Memorable Moments


  • Sydney: I am through letting Arvin Sloane control my life and I don't need your approval to resign. I told you as a courtesy.
Kendall: Well, then I will pay you the courtesy of informing you that if you leave this agency, you forfeit the clearance to see your mother.
Sydney: What? Are you blackmailing me?
Kendall: Civilians aren't authorised to be in this facility, let alone have access to a terrorist that we can't even acknowledge is in our custody. In or out, kiddo. Can't have it both ways.
(Kendall walks away)
Jack: (to Sydney) Legally, he's right. Ethically, he's an ass.
