The Strain Season 2 Episode 10: "The Assassin" Quotes
Nora: Has anyone actually ever seen this book?
Setrakian: Several people have seen it. None of them, however, are available to discuss it. There are strange stories of the book turning up in India. Burma. Always presaging massacres. Upheavals.
Nora: So if we find this, it might hurt us?
Setrakian: You're not wrong Dr. Martinez. In 1856, it was listed as part of an auction in Marseille. The auction was cancelled when a mysterious outbreak gripped the city. Since then the book has disappeared. It is said to be cursed, bringing death and disaster to anyone who reads it. But I'm willing to take that risk.

Eph: With you selling out the human race, so you can live as one of these monsters.
Dutch: You look pretty cool right now, by the way.
Dutch: You've changed a lot since my first impression of you. Seriously though, this is pretty badass of you.
Eph: Yeah well, I won't be that badass if I miss.
Coco: Was that Bolivar? What did he do to me?
Palmer: That was the Master. I am his partner.
Coco: The Master?
Palmer: There's so much to tell you. I hated lying to you. But now, you have experienced his power for yourself.
Coco: What are you talking about?
Palmer: Coco, I helped him because I wanted him to save my life and he did. And now he has saved your life too.
