Eric Weiss: [to Sydney] There's got to be something that you had that you just loved that it kills you that you don't have it anymore.
Lauren Reed: The risks you are describing have already been factored into our analysis. And as for SD-6, the Alliance doesn't exist anymore...
Sydney Bristow: Well, the only reason that SD-6 and the Alliance broke down is because Arvin Sloane, a man the White House pardoned by the way, wanted them to! So do me a favor and don't revise history that I lived through!
Michael Vaughn: All right, enough! Sark was an inch away from initiating a nuclear exchange, and that was only Phase One. Capturing Sark, while it might put a smile on my face, will do nothing to shut down the Covenant.
Jack Bristow: How was the first briefing with Lauren?
Sydney Bristow: [sarcastically] Wonderful.
Jack Bristow: I'm not asking because I'm a fan of inter-office gossip. Tell me how it went.
Sydney Bristow: All I know is the myth. You know, a women so ugly that if you looked at her you'd turn to stone.
Eric Weiss: Sounds like the myth of my college girlfriend.
Sydney Bristow: I haven't even asked anyone how they met.
Eric Weiss: Are you asking me? The NSC was wrapping up the case on your mom... uh, we were all deposed... Lauren was the one asking the questions. They hit it off.
Sydney Bristow: Was everyone there? Dixon? Marshall...?
Eric Weiss: Syd, she's a good person. I'm not trying to rub it in, butI... I don't want to be dishonest.
Lauren Reed: We need access to the bunker; Sloane can get it for us. If we can use him, I don't see why we...
Sydney Bristow: Maybe you haven't been lucky enough to have firsthand experience with that psychopath...
Michael Vaughn: She brokered his deal.
Sydney Bristow: What?
Lauren Reed: I was part of the team that arranged for Sloane's pardon.
Michael Vaughn: Look, none of us have any illusions about Sloane. The only reason he was given a pardon is because he provided us with intel that led to the destruction of terrorist cells...
Sydney Bristow: [to Sloane] You've made your obligations clear, now let me clarify mine. I am obliged to extract immeasurable pain from you the moment you are no longer a valuable source of intel for the CIA. Personally, I hope you don't help us out...
Arvin Sloane: Mr. Vaughn. You know, I remember how close you were with Sydney. I'm sure you share my relief in having her back.
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.
