    Simon Lewis: You were?
    Clary Fray: Of course. Simon, I… I couldn’t think of life without you.
  2. Magnus Bane: I was nine years old when my mother realized what my cat eyes meant. She couldn’t live with the fact that she bore the son of a demon. So she took her life.
  3. Magnus Bane (to Clary): Losing your mom, it’s not something you make better with magic. You just head straight into it and cry your eyes out.
  4. Jace Wayland (about Jocelyn): I thought I’d be able to get to know her. And she’d get more time to know me as more than just an experiment gone wrong. I… I just figured we’d get more time.

    Jace Wayland: Look, whatever just happened, let’s keep this to ourselves.
