(Seelie Queen forces Clary and Jace to kiss while they still think they're siblings...)
Jace Herondale: Was that good enough? Did that entertain you?
(Seelie Queen is smiling...)
Seelie Queen: We are quite entertained. But not, I think, so much as the both of you.
Jace Herondale: I can only assume, that mortal emotions amuse you because you have none of your own.
(Seelie Queen smiles no more...)
Clary Fairchild: If you just want to study a Shadowhunter, I won't be much use to you. I don't know anything about Shadowhunting. I hardly have any training. I'm the wrong person to pick.
Seelie Queen: In truth, Clarissa Morgenstern, you are precisely the right person. Thanks to the changes your father worked in you, you are not like other Shadowhunters. Your gifts are different.
Clary Fairchild: My gifts?
Seelie Queen: Yours is the gift of words that cannot be spoken, and your brother's is the Angel's own gift. Your father made sure of it, when your brother was a child and before you were ever born.
Seelie Queen: I am only curious. It is not often I have young Shadowhunters so close within my purview. Like us, you trace your ancestry to heaven; that intrigues me.
Jace Herondale: But unlike you, there is nothing of hell in us.
Seelie Queen: You are mortal; you age; you die. If that is not hell, pray tell me, what is?
Jace: You know how the bonds of family are, my lady. They cling as tightly as vines. And sometimes, like vines, they cling tightly enough to kill.
Seelie Queen: You would betray your own father for the sake of the Clave?
Jace: Even so, Lady.
Seelie Queen (laughs): Who would have thought, that Valentine's little experiments would turn on him?
Izzy Lightwood: Experiments?
Seelie Queen (to Jace): The Fair Folk are a people of secrets. Our own, and others'. Ask your father, when next you see him, what blood runs in your veins, Jonathan.
Jonathan Morgenstern: You want me to be your weapon.
Seelie Queen: I want you to be my king. Together, we will destroy the Shadowhunters and rule the earthly realm side by side.
Jonathan Morgenstern: I prefer to rule alone.
(Seelie Queen turns into the child version of herself...)
Seelie Queen: Please, Jonathan. Please. You wouldn't dare hurt a child. Have mercy.
Jonathan Morgenstern: Mercy is for humans. And I'm no longer human.
Lilith: You killed my Disciples. I killed your knights. I've come to see if you'd like to cut your losses.
Seelie Queen: I'm sorry for your pain, but I never ordered anyone to do harm to your people.
Lilith: Not directly, as always. But I don't have time for sleights of tongue. The vampire with the mark. You gave it to him because it's the only thing that can banish me. I want you to remove it.
Seelie Queen: I gave him the mark because he's a Daylighter. Seelies have always been the protectors of anything in nature that's special and unique.
Lilith: My son is special and unique. And I am his protector. The Mark of Cain. I want it gone.
Seelie Queen: There are certain things that I, too, want gone. Sadly, we don't always get what we want.
Valentine Morgenstern: I've come make you a deal.
Seelie Queen: Hah! What could you have that I would possibly want? (Valentine whispers something in her ear) Walk with me, won't you? It's such a lovely night.
Valentine Morgenstern: Though not so beautiful as what tomorrow may bring to the both of us.
