Valentine Morgenstern (to Sebastian): I have always dreamed of creating the ultimate warrior, and now... that dream is a reality. You have always been my greatest creation, son. Always.
Sebastian Morgenstern: You always cared more about the Mortal Instruments than you did your own son.
Valentine Morgenstern: That's not true. Despite everything I've done, I have always... always cared about you.
Sebastian Morgenstern: Do not lie to me. If you truly, truly cared about me, you would have never sent me away.
Valentine Morgenstern: I made a mistake. It was Jace that was...
Sebastian Morgenstern: Shut up!
Valentine Morgenstern: The sword still compels the truth. Jonathan... not a day goes by that I don't think about you. Where I am not haunted by that decision I made. To send you to Edom.
Valentine Morgenstern: Why keep the Verlac boy's visage if you're weaker for it?
Sebastian Morgenstern: I think it rather suits me. Don't you? As does the accent. A bit more... charming than a demonic beast with burnt flesh.
Sebastian Morgenstern (about Edom): I'm afraid it's not a very nice place. The first day I was there, they started burning my skin. Just one layer at a time. They said I was too pretty for their world... Too human. So they made me hideous. But they also taught me how to use my demon blood... how to... draw from its power. See, I may be grotesque in my own skin, but... with it I have power that you could only dream of.
Valentine Morgenstern: I may be in a cell, but at least I'll be in Alicante... where the air doesn't reek of Downworlders.
Simon Lewis: I need time.
Clary Fray: How much time?
Simon Lewis: I'm not sure.
Clary Fray: Well... Whenever you're ready. I will be here. Always.
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.
Clary Fray: If it's true, if Simon did somehow lose control and make some horrible mistake, we can't just give up on him.
Luke Garroway: Look, whatever mess he's gotten himself into, I promise I'm not giving up on Simon.
Simon Lewis: Why is this happening to me? I'm a good guy. I'm an organ donor. I was an organ donor. Do we still give organs as a vamp...
Raphael Santiago: Simon. Get a hold of yourself.
Sebastian Verlac: I feel terrible. I should have called. I guess I'm just... ashamed, you know? I guess I'm not as perfect as everyone thought.
Aline Penhallow: Trust me, I never thought you were perfect.
Luke Garroway: Listen, I just want you to know, whatever's going on between you two, I'm always here for you. You're the closest thing to a son that I got. Whether you like it or not.
Simon Lewis: So I'm not grounded?
Luke Garroway: Don't push your luck.
