  • Quotes

    • Nikita: I know we're not all one big, happy family, but we are in this together...for better or worse. I need to believe it's for the better.
      Ryan: If we continue hunting the dirty thirty, we have got to do it smarter, quieter. Forget small footprint. It's got to be no footprint. So can we do this?
      Nikita: Let's find out.

    • Nikita: (referring to the president) You tell her the truth, they'll kill us.
      Ryan: We say nothing, he kills her.
      Nikita: No. We are going to stop Markov. Division is going to save the president's life without her even knowing her life was in danger, because she is wrong about us. We have changed.

    • Birkhoff: You got a better idea?
      Ryan: There aren't any better ideas.
      Nikita: Yes, there is. We run. Tell everyone in here that their government is trying to kill them, and then we open the barn doors.
      Ryan: You can't be serious. And have 300 agents panic and go rogue?
      Nikita: Or what, wait to be slaughtered?
      Ryan: It's not gonna come to that.
      Nikita: Can you guarantee that? Are you giving me your word, Ryan?

    • Ryan: Birkhoff and Sonya came to me with something. Looks like Amanda knew exactly when the attack on medical went down.
      Nikita: Knew how?
      Ryan: The bad version? Somebody told her.
      Nikita: A mole. Well, I guess we shouldn't be surprised. Probably too much to hope that this was one big, happy ship.
      Ryan: The Titanic was a happy ship right until the end.
