Clary: Alec's right, I'm not one of you. I'm just some girl from Brooklyn who went out to celebrate her birthday and came back with a present she never wanted...and can't return. Isabelle: You don't want to return that present. It's a blessing. Clary: Not for me. I just...I want to feel normal again, Isabelle. I want my life back. Isabelle: I'm sure, but don't you get it? You have a target on your back. The Institute is the safest place for you. You have a new life now, you have me, and that's not going to change.
