Hero Quote Audio
  • Baptiste: Healing and hurting... Huh, I guess we're not that different.
  • Moira: Hmph, I assure you we are nothing alike.
  • Cassidy: Always thought hiring you was a mistake.
  • Moira: The best mistake one could ever make.
  • Moira: Our courageous cowboy. The years haven't changed you much, have they, Jesse?
  • Cassidy: They certainly haven't changed my feelings about working with you.

(On Route 66)

  • Moira: Why am I not surprised to learn that you grew up in a place like this, Cassidy?
  • Cassidy: I'm from Texas.
  • Moira: Much more talkative now, aren't you, Genji?
  • Genji: I find the company more agreeable these days.


  • Moira: I always thought you would understand better than most the duality of human existence.
  • Genji: I am at peace with it. I suspect you will be forever unsatisfied.
  • Hanzo: I have heard of your experiments. There is no honour in what you do.
  • Moira: 'Shimada'... where do I know that name from? Oh, that's right. The family of criminals.
  • Junkrat: You looking for a lab assistant? I'm great with chemicals!
  • Moira: Certainly. We would begin by testing your tolerance for pain.
  • Junkrat: Uh... what's pain have to do with science?
  • Moira: Everything, my strange little friend.
  • Moira: Dr. Zhou. I'm interested in your colleagues' research into the long term effects of cryogenic freezing.
  • Mei: Well... Yes... I'm sure... M-maybe... *soft crying*
  • Mercy: Describing your work as unethical would be a kindness.
  • Moira: But the true question is whether or not you can deny my discoveries... No. I didn't think so.


  • Moira: I know we have our differences, but your brilliant mind would be welcome amongst my colleagues in Oasis.
  • Mercy: No, thank you. You and your colleagues discredit the field of science. I want nothing to do with it.
  • Moira: Well, I must never worry about my safety when the brave agents of Helix are with us.
  • Pharah: Don't be so sure about that.
  • Moira: Your condition seems relatively stable.
  • Reaper: No one's accused me of that in a long time.


  • Moira: Your body seems to be adapting well to the changes, Gabriel.
  • Reaper: You call this "well"?
  • Reaper: Why am I being subjected to this agony?
  • Moira: No need to thank me. I only saved your life.
Soldier: 76
  • Soldier: 76: You were a disgrace to Overwatch. If I had known what Reyes had been planning, I would have never allowed it.
  • Moira: It seems to me that it was convenient for you not to look too closely into Gabriel's business.
  • Moira: Started any wars lately?
  • Sombra: I'd have to check my schedule.
  • Moira: Look at this world, Symmetra. See what science has wrought?
  • Symmetra: Of course. Science obeys the laws of nature. It is only to be expected.


  • Moira: Your state of chronal uncertainty is fascinating to me, Tracer. I do wish you would allow me to study you.
  • Tracer: While I'm truly touched by your offer - *nervous laughter* - I think I'll have to pass...
  • Moira: How are you feeling, Lacroix?
  • Widowmaker: I don't feel. That's the point, isn't it?
  • Widowmaker: Our foes make such a nuisance of themselves.
  • Moira: Is that an emotion I detect, Lacroix?
  • Moira: Winston, you were never frustrated at the restrictions Overwatch placed on your research?
  • Winston: Of course. But sometimes, a measure of caution is needed in a scientist.
  • Winston: Overwatch had good reason to shut down your research.
  • Moira: I shouldn't be surprised at such a narrow opinion coming from a jumped. Up. Ape.
  • Moira: I must know how your technology functions.
  • Zenyatta: Existence is mysterious, isn't it?

  • "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars" and "A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world" are by Oscar Wilde.
  • "Despair has its own calms" is from Dracula by Bram Stoker.
  • "This was a triumph'' is a reference to GLaDOS, the main antagonist of Portal. Similarities can be drawn between Moira and GLaDOS, as both are compelled by scientific experimentation while harboring zero regard for the morality of their actions or the mortality of their subjects.
  • "Absolute zero" may be a reference to William Thomson, or Lord Kelvin, a Scots-Irish mathematician who determined the correct, approximate value of absolute zero.
  • "Situational awareness could save your life. I recommend it." may be a re-phrasing of a similar line from Team Fortress 2, "Depth perception, pal. Look into it." Overwatch and TF2 have had many comparisons drawn between them, and both games contain references to the other in the form of voice lines, weapons, and cosmetics.
  • The voice line "Idle hands are the devil's workshop" refers to a verse from the Bible (the Living Bible translation), in the book of Proverbs chapter 16 verse 27.
  • Also from the Overwatch Anniversary, "Good news, everyone" is a reference to Futurama. It could also be a reference to Professor Putricide from World of Warcraft.
  • "I'm not dead yet" may be a reference to the famous Monty Python skit, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
  • Her line from the Overwatch Anniversary event, "Unbelievable", is directly taken from the Overwatch Archives event game mode Retribution.
