Isabelle Lightwood: I know you’re obnoxious and stubborn…
Alec Lightwood: I hope you’re going somewhere with this.
Isabelle Lightwood: But you’re also loyal and honest and a big old softie when you stop worrying about what people are thinking about you. One day, somebody’s gonna love you, heart and soul. If you walk away from Jace, you might never find another parabatai. Is that really a risk you’re willing to take?
Isabelle Lightwood: Look… you know he’s not hurt. Otherwise, you would have felt something, right?
Alec Lightwood: I don’t feel anything, Izzy. That’s what scares me.
Isabelle Lightwood: Alec, the ship is glamoured. It won’t show up on the sonar.
Alec Lightwood: Well, it can’t hide from us if we run right into it.
Isabelle Lightwood: It’s a pretty big ocean out there.
Alec Lightwood (to Clary): Since you’ve arrived, you’ve caused nothing but problems. My family lost their birthright. Izzy was almost deruned. And now Valentine has my parabatai. And it’s all because of you. When are you gonna realize you don’t belong here? You never have.
Alec Lightwood: Magnus. I’m not good at apologies… But I’m… I’m sorry.
Magnus Bane: Continue.
Alec Lightwood: I’m… Really sorry.
Magnus Bane: For?
Alec Lightwood: Look, can you just cut that out for a second? (doing magic) You were right. When I called off my wedding, that was for me. But this is all just… It’s very new.
Magnus Bane: This may surprise you, but you’re new for me, too.
Alec Lightwood: Look, with Jace missing, it’s just like… The ground has shifted, and I can’t keep my balance. Just… I didn’t mean to take it out on you. I’m sorry.
Magnus Bane: You’re forgiven. Also… You’re great at apologies.
Alec Lightwood: Thanks. I’ve been working on it.
Maryse Lightwood: Alec, we looked like fools taking in Valentine’s son, caring for him like our own.
Alec Lightwood: It was the right thing to do.
Maryse Lightwood: It was a mistake. It put our family in danger. You need to forget Jace. He made his choice.
Alec Lightwood: Do you even hear what you’re saying? If you kill him, you kill a part of me.
Maryse Lightwood: When you have a cancer, you cut it out before it destroys you. Son… Life is full of hard choices.
Alec Lightwood: Don’t kid yourself. You’re not making a hard choice. You’re saving your own ass. And unlike you, I don’t push someone away just ’cause they’re a hard choice.
Magnus Bane: I know you don't want to hear it, so I'll just say it once. Whatever I felt for Camille, it's ancient history. Almost literally.
Alec Lightwood: Yeah, but what she said about you being immortal... she's right. You watch the people you care about age and die.
Magnus Bane: Alexander... I may be the High Warlock of Brooklyn, but... even I can't see the future.
Alec Lightwood: I might be able to ask Magnus for help.
Jace Wayland: You need to stop thinking with your stele, Alec.
Alec Lightwood: I just wanna make sure Lydia's okay. Now I owe her so much.
Magnus Bane: We owe her. What she did was nothing short of heroic.
Simon Lewis: Guys, that was incredible. It was like watching the live version of The Graduate. You know, the Dustin Hoffman movie? The amazing one? You were Ben. Elaine! And you were Elaine. I mean, a... a taller, masculine, handsome version of her. But at the altar, though, you were like... Ben! And then... and then now, you're both sitting on the bus at the end of the movie, both totally stoked, but wondering, like... "What're we gonna do now?" You know?
Alec Lightwood: Who invited the vampire?
Magnus Bane: Just tell me you're in love with Lydia, and I'll stop.
Alec Lightwood: I don't know. Why do you keep pushing? You're confusing me.
Magnus Bane: Confusion is part of it. That's how you find out if something's there. Emotions are never black and white. They're more like symptoms. You lose your breath every time they enter a room. Your heart beats faster when they walk by. Your skin tingles when they stand close enough to feel their breath. I know you feel what I feel, Alec.
