[edit] Best Quotes

  • Leo Fitz: [Academy of] Science and Technology what you imagined, Agent Ward?
    Grant Ward: Yep. No uniforms, no rope course, no defined muscularity on anyone...
    Leo Fitz: (sarcastic) No marching in place, no IQs in double digits?
  • Skye: [The Wall of Valor] must make you guys proud. All this history? Just wish I was a part of it. (off Ward's look) It's not self-pity, really. I'm just saying everyone here has earned this. They deserve it. I hacked my way in. Feels like I cheated.
    Grant Ward: All you need to join is a dedication to the greater good. Coulson saw that in you the moment he met you.
  • Skye: (to Ward) You're not exactly Old Man River and Fitz looks younger than us.
    Leo Fitz: Time will come when you won't make fun of me for that. You'll be jealous. You'll be jealous wrinkly old hags.
  • Grant Ward: You're a hero here, Fitz. He looks up to you. Go hang out with him. Even if he has no clue who might be after him, he could use a friend.
  • Phil Coulson: All right, what's up?
    Melinda May: You tell me.
    Phil Coulson: You're talking. More than ever.
    Melinda May: Cause you're not.
  • Phil Coulson: They changed my memories. Who's to say they didn't change more.
    Melinda May: I say. I know you, Phil, and I knew you before. You know I'd be the first to go down that road if I thought it led somewhere. Do you believe me at least?
  • Donnie Gill: Nice to have someone to talk shop with all the time... or to just plain talk to.
  • Phil Coulson: Sometimes it's not a bad seed, just a bad influence.
  • Phil Coulson: Her story started here. Her whole life, she thought she wasn't wanted, that she didn't belong, that every family that took her in didn't want her to stay. Didn't care. But all that time, it was S.H.I.E.L.D. protecting her. Looking after her. That's what she took away from the story. Not the family she'll never have, but the one she's always had.
  • Phil Coulson: The world is full of evil and lies and pain and death, and you can't hide from it. You can only face it. The question is: When you do, how do you respond? Who do you become?
