Hiro Nakamura: Fine. Stay here. Be just like everyone else. I wanna boldy go where no man has gone before.
Ando Masahashi: That's right. You're special. You're 'Super Hiro'!

Angela Petrelli: You, in the meantime, with all your selflessness. Sitting with dying people... what, are you going to retire on what you make?
Peter Petrelli: Maybe I'll just shoplift my socks.

[to Peter Petrelli] Do not pull a Roger Clinton on me, man. I'm eight points down in the polls.

Nathan Petrelli

Peter Petrelli: You didn't hear anything I said earlier today, did you?
Nathan Petrelli: About that bit how you can fly. Yeah I did. I'm going to pretend for both our sakes you didn't say anything like that.

[after teleporting to NYC] Yatta! Hello New York!

Hiro Nakamura

Peter Petrelli: I keep having these amazing dreams... sometimes I'm falling, sometimes I'm flying! I woke up this morning and when I got out of bed my foot hovered off the ground. Just for a split second, like I was floating. I'm telling you, I think I can fly!
Nathan Petrelli: Tell you what, you think you can fly, why don't you jump off the Brooklyn Bridge? See what happens.
Peter Petrelli: Maybe I ought to start with something a little lower first. It's like learning to walk.

Peter Petrelli: Wow.
Mohinder Suresh: Solar eclipse.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah. Yeah, I wonder if it's gonna be total.
Mohinder Suresh: Not here, no. In some other part of the world, yes. A global event. Makes one appreciate just how small our planet really is. And we're all quite small really, aren't we?
Peter Petrelli: What's your name?
Mohinder Suresh: Mohinder.
Peter Petrelli: I'm Peter. Let me ask you something, Mohinder. Do you ever... get the feeling that you were meant to do something extraordinary?
Mohinder Suresh: I'm driving a cab you may have noticed
Peter Petrelli: No, I'm not talking about what you do. I'm talking about who you are. I'm talking about... being special.
Mohinder Suresh: Yes, we are all special.
Peter Petrelli: That's not what I meant.
Mohinder Suresh: Some individuals, it is true, are more special. This is natural selection. It begins as a single individual born or hatched like every other member of their species. Anonymous. Seemingly ordinary. Except they're not. They carry inside them the genetic code that will take their species to the next evolutionary rung. It's destiny

Micah Sanders: I'm just working on my computer. The logic board was bad. So I had to build a new one.
Niki Sanders: A new one. Did anyone ever tell you you're the smartest little man on the planet?
Micah Sanders: You do. All the time.

Simone Deveraux: You know, I don't know what he'd do without you - you've got a real gift.
Peter Petrelli: I just do my job.
Simone Deveraux: No, you're like a son to him.
Peter Petrelli: Yeah, but that'd make us like brother and sister and that might be a little awkward if I ever wanted to ask you out.

Zach: It's not like you're not gonna be popular anymore
Claire Bennet: Popular? Who said anything about being popular? My life as I know it is over, okay? I've got the Bishop game next week, SAT's in October, homecoming's three weeks from today and I'm a freak show!
Zach: You're being a little dramatic, don't you think?
Claire Bennet: No, I don't think! I have busted, like, every bone in my body, stabbed myself in the chest, I've shoved a two-foot steel rod through my neck and I don't have a scratch on me!

Then what good is it? Can you teleport yourself into the women's bathroom? Now there's something useful. You won't learn your "purpose" in there but you might learn something about life.

Ando Masahashi

Sandra Bennet: You should know who you are, and know that it's enough. Because who you are is special.
Claire Bennet: About that... There's something I need to say. Something I never talked about because I thought it would upset you and Dad.
Sandra Bennet: Sweetheart, you can say anything to us. You know that.
Claire Bennet: I think I'm old enough for you to tell me who my real parents are.

Heroes Season 1 Episode 1 Quotes

We are not the pinnacle of so-called evolution. That honor belongs to the lowly cockroach. Capable of living for months without food. Remaining alive headless for weeks at a time. Resistant to radiation. If God has indeed created Himself in His own image, then I submit to you that God is a cockroach.

Mohinder Suresh

This quest. This need to solve life's mysteries. In the end, what does it matter when the human heart can only find meaning in the smallest of moments? They're here. Among us. In the shadows. In the light. Everywhere. Do they even know yet?
