"A friend of my dad's was at one of the camps. He used to come over to the house, and he and my dad used to shoot some pinochle. He said he once saw a guy at the camp kneeling and praying. He said, 'What are you doing?' The guy said he was thanking God. And my dad's friend said, 'What could you possibly be thanking God for?' He said, 'I'm thanking God for not making me like them.'"

Supergirl: But why?

Greyfield: Stop! I... I... I surrender! I surrender my forces to you! Th-there! You can't hurt me now! I am a prisoner of war! C-C-Captain Brenner would never hurt a prisoner! It's murder! If you kill me, you're as bad as me! You'll be just the same as me!
Lin: ...Huh. I guess you're right. -shoots him anyway-

"Don't be the monster they fear you are!"

Jean Grey: You've had a hard enough day, big man. Don't make me hurt you.
