Hughie Campbell: You know, I managed to go my whole life without seeing someone die horribly, and now I'm up to about a half dozen, so I think I'm good.
Homelander: [after learning about Becca] Why didn't you tell me?
Jonah Vogelbaum: To protect you. That's always job one at Vought, isn't it? Protect our most profitable asset?
Homelander: So why are you telling me now?
Jonah Vogelbaum: You don't understand. The thing about cross-breeding dogs, you get the right genes, you can get a perfect creation. But it doesn't matter how perfect they are. It's not enough. When I raise subjects without their mothers, they become violent. Aggressive. Downright hateful. You should have been raised in a home with a family who loved you. Not in a cold lab with doctors.
Homelander: And yet I turned out great.
Jonah Vogelbaum: When I think what it's done to you, and what you can now do to everyone else... I'm sorry.
Homelander: I don't want your fucking apology.
Jonah Vogelbaum: All this is my fault.
Homelander: [in a shaky voice] What do you want? What? What do you want, forgiveness? Now? After you raised me like a fucking lab rat? No. Too little, too late.
Jonah Vogelbaum: I don't want anything from you, John. I'm just an old man thinking about his mistakes.
Homelander: I'm the world's greatest superhero.
Jonah Vogelbaum: You're my greatest failure.
A-Train: All right, where is it?
Hughie Campbell: You know... this shit must be pretty good if it's worth running through a human being for.
A-Train: Oh my God, that was an accident, man. Where the fuck is the V?
Hughie Campbell: That accident had a name.
A-Train: And what about Popclaw? She had a name, too! Charlotte! The only good thing in my life is gone now. What is this, man? I kill your girlfriend and you kill mine?
Hughie Campbell: [confused] I didn't kill your girlfriend.
A-Train: You used her! You put her in danger and then you threw her out like she was fucking garbage! How does this not all start with you, Hughie? The only difference between you and me is that I made a mistake. The shit that you did was on purpose! So who's worse?
