- Roman: (voiceover) September 17, 2014, the day we arrived. We fled a dying planet, our ship crash-landed here. For my kind, it was meant to be a day of liberation, refuge. But for everyone on Earth, it was an invasion. The humans left us no choice but to defend ourselves. I did as my father said; I ran as fast as my legs would carry me, not understanding what I was running from, less sure of what I was running to.
- Young Emery: (to Young Roman) You don't look like a monster.
- Gloria: (to the Atrian Seven) My name is Gloria. You don't know me, but I'm well acquainted with each of you.
- (Teri says something to Roman in Sondiv)
- Gloria: Yes, Teri, I have been laid recently. And English is the language of choice here at Marshall High.
- Emery: That was you in the shed, wasn't it? You knew this whole time. How?
- Roman: The moment I saw you at school, I had this bizarre craving for cold spaghetti.
- Emery: But I was sure you were dead. I saw them carry you away.
- Roman: I came close. One of my hearts actually stopped beating for a few minutes. Luckily, I have a backup. I never got to thank you for saving my life.
- Emery: I was 6. I hardly did anything.
- Roman: You were kind when everyone else was cruel. That's something.
- Roman: You know, it's funny. All these years, my dad has taught me about this vaunted thing called humanity. Something that, by definition, we could never possess. But after spending just a few days amongst your kind, this concept of humanity doesn't seem so clear to me.
- Emery: No. There are a lot of good people out there.
- Roman: Yeah? Well, I've only met one.
