Runaways

Episode 1.01: Reunion

Dialogue

"Hey, Janet, have you done something different with your hair?"
"Thank you for noticing, Robert."
"Forgive me if I'm too busy changing the world to notice that your bangs have grown out."
Robert Minoru, Janet Stein and Victor Stein[src]

Episode 1.02: Rewind

Spoken by Janet Stein

"It's good to hear your voice. I can't wait to see you tonight even with him there."
―Janet Stein to Robert Minoru[src]

Dialogue

"It'll all be over soon. In another year I'll be off to college, and I'll never have to see his smug dickface again."
"Chase, he's your father."
"Oh, right. My bad. He slammed a fork into the table this morning instead of my head. So, yeah, progress."
"He hasn't laid a finger on you in a while now."
"Yeah, 'cause he knows if he tried, I'd kick his ass."
"I'm not saying he isn't difficult, but that's the price of having a mind like his."
"I love you, Mom, I do, but Dad is a first-class, grade-A, platinum-card-carrying asshole. That's his genius. Who's calling you? I thought Dad didn't let you have friends."
Chase Stein and Janet Stein[src]
"Maybe you could reach out to someone? Fresh perspective might be good. It's okay to ask for help."
"Help? Is that a joke? Who could possibly be able to help me? I'm sorry, Janet, I'm just under a tremendous amount of pressure, not that that's an excuse."
―Janet Stein and Victor Stein[src]
"I'm not sure why it would cause a power surge. It's not like it's plugged into a wall."
"It's a lot of energy swirling around. Who knows."
Robert Minoru and Janet Stein[src]

Episode 1.03: Destiny

Spoken about Janet Stein

"Have you spoken to Victor?"
"He's not picking up his phone. Neither is his idiot wife. Or my idiot husband."
Leslie Dean and Tina Minoru[src]

Dialogue

"You were having trouble with the box yesterday, and it kind of seemed like maybe it wasn't the box that was the problem."
"I need you on my side, Janet. I carry you. I carry this whole family, and the least you could possibly do is give me some support."
―Janet Stein and Victor Stein[src]
"I'm ready to start living my life with you. I'm ready to tell Tina."
"But we never talked about Taking things to the next level?"
"I have to make sure that none of this blows back on Chase."
"And then there's PRIDE."
"PRIDE won't matter for much longer. We're about to break ground, be done with this thing. Then we'll finally be able to start putting ourselves first."
"I just I just need some time to process, that's all."
Robert Minoru and Janet Stein[src]

Episode 1.04: Fifteen

Dialogue

"Why not just tell us the box wasn't working?"
"He wanted to, but I talked him out of it. I was sure that he fixed it."
Geoffrey Wilder and Janet Stein[src]

Episode 1.06: Metamorphosis

Spoken about Janet Stein

"Everyone knows I'm a genius. Although here's a question my superior intellect is of no help in solving. What should I do about the fact that my wife is sleeping with another man? That's right, Janet. I know everything. Any of you know how easy it is to hack a cell phone? You'd think that the man she's banging would. After all, he helped create the phone. Isn't that right, Robert?"
Victor Stein[src]
"You hear about our parents? They're having an affair."
"What? My mom and your dad?"
"No, my mom and..."
"Oh, my God, and my mom?"
"No, my mom, your dad."
Chase Stein and Nico Minoru[src]

Dialogue

"Jaguar on the side of the road, or the cougar parked inside!"
"Really, Robert?"
"Sorry. I meant it as a compliment."
"Of course you did, because you are the sweetest man I have ever met."
"Well, you married Victor Stein. You're working off a limited sample size."
"True, although lately Victor's been a different guy. Nice to me, great with Chase. Cheating's much harder when your husband isn't being a dick."
"That's why now is when you tell him, not when he's in a manic phase, or violent."
"I never said he was violent."
"You didn't have to. You think I didn't notice the bruises? The ones you blamed on the car door? Walking into the chair?"
"I know, I'm sorry. I never meant to keep anything from you. I just..."
"None of this is your fault. He's a monster, Janet."
"And how do you think he'll react when I tell him I'm leaving him?"
"That's why I got this."
"That's a little extreme, Robert."
"It's just a precaution. You can't go on living like this."
Robert Minoru and Janet Stein[src]
"No, you're not okay. You've got a brain tumor."
"What? The headaches... And you knew?"
"He told me not to tell. We've been working together on a project."
"Don't blame Chase. I'm his dad."
"Victor, if I had known... If you let me in..."
"Get away from me."
"But you're sick. You need help. All this time..."
"Mom. He wants you to leave."
Chase Stein, Janet Stein and Victor Stein[src]

Episode 1.07: Refraction

Spoken about Janet Stein

"You could work it out."
"We could, but it's not what I want, Nico. Not anymore."
"What, I mean, you're, like, in love with Janet Stein? I mean, come on. Oh, my God, you're in love with Janet Stein."
Nico Minoru and Robert Minoru[src]

Dialogue

"I thought the side effects of new meds involved mild nausea and swollen ankles, not a complete personality change. What the hell kind of medicine did that guy give him?"
"I have no idea. I'm just glad it's working. I keep waiting for the old Victor to return."
"Well, maybe we'll get lucky and he won't. Though that would make it harder for you to leave."
"If I wanted to walk out, your father has given me more than enough excuses."
"So, you're no longer into married software engineers with a fondness for mandals?"
"Robert was kind when my life was short on kindness. It was an escape, nothing more."
"Meanwhile, Dad was dying of a brain tumor, and you didn't notice."
"I feel terrible that I missed the signs, but I've suffered a long time trying to hold us all together. So, if there's a chance we can be a happy family again, I'm not gonna let anything stand in our way."
Chase Stein and Janet Stein[src]
"Do you think this is made with agave?"
"Are you Stacey Yorkes all of a sudden?"
"Well, processed sugar's the devil's jet fuel."
Victor Stein and Janet Stein[src]
"I'm glad to hear Victor's taking care of his health. Now I need to know that you're focused on the health of your marriage."
"And why do you need to know that? PRIDE isn't the only thing that's happening in the world."
"But it's the most important. Not just for us, but for all of us."
"I think that you can leave the rest of humanity out of my extramarital affair, thank you. I was sad. I was lonely. So was Robert. It happened. And it's over."
"You'll tell him that."
"Unless you'd like to."
Leslie Dean and Janet Stein[src]
"I don't understand why you're not returning my calls."
"Oh, come on. Robert, we both know how hard this has been. For both of us. But now that it's all out in the open, we can move forward."
"What?"
"When I think about it, it was such a dumb dream. I was gonna spend my life doing research on gravitational fields. Even just saying that out loud, it sounds really embarrassing."
"It's not! You could go back to that."
"No, I don't think I could. I'm Janet Stein now. For better or worse. Remember that vow?"
"When he hurts you - and Chase"
"Not anymore. He's changed."
"But you are locked in a cycle of abuse. This is how it always goes."
"I appreciate that you've clearly read a number of scholarly articles and self-help books, but this situation is impossible to understand from the outside, so I'm not gonna try to explain it. I've been given an extra moment. I'm gonna take it. Goodbye, Robert."
Robert Minoru and Janet Stein[src]

Episode 1.08: Tsunami

Spoken about Janet Stein

"Can't exactly call the police or paramedics unless you want your mother taken away in handcuffs."
"She saved me!"
"She was also having an affair, and shot her husband using a gun registered to her lover."
Tina Minoru and Chase Stein[src]

Dialogue

"Actually, this is all your fault! Whatever Jonah juice he injected into Victor did something to him, something terrible, so if anyone is to blame here, it's you!"
"We both know that's not gonna happen. Nice try, though."
"No offense, Janet, but the team can survive without you. It's not like you ever really brought anything to the table."
"Is that really necessary?"
"No, no, it's okay. I'm glad she finally said it to my face. You've always judged me for being a stay-at-home mom, but the truth is, I could've done something else. I could've invented something and changed the world, but instead my life became about managing the brilliant Victor Stein. So you guys, you all took Jonah's gifts and you got success and fame, and I got an abusive megalomaniac!"
"We know Victor wasn't easy, but if you'd come to us before, we could've helped."
"Really? Would any of you have actually stood up to him?"
"I guess now we'll never know."
"You know what? Shut up, Catherine!"
"It's time to embrace the light, Janet."
"What about Dale? Look at Dale. What's so great about Dale? What's Dale ever done for PRIDE?"
"Research that's proven crucial to our mission, not to mention patenting a mind-wipe drug that everyone here's found pretty valuable."
"Um, we developed that patent together, in case anybody was gonna vote against me."
"We did. Of course."
"But when push came to shove, neither one of you could save Victor."
"We only needed to save Victor because you shot him, Janet."
―Janet Stein, Jonah, Tina Minoru, Catherine Wilder, Geoffrey Wilder, Leslie Dean, Dale Yorkes and Stacey Yorkes[src]
"You don't need to do this."
"Yes, I actually do. This is what's best for everyone."
"Not for me."
"Oh, that's sweet. You're sweet, but this is this is my time."
"Then you should at least get to say goodbye. He's gonna miss you terribly."
"How am I even supposed to face him, let alone say goodbye?"
"Think about what it'll do to him if he never gets to have that moment."
Robert Minoru and Janet Stein[src]
"I have to say goodbye to my son."
"Absolutely not."
"I'm not gonna tell him anything. I just want to hug him for a final time. He's my baby. Please."
"She deserves that chance. That's what we would want."
―Janet Stein, Jonah and Catherine Wilder[src]

Episode 1.09: Doomsday

Spoken by Janet Stein

"Chase, run!"
―Janet Stein to Chase Stein upon Jonah's arrival[src]

Dialogue

"Does my voice really sound like that?"
"When you lie, yeah, it does. Where is he? What is happening with Dad?"
"They took him."
"Oh, so he could be dead?"
"I don't think so. The man who's taking care of him is very invested in his recovery."
"Jonah? What the hell is that guy's story?"
"Chase, I know that this is the most difficult thing that you have ever been through, but I am begging you, do not ask questions. The less you know, the better, about Jonah, about PRIDE, about your father. Just do not rock the boat in any way. Making waves is only gonna..."
"Put Dad in jeopardy, I get it."
"I was gonna say put you in harm's way. Losing my husband, I could survive. But losing my son, I could not."
"What? You're actually worried that I might die? Who are these people, really?"
"They're no one you need to worry about if you just listen to me."
"Okay, but Mom, how did we get here? How do we make it stop?"
"I wish I knew. But I need you to be careful. Can you just promise me, just please be careful?"
"Okay."
―Janet Stein and Chase Stein[src]
"Mom, what are you doing? There's no need to involve the housekeeper in any of this."
"PRIDE doesn't have a cleaner? I thought every group of shadeball criminals had one."
"I think my membership's been revoked until your father's back on his feet. Turns out they didn't appreciate me for me."
Chase Stein and Janet Stein[src]
"We promise you, everything we've done, we've done for you."
"How can you even say that?"
"Because it's true."
"We love you."
Leslie Dean, Nico Minoru, Robert Minoru and Janet Stein[src]

Episode 1.10: Hostile

Spoken about Janet Stein

"I'm not sure if there's anything to talk about, Leslie."
"Yeah, trust level is pretty low right now."
"It's less than zero, and I'm not just talking about me and Janet."
Dale Yorkes, Stacey Yorkes and Tina Minoru[src]

Dialogue

"Did you two know that Molly had that strength?"
"No! We were shocked."
"And how do we know that Jonah isn't her father, too?"
―Janet Stein and Stacey Yorkes[src]
"The kids have pieced at least some of this together. That's why they were at the dig site."
"We have put them in so much danger!"
Geoffrey Wilder and Janet Stein[src]
"What about the kids?"
"If we turn the cops on them, they'll just think they're in trouble. Make them even less likely to come home."
―Janet Stein and Geoffrey Wilder[src]
"Jonah needs Victor healthy. He said as much. He's not gonna let him die. It's your call. If you want out..."
"No. Tina's right. I'm here."
Leslie Dean and Janet Stein[src]
