AWAY Season 1 Episode 6: "A Little Faith" Quotes
Why does this family get to have a god, but my family did not?Kwesi
Misha: When my eyes started going bad, I memorized the chart.
Emma: Why would you do that?
Misha: Because I knew this would happen. I knew... I knew you wouldn't let me do my job. Look, I... I can do it by feel; they trained me to do it by feel. They... I would put together everything with my eyes covered. I know this ship like the back of my hand. I... I have the best hands in space; you know that.
Misha: No, stop it! No "Misha." This is what I do.
Misha: Kwesi, tell them.
Kwesi: Tell them what?
Misha: Tell them. You... you saw what I can do. You said I was like a great surgeon, so just tell them to have your faith.
Kwesi: You don't know the first thing about my faith. And our commander issued you an order.
Kwesi: All right! That's enough! Can't you see what's happening? We're being tested.
Lu: Not everything is an act of your god, Kwesi.
Ram: I'm not sure that's what he meant.
Kwesi: No, that is exactly what I mean. We're all angry and scared. I mean, I spent the day by Misha's side, I have more cause than anyone to feel foolish and betrayed. But I believe that God intends for us to survive, and the reason I believe that is that he has put the five of us together. We have everything we need right here to figure this out. So, no, it's not about faith in God. It's about having faith in each other.
When I came to this country, I was a young man, but my heart was like yours. I was sad, angry, and scared. When I met Miriam, I didn't know we would fall in love. We started as friends, or she tried to be my friend, but I wasn't interested. We worked together at the World Relief Fund. I was so sad that we couldn't help all of the people. Miriam told stories from the Old Testament. About people who had so many troubles, slaves who wanted to leave the desert. They had no food nor water. But in all of this, God came to their rescue and helped them. I used to make fun of God. I was just like you. I didn't believe there was a God who can do wonders. Then, my life started to improve. The pain in my heart also started to fade away. I started to think about the slaves in the desert. I thought it was their will, their faith in each other, that made God possible in the desert. Maybe we make God. God does not make us. Kwesi, me and Miriam are not asking you to believe in what we believe in. Also, we are not asking you to think about us as your mother and father. We are telling you the important things so that you can follow and choose when you want.Kwesi's Father
Not everything damaged is useless, Ram.Misha
Emma: You have quite a gift.
Kwesi: Oh, no. As a boy, gardening... I guess it was a way for my father and I to feel at ease with one another. As you know, my birth parents died in Ghana, but when I was adopted and brought to England, I really struggled to adapt. He just made me feel at home.
Ram: It's so ironic, isn't it? We're literally surrounded by water. There's enough in the walls of this ship to keep us alive for weeks.
Misha: Yeah. Yeah, I wish we could access it.
Lu: Even if we could, we still need that water to shield us from radiation.
Ram: But that's the irony. We're like those sailors who die of thirst in the middle of the ocean.
Kwesi: Except that we are not going to die.
