Catherine "Cat" Chandler Quotes
Vincent: We gotta stop this guy Liam first.
Cat: OK we are not stopping Liam.
Vincent: We got to. We got to at least try, Catherine.
Cat: You don't understand. I am done Vincent. I am not doing this anymore.
Vincent: What do you mean?
Cat: I don't even know what I was thinking. This is never ending and it just keeps getting worse. Liam could have easily killed us today. So why are we going after him when he's not even coming after us? Why should we have to keep risking our lives, our friends lives, Heather's? Who says this has to be our fight? It's not. It's over, I quit.
Cat: Do you realize what you just did?
Vincent: Yeah, I just stopped us from ruining what should have been the best day of our lives.
Cat: No, you maybe have just ruined our best chance to find out who's behind all this and for what, because you don't want to elope.
Vincent: Yes that is exactly why I did it.
Cat: Vincent we were never really going to do that.
Vincent: Yes we were. Maybe not technically, but we were about to recite vows Catherine.
Cat: So what if we did? What difference does it make? It's just a piece of paper.
Vincent: No, no it's not.
Why change to this outbreak approach? What are they trying to accomplish?
JT: What happened to this guy wasn't caused by that serum. [pointing to the side by side blood samples] That's the result of a blood borne parasite.
Cat: A parasite? Like a bug? So he caught this like a cold?
JT: Well, I don't know exactly how it got transmitted, but it did. And this parasite's fast acting too, which means he had to contracted it a day or two ago, at most.
Cat: I cannot justify going for tea with my mom's sisters when somebodies hunting Vincent.
Tess: They're not hunting Vincent, they're hunting beasts. They don't even know that he is one.
Cat: Where's Vincent?
Carol: Somewhere not even your love can save him.
Cat: Seriously, babysitting duty! This is just not about distracting me from Vincent, is it?
Tess: Alright. OK, so we buried the lead. Come on Cat, ever since I took over this precinct, I'm under a ton of pressure to get the numbers up, and that means I need the next generation of detectives up to snuff.
Vincent: Do you know how many blonde women there are in Manhattan?
Cat: OK, but you have to admit that could have been Carol.
Cat: He was shot and killed in a locked hospital room.
Tess. The only think I can think of is. [Cat interrupts]
Cat: Another serum enhanced super-human took him out.
Cat: If we move the couches, then the french doors would be blocked.
Vincent: Yeah, but it's really hard to play video games when the sun's glaring off the screen -- no cast.
Cat: Video games? How loud are these video games because I like to sit out here and do case work. Also, I emptied a drawer for you to put all your bills and your paperwork in, so we can merge all of that stuff too.
Vincent: Look, Catherine, you're right. As much as I want a normal life, I can't have it. I'm not normal and, like it or not, for the record I don't like it, I don't really have a choice.
Cat: We don't have a choice. Vincent, you've been given a gift. It might not have started out that way, but it has become that and, if you think about it, it's really not much different from why you wanted to join the army or why you wanted to become a doctor.
Vincent: Or why you wanted to become a cop.
Cat: I keep saying, I really believe that were in this together for a reason. Not just for love.
Vincent: Except, without that, I'd be lost.
Cat: [Vincent helping her down] What are you doing?
Vincent: [smiling nervously] I'm making sure you don't fall. [getting down on his knee] Will you marry me?
Cat: [smiling] Yes.
It's better not to be outed on your first day at work, Dr. Keller.
