    Magnus Bane: Those are a lot of air quotes. 
  2. Izzy Lightwood: Wait. You should be there.
    Magnus Bane: Hm-mm…
    Izzy Lightwood: Think about it: if Magnus is there being his usual charming self… Mom won’t have time to interrogate us.

    Raphael Santiago: Oh, no. He… he did! He did. He couldn’t say why. And it broke his heart to leave. And he promised you if you ever felt lonely, all you had to do is look up at those stars… and know that your big brother was out there, thinking of you. 
  5. Magnus Bane (to Alec): You’re a sweet man, Alexander. And so adorable with radish in your hair. 
  6. Alec Lightwood: Remember, my mother is on edge and that means avoiding any sensitive subjects, like my dad, or like that I turned down that job at the Clave.

  9. Alec Lightwood: If you’re not going to fight this thing, I will. Even if that means stepping down from the Institute.
