Supergirl : It's amazing, an executive order allowing aliens on Earth to come out of the shadows and live as full citizens. She's making history.
J'onn J'onzz : Not in my book, I think she's making a big mistake.
Supergirl : Now, how can you of all people say that?
J'onn J'onzz : Because it's been my hard experience that humans and aliens don't mix.
Supergirl : What about you and me?
J'onn J'onzz : What about us? We can look like them, we blend in, a lot of aliens can't. And people in this world don't have much tolerance for others who look different. I say that as an alien and as someone who's worn the face of a black man for 15 years.
Winn Schott : I've never heard of Daxam.
J'onn J'onzz : It's a sister world to Krypton. Both capable of sustaining life, both orbiting the same sun.
Alex Danvers : You've never mentioned it before.
Supergirl : Hundreds of years ago, Krypton and Daxam fought a bloody war to a stalemate. Thousands of lives were lost on both sides because of a pointless war Daxam started.
Winn Schott : What were they fighting about?
Supergirl : Krypton was a democracy. A world of explorers, philsophers, scientists, and Daxam, was a monarchy. With kings and queens who ruled a population of hoodlums. We had a saying on Krypton for Daxamites, "May tex kolar Daxam."
Alex Danvers : And that means...
Supergirl : Nothing I can repeat in English.
Supergirl : [surprised] I'm... meeting the President?
Alex Danvers : Unless you're too nervous to do so.
Supergirl : Nervous?
Supergirl : No. Me? I'm not... No, I'm not nervous. No, it's... Nervous? Yeah, yes, yeah, I'm really nervous. I'm nervous! It's the President.
J'onn J'onzz : You'll be representing this entire organization. I expect you'll be professional.
Supergirl : [nods calmly] Yes.
J'onn J'onzz : And for the record, she's the one who's lucky to meet you.
Supergirl : Thanks.
[big smile, fidgets with her hair]
Supergirl : Should I get a blowout?
J'onn J'onzz : Oh, dear God.
[leaves in a huff]
Supergirl : [to Alex] What?
President Olivia Marsdin : I can think of no better time than the present to extend our hand in friendship.
J'onn J'onzz : Even if that hand might get bitten off?
President Olivia Marsdin : One has to have hope.
J'onn J'onzz : What if it's false hope?
President Olivia Marsdin : It's hope, J'onn. How can it be false?
Supergirl : Did you hear that? That was like a legit quote. People are going to quote her.
[the other two look at her incredulously]
Supergirl : Okay, well, I have to go. I'm conducting my very first interview as a reporter. Just... call me if she says anything else cool, okay?
[goes off enthusiastically]
Alex Danvers : What do you think?
J'onn J'onzz : I think hope isn't gonna catch our would-be assassin.
