Pike: Was she this bossy as a kid?
Amanda: On Vulcan, we call it persistent and yes, she was. She learned that from me.

Leland: Control values his skill set. We would like you to work on your recruitment speech.
Georgiou: Don't give me notes.

Georgiou: Control believes that misfits have merit so we keep busy.
Tyler: I'm surprised you call yourself a misfit, Emperor.
