Cloak and Dagger Season 1 Episode 9: "Back Breaker" Quotes
Liam: What is up with you?
Tandy: What do you mean?
Liam: Saying nice things. You’re talking about marriage.
Tandy: Yeah, so?
Liam: When is that you? It’s so normal?
Tandy: You know the dreams I dread before I go to sleep. The good ones... the happy ones... the hopeful ones. Because then you wake up and you’re back to your own life. I realize something when I was without you: It’s my own fault. I’m the reason I dread those dreams because I’m not doing anything to make my life any better.
[She reaches over and grab his hands]
Tandy: It’s gonna stop. I wanna build a life. A happy one. Finally.
Tyrone: Have you even talked to your mom about this?
Tandy: No, but you know what, we’re both on the same page. “If you don’t hurt, you get hurt.”
Tyrone: That’s not how I see it.
Tandy: You will if you ever grow up. And learn that there is nothing you can ever do to bring your big bro back.
Tyrone: Well, excuse me if I don’t take wellness advice from the Brown family.
[Tandy places the white dagger to his throat]
Tandy: Screw you, Tyrone!
Tyrone: I’ll see you in your dreams.
Adina: If you were telling the truth then that meant a cop murdered a teenage boy and covered up the crime. And the only way to do that means that he had help doing it. A lot of help. And that cop gets nervous and he decides he needs to tie up loose ends. What happens to that little boy who’s the only living witness to what he did?
Tyrone: I wasn’t afraid of him.
Adina: Well, that’s a luxury you had. Your father and I couldn’t afford that luxury. We had to be afraid because you alive or you dead meant nothing to them. It still doesn’t. And what you did...
Tyrone: I had back-up! We got him on tape.
Adina: You had a white cop on tape confessing to killing a black kid. Have you been paying attention, Tyrone?! Because in the world that we live in that means absolutely nothing!
Tyrone: So I should just, what, throw my hands up and give up, is that what you’re saying?!
Adina: You put yourself in their crosshairs again.
Tyrone: Someone has to, otherwise nothing will change.
Adina: I’ve already lost one son, Tyrone!
Tyrone: And if I don’t stand up it will be for nothing!
Now you know how it feels.Tandy
