"Alias: Legacy (#3.21)" (2004)
Arvin Sloane: I don't want to hurt you.
Nadia Santos: Then why are you doing this?
Arvin Sloane: When Abraham was asked to take his only child, Isaac, and offer him up to God, he didn't hesitate. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife, and it was only then, that the angel came. But Abraham had to be willing to make this unbearable choice.
Nadia Santos: I understand.
Arvin Sloane: You do?
Nadia Santos: You're a man of faith.
Arvin Sloane: Oh, my child. My child.
[Nadia opens her restraints with a pen and stabs Sloane with the needle he used on her]
Nadia Santos: How do you like it?

Arvin Sloane: What you did yesterday, destroying all the fluid like that: I want you to know I was not angry with you. I was proud of your courage.
Nadia Santos: Every Sunday at the orphanage in San Telmo, they made us dress up in our finest clothes. They would have us stand in line for hours waiting to be chosen by families. I wouldn't do it. I'd make myself filthy and always frown. I didn't want to be chosen, because I knew... I knew that somewhere my dad was still looking for me. And one day he'd come to take me away from that place... If I had known it was you I was waiting for, I would have cleaned up.

Arvin Sloane: You're gonna be okay. I promise.
Nadia Santos: No, I won't. I guess the angel isn't coming.

Sydney Bristow: [about Sloane] It's okay. You're safe. He will never hurt you again.
Nadia Santos: He protected me.

Arvin Sloane: Jack? I'm afraid so.

Jack Bristow: How sad for you.

[Jack is conducting Nadia's psych evaluation and giving her hypothetical scenarios]
Jack Bristow: While tapping a phone line of a target in New Delhi, you're spotted by the enemy. Your partner tells you to continue with the mission objective while he neutralizes the target. Do you obey him or fight back?
Nadia Santos: Is the phone system the new PBX Matrix?
Jack Bristow: [impatiently] Just answer the question, please.
Nadia Santos: [pause] Why is my partner a man?
Jack Bristow: [stiffly] The sex of your partner is irrelevant.
Nadia Santos: Oh. No, I would not obey. I'd help her fight him off, then she and I could finish the job together.


"Alias: Authorized Personnel Only: Part 2 (#4.2)" (2005)
Eric Weiss: [Sydney and Weiss are at Sydney's house] I just... I just don't see it, you're working in a bank? What kind of a job is that? Cashing checks, making change, "excuse me, next in line please".
Sydney Bristow: I'm a loans officer, I travel, service accounts.
Eric Weiss: Wait a minute, that cover job you had for SD-6?
Sydney Bristow: I happen to be good at it.
Eric Weiss: Great! That's stimulating stuff, watching over someone else's money, Syd come on seriously since you left the spy business you're a bore!
Sydney Bristow: It's an adjustment it's all... are you sure you don't want to stay for dinner?
Eric Weiss: I'd love to, but I've got to go save the world, see you.

Eric Weiss: How are you?
Nadia Santos: Good
[turns to Sydney]

Sydney Bristow: Not at all Nadia, this is Eric he was just leaving.
Eric Weiss: No, I can stay...
[Sydney waves Weiss good bye]
Eric Weiss: or go, nice to meet you.

Nadia Santos: I was hoping we could talk about our mother.
Sydney Bristow: Did you bring your passport?

Nadia Santos: And you have no idea who was responsible? Who killed her?
Sydney Bristow: [after a pause] No.
Nadia Santos: I swear... somehow I will find out who did this to our mother, and I will kill him.


"Alias: Detente (#4.7)" (2005)
Arvin Sloane: Sydney, we didn't expect you back so soon... So Russia was a success?
Sydney Bristow: Yeah, there's a report waiting for you in the office.
Nadia Santos: Sydney, he just dropped by, I didn't realize.
Sydney Bristow: Get Out.
Arvin Sloane: Very Well... I'll walk myself to the door. I'll see you both tomorrow.
Nadia Santos: OK... He came by wanting to talk; he says he wants a fresh start to get to know me.
Sydney Bristow: You think that's all he wants; a little father daughter bonding?
Nadia Santos: I know how you feel about him.
Sydney Bristow: You can't possibly.
Nadia Santos: I don't understand, you work with him at APO.
Sydney Bristow: I accepted the job so I can watch him. Don't delude yourself, Nadia, into thinking you can trust that man. Do that and you will end up hating yourself for it.
Nadia Santos: He's my father.
Sydney Bristow: If you knew what he's done...
Nadia Santos: Sydney, I know, I know what he did to you. What he took from you, your best friend, your fiance...
Sydney Bristow: And knowing that, you still let him into my home?

Nadia Santos: Wait a minute... I hate that perfume. It has a weird patrulli smell.
Sydney Bristow: See the end of the bed, the sling backs.
Nadia Santos: Champagne bottles on the nightstand.
Sydney Bristow: Check out the magazines.
Nadia Santos: Designer purse.
Sydney Bristow: It's a shot.
Eric Weiss: What's a shot, what are you talking about?
Nadia Santos: I know where to get what we need.
Eric Weiss: What? Where is she going?
Michael Vaughn: You mind filling us in?
Sydney Bristow: Tambor's got a girlfriend, she's staying with him. She's our way in.

Arvin Sloane: Just so we don't have these misunderstandings again, let me be clear to both of you. Questioning my authority, whether it's in this office or in the field; is unacceptable.
Sydney Bristow: Unacceptable... Coming from you that's almost funny
Nadia Santos: Sydney, please.
Sydney Bristow: Do you really want to engage in a conversation about what is and what is not acceptable? Every day I work here, I see your face in briefings; I hear your voice in my ear during missions. And do you want to know what it's like? It makes me sick to my stomach. Having to pretend that the past never happened, that you're not the same murderous, criminal, sociopath you were three years ago. It makes me want to wretch. If you want to talk unacceptable, that is unacceptable.
Arvin Sloane: I assumed that you had accepted the fact that I made amends for my past.
Sydney Bristow: Amends; Francie and Danny are gone and yet here you are. And everywhere I look I'm reminded of the man that killed them.

Michael Vaughn: [Vaughn sighs] Nadia, researching Martin Bishop, it's... It's not the most productive use of your time.
Nadia Santos: What do you mean?
Michael Vaughn: You should talk to Jack...

Sydney Bristow: It's okay to be nervous.
Nadia Santos: It's just not about meeting Irina. It's just this feeling...
Sydney Bristow: Dread; darkness?
Nadia Santos: Yeah, how do you know?
Sydney Bristow: I've been feeling it to.
Nadia Santos: I've never believed in prophecies, fate, now I'm not so sure.


"Alias: Mirage (#4.18)" (2005)
Sophia Vargas: Eric, you have no idea how excited I am to finally meet you. Nadia says the most beautiful things about you.
Eric Weiss: Really?
Nadia Santos: She asked me if you were tall, dark and handsome. I told her you were tall.
[Weiss and Nadia giggle then kiss]

Michael Vaughn: You okay?
[He looks at Sydney, get closer and places his hands on her shoulders]
Michael Vaughn: You're not okay.
Sydney Bristow: I don't know how I'm going to do this.
Michael Vaughn: Well, you know it's not too late, we can always have Weiss dress up as Irina. He'd make a great housewife.
[Sydney has a small laugh]
Sydney Bristow: I don't remember my parents; back when they were together.
Michael Vaughn: Well, you were a little girl.
Sydney Bristow: I remember the time; I don't remember them .My dad was my dad. He was never around when I was a kid. He was always away on business. My mom, I don't know what my dad was like around my mother. Or what she was like around him. I... I don't know how to do this.
Michael Vaughn: Syd, it's just a job. It's another alias, like all the others. Just trust your training, follow your dad's cues, follow his lead. Besides, I've got snipers everywhere if he starts to get inappropriate.
[Sydney laughs a little]
Nadia Santos: They're ready.
Michael Vaughn: Hey listen to me. You can do this.

Nadia Santos: Well, as you said, you have all the time in the world. Unfortunately, I think you'll have to spend it here.
Arvin Sloane: Well, at least you're here with me.
Nadia Santos: No.
[She fades away]

Arvin Sloane: Nadia, I'm so glad you're here. If I didn't have someone to share this with, I may have doubted my own eyes.
Nadia Santos: You're talking to your dead daughter. This is an odd time to question your sanity.
Arvin Sloane: Perhaps.


"Alias: Before the Flood (#4.22)" (2005)

Sydney Bristow: I know...
[pauses]
Sydney Bristow: Vaughn asked me to marry him.
Nadia Santos: Sydney, that's amazing!
Sydney Bristow: I'm sure there are plenty of brides that want to kill their maid of honor. I'm not one of them.
Nadia Santos: Okay.

Nadia Santos: [Nadia is tied to a chair in Elena's bunker] The only reason that you want me on your side is because you believe that I'm the one to stop Sydney Bristow. But she's my sister. You're nothing to me.
Elena Derevko: I'm sorry you feel that way.
[Elena goes over to a work station and gets a syringe and fills it]
Nadia Santos: What's that?
Elena Derevko: Don't worry darling, it's only tap water.

Elena Derevko: Oh we'll see.

Marcus Dixon: Euros, definitely.

Sydney Bristow: Because your imposter already has the orchid, he doesn't need to acquire any of the other substances you mentioned. All he has to do is put the nectar into the water, you contaminated.
Nadia Santos: You loaded the gun.
Arvin Sloane: [nods his head] That's right.
Sydney Bristow: How many people are we talking about? How many people drank the contaminated water?
Arvin Sloane: Somewhere between three and four hundred million.
Sydney Bristow: What?

Michael Vaughn: It's called accumulated vacation man, use it or lose it.
Sydney Bristow: So you'll water the plants...
Nadia Santos: Got it.
Sydney Bristow: And you'll send out the...
Nadia Santos: Sydney, go have a good time.

Eric Weiss: Yeah, yeah, come on, we're all going bowling.
Sydney: Now?
Eric Weiss: Yeah, there's a 24 bowling alley.

Nadia Santos: You've been lying all along.
Arvin Sloane: Look, I handed everything over to the DSR except for that page; I couldn't part with it, I... I'd spent so much time.
Nadia Santos: I don't want more excuses. Just talking about Rambaldi, your face, your voice, it all changes. This obsession you have...
Arvin Sloane: No it's not an obsession... It's faith.
Nadia Santos: Do you have any idea what your faith costs me? What did you think, that I was sleeping peacefully? The last twelve months were an extended nap?
[She begins to cry]
Nadia Santos: I heard people talking; I felt tubes being shoved down my throat. I couldn't open my eyes, I couldn't move, I couldn't scream. But I felt everything! So forgive me if I don't have much tolerance for your faith.

Nadia Santos: I'm done trying to understand you. You have to make a choice; either me or this.
