Nolan Ross: [approaching Emily and Aiden] Sacrificial lamb, reporting for the slaughter. I wasn't expecting an actual firing squad.

Nolan Ross: My first solo takedown.

Emily Thorne: Tyler never showed up for dinner. I'm impressed. How'd you do it?
Nolan Ross: Well, I can't take all the credit. I took a page from the angel of revenge herself. Dug up some dirt, used it for leverage.
Emily Thorne: What's the dirt?
Nolan Ross: Suffice it to say our boy is a bit of a con man. What he doesn't know is you can't con a con.

Emily Thorne: I release the videos to the press.
Nolan Ross: Why? You already got what you wanted, you destroyed a man's career.
Emily Thorne: I want to destroy his life. If he had done the right thing, he would have saved my father. He chose not to, so down he goes.

"Revenge: Retribution (#2.15)" (2013)
Daniel Grayson: You never sent me the report I asked for detailing your abandoned R&D.
Nolan Ross: Yeah. Guess I kind of forgot about it.
Daniel Grayson: No, see, I don't think you did. I think you don't want me to know about Carrion, and you'd rather get fired than tell me what it does.
Nolan Ross: Let's see if you're right. Fire me.
Daniel Grayson: [whispering] Nolan, if I find out you've done anything other than destroy that program, I won't just fire you. I will cripple you with lawsuits and make sure you never write another line of code again. You got it?
Nolan Ross: Control, alt, delete. Got it.

Emily Thorne: I've retraced every step Amanda made. The computer's nowhere to be found.
Nolan Ross: Well, nothing's pinged on my end, so no one's turned the computer on, which means the Graysons don't have it, either. And they may be losing Daniel, too.
Emily Thorne: What do you mean?
Nolan Ross: Well, he came over here in person to tell me to destroy Carrion. Threatened to break my digital kneecaps if I didn't comply.
Emily Thorne: He's having a crisis of conscience.
Nolan Ross: Or maybe he's just freaked out to realize he's actually got one.

"Revenge: Loyalty (#1.10)" (2011)
Nolan Ross: You crossed the line, Emily. How could you do that to me?

Emily Thorne: You can't build trust on secrets, Nolan. You should know that by now.

Nolan Ross: Miami is for trolls.

"Revenge: Resurrection (#2.2)" (2012)
Nolan Ross: Don't you think it's a little bit dangerous to be catnapping out in the open? Or are you actually baiting the white-haired Mannibal Lecter to come for you?
Emily Thorne: He's not gonna kill me.
Nolan Ross: Oh, really? Did he pinkie swear?

Nolan Ross: I don't think my employees have any respect for me.
Emily Thorne: Why would they? You're not wearing pants.
Nolan Ross: Well, I mean, they don't know that. You know, I once did a video interview with Katie Couric butt-naked in my jacuzzi. She had no idea.

"Revenge: Reckoning (#1.22)" (2012)
Nolan Ross: Don't do anything revenge-y until I get there.

Gordon Murphy: I trust you had a pleasant nap, Miss Clarke. Rather than waste my time on a wild goose chase, I thought I'd give you the opportunity to tell me where you've hidden Grayson's evidence. In return, I may even let your friend here live.
Emily Thorne: Actually, he doesn't concern me.
Nolan Ross: [sarcastically] Gee, don't surgarcoat it, Ems.
Gordon Murphy: Well, if that's the case, I take back my offer.
[Murphy advances on Nolan with a scalpel in hand]
Emily Thorne: The evidence that you want is in locker 428 at the Port Authority bus terminal. The orange key from my keychain will open it.
Gordon Murphy: If that's true, what's to stop me from killing you right now?
Emily Thorne: I could be lying.
Nolan Ross: She's really quite good at it.

Nolan Ross: You're not going anywhere?
Jack Porter: Declan needs me.
Nolan Ross: You're making a colossal mistake.
Jack Porter: You're sure you don't want a drink?
Nolan Ross: Hm. Make it a double. It's gonna be a long fall.

"Revenge: Lineage (#2.8)" (2012)
Nolan Ross: Marco, wait. About the missing money... it all went to the daughter of our first investor.
Marco Romero: What investor, Nolan? Who are you talking about?
Nolan Ross: David Clarke.
Marco Romero: What?
Nolan Ross: After the conviction, I set up the account so his daughter could get what was rightfully hers.
Marco Romero: After the con... Are you insane?
Nolan Ross: You don't know the whole story. David was innocent.
Marco Romero: Okay, you are insane if you believe those conspiracy theories. Think about how this looks, Nolan, for you, for the company. You are Nolan Ross. That name means something now.
Nolan Ross: There would be no company without David, and look, I wasn't about to screw over his daughter after everything that she had been through. If you don't get that, then I don't think we have a future together.
Marco Romero: Wow. Um... Okay, you are choosing a convicted terrorist over me.
Nolan Ross: No. I'm choosing a man that took me at my word over my name.

"Revenge: Doubt (#1.17)" (2012)
Jack Porter: This morning you told me to put all this behind me and now you want me to stake out a bank?
Nolan Ross: No, I want my friend back. And you want answers which you clearly are not gonna get here. So. Best case scenario, you find Amanda, she tells you the whole story and it turns out to be one big Shakespearean misunderstanding. Worst case, turns out you've been wasting your time with a career grifter and potentially murderer. Just sayin'.

"Revenge: Perception (#1.14)" (2012)
Nolan Ross: What's on the revengenda this evening?

"Revenge: Guilt (#1.5)" (2011)
Nolan Ross: What's my little girl with the infinity tattoo up to today?
Emily Thorne: Suddenly, she's thinking of filing a restraining order.
Nolan Ross: Yeah, well, isn't that the pot calling the kettle black? So... what irons are we throwing in the fire this week?
Emily Thorne: We are not throwing anything anywhere. I am going for a swim.
Nolan Ross: Ha! I thought you might say that. You know, it wouldn't, uh... it wouldn't kill you to try and be nice to me.
Emily Thorne: Not part of the plan.
Nolan Ross: Certainly hasn't stopped you from cozying up to Daniel Grayson.
Emily Thorne: That's because he actually *is* part of the plan.

"Revenge: Absolution (#1.19)" (2012)
Nolan Ross: Rough day at the office?
Emily Thorne: He's one of them, Nolan. Conrad confessed everything to Daniel before the interview.

Nolan Ross: He doubled down on Grayson. So what are you gonna do now?

Emily Thorne: I'm gonna kill him.

"Revenge: Victory (#2.17)" (2013)
Emily Thorne: [Padma has been captured by the Initiative] Did you track the source of the text?
Nolan Ross: I tried. The encryption's insane. It's gonna take weeks.
Emily Thorne: Then, Nolan, you need to get started. Look at me. I know you that are hurting, but you need to stop blaming yourself, get on your computer, and dig until you find them. And I swear to God, when you do, I will help you save her. I give you my word.

"Revenge: Masquerade (#2.18)" (2013)
Nolan Ross: [as Aiden enters the Graysons' masquerade party] Ah. Well, well. Every opera needs its phantom.

"Revenge: Truth: Part 1 (#2.21)" (2013)
Newscaster #1: All five New York City boroughs and additional outlying areas have been completely powerless for going on five hours. Thus far, authorities are at a loss to explain how multiple power grids, in addition to numerous communication networks could have all failed at once...
Nolan Ross: Carrion.
Aiden Mathis: But I thought the only person with the ability to activate the program was the Falcon. How could she do that if she's behind bars?
Emily Thorne: She didn't have to. You did it for her.
Nolan Ross: Emily's right. The Falcon must have altered Carrion so that when we hacked the Amanda Clarke Foundation...
Aiden Mathis: It triggered the chain reaction.
Emily Thorne: And she made sure that you used Aiden's administration code to set everything in motion. Everything that we did to prevent this...
Aiden Mathis: Will now prove that I caused it.
Nolan Ross: And we don't even know what they're going to do while the lights are out. This could be catastrophic!
Emily Thorne: Aiden, you need to go dark.
Aiden Mathis: No, I can take care of this...
Emily Thorne: [interrupting] No, you listen to me. I have been through this before. I'm not gonna sit back and watch the Initiative turn you into their next David Clarke.

"Revenge: Illusion (#2.6)" (2012)
Nolan Ross: Ems, Mr. Bond.

"Revenge: Intrigue (#1.6)" (2011)
Nolan Ross: [showing Emily the video of Frank's attempted murder of Lydia] That thud you hear... is the sound of Lydia hitting the roof of the taxi five stories down.
Emily Thorne: I can't believe she survived.
Nolan Ross: I can't believe I survived.
Frank Stevens: [on the video] Victoria, it's Frank. I have some bad news to report. Lydia Davis just jumped off her balcony. Call me when you get this.
Nolan Ross: You know, if I'd shown up one minute earlier, that psychopath would've caught me.
Emily Thorne: Yeah, but he didn't. And you made it out with the list and the video camera.
Nolan Ross: [handing Emily the photograph Lydia was going to use to expose her] And this.
Emily Thorne: We got lucky.
Nolan Ross: You might want to revisit your definition of "lucky" in the dictionary. Lydia might die because of us.
Emily Thorne: If Lydia dies, it's because she sold her soul to the Graysons. This wasn't supposed to happen. I didn't set any of this in motion, they did.
Nolan Ross: Fine. Let's say she survives. Wakes up tomorrow remembering only one thing: this picture. Eventually, someone's gonna find you out.
Emily Thorne: Not if they believe it's all been Frank. As far as the Graysons know... Lydia attempted suicide. When they see this video, they'll know that Frank lied to them.
Nolan Ross: Let's send a copy to the police.
Emily Thorne: No police. Frank dug his own grave. All we need is for Victoria and Conrad to bury him in it.

"Revenge: Allegiance (#3.19)" (2014)
Nolan Ross: Sorry. Did I interrupt something?
Daniel Grayson: Are you out of your mind?

Nolan Ross: I want you to understand. This is war.
