shift guarding Blonsky's cryo-cell. Am I clear? (Looks at Ward's face) I'll take that as a yes. And if it's really just sex, Ward you should get more comfortable using the word."
Grant Ward and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 1.14: T.A.H.I.T.I.

"The shots perforated her stomach and penetrated the large and small intestines. We resected what we could, but - there's been too much damage."
"So what's next?"
"We can keep her comfortable, but you'll need to make a decision on whether or not you want to keep her on life support."
"You're saying there's nothing to be done?"
"I'm saying you need to call her family. Get them here as soon as possible."
"*We're* her family."
"In that case, I'm very sorry."
Jazuat and Phil Coulson[src]
"Garrett? What the hell are you doing here?"
"Well, as opposed to the Level 8 jackass I'm staring at, I still follow orders."
"You're the worst at following orders."
Phil Coulson and John Garrett[src]
"Tell us about Cybertek and the Deathlok program?"
"Catchy right? Sounds like some wrestler from the 80's. What is it really?"
"Those are dangerous waters, and the last agent that waded into them wound up with two in the stomach.
"(Garrett smacks him)
"So... She's still alive?"
"Yeah. And you better hope she stays that way."
"Is that why you shot Skye? Because she saw what Cybertek delivered?"
"No. I shot Skye because that's what the Clairvoyant told me to do."
John Garrett, Phil Coulson and Ian Quinn[src]
"No, don't give it to her! The drug--They can't give it to her!"
Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 1.15: Yes Men

"I don't know where director Fury is. Don't be so shocked. For a quiet guy you make a lot of noise. How many favors have you called in?"
"Clearly not enough."
"Something I can help you with?"
"Fine, but Fury is a high level agent who is off grid. You don't find him unless he wants to find you. You did something like that once too. Remember? I never asked you. How was Tahiti?"
"It sucked."
Jasper Sitwell and Phil Coulson[src]
"You've visited other realms, seen different species, aliens. Have you ever encountered any that were blue?"
"Yes, of course."
"Which ones?"
"Uh, Interdites, Levians, Pheragots, Kree, Sarks, Centaurians. The Frost Giants tried to conquer your Earth a millennia ago, but Asgard drove them away."
"Oh. Well, thanks for that."
Phil Coulson and Sif[src]
"She bends and shapes the will of men for her own purposes."
"Only men. Her powers don't work on women?"
"No. Men have an inherent weakness we do not share."
"I can't imagine what she's talking about."
Sif, Melinda May and Leo Fitz[src]
"And women can rule your land, can they not?"
"You'd be the first."
"Yes, I will."
Lorelei and Rooster[src]
"Ward won't kill me."
"Do not let your feelings cloud your judgement."
"I'm not. He might *try* to kill me. But he won't."
Melinda May and Sif[src]

Episode 1.16: End of the Beginning

"You really think the Clairvoyant was on the index?"
"Rejected off the index. Possibly. Just hope it's not the amazing Kreskin. (Chuckles) I used to love that guy."
Antoine Triplett and John Garrett[src]
"You a Scorpio? I was just wondering why our newest agent paired the two of us together. Must have thought we were compatible in some way."
"It was random, Blake."
"You seem like a Scorpio."
"You don't believe in the Clairvoyant, but you believe in astrology?"
Felix Blake and Melinda May[src]
"Ward said that the Clairvoyant knew how to push all the right buttons."
"Raina did that to me, too."
"Did she mention your father's death? (Gesturing to a file on a tablet) Your psych evaluation called it "a defining moment". These aren't just personality tests. They're surveillance on every agent pictures, stats, where you've been stationed, who you'd visit, where you'd like to eat."
"Dinners at the Richmond. He's been monitoring us. Think about it. The Clairvoyant only knew you'd be at Quinn's villa..."
"After I dropped a tracker. And the only thing he's had trouble seeing is what happened to you after you died."
"Because Director Fury wouldn't release that file to anyone."
"The Clairvoyant doesn't have abilities. He has security clearance. He's an agent of SHIELD."
Skye and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 1.17: Turn, Turn, Turn

"Jemma. Thank God you're still alive."
"What? What's wrong?"
"The Hub still secure? Are you with your team? Get somewhere safe and lock the door."
"What's happening?"
"Have your commander report that the academy is under siege. We don't know how long HYDRA's been inside S.H.I.E.L.D. But they are taking control!"
"HYDRA? What? Where?"
"Everywhere? Among us! If you survive, you know where to find me. Jemma, don't trust anyone!"
Anne Weaver and Jemma Simmons[src]
"Cut off a head, two more will take its place."
"Is it a head? I thought it was a limb."
" No, no, no, it's a head."
"It's a head"
Phil Coulson, John Garrett and Leo Fitz[src]
"Are you mad? How can you be saying this?"
"Hydra won't show mercy. Neither can we."
"There is no way Coulson is HYDRA! He is a good man, a friend!"
"He's a liar! Agent Blake came to me with his suspicions - that Coulson and the other level eights were involved in some sort of conspiracy. Then Coulson sent him on an op that put him in the I.C.U."
"Coulson is not capable of what you're insinuating."
Jemma Simmons and Victoria Hand[src]
"Captain America has defeated the Helicarriers at the Triskelion. But his status his unknown."
"And S.H.I.E.L.D. has fallen."
"HYDRA factions have taken control of our east African headquarters and the treehouse. And those are just the ones we know of."
"It's gonna be a scramble, a power grab."
"I'll head to the fridge. At least that facility is secure."
Victoria Hand and Phil Coulson[src]
"Take Agent Garrett into custody! He's the murderer they call the "Clairvoyant". He's a traitor!"
"Gentlemen, I know Agent Sitwell was in charge of filling your ranks, so at least a few of you know what to do in this situation...any time boys. Hail HYDRA."
Phil Coulson and John Garrett[src]

Episode 1.18: Providence

"Find everything you can on our team - all personal records, photos, anything that proves we exist - then erase it."
"Uh, that's kind of the nuclear option."
"It's *our* only option. Every government agency in the world will be on our ass. We need to vanish."
"Okay. But... once that's done, it can't be undone. We'll be ghosts. Not agents of S.H.I.E.l.D., just agents of... nothing."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]
"Hail Hydra!"
"All right, all right, put your arms down, Kaminsky. You look like a West Texas cheerleader at a pep rally."
Kaminsky and John Garrett.[src]
"You're not her type."
"I'm everyone's type."
Raina and Grant Ward[src]
"There's got to be something here! This means something! This has to mean something. The world needs us! HYDRA is out there. We cannot let them win! We cannot let them define us! Do you understand that? We are not agents of nothing, we are agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and that still carries weight! It has to carry weight. After everything we've been through, that carries weight!"
Phil Coulson[src]
"What's with the windows?"
"Supposed to make the isolation more bearable. Every day of the week, different view. Wednesday's pretty terrific if you like topless beaches."
Phil Coulson and Eric Koenig[src]

Episode 1.19: The Only Light in the Darkness

"As soon as I had the upper hand, I put two in the back of his head."
"One for me, one from you."
"I would have emptied the mag."
Grant Ward, Leo Fitz and Antoine Triplett[src]
"Just gonna need you guys to answer a few questions, a few psychoanalytic, non sequitur questions."
"A lie detector."
"*The* lie detector, Agent Coulson. This baby measures galvanic skin response, oxygen consumption, micro-expressions, biofeedback brain waves, pupil dilation, voice biometrics - 96 variables in all. Fury designed this himself. He wanted a lie detector Romanoff couldn't beat."
"Did she?"
"Like Fury would tell!"
Eric Koenig, Phil Coulson and Grant Ward[src]
"Mr. Daniels, we don't want to hurt you. We need to take you in, for your safety and the safety of others."
"It was you! You took me there! They did things to me there!"
"They were trying to contain you."
"No! They were trying to make me stronger. And they did."
Phil Coulson and Marcus Daniels[src]
"You're not gonna take her out, are you?"
"No, mom, I just wanna talk."
"Good. I've always liked Maria."
Lian May and Melinda May[src]

Episode 1.20: Nothing Personal

"Yeah, it went as expected. S.H.I.E.L.D. implodes, and everyone wants answers. The CIA, NSA, NRO them I can handle. But Congress? Congress is like kindergarten. "Where is this Fridge?" "What was in there?" "Who or what is a Man-Thing?" I swear I need a cocktail and a lobotomy."
Maria Hill[src]
"If I come out, will you shoot me? 'Cause then I won't come out."
"Hold your fire, soldiers."
"This is one of the most classified facilities on the planet, colonel. How the hell did you find it?"
"I told them."
Phil Coulson, Colonel Glenn Talbot and Maria Hill[src]
"All this time, everything we've been through why? How could you?"
"I was on a mission. It wasn't personal."
It was- you did not just say that. "It wasn't personal"?"
"Skye, listen to me..."
"God, you might actually believe that. That - that is the twisted logic that they teach you when you sign up to be a *Nazi*."
"Stop. Wait. I'm not a Nazi."
"Yes, you are. That is exactly what you are. It's in the S.H.I.E.L.D. handbook, chapter one. The Red Skull, founder of HYDRA, was a big, fat, freaking Nazi."
"That has nothing to do with today."
"You know, you always had that Hitler Youth look to you. So it's really not that surprising."
Skye and Grant Ward[src]
"You know, I never liked you, Ward, not since our first sit-down, but I never figured you for John Garrett's lapdog."
"A lot of us lost respect for Fury when he picked you as his second. If he needed eye candy around, he could have at least picked Romanoff."
"That's funny. I'll tell her you said that."
Maria Hill and Grant Ward[src]

Episode 1.21: Ragtag

"This is just about everything we've been dealing with. And this connects them all. Cybertek built Deathlok, shipped items to Quinn, who was working for the Clairvoyant, who turned out to be Garrett, who planted Ward on our Bus because he wanted to know why I didn't stay dead. Should have drawn another chart for this part..."
Phil Coulson[src]
"We have no authority to do this. We're no longer S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. We're..."
"We're vigilantes."
"I was gonna say, 'doing this because it's the right thing to do,' but... yeah."
Phil Coulson and Leo Fitz[src]
"You know, I never gave you enough credit for this whole zen-warrior thing. But I got to admit, it'd be nice to feel nothing right now."
"You think I don't feel anything?"
"Look at you. You're a statue. And you and Ward had a thing. So if anyone should be furious..."
"I'm furious. But I'm sure as hell not gonna waste it on a tantrum. I'm gonna mine it, save it... and when we find Ward, I'm gonna use every bit of it to take him down."
"Wish I knew how to use that hate-fu."
"I'm up most mornings at five."
Skye and Melinda May[src]
"I told you we should've gone in."
"Oh hush, May looks barely a day over-[Fitz points out that May can hear what they're saying] -thirty! You're gorgeous!"
Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons[src]
"Years ago, a village in the Hunan province in China. It was destroyed, every man, woman, and child torn apart by monsters trying to find that baby."
"Did the monsters kill the baby's parents?"
"No. That's what's so interesting. The baby's parents were the monsters. "
Raina and Grant Ward[src]

Episode 1.22: Beginning of the End

"Well, if it isn't the Cavalry."
"Don't ever call me that."
Kaminsky and Melinda May[src]
"Are you ready to change the world?"
"No. But I'm ready to kick some ass."
"That works too."
Phil Coulson and Melinda May[src]
"You looked very peaceful sleeping. I didn't want to wake you, but I'm glad you're up."
Leo Fitz to Jemma Simmons[src]
"Here comes a Humvee that has better fireworks."
Antoine Triplett[src]
"I have a weapon much better than a bomb that will absolutely destroy you."
"Why's that?"
"Cause you slept with her. And she's really pissed off."
Skye and Grant Ward[src]
"You said our thing was no strings attached. Looks to me like the ice queen got her feelings hurt."
Grant Ward[src]
"Reminds me of the old days."
"You were never on top."
Grant Ward and Melinda May[src]
"Hi John."
"Hi, Phil."
"Well, that's new."
Phil Coulson and John Garrett[src]
"You didn't tell me he'd gone this crazy."
"He's really stepped it up a notch."
Nick Fury and Phil Coulson[src]
"Now, I'll be unst-"
"Hey guys! I found it! I told ya it'd be in here!"
John Garrett and Phil Coulson[src]
"How should I proceed?"
"It's up to you...director."
Phil Coulson and Nick Fury[src]
"And you sir? Where are you heading now?"
"Well I'm trading in my bird's eye view for two solid feet on the ground. This is the last time you'll be seeing me for a stretch."
"You going to disappear. Nowhere to be found."
"Nowhere? (Laughs) You know me better than that, Phil, I'll be everywhere."
Melinda May, Nick Fury, Phil Coulson[src]
"I found your daughter."
Raina to Calvin Zabo[src]

Season Two

Episode 2.01: Shadows

"I don't understand. I thought this stockpile held only artifacts."
"Not everything we dug out of the ground was an antique, my friend. Some of it was quite advanced."
"Is this the reason these men...? Hmm?"
"Ja. The Red Skull said it may hold the answer...the answer to death itself."
HYDRA Officer and Reinhardt[src]
"Coulson said we can trust him."
"It's true, and so will be every word I'll say to you for the rest of my life. I'm not asking for forgiveness; just want to help you."
Grant Ward to Skye[src]
"We have soldiers willing to sacrifice, but they need weapons. The enemy has the advantage. We need one of our own."
"You risked that for a Quinjet?"
"No. For what we can do with one."
Phil Coulson and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Episode 2.02: Heavy is the Head

"Let me be clear: Mr. Creel is working for HYDRA; I am not!"
"Why the break-up? Bad dental plan?"
HYDRA only has one thing on their minds: world domination, which is so 1945."
Raina and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.03: Making Friends and Influencing People

"Mr. Bakshi, I trust you to do what needs to be done."
Daniel Whitehall[src]
"Where are you taking me? ... Thank you, thanks very much."
Jemma Simmons[src]

Episode 2.04: Face My Enemy

"The rabbit is in the hutch."
"Yes, everyone on the planet knows what you mean, Hunter."
Phil Coulson[src]
"I will pay $500 right now for a pair of flats."
Melinda May[src]
"Wait, what was that?"
"Yeah. That's May."
"Well, is she ok? Is everything ok?"
"She's fine. She's laughing. I think the worst of it's over now."
Skye and Phil Coulson[src]
"My face hurts."
Melinda May[src]
"Come on. We used to have fun like this in our youth. You know you enjoyed it."
"Yes. Then life happened. Nostalgia's fine, but I'd rather deal with reality."
Phil Coulson and Melinda May[src]
"That's very alarming."
Leo Fitz[src]
"I could've handled him."
"I did."
Phil Coulson and Melinda May[src]
"I really like that dress."
Phil Coulson[src]
"This is the part I do. It'll make up for the dancing."
"You liked it."
"I didn't."
"Little bit?"
"...Little bit."
Melinda May and Phil Coulson[src]
"Ha ha, and no. It didn't work out because interspecies relationships are hard. I was a human, whereas she was a demonic hell-beast."
"He doesn't like her. "
"You don't say."
"She's pure evil."
"Hey, at least you got away from your ex, the guy I had a crush on is now the psycho living in our basement."
"You know, I wish I could relate, but all my exes are awesome."
"Is that right? I seem to remember an entire year when you had to pretend you liked quinoa."
"Yeah, that was a dark time."
Lance Hunter, Alphonso Mackenzie, Antoine Triplett and Skye[src]
"Where are you based?"
"Currently? About five seconds away from kicking your ass."
Sunil Bakshi and Melinda May[src]
"May hates coffee."
Phil Coulson to Agent 33[src]
"I know all of your moves; I was once S.H.I.E.L.D."
"Not all of them."
Agent 33 and Melinda May[src]
"I can't believe I'm the only one seeing this right now."
Phil Coulson[src]
"No, NO! Dear God, no!"
Leo Fitz[src]
"You won't even talk to me now."
"Because it's embarrassing."
Jemma Simmons (hallucination) and Leo Fitz[src]
"So, I don't have an ex, but there was this girl that I liked, and I told her how I felt, but she didn't feel the same, so she left."
Leo Fitz[src]
"Some people are better in small doses."
Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.05: A Hen in the Wolf House

"We have a mole, ladies and gentlemen, right here in our very facility!"
Bobbi Morse[src]
"I guess today's my lucky day."
"If you ask me, Coulson let you off easy."
"I didn't ask."
Lance Hunter and Raina[src]
"You're afraid of him. And you don't scare easily."
Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.06: A Fractured House

"Try being married to somebody who remembers every single little detail. It's not that charming. ... You think I'm being petty, don't you? Well, I'm not. I don't have a problem with Bob kissing that guy."
"Good. Because you had a hickey on your neck for a week after our mission in Miami."
"Well excuse me doing my job thoroughly. And with style."
Lance Hunter and Melinda May[src]
"Hunter, you know I don't like you, right?"
Melinda May[src]
"You ever been married?"
" ... "
"You still talk to him?"
" ... "
"Right. Good advice."
Bobbi Morse and Melinda May[src]
"I know what I am. But my brother... is worse."
Grant Ward[src]
"I'm still a part of the team."
"You th-... You are not, nor will you ever be a part of my team. You dumped FitzSimmons into the ocean. You murdered Victoria Hand and Eric Koenig, you deluded son of a bitch!"
Grant Ward and Phil Coulson[src]
"If I ever see you again, I'll kill you."
Jemma Simmons[src]
"Do not give him an inch."
Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.07: The Writing on the Wall

"I do some carving, now and then."
Sebastian Derik[src]
"How long have you been standing there?"
"Long enough."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]
"It's all connected, everything. Ward has information about my father who just happens to have the alien buzz kill device which is somehow connected to the writing which is related to the GH serum that is in our blood, like we're pieces to a puzzle."
Skye to Phil Coulson[src]
"It can't be that interesting."
"Why do you say that?"
"Because you were on page 117 when you were waiting outside. And you're still on page 117. So either you're a really slow reader, or you're working for Coulson."
"I am impressed. And you can tell him I said that. I almost missed you."
"What are you talking about?"
"I'm sure they told you about this. If you try or say anything, everyone in this bus will be flying. So just keep reading your book, and hope for a happy ending."
Grant Ward and Bobbi Morse[src]
"You're gonna have to torture it out of me."
Phil Coulson[src]
"You were dressed like a cowboy."
Bobbi Morse[src]
"I like my bosses unjumbled at all times."
Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Episode 2.08: The Things We Bury

"If it starts to leak any fluids, drop it, run."
"This doesn't sound like a watch."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]
"Sir, can I put this is my pocket?"
"That depends, do you ever want kids?"
Antoine Triplett and Phil Coulson[src]
"We may actually have a shot at finding the city."
"Are you sure it's something you want to dig up?"
"If we don't, HYDRA will. We need to get there first."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]
"What are we talking about?Tesseract-level power?"
"Sure. I don't know that is."
"You realize we're talking life and death here."
"I know. It's exciting, isn't it? I mean, both sides racing to the temple, life and death, flesh and blood, emotions! Who knows how it'll shake out? All I know is, my Baby's gonna be right there in the center of it."
Phil Coulson and Calvin Zabo[src]

Episode 2.09: ...Ye Who Enter Here

"Sacrifices have to be made. Poison tree, poison fruit."
Melinda May (Skye's dream)[src]
"You're very lucky, Trip. If they hadn't used the clotting agent on your wounds... Well let's just say I'm glad they did."
Jemma Simmons[src]
"I'm telling you sir, she looked exactly like Agent May. Expect for the freaky facial scar thing."
"That was Agent 33. She was wearing a nanomask disguised as May, but May electrocuted her right in the face."
"Oh, that is so badass!"
"Sam, I'm on with the director! Thank you."
Billy Koenig, Phil Coulson, and Sam Koenig[src]
"You ever had the fried plantains here?"
"From Tostones? Yeah, why?"
"I heard about this place down the street where they put crab in them. I wouldn't mind trying that. You know, after we save the world."
Phil Coulson and Bobbi Morse[src]
"Ooh, hats. I wish I was a hat guy. Some guys can really pull that look off, you know? ... What, too small?"
Phil Coulson[src]
"Look around you. Venders, selling their wares to bring home a modest income. Locals, buying fresh vegetables for dinner tonight. Tourists, on their one vacation a year."
"They are the point. The're the reason I'm here. The reason there's a S.H.I.E.L.D.. There are three million people on this island. I don't want HYDRA turning them into collateral damage."
Phil Coulson and Bobbi Morse[src]
"He did it. You know Ward did it."
"No doubt in my mind. "
"The senator should have let us help."
"We tried. But he wanted nothing to do with us. All we can do now is try and catch Ward."
"Or put the son of a bitch down."
Skye and Melinda May[src]
"We were in the bottom of the ocean, in a storage pod, left for dead. And Fitz... he said something that caught me completely off-guard."
"Ah, those three little words."
"Yes! Well, no. I mean, not exactly. I barely had a moment to process what he said or how I felt about it, next thing I know, he's giving me the oxygen, water's rushing in and... He's ... He's laying there, in the hospital bed. He was so pale."
"How long was Fitz in the coma?"
"Nine of the longest days of my life. When it finally broke, he couldn't speak. He just stared at me, confused. All I wanted to do was help him. All I wanted was... My best friend back."
"Your best friend?"
"I never thought of him as anything else. That said, I can't imagine my life without him. It's all very confusing."
"You've never told him any of this, have you?"
"Oh, lord no."
Jemma Simmons and Bobbi Morse[src]
"Stand down Agent 33, we can help you!"
"I don't need your help."
Skye and Agent 33[src]
"That wasn't Mack."
Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.10: What They Become

"Where's your brother been hiding?"
"Well, all this excitement fried his circuits. His cooling system kicked in and he's recharging his batteries."
"...I know what you're doing."
Antoine Triplett and Billy Koenig[src]
"The only word for that kind of flying is "fancy.""
Antoine Triplett[src]
"I'll make plenty of time to answer all your questions. But first, now that he's served his purpose, I'm gonna kill the man that destroyed my life. Best day ever."
Calvin Zabo[src]
"If my daughter wasn't here, I would tear you and your men to pieces."
"Well, then, I'll add that to the number of reasons that I'm glad she's here. (To Grant Ward) You are the piece of the puzzle I can't decipher. Why are you really here?"
"Is it really that hard to see? It's love. Agent Ward believes if he helps Skye fulfill her destiny, she'll see him for what he really is."
"(To Zabo) Aww. It's a pity you won't get to fulfill that destiny, or that after all those years, you won't get your vengeance after what I did to your wife."
Calvin Zabo, Daniel Whitehall, and Raina[src]
"Two goals; stop the drill, find Skye."
"Aren't you forgetting the third?"
"What's that?"
"Don't die out there. We tend to remind each other not to die."
"I thought that was implicit."
"He likes to hear it."
"Who doesn't like to hear it?"
Phil Coulson, Lance Hunter, and Bobbi Morse[src]
"You're welcome. Now let's get out of here."
"Yeah, me too! Come on!"
"It's safer here. And I'm about to do something to Whitehall. I don't want you to see me like that."
"I don't mind... seeing. Hell, I'm happy to help."
"No. I get to do this myself."
Grant Ward, Skye, and Calvin Zabo[src]
"Stop it! Stop it or I'll shoot! Dad!"
"He took something from me."
"No. He saved you from killing more people. Now, get up and get away from him."
"You have to finish what we started."
"No, I don't. I'm not going down there. I'm not gonna change or transform or whatever the hell you think is gonna to happen."
"Why can't you see it's a good thing?"
"Maybe it's all the dead bodies laying around or the fact that HYDRA wants it. I'm gonna make sure the Obelisk never gets down into that city. And you're going to leave. This is your once chance to walk away. Or I will kill you."
"Okay. I'll go. But I'll be waiting for you. After you chance, no one else will understand. They'll be afraid. Change is terrifying. But I'm your father, and I love you. I will always love you, Daisy."
Skye and Calvin Zabo[src]
"Your whole life... our whole lives have been leading up to his moment."
"Sorry. I don't buy into the whole "this is your destiny" thing. We're taking the Obelisk, and we're leaving. There's too many lives at stake."
"You got it all wrong. Whitehall, everyone has got it all wrong. This doesn't destroy. It gives life; new life. We finally get to find out what we become. (the Obelisk floats onto a pedestal)"
"Make it stop."
"I can't. Neither of us can now."
Raina and Skye[src]

Episode 2.11: Aftershocks

"Did you find Raina's body yet?"
"There's a lot of rubble to dig through, but not yet. Whatever gas came out of that obelisk hit you, too. That's why we're being extra cautious. It's hard to make sense of all of this."
"What? No, it - No, it isn't. We lost. We failed."
"Skye, don't say that."
"It wasn't because of HYDRA,It was because of me."
"Don't blame yourself."
"If I didn't go down there, you could have blown the place!"
"That was one battle. This is a war."
"And Ward and my father, the rotten core, the center of everything!"
"We did not fail! Trip prevented a disaster, and Whitehall's dead. We cut off the head. And while HYDRA scrambles for a new one, I will crush them! I'm gonna make someone pay... whoever the hell it is."
Skye and Phil Coulson[src]
"I've been in quarantine before, and I know it can drive you absolutely nuts."
"Thanks. I was beginning to feel like a leper."
"Are you kidding? You managed to be taken hostage by three known murderers, you gunned Ward down, then were blasted by an alien chemical weapon and walked out unscathed. Leper? I think you're a rock star."
Bobbi Morse and Skye[src]
"I shouldn't have to ask any of you to save one of our own."
"You never ask! You just give your orders, no matter cracked up they are!"
"Mack, you'd do well to remember your rank right now."
"Really? Rank at a time like this? Why don't you shove your rank up your..."
"Not helping, Hunter."
"Guys, stop."
"No, it's cathartic. Do you have any thoughts of your own on it, or do you just parrot his?"
"Coulson's trying to stop HYDRA."
"We didn't stop anything! We unleashed something on the planet!"
"No one knows what happened yet."
"It could have been a lot worse."
"And Skye barely made it out alive!"
"Thanks to Trip. He sacrificed his life, Mack!"
"No! He traded his life for hers! And then he was shattered into a thousand pieces!"
"That's enough! If Trip was here, he wouldn't be arguing, he wouldn't be bitching. He would be gearing up to do what needs to be done. Yes, we're dealing with forces we don't understand, but HYDRA I do understand. I want everyone ready when the sun comes up. End of discussion."
Phil Coulson,Alphonso Mackenzie,Melinda May, Lance Hunter, Bobbi Morse, Skye, and Leo Fitz[src]
""You'll never take us alive"? Really? That's a little over the top, don't you think?"
"I only had a day to come up with this whole thing. Besides, if I let you write the script, no one would say anything."
Melinda May and Phil Coulson[src]
"After all that time, I didn't quite get the answers I was searching for."
"I'm sorry you didn't find your way to the temple. You didn't get to evolve."
"Oh, I evolved.(grabs him)What the hell have I become?"
"Raina. Let's not lose our heads."
"What happened to me?"
"Metamorphosis, by the look of it."
"I was supposed to become something divine, something transcendent. My grandmother said I'd be an angel, not some gnarled freak of nature covered in thorns."
"You always did like flowers."
"They hurt, and it's all your fault."
Raina and Calvin Zabo[src]
"There is something very wrong with me..."
"(in American accent)Your presence is most welcome."
"Drop the accent. It makes you sound like a douche bag."
"(Reverting to normal voice)Now you know what it feels like for me to live in this country."
Lance Hunter and Bobbi Morse[src]

Episode 2.12: Who You Really Are

"Not bad. But once I'm pinned, you should try for a finishing blow."
"You want full mortal combat?"
"I want you to stop holding back, Skye."
"I didn't want to hurt you... I didn't want to try to hurt you. I feel like I'm constantly on the verge of... I don't know."
"Look... we lost Trip, and it hurts like hell, but you can't shut those feelings out. Can't sustain that."
"What's my option? l just might lose it right here?"
"We've talked about this. Control. Embrace your emotions, your nerves. Use them... on your terms."
"I don't know. What I'm feeling... is pretty dark. I'm afraid I'm gonna go postal and tear your head off."
"Go for it. I promise you won't."
Melinda May and Skye[src]
"I don't blame you, but I have been thinking about it, and I realized I've been wasting your talents."
"Look, I know you love it under the hood of a car, but... we could really use you out in the field. You're a force to be reckoned with, Mack. Believe me."
"Okay, but violence isn't really my thing. You know, that alien crap made me into something I'm not."
"I know. But have you seen yourself? You're a little bit of a beast all the time."
Phil Coulson and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]
"What do you want from me?"
"Don't worry. You won't remember."
―Nurse and Vin-Tak[src]
"My mind is that of a lost adolescent. I can provide no information of value."
"Not totally true. Judging by your clothes, we know you were undercover, probably something you learned after your last visit here. Your usual full-armor look is a little more... conspicuous."
"So you are saying I wear that armor most of the time? Does this mean I'm a warrior?"
"A good one."
"A great warrior..."
"It's just details that you're missing. You must remember things about your home world, right?"
"Only basic lessons a child would learn."
"The name of your sword?What about Thor?"
"Um... I do not know this word, but when you say it, I want to smile. Why?"
"Who can explain the mysteries of the Asgardian brain?"
"I can."
Sif, Phil Coulson, and Melinda May[src]
"I barely touched it, I swear."
"Trust me, there is no universe in which I think you did that on your own."
Lance Hunter and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]
"Yet you do not serve a king?"
"Not really how it works with us."
"I wonder if I serve the king as the great warrior you say I am."
"Odin? Oh, we know you do. You've met him."
"(Pleasantly shocked)Shut... up."
Sif and Melinda May[src]
"Sorry. The argument was going nowhere."
"(To Sif)You back with us?"
"Yes. My memories have returned. I am Lady Sif of Asgard, friend of the S.H.I.E.L.D."
"Asgardian... well, that explains a lot."
"It is true. We don't trust Kree. That is why I am here. When Heimdall saw that one landed on your world, Odin charged me of retrieving him."
"So you came to pick a fight."
"We know enough about Kree history to be concerned."
"Well, then, if you know Kree history, perhaps you've heard the tale of Terrigenesis."
"Of course. Ancient Kree descending on planets, altering the inhabitants to fight their war."
"And Earth was one of them."
Vin-Tak, Phil Coulson, and Sif[src]
"Skye is my friend. She's different."
"Oh, yeah. Like I was your friend, and then I changed. How did you handle that?"
"Uh, t-the point is, secrets don't help any of us. Skye should have just come clean."
"What, and risked being locked up, studied, or who know what else? No, I wouldn't let her."
"Oh, you wouldn't let her."
"We could have handled her in a way that could have kept everybody safe."
"It wasn't fair to us, Fitz. We had a right to know."
"A right to know. What... is that the same way that Sif and the Kree had the right to know?"
"I think the situation is a bit different, mate."
"No, you would have done to her exactly what they wanted to."
"You don't know that!"
"Yes, I do know that! They would--you would--you'd "handle her"! Mack just said! Like, uh... like Skye's something to be locked up in a cage somewhere. We should be protecting her."
"No, Fitz. We're the ones that need the protection from her."
Jemma Simmons, Leo Fitz, Alphonso Mackenzie, Bobbi Morse, and Lance Hunter[src]
"You are a dangerous monster!"
"I am no monster. I am sometimes dangerous, but only toward those who are deserving.(Softly, to Coulson)I do not actually know. Is it... only toward those who are...?"
"No. That was... that was right."
"Thanks.(To Cardozo)Answer his question, elderly man!"
―Cardozo, Sif, and Phil Coulson[src]
"Kava means keys."
"A device used to unlock..."
"Yeah. I know keys."
Sif and Phil Coulson[src]
"Coulson, your people make decisions based on logic."
"Usually. As do mine."
"Leaving Skye with us is the logical choice, I promise."
"No. No. That is not what I mean. Asgard is millennia beyond you in our pursuit of science and knowledge. And we have learned there are some things that can never be understood."
"Is this little talk one of 'em?"
Sif and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.13: One of Us

"I won't stay long, I just need to use the microwave. I didn't want to disturb May and her ex."
"Disturb them from...?"
"They're in the kitchen, talking."
"What are they talking about? Is it about Skye's condition?"
" No, it was of a personal nature. Seems that May isn't a good cook."
"Something Agent May doesn't excel at... interesting."
"Yeah, he teased her about it... she was laughing."
"Oh, he makes her laugh! Clearly she still likes him, and have you seen the way he looks at her?"
"Yeah, I have eyes Jemma, of course I've seen."
"I wonder what happened between them, why end it?"
"They're a bizarre pair. He listens for a living and she doesn't speak."
"Well you know what they say, opposites attract."
Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons[src]
"I'm not here to discuss my ex."
"Did you guys have actual conversations? You know, like pillow talk? Or was it just pillow stern looks?"
Andrew Garner and Skye[src]
"We're spies, we lie for a living."
Bobbi Morse[src]
"I haven't worked with S.H.I.E.L.D. in a long while. I moved on for a reason."
"It's a different S.H.I.E.L.D., Coulson's the director now."
"Okay, but why me? Is this Skye that bad?"
"She's that good; good agent."
Andrew Garner and Melinda May[src]
"My entire life I've been searching for my parents, and my search ended with answers that are so much worse than I could have imagined."

Episode 2.14: Love in the Time of HYDRA

"What was in the case, Jemma?"
"Something to help Skye."
"Because you want to change her, is that it?"
"Stop it. I don't want to change Skye, the Diviner did that. I'm just trying to fix her."
Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons[src]
"I'm sorry about everything that's happening Skye."
"Not your fault. The blame begins and ends with my dad."
"Well, you wouldn't be the first person to have parents with misguided intentions."
"Nope, just the first whose crazy dad lured her to an alien city to get earthquake powers."
Phil Coulson and Skye[src]
"Everything I felt for you, that was real."
"Yeah maybe so, but in the end you still got that intel didn't you?"
Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter[src]
"This is not a decision that we arrived at lightly. I know Coulson, he was a good agent. At least he was before Fury injected him with alien DNA. Ever since, his behavior has grown increasingly more troubling. Can you honestly tell me that you don't share any of these concerns?"
Robert Gonzales[src]
"Things change, that's what I'm saying, so maybe if you can learn to control this then you could have Avengers level powers. Something like Captain America even."
"I think it best we keep in mind the unstable nature of Skye's power. If there is an Avenger equivalent right now, I'm afraid it's the Hulk."
"Well, Hulk saved the world last I checked."
Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons[src]
"You guys don't want Coulson in charge. I'll be the first to admit the guy's not perfect. Sometimes chews with his mouth open, tends to hog the mike on karaoke nights. But other than that, he's not so bad, really."
Lance Hunter to Robert Gonzales[src]

Episode 2.15: One Door Closes

"Got to get you a gun one of these days."
"Save my bullets for the real fight."
Bobbi Morse and Isabelle Hartley[src]
"What's the plan? What are you even doing here?"
"Fury left us orders."
"To do what?"
"To save S.H.I.E.L.D.."
Alphonso Mackenzie, Isabelle Hartley, and Bobbi Morse[src]
"I work for S.H.I.E.L.D., I do. I swear. But you don't."
"Try again."
"What Coulson's doing here, this isn't S.H.I.E.L.D - not the real S.H.I.E.L.D., anyway."
"The last person who betrayed me... I broke his larynx. Hand that over."
Bobbi Morse and Melinda May[src]
"They know all of our protocols. We handed Mack the schematics of our base."
"They don't know everything about this place. Not like we do."
"She said she was working for S.H.I.E.L.D., Phil. The real S.H.I.E.L.D.."
"What the hell does that mean?"
Melinda May and Phil Coulson[src]
"What does it feel like, your gift?"
"I don't know. Um... It's intense. Like 1,000 bees trapped inside of me. And I feel it all the time. It's always there. And I can't stop it."
"Why would you want to stop it?"
"Because I destroy everything around me."
"That is simply not true. Every object in this universe gives off a vibration. Did you know that? Nothing rests. Animals, trees, people, even this ratty couch. And you... you have the ability to tap into those vibrations. Don't you see? You can become magnificent. But something's inhibiting you, constraining your energy."
"Uh, no. No, no. My, um... my friend's a scientist. She made these to protect me."
"Or do they protect people from you?"
"No, it's not like that. My powers, I-I can't control them. And when I try to, it hurts me."
"Most gifts come with a price, but you could learn to manage it. I apologize. I'm saying too much. This is probably not the best place to continue our conversation. You don't have the tools and the understanding that you need just yet."
"To do what?"
"To be who you were always meant to be. Without fear, without pain. We can offer that to you."
"I'll take you to a place where you can be with people like us."
"Us? How many are there?"
"You can learn about yourself, your gift. You can be safe. But only if you want to come. When you're ready, I'll find you."
Gordon and Skye[src]
"I was wrong that day. We followed Fury's orders, hundreds of men and women who devoted their lives to this organization would be dead. If I had been the man in charge, they'd all be lost."
"So now you all operate as what? Five friendly faces who agree on everything? I don't see the other four here talking to me... just you."
"I have no desire to be the director."
"You think I did? Fury chose me."
"He made you. You're literally his creation. He thought of himself as some sort of king who made damn sure he had an heir to the throne. Try and remember Project Insight was Fury's idea. Secrets are what brought S.H.I.E.L.D. down the first time, and we won't let that happen again."
"If you wanted to talk to me, Agent Gonzales, you should have talked to me. You put spies on my team, invaded my base, hurt my people. Fury's secrets didn't bring down S.H.I.E.L.D., HYDRA did."
"I wonder if you really believe that."
Robert Gonzales and Phil Coulson[src]
"You really think they're gonna help you?"
"Every member of your team is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. We'll let them make their own decisions."
"Already made mine."
"That's really a nice entrance."
Robert Gonzales, Phil Coulson, and Melinda May[src]
"The most dangerous kind of pain is the kind you can't feel."
Alphonso Mackenzie[src]
"Nice office. Lots of light."
"You haven't even delved into the record collection."
Robert Gonzales and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.16: Afterlife

"Can I let you in on a little secret? I've got a genuine, honest Abe, God-given superpower. You want to know what it is?"
"I'm afraid to guess."
"I can look at any man and tell him exactly what kind of car he should be driving."
"Maybe I'll just look around."
"Y-you know, I look at you, and I see a man who's played it safe his whole life, but lately feels like he's stuck in a rut. Life's lost its thrill. The kids are monsters. The wife's taken to muumuus. And now you're thinking, it's time to let the tiger loose."
"(after stealing a jeep)Sorry, Eddie. Tiger's been loose for a while."
―Eddie and Phil Coulson[src]
"Imagine a thousand years of evolution taking place instantaneously. That's what happened to you after the mist. These treatments, we're helping your body adjust properly to the change. Transitioning you quickly and painlessly; I hope. We usually like to start the process right after the mist but..."
"How long? How long, when can I go?"
"You got places to be, people to see?"
"I'm worried about my friends. I think they're in danger."
"You're the one that's in danger Skye, remember? You're being hunted."
Lincoln Campbell and Skye[src]
"I'm not going down without a fight. We're gonna find Skye and we're gonna take back S.H.I.E.L.D., and we're gonna need more than Honest Eddie's Jeep to do it."
"You want to take their Quinjet, the two of us, while we're trapped in here, surrounded. Brilliant."
"I have reinforcements on the way. We just have to hold down the fort until they get here."
"Yeah, well, I have reinforcements of my own."
"I.C.E.R.s only."
"Oh, you can't be serious."
"Those are S.H.I.E.L.D. agents out there. We're not gonna hurt them."
"I somehow doubt they feel the same about us."
"It won't come to that. It may not look like it, but this place was built to withstand a Hulk-sized force. On the other hand, let's just hope they didn't bring a...(a battering ram hits the safe house)"
"...battering ram."
"'Cause then we've only got about an hour."
Phil Coulson and Lance Hunter[src]
"Where's are the reinforcements?"
"I don't know. Stuck in traffic?"
"Are they traveling by clown car?"
Lance Hunter and Phil Coulson[src]
"Maybe he's got a point. I was dead, after all. I shouldn't even be here."
"We all have our bad days."
Phil Coulson and Lance Hunter[src]
"It took a while to get it controlled. When I first got here, I almost burned the place down, literally. But now, sky's the limit. No pun intended I guess."
Lincoln Campbell[src]
"You're a piece of cake compared to the other one. Total physical transformation, and we still have no idea what her gift is."
Lincoln Campbell[src]
"Maybe we should forget all this, head down to Mexico. We can lay low, enjoy the quiet life."
"That's not an option. The problem is... there are no good options."
"Well, maybe it's time for the bad ones."
Lance Hunter and Phil Coulson[src]
"I hate to see you leave, Turbo."
"Only my friend Mack calls me that."
Alphonso Mackenzie and Leo Fitz[src]
"This would have been a piece of cake if you'd let us use these big boy guns. Now we have to get close enough to get shot by their big boy guns."
"By the time they recognize us it'll be too late."
"Then there's the small matter of who's gonna fly that thing. Do you even know how?"
"I've watched May fly. I know a little."
"How little?"
"I can get us off the ground."
"You do know there's more to it than that like getting us back *n the ground... for example..."
Lance Hunter and Phil Coulson[src]
"At some point, you might have mentioned that backup was a lethal cyborg."
"Truthfully, I just wanted to see the look on your face when he showed up. Priceless."
"Glad I amuse you."
"You know I can hear you up here."
Lance Hunter, Phil Coulson, and Deathlok[src]
"Seven agents down, Calderon barely hanging on, and you want to defend that thing?"
"What happened wasn't her fault. I was there. Calderon fired at her."
"She was armed and hostile."
"She was scared and defending herself."
"I don't care if she was chasing butterflies. We can't wear kid gloves around something with powers of that magnitude."
Robert Gonzales and Bobbi Morse[src]
"Leo Fitz, Jemma Simmons, the ones that got away. I had my eye on you two when you were at the academy. I wanted to recruit you, but Coulson beat me to it. I heard he actually bribed Weaver with cupcakes. Robert Gonzales."
"We know who you are, and we are quite aware of your commendable reputation. Under different circumstances, we might even be flattered... Which is why this is so hard to comprehend."
"Under different circumstances, we would have preferred to be invited guests, but that forced our hand. We had to take it out of play."
"What's inside that's so important?"
"All we know is that Coulson and Fury both believed it was valuable enough or dangerous enough to protect with extreme measures."
"Maybe it was their favorite recipes."
Robert Gonzales, Jemma Simmons, Bobbi Morse, and Leo Fitz[src]
"Can you warm up food with your powers? Because that would be awesome."
"I have never tried; but I did warm up a small pool once."
"Any five-year-old can warm up a pool."
Skye and Lincoln Campbell[src]

Episode 2.17: Melinda

"I dream of Skye and her father at dinner. A bouquet of daisies. And she's so happy."
"Everything's shaking already, vibrating at its own natural frequency. This stone, the wood in the trees..I believe you can learn to sense those frequencies around you and resonate with them so that not everything is shaking, only what you choose."
"Something bad happens every time I feel settled somewhere. I'm twenty five and I have never spent more than two years anywhere. The second I made friends at the orphanage; gone. And God forbid I called a foster family home; pack your bags. I got the news on my birthday once, which is a complete farce because I don't even know when I was born."
"I'm so sorry."
"S.H.I.E.L.D. was the closest I ever came to having a family. I belonged there, saw what I could be. Even that ended with agents hunting me through the woods."
"We're not going to turn on you, or abandon you. This is a safe place."
"See, you say that but I know you're not being straight with me. Why do you care if I stay or go? And why are you..."
"July second. You were born on July second."
Skye and Jiaying[src]
"There was a woman once, she didn't trust my judgement. So she stole a batch of Terrigen Crystals and fled. Got caught up with some criminals in Bahrain. Her name was Eva Belyakov. Russian, strong-willed like you."
"You know it's really impressive for Jiaying to take anyone under her wing."
"I like her. I just... I can't... What's her role here?"
"Her role is, in charge. So really she must like you."
"If she's in charge, how often does she train people?"
"Since I've been here... let me see... never."
Lincoln Campbell and Skye[src]
"We believe Ms. Belyakov possesses enhanced strength. This is what happened when a Russian officer tried to stop her with his car. She fled Russia unharmed. Looks pretty strong to me, so it's important we don't spook her. Just a friendly chat to bring her in for evaluation. And if all goes really well, we gain an asset before the Russians find her."
Phil Coulson[src]
"The girl... She didn't understand...I couldn't save her..."
Melinda May[src]

Episode 2.18: The Frenemy of My Enemy

"Johnson... Is that your last name?"
"Was. Pretty ordinary, huh? I changed it to something more sinister when I went on the run."
"Daisy Johnson. Huh."
Skye and Calvin Zabo[src]
"Three men, heavily armed - bet there's more where they came from."
"Does it matter? They got a cyborg on board with rockets in his arm."
"He's not a cyborg. He's a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent... with rockets in his arm."
Lance Hunter, Grant Ward, and Phil Coulson[src]
"What are you made of?"
"Whoever you are, you don't want to do this. I'm a friend of Skye's."
"Sure. And I'm the Hulk."
Lincoln Campbell and Deathlok[src]
"Take me to your leader."
Phil Coulson[src]
"I doubled back after HYDRA took off. The cleanup crew really sucks, doesn't it?"
Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.19: The Dirty Half Dozen

"Mike Peterson: (Imprisoned) We didn't get to formally meet. My name's Mike. I think we got knocked out together."
"You're the guy with the parts. You know where we are."
"No. At least they haven't killed us yet. But there are bodies out there."
"Oh, great. You got all that hardware. Use one of those weapons and get us out of here."
"Right. Because I didn't think of that."
"At least your sarcasm still works."
Deathlok and Lincoln Campbell[src]
"Don't give up hope just yet. Skye can save Lincoln. I saw her do it."
"(Confused) Wh - You've *seen* it?"
"We think Raina's gift may allow her to see things before they happen."
"I thought her gift was spinning really fast to collect gold rings."
Raina, Daisy Johnson, and Gordon[src]
"Can we just address the elephant on the plane? I know. This is weird. Mistakes were made."
"By you."
"And people got hurt."
"By you."
"And I could stand here and explain again how my parents - and brother left me vulnerable..."
"We've all had our traumas, Ward. Didn't turn any of us into psychopaths."
"Well, we all have our own ways of coping, don't we? For example, I was yours."
"Watch it, Ward!"
"Look, I'm just saying we all made mistakes. Coulson handed me over to my abuser, thank you. Skye shot me."
"After you killed how many people?"
"Yeah, and we were a team and a family, and you betrayed us!"
"know. It's what I regret the most. Not the lying, the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents I had to put down, and I'm sorry not even dropping you two in the ocean. It's this. My actions destroyed this. I'll regret that forever. 'Cause there were good times. Right? Before? I mean, for a while there, we were a good team. Weren't we?"
"(after a dramatic pause) I'm still happy I shot you."
"Yeah, me too."
"Should've aimed for the face."
Grant Ward, Leo Fitz, Melinda May, Phil Coulson, Jemma Simmons, and Daisy Johnson[src]
"What can you tell me about her?"
"Raina? She's manipulative, dangerous, deceitful. We had good times."
Jiaying and Calvin Zabo[src]
"I bet Gonzales wasn't happy when you said he wasn't invited to this chat."
"Yeah, well, I wasn't too happy when he blew a hole in my base and kicked me out. We all live with disappointment, and right now, we have bigger problems."
"Does that mean you found it?"
"I'm guessing HYDRA doesn't know Loki's scepter was the weapon that killed me, but I bet they know it can control minds."
"In their hands, that's catastrophic. Coulson, please tell me you know where it is."
"Sokovia. I'm pretty sure List is headed there right now. I've just sent you everything I found on Strucker's location."
"Coulson, why didn't you just tell Gonzales why you really wanted to get onto the HYDRA base?"
"Believe it or not, he puts every decision to a vote... I know. And I was pretty sure if I'd been honest, I'd have lost the swing vote, so I did what I had to do."
"Last thing. Theta Protocol; is it ready?"
"Yes, it is. Time to bring in the Avengers."
Maria Hill and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.20: Scars

"Let me protect my family the way I couldn't before."
Calvin Zabo to Jiaying[src]

Episode 2.21: S.O.S. Part One

"♪ I'm half-crazy ♪"
Calvin Zabo singing "Daisy Bell"[src]
"Tell me you figured out what drugs Cal took, because my gut's saying everything ever made."
"I haven't fully sequenced the formula yet, if only for the multitude of trace drugs found, but my initial list includes anabolic-androgenic steroids, a liver enzyme blocker, various metabolic enhancers, methamphetamines, what appears to be gorilla testosterone, and, no lie, a drop of peppermint. I think it's an ill-conceived attempt at super strength."
"Other than Cap, every attempt has been ill-conceived."
Phil Coulson and Jemma Simmons[src]
"That little concoction is my own special formula. I took it of my own free will. You see, when my Daisy was stolen, I wasn't strong enough to protect her, so I started experimenting. If I wasn't born with Inhuman powers, then I would make my own. Best-laid plans. C'est la vie. I never got it quite right... Always missing something. Highly unstable. Made me a little moody. Could it kill me? Sure. But it was worth the risk."
―Calvin Zabo to Phil Coulson[src]
"You were looking for a monster?"
Calvin Zabo[src]
"I'm headed down to secure the armory. I'm also upstairs in the conference room. "
Alisha Whitley to Lincoln Campbell[src]

Episode 2.22: S.O.S. Part Two

"I'm trapped in here! That's not possible! What did you do?!"
"Science, biatch."
Gordon and Leo Fitz[src]
"A team centered around people with powers? How many on the list?"
"Right now, just you. We'll take it slow."
Skye and Phil Coulson[src]

Season Three

Episode 3.01: Laws of Nature

"My name's Daisy and I'm with S.H.I.E.L.D. and we're here for your protection."
Daisy Johnson to Joey Gutierrez[src]
"That biology degree's finally coming in handy, huh? "
Phil Coulson to Bobbi Morse[src]
"I'll open it and give you what's inside, no problem. But only in exchange for something in your possession."
"How about in exchange for your life?"
"No deal."
Leo Fitz and Yusef Hadad[src]
"I'm literally a catastrophic meltdown."
―Joey Gutierrez[src]
"And now I think... I know it's a black hole. It's dark matter made solid. It can warp space-time."
Leo Fitz about the Monolith[src]
"I'm on my third hand, but nothing feels normal because nothing will feel normal."
Phil Coulson to Leo Fitz[src]
"Do something... Do something!... DO SOMETHING!... DO SOMETHING!"
Leo Fitz to the Monolith[src]

Episode 3.02: Purpose in the Machine

"You'll have to go through me."
"And I could. Literally."
Leo Fitz and Elliot Randolph[src]
"I understand the need for these "Secret Warriors"."
Andrew Garner to Daisy Johnson[src]

Episode 3.03: A Wanted (Inhu)man

"You know, last time we met, you, uh, disarmed me with your evasive tactics."
"I see what you did there."
"No, I got to hand it to you."
"Makes me wonder what else you got up your sleeve."
"No, really, I get it."
"Hard to resist."
Rosalind Price and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 3.06: Among Us Hide...

"Been thinking about your ATCU theory. Now, who took off before the convoy left, and who knew the exact route we were going to take?"
"He's got access to everything that ATCU learns about Inhumans."
"We should tail him."
Alphonso Mackenzie and Daisy Johnson[src]
"It keeps them in stasis ... alive, healthy, just asleep. "
Rosalind Price to Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 3.07: Chaos Theory

"I can actually create things now!"
Joey Gutierrez[src]
"He won't always be able to shift between monster and man. He's still in transition. Becoming Inhuman."
"And when that transition's complete?"
"He'll stay Lash, permanently."
Lincoln Campbell and Daisy Johnson[src]

Episode 3.08: Many Heads, One Tale

"You like to joke about your robot hand and not being human. I'm not sure you're so off the mark."
Rosalind Price to Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 3.10: Maveth

"Hey! What part of "that's an order" do you not understand?! Coulson put me in charge to make the hard call, and that's what I'm doing. We can't afford to lose our best agents in one fell swoop...not here, not tonight!"
―Alphonso Mackenzie to Daisy Johnson and Bobbi Morse[src]

Episode 3.11: Bouncing Back

"You're doing good."
"I'm not great at projecting authority. It's nice to talk Spanish, though. Reminds me of home."
"Do you miss it?"
"Especially Sundays. Mom cooks on Sundays."
Daisy Johnson and Joey Gutierrez[src]
"You'd think three years' high school Spanish..."
―Alphonso Mackenzie[src]
"So you snap back to the same spot like a yo-yo."
Alphonso Mackenzie to Elena Rodriguez[src]
"It looks good."
"Fitz outdid himself on this one. Lots of bells and whistles. It's pretty fantastic."
Melinda May and Phil Coulson[src]
"Feels real."
"Feels like the others. It's not the hand. It's me."
"Maybe you're not supposed to get over it. Some things you can't move past. They scar you, change you permanently."
"I don't know what happened there, on that planet."
"I do. You joined the cavalry."
Melinda May and Phil Coulson[src]
"Invisibility... Imagine the possibilities."
"What are you imagining?"
"Nothing fun."
"Get used to it. We can't put the Terrigen genie back in the bottle. Powers are the new normal."
"I think you're just jealous."
"Damn right I am. Tell me you didn't try one of those little fish-oil pills. I had my fingers crossed for x-ray vision. I was just curious. I wasn't the only one."
"I mean, I-I thought about it. I didn't actually do it. Rehab was a bitch."
"Man, you two deserve each other."
Lance Hunter, Bobbi Morse and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]
"You've been nothing less than extraordinary this whole time."
Jemma Simmons to Leo Fitz[src]
"It felt like rock crawling up my body, suffocating me in it..."
"I think you're talking about Terrigenesis"
―Elena Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]
"You're my new best friend."
Daisy Johnson to Elena Rodriguez[src]
"At S.H.I.E.L.D., we do better than duct tape."
Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Episode 3.12: The Inside Man

"Great. Coulson's in trouble, the place is crawling with armed HYDRA Agents, and we have no weapons."
"Not strictly true. Buon appetito."
"I love you."
"I don't hate you quite as much."
Melinda May, Lance Hunter and Bobbi Morse[src]
"I hate to be a buzzkill, but this is a gun-free zone, so I'm gonna have to take that off you."
Lance Hunter to HYDRA operatives[src]

Episode 3.13: Parting Shot

"Fitz and I believe the General has the ability to manifest a form of sentient Darkforce, able to shift its density at will."
"Judging by the way he's elsewhere at the moment, it operates independently of him."
Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz about Androvich[src]
"Minister of Defense, former KGB assassin."
"And still at it, apparently."
Phil Coulson and Leo Fitz about Androvich[src]
"Converting to Unicode, and..."
"Spasibo, Daisy."
"De nada."
"Pretty sure that's not Russian."
Daisy Johnson and Bobbi Morse[src]
"Fitz is here."
"It's the Spy's Goodbye."
Lance Hunter and Bobbi Morse[src]
"They've wiped out almost 30 square kilometers of forest just to make room for this place. You wonder why the planet's dying."
"Got that right, mate. You and Jemma watch that documentary I mentioned?"
"Oh, yes! The one about the Amazon? It ..."
"And you'll talk about it later."
Leo Fitz, Lance Hunter and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 3.14: Watchdogs

"I kept my part of the deal, now I expect you to keep yours. I want weaponry, and not that Stark Industries reissue crap, I'm talking about the big guns, so we can finally hunt down these freaks."
"Yes, freaks. If everything goes as planned, we'll all get what we want, Mr. Blake."
―Felix Blake and Giyera[src]

Episode 3.15: Spacetime

"Time is an illusion. It's how we perceive the fourth dimension. Simmons."
"It's mathematics. He's talking about space-time."
"How do you... How can I explain this? Right. We're 3D, yeah? Okay, but imagine... imagine we lived in a 2-dimensional existence... flat, just like a piece of paper. We wouldn't be able to conceive of three dimensions, of... of... of a... a cube or anything that's not 2-dimensional, okay? Yeah. Right, so, we flat paper people would perceive this 3-dimensional cube as many separate 2-dimensional moments. As time passing... the point on the line traveling through space and time."
"But, in fact, the cube, the line is fixed."
"Yeah, it's just sitting there. There's no future. There's no past. It just... it just is. And nothing you can do will change that."
"You're hurting my brain."
Leo Fitz, Jemma Simmons and Melinda May[src]
"Got to admit... this time stuff's always been a little over my head. Like in "Terminator," if John Connor's alive and able to send his friend back in time to save his mom to make sure he's born, doesn't that mean he doesn't have to?"
"I, uh, I never saw the original "Terminator.""
"You're off the team."
Phil Coulson and Lincoln Campbell[src]
"Maybe some things are inevitable."
Jemma Simmons[src]
"With Mack on bed rest, we could use the extra muscle."
"Well, he's the only one with extra muscles, but I'll come anyway."
Daisy Johnson and Phil Coulson[src]
"What's so pressing that couldn't wait a few days, Gideon?"
"Well, you know me. I seize opportunity. This state-of-the-art prosthetic contains some hardware manufactured by you here at Transia. The nerve-wire interface, to be precise."
"And I'm aware your company's been working on an exoskeletal limb-assist prototype for the Defense Department using this same technology."
Rowan Hamilton and Gideon Malick[src]
"I know you've had people killed. You've even considered shooting someone. But to drain a man's life with your own hand, to feel the life go out inside him...as Mr. Coulson did with me. That look in his eyes. A feeling so powerful, it scared him...enough to leave that hand behind."
Hive to Gideon Malick[src]

Episode 3.16: Paradise Lost

"The Sturnus vulgaris, or European Starling, one of America's scariest invasive species."
"They're just birds."
"Birds can be scary. Imagine a flock of a million coming to peck your eyes out with their tiny, little beaks."
Jemma Simmons and Phil Coulson[src]
"Is there something wrong, sir?"
"You were there. You saw."
""We do what we have to do." That's your words."
"Yeah. And that's what I've been telling myself."
"And now you don't believe that that's true?"
"It was true for you. You were left no choice on that planet. You did the right thing, but I crossed the line. Ward deserved to be punished, but no one deserves to have the life..."
"No, he did deserve it. He did deserve to have his chest caved in...no question."
"That's not the point. It was payback. That's not what we do here."
"Well, what was the alternative? I mean, letting him live, letting him win?"
"Don't you see? When I killed him, he did. I knew it would come back to haunt me, I just didn't think it would actually come back to haunt me."
Leo Fitz and Phil Coulson[src]
"Well, most of what I stole was junk...but this was interesting. I give you the alien thingamajig and you give me the crystal."
"That's Kree."
JT James and Daisy Johnson[src]
"What does it do?"
"Well, if I could figure that out, I would be doing that instead of this. But from what I can gather, it was snatched up by this ancient that you're badgering me about ...after the Kree were killed or driven out or whatever."
Daisy Johnson and JT James[src]
"He can control anything in his line of sight."
"Non-biological objects."
"Yes, non-biological objects and the like, but he can't make you hurt yourself."
Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz[src]
"You put together the Secret Warriors Initiative for a reason."
Lincoln Campbell to Daisy Johnson[src]

Episode 3.17: The Team

"This god has outlived..."
"I've met gods. Gods bleed."
Gideon Malick and Phil Coulson[src]
"Who needs space? Because I've got something magnificent right here."
Leo Fitz to Jemma Simmons[src]
"We were good together, and yet it took so little to split our team apart. I have failed them"
"This is being a leader. You want to protect everyone but you can't. People get hurt. Today it wasn't your fault."
"Doesn't feel that way."
Daisy Johnson and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 3.18: The Singularity

"He was fond of you, Grant Ward."
"And I'm glad he's dead."
"He is, too. In a way. Grant was a thirsty soul. And he suffered for it."
Hive and Daisy Johnson[src]
"You want me to wear a suicide vest?"
"It's only if Hive infects you. And, technically, a suicide vest is something you control."
"So it's a murder vest."
Lincoln Campbell and Phil Coulson[src]
"When did you..."
"I thought it would be cool if the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. had a shield. Fitz agreed, so..."
Melinda May and Phil Coulson[src]
"Now I want your honest opinion on this, what do you think of the name Inferno? I like it, but I don't love it. Firestarter, well, feels a little nineties, and Burning Man well that would have been perfect if it wasn't for some bloody desert hippy-fest."

Episode 3.19: Failed Experiments

"The world fears our kind of power because not everyone has it. Only billionaires can build iron suits. Only the military can make super soldiers, which can only lead to a war of its own, whereas I plan to apply a more, uh, collectivist philosophy."
"If I need a gun, I'll take one."
Melinda May[src]

Episode 3.20: Emancipation

"End of the line Inhuman! There's nowhere left to run."
"I suppose there's always hell. Well look at that, a real hot noise. But serious, who follows a stranger down a dark ally dressed as pups, I mean on principle alone I can't let this end well for ya."
Watchdogs and Hellfire[src]
"Their emancipation will be my gift to you."
Hive to Daisy Johnson[src]
"Keep the faith, Alphonso Mackenzie."
Elena Rodriguez to Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Episode 3.21: Absolution

"Your work...it's too slow."
"Well, I'm sorry we all don't have superspeed."
"Oh, this isn't about superspeed. This is about your turtle speed. You work and then you stare and work and then more staring. We have to go."
Elena Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Episode 3.22: Ascension

"Crank the heating up to a hundred degrees Fahrenheit and we're free to move about as we please."
"You so want us to go out there on a hunch and hope those things don't rip us apart?"
"It's not a hunch, it's science. It's a science hunch."
―Holden Radcliffe and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]
"I have a weapon in place on this plane that's designed to kill you. So if you shoot me, I can't tell you what that is. But you won't see it coming."
Leo Fitz to Giyera[src]
"People that are under sway...they're not in control of their actions. They're not bad people. Well...except you. You were a murderous wank before all this."
Leo Fitz to Giyera[src]
"I did tell you. A few times."
Leo Fitz to Giyera after shooting him[src]
"Saving the girl I love and the world at the same time, seems pretty right to me."
―Lincoln Campbell to Daisy Johnson[src]
"Do you like animals?"
"Your dad made this. It's a robin, like you."
Daisy Johnson and Robin Hinton[src]
"I actually wanted to introduce you to a friend of mine, he has a practice near here, I think you'd get along, he likes animals too."
"You're too kind."
"I'm just keeping a promise."
―Daisy Johnson and Polly Hinton[src]
"This is based on an old S.H.I.E.L.D. program, poor kids have had a lot of friends die, maybe they didn't have to."
"Is that what we're celebrating today? The inclusion of your new colleague Fitz on this project?"
"No Aida, today, today's your birthday."
―Holden Radcliffe and Aida[src]

Season Four

"And for you, Direct... uh, Agent Coulson, with new bells and whistles. And the directions will be there when you boot it up."
Leo Fitz to Phil Coulson[src]
"If your boyfriend wants to fix his ride up, might want to go over there and find scraps."
―Diego to Daisy Johnson[src]
"They say when the Rider burns you, he burns your soul. And a soul can never heal."
"You don't get to decide who deserves to die."
"I'm not the one who decides."
Quake and Ghost Rider[src]
"I didn't ask for this, this curse. But vengeance calls."
―Ghost Rider[src]
"Watch out. Vengeance is coming."
―Ghost Rider[src]
"Why do I, level red, have to go through you, level orange, to request hardware? Shouldn't red be higher than orange?"
"Well, orange encompasses both red and yellow, so... It's hard to explain, but the Director didn't want to use numbers because he didn't want any team member to feel less than."
"But you do have a higher clearance than me."
"Only in most instances."
Melinda May and Jemma Simmons[src]

Episode 4.02: Meet the New Boss

"A team that trusts, is a team that triumphs."
―Jeffrey Mace[src]
"We have a drug that can help those bones heal faster."
Alphonso Mackenzie to Daisy Johnson[src]

"I said the new director should be a powered person the public could trust, and they came up with you."
"And now you're stuck with me."
―Jeffrey Mace and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 4.03: Uprising

"You know what happens to people during a blackout? They think they can get away with whatever they want."
"That nothing can stop them."
Robbie Reyes and Daisy Johnson[src]
"This is a PR nightmare. We're only a month away from reintroducing S.H.I.E.L.D. to the public."
"People's lives could be at stake, and you're worried about bad publicity? Who the hell are you, anyway?"
"That's Burrows from Public Relations. It's his job to worry about bad publicity."
Burrows, Alphonso Mackenzie and Jeffrey Mace[src]
"A team divided is a team defeated."
Jeffrey Mace[src]
"So many people looking for an excuse to hate."
Elena Rodriguez[src]
"I don't get hurt. You gave me a pretty bad gash at the junkyard, now.."
"Not a scratch."
"I've been stabbed, shot, run over, twice. Next day I'm good as new."
Ghost Rider and Quake[src]

Episode 4.04: Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire

"I was lighting fuses long before I was the fuse."
"Can't be a standard Magnum under the hood. That's got to be at least a 426 Hemi."
Alphonso Mackenzie about the Hell Charger[src]
"Damn, not even a dent. I wouldn't mind having a superpower like that for a day or two."
Alphonso Mackenzie about Hell Charger[src]
"The Watchdogs have the right idea, so I struck a deal with them. Help them hunt and kill every Inhuman. Hunted like the animals that we are. And I'm gonna be the last one to go."
"You hate yourself that much?"
"I don't hate myself. I hate all of us."
Hellfire to Quake[src]
"I don't know who the hell you think you are, but you just made a big mistake."
"Funny, I was gonna say the same thing. Without the accent."
Hellfire and Ghost Rider[src]
"Did two fire dudes just drop into a warehouse full of fireworks?"
"You had to see that coming."
Alphonso Mackenzie and Phil Coulson about Ghost Rider and Hellfire[src]

Episode 4.05: Lockup

"Senator, I promise you that I am the man for the job, because I'm not just a man. I'm an Inhuman."
Jeffrey Mace[src]
"I know what you're doing. Trying to distance yourself from everyone else so they don't drown in your wake? I invented that move. It doesn't work, for one simple reason: Phil Coulson. He found me in that cubicle and dragged me out. He didn't give up on me, and he won't give up on you."
"I never wanted that."
"Mm-mm, no. You don't get to choose who cares about you. And Coulson... he's got a bigger heart than most. Lincoln wouldn't want you killing yourself over what happened."
Melinda May to Quake[src]

Episode 4.06: The Good Samaritan

"What the hell?!"
"Director's orders. Stairwell's clear."
"I'm sorry. Well, in that case, you should check under the microscope and in the fridge, 'cause those Inhumans can be tricky bastards. Yeah, you can tell the Director this is just one giant snark hunt."
"Hallway's clear."
"That's British for a bloody waste of time."
Leo Fitz and a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent[src]
"He claims he made a deal with the devil."
"Which is nonsense."
"You know, the rationalist in me wants to agree, but the skull on fire makes a pretty compelling argument for "hail Satan"."
Phil Coulson and Leo Fitz[src]
"And you're right, there was someone there when I came to. But it wasn't a good samaritan; it was the devil. Whatever was inside him, he passed it into me."
―Robbie Reyes to Gabe Reyes[src]

"Please be careful with my baby."

"Nathanson, m'am. What do you want me to do?"
"Get lost, Nathanson."
Melinda May to Nathan B. Nathanson[src]
"Look, my job is to keep people safe."
"Mine, too. So, first we sharpen the axe, and then we chop the tree."
Alphonso Mackenzie and Jeffrey Mace[src]
"It heals itself. Scientifically impossible self-healing car."
"That only works when I'm the Rider."
Daisy Johnson and Robbie Reyes[src]
"Look, if the internet is a garden hose, this book is Niagara Falls, blasting the universe's deepest thoughts through your eyeballs."
"It's a piece of technology, a tool."
"So's a grenade, until it's in the hands of a child."
Holden Radcliffe and Melinda May[src]
"She is the tech we need to save them."
Melinda May to Holden Radcliffe[src]
"Alternating probe and coupling lasers, built exactly to your specifications at 593.5 nanometers."
Holden Radcliffe to Aida[src]
"I'm building an inter-dimensional gateway with an android I've created. If this works, I could die happy."
Holden Radcliffe[src]
"You're right. I won't survive this without you. But the truth is you need me, too. We had a deal! How about a new one? Give me my vengeance on Eli. Settle my score, and I'll settle yours... All of yours!"
Robbie Reyes to the Spirit of Vengeance[src]

Episode 4.08: The Laws of Inferno Dynamics

"You better be. Because the Devil is coming for you!"
Eli Morrow and Robbie Reyes[src]

Episode 4.10: The Patriot

"Actually, we used a modified version of that formula you confiscated from Agent Johnson's father."
Glenn Talbot[src]
"The decision was made that the new Director had to be enhanced, no candidate fit that criteria. So we made one."
Glenn Talbot[src]
"The president tasked me with finding the next Captain America. Not an easy job! But I did it, I delivered a Patriot, a bonafide American hero!"
Glenn Talbot[src]
"They told me it would make me strong, and it did."
Jeffrey Mace[src]

Episode 4.11: Wake Up

"Our May Life-Model Decoy should get us the Darkhold, eventually. And if something goes wrong, then we have our safety net."
"You're referring to the other android, now in operation."
"Yes, our second LMD."
Holden Radcliffe and Aida[src]

Episode 4.12: Hot Potato Soup

"It's made of light, but it's functioning like a corporeal, biological brain. Quantum energy storing data..it's as if synapses are interacting"
Leo Fitz[src]
"I wish I could take credit, but this was all Aida and the Darkhold."
Holden Radcliffe[src]
"Everything in the original brains, memories, knowledge, desires, is contained in the quantum brains."
Holden Radcliffe[src]
"It was Operation Hot Potato. Pass it back and forth, keep it moving."
LT Koenig[src]

Episode 4.13: BOOM

"I'm a team player, I'm willing to play any position that gets us the win."
―Jeffrey Mace[src]

Leo Fitz, Jemma Simmons and Daisy Johnson[src]

―Phil Coulson[src]


"I think I figured out my place on the team. I'm the blocker."
―Jeffrey Mace[src]

Episode 4.14: The Man Behind the Shield

"All of these things you've done, all of the energy spent, the hatred. And you know what the funny thing about it is? I have no idea who the hell you are. I've been on hundreds of missions in my time. This one you're so upset about, I was sent to retrieve an object. If I'm being honest, I don't even remember what it was. As far as I'm concerned, you're just another red shirt like so many others who tried unsuccessfully to stop me from saving the world. 'Cause that's what I do. So...cool origin story, bro, but this means nothing to me."
―Phil Coulson to Anton Ivanov[src]
