Episode Quotes

John Reese: You didn't do this yourself?
Harold Finch: I couldn't. I'd locked myself out. The machine was designed to accept alterations in its programming only as a response to an attack. I knew that sooner or later someone would try to take it over, but I didn't know who. So I made sure that when they did they'd do it with my code.
John Reese: You hid a virus within a virus.
Harold Finch: I realized that the people Nathan and I had entrusted the machine to were the wrong people and that the only way to protect it would be to teach it to protect itself. I didn't want to involve you in this business, Mr. Reese, because I had hoped that, if I hadn't returned, you would continue what we had started.
Root: Your machine is telling me about all these people, Harold. Their secrets. I'm beginning to understand how you acquired such a dim view of humanity, Harold.
Carl Elias: [after Carter rescues him from HR] Detective Carter. What a funny old world. Where are we going?
Joss Carter: I don't know.
