Outlander Season 1, Episode 16 was a traumatic episode, but it delivered some excellent lines. Here are my five favorite from the episode.
It took a while to pluck up the courage to rewatch the Outlander Season 1 finale, but I’m glad I did it. There were some excellent moments that stood out from the episode and some lines that I’d completely forgotten about came up.
This is a pivotal episode to watch in the series. There are some brilliant lines that deepen the story or just add some comedic relief. Here are my five favorite some the episode.
It’s oil of lavender. It’s used to relieve pain.

This line stood out more with a rewatch. Murtagh initially wonders whether someone had tried to help Jamie in Wentworth based on Claire’s words. However, it was clear that this was foreshadowing for what had actually happened.
It doesn’t take too long for Claire to figure things out. Of course, as a healer, she’d use oil of lavender. She would eventually have a way of getting through to Jamie.
My men can have Claire back here within the hour. We have an agreement.
I know a lot of people won’t think anything that was said between Jamie and Black Jack Randall could make it to this list, but this line has always stood out. Jamie tries to resist Randall at first. However, Randall makes it very clear: Claire is only free because of Jamie.
There’s always this threat of bringing Claire back. Jamie gave Randall his word and he’s going to need to go through with it. It shows the love Jamie has for Claire.
Well, you’re not dead, and I refuse to let you spend the rest of your life a cripple. So let me do my job.
Claire’s nursing personality comes through in this moment. As much as she loves Jamie, she needs to keep a level head. During the voice over, she reminds us that working on her husband is very different to working on all the soldiers during World War II.
However, this line is also important because Claire understands what could happen to Jamie if she doesn’t work on his hand right away. She needs to set multiple bones. If she doesn’t, he’ll struggle mentally in the future more than he already will.
But I assure you, he will understand.
This line is from the monk. He offers to hear Claire’s confession, but where can she possibly start? I love this whole moment because Claire finally gets the chance to tell her story to someone. Even though the monk doesn’t understand it all, he never passes judgment.
With this line, he helps offer Claire the freedom to talk. After all, he’s a conduit to talk to God. It’s not the monk who needs to understand, but he has faith that God will.
I never thought I’d be able to say such a thing again, but yes. Yes! I’m verra happy indeed, Sassenach!
Finally, it’s all about the end of the Outlander Season 1 finale. All the throwing up and fainting comes out. Claire is pregnant and she finally has a chance to tell Jamie.
We get to see his grin glow. The smile reaches his eyes. There’s hope that all will be alright after everything that’s happened.
