- "The first time somebody asked me about manga, I thought he said 'mango'. I honestly had never even heard that term before. I was like, 'Why are you asking me about fruit'? That didn't work out so well for me."

-"I don't think that Mohinder necessarily sees himself in the Professor X position, though in terms of the story he is. I don't think Mohinder sees himself as 'only human'. I think he is glad he is not one of the people with powers, because Sylar keeps killing them!"
