A collection of quotes of former Lighthouse resident Deke Shaw.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Episode 5.01: Orientation Part One

Spoken by Deke Shaw

"I was not prepared for that, I got to admit. You pack a big punch for such a small package. I got to read the fine print next time. I hate wasting the charge on that thing. Honestly, I wasn't trying to hurt you, but you had a lead pipe at the ready, and I can't ri... Okay. I guess we'll stick with the first impression."
―Deke Shaw talking to Melinda May[src]
"That ought to keep the Roaches away for a while. Smell drives them nuts, I think. But you kick me again, and I'm gonna leave you to be their dessert. Now, this is gonna hurt like hell, but it's better than the other way we can do it. I don't know where you flushed out of, but in this sector, you can't go 10 feet without a Metric... Hey. Don't move. One inch the wrong way and you're a vacancy."
―Deke Shaw talking to Melinda May[src]

Dialogue

"Buddy! Just go with it. I've been looking everywhere for you guys. Man, what a mess back there, huh? These poor suckers. Virgil you know, from R&R? He was trying to scam these guys out of some tokens. This one came running to me begging for help, the poor thing. When I get my hands on that no-good louse, he's gonna have some explaining to do. So where is Virgil, anyway?"
"He's dead."
"Good. Good. Got what he deserved, then, didn't he, for trying to drag these poor transfers up from processing into the wet works just to steal their Metrics."
―Deke Shaw and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 5.02: Orientation Part Two

Spoken by Deke Shaw

"The only way to not die is to blend in and work hard, and you can't do either of those things without these."
―Deke Shaw to Phil Coulson, Melinda May, and Jemma Simmons[src]
"I had to rebuild the software from scratch because Kasius had the historical archives erased. But I was able to get my hands on the servers. I gathered bits of data here and there, and the rest is guesswork."
―Deke Shaw telling Daisy Johnson about his Framework program[src]
"You see, I'm the one person who actually pieced their history together. You want to know what kind of force could crack a planet in half? It was you."
―Deke Shaw to Daisy Johnson[src]

Dialogue

"We got to come up with a system, 'cause I'm not doing this every time we take out a Kree!"
"The system is, "No more dead Kree"! We're two past maximum!"
Alphonso Mackenzie and Deke Shaw[src]

Spoken about Deke Shaw

"Deke. He seems to know this place dialed in. He might know."
"He's too afraid to make noises."
"Yeah, but that's 'cause he's protecting himself. He has a scam up and running."
"He's afraid we're gonna blow it for him. I agree"
Daisy Johnson, Elena Rodriguez, and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 5.03: A Life Spent

Spoken by Deke Shaw

"Sorry, sweetheart. I'm just playing the long game."
―Deke Shaw to Daisy Johnson[src]

Dialogue

"Well, actually, not according to the multiverse theory. You probably never heard of it, but in quantum physics, there's a theory that, for every universe, there are infinite parallel universes. So in my universe, you destroyed the planet. Maybe that just hasn't happened in..."
"So what universe did that just happen in? Mine or yours?"
―Deke Shaw and Daisy Johnson[src]

Episode 5.04: A Life Earned

Spoken by Deke Shaw

"I was 9 okay? When my mother got dragged away and murdered. Kasius got rid of all the elders, all the smart people, and she was one of them. And after she was gone, my dad took up the cause. He carried the torch for her. And as I got older, I begged him not to. I said that they were gonna get him, too, and I was right. He got sent to the roaches, just like the rest of them."
―Deke Shaw telling Phil Coulson about his parents' deaths[src]

Dialogue

"I want to thank you for bringing her to me. But Sinara is concerned about the prophecy that others from the past might have come."
"Guess that means you are, too."
"Prophecies are hard to decipher. Could be two people, could be twenty."
"Well, maybe the prophecy wouldn't be such a mystery if you didn't kill everyone that knew anything about it."
―Deke Shaw and Kasius[src]

Spoken about Deke Shaw

"I know a guy."
Phil Coulson[src]
"That's a good story. But stories are what you do, so excuse me if I don't buy it just yet."
Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 5.07: Together or Not at All

Spoken by Deke Shaw

"We are so stupid!"
―Deke Shaw[src]

Dialogue

"This is the guy who sold me to Kasius."
"Oh, kill him. He's a snake."
"I'm gonna cut his throat open."
"I'm a pragmatist! Alright. Just listen. Just listen. I told you I would lead you to your friend. There she is. And I stopped you from doing something drastic, that would've gotten a lot of people killed in the process."
Daisy Johnson, Jemma Simmons, Leo Fitz and Deke Shaw[src]
"All right. So you ready to take this thing out?"
"What, me? I'm not a pilot."
"What? You don't know how to fly this thing?"
"I never said I did."
Phil Coulson, Deke Shaw, Daisy Johnson[src]

Episode 5.08: The Last Day

Dialogue

"Hey. What are they doing with the shard?"
"Who, Coulson and May? Hell if I know, but if you ask me, they got their priorities way out of whack."
"No, that's not what I mean. That belonged to my mom. Why doesn't my dad have it? After my mom died, he always kept it close."
"Don't overthink it, kid. It's pretty dangerous out there in the wastelands. He probably just left it here for safekeeping."
"No. Before the Blues exiled him, I begged him for that stupid rock so I'd have something to remember her by, and he said that he couldn't trust me with it."
"You need to calm down."
"No, you need to stop lying to me. He wouldn't leave it in your locker. So what the hell did you do to my father?"
―Deke Shaw and Samuel Voss[src]
"I thought you'd be dead."
"Yeah, I guess Voss didn't want anymore of my family's blood on his hands."
"Your dad. Deke, I'm so sorry."
Daisy Johnson and Deke Shaw [src]

Episode 5.09: Best Laid Plans

Dialogue

"Finally starting to get the hang of this whole good guy thing."
"Yeah, just in time for the sky to fall and kill us all. "Perfect timing Deke". What makes you say that?."
"Voss. You let him live."
"Doesn't mean I'm good. Maybe I'm just spineless."
"Killing is never the better option."
"If it can prevent more pain, maybe. I'm sure you've done it. My dad could be very violent, but only when he needed to be. You learn that in the Lighthouse. A life spent, a life earned."
"Never a life saved."
"That's my point. Shouldn't I be able to pull the trigger if I think that person could do more harm?"
"I don't think Voss is a threat to anyone but me."
"Right. No you're right."
Daisy Johnson and Deke Shaw[src]

Spoken about Deke Shaw

"What are we gonna do with Voss?"
"I left that up to Deke."
Melinda May and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 5.10: Past Life

Spoken by Deke Shaw

"I'm kind of trying to do the whole hero thing man! Is that your pep talk? You guys get killed, who saves the world then? I told my parents not to believe in this roach-crap fairy tale, and they went and they died for it anyway. And I'm probably next in line. But there is no way in hell that I'm gonna let some blue Kreeper destroy that machine before I get to see whether or not that damn thing was worth any of this."
―Deke Shaw to Phil Coulson[src]
"Son of a bitch!"
―Deke Shaw[src]

Dialogue

"You two get that thing to Flint. We'll worry about survivors."
"And then kill Kasius."
"Get them to safety."
"And then we kill Kasius? When does that happen? Because, some of us aren't getting out of here on a magic rock."
"We won't leave until humanity is in charge of its future."
Phil Coulson and Deke Shaw[src]
"Guns, man! It's like cheating! You shouldn't give these to anyone who isn't a really really good person!"
"You think there be a law."
―Deke Shaw and Melinda May[src]
"You drive me out of my skull, this part of you this impetuous, bullheaded squabb!"
"I was offering backup, genius!"
"No, when the other side of you is a friggin' hero who can't help herself but do good, then be great. The world needs that person to make it home. Just try not to destroy it when you get there."
"It was almost nice knowing you."
"And you're a pain in my ass."
―Deke Shaw and Daisy Johnson[src]
"You know, your parents would be proud of you."
"I'll find out soon enough. But we're about to give 'em a hell of a show."
Phil Coulson and Deke Shaw talking before they head back to the past[src]

Episode 5.11: All the Comforts of Home

Spoken by Deke Shaw

"All right, I got some of it right. Barkeep! I'd like to try a beer, a real one, please."
―Deke Shaw to Mike[src]

Dialogue

"I thought you'd be, like, emotionally distraught or something."
"Emotionally distraught? This is awesome! I thought that I was gonna die. But instead, I'm about to go for a walk outside. Also, there is "an outside"."
Daisy Johnson and Deke Shaw[src]
"I'm Noah. I believe saving you from imprisonment was wrong."
"Oh. All right, cool. Well, you seem fun."
Noah and Deke Shaw[src]

"Imagine that."
Chief Wellins and Daisy Johnson[src]

Episode 5.12: The Real Deal

Spoken by Deke Shaw

"It's nearly impossible to get fresh fruits and vegetables. But every year for my birthday, my mom would find me a big, juicy orange."
―Deke Shaw[src]
"I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty freaked out when I punched the coordinates into the phone and it led me into the middle of a grassy field. And it's like, "Can the Quinjet get here a little bit quicker, please?", you know? But I managed to grave the critters."
―Deke Shaw[src]

Dialogue

"I just got to a world that's got ice cream and the sun and orange-scented stuff. So, no. No, no, no. And in case any of you forgot, I already did the heroic sacrifice thing to get you all here. So I'm done."
"I'm not asking you to sacrifice yourself. I just want to borrow your belt buckle."
―Deke Shaw and Leo Fitz[src]

Dialogue

"Deke, are you coming or is it just another play day?"

So I know that you can help Fitz. And I know that you two are gonna be okay. Because "the steps you take don't need to be big"..."
"They just need to take you in the right direction". You're our grandson?"
―Deke Shaw and Jemma Simmons[src]

Episode 5.15: Rise and Shine

Spoken about Deke Shaw

"He's my... Our... Grandson. But... he's the worst!"
"I think he's perfect. Plus, his very existence proves that you and I make it to the Lighthouse and live long enough to raise a daughter. Do you see what this means?"
"Yeah, I do. It means that our daughter's obviously gonna marry some belligerent space goon if she's gonna give birth to a Deke!"
Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons[src]

Episode 5.16: Inside Voices

Dialogue

"I don't see it. None of you looks like me."
"Well, I don't know what to tell you, Grandpappy. I guess your daughter found a real man."

Leo Fitz and Deke Shaw[src]
"Sorry I'm late. I was just just getting all my gear together, but I'm ready to go. Geared up. Mission-ready. I'll just go ahead and go to the command center."

Episode 5.17: The Honeymoon

Dialogue

"Is Daisy here? She's so pretty."
"What now?"
"I want to put my mouth on her mouth and move it around a lot. But I don't want to do that unless she wants to, too, 'cause that's what makes it nice. But I don't think she wants that, 'cause she does not like me one bit."

Dialogue

"The Remorath are Marauders. They're intergalactic scavengers with no planet of their own, so they just take from others, and wherever they go, darkness follows."
"Darkness? That's a little vague."
"Well, it's not the concept of darkness, it's literal darkness, it's literal darkness. It follows them because they're magic, and they can see in the dark, and we can't, so it makes them kill us better with with their claws."
"Did you say "claws"?"
"Yeah. Did I not mention the footlong razor claws? Because, yeah."
"Well, people in the future survive. There must be a way to stop them."
"No, we didn't stop them. We just... We just gave them whatever they wanted, and then said thank you and cleaned up the bodies after they left."

And you trying to fix Coulson, that's great. I love the guy, but if you really want to lead one day, then you got to fix that."
