  • Scott McCall: She's not going to come back now. We've just invaded her home. Our scent's going to be everywhere.


  • Stiles Stilinsky: Horrible things could have happened. Ripping, tearing, shredding things.




  • Lydia Martin: You don't need the instructions. When was the last time you ever used instructions, am I right? You don't need them because you are too smart to waste your time with them, okay?. You can figure it out. Stiles. You're the one who always figures it out. So you can do it. Figure. It. Out.
