Stitchers Season 1 Episode 8: "Fire in the Hole" Quotes
Cameron: Here's something you need to get, we might die and that is something you're going to have to face sooner or later. I'm under the impression that dying is kind of a big deal, Kirsten.
Kirsten: Can we just talk about stuff we know about?
Cameron: [getting angry and slamming Kirsten's laptop shut] I know about this. What I was ten years old I have heart surgery. Remember that scar? I needed a valve replaced, the doctor said I had less than a fifty percent change of living. My parents didn't think I'd survive, but when I did they were very grateful, but they were very scared. They didn't want me overexerting myself. The playground? Forget it. Sports? Cameron's too fragile for that, they thought if I overexerted myself that it would kill me. So this scar is a constant reminder of how fragile life is and how fragile my parents thought I was.
Kirsten: Well I think you have proven them wrong, several times over.
Everyone I care about is in here with me.Camille
Kirsten: Am I interrupting?
Maggie: No. Actually I'm glad you're here, I have something for you.
Maggie: [handing Kirsten half of a photograph] Your birthday present.
Kirsten: This is my present?
Maggie: [handing over the other half of the photograph] No, this is your present.
Kirsten: You knew my mother?
Maggie: I worked with her when I was first administrating the stitchers program.
Kirsten: But she never worked at the program.
Maggie: She did. In fact your mother was one of the original designers of our technology along with Ed.
Kirsten: And my father.
Maggie: Kirsten, Ed and your mother were the real visionaries behind stitchers.
Kirsten: [shaking her head] But that's not.
Maggie: [interrupting Kirsten] What you were lead to believe, I know. The reality is that your father couldn't keep up with Ed and your mother and compensated by taking credit for her work after she died.
Kirsten: So your birthday gift to me is to shatter what few beliefs I have about what little I can remember about my past? Oh, you shouldn't have.
Maggie: You've been asking for the truth, now you have it.
Camille: Are you scared?
Camille: Me too.
Camille: There are two things in the world that terrify me: rats and hairy backs.
It's my birthday and I can stitch if I want too.Kirsten
Kirsten: Context, please.
Camille: Liam, what did you tell him when he proposed?
Kirsten: I told him I needed to think about it.
Camille: Smart move. No sense at all in committing to the one guy on the planet who loves impossible you exactly as you are. What do you think you're going to tell him?
Kirsten: I'm not sure, and assuming you haven't blabbed to everyone here, don't say anything. I haven't told anyone else that Liam proposed.
So we're bringing someone who worked with deadly viruses and died under mysterious circumstances into the lab? What could possibly go wrong?Camille
