Season 1 Quotes

01x07 - Episode Seven Season 1 / Episode 7: - Episode Seven

Gatehouse: [Gabriel tries to stop Gatehouse] Why are you doing this?
Jonah Gabriel: Because it matters.
Gatehouse: For other people to see you, standing out there in all that bright, white light? I'm sure it does matter. The problem is, Jonah Gabriel, that kind of glare, it just turns you blind. Because all I have to do is this... [Gatehouse flicks open his lighter, lights it and then flicks it out]... and your light goes out.
Jonah Gabriel: [the laser that was aimed at Gatehouse is then directed at Gabriel. Gatehouse then blows gently as if he is blowing out a light, and then Lia Honey, who is holding the sniper rifle, shoots Gabriel] No!

Ratallack: Now it's our turn.
Jay Wratten: Yeah. But how long is that gonna last?
Gatehouse: I think you know the answer to that already. And if you don't, you should.
Jay Wratten: Twenty years, and then a headshot in the back of a car?
Gatehouse: Not if you remember the rule.
Jay Wratten: Yeah? And what exactly is that?
Gatehouse: Simple. You, you're the threads. But me, I'm the rope.
