Spencer: Do you know the reason we all admire her so much?
Quayle: You're all fanatics?
Spencer: Ask her. Ask her what happened to her other.

Do it. Go ahead. I would if I were you.

Howard Prime

Are you gonna miss it? Playing husband?


Howard Prime: Are you hurt?
Howard Alpha: Shot, actually.
Howard Prime: No shit?
Howard Alpha: Also imprisoned, interrogated, isolated, sleep deprived, starved, beaten. I was here a month.

Howard Alpha: I'm sorry. Who are you?
Naya: I'm Naya Temple. You must be the real Howard.

We all would like to be the better version of ourselves, I just -- I just don't know if it's possible.

Howard A

Howard A: I knew who you were.
Emily A: I don't understand. Why did you put up with it?
Howard A: I thought it was love, accepting you unconditionally. But now I think it was something more like cowardice. Like if I confronted you, I would lose you.
Emily A: And you didn't want to lose me?
Howard A: I didn't.
Emily A: I really fucked this up, haven't I?

Clare. Betraying her will never fill the hole she created within you.


Clare: Think about your parents. I bet there's not a single day that goes by that they don't regret giving you away.
Spencer: I don't have parents. I have Mira.

Spencer: This world doesn't fight fare. If we don't destroy them, they'll destroy us.
Clare: You're wrong. You know how I know you're wrong? Because I dream about her, my other. I keep seeing this little girl, one whose life I envied and hated, but I've been taught to believe that this existence of this other world is an aberration of nature. But what if this is nature's plan, and the real test isn't if we could eradicate this other side of ourselves -- what if it's about acceptance?

I just wanted to protect my wife.

Howard Alpha

This was always your plan. Not peace, vengeance.


Counterpart Season 2 Quotes

Management: Why do you suppose you're so good at catching spies?
Naya: Because I know what it's like to be an outsider, to have my nose pressed up against the glass. I see the world the way they see the world.

Management: Do you believe in God?
Naya: Yes.
Management: Why?
Naya: Are you asking why I believe in God? Because I'm fairly certain I don't have to answer that.
