Jemma Simmons : Daddy told me to put my troubles away in a little box so they wouldn't keep me up at night. Bad feelings - anger, fear, pain - I would just put them inside the little box, and they would stay in there. Nice and neat and crushed.
Leo Fitz : You need therapy. You have some deep, deep, pent-up issues.
Jemma Simmons : It's been a rough year.
Leo Fitz : Listen, uh...
[Takes both Jemma's hands and exhales slowly]
Leo Fitz : I've imagined this since I was in prison and every day since, and I wanted to do it right, but now we're stuck in another prison, and I don't know if we'll ever be able to get out of it...
Jemma Simmons : Fitz.
Leo Fitz : No, hold on. Hold on. Just, just... Just let me say this. I've realized the universe can't stop us. Because we survived the bottom of the Atlantic, we've crossed the galaxy more than once just to be together. So, a love like that is stronger than any curse. You and I, we are uns...
Jemma Simmons : We're unstoppable together.
Leo Fitz : Yeah, which is why I can't live another day without you. So, I'm asking you, heart in hand, Jemma Simmons, will you marry me?
Jemma Simmons : Absolutely.
Leo Fitz : [Young Jemma is hiding something behind her back] What is that? What are you hiding? Give it!
Young Jemma Simmons : No! It's our escape plan.
Leo Fitz : Give it! Now!
[She reluctantly hands him a beaker containing a yellow liquid]
Leo Fitz : What is it?
Young Jemma Simmons : Mononitrotoluene.
Leo Fitz : MNT? As in, a precursor to TNT?
Leo Fitz : Oh, I'm sorry that I was childish. It's just last time I asked you about the future, you turned into a 7-year-old and you hid in your bed.
Jemma Simmons : Fitz, we're obviously made for each other.
Leo Fitz : Uh-huh.
Jemma Simmons : And I'm sorry I can't give you back the time you missed, but I can give you me, now and forever.
[She hands him his wedding ring]
Leo Fitz : The whole universe couldn't keep me from you, Jemma Simmons. I am the luckiest man on any planet.
Jemma Simmons : [Fitz and Simmons are observing one of Jemma's memories as Daisy hands Simmons a wedding ring] No. No, I don't want you to see this part. I wanted to tell you the right way.
Daisy 'Skye' Johnson : I thought you'd want his ring.
Leo Fitz : What? Jemma, did you and I? Had I... Had I made that proposal to you before?
Jemma Simmons : I'm sorry.
Leo Fitz : I missed my own wedding.
Jemma Simmons : No, you just haven't had yours yet.
Leo Fitz : Well, I mean, I don't really need your help. I can solve it by myself. Just, in lab, you seemed like a good sounding board.
Jemma Simmons : Sounding board?
Leo Fitz : Yeah. Just means to bounce ideas off.
Jemma Simmons : So, I'm good at reflecting your ideas back at you. Like a wall. Like a thick wall.
Leo Fitz : Oh. No.
Jemma Simmons : Look, the powers that be didn't believe an algae bio-fuel hydrogen cell could power a quinjet so...
Phil Coulson : Well, they do now. And the powers that be have also recommended...
Leo Fitz : I told you. We're getting transferred to one of the poles.
Jemma Simmons : [whispering] Shut up.
Phil Coulson : Have also recommended you for my team.
Leo Fitz : The f-field team?
Jemma Simmons : This is an honor. Thank you for this opportunity.
Leo Fitz : Yeah, we would love the chance to discuss it and think about it more, I think, probably, alone.
Leo Fitz : We're the same, Jemma. You just like to repress your bad thoughts and pretend it's not happening. Your ego likes to pretend you're Jane Goodall, saving helpless little creatures like me.
Jemma Simmons : I do not!
Leo Fitz : When, in fact, if it was you in the Framework, the place would look like Night of the Living Dead.
