Kelly: Guess no one warned Alex about Saint Nikita.
Nikita: What's that supposed to mean?
Kelly: It's how you operate. You're the only one who can handle the truth. You're the only one who knows the right thing to do. You know, Amanda had a theory about that.
Nikita: Don't care.
Kelly: Liar. She said you need people but you don't trust them. You withhold information to keep them dependent on you, but make their choices for them so they can't disappoint you.
