[edit] Quick Summary

When the brilliant scientist, Dr. Franklin Hall, is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in – pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down.

[edit] Best Quotes

  • Skye: I don't ever want to do another pull-up again.
    Grant Ward: You find yourself hanging off the edge of a building twenty storeys up, you'll want to do at least one.
  • Grant Ward: And the attackers?
    Phil Coulson: Invisible.
    Skye: Wait, invisible?! Cool! (Ward stares at her disapprovingly) But terrible.
  • Leo Fitz: If we had a monkey we could get...
    Jemma Simmons: (exasperated) Oh Fitz!
    Leo Fitz: (undaunted) If we had a small monkey, he could slip through the sensors and disable the fence's power source with his adorable little hands.
  • Grant Ward: [But] you don't have the background or clearance or experience with any of this!
    Skye: I know... but I've got an invitation.
  • Grant Ward: I had to learn to protect us, the way I'm trying to protect you.
  • Phil Coulson: You forgot, I've seen plenty of action with the Avengers.
    Melinda May: (to herself) And you died.
  • Jemma Simmons: I thought she was done for, but she just sweet-talked her way into Quinn's office.
    Melinda May: How'd she manage that?
    Leo Fitz: Pfft, she probably used her... (realises Simmons and May are glaring at him) her... uh... boobs.
  • Phil Coulson: Something tells me that wasn't the OFF button!
  • Franklin Hall: I know that history never celebrates things that didn't happen. They'll call this a tragedy. They won't understand the good I did here.
  • Franklin Hall: We have to live with the choices we make. But sometimes we have to die with them too.
  • Skye: Hoping for something and losing it hurts more than never hoping for anything.
