Jack: So do I have your blessing for the opportunity to throw your hat back in the ring?
Abe: I would very much appreciate that.
[Jennifer comes in]
Jennifer: What's going on here?
Jack: Well, you're looking at the once and future mayor of Salem, and a very dear friend of mine. Or at least, I hope he still is.
Doug: Shouldn't she be awake by now?
Kayla: I know the waiting is nervewracking. But the transplant went so smoothly and all of her vitals are strong.
Doug: So the nurses tell me. But I won't believe it til I hear it straight from the horse's mouth.
Julie: This is the old gray mare speaking.
Ruzek: You and your ex-husband built a panic room. Some of this must make sense.
Seldon's wife: For when an outbreak happened, not for when he caused one. My ex-husband is not crazy, he's not a monster, he dedicated his whole life to infectious disease, and it's not paranoia. It's fear, it's educated and grounded fear. And look, all you have to do is turn on the news to see that there are a thousand ways the world could end. I mean, there's climate change, and there's famine, and there's the war, and then there's lack of water, and there's disease. And the right outbreak at the right time with the right factors, it could end this race within months and that's not paranoia. That is a truth that people can't handle looking at. And he had to look at it every single day.
We are not going to be led on a wild goose chase, we are not going to be led into a panic, look, he's buying time. We gotta get ahead of him now.Voight
Mayor's Assistant: This city is on the verge of a meltdown and if that happens, people are going to be looking to assign blame. I'll make damn sure nobody is pointing a finger at the Mayor.
Goodwin: Well, blame is the least of my concerns, but then again, I'm not a politician. People are dying, sir, and you're wasting my time.
Seldon: I don't need help. I'm not a bad person. I just need to show them. I need for them to see so that the whole world could see.
Halstead: See what?
Seldon: See that this is how the world is going to end. Thousands of strains of bacteria that we don't know how to combat. This bacteria kills people so fast they barely have time to know that they're dying.
Fear is a funny thing. Some of the time, it brings out the worst in people. But fear also brings out our very best. We certainly saw that today. Their love, loyalty, care, and kindness, their support, generosity, and appreciation. And for a certain few among us, fear brings out something different, their choice to be heroic. To stand steady, to hold onto each other, to find a way to hold onto hope, and to lean on each other like family.Goodwin
Artie: I've got this strange sensation, I can't describe it, all over, it's like.
Dex: Like you give a crap.
Artie: So that's what it feels like?
Artie: I never thought I'd say this, but I'm beginning to like the feel of this team.
Dex: So now we're a team?
Artie: The grizzled storied P.I. Regained his humanity and his trusted sidekick.
Dex: How am I the sidekick?
Artie: Riding like cowboy avengers into the night. Of course, you're gonna have to change your name.
Dex: What's wrong with my name?
Artie: It's unletterheadable. Banks and Parios come on no one's gonna hire an outfit like that.
Cosgrove: You thought you were attacking your own vehicle.
Dex: Yeah, I read on line actually that um my mustang is the only model year where they built a pinata inside the car. It turns out that that was a hoax cooked up by one of those weirdo deep web guys. So, that is the last time that I ever believe anything I read on the internet. Lesson learned.
Dex: Suck it, Artie.
Artie: How sweet it is to be loved by you.
Dex: No, I think I get it. It's not enough for you to win. If someone crosses you, you have to destroy them.
Randall: Sounds like you know what you're up against.
Dex: Sure do.
