Come back to me, Simon. You have so much more to live for.


I'll love you until I die.


I won't lose you. I can't.


Lilith: Losing Jonathan, hearing him call for me with his final breath was the single most painful moment of my very long life.
Clary: You say that like you loved him?
Lilith: Why wouldn’t I?
Clary: Demons aren’t capable of love.
Lilith: A failing of frail human imagination. Demons live, we die, we feed, we lay. Why wouldn’t we love like you? I need to care for Jonathan like you and your father never would.
Clary: If there’s one thing Valentine and I can agree on, is the fact that the world is a much better place with a monster like Jonathan dead and buried.
[Lilith slaps Clary and uses magic to bind her]
Lilith: My son is not a monster!

Lilith: Oh, anger isn’t a good look on you. Neither are those clothes.
[She snaps her fingers and two acolytes appear beside Clary]
Lilith: Get her cleaned up and into a change of clothes for her brother’s rebirth. Perhaps something blue? That’s what your kind wears when a lost returns, isn’t it?

Simon: I am so sorry.
Becky: I’ve read enough YA to know what happens. So, how long is it until I turn?
Simon: You won’t, I promise. You have to have died with my blood in your system then get buried and then ... feed as soon as you crawl out of your own grave.
Becky: Oh, Simon. You went through all of that on your own? You died? [She cries]
Simon: Medically speaking, yeah.
Becky: Well, I guess all your sketchy behavior makes sense now.

Clary: Let me talk to him. Please. Give him back to me. I can’t lose him again.
Jace: There is no version of this where your Jace wakes up and comes home.
Clary: Jace, if you can hear me in there. I will never give up on you. Never.
[She head butts Jace and runs for it. He catches her.]
Jace: The life you knew is gone. You belong to Lilith now.

Clary: If you were at Lake Lin, and it was Aline instead of Jace, what would you have done?
Consul Penhallow: I know your mother raised you as a Mundane, with the idealistic belief that love comes above all. If I’d been at Lake Lin, we’d still have Raziel’s wish. Because being a shadowhunter is about sacrifice. That’s the one thing you’ve never understood, but maybe now you will.
[She steps back]
Consul Penhallow: Clarissa Fairchild, you are hereby sentenced to death.

Jace: Alec, I need you to kill me.
Alec: What?
Jace: Please. Please, I’ve tried ... I tried so many times. Please, Alec, I’m begging you.
Alec: Jace.
Jace: I need you to do this to me.
Alec: No! Never! You’re coming with us. Okay?
Jace: Izzy, listen, I did all those things. I threw Clary off that rooftop. I possessed all those Mundanes. Imogene.
Isabelle: Whatever it is, it wasn’t you, Jace. It’s Lilith.

Jordan: I know you don’t want me around, but you matter to me.
Maia: Stop!
Jordan: And you always will.
Maia: I said stop! It’s taken everything I’ve had to put you behind me. Why won’t you just let me hate you? Just let me hate you!
[Maia’s werewolf transformation begins]

Seelie Queen: You look stunning as always. Edom’s done wonders for your complexion.
Lilith: And you are clearly eager to send me back there.
Seelie Queen: Don’t be silly. Endowing Eve with Seelie beauty was all the revenge my people ever needed.

Jordan: I want you to know what happened. It started the weekend I went camping, when I got scratched.
Maia: Why didn’t you tell me what was really happening?
Jordan: How do you tell the girl that you love that you’re an animal? A werewolf.
Maia: You should’ve trusted me. I would’ve been there for you.
Jordan: I know that now. When I first turned, I wasn’t thinking straight. I wanted everything to go back to normal but I knew that wasn’t going to happen. I lost it. And when I saw you with that guy
Maia: That night you attacked me ... to get revenge.
Jordan: Revenge? Is that what you think?! It wasn’t revenge, I was jealous and I couldn’t control my turn. I never meant to scratch you, Maia. I swear to God.

Shadowhunters Quotes

It's your 18th birthday. Everything's going to change for you now.


Clary: Simon, how could someone as smart and perceptive as you not realize the person sitting right there is in love with you?
Simon: I guarantee you I'm not the only smart, perceptive person to make that mistake.
