    Season 1 


Skye: *narration* The secret is out. For decades your organization stayed in the shadows. Hiding the truth. But now we know...they're among us. Heroes...and monsters. The world is full of wonders. We can't explain everything we see. But our eyes are open. So what now? There are no more shadows or you to hide in. Something impossible just happened. What are you going to do about it?

Hill: The battle of New York was the end of the world. This... now... is the new world. People are different. They have access to tech, to formulas, secrets they're not ready for.

Coulson: Sorry, this corner was really dark and I couldn't help myself. (beat) I think a bulb is out or something.

Ward: I don't think Thor is... technically a god.
Hill: Then you haven't been near his arms.

Skye: With great power comes... a ton of weird crap that you are not prepared to deal with.

Hill: What does "S.H.I.E.L.D." stand for, Agent Ward?
Ward: Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division.
Hill: And what does that mean to you?
Ward: It means someone really wanted our initials to spell out "SHIELD." [Hill gives him a look] …It means we're the line between the world and the much weirder world. We protect people from news they aren't ready to hear. And when we can't do that, we keep them safe.

Ward: There are two ways we can do this.
Skye: [mocking] Ooh, is one of them the easy way?
Ward: No.
Skye: ...oh.

Ward: I'm sorry. I was trained from day one as a specialist. I go in alone. I get it done. Defusing a nuclear bomb... I'm your guy. A welcoming committee? Not my speed.
Coulson: I know it's not what you want. Agent Hill did a very detailed assessment of your last three missions. Combat? Top grades. Espionage? She gave you the highest marks since Romanoff. Under "people skills" she drew a... I think it's a little poop with knives sticking out of it.

Simmons: We've a couple of hours at most, there's no way that we could possibly—
Coulson: Don't ever tell me that there's no way!


Ward: Skye? Girl's not qualified to be a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.
Coulson: Agreed. That's why I've invited her on as a consultant. S.H.I.E.L.D. does it all the time. Technically, Stark's a consultant.
Ward: And technically, Skye's a member of the Rising Tide. She hacked our RSA implementation.
Coulson: Twice. From a laptop. Imagine what she'll do with our resources.
Ward: I am. That's exactly what I'm imagining during this frown. You brought me on for risk assessment. She's a risk. She doesn't think like us.
Coulson: Exactly.

Coulson: I'm calling this. But your frown will be on record.

Skye: We should warn the people who live around here if the 0-8-4 is dangerous. They're already dealing with anti mining rebels and the shining path guerillas. I could post something.
Coulson: Remember the panic when that anti matter meteor splashed down just off the coast of Miami, nearly devoured the city?
Skye: ...No.
Coulson: Precisely. Because we kept it quiet and contained.
Skye: So, what am I doing?
Coulson: Well, if it gets out, I might need you to create some kind of diversion, put the public on the wrong scent.
Skye: So everything that I'm against.
Coulson: Yep.

Fury: Really? Really, Coulson? Six days? It only took you six days to take a completely renovated piece of state of the art machinery and turn it into scrap?
Coulson: My team acted with my authority.
Fury: Don’t talk to me about authority. Do you know how much this plane costs? It's got a bar! ...a really nice one. Talking to me about authority; you know I have the authority to downgrade your ass to a Winnebago!

Reyes: Your renewed idealism, your collectibles, your airborne man cave, surrounding yourself with young, attractive agents...(pats him on the thigh) you're having a mid-life crisis.
Coulson: More like an afterlife thing, really.
Reyes: And I'm not even going to mention the red corvette.
Coulson: Her name is Lola.
Reyes:: [laughs] Of course it is.

Fitz: What's first? We can't get upstairs without going in the lab.
Simmons: And the only way to release the lab doors is from upstairs.
Skye: The first thing is, we're tied to the cargo door, so unless you can —
May: [snap]
Fitz: What the hell was that?
Ward: Her wrist.

The Asset

Quinn: [after Skye takes his gun] Do you have what it takes to pull the trigger?
Skye: ...nope. [jumps out the window]

Quinn: SHIELD's against everything you stand for. They're Big Brother.
Skye: Maybe... but they're the nice Big Brother who stands up for his helpless little brother who is getting beat up, because... he ate a piece of cake... that he wasn't ... and, you know—You kidnapped a person!

Eye Spy

Ward: I'll finish, whatever it takes.
The Englishman's Message: Seduce him.
Ward: ...Help.

The Beginning Of The End

Simmons: Why would you make me do this? You're my best friend in the world!
Fitz: Yeah, and you're more than that, Jemma. But I couldn't find the courage to tell you. So please, let me show you.

Garrett: You hear the dying breath of an old world, general. But a new world is coming. I've tasted it on my tongue.
General: ...this is your strategy consultant?
Quinn: He's part time.

Fury: You didn't tell me he'd gone this crazy.
Coulson: He's really stepped it up a notch.

    Season 2 


Coulson: I know it was a risk, if we went down today it would probably be for good. But now we have a chance to survive. We have soldiers willing to sacrifice, but they need weapons. The enemy has the advantage, we need one of our own.
Mack: You'll risk that for a Quinjet?
Coulson: No, for what we could do with one, disappear, become ghosts. That's how we have to live now, in the shadows to save people, even when they don't know it, don't want it.

The Things We Bury

Christian Ward: Listen to yourself, just listen to yourself! You twist every act, and blame it on somebody else! Mom and Dad were terrible, but they didn't put the match in your hand when you burnt down that damn house! And I didn't squeeze the trigger when you killed all those people!
Grant Ward: No... it is my fault. I let you all hollow me out, control me.
Christian Ward: Spare the non-apology. I'm a senator.

What They Became

Raina: Your whole life, our whole lives have been leading to this moment... we finally get to find out what we become.

S.O.S. (Part 1)

Alisha: "I'm headed down to secure the armory. I'm also upstairs in the conference room."

S.O.S. (Part 2)

Mack: You're Gordon, right?
Gordon: Who are you?
Mack: I'm the guy who kills Gordon.

Ward: Do you understand who you work for now? (beat) Good. I'm done flying solo. I miss having a team around me. I want more names.
Hydra Goon: Hail Hydra to that! What's the plan, sir? Chaos?
Ward: Closure.

Coulson: We have to do this. We don't have a choice. It may feel like things have cooled down right now, but this is my permanent reminder that we'll always be paying the price. That we'll never get ahead of the consequences, that I, that you, that S.H.I.E.L.D. have set in motion.
Skye: Like a ripple in the water.
Coulson: But this ripple won't fade. It'll grow, and grow, until it's a tidal wave.

    Season 3 

Laws of Nature

Daisy: This is my partner, Mack- we're just going to talk.
Joey Gutierrez: [to Mack] So- she's the greeting party, and you're the muscle, huh?
Mack: Believe me- she is the muscle.

Many Heads, One Tale

Fitz: Do you love him?
Simmons: I don't know. I think... yes.
Fitz: Yeah, of course you do. He's strong and smart. And you gave each other hope on the edge of nowhere.
Simmons: Don't do this Fitz.
Fitz: You think I didn't look for dirt on him? I did, and there's nothing. I can't hate him, he's great. Why else would you fall for him? He did everything right.
Simmons: And you dove through a hole in the universe for me.


Ward: Saw something terrible today. When I say "terrible," I mean ancient and powerful. It's changed how I see things. I've never believed I was worth anything... that what I said or did had any meaning. Maybe that's why I'm a spy. Or why I agreed to come here.
Coulson: If you're trying to talk me out of this, you can save your breath.
Ward: I'm not looking for mercy or absolution. I just want you to know, I've been where you are right now. Filled with rage, wanting revenge... I chose Hydra for petty, personal, selfish reasons... for a father figure, for vengeance... for closure. But what I saw today gave my life meaning. For the first time ever, I have a sense of satisfaction that I never experienced when I was seeking revenge.

The Inside Man

May: Great. Coulson's in trouble, this place is crawling with armed Hydra agents, and we have no weapons.
Hunter: Not strictly true. [reveals batons and guns he was hiding in a serving tray] Buon appetito.
Bobbi: I love you.
May: I don't hate you quite as much.

Parting Shot

Hunter: Bobbi and I were on holiday picking mushrooms...
Inspector Duval: In the woods of Siberia in the dead of winter.
Hunter: Do you know a better place to find the jumbo chaga mushroom? Because I certainly do not.
Duval: You were caught with a weapon standing over a dead man.
Hunter: An unfortunate circumstance.


Mack: [observing the imploded building] Do we take this to bring back with us? Study it?
Fitz: Uh, yeah, sure. Have you been working out? 'Cause it weighs, like, 100,000 tons. It's a building.
Mack: So... no, then.



Simmons: You think I'm not romantic? I'm gonna do something with you on that island that will take your breath away.
Fitz: What is... eh... are... are you... what?
Simmons: Snorkelling!

Daisy: When Hive takes over a body, he steals that person's memories. That's as close to stealing a soul as you can get.
Mack: "Memory is the scribe of the soul."
Daisy: The Bible?
Mack: Aristotle. What? I have dimensions.


Hive: You know, killing me won't make the pain go away. Or will it? I can't remember.
Daisy: I don't want you to die. I want you to suffer.

Coulson: Now all we have to do is decide who goes and who stays to hold off a wave of primates and Hive the Terrible.
Mack: Well, I'd like to be in the fight. [pulls out shotgun-axe] Built this damn thing for a reason.

Lincoln: Well, I got to see the world.
Hive: It's beautiful. Smaller than you imagine.
Lincoln: Yeah.
Hive: I only wanted to make it better.
Lincoln: I know.
Hive: To feel a connection. But you must feel that already. To sacrifice for them...with all their flaws.
Lincoln: They're only human.

    Season 4 

The Ghost

Daisy: You don't get to decide who deserves to die.
Robbie: I'm not the one who decides.

Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire

James: [Robbie catches James' flaming chain] I don't know who the hell you are, but you just made a big mistake.
Robbie: Funny, I was gonna say the same thing, without the accent.

The Good Samaritan

Robbie: Now this is the part I never told you, the thing I try to hide. When I was thrown from the car I begged God, I begged the universe, I begged anyone who would listen that you be spared. I swore that I'd give anything to save you.
Daisy: Don't stop there. Then what?
Robbie: Well then I hit the street, and I died. Then there's nothing. It's just darkness. Then I heard a voice. It was asking me if I wanted a second chance, did I want to punish those who hurt my brother? Did I want to avenge my own death? I answered yes, more than anything, yes. I was alive again. And you're right, there was someone there when I came to, but it wasn't a Good Samaritan, it was the Devil. Whatever was inside him, he passed it into me.
Gabriel Reyes: Ghost Rider.

Lucy Bauer: Am I supposed to be afraid of you?
Robbie: My uncle is Eli Morrow.
Lucy: Of course. I've seen your picture. You're his nephew, Gabriel. Like the angel.
Robbie: No. [his eyes light up with fire] I'm the other one.

Deals With Our Devils

Radcliffe: I'm building an inter-dimensional gateway with an android I've created. If this works, I could die happy.
May: We've put our faith in a robot who says she hears ghosts. If it fails, you might die quickly.

Broken Promises

Mack: Radcliffe built a humanoid robot that's about to attack the base.
Yo-Yo: Why would he do that? Has he watched no American movies from the Eighties? Robots always attack.
Mack: I've been saying that all day.
Yo-Yo: Smart people are stupid.
Mack: Alright, gear up. The robot apocalypse is finally here.

Wake Up

AIDA: [entering the room] Hello, Agent May. [May turns around] Congratulations, you got further this time than your previous attempts at this course.
May: What is this?
AIDA: We call it "The Framework." Your journey to escape Dr. Radcliffe's lab, our fight, all of this, is a simulation. I assure you, you're safe, we've moved you to another location.
May: You've put this in my head.
AIDA: Dr. Radcliffe knew the best way to keep you busy was to give you something to fight.
May: Something like you.
AIDA: Yes, but this is the program's end. We're coding more, but we can't keep up with you. You keep getting through it faster. I'll wipe your memory and send you through again.
May: You wipe my memory, but I get better every time.
AIDA: Yes, memory traces.
May: So I'm beating it, and I'll get out eventually, beat you.

Hot Potato Soup

Terrence Shockley: The one who comes in this room next won't be me. The man who comes in here will do things to you that I can't even watch. He will break you.
Billy Koenig: Yeah, well, Koenigs don't break. All right? We're programmed to take pain, so bring it on! Bring it on! [Shockley leaves] Oh, my God. I'm in so much pain. I don't think I can take this. That guy hits really hard.

Self Control

Simmons: So, we fight our way through the trained military personnel, then the ultra-powerful android doubles of our friends, somehow make it to the Zephyr, which we can't fly, to escape the base and try to plug our minds into an alternate reality.
Daisy: Okay, well, don't say it out loud, because that made it sound way worse. Let's just keep it one thing at a time, okay?

LMD Coulson: [enters room to see LMD May by herself] I thought you said you had them. May? What did you do?
LMD May: What I wanted to.
LMD Coulson: Okay. Everything's under control. Let's just–
LMD May: Whose control?
LMD Coulson: Why don't you and I have a glass of Scotch, or many, and talk this out, like we always do?
LMD May: "We"? We've never done that before. You were right. Our programming is different. Are you afraid to die? 'Cause I am. I know I'm not real. I'm all phantom limbs. But that doesn't make the pain less real.
LMD Coulson: You don't have to feel pain.
LMD May: You say you don't anymore. But that pain, that regret: that's what made you a person... a person I love. My programming was to get the Darkhold. That came from Radcliffe. But my impulse, to keep Coulson safe and close, that desire... that came from me.
LMD Coulson: That's good.
LMD May: And I'm sorry to say, you're not him. [triggers the explosives she's holding]

What If?

Daisy: Wait, are you still dead?
Simmons: No, I'm feeling much better.

Simmons: So, you're Hydra, and you've been protecting Skye?
Ward: Yeah. That's why I joined the Resistance.
Simmons: Oh, always the double agent. [to Daisy] And this is who you woke up with? You two were together? Oh, this isn't the Framework. This is Hell.

Daisy: Please, remember me!
Coulson: I'm sorry, I don't.
Daisy: It's not your fault. It's just... you're the person who I go to when things get heavy. And this world is scary, and nothing makes sense, and you're the closest thing I have to family. So I just hoped that deep down you'd feel it too.
Coulson: ...Daisy?

No Regrets

Daisy: She said she took away one regret. One regret can't change an entire life. It doesn't change who you are.
Radcliffe: Of course it can. One person in your life, one decision, one sentence has the power to change you forever.
Daisy: One sentence?
Radcliffe: Yeah, that's right. One single sentence, like "I love you" or "We're having a baby" or "She's gone."
Daisy: I just... I didn't think Fitz is capable of doing something like that.
Radcliffe: Oh my dear, depending on the circumstances, anyone is capable of anything.

All the Madame's Men

Coulson: [broadcasting on National television] Good evening. As you all know, a Hydra facility was destroyed yesterday. Hydra told you that it was an act of terrorism. They told you an Inhuman named The Patriot murdered civilians. What they told you was a lie. We're going to show you what really happened. [rolls footage from May's body-cam] This footage was taken from the body-cam of a high-level Hydra operative. Hydra used this "enlightenment center" to brainwash anyone who dared to question them. Jeffrey Mace saved these people, but Hydra was willing to kill them just to maintain their lie. Once you see this footage, the truth is undeniable. Hydra doesn't think we're smart enough to know when we're being fed alternative facts, to keep us afraid, to keep them in power. Remember, there are more of us than there are of them. And now that we know the truth, we have a choice to make. We all have the opportunity to be Patriots, will you take a stand? Are you going to hold them accountable? Throughout history we've seen empires rise and fall–
Agent Burrows: [at the broadcasting studio] There are people outside. [Bakshi smiles and Ward picks up his pistol] No, they're not Hydra. I think they're here to help us fight.
Coulson: –wise man once told me that a person can do anything once they realize they're a part of something bigger. It's taking me a while to understand that. For years I was just a face in the crowd, a history teacher who spread Hydra's lies. They seemed too imposing for any one person to fight. But now... I'm choosing to stand up, to become a part of something bigger. I really do believe that together we can accomplish anything. Because the truth is... I'm not just a history teacher. My name is Phil Coulson, and I'm an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

World's End

Coulson: General, I'm relieved that you're still alive.
Talbot: Three of my finest aren't so fortunate, and I have no idea what killed them.
Coulson: We lost good people, too. The short answer is they were murdered by a vanishing banshee made out of matter from another dimension.
Talbot: You expect me to put that in my report?
Coulson: I have a cybernetic hand. I've been to an another planet. This happens in S.H.I.E.L.D.

Coulson: So you're saying Aida is made out the same stuff that made the Darkhold?
Robbie: Yeah. And the Rider wants to send them both back to where they came from.
Daisy: I hope that means hell.
Robbie: Hell is relative. Dimensions, space, planets - it's all connected. Plenty of them qualify as hell. The Earth is just one territory in a war that's been going on forever.

Radcliffe: [pouring himself a whiskey, sitting on the beach at sunset] This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but a– [vanishes]

    Season 5 

Orientation Part 1 & 2

Coulson: Well, I don't have many details, but I do know we're in space.
Mack: Yeah, that makes sense. That's one thing we haven't done yet.

Simmons: Fury never said anything about deep space outposts being developed, did he?
Coulson: There was nothing like this in his black box.
Yo-Yo: So, wait, S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't have a space division called S.P.E.A.R. or something?
Coulson: [shakes head]
Yo-Yo: Really? I always thought you guys had people hiding on the moon.

Coulson: We should split up.
Mack: Oh, hell no. We are sticking together, one hundred percent. Have you never seen an Alien movie?
Daisy: Mack, it's the best way to cover the most ground.
Mack: Okay... okay, you see, that's exactly what they see before they get picked off one by one. And you know who the first one will be.

May: So we'll have to find our own way back.
Simmons: Well, I'm a biologist, but sure I can invent time travel. Just give me a minute.


Hunter: [Ghost Rider's] the strangest thing I've ever heard. Except for the sexy robot that you made that became human and wanted you to stick the old...
Fitz: Please.
Hunter: ...floppy into her love drive.
Fitz: Can we not talk about this, please?
Hunter: Copy that. Message received. Well, my life has been perfectly boring by comparison. Mercenary work, working with unscrupulous dirtbags like Rusty.
Fitz: How are things with Bobbi?
Hunter: Good. Yeah. We're 100% compatible... 50% of the time. Nearly got married again, until the ninjas showed up.
Fitz: So... you are together?
Hunter: Together forever, just... doing our own thing. Distance is our savior. How about you and Simmons? Did you find a way to work it out?
Fitz: Distance is our curse.

Fun & Games

Fitz: I'm never leaving you again.
[They kiss. Fitz ICEs Sinara.]
Simmons: Then marry me, Fitz.
Fitz: Absolutely.
[FitzSimmons help a concussed Daisy stand up]
Simmons: Okay, come on.
Fitz: Also, um, just to say, I did propose earlier, when Kasius had your hearing turned off.
Simmons: [sarcastically] Oh, of course you did.
Fitz: No, I... Seriously, I did.

Together or Not At All

Enoch: My name is Enoch. Fitz sent me.
May: Fitz? How were you not eaten by those things?
Enoch: They have no interest in me, as I have no tender insides for them to extract.
May: [angrily] I thought Fitz was done building robots.
Enoch: I am not a robot. I am a sentient Chronicom from the constellation you know as Cygnus. I am here to aid you, you who will save humanity: Melinda May, Jemma Simmons, Phillip J. Coulson...

Fitz: Okay, if you guys really are gonna go fight a bunch of alien warriors, then you might be interested to know that, in the past, I hid a crate of S.H.I.E.L.D. tech in a wall on the base.
Mack: Oh, that's what I'm talking about. Thanks, Turbo.
Yo-Yo: Where?
Fitz: Level three.
Mack: Oh, you got to be kidding me.
Yo-Yo: You mean the level infested with aliens that suck your blood?
Fitz: Well, how was I... I feel like I'm not getting enough credit here. I have traveled through time and space to find you. I think we're moving past that bit a little bit too quickly.

Best Laid Plans

Coulson: An old woman tells you that she was your daughter and that you'll save the planet from cracking apart. Doesn't happen every day.
May: It's hard to believe.
Coulson: That we can do it?
May: That... I was a mom. I just... I can't see it.
Coulson: I can.
Daisy: Yeah. You'd be that no phone, no TV, 7:30 curfew kind of mom. [May scowls] You're kind of... proving my point with the face.

Past Life

Deke: Guns, man! It's like cheating! They shouldn't give these to anyone that's not a really, really good person.
May: You think there'd be a law.

All the Comforts of Home

Fitz: What are you observing now?
Noah: Various potential threats. You'd be surprised how frequently S.H.I.E.L.D. is mentioned.
May: We have a small but active fan base.

May: Hey, could be worse.
Simmons: True. We could be enslaved by an alien sociopath in a dystopian future.
Mack: Or we could be trapped inside a virtual-reality fascist state.
Fitz: Or stuck at the bottom of the ocean.
Yo-Yo: Or stopping a crazy robot lady.
Simmons: Or falling out of a plane.
Mack: Fighting Daisy's mom.
Coulson: Or fighting Daisy's dad.
May: Or dancing.

Daisy: I thought you'd be, like, emotionally distraught or something.
Deke: Emotionally distraught? This is awesome! I thought that I was gonna die. But instead, I'm about to go for a walk outside. Also, there is "an outside." I was walking here, and, yes, I was pretty drunk, but I... I saw in a store window there was these green apples and steaks and these... and these things called gummy bears. You know what people aren't eating here is sterilization pellets. I love this place so much.

The Real Deal

Coulson: The last thing you need is to waste your time on another lost cause.
May: Who I waste my time on is for me to decide.

Mike Peterson: Nightmare? This whole thing has been a dream. And every time the dream is too random or doesn't reconcile with a memory, your mind creates a scenario to make it work.
Coulson: See, now you're losing me.
Mike Peterson: What does that even mean? You really think your skull is caught on fire, Phil? Or does it hurt to have electrodes on your scalp for this long? You think there was an alternate reality where you were a history teacher? Or were you remembering your father, who was a history teacher?
Coulson: Okay, stop.
Mike Peterson: You're reliving mementos of your life mixed with the dreams you wish had come true.
Coulson: No, Mike. This is fear. I thought I'd come to terms with death, but this is my fear of it manifesting, because it's harder to let go of than I thought it would be.
Mike Peterson: Yes. You're struggling to let go. At least now you admit you're dying. What's the hardest part?
Coulson: The life I have yet to live.
Mike Peterson: And that's why your mind created this story, where you spent years doing all the things you never got a chance to do... to vacation on a white beach with blue water. To travel to the stars. To own your own plane, a car that flies, your own team. To have a family. The brilliant students you never got a chance to mentor. The daughter you never had. And above all, a chance to be a hero. You said it yourself, Coulson. It matters who you are.

Coulson: Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today for a moment we all knew was coming, some of us even before these two did, and I think we can all agree that to wait even one second to do this is playing with fire. All in favor?
Everyone: Aye.
Coulson: The ayes have it. So, all right. Time for the exchanging of the vows, I guess.
Simmons: [Pulls out a piece of paper] I had to write it down. Fitz. I knew from the moment I saw you, from our first conversation about dielectric polarization, that you'd be in my life for a long time. But I didn't know... you would be my life. My heart. My home. We joined this team for adventures and got more than we had hoped... but I can't wait for our next adventure... building a family together. My love for you grows deeper and always will, no matter where the universe takes us next.
Coulson: Agent Fitz?
Fitz: Um. Okay. Um. I have been thinking about what to say. Uh. Just... Words don't really seem enough. Here. I think that you are perfect. And, um... I don't deserve you, Jemma. I don't. I don't deserve you. And I'm well-aware that I'm the luckiest man on any planet.
Coulson: Okay. Let's have the rings. Quickly, please, before this forest collapses around us. Okay, Fitz, repeat after me. "With this ring..."
Fitz: With this ring...
Coulson: ...I thee wed.
Fitz: ...I thee wed.

Deathlok: So, you got the rings, huh? It's a nice one.
Deke: Turns out a lot of people pawn wedding rings. I had to find one that was gonna be small enough for his little-boy fingers. And then, for hers, found this ring that looks just like this one that my mom used to wear sometimes. It was my grandma's, I think.

The Devil Complex

Simmons: How long have you been seeing him?
Fitz: My mind's been through a lot. Been hearing him for a while now. Since we left the Framework. Only just started seeing him.
Simmons: It's your injury acting up. You used to see me, too, when I wasn't there.
Fitz: You were my conscience.
Simmons: Then what was he? You had a psychic split. But that dark persona, that's not you.
Fitz: It is me. It's not an apparition. It's not some evil doppelganger. It. Was. Me.

Rise and Shine

Fitz: He's my... our... grandson?
Simmons: Yeah.
Fitz: But... he's the worst.
Simmons: I think he's perfect. Plus, his very existence proves that you and I make it to the Lighthouse... and live long enough to raise a daughter. Do you see what this means?
Fitz: Yeah, I do. It means that our daughter's obviously gonna marry some belligerent space goon if she's gonna give birth to a Deke?
Simmons: No, Fitz. It means you and I are invincible.

Inside Voices

Coulson: General Hale. I know you're bummed the whole team-up thing isn't gonna happen. But it still seems kind of petty, taking away my cot... my chair... and my Cap'n Crunch. That last one really hurt. And you're gonna destroy the Earth, so...

The Honeymoon

Fitz: [To Yo-Yo] We have a rule.
Simmons: We never leave each other's side anymore.
Fitz: [To Simmons] I'm sorry you never got the honeymoon you dreamed of.
Simmons: Nonsense. I'm protecting England from evil robots with the man I love.

All Roads Lead...

Deke: Just for grins, say I were interested... in someone... anyone. How would I... Like, you got a good thing going.
Mack: Don't look at me. Last time I saw Yo-Yo, she lied to me, locked me up, and ran off.
Deke: Coulson?
Coulson: Sorry, bro. Apparently, I'm incapable of expressing my feelings or letting people take care of me.
Deke: You guys are useless. It's lemons, then.
Coulson: Come again?
Deke: Well, in my day, when you wanted to tell someone how you felt, you'd just save up your tokens, you'd buy a lemon, you leave it on their bunk. That's... That's a thing here, right?
Coulson: ...One hundred percent.
Mack: Oh, yeah, absolutely.
Coulson: When in doubt, get a bunch of lemons.

The Force of Gravity

Coulson: That's the same writing that was in the Lighthouse in the future. What's it say, Deke?
Deke: How would I know?
Coulson: Because you lived there.
Deke: Well, they don't teach you the language. I can count to five.
Coulson: You lived there for decades, and you know five numbers?!
Deke: [defensively] I also know "zero", so no, I know six numbers!
May: I'm amazed you were able to survive.

Qovas: You have just sealed the fate of everyone in your base. And now you will die. [launches missiles]
May: Well, one little thing. We changed the target. Told ya I didn't need a gun to stop you.
Qovas: [sees the missiles heading right back toward his ship] How?
Deke: I know "zero".

The End

Mack: Remember how good it felt to walk in here when we first got back? The Zephyr has been the one place we've been able to call home these last few years.
Daisy: I'll always miss the Bus.
May: Me, too.
Elena: I wish I would've known you guys back then.
Simmons: We were different people back then.
Coulson: I spent a lot of years, sorry. I've lived a life surrounded by heroes. None bigger than all of you. Since the day you joined, same as anyone in the line of duty. Heroes, because you, because we sign up to lose each other. To get close to good people and have them taken away. We've all suffered losses. Never lose sight of that.
Daisy: I never forget those we've lost.
May: That's right.
Mack: Yeah. That's why we're putting that badge up in the cockpit. To never forget.
Coulson: You don't have to forget. But you have to move on.
Simmons: No. With respect, sir, you're wrong. We don't move on. We hold that place in our heart, we close it off, we lock the door, we visit from time to time, but we don't move on. Even after we say goodbye.
