** The men that Blackwatch recruits are ''broken'', plain and simple. Some of them don't care, others are blind to it, but the men in the patrol knew exactly why they joined Blackwatch. One way or another, they couldn't function in a world where the Blackwatch Creed didn't apply. And they know exactly where men like that end up when they try to live normal lives.

-->"For me civilian life is nothing! In the field we had a code of honor, you watch my back, I watch yours. Back here there's nothing...Back there I could fly a gunship, I could drive a tank, I was in charge of million dollar equipment, back here I can't even hold a job ''parking cars''!"

** The mere fact that [[spoiler:Alex Mercer actually died. For anyone who's played the original Prototype, this is really depressing. Alex doesn't even seem upset that he was defeated and actually laughs.]]
