Penny 23: You’re not a guardian of space time. You’re a junkie.
Elaphus: I wasn’t lying.
Plum: You used the signal to find us, so you can take what we have to use for yourself.
Elaphus: I wasn’t lying about what I do. Time travelers are so rare, but you spend your life chasing them to unflap every butterfly wing, it feels like they’re everywhere. I’m just trying to stop idiots from destroying the entire universe.
Penny 23: Oh, it’s interesting that idiots include everyone except you.
Elaphus: Tell me most people can be trusted. Tell me more power makes people better, no. I thought so. I have been keeping this whole thing together by myself forever.
Plum: You didn’t think you could ask me for help?
Elaphus: Oh, I tried a few times with a few of you when I was your age. I believed in people.
Plum: You mean back before you thought you were better than anyone else.
Elaphus: You can’t understand unless you’ve seen what I have and I wouldn’t wish that on the devil. It’s why I put you here. Maybe, one day you’ll know enough to thank me.

The Magicians Season 5 Episode 10 Quotes

Kady: We’re gonna get those pricks for this.
Alice: I don’t know Kady. Maybe we should just walk away.
Kady: Look, you can walk away, but I’m not done ‘til I cut that son of a bitch’s balls off. I owe them that for tying me up, and I owe them triple for what they did to you. You can sit it out, OK.
Alice: Um no, we’re in this together.
Fen: Oh, this is so beautiful. You friendship really is the most underrated form of love. I’m sorry. I’m just extra emotional with the assassination going sideways, and then Josh, Eliot, and Julia not making it back. Not to mention all that crazy stuff Plover told us, it’s just really overwhelming. So uh, what have you guys been up to?

Elaphus: I want you to stop time traveling.
Penny 23: Are you like the god of time or something?
Elaphus: Hardly. I’m a time traveler like young Plum here. I have been monitoring you.
Plum: And now you’re keeping us prisoner?
Elaphus: ‘This one will be smart,’ I thought, ‘Cautious.’ Then you had to risk altering the future to save some young pervert.
Penny 23: Is this the part where you draw us little diagrams about screwing up the flow of time or whatever?
Elaphus: Nice thing about the 21st century, you’ve all seen ‘Looper,’ so I can get to the point. We are here because though I would rather be making lamps, I am forced to focus on the most important task there is: protecting the integrity of space-time, which you threaten. I’d have hoped you’d waste your time on something useful, try to kill Hitler at least.
Plum: I was getting to it.
