Outlander Season 5 Episode 10: "Mercy Shall Follow Me" Quotes
I want to do right by you and him -- to be a real father.Bonnet
Bonnet: When we're at River Run, we'll have better servants to do this for us.
Bree: You mean slaves.
Bonnet: Is it the master of the house that's supposed to do it?
Bonnet: What I need is something I can't buy.
Bree: A moral compass?
Bonnet: To make sure our son knows what to do, to know how to get on in the world. You can show me how to be in your world and in his. Hm? Show me what to do. Hm? How to be a worthy gentleman. And no harm will come to ya.
Bree: Why do you want to be a gentleman?
Bonnet: You saw something in me. You were drawn to me. We were drawn to each other. That's why fate has brought us together again and again. To be parents to Jeremiah.
Bree: You know his name?
Bree: You can't make someone love you.
Bonnet: I've heard the expression 'learn to love.' Perhaps you could learn to love me for the sake of our son. I think I could learn to love you.
Bonnet: So the monster prevails.
Bree: Well, it depends on who you think is the monster -- the man hellbound on revenge of the whale, who is hunted.
Bonnet: The sea is a treacherous place where creatures prey upon one another. And the sea, herself is hungry for souls.
Bree: What does that mean?
Bonnet: A nightmare. The sea, it calls for me. Darkness closes in. I cannot move. No one comes. No one ever comes.
Bree: It's only a dream.
Bonnet: So you don't think any less of me for tellin' ya?
Bree: No. I could never think any less of you.
Brianna? Was that mercy, or was it to make sure he's dead?Roger
