->''"The problem with a 'redemption' gig is, well, no one want to see it. They all went to believe in it, sure, but to do it... it's as good as signing your own death warrent. Audiences don't want to see you redeemed, living a normal life. They'll never truly forgive your for your flaws as long as you're alive."''

-->'''Lindsey:''' I can't go back there, they'll kill me!
-->'''Angel:''' That's what we call an acceptable risk. You're panicking right now, you can't believe how bad you've let things get. That's not change. See, you have to make a decision to change, that's something you do by yourself. Most people they never do.
-->'''Lindsey:''' I get myself killed that'll convince you I've changed?
-->'''Angel:''' It's a start.

** Somewhat inverted during the [[KillThemAll Genocide Run]]. Final boss, [[spoiler:Sans]], offers to spraer player midway through [[spoiler:his]] fight. If player accepts, [[ISurrenderSuckers he'll get attacked with an unblockable insta-kill]]. However, considering how boss [[spoiler:knows about player's ability to control time and actually asks them to go back and do everything again right way]], it's less "redemption equals death" and more "resurrection equals redemption".
