  • Quotes

    • Steve: Well, I... I... I did have something I wanted to say to you. Uh... you know, Jaime, we've known each other for a long, long, long time, and we've been through a lot together.
      Jaime: Steve...
      Steve: Now... uh... Jaime, just... uh... let me finish... when... two people...
      Jaime: Why don't we get married?
      Steve: Now... uh... please hear me out, Jaime... (stunned) What?!
      Jaime: I said - would you like to get married?
      Steve: Well... I... uh...

      (Jaime nods her head; Steve follows suit.)

    • Jim: So... I hear you're gonna compete in the games.
      Kate: So... I hear you wanna be my trainer.
      Jim: Isn't life full of the most delightful little coincidences?
      Kate: So... you just wheeled on down here to ask me this?
      Jim: Well... beautiful night.
      Kate: It's gonna snow.
      Jim: Time on my hands?
      Kate: It's almost midnight.
      Jim: Tough crowd... Steve and Jaime brought me - they're... uh... they're around the corner... oh, c'mon, Kate... I'd worry about you. I wouldn't be able to sleep... and I... I thought that we could look for my uncle... together. How's that for stackin' the ol' deck?
      Kate: You are a rat!!

    • Kate: Hey, if I'm gonna start working for the O.S.I., I've gotta start sometime, right? But you... you'll be close, right?
      Jaime: Try and get rid of me. Just... please don't run, okay? Please...
      Kate: Okay, we'll jog.

    • (Kate and Jaime are racing; Kate beats Jaime to the bridge).
      Jaime: (panting from exertion) I'm not doing this again... anymore... why do they always ask me to work out the new bionic... people? My gosh! I always lose! I'm startin' to feel like an antique!

    • Jim: It's temporary paralysis, though - isn't it, Steve? I mean, I'm gonna walk again...
      Steve: You may walk again. And if you'll walk, you'll run--faster than any man has ever run before, including myself.
      Jim: Sorry, Steve. It's... uh... it's a bit much to take in all at once, you know... kinda comes over me in waves, you know... the pain of the realization... I worked so hard for these games... I don't think I can deal with this right now. I can't even think of a good punchline.

    • Jaime: Kate, you chose this. And they chose you. They chose you because of all the qualities that make you Kate.
      Kate: Well, what if the OSI's made a mistake?! What if I'm not the person that they think?! What if I'm not a Jaime Sommers?!
      Jaime: Hey! They don't want a clone of me, okay? They couldn't handle it. They've had too many problems with me over the years.

    • Castillian: Jim Castillian. That's with two "L"'s.
      Jim: James. Goldman. One "L".
      Castillian: Oh, you're Oscar's nephew. That's right - I heard you were in town. You're training for the games, right?
      Jim: Uh-huh. The 400 and the hurdles. Fastest thing on two legs - 'cept of course for Alice Grayson. I never did catch her in four years of college.
