  • Quotes

    • Madeline: After you left home, Nate promised to take me away from Miami. He was such a big dreamer, you know. He wanted to go to walk the pyramids and ski the Alps. He just wanted to go so badly. Anyway, it just doesn't seem right leaving him here alone.
      Michael: He wanted to take you to a better place, Ma. He wanted you safe. He wanted you to smile again. Let me keep that promise. I owe it to you and to Nate.

    • Schmidt: So, were you-were you really gonna hand me over to that animal?
      Michael: I needed you to think I was. Vanek had to see real fear in your eyes, otherwise he wouldn't move his men over towards the transformer.
      Schmidt: Wow. Really?
      Michael: I'm not saying it wasn't a long shot.
      Schmidt: What you're saying is that you have X-ray vision. Because there's no way you could have known that that transformer was there when you marched me out.
      Michael: If it wasn't the transformer, it would have been something else. I needed to make an opening for Jesse to get his truck in.
      Schmidt: You can say all that with a straight face. Wow. You're good. You're good. Is that the same load of crap that you shovel down your team's throat?
      Michael: All anyone needs to know is that I didn't want you to die, and you didn't die.

    • Sam: I can't believe you talked him into doing this.
      Fiona: I didn't talk him into anything. It was the only option, and you know it.
      Sam: Yeah, well, leaving a man behind should never be an option.

    • Michael: (voice-over) If you need to make a clean exit, putting an electrical transformer between you and your enemy will help make sure there won't be a firefight. All it takes is one bullet and create an explosive power surge. Of course, sometimes an explosive power surge is exactly what you need.

    • Michael: (voice-over) When you're in the field, the goal is usually to be in complete communication with your team to work in perfect sync at all times. But when the weight of a mission threatens to tear your team apart, there are times when you're forced to mislead even the people you're closest to, because the toughest decisions are the ones you have to make all by yourself.

    • Michael: (voice-over) The tough thing about going up against someone carrying a machine pistol is that they fire over 1,000 rounds a minute. The good news is that they're notoriously inaccurate at long distances, so if you keep moving, If you stop, on the other hand, you're bound to catch a bullet.

    • Michael: (voice-over) Industrial suction fans spin at more than 1,400 rpm and weigh as much as 500 pounds. Trying to physically stop one requires using an object heavy enough to stop its linear momentum. And if you don't want to throw your back out, it's best to let the fan do most of the work for you.

    • Michael: (voice-over) If you want to scare someone into thinking their vehicle is malfunctioning, nothing is more convincing than a small explosion. The Mercury fulminate in a blasting cap gives you the perfect amount of explosive to send the message loud and clear without killing the vehicle or anyone in it.

    • Michael: (voice-over) When you're being chased, you want to be driving something with speed, maneuverability, and stability. In other words, you want to be driving anything but a container van. If you find yourself in an underpowered vehicle with a high center of gravity and a top speed of 60, your best bet is to attack whoever's after you with everything you have. If an attack's out of the question, it's all about getting as much distance as you can between yourself and your pursuers and bailing out.

    • Michael: (voice-over) One of the biggest challenges of being a fugitive is security. When you're being hunted, you have to be on your guard around the clock. If you're hiding in a safe house, that means keeping an eye out the window, having your weapon ready, and spending some quality time in front of perimeter cams. And sometimes, just as important as keeping your enemy out is holding your team in.

    • Michael: (voice-over) When you're on the run and you're planning on doing some serious international travel, you need to be prepared to put together some top-notch travel documents. Making a fake I.D. that can reliably cross a border these days isn't just a matter of getting special paper and a hologram sticker. You need some very expensive, high technology. Unfortunately, the people who sell that kind of technology tend to be very unpleasant and very well-armed.

    • Michael: (voice-over) In the intelligence world, when an operation demands that you disappear, it's understood that you will disappear entirely. You can't have anything that links you to your former life. No credit history, no communication with friends, and nothing with your old name on it. That's hard enough for an intelligence professional to deal with. For a civilian, it's nearly impossible.
