: When you went up against Sovereign, there was no good reason to believe you'd win. But your crew didn't seem to care — they went along anyway. Your trip through the Omega 4 relay? That was a suicide mission if there ever was one. Yet there your crew was, standing beside you, proud to serve. With all you're facing out there, one thing impresses me most: you inspire confidence. I know everything hasn't gone as well as you'd hoped. Every war has its disagreements, so to speak. But... Your crew has done things no one else would even try — simply because you asked them to. Why? Because they believed in you. Their leader. That's what I need now.

All right, children. It's time for Three Dog to be honest with ya. Here it is, plain as day - I used to think we were all well and truly fucked. The good ole U.S. of A? Ahhh, she's a mess.

That kid from Vault 101 is the last, best hope of humanity. We'll get through this, children. You just gotta believe.
"If someone tells me that it's wrong to hope, I'll tell them they're wrong every time.
You are an annoying little man. Didn't I kill you already? Kelsier:
You tried. But you can't kill me, Lord Tyrant. I represent the thing you've never been able to kill, no matter how hard you try. I am hope.

: You know that sound the TARDIS makes? That wheezing, groaning? That sound brings hope. The War Doctor
: Yes, I like to think so. The Moment
: To anyone who hears it, Doctor. Anyone. Even you.
Follow me, brothers! Follow the Blue Lantern! Even if you
lose hope, I
have enough for us all!
Now fight and believe! ALL WILL BE WELL!
I suppose false hope is better than none. Nahiri:
Any hope is better than none. Always.
