Alison: Sabina, I'm gonna tell you something that will probably make me seem unhinged, but I think you deserve to know, so I'm just gonna say it. Sometimes I feel like there is a finite amount of happiness I can have in my life.
Sabina: You don't seem like a pessimist.
Alison: No, I think I'm more of a realist, especially since it took me eight years, and most of my savings, to get pregnant with this baby, which has made me happier than I've ever been. And then that night that we ...
Alison: Yes, that night. It made me even happier. Which made me really scared. Does that sound dumb? That's dumb, right?

Alison: No, we're still in lockdown, but um, after. I made a mistake, I want a do-over.

Jenny: You know what? I'm just gonna have to figure this out myself.
Dr. Peterson: While you're locked in this room.

Dr. Peterson: Then I'd like to help. Let's start over. Hi, I'm Ian, and I stole Glen King's personal effects.
Dr. Peterson: They still don't know how, when or why Glen King got exposed to the radiation.
Jenny: Well, what's taking so long?
Dr. Peterson: The CNSC and CSIS are battling for jurisdiction. Everybody's strangling in red tape. It's like an acronym orgy. You're stuck here until somebody wins.
Jenny: Yeah, well you don't exactly win an orgy now, do you?
Sabina: I was coming up to meet Jenny for lunch, um, then the whole place was put on lockdown so, I'm kinda stuck here,
Alison: Well, uh, seeing you here it's making me feel a lot better.
Sabina: Okay. Great. 'Cause I didn't know how this would go, considering -
Alison: The body downstairs? The radioactive one? I passed by it like ten times this morning. So, to be honest, I'm completely freaking out right now. I just keep thinking of that part in Terminator 2 where all the kids in the playground get vaporized. And I'm worried that that's what's happening to my baby right now.
Sabina: Alison, listen, you're obviously fine, which means your baby is fine. And if you weren't would all these suits just leave you standing here?
Jenny: Hey, Alison, it's me. Is your, uh, os your cell working?
Alison: No one's phone's working. The signals are scrambled.
Jenny: What do you mean, scrambled?
Alison: Like eggs. Terrifying eggs! CSIS showed up.
Jenny: The feds are here?
Alison: And they don't want any information leaving this building. Jenny, they're saying the decedent could be a terorist or a spy of some ther risk to national security.
Dr. Baitz: Wonder why he ran outside instead of calling 9-1-1?
Dr. Allen: Maybe his cell was dead.
Dr. Bairz: This is why you shouldn't live alone.
Dr. Allen: I am not getting back with my ex just so I have someone around in case I have a heart attack. I'd rather get a landline.
Dr. Baitz: Your funeral.
My name is Glen King, and if you're seeing this, it's already too late. It's too ... too late.Glen
