    We got a couple more Classic Jack Quotes from the finale to smile about over the long haitus.

    "Is this in retaliation for my taking your parking space?"

    " I'm not cut out for management anyway."

    Here are a few more that I recall from episodes past:

    "Did we switch handlers, or is this a special occasion?"

    "Tell anyone about this conversation, and you will never wear a hat again."

    "I've thought of a number of ways [to do this] . . . they all end in your burial."

    And here's one we'll never hear, but should: "No daughter of mine is going out dressed like that!"

    Long live Quotable Jack! :D What are some of your favorites?

    Actually, that's

    "So what is this? Retribution for me taking your parking space?"

    I had to transcribe it exactly for my column. :D

    There's also:

    "Now you're mocking me." "Yes." (Jack says more with "yes" than most people do with a paragraph.)

    My favorites (from my season 2 quote compilation for the look back; you'll have to wait for season 1):

    There is one way for you to verify if my nocturnal activities are a security risk, Miss Kane, but somehow I think we’d both prefer the torture. ~ Jack, "The Abduction"

    When I look at her, when I look at the little girl who raised herself to become one of the most extraordinary human beings and one of the finest agents I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing, I see only the promise of my own redemption. ~ Jack, "Salvation"

    Your consistent shortcoming . . . is your naïve sense of morality. Evil must be eliminated by any means necessary. ~ Jack to Vaughn, "The Indicator"

    Of course we have no choice. It’s a moment I never wanted you to face--to kill someone. I’m not talking about self-defense; I’m talking about premeditated murder--to be there when the door closes on him for the last time--knowing you are responsible. That is something you never same close to considering before getting to know your mother. ~ Jack, "Counteragent"

    Jack: I know what you’re thinking.
    Irina: Do you?
    Jack: Toaster.
    "Passage P2"

    Jack: I’ve been doing this a long time, so when you lectured me about continuing the mission--
    Sydney: Dad, my point was--
    Jack: I know what your point was and the truth is, I needed to hear it. I’m proud of you, that’s all.
    "Passage P2"

    In our line of work we can’t just cry foul when things don’t go our way. ~ Jack, "The Abduction"

    Legally he’s right. Ethically he’s an ass. ~ Jack, "A Free Agent"

    Sydney can be stubborn. Where she got that from is anyone's guess. ~ Jack, "A Dark Turn"

    And just because you’ve gotten comfortable with my daughter doesn’t mean you should be comfortable with me. ~ Jack, "Endgame"

    lol...he's never say that, esp. with all the things syd wears for her missions

    "There is one way for you to verify if my nocturnal activities are a security risk, Miss Kane, but somehow I think we’d both prefer the torture. ~ Jack, "The Abduction"

    Found another one I'd almost forgotten" Did curiosity get the better of you, or were you trying to impress my daughter?"

    Why is it that so many of Jack's best quotes come from his dealings with Vaughn? :LOL:
