  • "You are going to like him a lot. And when he smiles, you know what happens, right? The whole world smiles with him."
  • "All I can tell you is it's very clearly stated in that scene from last week, that the differences are Coulson leans more toward where Fury comes from. I have to discuss my feelings and ideas with my team. Everybody sitting at that table has the same amount of say-so to what is going to happen. That's the difference. You never saw a team around Fury and you never saw a team around Coulson. You saw the council that dominated Fury."
  • "It's very difficult for Bobbie. Bobbi loves Coulson, but she understands that what I'm doing needs to be done. She finds herself torn, just like Mac. Mac loves Coulson. They appreciate what they've been able to accomplish under him, but that was during the time of Fury. We have to take care of the public. And what are we taking care of the public from? Is Skye a threat or isn't she?"
  • "You won't believe it when it happens. What is going to happen is unpredictable. You're going to say, 'I love this show even more. Thanks a lot.' "
