Memorable Quotes
  • Gwen: They can't do this! I'm a British citizen on British soil!
    Rhys: Yeah? Well, you've been too busy watching aliens. The fact is, the Americans have been getting away with this sort of stuff for years.
  • Gwen: (To Jack) How's that cut on your arm?
    Jack: I'll survive. I'm mortal, not dying. Well, technically, I am dying, but slowly.
  • Jack: Rhys, are you defending me!?
  • Jack: They spent a lot of money on us. Cleared out the whole plane for the prisoners. All on the taxpayers' dollar. Not bad, eh?
    Gwen: Every time you turn up, it always goes wrong.
  • Esther: Who can predict this? It's never happened before. Oh my God! Rex is coming back!
    Charlotte: Well, some things we can predict...
  • Gwen: What took you so long? I have to nearly explode before you show up!?
    Jack: Did you miss me?
    Gwen: Yes. I... I started to think it'd be like some kind of fairytale. I'd be an old woman and you'd just turn up out of the blue. Visit my granddaughter. I'd be ancient, and you'd be exactly the same. Where did you go, Jack?
    Jack: A long way away.
    Gwen: And did it help?
  • Jack: The amazing thing about the miracle is not that no one's dying, it's not that the human race has become immortal. It's that it happened to everyone at the same time. Don't you see? It was instantaneous. And that's a morphic event on a scale that I have never seen before, so whatever's happening to this planet, it is massive!
  • Oswald: I am free on the most beautiful technicality. When the world is stretched to a breaking point, who knows when it's all gonna snap back?
  • Jilly: (To Oswald) I thought you were very good.
    Oswald: I'm sorry?
    Jilly: Jilly Kitzinger, Mr Danes. I'm something of a talent spotter. That was the most amazing peformance.
  • Jilly: There's a reason churches are empty. People don't want to hear about heaven. They'd rather hear from a man who has gazed into hell itself, and that's you. And frankly, I think if the devil himself were to walk this earth, he'd need representation.
    Oswald: If the devil himself walked this earth, he'd surely be working in PR.
  • Gwen: What sort of getaway car is this!? I thought you Americans all had these big SUVs. This is rubbish!
  • Esther: What the hell is going on!?
    Gwen: Welcome to Torchwood.
