OHoward: What the hell happened to you?
Quayle: Aldrich's looking for you.
OHoward: Yeah? Aldrich's not going to be a problem for either one of us anymore.

Ian: Did you feel something for him?
Emily: If I did, it was just a phantom limb.

Howard: I didn't have a choice.
Ian: Of course you didn't.
Howard: I just want to go home.

I'm your enemy, Howard. I'm the one who tried to kill your wife. ... This is how you wanted to win me over? This is your plan? Amazing what the years will do to break the human spirit. When your other was young and found out who his wife really was, he cast away this Interface life and ran to this. My dear boy, I'm perfectly able to give you what you want, but for that to happen, this sad, groveling promise of neutrality, no, no, that just won't do. If you want your life back, I'm going to need more.


Thus endeth diplomacy.


Management would like for Mr. Quayle to make a recommendation.


Quayle: So it was all for this? Five years of marriage. Preparation.
Clare: The future hasn't even begun. The news few hours, days, months are going to get very complicated. You'll see. The next step is for diplomacy to get involved. That wasn't suicide. You had your seatbelt fastened. You were trying to give us an alibi, weren't you? Because you've chosen to protect our family over everything else. We're going to need each other if we're going to get through this.

Howard: I can't be here anymore.
OEmily: Where are you going?
Howard: I'm sorry, I ... I miss my wife. I need to go home.

Quayle: What am I to you? Am I a mark or am actually your husband? Just make up your fucking mind.
Clare: When I first met you, I despised you. The other girls, the lying, bullshit wedding. I went through with it because that's what I do. I spent my whole life becoming this perfect version of someone else. This stupid girl they wanted me to be. I've never had anything of my own. Until she was born. Spencer was mine. Not hers or theirs. For the first time in my life, I had something that belonged only to me. Peter, I know our marriage has been one giant, fucked up sham, but you're the only one who knows me, both sides of who I am.

Andrei: Does this make me some kind of accessory?
OHoward: It makes you the kind of man who's doing the right thing instead of fucking another man's wife.
Andrei: Why trust me?
OHoward: Only because she did.

Don't you understand what they do to anyone who gets in their way? The other you, she tried. She reached out to one of ours months ago, a warning that people were coming over. I told Pope. You know what he did? Had her run down, car accident. That's how far his reach goes!


Peter, I gotta tell ya, this is a bad fuckin' plan.


Counterpart Season 1 Quotes

Howard, why do you think I brought you in on this? For your great tactical skill, your great knowledge of this whole fuckin' thing? I need to pretend to be you, take Baldwin out myself.


I have a new book. 'You, you, only you exist.'
