Quote1 Not to point any fingers, but as you can see, the world went into the toilet the minute you and the big salad disappeared. I'd say you've got some explaining to do. Quote2
--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 This is what happens because you didn't do your job. You didn't protect her like you're supposed to. Watch and learn, Buddy-Boy... Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You're quite alone. I'm... well, I'm just like everything else around here. Just like you, really. Just another dream becoming a nightmare. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Of course, think one happy little human thought and Blythe shall appear, a harbinger of nothing good, I'll tell you that much. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 See, right now you're afraid. You see the blood and that little bit of goop on my shoulder that you're terrified is a bit of brain. It is by the way. Not human, but still. More than that, you're wondering why you can't pick up that phone right now. That's probably the bit that's got your spine tingling more than anything. Because that's the scary thought, isn't it? You see wonders every day...men in tights shoothing through the skies, caught up in the sun... ...you see that and you understand, deep down, that the sun casts shadows, and that if the bright's so bright, you sure as hell don't want to see what lives in the dark. You can tell you're on the edge of one right now, can't you? And you've got this sense that if you step in, you'll never come back. you'll be alone with the dark things from here until the end of time. But then again, you think, maybe it's not that you can't pick up that phone. Maybe it's that you don't want to. Maybe it's that a handsome bloke dressed sharp as a tack walked into your shop, and there's nothing scary happening here at all. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Remember, lads and lassies, fairy tales weren't fun stories. There were warnings... Quote2

Quote1 The best con is the one that ends with the most parties satisfied ... and at least one party well and truly bollocksed. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Life is power, power leaves a trace...an echo. My best friend died years ago, but the echo remains. But you can't kill an echo. That second death, it's impossible. It breaks all the laws of what I know about the supernatural. But that's the damn trouble with the supernatural, there's plenty you don't know. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 But a dapper gentleman like me's got a responsibility or two. It's actually a bit easier to pay rent legitimately than it is to magically rewrite the landlord's brain to think it's already paid. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 The Green's getting choked out and kids are kicking it, how's that any different from any Tuesday? Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 You cheat the system, and it tries to compensate. Nobody really understands how or why, but it does. Magic is costly. You take what you didn't earn, but you pay for it. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I get tormented while you all get a pep talk, yeah? Typical. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 There are two of me in this place. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Just remember John... None of them are real. They're only an alternate possibility. And all you have to do to escape this nightmare is to find the other possible John Constantine... Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 First, you never get anything for nothing. Every spell you cast. Every little cheat... It costs you. I don't know how we'll pay for the wards that mask our shelter here. Or the sigil that will send us across to my universe... but I promise you we will. We'll lose something, yeah? And it will be something we'll miss. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 He destroyed one universe and he'll have this one too, unless you can con him, unless you can pull one over on a god. Don't think. Don't listen to them screaming. Take the power from the horrible sacrifice and use it to fuel... One. Last. Trick. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm no hero. I'm no wonder and I never could be. But I'll shoulder it. I'm not done. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Quiet you. You're nothing but a fetch. And bigger guns than you will be stopping by as soon as this cord goes. If it goes. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 So, what'll it be, mate? Stick around here and argue about some damned box, or come with me and save the day? Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 It's so convenient to blame it all on some sneering, arrogant Satan -- sitting on a fiery throne, plotting to corrupt our souls. But if there is a devil -- he's just another projection of our sins. It's no wonder the Crime Syndicate won. Hell, their victory was assured before they ever set foot in our universe. This world was made for them. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 How the hell do we stop a creature that was born inside our own hearts? Answer: we don't. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Look, Zee, I'll admit it. I'm only doing this to get my hands on all the goodies in that room. I mean, we're talking about what could be the rarest collection of magical artifacts ever assembled under one roof. But I need your help. That lot in there knows better than to trust me. But they will trust you. If you come, they'll follow. Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 All right, so we're in the hands of a misanthropic vegetable and a Greek demigod with an unlimited power-up she thinks she can control. Why doesn't this make me feel even a little bit better? Quote2

--John Constantine (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I wasn't far away. I felt someone performing a work up here, something big. I wanted to have a look. If I'd known it would've ended up with me getting half-strangled by an insane tree god, I would've left well enough alone. Quote2
