      • Dr. Morgan: Listen, I swear to you, I did not know who Boothe was when I first sent you in. Why do you think I was so worried, when you went in there again?
        Sydney: I don't know! To protect your secrets?! Those people are liars! I'm not working with liars anymore!

      • Boothe: Death is an art... it's all about getting close, getting them to trust you...
        Sydney: Why are you doing this?
        Boothe: Because... it's my job. I am death, and these are my victims. They've made me a very wealthy man and so I only thought it was right that I should entertain them...

      • Sydney: Why would you want to die?
        Boothe: The past has finally got up with the present. That means there's no future. You'll understand...

      • Boothe: I suppose I should say 'thank you'.
        Sydney: For what?
        Boothe: Finding out all about you has kept me alive for another 24 hours...

      • Sydney: Yeah, everything's connected...
        Duncan: That's the balance of the universe...

      • Duncan: But you know maybe, it's kinda you have this past... and you know you're gonna have the future. You just don't have a present.

      • Sydney: But this Committee... they help people and I am helping them.
        Duncan: And that's your secret? Cool! So what are these guys like? Rosicrucians wanna-bes? Knights Templar? Y'know that?
        Sydney: What is that?
        Duncan: Secret societies. I mean, they've been around forever. They're always sort of creating history behind the scenes. It's very spooky stuff, Syd!
        Sydney: Yeah, I don't really know who they are, but you know, they understand what I can do... It's scary, Dunc!

      • Sydney: I work with this group of people called 'the Committee'.
        Duncan: What happened to the TelCal gig?
        Sydney: Umm, I'm... I am... moonlighting.

      • Duncan: What are you hiding, Syd? This is just not the usual you!
        Sydney: Dunc...
        Duncan: Tracking down strange guys in seedy hotels, weird people in and out of your place in the middle of the night. Why all the secrets, Syd? Secrets are lies!
        Sydney: I'm trying to protect you...
        Duncan: Fine, don't tell me. It's not like I'm your best friend or anything... So why share?

      • Nora Bloom: My love, my babies, they took you all away...
        Sydney: I was still there...
        Nora Bloom: Do you think I knew that? Do you think they told me that? They didn't tell me that, they didn't tell me, they didn't tell me...

      • Morgan: It's my fault... I've tried to find a way to get you out but... Man, oh man...
        Sydney: They're not gonna let me go, are they?
        Morgan: They only way you're gonna get out... is to take a sledgehammer and smash all your toys in here. That's the only way you're gonna get out. You give it up and you'll be free...
        Sydney: I'm free when I'm in there...

      • Sydney: Are you saying... five guys died in VR?
        Dr. Morgan: Six - that I know of.
        Sydney: Why am I still alive?
        Dr. Morgan: That's the big question, isn't it?

      • Dr. Morgan: Hey look, you got anything that's stronger than a tomato juice in here?

      • The Man: Y'know, he sounds familiar but I ain't sure...
        Duncan: Oh, you ain't sure. He ain't sure! Well, let me ask you maybe 20 bucks would jar your your memory a little bit?
        The Man: Maybe...
        Duncan: You got a 20, Syd?
        Sydney: Uh, I can give you 14...
        The Man: I'll take it! He ain't here. He said he'd be gone for a day or two but he's paid until the end of the week.

      • Duncan: Err, excuse me sir, are you the concierge?
        The Man: Hey, watch your mouth!

      • Duncan: Did you know that Van Gough painted some of his most famous works while living in a complete squalor?

      • Dr. Morgan: Look, you listen to me... this is between you and me. This is... no case, this is no Committee. I think you should not going in for a while. I think it's messin' with your own hardware... Do you know what I mean?
        Sydney: I think it's helping me remember...
        Dr. Morgan: I think it's playing with your brain... I think you should take a rest and I would make that an order, but I know that you wouldn't follow it...

      • Boothe: (to Sydney) Life is finally just about loving and dying. Which would you rather do with me?

      • Sydney: I guess you didn't even need me to come back at all.
        Boothe: I think you're the most intriguing person in this room... you keep coming to save me when there's nothing left to save...
        Sydney: Why would a man...
        Boothe: Why would a man like me, who has so much... wants to "cash in my chips" as many would say? That's the real question isn't it?

      • Sydney: Who are they?
        Boothe: You can call them my extended family. We've all become very close through my business.
        Sydney: What do you do?
        Boothe: I solve people's problems. An independent contractor of sorts...

      • Morgan: Look, Bloom... just don't let it get to you. Just do what they ask.
        Sydney: So I can end up just like you, right?

      • Morgan: Well, maybe you ought to rethink your position...
        Sydney: Oh, it's that what you've done? Just turn off your conscience so you can get through those assignments easier?

      • Sydney: Oh, do you follow all their rules?
        Morgan: Do you break them all?
        Sydney: If they're wrong, yes!

      • Sydney: Tell me where he is!
        Morgan: He's being watched and taken care of!
        Sydney: Well, that's not good enough!
        Morgan: Oh well, you know as much as I know. It's compartmentalised information. That means, it's on a need to know basis. I don't have all of the answers.

      • Dr. Morgan: I was just explaining to my class how powerful a home computer can be when in the proper hands. Would you care to... hmm... comment, Miss Bloom?

      • Boothe: Why are you here?
        Sydney: I don't remember...
        Boothe: To help me!
        Sydney: Yes...
        Boothe: That's what you said before...
        Sydney: To help you get back to work, and to st... st... st... to stop you from, from...
        Boothe: Killing myself? Why?
        Sydney: Because it's wrong, because it hurts people.
        Boothe: Is that what you think?
        Sydney: No, it's what I know...

      • Sydney: Ah, hmm... Where did you find all of these wonderful things?
        Boothe: My business takes me all over the world.
        Sydney: I would love to travel...
        Boothe: Well, you should always do what your heart desires, Sydney...

      • Boothe: Curious about my plans?
        Sydney: Worried.
        Boothe: Worried? Nobody worries about someone like me!
        Sydney: That's not true.
        Boothe: You're right Sydney, there are plenty of people... who should be worried about what my next... move would be.

      • Sydney: How did you get in here?
        Dr. Morgan: The same way anyone could do it: the door was unlocked.
        Sydney: No, it wasn't.
        Dr. Morgan: Oh, suit yourself...
