He says that Peter still sees himself through everyone else's eyes, and Peter argues, rather unconvincingly, that he doesn't. Claude says that he'll bet him twenty bucks that Papa Petrelli never thought much of him either. Peter just turns and walks away, totally embarrassed. Claude laughs and follows after him, saying that they have to get all "these people" out of Peter's head. Peter doesn't want to get the people out; they're his family. He can't just cut them out. "Peter can't use his powers without someone holding his hands," snits Claude. They've stopped in front of a wall with Nathan's congressional bid posters all over it. "How can you not punch that face every time you see it?" says Claude. Heh. You can punch it, Claude. It'd rather lick it, thanks. Peter says his brother isn't "like that," and Claude says he totally is, and Peter says he doesn't know him, and this is starting to sound a little like an abused girlfriend trying to defend her jaw-breaking boyfriend.
Claude declares that he doesn't need to know Nathan to know that he's a bad person. "I spend a lot of time moving around people's homes, their bedrooms. You get to know people if you see them when they think they're alone. You see them for what they truly are: selfish, deceitful... and gassy." HA! Peter thinks Claude is full of shit and not a little bitter. Claude thinks Peter is a mama's boy who needs to be aware of one thing and one thing only: people suck. "Not all of them," says Peter with a blush. "Oh, riiiiight," says Claude sarcastically. "There's a girl." Peter says she's not like the "rest of them" and Claude says, "Everyone's like the rest. That's why they're the rest." Hee. I'm serious. All the best lines. Peter just stares at Claude who finally says that they should go check out what Simone's doing right this minute so that Peter can clear his head. Peter thinks that they can spy on Simone all they want, they'll still never find any dirt on her because she's a perfect person with eyes the color of china blue teacups. Claude's like, yeah wotevah. Let's go watch Simone make out with Isaac, you fool.
