Eleanor puts Janet in her crosshairs to save Michael from eternal suffering.


What are you talking about? It is so easy to live with a lie. I once pretended to have a terminal illness to meet Scott Wolf at a Sunglass Hut. Victimless crime.

Tahani: Michael, you mustn't blame yourself.
Michael: I'm not. I blame you.

Chidi: Look, Janet has learned and grown. She's essentially living a life. We can't kill her.
Eleanor: Not with that attitude, we can't. Listen, man. I'm dead, you're dead. We all died, and now we're killing her. Pay it forward.
Chidi: No, that's not what that means at all, Eleanor.

Fun fact... The first Janet had a click wheel.

Eleanor: We're doing one small murder-y thing for a bigger, better reason. The ends justify the means.
Chidi: Do you know who said that?
Eleanor: Was it someone nice and great, like Oprah?
Chidi: It was Machiavelli... a very non-Oprah-like figure. And what happens after we kill her? We'll have to lie to everyone about what we did. And lying is always wrong.

Why do bad things always happen to mediocre people who are lying about their identities?

Tahani: By the way, uh, what's your favorite color for the tablecloths?
Michael: Well, it's not perceptible by human eyes. It's called pleurigloss.
Tahani: Could you describe it?
Michael: It's the color of... when a soldier comes home from war and sees his dog for the first time.
Tahani: How about blue?

Chidi: There's an old Chinese proverb... "Lies are like tigers. They are bad."
Eleanor: That's it?
Chidi: I guess it's more poetic in Mandarin.

Ha! How do you like them ethics? I just ethics'd you in the face, Chidi!

You cannot kill Janet. Killing is one of the most famous moral no-nos.
