Black Lightning Quotes
Lady Eve: Well, well, well. I thought I saw you when I was in Resurrection, but I assumed I was dreaming. Now you’re back on top in Freeland.
Lala: I like this little hustle that you’ve got going here.
Lady Eve: Let me guess, you want a piece?
Lala: Nah, I’m taking the whole thing. As of right now, you work for me.
Lady Eve: Ain’t gonna happen.
Lala: I know where Lazarus’ creepy a** stay. If I smoke both of y’all, there ain’t no coming back for you. Be careful writing checks with your mouth that you’re a** can’t cash.
Lady Eve: Honey, you’d be surprised at what this a** can do. Now I’d appreciate it if you’d leave and take the 40 hitters you have waiting outside to leave with you.
Grace: How could you not like puzzles?
Anissa: I’m just saying, even as a kid, puzzles completely puzzled me.
Grace: Haha, funny pun.
Lynn: If this meta-booster works, I can temporarily augment normal cells transferred to a particular metahuman profile.
Sergeant Grayle: That’s unbelievable! Everyone can have powers.
Lynn: Temporarily. If it works, I can sneak Tobias out, but I have to test it out on myself to be certain.
Sergeant Grayle: No. You’re too important. What if something goes wrong? I’ll do it.
Jefferson: So, you feel like this is our fault?
Jennifer: No, I don’t. But, they’re growing everyday and it’s painful. I love you and Mom, but you made me feel like some sort of freak who had to be locked up all the time. And Odell, he made me feel special. I know this sounds crazy, but he set me free in ways I never could’ve imaged. He took me to space, Dad. I’ve been to space!
T.C.: Black Lightning! Thunder! Oh, man!
Gambi: You shouldn’t be in here.
T.C.: Your system wanted to show it to me.
Gambi: It likes you better than me.
T.C.: No. Nah uh. It loves you.
Anissa: I need to lead this. Black Lightning is not the face of this resistance.
Jefferson: Who said it was?
Anissa: You did. The moment you came in and just took over. Now, I know you’ve done this a million times, but I am running this.
Jefferson: I didn’t just take over. Henderson asked for my advice and I gave it.
Anissa: Well, I have everything under control until you came in with your “male privilege” and pushed me aside.
Jefferson: Male privilege? What are you talking about? I’m your father. This isn’t about you.
Anissa: Yes, this is about me.
Jefferson: No! If you get this wrong, people die.
Anissa: Yes, Dad, I know that! And I also know that this is hard for you but I’m so much more than just your daughter and Thunder, and you need to see that. I am a leader and I can handle myself.
Lynn: My side effects are increasing. Hallucinations, agitations, sweats, dry mouth. I’m going to tweak the dosage and see…
[Lynn drops the vials and it breaks]
Lynn: No! Dammit! Look what you made me do, little girl! That was all I had! That was all I had!!! [Sobbing]
Jefferson: This is going to be hard to believe. Jenn and I were in alternate dimensions.
Gambi: What? How?! [Laughs] When?
Jefferson: We just got back.
Gambi: I have no memory of you being gone.
Jefferson: Right, that’s because there’s no longer any multi-dimensions. Each world, each dimension was wiped out one-by-one until there was nothing left. And then one world, one dimension, was created. We don’t have time to get into this right now because Jenn wants to kill Odell.
Black Lightning: We ain’t leaving.
Commander Williams: Fine. Then just die!
[They shoot electricity at each other]
Commander: Williams: You don’t want to dance with me. I have your powers and the finest tactical training on earth.
Black Lightning: Yeah, right. The thing is you have a lot of electricity coursing through your nervous system right now. I’ve got this suit to protect me. You don’t, Meta!
Commander Williams: I see your point.
[Commander Williams collapses]
I think Thunder would go better with Black Lightning. Don’t you?Gambi
Brandon: I’ve been looking for Dr. Jace ever since.
Jennifer: And now you’ve come to Freeland to kill her?
Brandon: Probably sound like a terrible person, huh?
Jennifer: No, actually, I get it.
Brandon: You do?
Jennifer: Yeah, look, when Khalil was murdered, all I could think about was revenge. I wanted to kill the person who did that to him; make them suffer the way he suffered. And to be honest, I still do.
Tobias: Don’t be naïve, Dr. Stewart. You know exactly what the ASA is gonna do with those Metas once you’ve stabilized them. Just look at the roster you gave me: super strength, accelerated healing, and my favorite, camouflage. Seem like weapons to me.
Lynn: I’ve heard it all before.
Tobias: Oh, really? From whom? Wait … you don’t mean Black Lightning? How interesting. Guess he is smarter than I thought.
