No, it's not from something that Galen said. It's not literal, like that. For me, it's the look of realization that came over Galen's face after he read the message, and heard/remembered Isabelle's words. It's as if somebody threw a switch and you can just see Galen's mind going to strongly suspect that the alien sent the message. The alien tapped into Galen's mind and Galen knows it. IMHO, Galen suspects that the alien manufactured the transmission, possibly to give him some peace/forgiveness.

I think Matheson is just agreeing and empathizing with Galen over the message coming from nowhere in particular. Neither one knows what to believe.

He'd certainly be a good friend.
