"You have no idea who the hell I am or where I’ve come from and I am not about to tell you my whole life story. All I need to be to you and everyone on this dome is a fixed point. The last man standing. I do not need your sympathy or adoration, all I need is your compliance and your fighting skills. And if I can’t get that, then you can go back to the wall that I found you crawling on. Do I make myself clear?"
"The truth is that I would’ve never figured out the missing piece that made it work. I’m just not that kind of person… Love is why we fight… That was the breakthrough."
