Nikita: [voice-over] My name is Nikita. Six years ago, I was taken out of prison and forced by a covert unit of the government to be an assassin. Three years ago I escaped, and have been hunted ever since. I was the first recruit to get out. I'm going to make certain I'm not the last.
Gary: Nikita, baby, that was ten years ago.
Nikita: It was eleven, I'm 27 now. And if you call me baby again, I'll break something else.
Nikita: I had just turned 18, so that were able to charge me with murder one. I was sentenced to die by lethal injection.
Gary: No friggin' way!
Nikita: Trust me, you'll wanna save your "no friggin' way" for the next part...
John Fleder: Hey, you work for us, remember that.
Percy: I work for whoever happens to be sitting in your chair. That person tends to come and go.
Nikita: I want you to know I can get to you and hit you where it hurts the most.
Percy: My feelings?
Nikita: Your funding.
