Magnus: I’ve had many, many happy memories in this apartment. But, at the end of the day, it’s just a thing. But my magic, it makes me feel alive. Yes, I can do fabulous tricks, jet around the world, and help the people I love, but more than that, magic connects me to ... everything around me. Without magic, I feel like a stranger. The world keeps on going, and it’s like I’m not a part of it. It’s like suddenly I don’t matter.
Alec: Magus, of course, you matter!
Magnus: I know. I know, Alexander. Everyone does, but without magic, I can’t feel it. This apartment is not important; I have you and I have my magic. Truly that is enough.

Magnus: [Alec in a headlock] Oh, I forgot to tell you, I trained with a grand master in Supenmiayah
Alec: Is that where you got your black belt in namedropping?
Magnus: Oh, low blow.
[Magnus puts Alec in arm lock]
Alec: You deserved it.
[Alec flips him around]
Alec: I didn’t know this was supposed to be a competition.
Magnus: Oh, am I just supposed to let you win?
[The two break free and stand up]
Alec: We’re supposed to be working.
Magnus: You’re so cute when you’re serious.
Alec: I told you not to flirt with me.
[Alec presses him to a pillar and they make out]
Alec: Hold that thought. Bedroom...
[They leave the training room]

Magnus: [Recoils from touching eye] Ah! I don’t know how people do this every day?! It’s taken me an eternity to make myself half-way presentable.
Alec: I don’t know why you think you need it. You’re beautiful the way you are.
[Magnus kisses him and gets up]
Magnus: Thank you, but it’s not about beauty. A tiger has stripes. I have eyeliner.

Jace: Alec, I need you to kill me.
Alec: What?
Jace: Please. Please, I’ve tried ... I tried so many times. Please, Alec, I’m begging you.
Alec: Jace.
Jace: I need you to do this to me.
Alec: No! Never! You’re coming with us. Okay?
Jace: Izzy, listen, I did all those things. I threw Clary off that rooftop. I possessed all those Mundanes. Imogene.
Isabelle: Whatever it is, it wasn’t you, Jace. It’s Lilith.

Alec: We’re going to save you, Jace.
Jace: Good luck. It’s only a matter of time before Lilith finds me and finds you. You’ll be dead by sunrise.
Isabelle: I don’t think so. We will battle her with everything we’ve got. We won’t let her take you again.
Jace: When your delusional confidence gets you killed, I’ll be sure to tell your Mundane boyfriend that you died in a tragic jewelry-making accident.

Alec: Magnus, Lilith would’ve gotten to him with or without you. You can’t put this all on yourself.
Magnus: I will fix it. I will use the last drop of my power if it’s the death of me.
[They hug]
Magnus: Thank you.
Alec: About our fight.
Magnus: Alexander...
Alec: No, I was wrong. I said things I shouldn’t have.
Magnus: As did I. But that’s not important right now. What’s important is saving your parabathai.

Maryse: Isabelle, where’s your friend?
Jace: What friend?
Alec: Friend? Wait, you have a new boyfriend? Why am I the last one to hear about this?
Jace: Oh no, Alec, I haven’t heard about this one either.
Isabelle: Okay, he’s not my boyfriend. We’ve only been on one date.
Maryse: [Whispers] He’s a doctor.
Alec: Oh, what is he? Is he a Warlock? A werewolf?
Isabelle: He’s a Mundane.
Alec: Seriously?
Jace: Well, that’s new.
Maryse: I’m practically a Mundane at this point.
Isabelle: You all have to promise to behave yourselves.
Jace: Us?
Alec: What?
[Charlie walks in]
Maryse: Oh Isabelle, he is handsome.
Isabelle: Mom!

Alec: What if I moved in?
[Awkward silence]
Alec: Bad idea?
Magnus: No, it’s a wonderful idea...for the future.
Alec: Okay, umm, I just thought.
Magnus: We’ve been seeing each other for less than two months. Alexander, once we move in together, our relationship will change.
Alec: Yeah, we’ll be closer.
Magnus: There’s no such thing.

Alec: It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you with a client.
Magnus: Yes, well, it’s frowned upon when you’re the High Warlock. Potential conflicts of interest and such. But now that I’ve been dismissed, I’m free to see whomever I want.
Alec: Wait, what? What happened?
Magnus: While you were in Idris, fallout from my decision to lend the warlocks’ support to the Seely Queen.
Alec: I’m sorry.
Magnus: Don’t be, I’m not upset. I’m actually...elated. Shilling the burden of all the warlocks in Brooklyn it gets...exhausting.
Alec: Well, I understand. I thought this was important to you.
Magnus: What’s important to me is that I can start seeing clients again. Help them achieve their dream...and make a lot of money doing it.

Alec: Magnus, I...I don't think I can live without you.
Magnus: I thought I had to choose between you and the Downworld, but I don't. A wise man once told me relationships take effort.
Alec: That was an understatement.
Magnus: You know what's not an understatement...
[They kiss]

Seelie Queen: For far too long, the Downworld has depended on the Clave, and your Institute, to protect us from men like Valentine. It's time we learned our lesson and started fighting for ourselves.
Alec: We can't do this alone. Valentine is a threat to all of us.
Seelie Queen: The answer, Shadowhunters, is no.

Alec: Magnus, I love you.
Magnus: I love you too. But as a leader, there are difficult decisions I need to make to ensure the survival of my people. The only thing holding me back from doing you.
Alec: No, no.
Magnus: I can't have both.
Alec: Yes, you can. We can. Magnus...we can figure this out.
Magnus: You once asked me what I'm afraid's this.
[He walks away from Alec]

Matthew Daddario Quotes

Isabelle: Forget it. He's not doing it.
Alec: Don't listen to her.
Isabelle: No, Alec! I've already lost both parents to Idris and a brother to Valentine. I'm not gonna lose you too.
Alec: Izzy, you said it yourself, we have no choice.
Isabelle: That was before I knew you could die. No, get up.
Alec: He needs me, Iz. I can't...I can't live without him.

Magnus: You really don't get it, do you? You didn't risk anything for me, you did it for you.
Alec: What? Are you seriously doing this right now? Right now?!
Magnus: You know damn well I want to find Jace just as much as you do, but that's no excuse to treat me like...
Alec: Then what do you want from me?!
Magnus: At the moment...nothing.
