Best Alias quotes?


Oct 21, 2005
Like everyone else I have heaps of favourites. Here are two of them...

(From season 4)

Tamazaki - Have you had breakfast?

Sydney - Why? Do you want to grab something?

and ...

(From season 3)

Lauren - If you kill me, you'll never learn the truth.

Sydney - This is the truth. Sucks, doesn't it?

Indianapolis, IN
WEISS: Whooo. Impressive.
VAUGHN: (scoffs) Yeah.
WEISS: Balls of steel!
(Vaughn laughs.)
WEISS: No, that's what I'm gonna call you from now on. (to agent walking by) Hey. Have you met Balls of Steel?
Jul 2, 2005
I have SOOOOOOOO many favorites!
Here's just a few

Will: Yeah I'm 'ere. She's 'ere. We made it. *British accent*

Weiss: Don't poop where you sleep

Will: You have to accent was pretty good. It was like early stones
Sydney: I thought it was Austrialian?
Will: Shut up!

Vaughn: You're amazing
Sydney: I'm not amazing!

Sydney: My guardian angel.
Vaughn: I was just going to say the same to you. Thanks for the promotion
Sydney: You're welcome

Sydney: Raid my closet
Francie: Thanks...but I've got boobs

SOOOOO funny! :D


Aug 26, 2005
Canberra, Australia

Francie (to Sydney): "Have you ever spied on anyone?"

And from the same episode (1.4 'A Broken Heart')

Francie: "Hey, there he is. Start the car, start the car!"
SYD: "No, you wait 'till he’s a block away..."
FRANCIE: "Look at you, getting all into it!"
SYD: "Everyone knows you wait!"
FRANCIE: "I didn’t know you wait..."
SYD: "You wait."

I've actually got a notebook I bought only for Alias quotes :D But I haven't got it with me right now. So I'll write what I can remember.

Jack: Mr. Vaughn, you're young and you're eager, and I understand that. But one thing you're not, and this is something only time can provide, really... Is wise.

Sark: Good luck, Sydney.
Sydney: I don't need you to wish me luck, you son of a b****.
Sark: That's a wonderful attitude.

Sark: I'd offer you passage back to civilization, but my submersible only seats four.
Sydney: It's the thought that counts.

Sark: Do you feel comfortable trading priceless documents for a low-grade reporter?
Jack: You should read Tippin's stuff. It's not so bad.

Sydney: What can I say, sir... I'm not like other mums.

Sydney: Vaughn... It's bigger than I thought.

Lindsey: If you're finished... This is the men's room.
Sydney: Who let you in?

Marshall: That sound - You know that boom? That's my mind blowing.

Jack: Just so we're clear, you report this conversation and you'll never wear a hat again.

Syd: I just wanted to rip his finger right off. Does that make me a bad person?
Vaughn: No, but it might have blown your cover.

Irina: Tell me... Sydney. Who sent you here? You must tell me.
Sydney: Or what? I'm grounded?

Will: Hi, um, I don't know if I'm talking to the right person, but I need to borrow a million bucks. The Olsen twins went public, and I'm looking to invest.
Sydney: You'll need some collateral. I don't think you've got any.
Will: Well, have you seen my aqua blue Chevy?
Sydney: You mean, with the hula girl on the dash? Yes, sadly, we've seen that.

Vaughn: Sydney's life is worth the risk!
Jack: Not to Sydney! Taking them down is what gets her up in the morning. Or... Did you think it was those meetings she has with you?

Will: What's the paper on?
Sydney: It's a redo. Professor said it didn't have any soul, so I'm writing a paper with soul. It's got lots of soul!

Jack: Shepard killed Danny. I'm assuming you know that.
Sydney: If I hadn't, thank you for breaking it to me so gently.

Sloane: Marshall, would you please go back to work?
Marshall: Just to clarify, I'm not being fired?
Sloane: Back to work means not fired.

Sydney: Don't touch the fur. Alright, you may touch the fur. Once.

Marshall: Mr. Bristow, will you marry me?

Sydney: What'd they expect us to do, just drop and go at it on the floor?

Sydney: You're waltzing?
Vaughn: I've been practicing for our wedding.
Sydney: With whom?
Vaughn: Weiss.

Jack: Just because you have gotten comfortable with my daughter doesn't mean you can get comfortable with me.

NYC and Vancouver
a few more favourites:

1) "how was the first briefing with lauren?" "Wonderful! [said sarastically]" "I'm not asking because i'm a fan of interoffice gossip..."

2) Nadia-"She also has....." Agent-" assault rifle,12 gate shotgun, 4 handguns, 2 tasers and a...secret drawer of knives...lets start with the knives." Syd: "Lets start with you not wasting my time....

3) and OBVIOUSLY "we'll find each other....we always find each other."

I have practically a notebook full!

Shall I share?

Marshall: You know that sound--that boom--that's my mind blowing!
Marshall (to Syd at first of s3): I've lost my keys...where are they? It's a metaphor...

s1 "The Box" part two
Syd: You want me to do hands are pretty steady?
Vaughn: So are mine
*look at each other*

same epi
guy w/Cole: Almost done drilling!

Cole: Let's go to the conversation room
Cole: Don't make me open this box!

Vaughn: Okay...this is a charge of C-4. I can tell because it says C-4 everywhere.

I just watched this epi Sunday night on Fox. :) OH....Alias is a great show to give us laughs! HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA :D

Upland, CA
I've always loved this quote since Lindsay is one of those characters I've enjoyed hating:

Lindsay: If you're finished...this is the men's room...
Sydney: Who let you in?

Another favorite of mine towards Lauren :rolleyes: in the final episode of season 3:

Sydney: This is the truth. Sucks, doesn't it?
Mar 29, 2004

Sydney to Vaughn: I'm not gonna... say I understand... I'm not gonna sympathize with you and tell you how hard it must be for you... But... You wanna know how I am? I am horrible! Vaughn, I am ripped apart! And not because I lost you... but because... if it had been me... I would have waited... I would have found the truth... I wouldn't have given up on you! And know I realize... what... an absolute waste that would have been!

Sydney: Did I stutter?

Francie to Will: We're not putting chocolate chips in the waffles.
Will to Francie: Oh I've got news for you, yes we are.

Sydney: I've been having dreams, they're keeping me up at night.
Jack: Then take something.

Sydney to Danny: That guy was a sexist pig, I deserved a scholarship for that T-Shirt.

Sloane: It's a fair question....but one I'm not inclined to answer, unless you need me to explain the essential nature of confidentiality.
Sydney (staring him down unflinchingly, answering with much sarcasm): No, I'm all caught up on that, thanks.

Sydney (riled): Unacceptable...coming from you, that's almost funny.
Nadia (wanting to keep peace): Sydney, please...
Sydney (slowly walking toward Sloane until she's standing right in front of him): Do you really want to engage in a conversation about what is...and what is not...acceptable? Every day I work here, I see your face in briefings, I hear your voice in my ear during missions; you wanna know what that's like? It makes me sick to my stomach. Having to pretend the past never happened, that you're not the same... murderous, criminal sociopath you were three years ago...It makes me want to retch. If you want to talk unacceptable...that is unacceptable.
Sloane: I'd assumed that you had accepted the fact that I'd made amends for my past.
Sydney: Amends!? Francie and Danny are gone...and yet, here you are. And everywhere I look, I'm reminded of the man who killed them.

Sydney (leaning over the desk to make eye contact with Sloane): I want to make something clear: I will never forgive you for what you've done to the people I love. No amount of time or distance will ever change that. (pause as she stands straight again) I'll see you tomorrow.

...and so many more!!!

Aug 25, 2006
Sydney: (turns and sees Nisard) That’s him. How do you wanna play this? You want to be rough, or do you want me to be rough?

Vaughn: You’re always rough.

Sydney: No, I’m not.

Vaughn: Yes, you are.

Sydney: That’s not true.

Vaughn: Yes, it is.

Sydney: Are you talking about at home or on ops?

Vaughn: Both. Hey, I’m not complaining.

Sydney: If I’m rough it’s because you like it when I- Are we on comms?

Jack: (back at APO with Marshall) Yes, you’re both on comms, right now.
That was priceless.

That's my fav probably :D

In addition to all of the quotes written above;

"Only during surgery" Jack.

"There's no white light, not for people like you" Jack.

"Sydney can be very stubborn and where she got that from is anyone's guess." Jack

"I do eat you know" Jack

"There's only one way for you to get an idea about my nocturnal habits but somehow I think we would both prefer the torture" Jack

"Do I have visions of Lauren?" Jack

"Just so we're clear; you report this conversation, you'll never wear a hat again" Jack

"You're right, I'm not going to help you.Since this is the last conversation we will ever have, I want to make this perfectly clear. What you have done to my daughter is nothing compared to what I will do when I find yours. Salut." Jack.

"Well then we're screwed -not an unfamiliar situation.-" Jack

"Welcome to the family" (and the whole conversation before) Jack

"I don't know if it's any comfort to you but there wasn't a day I didn't regret what I did." Jack

"Stop being as stubborn as I am" Irina

"When the time came for my escape, it was painful because my love for you, for your father, was not a contrivance." Irina

"You know technically we may still be husband and wife." Irina

"You know me. I love games." Irina

"I would offer to go first but I wouldn't want to be accused of trying to escape". Irina

"Ultimately you'll do what you want. That's what the free will's about" Irina

"I don't have the advantage of observing common behavior.. I'm curious." Irina

"How do you thank the woman that killed your father?" Irina

"Let her go. Play with me instead" Irina

"You don't need to know. You want to know. There's a difference." Irina

"I did cooperate Mr. Kendall. -You- didn't listen" Irina

"I said I'd find out -if- there's an overlap" Irina

"I'd say either you're setting me up to be killed or I underestimated your love for your wife." Irina

"You may need to think yourself as an honourable husband, a father figure but I won't ever see that man in you which frankly is why we have this agreement. Never talk to me about your love for Sydney again." Irina

"You're too forgiving Sydney. Don't pretend I'm something I'm not. I've never been a real mother to you and you don't owe me a second chance." Irina

"Thus far, I've agreeed to be debriefed only by Sydney. From now on I'm willing to talk to you, too" Irina

"Jack I understand why you believed you had to kill me but the truth is if the situation had been reverse I would have found another way." Irina

"What did you tell my husband about the horizon?" Irina

Two of my favourites :D


In a briefing -

Weiss (asking the rest of the room): "Ok, does everyone here speak science?"

Marshall: "Yeah!"

Weiss: "No, Marshall, they don’t."

Season three

Sydney: You know, peach isn’t really in this season.

Vaughn: I heard peach was the new green.

Sydney: I thought beige was the new green.

Vaughn: No, beige is the new peach.

Sydney: Oh, okay.

Vaughn: You’ve got a lot of reading to do.

Classic stuff :LOL:

North Carolina
Vaughn:look, if i'm not back in a couple of hours, i'm probably dead
Weiss:good to know

McKenas Cole: Dear Person, beating up my men
McKenas: You're the bad ass that's been beating up my men?!

Dixon:Listen, while you're grabbing the Rambaldi manuscript, if you happen to see a sandwich...
Sydney: you got it

Sloane: Marshall, would you please go back to work
Marshall:Just to clarify, I'm not being fired?
Sloane: Back to work means not fired.

Sydney: How do I look?
Marcus Dixon: For the record, that's a question you never have to ask.

[Katya kisses Jack]
Katya Derevko: That was from Irina.
Jack: Okay.
[Katya plants a hot and heavy kiss on Jack]
Jack: And *who* was that from?
Katya Derevko: You ask too many questions.

Sydney: [talking to Sloane] The thought that I did something for you that might give you a warm and fuzzy feeling makes me want to kick my own sister out of my house.

[singing his son to sleep]
Agent Marshall Flinkman: Hush... hush... hush little Mitchell, don't you cry. Daddy's here to teach you about Lanthanides. Cerium is first, yes it leads the way. Hexagonal structure and it's iron gray. Praseodymium is next and it looks like brass...

[Marshall has to infiltrate a German nightclub; he is communicating with Sydney with an earpiece]
Agent Marshall Flinkman: Okay, I'm in. Now what do I do?
Sydney: What do you see?
Agent Marshall Flinkman: Well, a lot of people who are into spanking, apparently.
[a random woman grabs him and kisses him]
Agent Marshall Flinkman: Oh my god, I think I just got hepatitis.

Agent Marshall Flinkman: [to Jack, randomly and smugly in the middle of an intense op] Vaughn asked me to lunch.

Suit and Glasses: [leaning over Sydney, who is cuffed to a chair] I'd rather not make this too painful.
Sydney: Me too. Thanks. Glad we're on the same page. That's good.

Dec 14, 2006
(Vaughn to Sydney): “This watch belonged to my father. It's broken now, but it used to keep perfect time. And when he gave it to me, he said, “You could set your heart by this watch.” It stopped October 1st - the day we met.”
Aug 7, 2006
Southern California
Nadia: "You're talking to your dead daughter. It seems an odd time to question your sanity."

Sydney: [talking to Sloane] "The thought that I did something for you that might give you a warm and fuzzy feeling makes me want to kick my own sister out of my house."

Nadia: "Anna can try and tear us apart. To make some ridiculous preditction come true. But we're together now."

The bit that really gets me is in "Before the Flood" when Zombi-Nadia is stalking around Syndey.
Jack: Take her out, Sydney.
Sydney: Dad, no. She's my sister.
Irina: Sydney, listen to me. She's not your sister anymore."
