Alec Lightwood: Magnus is not dead. He is in Edom.
Maryse Lightwood: We both know that he can't ever come back home. The rift would reopen and all of Edom would come back with him.
Alec Lightwood: I'm going to find a way. And I'm going to get him back. I have a wedding to plan.
Magnus Bane: Is the Lightwood family ring supposed to mean something to me?
Maryse Lightwood: It would if he had given it to you the other night at dinner when he planned to.
Magnus Bane: Oh, my God... then... why break my heart?
Maryse Lightwood: Magnus, when exactly did your magic return?
(Realization hits Magnus's face)
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.
Maryse Lightwood: What?
Luke Garroway: Nothing. I just...
Maryse Lightwood: What?
Luke Garroway: I just haven't seen you let your hair down, literally, since the Accords Ball in Idris.
Maryse Lightwood: That was 20 years ago.
Luke Garroway: Was that 20 years ago?
Maryse Lightwood: Yeah.
Luke Garroway: Well, you look just as lovely now as you did then.
Izzy Lightwood: Why don't I believe you? Mama, we said no more secrets. Remember? You don't have to hide how you feel.
Maryse Lightwood: I feel so lost. Like I don't know who I am anymore. Look at me... It's like they were never even there. (talking about runes)
Izzy Lightwood: You're still you. Still strong, and brave and beautiful.
Maryse Lightwood: But no longer a Shadowhunter. I don't know what I'm supposed to do now.
Izzy Lightwood: You're not alone. You have four kids that love you more than anything.
Alec Lightwood: If you're not going to fight this thing, I will. Even if that means stepping down from the Institute.
Maryse Lightwood: No. Seeing what you have accomplished as Head of the Institute... nothing has made me prouder. The Clave's always had its faults. My generation nearly destroyed everything in our passion to fix it. Yours will have to be wiser.
Maryse Lightwood: Alec and Isabelle made this for me when they were little kids. To see the looks on their faces when they brought it to me... It still warms my heart. But that stew! I still have nightmares!
Isabelle Lightwood: I'm in recovery now. I'm gonna be okay.
Maryse Lightwood: I am so sorry. This is all my fault.
Isabelle Lightwood: No, Mama. It's mine.
Maryse Lightwood: I've been so hard on you. Put so much pressure. Of course you needed a release... Sometimes our angelic duty seems to... overshadow everything else. We forget we're human, too.
Isabelle Lightwood: Mom, you deserve to be happy.
Maryse Lightwood: So do you. Despite this, despite everything, I hope you don't give up on love. I hope you fight for it, like your brother.
Maryse Lightwood (to Alec): I wanted to congratulate you on the promotion. I'm so pleased to see the Lightwoods back in command. I always knew this was your destiny. When you were little, I'd find you in here, sitting behind your father's desk, writing out your own memos in crayon. Well... here you are. Your father and I couldn't be prouder.
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.
Maryse Lightwood (to Izzy about Seelies): Never trust a people who can’t lie. They find much more inventive ways to stab you in the back.
Maryse Lightwood: Isabelle, we stay separate from the Downworld for good reasons. The wrong move, the wrong word… Do you think there is such a thing as harmless rebellion? Who knows what offends these creatures Maybe you told him… them… something they shouldn’t know. Maybe you trod on one of their ridiculous customs without knowing it. When someone upsets the natural order, everything falls apart.
