"Just a talent I have for the way things work, how the parts should go."
"When I was a kid ... I used to wish some stranger would come and tell me my family wasn't really my family. They weren't bad people, they were just ... insignificant. And I wanted to be different. Special. I wanted to change. A new name, a new life. The watchmaker's son ... became a watchmaker. It is so futile. And I wanted to be ... important."
"My name is Sylar. Gabriel Sylar."
"You're broken....I can fix it."
"Well, I'm different now. I feel I've been given a chance to start over. A new life, new identity. New purpose."
"I came halfway around the world looking for proof and threw him out the door. No one returns my phone calls anymore. They all think I'm insane."
"I don't. These people are all out there waiting to be told that they are important. Waiting to unlock their true potential. I know it. I can feel them. We'll find them together. We are the future."
"That’s enough, Gabriel —"
"My name is Sylar!"
"What a shame. They're out there. I can feel them ... so innocent, so unaware of what's happening to them. We'll find them, Mohinder. All of them, together. The two of us. It's our destiny."
"That sound in your heart, what is it?"
"Give me that damn list! So I can... sink my teeth in..."
"I'm a natural progression of the species. Evolution is a part of nature, and nature kills. Simple, right?"
"I wasn't begging for my life. I was offering you yours. You are your father's son. So determined, you didn't even notice I stopped the IV. But don't worry, you might actually do some good before you die. Starting with that list."
"You're like me, aren't you? I'd like to see how that works."
"This is usually the part where people start screaming."
"I understood it before the killing, I had a reason - to take what others didn't deserve. It was natural selection."
"Mom you're not even listening to me!"
"I am listening..."
"No, you're making a tuna sandwich."
"What if I told you I can be special... important, but to do it I had to hurt a lot of people, should I?"
"You, you could never hurt anyone."
" There's a lot of things I can do that you don't know about. "
"I must stop you."
"Then do it. Do it! Kill me! You can't. You coward. Now I'm going to have to kill you."
"You were right, mom. I am meant to be special, just like you wanted. I can be anything... I can even be President..."
"Most people wouldn't do that."
"I'm not most people."
- - Sylar (Landslide)
"Please, What would I want with your brain?"
"What took you so long?"
"Haven't I killed you before?"
"Turns out you're the villain, Peter. I'm the hero."
"You? How are you gonna help? You going to make me some more eggs?!"
"I underestimated you. You really are extraordinary. Just like me. You were right. I am gonna get my abilities back. Starting with yours..."
"I know you don't understand me. But, I wanna tell you why I am helping you. It's that delicious power. You see, when I get my ability back, I'm gonna kill you. And your sister. And I'm gonna take it all. And, if I don't get my ability back, it's not a total loss - Maya's learning quickly; she's a shiny new toy, and she's all mine."
"Now look what you made me do."
- - Sylar (Powerless)
"It's all behind me now, like a long night after a bad taco."
"Eat your brain? ...Claire, that's disgusting."
"You drink decaf, right Noah?"
"This is new. People usually aren't relieved to see me."
- - Sylar (Viewpoints)
"I hate heroes."

- - Sylar (Our Father)
"Do you insure anyone named Gray?"
"We can't disclose client information"
"Well maybe I can just pick your brain?"
"Challenge? Fine, i like challenges."
"Okay, technically I'm a serial killer.""
"What did we ever do to you?"
"Nothing. Wrong place, wrong time. I could have been a flood or a tornado. There's really no difference, actually."
"He was gonna shoot you in the head, I mean I could have just let him."
"And I let you live, which is kind of a big deal for me!"
"You’re the most powerful dude on the planet; I mean, what could you possibly need?"
"Why are you doing this?"
"Because you are here and I need to express how I feel."
"If we do this, if we succeed, you'd be the only one left."
"Funny how that works."
"I am Sylar."
- - Sylar's message to himself ("I Am Sylar")
"I'll keep trying to kill you for the rest of my life."
"Everybody needs a hobby."
"Claire's going to be so mad at me."
