Guest Starring Edit
- Bellamy: "I need to know what happens after the intake door."
- Lincoln: "They remove your clothes, blast you with boiling water, and douse you with something that burns even worse. From there, we were sorted. The others were tagged Harvest. I was tagged Cerberus, turned into a Reaper."
- Bellamy: "Cerberus. Three-headed dog that guards the underworld."
- Quint: "This argument is a waste of time. It is simple if they can't breathe our air, why not just open the door and be done with it? Let them burn!"
- Lexa: You should've left me behind. Now two will die here instead of one."
- Clarke: "I'm still new to your culture, but when someone saves your life my people say thank you."
- Lexa: "I'm serious Clarke, to lead well you must make hard choices."
- Clarke: "You wanna know why I saved you? Because I need you. God forbid one of your Generals becomes Commander. You may be heartless, Lexa, but at least you're smart."
- Lexa: "Don't worry - my spirit will choose much more wisely than that."
- Clarke: "Your spirit?"
- Lexa: "When I die, my spirit will find the next Commander."
- Clarke: "Reincarnation. That's how you became Commander?"
- Lexa: "How are your leaders chosen?"
- Lexa: "Don't be afraid, Clarke. Death is not the end."
- Clarke: "We are not dying here. I need your spirit to stay where it is."
- Lexa: "Then get ready to fight, it's coming in."
- Lincoln to Bellamy: "The world has been trying to turn me into a monster for as long as I can remember."
- Indra: "You fought like a child today. All aggression, no thought, no defense. Always leaving yourself exposed revealing your next move before each strike."
- Octavia: "Okay, I know. I got my ass kicked. That should make you happy."
- Indra: "It does."
- Fio (hands Octavia a plate of food): The boar put up a better fight than you."
- Jaha to John Murphy: "I have to think of everyone. I know you don't want to hear this, but sometimes you have to sacrifice the few to save the many."
