Isaiah Mustafa Quotes
Luke: Nothing, I just...
Luke: I just haven’t seen you let your hair down...literally...since the Accords Ball in Idris.
Maryse: That was 20 years ago.
Luke: Was that 20 years ago?! [Maryse laughs] Well, you look just as lovely now as you did then.
Maia: It’s none of their business if I want to date a vampire. You tell them to leave Simon alone.
Luke: And you’ve got some magic fairy dust that I can sprinkle around and make that happen? We’re talking about vampires and werewolves, thousands of years of hate. It’s not pretty, but that’s just the way it is.
Maia: I can’t believe those words just came out of your mouth. Are you seriously telling me there’s no use in changing bigoted behavior?
Luke: I’m all for change, but the kind of change you’re talking about takes time and open minds. And I’m short of both.
Maia: So, you’re abandoning Simon?
[He stops and turns around]
Luke: I don’t abandon people I care about. You know that better than anyone.
Maia: Not anymore. But, hey, you’re the alpha. Do what you think is best.
Luke: You know, for a while, I felt guilty about my role in the Circle. I thought that joining the NYPD would make up for it.
Isabelle: Did it?
Luke: For the most part, but I stopped spending so much time with Jocelyn. And that’s time I can’t get back.
Isabelle: I get it, but I don’t have a Jocelyn.
Luke: Maybe that’s because you’re not looking? If you don’t make time for yourself, you’re not going to find him.
Luke: You know, I’m proud of you, Kiddo. It’s not every day you get an angelic rune. Pick your weapons yet?
[She shows the first blade]
Clary: What is it?
Luke: That was your father’s dagger.
Luke: You didn’t know?
Clary: I didn’t know. I had no idea.
[She shows the second dagger]
Clary: I choose this one too.
Luke: You don’t choose the blades. The blades choose you. That one was Jocelyn’s.
Luke: They’re both part of you, Kiddo. The light and the dark, whether you like it or not.
Seelie Queen: Simon is quite valiant and chivalrous, unlike any of the other night children I've come to known. You're all free to leave. My servant will escort you out of the court to safety.
[She reveals a glowing orb]
Luke: What's the catch?
Seelie Queen: What makes you think there is one?
Simon: Luke, let's just go.
Luke: Nothing ever comes for free. You never do anything out of the kindness of your heart. Hell, you were gonna sell the entire Downworld...
Maia: Let's just get out of here while we still can.
Seelie Queen: She's a smart one, you should listen to her. Before I change my mind.
Russell: The rule is to the death.
Luke: Time for new rules.
[The wolves bow down to Luke]
Luke: Yea. You gotta be careful, Simon.
Simon: I know.
Luke: That stuff is strong.
Simon: I know, it's just a one time thing. I went out with a couple of friends and got a little carried away.
Luke: It's understandable. Clary told me what happened. Listen, I just want you to know, whatever is going on between you two, I'm always here for you. You're the closest thing to a son I've got. Whether you like it or not.
Simon: So, I'm not grounded?
Luke: Don't push your luck.
[Simon gets a headache]
Simon: It feels like Metallica is rehearsing in my head.
Luke: Nothing a little sleep can't fix.
Simon: Look, all I want to do is go to college and hang out with my girlfriend. Is that too much to ask?
Luke: About that, I hope you and Clary are, you know, being safe.
Simon: Yeah, totally, but I figured because of the vampire thing, I couldn't really get Clary...
Luke: Woah, I wasn't talk about that. I was talking about the bloodlust.
Simon: Well, if things get too heated, I know how to pull back...
Luke: Just don't get overconfident. I've seen it happen before. You know, temptation and emotion.
Simon: Can we talk about any other topic?!
Maia: I know about the soul sword. I was there at the party, I heard everything. If Clary touches it, we're all dead.
Luke: And that gives you the right to kill her?
Maia: You think this is easy?! You know me, you know I don't want to hurt anyone.
Simon: Really? It's not what it looked like.
Maia: One life versus millions. If killing Clary is the price of saving the entire Downworld, then I'm willing to pay it. She has to die.
Luke: That is not your decision to make!
When I heard Jocelyn die, I've never felt pain like that...not since my family disowned me.Luke
Maia: I don't have anyone who cares about me.
Luke: You do now.
Simon: So do you think it's true? What they're saying about Jace?
Luke: That he's working with Valentine? I don't think so.
Simon: I mean, he could come for Clary next. He's totally hung up on her.
Luke: So are you worried about Jace...or maybe telling Clary how you feel? Be bold, Simon.
Simon: I'm bold...adjacent.
