"You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a Machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I designed the Machine to detect acts of terror but it sees everything: violent crimes involving ordinary people. The government considers these people irrelevant. We don't. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You'll never find us, but victim or perpetrator, if your number's up, we'll find you."

If you can hear this, you're alone. The only thing left of us is the sound of my voice. I don't know if any of us made it. Did we win? Did we lose? I don't know. I'm not even sure I know what victory would mean anymore. But either way, it's over. So let me tell you who we were. Let me tell you who you are...and how we fought back.
—Voice of Root, Opening Monologue of "B.S.O.D."

Finch: You are being watched. The government has a secret system...
Greer: A system you asked for to keep you safe.
Finch: A Machine that spies on you every hour of every day.
Greer: You granted it the power to see everything. To index, order, and control the lives of ordinary people.
Finch: The government considers these people irrelevant. We don't.
Greer: But to it, you are all irrelevant, victim or perpetrator, if you stand in its way.
Finch: We'll find you.
