"Homeland: New Car Smell (#2.4)" (2012)
Nicholas Brody: I liked you, Carrie.
Carrie Mathison: I loved you!

Carrie Mathison: You're a disgrace to your nation, Sargent Nicholas Brody. You're a traitor and a terrorist, and now it's time you pay for that.

Carrie Mathison: It reeks, you know, your bullshit. Do I want to be friends with a demented ex-soldier who hates America, who decided that strapping on a bomb was what the answer to what ailed him, despite his daughter, his son, people who loved him in real life and not in the mind-f-k world of Abu Nazir? Who in the end didn't have the stones to go through with it but had no problem sending me to the nuthouse? Yeah... no thanks. I don't think I need a friend like that.
Nicholas Brody: Ok. Not friends.
Carrie Mathison: So what are you going to do now, you going to kill me? Blame it on rough sex, maybe? How long can you get away with something like that?
Nicholas Brody: I've had a pretty good run so far... I seem to be good at this, if nothing else.


"Homeland: Blind Spot (#1.5)" (2011)
Pittman: We sent a phantom e-mail to the one Hamid gave you. Whoever it is will never actually receive the e-mail or know that it was sent. So far, it's bounced off of a server in Rio, where it went through a re-encryption filtering protocol, then to Johannesburg - same drill - then to Thailand, then Finland, and now, nearly an hour later, your guess is as...
[the computer chimes]
Pittman: I'd say you owe me dinner, Carrie. Possibly even sex.
Carrie Mathison: [not believing what she's seeing] Holy fuck!
Pittman: Well, I wouldn't go that far.
Carrie Mathison: [running out of the room] Jesus Christ.
[cut to Carrie entering another office]
Carrie Mathison: The fourteenth man gave up an e-mail address we just traced to the engineering department at Bryden University.
Danny Galvez: Faisel? Are you fucking kidding me? The professor we tailed, then cleared?
Carrie Mathison: Correct. Everybody, stop what you're doing! Only thing I need you to do right now is find this man, Raquim Faisel.

Saul Berenson: The working theory is that Hamid smuggled the razor blade inside the sole of his shoe.
Carrie Mathison: Bullshit! I mean, not only did Brody contrive to get himself in the room, he orchestrated Hamid's suicide and he warned Dr. Faisel. And we - you and I - let it happen. Enough on the sidelines. Enough in the shadows. We need to take this up the chain before we're counting bodies and trying to spin yet another monumental intelligence screwup.
Saul Berenson: Don't think I'm not considering it.
Carrie Mathison: Well, how about doing something about it?
Saul Berenson: Because nothing's changed, Carrie.
Carrie Mathison: Wh-wh- What do you mean "nothing's changed"?
Saul Berenson: I don't see Brody giving Hamid a damn thing, do you? Not a razor blade, not a god damn summer cold.
Carrie Mathison: Good! You know? Get angry! I'm over your whole detached routine.
Saul Berenson: You're out of line. It's my home. Get out.
Carrie Mathison: I'm going to Estes with or without your approval.
Saul Berenson: Take some boxes, 'cause you're gonna need 'em when you clean out your desk.
Carrie Mathison: What happened to the Saul Berenson that trekked the Karakoram, did three months in a Malaysian prison, stared down Uday Hussein at the height of his power? When did you become such a pussy, Saul?
Saul Berenson: I think you should leave now.

Frank Mathison: Enjoy. Drive safe. And...
Carrie Mathison, Frank Mathison: [together] Fuck the CIA!


"Homeland: Semper I (#1.4)" (2011)
Carrie Mathison: [following suspect] Guy hasn't broken the speed limit once.
Danny Galvez: Does that make him more, or less suspicious?
Carrie Mathison: It makes him boring as shit.

Carrie Mathison: Why are you being nice to me?
David Estes: Do I need a reason?
Carrie Mathison: Not unless you want me to believe a word you're saying.

Carrie Mathison: Hey, can I talk to you for a minute? The FISA warrant expires tomorrow.
Saul Berenson: If you're asking me to try and extend it, don't.
Carrie Mathison: At least hear me out.
Saul Berenson: I had to drag a skeleton from Judge Turner's closet to get you those four weeks in the first place.
Carrie Mathison: I know what you did.
Saul Berenson: And you still haven't produced a single lead connecting Sergeant Brody to this or any plot against America.
Carrie Mathison: That doesn't mean I'm wrong. It just means he may be laying low for a while. Turned and trained, but a sleeper.
Saul Berenson: You're arguing against yourself, Carrie. We can't watch him indefinitely. You know it.
Carrie Mathison: But, Saul...
Saul Berenson: Listen to me. Listen carefully. This intelligence your asset gave up her life to acquire... do not squander it by continuing to invade the constitutionally protected privacy of the Brody family.
Carrie Mathison: It's not an either-or proposition. The money we're tracking is connected to Brody. I just haven't found out how.
Saul Berenson: If you're right, the money will eventually lead back to him. But until then, you need to take down that surveillance. First chance you get, you will remove the cameras and microphones from Sergeant Brody's house and cover your tracks. Are we clear?


"Homeland: Pilot (#1.1)" (2011)
Saul Berenson: What were his exact words, please?
Carrie Mathison: "An American prisoner of war has been turned."
Saul Berenson: He said this in English?
Carrie Mathison: Yes. He whispered it into my ear right before the guards pulled me away.
Saul Berenson: And when he used the expression "turned"...
Carrie Mathison: He meant turned - working for Abu Nazir.
Saul Berenson: Why am I just hearing about this now?
Carrie Mathison: Because until ten minutes ago, I didn't know there were any POWs still alive in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Carrie Mathison: I missed something once before. I won't... I can't let that happen again.
Saul Berenson: It was ten years ago. Everyone missed something that day.
Carrie Mathison: Well, everyone's not me.

[first lines]
Carrie Mathison: I don't care where he is. Find him, it's urgent. Yes, I'll hold.


"Homeland: The Smile (#2.1)" (2012)
Carrie Mathison: ...then I moved to Calgary.
Major Joy Mendez: So what's the hockey team?
Carrie Mathison: Uh, I don't follow hockey.
Major Joy Mendez: You're from Calgary you follow hockey. It's the Flames.

Carrie Mathison: What do you want?
Danny Galvez: Estes needs to see you.
Carrie Mathison: Tell him to fuck off.


"Homeland: The Good Soldier (#1.6)" (2011)
Carrie Mathison: [Carrie and Brody are drunk] Oh, Jesus, we drank too much.
Nicholas Brody: Yeah, we did.
Carrie Mathison: Oh, I hope I don't puke.
Nicholas Brody: You're gonna puke?
Carrie Mathison: No.
Nicholas Brody: You all right?
Carrie Mathison: I'm half Irish.
Nicholas Brody: The Irish don't puke?
Carrie Mathison: Nah. Only when we have to salute the British.
[Carrie snorts with laughter]


"Homeland: The Clearing (#2.7)" (2012)
Carrie Mathison: Hi, Brody.
Nicholas Brody: How does my wife know about Tom Walker?
Carrie Mathison: I... I don't know.
Nicholas Brody: I'll tell you how. Mike Faber. How the fuck does he know? You tell me.
Carrie Mathison: Okay, Brody, calm down.
Nicholas Brody: You came to me, accusing me of lying about Gettysburg. Maybe it's you who's the one that's lying, hmm? Puttin' some bullshit on me.
Carrie Mathison: I'm not.
Nicholas Brody: Why should I believe you?
Carrie Mathison: I'll take care of Faber.
Nicholas Brody: How? How? Have you really got this under control? Because it doesn't seem like it. And what the fuck happened in that shop? How did you lose those six agents?
Carrie Mathison: We're investigating that.
Nicholas Brody: Great. So you're hedging, Roya's hedging. This thing is on, I'm at the center of it, and I'm in the fucking dark!


"Homeland: Beirut Is Back (#2.2)" (2012)
Carrie Mathison: [Saul and Estes question the validity of an asset's intel] It's not lost on me why people don't trust my judgment. Why you didn't even want me here.
Saul Berenson: Carrie...
Carrie Mathison: It's not fair, I know, for you to have to be the one to decide.
[Carrie starts to cry]
Carrie Mathison: It fucked me up, Saul. Being wrong about Brody, it really... it fucked me up. Because I have never been so sure... and so wrong. And it's that fact that I still can't get my head around. It makes me unable to trust my own thoughts. Every time I think I see something clearly now... it just disappears.
[Carrie takes a moment to calm down]
Carrie Mathison: We have a chance to get Abu Nazir.
Saul Berenson: I know you want to think that. I won't risk American lives on a hunch.
Carrie Mathison: And I would not ask you to. I recruited her, Saul, right here in this city. And it's been eight years. I know... I know a lot of things can change. But I helped her through an abusive domestic situation. I practically saved her life. And I remember... I remember knowing at the time... that one day... she would be ready to leave here... and when that time came, she would be on my side. Look, the... the way I am now, I wouldn't trust me, either. But the Carrie who recruited her... that one I believe.


"Homeland: Uh... Oh... Ah... (#3.2)" (2013)
Carrie Mathison: I'm not the one who got it wrong. I'm the only one who got it right.


"Homeland: Broken Hearts (#2.10)" (2012)
Carrie Mathison: You're never going to leave this country alive.
Abu Nazir: I know. And I don't care.
