I don't give a damn about your powers. They're not what made you an agent. I did.

Every time I see his face I want to punch something.

May: We all care about Daisy.
Lincoln: It's not the same!
May: No, the rest of us have known her a lot longer.

Mack: Daisy's my partner, this is on me.
May: Why is everyone making this about themselves?

May: Coulson has another way. But it's risky and irresponsible.
Mack: Then why are you smiling?

Mack: How's he holding up?
May: No one comes to me with their feelings.
Mack: Makes sense.

Daisy: Had to get the band back together. Anyone that can fly this thing?
Jemma: May, you can't even walk.
May: But I can still fly.

You're hurting my brain.

Jemma: I just feel guilty. All the time. How do you make it stop?
May: You don't. You use it, channel it.
Jemma: Is that what you're doing?

Lincoln, forget what I said! Rush in and use your powers!

May: We find the Strucker kid, he'll lead us back to Ward.
Bobbi: You got a how?
May: S.H.I.E.L.D's been monitoring several Hydra bank accounts for a while now, one just woke up. Cayman Islands.
Bobbi: Strucker needed funds, makes sense. So what's the op?
May: How's your Mandarin?
Bobbi: [In Mandarin] You tell me.
May: If we head down there, maybe we'll pick up his trail. He's on the run from Ward. From us. Almost makes me feel sorry for the kid.

Coulson: Since when did you become a high ranking member of team Gonzales?
May: Someone had to run the base while you were gone. Having a seat allowed me to keep you safe.
Coulson: I was fine on my own.
May: Seems that's how you operate best.
Coulson: What the hell is that supposed to mean.
May: That you've been lying to me. Every since S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, all those overseas trips you were taking. They were never about recruiting new agents were they? You want to tell me what Theta Protocol is?
Coulson: No.
May: Because you don't trust me.
Coulson: Because you're not the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
May: Neither are you.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Quotes

The world is full of evil, lies, 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?
