Sitater:
Tom Bishop: Fuck your rules, Nathan. Nathan Muir: Okay, but tonight they saved your life.

Tom Bishop: Happy Birthday, Nathan. Did you know Langley has seven different birth dates for you? Nathan Muir: And they're all wrong. Tom Bishop: I know, believe me, it wasn't easy. KGB, Mossad, also wrong. Fortunately I was well trained.

Tom Bishop: I thought spies drank martinis. Nathan Muir: Scotch, never less than twelve years old. Tom Bishop: Is that right? Agency rules? Nathan Muir: My rules.

Tom Bishop: Central Intelligence? Nathan Muir: You'd be working for me. Mostly undercover.

Nathan Muir: Technology gets better everyday. That's fine. But most of the time all you need is a stick of gum, a pocket knife and a smile.

Tom Bishop: All right, so what else? What else do I need to know? Nathan Muir: Put away some money so you can die someplace warm and don't ever touch it. Not for anyone, ever. Tom Bishop: Okay, is that it? Nathan Muir: Don't *ever* risk your life for an asset. If it comes down to you or them... send flowers.
