Izzy Lightwood: They killed one of their own. They've tortured Downworlders because of this, and you wanna turn a blind eye?
Alec Lightwood: You didn't raise us like that.
Maryse Lightwood: I raised you to survive.
Alec Lightwood: Why didn't you tell me?
Izzy Lightwood: Because... I didn't want you to look at me the way you're looking at me now.
Alec Lightwood: Like what?
Izzy Lightwood: Like I'm weak.
Alec Lightwood: I wish I was half as strong as you on your weakest day. What? You can beat anyone or anything.
Izzy Lightwood: Except for this. It's always gonna be there, like a shadow, just waiting for me to let my guard down.
Alec Lightwood: I did some reading about those mundane groups you go to. This isn't your fight, it's ours. No one does this alone. Izzy, look, I know you've heard all that before. Just... Please be honest with the people who care about you. Whether it's vampire venom or uncovering Clave conspiracies... I'm here with you, every step of the way.
Alec Lightwood: This whole mortality thing is gonna take some getting used to.
Magnus Bane: Perhaps more than I realized. I've been lucky to live a life relatively free of FOMO. Can't blame me for wanting to make each moment count.
Alec Lightwood: Of course not. It's just... the thing about moments is that you'll miss them if you're always running after the next one. When I'm 90, I'm not gonna remember the trendy gallery or the amazing Greek food we had if we don't slow down... and savor moments like these. When I'm staring into the eyes of the man that I love.
Magnus Bane: Of course. Everything I need is right here in front of me. Amazing how a twenty-something pup can teach an old man new tricks.
Alec Lightwood: Please don't try to make "pup" a thing...
Magnus Bane: I hope you're not offended if I continue my training elsewhere. It's more than a little distracting, wanting to kiss my instructor every five minutes.
Alec Lightwood: Yeah, no, that's probably a good idea.
Magnus Bane: Oh, I forgot to tell you. I trained with Grand Master Mitsuyo Maeda.
Alec Lightwood: Is that where you got your black belt in name-dropping?
Magnus Bane: Come on, pup. Time to rise and face the day.
Alec Lightwood: Pup?
Magnus Bane: Panda?
Alec Lightwood: No.
Magnus Bane: Okay.
Jace Herondale: You should have killed me when you had the chance, and Clary would still be here!
Alec Lightwood: Yeah, but she's not. And the way that you're acting... it's a disgrace to her memory. If I lost you... I'd be lost too.
Jace Herondale: I'm so sorry. You're right. I didn't... I didn't think of it like that.
Alec Lightwood: I have another way you can be helpful. (hans him a stele)
Simon Lewis: What am I gonna do with a steely?
Alec Lightwood: Stele.
Simon Lewis: I've heard it both ways.
Alec Lightwood: It's been hundreds of years since you banished your father. What makes you think he'll even listen to your request?
Magnus Bane: Let's just say he owes me one.
Alec Lightwood: For what happened with your mother?
Magnus Bane: That... and for everything in the years that followed. I was living on the streets. I didn't know who or what I was. Asmodeus took me in. Nurtured my darker impulses. And taught me the "proper" way to be a warlock.
Alec Lightwood: And why'd you listen to him?
Magnus Bane: Because he was the only one in the world with eyes like me. He was my father.
