    • QUOTES (5)

      • Rorke: Patterson was dangerous. I acted on orders from K.
        Cora: You lied to K. You like to kill.
        Rorke: Maybe you like what you do too, Lady Weston.

      • Cora: There's a kind of bitterness about him. Is he a loser, then?
        Paris: What gambler isn't?

      • Cora: Autumn is my favorite season. The colors make a promise.
        Paris: You're feeling better.
        Cora: A little. We strive so hard and all we really want is this, isn't it? This feeling of being at peace.
        Paris: It takes two, doesn't it?
        Cora: Always two. Solitude's useless. I need a shoulder, Bill. A shoulder to cry on.
        Paris: What do you want to cry about?
        Cora: Nothing. Everything. The world's a failure, you know. Someone, somewhere made a terrible mistake.

      • Paris: Jim, how did she handle herself?
        Jim: She's a very talented young lady.
        Paris: And a very misguided one.
        Jim: She's totally committed, Paris. You aren't her target, but as soon as you are, she'll treat you as coldly...
        Paris: As I'm going to treat her.
        Jim: That's right.

      • Cora: My employers want to arrange asylum for you.
        Paris: Sure, in return for everything I know about American espionage.
        Cora: I'll go with you. We can be together.
        Paris: Cora, can't you stop selling yourself? Or has it become a reflex?
