And up until a few weeks ago, I believed the fastest man could run a mile in four minutes. Barry: Yeah, I might be in the suit doing all the running... And no matter how fast you are, there are some things you can't outrun; some things always manage to catch up to you. Wherever I go, he goes, and where I go isn't always safe, Iris. Now, there's a part of me who isn't focused, who doesn't see Eddie as my partner but as your boyfriend. Barry: [voice over] Every kid dreams about being a superhero. But no kid thinks about what it's like to be a hero and not saving people. You still hurt, you still love, you still wish and hope and fear things, and you still need people to help you with all of it. Being alive means running; running from something; running to something or someone. [grabs his flamethrower and points it at Caitlin] You want me to show him who you really are? It is your destiny to lose to me, Flash, just as it was your mother's destiny to die that night. You and this Flash must be really close if you're willing to die for him, hmm?
Wells: Subject has made a great leap forward, causing me to revise my initial thesis. I thought his attachment to people was a distraction, now I realize the opposite is true. [nods over at Iris] That's not going to work out for you. So many people have been hurt because of me, and when I looked at you, all I saw was a potential victim of my hubris. It's gonna be that feeling of uselessness when you can't do anything. And the hardest thing you're going to have to face is not some monster out there with powers. I used to think that the further away I got from it the less it would hurt, but some days the pain is worse than the day that it happened. Leonard Snart: Once the armored car called 911 we had 182 seconds before any cop could be on the scene. When I was a child I saw my mother killed by something impossible. And one day, I'll find who killed my mother and get justice for my father. Watching over your city like a guardian angel, making a difference, saving people in a flash. To the outside world I am an ordinary forensic scientist, but secretly I use my speed to fight crime and find others like me. Because you can inspire people in a way that I never could.
