      • QUOTES (4)

        • Nikita: Look, if you don't want to be out in the field anymore, that's fine. Owen's ready to be my partner, and I've worked solo for many years, so I can handle myself.
          Michael: Nikita, what do you want?
          Nikita: I want you to fight! For me! For us! I don't need you as my partner in the field. I need you as my partner in my life. So fight!

        • Sean: I wanted you to make a choice. Me or this place. That's why I left.
          Alex: How could I have made a choice when you were already gone?
          Sean: Well, you could have called.
          Alex: You could have come back.
          Sean: That's why I'm here.
          Alex: Look, what you said, about what most people would do? Don't ever expect that from me. Most people haven't seen their father murdered before their eyes. Most people aren't sold into slavery. I'm not most people. Never have been.
          Sean: I know. I know. I should have known that.
          Alex: Yeah, you should have.

        • Nikita: Sean, Owen. Owen, Sean.
          Sean: You know, from what I'd heard, I thought you'd be bigger.
          Owen: Really? I didn't know what you'd look like, because, well, nobody ever talks about you.

        • Owen: (about Michael) If he doesn't get off my case, I'm gonna take his other hand.
          Nikita: Just believe me, he's thinking about you.
          Owen: Yeah, I know exactly what he's thinking of me.
          Nikita: No, I mean he's hard on you for a reason. He, he wants you to be good enough for me. He's not coming back, Owen. Not to field work. He says you're my partner now, for good, and he wants you to be ready for that.
          Owen: Hey. He's trying to do the right thing. All he's doing is leaving behind his life as an agent. That's it.
          Nikita: What if that's not all he's leaving behind?
