Latest quotes added:

Queen Maeve: Look. (shows her wrist)

Annie January: What am I supposed to be looking at?

Queen Maeve: No... my radius never healed straight. I really did break every bone in my right arm.

Annie January: What?

Queen Maeve: Stopping the bus from falling. You said the marketing guys made it up. It was me. 23-year-old, bright-eyed, ass you could bounce a quarter off of... me. I really did want to make a difference. I really did care. I was just like you. And then... I started giving pieces of myself away and... I guess I gave away everything. So you know what? Be... just be original. For f*ck's sake. My position is already taken. Be the annoying goody two-shoes a**hole that you are. One of us has to be.

Jonah Vogelbaum: The thing about cross-breeding dogs, you get the right genes, you can get a perfect creation. But it doesn't matter how perfect they are. It's not enough. When I raise subjects without their mothers, they become violent. Aggressive. Downright hateful. You should have been raised in a home with a family who loved you. Not in a cold lab with doctors.

Homelander: And yet, I turned out great.

Jonah Vogelbaum: When I think what it's done to you, and what you can now do to everyone else... I'm sorry.

Queen Maeve: Homelander, that's enough.

Homelander: You got something to add, Maeve?

Queen Maeve: She didn't know.

Homelander: Well, she stinks of adrenaline and her heart's beating like a little rabbit.

Queen Maeve: The only thing she's guilty of is being f*cking stupid. She obviously fell for this Hugh Campbell guy and he's pumping her for information, so back off, leave her alone.

Homelander: Wow. Starlight, you must be something special. Hmm? I can't remember the last time Maeve gave a sh*t ab... Well, gave a sh*t about anyone, really.


Billy Butcher (about Homelander): How the f*ck does he walk around in that sweaty f*cking wetsuit all day long, balls mashed up against his leg like pancakes?

Becca Butcher: Oh, shh.

Billy Butcher: What?

Becca Butcher: You promised to behave.

Annie January (to Hughie): I just know that, for me, New York has been such an endless sh*t show. Except for you. Somehow, in the middle of it all... you found me.

Annie January: Today, I wanted to share with you how I accepted Christ... as my personal savior. How His way is the only way... Uh... Just... just please stop the music. Please stop. (music turns off) You want me to just suck it up and do this for you? Hmm? You have no idea what you're really asking. You have no idea what I've been through. Every single word that I say up here, I'm reading from a script. I didn't write any of these words. I don't even know if I believe in them. I mean, I believe in God, I love God so much, but... Honestly, it's... it's just how godd*mn certain everyone is around here. I mean, tickets start at, what, 170 bucks, so that these people can tell you how to get to heaven? How do they know? How does anybody know? When the Bible was written, life expectancy was 30 years old. I mean, I'm not so sure you're supposed to take it literally. It also says that it's a sin to eat shrimp. What, if you're gay or if you're Gandhi, you're going to hell? I mean... And if you have sex before marriage, that's, that's not immoral. That's human. What's immoral is the guy who shoved his d*ck in my face. Here's the truth. Anyone who tells you they know the answers is lying. And I know, I know, I'm supposed to be this hero-idol-symbol-whatever, but I don't know what the hell I'm doing. I'm just as scared and confused as the rest of you. I'm done pretending, and I'm done taking any more sh*t. Thank you.

Mother's Milk: So, you want to pay me the professional courtesy and tell me where the hell you disappeared to before?

Billy Butcher: I just had to pop down to the shop. I was running a bit low on mind your own f*cking business.

(Butcher is about to throw a grenade at The Female, Frenchie stops him...)

Frenchie: No. Let me talk to her.

Billy Butcher: Don't be f*cking stupid.

Frenchie: What if she's a Spice Girl?

Billy Butcher: Frenchie.

Frenchie: Let me help you go home.

(The Female attacks Frenchie and Butcher throws smoke grenade at them, which knocks them out...)

Billy Butcher: She ain't no Spice Girl.

Madelyn Stillwell: What I need right now, is I need you to charm the sh*t out of those congressmen.

Homelander: Right. 'Cause that's all I'm good for, huh? Smile, look pretty, say my lines. Whoop, whoop, whoop.

Madelyn Stillwell: No. No. You just need to let me protect you.

Homelander: Oh, you're gonna protect me?

Madelyn Stillwell: Mm-hmm. Gods are pure and they're perfect and they're above it all. And they need to stay that way.

Billy Butcher: This is like that scene in The Matrix. Now, you could take the f*cking red pill, right? Spend the rest of your life jacking off, crying into your chai tea green latte, what the f*ck. Or... you could take the blue pill. Or is it the red pill? Anyway, take the other pill and quit being a c*nt.

Hughie Campbell: Which pill do you want me to take?

Billy Butcher: Just quit being a c*nt. That's what I'm saying.

Hughie Campbell: So you fell on your ass, you know? That's not who you are. So who are you?

Annie January: I'm a fighter. I'm gonna fight. Yeah. I'm gonna take that son of a b*tch's head clean off his body.

Hughie Campbell: Okay. Wow, that was... Okay. Cool. Little scary, but... but-but cool.
