"You should kiss the ground you walk on if you were born in this country— take it from an old man who once had to wear the Star of David on his shirt. There’s a safety to living in such a diverse place. It’s much more difficult to brainwash a population that is composed of so many different nationalities and so many different viewpoints."
"My parents were immigrants from Vietnam. They’d been through a war, and they didn’t want their child to go through the same hardships they went through, so they tried to control my life as much as possible. For them, control was love. But I had to move away from it."
"I want to be a captain in the ESU— it’s New York’s equivalent of a Swat Team. You know how a lot of kids grow up watching cartoons, and dreaming of being super heroes so that they can save people? Well, I never grew out of that." "So what’s your super power?" "I’m good at making contingency plans. Like when Batman made a contingency plan in case any member of the Justice League went rogue." "So what’s been your greatest contingency plan so far?" "I didn’t get into the school of my choice, so I’m in community college now."
