Daisy: We try to protect people like you from the world, or from yourself. Unless we have to defend the world against you.
Joey: People like me? What is happening to me?
Daisy: You've experienced what's called a biomorphic event. Short version, your DNA changed.

Coulson: Are you ready to refocus your energies?
Skye: Team centered around people with powers? How many on the list?
Coulson: Right now, just you. Take it slow.

Skye: She knew I would see this. She said as much. She saw who you really are so you killed her.
Jiaying: Everything I've done, everything I will do is for the protection of our people.
Skye: You killed Gonzales. You want a war.
Jiaying: War was inevitable. I struck first so we would have the advantage.
Skye: He came to make peace.

Skye: You knew, didn't you? Your visions, you saw fire, destruction. You knew it would all fall apart.
Raina: I'm afraid so. Everyone thinks flowers are so delicate, but they really are quite resilient.
Skye: I'm not here to talk botany.
Raina: No, you're here to ask questions about what's going to happen next.
Skye: Yes.
Raina: Well that's the tragedy, because even if I were inclined to tell you... you wouldn't believe me.

Please just sit down with him. Coulson, he's a good man. He's the only person who's ever tried to take care of me. And until now he's the closest I've had to family.

Skye: How'd it go?
Lincoln: The indexing? They just asked a lot of questions. I'm sure you guys already have my blood from when I was out, right?
Coulson: It's protocol.
Lincoln: Hydra said the same thing.
Coulson: I know you've been through a lot, but you can trust us. You'll see.

Our ancient ancestors called themselves Inhumans and we just want to be left alone.

Lincoln: Skye where are we? No.
Skye: It's okay, you can trust them. They're my friends, they helped save you.
Lincoln: You never should have come for me.
Skye: I had to, Jiaying wouldn't allow it if I...
Lincoln: There's a reason for that. The only thing that's kept us safe all these years is that we were a secret. Now S.H.I.E.L.D. knows we exist, and they won't stop until they find Afterlife.

Skye: You can't just leave him on the side of the road like an unwanted puppy. It's irresponsible and cruel for both a puppy or Cal. Cal's not a puppy, he's a pit bull. A raging pit bull who will attack...
Jiaying: I don't want to hear about the people you think you're responsible for.
Skye: This isn't about them. This is about me. You asked me to be decent, give Cal one dinner. I did that and I empathize.
Jiaying: After one night you understand him?
Skye: Yes, because I spent my entire life searching for you.

Skye: Something bad happens every time I feel settled somewhere. I'm twenty five and I have never spent more than two years anywhere. The second I made friends at the orphanage; gone. And God forbid I called a foster family home; pack your bags. I got the news on my birthday once, which is a complete farce because I don't even know when I was born.
Jiaying: I'm so sorry.
Skye: S.H.I.E.L.D. was the closest I ever came to having a family. I belonged there, saw what I could be. Even that ended with agents hunting me through the woods.
Jiaying: We're not going to turn on you, or abandon you. This is a safe place.
Skye: See, you say that but I know you're not being straight with me? Why do you care if I stay or go and why are you...
Jiaying: July second. You were born on July second.

Lincoln: You know it's really impressive for Jiaying to take anyone under her wing.
Skye: Yeah?
Lincoln: Yeah.
Skye: I like her. I just... I can't... What's her role here?
Lincoln: Her role is, in charge. So really she must like you.
Skye: If she's in charge, how often does she train people?
Lincoln: Since I've been here... let me see... never.

Coulson: I'm sorry about everything that's happening Skye.
Skye: Not your fault. The blame begins and ends with my dad.
Coulson: Well, you wouldn't be the first person to have parents with misguided intentions.
Skye: Nope, just the first whose crazy dad lured her to an alien city to get earthquake powers.
Coulson: Yeah.

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?


Hill: What does S.H.I.E.L.D. stand for Agent Ward?
