- Kara Danvers: The day your father killed those six people was like for me the day my planet exploded. The course of our lives changed in that single moment. You are not going to turn into your father. Because the day your world was destroyed, you didn't give into rage and hate like your father, like my aunt. We both lost our worlds and now we're trying to give back because of it.
- Winslow Schott, Sr.: Do you know that even with all the amazing toys I've built, you're the best thing I ever made. You're just like me.

- Alex Danvers: Wearing these is just as painful being punched by a Kryptonian.
- Cat Grant: Now, I need a lawyer and this is a place of work, not the bullpen of TMZ.
- Winslow Schott, Sr.: Why didn't you visit me? I just wanted to know that you were okay.
- Winn Schott: I was not okay. I watched my dad get dragged off to prison when I was eleven for murder. How okay could I be after that, Dad?
- Alex Danvers: You could feel like that all the time, you know. Free, untethered. True to who you really are.
- Hank Henshaw: The world needs Hank Henshaw more than it needs J'onn J'onzz.
- Hank Henshaw: J'onn J'onzz looks like a monster. I will never be tolerated on Earth. The more time I spend as Hank Henshaw, the less I have to face what I've lost.
- Alex Danvers: Here's to the Danvers sisters. We should come with a warning.
