Jonathan Irons: People don't want freedom. They want boundaries, rules. Protection. From invaders and from themselves. People need a leader who can give them both the support and the constraints to keep chaos at bay. You give them that, and they'll follow... And that's where I come in.

Jonathan Irons: Many of you have been asking questions. The most common being, "Are we in the stages of developing a weapon capable of mass destruction?" The answer is no. Because we've already built it.

Gideon: Best weapon you have is the one between your ears. Use it.

Cormack: [at Will Irons' funeral] It was an unfortunate tragedy, sir.

Jonathan Irons: It was more than unfortunate, Sergeant. It was unnecessary.

Jonathan Irons: [giving speech at the United Nations assembly] I am honored to be the first CEO of a private corporation to become a member of the United Nations Security Council. Unfortunately, my appearance today has been clouded by a flurry of speculation that my company is developing a weapon of mass destruction which would be capable of targeting specific ethnic groups. I want to address these allegations head on. Are we developing such a weapon? No we are not. Because we've already developed it. But with all due respect, the United Nations is a relic from a different time when nations were unique in their ability to solve the world's problems. But that just isn't the case anymore. Primarily because you have outsourced the job to me. I have sent people to die in your wars. So I feel uniquely qualified to tell you, your wars don't work! Which is why my priorities have changed; from profits to policy. Because politicians don't know how to solve problems. But I do. So let's be clear: I am here to solve the world's problems. And I believe the world's problems... begin with you.

Cormack: [shortly before dying] Don't stop... don't...

Hades: [in his dying breath] He knows...

[gives Mitchell a data chip]

Hades: Irons knows...
