    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (13)

      • Alex: Microwave interference transmission weapon. You'd think they could come up with a better name. The Zapper, Engine Killer, or something…
        Ed: Alex, we're not here to road test its name, we're just here to see if it works.

      • Ed: How'd you know all of that? I mean, this stuff's supposed to be Code Red clearance.
        Alex: It gets a bit boring just filing.
        Ed: Alex, don't tell me you read the files.
        Alex: Only the most secret ones.

      • Beckett: Come on, Ed, a vehicle that size can't just disappear and what about the registration number, eh?
        Ed: Listen, I'd have taken Polaroids, I was a bit busy saving Alex's life!

      • Jan: What kind of operation are we running? We've lost a major new weapon, the Bureau Chief, and the man who holds the future peace of Europe in his hands!

      • Van Straaten: Everything I did was in the cause of peace.
        Trozek: Your peace plan will deny us what we rightfully own.
        Beckett: Oh come on, nobody rightfully owns anything with a gun in their hands!

      • Van Straaten: General Chenlov, what are you doing so far from the battlefield?
        Chenlov: This is the battlefield. I'm here to end the war my way.

      • Ed: Don't worry, Alex, we'll get Beckett back. Just don't call him Nick to his face, only Ros can get away with that kind of thing.

      • Van Straaten: Let him kill me. This is what he really wants, revenge on me for humiliating them.
        Trozek: Oh, I want revenge, but killing you won't be nearly enough!

      • Van Straaten: Shouldn't have done it, Beckett. One life compared to thousands, millions. It's a bad trade.
        Beckett: The way I see it, sir, while you're still alive, the hope for peace is still alive. In my book, that's a good trade.

      • Ros: You were worried about Beckett, weren't you?
        Alex: Well, I…
        Ros: It's okay. Just don't let your feelings get in the way of the work, that's all.

      • Alex: Shelly Lammers, burglary, armed robbery, computer fraud. Looks very unsavoury.
        Beckett: Sounds just like you, Ros.
        Ros: Thank you!

      • Ros: I could net us a quarter of a billion a piece. Diamonds, hard currency in anyone's language.
        Trozek: I'm not a thief, I'm a politician seeking self-determination for my people.
        Ros: That's very noble, but I'm sure you and your people could use the loot.

      • Beckett: Go on then, shoot. You still won't have the code.
        Trozek: What a brave little beurocrat!
