Season 1 Quotes
|Season 1 / Episode 6: - Ruling From the Tomb|
Max Eilerson: One man's lunatic is another man's saint or holy martyr. In the words of T.S. Eliot, "Saint and martyr rule from the tomb."
|Season 1 / Episode 4: - The Path of Sorrows|
Lt. John Matheson: We received a message for you a little while ago.
Galen: That's not possible. How could anyone even know how to find me?
Lt. John Matheson: I don't know, but the message is incomplete. It just has your name ... and the word "love." The rest of it just got lost in static.
Galen: Could you tell where it came from?
Lt. John Matheson: No. The computer said it didn't come from any specific location.
Galen: Just out there, in general, somewhere?
Lt. John Matheson: Yes.
Galen: Not possible.
Lt. John Matheson: I know.
Isabelle: [in Galen's memory] If there is a purpose, if there is a design, if there is a way - after I'm gone I will call to you and say your name and send you a message. And you will know I was right.
