Inhumans

Episode 1.01: Behold…The Inhumans!

Spoken about Maximus

"Maximus, right or wrong, is dangerous. You think you're being tough with him, you are not. He has the ear of the people, and he undermines your decisions. You're blind to his intentions. That's one of your greatest weaknesses. Regardless, you have my loyalty. Never doubt that."
Karnak to Black Bolt[src]

Spoken by Maximus

"I'm sorry... But you have given me no choice."
―Maximus to Medusa[src]
"You ever wonder, what your life would be like if you hadn't entered that chamber?"
―Maximus to Medusa[src]
"You should have known that this day was coming, but you didn't did you? You've so completely taken me for granted, that you can hardly imagine that I have thoughts of my own. That I can...carry through."
―Maximus to Black Bolt[src]
"I'm not one of them Gorgon! I've never been to Earth, regardless of what my genes might suggest I'm an Inhuman like the rest of you."
―Maximus to Gorgon[src]

Dialogue

"Nothing? You have nothing to say? We need to go to Earth now, we need to strike first. We've been hiding here too long, let's go to our rightful home!"
"We are not going to Earth anytime soon."
―Maximus and Medusa[src]


Episode 1.02: Those Who Would Destroy Us

Episode 1.03: Divide -- And Conquer

Spoken about Maximus

"Esteemed honorary guests, Genetic Council, my brother-in-law Maximus would like me to say a few words on his behalf. Here's what I have to say. Maximus is King. Of no one."
Crystal[src]

Dialogue

"As you know very well, determining the gifts bestowed upon us by the Terrigen Crystals are not always apparent or easily discovered. That said, after comprehensive analysis, we've determined the of nature your transformation."
"I feel no different. No difference whatsoever."
"Maximus, your transformation wasn't made manifest until we looked more into your DNA. It would seem that you are, in fact, no longer Inhuman."
"What? What are you talking about? Of course I'm Inhuman."
"I'm afraid not. You are now, down to the deepest cellular level of your being, merely human."
"But..."
"And, as I'm sure you understand, no human can ever be king of the Inhumans."
Kitang and Maximus[src]

Episode 1.04: Make Way For... Medusa

Dialgoue

"Is that what you tell yourself at night? Why it was acceptable to leave me when my Terrigenesis made me human? "Leaving" isn't the right word. That would imply a proper goodbye. You, like everyone else, abandoned me."
"No one had become a human before."
"But you were my friend! And I was all alone."
"And I'm still your - your friend."
"For how long this time? Time will tell."
Maximus and Tibor[src]

Episode 1.08: ...And Finally: Black Bolt

Dialogue

"How long until you have to return to the scanner?"
"That's for me to know."
"Must be close to an hour by now. Are you willing to die?"
"I can terminate the destruction plan anytime I like. But it will be when I have successfully rounded up our family."
"I am your family. And look at me. Look at what you have done to me. Does it make you feel good to see me this way?"
"Now you are more like me. Almost human. Now you know how it feels when people stare at you, dismiss you. Like you did to me... so long ago."
"You're right. I did treat you like everyone else. I ignored you. I put our friendship behind us. And maybe if I had been a better friend, we wouldn't be here. But here we are."
"You were my only friend. I had no one."
"Which is why... maybe you wanted to be someone."
"King."
"The fill the emptiness inside, but that is not a stable foundation for leadership. If you truly care about Attilan, you would - you would never destroy it!"
Medusa and Maximus[src]


"Many of you know the story of my parents, who had a different vision for the future of Attilan, one of tearing down the walls of class that divide us, a vision that might seem to be shared by Maximus. But in truth, he is willing to endanger you all to achieve his selfish needs. Maximus has forced us into an era of change. But we would like to continue it in a more positive direction. But that next chapter will not be here. Because Maximus has compromised the protective shield that surrounds our home. We can no longer stay on the Moon. It is time for us to return to our homeland - to Earth. And Black Bolt and I will lead the way."
"She's lying. Every word she says is a lie!"
"Because how can you trust a leader who puts his needs before yours?"
"The people will never follow you!"
"Black Bolt and I will ensure that the people of Attilan will survive on Earth."
"Attilan is mine, not yours."
"It's ours."
"If I can't have Attilan, no one will. I will let the dome collapse and suck the life out of every one of you! "
Medusa, Maximus and Auran[src]
