Hiro Nakamura: [as the Future Hiro] My name is Hiro Nakamura. I'm from the future. I have a message for you.

Niki Sanders: I don't have a husband. He left.

Nathan Petrelli: For another woman?

Niki Sanders: I wish.

Nathan Petrelli: Man?

Niki Sanders: [laughs] I would take that one too.

Niki Sanders: [as Jessica, Niki's alter ego] Niki's not here right now.

Ando Masahashi: [after winning in a game of roulette] I won! I won! Did you see? I won!

Hiro Nakamura: Okay. Let's leave now.

Ando Masahashi: Thank you. Now? Are you kidding? I'm on a roll!

Hiro Nakamura: No. You're not.

Ando Masahashi: But I just won. Big.

Hiro Nakamura: I did it. I stopped time. Moved the ball. You won because of me.

[Ando looks at Hiro surprised]

Hiro Nakamura: It's horrible. I'm a terrible person. But it was our last dollar.

Ando Masahashi: It's genius. Do it again!

Hiro Nakamura: No! It's cheating.

Ando Masahashi: Is Peter Parker cheating when he sells pictures of Spider-Man?

Hiro Nakamura: No.

Ando Masahashi: All heroes have a system. This is our system.

Hiro Nakamura: [smiles and shouts in English] Let it ride!

Mohinder Suresh: Your life may be in danger. I believe someone is targeting you.

Nathan Petrelli: Can you be a little bit more specific? Twelve percent of the electorate strongly opposes me.

Matt Parkman: What are you, FBI? Huh? What, are you CIA?

Mr. Bennet: I'm not part of any organization that has initials.

Matt Parkman: Listen to me. Whoever you think I am, believe me, I'm not him. I'm not... I'm not anyone.

Mr. Bennet: Oh, that's not true. You're someone. You're someone very special.

Mr. Bennet: Everything you see, by tomorrow, it won't matter.

Matt Parkman: Who's Claire?

Mr. Bennet: You're further along than we thought.

[to the Haitian]

Mr. Bennet: Go deep. Then clean him out.

Peter Petrelli: What if he can? Paint the future, I mean? Stranger things, right?

Simone Deveraux: No, that's about as strange as it gets.

Nathan Petrelli: [to Peter] Don't insult me. I've got trained professionals that do that.

Simone Deveraux: [seen wearing only Peter's shirt] Hey! Where's your mugs?

Peter Petrelli: Hey. It's... uh... They're in the cabinet, with the water stain that looks like Abraham Lincoln.

Mohinder Suresh: Look at what's happening to our planet: over-population, global warming, drought, famine, terrorism - deep down we all sense something's not right. My father always talked about how an entire species will go extinct, while others no more unique or complex will change and adapt in extraordinary ways- He had a romantic take on evolution.

Peter Petrelli: And you don't? You're both geneticists.

Mohinder Suresh: That is also evolution. We're all just variations of the last model.

Peter Petrelli: Ch'yeah. We're just cheap knock-offs of our fathers.

[first lines]

Mohinder Suresh: [voiceover] Sometimes questions are more powerful than answers. How is this happening? What are they? Why them and not others? Why now? What does it all mean?

Matt Parkman: I was at a bar, having a beer.

Ms. Sakamoto: There's a man arriving this afternoon from New York. A politician who wants some help from Mr. Linderman. We're looking for a little insurance on our investment.

Niki Sanders: And you want me to...? I'm not a whore.

Ms. Sakamoto: I think we've established what you are.

Campaign Manager: I don't know about this. I mean, it just makes me nervous.

Nathan Petrelli: It's your job to be nervous. It's my job to get elected. In order to do that I need money. Linderman's two million, we could turn eight points into three and make it a horse race.

Simone Deveraux: Peter, I... uh, I don't know what this is. I mean, us. You know, I just got out of a two year relationship that was very destructive. And here I am sleeping with the guy who was taking care of my dying father and it's a little confusing.

Peter Petrelli: I don't wanna be the rebound guy.

Simone Deveraux: I just need time to catch my breath before you take it away again. Okay?

Mr. Bennet: [Claire's dad sees her muddy feet] Were you out all night?

Claire Bennet: No.

Mr. Bennet: Were you with the quarterback?

Claire Bennet: Yeah. Yeah, it was just a bunch of us. It was stupid, I'm sorry.

Sandra Bennet: Honey, you're gonna miss your plane!

Mr. Bennet: Be there in a second.

[to Claire]

Mr. Bennet: I'm very disappointed in you.

Claire Bennet: Nothing happened. We played poker. I'm sorry.

Mr. Bennet: I love you, Claire. I just want you to be honest with me. You can tell me anything. You know that.

Claire Bennet: I know. I love you too.

Mr. Bennet: Don't think you're getting away with this staying-out-all-night thing. There's gonna be a throw down when I get home.

Peter Petrelli: You Chandra Suresh?

Mohinder Suresh: No. That was my father.

Peter Petrelli: Yeah, um... Your father wrote a book about people with... abilities. I-I think I may be one of them.

Tina: So, you still lookin' in the mirror seeing a you that ain't you.

Niki Sanders: Yep.

Tina: Hell I can relate. It's called getting old. A little botox would do us both some good.

Eden McCain: [to Peter] It was a pleasure to meet you. Um, good luck with the whole flying thing.

Simone Deveraux: Isaac.

Isaac Mendez: Paintings are by the door.

Simone Deveraux: I thought I was buying the new pieces?

Isaac Mendez: I need the new pieces.

Simone Deveraux: Because they tell you what's gonna happen in the future?

Isaac Mendez: How much for the old paintings?

Simone Deveraux: To tell you the truth, Isaac, I don't know if I could sell those.

Isaac Mendez: So you only like the ones I painted when I was high. Interesting. So, you won't give me an advance?

Simone Deveraux: That depends what you're gonna do with the money.

Isaac Mendez: I need painting supplies.

Simone Deveraux: I take it you're not talking about oils and canvas?

Claire Bennet: Look, you can't say anything. I'm fine. He was drunk and it was an accident.

Zach: Which part was an accident? The rape or the murder?

Claire Bennet: It didn't happen.

Zach: Yeah, because he killed you before he had the chance.

Claire Bennet: I'm alive!

Zach: Yeah, now. But you weren't on the autopsy table.

Claire Bennet: Shhh!

Zach: Look, you said you had a hole in your head. Okay, maybe... maybe when they pulled whatever was in there, it's when you like, rebooted or whatever.

Claire Bennet: I'm not a hard drive.

Zach: No, you're little Miss Miracle Grow.

Claire Bennet: Don't ever call me that again.

Campaign Manager: You're meeting Miss Sakamoto tomorrow at 11:00 a.m.

Nathan Petrelli: No Linderman?

Campaign Manager: Uh, he's quote "otherwise occupied".

Nathan Petrelli: Occupied? What is he, a Porta Potty? Don't let Sakamato geisha you. Get him in the room.

Peter Petrelli: I've only met him the once, but maybe I ought to do the talking to start. He's, uh, he's kind of a heroin addict.

Mohinder Suresh: Heroin addict? You neglected to mention that.

Peter Petrelli: Hey, just suspend the skepticism, at least until you meet him.

Mohinder Suresh: The default scientific position is skepticism.

Peter Petrelli: Well, your father managed to get around it. I don't know, he took a pretty big leap. Gotta respect that.

Mohinder Suresh: I did more than respect it. I believed him. I had to. I was his son.

Peter Petrelli: Can't be the only reason why you believed him.

Ando Masahashi: Full house. I win again!

Claire Bennet: [closes her locker door and finds Lori Trammel leaning on a nearby locker] Oh, hey, Lori.

Lori Trammel: Hey. I saw you go off with Brody Mitchum last night at the bonfire.

Claire Bennet: So?

Lori Trammel: So what happened?

Claire Bennet: Nothing. Nothing happened.

Lori Trammel: I went off with Brody Mitchum once. "Nothing" happened to me too.

[Claire follows Lori's gaze and sees Brody trying to push up on another girl]

Ando Masahashi: Which casino do we hit next?

Hiro Nakamura: Huh? Are you crazy? No more gambling! We need to get back to our mission.

Ando Masahashi: Hey. Can you teleport us to the craps table in Caesar's Palace?

High Roller: Hello, boys. I think you have something that belongs to me. See, I had three aces at that poker table. Next thing I know, you two had 'em.

Claire Bennet: [driving Brody's car at an increasing speed; to Brody] Don't you think it's a little weird that neither one of us remember what happened the night of the bonfire?

Brody Mitchum: Must've been some night.

Claire Bennet: Yeah, must have.

[accelerates the car to sixty miles an hour and runs a light when it turns red]

Brody Mitchum: Slow down. That was a red light.

Claire Bennet: [indifferently] Whoops.

[Claire shifts the stick up and accelerates the car further]

Brody Mitchum: You know how to drive a stick-shift, don't you?

Claire Bennet: There's a lot of things that I know. Like what you did to me.

Brody Mitchum: What'd I do to you? I knew it. I knew this would happen. You get drunk, you come on to me, and it's my fault?

Claire Bennet: [with increasing rage] You're a liar!

Brody Mitchum: You can't rape the willing, Claire. You wanted it as bad as I did. Now stop the car.

Claire Bennet: Did I want it as bad as Lori Trammel?

Brody Mitchum: Lori Trammel is a slut!

Claire Bennet: Is that what you're gonna say about me?

Brody Mitchum: I already do.

Claire Bennet: You're just gonna keep at it, aren't you?

Brody Mitchum: [wryly] You should let it go, Claire. There's nothing you can do about it.

Claire Bennet: I can do this.

[Claire accelerates the car even further; the car hits a bump and bounces as Brody screams; a split second later, they crash into the wall of a building]

Hiro Nakamura: [as Future Hiro] Peter Petrelli.

Peter Petrelli: How is this happening?

Hiro Nakamura: [as Future Hiro] I'm sorry if I scared you. You look different without your scar.

Peter Petrelli: I don't know you, buddy.

Hiro Nakamura: [as Future Hiro] Not yet.

Mr. Bennet: Hello.

Matt Parkman: Is this a hospital? Am I hurt?

Mr. Bennet: You're fine.

Mr. Bennet: We had to drug you. I'm sorry about that.

Matt Parkman: What? What's going on?

Mr. Bennet: Please don't get excited Matt. We're trying to test your resting rate.

Matt Parkman: Let me outta here.

Mr. Bennet: Just relax.

Matt Parkman: What are you people?

Mr. Bennet: Trying to hear my thoughts Matt? Not with my friend here. He's special too.

Isaac Mendez: Are you in love with him? It looks like you're in love with him.

Simone Deveraux: I don't how I feel about him. And I don't know how I feel about you.

Isaac Mendez: So here we are not knowing how we feel about each other and this entire city is gonna go

[makes explosion noise]

Isaac Mendez: . Unless I stop it.

Simone Deveraux: You think you can save us all by shooting up?

Isaac Mendez: I can save everybody.

[laughs softly]

Isaac Mendez: I'm gonna be a hero.

Ando Masahashi: You better back off! My friend has very big power, can take you all out - make you wish you'd never been born!

[thug punches out Hiro]

Ando Masahashi: [in Japanese] Did you call the comic book writer?

Hiro Nakamura: [in Japanese] I left messages. In Japanese. I need to learn how to say "You're going to die in five weeks then New York will explode" in English.

[looks at a translation book]

Ando Masahashi: [in English] You are going to die in five weeks then New York will explode.

[in Japanese]

Ando Masahashi: I'll teach you how to say it phonetically.

Mohinder Suresh: So when you're with your brother you can fly, and when you're with the artist...

Peter Petrelli: Isaac. Yeah. Umm, I only met him once, but after, I-I drew the future.

Mohinder Suresh: And now you can't do either.

Peter Petrelli: Maybe I can only do things when I'm around other people who can... do things.


Peter Petrelli: 'Kay, that sound as lame as I think it did?

Mohinder Suresh: It sounds like you should be talking to my father. This was his research, not mine.

Peter Petrelli: Well, where is he? How do I get a hold of him?

Mohinder Suresh: He's on the table.

Peter Petrelli: [sees urn] I-I'm sorry. But you believe that this is possible, you have to. I mean, you believed it this morning. What if I prove it to you?

Mohinder Suresh: Then prove it.
