Stargirl Season 1 Episode 3: "Icicle" Quotes
Courtney: We have to find the rest of the Injustice Society. They’ve probably assumed new identities in Blue Valley like Brainwave did.
Pat: OK, weren’t you even a little scared of Brainwave? I mean, we both could have been killed.
Courtney: But we weren’t, and as crazy and insane as it was, it was the first time since we moved to Blue Valley that I felt like I was in the right place, like I finally know who I really am. Starman’s daughter, Stargirl.
Pat: Court, even if there are other members of the ISA here, we need to proceed carefully, lay low, make a plan.
Courtney: I have a three-point plan: find them, surprise them, kick their asses. We’re Stargirl and STRIPE.
Pat: Being a superhero is not being one most of the time. I need to find out if Brainwave was alone or not, and I need you to go to school and just act like a normal teenager.
Courtney: That’s boring.
Pat: That’s safe.
It’s Nebraska, so twerking still packs a punch.Joey
Icicle: William, you stumbled into your powers. You killed your master before his lessons were complete, and it shows. That wand of yours, it’s capable of show much more, but instead of thinking big, you just continue to think small. Even now, you’re still performing the same old tired show; you’ve just changed one stage for another. You spend your days making promises to people, but much like every politician, you don’t keep them. And the same way you didn’t keep your promise to me.
The Wizard: Jordan…
Icicle: You seem to think that power comes from other people’s perception of you – from recognition or applause – but that’s not true power. No, William, true power doesn’t need to be seen.
Courtney: I have to say, slut-shaming is really damaging. Not to mention, it sets women back like 50 years.
Cindy: OK, well nobody cares what you think new girl.
Pat: Doctor Mid-Nite’s not coming back. None of them are, Court. Icicle and the Injustice Society killed them all. The truth is you and I don’t stand a chance against them.
Courtney: What if we had help? I’m the new Starman, so why couldn’t there be a new Hourman or a new Doctor Mid-Nite?
Pat: No, no one can take their place.
Courtney: That’s what you said about Starman, but then the staff picked me.
Pat: Court, these guys, I mean, they were the best in the world.
Courtney: Did they start out like that?
Pat: No, but still, with years of experience, they couldn’t defeat the Injustice Society. Do you understand that?
Courtney: This stuff shouldn’t be sitting here, collecting dust. It should be in the hands of possible heroes.
Pat: Hey, will you just listen to me for once? Everything in this room is dangerous, all right? This life is. A kid died today, a child. That’s why we can’t go on.
Courtney: A kid died today, and that’s exactly why we have to Pat. This is our destiny, Pat.
Pat: You know, that’s exactly what Starman said to me the night he died. Come on, we’re leaving, and until I say so, no more Stargirl and STRIPE. Let’s go.
Let’s go do some recruiting.Courtney
