Stargirl Season 1 Episode 12: "Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E Part One" Quotes
Pat: What are you doing up so late, and how’d you get in here? Is, uh, is there something I can help you with?
Sportsmaster: You know, I got to hand it to you, bud. You really shocked the hell right out of me. Really, I never thought you’d have it in you.
Pat: So what are we talking about here?
Sportsmaster: C’mon now. No more secrets between friends. It really hurts my feelings. You never telling me about your big robot. Where is it? Where you hiding it. It’s in there, isn’t it?
Pat: Look, Crusher, I think maybe you need to relax a little because, well, I think you got it all wrong.
Sportsmaster: You know, Pat, I got to say, as famous last words go, I’m underwhelmed.
Courtney: Sorry about the door.
Barbara: Court, that was…
Courtney: I know, dangerous.
Ayana: You know, when your father was a child, he was picked on for playing his favorite instrument too, but he never stopped pursuing his passion. He never let anyone else define him, and eventually they stopped bothering him.
Ayana: Because he took the bow of his violin and put it through one of their eardrums. They never bullied him again.
Cindy: Dr. King, is Stargirl dead?
Brainwave: You had a job Cynthia: watching my son for any signs of his latent abilities developing.
Cindy: But I did…
Brainwave: If I had known his telepathic powers were emerging, I may have been able to help him. I would have done anything to help him. Instead I had to end him… because of you.
Cindy: OK, listen, doc. You know what would have really helped Henry: If you weren’t lying in a hospital bed, wearing adult diapers, while the rest of us were picking up your slack.
Brainwave: Do you know what your father truly thinks of you, Cynthia? He sees you as a failed experiment, nothing more.
Cindy: My father loves me, you liar.
Brainwave: Why would I lie?
Cindy: Why are we arguing? Just let me out of here, so I can help you. I can be valuable member of the Injustice Society.
Brainwave: We feel the same way your father does: We don’t want you.
Mike: You know, you’re so lucky the staff picked you. I wonder if I would have found it first, maybe it would have picked me.
Courtney: Um, maybe.
Mike: Tell you one thing, it would have made my paper route so much easier.
Mike: Could I try it?
Courtney: Go for it. Sorry.
Mike: It’s all good. You know, my dad doesn’t have any special powers either, but he still built STRIPE. Maybe one day I could do something like that for the JSA.
Courtney: Yeah, that’d be super cool.
Sportsmaster: Bowin, what are you doing here?
Ayana: Jordan sent me to make sure you don’t fail a second time.
Tigress: We don’t need your help.
Sportsmaster: Yeah, what are you going to do? Smash them over the head with your violin?
Ayana: I’m going to immobilize them. They’ll be standing still, making them impossible to miss, even for you too.
Sportsmaster: Targets that don’t move. Now what fun is that?
Ayana: This isn’t fun, you sadists. You get too much pleasure from this sort of thing; you both relish in violence. I feel sick imagining how your daughter’s going to turn out. She’s a wild animal, just like her mother.
Sportsmaster: You saying we don’t love our child?
Ayana: No, I’m saying you’re unfit to be parents.
[Tigress then shots Ayana with an arrow, killing her]
Sportsmaster: I love you baby.
Barbara: Pat, why didn’t you tell me about any of this before we got married?
Pat: Well, everyone who ever knew, they ended up dead – Sylverster’s parents, our contact in the FBI. I was hoping this life was behind me, and when I met you, our family was all that mattered to me. If I had known the truth about Blue Valley, things would be a whole lot different. Are we going to be OK? I mean, you and me.
Barbara: I want us to be.
Barbara: I’m going to go with Beth.
Pat: Barb, I don’t want you going anywhere near this place.
Barbara: Well, you’ll let a 15-year-old go?
Beth: I’ll be 16 in May.
Mike: So, what’s my job?
Pat: You, Mike Dugan, have the most important job of all: You’re going to look after the dog, OK.
Mike: Is that really all I’m good for? The dog?
Pat: It’s an important job, buddy. Do it with pride.
Barbara: OK, the password is…
Beth: New Kids on the Block? What’s that mean?
Barbara: It’s just random words.
Chuck: New Kids on the Block is an American boy band that enjoy success in the late 1980s and early 1990s and have sold more than 80 million records worldwide.
Beth: OK, let’s stay on mission, Chuck.
Beth: Whatever they’re going to make people believe in, they call it the ‘New Constitution.’ They want to combat… global warming? Oh, wait, they want to force people to…
Courtney: They’re going to force people to what?
Beth: Force them to embrace solar and wind power. They’re going to eliminate discrimination over race, religion, sexual orientation.
Rick: You’re kidding me?
Beth: Oh, and universal healthcare.
Courtney: That sounds good. Is that not good?
Rick: Hey, Pat, are you sure we’re on the right side?
Pat: There’s got to be something else.
Chuck: There is what you would call a catch to reprogramming developed minds like this.
Beth: A catch? Oh no.
Courtney: Beth, what is it?
Beth: There are people who will fight too hard against the reprogramming process.
Courtney: And what happens to them?
Beth: Their brains will shut down. They’ll die.
Yolanda: How many?
Beth: Twenty-five percent of their target audience of 100 million people.
Courtney: They’re going to kill 25 million people?
The Gambler: Give or take a few million, yes.
