4. Sheldon: "Amy, there was a song I couldn't get out of my head. Eventually I realized the song was about you and like that earworm, I can't get you out of my heart. So what I'm trying to say is you're my heartworm. The metaphorical kind, not the poodle killing kind." Amy: "What?"

SHIELD -
1. Rosalind: “Good morning.” Coulson: “I thought I’d lost you.” Rosalind: “Nope I’m still right here.” Coulson: “I don’t remember...” Rosalind: “We overslept which is nice but now you need to get up.” Coulson: “How about we stay awhile instead?” Rosalind: “Nothing with make me happier but they need you Phil, more than ever.” Coulson: “Just one more minute.” Rosalind: “No. Now. Get Up!” (Nirat Anop)
2. Bobbi: "You were there. Did you see it? What's it like?" Simmons: "I did see it, but I can't really describe what it looked like. It's more how it felt. Which is old and pained, as if it once had great power but lost it. And the entire planet is a wasteland. How that came to be I can't really say. Not in any scientific terms, but my sense, and certainly Will's heartfelt belief, was that the creature is the one responsible. That it caused the desolation." (Nirat Anop)

Hunter: "This is how S.H.I.E.L.D. works. Make a plan. Plan turns to rubbish. Make a new plan. Oh just to be crystal clear, this is the part where the plan turns to rubbish." (Nirat Anop)

5. Ward: "You know, everyone had this place wrong. It isn't death. It's a new beginning. Malick was right, this was all meant to be. The fact that you followed me here. That we're in this together. That just confirms the fact that I am part of a grand plan. I see that now." Coulson: "I honestly have no idea what you're talking about." Ward: "You will." (Nirat Anop)
6. Coulson: "I'll be damned. Tatooine." (Bradley Adams)
