  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Adrian: Hello, Nikita. (Michael slips behind her and puts a gun to her head)
      Nikita: He won't kill me.
      Adrian: He might not, but I will.

    • Operations: (after Michael steals Adrian) Until this matter is resolved, there are no missions.

    • Birkoff: I don't want to know this! I gotta get back. I'm not gonna report you, but you're on your own.
      Michael: Birkoff, if the process is successful, they'll use it on all of us. Nikita's just the beginning.

    • Birkoff: Most recruits give up after their first talk with Madeline. But if you still have any illusions about getting out of here, I'm going to introduce you to Walter.
      Dori: Who's Walter?
      Birkoff: He's the guy who's going to issue you a gun and a single bullet. Because taking your own life is the only way you're going to get out.

    • Operations: You said Michael was testing Nikita. You were wrong, and now he has the advantage.
      Madeline: Even if he's tapped in, I've made sure Gelman's program can't be accessed. Not from outside.
      Operations: We can take all the precautions in the world, but this is Michael we're dealing with.

    • Nikita: You want me to kill Michael?
      Madeline: Is that a problem?
      Nikita: No.

    • Michael: Do you know who you are?
      Nikita: Do I know who I am? I'm me... and I love you.
      Michael: Do you? Or do you want to kill me?
      Nikita: Why are you talking like this?
      Michael: If I hand you this gun, are you going to shoot me? You won't have any reason to hesitate. The order has been given. (he hands her the gun)
      Nikita: Michael. (she pulls the trigger, but it's unloaded) You don't belong here anymore, Michael.
      Michael: Why are you saying that?
      Nikita: 'Cause you don't have what it takes. If you did, I'd be dead.
