Olivia Dunham, her alternative self and their relationship through time
We work as a team. We cover for each other. We lean on each other. The job is too big to do solo. And if you can’t get that, maybe you should be a surgeon or a superhero, or something else that doesn’t require trusting people.

Because of Amelia, Helena went to the church and Sarah to the state; because of Amelia, Rachel went to the corporation. All three were assimilated not into families like Alison or Cosima but into groups, into systems, and the relationship between individual and system is one that Orphan Black loves to explore. Because of this choice, OB is mobilizing Sarah, Helena, and Rachel into the three most important clone pillars this season, as the mystery unravels. They are thematically representative, narratively connected, and poised for conflict. More so than the others, they act not only of their individual will but also as a result of their contextual upbringing. - Orphan Black 2.04, “Governed As It Were By Chance”
"Me, Richard, Alfie, and Kit, we sort of rule the young ‘uns for being the exact same age and starting at the same time. We took on this adventure together. It’s quite lovely that we’re all still very much in love with each other. And then obviously, my girl Rose Leslie, who is just the coolest chick on the entire planet. I’m determined - determined! - to be a wildling extra at some point, just to find her and kind of say, ‘I’m in Iceland!’, and see what she says. We’re complete geeks, all of us. Of course, each of us thinks we’re the one that’s going to win.” — Emilia Clarke
