  • Quotes

    • (Birkhoff steps in front of the camera while Michael is talking to Amanda and Division)
      Birkhoff: You guys think you are badass, huh? You are nothing. You're air. It takes a whole squad of you rejects to even get close to me and I want you to die knowing that!
      (Birkhoff walks off camera)
      Michael: By the way, Birkhoff is not working with us.

    • Michael: So we know from the codenames on the box that there are six members on Oversight. That's one down, five to go. That means we're one step closer to home.
      Nikita: I don't know. Don't get me wrong, I wanna stop running. I've been running my whole life. I want a home, I just want to be able to live with myself when I get there.
      Michael: Hey, it's gonna be hard enough living with me.

    • Michael: (referring to Alex) Nikita, you didn't do anything wrong.
      Nikita: I did. And now I have doubts.
      Michael: About us?
      Nikita: No. No, never. It's about this crusade, to make things right and what it could cost us. I can't lose you. I won't lose you. And if that seems selfish to you then, well, I never said I was perfect, so-- (Michael kisses her)
      Michael: You are not gonna lose me. And you're right, you never said you were perfect. I do.

    • Nikita: (after their heist) How much did we get?
      Michael: Just enough to cover our next mission. Barely. And this is what we have left over. Would you like to buy groceries or ammo this month? Cause we can't have both.
      Nikita: There is a third choice.
      Michael: What's that?
      Nikita: Well, we take all this and you and I buy a little cottage in a non-extradition country of our choice.
      Michael: There's nowhere we can go where Division won't find us. Taking them down is the only way to get free.

    • Nikita: What are you gonna do, shoot me?
      Alex: I've done it before.
      Nikita: To save my life, right? What's it gonna be for this time? Or do you even know? Or does Amanda have you so turned around you don't know what to believe anymore?
      Alex: I know what I believe. And I know what I want. And I'm using Division to get it.
      Nikita: They are using you. It's what they do. You can't trust them.
      Alex: I don't trust anybody!

    • Amanda: Sean, will you excuse us? I'd like to have a word with Alex in private.
      Sean: If it's operational, it's not private.
      Amanda: It's personal.
      Sean: I didn't know that category existed here.
      Amanda: You're new. There are a lot of things about Division you don't know.

    • Amanda: The only reason you're being kept alive is that dead-man switch near your heart. Otherwise, I would have you dissolved today.
      Percy: How about I take that decision away from you?
      Amanda: You mean kill yourself?
      Percy: Knowing that when I die, the remaining three guardians, wherever they're hiding, will release the content of their boxes, all those secrets, all at once.
      Amanda: You won't do that.
      Percy: Why won't I?
      Amanda: Because you love yourself too much. No, what you're going to do is you're going to sit in this box and quietly plot your revenge against me.
      Percy: You have no idea.

    • Nikita: Sometimes, Michael, you try to do the right thing, and you cause more damage.
      Michael: It's about Alex, isn't it?
      Nikita: With any hope, Alex is a million miles from this.
      Michael: You still feel responsible for her.
      Nikita: I put her in the line of fire.
      Michael: No, she put herself there.
      Nikita: I trained her to infiltrate Division. I kept things from her so she would stay on mission. And then I lost her because what I deserve.
