Maggie: "Are you scared?"
Parker: "No way, once I’m human I’ll have you to protect me. With you in my life, I know my darkness can’t take over."

Niko: "Oh, your sisters are witches too! How did I not think of that? Sorry, sorry. Just mind blown all over again."

Niko: "Who taught you how to pick a lock?"
