Ando Masahashi (安藤 マサハシ?) is a fictional character on the NBC science fiction television drama series Heroes, portrayed by James Kyson Lee.[1] The character was billed in a recurring role during the first season, and was promoted to series regular in the second.[2] Introduced to television audiences in the pilot episodeGenesis[3] as an employee at Yamagato Industries, Ando is a partner to his co-worker and friend Hiro Nakamura on various quests to save the world. He often has to overcome insecurities about being undervalued and being seen as a sidekick or liability due to his lack of special abilities in contrast to Hiro and other characters. At the end of the third volume, "Villains", he acquires the ability to massively amplify the power of any posthuman he touches. Later in the fourth volume, "Fugitives", Ando has learned to channel this energy into concussive blasts, projecting the energy outward to knock back any targets.

Production

Casting

James Kyson Lee, who portrays Ando, had to audition several times for the role, and recounted the entire process of his being selected in an interview with BuddyTV:

The whole audition process was a little over a year ago, February last year, and it was a long process and I had to audition five times. You know, the first audition and the initial callback with the producers and then they do what’s called a work session in which they basically prepare you for going before the executives. Mine felt just like another audition. And then we had to go before Universal Studios to do a screen test, and finally it was at the network, at NBC.

Kyson Lee explained how he, as a Korean American, had to learn the Japanese language from scratch under "a coach that I work with exclusively."[4] because the role was written as Japanese.

Kyson Lee was unable to play Sulu in the 2009 Star Trek film because his co-star on Heroes, Zachary Quinto, was already playing Spock in the movie and the show could not have him and Quinto away from the show for three months.[5]

Character

In a discussion about his characters presence in Season 1, Kyson Lee commented on how he felt the relationship between Hiro and Ando had become that of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo respectively, and talked about Ando’s progression as a character:

Maybe the writers did, but Ando is one of the characters that’s really gone through some of the biggest character growths during this season and he started out as sort of a realist, and sort of a reluctant participant in this journey, and he’s grown to a point where he’s really accepted his role in this quest and sort of become a hero.

He also mentioned his belief that Ando embodied the “everyman”, and that Hiro’s assertion that “You don’t have to have superpowers to be a hero” was true of the character.[4]

In an interview with TV Guide, Kyson Lee spoke about the character in Season 2, and his promotion from a recurring character to series regular. He also spoke about the possibility of Ando obtaining a power, saying that “I fully embrace him as an ordinary mortal” but mentioned that “I do want to get in the mix a little bit. To get in there and do some action”.[5]

Regarding Season 3, Kyson Lee expressed the belief that Ando’s role would be important, and that his background story would be explored:

I think you’re going to see a side of him that you’ve never seen before […] I think he’s a big part of the season just like everybody else […] they spent a lot of time in the first two seasons sort of exploring Hiro’s background and whatnot, but there’s still a lot about Ando that we don’t know about, so I think this season is going to be a big part of it.[6]

Character history

Genesis

Ando first appeared to the audience as a friend of Heroes protagonist Hiro Nakamura, watching an internet video of online stripper Niki Sanders. Ando didn't believe that Hiro could manipulate space and time, even after Hiro teleported into the women's bathroom of a bar. After the incident, he told Hiro to stop trying to be different and accept his lot in life. When Hiro returned from the future in "One Giant Leap", he convinced Ando of his powers and Ando then travelled with Hiro to America to prevent the explosion from occurring. Following an issue of a “9th Wonders!comic book they went to Las Vegas and visited a casino, where Hiro used his powers to cheat at gambling. After being thrown out, they were attacked by some men that lost money to them. They argued in the next episode and Ando left Hiro to find Niki Sanders at her home, where he was apprehended by a group of police. He then reunited with Hiro in their journey to find Isaac Mendez.

Every hero is on a journey to find his place in the world. But it's a journey. You don't start at the end, otherwise they can't make a movie about it later.

— Ando to Hiro in "Better Halves"

After contacting Peter Petrelli, Ando and Hiro learnt about the latters future self. They were again confronted by the men they defeated in the poker game, and forced to play another round. Ando panicked during the game and rushed with Hiro to the bathroom. While in there, their opponents were killed and they fled. Ando later consoled Hiro, telling him he could perhaps change their deaths by time travel after their mission. While on the road, they happened upon a burning car, and helped D.L. Hawkins save the life of the passengers. Ando called the police, which forced D.L. to flee with his son Micah. Further along in their journey they stopped at a Diner in Odessa, Texas, where they met a waitress named Charlie Andrews, who had the ability to instantly memorise things. When Charlie was killed in the storage room of the diner by an unknown man Hiro, despite Ando’s pleading, travelled back in time to prevent her death. He failed to return within five seconds as he promised, leaving Ando alone. Later in the diner, Ando noticed a picture of Charlie and Hiro together, taken six months ago, and realised Hiro had travelled back there. Peter Petrelli called, and later met Ando at the diner. Ando protested against Peter going to find “the cheerleader” without the presence of someone with abilities, but Peter left.

Eventually, Hiro returned, having failed to save Charlie, and they continued onwards to Union Wells High School . When it became clear they had arrived too late, Hiro felt the world was doomed. As they left, they received a phone call from Isaac Mendez, whom they met back at the diner, with Isaac telling them of his prophetic paintings. Later, he painter another of Hiro. In “Godsend”, Ando and Hiro finally arrived at New York, and visited the Museum of Natuaral History looking for a sword like the one in Isaac’s painting, and they find the Blade of Takezo Kensei, a legendary samurai. They stole it, but it transpired that the sword was a replica, with the original belonging to a Mr. Linderman. They went to Isaac’s loft seeking his help, and met Simone Deveaux, who told them that Linderman resided in Las Vegas. When Ando and Hiro were kidnapped and brought to Hiro’s father in “The Fix”, Ando became attracted to Hiro’s sister, Kimiko in the next episode. In “Run!”, Ando became infatuated with a woman named Hope, who convinced Ando to obtain a bag of hers from her ‘ex-boyfriend’. When he returned with it, Hope convinces Ando to give her a ride. Hiro, who had been locked up by Hope, pursued them with her ‘ex-boyfriend’, a gaming commission officer. This led to a shoot-out between Hope and the officer, and afterwards, Hiro told Ando to go home. Ando nonetheless followed Hiro, and saved him from arrest when Hiro was discovered stealing Takezo Kensei’s sword from Linderman’s casino. Hiro teleported them away. In “.07%”, it is revealed to the audience that Hiro has teleported them both five years into the future, were they encounter Hiro’s future self. With “Five Years Gone”, New York has been devastated by the atomic explosion predicted by Isaac. When Hiro is captured by Homeland Security, Ando and Future Hiro escaped, and plotted to free him so he and Ando could return to their time and stop the bomb. Ando learned from Future Peter that he was killed in the explosion. They eventually manage to free Hiro, but Future Hiro was killed by Matt Parkman. As he died, he handed to Ando a page of a “9th Wonders!” comic book.

Ando and Hiro returned to the present, and travelled to Isaac’s loft to consult him. They found him dead, killed by Sylar, and hid as the killer detected them. They escaped him and then followed him to his mother’s. Hiro didn’t want to kill Sylar, but Ando showed Hiro the “9th Wonders!” comic page which shows him dead. Hiro unsuccessfully attempts to kill Sylar. He and Ando teleport to safety, where they discovered that the sword has been broken. They try to have the sword repaired, and Ando and Hiro encountered Hiro's father once more. Kaito and Hiro spoke alone, and Ando, impatient, decided to seek out and kill Sylar himself. In the season finale, Ando went to Isaac's loft and found Sylar. The superhuman villain overpowered him and prepared to kill him. Ando dropped the “9th Wonders!” comic book in the process, revealing to Sylar that Hiro would kill him. When he started to kill Ando, Hiro arrived and teleported himself and Ando to the offices of Yamagato industries back in Tokyo, where their journey started. Hiro gives Ando Kensei's sword, promised to return, before he finally teleported to Kirby Plaza to kill Sylar with Ando's sword.

In the graphic novel "Heroism is Found in the Heart", after Hiro was teleported back to Japan, Ando was reassigned by Kaito Nakamura to Hiro's former position. Ando became infatuated with Kimiko Nakamura and sought her affections. One night, he walked her home and they were confronted by a group of bikers. Ando learned that the leader, Fukazawa, was also pursuing Kimiko. Ando and Kimiko ran, but were eventually cornered. Ando promised to protect Kimiko and confronted the gang. When they ran away, Ando kissed Kimiko. Neither were aware that Kaito had scared the pursuers away.

Generations

In "Four Months Later...", Ando has returned to New York City following Hiro's disappearance, waiting for his friend's return with Kaito Nakamura. Kaito receives a death threat and Ando leaves to get a sword for protection. He returns to see Kaito killed by Adam Monroe, though Ando doesn't see the killer's face.

Following Kaito's death, Ando is questioned by Matt Parkman about the incident, but, besides telling him the meaning of the helix symbol, Ando is unable to answer his questions. In the episode "Kindred", Ando discovers that Hiro has left messages for him, stored within the hilt of Takezo Kensei's sword. The messages, written while he was in the year 1671, detail Hiro's adventures with Takezo Kensei.

Hiro returns in "Out of Time", to Ando's delight. While both are happy about the reunion, Ando sorrowfully tells Hiro about his father's death. At Kaito's funeral, Ando is dismayed at Hiro's decision to go back and time to save his father, but is unable to dissuade him. However, Hiro realizes that Ando is right and doesn't change history, instead using the opportunity to discover that Adam Monroe, who he knows as Takezo Kensei, was responsible. Hiro makes it his mission to stop Adam and confronts him at the Primatech Paper Facility. He returns to Ando with the assurance that Adam can never hurt anyone again.

Villains

In "The Second Coming", Hiro, resigned to working in his fathers office at Yamagato Industries, told Ando that he was bored without a quest. Suddenly Kaito's lawyer turned up with a recorded message from Kaito to Hiro. It instructed him to guard the contents of a safe, and never open it. Hiro curiously opened the safe and found one half of a molecular formula, which was stolen by an unidentified person with the ability of super speed. When Hiro travelled to the future to learn more about the formula, he saw himself be killed by Ando, who had a power. Ando then took the formula before Tokyo was devastated by an unexplained disaster. After that in "The Butterfly Effect", they travelled to Paris in search of the thief, identified as Daphne Millbrook, and Hiro explained to Ando that in the future he saw Ando kill him. Ando was shocked and told Hiro he could never do that when Daphne arrived. Events led to Hiro freezing time while Daphne held a knife at Ando's throat. Hiro saved Ando by allowing her to leave with the formula. They continued to follow Daphne in the next episode, and she tried to drive Hiro and Ando apart by undermining Ando. Hiro and Ando noticed the Haitian, and discovered he was in possession of the other half of the formula. Ando knocked the Haitian out.

Daphne managed to steal the other half from them, and before they can give chase, the Haitian awoke and apprehended them both, taking them to the Level 2 prisons of the Primatech Facility. The next episode showed Hiro and Ando arguing, with Ando claiming that Hiro didn't value him as a partner. While trying to escape, Hiro realized he did need Ando. They almost escape, but are caught by the Haitian. He takes them to Angela Petrelli, who claims that Hiro has the "key" to solving the whole issue of the formula. Ando then helped Hiro dig up the key: Adam Monroe. In "Angels and Monsters", Adam begrudgingly took Ando and Hiro to a bar that was a gathering place for "specials for hire", and caused a fight. This led to Hiro being knocked out, and Adam escaping. Ando proclaimed them "the worst heroes ever", before Daphne and Knox entered the bar, wanting to recruit Hiro to the Pinehearst Company. Knox said that to prove himself, Hiro had to kill Ando, handing him a sabre sword.

Hiro appeared to do so, but in the next episode it was revealed that Hiro froze time. After that, he acquired a collapsible sword and fake blood, then travelled slightly back in time to tell Ando that, when the time came, he had to pretend to be dead. He returned to the correct moment, and stabbed Ando. When Daphne and Knox left, Ando stood up again. They travelled to Africa on their first assignment in search of Usutu, a man who could paint the future. Ando expressed doubt over their situation, saying they were working for the bad guys. Hiro reassured him it was simply to infiltrate Pinehearst. They were unable to capture Usutu through Hiro's time travelling abilities, so they tried to do it by hiding and waiting for him. He congratulates them for using their heads as opposed to Hiro's power, and in "Eris Quod Sum", offers Hiro and Ando the chance to take a spirit walk for guidance. Ando refused, and watched over Hiro as he slept in "Villains". In "It's Coming", he tried to save Hiro from Arthur Petrelli, but was tossed aside by Arthur's telekinesis. When Arthur became distracted, he and Hiro escaped.

Hiro though, had regressed back into his 10 year old self, and Ando tried to help him reclaim his memories in a bowling alley. Hiro then teleported them to a comic book store, where Ando spotted a new issue of "9th Wonders!" and saw an opportunity to help Hiro become normal again. In the first part of "The Eclipse", Ando was taken by Hiro to Mohinder Suresh's apartment to meet Matt Parkman, and the three followed the speedster after she fled to her childhood home. Hiro and Matt were shocked to discover their powers gone. While Matt attempted to talk to Daphne, Ando and Hiro left, with Hiro claiming to know a way to regain his power. Hiro takes him to a comic book store, and with the help of two comic book geeks Sam and Frack, the four search through copies of 9th Wonders! to learn of Hiro's fate and any possible way to repair his memory. After Frack discovers a scene depicting Hiro and Claire Bennet hiding as Kaito Nakamura gives baby Claire to her father Noah Bennet, Hiro teleports away without Ando.

Parkman and Daphne find Ando in the comic book store, and they try to figure out how to follow Hiro's adventure. Sam tells them that there is only one last copy of 9th Wonders!, given by Isaac Mendez to a bike courier before his death. Daphne takes Ando and Parkman to New York in "Our Father" to track the comic book down. They find the last copy, and discover that Hiro is stuck 16 years in the past as Arthur Petrelli has taken Hiro's powers. The three come to the conclusion that the only way to save Hiro is to find another time-traveler. Ando volunteers himself to take an experimental formula to give him the ability to manipulate space and time so he can save Hiro. In "Dual", Daphne steals a dose of the formula from Mohinder, and gives it to Ando. Ando manifests the ability to "super charge" the abilities of others, which he uses on Daphne to allow her to run faster than the speed of light, enabling time travel per Einstein's Theory of Relativity. They rescue Hiro from the past, saving Hiro from death at the hands of his father but likewise preventing Hiro from destroying the formula. Nevertheless, Hiro is able to steal the formula in the present with Daphne's help and the group celebrates as he destroys it.

Fugitives

In "A Clear and Present Danger" Hiro and Ando are back in Japan. Hiro has bought an abandoned fire station as their headquarters. Ando leaves Hiro frustrated after he's injected with a GPS device and feels that Hiro is trying to live through him since he has lost his powers. Later, Ando hears Hiro being kidnapped by Nathan's agents through the phone.

In "Trust and Blood", using the GPS device Hiro injected himself with, Ando figures out that Hiro is in Arkansas. Daphne arrives in Japan to find Hiro and Ando to talk about Matt's disappearance. Daphne and Ando go to Arkansas and see the plane's crash site. After Daphne appears to have been killed and Claire uses herself as a shield, Ando, Mohinder, Matt, and Hiro escape and meet up with Peter. Then he and Hiro realize that they must travel to India as seen in one of Matt´s paintings.

In "Building 26", once in India, Hiro and Ando realize that they must save a local girl, Annapoora, from being married against her will. At first Ando uses his red glow as the sign she was looking for, but he "steals" Hiro's chance to recover his powers and also he ends up being kidnapped by the groom to force Annapoora into marriage. Finally, Hiro realizes that he does not need powers to be a hero, as he saved the girl without them, getting Ando back too. Later, Annapoora gives them a message "Rebel" sent them: to find Matt Parkman in LA.

As seen in "Shades of Gray" and continued in "Cold Snap", Hiro and Ando arrive Los Angeles where they find that the Matt Parkman "Rebel" was referring to was only a baby, also named Matt Parkman. Later they discover that this is actually the son of the Matt Parkman they know, and also discover the baby possesses the ability to touch things and make them "go". While Hiro and Ando are convincing Janice that Matt Sr. isn't a terrorist and that his baby is in danger, agents take Janice away and break into the house. Ando shows that his acquired ability can also be used as an offensive weapon when he channels the energy outward to hit one of the pursuing agents, before Hiro manages to stop time with his partially restored ability (Matt Jr. used his powers to restore part of Hiro's). Hiro carries baby Matt and a paralyzed Ando to safety as he is unable to teleport, having only regained the ability to stop time.

In "Turn and Face the Strange", Hiro and Ando have the mission to take baby Matt to Matt Sr., but Matt Jr. keeps inactivating any vehicle they are on due to the noise they make, until Ando comes with a funny face to entertain the baby, so Hiro convinces him to keep it so the "cube" can go. They finally manage to track down Matt Sr. who has gone to confront Danko. Hiro ends up saving Matt, and then he meets his son for the first time, giving Matt a reason to live again.

In "I Am Sylar", after failing to convince Matt to join them, Hiro and Ando go to Reed Street Laboratories to set up a trap for HLS agents, using Ando as bait. Although he refuses, as Hiro manages to not freeze him, Hiro still keeps his plan going on, unfreezing the agents so they can take down Ando, and then freezing everybody again so he can take an agent's place as they carry Ando to the "Building 26". Once in motion, Ando is awoken by Hiro so he can be ready for action, but when an agent realizes Hiro is not one of them, Ando shoots a big blast of red lightning, affecting everyone and saving Hiro. As plan B, they use the GPS signal of the agents to track the place, and once they are ready to fight, Hiro tries to freeze time, but instead he receives an strong headache and nosebleed as they realize he can't use his ability anymore. Ando is then seen aidding Hiro.

In "An Invisible Thread", because of Hiro's condition, Ando plans to enter "Building 26" by himself, but Hiro recovers and insists on continuing with the plan despite the danger. Hiro stops time and both break in to free the trapped prisoners, including Mohinder, Noah and Danko, and replace the drugged evolved humans with all of the "Building 26" staff. Once time is going, Hiro and Ando show the freed prisoners the way out. Ando asks Mohinder to check out Hiro, finding out his body is rejecting his powers and he should stop using them. As Hiro faints after saving Noah from Danko, is apparently taken to a hospital by Ando and Mohinder. Later, Ando, along with Hiro, witness the burning of Sylar's (really James Martin) body and then both decide to return home.

Redemption

In "Orientation", Ando and Hiro have opened a hired hero business called Dial-A-Hero setled in a conference room at the Yamagato Building, which enrages Kimiko. On Ando insistence to visit a doctor, Hiro reveals that his headaches are caused by a terminal illness, and he is dying. Attending their first mission, saving a girl's cat, both Ando and Hiro realize their abilities aren´t fitted to the situation, but still Ando is forced by Hiro to help the cat. Once he catches the cat, Ando loses balance and falls. Hiro stops time saving him, but Ando notices Hiro remains frozen while time is resumed. Ando then takes Hiro to Yamagato where he unfreezes. While talking, they remember the carnival they attended 14 years before, where a fortune teller directed Hiro on his path to being a hero. Ando remembers as he accidentally spilled a drink over Kimiko, causing her to hate him despite he was in love with her. While remembering this, Hiro's time travel manifests teleporting him to the carnival 14 years in the past.

In "Jump, Push, Fall", while Hiro is at the carnival in the past, a young Ando is seen together with a young Kimiko in the carnival. The young Hiro rushes into them making Ando spill a Slushy in Kimiko's direction, but Samuel Sullivan pushes adult Hiro in the way to show him past can be changed, so he gets wet instead of Kimiko. This event avoids Ando to be hated by Kimiko, and when adult Hiro teleports back to the present, he finds out the two of them felt in love at the carnival and have dated since.

In "Acceptance", Kimiko reveals to Hiro that she and Ando have gotten engaged. Ando is concerned about Kimiko wanting Hiro to give her away in the wedding a year from now, knowing that he may not be alive by that time, so he talks Hiro into confessing the truth to Kimiko. Hiro's ever-lasting mission to save a man makes him hear this speech from Ando over and over again, and finally understands the picture. Ultimately, Hiro tells Kimiko the truth about his illness, and then suffers a headache; Ando rushes in the office to help him, but Hiro teleports away in front of Ando and Kimiko, leaving her extremely shocked.

In "Once Upon a Time in Texas", as Hiro travels back in time 3 years to Midland, Texas to save Charlie, he meets past-Ando waiting for past-Hiro to teleport back (Seven Minutes to Midnight timeline). Hiro convices past-Ando to stay at the diner to avoid making too many changes and preserve history.

In "Upon This Rock", a brain-addled Hiro is brought to Ando by the police after they find a business card on him. Ando reveals that Hiro has been missing for six weeks and figures that Hiro's referring to himself and everything else as fictional characters (with Ando being Sancho Panza) is a side-effect of his brain tumor. Ando doesn't understand what Hiro means by they have to save "Doctor Watson" at "Arkham" in the land of the "swamp dragons," but decides to check Hiro's comics to try to figure it out. Ando eventually realizes that Hiro is referring to Florida when Hiro mentions Curt Connors and realizes that the "swamp dragons" are alligators and that Arkham refers to an insane asylum though he still doesn't understand the Doctor Watson reference. Ando searches on the web and finds that there's an asylum on Arkham Road in Florida and realizes that Hiro means Ando is his sidekick when he refers to him as Sancho Panza. Ando admits this, but Hiro refers to him as the best sidekick he knows.

In "Close to You", Ando checks Hiro into the asylum Hiro keeps referring to, but is reluctant as Hiro in his addled state can't stop time or use his powers. Hiro points Ando to "Watson's" room as he's led away, and after Ando uses his power to bypass a lock, he finds out "Watson" is Mohinder Suresh and realizes that Hiro wants to save him. Ando, realizing that Mohinder can't use his powers due to the drugs the orderlies are giving him, switches Mohinder's pills with asprin to stop that, but accidentally swallows Mohinder's pills and enters into a drug-induced daze. Hiro hides him in a closet and later that night frees Mohinder, but the two are forced to wheel Ando out in a wheelchair as he's still in a daze. As the three are found by orderlies, Ando snaps out of it and uses his powers to blast open a door leading out, creating enough of a distraction that Mohinder is able to overpower the orderlies and allow the three to escape. Running through a swamp chased by orderlies and dogs, the three are forced to hide behind a tree and Mohinder suggests Ando use his power like electro-shock therapy to restore Hiro's mind so he can teleport them away. Ando is reluctant as his future self killed Hiro using that power, but Mohinder convinces him to try. Ando shocks Hiro and it does work, restoring Hiro's mind back to normal. With Hiro back to normal, he teleports himself, Mohinder and Ando to Noah Bennet's apartment, seconds before orderlies and dogs find their hiding place. When the three teleport in, they interrupt Noah and Lauren Gilmore kissing and Hiro asks the two for their help.

In "Pass/Fail," Ando and Hiro watch as Mohinder creates a compass for Noah to use and suggests Ando or Hiro as the ones that use it as only someone with powers can use it. After Mohinder leaves, Hiro collapses due to his brain tumor and Ando has him rushed to the hospital. There, Ando watches worried as the doctors prepare to perform brain surgery to try to remove the tumor and save Hiro's life. In Hiro's hallucination, Ando acts as his lawyer during his trial and his young self acts as a witness for the prosecution. In the real world, Ando watches the surgery and when Hiro crashes makes a rousing speech that gives Hiro strength in his hallucination. The doctors manage to revive Hiro and remove the tumor. Ando later visits Hiro as he recovers from the surgery.

In "Brave New World," Ando is happy to see Hiro awake and has him test his powers which Hiro now has full control of after his tumor was removed. Ando and Hiro are shocked when Hiro receives a note from Charlie and Ando watches as a now old Charlie and Hiro reunite. When Hiro plans to travel back in time to get Charlie after she arrived in the past, Ando thinks Hiro is being selfish to try to do that as Charlie is clearly happy and leaves the room. He receives a call from Noah Bennet who wants him and Hiro to come to the Carnival in Central Park and Ando goes to get Hiro. Hiro has changed his mind about going back in time after talking to Charlie and now feels he has lost his purpose and has finished all of his missions, but Ando reminds him of Samuel and informs him of Noah's call. Hiro teleports himself and Ando to the Carnival where Claire asks Hiro to teleport all of the carnies away. Hiro tells them all to hold hands, but is unsure if he can teleport them all as there are over a dozen, so Ando offers to use his powers to supercharge Hiro's to teleport everyone. Hiro agrees to try and thanks to Ando supercharging his power, Hiro successfully teleports everyone away which results in Samuel's defeat as the removal of all the special reduces Samuel's power significantly.

Brave New World

Hiro and Ando walk through the Carnival after everything is over and plan to go home. The two witness Claire climbing up the Ferris Wheel and jumping off to reveal her power to the world.

Alternate timelines

  • In "Five Years Gone", Ando discovers from the future Peter Petrelli that he was killed in the explosion. Peter speculates that it was Ando's death that changed Future Hiro from the optimistic person Ando knows, into the dark focused warrior he has become.
  • In "The Second Coming", Hiro travels into the future Tokyo during a horrific cataclysm. There he finds future Ando and Hiro arguing over the formula. Ando demands that Hiro relinquish the formula, but Hiro refuses, claiming Ando betrayed him. Ando denies this, then hits Hiro with a blast of his energy projection when Hiro draws his sword. Hiro is knocked out or killed by the blast and Ando walks off with the formula. Moments later, an unseen force destroys Tokyo.
  • In most of the show, Ando loves Kimiko but she doesn't return it due to an incident with a Slushy at a carnival. After accidentally time traveling, Hiro changes this and in the current timeline Ando and Kimiko are in love and engaged to be married. Besides this, there don't seem to be too many major changes to Ando's history as he still goes on adventures with Hiro and still retains his powers. (Jump, Push, Fall).

Powers and abilities

Ando's red lightning.

During the first two volumes, Ando is a normal human with no abilities. In the opening episode of the third season, "The Second Coming", Hiro Nakamura travels into the future and witnesses Ando using an ability described by the writers simply as "red lightning".[7] In "Dual", Ando injects himself with the formula, revealing that the red lightning amplifies the abilities of others. He demonstrates this unintentionally by boosting the range of Matt Parkman's telepathy to cover all of New York City and increasing Daphne Millbrook's super speed to such an extent that she is able to break the spacetime barrier. In the episode "Cold Snap", Ando learns to use his power offensively, channeling his energy into powerful bolts from his hands after having a lot of practice. The motion he uses for this is to touch wrists, with his palms facing outward, not unlike the classic Hadouken special move popularised by the Street Fighter video game characters Ryu & Ken. As seen later in "I Am Sylar", Ando has managed to produce and control a major amount of energy as he attacks agents inside a van with a heavy blast without damaging Hiro or the van itself.

In "Close To You", Ando displays the ability to use his power to slightly overload a keypad, allowing him to bypass a locked door without frying the system. He later is able to use a concussive energy blast to blast open a locked door to allow himself, Hiro and Mohinder Suresh to escape an insane asylum. He is also able to use his power as a shock similar to electro-shock therapy to restore Hiro's scrambled mind back to normal.

In "Brave New World," when Hiro needs to teleport a lot of people to saftey, Ando offers to supercharge Hiro's powers so he can do it. Thanks to Ando's supercharging, Hiro is able to teleport dozens people an unknown distance with no apparent problems while before he has only been able to teleport two at most.

Ando: Fine. I'll humor you. Let's say you really do have this power. What do you do with it? Join the circus? No one ever got laid by stopping the second hand of a clock.
Hiro: As I develop my powers, I'll learn to bend space, too. Then I can teleport myself anywhere on the planet.
Ando: Like Star Trek.
Hiro: Every hero must learn his purpose. Then he'll be tested and called to greatness.
Ando: I think I need a stiff drink! "Beam us up, Scotty".

[Translated from Japanese.]
Ando: Tell me one useful thing you could do with this power. Can you make money?
Hiro: A super hero doesn't use his power for personal gain.
Ando: Then what good is it? Can you teleport yourself into the women's bathroom? Now, there's something useful. You won't learn your "purpose" in there, but you might learn something about life.

[Translated from Japanese.]
Hiro: (cheerfully) I did it! I teleported in to the women's bathroom!
Ando: Then you're a pervert!

Claire: I walked through fire and I didn't get burned.

Don't Look Back [1.02]

[Opening voiceover.]
Mohinder: We all imagine ourselves the agents of our destiny, capable of determining our own fate. But have we truly any choice in when we rise? Or when we fall? Or does a force larger than ourselves bid us our direction? Is it evolution that takes us by the hand? Does science point our way? Or is it God who intervenes, keeping us safe?

Detective Furukawa: He says he teleported himself here.
Other Detective: Teleported? What the hell is that?
Hiro: Like Star Trek.
Detective Furukawa: He says he can bend the time/space continuum.
Other Detective: Funny, I've seen all the Star Treks. I don't remember you from the show.

One Giant Leap [1.03]

[Opening voiceover.]
Mohinder: When evolution selects its agents, it does so at a cost, makes demands in exchange for singularity and you may be asked to do something against your very nature. Suddenly the change in your life that should have been wonderful comes as a betrayal. It may seem cruel, but the goal is nothing short of self-preservation, survival.

Ando: I'm confused. You said you called me when you went in the future.
Hiro: Yeah. So?
Ando: So, shouldn't I be at home waiting for your call?
Hiro: We're changing the future. By taking action, we've changed something.
Ando: What if we make it worse? And if there's going to be a nuclear explosion, shouldn't we be flying away from the bomb?
Hiro: A hero doesn't run away from his destiny. My only concern is whether I need to hide my true identity. Perhaps a costume?
Ando: You even mention tights and a cape, I'm going home.

Eden: Well, this is macaroni and cheese. It's what Americans eat when they want to commit suicide slowly.

Ando: Who are you calling?
Hiro: The comic book author. To warn him about the future. He keeps hanging up on me.
Ando: That's because you're crazy. I'd hang up on you too, if I could.

Isaac: I don't want to lose you, Simone. But if you don't believe in me, then you shouldn't be here.
Simone: Fine. You can paint the future. Paint one without me in it.

[Closing voiceover.]
Mohinder: This force, evolution, is not sentimental. Like the earth itself, it knows only the hard facts of life's struggle with death. All you can do is hope and trust that when you have served its needs faithfully, there may still remain some glimmer of the life you once knew.

Collision [1.04]

[Opening voiceover.]
Mohinder: Sometimes questions are more powerful than answers. How is this happening? What are they? Why them and not others? Why now? What does it all mean?

Claire: Look, you can't say anything. I'm fine. He was drunk and it was an accident.
Zach: Which part was an accident? The rape or the murder?
Claire: It didn't happen.
Zach: Yeah, because he killed you before he had the chance.
Claire: I'm alive!
Zach: Yeah, now, but you weren't on the autopsy table.
Claire: Shhh!
Zach: Look, you said you had a hole in your head. Okay, maybe when - maybe when they pulled whatever was in there, its when you like, rebooted or whatever.
Claire: I'm not a hard drive.
Zach: No, you're little Miss Miracle Gro.
Claire: Don't ever call me that again.

Nathan: Don't insult me. I have trained professionals to do that.

Nathan: You have any kids?
Nikki: That's another question
Nathan: Right
Nikki: One. Boy Genius.
Nathan: Boy?
Nikki: Boy
Nathan: I've got two boys. Not geniuses, just boys.

Hiros [1.05]

[Opening voiceover.]
Mohinder: When a change comes, some species feel the urge to migrate, they call it zugunruhe. "A pull of the soul to a far off place," following a scent in the wind, a star in the sky. The ancient message comes calling the kindred to take flight and gather together. Only then they can hope to survive the cruel season to come.

Nathan: Two million dollars makes me a candidate in your pocket. Four million makes me a congressman.

Future Hiro: Save the cheerleader, save the world!

Better Halves [1.06]

Mohinder: [voiceover] Evolution is imperfect and often a violent process. A battle between what exists and what is yet to be born. Amidst these birth pains, morality loses its meaning, the question of good and evil reduced to one simple choice: survive or perish.

Ando: You came from the future and told them to save the cheerleader. Oh, and you had a sword.
Hiro: I had a sword?

Ando: Every hero is on a journey to find his place in the world. But it's a journey. You don't start at the end, otherwise they can't make a movie about it later.

Nothing To Hide [1.07]

Peter: [to Nathan] Hey, you know what? I'm just gonna fly off the terrace yeah? No? Hey, I can fly. Nathan so can you. Tell you what. Why don't you just race around the Statue of Liberty real quick. Huh? Give this tweedy cat something to write about.

Ted Sprague: Do you have any idea as to what would happen, Cause I don't. Maybe I'll explode. Maybe I'll take out this hospital. Maybe I'll wipe out the city like an atomic bomb!

Mohinder: [voiceover] You do not choose your destiny, it chooses you. And those that knew you before Fate took you by the hand cannot understand the depth of the changes inside. They cannot fathom how much you stand to lose in failure...that you are the instrument of flawless Design. And all of life may hang in the balance. The hero learns quickly who can comprehend and who merely stands in your way.

Lyle: Are you aliens?!
Zach: Yeah, and we're gonna anal-probe you...

Lyle: I'm gonna put this on YouTube and make like, a million dollars!
Zach: YouTube's free, you idiot!

Seven Minutes To Midnight [1.08]

Mohinder: [voiceover] The Earth is large. Large enough that you think you can hide from anything. From Fate. From God. If only you found a place far enough away. So you run. To the edge of the Earth. Where all is safe again. Quiet, and warm. The solace of salt air. The peace of danger left behind. The luxury of grief. And maybe, for a moment, you believe you have escaped.

Mohinder: [voiceover] You can run far, you can take your small precautions. But have you really gotten away? Can you ever escape? Or is it the truth that you did not have the strength or cunning to hide from destiny? That the world is not small. you are. And, fate can find you anywhere.

Homecoming [1.09]

Mohinder: [voiceover] We are, if anything, creatures of habit. Drawn to the safety and the comfort of the familiar. But what happens when the familiar becomes unsafe? When the fear that we've been desperately trying to avoid, finds us where we live?

Zach: I know who I am. I like who I am. And I like who you are. I just wish you liked who you are.

D.L.: It's going to be you and me from here on out. Partners.
Micah: You mean like Batman and Robin?
D.L.: Yeah, like Batman and Robin. Only, I ain't wearing no tights. You can wear tights, I ain't wearing no tights.

Six Months Ago [1.10]

[Sylar confronts Brian Davis.]
Sylar: You're broken. I can fix you.

Fallout [1.11]

[At the Union Wells High crime scene, Agt. Audrey Hanson is skeptical of Sgt. Matt Parkman's marital fidelity.]
Audrey: Well, statistically speaking, law enforcement attracts a certain kind of male personality.
Matt: Ohhh. What personality would that be?
Audrey: Dogs.
Matt: And the female personality?
Audrey: Bitches. We keep it in the canine family.
Claire: You're totally my hero.

[Hiro gets a well-timed cellphone call from Isaac.]
Ando: Who is it?
Hiro: Destiny!
Ando: I wish Destiny would lose our number.

[Peter and Nathan are walking out of the police station. Peter tries to discuss others' powers with Nathan.]
Peter: ... I-I think he was trying to read my mind. They were all like us!
Nathan: Dysfunctional?

[Alone at home, Claire is suddenly grabbed by the Haitian.]
The Haitian: I work for your father. He sent me here to make you forget; like he sent me to your friend, and your brother, and to your mother, so many times. He'll be here soon, expecting that you won't remember anything. But it is very important that you do. Tell me, Claire, can you keep a secret?

Ando: [to Hiro] Future you doesn't count as you.

Godsend [1.12]

Mohinder: [voiceover] In the beginning there was discovery. A confusion of elements. The first snowfall of impossible change. Old lives undone, left behind. Strange faces, made familiar. New nightmares, to challenge sleep. New friends, to feel safe with. Only then comes control. The need to impose order unto chaos, through determination, through study, through struggle. All in defiance of a thundering truth. They're here, and the earth shudders underfoot.

Policeman: If you didn't have a record showing you were in India when some of these people were killed you and I would be having a very different conversation.
Mohinder: How fortunate for me then.

Matt: We didn't look everywhere. Maybe-maybe there's a secret room somewhere. 'Kay Maybe-
Superior: and maybe I can whistle the Star-Spangled Banner out of my ass.

Niki: Death penalty?
Lawyer: Look I know it's a long shot but it might help if you co-operated a little.
Niki: How am I supposed to do that?

Jessica: He's right Niki we should tell him...
Niki: Stop It!...Don't pay any attention to her.
Lawyer: Pay attention to who?
Jessica: God, who am I gonna have to screw to get out of here-?
Niki: I said stop it!
Lawyer: What is this?
Jessica: What's it look like dipstick?
Lawyer: Wait you're going psych on me?
Jessica: If that's what it takes.

Hiro: [pausing infront of a guard and talking slowly] ...Which way to gift store? [Guard points] Thank you!
...
Hiro: [in Japanese] It's one antique, if I don't get it this whole museum will explode anyway. It's a good deal for them.

Hiro: Mr. Isaac bad news, sword not there. Original owned by a man named Linderman.
Nathan: [coming out from behind a painting] Did he say Linderman?!
Hiro: [after spotting Nathan] Flying Man!

[Nathan and Hiro are at Isaac's apartment's window.]
Hiro: The bomb, it come from the street, destroys everything, everything turn into dust, poof!
Nathan: Your English is a lot better.
Hiro: I met a waitress in Texas.
Nathan: Hmm?
Hiro: She teach me many things.
Nathan: Good for you.

Hiro: [in broken English] You will help too!
Nathan: Me? What makes you so sure?
Hiro: You're flying man! Woooooosh!
Nathan: Shh! Will you keep it down?
Hiro: [quietly] Whoooosh.

Hiro: Dunno probably bad guy.
Nathan: Bad guy?
Hiro: Yes. Like billain.
Nathan: What's that..?
Hiro: ..Billain.
Nathan: Billian?
Hiro: Billain.
Nathan: Villain.
Hiro: Vi-
Nathan: Vi-
Hiro: Viiyun

{The Japanese language has no "V" sound}


Hiro: I'm just like Mr. Issac draw me, except my face not so round.

Niki: Oh God, please help me.
Jessica: Who needs God when you have me.

The Fix [1.13]

[Opening voiceover.]
Mohinder: When we embrace what lies within, our potential knows no limit. The future is filled with promise. The present, rife with expectation. But when we deny our instinct, and struggle against our deepest urges... Uncertainty begins. Where does this path lead? When will the changes end? Is this transformation a gift... or a curse? And for those that fear what lies ahead... The most important question of all... Can we really change what we are?

Hiro: I am very special, I offer myself in trade! Release unspecial Ando!

Hiro: You cannot bribe a hero. My heart is true. My spirit unbreakable.

Hank: I did everything I could. He's dead.
Mr. Bennet: Well, that's less than ideal.

Distractions [1.14]

Mr. Bennet: It means that an old friend isn't quite as dead as we thought he was.

Peter : The people I love are not distractions!

Claude: Nurse who's an empath, very cute.
Peter: What's an empath?
Claude: Means you're a pain in my ass, mate.

Run! [1.15]

Mohinder: [voiceover] To survive in this world, we hold close to us those on whom we depend. We trust in them our hopes, our fears... But what happens when trust is lost? Where do we run, when things we believe in vanish before our eyes? When all seems lost, the future unknowable, our very existence in peril... All we can do is run.

Mohinder: (rings doorbell) Hello? Zane Taylor?
Sylar: Yes. You must be Dr. Suresh. Come on in. Can I get you some tea?
Mohinder: Sorry it took me so long to get here.
Sylar: No, it's no problem. Is Earl Grey okay?
Mohinder: Yes, that'll be fine. (Sylar moves to other room and begins to make tea.) You um, sounded rather alarmed on the phone. You semeed to have calmed down some.
Sylar: I had a kind of epiphany about it this morning. Are you familiar with Abraham Maslow, the peak experience?
Mohinder: No, I'm afraid not.
Sylar: It's, um.. a single moment that takes you out of yourself. Makes you feel very tiny, or very large.To some extent one with life, or nature, or god.
Mohinder: ...I see.
Sylar: Like seeing all the pieces of a puzzle fit together. All this time I was trying to fight it. Deny it. But there is no shame in having this ability, is there?
Mohinder: None whatsoever. It would be like denying you have brown eyes.
Sylar: Right. So um, I guess that you- you want to see my ability.
Mohinder: Yes! I mean, I'm quite anxious to document it.
Sylar: (pulls out toaster.) You might want to step back, that looks like a nice jacket. (He places his hand over the appliance and melts the toaster)
Mohinder: My god.
Sylar: You want to see it again?
Mohinder: (chuckles and smiles nervously)

Mohinder: I'm very interested in how you control this ability.
Sylar: Well it's like... riding a bike for the first time. It's a little wobbly, and then I discovered something. A kind of peace. A sense of purpose that can only be described as destiny.
Mohinder: I'd like to take a DNA sample.
Sylar: From me, okay. Uh, sure.
Mohinder: (takes out a cotton swab and hands it to Sylar) Just swab it on the inside of your mouth. (tea starts whistling.)
Sylar: The tea. If you'll excuse me for a second?
Mohinder: Of course. (Sylar walks to the other room, where Zane Taylor is on the floor.)
Sylar: I just swab it on the inside of my cheek?
Mohinder: Yes, that's right. (Sylar swabs Zane's cheek as Mohinder walks toward the room they're in.)
Sylar: Here you go. The DNA sample. (hands Mohinder the swab.)
Mohinder: Thank you. You know.. you should be careful who you talk to about this ability, Zane. There's some people who might not undestand. Who might want to hurt you.
Sylar: Why would anybody want to hurt me?
Mohinder: I don't know yet. But I do know this, there are others out there like you.
Sylar: Really? How many others?
Mohinder: Dozens. And those are just the ones I know about. With more time and research I could find hundreds, thousands! But, uh... you're the first one who's returned my phone calls. But I am going to find them. All of them.
Sylar: I could go with you. I could help you. Think about it, these people could need convincing. Who better to do that?

Unexpected [1.16]

Claude: Charles Darwin bred pigeons while he was working out his theory of evolution. Married up various permutations to get maximum potential.
Peter: What'd he mean by that? Maximum potential.
Claude: I think he meant you, friend.

Sylar: Uh, before we go in, I just wanted to say thanks.
Mohinder: For what?
Sylar: Well, you know, for bringing me with you. You didn't have to do that.
Mohinder: It would have been a long road alone. I'm glad for the company.
Sylar: I believe in fate, Mohinder, and karma. And I'm not just saying that 'cause you're Indian. I mean, you really came to my rescue. And I won't forget that.

Dale: Funny, I didn't hear your footsteps.
Sylar: That's because there weren't any.
Dale: That sound, in your heart. What is it?
Sylar: [smiling] Murder.

[While hitting peter with a large stick]

Claude: Fly, [Hits him] stop time, [Hits him] paint me a pretty picture, [Hits him] do [Hits him] something [Hits him] unexpected!

[Peter uses telekinesis to hold the stick in mid-air]


[As Peter throws Claude over his shoulder]

Claude: What are you doing?
Peter: Something unexpected.

[Jumps off of the roof of the Deveaux Building and flies away]


Claude: And when you've left New York a smoking crater we'll put that on your tombstone. "Here lies Peter Petrelli. [lashes out with his stick] He tried!

Company Man [1.17]

Ted: I'm not gonna nuke the dog!

Ted: No, that was Plan A. Plan B is much better!
Matt: There is no Plan B!

Mr. Bennet: I'm not who you think I am, I'm just a paper salesman.

Mr. Bennet: I'm comfortable with morally gray.

Mr. Bennet: People are fragile. Like teacups.

Mr. Bennet: I don't know what to do.
Thompson: Is that a new sensation for you Bennet?

Claire: You want me to play dead? I'm sorry, I'm not Mr. Muggles.

Mr. Bennet: Claire is not one of you.
Claude: Not yet, but one day maybe, and don't tell me you haven't thought about it.
Mr. Bennet: She isn't, I'll take her, it's done.
Claude: Oh just like that, father of the year you are.

Ted: [to Mr. Bennet] If you're not back in an hour, just look for the mushroom cloud.

Claire: I don't know what I am. I don't know if God made me this way or someone else.
Ted: God didn't make us this way.
Sandra: God makes us all the way we are.

Parasite [1.18]

Noah: My daughter is missing, so right now I don't care if you believe me or what you do to me. I just want her home, safe. You can kill me if you want, I'm gonna find her!

Claire: When can I go back to my family?
Haitian: Shall I lie to you and say it will be soon? You know who we run from.

Sylar: So this is the list?
Mohinder: Yes, what's left of it. Most of these people are missing or dead. I'm going to run your DNA sample against my father's formula. It will take you someplace safe.
Sylar: This is your father's formula? This is how he made this, this is how he found me.
Mohinder: Yes, although I haven't figured out what it is looking for. A specific gene? Codons? It's the proverbial needle.
Sylar: Did my DNA help?
Mohinder: No.
Sylar: Okay, well, Mohinder, you've been driving all night, why don't you just take a break?
Mohinder: I can't! These people are in danger. We have to warn them. If Sylar gets to them first-
Sylar: Exactly! So let me help. I mean, here. This one is in New York - Isaac Mendez. I'll call him, and you just relax. Just take a minute.
Mohinder: You're very kind. Thank you.
Sylar: ...You have no idea how alone I used to feel. How insignificant. You've given me hope.
Mohinder: Hope is great, we need caffeine.
Sylar: So this formula, if you figure it out, how many of us will you find?
Mohinder: Who knows? Hundreds, thousands, maybe more.
Sylar: (dials Isaac's number, receives busy signal.) It's busy. I'll get him later. (Mohinder hands Sylar a cup of tea, Sylar raises his glass.) To new friends. (They clink teacups in toast; only Sylar sips the drink.) This is good, what is it?
Mohinder: Chai. It's a special blend my father brought from India.
Sylar: Who're we going to call next?
Mohinder: No one. (Stands, faces Sylar) I already have you, Mr. Sylar.

(Sylar drops the glass and passes out.)


The Haitian:[to Claire] I do not need you happy, only safe.

Sylar: I can't feel my fingers.
Mohinder: It's the curare. It induces paralysis of the brain. Which means you can't control your abilities.
Sylar: Whoever you think I am, I'm not.
Mohinder: You are the man who murdered my father. Do you still expect me to believe you're Zane Taylor? Zane was killed three days ago. The same day I met you. And you thought you were so clever giving me his DNA. You're a parasite. You killed my father and fed off his work. (taps a tuning fork against the chair and holds it up to Sylar's ear.) Let me hear you say it, tell me your name. Say it. I want to hear you say it!
Sylar: (in pain) Sylar!
Mohinder: There's only one thing to do with a parasite. Kill it before it kills again.
Sylar: You're just like your father, murderers, the both of you.
Mohinder: I'm a scientist.
Sylar: (laughs.) Your father said that but he kept leading me to them.
Mohinder: He had no idea what you were.
Sylar: He knew. He might not have admitted it, but after all, we were making so much progress together. Why would he stop?
Mohinder: (Mohinder brings out a gun and points it at Sylar.) You know nothing about my father!
Sylar: I know everything. He confided in me. He told me things he felt he could never tell you. Things about your sister, Shanti. He thought you were too... what's the word - fragile - to know the truth. That's why he liked me. (Mohinder presses the gun against Sylar's forehead.) You were always seeking his approval while I provided stimulation. He gave up on you, but he adored me. Now who's the real parasite here?! (Mohinder's hand falls to his side.)
Mohinder: You're right. My father did want answers. He called you 'Patient Zero'. You're the template he used to create this formula. You're the key to unlocking his secret. As much as I'd like to, killing you will not give me what I need.
Sylar: So what are you gonna do?
Mohinder: I'm going to take a sample of your spinal fluid. (leans down and whispers in his ear.) And it's going to hurt. You might actually do some good before you die. (Mohinder inserts needle into Sylar's spine; Sylar screams.)

Linderman: There comes a time when a man has to ask himself whether he wants a life of happiness or a life of meaning.
Nathan: I'd like to have both.
Linderman: Can't be done. Two very different paths. To be truly happy, a man must live absolutely in the present, no thought of what's gone before and no thought of what lies ahead. But a life with meaning, a man is condemned to wallow in the past and obsess about the future.

Mohinder: I finally found it. That's it, these four simple genes, they answer everything. I can make a new list. I can find them, save them.
Sylar: And what about me? Don't I deserve to be saved? Aren't I just a victim, too? I didn't ask for this.
Mohinder: And what would you have me do?
Sylar: Help find a way. Give me salvation. Give me that damn list so I can sink my teeth in! (Mohinder walks over to him.) I'm a natural progression of the species. Evolution is a part of nature, and nature kills. Simple, right?
Mohinder: What you've done is not evolution, it's murder. (holds gun up and points it at Sylar.) What I am doing is revenge. Now I can fulfill my duty as a son. (Sylar closes his eyes, and a gunshot is heard. The bullet is stopped before Sylar's face, then drops to the floor.)
Sylar: I wasn't begging for my life. I was offering you yours. (Sylar's constraints rip off, and he stands.) You are your father's son. So determined you didn't even notice I stopped the IV. But don't worry, you might actually do some good before you die. Starting with that list.

(knock on door)

Peter: Suresh? (pause as he opens door, walks inside.) Suresh? It's Peter Petrelli. Mohinder? (Peter looks around as something drops on his head.)
Mohinder: (pinned against ceiling) Sylar.
Sylar: I remember you. (pins Peter against wall and holds him by the throat.) You're like me, aren't you? I'd like to see how that works.

.07% [1.19]

[Linderman provides the opening monologue, interspersed with dialouge from previous episodes.]
Linderman: People think I collect art. What I really collect are lives fixed in paint. A perfect moment capturing an entire existence, made immortal. A monster's fight to survive, and live to kill again. A mother willing to fracture her own soul to protect her child. Youth's struggle for innocence, despite life's cruelty. The double-edged lies needed to sustain a double-edged life. A wandering hero's pure joy at success, and his darkest hour, when all the world seems lost. All perfect moments, frozen in time. Alone, each tells a single story. Together, they can tell the future.

Claire: Daddy, I'm so sorry.
Noah: Claire!
Claire: It's all my fault. I tried to do what you said... but they caught me. I'm so scared. (Noah pushes her away.) What is it?
Noah: You. You're not...
Claire: Not what?
Noah: Not you! (Claire's body morphs into Candice's form.)

Linderman: It was beautiful. And then some of my friends, they lost their way. They used their powers for personal gain and all the good that we'd done had amounted to nothing.

Linderman: People need hope, Nathan.

Linderman: This tragedy will be a catalyst for good.

Nathan: If you know all this, then you also know the exploding man is my brother.
Linderman: As I said, we all have our roles to play.

Candice: I could show him things that would make him tear his eyes out.

Noah: Maybe I'm exactly where I want to be.
Thompson: You're on death row.
Noah: If you wanted to kill me, you would have by now.
Thompson: I'm waiting for the order. That's what we do here. We follow orders.

Nathan: Japanese Feudalism. Renaissance. Rome. Mayan. Peruvian. 20th Century. You must bring all your first dates here. What do you do with all this stuff?
Linderman: I protect it. I shield it from a selfish and greedy world.

Linderman: When my day of judgment comes, Nathan, I'll be remembered as a humanitarian. I care about the world, I just want to save it. To heal it. And for that, I need you.
Nathan: What could you possibly know about healing? (Linderman looks over at a dead plant and heals it.)
Linderman: A few things.

Linderman: We all have our roles to play in the events to come. You know, this isn't just a collection of art. This is a road map. These artists envisioned a brighter future. Peace. Prosperity.

Linderman: I said people needed hope, but people trust fear.

Sylar: I remember you. You're like me, aren't you? I'd like to see how that works. (Sylar begins to open Peter's head.)
Peter: (begins screaming in pain, and then heals. Peter flings Sylar across the room against the wall, and Mohinder drops from the ceiling.)
Sylar: Oh no. I'm not done with him yet. (Peter turns invisible.) Interesting, I can't wait to try that one.

Messenger: So, what happens to Hiro in this one?
Isaac: Promise you won't post any spoilers?
Messenger: The future? How do you come up with this stuff?!
Isaac: It's a gift. Speaking of which... (hands messenger his sketchbook.)
Messenger: Your sketchbook? You serious!?
Isaac: Hold on to it. It might be worth something some day.
Messenger: Thank you!

Mohinder: Mrs. Petrelli?
Angela: Yes?
Mohinder: I'm so sorry. It's Peter.
Angela: What about him?
Mohinder: I found this address in his wallet and I didn't know where else to go. I couldn't leave him. He's dead. He was killed. Murdered. He tried to save my life... I was in over my head.
Angela: Get out of here.
Mohinder: I'm sorry.
Angela: Please leave. Now.

Noah: That went better than I expected.

Nathan: Ma?
Angela: Nathan.
Nathan: Where is he? (Nathan approaches Peter's dead body.)
Angela: He's gone, Nathan.
Nathan: (crying) No! Peter! He wasn't supposed to die this way. He wasn't supposed to die this way... What do we do?
Angela: We hide it.
Nathan: What?
Angela: 'Till after the election. The last thing he would've wanted was to bring you down with him.

[Peter examines the glass shard taken from his head.]
Peter: What do you do with something that killed you?
Nathan: You could put it underneath your pillow.

Peter: You saved my life.
Claire: Guess we're even now.

Matt: You're middle management!

Sylar: This is usually the part when people start screaming.

Isaac: I've seen enough of the future. I don't need to watch it happen.

[In studio, Isaac lays dying from Sylar's attack.]
Isaac Mendez: I finally get to be a hero...

Five Years Gone [1.20]

Ando: What happened to Hiro? Who was that?
Future Hiro: Homeland Security.
Ando: The government?
Future Hiro: They're taking him to a special holding facility in midtown.
Ando: How do you know that?
Future Hiro: Because that's where they take all the terrorists.
Ando: Why would anyone think Hiro's a— You? A terrorist?
Future Hiro: After Sylar exploded, the world became a very dark place.

Hiro: [to Parkman] You are like me. Special. Why do you want to hurt other special people?

Ando: What happened to me? Where am I? Am I rich? Married?
Future Hiro: I can't tell you that.
Ando: Why not?
Future Hiro: Because ... [translated from Japanese] The whole time/space continuum ... might implode because you were impatient.

Future Nathan: Let's be honest. I can fly. I'm hardly dangerous.

Future Matt: [Examining the tased Future Hiro] We already caught you. Two Hiros. Son of a bitch! He really can travel through time.

Claire: Who are you to decide who's special and who's not?
Future Sylar [as Nathan]: I'm the leader of the free world. For all I know, I'm the most special person there is. Lord knows I've found enough power. Met a lot of special people. Like this girl named Candice, who allowed me to become president. But, I'm done. I just want to eliminate the competition. I don't need anymore power. Especially not after you.

[Claire turns to run but is telekenetically frozen in place. Nathan raises his finger and stars to slice Claire's head open]

Claire: [whispering] Sylar.

[Nathan shapeshifts revealing himself to be Sylar]

Sylar: I've waited a long time for this.

Ando: You've always wanted to become a Kendo master.
Future Hiro: I studied in Tohoku. So, technically, I'm a Battojutsu master.
Ando: [in Japanese] Why do you always have to correct me?
Future Hiro: [in Japanese] Because, there's a difference.
Ando: What difference? You're still a hero. You became everything you wanted to be. And I- - I became dead.
Future Hiro: Peter told you?
Ando: [examining Hiro's sword] Looks like you've seen a lot of battles.
Future Hiro: More than I like to remember.
Ando: How was it?
Future Hiro: Not nearly as fun...without you.

Future Hiro: You.
Hiro: Me?
Future Hiro: What are you doing here? You're not supposed to be here. None of this is supposed to be here.
Hiro: It was an accident. We time traveled.
Ando: What happened to the city?
Future Hiro: The bomb. The bomb still happened. It was all supposed to change. Five years ago a man named Sylar exploded, changing the world forever.

Hiro: I look upset.
Ando: Go. Talk to yourself.
Hiro: No way... I scare me. You do it.

Matt: I used to be that guy. Wishing it and making it happen are two different things.
Mohinder: Not for Nakamura.

Nathan: Brother versus brother. It's almost biblical.
Peter: My brother can't walk through walls. Who are you?
Sylar: (morphs to Sylar's form.) An old friend. The guy they blamed for blowing up New York, but we know the real story, don't we Pete?
Peter: You're gonna pay for what you did to Nathan. What you did in his name!
Sylar: What I did? (activates his ice ability) When I killed Nathan he'd already turned against his own kind.
Peter: Liar! (Peter activates his fire ability and the two charge at eachother)

The Hard Part [1.21]

[translated from Japanese]

Hiro: Now the hard part...
Ando: Why are you smiling?
Hiro: It's exciting! This is our chance to change the future.
Ando: But how? How will we know what to do?
Hiro: I have Mr. Isaac's comic book. It's not finished. It only has the pictures, not the words.
Ando: We could be talking about anything.
Hiro: Let's go ask Mr. Isaac. He'll know what we say. (yelled, in English) Don't worry New York! We will save you!

[over the phone]

Mohinder: Hello?
Sylar: Mohinder. It's me. I need your help.
Mohinder: Sylar?
Sylar: I think I'm gonna do something bad.
Mohinder: You're a murderer. You don't get the luxury of regret.
Sylar: You don't understand. I think I'm gonna kill a lot more people. a lot more. I understood it before, the killing. To take what others didn't deserve. It was natural selection. But this time its different.
Mohinder: What are you talking about?
Sylar: An apocalypse. A massacre. Half the city gone in an instant...They mean nothing...They're innocent. There's no gain, so why would I do it? What possible reason could I have for killing so many?
Mohinder: [dialing on another phone] Wait. Listen. You don't have to -- If you are truly repentant about what you've done. Turn youself in.
Sylar: I can hear you dialing 9-1-1. It was a mistake to call.
Mohinder: No. Wait. Sylar? Sylar!

[Sylar hangs up the phone]


Thompson: So, have you thought about my offer? Are you ready to come work for us?
Mohinder: As far as I can tell, you're all a bunch of untrustworthy gunders.

Sylar: That clock's broken.
Virginia Gray: Oh, that old thing. I should've thrown it away years ago.
Sylar: It was Dad's.
Virginia Gray: It's junk.
Sylar: It's a beautiful piece. It just needs a little attention.
Virginia Gray: I can't tell you how proud I am.
Sylar: I haven't done anything.
Virginia Gray: You've traveled the world. Some of us only get to see it in snow globes.

Sylar: I fix watches.
Virginia Gray: That's a hobby. Investment banking is a very lucrative field.
Sylar: I can't be an investment banker.
Virginia Gray: You could be anything you want.
Sylar: Mom, he wouldn't even remember who I am.
Virginia Gray: Who could forget you?
Sylar: Mom, you're not even listening to me!
Virginia Gray: I am listening.
Sylar: No...you're making a tuna sandwich.
Virginia Gray: So?
Sylar: I asked you not to.
Virginia Gray: I made a mistake. I'm sorry.
Sylar: Mom - mom, don't. It's just... maybe I don't have to be special. That's okay, to just be a normal watchmaker. Can't you just tell me that's enough?
Virginia Gray: Why would I tell you that when I know you could be so much more? If you wanted, you could be president.

Sylar: What if I told you I can be special? Important. But to do that I have to hurt a lot of people. Should I?
Virginia Gray: You? You could never hurt anyone.
Sylar: There's a lot of things I can do you don't know about. I have something to show you. (sprays water into the air.)
Virginia Gray: What are you doing?! (Sylar moves his hand over the water and turns it into snow.)
Sylar: I know how much you love snow globes.
Virginia Gray: How did you - Gabriel? Gabriel! (snow globes start spinning with the snow and one hits his mother in the cheek.)

[Hiro and Ando watching Sylar and his mother.]

Hiro: He's so sad.
Ando: He's distracted. Go on, do it!
Hiro: I can't kill a man who is asking for forgiveness. It's not in the Bushido code. Everyone deserves a second chance.

[outside his mother's room, banging on the door.]

Sylar: Please. I'm sorry I scared you, just come out. Mom, I saw a vision of the future and I'm gonna kill a lot of people. Tell me why I would do that. Mom. Mom!

Hiro: Future Hiro killed so much, he forgot it should be hard.

Virginia Gray: I'm leaving. And when I get back I expect you to be gone.
Sylar: Don't say that, mom. It's me, it's Gabriel.
Virginia Gray: You're not Gabriel. You're damned. And I want you out of my house. (Sylar reaches forward and takes hold of his mother's wrist.) Let go! Get away from me! Get away!
Sylar: Calm down!
Virginia Gray: (she tries to pull away.) I want my son! What did you do with my son!? Give me back my boy.
Sylar: Mom, it's me, it's me, please, stop it! (his mother picks up a pair of scissors.)
Virginia Gray: You're not Gabriel! You're not, you're not! (There's a struggle, then Sylar backs away from his mother. Scene reveals he has accidentally stabbed her in the chest with the scissors.)

Sylar: I understood it before, the killing. I had a reason — to take what others didn't deserve. It was natural selection.

Landslide [1.22]

Hiro: I understand, Father. To save what is most important... I must be strong enough... to cut out my heart.

Jessica: [to Matt] Didn't I throw you through a window?

Thompson: [while pointing a gun at Matt's head] What am I thinking now, Parkman?
Noah: Your last thought. [shoots Thompson]

Jessica: He's right, D.L.. I want to take the money. I really do. I would even kill you for it. But Niki wouldn't.

Sylar: Boom...

How To Stop An Exploding Man [1.23]

Mohinder: [Voiceover] Where does it come from? This quest? This need to solve lifes mysteries when the simpliest of questions can never be answered. Why are we here? What is the soul? Why do we dream? Perhaps we would be better off not looking at all. Not delving. Not yearning. But that's not human nature. Not the human heart. That is not why we are here. Yet still we struggle to make a difference. To change the world. To dream of hope. Never knowing for certain who we'll meet along the way. Who, among the world of strangers, will hold our hand. Touch our hearts. And share the pain of trying.
Claire: Tell me you have a plan, dad.
Noah: I have a plan. I love you, Claire.
Claire: I love you too.

[Ando walks into Isaac's apartment and stops to look at a painting. Steps in a pool of blood, turns around, and Sylar pins him against the wall.]

Sylar: Hmm, looks like you dropped something. [Sylar picks up a Ninth Wonder cartoon.] A comic book that predicts the future. What will they think of next? [Sylar turns to page showing Hiro stabbing him.] You're kidding. This is how Isaac thought I'd die? Stabbed by a silly little man?
Ando: Hiro is not silly!
Sylar: You should've seen the look on his face when he tried to kill me.
Ando: You cannot take my brain.
Sylar: Please. What would I want with your brain?

Claire: The future is not written in stone!
Nathan: I'm afraid this one is.

[Having teleported to their Japanese office, Hiro hands Ando the Kensei sword.]
Hiro: It is not the sword. It is the man.

[Ando stops Hiro just as he's about to teleport back to New York to face Sylar.]
Ando: You look bad ass.
Hiro: [smiling] Really?

Sylar: Haven't I killed you before?
Peter: Didn't take.
Sylar: [chuckles] You think I'm gonna let you ruin it all? Take all the glory? [Parkman shoots at Sylar, but he stops the bullets and reflects them back.] Did you really think you could stop me?

Sylar: Turns out you're the villain, Peter. I'm the hero.
Hiro: [teleported in with sword] Sylar!
Sylar: You!

[Hiro runs forward and stabs Sylar in the left lung.]

Hiro: Yatta. (Note: Throughout the series, Hiro says "yatta," which means "I did it" in Japanese)

Claire: Please tell me there's another way.
Peter: There is no other way.
Nathan: Yes there is, Claire. The future's not written in stone.

Peter: I took his power Nathan, I can't control it.
Nathan: I'm not leaving you Peter. There's another way to end this, and you know it.
Peter: I can't let you die.
Nathan: And I can't let everyone else...
Nathan: You saved the cheerleader, so we could save the world.

[Cut to Kirby Plaza in the aftermath of the confrontation, as Molly watches Parkman moved to an ambulance.]
Mohinder: [voiceover] We dream of hope,we dream of change,of fire,of love,of death,and then it happens,the dream becomes real. And the answer to the quest,this need to solve life's mysteries finally shows itself,like the glowing light of the new dawn. So much struggle, for meaning, for purpose, but in the end we find it only in each other. Our shared experiences of the fantastic, and the mundane. The simple, human need to find the kindred, to connect, and to know in our hearts that we are not alone.

Season 2 (Volume 2: Generations)

Four Months Later [2.01]

Mohinder: The sun rises on a new dawn. Yet few of us realize the debt we owe to those responsible for this. To those who dwell among us. Anonymous, seemingly ordinary, whom destiny brought together to heal, to save us, from ourselves.

Bob: If you're really interested in saving the world, the least you could do is let me buy you a drink.

Maya: Are they really gone?
Alejandro: For now. We've got to keep going.
Maya: We've been running for eight hundred miles. I can't run anymore.
Alejandro: We have no choice.

Noah: From now on, you have to be entirely un-extraordinary.
Claire: Right. Don't stand out in any way.

Hiro: The past isn't a very safe place.

West: So, what are you?
Claire: Meaning what exactly?
West: Meaning are you one of them? Or one of the others?
Claire: I'm not sure I know what you're getting at.
West: Lemme break it down for you: are you a robot or an alien? 'Cause everyone in the world is one or the other.

Kaito: For close to thirty years I have seen my son as a disappointment. A dream who excelled at nothing. It was not until Hiro began this quest that I saw his strength, courage and wisdom. There is a legacy that I am meant to hand down to him. No, I will wait for Hiro to return. I am a man of patience.

Angela: You killed your brother, drove Heidi away, drove your kids away. If you'd followed our plan, if you'd done what you were supposed to do, he would be alive now.
Nathan: To think I almost listened to you. You're evil, ma. Get out.

Hiro: You are the hero Kensei?
Takezo: My name here is Kensei, but no one's ever called me a hero before.

Bob: We find people and we make sure they don't become dangerous. Now, sometimes that can mean making sure entirely what they're capable of and teaching them to use their abilities for the good of mankind. And sometimes it can mean eliminating them.
Mohinder: Who the hell are you to judge who lives and who dies?
Bob: If I'm not mistaken, you yourself tried to put a bullet in the brain of a man named Sylar.

Hiro: (in Japanese) Are you sure you're Takezo Kensei?
Takezo: (in Japanese) Good name, eh? "Kensei" means "sword saint". Men think twice before they trifle with that. I thought of it when I got here from England.
Hiro: [in English] You are English?!

Kaito: I sought redemption by helping Hiro fulfill his destiny to save the world. How did you help your son?

Takezo: You mustn't fret over everything my very strange little friend! Here, have some sake. Brighten your day.
Hiro: No, forget sake! You're supposed to be a hero!

Hiro: Oh no. I broke history.

Takezo: [after punchng out Hiro] The only thing I have to do, is find me a drink.

[over the phone]

Mohinder: They finally took the bait. They caught up with me in Cairo. I'm in.
Noah: Good. It's all falling into place. Just stay careful and watch your back. And you and I will bring this whole company down.

[over the phone]

Nathan: Why are you calling me?
Claire: I don't know. I'm not sure.
Nathan: Well don't do it again. I gotta go.
Claire: No, wait. Listen. I know why you're doing this. I get it, I miss him too. I just- I need someone to talk to. I don't know if I can do this anymore.
Nathan: Do what?
Claire: Not be who I really am. And I know that I-I can't be who they want me to be and I juts feel like I'm gonna burst.
Nathan: Look, I know you're looking for answers. We all are. But trust me, I'm not the guy to give them to you. I'm sorry.

Irish Mobster: Who are you? What's your name?
Peter: I don't know... I don't know...

Lizards [2.02]


HRG: Compared to the life I had, normal is a pretty nice vacation.

Hiro: Have you seen a scary white man?

[in Japanese]

Takezo: (drunkenly)You look like a fish when you talk. Like a giant carp!
Hiro: I already made a mess of the past. The space/time continuum can't take anymore. History needs Takezo Kensei to be a hero today... (Hiro puts on Takezo's armor and rides away on horseback.) Ando's never going to believe this one!

Bob: Oh, and doctor? As of right now your blood is the only cure for this virus. Try not to get yourself killed.

Caitlin: Impossible. I've just wrung out a lot of your blood, and you don't have a mark on you.

West: So, lizards, huh?
Claire: Tell me you didn't just time that so I'd walk right past you.
West: I figured you'd be more into whales or something. Unicorns.
Claire: You know, you make a lot of assumptions. Is my hair really that blonde?
West: I think it's cool actually. I'm sort of into genetics too.
Claire: I didn't say I was into genetics.
West: You don't have to hide everything interesting about you. Biology is supposed to be our destiny. But people forget genes can change!
Claire: I thought guys like you were supposed to sit in the back of the classroom and hate everything.
West: I just found this book. It's by some Indian guy, I can barely even pronounce his name. It's about everything you're talking about. People who evolved. There's a whole chapter on regeneration!
Claire: Sorry, I left all my awesome genetics expert reading for the summer vacation.

Hiro: (in Takezo's armor) my father once told me deer are the messengers of god. if you tell a deer your wish it can pass on the message.
Yaeko: Heaven has already sent me what I most desire. Someone to save us all. And bring us hope.
Hiro: (in Takezo's armor) You are too kind.
Yaeko: Take off your mask.
Hiro: (in Takezo's armor) There are things I could not say if you looked on my face. You... disarm me. It is no surprise Takezo Kensei's love for you will be the stuff of legends.
Yaeko: Will it? (Hiro nods)

The Haitian: You work for people?
Mohinder: A company.
The Haitian: Of course, there's always a company.

Mr. Bennet: [to Claire] You may feel confined here but this is far freer a cage than the one they'd put you in.

Takezo: (faintly) Sorry, Carp. I'll help you be a hero the next time around.
Hiro: No! You cannot die! (Kensei's wound heals.) Godsend!

Kindred [2.03]

Michelle: [answering cell phone] Hey. No, he's still sleeping. What can I say? The guy is tired. He's waking up, I'll have to call you later. (to Sylar) Good morning sleepyhead! You wanna go for a dip?
Sylar: Where am I?
Michelle: We're in Maui. Nice, huh? Feel those trade winds.
Sylar: Who are you?
Michelle: I'm Michelle. (reaches out to shake hands.) I used to go by Candice, but ever since I pulled you off Kirby Plaza, the police have kind of been looking for my old self. I'm going for a new look. (shakes her hair around) What do you think?
Sylar: You dragged me off Kirby Plaza?
Michelle: After you got stabbed through the chest with a samurai sword. Eight surgeries later, and here we are. Which reminds me, don't try to move or you'll rip your stitches. Daiquiri?
Sylar: Stitches? There's nothing there.
Michelle: I covered them up. I make illusions, it's kind of my thing.
Sylar: So none of this is real? Show me what's really going on here.
Michelle: Honey, you really don't wanna know.
Sylar: Show me! (scenery changes and Sylar looks down at his stomach wound, tries to get up, and starts screaming in pain.)

[discussing Claire cutting off her toe]

Claire: It was a pedicure.
West: What?
Claire: I was giving myself a pedicure.
West: You're not very good at it!

Mohinder: Someone's grouchy when they don't get their sleep.
Matt: Molly's struggling. Nightmares, problems in school. I can't babysit her and you at the same time.
Mohinder: And why would I need babysitting?
Matt: You're in over your head.
Mohinder: Thank you, but I'm-
Matt: They abducted me! Kept me prisoner. I know you think you can beat them at their own game but, no offense Mohinder, you're a professor. You're not 007.
Mohinder: I told myself I would do whatever it took to take down the company. That's how I can help Molly.

Prisoner: (to Alejandro) Dude, you look like ass.

Takezo: I cut myself, and the wound heals. Over and over again.
Hiro: You are a hero, like me. I have power too.
Takezo: You? Really?
Hiro: Yes. I can stop time and move through space. (teleports behind Takezo) Hello!
Takezo: How are such things possible?
Hiro: Some say it's a gift from god. Some people think it's evolution.
Takezo: What is that? Evolution?
Hiro: It means you can heal from any wound.
Takezo: Really? Any wound? Sword? Serpent? Fire? (Hiro nods.) This'll make me richer than the pope!

West: I take it you're annoyed.
Claire: What is it, West? Huh? What do you want from me?
West: I want you to admit you're different.
Claire: Okay, fine, I'm a freak. Alright?
West: Claire.
Claire: I am such a freak, in fact, that I have to tip-toe around this school pretending to be a brainless Barbie doll so nobody notices how different I am. 'Cause if they found out, I'd be carted off to some human zoo where I'd be poked and prodded at for the rest of my life. So yeah, West, I'm different. And you can tell the world if you want to because I'm tired of pretending to be someone I'm not.
West: Claire, shut up. (lifts her up and flies.)

Sylar: Everything that I've been working for, everything I had, is gone.

Sylar: You? How you are going to help? You gonna make me some more eggs?
Michelle: By making it easy. By making it fun. I can take you anywhere you wanna go. Paris. London. How about Japan? And I can be anyone you want me to be. [morphs into a Japanese woman in a kimono.] (Suggestively)If your fantasy is exotic...[morphs into two blonde twins who touch Sylar on the arms before walking off.]...Or more run of the mill.[morphs into Sylar himself.]...Or something more familiar...if that's what you're into. (returns to her own form.) (returns to her normal tone.)You see? I can help you. We were meant to do this together.
Sylar: [Considers her, looking thoughtful. He stands and walks to her, whispering seductively before smashing a cup into her head and killing her.] I underestimated you. You truly are extraordinary...Just like me. You were right. I am gonna get my abilities back. Starting with yours.

Ricky: (to Peter) I may not know what you are, but I know who you are. You're one of us. And we have no secrets in the family.

The Kindness of Strangers [2.04]


Noah: Claire, your mother and I need to talk to you. About boys.
Claire: Oh please, not the sex talk again, it was painful enough the first time.

Claire: Dad, believe it or not, there are people in the world who aren't out to get us.

Matt: It's getting worse. Two a night now. I'm trying to listen in, get in her head. I keep getting thrown back.
Mohinder: So what are we supposed to do?
Matt: I don't know. You're the scientist!
Mohinder: That doesn't exactly make me an expert on nightmares.
Matt: That makes two of us.

Nathan: I know I haven't been around, and I'm sorry about that. But I'm coming home. I promise. And what do Petrelli's do when they make promises?
Nathan's children: Keep them!

Maya: So, you are from California?
Derek: California?
Maya: Mm-hmm, on the license on the car, it says California.
Derek: Oh, that. No, I just picked the car up there. I'm actually from Jersey.
Maya: This is very, very close to New York. We are going to New York, my brother and I-
Derek: Look, I can take you guys pretty far, but when we get to the border, chances are they're gonna be looking for all of us.
Alejandro: (in Spanish) What's he saying?
Maya: (in Spanish) He says they'll be looking for us at the bord- (Derek stops the car because there's someone lying in the middle of the road. They all get out of the car to look.) Oh my god!
Alejandro: (in Spanish) What happened to him?
Derek: Dude looks dead. (The three of them turn him over.)
Sylar: (voice hoarse) Help me.

West: Hi.
Claire: Hi.
West: I can't stop thinking about yesterday. It was amazing! I finally found someone I can be myself with.
Claire: Uh... about that. I-I'm not sure we should hang out anymore. It's just my parents are really overprotective.
West: Is this because we flew together? It weirded you out, didn't it?

Matt: I can read your mind. Just like I read your mother's, but I can't tell my partner what I know or how I know it.
Nathan: Are you reading my mind right now?
Matt: No-yes, sorry.

Angela: (to Nathan) Don't let your children hate you. Not if you can help it.

Maya: (in Spanish) It's a miracle! A sign from God, we're on the right path. (in English to Sylar) Thank you! I don't know what to say, I don't even know your name!
Sylar: It's Gabriel. (looks down at broken watch and his eyes fix on the word "Sylar" at the top.) Gabriel Gray.
Maya: Gabriel. Oh! Like the angel.
Sylar: Yeah. (turns away from Maya.) Just like the angel.

Monica: I don't know. Maybe God's punishing me.
Camille: Now why would he do that?
Monica: For being selfish. I pray for it every Sunday in church, for God to find me a way out of here. Everybody else is praying for the community, to put things back together, to give them strength. Not me. I'm just praying for a way out.

(West catches Claire after jumping from HOLLYWOOD sign)

Claire: You caught me.
West: Of course I did.
Claire: But I would have been fine.
West: I know you can heal, Claire, but I never want to see you hurt.

(Derek buys newspaper with Alejandro and Maya's pictures on the front.)

Derek: Gabriel. Come here, check this out. There are killers. In the car with us.
Sylar: What?
Derek: Homocidio. Right there.
Sylar: Well, golly, they seem so...
Derek: Dude, I have been riding with them for two days! We gotta ditch 'em.
Sylar: Okay. Um. Alright, I'll distract them. And you- you go call the police. There's a pay phone right inside. (Derek goes to find the pay phone, and Sylar picks up brick and walks after him.)

Maya: (in Spanish) Derek is calling the police! (Maya and Sylar's eyes go black.)
Sylar: What are you doing to me?! (Alejandro grabs Maya's hands.)
Alejandro: (in Spanish) Calm down, calm down, calm down... (their eyes return to normal.)
Sylar: You both... have powers?
Maya: This is not our fault! We don't know what is happening to us.
Sylar: That's why you need to find Dr. Suresh.
Maya: Yes.
Sylar: Believe me, I understand what you're going through. To be held responsible for things you didn't mean to do. Being hunted. I've helped Suresh with so many people like you, he'll know what to do.
Maya: But the police!
Sylar: (holds up car keys) They'll have to catch us first.

Mohinder: Molly's finally settling down.
Matt: I'm sorry.
Mohinder: Did you know?
Matt: No, I'm sorry. The thing is, Molly has to find my father.
Mohinder: That is out of the question.
Matt: A lot of people in this photo are dead. This guy, dead. This guy, dead! Kaito Nakamura, murdered. Angela Petrelli, attacked. This is my dad. He may already be dead, he may be the next victim. He may be the killer! I have to find that out.
Mohinder: Okay, this man here, this is the man I work for. His name is Bob, I'll take you to him.
Matt: Fine. After we find my dad.
Mohinder: You leave Molly out of this! You are asking a little girl to confront her worst nightmare!
Matt: Maybe confronting it is exactly what she needs!
Mohinder: Oh, so this is all about helping Molly? Because to me it sounds like a thirteen-year-old boy trying to make his daddy pay for leaving him!
Matt: And you know everything about daddy issues?
Mohinder: Yeah, I do.

Fight or Flight [2.05]

Mohinder: (voiceover) When confronted by our worst nightmares, the choices are few. Fight, or flight. We hope to find the strength to stand against our fears but sometimes, despite ourselves, we run.

Mohinder: [to Matt] Molly faced her worst nightmare for you. Do the same for her.

Nathan: Let me come with you.
Matt: Fine. We can probably get there faster, 'cause you can- you know-?
Nathan: I'm not a cargo jet, Parkman.

Maury: We thought we could help people, save the world.
Matt: The only thing you've ever wanted to save is your own ass.
Maury: Still angry, huh Matt? Feel better, slapping the cuffs on your dad, making you feel good?
Matt: It's starting to, yeah.

Noah: The moment you trust them with what you care about most, they'll have you. Don't forget whose side your on.

Mohinder: This is how you help people? By tazering them?
Bob: Well, that's just standard procedure to make sure everyone's safe. A lot of people we encounter aren't in control of their abilities. But trust me, it's easier to apologize than ask permission.

Elle: Y’know, I’ve never been in an Irish pub before. Do you have haggis?
Ricky: That’s Scotland, love. We have stew. And mussels. And stew.

Ricky: I'm sorry I couldn't be anymore help.
Elle: Yeah, so am I.

[in a dream sequence induced by Matt's father.]

Matt: You said I wasn't the father.
Janice: But you read minds. You looked into my head and saw the truth, but you still left.
Matt: No. No I didn't. I didn't know!
Janice: You left him, just like your father left you. Just like you're gonna leave Molly.
Matt: No!

[in a dream sequence induced by Matt's father.]

Nathan: (to his other self) You don't want redemption. You want ignorance.

Mohinder: [to Monica] I'm sure you have lots of questions about what's happening to you. Well, I have some answers.

The Line [2.06]

Peter: The plane ticket, the painting. It all points to Montreal. It's a start.
Caitlin: I'm going with you.
Peter: No, I'm not risking your life too.
Caitlin: We were both in that Montreal painting. I think I'm supposed to go with you, Peter. Besides, when you find Ricky's killer, I want to be there.
Peter: What for?
Caitlin: To kill the bitch.

Sylar: Your ability is fascinating. A gift.
Maya: What I do is terrible. I have taken many lives, and I can't control it.
Sylar: I was like you. I could do things, amazing things.
Maya: You? Like what?
Sylar: I could move objects with my mind. I could hear a pin drop from miles away. But then it all just... went away. That's why I need to see Dr. Suresh. To get them back.
Maya: You want to be different?
Sylar: I want to be special. Unique. An ability doesn't have to be a burden, Maya. (Sylar reaches over and strokes Maya's hair.) It can be wonderful. (Alejandro wakes up and Sylar moves away from Maya.)
Alejandro: (in Spanish) Stop at the next gas station. I need to find a coyote to take us across.
Maya: (in Spanish) What? What about Gabriel?
Alejandro: (in Spanish) I don't trust him, Maya. I see the way he looks at you. Why is he still here?
Sylar: Is there a problem?
Maya: My brother wants to hire a coyote, to cross the border without you.
Sylar: Why? You can't trust them.
Maya: (in Spanish) God delivered Gabriel to us, Alejandro. We should put our faith in him. (in English) It's okay. We will cross the border together. I'm glad to have found you, Gabriel.

Hiro: Tonight, we will attack. Three of us against an army. But even with powers, I fear for the sword smith's life. And for Yaeko. The woman I love, but cannot have.

Ivan: I'm like you. Family comes first. Maybe we can make a deal.
Noah: What kind of deal?
Ivan: You were my protégé, so dedicated to the company you made me proud. I miss that. I want you back.
Noah: Forget it.

Maya: What is that?
Sylar: A border fence, not finished yet. That is America right there.
Maya: (in Spanish) Alejandro, we made it! That's the United States. (Maya drives through the fence, and police cars surround them.)
Police: Attention, you're in violation of US immigration. We have notified border patrol. All right boys, andale, andale. Come out with your hands up.
Maya: Who are they?
Sylar: They're locals. Not border patrol. They're fake police, just drive around them. (Policeman cocks his gun.)
Maya: (in Spanish) God help us.
Police: Alright boys, this is your last warning. Vamanos!
Sylar: We have to go.
Maya: They will shoot us!
Alejandro: (in Spanish) We never should have listened to him--
Maya: (in Spanish) Alejandro, stop!
Sylar: (yelling) Just drive, now!
Maya: (in Spanish) It's happening.
Alejandro: (in Spanish) Give me your hand! (Alejandro reaches for Maya's hand as Sylar smacks it away and grabs Maya's wrist.)
Sylar: No, no, no, no, no. Let her alone.
Alejandro: (in Spanish) What are you doing?! You'll die!
Sylar: We need to get past these men, these guns. You can use your gift. (Policemen still banging around the car and yelling at them.)
Alejandro: (in Spanish) Maya take my hand, hurry.
Maya: No. (Maya's eyes turn black.)
Alejandro: (in Spanish) Maya, what are you doing!? (men collapse around the car and Sylar's eyes go black.)
Sylar: (faintly) Drive.

Debbie: The next time you think of that second helping of chunky monkey, remember one thing: the sharpie doesn't lie. Appearance matters girls.

Yaeko: Father! We came to save you.
Hiro: I am Hiro. And this is the great swordsman Takezo Kensei. He has come to save you.
Yaeko's father: Kensei? I thought you were a drunk.
Kensei: Turns out, I'm a hero.

Bob: But right now I'm dealing with someone who is a real danger to us, to everyone. And I'm afraid that in my haste to deal with him I overstepped my bounds.
Mohinder: The file you were holding, Adam Monroe.
Bob: Yes. You're valuable to us, Dr. Suresh. Not just for your blood or your knowledge, but to keep us in line.

Yaeko: How did we get here, Hiro?
Hiro: I don't know. We should find Kensei. He'll explain everything
Yaeko: No, you did it. You held me, and then we were here. You can move people from one place to another. (Yaeko covers Hiro's mouth.) You... with a mask. It was you, Hiro. All this time. It was you that did all those amazing things.
Hiro: I only wanted to fix history.
Yaeko: You saved me from the brigands. You were the one under the cherry blossoms. Do you... love me, Hiro?
Hiro: I do. Very much.
Yaeko: Everything I loved in Kensei came from you.

Hiro: It was the kiss that fractured time.

(Alejandro is beating up Sylar next to the car.)

Maya: (in Spanish) Alejandro! Stop! I did what I had to do, for all of us!
Alejandro: (in Spanish) Listen to what you're saying! You're a killer, because of him. I won't do this. You have to choose. Either he goes, or I do.
Maya: (in Spanish) Don't, Alejandro. We need Gabriel. He can take us to Dr. Suresh. To salvation!
Alejandro: (in Spanish) Fine. He can stay. But the next time your eyes blacken, don't look for my hand. It won't be there. I will let him die. (Alejandro moves away.)
Maya: (to Sylar) I will get something for your lip. (Maya walks away.)
Sylar: I know you don't understand me, but I want to tell you why I'm helping you. It's that delicious power. You see, when I get my abilities back, I'm gonna kill you... and your sister. And I'm gonna take it all. And if I don't get my ability back, it's not a total loss. Maya's learning quickly. She's a shiny new toy, and she's all mine. (Sylar smiles.)

Hiro: Kensei! I've been searching for hours. Come my friend, we must go buack and destroy White Beard's guns.
Kensei: If you want to stop him do it yourself.
Hiro: Something wrong?
Kensei: I saw you Hiro. After I saved the swordsmith I came looking for you, afraid something happened to Yaeko, 'cause I love her. And you, friend, betrayed me.
Hiro: No-
Kensei: Yes, you kissed her.
Hiro: It happened by accident.
Kensei: You accidentally kissed her?
Hiro: I accidentally fell in love with her. And she with me. I'm so sorry.
Kensei: So you've been lying to me all along. First you show me that I can be harmed by no weapon and then you hurt me deeper than any blade possibly could.
Hiro: She's your princess, Kensei. I know that. And I swear I will not give into love. That kiss will be our last.

Out of Time [2.07]

Hiro: Why is everything so purple?

Matt: (to Molly) I'm supposed to be out hunting Maury, but I had to see you. I never should have asked you to use your ability to find my dad. You were just trying to make me happy. I know that feeling. When my dad left, I blamed myself. I thought that I was too slow. Too fat. Too stupid. I thought that if I was better, if I was smarter, he would have stayed. And now they want me- they think that I can stop him, that I've got this power. And I don't. I don't. I need you to hear, I need you to know that I love you. (Molly's stats go up for a moment.) Did you just hear me? Molly?

Kensei: We did make a good time you and I. You showed me how to be a hero. How to love. And then you took it all away. Do it, stop time, kill me, chop off my head.
Hiro: I will not do it. I still have faith in you.
Kensei: The honorable Hiro Nakamura. He won't kill you, he'll just lie, and steal.
Hiro: I wanted to help you become a hero!

Kensei: As long as I have breath anything you love I will lay to waste. I swear. (in Japanese) You will suffer.

Yaeko: Perhaps now you can live happily with his princess.
Hiro: That's not how the story ends. It is the last trial. "Kensei and the Dragon". My father told it to me. The dragon who taught Kensei the way of the sword... demanded his love in return.
Yaeko: What did Kensei do?
Hiro: He cut out his own heart to save her. To save Japan.
Yaeko: Is that what you must do now? Cut out your heart?
Hiro: I nearly destroyed time by staying when I should have left. I must go back.
Yaeko: As long as I have a voice, all shall know the tale of noble Takezo Kensei. The boy Hiro Nakamura will have tales to help him sleep.
Hiro: And he will dream of the Princess.

Niki: Does it hurt?
Mohinder: Only when I breathe.

Mohinder: I have something I need to tell you. I have been working with Bennet to take down this company.
Bob: Why are you telling me this now?
Mohinder: Because, I'm unsure if it's right, if it's wrong. And it's time to stop playing games.
Bob: There's a storm coming Dr. Suresh.

Noah: Your tiny rebellions are putting this family in danger!

Peter Petrelli: [to himself] Adam, I don't know any Adam. [hears noise behind him, shoots bolt of lightning in direction, hits a hand that heals immediately]
Adam Monroe: [emerging from behind armoire] Peter, what the hell was that?
Peter: You know my name?
Adam: Of course I do. You're Peter Petrelli. Don't you remember? We're going to change history.

Four Months Ago [2.08]

Mohinder: (voiceover) It is man's ability to remember that sets us apart. We are the only species that is concerned with the past. How memories give us voice. And to bear witness to history so that others might learn. So that they might celebrate our triumphs and be warned of our failures.

Nathan: (to Peter) You go, I go.

Maya: I'd rather see you dead than married to my brother!

Bob: Did ya have to use a full blast on him?
Elle: He can take it.

Bob: He's not a toy, Elle.
Elle: He could be...

Bob: As I said before, you're safe here. But your brother is another story. He almost died.
Elle: Because of you, Peter. Hey, it's not like it was your idea to go nuclear and take out half of New York City.

Elle: [referring to her electric shocks] You'll get used to it. And then you'll start to like it.

Micah: We could be like the Fantastic Four! Minus one, but still.

Adam: You know, it's been a month. You still haven't told me your name.
Peter: Please, I just wanna be left alone.
Adam: You came to the right place. I have to warn you though, it does get a bit old. Let me guess, you were living a perfectly ordinary life until one day you discovered you could do incredible things. I bet it was wonderful at first. You thought perhaps you could save the world. And then you realized, tragically, that you were dangerous. I'll let you talk to me after a decade. Oh, actually, talk to me after three.
Peter: If they wanna leave me in here forever that's fine by me.
Adam: You've been through something awful haven't you? I'm sorry.
Peter: I'm Peter.
Adam: Hello, Peter. It's nice to meet you. I'm Adam.

Elle: I accidentally set my grandmother's house on fire when I was six. Caused a blackout in four counties in Ohio when I was eight. I spent my ninth birthday in a glass room with an IV of lithium in my arm. I've lived in this building for sixteen years, ever since the shrinks diagnosed me as a sociopath with paranoid delusions - but they were just out to get me because I threatened to kill 'em. I'm 24 years old and I've never gone on a date. Never been on a roller coaster, never been swimming. And now you know everything there is to know about me. I don't have the luxury of being more interesting than that.

Mohinder: (voiceover) There are many ways to define our fragile existence. Many ways to give it meaning. But it is our memories that shape its purpose and give it context. The private assortment of images, fears, loves, regrets. For it is the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light. The good with the evil. Success with disappointment. This is what separates us. What makes us human. And in the end, we must fight to hold on to.

Cautionary Tales [2.09]


Bob: Welcome to Costa Verde.
Mohinder: How are we going to do this?
Bob: Swiftly. We grab Claire, we take out her father, we get out.
Mohinder: When you say "take out" you mean kill?
Bob: It is a euphemism.

Bob: That's what I like about you Dr. Suresh. Your moral compass always faces true north.

Bob: I hope you're using sunscreen?
Elle:Ugh... Overprotective much?
Bob: Mohinder, I would like you to meet my daughter, Elle.
Mohinder: Your daughter!? She's the executioner!?
Elle: What's your power? Punching bag?

Bob: I hope you've been practicing your sharpshooting. I don't want Noah to get close to you.
Elle: Hey fight club, check this out!

Sandra: Did you really do what Claire said? Abduct him when he was just a boy?
Noah: I thought we were doing good. Saving the world.

Elle: Do you know what happens when you change your plans midstream?
Mohinder: No.
Elle: Neither do I! Because we don't do it.

Elle: Don't you think if push came to shove he'd do the same to you?
Mohinder: No. I don't.
Elle: He's adorable! Can I keep him?

[Bob rolls his eyes]


Kaito: We have the power of gods. That does not mean we can play God.

Mohinder: Have you killed many people?
Elle: [defensively] How is that any of your business?
Mohinder: I guess it's not.

Noah: You've gone native!

Mohinder: I have to do what I think is right. (pulls out a gun and points it at Noah) Start driving. (cocks the gun) Please.

Noah: (after taking Mohinder's gun and punching him in the nose) You lie to me. Betray me. You come after my daughter. (cocks gun) How did you think it was gonna end?

Angela Petrelli: (allowing Matt to read her thoughts) Are you trying to read my mind again? (speaking out aloud this time) I knew your father when he could do it. Frankly I'm even less impressed with you.
Matt: (not losing his resolve) My father made you give yourself all those scars, didn't he? Did you know when his mind-reading became something more? When push became pull - and then he discovered that...he could put thoughts into...anyone's head?
Angela Petrelli: (realizing that Matt can now manipulate people through his powers) Don't do this...

Noah: Did you pack Mr. Muggles' doggy bath?

Noah: [referring to Elle shocking herself] Stings like a bitch, doesn't it?

Noah: Your father was leading the charge.
Elle: I don't remember any of that.
Noah: No memories, huh? Kind of like someone took them away? Why do you think I never let the company anywhere near Claire? I didn't want her to become you.

Young Hiro: My father's going to die too?!
Hiro: Not for a long time!
Young Hiro: No! I must stop it. I am a hero!
Hiro: Some things even Takezo Kensei cannot change. We cannot play god.
Young Hiro: But I must honor him!
Hiro: Listen to him. Learn from his lessons. Strength... responsibility... and justice.

Hiro: I suppose this is... goodbye.
Kaito: I've never time traveled before. I'm proud of you son.
Hiro: Goodbye Father. Please give my love to Mother.

Angela: The truth is that our generation mortgaged our souls to protect yours. Show a little respect for that. Let go of your daddy issues and let us be!

Noah: No matter what I do, we'll always be running. But if you die, Bob, the company dies with you.
Mohinder: Please, don't do this! (shoots Noah)

Hiro: I refuse to eulogize my father. To eulogize him is to admit he is gone. My father is not dead. Kaito Nakamura taught me right from wrong. What it means to be a hero... so long as the lessons live on through me, he will never die. My father taught me to understand that certain things are in God's hands, but for everything else, God has given us the gift of choice. My father gave me the tools to fight the battles ahead. Every hand I extend in kindness is his hand. And every blow that I strike for justice is his fist. So long as the lessons he taught stay with me, and so long as he lives on in my heart, then my father is never truly dead.

Truth & Consequences [2.10]


Maya: It's beautiful here, Gabriel. Thank you. I almost feel normal.
Sylar: After you see Dr. Suresh you will be.
Maya: And then Alejandro and I can go back home.
Sylar: What if Alejandro could go home now?
Maya: But I need my brother. He's the only one who can stop me from hurting anyone else.
Sylar: What if you could learn to control your own power? I've seen people's power grow. Do you love your brother enough to let him go?
Maya: Of course. It's... it's just not possible.
Sylar: Well, you'll never know unless you try.
Maya: We should get back. (Maya stands up.)
Sylar: You put him through enough, Maya.
Maya: Me?
Sylar: He gave up his entire life for you, even after you killed his wife.
Maya: It was an accident.
Sylar: You really think he's forgiven you?
Maya: She was cheating on him!
Sylar: So you think she deserved to die?
Maya: That is not what I meant.
Sylar: But you wanted to kill her, didn't you Maya?
Maya: Stop it. Let me go.
Sylar: Where? Back to your brother? He hates you.
Maya: Don't do this. Please! (Maya and Sylar's eyes go black.)
Sylar: If you can control your power, no more innocent people have to die.
Maya: I can't!
Sylar: (voice hoarse) Help. You're killing me. Help... please. (their eyes return to normal.)
Maya: You were right. I did it! (hugs Sylar.)

Victoria: I knew blowing your head off was the only way to be sure. Better late than never.

Adam: (marks a picture of Victoria with the double helix in his blood.) If anyone survives, I'll tell them I couldn't have done it without you.

Micah: We need to be heroes like Dad.
Niki: Being a hero is what got your father killed.

Claire: I've fallen twenty stories. Been stabbed in the head. Crashed a car at 70 miles an hour. I've even been on fire. But this hurts... More than any of that. And it's not getting better. I've always gotten better, no matter what, but this just keeps getting worse.

Claire: We can tell the world what they did. How they kidnapped me and murdered my father.
Elle: You have no proof. No one would believe you.
Claire: You're probably right. I guess I'm just gonna have to show them. (punches the driver's side window of Elle's car breaking it. Shows the cuts on her hand to Elle as it heals) I'll show everyone exactly what I can do. Once the secrets out, you won't be able to touch me or my family. You'll be the ones running.

Bob: I need you to keep an eye on Claire.
Elle: It would be much easier to do if I didn't have this thing around my arm. It itches like a mother f-!
Bob: And I thought my girl was tough.
Elle: I am Dad, but I was shot! and my body doesn't heal itself.

Elle: Watch who you're shoving, pom-pom!

Claire: This isn't fair!
Elle: Welcome to life!

Powerless [2.11]


Sylar: Welcome home, Dr. Suresh. - What happened to your nose?
Mohinder: Where's Molly?
Sylar: Asleep. Keep your voice down, we don't want to wake her.
Mohinder: What is it you want?
Sylar: Breakfast? I hope you don't mind. Maya cooked. She makes the most amazing chilaquiles.
Maya: It's such an honor to meet you.
Sylar: He's the one that should be honored. Maya came all the way from South America just to be here, Mohinder.
Mohinder: Really? Why's that?
Maya: I read your father's book. He has so many answers, but I have so many more questions.
Sylar: Sit, eat. I'm starving.
Maya: When Gabriel told me you two knew each other, I knew fate brought us together.
Mohinder: Gabriel. You mean Sylar, don't you? You do know this man is a killer?
Maya: Yes. He told me.
Mohinder: He did?
Maya: And I am ashamed to admit that I have taken lives as well. I have this sickness that comes out of me. It poisons everyone around. I need your help, Dr. Suresh.
Mohinder: So that's what this is about.
Sylar: We both need your help.
Mohinder: Why is that?
Sylar: I was reading about your lab work on the laptop. The Shanti virus. Does it really take away a person's abilities?
Mohinder: It also has the unfortunate side effect of killing the person affected.
Maya: Is that why your powers are gone? That you have this virus? (Mohinder and Sylar stand at the same time, Mohinder with a knife and Sylar holding a gun. Mohinder drops his knife.)
Maya: Gabriel, what are you doing?!
Sylar: Maya, I need you to stay calm. Apparently, Mohinder, your blood is the answer to my ills.
Mohinder: No, no, not always. Trust me, there are many different strains of the virus.
Sylar: But when you mix it with a certain cheerleader's blood, it changes, doesn't it? And it heals anything. Isn't that right, doctor?
Maya: You lied to me?
Mohinder: I don't know what he told you, but he is not my friend. He's a monster. (Maya's eyes go black, as do Mohinder's and Sylar's.)
Sylar: Maya! Do not spoil this!
Maya: My brother was right not to trust you!
Sylar: Do you really want to kill Dr. Suresh, the one man who can save you? (Molly screams in pain and walks in.)
Mohinder: Molly!
Sylar: And she dies... a sweet, innocent little girl. Stop it, Maya! Now!

Peter: Hiro?
Hiro: Peter Petrelli?
Peter: What are you doing here?
Hiro: Adam Monroe killed my father. And for that, he must pay.
Peter: No! I can't let you hurt him.
Hiro: Why are you protecting him?
Peter: Adam is my friend.
Hiro: He was my friend too. 400 years ago. He betrayed me. He will betray you.
Peter: No! He saved my brother's life!
Hiro: He murdered my father.
Peter: Your father had him locked away for 30 years. I know, I was in that same prison. Hiro... I went into the future. There's a virus. It kills almost everyone. And it starts here. Today. Adam and I are gonna stop it.

Sandra: You are really going through with this.
Claire: They killed Dad, they're never going to leave us alone.
Sandra: You do realize what'll happen to us if you tell everyone what we can do.
Claire: Yes. No more running, no more hiding, no more secrets.
Sandra: Your dad couldn't take down this company, Claire, what makes you think you can?

Claire: I love you Mom, but I can't live in fear of some big "what if".

Bob: Do you realize how much damage you've done by provoking Claire?
Elle: I couldn't help it. She was just so... weepy, and earnest and... who knew she'd turn whistle-blower?
Bob: It's totally unprofessional, not to mention petty. And Claire is not even in your league!
Elle: She isn't working with a gunshot wound.
Bob: You and I both know you have performed well below what you can do. You're benched. No more field assignments.
Elle: How's about if I said I was sorry?
Bob: When I think about all the hard work I've put into raising you...
Elle: Daddy...

Elle: You said you knew all about my ability. Tell me what my dad did to me.
HRG: I'm stuck in this hellhole. My family thinks I'm dead. There's not a lot of incentive to share.
Elle: (creates a ball of electricity in her hand) I could make you tell me.
HRG: You could try. (Elle lets the electricity in her hand disappear)
Elle: Please. I don't have anyone else to talk to.
HRG: They wanted to see how much wattage you could discharge. Enough to power a flashlight, street lamp, an entire city block? During testing you'd pass out from the strain. We'd all want to call it a day, but Daddy said, "No, my girl's tougher than that." You were seven. You know, the hardest thing a parent ever does is to have to see their child in pain. Most parents.
Bob: Elle. What are you doing here?
Elle: Leaving.

Peter: Did you kill Hiro's father?
Adam: I did. He saw to it that the virus be safely kept here. If he didn't plan to use it, why not destroy it?
Peter: Why don't you make me believe you, Adam? Hiro said not to trust you.
Adam: The woman you love is trapped in some horrible future where nearly everyone is dead. You can change that. She needs you, Peter. We all need you. To open that door.

Maya: You're nothing like you said you were. Alejandro was right about you all along.
Sylar: You wanna get rid of your powers, I want mine back. After Suresh fixes me, I'll gladly take yours off your hands. There's a bed over there. Stay put, stay calm, and remember... (holds up gun)
Molly: Mohinder!
Mohinder: It'll be okay, Molly, I promise.
Sylar: So this is your... laboratory, huh? I killed that artist, Isaac Mendez, right on this very spot.
Mohinder: I'm going to have to take a sample of your blood.
Sylar: Why?
Mohinder: You self-diagnosed. I need to know what strain of the virus you have, or if you even have it at all.
Sylar: Just give me the remedy.
Mohinder: It doesn't work like that. The wrong dosage will kill you. (allows Mohinder to take his blood.)
Sylar: Your father helped me find my gift, now here you are restoring it. Life has its poetry, doesn't it?
Mohinder: My father, who you murdered.
Sylar: Your father, who betrayed me. Don't make that same mistake, Mohinder. (Mohinder roughly inserts needle to take his blood.) Ouch!

Nathan: Listening to my mother has never led to anything good. If Peter becomes a problem, I'll handle him.
Hiro: Flying Man!
Matt: Who's this guy supposed to be?

Claire: You won't leave me, will you, Mr. Muggles?

Maya: I wish Alejandro was here to help.
Molly: Who's that?
Maya: He's my brother. I sent him away. Gabriel said...
Molly: I can find him for you. Even if he's far away. So you know he's safe.
Maya: You can? How?
Molly: I just know where people are. I need a picture or something to think about.
Maya: This is Alejandro. (pulls out a picture.) Here. (Molly concentrates.)
Molly: He's not anywhere.
Maya: But... If he's not anywhere... (Maya stands.)
Mohinder: How--? You have the same strain of the virus Niki has. The company injected you as well.
Sylar: Injected me? Someone did this to me?
Maya: You killed him! You killed my brother!
Sylar: (with an aggravated look on his face, Sylar turns around and shoots Maya.) Now look what you made me do.

Sylar: Where is the "heal anything" blood?
Molly: Please. (Mohinder takes it out of his bag.)
Sylar: You had it here all along? You and I have trust issues, doctor. Give it to her, first. Let me see you save her. Then if it works... I'll let you save me.

HRG: You were right, Claire, when you said it was all my fault.
Sandra: Noah!
HRG: I never meant to hurt you.

Peter: You're on the wrong side!
Nathan: What about me, Pete?
Peter: Nathan?
Nathan: Am I on the wrong side, too?

Adam: Wars, famine, disease. 400 years later, nothing has changed. When God wasn't happy with what he created, he made it rain for 40 days and 40 nights. He just washed it all away. He had the right idea, because when this virus is released, those of us who are left will be granted a second chance. And I'll be their hero.

Nathan: Peter, that day at Kirby Plaza when I carried you away, it's because I believe in you. You're my brother, Pete. I love you.

Hiro: (in Japanese) You are not God.
Adam: Really? I've lived for over 400 years. Who's to say I'm not going to live 400 more?
Hiro: (in Japanese) I should have killed you. Long ago. And I should kill you now. For my father.

Nathan: We've been used by these people. Manipulated. But it's over. It stops here. No more secrets.
Peter: So what do you wanna do?
Nathan: We take this all public. We expose them for what they are. What they've done. That they're the enemy. I wanna have a press conference.

Ando: (In Japanese) Hiro? Where have you been?
Hiro: (In Japanese) I went to face my father's killer.
Ando: (In Japanese) Well, did you find him? (Hiro nods) Did you kill him?
Hiro: (In Japanese) He can never hurt anyone ever again.

(In Aoyama Cemetery, Adam is trapped in a coffin underground, with a layer of concrete on top)

Adam: (Yelling) Let me out! Carp, Let me out! Carp! Let me out!

Sylar: That's it? Just a simple injection? (Sylar takes the blood.) I'm sure Maya will understand if I'm not here when she wakes up.

Maya: I thought... I was dead.
Mohinder: You very nearly were.
Elle: Sylar's gone. My dad's gonna kill me.
Mohinder: I doubt that very much. If you hadn't arrived, Sylar would have slaughtered us all. We owe you our lives.
Elle: Really? Cool.

Nathan: Hey, you tried to do the right thing. You always do. You trusted that people were as good as you are. But if you see yourself as a monster, Peter, this guilt is just gonna eat you up inside. Believe me, I know. (Peter smiles.) What?
Peter: Just really missed you.
Nathan: I missed you too. (Nathan and Peter hug)

Nathan: (giving a speech to a crowd of reporters in Texas) Good afternoon. Most of you have no idea who I am. My name is Nathan Petrelli and I was elected to Congress in the state of New York. It seems like a long time ago. I lost my position. I lost my brother. I lost my family. I'm sad to say that I lost my way. But while I was gone, I've had the chance to see the world through newly-humbled eyes. Witnessed amazing things, seen ordinary people among us trying their best each day to be heroes. These ordinary people... like you, like me, are capable of extraordinary things. You have no idea... how extraordinary. But there are other people; organizations who don't want you to know the truth. I myself kept secrets. But last year, something incredible happened to me... and it changed my life. At first, I was afraid. But I'm... I'm not afraid anymore. I'm here to tell you the truth. I have the abili-- (shots ring out; Nathan is hit twice in the chest and collapses)

Angela Petrelli: (tearfully watching a news report of her son's shooting as she speaks on the phone with an unknown person) I know. It was unavoidable. You do know that you've now opened Pandora's Box? (hangs up the phone)

Sylar: (after testing his restored powers by pulling a spinach can to himself) I'm back.

Season 3 (Volume 3: Villains)

The Second Coming [3.01]

Claire: Are you going to eat it?
Sylar: Eat your brain? Claire, that's disgusting.

Claire: Wait! What about me? Aren't you going to kill me?
Sylar: Poor girl. There's so much about yourself you don't even understand. Your brain is not like the others, Claire. You are not like the others. You're different. You're special. I couldn't kill you even if I wanted to. You can never die. And now, I guess...neither can I.

T.V. Reporter: Mr. Petrelli, earlier today you were about to make a statement, you had a message to deliver, are you ready to do that now?
Nathan: God is the only one with a message it’s a message of hope and urgency cause he’s not going to wait much longer. His message is a simple one: we are all connected. Our hopes, our dreams, our children’s future reflect back in each others’ eyes. We fight our own personal battles, but we know we’re not alone because only together can we make our short time on this planet mean something. Only together can we be the stewards of our own destiny. And we hold in our collective hearts one noble goal; save ourselves, save the world.

[Daphne suddenly moves even after Hiro freezes time]
Daphne: How are you doing this? Are you a speedster too?
Hiro: Speedster? No, I'm Hiro Nakamura. I stop time.
Daphne: I got news. You don't stop it completely, or we're not having this conversation.
Hiro: So you move fast?
Daphne: Not fast. I move really fast.
Hiro: Well, you stole something from me.
Daphne: You mean this? [shows stolen formula]
Hiro: Give it--
Daphne: This whole time-stopping thing, how does it work exactly? I mean, if you chase me to Bangkok, will time stay frozen here in Tokyo?
Hiro: I don't know.
Daphne: Well...Something to think about when you get back on your feet.
Hiro: But I am on my feet.
Daphne: [Daphne punches Hiro, unfreezing time] Gotta go.

The Butterfly Effect [3.02]

Angela: You don't screw with time.

Matt: Your cell. I gotta use your cell, I gotta call home.
Usutu: No service here. Should have gone with Sprint.

Sylar: (Noah shoots him six times. Sylar lies beside the wall, while the bullets all get ejected from his body.) Ouch. I got that from your Claire
Noah: You son of a bitch!

Sylar: You are not my mother
Angela: But I am dear. I am.

Noah: They're villains, Claire.

Future Peter: Where is he?! Where'd they go?
Angela: Escaped.
Future Peter: No. That's not possible. That never happened.
Angela: It's the butterfly effect, Peter. Just like I told you.
Future Peter: I put him here to keep him safe. I put him in the body of the guy in THAT CELL. RIGHT THERE!!
Angela: Jesse? You're gonna figure out where my son is and you are gonna bring him back here. You understand me?

[ Future Peter walks off]

Angela: AND GO TO HELL BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM!

One of Us, One of Them [3.03]

Sylar:[After impersonating an FBI agent and ordering some local cops around, including an order for decaf coffee] You drink decaf, right Noah?

Hiro: What are you doing?
Ando: I'm being awesome!

Hiro: Nemesis!
Daphne: Stop calling me that. My name is Daphne.

Daphne: There's supposed to be some sort of exchange going down at this theater and I'm waiting to intercept
Hiro: You're telling us your plan? What kind of overconfident nemesis are you?
Daphne: You're 0 for 2 against me, pikachu.That's just regular confidence.
Hiro: Pikachu? We will find the other half of the formula before you and we will save the world.
Daphne: Yeah. Good luck with that.

Tracy: You called me Niki Sanders yesterday. Then...a reporter shows me this. [Shows video of Jessica and Nathan]Last year at the Corinthian hotel in Las Vegas. Just tell me who the hell she is.
Nathan: I still kinda think that's you. I'm just waiting for this all to make sense.
Tracy: It's not me. Look, I'm trying to find her. Talk to her. All I can get is an address in New Orleans. Tell me what you know about her.
Nathan: You're really not Niki Sanders?
Tracy: I need to go to New Orleans.

Daphne: Domo arigato. That's all the Japanese I know.

Meredith: All right, we'll start at the beginning. Survival.
Claire: I've already mastered survival. I need to learn how to fight.
Meredith: There are some things you can't fight, Claire. [manifests her power and begins heating up the metal box]

[Meredith is using her power to use up all the oxygen in the metal box that she and Claire are in]
Claire: What's this supposed to prove? I've walked through fire before and I haven't gotten burned.
Meredith: You've never been burned?
Claire: I'm indestructible. I can't feel pain.
Meredith: You ever suffocate? 'Cause I would imagine the air is getting pretty thin in here.
Claire: Why are you doing this?
Meredith: Why do you wanna stop bad guys?
Claire: I told you. To help people.
Meredith: That's what you keep saying. But I don't believe you. Do you know what waterboarding is, Claire?
Claire: No.
Meredith: It's a method of torture. You're not drowning but your body tells your mind that you are. You think you're gonna die. Trapped, you panic. Trapped. Does that remind you of anything?
Claire: Stop it! Turn it off!
Meredith: Is this how it was with Sylar, huh? You're indestructible but you couldn't get away, right? Well, that must have made you feel trapped. Helpless.
Claire: Please stop! I can't--
Meredith: Why do you wanna stop bad guys?
Claire: To help people!
Meredith: I don't believe you. You tell me why!
Claire: To hurt him, okay! To hurt him for what he did! Like he hurt me!

Tracy: Do you know me?
Dr. Zimmerman: Know you? I created you.

Sandra: School just called. Claire didn't show up today. You know anything about that?
Meredith: Oh, I'm sorry. I just thought that since--
Sandra: You don't get to do that - think about Claire. That's me. Not you. I'm the one who's been here. Changed her diapers, checked her spelling. Me, not you.
Meredith: Sandra, I'm not trying to--
Sandra: Do you think this is a game? She just got attacked. Hurt.
Meredith: Yeah, that's right and she's looking to push back. And there's nothing you can do stop that. In fact, smothering her, that's the best way to drive her away real quick.
Sandra: Don't you ever assume to know anything about me and my daughter.
Meredith: I just did what I thought was best to keep her here. Safe.

Sylar:[While telekineticly choking Jessie, whose power is Sound manipulation (expressed through voice)] Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I Am Become Death [3.04]

Future Peter: I've stepped on too many butterflies.

(Hiro and Ando have just dug Adam Monroe out of his grave)
Adam: (grabs Hiro's neck) Hiro, you son of a bi- (episode ends)

Angels and Monsters [3.05]

Hiro: We are searching for a formula that...
Adam: A formula? I knew it'd come back to bite them in the ass one day. Even I told them to destroy it.
Ando: So you know who would steal it?
Adam: Maybe... If I tell you, what's in it for me?
Hiro: When we have finished our mission, I promise to put you in a most spacious cell.
Ando: With a window!
Hiro: And a vent.
Adam: Forget it.
Hiro: Okay, back you go (Squeezes eyes to bend time)
Adam: Wait! (frustrated) You little Japanese Nazi!

Nathan: If God didn't give us these powers, then who did?
Tracy: A doctor in Reseda, California.

Peter: I know exactly what I am doing. What other secrets are you hiding from me mother? TELL ME YOUR SECRETS! Or I'll rip open your head and I'll take them out myself.

Hiro: We are badasses now.
Ando: Yes, we are very badass.

Sandra:Claire! Thank God. I was so worried. Are you okay? Because if you are, you are so grounded!

Stephen Canfield: I won't be a monster!

Dying of the Light [3.06]

Hiro: Now you know what it's like to be killed by your best friend.
Ando: Okay, now we're even.

Matt: High five, turtle

Peter:[To Sylar]You're too weak to stop me. [He punches him and Sylar falls to the floor.] I know how it feels now. [He lands another blow.] And with all this power- [Another punch. He bends down and pulls Sylar's face close to his so their noses touch.] -I'm the most special! [He knocks Sylar out.]

Arthur: The bad guys are here.

Arthur: You don't have your abilities anymore, Peter...because I have them now.

Eris Quod Sum [3.07]

Lyle: The bitch is back. (reference to Veronica Mars finale.)

Peter: I'm gonna make you pay for everything you've ever done!!!
Arthur: Son... until you change that attitude... you're grounded!

Mohinder: What could possibly drive a father to put his children through such grief?
Arthur: Have you ever met their mother?

Villains [3.08]

Linderman: So, Nathan, are the rumors true?
Nathan: Excuse me?
Linderman: I heard your office is about to launch a full-scale investigation into all things Linderman. Care to comment?
Nathan: I’d shave my wrists. Handcuffs chafe.

Meredith: They're trickin' you because you're dumb! You know what Daddy used to say; "God gave you a big sister instead of a brain".

Arthur: You're my wife, Angela. I know you like I know my own heart.
Angela: Really? So what am I gonna do now? Am I gonna kiss you, or am I gonna kill you?

Mohinder: A child is born to innocence. A child is drawn towards good. Why then do so many among us go so horribly wrong? What makes some walk the path of darkness while others choose the light? Is it will, is it destiny? Can we ever hope to understand the force that shapes the soul? To fight evil, one must know evil. One must journey back through time and find that fork in the road, where heroes turn one way and villains turn another.

It's Coming [3.09]

Arthur: It's Coming

Sylar: Empathy? What makes you think I'm capable of that?

The Eclipse, Part 1 [3.10]

Mohinder: There is a moment in every war where everything changes. A moment when the road bends. Alliances and battle lines shift. And the rules of engagement are rewritten. Moments like these can change the nature of the battle, and turn the tide for either side. So we do what we can to understand them. To be ready for change, we steady our hearts, curb our fears, muster our forces, and look for signs in the stars. But these moments, these game changes, remain a mystery. Destiny's invisible hand, moving pieces on a chessboard. No matter how much we prepare for them - how much we resist the change, anticipate the moment, fight the inevitable outcome - in the end, we are never truly ready when it strikes.
Elle: We can't take what we want anymore.
Sylar: [Stares at Elle hungrily.] Says who?

[The pair dramatically kiss as the camera pans out to reveal a sniper.]

The Eclipse, Part 2 [3.11]

Our Father [3.12]

Sylar: [Whilst attacking Sue Landers; he is about to slice her head open.] Don't worry. It won't hurt a bit. [Sue uses her ability to see he is lying. He shrugs.] Got me. That's a lie.
[He kills Sue and leans over her on the floor.]
'Sylar:I almost forgot how good this feels...
[Sue's friends burst into her office with balloons and gifts.]
Friends: Happy Birthday!
[They see Sylar kneeling on the floor by Sue's corpse, covered in blood. He turns to them.]
Sylar: Cake!


[We later see Sylar enter an elevator. He is covered in blood; his arms, his shirt are both soaked. The office worker looks at him with bulging eyes, and Sylar turns to him.]
Sylar: Something wrong?
Worker: ...No. No. Not at all. [He shifts away slowly. Sylar nods.]
Sylar: Huh. It does kind of tingle.


[Peter has a gun levelled at Arthur, and The Haitian is struggling to hold his power back while he waits for Peter to kill him.]
Arthur: That's your problem son. Too much thinking not enough action. How could you be my son-
[Arthur uses telekinesis to slash a cut in Peter's cheek; Peter fires; the bullet is left hovering in mid-air. They all turn to see Sylar enter the room.]

Dual [3.13]

Sylar: [opening voiceover]] On the sixth day, God created Man in His own image, now it's up to us to figure it all out. Right...wrong...good...evil...in each of us is the capacity to decide what drives our actions. So what is it, then, that makes some choose selflessness, the need to devote oneself to something greater, while others know only self-interest? Isolating themselves in a world of their own making? Some seek love, even if only unrequited, while others are driven by fear and betrayal. There are those who see their choices as dark proof of God's absence while others follow a path of noble destiny. But in the end, good, evil, right or wrong...what we choose is never what we really need. For that is the ultimate cosmic joke, the real gift that God has left behind.

Flint: I don't give a rat's ass about your brother. Or you.

Mohinder Suresh: [ending voiceover] There is good, and there is evil. Right, and wrong. Heroes and villains. And if we are blessed with wisdom, then there are glimpses between the cracks of each where light streams through. We wait in silence for these times, when sense can be made. When meaningless existence comes into focus, and our purpose presents itself. And if we have the strength to be honest, and what we find there, staring back at us, is our own reflection. Bearing witness to the duality of life. And each one of us is capable of both the dark, and the light.. the good and evil, of either, of all. And destiny, while marching ever in our direction can be rerouted by the choices we make. By the love we hold on to, and the promises we keep.

Season 3 (Volume 4: Fugitives)

A Clear and Present Danger [3.14]

Peter: What advice could I give you besides 'kiss my ass,' Nathan?

Trust and Blood [3.15]

Rebel: There is hope. You can still fight back.

Sylar: If that is a coincidence, God is improving His sense of humor.

Building 26 [3.16]

Sylar: Okay,technically,I'm a serial killer.

Cold Wars [3.17]

Noah: [to Angela] You know me. I've always been comfortable with morally gray.

Nathan: I thought you'd enjoy the extra time with your family.
HRG: There's only so many crossword puzzles I can do.

Exposed [3.18]

Claire: This is my new boyfriend, Alex.
Sandra: And why is he hiding in your closet.
Claire: We're...
Claire: Are you really going to make me say this out loud?
Sandra: Definitely.
Claire: We're having sex. I know, it was wrong, and we're so sorry.
Alex: [Shocked] Wha--?! Ma'am, I never touched your daughter!

[Claire glares at him. He shrugs.]


Doyle: [to Claire] Hey, Barbie.

Shades of Grey [3.19]

Mohinder : [ending voiceover] Generations unfold — father to son, mother to daughter. Where one leaves off, the other follows, destined to repeat each other's mistakes, each other's triumphs. For how do we see the world if not through their lens? The same fears, the same desires? Do we see them as an example to follow, or as a warning of what to avoid? Choosing to live as they have, simply because it's what we know, or driven to create one's own identity? And what happens when we find them to be a disappointment? Can we replace them? Our mothers, our fathers? Or will destiny find a way to drive us back? Back to the familiar comforts of home?

Cold Snap [3.20]

Tracy: This is a breezy 68 degrees, and I've worked up one hell of a cold snap.

Millie: [to Angela] You look like you were mugged and the first thing they took was your dignity.

Daphne: Fly me to the moon..

Daphne: I'm not your surrogate Janice.

Into Asylum [3.21]

Peter: I asked to be extraordinary.. and I promised to make the world a better place so when I got my chance I lived up to my end of the bargain. For what? I'm running for my life, a lot of people are running for their lives, they're hurt and they're dying and I can't help them. Do you even care what you put people through? When they kneel here before you and they ask for help do you even listen? And I'm tired of fighting and I'm angry. I'm angry at my father, Nathan, at my mother, at you. We had a deal.. I think its about time you lived up to your end. Please just.. show up.

Angela: I'm afraid that unconditional love isn't really love at all.

Angela: I've tried to warn everyone but no one would listen. Why would they? Why should they? I was Cassandra screaming that the sky was falling but when they looked up there wasn't a cloud in sight. Then I did it with lies and with manipulation and betrayal. And it cost me EVERYTHING: My friends, my husband, my boys. But Peter, it's the price I chose to save the world.

Claire: Over the years, I couldn't help but think about my real dad. Who you were, what you looked like, your job, and then I met you. And you were more amazing than anyone than I could ever imagined.
Nathan: You know that's just a fantasy.
Claire: No! It doesn't have to be. You could do anything you want. You can fly.
Nathan: Claire...
Claire: You were supposed to be superman.

Turn and Face the Strange [3.22]

Noah: How did you think it was going to end?

Hiro: Matt Parkman, meet Matt Parkman.

Nathan: When your grandmother has a dream it's a good idea to pay attention.

Angela: And to prepare for the future, you have to understand the past. You want the answers? Then you'll have to dig.

Mohinder: It is our nature to protect our children. For each generation to pass on their cautionary tales to the next. So it is with the myth of Icarus, the legend of a boy who fashioned wings from feathers and wax, daring to fly into the heavens. His father was fearful and warned Icarus to be careful, begging him not tempt to fate by flying too close to the sun. But in the end, the boy couldn't resist. His waxen wings melted from the sun's rays. And he plunged to his death.

1961 [3.23]

Angela: I have socks for you.
Alice: Eh?
Angela: Since that night, whenever I feel lost... whenever I don't know what to do.. I steal socks for you. To remind myself there are simple ways to protect the ones we love. You don't ever have to be cold again.

Angela: Say goodnight Alice.
Alice: Goodnight Alice

I Am Sylar [3.24]

Danko: Maybe you should just stay as Agent Taub for a while.
Sylar: Agent Taub's a nothing. I don't like being a nothing.

Danko: Understanding how things work. Who'd you kill to get that power?
Sylar: That's the only one that was ever truly mine.

Mohinder: For every being cursed with self awareness, there remains the unanswerable question, "Who am I?" We struggle to find meaningful connections to one another. We are the caring friend, the loving father, the doting mother, the protected child. We fight and we love in the hope that somehow, together, we can understand our significance in the universe. But in the end, no one can share our burden. Each of us alone, must ask the question, "Who am I? What does it mean to be alive? And in the vast infinity of time, how do I matter?"

An Invisible Thread [3.25]

Mohinder: There are nearly seven billion people on this planet. Each one unique. Different. What are the chances of that? And why? Is it simply biology, physiology that determines this diversity? A collections of thoughts, memories, experiences that carve out our own special place? Or is it something more than this? Perhaps there's a master plan that drives the randomness of creation. Something unknowable that dwells in the soul, and presents each one of us with a unique set of challenges that will help us discover who we really are.
Sylar: You'll get bored, after like a hundred years of trying to off me, watching all your loved ones drop like flies. You may eventually come to forgive me. Maybe you'll even love me.
Claire: I'll keep trying to kill you for the rest of my life.
Sylar: Well, everybody needs a hobby.

Sylar: [Shapeshifted] You really did a great job, sir. [He reaches to shake the President's hand. They touch, and Sylar's face morphes between many people. The handshake turns into a firm grip and a needle is thrust into Sylar's neck as Peter reveals himself and pulls their faces close.]
Peter: Bet you didn't think I took that one from you.

[Sylar passes out in the back seat of the President's limo]


Sylar: Everyone dies, well, almost everyone. Papa Petrelli, Mama Bennet, Mr. Muggles... what's your brother's name again? Larry?
Claire: Lyle.
Sylar: Right... he's gonna die too.

Claire: You can either listen to me now...or I'll tell you after you shoot me.

Mohinder: [ending voiceover] We are all connected. Joined together by an invisible thread, infinite in its potential and fragile in its design. Yet while connected, we are also merely individuals. Empty vessels to be filled with infinite possibilities. An assortment of thoughts, beliefs. A collection of disjointed memories and experiences. Can I be me without this? Can you be you? And if this invisible thread that holds us together were to sever, to cease, what then? What would become of billions of lone, disconnected souls? Therein lies the great quest of our lives. To find. To connect. To hold on. For when our hearts are pure, and our thoughts in line, we are all truly one. Capable of repairing our fragile world, and creating a universe of infinite possibilities.

Season 4 (Volume 5: Redemption)

Orientation [4.01a]

Samuel: My brother Joseph and I have had two families. The first one... well let's just say it didn't work out too well. But over the years, we made ourselves a new one. And it was to this family, all of you, that his heart really belonged. You see, a family is something that Joseph and I needed. It offers protection from the outside world. A world that never understood or appreciated what makes us different. There are others like us out there, in the shadows, in the light. Each grasping for a meaning in a world that won't accept them for who they really are. They, like us are blessed, gifted with extraordinary abilities. And they like us struggle with finding their place in an ordinary world. Haunted by their past from those who would harm them and keep them from their destiny. Every one of them deserves a chance to be who they really are. But to what end? For what purpose? Here in this place, we offer salvation. We offer hope, we offer redemption. And one by one, they will come to our side, to our family. And they will find their way home. And all who have gathered, will be strong. And all who have gathered, will stand in unison. I say it's time we found our way back home again. Find your way home, brother.

Noah: And here I was thinking that I'd be the one that got away
Tracy: No. You're just number five.
Noah: Five's my lucky number. Well, it used to be. Is it still lucky?
Tracy: I haven't decided yet.

Claire: I don't wanna be anyone other than me. I just wanna be Claire Bennet, daughter of Noah Bennet.

Parkman: I'm out.
Angela: Theres no such thing as out detective. Not for people like us.

Jump, Push, Fall [4.01b]

Noah: It's not healthy to live alone, Peter. No connections to anybody. It's a dead end. Trust me, I'm Exhibit A. For years, I put my job ahead of my family, and now my kids are off at school and I'm eating cereal for dinner and a strange man is answering my wife's phone

Sylar: Hi. My name is Sylar. It's been about six weeks or so since I've seen my body, and I want it back.

Ink [4.02]

Sylar: Not as easy to ignore me as you thought. It's because I ooze charm.

Acceptance [4.03]

Claire: You're not fine living off cereal and Japanese takeout.
Noah: Well, that is a good point. Tonight I order Italian.
Claire: Okay, say, you're at the interview. And I'm the interviewer and you're the interviewee.
Noah: Oh, are we really...
Claire: Tell me, Mr. Bennet, what do you think your greatest strength as a salesman is?
Noah: Well, if they won't buy from me, I can always just shoot them.

"Nathan": Every time there's a secret buried someplace, I find you with a shovel behind your back.
Angela: You should write Mother's Day cards.

Claire: Life changes. We all change. Maybe you have to remember who you were to figure out who you want to be.
Noah: Why do I suddenly feel like your the parent and I'm the kid?
Claire: We'll take turns.

Hiro: Find something you like to do. Then it doesnt feel like work.
Hiro: Life is a gift, precious and short, not [to be] wasted by jumping off a roof.
Hiro: Don't keep secrets. Not from the ones you love. Especially family members.

Noah: Nice seeing you here. Am I that predictable?
Tracy: You live upstairs.

Noah: Life changes Tracy. We all have to change with it. Maybe you just cant go home again. Maybe you have to remember who you were to figure out who you want to be.

Hiro: I have so many stories to share with you, Kimiko. I just hope I have time to tell you them all.
