    Clary Fray: Look. Suddenly, I'm drawing hundreds of these things and I have no idea what they are. I don't know... I think I'm going out of my mind.

    Simon Lewis: Maybe you're like the guy in "Close Encounters". Everybody thought he was paranoid and then it turned out to be, well... UFO... reasonable...

    [Clary notices Jace, standing outside the cafe, looking directly at her]

    Clary Fray: Oh God, this isn't happening.
