Michael Vaughn: I know, but the DNA sequencing, the heart size. I mean, they both match with what Rambaldi wrote. Either this thing is completely insane... or it isn't.
Eric Weiss: Okay, what happened? The FBI's involved?
Michael Vaughn: Yeah. There's an FBI tribunal flying in from DC. They're going to question her and decide what the next move is.
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: How did you come to work with the CIA?
Sydney Bristow: Don't you already have a file on me?
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: We would like this in your words.
Sydney Bristow: The truth is, I didn't love any of the subjects I was studying. My father and I weren't speaking, my mother had died when I was six and the highlight of my social life was my dorm's salad bar. So, I called them.
Sydney Bristow: They didn't use that name. These men led me to believe they were CIA. They were very convincing. They are very convincing.
Michael Vaughn: You're saying that Sydney could be held long enough to blow her cover with SD-6?
Jack Bristow: Under directive 81A, they could conceivably hold her without trial or charges for the rest of her life.
C.I.A. Agent Steven Haladki: I think your judgment is impaired.
Michael Vaughn: I think I'm going to kick your ass.
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: What does "SD" stand for?
Sydney Bristow: Section Disparu - the section that doesn't exist. Alain Christophe, one of the Alliance founders. The term was his.
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: Explain to us about the Alliance of Twelve?
Sydney Bristow: The Alliance is like a board of directors. Some are from the private sector, but most are former intelligence officers. All wealthy. They started a company together, except this company - the Alliance - trades intelligence.
Michael Vaughn: According to Rambaldi, the woman in question, the subject of this prophecy, will have never seen Mt. Subasio. Meaning if Sydney were to go there and see it herself.
Jack Bristow: She couldn't possibly be the woman Rambaldi was talking about.
Michael Vaughn: That makes sense, doesn't it? I thought that made sense.
Jack Bristow: [to Haladki] I have no desire to blow your head off, or ruin your paint job, but I will do both unless you tell me where the hell Sydney Bristow is
Jack Bristow: [to Haladki] Just so we're clear: you report this conversation, and you'll never wear a hat again.
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: What can you tell me about him?
Sydney Bristow: Milo Rambaldi was Pope Alexander VI's chief architect. He was an artist, an inventor. His designs were so technologically advanced, at the time, they thought he was heretic. And he was executed. Now, five hundred years later, many believe he was a prophet. And SD-6, CIA, GRU, K-Directorate, the entire intelligence world, is on a Rambaldi scavenger hunt.
Sydney Bristow: They assume that Rambaldi had some sort of master plan.
Sydney Bristow: You didn't think about it. Not once. The possibility that Rambaldi could be right about me.
Michael Vaughn: No. I didn't.
Sydney Bristow: Why not?
Michael Vaughn: Because I believe in you. Do you think I'd just throw anyone in my trunk?
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: So you have a hard time keeping secrets.
Sydney Bristow: No, I don't have a hard time keeping a secret. What I don't enjoy is lying to my friends, or being in a constant state of jet-lag from flying to far corners of the world for a man I wish were dead.
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: [during Sydney's interrogation] What did they tell you was the objective of SD-6?
Sydney Bristow: The retrieval of intelligence both military and industrial throughout the world that is critical to the superiority and survival of the United States of America... it's a company line.
Eric Weiss: This buddy of mine from Princeton says she actually knows Haladki, used to have lunch at the Webster Rotunda, apparently the guy's got the table manners of a 6 month old.
Sydney Bristow: Governments, corporations, wealthy citizens, families, it's all black market; it's organized crime.
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: And after she died, your father raised you? Is that right?
Sydney Bristow: No. He hired a nanny.
Michael Vaughn: Either this thing is completely insane... or it isn't.
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: And at this time, you believed that SD-6 was affiliated with the CIA?
Sydney Bristow: Yes, that's right. That it was a black ops division of the CIA.
F.B.I. Asst. Director Kendall: Meaning...
Sydney Bristow: You mean what is black ops? A division that is funded by the CIA's black budget. Operations that are highly classified, even hidden from congressional oversight. They led me to believe that SD-6 was one of these divisions and that that was why they didn't operate through Langley.
