Topher + Claire - Season 1
But why did you decide it was so important for me to hate you? I think that’s strange
It’s ordinary. You’re ordinary. Maybe you got bottle-fed, maybe you got dumped. Doesn’t matter. At some point, you decided real people weren’t worth it. You pushed them away, alienated everyone in your life so you could surround yourself with the fakes. The copies. It made you feel like you had some control.
Claire: I’m compiling a report.
Topher: I’m making a paperclip Eiffel Tower.
Claire: The report is conclusive. In every case, including Echo’s, we’ve seen improvement in muscular response, cellular cohesion, in stamina. All of the Actives who have been sent on pro bonos, on totally altruistic engagements, are physically improving.
Topher: Wow. Emoticon!
Claire: Have you cross-checked their cognitive response?
Topher: It’s not my job to improve them, Doc. I have to keep them right where they are. You of all people should know what happens when one of them…
Claire: This is different. This is about their experience of the world.

And every one of them will get carved up, and her throat cut until I get bored. Now get in the chair!
