Nikita: What you are talking about? I just spoke with her.
Madeline: It doesn't take long.
Nikita: But I hadn't made my decision yet.
Madeline: It wasn't your decision.
Nikita: What does it mean?

Michael Samuelle: Maybe it's time you learned.

Nikita: How is this going to work?
Michael Samuelle: We can be careful, take things slowly.

Nikita: To become a better operative.
Jurgen: Thought you didn't like games.
Nikita: I'm here because I don't wanna die.
Jurgen: Good. You may just live, if you obey one simple rule... don't tell me anymore lies.
Nikita: [ironically] Truth, all truth and nothing but?
Jurgen: That's right.
Nikita: I'm not sure that's possible in Section.
Jurgen: No need to worry about the Section.
Jurgen: [darker] You need to worry about *me*.

Nikita: I came back for *you*. For us to be together.
Michael Samuelle: This gonna be difficult now. We are to be careful.
Nikita: I'm *tired* of being careful.

Nikita: [annoyed] That's it?
Operations: Yes, that's it.
Nikita: "He'll be missed".
[after a while]
Nikita: I don't care about the odds. I'll go back for him. I'm sure the others will too.
Operations: I wish I could send you.

Nikita: [upset, kicking Birkoff's chair] What's that crap about overnight analysis and ten to one odds?
Seymour Birkoff: I... did a feasibility study, isolated key factors, run a sim...
Nikita: This is Michael we're talking about. Couldn't you fudge with the sim, maybe... rev the odds just a little?
Seymour Birkoff: I did. Objectively, it's a hundred to one against bringing out, maybe a hundred and fifty. I'm sorry, Nikita. Michael is on his own.

Nikita: Cosmetics?
Madeline: That's right. Lipsticks, glosses, shadows, lotions, the entire line. This describes their properties in detail, know it by the time the plane lands. They may be expecting a rescue attempt, but no by two women selling makeup.


"La Femme Nikita: Escape (#1.8)" (1997)
Nikita: Does the Section ever test its operatives? Tempt them, for example?
Walter: You've got to think of the Section as a living organism, and like any living organism, it will do whatever it has to survive. Be careful.

[last lines]
Operations: Prepare a plan and a shadow team. Will need a psychological profile on all the major players including...
[Nikita comes on angrily, and slams some pieces of equipment on the briefing desk]

Nikita: Cancel me, because I'd rather be dead than watched like an animal in the zoo!
Operations: Are you sure about that?
Nikita: I'm very sure.
[leaves]
Operations: Cancel surveillance on Nikita, at least for the time being. Now, where were we?

Madeline: [about Michael] Is it his life you want to know about? Or his heart?
Nikita: Does he even have a heart?
Madeline: Michael loved once. Very deeply.
Nikita: Simone.
Madeline: Some men can only love once.


"La Femme Nikita: Simone (#1.3)" (1997)

Nikita: [after long pause] I don't listen to music.
Errol Sparks: Why not?
Nikita: Music evokes emotion.
Errol Sparks: Emotion spawns genius.
Nikita: Emotion blurs judgement.

Michael Samuelle: [to Birkoff] What do you got?
