Victor Aldertree: I discovered Eva hiding in the basement. She was in shock, driven mad by grief. She couldn’t control herself, so she transformed. And attacked me. She would have killed me if I hadn’t used my seraph blade. Eva died in my arms.
Alec Lightwood: You killed her?
Victor Aldertree: I had no choice. Eva couldn’t control herself. That was her nature. Her wolf nature. That’s when I realized a Shadowhunter could never be with a Downworlder, no matter how strong our feelings might be.
Alec Lightwood: Supplying yin fen to a subordinate… An ex-field medic should know better.
Victor Aldertree: And you expect anyone to actually believe this ridiculous accusation?
Alec Lightwood: Who knows? Idris loves gossip. And you’re one Clave investigation away from treating frostbite on Wrangel Island. From now on, I’m calling the shots. Don’t ever threaten my family again.
Alec Lightwood: How would you feel about throwing a party?
Magnus Bane: Have you met me?
Alec Lightwood: It is for Max’s Rune Ceremony.
Magnus Bane: I think I’ll pass.
Alec Lightwood: What’s going on?
Max Lightwood: Mom doesn’t like you having a warlock boyfriend.
Alec Lightwood: And you?
Max Lightwood: Whatever, I don’t care.
Alec Lightwood: Seriously, why do they call it fatty tuna? I mean, that’s a little degrading.
Magnus Bane: Hmm, well… I don’t think obese tuna sounds any better.
Alec Lightwood: Wait, did you do your… thing?
Magnus Bane: Haven’t you heard the saying? “If you can’t find the one being hustled in the pool hall, then it’s probably you.”
Clary Fray: I haven’t decided yet, so don’t get too excited about throwing me a going away party.
Alec Lightwood: Honestly, I think you’ll like Idris. It’s amazing.
Clary Fray: Yeah? I bet that it’d be pretty amazing to get me out of your hair, huh?
Alec Lightwood: I didn’t say that. You did.
Alec Lightwood: Jace may have been the one who pulled me out, but I did feel you there. And it did make a difference. So… Thank you.
Magnus Bane: Thank you for not dying on me.
