AWAY Season 1 Episode 7: "Goodnight Mars" Quotes
Lu: How can this be?
Kwesi: Have you ever seen a dandelion grow through a crack in the cement? There's a Swedish study about children who thrive against all odds. They call them dandelion kids. Uh... My mother was a child psychologist.
Lu: So you're saying there's no explanation?
Kwesi: Maybe it's a miracle.
I told myself I'd miss things, but it's much harder than I ever imagined. Earth is so far away now, Lex. Just a dot, a tiny dot of light in the sky, which means you're farther away. I just wanna stay close to you.Emma
Emma: My head's not clear. I'm off my game, and there's no room for that, not if I wanna go to Mars, not if I wanna be the best.
Matt: Whoa, Em, hey, hey. Em, whoa. You are the best, okay? Hey, what's going on?
Emma: Well, you... you don't get it. You know, you're a man. You get to do it all.
Matt: Uh... Well, since when has being a woman ever slowed you down? Look, I... I don't... You're pregnant.
Emma: I don't know. I'm late. I'm vo... vomiting. So, yeah. Yeah, I'm a little concerned.
Matt: I see. All right. Look, I'm... I'm in this with you, okay?
Emma: It's easy for you to be in this with me. You have a kid; you're a better astronaut; they move you up the list. Women move down the list. Look at Melissa. She was kicking ass, and now they won't even let her fly.
Matt: Melissa... that was her choice.
Emma: Exactly. There's no decision. I'm not giving up flying.
Lex: Okay, so you asked me about Isaac. Well... When I was little, you'd tell me about how you'd have to get up at 4:00 a.m. to spray the crops. But as soon as you got in that cockpit, the old crop duster, and it lifted up into the air, you got this rush of adrenaline. And it made you feel like anything is possible. And that was amazing because you grew up poor, and sometimes it felt like nothing was possible. But flying changed that. Well, that's kinda how I feel with Isaac. I was feeling sort of stuck and closed off, obsessing over you being away, or if I have Dad's CCM. But it's like... I can move now. Maybe I don't have told hold my breath for the next three years.
You have a problem with my crying? My daughter is alive, my crew is on its last legs, and every decision I make, I pray I haven't killed us. The least destructive thing I can do is cry.Emma
Emma: It was the smallest amount.
Ram: Well, a ration of a ration is still enough to cause a problem.
Emma: I just felt so out of control when I couldn't fix the water system. And one of our main mission objectives is to prove that life can grow on Mars. I couldn't let us fail. That plant is our future.
Ram: But it's also our past. It's Earth, and you couldn't let it go, or accept the fact that for the next three years of this mission, Matt is there for Alexis, and you can't be. Right.
Emma: I used to be like you when I was Lex's age. Single-focused. No one could get too close 'cause if they did...
Ram: It might hold you back, right?
Emma: What made you choose this one?
Ram: I liked the name. "Rêverie."
Emma: This piece always makes me think of someplace I've never been.
Flight, possibility, hope. These are things I never want you to live without. What I wanted to say, but I did so very badly, is that there was a time when I thought flying was everything. When I thought Mars was everything. When I had no idea how much more there was. How much more there could be.Emma
