"[Wyoming]'s right. This is Freelancer Tex, broadcasting on an open channel."
Washington drops this bombshell in Reconstruction: "You actually think you're real soldiers?! You guys are nothing!"
"Hey, Simmons? I think he shot me too."
"What in the hell makes you think that I'm going to ask for it?"
From the penultimate episode of Revelation: "[Tex] died in her real life, and that's all the Director ever remembered of her. So now, no matter how tough she is, no matter how hard she fights, she's always going to fail, because that's what she's based on. No matter what she's doing, or what she's trying to accomplish, just when her goal is within her reach, it gets yanked away. Every. Single. Time."
Season Nine does quite a few of these, but the most powerful is undoubtedly in the final episode of the season: "No. I'm not going to say "I love you." I'm going to say "I forget you." I'm letting you go."
"You're gonna help me kill the Director."
"I have a sister." An interesting example: for the characters, it's a pretty low-key Reveal/"Wait, what?" moment. For the audience members (who have a lot more information than the characters), it sends the HSQ meter spiking. Shit is getting real.
When Washington and Carolina are discussing the Meta's rampage, this exchange comes up:
Washington: "It wasn't your fault." Carolina: "But it was my AI."
"But don't say goodbye. I hate goodbyes."
"I just remembered... everything."
"May I suggest Flowers?" "You mean Agent Florida?"
From the end of Season 11... "Good. I'll be there before you know it."
Season 12, episode 8. "But... we were supposed to save you!"
