“Our destiny was set the day we triggered the machine. I didn’t understand until it was too late that our… two worlds were inextricably linked. Without one, the other simply cannot exist. When their world was destroyed, that was the day we sealed our fate. For all intents and purposes… that was the day we died.”
“Deja vu is simply a momentary glimpse to the other side. Almost everyone experiences it. We feel that we’ve been somewhere before because actually we have - in another reality. It’s another path. The road not taken.”
"I, too, attempted the unimaginable, and I succeeded. I crossed into another universe, and took a son that wasn’t mine. And since then, not a day has passed without me feeling the burden of that act.(…) So now I’m looking for a sign of forgiveness. I’ve asked God for a sign of forgiveness. A specific one, a white tulip."
“ I understand the facts. I know that she had rims of information about me; about my life and about people who were close to me. And I understand if she stepped off, she would have a perfectly reasonable explanation for it. And I guess to expect you to have seen past that, perhaps is asking a little too much. When I was there, I thought about you. I knew you were just a figment of my imagination. I held on to you. I wasn’t reasonable and I wasn’t logical, but I did it. So, why didn’t you? ”

“Don’t judge him. No one can be certain exactly what they’re capable of, how far they’ll go to save the ones they love. I know this more than most. Keep an eye on this universe, will you? I’ve grown quite fond of it.”
“ I understand that you think I acted too emotionally. Putting aside the fact that men always say that about women they work with, I’ll get straight to the point. I am emotional. I do bring it into my work. It’s what motivates me. It helps me get into the head space of our victims, see what they’ve seen„ even if I don’t want to, even if it horrifies me. And I think it makes me a better agent. If you have a problem with that, sorry. You can fire me. But I hope you don’t.”
