Burnham: I am telling you, stop. Nobody has to get hurt.
Book: You might.
Burnham: I am not fighting you. You're fighting me.

Burnham: Listen.
Book: I listen better without holding that antique to my head. Want to put that down?
Burnham: No.

Book: The nearest natural wormhole is a hundred light-years from here. That means you came out of a wormhole you created with tech from I don't know where. You think ripping holes in space is a good idea? Wasn't bad enough for you the Gorn destroyed two light-years worth of subspace?
Burnham: Wait. The Gorn did what?
Book: How many people do you think are on channels right now saying,'I saw a crazy woman in a funny suit. Anyone want to buy some last known coordinates? Where did you get that weapon? I don't want to know. Your rocket girl outfit scanned for tritanium alloy. Hasn't been anything like that in years.
Burnham: Do NOT call me 'Rocket Girl'

I don't know where I am. I have nowhere to go back to. The only thing I can do right now is trust something. Or someone. And I am sorry you don't want it to be... but it's you. So please, please help me.

Burnham: You have a very large cat.
Book: Yes, she has a thyroid condition.
Burnham: Does she have a name?

Burnham: Because?
Book: She's heavy and all mine.

Burnham: I'm guessing your cargo used to be someone else's cargo.
Book: It was never his.
Burnham: You stole it.
Book: I repatriated it.
Burnham: You're a thief.
Book: Courier. Someone needs something to get somewhere, I'll bring it.

Book: You believe in ghosts.
Burnham: What does that mean?
Book: That badge on your shirt. Every time you see a guy with one of those badges, getting himself all worked up about the Federation, the old days. True believers. Can't handle that it's gone.

The Burn was the day the galaxy took a hard left. Dilithium. One day, most of it just went boom.

Book

The Federation isn't just about ships and warp-drive. It's about a vision and all those that believe in that vision.

Burnham

They don't get a lot of walk-ins here. Follow my lead. Try not to get us shot.

Burnham

I know Andorians don't do fun but there's a real market for this stuff.

Book

Orion: How are you connected to the Federation?
Burnham: I'm dying to talk about it. DYING to talk about it because today does not happen to people. EVER. I might be angry about it. I'm supportive. I mean, I'm SO supportive. I am reflexively supportive and what is that about? I'm overcompensating.
