AWAY Season 1 Episode 8: "Vital Signs" Quotes
We don't know anything! We don't know if Pegasus is sitting on the ground, or exploded into pieces, or if the backup system is even going to last, or if Mom's gonna survive!Lex
Emma, I, I appreciate what you're trying to do here, but let's be honest, you know as well as I do when a plane goes off radar, that pilot isn't coming home.Ram
George: You really want the first humans on Mars digging their own graves there?
Li Jun: I would rather she die a hero on Mars than return home a coward.
I said one time, "I wish I was home," and I was dehydrated out of my mind when I said it. And I'll be goddamned if I let my crew die of thirst when there are other options on the table.Emma
Hi. I can only imagine what you're going through up there. Knowing you as well as I do, I bet it's pretty damn complicated. On one hand, I'm sure you're scared out of your mind. And on the other, you can see Mars right out the window, closer than it's ever been.Matt
I believe Mars was a garden once. Those canyons didn't just make themselves; there had to have been great rivers there. Mars was as rich and full of life as Earth is now. And if we're not careful, our planet will look like that someday soon.Kwesi
Kwesi: Forgive me. This might sound a little foolish, but I thought that if I could bring life back to Mars, then I could show people that it is not too late to save Earth. I thought this was God's plan for me.
Emma: Surely, God's plan wasn't for you to die.
Kwesi: Well, traditionally speaking, God's a bit unforgiving when it comes to his disciples sacrificing their lives.
Ram: I would have wanted to land on Mars eight months ago, even if it meant certain death. It's what I promised my brother.
Lu: You think I'm wrong that this was his idea?
Misha: I don't know, and frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
Lu: How can you say that?
Misha: Because I wanna live.
Misha: You don't wanna see your kid again?
Lu: Of course, yes.
Misha: And the woman you love?
Misha: Then, on some level, you're not relieved we're going home?
Lu: Because I didn't come here to fail.
Eyes are not the only way to see.Lu
What do you think would happen if the five of you went to Mars and, within weeks, died terrible deaths? You think anyone else ever goes again? That's it; it's over. You've shown the world this is possible; you've gone farther than anyone else has ever gone.Matt
Emma: I am leading, and if Ground tells us that a sonic boom means that there's even a decent chance that Pegasus is down there intact, then hell, yes! Full speed ahead. But we all know they're not gonna say that. They're gonna say exactly what you said, Ram, that if a plane disappears from radar, its pilot isn't coming home. And the only thing a sonic boom gives us is a very faint and dangerous hope.
Lu: And that's all this mission is.
Lu: And when did you forget that? Where is the woman who stood on the Moon and asked the whole world to believe in impossible things? Who leapt off the side of a spaceship with nothing to cling to but hope? Who went into her crewmate's room when he was sick, and stood outside of my door and told me it was okay to love? Hope has never been my North Star. Honor, discipline, duty. Never hope, until I met you. You... Emma, I don't wanna die, I really don't. But I'm willing to die for hope.
