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

Episode 3.18: The Singularity

Spoken about Holden Radcliffe

"He was lead researcher on parasitic organisms at the agrochemical lab we raided, based on his expertise we believe he is the key to finding a cure for Daisy."
Jemma Simmons[src]

Spoken by Holden Radcliffe

"I believe that art and science are entwined. The Devil, and God, is in the details. I don't want the people to see my work and know it works. If they gave a second glance, I want it to be out of awe, not disgust."
―Holden Radcliffe to Jemma Simmons[src]
"Bird's visual acuity is superior to mammals; I got envious."
―Holden Radcliffe[src]
"I see how it's surveillance capabilities are appealing, but there was a company that had something eerily similar, Cybertek, heard of them? Turns out they were HYDRA. They connected explosives to soldiers eyes, violence for violence sake, an ugly misuse of science."
―Holden Radcliffe to Jemma Simmons[src]

Dialogue

"We've only just begun that kind of DNA modification, to make something of your kind that's... We can only dream."
"You don't need to dream anymore."
―Holden Radcliffe and Hive[src]

Episode 3.19: Failed Experiments

Dialogue

"The genetic make up of Inhumans in incredibly complex, we were bound to run into complications!"
"You assured me this would work."
"Yes, it would have if I'd been provided with the right ingredients."
―Holden Radcliffe and Hive[src]
"You were going to handle this thing! Now we're both gonna die!"
"No ones dying here today!"
―Holden Radcliffe and Daisy Johnson[src]

Episode 3.20: Emancipation

Dialogue

"These Primitives are an Abomination of science and a very poor reflection of my talents."

―Holden Radcliffe and Hive[src]

Episode 3.21: Absolution

Spoken by Holden Radcliffe

"Right, listen up. This is called a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface. Grunt along with me... "Unified...""
Holden Radcliffe to two Primitives[src]

Dialogue

"Did S.H.I.E.L.D. send you?! Did they?!"
"Yes, I'm with S.H.I.E.L.D.!"
"Oh thank god, take me with you, you have to, please!"
―Holden Radcliffe and Melinda May[src]
"I can tell by your mustache that you're a man of importance and not to be trifled with, so I will be absolutely honest with you... the process is irreversible."
"And I can tell by your beady little eyes that you're a worm. So let me be absolutely honest with you. If you don't find a solution to this problem, you're gonna end up looking like one of those mouth-breathers you made. You understand?"
"How could I not? [Talbot leaves] Almost as scary as Hive, that one."
―Holden Radcliffe and Glenn Talbot[src]

Episode 3.22: Ascension

Dialogue

"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]
"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]

Episode 4.07: Deals With Our Devils

Spoken by Holden Radcliffe

"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]

Dialogue

"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."

―Holden Radcliffe and Melinda May[src]

Episode 4.09: Broken Promises

Spoken about Holden Radcliffe

"Someone needs to make Radcliffe watch all the Terminator movies."
"Even
Salvation?"
"He brought this onto himself."
Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Dialogue

"I know what you're doing, Doctor. You came here to end my life."
"Well, that's not... true, Aida. We simply wanted to make a few upgrades, that's all."
"I made a few upgrades of my own."
Aida and Holden Radcliffe[src]
"To Aida."
"To Aida. Is everything okay, Doctor?"
"It will be. It's just... We were so close. She had it in her hand, Aida in her hand! She just couldn't get out with it."
"Your previous model had the Darkhold book in her hand."
"And all the answers it holds. I've only glimpsed it, but it opened my eyes to possibilities beyond my wildest imaginings. It can show us how-"
"How to live forever."
"Well, it's a bit more complicated, but yes. Man could, once and for all, break the bonds of his mortal restraints."
"Is it still possible to make such a leap without the Darkhold?"
"I'm afraid not which is why I took a chance and had Aida make a play for it. It was a risk we had to take."
"But she failed."
"Ah, through no fault of her own. She played her part to perfection, right down to my little speech about how the Darkhold was making her a real girl. Oscar-worthy stuff. Though poor Fitz he was quite down in the dumps afterwards. But I had to protect myself switch to the long game."
"Will there be another opportunity to acquire the Darkhold?"
"After today they're never gonna let me near it again. Which is why I'm counting on her to get it for me."
―Holden Radcliffe and Aida[src]

Episode 4.10: The Patriot

Dialogue

"Agent May is resilient. She never stops fighting, yet she showed more distress before she woke than during the fight."
"That's odd."
"No. It makes perfect sense. The flaw isn't in the hardware. It was in May herself. The simulation was rejected because Agent May thrives in conflict and chaos, not tranquility. She's a warrior."
"You're saying fighting against me stabilized her?"
"Precisely. If we want her to accept the simulation, we need to give her an opponent to fight, an enemy to vanquish, a dragon to slay."
"Shall I design a dragon?"
"No. I have something else in mind."
―Holden Radcliffe and Aida[src]

Episode 4.11: Wake Up

Dialogue

"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 4.15: Self Control

Dialogue

"I've observed much human behavior. And the more I see, the harder it gets to find a logic to it."
"Oh, you sweet girl, there is no logic to love, anger, wonder, joy--"
"I understand the concepts, but I don't feel them myself. And unfortunately they've created a paradox in my programming."
"What do you mean? Explain."
"My two main parameters are in opposition due to human emotions. I was programmed to protect the Framework but also to preserve your life above all others."
"Well, how is that a contradiction?"
"Because the greatest threat to the Framework, Doctor, is you."
Aida and Holden Radcliffe[src]
