Khalil: Don’t cry.
Jennifer: I thought you were dead.
Khalil: Come on, Jenn. You know you can’t get rid of me that easily.
[They hug and kiss]
Jennifer: I love you.
Khalil: I love you too.
Jennifer: Don’t scare me like that, please. Don’t leave me out here.
Khalil: I got you. It’s okay.
Gambi: Giselle Cutter. Assassin, tracker, world-class martial artist, mercenary for hire.
Jefferson: Is she a meta?
Gambi: There are rumors. People have had her lined up point blank and they’ve missed.
Anissa: She’s bulletproof?!
Gambi: Bullets never hit her. And it’s also been said that she can literally throw knives around corners; that says to me low-level telekinetic.
Khalil: I remember when I first saw you.
Jennifer: Are you seriously getting all corny on me right now?
Khalil: No. No, this is a memory I’ll keep for myself. But, I knew then that you were special.
Jennifer: Well, I remember all the girls at Garfield going on and on about “Khalil this” and “Khalil that.” And I’m like, “What the hell is the big deal? Who is this Khalil?!” And then I saw you standing at your locked, and I can’t lie the first thing that popped into my head was, “Well, damn!”
Tobias: Here, I’ve saved you the best seat of the house.
[Todd sits down in between two women and they touch him]
Todd: Oh... oh...
Tobias: Now, if these women aren’t to your liking, I can get you others. Or, if you prefer men?
Todd: No, no, but thank you. I actually prefer to not be touched. That would be my preference.
Tobias: Ladies, you heard the man. Go.
[The ladies get up and leave]
Tobias: This is what they call the good life, Todd. And you better get used to it because that old life doesn’t exist anymore.
Jennifer: What the hell, Khalil?!
Khalil: We needed the money.
Jennifer: You said we were making a quick stop, not walking into a damn shootout.
Khalil: Tobias put a reward on my head. Look, I didn’t know. I’m sorry. I’m just trying to keep you from involved.
Jennifer: My involvement? I just had to use my powers in public. I’d say at this point I’m pretty damn involved.
Tobias: Late night. Perhaps what you need is a good read? Always puts me right to sleep.
[He lifts up a book]
Tobias: Moby Dick. One of my favorites.
Nichelle: I guess you’re here to put me to sleep?
Tobias: Actually, I have a strict “No Mama” rule. I believe a man has to have principles.
Khalil: Look, I’m sorry. Okay, I shouldn’t have yelled at you before.
Jennifer: Yeah, you should be sorry. What the hell was that?
Khalil: I don’t know. Something just came over me, okay? Jenn, the things Tobias did to me ... hitting me ... burning me ... I just didn’t want him to find us. I snapped.
Jennifer: Yeah, well you snap at me like that again, then Tobias is gonna be the last person you’ll have to worry about. I will light your a** up. You need to remember that.
Anissa: Are you blaming this one me?
Jefferson: No, but if you had told us, we would have ...
Anissa: Wow! Okay, did you ever stop and think about why she was talking to Khalil in the first place? Hmmm? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that, I don’t know, you and Mom never let her out of the house, that you treated her like she was some kind of prisoner?
Jefferson: Wait, we didn’t treat her like a prisoner. We were trying to protect her.
Anissa: No, you were trying to control her! You act like she was some kind of freak or a monster. All your rules, your quotes, and all your focus was too much, Dad! Too damn much! You drove her away, just like you did me.
[She slams the door behind her]
Perenna: Jennifer’s powers are extraordinary, and I don’t say that lightly.
Lynn: She’s just like her father.
Perenna: No. Jennifer’s powers are beyond anything any of us have seen. Teaching her to control them has been both a joy and a challenge because I’ve never worked with anyone with gifts like that. Which is why I must caution you.
Lynn: What are you saying?
Perenna: I understand you’re upset and I understand you want your daughter back, but you must be very careful. If you push her further away and she retreats with her powers, with no real support system and no guidance, there will be consequences for us all.
Khalil: You like Caviar?
Khalil: Tobias told me, “You never forget the first time you can afford to eat Caviar.” Jen, you deserve a guy that can give you that.
Jennifer: Okay, where is all this coming from?
Khalil: Actions have consequences.
Jennifer: What are you talking about? You’re really starting to scare me.
[Tobias calls Khalil, but he screens the call]
Khalil: He’s not going to stop. Not until I kill Reverend Holt...or until he kills me. But I can’t, I don’t want to be like him.
Jennifer: Then don’t be.
Looker: Wake up!
[She taps Jefferson awake]
Looker: I need to know where the other baby is. Hmmm? You have to admit the irony is amazing. You getting electrocuted.
[They shock him and turn it off]
Looker: Where’s the baby?
[Looker’s connection power manifests]
Looker: The baby ... I can sense her. Let’s go! Flip the switch again; leave on it on until he dies.
Anissa: Are you okay?
Jefferson: Let’s just say, someone clearly drew a line in the sand.
Anissa: Well, maybe you should turn back?
Jefferson: No. What about the baby?
Anissa: You are always telling me to be strategic and not stubborn. Now I’m telling you, you are not safe going after them alone.
