Mike Peterson: You said if we worked hard, if we did right, we’d have a place. You said it was enough to be a man but there’s better then man! There’s gods… and the rest of us? What are we? They’re giants… we’re what they step on.
Phil Coulson: I know. I’ve seen giants, up close, and that privilege cost me, nearly everything. But the good ones, the real deal? They’re not heroes because of what they have that we don’t, it’s what they do with it. You’re right, Mike, it matters who you are.
Mike Peterson: I could, you know? Be a hero.
Phil Coulson: I’m counting on it.

(I’m not sure what I think about this show. It doesn’t quite have the magic yet. The actors aren’t really friends yet and you can tell, but I did like this scene.)
