Heroes 3.02 "The Butterfly Effect" [watched on nbc.com: 2008-10-04]

Original Airdate: 09/22/08
Available Until: 10/28/08

Sandra's conversation with Claire makes more explicit the rape echoes.

Claire: "He's not coming back."
Sandra: "How do you know that?"
Claire: "Because he got what he came for."

Claire: "I heal, but I always feel everything."
Claire: "That pain... I'm always so grateful for. Because it's the only time I know I'm still human."
     This feels touch overdramatic to me -- 'cause I feel like Claire's still largely been able to maintain a normal life (and when she hasn't, it's been because of her dad's job and/or because of her being "special" generally not her specific power), but maybe I'm just conveniently forgetting some of her teenage angst from previous seasons. And admittedly she does have alienation issues what the whole "special" thing plus being adopted. And I am really intrigued by the fact that she can now no longer feel pain -- kind of creepy (though surely it will be useful), but how Sylar's messing in her brain make that did it happen? (And what does Sylar do exactly with people's brains to extract their powers?)

Angela to future!Peter: "You never were as smart as you thought you were. I see a few more years on this planet hasn't changed that."

I love Angela's "She [Claire] listened to you [when Peter told her not to come to Odessa] and so she was somewhere she wasn't supposed to be -- and had a pretty bad day because of it."

Ugh, Mohinder shagging Maya. They barely know each other.

Hiro: "At these prices, they don't ask a lot of questions."
speedster's name is Daphne Milbrook

Tracy Strauss & Gov. Malden in Washington, D.C.
former stripper... K Street ice queen
[The reporter looks familiar. Following link from HeroesWiki to IMDb, maybe I recognize him from Models Inc.?]

future!Peter: "What are you doing?"
Claire: "What does it look like? Trying to get hit by a train."
     LOVE [though my immediate thought when she stood in front of the train was to wince for the driver]

Claire: "Yeah, I can heal, but what kind of lame power is that? I'm still just a victim."

Gerald Dickinson's untimely death

Tracy: "Wait, do you think that you know me?"
Nathan: "The word 'biblically' comes to mind."

[Also: "Speaking of sin..."]

Tracy leaves and Linderman's there and Tracy totally doesn't see him.

"First place, hundred yard dash, 12th grade" [medal in Daphne's apartmenr]

Nathan [re: future!Peter's revelation that he's the one who shot Nathan]: "I'm not sure how I'm supposed to respond to this."

Nathan: "Why are you telling me this?"
future!Peter: "I need your forgiveness."

Nathan: "If you're from the future, then... what do I do next?"
     me: He's changed the future, so he doesn't know!

future!Peter: "Now you're on the path to being the brother I always looked up to. You're gonna make the right choices."

Claire: "Where're you going?"
future!Peter: "To set things right."

K Street Ice Queen, indeed. And this indicates that she really isn't brainwashed!Niki/Jessica, since this is a power we haven't seen either of them manifest before.

Elle: "I-- we caught Sylar."
Angela: "Good for you. Your little outburst also shut down the grid -- Letting out a dozen inmates who are just as bad or worse. And Noah Bennett is gone, too."

Elle: "I have worked for this Company my entire life. What am I supposed to do now?"
Angela: "I suppose you'll have to get yourself another life."

Ando: "It sounds dangerous. Does Batman put Robin in danger when he sets a trap for Catwoman?"
Hiro: "Sometimes. To teach him a lesson."
Ando: "Stop punishing me for something I haven't done yet."

What is that that Mohinder pulls out of his arm? A tooth? A scale?

voice: "Hello."
Matt: "Oh god, I'm going insane."
     LOL [I love the turtle.]

Hai, Sprint product placement.

African guy: "It's not right that you're here. Not right at all. Tells me that the future is not as I have painted it."

Noah: "Are you all right?"
Claire: "No. But I'm better now."

Claire to Noah: "You're not staying, are you?"

Claire to Noah: "I was willing to shoot Peter, with your gun, when you wouldn't do it."
Noah to Claire: "I'm doing this, so you don't have to."

Meredith is creepy in that moment.

Sylar: "My name is Sylar. And you are not my mother."
Angela: "But I am, dear, I am."
