Jack: 1965, I gave them twelve children.
Gwen: You just handed them over and hoped for the best.

Alice Carter (Lucy Cohu): I can only assume that you’re holding me here as insurance against my father. But let me warn you: if you’ve angered him, then God help you.
Agent Anderson (Liz May Brice): This from the woman who spent her life running away from him.
Alice: And why do you think I did that? A man who can’t die has got nothing to fear. So you watch it and you keep watching.

Gwen: It was a protection racket. You must have known they’d be back.
Jack: I knew it was a possiblity.
Gwen: But you still gave them the payoff.
Jack: We had no choice.
Clement McDonald (Paul Cople): Why us?
Jack: You wouldn’t be missed.
Clem: I can see that.

Clem: Why was I left behind? What’s wrong with me?
Gwen: We know they only want prepubescent kids. Maybe it’s got something to do with that.
Rhys: Saved by your hormones.

John Frobisher (Peter Capaldi): Before we even discuss your… your request, we need to know exactly what you intend to do with the children.
The 456: Somebody is watching. Some remnant.
Clem: It knows I’m here. It knows!

Frobisher: The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is watching through this camera here, and he needs to know what would happen to our children if we were to hand them over to you.
The 456: It is off the record?
Frobisher: Yes.
The 456: Come in.
Frobisher: In there?
The 456: With your camera. Come in.

The 456: You have one day to deliver ten percent of the children of this world.
Frobisher: And if we refuse?
The 456: We will wipe out your entire species.

Ianto: This must have been eating away at you.
Jack: Yeah? So tell me, what should I have done?
Ianto: Stood up to them. I’ve only just scraped the surface, haven’t I?
Jack: I have lived a long time. I have done a lot of things.
