Alexandra Reid (to Danny): I can see you've formed a kind of bond here. And while that might give you some comfort, I promise you, it's temporary. They will disappoint you. They will not make you stronger. And if I might give you some advice, the more connections you have, the easier it will be to break you.
Stick: What do you want?
Alexandra Reid: The same thing I've always wanted. To bring light into the dark. To bring life where there is death.
Luke Cage: For all your talk of life, you sure kill a lot of people.
Luke Cage: How are you still hungry?
Danny Rand: It takes a lot of energy to summon my chi. (Luke laughs) What? Come on, you've seen it in action. Twice now.
Luke Cage: I liked it better on my side of the fight and not the side of my face.
Jessica Jones (to Luke): I don't know what it is that makes you care so much about other people, but that's not me. It was good to see you. Let me know when they fit you for a costume.
Stick: Those tremors that shook up the place, they're nothing compared to what comes next. The Hand's done it before. Pompeii, Chernobyl. Events the history books like to call catastrophes, just cover-ups. 'Cause New York is next. And the only thing keeping Manhattan from crumbling to a pile of dust... is the four of you.
Danny Rand: Bulletproof. Blind ninja. Whatever it is you are.
Jessica Jones: Classy.
Danny Rand: I tried being a one-man army, and it failed. But this... This feels like something else is at work here. The four of us show up to fight a criminal organization at the same moment? How obvious does it have to be? This... This cannot be an accident.
Alexandra Reid: Who are you?
Elektra Natchios: The Black Sky. I serve the Hand.
Both of them: "And together, we serve life itself."
Alexandra Reid: You are my last hope. You have seen death, my child. And like me, you have conquered it. Don't forget who brought us back.
Danny Rand: Uh, are those pork?
Matt Murdock: No, they're shrimp.
Danny Rand: Oh.
Matt Murdock: Oh. This guy's got pork.
Danny Rand: Ah, great!
Jessica Jones (to Matt): God, you're weird.
Danny Rand: You know nothing about me.
Luke Cage: I know enough. And I know privilege when I see it. You may think you earned your strength, but you had power the day you were born. Before the dragons. Before the chi. You have the ability to change the world without getting anybody hurt.
Danny Rand: These people won't be stopped that way.
Luke Cage: So you're taking the war to the ones at the bottom, is that it? If I were in your shoes, I'd think twice about using that thing on people who are trying to feed their families. This isn't gonna work out, it's obvious. Good luck, man.
