Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 15: "The Book of the Apocalypse: Chapter One: The Alpha" Quotes
Anissa: Look, Gambi said something about a shapeshifter; someone who could be a danger to Grace. Jenn, I think the shapeshifter WAS Grace. Grace is a Meta, and she ran because she thought I would reject her. If I’d just told her who I was then...
Jennifer: Find her. Screw the rules, Anissa! Find her and tell her who you are.
Dr. Jace: I think that Cutter is a little too possessive. A long time ago, I was too proud to retreat and I ended up indentured to a rogue nation and then the worse people in the US government. I lost everything because I didn’t have the good sense to stop.
Tobias: That sucks for you.
Dr. Jace: I’m smarter than you are. It’s not an insult, it’s a fact. I’m smarter than virtually everyone I met. It’s annoying, but I’ve learned to live with it. What I lack is your genius for survival! I think we’d make a great team. I can kill people with a whisk, but my big brain can solve a whole lot of problems.
Tobias: So far, I’m not impressed. And I actually appreciate Cutter’s possessiveness.
[He walks away]
Jennifer: Do you ever get a static problem?
Jefferson: You mean like with the electricity?
Jennifer: Good! I don’t want the powers to mess up my hair.
Lynn: Your father wants to protect you. It’s a good thing.
Jefferson: But I need to be able to trust you. Okay, I need to know that we’re all rowing in the same direction. So, I’ve come up with a code. Three rules that we will follow. Rule Number #1: We don’t tell anybody who we are.
Anissa: Hmmm... well, that’s for you two blabbermouths. I’m all good with that.
Jefferson: Rule Number #2: You always have back-up.
Anissa: Gambi counts?
Jefferson: Gambi counts. Your mother and her best friend, the “shotgun,” counts.
[They all laugh]
Jefferson: Even though going in alone, doing anything power-related, okay?
Jefferson: Rule Number #3: We don’t kill. Ever.
