Madeline: Has Petrosian offered you my position yet?
Madeline: And what did you say?
Nikita: If I say no, he's going to offer it to somebody else.
Madeline: That's not the point.
Nikita: What is the point?
Madeline: The point is you don't have what it takes to do my job. And, if you try, you'll only end by destroying yourself.
