EMT: Hold her down! Control said no survivors.

Agent Anderson (Liz May Brice): Target One’s eliminated. Two and Three have escaped but we’re in pursuit.
John Frobisher (Peter Capaldi): What went wrong?
Anderson: They got lucky. But they won’t get far.
Frobisher: We can’t have witnesses. Call me when you’ve got them. And make it quick.

Mr. Dekker (Ian Gelder): I’ve got the translations. Instructions. Specifications for something they want us to build. And we haven’t got much time to do it in.
Frobisher: And they can communicate like this. in this kind of detail? Why do the thing with the children?
Dekker: Because they can. And because they want to scare us.

Gwen: Who do you work for? {she points the gun at him} Who. Do. You. Work. For?
EMT: NHS.
Gwen: Who do you work for?! You tried to kill me. My friends, my friends could be dead. So don’t think I won’t use this.
EMT: The government. I’m working for the government. I just follow orders, that’s all.
Gwen: We’re on the same side. {he tries to get the gun and she shoots him} Why would the government want to destroy Torchwood?! Why!
EMT: I just do as I’m told. I’m just following orders, that’s all.

PC Andy (Tom Price) about Johnson: If she’s Anti-Terrorist, I would not mind being Uncle Terrorist.

Gwen: Whoa whoa whoa. What are you doing?
Rhys: Packing.
Gwen: Well you’re not going to have time to read. And they can trace us with that. {she tosses the phone}
Rhys: Well I don’t know! I’ve not gone into hiding before, have I.

Gwen: Where should we meet Ianto?
Rhys: Your phone could be bugged.
Gwen: Right. Remember… remember the last time we had ice cream together?
Rhys: No.
Gwen: I got to go.

Rhys: Wouldn’t it be better if we turn ourselves in? Tell somebody what happened?
Gwen: When I know what’s happened, I’ll tell someone. Until then we’re going underground.

Frobisher: As you know, Harkness is a difficult man to kill. Current theory suggests that his longevity is connected in some way to the Torchwood Hub. Which necessitated taking out the entire operation.
Prime Minister Brian Green (Nicholas Farrell): Well he can’t still be alive after that.
Frobisher: As I said, awaiting results.

Green: We’re building something and we don’t even know what it is.
Frobisher: Can I ask. Did the 456 contact any other country?
Green: Intel’s been listening. No chatter on the wires. Seems like it’s only Britain.
Frobisher: And how long can we keep it secret? Given the children’s last statement, “We are coming back.” That’s what everyone seems to be asking: when were they here before?

Frobisher: I just, um, wanted to say how grateful I am, sir.
Green: What for?
Frobisher: Well I know that I’m something of a middleman in these affairs, but I just wanted to thank you for trusting me with the responsibility.
Green: All I’ve done is put you on the front line, John. That’s what the front line’s for. First to fall.

Rhiannon Davies (Katy Wix): What’s he done? Why’s he bringing it to our door?
Johnny Davies (Rhodri Lewis): Hey hey. We’re the only family he’s got.

Rhys: Oh God, this is uncomfortable. How are you, love?
Gwen: My best friend’s belly had a bomb go off in it last night. Someone’s been trying to kill us ever since. I’m travelling at 70 miles an hour on top of potatoes and I think I’m going to be sick.
Rhys: Travel sick, is it?
Gwen: When have you known me to be travel sick?
Rhys: Well, when have you evrtravelled like this?
Gwen: Hm.
Rhys: On am empty stomach. What? What?
Gwen: You know some announcements that you rehearse in your head?
Rhys: Yeah.
Gwen: Yeah. And this wasn’t quite what I had in mind.
Rhys: What do you mean, announcements? {realizing} Oh God, no?
Gwen: Yes.
Rhys: Bloody hell, no!

Rhys: This changes everything.
Gwen: No. No, it doesn’t. We’re up the same bloody creek and we still need a paddle.
Rhys: Yeah, but three of us in a boat.

The Children: We are coming tomorrow. We are coming tomorrow.

Gwen: Where’s Frobisher?
Lois Habiba (Cush Jumbo): He’s not coming.
Gwen: Why not?
Lois: My God, this is probably the worst mistake of my life. I’ve read your files. Some of the stuff you’ve done, you’re like unsung national heroes.
Gwen: Listen, I don’t do autographs and I don’t want to be rude. But why am I talking to you and not your boss?
Lois: ‘Cause if he knew you were here you’d be dead. He gave the order to have Jack Harkness killed.
Gwen: You sure?
Lois: I’ve seen it with my own eyes.
Rhys: We really are in trouble.

Rhys: Listen, this is a lot to talk about. And we’re going to arouse suspicion. And we haven’t ordered.

Lois: There’s something big being built on the top floor of the MI5 building.
Gwen: Okay, what do you mean, “something”?
Lois: I don’t know. But it’s like they’re getting ready. And if you lot—Torchwood—if you’re the alien experts, and they really are coming tomorrow, why does Mr. Frobisher want you out of the way all the sudden?
Gwen: I’ve no idea but I’m going to find out.

Jack: Who are you? What’s all this about?
Anderson: Apparently you can’t die, so it would be foolish to tell you anything. But I will say this: if I can’t kill you, I can contain you.

Gwen to Lois: When this is all over, and you want a job? Come see me.

Jack: What the hell’s going on?
Gwen: Don’t know yet. But the latest from the kids is it’s happening tomorrow.
Jack: Just in time then.

Bridget: If we know the composition of that gas, can’t we work out what sort of creature would live inside it?
Dekker: Could do. If we had all the time in the world.
Frobisher: So they arrive. And then what?
Dekker: The whole room’s laid out according to 456 instructions. Something of an ambassadorial suite, I’d say. Or throne room. Who knows. Maybe a slaughterhouse.
Bridget: But if they arrive tomorrow then how? How do they arrive in side that?
Dekker: No idea.
