Nikita: Yes.
Operations: You can put that down, if you like.
Operations: [after a while] There's a briefing scheduled for tomorrow morning.
Nikita: Oh, yes, I know.

Operations: How the life you had before the Section? That of the living out on the streets and eating of the garbage cans?
Nikita: [shouting] I've paid for your bloody diplomat classes a hundred times over!

Operations: You have my word.
Nikita: Good. Good. And you have mine. I will be taking steps to protect myself. So, if you double-cross me, the last thing on this Earth that you want, will happen. I will set-up personally, do you understand?
Operations: [laughing] Ahh, we've trained you well, Nikita.
Nikita: [as she opens the door] I'm tired.

Operations: That subject is closed, Nikita. Just keep him alive. Meet me after the mission, I said true that you'll free of the Section forever. And now, we have a briefing.

Seymour Birkoff: Who is the hitter?
Operations: Rogue's newcomer named Griffin. So new we don't have a physical description.

Madeline: Did it work?
Operations: For a while. Eventually, we had to put one of them to sleep.

Operations: You of all people aren't going to warn me against playing God?
Madeline: No. Provided we do a decent job of it. God doesn't make clumsy mistakes.
Operations: Nonsense. Scientists say 90% of the species ever created on this planet are now extinct. That's a ten percent success rate. Ours are much higher than that. End of discussion.
