Fin: Liv, nobody expects you to be Wonder Woman.
Olivia: I do.
Fin: Yeah, well, and I used to think I was Superman.
Olivia: So what happened?
Fin: Life. Time. I mean, what you gonna do?

Stone: What kind of a world is this, Olivia?
Olivia: I guess there has to be a hell so we can recognize heaven.
Stone: Suffer the little children to come unto me. See, that always baffled me. If children have to be suffered to approach God, what kind of a world has He created? If they have to suffer to be close to Him, what sort of a heaven does He reside in?

Olivia: Peter, if you ever want or need to talk about Pam, I'm here.
Stone: She's dead. What's to say?

Sam Conway: It's no big deal, okay? Everyone's making it out to be something that it's not. It's just sex. Everyone does it.
Stone: Not with their father, they don't.
