    • Sterling: Protecting the country involves the keeping of secrets, Mr. President. It always has, and it always will.

    • Martinez: When I woke up this morning, I thought I was going to be making history. Announcing to the world that humanity was not alone, that I was freeing your people to integrate and to live peacefully among us. Now, I was told many times that I was making a mistake and that I didn't know your true agenda. Apparently some even felt so strongly they thought they'd try to kill me before I could make that announcement. And as it turns out, it would have been a mistake. So I'm asking myself over and over, was I naive, or was I guilty of narcissism? Was I so intent on going down in history that I was blind to the truth? Now I'm asking myself these things--Sophia, look at me--I'm asking myself these things because I know I need to take responsibility. And I'm gonna give you a chance to do that too, to tell me your reasons, good or bad, for deceiving me.

    • Martinez: I'm done. The deal's off. You're going back to Inostranka. You and your people will stay there until I get the truth. Sophia: That would be a mistake, Mr. President. My people have been waiting for 66 years. Their patience is running out. Martinez: Is that a threat? Sophia: You wanted the truth. I'm giving it to you.
