Skye: When I see you next, who are you gonna be? You got a clean slate. You can be anyone you want.
Grant Ward: I don't know. Maybe Tom Brady. I always wanted to play quarterback.
Skye: And date supermodels. You are so predictable.
Grant Ward: No, I mean the guy seems to have things pretty worked out.
Skye: Be careful.
Grant Ward: You, too.
John Garrett: Tom Brady? You hate the Patriots.
Grant Ward: The Agent Grant Ward she knows doesn't.
John Garrett (laughs): Yeah, that straight version of you is something else. I don't even think Romanoff could pull that one.
Phil Coulson: How we doing on supplies?
Jemma Simmons: We're well-stocked up on medical, but I'm afraid our food rations will only last a couple of days at best.
Phil Coulson: Perfect.
Antoine Triplett: Bad news.
Phil Coulson: No kidding.
Antoine Triplett: Fuel line's busted. We're leaking.
Phil Coulson: Can we fix it?
Antoine Triplett: Sure, as soon as we touch down.
Phil Coulson: Awesome. Skye, please, tell me something good.
Skye: We have Internet.
Phil Coulson: Yay. And, boy, have I lowered my expectations.
(Coulson is speaking with Glenn Talbot on a video call...)
Glenn Talbot: I'm sending in a peacekeeping force. They're gonna take control.
Phil Coulson: Understood. What should I tell my men to expect?
Glenn Talbot: We just wanna ask a few questions. Get the lay of the land. Everything checks out, you and your boys can be on your merry.
Phil Coulson: Sounds good.
(The video call disconnects...)
Phil Coulson: This doesn't sound good.
Skye: He's lying definitely for sure.
Raina: You're not clairvoyant?
John Garrett: Hardly. But if it's any consolation, you weren't alone in believing, not by a long shot.
Raina: So you're a liar? You're a fraud?
John Garrett: An artist. A con artist perhaps, but an artist all the same. Had to pull the wool over S.H.I.E.L.D.'s eyes somehow. To do what we set out to do. Remember what that was?
Raina: To change the world.
Victoria Hand: I'll find Agent Garrett the smallest, darkest cell in the Ice Box.
Grant Ward: I'd like to turn the key on that cell myself. If you don't mind, sir. He was my S.O. I feel I should've known. It's my duty to...
Phil Coulson: No one knew. I didn't know. That's how he beat us. By being a friend.
(Agents come into the room...)
Phil Coulson: Take Agent Garrett into custody! He's the murderer they call The Clairvoyant. He's a traitor!
John Garrett: Gentlemen. I know Agent Sitwell was in charge of filling your ranks, so at least a few of you know what to do in this situation. Anytime, boys. (some of the agents kill the others) Hail HYDRA.
Rogue agents: Hail HYDRA!
Grant Ward: Look, I know I'm not that guy. I'm too locked down, too boring, but...
Skye: When we make it out of this, yes, let's have a drink. (kisses Ward) You said you might die, so, what the hell?
Grant Ward: Lock the door behind me.
(Ward takes down more than 10 agents outside the room and comes back...)
Skye: Hey. You should really look up the word "boring" in a dictionary.
Phil Coulson: I gave you a second chance when I assembled this team.
Melinda May: I assembled this team.
Phil Coulson: What?
Melinda May: I evaluated what was needed and I gave the assessment to Fury, and he gave you the parameters for your unit.
Phil Coulson: What was needed, May?
Melinda May: Someone who could repair your body, a technician who could reprogram your brain, and a specialist to help me put you down if it had to be done. But I didn't do it for Fury. I did it for you. To protect you. I... You mean a lot to me. A lot. To hear you were dead... You may not believe me, but that's the truth.
Leo Fitz: I thought HYDRA was defeated after World War II.
Phil Coulson: It was. S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded in the wake of that victory.
Leo Fitz: And now they're back?
John Garrett: HYDRA always comes back.
Phil Coulson: Cut off a head, two more will take its place.
John Garrett: Is it a head? I thought it was a limb.
