From Chloe’s sudden belief in the devil’s evilness to Amenadiel’s sudden sadistic streak, Lucifer characters have quotes that clash with who they are.
Netflix’s Lucifer did a good job in making viewers understand how the protagonists and antagonists’ minds worked through dialogue. The show featured largely stylish quotes for suave personalities like Lucifer Morningstar and Mazikeen, while goofier ones such as Daniel and Amenadiel said things that were meant for comedy.
Still, there were times when the characters acted in ways that viewers wouldn’t expect. During these times, they made claims that no one would have seen coming and remain out of place even after the series has come to an end. Now that all is said and done, it’s worth looking into the quotes that fans will be surprised came from the characters that uttered them.
“If You Want To See Something Really Scary, Wait Until You You See What Your All-Soy Diet Is Doing To Your Bone Density.”
While it would seem that commenting on a person’s appearance is true to Lucifer’s character, he only did it in terms of fashion sense. On this occasion, Lucifer seemed to be taking a dig at Daniel’s physique as well as his masculinity, which was strange.
Lucifer was never the kind of person to judge how masculine or feminine a person was, making his judgment on Daniel uncharacteristically mean-spirited. He said it right after he came back from Hell in the fifth season, which is also odd since Lucifer was fond of Daniel and wouldn’t have insulted him on a personal level straightaway.
“Your 30 Seconds In Hell Felt 30 Years. Imagine What Eternity Would Feel
Amenadiel’s characterization has been slightly lopsided considering he appeared more in line with how he was in later seasons during flashbacks, yet he was cold and calculating in Season 1. Amenadiel was overall a warm-hearted angel who didn’t enjoy the idea of someone in Hell.
For this reason, his taunting of Malcolm Graham didn’t come across as something Amenadiel would say. He was not only threatening Malcolm, but seemed to derive pleasure at the idea of pain and suffering. Amenadiel was never a fan of Hell or torture, which is why his sadistic quote feels out of place.
“We Are Not Friends.”
Daniel acted out of character for the majority of the fourth season, blaming Lucifer for Charlotte’s death when he wasn’t connected to it. He was completely out of line when he uttered this, claiming everyone found Lucifer sickening and that he didn’t appreciate his and Lucifer’s banter.
Daniel had risked his life to save Lucifer both before and after this moment, so it makes no sense that he would say he wasn’t friends with Lucifer. Daniel also found his teasing relationship with Lucifer to be funny, so it was obvious they were pals despite what he said.
“I Am Sick Of Your Goody-Two-Shoes Ex-Wife And Your Stupid Brat.”
A bond between a child and a demon shouldn’t work, yet Maze and Trixie were one of the best friendships in Lucifer. Trixie was the only person Maze didn’t threaten, even displaying her soft spot when she had Chloe and Trixie move in because she wanted to live with the latter.
However, during an argument with Daniel, Maze hit him with a round of insults, claiming she didn’t like Chloe and Trixie. Even the show was aware how out of character it was of Maze to say something like this, as she was then wracked with guilt when Trixie overheard her and attempted many times to apologize.
Dr. Linda Martin
“You’re A Demon. Please Go.”
If there was one character who had the potential to come to terms with Lucifer and Maze’s truth, it was Linda. She saw people for their personalities and nature, rather than how dangerous they could be. That wasn’t the case when it actually happened, though, as Linda became withdrawn and terrified.
Even when Maze tried to explain and claimed she was still Linda’s best friend, the latter only uttered this quote. At this moment, she wasn’t acting scared as much as she seemed to be cold. It wasn’t the way Linda would conduct herself, especially considering how she quickly became okay with the cosmic angle an episode later.
“Tell The Demons To Come And Help Me Save Lucifer.”
Apart from the ending of the fourth season, Eve was never depicted as a villain or a threat. Her killing of Father Kinley was also surprising, where Eve told Kinley to tell the demons in Hell to invade Earth and “save” Lucifer.
Eve acted like a total antagonist at that moment and her words were delivered with a kind of maliciousness that was unlike her. It appears that the series became aware of this as well, as Eve’s appearances in the fifth and sixth seasons had her once again being bubbly and charming the way she usually was.
“He’s Going To Be Okay. It’s Not True!
The death of Daniel is a contender for the most heartbreaking moment in Lucifer. Trixie’s reaction to her father’s passing was understandable, but her disbelief and helplessness weren’t suited to her character. After all, Trixie was the kind of person who accepted things very quickly,
She wasn’t phased as an 8-year-old when Malcolm had abducted her and Chloe at the end of the first season. Trixie also came to terms with Daniel’s death only a month later in the sixth season. There’s also the fact that Trixie had grown up quite a bit by the fifth season and the quote would have suited a younger Trixie than the preteen she was at that point.
“How Can I Accept Myself When This Darkness Is Such A Part Of Who I Am?”
Ella learning about her friends’ cosmic nature wasn’t the biggest surprise in the final season, as fans were more taken aback with how the season didn’t deal with her inner darkness. It was alluded to in the fifth season when Ella claimed she liked watching people die and completed it with this quote.
It was an altogether bizarre moment for her, seeing as Ella had earlier been friends with the Angel of Death, who befriended her because she was inherently good-natured. The show never followed through with Ella’s sudden malicious tendencies either, making her words odd and confusing to who she really was.
“Every Story Throughout Time Says That You Are The Embodiment Of Evil! How Am I Supposed To Deal With That?”
Chloe took the realization of Lucifer’s true nature the worst, resulting in her questioning if he was evil. Her reaction was out of character though, because Chloe was originally an atheist and didn’t have any inclination to believe that the devil was how he was painted out to be.
Her words hurt Lucifer on a personal level, as he realized she was no different than the billions of humans who blamed him for their own evil actions. Chloe had been around Lucifer for years, so her claim of not knowing how to deal with him wasn’t something that made sense to have crossed her mind.
