|Daisy "Skye" Johnson|
|Affiliation||Rising Tide (formerly)|
|aka||Mary Sue Poots (former name)|
|Family||Calvin Zabo (father)|
|Portrayed by||Chloe Bennet|
Skye, (once known as Mary Sue Poots) or Daisy Johnson (b. 2 July 1988), is a hacktivist in her early twenties with Rising Tide who finds herself reluctantly recruited by the military organization S.H.I.E.L.D.. She was Agent Ward's trainee (now May's) and is Coulson's protégée.
It is revealed that Skye is an Inhuman on her mother's side. She accidentally went through the process of Terrigenesis, when she tried to stop Raina from using the Diviner. She has since developed the seismic abilities usually resulting in earthquakes.
Skye was discovered by a S.H.I.E.L.D. team in the Hunan province of China, and was herself an 0-8-4. The entire village and nearly the whole S.H.I.E.L.D. team got killed protecting her. She grew up at the St. Agnes Orphanage and in different foster homes who never kept her around for long, saying that she "wasn't a good fit". When she was nine she stayed with a family, called the Brodys, that Skye particularly wanted to like her, but they soon sent her back to the orphanage. It is revealed in "Seeds" that the S.H.I.E.L.D. protocol covering her placement at the orphanage mandated her constant reassignment.
Skye became obsessed with finding out the truth about her parents, and eventually she ran away. At some point later in her life she joined the Rising Tide, a computer activist (Or as Skye would say, "hacktivist") group. Skye and the Rising Tide shared certain beliefs about the freedom and accessibility of information. It was through the Rising Tide, that Skye bonded and became involved with master hacker Miles Lydon.
Skye spent two years living out of her van and using her skills to reveal classified data to the public while searching for information about her parents. However, in all of her searching, the only evidence she was able to find about them was a document with all of the pertinent data redacted by S.H.I.E.L.D. It was then that she came on to the idea to infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D.
When Skye witnessed Mike Peterson's display of superpowers during an accident which would kill a normal human being, she advised him to run, because she knew that S.H.I.E.L.D. would try to make him disappear. However, after the meeting with Peterson and warning him about the "men in dark suits" who were after him, she was caught by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Phil Coulson and Grant Ward in her van and taken to a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. base to interrogate her for the name of the hooded hero. She mentioned something called Centipede, but she refused to name the hero. Coulson then threatened her with a newly developed truth serum, but much to Skye's surprise, injected the serum into Agent Ward. Coulson then left Ward alone with Skye, allowing her to inquiry Ward about S.H.I.E.L.D.
While Skye didn't get anything top secret out of Agent Ward, she began to trust S.H.I.E.L.D, at which Coulson was glad as he was more interested in making her a part of the team than punishing her for the trouble she has caused. As Peterson's condition begun to worsen due to his exposure to Extremis, he kidnapped Skye, and her van, and forced her to save him and his son from the "scary men in dark suits". He made her drive to Union Station and requested her to delete any and all of his presence so he could effectively disappear and keep himself and his son safe from the powers behind Centipede. However, Skye managed to trigger a security breach on purpose which gave Coulson the coordinates of her position, allowing him and Ward to find her.
As Peterson attempted to run away with Skye and his son, a fight broke out between Peterson, Coulson's team and an assassin sent by the doctor who ran the centipede program to kill Peterson. Coulson's team managed to rescue Skye in time, as the confrontation between Coulson and Peterson ended with Peterson being shot by Ward with the antidote to neutralize the effects of Extremis. Later, after Skye and Coulson dropped Ace off with his Aunt Mindy, they headed back to the airfield in Lola, Coulson's hovercraft vintage red car. As Coulson drove, Agent Ward called a "0-8-4", to which Coulson asked Skye if she would join the S.H.I.E.L.D. She accepted the offer, and the two headed off.
In the episode 0-8-4 beginning Skye is seen emptying her van as the agents prepare for takeoff. Ward is talking with Coulson and May that she is not qualified to be a S.H.I.E.L.D agent. Coulson counters, saying that Skye will be an excellent consultant precisely because she doesn't think like an agent, despite Agent May's argument that the girl is not cleared for combat. Simmons and Fitz greet Skye and then give her a tour of the plane before Ward gives her an emergency procedures pamphlet.
The team then travels to an unpaved airfield in Peru, to an Incan archaeological site in Llactapata. Skye offers to warn nearby residents, but Coulson instructs her not to publicize the discovery in order to keep the investigation "quiet and contained."
When a hack from Miles Lydon endangered the life of "Registered Gifted" man Chan Ho Yin, Coulson's team sought to bring him into custody. Tipped off by Skye, Miles evaded capture and met up with Skye at his Austin, Texas apartment. Coulson, fearing that Skye might turn, tasked agent Melinda May to follow her. She confronted Skye and Lydon at his apartment and took them into custody.
While in custody, Skye tried to convince her team that Lydon was a good man who only believed in freedom of information. However, when agent Ward provided evidence that Lydon sold the information about Chan to mysterious sellers for one million dollars, she realized that he was not the man she thought he was.
Skye helped Ward extract Coulson and May when the operation to rescue Chan went bad. Afterward, Coulson gave Skye an ultimatum-- come clean with him, or be left behind. Skye decided to tell Coulson the truth about her quest for her parents and agreed to the stipulation of wearing a monitoring bracelet, one that keeps her from operating electronic equipment, in return for being allowed to stay with S.H.I.E.L.D.
When Coulson was taken away by Centipede, Skye was hit hard. She was involved in the capture of Vanchat, by hacking the elevator and bringing it up to the top floor, where several SHIELD agents stood, with Hand. Once back on the Bus, Hand wanted to kick Skye off, with Ward rejecting, but May agreed with Hand. She then went to Lloyd Rathman's house, an associate with Vanchat and Centipede. She posed as May to get Lloyd to co-operate and go into his bank account. She found out Centipede bought an estate in the desert. She notified Ward, May, Fitz, and Simmons. She then realized that May got her off the plane to make sure that no SHIELD agents looked over what she wanted to do. Ward, May, Skye, Fitz, Simmons divided with the rest of SHIELD to go to the secret Centipede facility in the desert. May and Skye rescued Coulson from the facility and arrested Raina, to presumably the Fridge. Once Coulson came back, Coulson finally took off her tracking bracelet with 'Disengage Bracelet'
In the search for Ian Quinn, Skye was responsible for tracking a large purchase Quinn made from a company called Cybertek. She found that the package was being transported by train and heavily armed, and the team decided to go undercover to board the train. Skye was paired with Fitz, and the two were responsible for communications. They posed as a young couple on a tour of Europe, Skye stealing the conductor's keys. She and Fitz set up comms in an unused room and start discussing the package on board. Skye wonders if it could be an 0-8-4, but Fitz says no, since they know the origin of the package is Cybertek. Skye then asks if an 0-8-4 could be a human. With this question, Skye reveals her hope that there might be another alien out there on Earth like her. She might not be alone. Fitz responds by telling her that it is possible, but he'd hate to meet the guy. One of the thugs from Cybertek bursts into the room and the two fight him off, but he detonates a toxin grenade just as Simmons runs in. Simmons is paralyzed along with the thug, and Skye and Fitz leave the train to track down Cybertek and Ian Quinn after they see the thugs handing over the package. It leads them to a large villa and Skye decides to sneak in. She reaches the basement and sees Mike Peterson lying in a hyperbaric chamber, but is caught by Quinn. He takes Mike out of the chamber, fitting him with a prosthetic leg. Skye attempts to reason with Mike, but he doesn't listen, leaving to complete his orders given by the Clairvoyant. Quinn shoots Skye in the stomach, embraces her as she's about to fall forward, then shoots her again. He lowers her to the ground slowly, then leaves her to die, saying "I have my orders too". Skye tries to call for help but is unsuccessful due to the tremendous loss of blood. Coulson finds her near death and the team places her in the hyperbaric chamber. A tense moment passes, and Skye breathes a single breath, indicating that she is alive. It is still unknown whether she will survive and return to full health, as the episode ends there.
Because of the damage Skye suffered from Quinn, the SHIELD doctors did everything that they could, but they could only keep her on life support. Coulson gives Fitz and Simmons access to the information regarding his revival and with Skye's condition getting worse, the two discovered a drug called GH325 that healed Coulson and could do the same thing for Skye. As Coulson, Agents Garrett, Ward and Fitz located the serum, Skye's condition gets worse, causing everyone aboard the Bus to rush to her aid. Ward and Fitz make it back to the Bus with the drug, but Coulson rushes in tells them not to give it to her. Simmons, however, already did and while she worsened for a moment, she soon stabilized. Skye quickly made a rapid recovery, but she was confined to her bed while Simmons performed tests to find out the drugs effects on her. When Lady Sif appeared on Earth and Lorelei had taken control of Ward, Coulson tasked Skye to find them. She did locate them, but they were long gone. When the bus was taken over, Skye and Simmons were locked in by Fitz, but they were released by Coulson. Skye managed to open the hatch in the interrogation room to get Sif back inside. Once Lorelei was recaptured and returned to Asgard, Coulson told her privately about the truth about the Serum: it was derived from an alien corpse, which shocked her. Coulson told her not to reveal the serum origins until he got some answers, unaware that May was listening in the whole time.
S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Skye.Edit
Skye was getting fed up with Simmons constantly drawing her blood and both Fitz and Simmons explain the drug's potential, but Skye unsuccessfully tries to dissuade them given it's origins. Skye is soon summoned to meet with Coulson, Agents Hand, Blake, Sitwell, Garrett and Triplett to make a plan to stop the Clairvoyant. Given the Clairvoyant supposed psychic abilities, Skye devised a way to divided into teams of two, one agent that knows the coordinates of the target and the other with the information on the target. Receiving praise from Garrett, Skye admits she doesn't have clearance, but Coulson shocks her by making her a fully-fledged level 1 S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Skye is congratulated by her team and while talking to Garrett, she thanks him for saving her life. Garrett soon says Ward has changed not just because of the team, but because of Skye. Coulson soon tasks her to go through the psych profiles of the targets to see if she can find a weakness in them. After realizing Agent Blake shot Deathlok with traceable rounds, Skye located him at horse track, but was sidelined due to her recent injury. She located Peterson through one of Fitz's drones, but she discovered that Deathlok didn't just have new weapons and a robotic leg, but he has grafted cybernetics within his body. Skye provided overwatch as multiple SHIELD agents tried and failed to stop him. The agents did find the Clairvoyant in the basement of the track and he admitted Skye has something they wanted and will kill her to get it, prompting Ward to kill him in cold blood. Skye scolded Ward for what he did, but he tried to defend his actions by reminding her what he has caused over time and he did to protect her and the team. However, Coulson confides in Skye that the man Ward killed could have been a decoy and Skye realized that the person they were talking to had personal knowledge on Coulson and Ward, leading to the conclusion that the real Clairvoyant is a member of SHIELD. Fitz soon told Skye that May has an unauthorized encrypted phone on the plane and warned Coulson of this. Both Coulson and Skye confront her over this, but May was unwilling to give an answer, all the while someone else had taken control of the Bus.
After finally getting May to confess that she was watching over Coulson on Fury's order, and that the phone line was a direct link to Fury, Coulson and Skye forced May to call Fury to prove her story to them. May reluctantly calls Fury but only for them to learn that Fury had been killed. Shocked they had to now figure out who was controlling the Bus and where they were being taking.
As Victoria Hand directed the Bus to the Hub, the team intercepted an encrypted message that revealed HYDRA had infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D.Having been exposed, the HYDRA operatives began assaulting various S.H.I.E.L.D. outposts and picking off non-HYDRA loyalists. Agent Hand, believing Phil Coulson and his team to be HYDRA sleeper agents, brought them to the Hub for incarceration.
Upon arriving at the Hub and believing Hand to be the Clairvoyant, Skye encrypted a hard drive so that Hand couldn't access vital information that the team had collected over their various missions. Then the group split up in order to evade capture, with Skye and Grant Ward holding off various agents while the rest of the team attempted to rescue Jemma Simmons, who had been working at the Hub during the pursuit of the Clairvoyant. During their time together, Skye and Ward admitted their attractions to each other but Skye chose not to pursue any relationship.
Skye was later present when the HYDRA sleeper agents at the Hub were rounded up, and displayed shock at the revelation of Agent John Garrett being the Clairvoyant.
In the aftermath of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Civil War, Phil Coulson was left in charge of the Hub and Skye gave him Intel. When Colonel Glenn Talbot insisted on sending peacekeepers there, Skye was assigned to collecting the team's badges and erasing their identities, so that Coulson's Team could escape persecution. Eventually, they found Providence.
While there, Skye learned from Agent Eric Koenig that the Fridge was raided by HYDRA, and, fearing for Grant Ward who was sent to the Fridge to imprison John Garrett, Skye gave Ward the location of Providence. As half the team went to Portland to capture Blackout, Skye and Koenig discussed using NSA satellites to find the escapees. They brought Ward in their discussion, not knowing that he was a HYDRA sleeper agent and helped free those escapees. Ward had come to Providence to retrieve the pass codes to the encrypted hard drive Skye handed him earlier. To keep his identity secret, Ward killed Koenig; however, Skye found his body in a closet. Realizing "Ward is HYDRA," Skye sought Ward's motive for being there so she boarded the Bus with him to learn he wanted her codes.
Skye tricked Ward into taking her to Ruthie's Skillet in Los Angeles, claiming that the code was location-based. When she tried to escape him, she was captured by Deathlok. She confronted Ward on his betrayal and he told her that his feelings for her were real. When Deathlok used a Heart Stopper on Ward to solicit her cooperation, Skye acquiesced and revealed that the codes were altitude-based, causing the Bus to take off. Fortunately, Coulson came to her rescue and they used Lola to escape.
Skye was later able to access the computers in the headquarters to put a trojan program for Garrett as her teammates went on to battle the Centipede Soldiers and Kaminsky. Coulson's team escaped as the building collapsed, burying their opponents.
Garrett was found at the Cybertek Manufacturing Facility in New Mexico and, on the Jump Jet, Coulson gave instructions about the battle at Cybertek.
Skye entered the Cybertek facility and went into the handlers' control room, threatening that she had a bomb. She let Kyle Zeller know that she was in charge and called Garrett to let him know that Coulson was coming for him. Garrett bragged about ending Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons to her in response.
Ultimately, Skye found Mrs. Zeller for Kyle, freeing him from the incentive program that HYDRA was using to ensure cooperation and then she found Ace Peterson, who was being held hostage to assure Deathlok's cooperation. With his son free, Deathlok killed Garrett. Skye approached Deathlok, asking him to join Coulson's Team, but he declined.
With Skye and the rest of the team now helping Coulson rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. from the ground up, they were now recruiting trusted Agents who lost their positions due to HYDRA's exposure.
Skye was also given the assignment of translating the Words of Creation written by John Garrett on the Bus. She used many avenues, including her contacts with Rising Tide, but after a month, she had not been able to find any information.
Coulson tasked Melinda May, Antoine Triplett, and Skye to act as back-up for Isabelle Hartley, Idaho, andLance Hunter who were attempting to buy information from a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent when they were attacked by Carl Creel, who stole the information on an 0-8-4 that they sought.
When Creel was identified as the assassin, Coulson sent Skye to see Grant Ward, now their prisoner in Vault D, who promised her that he would always be truthful with her. He told her how HYDRA communicated secretly to its agents, but before he could discuss her father, she returned him to isolation.
She was then sent on a two-pronged mission to obtain the Obelisk and a Quinjet. As Hartley, Idaho, and Hunter left the Government Storage Warehouse with the alien artifact to get Hartley medical attention, Skye and Triplett stole a Quinjet and used its cloaking technology to escape, while May departed on a motorcycle.
After bringing the Quinjet to the Playground, Skye learned about the deaths of Idaho and Hartley. She was told by Coulson to pack Hartley's possessions; Hunter approached and he and Skye had a talk about Hartley, her family, and his friendship with her.
Skye, May, Hunter and Triplett later went to Creel's location to arrest him and retrieve the Obelisk. Hunter shot Skye and the others with an I.C.E.R. to pursue Creel himself.
Calvin Zabo later told Raina that he needed Skye to explain the symbols on the Obelisk.
Skye chose to continue her training with May who told her that killing was not an easy task. Skye then talked with Ward about HYDRA's recruitment policies towards gifted individuals. She learned that HYDRA could be very persuasive and that if the gifted refused, they would be crossed off. She accompanied May and Hunter to Casablanca to help Donnie Gill, who was on board the Maribel del Mar. However, they were too late to save him from HYDRA re-triggering his brainwashing program. Skye was forced to shoot Gill and took a shot at HYDRA agent Sunil Bakshi, who was saved by Simmons, in order to make sure that her cover was maintained.
When she returned from Morocco, she went into Vault D to ask Ward if he had been brainwashed into working for HYDRA. Ward told her that since he will always be honest with her, the truth was no. Suspicious of Ward's motives, Skye questioned his honesty streak. Ward revealed that he wanted her to believe him when he says that he can lead her to her father. Skye quickly left the cell.
HYDRA went on to perform an experiment at a wedding where the effects of the Obelisk were partially duplicated. This got the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the field agents approached Coulson for instruction. Skye saw the symbols scribbled into Coulson's desk and questioned him, to his disapproval.
As she was researching the symbols, Lance Hunter suggested to Skye that she consult Grant Ward. Ward desperately hoped that she was not the one writing the symbols. He told her that John Garrett did it more and more after his infusion with GH.325, causing Skye to realize that Coulson was the one writing. When Ward told her that Raina was his source on information about her father, she refused to listen.
Just as Skye confronted Coulson about his carvings and he revealed that she could be an alien, Raina called for a meeting. At La Comtesse Furieuse, Skye was with Melinda May listening. She heard Raina say that her father has been seeking her all her life and that she can escort her to him. Skye attempted to leave, but May was forced to physically disallow it. After Raina's plan failed, Skye sneaked off to find her father.
At his hideout, she found a picture of him before Coulson and the others arrived. When May found two bodies on the floor, Skye called him a monster, causing him to anger as he was watching hidden cameras from his car.
Skye confronted Coulson again when all returned to the Playground. She wanted full disclosure from Coulson and he decided to give it. He told her that he was upset that the symbols are incomprehensible to him; she revealed that she believes that they are a map.
Skye went down to Vault D and asked Grant to give information pertaining to his brother Christian. Digressing from his family to Skye's, Ward told her that her father killed everyone in the Hunan village because they were all HYDRA agents who killed her mother. As Skye was having an emotional breakdown, Coulson reactivated the Inertial Confinement Laser Barrier, telling Skye to stay on point.
Skye returned to the cell and begged Ward for all the information he had on her father. After he gave it, Coulson had him handcuffed to be put in federal custody. Passing Skye, he called to her, but she did not respond.
HYDRA and S.H.I.E.L.D. finally come to a head when Daniel Whitehall, Raina and Calvin Zabo plan to use the Diviner. Calvin uses Grant Ward to kidnap Skye, so Coulson takes the team to rescue her and to recieve the Diviner. Coulson kills Whitehall but is attacked by Zabo, Skye manages to convince her father to let Coulson go.
After apologizing to Coulson for what her father has done, Skye promises she will fix it. She chases after Raina who has went to activate the Diviner. When Skye finally catches up with Raina, Agent Trip follows. Tripp and Skye are too late to stop Raina and she triggers terrigenesis. Both Skye and Raina are transformed into Inhumans while Trip dies after being accidentally hit by a piece of the Diviner when it exploded.
Coming to terms with being an Inhuman Edit
When Skye comes out of her terrigenesis, she instantly causes an earthquake which collapses the temple around her. When Coulson's team finds her, she is alive and they place her in temporary isolation as they are not sure what she has been exposed to.
A civilian new recruit and computer hacker, described as "bubbly and goofy" but "also warm, edgy and witty." It's been revealed that due to being an orphan, Skye has spent most of her life without much stability. As such she has developed a thick-skin, rarely trusting people, particularly those in authority. She often uses dry humor and sarcasm to distract and distance herself from situations and people that make her uncomfortable, or simply to lighten the mood during particularly stressful situations. Still, regardless of how protective she is of herself, Skye often sees the best in other people, such as with Mike Peterson. Skye can also become extremely loyal to those who earn her trust, in particular Coulson's team. Soon after joining, she grew to appreciate each member of the team, and would do anything and everything in her power to help and protect them. However, should someone ever betray her or her friends, that trust is gone, as was the case with Agent Ward upon his betrayal as a HYDRA agent.
Skye has been shown capable of holding her own in most situations. She is shown to be very good at improvising in stressful situations. Once such example includes impersonating Agent May to give the team Coulson's coordinates despite the tracking bracelet which would shut down any tech she tried to use.
Skye is a biracial Chinese American woman with dark brown hair and brown eyes. Her height is about 5'6".
Powers and Abilities Edit
Skye is an Inhuman, and thus holds the potential to obtain superpowers when exposed to mist from the Terrigen Crystals within the Diviner.
- Seismic Energy Generation: After transforming, Skye gained the ability to generate and manipulate powerful vibrations which can produce effects including shockwaves and earthquakes. She is immune to any direct harmful effects of the vibrations.
- Master Hacker: Skye is an accomplished computer hacker with a wide range of contacts through the Rising Tide hacktivist group. On many missions, these skills are utilized for intelligence gathering and data interpretation. Phil Coulson put her in charge of the Clairvoyant mission because she "sees things in unique ways" and was a master at pattern recognition and analysis; in other words, she picks up on patterns that others do not notice.
- Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant: From her time training under Agent Ward and May respectively, Skye has become a very good fighter. A fast learner, Skye was able to effectively use defensive maneuvers taught to her during the beginning of her training. Since becoming a full agent, Skye is able to hold her own against if not defeat more experienced S.H.I.E.L.D. agents as shown against Agent 33.
- Jemma Simmons - Friend and co-worker sisterly feelings.
- Leo Fitz - Friend and co-worker brotherly feelings.
- Grant Ward - Former friend and supervising officer, (?)love interest.
- Agent Coulson - Superior officer (father figure).
- Agent May - Supervising officer.
- Jiaying - Biological mother
- Calvin Zabo/The Doctor - Biological father.
- Lance Hunter - Colleague/friend.
- Bobbi Morse - Friend/colleague.
- Antoine "Trip" Triplett - Friend/colleague.
- Miles Lydon - Former love interest
- Lincoln Campbell - Transitioner and friend, (?)love interest.
- Her name and status as an 0-8-4 has led to as yet unsubstantiated speculation that she's an alien. As of the 19th episode, "The Only Light in the Darkness", it is confirmed that Skye was given the name "Mary Sue Poots" by St. Agnes Orphanage. In episode "What They Become" it is revealed that her real name is Daisy Johnson.
- In "Girl in the Flower Dress", it's revealed that all information about her origins was redacted by S.H.I.E.L.D. on 23 April 1989, possibly locked in a clearance level above Level 8, since even Phillip Coulson knew nothing about her in "Pilot".
- It is revealed in the episode, "Seeds", that a "senior agent" was holding onto Skye as a baby whilst he was mortally wounded with a gunshot wound to the neck with which he later bled out. In a much later episode, "End Of The Beginning", it is revealed that Agent Garrett - also a senior agent - received a third degree burn to the neck which he presented to Skye in the interrogation room whilst giving the agent his information and phone for the upcoming mission. It is not yet known if there is any connection to Garrett and Skye.
- It appears she's a fan of Harry Potter or is simply aware of its fiction. ("Repairs"; "Ye Who Enter Here")
- In the interim time between "Beginning of the End" and "Shadows" Skye has, and continued to be undergoing personal training from May as a field agent.
- According to the Marvel wiki, the mainstream version of Daisy Johnson at least is not a mutant, her powers arising from self-inflicted cellular damage passed on genetically by her father, Calvin Zabo.
- It is revealed in the episode, "Melinda", that Skye was born on July 2, 1988, making her 26 years old (a year older than she previously believed).
Skye: Listen, you cannot walk away from this. With great power comes a...ton of weird crap that you are not prepared to deal with.
Skye: You guys are making a big mistake.
Grant: You don't look that big.
Skye Well, just because you're reasonable [pokes Ward's chest] and [pokes ward again]...firm, doesn't mean that you're not a evil faceless government toolbag.
WardJust give us your guy's name.
Skye He's not my guy.
Coulson You understand he's in danger.
Skye Then let me go, let me talk to him, me, not the T-1,000 here.
Ward you wanna' be alone with him, 'course. She's a groupie, all this hacking into shield, tracking powers, she might as well be one of those sweaty cosplay girls crowding around Stark Tower.
Skye What?! I would...[shakes her head]. one time.
Skye: Usually one person doesn't have the whole solution, but 100 people with 1% of the solution that will get it done. I think that's beautiful, pieces solving a puzzle.
Ward: You and I see the world differently.
Quinn's Main Guard: [after Skye takes Quinn's gun] Kid's got balls.
Skye: Thanks, but yuck.
Ian Quinn: But do you have what it takes to pull the trigger?
Skye: ...Nope. [Skye turns around, jumps off the balcony and into the pool]
Skye: What's up Phil?
Coulson: I prefer you not call me Phil.
Skye: Ok, you're the boss AC.
"Girl in the Flower Dress"
Skye: Did you just give me a compliment?
Ward: I - no, I made a comment.
Skye: A kind one. Did it physically hurt to do that? Do you need an ice pack? [Ward smiles]
Skye: Wow! A compliment and a smile.
Skye: You guys may think it's old news, but it's new... news to everybody else. So, Asgardians are aliens from another planet that visited us thousands of years ago?
Coulson: Or more.
Skye: And because we couldn't understand aliens, we thought they were gods?
Coulson: That's where our Norse mythology comes from.
Skye: That's too crazy. Do you think other deities are aliens, too? Vishnu for sure, right?
Fitz: No! You do not touch that! Two semesters minimum of holographic engineering before you touch this!
Skye: All right, All right. I get it. I didn't go to your stupid SHIELD Hogwarts or whatever.
Skye: "Bad seed" isn’t a S.H.I.E.L.D. term, Ward. Just a term.
May: I'm furious, but I sure as hell am not going to waste it on a tantrum. I'm gonna mine it, save it, and when we find Ward, I'm going to use every bit of it to take him down.
Skye: Wish I knew how to use that hate-fu.
Skye: I'm really sorry, tough to lose people you care about.
Hunter: Secret to that - don't get attached.
Skye: Tried that. Didn't work. For you either.
Hunter: You know, you remind me a bit of Izzy. Raw but sharp, you've got skills.
Skye: As a mercenary? Yeah, I don't think so.
Hunter: We prefer the term private military contractors. Don't knock it, everyone needs an exit strategy eventually.
Skye: Not me. S.H.I.E.L.D.'s my life now.
Hunter: S.H.I.E.L.D. isn't a life, it's just a job, means to an end. Remember that.
Skye: I know you're the boss and you have to compartmentalize everything, but it's not healthy. You need to loosen up. Try yoga or something.
Coulson:I tried it, but I'm really not flexible.
Skye: Hold on, are you saying that I'm an alien?!
Coulson: It's a theory.
Skye: No, a theory is what scientists use to prove things in nature, this is you telling me that I might be an alien! That's not something you just say like it's no big deal!
Coulson: I was trying not to rattle you.
Skye: Guess what? Epic fail!
Skye: May gave out specific instructions: you go on a date with a crazy wall. I get to chaperone.
Skye: In the history of bad ideas, this is light years ahead of everything.
Coulson: No. Trying to bring dead agents back to life using alien blood blows everything else away.
Ward:Checking exits, numbers of men, weapons inventory. I'm impressed. How's your marksmanship?
Skye: I don't know. Hand me your side arm, let's find out.
Skye: Never turn your back on the enemy. You taught me that. [after she shot Ward]
