Menaker: That’s the thing about Mr. Voight. He never does anything he can get someone else to do for him.
Voight: [referring to the puzzle box] Beautiful, isn’t it?
Joey: What is it?
Voight: It’s a puzzle. The only one of its kind. Forgotten until now. And it’s almost finished. Keep going.
Joey: So if I solve it, do I get a prize?
Voight: I do.
Voight: I am a penitent of the great Leviathan. Grant me this audience. Grant me this boon.
Riley: [referring to her and Trevor] You guys just heard us f***ing?
Matt, Colin, Nora: Yes.
Matt: [referring to Trevor] I don’t like him.
Riley: You’re just intimidated because he’s a pretty boy.
Matt: What kind of guy hooks up with someone from a twelve step program? Honestly?
Riley: [to Matt] Don’t take away all my vices. Let me f*** a cute guy, for Christ’s sake.

Matt: Ri, I love you. I want you to have fun. I’m not out here trying to police your every life choice.
Riley: You just want to make sure that I can handle myself. Right? Message received. I won’t see him.
Riley: [referring to Matt] Here’s the thing. He’s not wrong. That’s the problem. He’s not wrong, and he means well, and that makes me want to f***ing swing on him.
Trevor: I’ll swing on him for you.
Riley: Whatever. I don’t need him to be proud of me or anything. It’d just be a little nice if he wasn’t ashamed.
Trevor: You might not be a good girl, Riley, but you want to be. You got a little Matt just kind of sitting on your shoulder. So, he may be worth listening to, you know. Maybe.
Colin: [reading from Byron] “The waves were dead, the tides were in their grave. And the winds were withered in the stagnant air and the clouds perished. Darkness had no need of aid from them. She was the Universe.”
Riley: Don’t ask me questions if you know I can’t answer them, Matt.

Matt: I love you.
Riley: You love having something to fix, so that you can feel like a big success in this s**tty apartment!
Matt: Okay. Okay. I see what you’re trying to do.
Riley: No, you don’t know a thing about what I’m trying to do. You know what? That’s okay. Neither do I.
Matt: I don’t know what’s going to happen to you, ever! You want to play games, you will lose, Riley. Pack your s**t. Get the f*** out of my house.
Riley: I thought you’d never ask!
The Gasp: [after Riley opens the puzzle box] That blade was meant for you.
Riley: Who’s there?
The Gasp: Come with us.
The Priest: If not you, bring us another.
Riley: [after Matt cuts his hand on the box and goes missing] He woke me up. His hand was bleeding. He went into the bathroom, and then he never came out.
Colin: Wait, you never saw him come out? But you just said that you were in and out of it, f***ing blitzed. So what did you miss? Huh? Because he wouldn’t just leave. That’s not him!

Riley: I’m not on anything right now. Why the f*** am I seeing s**t still?
Trevor: [referring to the puzzle box] How did you get it to change, like from the cube into that?
Riley: I didn’t. It changed on its own.
Trevor: Maybe it’s a bad time.
Menaker: Bad time? My lungs are rotting out. I’m f***ing dying in this place.
Menaker: [to Riley] You have no idea whose business you’ve stepped in. Roland Voight was monstrous and sadistic.
Menaker: I sorted out his mess of an estate. And that was the last thing I ever did for him. Not proud of the things I did. What you’re after is dangerous. It ended Voight’s life, and it will end yours too. Or worse.

Menaker: [referring to the puzzle box] Who opened this? This is not the first configuration. Who touched it?
Riley: My brother.
Menaker: And now he’s gone, isn’t he?
Menaker: So you’ve seen them. Roland used to see them too. People thought he was crazy. Angels, he called them. You’d think a devil would know a devil.
Menaker: I’m sorry for what I have done. Have mercy.
The Gasp: Save your breath for screaming.
Riley: First my brother, then Serena Manaker. The same exact s**t six years ago. Look, in the weeks leading up to Voight’s disappearance, there were others too.

Riley: [referring to Voight] They’re all gone. It’s happening again. I know that this guy has something to do with it, and I know that that thing does too. It opens up, and it cuts you. And then when it does, you… We have to go there.
Trevor: I’m tossing this thing. Alright? No one will know the difference. Okay?
Riley: The difference is, I need it to find Matt. Don’t you get that?
Riley: Is it really you?
Matt: Do you want it to be?
