Review Quotes


In a flashback, young Elliot and his dad have an argument while going to see a movie, after Ed pushed Elliot out the window and broke his arm. Ed collapses and while others run to get help, Elliot takes Ed's jacket and (clearly hallucinating Mr. Robot) goes into the theater by himself.

In the present, Elliot sees the reports that Trenton and Mobley were found dead and thought to be responsible for the Evil Corp attacks. Elliot moves all of his files on them to DVDs, deletes them from his computer, and then destroys the drive. He hasn't left his apartment in the three weeks since the attack.

Darlene visits and tries to convince Elliot that he can be rid of Mr. Robot and that he needs to go see Angela. Elliot insists he's tried everything but can't get rid of Mr. Robot and that he liked what happened. Darlene is scared of how he's being, but he assures her that he just needs time to himself and that they can watch "Careful Massacre" together.

Instead, Elliot goes to buy an entire bag of morphine pills from a drug dealer named Hard Andy, hoping to erase Mr. Robot once and for all from himself and the world, right after burning the Mr. Robot jacket.

Elliot goes to Mobley's brother's house, wanting to know where he can go to pay his respects. The brother, a lawyer, is angry and fully believes that Mobley was a terrorist — as such, he didn't pay for a funeral for Mobley. He slams the door in Elliot's face.

He next goes to see Trenton's family, who are leaving their home. He assures her dad that Trenton was innocent. Her dad believes it, saying that someone did this to her and that the country blames Muslims for everything.

Elliot goes to the Coney Island Beach by himself and pops open the bag of morphine pills. Trenton's kid brother approaches him, remarking on the large amount of pills, and refuses to leave when Elliot insists he go home. He questions why Elliot believes Trenton didn't do anything wrong.

Elliot tries to take the boy home, but the boy just keeps nagging him and wanting to talk to him. When they get to the house, it's locked and his parents are gone. After he tries to argue for a bit, the little boy convinces Elliot to take him to the movies.

When they get there, the kid really wants to see "The Martian" but Elliot sees that the "Back to the Future" trilogy is playing in honor of it being October 21, 2015 and insists they see that instead. The little boy disappears during the movie and Elliot runs out to look for him.

A Hasidic Jewish ice cream truck driver stops for Elliot, who asks about finding a mosque near a playground — the mosque that the boy said he went to with Trenton and their family. The stranger helps Elliot find the correct mosque, where he finds the boy sitting by himself. They argue about the "important" thing that Elliot has to do, and Elliot angrily confesses that he wishes he were dead. The boy confesses that sometimes he feels guilty, like he did something bad to make his sister leave. Elliot reassures the boy that it wasn't his fault, or Trenton's — it was Elliot's own fault.

They talk and the boy explains that he's the only person in his family who was born in the country and so the only one who could be president. He also reveals that he was born in Trenton, which is how Trenton came up with her hacker codename.

Elliot finally walks the boy home and notices that his parents still aren't home, but the kid pulls out keys, revealing he had them the entire time. The little boy asks if he can see Elliot again, and Elliot promises to take him to see "The Martian" before the family leaves town.

Elliot goes to see Mobley's brother again and threatens him with what he found after hacking his corporate email (the contact for Hard Andy) into throwing Mobley a funeral. He tosses the bag of pills to the brother and warns him that he'll be in the back of the funeral, listening for a nice eulogy.

In the final moments, Elliot finally goes to Angela's apartment to see her so they can talk, telling her he's worried about her. She listens from the other side of the door but doesn't let him in. He moves to leave, then changes his mind and slides down against the door and keeps talking to her about their childhood and what they'd wish for when they played their wishing game.

Elliot returns home, and masked people throw his back of trash (including his Mr. Robot jacket) back at him. Elliot retrieves it, then goes into his apartment, where he gets his dog back and finds the encrypted email that Trenton set her computer up to automatically send if anything were to happen to her.

Mr. Robot Season 3 Episode 8 Quotes

Mohammed: "The Martian" has 92% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Elliot: That's because most critics have shitty taste.

Deletion. When you make that decision, there's always that moment of hesitation. That annoying "Are you sure?" dialogue box, and then you have to make a decision. Yes or no. Yes means ridding the world of Mr. Robot forever. That includes you. Maybe it's something I should have done a long time ago.
