  2. Maia Roberts: Next time, I get to control the steering of the paddle boat.
    Simon Lewis: Those ducks are gonna be fine, I told you!
    Maia Roberts: Only because they narrowly missed you at the last second!
    Simon Lewis: Well, you know, I was helping them! Um… I was… I was honing their survival skills. Ducks are getting very lazy these days!

    (Flashback/Bonus scene from episode 1×06) 
  5. Magnus Bane: Relax. My reputation’s on the line just as much as yours. I’d lose all my credibility if my people found out that I let a Shadowhunter spend the night.

    Magnus Bane: Trust makes you do strange things. Must be something in the air.

    (Flashback/Bonus scene from 2×07) 
  12. Alec Lightwood: You’re an all-powerful warlock who can summon demons. You’ve lived through centuries of war. And you’re immortal. What scares you?
