Underground Season 2 Episode 4: "Nok Aaut" Quotes
It ain't about the risk. Reading is a curse. All the words...they give words to all the feelings nobody told me about--not even my dad-- and I'm crushing under the weight of the knowledge. It opens up the world to you, and shows you how small the one they got us chained to is.Daniel
Cato: What do you see when you look at the sculpture?
Noah: What am I doing here?
Cato: You're welcome. For the bed. For the suit. For not turning you over to the Marshals to hang.
Devi: You think your money means you can do whatever you want?
Cato: I can.
Devi: Then why aren't you? Because everywhere you take me, there's no reflection of us. It's just rich and white. It's like you're trying to prove you belong there.
Cato: This is the first time I heard you complain about the life my money affords you.
Devi: I don't want your money or your things.
Cato: Then what do you want?
Devi: I want to know you.
Devi: Then tell me.
Cato: Why? You couldn't understand anyway.
Devi: What exactly couldn't I understand? I'm British-Indian in a time where one occupies the other. I'm looked at as different and dangerous. I've been called every slur in the book, and I've been called every slur without the word ever being said.
Cato: Devi, please--
Devi: Being treated less than is not an American invention. You and you alone, don't own the pain and humiliation of it.
Elizabeth: Look at her. They beat a woman, carrying a child, within an inch of her life.
Georgia: She's a fighter. She'll pull through.
Elizabeth: She shouldn't have to...Sorry. It's just, how do you reason with people capable of this level of violence?
I can't lose you, too.Elizabeth [to Rosalee]
Cato: So you made it all the way to Ohio from Georgia. At least, I assumed you made it across the bridge. I couldn't quite make it out from my vantage point.
Noah: So that's what this is all about? 'Cause I left you behind?
Cato: You left me for dead! And this is about having an honest conversation, like gentlemen. But I get if you don't want to talk because you have a plan.
The men outside, the police, you know, one good thing about America is money can buy a lot of powerful, armed friends.Cato
But then, I think, when was the last time you slept? Does Noah have the strength in him for another failed escape? Can he stare out through them bars again? How long can his beard grown this time? A lot of questions come to mind. I wonder for the life of me, do they ever enter yours? Truth be told, I don't think you ever think about what happens after your brilliant plans. So, I did the thinking this time for you. What happens after this here plan? You die, and you leave that housegirl all alone to mourn you.Cato
Get over here! The violence, stop swallowing it. It's a part of you. It's in there [points to chest]. Put it in here [points to fists]. Let yourself be angry. You deserve to be. Take it out on them and enjoy it. Fight for the loss you suffered. For revenge. For those who scarred you and took your family. For every slight, big or small, you suffered for daring to exist in their world. Let them know you do not forget.Devi
