I wanna be the guy that saves people. Not the one that kills them.


T.C.: Remember when I touched her hair?
Gardner: I do remember that. It was kinda creepy; she thought so too.
T.C.: Well, when I touched her hair, I wasn’t trying to be romantic. I love a woman who can…
Jefferson: Get on with it, son.
T.C.: Well, I’ve seen the chip and figured it was bad, so I deactivated it. You’re welcome.

Gravedigger: By the way you’re standing, you’re not all there. Biotics … lots of them. Not enough nervous system for me to push. Not enough sense to run. Clearly, you’re what they call a “millennial.”
Khalil: You talk too much.

Brandon: Is your name Jace?
Dr. Jace: It is! What can I do for you?
Brandon: You can die, b****!
[Brandon uses his power to shake the earth]
Gardner: Stop! Brandon, stop! Stop!
[Gardner knocks him out]
Dr. Jace: Who the hell is that?!

Grace: Your fight is my fight, babe.
Anissa: That’s very nice of you to say, but this is very dangerous. People might die and I don’t want that to be you.
Grace: It won’t be me. I’m going.

Gambi: So, when do we leave?
Jefferson: Actually, I thought you would just monitor things from here.
Gambi: You’re joking right? You don’t know Markovia. I’ve had business there. Believe me, you’re going to want me there.
Jefferson: What business?
[Gambi speaks Markovian]
Gambi: I have many stories, my friend. Most of which I’d want to forget.
Jefferson: Pack a bag.

Lynn: Yeah, well, my mistake for you having compassion.
Dr. Jace: I don’t foresee that being a problem. Actually, a prefer you on the glimmer. That obsessive need for answers; it’s not unlike how I see the world.
Lynn: I am nothing like you!
Dr. Jace: Honestly, you may be the only person I’ve ever met as smart as me. I know I’m not … easy … to work with, but I am trying to help you.

Khalil: Jenn, we … we can’t be together. There is a monster inside of me.
Jennifer: Khalil…
Khalil: I’m literally poison.
[Khalil leaves]

Lady Eve: Well, well, well. I thought I saw you when I was in Resurrection, but I assumed I was dreaming. Now you’re back on top in Freeland.
Lala: I like this little hustle that you’ve got going here.
Lady Eve: Let me guess, you want a piece?
Lala: Nah, I’m taking the whole thing. As of right now, you work for me.
Lady Eve: Ain’t gonna happen.
Lala: I know where Lazarus’ creepy a** stay. If I smoke both of y’all, there ain’t no coming back for you. Be careful writing checks with your mouth that you’re a** can’t cash.
Lady Eve: Honey, you’d be surprised at what this a** can do. Now I’d appreciate it if you’d leave and take the 40 hitters you have waiting outside to leave with you.

Grace: How could you not like puzzles?
Anissa: I’m just saying, even as a kid, puzzles completely puzzled me.
Grace: Haha, funny pun.

Lynn: If this meta-booster works, I can temporarily augment normal cells transferred to a particular metahuman profile.
Sergeant Grayle: That’s unbelievable! Everyone can have powers.
Lynn: Temporarily. If it works, I can sneak Tobias out, but I have to test it out on myself to be certain.
Sergeant Grayle: No. You’re too important. What if something goes wrong? I’ll do it.

Jefferson: So, you feel like this is our fault?
Jennifer: No, I don’t. But, they’re growing everyday and it’s painful. I love you and Mom, but you made me feel like some sort of freak who had to be locked up all the time. And Odell, he made me feel special. I know this sounds crazy, but he set me free in ways I never could’ve imaged. He took me to space, Dad. I’ve been to space!

Black Lightning Quotes

Lynn: You've been on the streets fighting The 100 for years. Let someone else do it. The girls need a father.
Jefferson: Baby, I promise. No more.

Black Lightning was the savior who kept our streets and our schools safe. He was hope personified. But he was also Jefferson Pierce, my father.
