Magnus Bane: When I was tortured in Valentine's body, that agony rune made me relive my worst memory. And now... I can't get it out of my head. Every time I close my eyes...
Alec Lightwood: Hey... What is it?
Magnus Bane: Remember I told you how I found my mother dead by her own hand? My stepfather found me shortly after. He screamed at me. He called me an abomination.
Alec Lightwood: What?
Magnus Bane: He was right. He blamed me for her suicide. He said that she hated herself for giving birth to a monster. So I lashed out. With all the magic I had. I burned him, Alexander. Right where he stood. I murdered my stepfather.
Alec Lightwood: You were just a boy. You weren't in control of your powers.
Magnus Bane: Yes, actually, I was.
Alec Lightwood: This is like the fourth morning in a row that I've woken up to an empty bed. Is there something bothering you?
Magnus Bane: Nothing is bothering me. I've even gotten used to your adorable little snores.
Dot Rollins: My life would be a boring tragedy without you.
Magnus Bane: It would indeed. (Dot tries to kiss him, Magnus stops her) I'm sorry...
Dot Rollins: Don't be.
Magnus Bane: I'm in love with Alec.
Dot Rollins: I know.
Magnus Bane: I just...
Dot Rollins: Had a moment.
Magnus Bane: And a bottle of whiskey. You are incredibly beautiful, Dot. And soulful. Generous. But... I'm afraid I've always been a one-soul-at-a-time kind of guy.
Dot Rollins: Alec's lucky to have you.
Magnus Bane (to Alec): That agony rune... made me relive memories I've spent... centuries trying to forget.
Raphael Santiago (about Izzy): There’s something about her… I haven’t felt this way in a long time.
Magnus Bane: You’re so hooked on her blood, you can’t separate your feelings from your addiction.
Raphael Santiago: Isabelle and I are no different from you and Alec. And I thought you of all people would understand.
Magnus Bane: If you truly believe that… see if you still feel the same when you’re not getting high.
Magnus Bane: La Chair Brulee.
Clary Fray: I’m guessing that’s not a dessert.
Magnus Bane: It means “the burnt flesh.” It’s an old blood oath spell.
Clary Fray: Magnus, what happens if we don’t find your spell book?
Magnus Bane: That’s not an option you want to explore. That book can undo every spell I’ve ever cast. From the elementary to the complex.
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.
