Jack Bristow: No, there's no time! The Taiwanese authorities will check this airstrip.
Sydney Bristow: I can't leave him behind. Hold the plane, I have to back to the lab.
Sydney Bristow: Sydney, wait!
Will Tippin: Who's Vaughn?

Will Tippin: I understand that, but you can't think of another way than this?
Jack Bristow: Yes, I can think of a number of other ways. But they all involve your burial.
Will Tippin: Is that your idea of a joke? You're morbid, Jack.

Will Tippin: [making a statement to the press for SD-6 to hear] My problem with heroin goes back three years. I'm embarrassed for myself and for my family when I tell you that most of what I've written in that time has been complete fiction including my most recent report about an organization that I called SD-6. These were desperate attempts...

Will Tippin: Hey, I'm sitting here. I'm on a couch. I'm alive
[sighs]
Will Tippin: . Is anybody listening to us right now?
Sydney Bristow: No. That lamp has a bug killer in it. So we're safe here.

"Alias: So It Begins (#1.2)" (2001)
Sydney Bristow: I lost my mind a little. I started imagining things.
Will Tippin: Whatever the hell you're talking about, maybe you're not imagining it. Syd, this is what I do. I might be able to find something that the police overlooked!
Sydney Bristow: Stop it! Please. I'm trying to move on here. I need your help to do that. Okay?

Will Tippin: We live in a world where people drive over other people's cats.

Jenny: You don't take me seriously, do you?
Will Tippin: No, I don't.

Will Tippin: Do you wanna eat your food?
Sydney Bristow: I want to finish with my clothes first so I could feel like I live here.

Sydney Bristow: Eating newspaper's a condition?
Will Tippin: Yeah, yeah. This is what I write about. This is how I make a living. And Lintback says my writing's too judgemental and I'm like, "Well, who cares? She's not gonna read it anyway, she's gonna swallow it."


"Alias: The Solution (#1.20)" (2002)
Will Tippin: I was kidnapped! The lives of the people I care about were threatened!
Disguised Voice: It's a bluff to scare you off the story.
Will Tippin: Well, you know what? It worked. I'm off it.

Will Tippin: This is an article I've written. Abby, you've got to do this for me. Make sure you keep it sealed, and don't mention this to anyone. And you got to promise me you're not going to open it, unless something happens to me. And if something happens to me, you got to publish it.

Jack Bristow: I work in Intelligence. That is all you need to know.
Will Tippin: So, the bank, Credit Delphine... that was all just a front cover?
Jack Bristow: You and I meet only when and where I decide. Never contact me by any means. Do not call, write, text, email or use any means of communication to contact me. I will contact you.
Will Tippin: When you say "intelligence" that means SD-6? Is that some off-the-books government agency...
Jack Bristow: We go after the source first. Everything else comes later. Are we clear on that?
Will Tippin: Does Sydney know? Jack? Is your daughter a part of this?
Jack Bristow: [after a short pause] No, she is not. Now... are we clear?
Will Tippin: Yes.
Jack Bristow: Do you have a way of contacting your source?
Will Tippin: Yeah, it's a transmitter in a pin. I found it in a box of stuff belonging to Eloise Kurtz.
Jack Bristow: [surprised] I planted that pin on Eloise Kurtz.
Will Tippin: Of course. That's why it's government issued. So, you hired her to play the nonexistent Kate Jones so she could lie to me about being involved with Danny. When she said too much... you had her killed.
Jack Bristow: I did not kill her, but I bear some responsibility for her death as do you for involving her in this.
Will Tippin: I don't understand why...
Jack Bristow: [cutting him off] Focus, Mr. Tippin! Do as I instruct or more people will die!
Will Tippin: All right, I'll contact Deep Throat and I'll insist on a meeting...
Jack Bristow: [cutting him off again] He told you about me! If you insist on a meeting, he will know that it's a set up. You will contact him and tell him you know that I was the one who kidnapped you that night and you are terrified. Then, tell him that you are back on the story. This meeting never took place.

[Francie jumps out of nowhere]
Francie Calfo: We have rats.
Sydney Bristow: What?
Will Tippin: All likely, possibly mice. Hi.
Sydney Bristow: Hi. Mice isn't better than rats.
Francie Calfo: There is no way that they are mice. They are rats and they are huge. The exterminators are coming between noon and three, you think you can be here?
Sydney Bristow: No, I have got work.
Francie Calfo: But I have to cater a lunch for thirty.
[Francie and Sydney stare at Will]
Will Tippin: I don't live here.
Sydney Bristow: Then why are you always here?
Francie Calfo: Yeah, it's not like you are paying any rent.
Will Tippin: What is this, attack on Will?


"Alias: The Telling (#2.22)" (2003)
Sydney Bristow: We received a file, a DNA string, of the person who was doubled.
Will Tippin: And?
Sydney Bristow: Your DNA didn't match and there was no Provacillium in your blood. You've been cleared.

Will Tippin: That file, the DNA string, was there a name attached to it?
Sydney Bristow: There was but we don't have any leads yet.
Will Tippin: What was the name?
Sydney Bristow: A.G. Doren.

Eric Weiss: Mr. Tippin, I'm Agent Weiss. We're all through here, I'm supposed to take you to where you'll be staying.
Will Tippin: Is there a computer I can use here? The name on this DNA file, A.G. Doren, I know that from somewhere. I just want to check it out.

Will Tippin: [whispering, leaving a message for Syd] Sydney, it's me. Listen, this is going to sound insane but I just found Provacillium in the bathroom and I think that... I think that... uh, okay, just think about it. I think that the double is Franc...


"Alias: Page 47 (#1.15)" (2002)
Will Tippin: Sydney tells me you're doing analysis for the bank.
Jack Bristow: Strategy. Investment strategy. Arvin made me an offer I couldn't refuse.
Emily Sloane: Oh, that sounds like my husband!

Will Tippin: [talking to the man in prison] I was kidnapped yesterday. By - I don't know who they were but I'm assuming they work for SD-6. David, they threatened me. They told me to drop the story.
[pause]
Will Tippin: David, I hate myself for letting you down, okay? But right now, I'm you. I'm exactly where you were before your wife was killed. Now, if I do what you suggest... David, they're going to kill my family... my friends. If you could go back, if you could change it, you wouldn't hesitate, would you?

Will Tippin: Jenny listen, I think you're great. You're smart and you're beautiful and I think we've had a lot of fun. But you and I, I just don't think that we...
[Jenny stops the car]
Jenny: Are you breaking up with me? I drive all the way out here with a broken radio by the way and you're... you're going to break up with me!

[Over dinner at Sloane's house Emily talks about an article Will wrote]
Emily Sloane: Anyway Maroma was one of these workers smuggled in from Mexico, their boss was a monster.
Will Tippin: He was the devil, he was literally the devil.
Arvin Sloane: How's that?
Emily Sloane: Well, if you spoke out against him, if you tried to leave, he'd have you killed.
[Jack stares at Sydney, she stares at Sloane]


"Alias: The Abduction (#2.10)" (2002)
Francie Calfo: Hey.
Will Tippin: What's up?
Sydney Bristow: Where you been?
Francie Calfo: Okay, listen. Every time I walk into the room lately, you guys hush up as if I'm interrupting something. I mean, am I?
Will Tippin: What? No.

Will Tippin: You ever have a dream where you're back at school and they won't let you graduate because you failed a test? I had that last night.
Michael Vaughn: Well, we don't screen for general knowledge. It's strictly a psych profile.
Will Tippin: So I can't fail but I can find out I'm a sociopath.

Will Tippin: I don't want to get ahead of myself here, but, um, if things go my way, what's next?
Michael Vaughn: Well, you're cleared to read classified documents and you get a government salary. Which isn't much.
Will Tippin: Compared to what I make now it's... much.

Sydney Bristow: By the way, I got Francie season tickets to The Hollywood Bowl for her birthday from the both of us.
Will Tippin: Oh, great, thank you. You know, she was right about what she said. We used to tell each other everything, now we don't. I can't tell her anything.
Sydney Bristow: I know. I hate it, too. But after Danny and what happened to you, I've accepted the fact that it's as a gesture of love to deceive the people I care about.


"Alias: The Coup (#1.14)" (2002)
Sydney Bristow: What is that?
Will Tippin: What?
Sydney Bristow: Is that a hickey?
Will Tippin: No. What? Oh my God, I have to go to a meeting.
Sydney Bristow: Wait, you know, I actually have cover-up.
Will Tippin: Do you have enough?
Sydney Bristow: Yeah, I've got enough.
Will Tippin: It's very embarrassing.
Sydney Bristow: The fact that I saw or just because it's there at all?
Will Tippin: No, look at me. I look like I am 15 years old.
Sydney Bristow: That's about the age of your intern.
Will Tippin: When I said 15, I knew you would say...
Sydney Bristow: Did Clinton administration teach you nothing?
Will Tippin: I am not married, I...
Sydney Bristow: Don't start defending your thing with Jenny. She's not in your league and you know it.
Will Tippin: Who's in my league? What league? Show me a league and I'll buy a ticket, I'll go to the meetings and I will try and find those people. Where are they?

Francie Calfo: OK, the next time Charlie and I go to breakfast with our parents remind me that mimosas are rewoven.
Sydney Bristow: Oh, God, today was a big branch.
Will Tippin: They didn't get along?
Francie Calfo: Oh, we wish. They got along so well they are going on a vacation together.
Sydney Bristow: Ew.
Francie Calfo: Yeah.
Will Tippin: What's wrong with that? That's nice.
Francie Calfo: That is a making of a disaster. They are going without us and they are going to plan a whole wedding.

Sydney Bristow: Will, I don't know what to do.
Will Tippin: Are you sure it's a same Charlie?
Sydney Bristow: Yes. Francie is gonna be devastated.
Will Tippin: It's just... this just doesn't make any sense. I mean, I don't... I don't understand. I mean, who the hell lives a double life like this?
Sydney Bristow: [reassuring] There are people.
Will Tippin: Yeah, I guess.
Sydney Bristow: How am I gonna tell her?
Will Tippin: OK, let me make you a suggestion. Make sure she is sitting down and make sure she is very drunk. Yeah, you gotta make her sloshed because this is really gonna hurt.

Sydney Bristow: How many more hickeys in the air?
Will Tippin: Shut up.
Sydney Bristow: Just asking.


"Alias: Passage: Part 1 (#2.8)" (2002)
Michael Vaughn: I didn't think Devlin, my superior, would mind me having you research this, but he did and he ordered me to let you go.
Will Tippin: Hold on. Wait a second. There's something here. Okay, look, I'll narrow the test scores down to a small group of kids. Now Devlin won't be able to deny the value of that.
Michael Vaughn: He thinks since you're a journalist, since you've been trained to report what you know, that you're a security risk.

Will Tippin: [to Vaughn] Look, except for you, Sydney, and Jack, everybody I know - and a lot of people I don't - they think I'm a lying junkie, okay? And helping you, doing something for the CIA, it felt like a chance to do something that mattered again, you know? Like, I don't know, maybe I went through all this crap for a reason.

Will Tippin: Nothing's wrong?
[she shakes her head negatively]
Will Tippin: Syd, if we'd just met I'd know something's wrong


"Alias: Trust Me (#2.2)" (2002)
Francie Calfo: Will, what happened to your face?
Will Tippin: You know the one thing they don't tell you about doing community service? Sunblock.

Francie Calfo: It's just going to take me six months to get a legitimate liquor license!
Will Tippin: So you're hanging out with the Gambino crime family and you're giving me grief about doing drugs?

Francie Calfo: I just need a liquor license.
Will Tippin: No, no, no, what you need is someone who knows how the system works. Someone who can help you navigate. What you need is me. You know, former drug addict reporter... and sometimes lobster impersonator.


"Alias: Salvation (#2.6)" (2002)
Will Tippin: Oh, I got my, uh, thirty days sobriety chip. Even though I was ever drug addict, I'm kind of proud.

Sydney Bristow: You're selling your car?
Will Tippin: Yeah, well, it's either that or I quit paying my student loans. I can't afford to have bad credit and a criminal record.

Michael Vaughn: Look, I know this will drive you insane, but we can't employ you because you have a criminal record.
Will Tippin: I have a criminal record because of a drug habit I never had.


"Alias: There's Only One Sydney Bristow (#5.12)" (2006)
Sydney: I'm not going to let anything happen to you.
Will: I know that. Wait, what did you think I was asking?
Sydney: I was just being supportive in case you thought you might...
Will: Die?
Sydney: It's not important. What were you asking?
Will: I was asking you to be my best man.
Sydney: Really?
Will: Yeah... Before I realized you have so little faith in me. You thought I was going to die?
Sydney: No! . . You want me to be your best man?
Will: Well I did. Now I'm not so sure.
Sydney: How would that work exactly? I mean, would I wear a tux?
Will: You don't have to worry about it. Because you're not invited.

Marshall Flinkman: Well, it's a sub-derma device placed just below the skull at the base of the brain stem. I've never seen one this small before. It's like they patched a radio receiver to a powerful micro-charger.
Will: [Sydney, Jack, and Sloan share worried looks] So what-what does that mean?
Marshall Flinkman: It means that they-they put a bomb in your head.
Will: What?
Marshall Flinkman: I know, I know. Um... but there's good news. It looks like the charge is small enough that the blast will be localized.
Will: Waitwaitwait - So it might not kill me?
Marshall Flinkman: No. It will definitely kill you. There just won't be any collateral damage.
Sydney: Marshall. How do we get it out of him?
Marshall Flinkman: Well, um, we could perform a surgical procedure, but I'm worried there's a gyroscopic fail-safe. I mean, there is a very real chance that if we try to remove it, uh... Will's head could explode.
Jack Bristow: Get medical in here. I want a full extraction scenario.
Will: What? No! Didn't you hear what he said about the exploding?
Sydney: Will... Calm down.
Will: Sydney, how am I supposed to calm down when there's a bomb in my head?

Will: Yes, I've been tortured and I've been kidnapped, several times actually. But most likely none of that would've happened if I hadn't' helped a clumsy girl pick up her books freshman year in bio class. But it's not your fault. You can't blame yourself for the evils of the world. Look, since I've known you I've seen a lot of horrible things. There are people out there, that are capable of more cruelty and more hatred, than I even thought possible. But I still sleep well at night. You know why? Because I know that you're out there fighting against them. Sydney, you save the world every day and you never ask for anything in return. I think I speak for everybody who loves you, when I say; Thank you for watching over us.
Sydney: But if you hadn't met me you'd have a regular life.
Will: Who wants it? I wouldn't trade you for anything. I know a lot of regular people who live regular lives. But there's only one Sydney Bristow.
[last lines]


"Alias: Mea Culpa (#1.9)" (2001)
Will Tippin: Okay, okay, whatever, it sucks, all right? But it's why I wanted to become a reporter. I saw this when I was a kid and I loved it. And I was just like, I don't know, all the quick...
Francie Calfo: Repartee.
Will Tippin: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I mean, it just looked fun. You know, being a reporter looked fun. But it's not. It's not fun. It's a pain in the ass.

Disguised Voice: [on the phone] You have questions about Kate Jones. How far are you willing to go, Mr. Tippin? I need to hear the words "I'm ready."
Will Tippin: Why? Why, could my life be in danger?
Disguised Voice: Say the words.
Will Tippin: Yeah, I'm in. I'm ready.

Francie Calfo: Can you not be reporter for two minutes?
Will Tippin: I am asking because I care. This thing is weird... something like this happening to you. First it's Danny and now it's...
Francie Calfo: Leave her alone or I'm going to kick your ass, I'm not kidding.


"Alias: Spirit (#1.10)" (2001)
Sydney Bristow: Look, to you, my job might seem pointless and stupid but it's not. It's far from pointless and if you knew what I dealt with every day, you might even thank me for doing my job so well!
Will Tippin: [confused] What the hell are you talking about?
Sydney Bristow: Nothing. I'm going to work. I'll see you guys.

[referring to Francie]
Will Tippin: Iron Chef in there needs me.

Sydney Bristow: I'm sorry I was snippy with you about my job.
Will Tippin: Oh, no. It's your job, you know. You are allowed to be.
Sydney Bristow: I was a jerk. Sorry I was a jerk.


"Alias: Time Will Tell (#1.8)" (2001)
Will Tippin: What's the paper on?
Sydney Bristow: It's redo. Professor said it didn't have any souls. I'm writing the paper with a soul. It's got a lot of soul.

Will Tippin: [reading from a book] "Laura, all my love forever and a day. Jack." That's not, like, your dad Jack, is it?
Sydney Bristow: Yeah.
Will Tippin: Wow. That's uncharacteristically sweet of him.
Sydney Bristow: I know. He actually has a heart, which I'm learning little by little.

June Litvack: And on the eve of your first front-page story, you suddenly get cold feet.
Will Tippin: What are you saying? What are you saying? I made this whole thing up? Look, I swear to God, the only reason I didn't want this story to run is 'cause I don't want to hurt Sydney Bristow. That's it.
June Litvack: You're a talented writer, Will. But I promise you, if anything like this ever happens again, the only thing you'll be inventing are facts on your own resume.


"Alias: Masquerade (#1.18)" (2002)
Francie Calfo: Well, why is there a return ticket from Italy in her pocket?
Will Tippin: Probably from another trip.
Francie Calfo: It's dated for last week.
Will Tippin: Why wouldn't she tell us about a trip to Italy?

Sydney Bristow: Hey guys.
Will Tippin: Hey.
Francie Calfo: Oh, you still live here?


"Alias: The Box: Part 2 (#1.13)" (2002)
Will Tippin: Being reporter sucks, I just established that.
Francie Calfo: Okay.
Will Tippin: Hi.
Francie Calfo: Hey, what have you been drinking?
Will Tippin: Ahh, I don't know. It was something with a little horse on a label. Or a dog, I don't know. Some mythical creature condemned to live in a bottle for the rest of eternity. Doghorse, it's a doghorse. Did I mention that my life sucks? Did I mention that?

Will Tippin: [holding a black wig] I thought I looked like Gabe Kaplan.
Kelly McNeil: Who's that?
Will Tippin: Doesn't matter.


"Alias: The Indicator (#2.5)" (2002)
Sydney Bristow: Sixth grade was an awkward phase for me.
Will Tippin: Oh, come on. You, awkward?
Sydney Bristow: Yeah. Big teeth and little eyes. And I always was a foot taller than everyone else so I sort of hunched over.

Will Tippin: When I was in sixth grade, I was sort of anonymous. You know, you had the smart kid, and the funny kid, and the good athlete. And I was just Will.


"Alias: Rendezvous (#1.21)" (2002)
Jack Bristow: You're going to tell your contact you want a meeting. A meeting to take place at your contact's discretion.
Will Tippin: Why would he lead me to you knowing that you'd want to flush him out?
Jack Bristow: He only told you my name so you would realize that my threat to you was a bluff. That I would never hurt Sydney, even if you continue your investigation. He didn't expect you'd have the guts to contact me.
Will Tippin: Oh, well, I'll assume that's a compliment.

Will Tippin: [to Sydney ans Jack] Who the hell are you people?


"Alias: Almost Thirty Years (#1.22)" (2002)
Will: [to Suit and Glasses] One in five, you little bitch! ONE IN FIVE!

Sydney: I know that you have Questions, and... uhh... I... Look I would like to answer them, but I can't. I am so afraid that you know anything about me at all.
Will: I only went after this story because of Danny. You didn't have any answers as to who killed the man that you loved, and I just couldn't stand that. It broke my heart. I wanted to help. But you got to know this - I'm not going to ask you a thing. I am not going to ask anyone anything. You never have to worry about that.
Sydney: You promise me, because Danny just left a message on the machine...
Will: Syd, I promise you. Never. I was thinking on the flight back what your life's like, what you have to go through, what you had to keep from your friends, how hard that must be. Syd... I don't love you because of what you do or what you don't do. I just love you.
Sydney: Thank you.
Will: Thank you! You saved my life.


"Alias: Second Double (#2.21)" (2003)
Will Tippin: What was that eye scan?
Sydney Bristow: It's a test. It analyzes your retina. Someone who's been doubled develops proteins. They're like markers. They found proteins.

Will Tippin: Syd, I love you. I can't... I can't trust you. Not anymore. Meeting you... meeting you destroyed my life,


"Alias: Firebomb (#2.16)" (2003)
Will Tippin: But in the hell-hath-no-fury department, I figure this woman would pay us to mess with her ex.

Michael Vaughn: No suit, huh?
Will Tippin: It's been a while since I tried it on, or worked out apparently. So it makes me overwhelmed and fat.


"Alias: Parity (#1.3)" (2001)
Will Tippin: I better get going before I get fired, which is inevitable.

Will Tippin: [talking to his editor] Don't make me regret working for people in their fifties... uh, forties.


"Alias: Dead Drop (#2.4)" (2002)
Will Tippin: Well, I've got four weeks left of community service and then I'm done. Hey, um, you remember last week when I cooperated and let the CIA hypnotize me?
Sydney Bristow: Yeah.
Will Tippin: What happened with that? I mean, was I helpful at all? And I'm only asking because about five minutes ago I was doing pretty well as a reporter, you know, and now I'm a dishwasher living in denial. That's all.
Sydney Bristow: The information you provided was huge.
[Sydney's pager goes off]
Will Tippin: Good guys or bad guys?
Sydney Bristow: Neither. My father.

Rebecca Martinez: I know who you are, Will Tippin. I read your articles. The reporter with the big imagination who fell in love with the heroin chic lifestyle.
Will Tippin: Yeah. Yeah, that's me.
Rebecca Martinez: My theory? I don't think you ever really were a drug addict.


"Alias: The Counteragent (#2.7)" (2002)
Will Tippin: Well, how would you explain a question like this, then? Why can rainbows be seen only when the sun is behind the observer?
Henry Fields: This wasn't in the test I sent to ETS. I design the questions, I proof the test booklets they print up, and then when they send the final corrected copies, I put them on file.
Will Tippin: About how many first graders took this test?
Henry Fields: They administered this in thirty-three states. That's over five million children.


"Alias: A Dark Turn (#2.17)" (2003)
Michael Vaughn: Well, 'cause it's common, you know, to dream about work, have anxiety over keeping it secret. Especially in the beginning.
Will Tippin: Really.
Michael Vaughn: Goes away though.
Will Tippin: What, the excitement?
