Magnus: I’ve had many, many happy memories in this apartment. But, at the end of the day, it’s just a thing. But my magic, it makes me feel alive. Yes, I can do fabulous tricks, jet around the world, and help the people I love, but more than that, magic connects me to ... everything around me. Without magic, I feel like a stranger. The world keeps on going, and it’s like I’m not a part of it. It’s like suddenly I don’t matter. Alec: Magus, of course, you matter! Magnus: I know. I know, Alexander. Everyone does, but without magic, I can’t feel it. This apartment is not important; I have you and I have my magic. Truly that is enough.
Valentine: You're my daughter. Clary: Why would that stop you? Jace is your son. You've hurt him plenty. [Valentine evil smiles] Valentine: You didn't tell her. Clary: Tell me what? Valentine: You must still have feelings for her, huh? Now isn't that a pickle. Jace: Not another word. Clary: What is he talking about? Valentine: You want to do the honors or shall I? Jace: Shut up! [Jace punches Valentine] Valentine: It's rude to keep a girl waiting, Jace. Clary: Jace, what is going on?! Jace: Valentine is not my father...I'm not your brother, Clary.
