"Alias: Tuesday (#4.13)" (2005)
Sydney Bristow: You guys have to come get me.
Michael Vaughn: Sydney, the hard drives been rigged, it released some kind of a toxin in here. We're in lock-down.
Sydney Bristow: Lock-down; for how long?
Arvin Sloane: We estimate about 36 hours.
Sydney Bristow: What are our other options?
[There is a long pause as Jack and Vaughn look down]
Marshall Flinkman: Umm... excuse me, listen I know you told me you'd let me know if you need anything. But I could do it. I could go to Cuba.

Jack Bristow: Marshall; Sydney has a limited supply of oxygen in a coffin. We have no margin for error. Understood?
Marshall Flinkman: Yeah, I understand, I can do this.

Marshall Flinkman: [Marshall has to infiltrate a German nightclub; he is communicating with Sydney with an earpiece] Okay, I'm in. Now what do I do?
Sydney Bristow: What do you see?
Marshall Flinkman: Well, a lot of people who are into spanking, apparently.
[a random woman grabs him and kisses him]
Marshall Flinkman: Oh my god, I think I just got hepatitis.

Marshall Flinkman: Syd, this guy buried you alive.
Sydney Bristow: Yeah, but he cheated, he hit me with a car first!

Marshall Flinkman: [singing his son to sleep over the phone] Hush... hush... hush little Mitchell, don't you cry. Daddy's here to teach you about Lanthanides. Cerium is first, yes it leads the way. Hexagonal structure and it's iron gray. Praseodymium is next and it looks like brass...

Sydney Bristow: Well you could tell her the truth. That you had to cut out a man's eyes to save the world.
Marshall Flinkman: Yeah, I can tell her that, probably be best just to keep that between us.
[laughs]
Marshall Flinkman: And I didn't save the world exactly, just Hong Kong.
Sydney Bristow: You saved me.

Marshall Flinkman: Vaughn, can you task a satellite over my position?
Michael Vaughn: [Vaughn walks to Marshall's desk] Alright I'm here, what do I do?
Marshall Flinkman: Well tasking a satellite through the NRO will take forever. So go to the config dot system and my phone has GPS and it should be able to route the coordinates through the system.
Michael Vaughn: Got it.
Marshall Flinkman: Okay, now type K H 11 backslash 8 backslash therm backslash config dot sys. Let me know when your there.
Michael Vaughn: Hang on, I don't see a prompt.
Marshall Flinkman: Well there is no prompt, the prompt's implied.
Michael Vaughn: What, I'm supposed to just type it in?
Marshall Flinkman: Yes, God, Vaughn, this is not that hard.
Michael Vaughn: Well I've never done this before.
Marshall Flinkman: Well I do for you people all the time. Now come on.

Marshall Flinkman: [Marshall has accidentally shot a man; they need the man's eyes for a retinal scan. Marshall digs into one eye with a letter opener] Oh god. It's oozing. It's oozing everywhere, sir.
Jack Bristow: [via cell phone] That means you've ruptured the macula. The eye is useless, abandon it. Approach the second one gently, like a soft-boiled egg. You're going to need a digging instrument to assist with this.
Marshall Flinkman: [looks in a drawer] I've got a spork.
Jack Bristow: [bewildered] What's a spork?
Marshall Flinkman: It's like a half-spoon... half-fork, will that do?
Jack Bristow: That will work.

Sydney Bristow: Don't hook up the hard drive.
Michael Vaughn: We know; where are you?
Michael Vaughn: I'm not sure, they... they dragged me to a cemetery, knocked me out, and I woke up in a coffin.
Marshall Flinkman: Syd, are you... have you been buried?
Sydney Bristow: Yes


"Alias: Authorized Personnel Only: Part 2 (#4.2)" (2005)
Marshall Flinkman: The only guy we have left is Sark and that's only because he's in custody. I hate that guy, I mean, really, kinda scares... although I did go visit him... twice... just to see a familiar face. We had eggs.
Eric Weiss: Don't do that.

Marshall Flinkman: [to Dixon] How cool is this? Stealing a sword so we can fight a bad guy, you know, in order to catch an even bigger bad guy, come on come on you would have never let us do this back in the CIA, you know, when you were double breasted serious robot Dixon, you...I mean, not that you...you were just...authoritative...I'm sorry.

Marshall Flinkman: [to Sydney] Okay, Phoenix, you are hot... and I mean that in many ways.

Marshall Flinkman: Syd...Sloane is here.
Sydney Bristow: We know.
Marshall Flinkman: OK.
[hugs Sydney]
Marshall Flinkman: We're back.


"Alias: Facade (#3.15)" (2004)
Michael Vaughn: He wanted the bomb squad called in?
Marshall Flinkman: Well, maybe because he knew there was nothing they could do.

Marshall Flinkman: Okay, first of all, I didn't touch anything, I swear! But the bomb's been activated!
Jack Bristow: We know. We just spoke to Vaughn.
Marshall Flinkman: No, not on the plane, in my office! The bomb in my office has been activated!

Michael Vaughn: We have to keep the bomb at altitude, right? So why... why don't we just land at a high-altitude airport?
Marshall Flinkman: No, the highest altitude airport is in Bangda, Tibet, and that's only 14,000 feet.
[a thought strikes him]
Marshall Flinkman: Wait a minute. Wait, wait a minute. Wait a minute. We can't get rid of the bomb, right? We can't diffuse the bomb, but... we can trick it. Air pressure is the force exerted on a surface by the weight of the air above.
Michael Vaughn: Okay, English, please.
Marshall Flinkman: We need to encase the bomb in an airtight, temperature controlled bubble.
Michael Vaughn: To fool the bomb into thinking we're still at altitude.
Marshall Flinkman: Right, but the thing is, in order to do any of that, you need to remove it from the fuselage and deactivate the motion sensor.
Michael Vaughn: Which is what the bomb squad in Belfast was doing when they died.
Marshall Flinkman: Well... yeah.

Michael Vaughn: I see four wires leading out from the motion sensor. Red, green, yellow, and black.
Marshall Flinkman: Uh, can you see which one is looped to the power source?
Michael Vaughn: Yeah. The red one.
Marshall Flinkman: All right. Red one. Okay. Go ahead and cut that.
[Vaughn moves to cut the wire]
Marshall Flinkman: No, no, no! Wait. Wait, wait, wait.
Michael Vaughn: I hate it when you do that.
Marshall Flinkman: Is there a suppressor on the filament?
Michael Vaughn: Yeah.
Marshall Flinkman: Then don't cut it. It's a false lead.
Michael Vaughn: Marshall!
Marshall Flinkman: My bad. Sorry. What you need to find is the antistatic wire that runs to the plasma relay. It's probably wrapped in degaussed ceramic fiber.
Michael Vaughn: No, you have to explain this to me in words I can understand.
Marshall Flinkman: Well, it... could look like anything. I mean, there are a million variations. You need to tell me what you're looking at, Vaughn.
Michael Vaughn: Well, I... I don't know what I'm looking at.
Marshall Flinkman: Well, you'd better find somebody that does.


"Alias: The Awful Truth (#4.3)" (2005)
Michael Vaughn: Bishop also recently purchased an MK-1200 from Shalini Tech.
Marshall Flinkman: Wow! You don't buy a server like that to look at on-line porn.
Michael Vaughn: [sarcastically] No, you buy it to coordinate international business operations, that's what it's designed for.

Michael Vaughn: Trigger the belt.
Marshall Flinkman: What, you don't want to milk this a little bit?

Marshall Flinkman: This guy scares me. I mean you know, he killed his wife, he's a wife killer. Beat her to death, stuffed her in a dumpster who knows what else.
Michael Vaughn: [Watching Sydney on the monitor] Marshall; Shut up!

Michael Vaughn: The escape tunnel only gave them a 10 minute lead; they have got to be somewhere.
Marshall Flinkman: [Talking over Vaughn] I know... I know... I know...
Michael Vaughn: So find her
Marshall Flinkman: You're getting very impatient I'm doing the best that I can
Michael Vaughn: You've been doing it for an hour
Marshall Flinkman: To trace a guy on a cellular network using the frequency of his phone is like trying to find a needle in a county full of haystacks.
Michael Vaughn: You have to find her!
Marshall Flinkman: [Starts yelling] Yeah; I know what I'm supposed to be doing alright, just shut up!
[Vaughn is speechless]
Marshall Flinkman: Sorry about that
Michael Vaughn: No; that was good...


"Alias: Before the Flood (#4.22)" (2005)
Eric Weiss: Fine, you know what we've managed harder, come on, there's gotta be a way.
[sighs]
Eric Weiss: What would Jack do in this situation? Jack is the king of this sort of thing.
Marshall Flinkman: Well, first he'd probably glower a bit, right? And then he'd, I don't know, probably blackmail or torture somebody, Right?
[pauses]
Marshall Flinkman: You're a genius!
[Gets out of his chair]
Marshall Flinkman: You Eric Weiss are a genius.
[They move into Sloane's office]
Eric Weiss: I thought Sloane turned the Blackwell index over to Langley?
Marshall Flinkman: He didn't, it's complicated.
Eric Weiss: Yeah, not really. Sloane's evil, why wouldn't he hold onto blackmail material on world leaders?

Marshall Flinkman: [Weiss is attempting to speak Russian with Minister Karkov on the phone. Karkov just told him that his Russian is terrible. Marshall gets upset and talks at the phone, whispering] Whatever, I wrote this program in five minutes, you perv!
Eric Weiss: Okay, I'm going to make this real simple for you. We need your Milsat access codes. You either give it to us now or every major news organization will get the tuba photos by morning.
Minister Karkov: A; I don't know what you're talking about. B; I'm running a trace on this call.
Eric Weiss: Great, you know what; I look forward to meeting you. Hey, while I've got you on the line, let me ask you, what's the significance of the green balloons?
[There is a long pause, Weiss and Marshall look hopeful]
Minister Karkov: Alpha, 572811, Mike. Now let me be clear, if those photos ever...
Eric Weiss: Oh sure thing Minister, or should I call you a Cowboy?
[Cowboy is said with a Russian accent]

Eric Weiss: Are we close?
Marshall Flinkman: Listen, that's not really a helpful question right now. Okay?
Eric Weiss: Ahh, you know what, don't blame yourself; this satellite network was designed to withstand World War III.
[He takes out his earpiece and sighs]
Eric Weiss: So I just got off the phone with my buddy at the secret service. They've initiated the continuity of government protocol. The President, his cabinet, their family members being evacuated to underground command centers. I don't know, somewhere in the back of my mind, I'm kidding myself, but I thought maybe I'd be on the list.
Marshall Flinkman: Yeah, it's kinda like high school again, the cool kids are having a party and I'm not invited.
Eric Weiss: Alright, there's still time left, let's not give up on them yet.
Marshall Flinkman: [Picks up his phone and call his wife] Hey honey, hi, uhh, no I don't have a lot of time, I just... I just wanted to tell you I love you, I don't get to tell you that often enough...
[Looks up at Weiss]
Marshall Flinkman: No I'm haven't been drinking. I'm just going to be home early tonight, okay, bye.


"Alias: The Abduction (#2.10)" (2002)
Sydney Bristow: My math skills may be above average but I can't do advanced calculus in my head.
Arvin Sloane: That's why you're going in with Marshall.
Marshall Flinkman: Marshall who?

Marshall Flinkman: You know what I always say - if it ain't Baroque, don't fix it!

Sydney Bristow: [Sydney and Marshall have just talked their way past a security post] What did you say to him?
Marshall Flinkman: [nervous] I don't know. I think it was "Go away I can smell you from here" in Ewok.


"Alias: So It Begins (#1.2)" (2001)
Marshall Flinkman: Okay. Who here has trouble falling asleep at night, hmm?
[raises his hand - the others just look at him]
Marshall Flinkman: No one else does? OKay. Well, anyway, myself, on occasion, I find it difficult to nod off - mind racing, ideas, et cetera. So, this kind of pertains to the whole sleeping thing.

Marshall Flinkman: [to Sidney] Hey, listen, I don't normally get overly personalized. I don't like to cross that line. I mean, you probably don't know this about me but I am not really much of a social person. I don't... I like myself. I mean, I enjoy myself. I just don't feel that kind of pressure when I am all by myself. Did you ever feel that way?
Sydney Bristow: You can say anything you want to me.
Marshall Flinkman: I just wanted to tell you that i am really sorry about your fiancé and it's nice to have you back.

Marshall Flinkman: Cut the blue wire.
Sydney Bristow: I'm cutting the blue wire.
Marshall Flinkman: Wait, hold your phone!
Sydney Bristow: Don't tell me to hold the phone, I'm sitting on a ticking nuclear bomb!


"Alias: Succession (#3.2)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: The pickup location The Covenant specified is a theater in Munich in the red light district. Actually, it's an adult theater. I checked, and today's feature... A rough translation, I don't speak German. It's "Penile Code Part Deux." If anybody cares, I have the times.

Marcus Dixon: [to Sydney] I want you to accompany the hostage rescue team.
Marshall Flinkman: Actually, I had an idea. Syd should go in as a biochem major. Harvard dropout, totally spoiled. Maybe she got kicked out because she was synthesizing ecstasy in her dorm room, or maybe crystal, crank...
Marcus Dixon: Fine


"Alias: Search and Rescue (#4.21)" (2005)
Marshall Flinkman: So what you're saying is a large red ball, plus contaminated water equals a city full of homicidal maniacs. That was a sentence I'd never thought I'd say.
Michael Vaughn: But what's the point, besides the weirdest terrorist attack of all time.
Jack Bristow: Their purpose remains a mystery, perhaps Sydvoko serves some strategic importance.
Eric Weiss: I'd go with world domination, but that's always my go to.

Michael Vaughn: [Entering the weapons room] The Usual?
Sydney Bristow: Not with what I'll be wearing. I had this feeling before, a sense, I almost felt like I was going to pass out. I don't know how to describe it, but it was just like dread, like something horrible is happening.
[Vaughn walks over, takes her face in his hands, and kisses her]
Michael Vaughn: We've been tasked to rescue the women who killed my father, your mother, who is supposed to be dead by the way, and to disable a giant red ball, floating over a Russian city.
Sydney Bristow: Crazier things have happened...
Michael Vaughn: That's kinda my point. Syd, without you, I'd be lost. I mean this world, this job, everything, it would make me insane.
Sydney Bristow: I know...
[He takes her hands in his]
Michael Vaughn: We're going to get through this.
Sydney Bristow: How can you be sure?
Michael Vaughn: How can I not be? We're still here. Syd...
[Vaughn reaches into his pants pocket for the ring, Sydney smiles at Vaughn]
Sydney Bristow: What?
Marshall Flinkman: [Marshall walks in] Hey, sorry to interrupt, you ready to roll?
Michael Vaughn: [Vaughn looks at Sydney] Yeah...
[Vaughn takes something from Marshall as he walks off]
Michael Vaughn: Thanks...
Sydney Bristow: Vaughn?
Michael Vaughn: [He puts the ring back in his pocket] We should go.


"Alias: Masquerade (#1.18)" (2002)
Marshall Flinkman: Hi, I'm sorry I'm late sorry and I'm sorry that I have hives. I'm developing a thermal pigmentation capsule and you know, not quite react, uhm, you know, it's... Never mind. It should be gone in couple of hours.

Marshall Flinkman: Thanks to the microchip we have a picture of data-core and trust me, this core? Hardcore.


"Alias: The Orphan (#4.12)" (2005)
Michael Vaughn: Marshall; ah, we should have lunch sometime.
Marshall Flinkman: Really, yeah, oh man, anytime, absolutely, I'm there. Did you... today?
Michael Vaughn: No.

Jack Bristow: [Marshall is going into detail about the technology, while Sydney is in the field] Marshall; not the time.
Marshall Flinkman: Vaughn asked me to lunch.


"Alias: The Box: Part 2 (#1.13)" (2002)
Marcus Dixon: You okay?
Marshall Flinkman: [blood is running down his head] Except for my head injury, yeah.

Marshall Flinkman: [holding Sloane's severed finger] Hey, Sloane gave me the finger.


"Alias: Legacy (#3.21)" (2004)
Toni Cummings: I want you.
Marshall Flinkman: C-Come again?
Toni Cummings: To work for me.

Marshall Flinkman: And... to be honest with you, I kind of like working for the good guys. No offense.
Toni Cummings: None taken.


"Alias: Detente (#4.7)" (2005)
Marshall Flinkman: OK, they're doing it, they're in the room. Yo, Mr. Sloane, I know how against this you were... If Sydney chooses to say I told you so.
Arvin Sloane: She's not out yet.
Marshall Flinkman: That's true. But their good, they're really good.

Sydney Bristow: He owns a fleet of sports cars, Ferrari's Lamborghini's, Bentley's
Eric Weiss: This guy's living my junior high fantasy
Marshall Flinkman: Or my current one


"Alias: A Missing Link (#3.4)" (2003)
Jack Bristow: We can assume what they've stolen is a precursor agent requiring further synthesis.
Eric Weiss: Okay, does everyone here speak science?
Marshall Flinkman: Yeah.
Eric Weiss: No, Marshall, they don't.

Marshall Flinkman: [holding a machine that could reveal the sex of his baby] You know, I could find out right now.
Carrie Bowman: Touch me with that thing and you die.


"Alias: Snowman (#1.19)" (2002)
Marshall Flinkman: [Talking to Sydney and Noah] 0.05DBs is closer to, like, a sound of a cockroach rubbing his legs together. You know... reeeeer, reeeeeer

Marshall Flinkman: Listen, I know I've been somewhat impressed with myself in the past, but this time I am, like, freaking out about it.
Arvin Sloane: Marshall, could you just tell me what?
Marshall Flinkman: I used a signal lost recovery procedure to examine the low-level data sector. I created a raw image ...
Arvin Sloane: Marshall! What did you do?
Marshall Flinkman: I found Valenko. I mean Calder. Well, it's the same guy, right? Well, I found him!


"Alias: The Nemesis (#3.6)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: This guy Lang created this really cool device. Basically, take it to any missile silo in all of Russia and it interfaces with the launch control console, bypasses all security protocols: initiation codes, the commander's launch key... irrelevant.
Sydney Bristow: It's a skeleton key for Russia's nuclear weapons?
Marshall Flinkman: Yeah and to be honest, I'm just a little bit jealous.

Marshall Flinkman: You've got the looks. I've got the brains.
Michael Vaughn: I've got the looks? You've got the brains?


"Alias: Reprisal (#5.16)" (2006)
Arvin Sloane: So you want to see your family again, don't you? Don't be difficult. Think about your son. Marshall, you're not cut out for this.
Marshall Flinkman: You know, I never liked you. But I tolerated you, because I had to, because you were my superior, and I was afraid of you. I mean I saw how twisted you were. But now I see you for you for who you really are, you are a weak pathetic man. You know what, you're right, I'm not cut out for this, but I am thinking about my son. I want Mitchell to look up to me, to be proud of his dad, which is why, no matter what you do to me... I'll never help you.

Marshall Flinkman: [to Sloane after Peyton tortured him by pulling off his fingernails] You know what, I got a hangnail right there, on my thumb, you mind working on that one next?


"Alias: Repercussions (#3.5)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: Now as far as our technology can detect - and these are next gen tests, as high-end as it gets - he's not lyin', folks.
Sydney Bristow: If there's someone who can fool those tests, it's Sloane.
Marshall Flinkman: Yeah, well, in theory, yes. But in practice, he'd really have to be using the next gen's next gen lie detector defeating tech, which frankly, even I can't imagine.

Marshall Flinkman: If I were any more nervous, I'd need new underpants just about now.


"Alias: Unveiled (#3.18)" (2004)
Marshall Flinkman: [to Sydney and Vaughn] Don't worry because lucky for you, I kind of have a name in the hacker community myself...
[sotto]
Marshall Flinkman: 'black kitty'.

Sydney Bristow: Are we sure he'll have his computer with him?
Marshall Flinkman: Does a cowboy leave his gun at home when he goes to the saloon? Trust me, he'll have it.


"Alias: Hourglass (#3.19)" (2004)
Marshall Flinkman: [to Vaughn] She is good. If you had to fall in love with someone who's evil, I would see why it'd be her.

Sydney Bristow: The execution is going forward?
Marshall Flinkman: Yeah, at midnight. I thought... Ya know... for some reason, it makes me incredibly sad. I feel like you're the only person I can talk to about this.
Sydney Bristow: Marshall; kill the grid now!
Marshall Flinkman: Right... Sorry. Talk later.


"Alias: The Coup (#1.14)" (2002)
[while discussing the attack on FTL and SD-6]
Marcus Dixon: What you are saying is that FTL no longer exist?
Marshall Flinkman: Uhm, sorry, stupid question but since FTL is, sorry, was our enemy for like ever, shouldn't we be drinking champagne?

Marshall Flinkman: So you wanna hack into casino? Now, you remember how tight in that Siberian silo couple years ago? Pick one compared to Vegas. Casino security is like an onion, it's layer after layer after layer... and the more you peel back, the more you wanna cry. Facial recognition, video surveillance... The only way to get inside the system is to connect directly to one of the fyber-optic cables but any interruption in the fiber will rule security. Except, one thing nobody else has but you is me.


"Alias: The Box: Part 1 (#1.12)" (2002)
Marshall Flinkman: Uhm, excuse me? Ah, look, ah... I am having... I a, feeling like a Stockholm syndrom kinda thing

Marshall Flinkman: As luck would have it, I'm feeling kind of a... a Stockholm Syndrome thing happening.


"Alias: No Hard Feelings (#5.15)" (2006)
Vaughn: Marshall! I'm gonna need a green light in a hurry!
Agent Marshall Flinkman: Easyer said than done. It's all in german..."Anschlag"?
Agent Jack Bristow: "Gruen"


"Alias: Breaking Point (#3.8)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: Forensics guys are monitoring the network.
Michael Vaughn: Isn't there any way to bypass that?
Marshall Flinkman: Of course... it's me, but...
[He goes to get something]
Marshall Flinkman: . I give you the codes, you're gonna bust her out, aren't you? Kick some NSC booty? Can I just say... love.


"Alias: Nightingale (#4.14)" (2005)
Marshall Flinkman: I didn't shut down that reactor at all.
Jack Bristow: That's impossible!
Marshall Flinkman: No it isn't. The printouts, listen, it is physically impossible for me to shut down that reactor from a remote location. I mean given its particular status. It would have to be shut down manually but that's impossible too, because that you mean that someone, that that's
[pauses as he realizes what happened]
Marshall Flinkman: ... I mean you. The only way it could happen is if you went into the reactor yourself.
Jack Bristow: It was my daughter's life.
[pauses; walks into elevator]
Jack Bristow: Between *us*


"Alias: Reunion (#3.3)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: [to Dixon] Uh, you know I was curious. Lyndsey briefs the president, right? Well, you think maybe, assuming that all this goes well, he could request one of those little White House tie clips for me or maybe some peanuts from Air Force One because I love peanuts. Uh, you figure they would get top quality peanuts if you're, uh, President.


"Alias: Mirage (#4.18)" (2005)
Sydney Bristow: Ah, thank you! Marshall, remind me to kiss you.
Marshall Flinkman: Uhhh... okay.
[He gets a huge grin]
Eric Weiss: What... What did she say?
Marshall Flinkman: Uhh... Uhh... nothin'.


"Alias: Blowback (#3.14)" (2004)
Eric Weiss: [Sydney, Vaughn and Weiss are seeing a picture of Marshall's baby] Will he ever open his eyes?
Marshall Flinkman: Babies sleep, Weiss, that's what they do, you know, except when they're screaming. Last night, from midnight to six.
Sydney Bristow: He's gorgeous, Marshall.
Marshall Flinkman: Thanks.
Sydney Bristow: Isn't he beautiful?
Michael Vaughn: He has my nose.


"Alias: The Descent (#4.20)" (2005)
Marshall Flinkman: [Vaughn is looking at Jacks office heavily contemplating something and then finally takes a deep breath and starts walking. Marshall stops him] Oh hey, Vaughn could you sign this? It's for Weiss, his grandfather died.
Michael Vaughn: Yeah, actually can I do it in a little bit? I need to ask Jack something first.
Marshall Flinkman: Oh sure, no problem.
[Marshall starts walking to Jacks office with Vaughn]
Michael Vaughn: Where you going?
Marshall Flinkman: Well I thought I'd go with you to get Mr. Bristow to sign this while we're in there.
Michael Vaughn: Oh, you know what, actually I need to see him alone, it's kinda personal.
Marshall Flinkman: Oh, uhh, since when can you tell Mr. Bristow something you can't tell me?
Michael Vaughn: This is something that I need to ask *Jack*. If you were Sydney's father I could ask you, but... you're not.
Marshall Flinkman: No... I'm not... I still don't understand, what me not being Sydney's father has to do with you...
[Vaughn reaches into his pocket and pulls out a ring case, opens it and show an engagement ring to Marshall]
Michael Vaughn: Understand now?
Marshall Flinkman: Oh my god, hey man congratulations! That's fantastic!
Michael Vaughn: Thanks.
Marshall Flinkman: I'm sure Mr. Bristow's going to be thrilled.
Michael Vaughn: Really? I'm just hoping he doesn't shot me on the spot.


"Alias: Another Mister Sloane (#4.16)" (2005)
Arvin Sloane: As you are aware, someone has been actively perpetrating crime in my name. Objective is simple, find the man. Apprehend him.
Michael Vaughn: Assuming he exists at all.
Jack Bristow: That's the assumption we're working with.
Arvin Sloane: Our best lead, so far, is Roberts. Where are we with him?
Marcus Dixon: Roberts has been interrogated, his knowledge of the organization he's working for is extremely limited.
Sydney Bristow: Well, we can still use him, he knows their contact protocol. We give Roberts the coil, put him into play. He makes an exchange, we track the coil back to Arvin Clone.
[Sloane looks at her puzzled]
Sydney Bristow: Sorry, that's what we've been calling him.
Eric Weiss: Yeah also Marvin Sloane,
[laughing in the room]
Eric Weiss: Rolling Sloane's...
Marshall Flinkman: But obviously equally disrespectful...


"Alias: S.O.S. (#5.10)" (2006)
Jeffrey Davenport: [At CIA headquarters in DC] So Jack, you care to enlighten us as to why you called and operations meeting at 8:00 on a Friday?
Jack Bristow: I didn't call you all here for an operations meeting. Given that all of you have Alpha Black clearance, most of you may already be aware that A.P.O. has been investigating an organization known as Prophet Five. What may however, come to news to you is we have reason to believe that someone within our own agency is in collusion with this organization... Someone with Alpha Black clearance.
Arvin Sloane: [At APO with Marshall and Dixon] What have we got so far?
Marshall Flinkman: Four down, three to go. Still nothing.
Jack Bristow: The reason I've gathered you all here, if it isn't obvious by now, only seven people in the entire agency have this level of clearance, and all of them are sitting in this room.
Jeffrey Davenport: Oh, come on!
Arthur Devlin: Jack, this is absurd. Are you suggesting that one of us is working for a terrorist organization?
Jack Bristow: That's exactly what I'm suggesting.
Marshall Flinkman: I got a match.
Marcus Dixon: Jack, we've got a signal match.
Jack Bristow: One of you is working for Prophet Five and we have your number.
Arthur Devlin: Oh, that's enough, this meetings over.
Arvin Sloane: Go.
[You can hear dialing in the background and then a cell phone rings. The room sees that the ringing phone belongs to Davenport. Jack pulls his gun out and shoots him in the leg]
Jeffrey Davenport: [Screams in pain] Aah...


"Alias: Maternal Instinct (#5.11)" (2006)
Irina Derevko: [Over the phone] Listen to me very carefully, Marshall. Jack and Sydney are in Vancouver, Queen's Bank. They need extraction.
Marshall Flinkman: Okay, uh, is this who I think it is?
Irina Derevko: Tell the team they'll need diapers.


"Alias: Full Disclosure (#3.11)" (2004)
Sydney Bristow: Can you locate the cube?
Marshall Flinkman: Well, no, not exactly, but I can narrow it down to a ten-yard radius.
Sydney Bristow: [happily relieved] Marshall, that's called locating it.


"Alias: Remnants (#3.10)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: It's what was inside the box. It's human tissue - like, still active. Oh, and there was a name etched inside the box: Milo Rambaldi.


"Alias: Passage: Part 1 (#2.8)" (2002)
Marshall Flinkman: Hi. Welcome. Don't kill me.
Julian Sark: Look, I understand that none of you are inclined to believe a word I say but I assure you, it's not in my best interest to betray you. You've given me an opportunity of a lifetime, and I don't intend to squander it.


"Alias: The Telling (#2.22)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: Well, post-fish, when I went to drop her off, this is traditionally, clasically the time where I would - or a man would - kiss her. And, well, I just started sweating.
Eric Weiss: How bad?
Marshall Flinkman: Bad. Weird bad. Freak show bad.


"Alias: Pandora (#4.15)" (2005)
Marshall Flinkman: You're probably going to want to kill me once I tell you this, but I ran some tests.
Jack Bristow: What kind of tests?
Marshall Flinkman: You may be very sick Mr Bristow. Now you'll need additional blood work...
Jack Bristow: I thought I made myself clear Marshall; this is not something that I care to discuss.
Marshall Flinkman: I understand... Just hear me out. You have a mutation.
Jack Bristow: Marshall, I've heard enough.
Marshall Flinkman: Damn it, you may not care what happens to you, but what happens to you affects other people, Sydney, for example. Have you thought about that? You need to see a doctor now!


"Alias: Countdown (#2.20)" (2003)
Carrie Bowman: Are you gay?
Marshall Flinkman: Why, is there someone you wanted to set me up with?
Carrie Bowman: No, it's just every cute guy that I meet turns out to be gay.


"Alias: The Road Home (#4.11)" (2005)
Marshall Flinkman: Salzburg; now according to the memory chip, Korjev storing the targeting system in the sub-basement of a disco tech that he owns, called the Club Falice. Which officially begs the question, what is up with these guys and night clubs?


"Alias: Almost Thirty Years (#1.22)" (2002)
Marcus Dixon: Marshall, can you remember back to the Aconcagua operation? Sydney's code name?
Marshall Flinkman: Miss Bristow? It was, uh, Bluebird.
Marcus Dixon: Bluebird. So it wasn't Freelancer?
Marshall Flinkman: Freelancer? No, no, it was Bluebird. Definitely.


"Alias: The Frame (#3.17)" (2004)
Marshall Flinkman: Okay, now this is what I was looking at. That's your basic land mass. But then if I compare the topography with oceanic mapping... heh, Sloane is a genius.
[Sydney looks at Marshall funny]
Marshall Flinkman: I mean an evil, horrible genius. Bad man genius. But still, genius.


"Alias: There's Only One Sydney Bristow (#5.12)" (2006)
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?


"Alias: The Getaway (#2.12)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: Actually, um, Mr. Sloane, I noticed you're not wearing the tie I gave you.
[Sloane ignores his comment and Marshall faded smile]
Marshall Flinkman: It's okay.


"Alias: A Free Agent (#2.15)" (2003)
Michael Vaughn: [Marshall is offered a job with the real CIA] Hi, I'm Michael Vaughn. Welcome to the CIA.
Marshall Flinkman: Uh, yeah I've heard that one before.


"Alias: Cipher (#2.3)" (2002)
Marshall Flinkman: [to Sydney] ... if you're stuck in the ducts when the rocket launches, then, well, boom. And I'd miss you.


"Alias: Truth Be Told (#1.1)" (2001)
Agent Marshall Flinkman: It's a digital camera. I have it at 42 exposures, but I wanna get it to 47 because... it's a prime number.


"Alias: Mea Culpa (#1.9)" (2001)
Marshall Flinkman: [holding a gadget] Okay, now, this thing sucks... literally. Sucks all the information from the computer hard drive right into the internal flash RAM.


"Alias: Taken (#3.16)" (2004)
Marshall Flinkman: I enhanced the audio, and it turns out our friend Mr. Sark made a phone call.
Julian Sark: [on recording] Notify the extraction team. I should be at the LZ on schedule. Do we have the hostages?... Excellent... Not if I see you first, love.


"Alias: Prophet Five (#5.1)" (2005)
Marshall Flinkman: Hey, I just brought about thirty federal laws, if I get caught, I'll be sharing a cell with a guy named Bruno...
Eric Weiss: It's white collar, more like Martha Stewart.


"Alias: Firebomb (#2.16)" (2003)
Michael Vaughn: You said everyone in the radius was affected, even people who were taking cover?
Marshall Flinkman: Yeah. Well, there's no defense against this kind of energy. It goes through walls, concrete, steel, everything.
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: There's no shield.
Marshall Flinkman: No. Sorry. Oh, um, I should probably also tell you that, um, this kind of energy knocks out computer circuitry. Which means if it's pointed at the sky, it could take down planes.


"Alias: Spirit (#1.10)" (2001)
Marshall Flinkman: OK, this place you are going to is swanky. Hehe, like super swanky which is why I made you these puppies
[holds sunglasses in his hands]
Marshall Flinkman: . Now, not that they only take pictures silently and have telephoto lenses but they are also super swanky
[puts them on]
Marshall Flinkman: .


"Alias: Truth Takes Time (#2.18)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: Uh, excuse me, one thing. Did you say that before the explosion, your mother called out your name?
Sydney Bristow: Yes.
Marshall Flinkman: Well, why'd she do that? Does that seem weird to anyone or is that just me? It's cool if it is just me. It is just me, isn't it?
Jack Bristow: Irina may have wanted to save Sydney's life.
Sydney Bristow: I doubt that's the case.


"Alias: Parity (#1.3)" (2001)
Arvin Sloane: Marshall, go back to work.
Marshall Flinkman: Just to clarify this, I am not fired?
Arvin Sloane: 'Go back to work' does not mean fired.


"Alias: Doppelgänger (#1.5)" (2001)
Marshall Flinkman: This transmitter will override the CPU and make the network think that you are the sys admin - the system administrator.


"Alias: A Higher Echelon (#2.11)" (2003)
Marshall Flinkman: My name is Marshall J. Flinkman, and I'm here to rescue you.


"Alias: Fait Accompli (#5.7)" (2005)
Jack Bristow: [Sydney has just injected Dean with a version of LSD that Marshall modified] How long until we can interrogate Dean?
Marshall Flinkman: Not long. In about an hour, he'll think your God. He'll tell you anything you want to know. Of course, if you'd like, I could facilitate the process.
Jack Bristow: Let's do that.
[Psychedelic music starts playing in the background]
Jack Bristow: I see you've done this before.


"Alias: Bob (#5.8)" (2005)
Rachel Gibson: [to Sark as she is about to cut the wire to attempt to disarm a bomb he is handcuffed to] Just so we're clear... You approached me, you were the one who let me into your room, and afterwards you were the one who wanted to cuddle.
[Sark is rendered speechless. Rachael cuts the wire]
Rachel Gibson: It's disarmed.
Sydney Bristow: [Over coms] That was spectacular Rachael.
Rachel Gibson: Thank you.
Sydney Bristow: [Off the coms to Marshall] About what you just heard...
Marshall Flinkman: Don't need to know, don't want to know.


"Alias: Time Will Tell (#1.8)" (2001)
Marshall Flinkman: That sound that you're - you know that boom? That's my mind blowing!


"Alias: After Six (#3.13)" (2004)
Marshall Flinkman: [after get married with Carrie] I love you, Mrs. Flinkman!
Carrie Bowman: I'm keeping my name!


"Alias: I See Dead People (#5.14)" (2006)
Jack Bristow: What I'm about to tell you, is not to leave this room. Agent Vaughn is alive.
[Tom and Dixon share a confused look]
Marshall Flinkman: I knew it! I knew it! I knew he couldn't be dead!
Jack Bristow: For the last several months, Vaughn's been kept in a secure location in Nepal; pending his recovery. I hope you all can understand that secrecy was a necessary measure to ensure his safety. Unfortunately those measures weren't sufficient. Through Sloane's tapping of our network, the Prophet Five network learned of Sydney's trip to Nepal. They sent an agent to intercept her.
Marcus Dixon: Is she okay?
Jack Bristow: She's fine; she made it to Vaughn's location, but Vaughn was no longer there.
Rachel Gibson: He was abducted.
Jack Bristow: In a manner of speaking.
[He turns on the monitor with a picture of Vaughn and Anna -as Sydney- walking together]
Jack Bristow: We managed to pick up the trail. This was taken in Hamburg international airport one hour ago. The woman in the photo is not Sydney...
