Joey: Okay, so are we rescuing Inhumans or saving Coulson? Or attacking HYDRA? Or is there some kind of combo? Sorry, new guy just trying to understand how this whole S.H.I.E.L.D. thing works.
Hunter: This is how S.H.I.E.L.D. works. Make a plan. Plan turns to rubbish. Make a new plan. Oh just to be crystal clear, this is the part where the plan turns to rubbish.

Fitz: You know, I ran a dozen scenarios in my head. Wondering what it'd be like when we finally met. There was a lot more blood and I never considered this Will.
Will: I can see why Jemma loves you.

Gideon: So how long do we have once the portal reopens?
Mr. Giyera: 73 seconds.
Simmons: He's wrong. Your team's calculations are off at 61. 12 seconds might not seem like much, but on that planet it can be the difference between life and death.
Gideon: Thank you.
Simmons: I'm not doing it for you. Don't want you all mucking up Fitz's return.
Gideon: Did you notice the Hebrew word Maveth carved around the castle?
Simmons: Death.
Gideon: That's right, well death is the only thing returning through that portal. Fitz is just an offering to show it the door.

Bobbi: You were there. Did you see it? What's it like?
Simmons: I did see it, but I can't really describe what it looked like. It's more how it felt. Which is old and pained, as if it once had great power but lost it. And the entire planet is a wasteland. How that came to be I can't really say. Not in any scientific terms, but my sense, and certainly Will's heartfelt belief, was that the creature is the one responsible. That it caused the desolation.

Fitz: Ward works for the same group that sent you here. They've been sending people over for centuries.
Will: Sacrifices.
Fitz: Their real agenda is to find the creature and bring it back.
Will: Ward found a way to bring it back?
Fitz: No, I did. To get Simmons back.

Mack: Coulson put me in charge to make the hard call and that's what I'm doing. We can't afford to lose our best agents in one fell swoop. Not here. Not tonight. Now if I don't get out, May's the new Director. That's what Coulson would want.
Daisy: Okay, but one thing... I'm staying with you. Because A: I can keep the portal open if something goes wrong. And B: I'm your partner.

Ward: You know, everyone had this place wrong. It isn't death. It's a new beginning. Malick was right, this was all meant to be. The fact that you followed me here. That we're in this together. That just confirms the fact that I am part of a grand plan. I see that now.
Coulson: I honestly have no idea what you're talking about.
Ward: You will.

Ward: Don't worry, I'm not going to hurt you. There's a much simpler way to make you talk.
Fitz: Leave Simmons alone.
Ward: See first thought I had when we met was, wow this guy's really carrying a torch. It was sweet, really. Not adult sweet, more like a cartoon puppy dog with his heart beating outside its chest.
Fitz: Don't do this.
Ward: I even told you to make a move before it was too late. Guess what? Too late.
Fitz: Please.
Ward: Just tell me how she came back and this all ends. Simple as that.

Gideon: We're just about to open up the portal. I thought you might want to come and see for yourself.
Simmons: Anyone who goes to that planet will die. That thing on the other side drives people mad.
Gideon: Well that's certainly an interesting theory. Here's another, it wants to come back. And after all these years we've finally found someone to help us do that.
Simmons: I'll never help you bring that thing back, no matter how much you hurt me.
Gideon: Which is why we've agreed to stop hurting you, so that he'd go instead.

Fitz: We're never going to help you open another bloody portal.
Gideon: Nobody's asking you to. See, HYDRA's been opening one portal or another for centuries. All it takes is a few stones and a building with just the right vibrational frequency.
Fitz: What's all this about then?
Gideon: The other thing.
Simmons: They don't know how to get back.

Coulson: Sounds like there's a lot you're willing to forgive.
Daisy: I will never forgive him. He murdered Rosalind just to hurt you. He killed Koenig because of me.
Coulson: He knew once Koenig outed him as HYDRA he'd lose you.
Daisy: And the sad part is, that's when I finally understood him for the first time. The reason Ward kills isn't because he feels nothing. It's because he feels too much.

I always thought Fitz would give up the world for you. Looks like now he finally has his chance.

Ward

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?

Coulson

Ward: What are you feeling?
Garrett: The universe.
