Quote from Shadowhunters 2x20 - Alec Lightwood: Magnus, ever since our... fight, I... I can't... I can't think straight. Magnus Bane: Well, I can't do anything without thinking of you. Alec Lightwood: Magnus, I... I don't think I can live without you.

Ordered chronologically as they appear in the episode.

  1. Seelie Queen: Patience.
    Maia Roberts: Right… patience isn’t really my thing. 
  2. Magnus Bane (to Alec): I’ll seal the rift. But not because of you or the Shadowhunters. Because it’ll save lives. 
  3. Clary Fray: The angels would never be in favor of killing millions of innocent Downworlders along with demons.
    Malachi Dieudonné: When Raziel created the first Shadowhunter, there was no such thing as Downworlders. But over the centuries, disgusting half-breeds emerged. Warlocks, vampires, Seelies, werewolves. They banded together, grew more powerful. Finally they will be destroyed. And so will you. 
  4. Valentine Morgenstern (after killing Jace): Clarissa, I… I’m sorry. I had no choice. The two of you together are too dangerous. 
  5. Raziel: What is it you ask of me?
    Valentine Morgenstern: The immediate death of all evil-blooded creatures, demon and Downworlder alike, as well as the disloyal Shadowhunters… who protect them.
    Raziel: The destruction of the souled creatures of the Downworld, and of our own Nephilim? That is not Heaven’s wish. 
  6. Clary Fray: Valentine raised the Angel. I used the wish to bring you back.
    Jace Herondale: You could have had anything else in the world… and you chose me.
    Clary Fray: I don’t want anything else in the world.
    Jace Herondale: Bringing people back… there’s always a consequence.
    Clary Fray: Not this time. This is a miracle. OK? It’s… a gift. Granted by the Angel. 
  7. Quote from Shadowhunters 2x20 - Isabelle Lightwood: You know, I grew up surrounded by brothers, who I love with all my heart. But deep down, I've... always wanted a sister. Clary Fray: Me too.

  9. Quote from Shadowhunters 2x20 - Magnus Bane: I thought I had to choose, between you and the Downworld... but I don't. A wise man once told me... relationships take effort. Alec Lightwood: Yeah.
