"You need a similar name. More powerful name. A name like... Scorch." "Scorch? You're joking." "Have you ever heard of Steve Rogers? No. Captain America, now he's on the news and lunch box and a poster on the wall."
"Will you tell me what he's like?" "Never. The last person who tried to learn such things got a knife for it. I don't want to have to do that again, Raina. You have such pretty eyes." "I understand. You can't even whisper to me about him." "No, I can't."
"I know you don't want to believe it, but you can't tell me nothing makes you doubt, makes you wonder what happened in Tahiti." "It's a magical place. I keep saying that." " Don't you want to know why?"
"You didn't just give your life, you gave up your chance at a normal one, at love. And she did love you, Agent Coulson." "How could you know that?" "Do you miss her? Dinners at the Richmond. Do you miss hearing her play? You didn't have a chance to say goodbye." "I couldn't... I can't..." "She cried for days after S.H.I.E.L.D. told her you died. They shattered her heart with a lie, and now they're lying to you." "No. No they're not." "I know you don't want to believe it, but you can't tell me nothing makes you doubt, makes you wonder what happened in Tahiti.""
"Why are you here?" "For you and others like you. People with gifts, I'm waiting for what's inside to be revealed. The girl, Skye. What do you know about her? Where does she come from?" "Why do you care?" "Because inside, I believe she and I have something in common."
"Who wants it? Who has you so afraid, Raina?" "... Daniel Whitehall." "He scares you more than I do?" "Please. He's very powerful." "Hmm." "He has resources!" "He's a butcher." "And what are you?" "I'M A MAN! Trying to put my family back together!"
"If my daughter wasn't here, I would tear you and your men to pieces." "Well, then, I'll add that to the number of reasons that I'm glad she's here. You are the piece of the puzzle I can't decipher. Why are you really here?" "Is it really that hard to see? It's love. Agent Ward believes if he helps Skye fulfill her destiny, she'll see him for what he really is." "(To Zabo)Aww. It's a pity you won't get to fulfill that destiny, or that after all those years, you won't get your vengeance after what I did to your wife."
"Your whole life... our whole lives have been leading up to his moment." "Sorry. I don't buy into the whole "this is your destiny" thing. We're taking the Obelisk, and we're leaving. There's too many lives at stake." "You got it all wrong. Whitehall, everyone has got it all wrong. This doesn't destroy. It gives life; new life. We finally get to find out what we become.(the Obelisk floats onto a pedestal)" "Make it stop." "I can't. Neither of us can now."
"After all that time, I didn't quite get the answers I was searching for." "I'm sorry you didn't find your way to the temple. You didn't get to evolve." "Oh, I evolved. What the hell have I become?" "Raina. Let's not lose our heads." "What happened to me?" "Metamorphosis, by the look of it." "I was supposed to become something divine, something transcendent. My grandmother said I'd be an angel, not some gnarled freak of nature covered in thorns." "You always did like flowers." "They hurt, and it's all your fault."
