Clary: Did you miss me?
Jonathan: I told you I did.
Clary: Next time you want to send a message like that ... use email.
Jonathan: I’ll admit it was a little dramatic. It got your attention, didn’t it?
Clary: Being back at the Institute ... having to play Jace’s virginal little girl again ... it got real old real fast. I missed our life together.
Jordan: Where’s your phone?
[Maia checks her phone]
Maia: No service.
Jordan: Where’s Simon? He’s going to panic if he doesn’t hear from you.
Maia: I don’t think so. We broke up.
Jordan: Alright, we just have to sit tight. Someone will come for us eventually.
Maia: Who?! My whole pack just got slaughtered, Luke stepped down, and the Jade Wolf is freaking closed on Mondays.
[Maia pounds on the pantry door]
Maia: Hello! Is anybody out there?! Hello?!?!
Jordan: I forgot you’re claustrophobic.
Maia: I swear I’m going to wolf out if we don’t get out of here.
Clary: You never told me you knew how to ice skate.
Jace: Well, I don’t ... yet. I was kinda hoping you could show me how it’s done.
Clary: It’s been a while since I’ve been on the ice. What gave you this idea?
Jace: Well, there’s a photo on your dresser of you and your mom. You’re at Rockefeller Center and you look really happy in your little skate costume. I knew it was something I had to do for you.
Clary: That’s so thoughtful.
Magnus: I’ve had many, many happy memories in this apartment. But, at the end of the day, it’s just a thing. But my magic, it makes me feel alive. Yes, I can do fabulous tricks, jet around the world, and help the people I love, but more than that, magic connects me to ... everything around me. Without magic, I feel like a stranger. The world keeps on going, and it’s like I’m not a part of it. It’s like suddenly I don’t matter.
Alec: Magus, of course, you matter!
Magnus: I know. I know, Alexander. Everyone does, but without magic, I can’t feel it. This apartment is not important; I have you and I have my magic. Truly that is enough.
Isabelle: Thanks again for getting us in.
Meliorn: It’s my pleasure. Always happy to be of service to you and your ... boyfriend?
Simon: We’re just friends.
Isabelle: Good friends.
Meliorn: In that case, we should hang out again sometime. Bring your friend if you like.
[Stunned silence between Izzy and Simon]
Simon: It’s pretty impressive how popular you are with your exes.
Isabelle: Less impressive how quickly they become my exes.
Simon: You just haven’t met the right guy yet.
Shopkeeper: You think I want change? The last thing I need is a Morgenstern using that sword and ripping open the portals of hell.
Jonathan: So, you won’t help me? Okay, I guess if I won’t have your loyalty, I’ll have your fear.
[Jonathan’s eyes change to black]
Jonathan: Where is the sword?
Shopkeeper: Gone. I already sold it.
Jonathan: To who?
Shopkeeper: To “whom”?
[Jonathan slices his throat]
Jonathan: Guess I’ll have to find it out on my own.
Jonathan: That was incredible.
Clary: You killed a man, Jonathan. A Shadowhunter.
Jonathan: And I did it for you. Seeing him in your arms like that ... so vulnerable. It wasn’t like any kill I’d done before. Clary, it felt so good! You make me good!
Clary: That’s not what good is, Jonathan. Killing like that should never feel good!
Magnus: [Alec in a headlock] Oh, I forgot to tell you, I trained with a grand master in Supenmiayah
Alec: Is that where you got your black belt in namedropping?
Magnus: Oh, low blow.
[Magnus puts Alec in arm lock]
Alec: You deserved it.
[Alec flips him around]
Alec: I didn’t know this was supposed to be a competition.
Magnus: Oh, am I just supposed to let you win?
[The two break free and stand up]
Alec: We’re supposed to be working.
Magnus: You’re so cute when you’re serious.
Alec: I told you not to flirt with me.
[Alec presses him to a pillar and they make out]
Alec: Hold that thought. Bedroom...
[They leave the training room]
Clary: Jonathan, if you’re looking for pity, you’re wasting your breath.
Jonathan: I’m not looking for pity, just understanding. I can’t deny the things I’ve done, but it’s behind me now. I can change. I want to change because whatever good exists inside of you, at least some of that has to be inside of me too. Somewhere. I intend to prove that to you.
Magnus: [Recoils from touching eye] Ah! I don’t know how people do this every day?! It’s taken me an eternity to make myself half-way presentable.
Alec: I don’t know why you think you need it. You’re beautiful the way you are.
[Magnus kisses him and gets up]
Magnus: Thank you, but it’s not about beauty. A tiger has stripes. I have eyeliner.
Isabelle: The stalker vampire Heidi ... she made Simon feed on Becky in front of their mom.
Maia: Oh my God.
Isabelle: Luckily, Becky is okay, but his mom couldn’t handle it. He had to encanto her to make her believe that he was dead. Simon had to say goodbye to his mom forever.
Maia: I had no idea.
Isabelle: How could you? You weren’t here.
Maia: Me leaving had nothing to do with Simon. I just needed to be alone. Have you ever felt like that? You just needed to get away from it all?
Isabelle: I have. I guess when times get tough; some people need to be alone. And others need to be around other people. I’m more like that, and I think Simon is too.
Rafael: I was never able to find him myself, but there’s a legend of a vampire who lives in hiding in the sewers of New York. They say he’s the oldest vampire in the city. Maybe even in the world? No one I’ve met has been able to see his face. If there’s someone who knows of these kinds of things, it would be him.
Simon: How do you know if this guy actually exists?
Rafael: Aren’t all the legends true?
