- Stop it, father. You know what my power is. I can see the truth. There was no Skrull. You lied. You always lie. I won't tell anyone. I love you...I can't help that. But I can never respect you again. ... And very time you look at me, you'll see it, you'll always remember what you did. Even if it stays...unspoken.
