Madeline: I think it's pretty clear. Operations is a better choice than Petrosian.
Nikita: Better for whom?
Madeline: If you had doubts, why did you side with us?
Nikita: Petrosian was willing to give me a life, as much as one can have inside Section. But in order to get it, I lied, I bullied, and, who knows, eventually I might have even... killed in cold blood. In other words, I found out what it's like to...to be you.
Madeline: And you didn't like it.
Nikita: No, I didn't.
Madeline: Power is addictive, Nikita. You've had a taste. It's in your blood now.
Nikita: You're wrong.
Madeline: You'll be back. It's only a matter of time. But there'll be one difference. The next time... I'll be waiting for you.
