Anissa: I kinda like Blackbird. She cool, right?
Jennifer: You’re such an overachiever. It’s not enough you’re in medical school, you gotta be two superheroes. Well, maybe just one now because of Dad’s code?
Anissa: Nah, Blackbird is needed. But I will start planning better and stop lone wolfing it.
Jennifer: You know, I could start coming with you?

Agent Odell: I know exactly who ... and what ... you all are.
Lynn: You need to leave.
Agent Odell: There’s something you need to know. The Markovians have a stockpile of metahumans in pods; the largest on Earth.
Jefferson: You’ve been asked to leave ... nicely.
Agent Odell: Not yet, Mr. Pierce. Thanks to you, the Markovians have Dr. Jace. And here’s the best part, the concentration of metahumans in Freeland from the vaccines and the Green Light experiments make it the greatest threat to Markovia. It’s only a matter of time before they launch a lethal first strike. I’m swearing in Black Lightning, Thunder, and whatever you’re calling yourself, young lady.
[Jennifer inches closer behind Anissa]
Agent Odell: The Markovian war is coming. And Freeland ... *Free*land ... is ground zero.

Tobias: It’s always Black Lighting. He thinks he can take my chaos. Wait till I put 12 dazed and enraged metahumans on his punk a**!
Cutter: No, don’t Tobias, think! If you release the pods now, we’ll lose everything we’ve worked toward.
[Tobias grabs her by the throat. She kicks off and draws her blade]
Tobias: So, you’re going to cut me now?
Cutter: No, but I’m leaving you.
[Cutter walks away]
Tobias: Like I give a damn! I can have 10 of you by tomorrow.

Tobias: Who the hell are you?
Jennifer: Call me “Lightning.” And this ... is payback!
[Jennifer uses her powers to lift Tobias up and electrocute him]

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: Mhmm.
Jefferson: No.
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?
Anissa: Okay.
Jefferson: Rule Number #3: We don’t kill. Ever.

Anissa: Hi, I’m Anissa Pierce. I’m a friend of Grace ... Grace Choi.
[Awkward silence]
Anissa: Like I said, I’m really not here for any trouble. I just want to make sure she’s okay.
Man: Trouble will find you if you do not leave this place.
Anissa: Excuse me?
[His eyes flash a different color]
Anissa: Wow, is everything alright in here?
Man: Leave while you can.
[The door slams and Anissa bangs on it]

Agent Odell: I’m not here to waste my sentiments on Wendy.
Lynn: Waste?
Agent Odell: She can’t sniff out landmines, but she can do other things for her government and country to keep its citizens safe. That’s why she’s here.
Lynn: She’s here to get strong, healthier.
Agent Odell: She’s here to realize her full potential for the benefit of all of us. Wendy could prove to be more revolutionary than the tank or the machine gun.

Jennifer: Okay, lower.
Gambi: [Drawing design] Like this?
Jennifer: Nhmmm ... lower. Lower.
Lynn: Hey, hey, hey! It’s not a swimsuit.
Jennifer: Okay, thank you, Mom. I know it’s not a swimsuit. Because if it was, it’d be a tiny bikini!
[They all laugh]
Jennifer: Alright, let me show you something. Could you make it a little bit more like this? You know what I’m saying?
Gambi: Jenn, you’re not supposed to look like a pop star. The suit is supposed to protect you.
Jennifer: Okay, first off, a “pop star”? Really?! And second, that’s dope!

Jefferson: I didn’t mean to disrespect. It’s just ... you caught me off guard. I thought you were dead!
Lala: I was dead. Twice.

Black Lightning Season 2 Quotes

Lynn: Look, I know this has been a lot. Finding out about your dad and Anissa, and discovering you have powers must be mind-blowing on so many levels. But you can’t isolate yourself and not talk about it.
Jennifer: What do you want me to say?
Lynn: That you’re going to commit to finding a way to deal with this.
Jennifer: Dealing with what? The fact that I float in my sleep? Or that Dad died ... twice? Are you dealing with the fact that you shot someone with a shotgun? Or that Gambi killed a man? Or that I electrocuted somebody who might be died now? Which part do you want me to deal with first, Mom?!

Agent Odell: I’m not really interested in how much you’ve been studying now. I prefer you answer my question.
Lynn: Excuse me, I would like to finish my answer. I‘ve been studying green light for some time now, and I understand its components and neurological effects better than anyone.
Agent Odell: What happened to the other scientist managing the pods?
Lynn: When we arrived no one was there, just the children in those pods.
Agent Odell: So, I guess he went to the same place as, umm, the surveillance footage and Agent Proctor?
[Lynn looks away]
Detective Odell: This is useless. I’m done here. You’re not allowed to leave town or talk to anybody about this until the investigation is over. And, your access to the pods is finished.
Lynn: What? Did you not hear what I said?! I understand green light and these children better than anyone.
[He leans forward]
Detective Odell: You’re a liar. You’ve been sitting here lying to me for about an hour and a half. You know you’re lying; you’re not going to admit it, and I don’t like liars. Not because they lie, because we all lie, but because they make my job harder, and I’ve got enough cow manure to deal with than to have you make my life more ... difficult. Thank you for your cooperation, Dr. Stewart.
[He gets up and leaves]
