The 100 tried to stop a war in “The Tinder Box,” and while that was a success (albeit, one that resulted in Clarke having to give 50 of the spots in the ship to Roan), it didn’t matter by episode’s end because the ship was no more.

Here are the best quotes from “The Tinder Box.”

The 100 Recap: Can Clarke Prevent Roan from Attacking Arkadia?>>>

“It is a trap. We’re already in it.”
Echo: “What if it’s a trap?”
Roan: “It is a trap. We’re already in it.”

“Who wants to go for a ride?”
– Raven, upon finding the rocket that can take them back to space

“Any other choices I’m missing?”
Harper: “Maybe he went home.”
Monty: “Or he’s headed to that cave to execute the king of the people that made him a slave. Any other choices I’m missing?”
– when Riley goes MIA

“Stopping a war.”
Harper: “You’ll never make it past the army. What are you doing?”
Monty: “Stopping a war.”

“I don’t believe in miracles.”
Clarke: “Roan, this isn’t a conspiracy. I am doing everything I can to save all of us.”
Roan: “No, you’re not. You grieve for Lexa, yet you learned nothing from her. She was Trikru but she rose above loyalty to clan. You tell yourself you have too, the great Wanheda, the commander of death, who says she wants to save everyone yet builds a ship for herself, for her people.”
Clarke: “The Nightblood solution will save everyone.”
Roan: “I don’t believe in miracles.”

“Ain’t we a pair?”

Roan: “And I was willing to sacrifice mine to help you. Ain’t we a pair?”

The 100 Interview: EP Jason Rothenberg on Clarke’s Grief and Bellamy’s Regrets>>>

“That seems to be the consensus.”
Monty: “One of our people has moved out of formation. I have reason to believe he’s trying to kill your king.”
Echo: “Why are you telling me this?”
Bellamy: “Why do you think he’s telling you this? He’s trying to stop a massacre.”
Kane: “Who is it?”
Monty: “Riley.”
Bellamy: “Riley? He shouldn’t even be here.”
Monty: “That seems to be the consensus.”

“I drive, you cook. Sound like a plan?”
“We have a rocket. We have to go to space and make Nightblood. It’s a two-seater, by the way. I drive, you cook. Sound like a plan?”
– Raven to Abby

“So, what, I survive long enough for everyone else to die? I can’t do that, Abby. Even if it costs me my life. You have to let me go.”
Abby: “Raven, your brain scan showed evidence of a stroke. I’m afraid that if you keep pushing like this, it’s just going to make things worse.”
Raven: “I’ve been through worse, doc.”
Abby: “Not worse than this. Raven, it could kill you.”
Raven: “Could or will? So, what, I survive long enough for everyone else to die? I can’t do that, Abby. Even if it costs me my life. You have to let me go.”

“If you had killed her, these chains would be around your neck.”

The 100 405 chains.jpgEcho: “I’m glad you’ll get a chance to say goodbye to your sister before it comes. Unless we all die here today.”
Bellamy: “If you had killed her, these chains would be around your neck.”
Echo: “It’s like Queen Nia used to say: War makes murderers of us all.”

“We don’t need to be happy. We need to survive.”
Roan: “50 spots apiece. I can live with that.”
Clarke: “Can your people? They wanted war.”
Roan: “I’m a king, Clarke. I don’t have to ask my people what they want. The real question is, how are you gonna sell this to your people? They won’t be happy about losing half their seats in the lifeboat.”
Clarke: “We don’t need to be happy. We need to survive.”

“Trust me when I tell you if this turns into a massacre, it will never get out of your head.”
“Your life was saved for a reason, and this isn’t it … Trust me when I tell you if this turns into a massacre, it will never get out of your head. War made me a murderer. Don’t let it happen to you.”
– Bellamy, talking down Riley
