Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (season 1) character dialogue by episode

by FreeKresge | created - 27 Nov 2017 | updated - 12 Mar 2021 | Public

This list ranks characters for each episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (season 1) by the amount of dialogue (measured in words) that they had in that episode. This list was inspired by an old web site, the The Hellmouth High's Line League (link via archive.org), which performed a similar analysis for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Like that site, this list will award medals to the top three finishers for each episode.

For each episode, the number of words that each characters speaks were calculated using transcripts available on the web. All characters with credited dialogue appear on the episode lists. If dialogue is credited to more than one character (i.e., two characters saying the same dialogue simultaneously), the dialogue is split evenly between the characters. This occasionally results in characters being credited with half words.

The data below are not perfectly accurate. For example, transcribing a bit of dialogue as "100%" will provide a slightly different result than if the dialogue were transcribed as "one hundred percent." Various sounds like a grunt or "um" or "uh-uh" or "hyah" may or may not be transcribed. Finally, I have noticed occasional errors in the transcriptions.

Feel free to use the data below for your own projects, and leave a comment indicating where readers can see the results of the project.

Warning: This page contains spoilers at least as far as who does or does not appear in any given episode and how prominent that character is in the episode.

See season 2 character dialogue per episode for season two data, season 3 character dialogue per episode for season three data, season 4 character dialogue per episode for season four data, season 5 character dialogue per episode for season five data, season 6 character dialogue per episode for season six data, and season 7 character dialogue per episode for season seven data.
