Mission: Impossible II (2000) Poster

Tom Cruise: Ethan Hunt



  • Luther Stickell : [after getting off the helicopter and steps in sheep droppings]  Shit.

    Ethan Hunt : Yes it is

  • Ethan Hunt : You turned around.

    Nyah Nordoff-Hall : What are you going to do? Spank me?

  • Mission Commander Swanbeck : [during a breifing in Sevile, Spain]  Ms. Hall and Ambrose had a relationship which he took very seriously... she walked away and he's been wanting her back ever since. We believe she's our surest and quickest way of locating him.

    Ethan Hunt : And then what?

    Mission Commander Swanbeck : Make sure she continues to see him, gets him to confide in her, and report to you.

    Ethan Hunt : You made it sound as if I was recruiting her for her skills as a thief.

    Mission Commander Swanbeck : Well then I misled you, or you made the wrong assumption. Either way, we are asking her to resume her prior relationship - not do anything she hasn't already done... voluntarily, I might add.

    Ethan Hunt : No. She's got no training for this kind of thing.

    Mission Commander Swanbeck : What? To go to bed with a man and lie to him? She's a woman - she's got all the training she needs.

  • Mission Commander Swanbeck : [seeing and hearing his briefing through sunglasses and it's earpieces]  Good morning, Mr. Hunt. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves the recovery of a stolen item designated "Chimera." You may select any two team members, but it is essential that the third member of your team be Nyah Nordoff-Hall. She is a civilian, and a highly capable professional thief. You have forty-eight hours to recruit Miss Hall and meet me in Seville to receive your assignment. As always, should any member of your team be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow all knowledge of your actions. And Mr. Hunt, the next time you go on holiday, please be good enough to let us know where you're going. This message will self-destruct in five seconds.

    Ethan Hunt : [5 seconds before he throws the sunglasses in front of him]  I let you know where I'm going, I won't be on holiday.

  • Mission Commander Swanbeck : [during a breifing in Sevile, Spain]  You were under specific instructions to bring back a living sample of the Chimera virus. I'd be very interested to know how, after you'd managed its recovery intact, it subsequently got destroyed.

    Ethan Hunt : By fire. That's the best way, really.

  • [Nyah is standing right in front of Ethan] 

    Luther Stickell : [over radio]  Ethan, Nyah's in the building. Do you copy?

    Ethan Hunt : [dryly, into radio]  Thank you.

  • Ethan Hunt : [to Luther, after they learned how difficult and critical their mission will be]  We just rolled up a snowball and tossed it into hell. Now lets see what chance it has.

  • Dr. Nekhorvich : Well, I've heard...

    [takes off mask of Dr. Nekhorvich to reveal Ethan] 

    Ethan Hunt : ...all I need to hear.

  • Ethan Hunt : [to Nyah, after looking at his watch hiding behind a metal container]  We've got 19 hours and 57 minutes. I'll get Bellerophon into your system by then. Just stay alive. I'm not going to lose you.

  • Ethan Hunt : [to Luther, using an ear piece radio, while riding on his motorcycle as his being pursued by Sean and his men]  Clear the bridge for me.

  • [last lines] 

    Ethan Hunt : Let's get lost.

  • Ethan Hunt : after saving her from the door she was hanging on from the cliff below, now his sitting in the car Don't you think we should wait a decent interval?

    Nyah Nordoff-Hall : [sitting on top of him]  Who wants to be decent?
