Alias (TV Series 2001–2006) Poster


Jennifer Garner: Sydney Bristow, Anna Espinosa



  • [to Vaughn] 

    Sydney : We'll find each other... we'll always find each other.

  • Sydney : You've lost weight.

    Agent Eric Weiss : Yeah, I stopped eating all the foods I like. I'm miserable, but I look really good.

  • Sydney : Weiss, have you seen Vaughn?

    Weiss : That's all I am to you - just a conduit to Vaughn. Have you ever seen Vaughn and said "Hey, where's Weiss?"

  • Sydney : Is something wrong?

    Vaughn : No. I'm just getting old, I guess.

    Sydney : You expect me to believe that?

    Vaughn : I've just had a lot on my mind lately, that's all. It'll pass.

    Sydney : Yesterday was the day, wasn't it? The anniversary of your father's death?

    Vaughn : How could you remember that?

    Sydney : I remember what missing him does to you.

  • Vaughn : I'm going to say something, and it will either be obvious to you or seem presumptuous, either way I'm going to say it. This isn't working. I've been thinking about this for a while, I don't know what the hell to do.

    Sydney : What?

    Vaughn : I think you know what.

    Sydney : I need you to tell me.

    Vaughn : You need me to tell you what, that when you're on operations I can't sleep at night, that when we're in debrief I have to force myself to remember what the hell we're supposed to be reviewing when all I want to do is kiss you.

    Sydney : Sometimes it is hard to remember what we're supposed to be talking about.

    Vaughn : That's what I'm talking about, and the thing that drives me insane every day is that the people who would kill us if we were ever seen together-the Alliance, SD-6, Sloane, are the very forces that brought you into my life. What kind of a sick joke is that?

    Sydney : So what are you thinking, that maybe we shouldn't be working together?

    Vaughn : Yes, that was what I was thinking, but we're great together, and the more we work together the sooner the Alliance gets destroyed.

    Sydney : So, what are you suggesting?

    [Agent Weiss interrupts] 

  • Sydney : Vaughn?

    Vaughn : How come you never call me Michael?

    Sydney : I call you Michael sometimes.


    Sydney : Vaughn.

  • Agent Marshall Flinkman : Syd, this guy buried you alive.

    Sydney : Yeah, but he cheated, he hit me with a car first!

  • Vaughn : 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.

    Sydney : Me too.

  • [Sydney and Marshall have just talked their way past a security post] 

    Sydney : What did you say to him?

    Agent Marshall Flinkman : [nervous]  I don't know. I think it was "Go away I can smell you from here" in Ewok.

  • Vaughn : Are you romantically interested in anyone?

    [She looks at him weirdly] 

    Vaughn : It could be a question.

    Sydney : No, I'm not.

    [Machine jumps to 56] 

    Vaughn : Interesting.

    Sydney : Wait, ask me that again.

    Vaughn : No, I don't have to. We have our answer right here. That's very good. Moving on.

  • Sark : Put the gun down, Agent Vaughn. Drop the gun.

    Vaughn : Not a chance, you drop yours.

    Sark : Put the gun down now.

    Sydney : No, Vaughn, don't!

    Sark : Drop it. If you love her, you will put the gun down now.

    [Masked figure looks at Vaughn] 

    Sydney : Vaughn, don't!

    [Vaughn drops the gun] 

  • Sydney : Hi. How did you find me?

    Vaughn : You told me a couple of months ago that when you feel the need to disappear, you go to the observatory. But the observatory was closed. And then I remembered you said the pier calms you down. But you weren't there. And you weren't at the bluffs and the palisades, either.

    Sydney : You didn't really go to all those places.

    Vaughn : Yeah, I did. And then I remembered you liked the train station, too. Normal people going to their normal jobs.

    Sydney : I can't believe you remember that.

  • Agent Jack Bristow : Any complications?

    Sydney : Well, I think I lost us about $900,000, depending on the exchange rate...

  • Francie : "Dear Aunt Stephanie. Unfortunately, as my mother has informed you, the wedding is off so I am returning your kind gift of a coffee maker because, as it turns out, the man to whom I was engaged is a deceitful, two-faced, sex-crazed jackass. All my love, Francie."

    Sydney : It's not too harsh.

  • Sydney : What about Will?

    Agent Jack Bristow : [turns to Will]  You're gonna have a hard time.

  • Sydney : You didn't think about it. Not once. The possibility that Rambaldi could be right about me.

    Vaughn : No. I didn't.

    Sydney : Why not?

    Vaughn : Because I believe in you. Do you think I'd just throw anyone in my trunk?

  • Sydney : [after Vaughn kisses her]  Dinner's ready.

    Vaughn : You do have an oven you know, we can reheat.

  • [Sydney and Vaughn are returning to the US from a mission in Russia] 

    Vaughn : You know, we have operational command of this aircraft. The pilot could take us anywhere we want...

    Sydney : [playfully scolding]  Our orders are to proceed with our extraction. If we were divert this aircraft for our personal use, we would get into a lot of trouble.

    Vaughn : Yes.

    Sydney : [disappointed]  Yeah...

    Vaughn : Wanna have dinner with me in Paris?

    Sydney : [without hesitating]  Absolutely.

    [they kiss] 

  • Sydney : You know any jokes? Because I could use one.

    Vaughn : This grasshopper walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Hey, we have a drink named after you." And the grasshopper says...

    Sydney : You have a drink named Doug?

    Vaughn : Well, I was gonna use Phil.

  • Irina : [Sydney is confronted by her mother for the first time since she was six]  I've waited almost thirty years for this... You must have known this day would come. I could have prevented all this, of course... You were so small when you were born. It would have been so easy... Tell me... Sydney... Who sent you here? You must tell me.

    Sydney : Or what? I'm grounded?

    [Irina shoots Sydney in the shoulder] 

    Irina : Tell you what. Think about it. I'll come back and ask you again.

  • Rachel Gibson : Your father is kind of scary.

    Sydney : Tell me about it.

  • Will : Who would live a double life like that?

    Sydney : There are people.

  • [discussing Will's hickey] 

    Will : It's very embarrassing.

    Sydney : What, the fact that I saw it or just that it's there at all?

    Will : Look at it. I feel like I'm 15 years old.

    Sydney : That's about the age of your intern.

  • Will : You awkward?

    Sydney : Yeah, small eyes and big teeth, and I was always a foot taller than everybody else so I kind of hunched over.

    Will : I wish I could've seen that.

  • Sark : Good luck.

    Sydney : I don't need luck from you, you son of a bitch.

    Sark : Wonderful attitude.

  • Sydney : Some people go miniature golfing with their parents. We go to India to look for nukes.

  • Marcus Dixon : Listen, while you're grabbing the Rambaldi manuscript, if you happen to see a sandwich...

    Sydney : You got it.

  • Vaughn : I've... I've got this aunt, umm, Aunt Trish. She's the insane one in the family. She uh speaks to the dead, goes to readings, uh, she's a crop circle worshipper.

    Sydney : Aunt Trish

    Vaughn : Yeah. This whole Rambaldi thing reminds me of something she would tell me about.

  • Vaughn : You just threw your pager into the Pacific.

    Sydney : I know.

  • [Sydney's pager beeps] 

    Will : You can just say good guys or bad guys.

    Sydney : Neither, my father.

  • Vaughn : So, I was thinking, later tonight when we get the code key, maybe we can check it out?

    Sydney : What, the restaurant?

    Vaughn : Yeah. Well, it's almost too good not to.

    Sydney : Unless SD-6 spots us there and has us killed.

    Vaughn : Well, the food's so good it's almost worth the risk.

  • Sloane : You know, we should dance.

    Sydney : Like hell.

  • Sydney : [while following Francie's boyfriend, Francie starts the car immediately after he leaves his house]  No, wait until he's a block away.

    Francie : Look at you getting all into it!

    Sydney : [embarrassed]  Everyone knows you wait.

    Francie : I didn't know you wait.

    Sydney : You wait.

  • Agent Jack Bristow : How was the first briefing with Lauren?

    Sydney : [sarcastically]  Wonderful.

    Agent Jack Bristow : I'm not asking because I'm a fan of inter-office gossip. Tell me how it went.

  • Sydney : What if whatever we're looking for isn't metal?

    Agent Jack Bristow : Then we're screwed. Not an unfamiliar situation.

  • Sydney : I'm writing a paper with soul. It's got lots of soul.

  • Sydney : How do I look?

    Marcus Dixon : For the record, that's a question you never have to ask.

  • 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.

  • Sydney : [to Vaughn]  There's something that happens when you discover the truth about someone. I know a little about this. The truth changes everything. There's this woman, a personality, like a collage I've put together from the photographs, the few memories I have, the scraps of stories I've heard, the clothes of hers I've got, her books. And none of its real. She wasn't that woman at all, she was - she was a horrible person... Who killed you father... Vaughn, I just wanted to say... that I'm so sorry.

  • Sydney : What are you, twelve years old?

  • Sydney : Those men died for no reason.

    Vaughn : No. Those men died for their country.

  • Sydney : Why are you looking at me like that? Did you guys break something of mine?

  • Sydney : I just wanted to rip his finger right off again. Does that make me a bad person?

  • Sydney : My name is Sydney Bristow. Seven years ago I was recruited by a secret branch of the CIA called SD-6. I was sworn to secrecy, but I couldn't keep it from my fianc". And when the head of SD-6 found out, he had him killed. That's when I learned the truth: SD-6 is not part of the CIA. I've been working for the very people I thought I was fighting against. So, I went to the only place that could help me take them down. Now I'm a double agent for the CIA, where my handler is a man named Michael Vaughn. Only one other person knows the truth about what I do, another double agent inside SD-6. Someone I hardly know - my father.

  • Sydney : Well, go ahead and raid my closet.

    Francie : Thanks... but I've got boobs.

  • Sydney : I'm gonna shoot you with adrenaline - we have got to run.

    Vaughn : No. Don't do that.

  • Marcus Dixon : [shouting]  Are you ready to party?

    Sydney : Are you ready to party?

    Marcus Dixon : I speak nine languages. Techno is not one of them.

  • [an alarm will go off in 15 seconds if set off] 

    Vaughn : So you said you could disarm it in under 20 seconds, how far under 20?

    Sydney : I work better under pressure.

  • Vaughn : Noah Hicks - you mentioned him in the initial background report you wrote when you first made contact with the CIA.

    Sydney : We met when I was a trainee. We actually dated for a while.

    Vaughn : Really.

    Sydney : We kept it under the radar. SD-6 discourages, you know, fraternization among agents.

    Vaughn : So does the CIA.

  • NSC Director Robert Lindsey : If you're finished, this is the men's room.

    Sydney : Who let you in?

  • Sydney : [about Allison/Francie]  Why didn't she kill me?

    Weiss : Maybe she likes you.

    Sydney : Weiss, I'm serious.

    Weiss : So am I! Come on. She lived with you for months. She doubled herself as your best friend. Maybe in that time, she started to like you. I could see that happening.

  • [about Vaughn] 

    Sydney : After 30 years, you're still haunted by your wife's betrayal. Will it be the same for him?

    Jack : Absolutely.

  • Irina : [Irina, Sydney, and Jack are walking through a mine field]  So, Sydney, how's school?

    Sydney : I'm working on my dissertation. Supposedly.

  • Irina : I'll tell you what you need to know.

    Sydney : Get off the ledge NOW!

    Irina : Sloane believes he's been chosen to realize the word of Rambaldi. But you, too, have been chosen.

    Sydney : If you think I'm bluffing...

    Irina : It's you in the prophecy, Sydney, not me. Only you can stop him. Good luck, sweetheart.

    Sydney : Get down now!

    Irina : I love you.

  • Sydney : Is that a hickey?

  • 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.

  • Kazu Tamazaki : [preparing to torture Sydney]  Did you eat breakfast?

    Sydney : Why? You wanna grab something?

  • Sydney : My name is Sydney Bristow. I've seen you in the office. I always wondered what you did. Aah. I guess this is what you do.

  • Sydney : Amazing idea.

    Vaughn : Thank you. I know.

  • Sydney : Why does that guy have such a guilty look on his face?

    Francie : Yesterday, Ginger told Rod that Gavin was Ruby's pimp, but Rod didn't even know that Ruby was a prostitute...

    Sydney : Who's Gavin?

    Francie : Ruby's father.

    Sydney : Ew.

  • Sydney : This is ridiculous, let's just get the son of a bitch.

  • [repeated lines of Sydney's contact code] 

    Sydney : [answering a phone]  Hello?

    Person on Phone : Joey's Pizza?

    Sydney : Wrong number.

  • Sydney : The highlight of my social-life was my dorms salad-bar.

  • Sydney : Your dancers... suck.

  • Sakkoulas : Ah, you are American.

    Sydney : That's right. God bless America.

  • Sydney : OK so you're acting really freaky.

  • Sark : You know it's a pity we're traveling separately. We could've used the opportunity to get to know each other better.

    Sydney : Yeah, I'm broken up about that too.

    Sark : You're surprisingly adept at keeping your curiosity in check.

    Sydney : Don't flatter yourself.

  • Sydney : The idea that the CIA is willing to work with Irina Derevko is insane.

    Agent Jack Bristow : Worse, it's naive. Your mother didn't just conveniently turn herself in. This is all part of the manipulation.

    Sydney : Well, she's their problem now. She's not yours. And she's not mine.

    [When putting on her jacket, she winces a little bit] 

    Agent Jack Bristow : You okay?

    Sydney : My shoulder's healing, if that's what you mean.

    Agent Jack Bristow : It's not, actually.

  • Sydney : I don't support the death penalty. I but I hope she dies for all that she has done. I really do.

  • Vaughn : Respectfully Syd, I don't think your father can think clearly where your mother is concerned.

    Sydney : And you can?

    Vaughn : I'm trying and she has nothing to gain by lying.

  • Sydney : Dad, we need to get moving.

    Agent Jack Bristow : I know. I'm just preparing myself to let Irina out.

  • Sydney : Call waiting for spies.

  • Noah Hicks : I told you to meet me in San Pedro.

    Sydney : I never got a letter.

    Noah Hicks : I didn't send you a letter. I wasn't allowed to discuss my reassignment. I encoded a message in a junk e-mail. You should've been able to pick it up from the subject line.

    Sydney : I always set my computer to filter out junk e-mail.

  • Sydney : I fought myself. I killed myself.

  • Sydney : I thought you'd be home by now.

    Jack : I was about to say the same to you. The plasma charge, it's in our hands.

    Sydney : Sark isn't... the Covenant.

    Jack : Have you had dinner? If memory serves, you always liked Mitchellis.

    Sydney : I haven't eaten there since I was eight.

    Jack : I do eat, you know.

    Sydney : I'd like that, actually.

  • McKenas Cole : Welcome, Miss Thorne. The work you'll be doing for us requires a certain commitment.

    Sydney : [brainwashed as Miss Thorne]  Of course.

    McKenas Cole : Who this man is, is not important. What is important is this knife on the table. Use it. Kill this unimportant man.

  • Sydney : Last chance to bail out.

    Will : What, are you kidding me? I love this stuff.

  • Will : Syd, you've been going over this since the beginning of time. You'll figure it out.

    Sydney : What makes you say that?

    Will : Because you're you.

  • Sydney : Dad... I'm going to find her. I have to.

    Agent Jack Bristow : Searching for that woman will accomplish nothing! No good can come from it!

    Sydney : I need to know where she is.

    Agent Jack Bristow : Sydney, we don't even know if she's still alive!

    Sydney : I know

    Agent Jack Bristow : Even if she is, it doesn't change what she did!

    Sydney : Dad, I know!

    Agent Jack Bristow : Do you expect her just to say..."I'm sorry"?

    Sydney : I don't know what to expect!

    Agent Jack Bristow : Well, you better know exactly what to expect!... What could she ever say... that would satisfy you?

  • Sydney : I'm not like other mums.

  • Sydney : [sing-song]  I'm going shoppin'.

  • Weiss : Will he ever open his eyes?

    Marshall : Babies sleep, Weiss, you know. That's what they do, except when they're screaming. Last night, from midnight to six.

    Sydney : He's gorgeous, Marshall.

    Marshall : Thanks.
