|— Bellamy to Octavia|
- Michael Vinson: "Inspiration loves company."
- Octavia Blake (to Bellamy Blake about Clarke Griffin): "Here we go again, pleading for the life of a traitor who you love."
- Monty Green: "I don't want to be a killer anymore. I don't want to take lives to save them."
- Harper McIntyre: "Then don't."
- Monty Green: "What if I say no and people we care about die?"
- Harper McIntyre: "They might, but everyone dies, Monty. Let's show them how to live."
- John Murphy (about Paxton McCreary): "Last chance, our hostage for yours."
- Charmaine Diyoza: "May God have mercy on his soul."
- Charmaine Diyoza: "Come on, Kane. Without Graveyard McCreary, my internal problem is solved. Without the Red Queen, our problem external is. This is how we get to peace."
- Marcus Kane: "Is it? Because from where I'm standing, it looks like we're trading one dictator for another. Political assassinations, torture, wrongful imprisonment."
- Charmaine Diyoza: "This is about me giving Abby pills."
- Marcus Kane: "You mean, feeding an addict's addiction to save your people's lives without a thought for the life you're destroying? Yes. It is. I've seen the horrors we inflict on each other in the name of survival, Colonel. God knows I'm as guilty as anyone. But we're on the brink here, on the edge of an abyss I've stared into before, and I can tell you, having sacrificed the few to save the many more times than I care to admit. Eventually, the few becomes the many. The ends don't always justify the means, and if you don't know that by now after everything you've been through, then you're just as bad as Octavia. And we're already lost."
