Alias Quotes

Agent Jack Bristow: Shepard killed Danny. I'm assuming you know that.
Sydney: If I hadn't, thank you for breaking it to me so gently.

TV Show: Alias
Arvin Sloane: What guarantee do I have that this isn't some form of entrapment?
NSC Director Robert Lindsey: Because I know what you're up to, Mr. Sloane. I can see your big picture. I know your endgame. I even have proof.

TV Show: Alias
Dr. Judy Barnett: Well, I'm sorry, but I am not in the habit of helping a father manipulate his daughter. No matter how good his intentions may be.
Jack Bristow: I see. And is your opinion here based on what's best for Sydney, or for the agency? Because the fact is if Sydney doesn't talk to Laura, the CIA learns nothing.
Dr. Judy Barnett: So you still think of her as Laura, even though that was her alias.

Georgette Sinclair: There I was alone in Denver, not accomplishing a thing. So I decided to do something with my life.
Hannibal Heyes: In Tombstone?
Jed 'Kid' Curry: That's kind of a wide-open town, George.
Georgette Sinclair: I'm going to work in the Birdcage Saloon!
Jed 'Kid' Curry: George, you know how most saloon girls end up.
Georgette Sinclair: Fellas, I'm not going to Tombstone to work as a saloon girl... I'm going to become a chanteuse.
Jed 'Kid' Curry: A what?
Hannibal Heyes: [laughs] I don't know, Kid, but it don't sound good.

TV Show: Alias
Leslie O'Hara: [while riding in a stagecoach] Oh, we came to look at the wild West.
Hannibal Heyes: I hate to disappoint you, but it's not like that any more. You couldn't be safer in your own backyard.
Jed 'Kid' Curry: I wouldn't say that Joshua. One morning three weeks ago, we were on a stage that was held up. By a band of very desperate men.
Margaret Chapman: You mean that could happen to us?
Hannibal Heyes: It could happen to you but not to us. Not twice in three weeks. [gunshots are fired, the stage is robbed]

TV Show: Alias
Vaughn: [Syd and Vaughn are about to approach a source for information] How do you wanna play this?
Sydney: You wanna be rough, or you want me to be rough?
Vaughn: You're always rough.
Sydney: No, I'm not.
Vaughn: Yes, you are.
Sydney: That's not true!
Vaughn: Yes, it is.
Sydney: Are you talking about at home, or on Ops?
Vaughn: Both. Hey, I'm not complaining!
Sydney: If I'm rough, it's because you like me to... [pauses]
Sydney: Are we on coms?
Agent Jack Bristow: Yes, you're both on coms right now.

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: He practically apologized.
Vaughn: Sloane did?
Sydney: For thinking maybe I'd mailed him the wrong guy. Imagine that.

TV Show: Alias
Danny: You've never gotten a D.
Sydney: I've gotten a D!
Danny: When?
Sydney: High school Home-Ec. Remember that --
Danny: Yeah. What did you do? Embroidered something on a t-shirt.
Sydney: Sweatshirt. That was the assignment.
Danny: It was obscene, right? About the teacher.
Sydney: He was a sexist pig. I deserved a scholarship for that. This time I deserve a D.

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: Those men died for no reason.
Vaughn: No, those men died for their country.

Suit & Glasses: Who are you working for? I'll not ask you again.
Sydney: Okay. Get a pen. Write this down. E M E T I B. You got that?
Suit & Glasses: Yes.
Sydney: Okay. Now reverse it.
[Suit & Glasses rewrites, frowns, stares back at Sydney]
Sydney: I've got bad news for you, man. I'm your worst enemy. I've got nothing to lose.
Suit & Glasses: That's not exactly true. You have teeth. Okay. Let's try one more time. Who do you work for?
[Sydney doesn't respond. Interrogator shoves some pliers into her mouth.]
Sydney: Augh... Augh..
[Interrogator removes pliers, listens for what she has to say.]
Sydney: I just want to say... start with the teeth in the back. If you don't mind.

TV Show: Alias
Danny: I'm calling because I'm planning on asking Sydney to marry me and... I was hoping to get your approval.
Jack: Danny, let me ask you a question.
Danny: Sure.
Jack: How well do you know my daughter?
Danny: Um, we've been dating for two years...
Jack: Because if you feel the need to ask me about this scenario, I have a sense you don't know Sydney at all.
Danny: Sir, I love your daughter and I want to marry her. That's why I'm calling.
Jack: First of all, Danny, the truth is this is just a courtesy call. Like when you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's all right with you." What you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."
Danny: Mr. Bristow,...
Jack: Sydney doesn't give a damn what my opinion is. What interests me is that you do.
Danny: It's just a custom to call the father, that's all this is...
Jack: Well, then, I'll tell you what. I may become your father-in-law, that's just fine. But I will not be used as part of a charming little anecdote you tell your friends at cocktail parties so they can see what a quaint, old-fashioned guy Danny really is. Are we clear?
Danny: Yes, sir...
Jack: Good. Then welcome to the family.

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: [After Danny has been murdered] What did you do?
Sloane: I might ask you the same question. Security section became aware of the breach and performed their function. You're familiar with the codes of conduct, Agent Bristow. You knew these codes apply to you, even if you put to risk the lives of every man and woman working in the agency.
Sydney: Danny wasn't a risk... he was... he was just a man. He was... he was a doctor, he was just...
Sloane: You listen to me. Information about this agency must be treated like a virus. There is only one response to a virus, and that response is containment. You put us in a compromised situation, and even though I despise the countermeasure, we have...
Sydney: Stop saying "we." Stop talking about the agency. You killed the man I love!
Sloane: No, Agent Bristow. You did.

TV Show: Alias
Vaughn: They're reviewing your statement. You wrote a lot.
Sydney: I know.
Vaughn: I mean, it's like Tolstoy long. Devlin says it could take weeks to verify. But I know we could use another double agent in SD-6, so we'll be in contact. I'm going to get you a ride out of here, keep you concealed. Why are you shaking your head?
Sydney: Because you said another.
Vaughn: So?
Sydney: So if you really had one already you most likely wouldn't tell me until I was authenticated.
Vaughn: Unless I had an instinct about you.
Sydney: My bet is you don't...have another double.
Vaughn: We might.
Sydney: But you want me to believe that you do, so that on the off chance that I'm actually looking to be a triple agent I'll report back that there's an existing mole to upset the balance of my agency.
Vaughn: I'm not trying to play you.
Sydney: Yeah, we'll see.

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: You said you wanted to talk about the plan. I'm giving you the plan.
Vaughn: It's not your job to give me the plan. I'm giving you the plan. Tomorrow's your first day back at SD-6. Now, nothing should change. When you get your assignment, you'll detail your mission on a paper bag. [picks one up, showing her] Bag. Then you'll call this number. Memorize it. After three tones, press the appropriate digit -- one through six. Each corresponds to a trash can in a specific location. Now we'll review your information, create a countermission, and we'll contact you posing as a wrong number: Joey's Pizza. Any questions so far?
Sydney: Yeah. Can you show me what a bag looks like again?

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: Since I've known the truth about you, I've asked myself questions. Thousands of questions. But this one I have to ask you now. When Danny was killed... Dad... did you know? Did you know that's what they were going to do?
Jack: Yes. [Sydney slaps him]
Sydney: Don't you ever speak to me again.

TV Show: Alias
Weiss: Your girlfriend's name is Alice.
Vaughn: Would you shut up.
Weiss: Hey, just checking.
Vaughn: Get out of my office.

TV Show: Alias
Weiss: Balls of steel. That's what I'm going to call you from now on. Hey, have you met Balls of Steel?

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: We've got a red wire, a yellow, a blue, a blue-white, there's a white wire, a yellow-red, an orange-red, a black, a white-black, an orange, a purple, a purple-white, a green, a green-white, a red-white, a light-blue --
Marshall: [On the phone] Okay, a blue-white wire.
Sydney: Okay, cutting the blue-white wire! Okay!
Marshall: Oh, hold the phone!

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: I don't want it to be like that anymore, I'm just sick of it. I mean, I always had this feeling that maybe someday, I don't know, my dad and I would connect. That things could start to get better.
Francie: Well, you know my opinion of your dad.
Sydney: I know.
Francie: But listen. If you can find it in your heart to forgive him for being the kind of guy he's been all your life, which I would find impossible and could never do, then you should make a real effort.

TV Show: Alias
Francie: Hey, how was your trip?
Sydney: Oh. Not good. I was working with these people who -- they were terminated.
Francie: Oh, man. The economy sucks.

TV Show: Alias
Will: Hi, um, I don't know if I'm talking to the right person, but I need to borrow a million bucks. The Olsen twins went public, and I'm looking to invest.
Sydney: You'll need some collateral. I don't think you've got any.
Will: Well, have you seen my aqua blue Chevy?
Sydney: You mean, with the hula girl on the dash? Yes, sadly, we've seen that.

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: Are you insane? Calling me in here for a social event? SD-6 has a division whose sole responsibility it is to track their agents and report back suspect activity. "Your girl" is risking her life, and you yours, every time we lay eyes on each other. So, do me a favor: don't be so friendly.
Lambert: I-I just love your spirit.
Sydney: That's heartening. Are we done here?
Lambert: I hate to pull rank, but time is a factor here.
Sydney: Time is a factor here. You know how much time? Seven years. That's how long I worked for SD-6 before I found out who they really are. And now that I know, my days of blindly following orders are over.
Lambert: Who the hell do you think you're talking to?
Sidney: I know exactly who I'm talking to. Tell Devlin if Agent Vaughn isn't on the other end of this earpiece when I turn it on, the C.I.A. gets nothing.
Lambert: Vaughn is a junior officer.
Sydney: Then promote him.

TV Show: Alias
Anna Espinosa: [to Sydney] I heard about your fiancé. Very sad. I thought perhaps it was a security execution sanctioned by your employers. Maybe you said something in your sleep you shouldn't have. But then why would you be here in service for the men that killed your true love?

TV Show: Alias
Sloane: Marshall couldn't open the lock box.
Marshall: Uh, in my defense, it was rigged with a brand-new tech, an internal device that will destroy anything inside if opened without the key --
Sloane: Marshall, would you please go back to work?
Marshall: Just to clarify, I'm not being fired?
Sloane: 'Back to work' means not fired.

TV Show: Alias
Vaughn: Give them the correct number, Sydney! And that's an order.
Sydney: An order? We need to have a long talk when I get back to Los Angeles.

Francie: He has a law review in an hour.
Sydney: You want to follow him.
Francie: So much, I cannot even tell you.
Sydney: I think spying on your boyfriend is generally regarded in a relationship as bad precedent.
Francie: What if he's cheating on me?
[Scene change, we see Sydney and Francie spying on Charlie]
Francie: You're a really good friend, you know that?
Sydney: Yes, I do.
Francie: Hey, there he is. Start the car. Start the car.
Sydney: Wait until he's a block away.
Francie: Look at you getting all into it.
Sydney: Everyone knows you wait.
Francie: I don't know you wait.
Sydney: You wait.

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: Did you have a fight with your wife?
Vaughn: What wife? I have no wife.
Sydney: No? There was a picture in your office. You and that woman. I thought you were married.
Vaughn: She and I are not remotely -- you thought I was married this whole time?
Sydney: I guess so. What's the big deal?
Vaughn: Nothing.

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: I'm sorry to call you. I just didn't know who else to call. My father and I were supposed to have dinner tonight for the first time since I was a kid. I can't even remember the last time. He just didn't show. He said he had work. And he didn't have work. This isn't just about my dad. When I was in Morocco the man who died was a friend of mine. He was a good man! Who thought he was fighting for the right side, that he was working for the CIA. He was lied to and now he's dead. I had his blood on my hands!
Vaughn: Sydney --
Sydney: I feel like I'm losing my mind, like I don't even know who I am anymore, or what I'm doing, or why I'm doing it.
Vaughn: You just threw your beeper in the Pacific.
Sydney: I know.
Vaughn: When you first walked into my office with that stupid Bozo hair, I thought you were crazy. I thought you might actually be a crazy person. But I watched you, and I read your statement, and I've seen... I've seen how you think, I've seen how you work, I've seen how you are in this job. In this job, you see darkness. You see the worst in people and though the jobs are different and the missions change, and the enemies have a thousand names, the one crucial thing, the one real responsibility you have is to not let your rage, and your resentment, and your disgust, darken you. When you're at your absolute lowest, at your most depressed, just remember that you can always -- you know. You got my number.

TV Show: Alias
Sydney: I don't know how much longer I can do this. Sit in these meetings with Sloane. Look at him as if I don't despise him, as if I don't want to leap across the table and use the skills I've learned, against him.
