The Flash Quotes

Caitlin Snow: Trigeminal headache?
Cisco Ramon: What?
Caitlin Snow: Trigeminal headache. Brain freeze.
Cisco Ramon: Then why don't you just call it a brain freeze?

SUPERSONIC PUNCH, BABY! WOOO!

You're gonna need to think about a lot of dead puppies, like, we're talkin' a whole kennel. And baseball. Cold showers. You know what? Nuns. image

Caitlin Snow: I thought throwing things was *Harry's* preferred method of dealing with stress.
Cisco Ramon: That is how frustrated I am right now. I'm... just running out of ideas as to how to make this work. Where's Barry? I need a taste of that "walking on sunshine" thing he's got goin' on right now.

You thought the world was slowing down, you were moving so fast, it looked like everyone else was standing still

For a guy who has experienced his fair share of mysteries, one mystery I still can't figure out is why some people come into our lives. Why some people go, and others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever. And others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last a lifetime. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.

Cisco Ramon: Dear God! Caitlin, your hands are freezing.
Caitlin Snow: Caitlin. I've always hated that name.
Cisco Ramon: Oh, no. No, no, no. It's starting. You're starting to become...
Caitlin Snow: Killer Frost?
Cisco Ramon: That ain't right. That ain't right. That's just rude. Who put you up to this? Barry put you up to this, didn't he? Oh, I shoulda known you two were...
Caitlin Snow: Cold?
Cisco Ramon: Yeah.
Caitlin Snow: You deserve it for thinking that I could ever become like her.

Barry, I am very good at bossing my little brother around. image

Barry, I am very good at bossing my little brother around.

Barry Allen: That's him.
Iris West: Oh. He's handsome in a square-jawwed Oliver Queen kind of way.
Barry Allen: For real?
Iris West: Babe, you know I've only got eyes for you.

Iris West: Can I help you, detective?
Detective Eddie Thawne: You can stop acting you can't stand me when your dad's around.
Iris West: Aww. And I like having a boyfriend who isn't shot to death.

Dr. Harrison Wells: Cisco, bring the generator on-line. Make sure Barry gets the charge.
Cisco Ramon: What? You're not coming with me? I am not leaving you.
Dr. Harrison Wells: Listen to me. Of everything I've done in my life, of everything I have invented, my most important creation is the Flash. Barry Allen must have a future. Now, go. Go! image

Hartley Rathaway: Bakudan kage, It's Japanese.
Cisco Ramon: How can you speak six languages and sound like a dick in every one of them.

Caitlin Snow: I had Ronnie, then I lost him, then I found him again, but he wasn't actually Ronnie, then I got him back, but just for a day, until I lost him again.
Cisco Ramon: You guys are like ten seasons of Ross and Rachel, but just, like, smushed into one year.

Caitlin Snow: What if I came with you?
Cisco Ramon: What? Seriously?
Caitlin Snow: Absolutely. You've done so much for me. Let me be there for you for a change. And I can look at old family photo albums and see what little Cisco looks like without long hair.
Cisco Ramon: I'm rescinding your invite.

Whoa. Guys, this is mad freaky. image

Jay Garrick: What's Christmas?
Caitlin Snow: Oh, well, it's this holiday we have where we cut down trees and sing songs to celebrate the birth of a baby 2,000 years ago, and then the Romans killed him, so we give each other gifts...
Cisco Ramon: That's tour explanation?
Jay Garrick: I know what Christmas is.
Caitlin Snow: Oh, right, of course. Um, you know, Joe and Barry and Iris are having people over for Christmas Eve, and they said we could invite whoever we want.
Jay Garrick: Who... who do you want?
Caitlin Snow: You. I want to invite you, I mean.
Cisco Ramon: This is so painful.

Cisco Ramon: I think we found the next target for our thirty-something, meta-human, not-a-Ninja-Turtle.
Caitlin Snow: How long did it take you to come up with that one?
Cisco Ramon: It just came out of my mouth - did you see that? That was amazing.

Barry Allen: Hello.
Cisco Ramon: Code 237 on Waid Boulevard.
Barry Allen: Public Indecency?
Cisco Ramon: Wait, I think I meant a 239.
Barry Allen: Dog leash violation?
Caitlin Snow: Bad man with a gun in a getaway car. Go!

Oliver Queen: My identity is a closely-guarded secret known only to a few and, if it were to get out, will endanger my family, my friends, and it would embolden my enemies to retaliate at me through them.
Felicity Smoak: What Oliver is trying to say is that he had a lovely time working with you and getting to know each of you, and he can't wait to do it again soon.
Oliver Queen: Right.
Cisco Ramon: You know, it didn't sound like that's what he was saying.

Cisco Ramon: When the heat gun was fired, it increases surrounding temperature of the air dramatically, sort of like an extreme heat wave.
Cisco Ramon: "Heat Wave"...?
Dr. Harrison Wells: Stop doing that.

Barry Allen: But you guys have never even mentioned his name.
Caitlin Snow: That's because Hartley had a... challenging personality.
Cisco Ramon: Which she means is he was mostly a jerk, but, every once in a while, he could be a dick.

I've already lost Ronnie once. I'm not gonna do it again. You said we have a couple hours. USE them. image

I've already lost Ronnie once. I'm not gonna do it again. You said we have a couple hours. USE them.

Caitlin Snow: I had Ronnie, then I lost him, then I found him again, but he wasn't actually Ronnie, then I got him back, but just for a day, until I lost him again.
Cisco Ramon: You guys are like ten seasons of Ross and Rachel, but just, like, smushed into one year.

Cisco Ramon: Talking in the third person. That's never a good sign.
Caitlin Snow: You're just mad because he named himself.
Joe West: Actually, he didn't. Twenty years ago, Central City was hit by a series of terrorist attacks. One man killed at least ten civilians, two cops. That guy called himself The Trickster.
Cisco Ramon: Whoa. Someone was rockin' the unitard.
Caitlin Snow: James Jesse?
Joe West: Like Jesse James, only more twisted.

Cisco Ramon: Please tell me that's not what I think it is.
Quentin Lance: Okay, that is definitely a hand.
Cisco Ramon: Okay. See, I thought it was a foot but a hand is just as bad.

Cisco Ramon: "Flash missing. Vanishes in crisis."
Barry Allen: "After an epic street battle with The Reverse-Flash, our city's very own Scarlet Speedster disappeared in an explosion of light."
Caitlin Snow: Barry, look at the date.
Barry Allen: April 25, 2024. Guys, w-when I fought The Reverse-Flash at Christmas, he said that we'd be fighting for centuries.
Caitlin Snow: Wait, you can't really think that this is from... the future.
Cisco Ramon: That would mean Dr. Wells, whoever he is, is also...
Barry Allen: From the future.
Cisco Ramon: I have to say, I'm really digging the brighter red suit. And the white on the symbol? That's dope. Wait a second. Suppose we now change the color on your suit. Will it be because we got the idea from this picture? That would mean we're living in a causal nexus. This - wow - this is so trippy, like, Marty and the Polaroid trippy.
Caitlin Snow: Not as trippy as the name on the byline.
Barry Allen: Iris West-Allen?
Cisco Ramon: Mazel tov?

You carry a handkerchief now? What are you, eighty? image

You carry a handkerchief now? What are you, eighty?

The Flash: Lisa was safe. Why did you do that?
Leonard Snart: He broke my sister's heart. Only fair I break his.

Jay's death took its toll, left scars on all of us, some more than others. And so to try and keep my mind off thoughts of the surreal other life I experienced that wasn't my own, I kept running, waiting for some other meta-human threat to rear its ugly head and distract me from the frustration I was feeling; and, as fate would have it, I did not have to wait long.

Cisco Ramon: It's not Zoom. It's me.
Barry Allen: What do you mean it's you?
Cisco Ramon: It's like right now I'm Anakin Skywalker. I got the midi-chlorians. I've got the goods. The force is strong with me. That is something I can feel, but if I start opening breaches into other worlds, doing all this other crazy stuff Reverb was doing, then... what if this is how I become Vader?
Barry Allen: Dude, you're never gonna become Vader.
Cisco Ramon: You don't know that. That is what happened to Reverb. He learned how to use his abilities, and when he felt that, when he felt that power, he succumbed... to the dark side.

Barry Allen: How do you guys say "see ya later" over there?
H.R. Wells: Ah.
H.R. Wells: Until next communion.

That was cold, Flash. But this is colder. image

That was cold, Flash. But this is colder.

Barry Allen: Holy winter wonderland. Took the words right out of my mouth.
Iris West: Well, I guess Earth-19's Christmas is just like ours.
H.R. Wells: Some traditions are multi-versal.

All these months, you were trying to save me from him. Look at that; I saved you. image

All these months, you were trying to save me from him. Look at that; I saved you.

Your Honor, I'm innocent. I didn't do this. I didn't kill anyone. And I know that one day, the truth will come out. image

Your Honor, I'm innocent. I didn't do this. I didn't kill anyone. And I know that one day, the truth will come out.

Barry Allen: How you doing?
Iris West-Allen: They say the first year of marriage is always the hardest, but I never thought my husband being on trial for murder would be one of the challenges.

King Shark versus Gorilla Grodd? Are you kidding me? I missed that? image

King Shark versus Gorilla Grodd? Are you kidding me? I missed that?

The Flash: I don't want to fight. We have a cure.
Cicada: What are you talking about?
The Flash: We have a way to cure meta-humans. We have a way to take their powers away. We want you to take it.
Cicada: And why would I agree to do that?
The Flash: Your legacy. I know how this ends. You keep killing, and you're remembered as a monster, not a hero. But we can change that together, you can have a different legacy. You just have to choose it.
Cicada: I don't give a damn about my legacy.

Caitlin Snow: We ran city-wide racial recognition scans.
Iris West-Allen: And scanned for dark matter signals from Cicada's dagger.
Barry Allen: That was our last shot at confronting Cicada.
Iris West-Allen: We don't know that. The change in the timeline, that photo that Nora saw at the Flash Museum, it could be different now.
Caitlin Snow: Maybe it doesn't even exist.
Sherloque Wells: After all, the timeline is malleable.

I used to think that keeping secrets from people for their own good was a noble decision, that it would protect them. But when you do that, you just rob those people from making their own decisions.

The Flash: Hartley, thanks for coming after me.
Pied Piper: Yeah, don't mention it. You won another battle against some speed freak, and I lost everything.
The Flash: Look, I promise we'll figure something out.

My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive. A friend recently gave me the idea for a new name, and something tells me it's gonna catch on.

He can control the weather, there were robberies during freak meteoric events, when I confronted him, street enveloped in fog, of course you don't believe me, you never did believe me

So, Barry, how was your trip? Did you find proof of the impossible in Starling City, or did you just make my dad mad for no reason?

Barry Allen: I just noticed you don't smile too much.
Caitlin Snow: My once promising career in bioengineering is over, my boss is in a wheelchair for life, the explosion that put you in a coma also killed my fiancé; so, this blank expression kind of feels like the way to go.

Caitlin Snow: It looks like you had a distal radius fracture.
Barry Allen: Had?
Caitlin Snow: It's healed. In three hours.
Barry Allen: How is that even possible?
Caitlin Snow: We don't know. Yet.
Cisco Ramon: You really need to learn how to stop.

Barry Allen: I just noticed you don't smile too much.
Caitlin Snow: My once promising career in bioengineering is over, my boss is in a wheelchair for life, the explosion that put you in a coma also killed my fiancé; so, this blank expression kind of feels like the way to go.

Caitlin Snow: It looks like you had a distal radius fracture.
Barry Allen: Had?
Caitlin Snow: It's healed. In three hours.
Barry Allen: How is that even possible?
Caitlin Snow: We don't know. Yet.
Cisco Ramon: You really need to learn how to stop.

Yeah, I may be the one in the suit doing all the running... but when I'm out there helping people, making a difference... you're all out there with me. Finally realized something: we were all struck by that lightning.

You of all people should know that in Science We Share! We Do NOT Keep Secrets.

Well, at least Multiplex won't be able to hurt anyone else. Told you I'd come up with a cool name.

I thought being the fastest man alive would make my life easier, that I could outrun anything. Turns out no one can outrun pain. Life is tragic but it's also precious, and sweet, and extraordinary. And the only way I know to honor my mom's life is to keep running.

It doesn't matter if you're the slowest kid in gym class or the fastest man alive. Every one of us is running. Being alive MEANS running - running from something, running to something or... some one - and no matter how fast you are, there are just some things you can't outrun. Some things always manage to catch up to you.

You're still the cutest nerd I know.

Caitlin Snow: He saved so many lives that day, and no one will ever know what he did.
Barry Allen: I do. He was a hero.
Caitlin Snow: I didn't want him to be a hero. I wanted him to be my husband.

Iris West: Dad, we have something, um, that we need to tell you. Dad, the thing is...
Joe West: You two are dating. I know.
Iris West: You do?
Joe West: I'm a detective, remember? And both of you are lousy liars.
Eddie Thawne: So you're not mad?
Joe West: Oh, I'm mad. If the doctor hadn't confiscated my gun, we'd be having an entirely different conversation.

Taking the train is still one of the safest ways to travel.

For the record, I crushed it in Operation and ping pong.

Meet me on the roof. I'll give you a head start.

Our entire lives, you couldn't scream loud enough that the impossible existed. And now it's actually happening in Central City. I have proof of it, and you don't want to know about it? That doesn't make sense, Barry. So when you're ready to tell me what this whole routine is really about, then we can talk.

You can walk on water. Puts you in pretty interesting company.

Detective Eddie Thawne: What's going on?
Officer Vukuvich: I have no idea. But they came in here like they own the place. Been talking to Singh for the last half hour.
Joe West: This can't be good.

Cisco Ramon: Still nothing?
Barry Allen: I can't get drunk. I mean, I'm only 25, and my drinking days are already over.

To be continued. Gotta run.

To understand what I'm about to tell you, you need to do something first. You need to believe in the impossible. Can you do that? Good. Because all of us, we have forgotten what miracles look like, maybe because they haven't made much of an appearance lately. Our lives have become ordinary, but there's someone out there who is truly extraordinary. I don't know where you came from, I don't know your name, but I have seen you do the impossible to protect the city I love; so, for those of us who believe in you and what you're doing, I just want to say thank you.

Today, I was saved by the impossible. A mystery man. The fastest man alive. Then a friend gave me an idea for a new name, and something tells me it's gonna catch on.

Cisco Ramon: Let's adjust the impact angle by 2 degrees, up the speed to 838.
Cisco Ramon: Bam.
Cisco Ramon: Ouch.
Caitlin Snow: Ouch?

Eddie Thawne: Hey, next time work on your speed.
Barry Allen: Yeah... I'll do my best.

Eddie Thawne: Allen, you really need a car.
Barry Allen: I usually manage on foot okay.

Barry Allen: I mean, this is crazy. There are literally hundreds of thousands of people in Central City and, out of everyone you could have picked to rob, you pick me.
Mugger: What, are you sick? Money. Now.
Barry Allen: I just... You're really gonna be kicking yourself, man. I mean, if there was an Olympics for bad luck, you didn't just medal, pal. You Michael Phelps-ed.

Iris West: Oh, now you show up.
The Flash: I'm sorry I wasn't there for you today. It couldn't be helped.
Iris West: It's okay. A girl's gotta be her own hero every now and again.
The Flash: I promise I'll never be late again.
Iris West: My best friend is always saying that, and he is always late.
The Flash: You're worth being on time for.

Barry Allen: You think I'll ever wear it again?
Caitlin Snow: I hope so.
Barry Allen: I didn't have my speed for very long, but now that it's gone, it feels like part of me is gone, too.
Caitlin Snow: With or without your speed, you're still you, Barry.
Barry Allen: But I'm not. I'm not the best version of me. I love being the Flash. I love everything about it. The feeling of running hundreds of miles per hour, wind and power just rushing past my face, being able to help people. I'm not sure I can live without it, Caitlyn.

Eddie Thawne: His face is melted off. How's that picture gonna help I.D. him?
Barry Allen: I have mad skills.
Joe West: Please don't ever say that again.

Felicity Smoak: How'd it go with Oliver?
Barry Allen: You know, to be honest, not exactly the partnership I thought it would be.
Felicity Smoak: Oh, did he really do the thing with the arrows?
Barry Allen: You knew he was gonna shoot me?
Felicity Smoak: Well, it is practically impossible to tell when Oliver's making a joke.

Iris West: Flash. Be great to call you by your real name.
The Flash: You mean like "Ralph?"
Iris West: Is your name Ralph?

The Flash: I've got to run.
Iris West: I bet you say that to all the girls.
The Flash: What other girls?

Eddie Thawne: The blur, the Flash, the man in the red suit - whatever he's called - he was spotted at the bank this morning.
Captain David Singh: You mean the bank that was robbed of half a million dollars where a dozen people tried to murder each other, and you think our attention should be focused on catching Santa Claus.
Eddie Thawne: I can't explain how he gets to and from crime scenes so fast. We need to figure out who this guy is and what he wants.
Captain David Singh: You should ask your girlfriend. She writes fan fiction about him.
Eddie Thawne: Joe, help me out here.
Detective Joe West: Sorry, partner. I stopped believing in Santa when I was about eight.

Barry Allen: Who are you?
Reverse-Flash: You know who I am, Barry.
Barry Allen: I don't know who you are.
Reverse-Flash: But you do, Barry. We've been at this a long time, you and I, but I'm always one step ahead. It is your destiny to lose to me, Flash, just as it was your mother's destiny to die that night.

Eddie Thawne: And the Flash. Do you know who he is?
Joe West: Yeah, I do. He's the guy that saved both of our lives tonight.

Oh, I really wish that was because the batteries are dead.

My name is Barry Allen. I am not the fastest man alive. That title belongs to the man who killed my mother - but not for long.

Mick Rory: You're a friend of his, huh? He's fast... like fire. Fire, it's undefinable. Heat, light, energy. It's an evolution when things burn.
Caitlin Snow: You're sick.
Mick Rory: Maybe you're the sick ones. You ever think about that?
Caitlin Snow: Not really.
Mick Rory: Mm.
Caitlin Snow: You got third-degree burns. Why didn't you get skin grafts?
Mick Rory: The fire revealed my true self, showed me who I really am. I wonder what the Flash will reveal when I burn his suit and skin off.
Caitlin Snow: Do whatever you want to me, but leave him alone.
Mick Rory: Ooo, okay. You and this Flash must be really close if you're willing to die for him, hmm?
Mick Rory: You want me to show him who you really are? That'd be fun, hm? Show you who you... really are.

The people we admire aren't always who we'd like them to be.

Eric Larkin: Everyone, welcome Iris West, our new cub.
Iris West: Hi.
Eric Larkin: Anyone want to volunteer to be her mama bear? Mason, you picked a bad day to actually show up.
Mason Bridge: I don't nanny.
Eric Larkin: I lost the ability to make a joke back in '05. Today, you do.

Barry Allen: Dad. If I was The Flash, don't you think that you'd be the first to know about it?
Henry Allen: Yeah. Well, if The Flash were my son, I'd tell him a few things. First off, I'd tell him it's a dangerous world, so be careful. Then I'd tell him he's a hero. And he's saving a lot of lives. But the most important thing for him to know, I feel, is that his father's proud of him.

Linda Park: So, is this your place? It's awesome.
Barry Allen: Yeah. Well, not entirely. I grew up here. Is it really lame that I live at home?
Linda Park: Not at all. I still live with my parents.
Barry Allen: Really?
Linda Park: No. That would be so lame.

Eddie Thawne: Sir, please, you have everything to live for.
Jumper: No, I don't.
Jumper: Are you gonna let me go back up there?
Eddie Thawne: No.

Clarissa Stein: Well, after a year apart, I'm not letting him out of my sight. S.T.A.R. Labs did quite a few tests on Martin, didn't they - and they said he was fine?
Barry Allen: Yeah. Why? Is something wrong?
Clarissa Stein: He just seems a little different is all.
Barry Allen: Different how?
Clarissa Stein: He's been asking for pizza. Martin despises pizza.

I am so sorry. I didn't want you to find out this way.

Dr. Harrison Wells: Oh, while I am more than happy to spend an evening watching old movies with you, Cisco, do you not have your brother's dinner to attend?
Cisco Ramon: Yeah. I was gonna ask Caitlin to come with me, but then I got a much better idea.
Dr. Harrison Wells: Which was?
Cisco Ramon: To not go at all.

Joe West: So when were you planning on telling me you took down Mardon?
Barry Allen: I-I just haven't a chance yet.
Joe West: You got sidetracked, you mean?
Barry Allen: No, Joe, you can't be mad.
Joe West: I'm not mad. But I am curious. I mean, you were acting so weird at the crime scene.
Barry Allen: I always act weird.
Joe West: Okay. Weirder.

Eddie Thawne: Allen.
Barry Allen: Yeah, Eddie, I...
Eddie Thawne: Stay away from Iris.
Joe West: What the hell is going on here?
Captain David Singh: Hey, if you two have a beef, you take it outside.
Eddie Thawne: You know what the worst part, Barry. I thought you and I were

Henry Allen: Wow. You gotta tell me. What does it feel like when you're running down the street like a bat out of hell?
Barry Allen: There's no feeling like it.
Henry Allen: I bet. Actually, you're all heroes in my book, especially you, Dr. Wells. Thank you for everything that you've done for my son.
Dr. Harrison Wells: Well, your son is an extraordinary man, Dr. Allen, and I will do everything in my power to ensure Barry's future.

Barry Allen: Joe, you had your suspicions about Wells from the very beginning. You thought that he might be the man in yellow.
Joe West: Except the blood from your house didn't match him.
Barry Allen: All right, so maybe he's not the Reverse-Flash. But you think he knows what happened that night. He may have the key to getting my dad out of prison.

James Jesse: Well, hello. You know, I've been in prison for twenty years.
Iris West: Then you'll know the routine when you get sent back.

Joe West: Keeping her in the dark, it's for her safety.
Eddie Thawne: That is debatable - and we will have that debate - but for right now, what's our next move? How do we figure out what Wells is up to?
Barry Allen: When Wells was talking me through phasing so I could get the Trickster's bomb off my wrist, the way that he described my being The Flash, running, feeling the wind and the power, it's like he was talking from experience.
Joe West: What are you saying?
Barry Allen: I don't know how... but he's the man in yellow. Harrison Wells is the Reverse-Flash.

Dr. Tina McGee: Fifteen years ago, Harrison and I were thick as thieves. We were promising young scientists in Starling City. He was such a kind man. Then everything changed after Tess died.
Barry Allen: They were gonna get married?
Dr. Tina McGee: I understand how grief can affect something, but this was more than that. It was like, after that day, Harrison Wells became a completely different person.

Felicity Smoak: It is so fun to watch grown men play with their toys.
Caitlin Snow: You're so lucky. Ray's so nice and smart and hot.
Felicity Smoak: Yeah, it's kind of like I'm dating Barry but in Oliver's body. A sentence you will never repeat to anyone.

Barry Allen: Another bee attack. Folston Tech.
Eddie Thawne: I'll see where Joe is.
Felicity Smoak: Bee-ee careful.
Barry Allen: For real?
Felicity Smoak: Bad pun, Sorry. Just don't die.

I'm getting faster, faster than I've ever been, and I wonder if it's because lately something's chasing me. I know what it is that's stalking me. It's my past. It's getting closer, and as fast as I am, I can't help but feel like my past has almost caught up with me.

Eddie Thawne: When are you coming home?
Iris West: When it starts to feel like a home again.

Caitlin Snow: This isn't possible.
Cisco Ramon: Caitlin, I ran the DNA test twice. It's a perfect match.
Joe West: This body is the real Harrison Wells.
Caitlin Snow: If this is Dr. Wells, then who have we been working for this whole time?

arry Allen: Dr. McGee said that after the accident, Wells became a completely different person. It's because he is a different person.

Quentin Lance: What is that? A, uh, metal detector?
Cisco Ramon: Uh, essentially, only instead of listening for metal objects, I'm listening for anything that emits an abnormal sound wave.

Barry Allen: You know Dr. Wells?
Gideon: Yes.
Barry Allen: Do you know who he really is?
Gideon: I don't understand the question.
Barry Allen: I... I mean, what is he doing here? W-why did he come here?
Gideon: To kill you.

Eddie Thawne: You might as well take that mask off. I know it's you, Wells, or whoever you really are.
Reverse-Flash: Well, allow me to introduce myself.
Dr. Harrison Wells: My name is Eobard. Eobard Thawne.
Eddie Thawne: I don't understand. Why do you have my name?
Dr. Harrison Wells: Why? Well, 'cause we're family, Eddie.
Eddie Thawne: Funny, I haven't seen you at any reunions or weddings.
Dr. Harrison Wells: That is funny, and the reason for that is because, as far as those guest lists are concerned, I haven't been born yet.
Eddie Thawne: So that's why you didn't kill me that night at S.T.A.R. Labs? This whole thing - it's been about me?
Dr. Harrison Wells: Not a chance. You, my friend, are simply my insurance.

Barry Allen: What happened to Grodd?
Caitlin Snow: We don't know. After the Particle Accelerator exploded, I went down to check on him, and his cage was empty.
Joe West: So he could have been affected by the same energy that hit Barry?
Cisco Ramon: When the dark matter hit Grodd, all the drugs and serums that Eiling injected him with could've activated. Maybe the Accelerator explosion created a meta-gorilla. I think we know what happens when a super-intelligent ape who's pissed off at humans escapes captivity.
Caitlin Snow: Cisco's right about the first part.

Caitlin Snow: Cisco's right about the first part.

Think about your best friend. It could be your wife, your father, maybe someone you grew up with. It's the person you can't wait to talk to at the end of the day, the person that knows everything about you, who roots for you. Now imagine your best friend had a secret. No, not a secret. A universe of secrets. Would you confront him? Would you stay silent? Either way, you know nothing will ever be the same again.

I don't understand. Everyday you guys figure out a way to help people. All of The Flash's powers and all of this equipment and you can't save Eddie and my dad?

Eddie Thawne: You told me we're related, that you're from the future. Prove it.
Dr. Harrison Wells: Yeah, I don't have to prove anything to anyone.
Eddie Thawne: Well, I think you're full of crap, and whatever you're trying to do, you're not gonna get away with it because The Flash is...
Dr. Harrison Wells: [becoming Reverse-Flash for a moment] Stop talking.

If I hadn't seen Jurassic Park, I wouldn't be nearly as frightened right now.

Iris West: You were kidnapped for nearly two weeks and your first thought is to go back to work?
Detective Eddie Thawne: I just needed something constant in my life.
Iris West: I thought that was us.

Caitlin Snow: Please tell me this is a joke.
Lisa Snart: Oh, you were right, Lenny. She is very uptight.
Caitlin Snow: I am not uptight. You can't call me uptight.

My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive. When I was a child, I saw my mother killed by something impossible. My father went to prison for her murder. Then an accident made me the impossible. To the outside world, I am an ordinary forensic scientist, but secretly, I use my speed to fight crime and find others like me. And one day I'll find who killed my mother and get justice for my father. That day is today.

Iris West: So are you gonna do it?
Barry Allen: It's just so... huge. It's the biggest decision of my life, and if I'm wrong, I can't undo it.
Iris West: Why would you want to? I mean, you'd get to see your mom again, your dad, have a great career, even get married. Iris West-Allen, huh? I never really thought of myself as a hyphenator. Must be a 2024 thing.

Screw the future.

Barry Allen: We're gonna need something else, too.
Cisco Ramon: Really? And what's that? 'Cause I don't know about you guys, but I'm not at all interested in helping you get yourself killed.
Barry Allen: I need you to build a time machine.
Cisco Ramon: Go on.

My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive. When I was a child I saw my mother killed by something impossible. My father went to prison for her murder, then an accident made me the impossible, and I become the Flash. I used my powers to find the man responsible for my mother's death. I thought I would finally get justice for my family, but I failed. It's been six months since the Singularity. I'm on my own now. Decided it's better that way. Keeps the people I care about safe. There's only one thing I can do now.

Iris West: People just want to thank the man who saved Central City.
Barry Allen: Well they can't, 'cause that's not me. You should know that better than anyone.

So, this is what it looks like inside Mercury Labs. Security here is way better than it was at S.T.A.R. Labs, what with people walking in and out of the cortex all the time. image

So, this is what it looks like inside Mercury Labs. Security here is way better than it was at S.T.A.R. Labs, what with people walking in and out of the cortex all the time.

I wish you woulda just told us you lost your helmet. Would have saved us all a headache.

Barry, not everyone is Harrison Wells. Besides, you defeated him because you trusted in people, because you believed in them. This team that you have here, they will follow your lead, they'll do what you say; but, if they think that you don't believe in them, it won't be long before they don't believe in you.

Barry Allen: Fifty-two breaches in Central City and the biggest one just happens to be in our basement.
Cisco Ramon: We need a name for it.
Caitlin Snow: It's not a pet, Cisco.

Lisa Snart: I need your help.
Cisco Ramon: In your dreams, Sister Cold. You know I could call The Flash. He'd be here in like two seconds - probably one.

Everyone secretly thinks they've figured out what their life is gonna be like, but what no one ever considers is that life has its own plans for you, whether you like them or not, and so you're left with a choice. You can either embrace the change and move forward, or fight it and be left behind.

Sometimes great possibilities are right in front of us and we don't see them because we choose not to. I think that we need to be open to exploring something new.

Jefferson 'Jax' Jackson: You know, this whole thing is strange, being 50% of someone.
Caitlin Snow: Yeah, but you're 100% a hero.

So how do we do that? Are we just gonna make a Tinder app for potential meta-humans? Because I'm pretty sure merging with Stein and randomly bursting into flames sounds like the biggest swipe-left of all times.

You think this is easy for me? The guy in there looks, moves, sounds exactly like the guy that drove a knife through my mother's heart. I have to resist the urge to kill him. I'm trying to get past that, okay? You shooting him, that's... that's not helping.

Iris West: You look just like him.
Dr. Harry Wells: I'm guessing my counterpart did something to offend her as well?
Cisco Ramon: Her fiancé died because of him.

Caitlin Snow: You've coffee on your Earth, right?
Jay Garrick: I think coffee's the one constant thing in the multiverse.

I'm still here, creepin' an' peepin'.

Barry Allen: Aren't you the one who told me life isn't about playing defense? Sometimes the only way to succeed is by working the offense.
Joe West: I think at the time we were talking about your high school football tryouts.
Barry Allen: You said you'd never bring that up again.

The Flash: What do you want from me?
Zoom: Everything.
The Flash: You want to be me? Is that it? You want to be a hero?
Zoom: Heroes die.
The Flash: Only if you can catch them.

Dr. Harry Wells: Before I left Earth-2, I worked on a serum to dampen Zoom's speed. All we would need is for Ramon to develop a weapon to deliver it.
Caitlin Snow: Oh, great, that could be this year's cold gun. Maybe another criminal can get it, and then we'd have Sergeant Slow.
Cisco Ramon: I would never let that happen. Sergeant Slow is a terrible name.

The Flash: Did you guys see that?
Cisco Ramon: See him catch a bolt of lightning with his demonic claws? Yeah, saw that.

Henry Allen: Iris showed me what happened with Zoom. That was hard to watch. I can only imagine what that must have been like for you.
Barry Allen: He showed everyone in Central City that their hero wasn't good enough to stop him.
Henry Allen: Well, that's certainly what it looked like. Was he right? Your body's healed, Barry, and, yet, here you are feeling the shame of losing.
Barry Allen: I can't stop him. I know it, he knows it, and now everyone in this city knows it, too. They don't believe in me anymore, Dad.

Joe West: That was a hell of an idea you had, bringing Henry here.
Iris West: Well, he may not have his mother, but he's got two amazing fathers. Seemed like he needed both.

Gorilla Grodd: How did I become Grodd?
Caitlin Snow: Oh. That's a long story, Grodd. Um... The dark matter from the Particle Accelerator explosion. That's how this happened.
Gorilla Grodd: Repeat.
Caitlin Snow: Repeat?
Gorilla Grodd: Need to repeat Grodd.
Caitlin Snow: You... want me to make more like you? I don't know how to do that.
Gorilla Grodd: Learn.

Joe West: Yeah, well, we need to do something about Grodd.
Caitlin Snow: Like what?
Joe West: Like get rid of him for good.
Caitlin Snow: You want to kill him?
Joe West: Considering how many people he's killed, yeah.
Caitlin Snow: This isn't Grodd's fault. He's only like this because Wells made him this way.
Barry Allen: Yes, but, Catie, he kidnapped you and you could have died.
Caitlin Snow: You didn't see what I saw. Grodd's getting smarter. He's lonely and sad. He wants more apes like him.
Cisco Ramon: What are you saying? He wants kids? 'Cause I'm pretty sure one telepathic Grape Ape is more than enough for this city.

Barry Allen: Wow. Nice new digs. Also, I just noticed, no sleeves. Don't you get cold?

Oliver Queen: I spent the better part of five years on an island in the North China Sea. I don't get cold, Barry.

Barry Allen: Wow. Nice new digs. Also, I just noticed, no sleeves. Don't you get cold?

Oliver Queen: I spent the better part of five years on an island in the North China Sea. I don't get cold, Barry.

Thea Queen: I'm not changing my nickname. I like Speedy.
Cisco Ramon: Are you familiar with my body of work? If you are, then you know I can come up with something so much better than Speedy.
Thea Queen: Why don't you get a haircut and then maybe we can talk about it.
Cisco Ramon: I think you're just mad because my conditioner game is on point.

Joe West: You okay?
Barry Allen: Yeah, no, uh, nothin' a little meta-human regenerative healing capabilities won't cure.

Iris West: I had to fight some old lady for the last one. They didn't have any Green Arrow dolls.
Joe West: Don't nobody want a toy of that crazy man.

How do you like the magnets, bitch?

Hey, Turtle. So you want to know my new definition of irony? Now you... are our most prized possession.

I didn't realize roses were so flammable.

Iris West: Barry, I wish a year ago you had told me the truth.
Barry Allen: So, what, you think that I should just tell her?
Iris West: I think that if you are serious about being with her, you have to.

Cisco Ramon: You know, you're a great superhero.
Barry Allen: Thanks.
Cisco Ramon: A really great superhero.
Barry Allen: Thank you.
Cisco Ramon: But, do you think it's a good idea, when you're fighting crime, to bring a date?

The Flash: Time to send you back where you belong.
Eobard Thawne: We'll meet again soon, Flash.
The Flash: I know. And every time, I'll be ready for you.

Cisco Ramon: Are you telling me I can see the future?
Dr. Harry Wells: That's exactly what I'm telling you.
Cisco Ramon: Those goggles are getting named immediately.

Barry Allen: Yeah, he just found the best dad he could wish for.
Joe West: Oh, you say that now. You didn't always think that.
Barry Allen: Well, you were pretty strict, that's for sure, but strict isn't always a bad thing, especially when you know it's coming from love.

Wally West: I don't need a big sister.
Iris West: I know. You're gonna need an undertaker.

Caitlin Snow: Why'd you put him in there?
Joe West: 'Cause if I didn't, I woulda killed him.

When a hitman is scared, you know something's wrong.

Barry Allen: Caitlin.
Killer Frost: I haven't heard that name in a long time.
Barry Allen: That is your name, isn't it? Your real name? Please, look... I know you. Don't do this.
Killer Frost: If you knew me at all, you would know that I hate the name Caitlin. I'm Killer Frost.

So, which one of you lounge lizards is in the wrong universe, hm?

Holy 2001. I feel like I just opened my third eye.

I'm-I'm sorry. He got frisky with you? No, no, no, no, no. Okay, I'm gonna have to find this guy and give him a piece of my mind.

You may not have been struck by lightning over here like I was, but today you risked your life to save somebody you didn't even know. That's a hero, Barry.

Now, I don't know you and you don't know me, but I can tell you that today I... I did things that I never thought possible, because I needed to prove to my wife and to myself that I could. Now, if I can do the impossible today, so can you. I'm just Barry Allen, but you're The Flash.

Dr. Harry Wells: Your husband tells us you've been tracking Zoom.
Iris West-Allen: Yeah. I've been trying to. Why?
Cisco Ramon: We need to find his lair.
Dr. Harry Wells: Lair?
Cisco Ramon: He's a bad guy; I'm calling it a lair.

Geomancer: I like to watch heroes fall and never get back up.
Caitlin Snow: He always gets back up.
Geomancer: Hard to do that when the Earth swallows you whole.

Dr. Harry Wells: Did he follow you here?
Cisco Ramon: I've seen Heat like fifty times, okay? I know how to shake a tail.

Joe West: I don't suppose my home owners insurance covers a "Sharknado" attack.
Wally West: I-I don't understand you people. Jaws busts through your house like the Kool-Aid Man, The Flash shows up, and y'all act like it's no big deal.
Iris West: Yeah, well, we've had a lot of weird things happen in Central City over the past two years.
Wally West: Weirder than a talking shark wearing pants?

Jesse Wells: Hey, you set the right distortion scope, right?
Cisco Ramon: Oh, for real? Okay. You know what, we're gonna play a game here. It's called, if you're from Earth-2, you're gonna be quiet, okay?

Dr. Harrison Wells: So to reach escape velocity, you're gonna have to go... that fast.
Barry Allen: Well, that fast is impossible. I can promise you that.
Dr. Harrison Wells: Uh-uh, uh-uh, "Nothing in life is promised except death."
Barry Allen: Edgar Allan Poe?
Dr. Harrison Wells: Kanye West.

Iris West: So Eliza just evaporated from running too fast?
Caitlin Snow: Looks like cellular degeneration, same as Jay's.
Joe West: Jay warned us V-9 was dangerous. Least now we know why.

Sometimes the only way to move forward is to revisit the things in your past that were holding you back. You have to deal with them head on, no matter how scary they may be, because, once you do, you'll see that you can go further than you ever imagined.

Hartley Rathaway: Well, as always, been a pleasure working with you all on this little project. If you need anything in the future, call me. I'm off to a late dinner.
Caitlin Snow: Mm, dinner? Anyone special?
Hartley Rathaway: Very. My parents.

Cisco Ramon: Wait a second, how do we know which one's the real Barry?
Past-Barry: Dude. Okay, I've watched Wrath of Khan with you, like, five times.
Cisco Ramon: Imposter!
Future-Barry: Yeah. And every time at the end, you turn to me and you say "I have been and always shall be your friend".
Cisco Ramon: Ah ha! You imposter!
Cisco Ramon: What is going on here?

Sometimes terrible things happen to us when we're children, things that can define who we become, whether we want them to or not. Some of us become stronger. The people who took me in helped me heal and move past everything that happened. They are responsible for who I've become today, but I know that I'm one of the lucky ones. Not everyone gets that kind of support. Without it, I don't know where I would've ended up, or what I could've become.

Not everyone gets that kind of support. Without it, I don't know where I would've ended up, or what I could've become.

Dr. Harry Wells: I said I would help you get faster. I did not say I would help you give the man who kidnapped my daughter and tortured her a chance to do it again.
Caitlin Snow: Hey, we are not gonna let that happen.
Dr. Harry Wells: Oh, you're not gonna let that happen. Gosh, I wish I'd known THAT the first time.

Dr. Harry Wells: I thought, you know, when you... when we closed the breaches, that I could just forget about everything I've done, but I can't. But I realize what I can do. You are gonna get your speed back, Allen, and I'm gonna help you do that.
Barry Allen: How?
Dr. Harry Wells: By creating another Particle Accelerator explosion.

Jesse Wells: Biochem was one of my majors in college.
Barry Allen: One of your majors? How many did you have?
Jesse Wells: Five.
Jesse Wells: What? Is that not common here?
Iris West: Girl, no, that is not common anywhere.

Zoom: You need to eat.
Zoom: Caitlin.
Caitlin Snow: If you want to speak to me, then take off that mask.
Hunter Zolomon: Does this make you feel better?
Caitlin Snow: Nothing you could ever do would make me feel better.

Cisco Ramon: Why is it that bad guys always insist on having the creepiest hideouts?
Joe West: 'Cause they crazy.

Cisco Ramon: Why is it that bad guys always insist on having the creepiest hideouts?
Joe West: 'Cause they crazy.

Let's do it. I wanna do it. One of the cops that Zoom killed tonight, he had a son, same age I was when Mom was murdered. And now, another kid has to grow up without one of their parents because The Flash wasn't there to stop that monster. I left this city unprotected by giving up my powers to Zoom. I enabled him to rule this Earth. I need my powers back. Let's do it. Let's set off the Particle Accelerator.

Iris West: I didn't think this hologram thing was gonna work, but so far, so good.
Cisco Ramon: I mean, I figured if they could get 2Pac rapping again at concert, we could definitely get The Flash running around Central City.

Barry Allen: I'm talking to the Speed Force.
Barry Allen: Isn't that like saying I'm having a conversation with gravity, or light, or...

Tony, look, you were never my favorite person, but let's end this so you can finally rest.

Iris West: Dad, do you really think that he's a meta-human?
Joe West: Well, he got zapped by the Particle Accelerator and he was unconscious. It was worth a shot.
Iris West: I gave you that mug.

I'm so glad you're back, 'cause we're about to die.

Barry Allen: So, how did you know?
Dr. Tina McGee: Your real identity?
Barry Allen: Yeah.
Dr. Tina McGee: Come on, Barry, I'm a scientist. We're paid to be perceptive - and you're always a little too well-informed when things go pear-shaped in this city.

Cisco Ramon: Okay, I'm gonna say it. Um, we don't think he's being just a little too...
Iris West: Overconfident?
Cisco Ramon: Yeah.
Iris West: Yeah, maybe it was his time in the Speed Force. I mean, he's acting like he's invincible now or something.
Henry Allen: Yeah, like nothing fazes him anymore, which isn't...
Dr. Harry Wells: Realistic, no. Somebody needs to talk to him before letting his guard down gets him hurt or worse.

Hunter Zolomon: I told you family was a weakness. You feel the anger, don't you, Flash? And now... the two of us ARE the same.
Barry Allen: No! No!
Hunter Zolomon: There you go, Flash! Use your anger, just like I did.

Joe West: Is that what I look like when they're... start talking about science?
Iris West: Pretty much.

Cisco Ramon: So, the reason you didn't have your powers is because there was a dampener in the mask. You see?
Jay Garrick: I don't want to see this thing ever again.
Cisco Ramon: So your powers are back.
Joe West: I see Jay - excuse me - Hunter stole your color scheme too.
Jay Garrick: He stole a lot of things that were mine, except for that. That's, um - that's all him.
Iris West: He said it was his father's from the war.
Dr. Harry Wells: Ironically, on my - on our Earth - this helmet stood for hope.
Jay Garrick: Yeah?
Dr. Harry Wells: Yeah.
Jay Garrick: Maybe I can continue on that sentiment, take something from him, for a change, make it my own.
Caitlin Snow: It suits you.
Jay Garrick: Thank you, all of you, for saving me from Zoom, especially you, Flash.
Barry Allen: You're welcome, Flash.
Jay Garrick: Now all I have to do is find my way home.
Wally West: And where's that?
Jay Garrick: I think you would call it Earth-3.
Cisco Ramon: Uh-huh. Well, I can get you to Earth-2.
Dr. Harry Wells: My daughter and I can help you with the rest.
Jesse Wells: We can?
Dr. Harry Wells: Yes, we can. We're going home.

Dr. Harry Wells: Cut the crap. We know you plan to power up the Magnetar so you can destroy the multiverse.
Hunter Zolomon: Bravo. You figured it out... almost. I don't want to destroy all of it. This Earth is at the center of the multiverse. It's the access point to every other Earth in existence. One trans-dimensional shockwave, and... poof.
Cisco Ramon: Leaving just our Earth. How generous of you.
Hunter Zolomon: Need to have SOME place to hang my cowl.

Barry Allen: Wait, Cisco, you're not gonna help us?
Cisco Ramon: Oh, that reminds me. Who the hell is this? Huh? You brought some stranger into my lab and told them I helped The Flash.
Barry Allen: Cisco.
Cisco Ramon: Uh-uh. I don't know you, string bean.

Joe West: Oh, I get it.
Barry Allen: What?
Joe West: No. I do not approve.
Iris West: Hi, Barry.
Barry Allen: Hey.
Iris West: Dad.
Joe West: Iris. You think it's a good idea, dating someone I work with?
Iris West: It's just a lunch. And truthfully, I wasn't even sure you still worked here.

Felicity Smoak: There's a whole new guy at work that you didn't even know about?
Barry Allen: Yeah. And he's worked there for almost a year. And he doesn't like me very much, apparently.
Felicity Smoak: Well, that's impossible. Everybody likes Barry Allen. You're like pudding. Everybody likes pudding.

Barry Allen: I was actually thinking, um, that maybe it'd be fun if we all went away together for a few days. Just like a little Team Flash vacay.
Iris West: And do what?
Barry Allen: Bond. Reconnect.
Caitlin Snow: You mean like a retreat?
Barry Allen: Nah.
Iris West: With trust exercises?
Cisco Ramon: Epic fail, party of six.

Joe West: I didn't find any known aliases in any of the records of CCPD. And Clariss won't say anything either.
Barry Allen: All right, well, keep at him. Alchemy is the one that gave Clariss back his speed.
Cisco Ramon: He's kinda like a doctor, that way, don't you think? Come on, don't pretend like Doctor Alchemy doesn't have a nice ring to it.
Caitlin Snow: Okay, well, that explains why he didn't have any traces of dark matter in his cells. He didn't get his powers from the particle accelerator, he got them from Alchemy.
Cisco Ramon: What's that?
Caitlin Snow: Doctor Alchemy.

tes
Barry Allen: I'm sorry, guys. Look, I just - we're not acting like a team, and I just wanted things back to how they were. Just fixed.
Cisco Ramon: If you wanted things fixed, maybe you should have gone back in time and stopped my brother from dying.
Barry Allen: You want me to change the time to save Dante?
Cisco Ramon: Why would you do that? It's not like he's your brother.

Barry Allen: Seriously, what the hell were you thinking? You can't just go stepping into the street like that. I mean, you got to use your head.
Wally West: Nothing happened, Barry. Chill out.
Barry Allen: Didn't you even talk to Joe about this?
Wally West: Yeah, so?
Barry Allen: So it clearly didn't help. What would you have done is Jesse wasn't there, huh?
Wally West: I don't know, man.
Barry Allen: Because there's nothing you could've done. Because you don't have powers.
Wally West: Only room in our family for one speedster, Barry?
Barry Allen: Please just stop trying before you get yourself killed.
Wally West: You done?
Barry Allen: Do you have anything to say?
Joe West: No, you pretty much covered it.

John Kane: Where are you taking me?
Iris West: Frankie is coming for you. As much as it pains me to help an abusive dick like you, I can't let you die.

Dr. Harry Wells: Who's Alchemy?
Cisco Ramon: Well, Doctor Alchemy is a magic man in a cloak who can somehow restore the powers that people had in Flashpoint.
Jesse Wells: Okay, what's Flashpoint?
Caitlin Snow: That's what we're calling the alternate timeline that Barry created when he went back in time and saved his mom.
Dr. Harry Wells: Oh. So Magenta is another side-effect from your time trip. Genius. Not.
Barry Allen: I don't need to be reminded. Thank you.

Dr. Harry Wells: Who's Alchemy?
Cisco Ramon: Well, Doctor Alchemy is a magic man in a cloak who can somehow restore the powers that people had in Flashpoint.
Jesse Wells: Okay, what's Flashpoint?
Caitlin Snow: That's what we're calling the alternate timeline that Barry created when he went back in time and saved his mom.
Dr. Harry Wells: Oh. So Magenta is another side-effect from your time trip. Genius. Not.
Barry Allen: I don't need to be reminded. Thank you.

Barry Allen: But there is a lesson in there somewhere.
Jesse Wells: What's that?
Barry Allen: The difference between having powers and precision.
Jesse Wells: Well, what do you mean?
Barry Allen: I mean, it's gonna take more than speed to take down some of these metas. You got to think, anticipate. When you enter a new environment, you got to case every inch of it. Never run in blind. Oh, my God. I've become Oliver.

Barry Allen: What are you doing?
Iris West: Do these pants make my butt look big?

Joe West: What are you looking for, Cisco?
Cisco Ramon: You ever seen "Twin Peaks"? Of course not. Why do I ask? This is an old black masking trick they used for the Man from Another Place, where they record his audio backwards and then play it forwards.
Joe West: Like the Ozzy Osbourne records.

Dr. Carla Tannhauser: If you don't stop squirming, I'll never find a vein.
Caitlin Snow: What exactly are you testing for now?
Dr. Carla Tannhauser: Any polymorphism that could help us understand how you're able to absorb that much energy from molecules to create gelled surroundings.
Caitlin Snow: You realize I've run all of these tests already.
Dr. Carla Tannhauser: Then what was the point of coming here?
Caitlin Snow: Seriously, mom? I am terrified of what I'm becoming. You realize you haven't even asked me once how I'm feeling.

The Flash: All right, I'm here. It's a bad scene, man.
Cisco Ramon: You should be right on top of it, Barry. What is it?
The Flash: It's a... monster? Guys, did you hear me? There is a monster in Central City.
Cisco Ramon: What are we talking? Yao Ming size or Andre the Giant?
The Flash: No, it's, like, an actual monster.

The Flash: It's over, Alchemy.
Doctor Alchemy: Over? You have no idea what's about to begin.

The Flash: Who are you?
Savitar: Savitar. The God of Speed.

Caitlin Snow: Cisco, I'm so sorry about how I overreacted. I understand why you told everyone.
Cisco Ramon: Never helps when we keep things from each other.
Caitlin Snow: You're right. And I'm glad that you told everyone. I'm just not very good at asking for help. I get that from my mom.
Cisco Ramon: You're better than your mother.

You think everyone on Earth-19 is missing crayons in the box, or just him?

You think everyone on Earth-19 is missing crayons in the box, or just him?

Joe West: They took Julian to County General. He's still out cold. How hard did you hit him?
Barry Allen: I don't know. I didn't mean to knock him out.

Barry Allen: Cisco. Hey, man, um, what Caitlin said...
Cisco Ramon: Was she lying?
Barry Allen: No. Um...
Cisco Ramon: You're sorry? That you killed my brother? 'Cause he was here. He was alive until you created Flashpoint, until you did this.
Barry Allen: I know, man.
Cisco Ramon: I don't even know how to feel right now. All I know is Caitlin is out there, and we need to find her. Can we do that?
Barry Allen: Yeah.

Hey, Supergirl! Let's finally see who's faster.

Iris West: So how long have you known about these Dominators?
Lyla Michaels: Since the '50s.
Joe West: That was them. Redmond, Oregon. The government tried to cover it up. What? I watch Syfy channel.

Barry Allen: How you feeling?
Jay Garrick: Not too bad for a guy that got beat up by a myth.

Barry Allen: What do you think about what Julian was saying?
Caitlin Snow: I know that every bad guy we've ever had has pretended to be our best friend, while really being an evil, murderous bastard, but...
Cisco Ramon: I think if he's lying, he sure believes the hell out of his own lie.
Barry Allen: Okay, well what do we think about this box?
Cisco Ramon: It's creepy. Like, "Indiana Jones" melt your face creepy.

Are we about to be the Grinches this year?

Barry Allen: Where do you come down on a fixed or ever-changing future?
H.R. Wells: Well, I think that a man often meets his destiny on the very road he takes to avoid it.
Barry Allen: Meaning?
H.R. Wells: Meaning... the future is fixed.

Iris West: I forgot this place existed.
Barry Allen: Yeah. The original Wells used to call it his Time Vault. I've been coming down here a lot lately; I guess I've become as obsessed with the future as he once was.
Barry Allen: After Flashpoint happened, this article reappeared.
Iris West: "Flash Missing. Vanishes in Crisis". Julie Greer, April 25, 2024. I don't...
Barry Allen: The byline used to read "Iris West-Allen". The future's changed.
Iris West: So maybe I quit my job.
Barry Allen: Yeah, that's what I'd hoped at first, too, or something. But, I... look, Iris, I'm sorry I didn't tell you this sooner. When I threw the Philosopher's Stone into the Speed Force, I accidentally ran to the future. I saw Savitar murder you. And I saw myself, and I wasn't fast enough to save you.

Caitlin Snow: You're the world's foremost specialist on metahumans.
Julian Albert: Yes, this much is true.
Caitlin Snow: And I need you to help me get rid of my powers. I've tried everything. I've run every test; blood, DNA, and I can't reverse this. I need to get rid of my powers before...
Julian Albert: Before what?
Caitlin Snow: Before I hurt someone else, the way I hurt you.
Julian Albert: I don't cure metahumans. I put them in prison. You're on your own, I'm afraid.

Barry Allen: My suit goes there.
Cisco Ramon: Ah, two suits, one mannequin. That is what we call a conundrum.

Solovar: After you die, your friends will follow you into the black.
The Flash: We'll see.

Caitlin Snow: I like you, Julian. I do. And I like that you like me, but I'm also afraid of my powers. And not what they could do to me, but what they could do to anyone who gets close to me.
Julian Albert: Caitlin, I'm not afraid.
Caitlin Snow: You should be. Fear me, Julian. It's not a threat. Just... good advice.

Speedster vs. super gorilla. Best worst video game ever.

I think that sometimes, the only way to stop bad things from happening is to just get rid of what's causing them.

Barry Allen: We're gonna need all the help we can get. Can you talk to Joe, see if he can rally CCPD?
Iris West: Yeah, yeah, I'll let him know that an army of sentient gorillas is about to storm the city. He's gonna love that.

Caitlin Snow: Whatever good was in Grodd is gone. As far as I'm concerned, they can throw him in the same cage as King Shark.
Cisco Ramon: Mm, I'd pay money to see that fight.

The Flash: I'm gonna kill you.
Savitar: If you had the strength to end my life, you would have done it in the future. But Barry Allen doesn't kill. He's the good guy. The boy Joe raised. The man Iris loves. You have everything. And deserves none of it. I'm gonna destroy this city like I did in the future, so you can see the truth, Barry. And then, you'll treat me like a god.
The Flash: You're not a god!

Kara Danvers: When it comes to buddies, pal, you are the best!
Barry Allen: I love you more than the lightning bolt I wear on my chest!
Kara Danvers: If you're ever sad, I'll bring you flowers!
Barry Allen: You can list "soprano" as one of your powers.
Kara Danvers: If you're ever broke...
Barry Allen: ...I got the cash!
Kara Danvers: On my couch...
Barry Allen: ...you're welcome to crash.
Kara Danvers: And if you ever need a hand...
Barry Allen: ...I'll be there in a flash!
Kara Danvers: Barry!
Barry Allen: That was funny.

Iris West: We need to go to whatever world they're in.
H.R. Wells: How are we gonna do that?
Iris West: Look, he said if we loved them enough that we could save them, wherever they are. Cisco, you can vibe us there.
Cisco Ramon: I don't think it works that way.
Iris West: You sent me into the Speed Force. You sent Barry and Wally to the future. You can do this, too.
J'onn J'onzz: What is she talking about?
Mon-El: What's a vibe?
Cisco Ramon: I'll explain later.

Caitlin Snow: Her vitals are low. How long has she been like this?
J'onn J'onzz: A few hours.
Mon-El: Okay, we need to find whoever did this to Kara and punch him repeatedly until he reverses whatever spell he put on her, and I get to punch him first.

Cisco Ramon: All right, J'onn, how do you feel about a little one-two combo? I'm gonna open a breach; you be ready to hit something really hard on the b-side.
Martian Manhunter: Hitting hard, I can do.

The Flash: I don't think that's yours, pal.
Abra Kadabra: Flash.
The Flash: You didn't think I'd want to come meet the newest resident of Iron Heights?
The Flash: No, I assumed that you'd show. I just didn't expect you to be so young, Barry Allen.
The Flash: Now, how do you know who I am?
Abra Kadabra: I'm from the future. You don't believe me? Let's see, uh, 2017. Hmm. How are things going on with your doomed love, Iris West? Or your greatest foe, Savitar?
The Flash: You know Savitar.
Abra Kadabra: I know everything about him, and you.

Cecile Horton: Okay, so, break it down. How did it happen?
Iris West: Um... we were at the apartment, and, um, Barry sang to me. And then he proposed.
Cecile Horton: Oh, my God, that's so romantic. You sing?
Barry Allen: Not as good as Joe.
Joe West: Shut up, Barry.

Cisco Ramon: Looks like things between you and Julian are a little frosty, huh?
Cisco Ramon: It's too soon for the cold puns?

I'm gonna do something to fix that. You're too good of a superhero to lose those powers.

Cisco Ramon: Hey, Julian, how about next time you decide to release my friend's inner ice demon, you do it sometime in July?
Julian Albert: I know you're not being serious. I was trying to save her life, Cisco.
Cisco Ramon: Iris was right. Even H.R. was right. We should've taken her to a hospital.
Julian Albert: Brilliant idea, yes. Expose her meta-human status to the world. That would've been great, wouldn't it?
Cisco Ramon: Hey, guess what? She's gonna do that anyway.

Barry Allen: You can't give up. Your work on relatistic quantum mechanics and its application to inter-spatial theory to manipulate matter on a subatomic level, it's groundbreaking.
Tracy Brand: I haven't shared that hypothesis with anyone, other than my therapist. Who are you?
H.R. Wells: We're therapists.

Cisco Ramon: So... you've gone full-on Killer Frost, huh? New threads and everything.
Killer Frost: No more pencil skirts for me.

Kid Flash: Looks like you remembered how to save the day.
The Flash: Like riding a bike. image

Kid Flash: Looks like you remembered how to save the day.
The Flash: Like riding a bike.

Joe West: So, you said there was an emergency. Where's the fire?
Cecile Horton: Ah, it's funny you should put it like that. Lucius Coolidge.
Barry Allen: Who?
Iris West: Heat Monger.
Cecile Horton: The worst arsonist Central City's seen since Mick Rory went off the grid. That is until Flash here stopped him.
Barry Allen: What's Flash?

Cisco Ramon: So when the Legends found that message in the Waverider from old you saying "Don't trust Barry Allen", it was talking about Savitar Barry Allen.
Cisco Ramon: It's all coming together... in the worst way.

What I remember... is being created as a disposable life. Something to be... thrown away when Barry Allen was done with me. He didn't care about me. Why should I care about his love? image

What I remember... is being created as a disposable life. Something to be... thrown away when Barry Allen was done with me. He didn't care about me. Why should I care about his love?

Leonard Snart: My guess is the power source is most likely here.
Joe West: Why there?
Leonard Snart: Because it's the deepest part of the facility. And if it's as valuable as you say it is, then the deepest recesses of any facility are usually the most secure.
Cisco Ramon: Hmm. Smart, Snart.
Cisco Ramon: Smart, Snart.
Cisco Ramon: I'm gonna keep hacking away and find out for sure.
Barry Allen: Do you have any idea what else might be down there?
Leonard Snart: Doesn't matter. There are only four rules you need to remember: make the plan, execute the plan, expect the plan to go off the rails, throw away the plan. Follow my lead and you'll be fine.

Savitar: Fix this.
Cisco Ramon: Fix what? The Speed Force bazooka? I didn't name it. If I didn't name it, I didn't make it. If I didn't make it, I don't know how it works.
Savitar: Oh, you know enough about it to alter what it does.
Cisco Ramon: Oh, I see. So you want me to alter it. Well, what do you want me to alter into? Like, a hair dryer? A waffle maker? Oh, I know. Maybe something that's gonna fix that thin-crust pizza you call a face.

Savitar: An intradimensional quantum splicer.
Cisco Ramon: A splicer.
Savitar: I do have a plan B. I open a time portal, exposing the Speed Force, you shoot me with that, and I become fragmented throughout all of time. The past, present, future. After that, the paradox can't reach me.
Cisco Ramon: You want splice yourself throughout time? Exist in every single moment there ever was?
Savitar: All of us aware and connected through one consciousness. I'll be everywhere - every hour, every minute. And then, I will rule from the Big Bang until the end of the world.
Cisco Ramon: You wanted us to build this thing.
Savitar: Well, why do you think I let you idiots live? Tracy Brand trapped me in the Speed Force in the future. All I had to do was get her to build this a little earlier and have my best friend make all the adjustments.
Cisco Ramon: I'm not your friend.
Savitar: Get... to work, Francesco.
Cisco Ramon: How about I sit on my ass and let you obliterate permanently from existence? How's that sound?

Nora shouldn't be here.

My name is Iris West, and I was supposed to marry the fastest man alive, but six months ago, he left. I promised him I'd run, so that's what I've been doing these last six months, running.

Caitlin Snow: Whoa. Don't tell me you have Frankenstein under there.
Cisco Ramon: It's Barry's new suit, although right now, I'm having trouble seeing it as anything other than a waste of time.
Caitlin Snow: Cisco...
Cisco Ramon: I know. I should've listened to you. Barry was never trying to communicate with us, but I believed it. I really did. Sometimes, I feel like if I believe in something hard enough, that'll make it real. You know what the worst part is? I didn't do it to save the city. I did it because it gave me an excuse to bring him back. I did it because I miss my friend.

"This house is bitchin'."

I hate teleporters.

I'm just catching up on all the TV I missed while I was stuck in the Speed Force. When you've been gone six months, the world is a minefield of spoilers. But Cisco hooked me up with a 1000-times sped up version of my favorite shows. Aw, Jon Snow died. Oh, he's alive!

Barry Allen: Iris, it's not like I wanted to leave you. I had to put on a brave face, for everyone. But it was killing me inside. And I think part of why I didn't talk it through with you is I was afraid. I was afraid that you would tell me to stay. And I wouldn't have been strong enough not to.
Iris West: Barry, how do you know what I'm going to say if you don't ask me? I am here to help you, especially when everything seems lost. But you have to let me.
Barry Allen: But sometimes it's not about us. Or the team. Sometimes the weight of the whole city falls on my shoulders, and it's up to me to carry it. I'm the Flash.
Iris West: See, that's what you don't get. When I put this ring on my finger, it wasn't just about you or me anymore. It's about us. You are not the Flash, Barry. We are.

Joe West: You put your voice in Barry's suit?
Cisco Ramon: Well, it had to be somebody and my voice is soothing.
Caitlin Snow: How much tech did you put in this suit?
Cisco Ramon: So much.

It's only hoarding if it doesn't pay off.

Iris West: Hey, so we ran the sketches you made us through the CCP database, and...
Joe West: Her name's Becky Sharpe. She's twenty-four years old, no priors.
Barry Allen: No priors? Then why is she in the database?
Joe West: Because in the last three years she's lived in Central City, she's been rear-ended four times, her identity stolen twice.
Iris West: A cat burglar literally burgled her cat.

The Flash: I see her.
Caitlin Snow: She's getting away in a Prius.
The Flash: Last time I checked, the Flash is faster than a Prius.

Cisco Ramon: Okay, you see, Harry? That is bad juju.
Dr. Harry Wells: Okay, Ramon, what you call juju, I call quantum entanglement. Discreet quantum particles are connected, and when triggered, they stimulate a synchronicity that, to the untrained eye... the common eye... could seem luck.

Cisco Ramon: So what are we gonna do?
Barry Allen: I don't know. I mean, I'm not sure yet. I can't get close enough to her without triggering bad luck.
Cisco Ramon: Seriously, that girl's a hazard. Hazard, that's the one. Maybe that means the jinx is gone.
Barry Allen: Her powers only work in her immediate vicinity. She didn't jinx us.

Iris West: Looks like someone tossed this place.
Barry Allen: Yeah. Probably the same guys that hung Dibny off the roof.
Iris West: Why do you think?
Barry Allen: I dunno. Guy like that probably has a long list of people that wanna toss him off rooftops.

Caitlin Snow: Why is the scariest person I've ever seen roaming our halls?
Barry Allen , Joe West: Cisco.

Barry Allen: What are you doing?
Cisco Ramon: I wanted to impress him, and now I can't stop.

Barry Allen: Felicity. How'd you get in here?
Felicity Smoak: I literally walked in here. You have... you have no security, you have no alarms, you have nothing on your door. You guys might want to consider something, anything at all.

Iris West: So much for quiet and classy, right?
Caitlin Snow: Not exactly the bachelorette party you had in mind.
Iris West: Well, saving the city wasn't a bad way to spend the night.

Amunet Black: You and I could have been gods.
Killer Frost: I used to work with a god. Over it.

Ralph Dibny: Wow, this house is, uh...
Cisco Ramon: Bitchin'?
Ralph Dibny: No. Small. Looks bigger from the street.

Joe West: Security guard found him here this morning. We haven't IDed him yet. His personal effects are scattered everywhere, so we didn't find his wallet. But we may find it when we find the rest of his briefcase... and his missing hand.
Barry Allen: Well, judging by that avulsion and the claw marks, I'd say a large predatory animal did this. But whatever it was would have to have four-inch canines, a bite force of 5,000 PSI, and weigh over a ton. That animal doesn't exist.
Joe West: What the hell did this?

Iris West: Looks like our meta isn't restricted to animating just stone.
Barry Allen: No, but she does have some limitations. Out of all the artifacts in the office, she could only control the knight.
Caitlin Snow: So then maybe her psychic imprint abilities are just restricted to effigies.
Barry Allen: It just means "statues."
Ralph Dibny: Yeah, I don't know. Sounds kinda dirty.

Barry Allen: Ouch. All-nighter, huh?
Caitlin Snow: I haven't been this tired since Killer Frost decided to go to Burning Man.

Barry Allen: What about vibing the rest of the bus passengers?
Cisco Ramon: I mean, I-I tried, but, you know, the... the dark matter we released was such a massive space-time event that my energy just reflected back and I ended up vibing myself. I'm pretty sure I relived my own birth. Or was that my death?

Barry Allen: How was Blue Valley?
Wally West: Oh. Self-reflection and a battle with a starfish from outer space gives you perspective.

Iris West: What's this?
Barry Allen: A restraining order. I have to stay 500 feet away from Clifford DeVoe.
Iris West: And are you going to?
Iris West: Barry, this is not you. You've got to stop.
Barry Allen: I can't.
Iris West: You can't or you won't?
Barry Allen: I don't know anymore. I've faced a lot of bad guys, people that would hurt the ones that I love, destroy everything good in the world and think nothing of it, but this guy, he feels more dangerous than all the others combined. And we still barely know anything about him. It scares the hell out of me, Iris.

Barry Allen: There's something I need to tell you. I confronted DeVoe.
Joe West: Oh, come on, Barry. He could get you arrested!
Barry Allen: No, he won't. He wanted me to come.
Caitlin Snow: How do you know?
Barry Allen: Well, for starters, he knows I'm the Flash.
Caitlin Snow: So you were right all along.
Cisco Ramon: We didn't believe you.
Joe West: I'm sorry.
Barry Allen: Don't be. DeVoe's been playing all of us.
Dr. Harry Wells: How?
Barry Allen: It's his powers. He has an intelligence beyond anything we could've imagined. He's orchestrated everything that we've encountered. He's moved us like chess pieces in a game we didn't even know we were playing.
Iris West: How do we stop someone who has super intelligence?
Cisco Ramon: We're pretty smart.
Dr. Harry Wells: Maybe we're not.

Oh, my God. You were right. That mac 'n' cheese looks unbelievable.

Leo Snart: In ten minutes, Red Tornado's gonna bring down this entire facility, and there's nothing we can do to stop that robot.
Oliver Queen: Then we need to reopen the gateway before that happens. Barry, Ray...
Barry Allen: We know. Stop a flying robot somehow.
Oliver Queen: Good. The rest of us will open the breach.
Leo Snart: That's the whole plan?
Barry Allen: Well, as a Snart we know use to say, "Make a plan. Execute the plan. Expect the plan to go off the rails. Throw away the plan."
Leo Snart: Wow. That is... that is terrible advice. I always have a plan, down to the second, so nothing never goes wrong.

Dr. Harry Wells: Rip Van Ramon awakens.
Cisco Ramon: This doesn't look like a wedding.
Caitlin Snow: You missed quite a bit, Cisco.
Dr. Harry Wells: All you need to know is that you are locked up in one of your fabulous anti-meta-human cells with the rest of us. We can't escape.
Cisco Ramon: Of course we can't. That's what I designed them for, genius.

Don't run.

I don't have to run when I'm with you.

Iris West-Allen: This is, like, a lifetime supply of store credit. Why would Rory think that we needed forty toasters?
Barry Allen: He said that there was some kind of fire sale.
Iris West-Allen: He stole them.
Barry Allen: He definitely stole them.

Amunet Black: Why can't you just appreciate how nice I've been to you?
Caitlin Snow: I don't think you understand the meaning of the word "nice".
Amunet Black: Now, now. It's not about words. It's about actions. And I have not stabbed you or punched you or shot a deadly piece of metal at you once.
Amunet Black: Today.

Are you a time traveler? 'Cause those white girl dreads came straight from the '90s.

Are you a time traveler? 'Cause those white girl dreads came straight from the '90s.

My name is Barry Allen. And, I'm an innocent man. I know that you'll find my fingerprints all over his body, and I know that you'll find his DNA on mine. But, I don't know... Who stabbed him, or how he ended up in my loft. All I can tell you is I'm being framed, for something I didn't do. I didn't kill Clifford DeVoe.

Cisco Ramon: Still no word from the courthouse.
Caitlin Snow: That's good news, right? No news is good news?
Dr. Harry Wells: No, good news is good news. No news is miscommunication.

Cisco Ramon: Where do I breach him?
Dr. Harry Wells: Ramon, no, you... you drop him in a breach, he could explode.
Cisco Ramon: And Fallout's fallout would kill us all.
Dr. Harry Wells: Do you think?

Barry Allen: Is Cisco having any luck figuring out how to bypass the system? Because once he does that, I could phase out of here. I could help you track him.
Joe West: Barry, you need to stay put for now. Trickster is just a messed-up kid. We can handle him.
Barry Allen: No, I know, of course. I just... I'm already tired of feeling useless, you know?
Joe West: The only thing you should focus on in here is watching your back. Pretty sure cops can't touch inmates. Otherwise, I'd give you a hug. Stay strong, Bar.

Iris West-Allen: Harry, how are you coming with a solvent for Trickster's axid?
Dr. Harry Wells: Well, slowly. Very difficult to neutralize a solvent that hasn't existed until today.
Iris West-Allen: You've got 59 minutes.
Dr. Harry Wells: All I need is 58.

Caitlin Snow: Looks like Axel was born nine months after Zoey was last seen. I bet she left to help take care of her son.
Iris West-Allen: And she came back to bust him out of prison, and pick up where she left off.
Joe West: Well, I'm digging into CCPD files to see if she had any other known associates.
Dr. Harry Wells: I'll set the satellite to do a search grid.

Cisco Ramon: Hey, how about you hook me up with some of that gum?
Dr. Harry Wells: Why don't you breach yourself?
Cisco Ramon: That sounds like an insult.
Dr. Harry Wells: Kind of was.

Big Sir: What you're peddling. It's dangerous.
Barry Allen: W-what's dangerous?
Big Sir: Hope. I've been in here long enough to understand that in prison, hope is the most dangerous thing.
Barry Allen: Wait, did you get that from "Shawshank"?
Big Sir: No. I got that from being in prison. Tell your friends to stop wasting their time.

Joe West: Sylbert Rundine.
Iris West-Allen: Why does every villain in this city have a name that sounds like it came out of a comic book?

Ralph Dibny: Look, this is all just fantastic, but we're not really gonna do this.
Cisco Ramon: Yeah, I mean, um, we've already got a lot on our plate just trying to free one innocent man.
Caitlin Snow: We all want Barry to be free, but I don't think that there's much else we can do right now. We kinda hit a wall.
Joe West: Well, we're not gonna get through that wall while we're working on this.
Iris West-Allen: It's just one case.
Dr. Harry Wells: And it's a case that we have to take. Allen has made one request of us since he's been incarcerated, and the request don't even involve himself. We have to take this case.
Cisco Ramon: It's unsettling how convincing you can be sometimes.

Cisco Ramon: Let's test your skills for real. What number am I thinking of?
Cecile Horton: Three. 11. 25. Three again. Bulbasaur. What the hell is a Bulbasaur?
Cisco Ramon: That's so weird. Why would I be thinking of Pokémon at a time like

Becky Sharpe: Using my powers just hurt those around me. My good luck just jinxed everyone else. You know, you seem to really care about people - not like the type of person who'd take someone's life.
Barry Allen: I didn't kill that teacher. I wouldn't take a life. You know, not every meta uses their powers to hurt people. Some use to help others, to protect people. Our powers don't decide who we are. We do.

Ralph Dibny: You know, that actually wasn't a really bad pep talk.
Killer Frost: Well, it's your turn next time. If I ever decide to go full villain next time, you can give me the lame heart to heart.
Ralph Dibny: Full villain? Wait... Wait. I know how to fix this. I gotta see a girl about a guy. Thank you, Frosty Oprah.

Joe West: Wolfe is trafficking meta-humans? Is everybody crooked in this town?
Cisco Ramon: Ah, he always did look smug in those Italian wool suits. Oh, my God, he's literally wolf in sheep's clothing.

I saw up close what DeVoe did to Becky. To all of them. They... and I... I couldn't do anything except just stand and watch it happen. DeVoe is ruthless. He is not gonna stop until he's taken her powers and her life. He's not gonna go easy on her, so neither can I.

Dr. Harry Wells: What's that? What are you guys doing? What are those faces?
Iris West-Allen: When Savitar came to S.T.A.R. Labs, he said we would build a device to use against DeVoe.
Barry Allen: The cerebral inhibitor.
Dr. Harry Wells: I wish I'd known that before I spent all this time trying to come up with a second name. Naming is hard.

Iris West-Allen: So Izzy Bowin can control music.
Cisco Ramon: More like soundwaves.
Ralph Dibny: Soundwave. That's a great name.
Cisco Ramon: It would be, if it wasn't already taken by a Transformer.

You are my lightning rod, Iris.

Barry Allen: How is it we live together, work together, sleep in the same bed together, but it still feels like we don't spend any real time as husband and wife?
Dr. Harry Wells: Allen, West-Allen, Cortex, now!
Iris West-Allen: I have no idea.

Barry Allen: Has anyone seen Ralph today?
Caitlin Snow: No, he's downstairs moving in. He is very nervous.
Dr. Harry Wells: I don't know why.
Cisco Ramon: I don't know why, either. He's a superhero. People with powers are ready for anything.
Cisco Ramon: Ah! Son of a breach!

Barry Allen: Has anyone seen Ralph today?
Caitlin Snow: No, he's downstairs moving in. He is very nervous.
Dr. Harry Wells: I don't know why.
Cisco Ramon: I don't know why, either. He's a superhero. People with powers are ready for anything.
Cisco Ramon: Ah! Son of a breach!

The Flash: I lost my speed.
Joe West: What do you mean you lost your speed?
Iris West-Allen: Uh, guys, I think I found it.

Joe West: When I mentioned spending more time together, I meant family barbecues, not questioning people of interest.
Iris West-Allen: I know. I just want people to know that I am not afraid to go out in the field every once in a while.
Joe West: Well, who says you are?
Iris West-Allen: Ralph.
Joe West: Ralph? He should talk. He won't even leave the building.

Caitlin Snow: Cisco, why can't you just help him?
Cisco Ramon: Why am I the only one who think putting a rageoholic and dark matter is a bad idea?
Caitlin Snow: He's trying to stop DeVoe. That's not a bad idea.
Cisco Ramon: He's trying to match his intellect with a mad man whose innovations are warping his brain. Have you not seen "Spider-Man 2?"
Caitlin Snow: No.

Cisco Ramon: What is that?
Dr. Harry Wells: This is an intelligence booster. You put this thing on Dibny here, and even he would be able to understand the point source construction. You put it on a real genius, I'll finally be able to outthink the Thinker.
Cisco Ramon: You know what, I'm not sure this thinking cap is the best idea you've ever had.
Dr. Harry Wells: It's an intelligence booster.
Cisco Ramon: It looks like a thinking cap.

Null: Didn't see that coming.
The Flash: It's kind of the point.
Null: No, you didn't see that coming. See, I call it my getaway car. 'Cause either the person in there dies, or you let me get away.

Barry Allen: What?
Iris West-Allen: Nothing. It's just... you went out into the field, you had a plan, and... it didn't work.
Barry Allen: But they do for DeVoe. Harry's not wrong. DeVoe's gone over every possible outcome before making his plans.
Iris West-Allen: Which we can't do, and neither can Harry.
Barry Allen: Well, then what are we supposed to do? I mean, you just want us to ad-lib like Ralph wants us to?
Iris West-Allen: Barry, you didn't see it, but when you were gone, Ralph rose to the occasion. He cracked jokes. He thought outside the box. I mean, he got the job done in the way that he knows how. So, the question is, are you upset with Ralph because you think he's screwing around or because he's not following your plan?

Cisco Ramon: He can't blast because he's getting older?
Caitlin Snow: Mm-hmm. Powers like yours require a lot of energy. And when that energy starts to dwindle...
Cisco Ramon: The vibe blasts are... the first things to go.
Caitlin Snow: I think you have to tell him.
Cisco Ramon: He's never, ever gonna let me see Gypsy again if I tell him. He's probably gonna send a knife flying through my skull if I tell him.
Caitlin Snow: He might. But it's the right thing to do.

Cisco Ramon: I'm curious, have you never looked at a mirror before?
Breacher: I'm not a teenage girl!
Cisco Ramon: OK, you are not a teenage girl!

Ralph Dibny: Good old CCTA, bus number 405, where I was gifted with pretty much the best powers ever. If it wasn't for this old girl, I'd still have to leave the couch when I need to use the bathroom, you know, because I can...
Barry Allen: Yes, I know.

Marlize DeVoe: Ah... Mrs. West-Allen, I was hoping we'd meet again.
Iris West-Allen: You might change your mind about that pretty soon.
Marlize DeVoe: Ah... there's that passion from our chat in the courthouse. But I do remember warning you that it could easily be destroyed.
Iris West-Allen: And I remember you asking me what I was willing to do for my husband. How about I show you?

Joe West: Harry's really loving that Thinking Cap, huh?
Cisco Ramon: Oh, my God. It's like the best friend he never had. I mean, he wears this thing everywhere. I'm pretty sure I saw him step out of the shower with it. I want to know what kinda problem he was trying to solve there. Nope. Nope, I-I don't wanna know.

Leo Snart: I got to say, on any Earth, Snarts have style. Perfect fit.
Barry Allen: Thought you could do something with it.
Caitlin Snow: You wear it well.
Leo Snart: Thank you. You sure you can't come to the wedding? I could put all of you at a table with Ray's uncle Skip. He murders the Macarena.

Barry Allen: All right, look, I think we take Highway 14. It's as rural as we're gonna get. And it's a straight shot to New Brighten. Best chance to get Fallout to safety.
Leo Snart: Sounds like a plan, Barry. You know how I feel about plans.

Joe West: So we're sure that Fallout is secure?
Iris West-Allen: Well, Lyla said that she had some people who would be very interested in helping Borman control his powers. She took him to a different A.R.G.U.S. black-ops site way off the grid.
Joe West: How far off the grid?
Cisco Ramon: Like, it would take Jack Ryan two Tom Clancy novels to find him.

Barry Allen: What's that?
Caitlin Snow: I whipped up this cocktail of atomized DTPA and potassium iodide. It should flood our thyroids with enough non-radioactive iodine so that if our containment suit doesn't work, it should offer us some protection from radiation.
Leo Snart: Some protection. How vaguely reassuring.

The Flash: We need your help on our Earth.
Leo Snart: Right now? I'm kinda busy.
Vibe: Doing what? Dying?
Leo Snart: Touché.

Joe West: What would DeVoe be doing with a solar panel?
Barry Allen: Nothing, on its own. He's gotta be building something.

Barry Allen: What are we dealing with?
Joe West: Uh, first of all, we're trying to determine what was in that vault. Watch your step right here. Uh, there was no drilling, there was no lock picked. And the only thing anyone about what was in the vault was that it was some sort of secretive technology. Also, security guard here was a 24 year old, apparently shot himself.
Iris West-Allen: Wait, a robbery and a suicide?
Joe West: He was newly married. Has an infant at home. This is smelling like some meta madness to me.
Barry Allen: Who else can Kilg%re a retinal scan and Dibny a vault lock?

Cisco Ramon: Okay. So, where shall we start? I'm thinking, if we can gain acc-
Cisco Ramon: -ess to their files...
Barry Allen: Alloy 1771? I mean, that's the only item missing from the inventory files.
Cisco Ramon: Or I can just... stand here and look pretty.

Amunet Black: Like Norvock, I must be on my way.
The Flash: Amunet, no! Hey! You leave, there's no way we can stop DeVoe's satellites.
Joe West: She was never gonna help us. She just wanted her metal.
Amunet Black: Oh... truthfully, I-I did consider it. I did. But a good player knows when to fold. And the professer certainly has a better hand, so... don't try to stop me.
Amunet Black: After all, I am packing.

Amunet Black: Just when I thought I'd considered every option for where Norvock might be skulking, I remembered whenever the fuzz used to be on to one of our deals, I would plant a rumor that it was going down at a false location.
Joe West: Ah, a fake-out to keep "the fuzz" off your tracks.
Amunet Black: Mm!
Caitlin Snow: So that's where we think Norvock is, in the abandoned Reynolds substation.
Iris West-Allen: Underground. That's why the shards weren't registering on the satelite.
Barry Allen: All right, why don't the three of us go get your shards? When we'll be armed and ready to take out DeVoe's satellites.
Caitlin Snow: I'm coming, too. I'll get the cold gun.

Joe West: Hey, Caitlin?
Caitlin Snow: Hmm?
Joe West: Do you have any ibuprofen? Reading up on all this organic matter has given me an organic migraine.

Harrison Wolfgang Wells: Simple Harry is truly simple Harry now.
Cisco Ramon: No, that's not what's happening!

Clifford DeVoe: "Once upon in some remote corner of that universe, there was a star upon which clever beasts invented knowing."
The Flash: You're quoting Nietzsche at me?
Clifford DeVoe: You destroyed a satellite. Top marks, quick boy. You can destroy a thousand more and you will still march closer to the Enlightenment.
The Flash: I forget what Nietzsche said about wiping minds. I must've skipped philosophy class...
Clifford DeVoe: Did I teach you nothing this year? Has nothing pierced your thick cowl? Think of it. Or rather don't. You'll just end up hurting yourself, so let me explain. A world enlightened. Within a day, all soldiers will lay down their arms. Every nuclear weapon will be disarmed within six months. Poverty, famine, disease - eradicated. We will clean up the streets. People will put down their idiot phones and become curious again, and I will be there to teach them. *I* - not you - will save this godforsaken world.
The Flash: No, you'll just control it. You want to take away free will.
Clifford DeVoe: A pittance for humanity to pay to know peace.
The Flash: But we won't know each other. Parents wouldn't remember their kids. Husbands won't remember their wives.
Clifford DeVoe: Good. You hit upon precisely the point. Emotion is the father of all error. Chemicals in our brain that distract us, impede progress. And the most destructive and ridiculous imbalance of all is that thing you feebles call love. I learned this from experience, Mr. Allen. And soon... you will too.

Marlize DeVoe: It's rude to break into a person's home uninvited. And dangerous when the person is holding a grudge and a katana. Why are you here?
Dr. Harry Wells: I got this. We're here, Marlize... we're here because you... because... Wait, uh, you... You have... You - you've... I can't. I can't.
Marlize DeVoe: He can't verbalize it. Not anymore. Just like we hypothesized but never observed before. You're experiencing the penultimate stages of the Enlightenment. Your mind is being rebooted. Soon you will be with memories, without relationships. Just a blank slate so that Clifford may re-educate you. Soon we'll all be just like you.
Iris West-Allen: Marlize, we have to stop him. Your husband has gone too far, and I think you know it, or you'd be with him right now.
Marlize DeVoe: Yes, I left my husband. But that doesn't change the fact that he's right. If anything, his betrayal proves his very point. Man corrupts even the best of ideas.
Iris West-Allen: Pessimism isn't smarter than optimism. In this life the bravest thing you can be is optimistic.
Marlize DeVoe: Familiar words.
Iris West-Allen: You said them when you were at Oxford. Two weeks before you met Clifford DeVoe.
Marlize DeVoe: I gave a speech on technology and the elimination of world hunger. I truly believed it could be done.
Iris West-Allen: He tried to change you, Marlize. But I think deep down, you are still an optimist. You still believe in humanity. And I believe in you. You asked me what I was willing to do for my husband. And I'm gonna ask you. What are you willing to do for the world?:

Gideon: Hello, Professor DeVoe.
Barry Allen: No, no, no.
Barry Allen: Come on. Come on.
Barry Allen: DeVoe! DeVoe! DeVoe!
Gideon: Initiating Enlightenment protocol.
Clifford DeVoe: Let there be light.
Caitlin Snow: He did it.
Cisco Ramon: The Enlightenment.
Caitlin Snow: What are we gonna do?
Barry Allen: I don't know.

Cisco Ramon: You figure it out yet?
Barry Allen: No. I-I shut down the generator. I can save the hostages, but DeVoe still gets away, and then, you know.
Cisco Ramon: Actually, I meant have you figured out how come you lost your damn mind?
Barry Allen: Okay. Look, I'm sorry. I'm just...
Cisco Ramon: You're just trying to keep us safe. I know. It's starting to sound real familiar coming out of your mouth.

Clifford DeVoe: How did you beat me?
Barry Allen: I didn't. We did.
Marlize DeVoe: Their emotional attachment to Mr. Dibny have made them stronger than you would ever be, Clifford. But then, you wouldn't understand.
Clifford DeVoe: No! This is not my will!
Ralph Dibny: [speaking through DeVoe] Not anymore. It's mine.

Cisco Ramon: DeVoe must've predicted Harry would build his own thinking cap and power it with the dark matter from this tube.
Barry Allen: Dark matter that he can siphon off S.T.A.R. Labs to use to infect the world. Harry was his guinea pig. He knew if he could reboot Harry's brain, he could reboot everyone's. What about Gideon, could she hack into the satellites?
Cisco Ramon: No, purple haze took her out too. What do we do?
Barry Allen: I don't know.
Iris West-Allen: [walks in the Time Vault with Marlize] It's okay, Barry. I think I do.

Caitlin Snow: Cecile's powers are connected to her pregnancy. Her contractions must be putting a strain on her transcranial link.
Marlize DeVoe: No, no, no. We need to do something about that.
Iris West-Allen: We can't stop her from having a baby, Marlize.
Marlize DeVoe: We have to, Mrs. West-Allen, or this will never work. She's the only way to get Barry in and out of Clifford's mind.
Cisco Ramon: Everyone, chill; it's not like Cecile's gonna lose her powers if she has this baby. Cecile's gonna lose her powers if she has this baby? Won't that leave Barry stranded in DeVoe's mind?
Marlize DeVoe: I'm afraid so.
Cisco Ramon: Information you may have wanted to share, like, way before now.

Cisco Ramon: The program completed. It should have worked. Hey, Harry. Harry?
Dr. Harry Wells: Don't worry. You have been and will always be... my friend.
Cisco Ramon: Khan.
Cisco Ramon , Dr. Harry Wells: Kill them.
Cisco Ramon: Oh, my God.
Iris West-Allen: "Star Wars."

Did all of these suits shrink? And why does it smell so bad?

Joe West: Damn.
Iris West-Allen: Dad.
Joe West: You found my spot.
Iris West-Allen: You knew about this?
Joe West: I've been napping in here since day one.
Barry Allen: Uh, well, Nora was gonna stay here, if that's all right with you.
Joe West: Okay, well, now I can get to know my granddaughter.

Caitlin Snow: What did you think we meant when we said "Harry was from Earth-2"?
Ralph Dibny: That is he from Earth, also.

Caitlin Snow: Killer Frost has been gone since the night that DeVoe took over your body.
Ralph Dibny: Jeez, Louise! No one tells me anything.

Nora West-Allen: I know King Shark is technically a bad guy, but you should see... just wait. When he fights Grodd, it's...
Cisco Ramon: Um! Spoiler alert.

Barry Allen: Hey, I need your help.
Joe West: That's blunt.

Iris West-Allen: Why didn't you guys tells us about this before?
Caitlin Snow: Oh, my God.
Cecile Horton: Barry never returns?
Joe West: That's why you came here. To see your father, because you were raised without him.

Cisco Ramon: It's not too late for you to change things with your dad.
Caitlin Snow: But what if he doesn't want anything to do with me?
Cisco Ramon: Maybe he doesn't. But wouldn't you rather face that truth instead of spending the rest of your life wondering?

Cisco Ramon: Ralphy is kind. Ralphy is great. Ralphy is a brilliant detective.
Ralph Dibny: Yeah, buddy, I mean, I know all that. But it works a lot better if you use your name instead.
Cisco Ramon: Cisco is creative. Cisco is good. Cisco is smarter than your average bear. That's Yogi's. You stole Yogi's affirmation.
Ralph Dibny: Yeah, I did, 'cause it's a winner. You don't see him moping over any lady bears.

Barry Allen: I think I understand how you're feeling. Sometimes our powers are so extraordinary, it makes our mistakes feel amplified, especially guilt.
Nora West-Allen: But I should feel guilty. I've never messed up this badly before, and I can't stop thinking about it.
Barry Allen: That's just 'cause you care. It's okay, it's a good thing. But... Nora, if every time you make a mistake, you just rush in to fix it, you're only gonna make things worse. Trust me, I know that better than anyone. You just gotta have a little more patience. Take a moment, think before you act, fix the problem the right way.

Joe West: He made these comments about family and cherishing them. And then the way he picked up Jenna's blanket, and I got this... feeling when I looked in his eyes.
Iris West-Allen: What... what kind of feeling?
Joe West: I think Cicada's a father.

Caitlin Snow: I'm sorry we came all this way for no reason.
Ralph Dibny: No, I'm impressed. Your mom is a really good liar.
Caitlin Snow: Yeah. I know she forged this death certificate. I just... she's never gonna tell us why. We've hit a brick wall.
Ralph Dibny: Ah, but where you see a wall, this detective sees a brick door with no handle.
Ralph Dibny: What I mean is, I know exactly how to get what we came for.

Cisco Ramon: So you thought you could leave to another Earth without paying us back?
Sherloque Wells: Worked on my fourth wife and my sixth. Same woman.

Iris West-Allen: The dagger part still doesn't make sense. I mean, things cannot become metas, right?
Barry Allen: I don't know about that. Our satellite didn't just create new metas. It created meta-tech.
Iris West-Allen: Which puts meta-human abilities in the hands of anyone.

Sherloque Wells: I have frightened you, Dr. Snow.
Caitlin Snow: I assume you came here for some other reason than murdering me?

Iris West-Allen: Tripped alarm at Central City Art Gallery. Someone stole a Monet.
Barry Allen: At 10:00 a.m.? That's bold.

Iris West-Allen: I'll drive.
Ralph Dibny: Actually, I wanna try something. Saw it in a comic book.

Cisco Ramon: When DeVoe took over Sally, he also launched four of his own satellites to bring about the Enlightenment, but now that he's gone, maybe we can work around the... multiplexed burst-model channels and the inter-SV handoff.
Cisco Ramon: We've got eyes and ears. We've got eyes and ears!
Caitlin Snow: I knew you could do it.
Cisco Ramon: Ah!
Caitlin Snow: Oh, sorry.
Cisco Ramon: That was dumb.

Cisco Ramon: No cold signatures in the area. Snow Country for Old Men must be miles away, 'cause he sure as hell isn't in Central City.
Caitlin Snow: Well, we have to find him. I mean, Icicle wouldn't have gone to all this trouble to kill my dad if there wasn't a piece of him still left.
Barry Allen: We'll find him.

Iris West-Allen: How are we supposed to investigate when you're making tea, Sherloque?
Sherloque Wells: Well, you seem very annoyed, mademoiselle.
Nora West-Allen: No shrap, Sherlock.
Sherloque Wells: Sherloque.
Nora West-Allen: Sorry for the language, Mom.

Caitlin Snow: Dad! Please, I know you're in there. Don't do this.
Icicle: Do you think Thomas can hear you, Caity? Thomas hasn't been able to hear anything for a very long time.

Barry Allen: Uh, is it safe for this to be here?
Cisco Ramon: Yeah, a little dark matter never hurt anybody.

Mark Mardon: I didn't know that Joslyn was busting me out. I didn't know she'd do half the things she does. I haven't spoken to her in years.
The Flash: And you expect me to believe she woke up this morning and was like
The Flash: "You know what? I wanna break my dad out of Iron Heights"?

Iris West-Allen: Barry? Nora, do you see him?
XS: I, uh... I...
XS: I see him. He's still here.

Iris West-Allen: What's going on?
Caitlin Snow: I-I'm seeing a massive electrical surge at the power station downtown.
Iris West-Allen: Barry, Nora, you're up.

Sherloque Wells: I don't understand. Explain again to me what the difference between this day and every other day in America?
Cisco Ramon: It's a holiday when we all get together and celebrate and eat a ton of food. Like, a gross amount.
Sherloque Wells: Again, what the difference between this day and every other day in America?

Eobard Thawne: So, who made this?
Barry Allen: Someone smarter than you.
Eobard Thawne: I doubt that. You know, Allen, for your plan to work, you're gonna actually have to have his dagger in your possession.
Barry Allen: We've got that covered.
Eobard Thawne: You've got that covered. How's that?
Nora West-Allen: With this.
Eobard Thawne: Is it... is that...
Barry Allen: A piece of Savitar's suit, yeah.

Barry Allen: You think she should come with me?
Iris West-Allen: Yeah, Barry, I do.
Barry Allen: Iris, if I do this, I'm going back to some crazy times. Savitar, Zoom, Thawne. Speedsters...
Iris West-Allen: Who you've all outsmarted and defeated. Look, this was her idea, Barry. Her solution. And it's a good one. So unless you have a better reason why she should stay back, let her do this.

Sherloque Wells: What is this?
Cisco Ramon: What is that, Nora's journal? What, are you stealing now?
Sherloque Wells: No. Yes, but for good reason.

Oliver Queen: Why are we in your secret prison?
Barry Allen: It's not a prison. It's a Tesla conductor tube that dampens meta-powers... Okay, it's a prison.

Iris West-Allen: I guess you forgot you can't get drunk?
Oliver Queen: This day could not get any worse.

Caitlin Snow: Were you able to get in touch with A.R.G.U.S.?
Cisco Ramon: Well, I tried, but I kept getting interference at 650 nanometers.
Caitlin Snow: Isn't that the wavelength for red light?
Cisco Ramon: Red light, exactly. And when I checked the city's weather cams, this is what I found. Red skies, yellow lightning.
Caitlin Snow: So you think Barry and Oliver's shared psychosis is a result of... weird weather?
Cisco Ramon: Stranger things, right?
Caitlin Snow: Okay. I'll run their scans again.

Cisco Ramon: Hey, what are you doing there? Just hit the guy with a lightning punch.
Elseworlds Flash: You have failed this city.
Cisco Ramon: Pretty sure that's not your line.

Iris West-Allen: Being a parent sure is hard sometimes.
Barry Allen: Yeah, it is. But there's nothing like it.

Cisco Ramon: Caitlin, why did you bring me here?
Caitlin Snow: Because, despite our last encounter with him, he did create a meta-gene, so I was thinking that you could use his research to do the reverse.
Cisco Ramon: Um... okay, don't look now, but if I didn't know any better, I'd say this feels a lot like you helping me make a meta-human cure.
Caitlin Snow: I couldn't stop thinking about what you said about how a cure would give you a second chance at a normal life. No friend would stand in the way of that.
Cisco Ramon: But there is a difference between you standing in my way and you actively helping me.
Caitlin Snow: I still think this is dangerous, but maybe if I'm involved, we can have some ground rules? Like the first, and most important, we will never, ever, force a cure on anyone.
Cisco Ramon: Okay. Rule number one. We're not just here to make a cure. We're here to make a choice.

The Flash: You're never gonna hurt my daughter again.
XS: Dad! No.
XS: Oh, I'm sorry. I let him get away.
The Flash: No. You brought me back.

Iris West-Allen: Don't give up, okay? Growth is growth.
Nora West-Allen: Normal axon growth rate reaches five millimeters a day in a large nerve. With speed healing, mine should be over a hundred.
Iris West-Allen: How do you know that?
Nora West-Allen: I took neuro-regeneration in my fifth grade STEM class.
Iris West-Allen: I took fractions in fifth grade.
Nora West-Allen: What if I don't heal, mom? What if I never get better?
Nora West-Allen: Can I just be left alone for a little bit, please?

Caitlin Snow: [seeing her restored glassboard wrapped with a bow] Killer Frost, you shouldn't have.
Killer Frost: It's the closest you're getting to an apology from me, so...
Caitlin Snow: Well, maybe that's why I can hear you without the MAD 2.0? Or maybe it's because you've stopped hating me?
Killer Frost: I didn't hate you, I thought you were being stupid. There's a difference.

Sherloque Wells: Which pair would like to volunteer for this mission? I suggest the speedsters for this to be accomplished so quick.
Barry Allen: Yeah.
Sherloque Wells: Elected.
Barry Allen: Hey, if you see a memory of me stealing a blank Scrabble tile, it's not what it looks like, all right?

Caitlin Snow: Neural oscilations are normal. You three are perfectly healthy. Oh, and we think we've figured out how you two ended up in Nora's brain.
Cisco Ramon: That is a satellite shard full of dark matter in Grace's head.
Sherloque Wells: Mon dieu.
Caitlin Snow: Sometimes surgeons leave a piece of shrapnel in a patient's brain if it's too dangerous to remove, and we think that the dark matter was seeping out to create a barrier around her brain. We can't go back in as long as it's there. It's too dangerous.

Cisco Ramon: Let me run through this again. So, Mr. Truck, you said? You've seen Cicada here?
Truck: Dude's been up in here like a mean fungus.
Ralph Dibny: I see, and how is the White Russian Hacker?
Cisco Ramon: You wanna focus up here?
Cisco Ramon: So, can you tell me was he violent?
Truck: Hell, yeah. Every Thursday, comes in and assaults anyone in here.
Cisco Ramon: Unnecessary. But okay.

Barry Allen: Well, what do you think?
Iris West-Allen: Looks great.
Barry Allen: I mean, I can move the couch against the wall, if that'll help.
Barry Allen: Iris, it's just couch in the corner or against the wall is pretty much the extent of my interior design knowledge.

Caitlin Snow: Van Horn Industries created a peaceful anti-riot device called a Neuro-Stasis Field Generator. It's basically a bio-EMP that can immobilize any living organism within a confined radius. Of course, the new devices they had built were stolen. I wouldn't even know where to begin looking for them.
Ralph Dibny: I do.
Ralph Dibny: Can you at least try not to look so surprised? Look, if we need this, uh neo-Matrix whatever it is, if it's stolen tech, I think I know where to look.

Barry Allen: Sherloque was right. One hour, it's cooked.
Barry Allen: Something happen while I was gone?

Cisco Ramon: Oh, god. Not the Book of Ralph again!
Ralph Dibny: Yeah, buddy. You successfully completed my 27 steps to getting over the love of your life. Gypsy is in the past, you have a new siren, so now it's time for... the art of love.
Cisco Ramon: Um, Caitlin?
Caitlin Snow: I've gotta finish working on the device to inject the cure.
Sherloque Wells: Also I have to inject the device for the cure.
Cisco Ramon: I-I-Iris?
Iris West-Allen: Oh, no, this is all you, man. I got an article I gotta write. Let me know when Barry gets back.
Cisco Ramon: Help me.

Cisco Ramon: Cisco Ramon, tonight you've got yourself a hot date and a meta-human cure. We're unstoppable.
Cisco Ramon: Ohh, schrap.

Barry Allen: Oh, Lyla, this is, um... my daughter, Nora.
Lyla Michaels: Your daughter?
Barry Allen: Yeah.
Nora West-Allen: I'm from...
Lyla Michaels: The future, I'm guessing.
Nora West-Allen: Weird, right?
Lyla Michaels: No weirder than waking up one day to find out that your son used to be your daughter.

Lyla Michaels: So, why King Shark?
Caitlin Snow: Dark matter levels vary from meta-human to meta-human, but Shay Lamden's case is the most extreme we've seen, so we think if we could reverse the effects of a high level mutation like his...
Lyla Michaels: You can help all meta-humans.
Cisco Ramon: Look, we know King Shark has limited speech, but we're wondering could we try and talk to him? If we're gonna do this, we're gonna need his permission.
Lyla Michaels: Well, you're in luck, Cisco. Lately, he's been quite talkative.

Cisco Ramon: Ladies and gentlemen, we finally have our hands on the meta-human cure. Cool, Cool. It's not like I spent weeks in the frozen tundra or anything.
Sherloque Wells: No, no, no. I think that just people are waiting for inevitable "but" that follows such a big statement.
Cisco Ramon: Mmm, no, it's done, and thanks to Caitlin, we even have a way to deliver our silver bullet, so, no "buts."
Sherloque Wells: I believe there is a big "but" coming.
Caitlin Snow: But we need to test the cure on a meta-human.
Sherloque Wells: There it is.

Caitlin Snow: I thought we scanned Grace for meta powers when Nora entered her brain.
Cisco Ramon: We did, but that was back when her DNA was 100% human.
Sherloque Wells: Her powers must have activated in just the last few weeks, right?
Barry Allen: Yeah, Ambres told Joe that the wound in Grace's head recently started glowing and mutating.
Cisco Ramon: Now all we need to do is get Dwyer to listen to you, again.

Sherloque Wells: You two did this.
Cisco Ramon: You made her.
Sherloque Wells: You are responsible.

But secrets are like walls, and... you can't really know someone with walls between you.

Iris West-Allen: What are you doing, Sherloque?
Sherloque Wells: Well, I'm pursuing a new lead to identify the mystery Cicada.
Iris West-Allen: Well, if you needed information about the Time Sphere, you could've just asked.
Sherloque Wells: That's right, but memory can be deceiving. Especially for a regular human. No, I prefer a primary source.
Iris West-Allen: And this new lead, were you pursuing it last night, too?
Sherloque Wells: That's right.
Iris West-Allen: And all last weekend?
Sherloque Wells: That's right. I am working very hard to get...
Sherloque Wells: To get what I want.

Barry Allen: How was Nora able to see what Grace was seeing?
Caitlin Snow: Nora and Grace seem to be psychically connected. I think it's because of the time that Nora spent in Grace's brain.
Cecile Horton: Is there any sign of her?
Cisco Ramon: No. She definitely ghosted.
Nora West-Allen: What about Vickie and her family?
Cecile Horton: Uh, federal protection. They're gonna be fine. They're getting new identities as we speak.

Cue up Operation: Shazam.

Eobard Thawne: So she finally came clean. Or did you figure it out all by yourself?
Barry Allen: One wasn't enough? You had to try to take my daughter from me too? MY DAUGHTER!
Eobard Thawne: I knew you'd react like this. You're always so emotional, which is why I had keep all of this from you. You can't blame the Little Runner, Barry. She just wanted to spend time with her dad. Don't hold that against her. Consider it a condemned man's last request.
Barry Allen: You always thought you were so much smarter than us, Thawne. But you lost. And now you're finally gonna get what you deserve.

Barry Allen: What are you doing?
Iris West-Allen: I'm giving our daughter the chance to explain this for herself.

Cecile Horton: The one person in the world she thought she could trust died in her arms.
Caitlin Snow: Nora must have felt completely alone.
Barry Allen: But she wasn't.
Iris West-Allen: Yes, she was. Because I wasn't honest with her.
Barry Allen: Iris...
Iris West-Allen: After all I did, she gave me a second chance. It's the least we can do for her.
Nora West-Allen: Mom?
Iris West-Allen: Don't make me regret this.

Barry Allen: I've got a cold spike.
Sherloque Wells: That's quite a stack of needles.

Ralph Dibny: I know how Barry can be. But you guys are like the Meghan and Harry of superhero royalty. Your love is eternal. You two will talk and-and...
Iris West-Allen: We did talk. I want Nora to stay here, he doesn't. How do we solve that?
Cecile Horton: Okay, Iris, honey. I haven't always been in the near-perfect relationship that I'm in now. So take it from someone with experience, the only way you two solve this problem is together. And you're not going to find your answers here.
Iris West-Allen: Yeah, you're right.
Cecile Horton: You need to go after her.
Ralph Dibny: Oh, come on. Give me a break. Have you seen her right hook?
Iris West-Allen: Ralph, she's hurt, I know. But there's something more. I feel it. She's... determined.

Caitlin Snow: Dad, I told you to go.
Thomas Snow: I already left once before. I left both of you. Worst mistake I've ever made in my entire life. I wasn't gonna make that again.

XS: You still don't trust me.
Barry Allen: Nora, trust takes time.
XS: Then what's to stop you from sending me back the next time you get pissed at me? Nothing. Because you've given up on me again. Given up on me like you do every time!
Barry Allen: Nora, what are you doing?
XS: You know, I came back here to meet you. And the second I got here, you started pushing me away. And then you left me in the future. You just dumped me in the middle of the street and walked away!
Barry Allen: You have to stop.
XS: And you didn't come back with mom to bring me back. Because you don't want me here. You don't want me at all!
Barry Allen: Nora, please.
XS: I hate you!

Joe West: What the hell is that?
Iris West-Allen: You don't want to know.

Caitlin Snow: Yeah, but the minute you got "The Book of Ralph" back from Cisco, you tried to give it away again. Don't you want to use it? Try to find someone special for yourself?
Ralph Dibny: Caitlin... look... "Book of Ralph"... works great for other people, but... never actually worked for me. I know I'm not... built for love... And that's okay.
Caitlin Snow: Ralph Dibny. You are kind, intelligent, and compassionate. And most of all, you put the needs of others before yourself. So that means you are built for love. And you deserve someone who loves you back.

Caitlin Snow: Yeah, but the minute you got "The Book of Ralph" back from Cisco, you tried to give it away again. Don't you want to use it? Try to find someone special for yourself?
Ralph Dibny: Caitlin... look... "Book of Ralph"... works great for other people, but... never actually worked for me. I know I'm not... built for love... And that's okay.
Caitlin Snow: Ralph Dibny. You are kind, intelligent, and compassionate. And most of all, you put the needs of others before yourself. So that means you are built for love. And you deserve someone who loves you back.

Well, we got a Rag Doll, a Weather Witch, and, uh... hold up, is that crazy bee girl? Hey, girl! What's going on? What a throwback.

Ralph Dibny: All right, so, this is the original timeline with the original Cicada, David Hersch. This is the night of the Enlightenment, when Nora interfered with the satellite, giving us our Cicada, Orlin Dwyer. That's also the same night that Grace goes into a coma. This is where it gets complicated. At some point in the future, Grace wakes up, she becomes her own full-fledged Cicada. She goes bac in time, she kills her Uncle with his own dagger. What happens to all the metas that Dwyer killed? Do they get un-killed? What about all the meta that Grace killed in the future? What did she kill them with? And most importantly, what happens in the timeline where Grace never killed Dwyer. Something doesn't add up.
Barry Allen: You might be right. But right now, there won't be any future for any metas if we don't get rid of that dagger. Now. This is our last chance. We have to figure out how to find Grace. Or we lose everyone.

Iris West-Allen: Do you think we made the right decision leaving Nora out of this? I mean, the whole reason she came back was to fight Cicada in the first place.
Barry Allen: We're her parents, all right? It's our job to protect her from harm. The best way to do that is just to keep her far away from it.

Caitlin Snow: Here's what we know about the cryo-atomizer. Tannhauser originally developed it to combat land fires caused by droughts. So the cryo-atomizer can disperse cold air particles into the atmosphere that triggers rainfall. However, if Cicada can replace the cold particles with the cure prototypes she stole from Cisco...
Cisco Ramon: Which doesn't cure so much as it kills.
Caitlin Snow: ...she could infect the entire city.
Iris West-Allen: And every meta-human in it.

Ralph Dibny: I know you guys want me off this whole Thawne thing, but you've got to hear this.
Cisco Ramon: Ralph...
Ralph Dibny: No, you've got to look at this. You've got to hear this. So just... just give me a second, all right?

XS: Then once we find Cicada to entrap her, we give young Grace the choice to take the cure. And hopefully, when she's no longer a meta...
Killer Frost: That bitch will cease to exist.
XS: That way we can stop her without destroying the dagger, and Thawne never goes free.
The Flash: Now all you have to do is help Grace make the right choice.
XS: What do I say?
The Flash: Whatever's in your heart. She'll listen.
Cecile Horton: What a bunch of sentimental crap. You two sound like a friggin' Hallmark movie.
Killer Frost: I hear you, sister.
Joe West: I think we're close.

Iris West-Allen: Time language.
Barry Allen: Mm-hmm.
Iris West-Allen: No matter what changes with the timeline, that'll never change.
Barry Allen: Yeah. We'll always have this to remember her.

Caitlin Snow: How do you feel?
Cisco Ramon: Scared. But I'm hopeful. Before I forget, I left you something in the workshop. Just, you know, my way of saying thank you.
Caitlin Snow: For what?
Cisco Ramon: Being a great friend.

Cisco Ramon: Definitely some kind of wood fragment.
Iris West-Allen: And you think those will lead us to where Cicada's hiding?
Cisco Ramon: We can find out. We can cross-reference this, see what kind of wood it is, then see where we end up.

Barry Allen: It's a system-wide power surge.
Iris West-Allen: It's coming from the Time Vault.
Iris West-Allen: Are we under attack?
Barry Allen: I don't know. Whatever's going on started the moment we left.

Iris West-Allen: Dad, um, I meant to ask you, what did you do with those boxes that were in the back of the garage?
Cecile Horton: Oh, he finally threw them away. Thank you very much.
Iris West-Allen: Okay, I gotta make a call.
Caitlin Snow: Guys, I'm sorry. I actually have to sneak out, too. A friend of mine from med school needs my support. Thanks for having me; it was delicious.
Joe West: Bye, Caitlin.
Joe West: You notice ain't nobody help clean up?

Ralph Dibny: Guess everything's coming up frosty, huh?
Killer Frost: Yeah, I guess. Where do I start? How do you, you know, live a life?
Ralph Dibny: With a life coach, of course.
Ralph Dibny: So, first thing's first: the name "Killer", a little bit too much for some folks. Have you thought about changing it? My mom's middle name is Anne.

Cisco Ramon: Speaking of going out, Kamilla and I are doing shawarma Tuesday, so I'm gonna mosey. Of course, moseying is a lot harder these days post-Vibe showing up to a date in a S.T.A.R. Lab van, not a good look.
Cecile Horton: Mm, no. I'll give you a ride.
Cisco Ramon: And risk looking like my mom just dropped me off?
Cecile Horton: Ooh, even better, you can walk.
Cisco Ramon: Okay, I'm coming.

Joan Williams: Barry. You're with us. William Knox. I've discovered that poetry can stimulate collapsed neural pathways.
Barry Allen: Lady Gaga usually works for me.

Joan Williams: Your husband stared at me that same way when we first met.
Iris West-Allen: I'm sorry. You look just like Barry's mother.

Killer Frost: Did it work? I sound like Caity.
Cisco Ramon: You sound like a non-meta, thanks to Ray Palmer. As long as this nanite camouflage cocktail is active, your voice and eyes will allow you to blend in with any group of regular Joes, so you can, you know, live your life without scaring the crap out of the ever-loving crap out of people.
Killer Frost: And what about my hair?
Cisco Ramon: Trust me. You'll fit right in.

Barry Allen: Stop trying to hit me, and hit me. Or why don't you just admit what's hurting you?
Killer Frost: I don't want to die when I've just started living. Okay? I finally have the chance to live a life, and not this stupid Crisis is gonna take it all away?
Barry Allen: I know it's not fair.
Killer Frost: Do you know that Baskin-Robbins has 31 different flavors? I might die before I get to figure out which one is my favorite. Or what my favorite song, or have my first birthday party. 30 years of existing, and I've never had one. That really sucks.
Barry Allen: Frost. There's always going to be a crisis, or some meta-human threatening to take away the life that you love. Truth is, we're all living on borrowed time.
Killer Frost: So, what, does everyone feels this crappy all the time? That actually does kind of make me feel better.
Barry Allen: It's why you can't let the threat of losing tomorrow tomorrow keep you from making the most of today.
Killer Frost: I want to spend the rest of today making sure that Mitch Romero doesn't hurt anyone else.

Harrison 'Nash' Wells: So... It's you.
Iris West-Allen: What?
Harrison 'Nash' Wells: What's your name?
Iris West-Allen: Iris West-Allen.
Harrison 'Nash' Wells: Well, Iris...
Iris West-Allen: And don't you forget it.
Cisco Ramon: I had that.

Cisco Ramon: Harrison Wells. Welcome to Earth-1. My name is Cisco Ramon.
Harrison 'Nash' Wells: Why are you following me?
Cisco Ramon: Oh, great. Another angry one.

I'm never gonna leave you. Even when I'm gone.

Iris West-Allen: Sue is very lucky to have a master detective like you searching for her.
Ralph Dibny: Give me a break. It's just a missing person's case. It's not I'm looking to getting married.

Barry Allen: What are you talking about? What the hell are you doing?
Cisco Ramon: I'm saving your life. 'Cause someone has to do it.
Barry Allen: Saving Ramsey... Saving Ramsey's my call.
Cisco Ramon: And it's a bad call.
Barry Allen: But it's one I made. Sometimes, as a leader, you have to make tough calls in order to serve the greater good.
Cisco Ramon: You know, I made a tough call. And I made it for you.
Barry Allen: But I told you. You can't save me.
Cisco Ramon: I'm not buying that!
Barry Allen: Well, you have to. Sacrificing myself saves everything and everyone. I've seen it.
Cisco Ramon: And what does that give me to look forward to? Waking up to a world without the Flash? A light without my best friend?
Barry Allen: You get to live. You all get to live.
Cisco Ramon: Don't.
Barry Allen: Look, man, I... I've been dealing this for weeks. Wondering what's gonna happen when I'm gone, how everybody's gonna move on. That's why I wanted us, you and me together, to save Ramsey today.
Cisco Ramon: You wanted us to save a random person so I'd be okay with you dying?
Barry Allen: No. I wanted us to save one person's life so you could understand the tough calls... the sacrifices that a leader has to make. Because you're my pick. You the person I want to run S.T.A.R. Labs and this team when I'm gone.

Barry Allen: Please tell me you went home at some point.
Cisco Ramon: I knew I smelled SPF-90. How was it?
Iris West-Allen: Amazing. 15 beaches in 24 hours, one of the many perks of marrying a speedster.

Ralph Dibny: Hey, I thought you guys fathwoomed out of here.
Barry Allen: We just wanted to make sure you guys were okay holding down the fort while we were gone.
Cisco Ramon: We're good. Rest easy, lovebirds. Team Leader is my new middle name.
Ralph Dibny: What was it before?
Cisco Ramon: Baracus.
Iris West-Allen: As in Barracas, Argentina?
Cisco Ramon: No, as in Mr. T. My mom was a big "A-Team" fan.
Ralph Dibny: Wish mine was. Could've been Hannibal Dibny.
Cisco Ramon: Hannibal? Please. You're Murdock on your best day.

Caitlin Snow: You're talking about reversing nature.
Dr. Ramsey Rosso: Nature never meant for us to fly, and yet we've touched the stars. And not by being slaves to the shackles of the natural order, but by transcending them. Take a look at your own life, Cait. How many times have you had to say goodbye to people? How many more have you not even had the chance to do so? My mum should be here. Your father should be here. Your husband should be here. Join me, and this is the end of goodbyes. No one you love will ever die again.
Caitlin Snow: I've seen your version of life. It's a nightmare. But you can still be your mother's son. She had so much faith in you, and so do I. You just need to have faith in yourself.
Dr. Ramsey Rosso: Your words are madness.
Dr. Ramsey Rosso: Next time won't be a choice.

Sometimes the truth is the hardest lie to see through. When you can't put your faith in the truth, all you have left is yourself.

Name's Allen. Barry Allen.

Barry Allen: I'm not gonna give into you.
Dr. Ramsey Rosso: Barry, you misjudge me. I'm just here to enjoy with good friends and perhaps offer you a gift.
Barry Allen: What can you possibly offer me?
Iris West-Allen , Caitlin Snow , Cisco Ramon , Ralph Dibny , Joe West: Everything.

My name Is Iris West-Allen and I once met a young man, a superhero who I called the Streak. The world has come to know him as the Fastest Man Alive, the Scarlet Speedster, the Flash. But no matter what title you choose for him, he'll always be remembered as the protector of our amazing city and it's citizens, as a beacon of hope for us all, and as the man who sacrificed himself again and again so we could live. Today we say goodbye to him. Today we say goodbye to him, not because he was taken but because he gave himself willingly. And in the end, that's what makes him deserving of the greatest title of all. Hero.

Bloodwork: Any last words before your death?
The Flash: I just want to enjoy the time I have left.

Killer Frost: Hey, uh... where's the scary guy who tried to kill us all?
The Flash: He won't get far.

Bloodwork: Is that all you've got, Mr. Ramon? Too bad. My lifeblood is a gift. Are you ready to receive it? No. You have another purpose to serve. The reckoning is near. My army is almost ready to march on S.T.A.R. Labs.
Cisco Ramon: What the hell do want with S.T.A.R. Labs?
Bloodwork:
Cisco Ramon: The Particle Accelerator.
Bloodwork: The very tech you helped create will be the vessel carrying my glorious cure. Soon all of Central City will be granted eternal life, and I choose you, Mr. Ramon, to be my messenger. Go, tell your team the great S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator is ready to fulfill its true purpose. Salvation is nigh.
Cisco Ramon: An ass-whipping is nigh, pal... And you're gonna lose, Ramsey. You're gonna lose.
Bloodwork: Plucky right up to the end. I knew I picked the right guy.

Flash-90: Sorry, kid, but this has to happen.
The Flash: Barry, what are you doing?
Flash-90: I'm momentarily stealing your speed. You play the speedster game long enough, you learn some neat tricks.
Killer Frost: Wait, why are you doing this?
Flash-90: Novu said the Flash must die in Crisis. He never said which one.

Iris West-Allen: I didn't get a chance to introduce myself, Dr. Choi. I'm Iris West-Allen from Central City.
Ryan Choi: Are you a superhero, too?
Iris West-Allen: No, I'm just like you. Look, I know this is a lot to ask and you're right to be with your family when things go bad.
Ryan Choi: What about you? You clearly have someone in your life. Don't you want to die when the world ends?
Iris West-Allen: My husband is not like us. He goes out there as a superhero day after day and faces whatever he has to to keep his city safe.
Ryan Choi: That's really brave, Iris, but that's not me. See, I'm nothing like your husband.
Iris West-Allen: No, no, you're not. You're human, and we have a purpose, too. We remind superheroes what they're fighting for.
Ryan Choi: My wife, Amanda and I, just had a baby six months ago. Simone. I might not get to see her grow up.
Iris West-Allen: Don't you want to hold her knowing you had a hand in making the world safer?
Ryan Choi: I need to go tell my wife I'm gonna be late for dinner.

Black Lightning: Where am I?
Killer Frost: Who are you?
Black Lightning: Send me back to Freeland now!
Killer Frost: Calm down, Electric Guy.Black Lightning: The name is Black Lightning.

Cisco Ramon: Someone call for backup?
Ray Palmer: Cicso, thank goodness. I need another genius intellect, stat.
Cisco Ramon: That's why I'm here.
Cisco Ramon: And that is a super doppelganger, which is super weird.

Barry Allen: Look, I know you don't want me to run you there, but it's a 20-hour plane ride.
Barry Allen: That's too much.
John Diggle: What you got?

Iris West-Allen: Her. Dr. Komiyo Hoshi.
Cisco Ramon: Hoshi... She went missing 4 years ago. She's an astronomer out of Tokyo with the power to fuel starlight, but her meta-powers aren't precise enough to do the kind of damage you showed me in those photos.
Kamilla Hwang: What if she used the Photon rifle to focus them?
Cisco Ramon: Good thinking, maybe the reflector chip could condense her UV photon emissions.
Kamilla Hwang: The rifle is the weapon.
Cisco Ramon: No, she's the ammunition.
Allegra Garcia: So Black Hole turned her into some kind of evil light doctor.
Cisco Ramon: So we've got a brand new, more powerful, murder-happy Dr. Light on our hands. Another new meta surprise courtesy of Earth frakking Prime.

Cisco Ramon: Jitters just re-opened and was immediately attacked by terrorists. Why am I not surprised?
Killer Frost: I'll go bail out those latte-sippers.
Barry Allen: Guys, I got this.

If we also made a reservation for tonight, we could up our chances of having an emergency-free Valentine's Dinner.

Iris West-Allen: Surprise, babe.
Barry Allen: Yeah, wow. This is not a banana.
Iris West-Allen: I know Valentine's Day isn't for a couple days, but I thought why not? Let me surprise my hubby before some meta of the week strikes.

Kara and Lex Luthor? Man, this post-Crisis world gets harder to understand every day.

Iris West-Allen: There is someone else on the other side of that mirror, another me. How is that possible, Eva?
Eva McCulloch: A fractal variable caused by the mirror. A duplicate of you.
Iris West-Allen: You mean the mirror left a fake clone of me in the real world? We're getting out of here.
Eva McCulloch: I've tried. For six years, I've been in my own personal hell.
Iris West-Allen: Eva, I have to go home.
Eva McCulloch: I'm sorry you're stuck here, but... I thought I was gonna die here alone. At least now there's two of us.

The Flash: Hartley Rathaway. Since when are you a diamond thief?
Pied Piper: It's Pied Piper, Flash. You're really gonna ask me that after what you and your friends did to me?
The Flash: Uh, what did we do?
Allegra Garcia: Wow, Flash. My brother, that is epically cold. How do you not remember? It was really bad.
The Flash: Oh, great. Another Crisis change.
Pied Piper: Apparently, there is something else you didn't remember. The gauntlets are just my backup singers.
The Flash: Wait, what?
The Flash: Great. He can fly now.

Iris West-Allen: There's another reason why you don't want me to use this machine, isn't there?
Eva McCulloch: No, I-I-I... I-I better go lie down.
Iris West-Allen: Eva, w-what are you hiding?
Eva McCulloch: Nothing!
Iris West-Allen: Why don't I believe you?
Eva McCulloch: Trust me, we can't use it.
Iris West-Allen: Why can't we use it?
Eva McCulloch: Because of this!

Look, I hate to break it to you, but accidentally putting Barry's life in danger is kind of a rite of passage around here. We've all done it: Cisco, me, Ralph, even the janitor. He put too much wax on the floor.

Wally West: I've been looking for you, man. I thought maybe you'd be home.
Barry Allen: No. I'm not ready to tell Iris. I'm not ready to tell anyone. I found out what really happened to the Speed Force. It died because of what I did in Crisis. I took the Spectre's energy so I could enter the Speed Force. His energy started a meltdown, and now it's gone, Wally... For good because of what I did.
Wally West: You were trying to save the universe. Any hero would have made that call. I would've made that call.

Kamilla Hwang: Iris?
Iris West-Allen: Yeah, I'm not Iris.
Iris West-Allen: Sorry you had to find out this way.
Kamilla Hwang: Wait - wait, no...

Caitlin Snow: You're finally back.
Cisco Ramon: I am. Well, after a while, all the post-Crisis anomaly hunting starts to catch up with you - that, and I wanted to wash all the Atlantean fish smell off of these clothes.

Cisco Ramon: "Welcome home"? You guys shouldn't have.
Joe West: Shame.
Wally West: Well, it's good to see you, friend.
Cisco Ramon: Wally West? What? Where have you been? Welcome home - "Welcome home." I see. I am crashing *your* party.

Sunshine: Come out, come out, wherever you are.
Sunshine: No.
Barry Allen: Yep. You're helio-kinetic. So without the sunlight, you're just an ordinary thief. Limits suck, don't they?

Eva McCulloch: And no one saw you?
Iris West-Allen: CCPD was busy fighting Sunshine.
Kamilla Hwang: In and out and no one noticed.
Eva McCulloch: So my husband stopped looking for me, but... apparently still goes out looking for my toys. You did very well. As long as we stick to the plan...
Iris West-Allen , Kamilla Hwang: Success is assured.

Cecile Horton: What the hell just happened?
Cisco Ramon: Thawne just connected to his Speed Force. If that happens again, we lose Nash forever. And the Reverse-Flash lives again.

The Flash: You're not gonna make anyone suffer anymore, Merkel, no matter how much Black Hole's paying you.
Rag Doll: Pay? Don't care about money.
The Flash: If you're not trying to kill Joe for money, why are you doing this?
Rag Doll: Oh, release. Mother's dead. Heart attack. No one left to suffer now. Except myself. Thank you, Flash, for helping me suffer. Any second now, release comes with kaboom!

I trusted you, Barry. Now we have something else in common. We both lost our parents. I hope that was worth it.

Cisco Ramon: Will there be waffles?
Ralph Dibny: There better be waffles.

Barry Allen: Now you're gonna kill me?
Eva McCulloch: There's no need for that. You're wounded. You lost your speed. And your healing is not what it used to be. You're not much of a threat, are you? You just stay out of my way, Flash, and I'll stay out of yours. I have unfinished business to attend to. And a whole world to liberate.

Iris West-Allen: I think I've come up with a new idea to get us out of this place.
Eva McCulloch: Stop! What are you doing?
Iris West-Allen: Eva, think about it. This is the only mirror that you can control. So there's gotta be something different about it. And until we can figure out what that is, we are... we're just working blind. Move.
Eva McCulloch: So, to examine it, you want to smash it?
Iris West-Allen: Yeah. I mean, we both know that you can put it back together, so let's just take this thing down, dissect it piece by piece, and learn what its secrets are.
Eva McCulloch: Fine. You do what you wanna do.
Eva McCulloch: I'm gonna go to my lab, and work on a plan that would actually help us.
Iris West-Allen: Oh, my god.

Cisco Ramon: You scared us for a minute there.
Caitlin Snow: Yeah.
Ralph Dibny: Can you tell us what happened?
Caitlin Snow: I was home alone, and the wound from the light bullet was getting worse.
Cisco Ramon: I'm sure your run-in with Sunshine didn't help.
Caitlin Snow: Yeah, so I tried to ice heal it, and that's when the wound ruptured. It must have been my immune system's way of protecting me. Guys, I need help.
Ralph Dibny: You just tell us what you need. I mean, who do we know that can help with a... light-ice wound?
Caitlin Snow: There's only one person we can call. My mother.

How did Thawne manage to build a Speed Force machine on his own without a journal to guide him, but all the brain power in S.T.A.R. labs can't even get this thing to work. It's like we built a 12-ton paper weight.

The Flash: I didn't think you were coming.
Pied Piper: I didn't save you so we could chat.

Kamilla Hwang: You okay?
Iris West-Allen: I let Eva manipulate me all this time, and now the neural dissonance is getting worse. How did I let that happen? My skill as a reporter is being able to see the truth, but Eva proved to me that I can't trust my instincts or... myself.
Kamilla Hwang: You weren't the only one she tricked. Your duplicate tricked me, everyone. Even Barry. Don't beat yourself up for not being perfect. Of course Eva would want you to see your strength as a weakness. That's how she's kept you trapped. But if you want to escape, you have to trust yourself again. I do. So... where do we start?
Iris West-Allen: There is one other duplicate that Eva created: Chief Singh. We should find him. If we're gonna go home, we're all going home. Together.

Hartley Rathaway: Not much has changed. Ugh. S.T.A.R. Labs, still keeping mediocre engineers around, I see.
Cisco Ramon: Do we have to work with this douchebag?

The Flash: You're gonna let us go?
Eva McCulloch: Of course. I've achieved my goal for today.
The Flash: We'll never stop coming after you.
Eva McCulloch: You'll fail. This building, this company... it's all mine. And you and your little friends are trespassing, so... run along now, Barry, before I have to call the police.

Eva McCulloch: You and I are not enemies. We never have been.
The Flash: You just killed him in cold blood.
Eva McCulloch: Your wife set out to catch a bad man. She couldn't. But together, we could. We're on the same side.
The Flash: No.
Eva McCulloch: Just remember that.

Eleanor Waldorf: You are lucky I don't fire you this minute.
Jenny Humphrey: Oh, you are lucky that I don't just quit!

Scheming is classic Blair.
