AWAY Season 1 Episode 3: "Half the Sky" Quotes
You're not used to being bad at something. Now that you have difficulty, you can't accept it.Mei
Mei: To learn a new language, you have to be fearless.
Lu: I am not afraid.
Mei: Vulnerable, then. You have to let go and risk looking a fool.
Melissa: Yeah, what was it they told us in training? Uh... the right stuff isn't about ego or swagger anymore.
Emma: Uh-huh. It's about resilience. It's not about conquering space; it's about enduring it.
Look, I know you wanted to be the one leading this mission. But a commander has one job -- to take care of the crew, and Lu just had a meltdown. And now she's trapped in a tin can with four people that know her deepest secret. Not 'cause she wanted it, not because she asked for it. Because you wanted to feel important and score some points with the boys.Emma
Emma: Lu, there's no excuse for what happened to you out there, and it happened on my watch. But I can promise you this: you will never receive an unwanted look or word from the crew again. Look, I don't know what to say here, except I'm so sorry about Mei. I don't... I don't know the first thing about your relationship, and it's none of my business. But I do know what it feels like to be apart from the people you care about. How you live and die with every phone call. And if... suddenly, those calls were taken away... Lu, I can't even imagine. I didn't know Mei terribly well, but she was the best CAPCOM I ever worked with. And it may sound silly, but I was always so impressed with her English. She speaks it better than most Americans. You speak it well too.
Whatever's gonna happen to me is gonna happen. You being here is not gonna change that, okay? You understand? And when I'm feeling down in here, thinking about how brave you're being gives me strength. And you going back to school, getting back to your life, you have no idea how much that helped me today.Matt
Women hold up half the sky.Lu
Lu: This mission was taken from you, and they reassigned you somewhere else. Something definitely has happened. It's my fault. I'm so sorry.
Mei: It's because I love you that the mission was taken from me, and I will never be sorry for that.
Mei: I'm looking right at you.
Lu: But our... our spacecraft is far too small to be seen by telescope, even if the sky were clear and you had my coordinates.
Mei: Well, that's very literal of you. But that I cannot see you doesn't change the simple fact I'm looking right at you.
