Season 1

Elliot-Alderson season 1
1
I’m good at reading people. My secret, I look for the worst in them.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep1: eps1.0_hellofriend.mov
2
Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit. The world itself’s just one big hoax. Spamming each other with our running commentary of bull**** masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I’m not saying anything new, we all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy but because we wanna be sedated. Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards. F*** society.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep1: eps1.0_hellofriend.mov
3
How do we know if we’re in control? That we’re not just making the best of what comes at us, and that’s it. Trying to constantly pick between two options. Like your two paintings in the waiting room. Or Coke and Pepsi. McDonald’s or Burger King? Hyundai or Honda? It’s all part of the same blur, right? Just out of focus enough. It’s the illusion of choice. Half of us can’t even pick our own our cable, gas, electric. The water we drink, our health insurance. Even if we did, would it matter? You know, if our only option is Blue Cross or Blue Shield, what the f*** is the difference? In fact, aren’t they the same? No, man, our choices are prepaid for us, long time ago.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep2: eps1.1_ones-and-zer0es.mpeg
4
A bug is never just a mistake. It represents something bigger. An error of thinking. That makes you who you are.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep3: eps1.2_d3bug.mkv
5
This is the world we live in. People relying on each other’s mistakes to manipulate one another and use one another, even relate to one another. A warm, messy circle of humanity.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep3: eps1.2_d3bug.mkv
6
The bug forces the software to adapt, evolve into something new because of it. Work around it or work through it. No matter what, it changes. It becomes something new. The next version. The inevitable upgrade.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep3: eps1.2_d3bug.mkv
7
Most coders think debugging software is about fixing a mistake, but that’s bull****. Debugging’s actually all about finding the bug, about understanding why the bug was there to begin with, about knowing that its existence was no accident. It came to you to deliver a message, like an unconscious bubble floating to the surface, popping with a revelation you’ve secretly known all along.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep3: eps1.2_d3bug.mkv
8
The devil’s at his strongest while we’re looking the other way, like a program running in the background silently, while we’re busy doing other s***.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep4: eps1.3_da3m0ns.mp4
9
Daemons, they call them. They perform action without user interaction. Monitoring, logging, notifications. Primal urges, repressed memories, unconscious habits. They’re always there, always active. We can try to be right, we can try to be good. We can try to make a difference, but it’s all bull****. ‘Cause intentions are irrelevant. They don’t drive us. Daemons do.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep4: eps1.3_da3m0ns.mp4
10
Daemons. They don’t stop working. They’re always active. They seduce. They manipulate. They own us. And even though you’re with me, even though I created you, it makes no difference. We all must deal with them alone. The best we can hope for, the only silver lining in all of this is that when we break through, we find a few familiar faces waiting on the other side.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep4: eps1.3_da3m0ns.mp4
11
I’ve never found it hard to hack most people. If you listen to them, watch them, their vulnerabilities are like a neon sign screwed into their heads.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep5: eps1.4_3xpl0its.wmv
12
Every day, we change the world, but to change the world in a way that means anything, that takes more time than most people have. It never happens all at once. It’s slow. It’s methodical. It’s exhausting. We don’t all have the stomach for it.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep5: eps1.4_3xpl0its.wmv
13
Think about it, Bill. If you died, would anyone care? Would they really care? Yeah, maybe they’d cry for a day, but let’s be honest. No one would give a s***. They wouldn’t. The few people that would feel obligated to go to your funeral would probably be annoyed and leave as early as possible. That’s who you are. That’s what you are. You’re nothing to anyone, to everyone. Think about it, Bill, ’cause if you do, if you let yourself… You’ll know I’m telling you the truth. So instead of wasting any more of my time, I need you to go call someone that matters, because Bill, you don’t.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep5: eps1.4_3xpl0its.wmv
14
Life is so much easier when you’re numb.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep6: eps1.5_br4ve-trave1er.asf
15
When I was a kid I got into web design by ripping off sites I liked. All you had to do was view source on your browser and there it was. The code. You could copy paste it, modify it a little, put your name on it, and like that, it was your site. View source. What if we had that for people? Would people really wanna see?Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep7: eps1.6_v1ew-s0urce.flv
16
We’re all living in each other’s paranoia.Elliot Alderson, S1.Ep8: eps1.7_wh1ter0se.m4v
Mr.-Robot season 1
1
You think people out there are getting exactly what they deserve? No. They’re getting paid over or under, but someone in the chain always gets bamboozled.Mr. Robot, S1.Ep1: eps1.0_hellofriend.mov
2
You don’t take down a conglomerate by shooting them in the heart. That’s the thing about conglomerates, they don’t have hearts. You take them down limb by limb. And as they unravel, their illusion of control unravels.Mr. Robot, S1.Ep1: eps1.0_hellofriend.mov
3
The world is a dangerous place, Elliot, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.Mr. Robot, S1.Ep2: eps1.1_ones-and-zer0es.mpeg
4
Sure, there are grays, but when you come right down to it, at its core, beneath every choice, there’s either a one or a zero. You either do something or you don’t. You walk out that door, you’ve decided to do nothing, to say no, which means you do not come back. You leave, you are no longer a part of this. You become a zero. If you stay, if you want to change the world, you become a yes. You become a one. So, I’ll ask you again: are you a one or a zero?Mr. Robot, S1.Ep2: eps1.1_ones-and-zer0es.mpeg
5
People who get violent get that way because they can’t communicate.Mr. Robot, S1.Ep3: eps1.2_d3bug.mkv
6
True courage is about being honest with yourself. Especially when it’s difficult.Mr. Robot, S1.Ep6: eps1.5_br4ve-trave1er.asf
7
Is any of it real? I mean, look at this. Look at it! A world built on fantasy! Synthetic emotions in the form of pills, psychological warfare in the form of advertising, mind-altering chemicals in the form of food, brainwashing seminars in the form of media, controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven’t lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century. We turned it off, took out the batteries, snacked on a bag of GMOs while we tossed the remnants in the ever-expanding dumpster of the human condition. We live in branded houses trademarked by corporations built on bipolar numbers jumping up and down on digital displays, hypnotizing us into the biggest slumber mankind has ever seen. You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bull****, a kingdom you’ve lived in for far too long. So don’t tell me about not being real. I’m no less real than the f*****g beef patty in your Big Mac.Mr. Robot, S1.Ep10: eps1.9_zer0-day.avi
Tyrell-Wellick-season-1
1
Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank, but give a man a bank, and he can rob the world.Tyrell Wellick, S1.Ep2: eps1.1_ones-and-zer0es.mpeg
2
Power belongs to the people that take it. Nothing to do with their hard work, strong ambitions, or rightful qualifications, no. The actual will to take is often the only thing that’s necessary.Tyrell Wellick, S1.Ep2: eps1.1_ones-and-zer0es.mpeg
3
Two days ago I strangled a woman to death just with my hands. That’s a strange sensation. Something so tremendous done by something so simple. The first ten seconds were uncomfortable, a feeling  of limbo, but then your muscles tense, and she struggles and fights, but it almost disappears in the background along with everything else in the world. At that moment it’s just you and absolute power, nothing else. That moment stayed with me. I thought I’d feel guilty for being a murderer, but I don’t. I feel wonder.Tyrell Wellick, S1.Ep9: eps1.8_m1rr0r1ng.qt
Mobley-season-1
1
People are all just people, right? When it gets down to it, everyone’s the same. They love something. They want something. They fear something. Specifics help, but specifics don’t change the way that everyone is vulnerable. It just changes the way that we access those vulnerabilities.Mobley, S1.Ep5: eps1.4_3xpl0its.wmv
Fernando-Vera-season-1
1
People walk around, act like they know what hate means. No one does, until you hate yourself. I mean truly hate yourself. That’s power.Fernando Vera, S1.Ep2: eps1.1_ones-and-zer0es.mpeg
Whiterose-season-1
1
The concept of waiting bewilders me. There are always deadlines. There are always ticking clocks. That’s why you must manage your time.Whiterose, S1.Ep8: eps1.7_wh1ter0se.m4v
Terry-Colby-season-1
1
If you want to change things, perhaps you should try from within, because this is what happens from the outside.Terry Colby, S1.Ep9: eps1.8_m1rr0r1ng.qt

Season 2

How do I take off a mask when it stops being a mask, when it’s as much a part of me as I am?Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep1: eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc
2
We keep fighting. Like the world we unmasked, we will find our true selves again. Maybe after wiping away the thick, grimy film of Facebook friend requests and Vine stars we can all see the light of day.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep1: eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc
3
Is that what God does? He helps? Tell me, why didn’t God help my innocent friend who died for no reason while the guilty roam free? Okay, fine. Forget the one-offs. How about the countless wars declared in his name? Okay, fine. Let’s skip the random, meaningless murder for a second, shall we? How about the racist, sexist, phobia soup we’ve all been drowning in because of Him? And I’m not just talking about Jesus. I’m talking about all organized religion, exclusive groups created to manage control, a dealer getting people hooked on the drug of hope, his followers nothing but addicts who want their hit of bull**** to keep their dopamine of ignorance, addicts afraid to believe the truth, that there is no order, there’s no power, that all religions are just metastasizing mind worms meant to divide us so it’s easier to rule us by the charlatans that want to run us. All we are to them are paying fanboys of their poorly written sci-fi franchise. If I don’t listen to my imaginary friend, why the f*** should I listen to yours? People think their worship’s some key to happiness. That’s just how he owns you. Even I’m not crazy enough to believe that distortion of reality. So f*** God. He’s not a good enough scapegoat for me.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep3: eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd
4
Maybe it’s not about avoiding the crash. But it’s about setting a breakpoint to find the flaw in the code, fix it, and carry on until we hit the next flaw. The quest to keep going, to always fight for footing. Maybe we’re all just stumbling from the right questions to the wrong answers, or from the right answers to the wrong questions. It doesn’t matter where you go or where you come from, as long as you keep stumbling. Maybe that’s all it takes. Maybe that’s as good as it gets.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep3: eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd
5
The only way to patch a vulnerability is by exposing it first.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep4: eps2.2_init1.asec
6
Annihilation is always the answer. We destroy parts of ourselves every day. We Photoshop our warts away. We edit the parts we hate about ourselves, modify the parts we think people hate. We curate our identity, carve it, distill it. Krista’s wrong. Annihilation is all we are.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep4: eps2.2_init1.asec
7
The secret of the perfect hack? Make it infallible.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep5: eps2.3_logic_b0mb.hc
8
Everyone has their own if/then conditional programming, a situation where if certain conditions are met, then a logic bomb detonates. Everything blows up in your face.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep5: eps2.3_logic_b0mb.hc
9
Masters. We all have them. Every relationship’s a power struggle. Some of us need to be controlled. Once in a while, the best course of action is to just ride shotgun. Stare at the road ahead, and hope it leads somewhere you want to go.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep6: eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes
10
Control can sometimes be an illusion. But sometimes you need illusion to gain control. Fantasy is an easy way to give meaning to the world, to cloak our harsh reality with escapist comfort. After all, isn’t that why we surround ourselves with so many screens?  So we can avoid seeing? So we can avoid each other? So we can avoid truth?Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep7: eps2.5_h4ndshake.sme
11
It’s one thing to question your mind. It’s another to question your eyes and ears. But then again, isn’t it all the same, our senses just mediocre inputs for our brain? Sure, we rely on them, trust they accurately portray the real world around us, but what if the haunting truth is, they can’t? That what we perceive isn’t the real world at all but just our mind’s best guess? That all we really have is a garbled reality, a fuzzy picture we will never truly make out.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep12: eps2.9_pyth0n-pt2.p7z
12
It’s time to finally take back control. Real control.Elliot Alderson, S2.Ep12: eps2.9_pyth0n-pt2.p7z

Every business day when that market bell rings, we con people into believing in something, the American dream, family values. Could be freedom fries for all I care. It doesn’t matter as long as the con works and people buy and sell whatever it is we want them to.Phillip Price, S2.Ep2: eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc
2
I’m a mercenary. I don’t play fair. I play what I want. When you deal with a mercenary, then all decorum gets tossed out the window, so you go ahead with your cute threats and your watch beeps. Order will not protect you anymore, my friend. I will rain chaos, even if it hurts me, ’cause I would rather see you lose than win myself.Phillip Price, S2.Ep9: eps2.7_init_5.fve
3
Isn’t that what history is all about? Politically, economically, geographically, imaginary lines being drawn and redrawn, over and over again?Phillip Price, S2.Ep10: eps2.8_h1dden-pr0cess.axx
antara-nayar-season2
1
A guy walks up to a woman at a bar. He flirts with her. He makes small talk, but the woman insists she isn’t gonna go home with him. Guy says, “What if I offer you a million dollars to sleep with me?” The woman’s never had a million dollars in her life. She stops and considers the offer very seriously. The guy changes his mind, says, “What if I change my offer to a dollar instead?” Woman is aghast. “What kind of woman do you think I am?” Guy says, “We already figured that out. Now we’re just negotiating.”Antara Nayar, S2.Ep2: eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc
ray-season2
1
Control is about as real as a one-legged unicorn taking a leak at the end of a double rainbow.Ray, S2.Ep3: eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd
2
The whole thing is a fall. It can’t help but be. A perpetual state of grasping in the dark. It’s not about getting up. It’s about stumbling, stumbling in the right direction. It’s the only true way to move forward.Ray, S2.Ep3: eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd
darlene-season2
1
Trust me, in this day and age, it’s sicker not having panic attacks. Since when did pretending everything’s okay suddenly become the almighty norm?Darlene, S2.Ep4: eps2.2_init1.asec
2
I’m not special. It’s Elliot. He’s the one with the plan, the one they’re taking seriously. You know, I always thought it was crazy we got away with this. I thought there was something special about me that made it happen. But it wasn’t me, Mobley, Trenton, or Romero. It was him. It’s always been him.Darlene, S2.Ep10: eps2.8_h1dden-pr0cess.axx
3
Look. Babe. I know how this works. You get close to me, play the sympathy card, relate to me, we’re just two crazy, wacky Jersey girls. Take advantage that I did lose what probably was the love of my life. And you act like you care. But that’s just it, an act. Which is sick and twisted. I’d rather you arrest me and throw me into jail. But let’s get something straight. You will not get anything out of me. So why don’t you go read your manual and find the chapter on conniving c**ts that don’t give a f*** about you or your feelings and then get back to me with some real tactics? Otherwise, get me a lawyer. As far as I’m concerned, my only statement to you is that I saw my boyfriend go brainless last night at dinner. I ordered the breakfast combo, and he stole some of my bacon. If you want any other details, the answer is suck a d**k.Darlene, S2.Ep12: eps2.9_pyth0n-pt2.p7z
joanna-wellick-season2
1
Killing a man instantly robs him of explanation. He has no time to process his final moments. Now, even though he was paralyzed, his mind was still able to understand why his life was ending. We let him die with answers. Otherwise, we’re nothing but ruthless murderers.Joanna Wellick, S2.Ep5: eps2.3_logic_b0mb.hc
angela-moss-season2
1
That’s the trick about money. Banks care more about it than anything else.Angela Moss, S2.Ep7: eps2.5_h4ndshake.sme
2
You’re a plumber. Right, Steve? You’ve had, what, 60 years at life? That’s the best you can come up with? Literally cleaning s*** for a living? I’m 27, and I’ve got a six-figure salary at the biggest conglomerate in history, and I’m just getting started. That’s who I am.Angela Moss, S2.Ep8: eps2.6_succ3ss0r.p12
whiterose-season-2
1
I’ve always found doors fascinating inventions. They hold the entry to unlimited imagination. Before you open any door, a world filled with possibilities sits right behind it. And it isn’t until you open it they are realized. Such potential they bring to our minds.Whiterose, S2.Ep11: eps2.9_pyth0n-pt1.p7z
2
Fear. How easy a quicksand of time people let that become.Whiterose, S2.Ep11: eps2.9_pyth0n-pt1.p7z

3
A story could have a mediocre beginning and middle, and oftentimes it does, but always gotta have a wow ending. Otherwise, what’s the point?Irving, S3.Ep10: eps3.9_shutdown-r
They packaged a fight into product. Turned our dissent into intellectual property. Televising our revolution with commercial breaks. They backdoored into our minds and robbed our truth, refurbished the facts, then marked up the price. This is what they do. It's what they're good at. This is their greatest trick. Lobotomizing us into their virtual reality horror show. - Elliot Alderson (Mr. Robot Quotes)

2
What if instead of fighting back, we cave? Give away our privacy for security, exchange dignity for safety, trade in revolution for repression? What if we choose weakness over strength? They’ll even have us build our own prison. This is what they wanted all along. For us to buy in on our worst selves.Elliot Alderson, S3.Ep1: eps3.0_power-saver-mode.h
3
Getting information is one thing, but how it was created, where and by whom, can often be illuminating.Elliot Alderson, S3.Ep4: eps3.3_m3tadatapar2
4
Blend in. Look bored, broken. Get a blank office stare on my face. This is how they do it, isn’t it? How they’re able to watch the world fall apart around them? Because to them, this is normal. It’s all they know.Elliot Alderson, S3.Ep5: eps3.4_runtime-err0r.r00
5
Deletion. When you make that decision, there’s always that moment of hesitation. That annoying, “Are you sure?” dialogue box. And then you have to make a call. Yes or no.Elliot Alderson, S3.Ep8: eps3.7_dont-delete-me.ko
6
That’s the thing about deletion. It’s not always permanent.Elliot Alderson, S3.Ep8: eps3.7_dont-delete-me.ko

As much as there is a part of you in me, there is a part of me in you.Elliot Alderson (to Mr. Robot), S3.Ep10: eps3.9_shutdown-r
8
They won’t win. Because one good thing came out of all of this. They showed themselves, the top 1% of the 1%, the ones in control, the ones who play God without permission. And now I’m gonna take them down. All of them.Elliot Alderson, S3.Ep10: eps3.9_shutdown-r

Nothing creates profit quite like global conflict.Whiterose, S3.Ep7: eps3.6_fredrick+tanya.chk

Never appeal to a man’s better nature. He may not have one.Mr. Robot (quoting Robert A. Heinlein), S3.Ep4: eps3.3_m3tadatapar2
