16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Graduation

I can’t tell you much more than that. It wouldn’t be safe. For you or for us. I can tell you that we’re far away and that we’re all trying to avoid the law and do good in the world. Oh, and I guess I should tell you that… Max and I did eventually tie the knot. Give my love to mom. Let her read this journal too. Then give it to Maria’s mom and after that take it and burn it out in the desert by the ruins of the pod chamber where my husband was born. So that’s the end. Our life in Roswell. What a long strange trip it’s been. Will we ever go back? I don’t know. Even I can’t see everything in the future. All I know is that I’m Liz Parker and I’m happy. [X]

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Chant Down Babylon

- You’re involved in something here. I don’t know what it is and I don’t want to know. But it’s wrapped up in lies within lies and that’s not what you’re about. You’re one of the good guys, Jesse. - So are my friends. - They’re liars. You can’t trust them. Not when it counts. Not when it comes time to chant down Babylon and destroy the plans of wicked men.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Four Aliens and a Baby

- I saw her and all of this, energy just came out of me. I mean, all of this, like anger and hatred. I just though that that part of my life was dead and buried. - Wait a minute, no. That part of your life was never dead and buried. I mean, you’ve never truly gotten over that.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Max in the City

You don’t remember any of this, I’m sure, but…our families used to be very close. You and I practically grew up together. I was there at your father’s funeral. At your coronation, your wedding. We were friends. And it was so painful to watch you fall, to see you trying so hard to make a better world for your people. And then to watch you have it all taken away by a man like Kivar…I told you you were trying to do too much too soon, that change takes time. But you wouldn’t listen. You just kept…what’s the point? It’s all ancient history now. What a shame it is to see history repeat itself.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Panacea

- We got another little tip. Several children with terminal cancer mysteriously Healed. - In Phoenix. A serveillance picture of Michael from the hospital. You thought he was the Healer? - Well until he couldn’t heal his friend. Then we knew we had the wrong guy. - You killed Monk as a test? - My husband is dying. We’re desperate. - That’s no excuse to kill someone in cold blood. - What’s done is done. Now heal him. - It doesn’t work like that. I can’t save someone from a natural death. - I think you can. And you will.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Significant Others

- Okay - Okay, what? - Okay, I want to marry you. So, if you don’t take it too personally that I basically just forced you to propose and then said ‘no’, I want to marry you, because I have never loved anyone the way I love you. Because I’m young, but I’m not as young as I seem. Because you don’t know everything about me, but you will…eventually.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Meet the Dupes

We know it’s about us…the original royal four. Some kind of revolution happened, and they were all killed and sent to earth to be reborn. Ever since then, the hood’s been a war zone. And now they want peace. I know you’re not Zan, and I know it’s kinda screwed to lay all this stuff on you, but this meant a lot to him. He’s our peace. He’s our chance to do something with this life. This is it.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → The Departure

You made a deal with them, with Kivar. No, Nacedo made a deal, 40 years ago. What was the deal? Tell me! To return home with your child, and deliver the three of you to Kivar. And what would happen to us once you delivered us?

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Destiny’s DVD Commentary

Jason Katims: The final six episodes of this season starting with “Crazy" and then "Tess, Lies and Video Tape” and there was one in between there. And then there was “Max to the Max” and "The White Room" and then this one. The last six episodes were really– They were six episodes where we knew, as writers, we planned the whole thing out. I mean, obviously, the beats we needed to figure out, and God knows you guys were waiting for us to figure those out, waiting to get scripts. But we had the whole thing planned out and it was kind of a great ride those last six episodes. And it was motivated a lot, frankly, by…we felt, you know, the stakes were sort of high for the characters but they were also high for us on the show because we were very much feeling like we needed to do something to get the show picked up. And our attitude was, “Let’s try to get to an ending– Build to an ending of this season where the network would have to pick up the show if only because they wanted, they needed to know what happened themselves.” And that was kind of our goal. And so, you know, it was a good run of episodes, and when I watch this one it’s amazing to me to think about how the show evolved from the beginning in terms of the stakes. In terms of how much the characters know about themselves, how much they’ve learned, how much had changed, how much has gone on.

Patrick Norris: The other interesting thing about those last six episodes was the fact that we made a movie every eight days. We didn’t just do a TV show. We made a movie. If you look at the production design, you look at the photography, the acting, the choices of shots, the music, everything we put together, based on a script it’s unbelievable the quality we got on a television budget and the emotion we’ve got on a time-schedule budget. It’s unbelievable. When I see these shows, I have to say, it’s probably some of my best work only because of what I was allowed to do and carry, even when people knew I was absolutely crazy for what I was pitching, they just let me be crazy. And I see it paid off in a lot of different areas.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Into the Woods

I guess everyone has their reasons for keeping people away, an instinct to protect yourself from getting hurt. It’s part of human nature. I just wish Max would understand that…that he would realize that he’s not that different from us at all. Maybe then we’d have a chance.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Destiny

If you are seeing me now, it means that you are alive and well. I take this form because it will be familiar to you, and it will help you to understand what I am about to say. You have lived before. You perished in the conflict that enslaves our planet but your essence was duplicated, cloned, and mixed with human genetic materials so that you might be recreated into human beings. My son, you were the beloved leader of our people. I have sent with you your young bride. My daughter, the man you were betrothed to, and your brother’s second-in-command. Our enemies have come to the Earth. You will know them only by the evil within. Learn enough to use your skills, your knowledge, your leadership to combat the enemy so that you can come back and free us. And that I may once again hold you both in my arms. I live for that moment. Help us. I love you.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Leaving Normal

The tough thing about following your heart is what people forget to mention, that sometimes your heart takes you to places you shouldn’t be, places that are as scary as they are exciting and as dangerous as they are alluring, and sometimes your heart takes you to places that can never lead to a happy ending. And that’s not even the difficult part. The difficult part is when you follow your heart, you leave normal, you go into the unknown. And once you do, you can never go back.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Ch-Ch-Changes

“What’s so great about normal?” Do you remember when you asked me that? Back then the answer was nothing. Because of you Max, because of how much you love me. Now though, the answer is different. Normal is something I need. And that’s why I have to leave. I have to figure out what my life means away from Roswell and away from you. Don’t hate me for doing this. I love you more than you can ever know.

16th Roswell Anniversary Rewatch → Wipeout!

Time exists in multiple subset dimensions on our planet. Nicholas must have a technology to impose one or more of these here. It’s like being on Pacific and Eastern and Central and Mountain time all at once. Human bodies can’t function. They simply disappear somewhere. Another dimension, another plane of existence. I don’t know where. They seem to have just…shifted.
