Supergirl Season 5 Episode 5 Quotes

Leviathan Lady: You've really outdone yourself with those contact lenses. I hear they are as omnipresent as one of our plagues or floods.
Andrea: That was you yesterday?
Leviathan Lady: Leviathan is everywhere. And now a problem has come up. We need you to fix it. It's Rip Roar.

Kara: I never would have thought Andrea was a criminal and I was convinced William was evil. How could I have been so wrong about both of them? And now with Obsidian tech everywhere, I mean, everyone's just in these make believe worlds and it's hard to know what's real anymore. I just want some certainty.
J'onn: You know, my biggest takeaway from what happened with Malefic is when the world is uncertain, there's one thing that's rock solid. It's the people who love you.
