Morrissey: [reading Nick's record] Never been married, parents both deceased... the guy's got a few friends, but not real close to any of them. Not exactly a workaholic, either. He kind of plays it fast and loose.

David Jenkins: I've dealt with people like this before. No close personal ties, no strong political beliefs, no particular interests... in fact, when you think about it, the man has the perfect profile. He was invisible *before* he was invisible.

David Jenkins: Perhaps a small reminder of the state of things is in order. I'm the one who kills people, Warren, not you. And if you screw up with me, I will cut off your testicles, I will lightly fry them, and Morrissey here...

[indicates Morrissey]

David Jenkins: Will have them for lunch.

David Jenkins: [realizing Nick is in the room] Welcome. I often sit here like this at the end of the day in darkness and imagine what it must be like. Where you conscious when it happened? Did you feel yourself change? Did you pray?

Nick Halloway: [narrating] I was a fugitive, afraid of getting caught. I kept imagining Jenkins leaping out at me from every dark corner. As a child, I would dream about being invisible. I thought it would be so easy. I could do what I want, go where I want and take what I want. But that's the catch. No matter how hungry I was, I couldn't give myself away.

David Jenkins: Listen to what we're offering you.

Nick Halloway: In exchange for what?

David Jenkins: For your services, of course, to your country. You have a wider obligation now. You can be of immeasurable value to us.

Nick Halloway: I'm not doing your spying.

David Jenkins: Suppose we'd had you, an invisible agent in 1939. Maybe there wouldn't have been a second World War.

Nick Halloway: What are you saying? You mean I would've killed Hitler for you?

David Jenkins: I mean maybe you could've saved thirty million lives. Changed history. Now, assassination, anything at all, is entirely ethical if you're on the right side.

Nick Halloway: Now you listen to me, you son of a bitch. I've lost everything, but my soul, and you're not gonna take that away from me. Whatever I become, it's gonna be my choice, not yours. Is that clear?

David Jenkins: Listen, we're prepared to give you anything you want. Everything you need. But you have to understand, if you won't work with us, I can't let you live.

Nick Halloway: [puts Jenkins in a choke hold] I don't sleep well. I can see through my eyelids, I can see through the top of my head. I get walleyed. I get bat-shit!
