Colin Maloney: Okay, take the car. I'll walk back. You didn't see anything, okay?
Ralph: Colin, you've just got to stop and think. This is murder.
Colin Maloney: No it can't be. Don't you get that? It's a brand new world, Ralph. A world without death. Which means there is no murder.

Colin Maloney: This is my first tour but I think we might get some important people wanting to visit, you know? We got a line on Hilary I'm feeling really good about.
Dr. Juarez: Hillary Clinton?
Colin Maloney: Duff. Hilary Duff.

Cop: [after punching Oswald] Don't you worry, sir. Nothing on your face. You'll still be nice and handsome for the TV. Should have run faster, Oswald.

Dr. Juarez: First I knew, they called up from the morgue. They were laughing. They said, "What's happening up there? You on strike?" Turns out, no one had died. Twenty-four hours since this hospital had a death. Not one. Not from old age, not from injury, not from sickness. All day long.
Esther: Could be just a coincidence, I suppose.
Dr. Juarez: That's what I said, yeah. Then I was on a call to St. Jude's in Chicago. They said, "Well, here's a funny thing. Past twenty-four hours, we've registered no deaths." Not one. So I called my ex-husband - he's at Cedar Brook - same story. All day, no deaths. I tried London. I have this friend at the Royal Free Hospital. I called her. She said, "Oh, that's weird. It's the same thing over here." Twenty-four hours, no one's died. What do you think of that, hm? One lucky day.

Dr. Patel: Category Ones are dead. That's the law. Under the emergency rulings for the sake of public health, category ones can be incinerated en masse.
Gwen: Well I'm glad you've got the law on your side.

Esther: Do you think I'm useless?
Jack: No. I think you're new to all this.
Esther: Yeah, but I'm CIA.
Jack: So's Rex. But he's just pretending. And that's the big secret, Esther. At times like these, the game goes to the person who speaks with the loudest voice. But pretty much everyone just wishes their mother was here.

Esther: He cockblocked the ATF.
Gwen: [laughs] I have no idea what any of that means.

Esther: Torchwood, that wasn't a virus. It's gotta be some sort of malware.
Noah: It's like nothing I've ever seen. The word "Torchwood" has vanished. It's been eradicated. If you search for "Torchwood," you get no results. Nothing gets no results.
Esther: There's gotta be something on paper.
Noah: Shelves are buried. It's all gone. I asked Yvonne. She said it was classified under the 456 regulations. She said you want to stay away.
Esther: Why?
Noah: They all died. So the story goes, anyone that worked for Torchwood was killed in action. And they died young.

Esther: What was that? Was that Lyn? What the hell is going on?
Gwen: Welcome to Torchwood.

Gwen: All the things I fought with Torchwood. And what stops me? Red tape.

Gwen: Anyway, so how's my little girl?
Rhys: Don't call me that, Gwen.
Gwen: Very funny.

Gwen: But Rex, we've got to do this. And I'm gonna to tell you why. Because I'm standing here and I'm staring at Oswald Danes. And he chose when that girl lived and he chose when that girl died. And no one should have that power. Not the rich, not the mad, not anyone.
Oswald: You're choosing now.
Gwen: Yeah, you watch me.
Oswald: You'll kill Jack and Rex and that girl Esther--all of your Torchwood team. You'll kill them all.
Gwen: Yeah. Yeah.
Oswald: You are magnificent!

Gwen: Just get my dad out, Rhys, and I'll phone you tonight.
Rhys: It's already tonight!

Gwen: So much for tying him up.
Rhys: I've never tied up a person!
Gwen: "Men are good at knots." How many times have you told me that?
Rhys: At Christmas!
[having been attacked by a sniper in a helicopter]

Gwen: That was your last chance.
Lyn: Yeah? And what're you gonna do about it? If you're the best England's got to offer, then God help you.
Gwen: I'm Welsh. [punches her]
