Marcus Dixon Quotes

03x09 - Conscious Season 3 / Episode 9: - Conscious

NSC Director Robert Lindsey: Where's Sydney Bristow? You covered for her once, and it cost you your job. Do it again, this cell will be your home for the next 10 years.
Marcus Dixon: My lawyer's name is Shelly Bird.
NSC Director Robert Lindsey: Your only play here is to tell where Sydney Bristow is and who broke her out. Was it her father?
Marcus Dixon: What I know here is that sending agents to arrest me in front of my children is one of the last mistakes you'll ever make as Senior Director of the NSC. I've known men like you. Men who pretend to be patriots. You are always revealed.
03x09 - Conscious Season 3 / Episode 9: - Conscious

Sydney Bristow: [On Sydney's dream] I've never heard of a Saint Aidan.

Lauren Reed: Under authority of the National Security Council, Robert Lindsay has instructed me to relieve you of duty as director of this task force until he arrives to assume control.

03x02 - Succession Season 3 / Episode 2: - Succession

Marcus Dixon: [to Sydney] I want you to accompany the hostage rescue team.
Marshall Flinkman: Actually, I had an idea. Syd should go in as a biochem major. Harvard dropout, totally spoiled. Maybe she got kicked out because she was synthesizing ecstasy in her dorm room, or maybe crystal, crank...
Marcus Dixon: Fine
03x01 - The Two Season 3 / Episode 1: - The Two

Sydney: Where's my father? Or... or my mom... have you heard from her since Mexico City? Vaughn said Will's alive. If there was a fire in my apartment, if he thought I was dead, then how did Will survive? Where is he?
Marcus Dixon: Sydney...
Sydney: And Francie... is she dead? Did they find her body, too?
Marcus Dixon: I know you have a million questions, but...
Sydney: I have a lot more than a million questions! I which I only had a million questions!
02x20 - Countdown Season 2 / Episode 20: - Countdown

Michael Vaughn: You're saying that five hundred years ago Rambaldi drew the DNA profile of a man who's alive today?

Marcus Dixon: What's on the page?
N.S.A. Deputy Director Brandon: Times and dates, each marking an apocalyptic event.
02x20 - Countdown Season 2 / Episode 20: - Countdown

02x18 - Truth Takes Time Season 2 / Episode 18: - Truth Takes Time

Sydney Bristow: My mother's earrings. They found a note she left. She wanted me to have them. Just now, when my dad was telling me, the first thought I had was that she was dead, that she'd been killed. I had this whole thing in my head that she died proving herself a hero.
Marcus Dixon: No one can be blamed for trusting their own mother.
Sydney Bristow: I wish she had been killed.
02x16 - Firebomb Season 2 / Episode 16: - Firebomb

Marcus Dixon: I'm out.
Michael Vaughn: Sydney's in trouble.
Marcus Dixon: Respect my decision.
Michael Vaughn: I can't do that. Not when your decision may cost Sydney her life. You wouldn't tell Sydney how you infiltrated Kabir's so she found an alternate way in using what turned out to be faulty intel. She was captured and unless we find another confirmed access point, no one will be sent in to get her out.
02x16 - Firebomb Season 2 / Episode 16: - Firebomb

Marcus Dixon: [to Sydney] I can't judge you for not telling me about SD-6.
02x15 - A Free Agent Season 2 / Episode 15: - A Free Agent

Marcus Dixon: How long have you known?
Sydney Bristow: Two years. I wanted to tell you so many times, but I was ordered not to. The CIA had no way to verify what I knew in my heart was true... that you would never consider working for a man like Arvin Sloane.
Marcus Dixon: We were partners. You lied to me, then chose to tell me the truth when it was convenient for you. I never want to see you again.
02x13 - Phase One Season 2 / Episode 13: - Phase One

Marcus Dixon: No, this does not MAKE ANY SENSE!
Sydney Bristow: YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO ME! I can't go back there or they will kill me too! We need you to go into SD-6. We need you to hack into the system and make visible a hidden file, one that you would never see, never know was there. It's a code. A number that we need. If it's a match to one we already have, it will confirm the data and the CIA will raid SD-6 and every Alliance office! If you follow these instructions to get the code you will be in the core of the SD-6 computer network and you'll see... it's not CIA. It's Alliance. I'll wait for your e-mail but you need to hurry.
02x11 - A Higher Echelon Season 2 / Episode 11: - A Higher Echelon

SD-6 OpTech Agent: Someone has launched a denial of server attack on us. We're getting pinged over and over. It's slowing down the network.
Marcus Dixon: That's odd. They didn't spoof the origin IP. How can someone be smart enough to hack in here and forget to cover their tracks?
02x11 - A Higher Echelon Season 2 / Episode 11: - A Higher Echelon

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

Sydney Bristow: It is. It's your thing.

Marcus Dixon: Marshall, can you remember back to the Aconcagua operation? Sydney's code name?
Marshall Flinkman: Miss Bristow? It was, uh, Bluebird.
Marcus Dixon: Bluebird. So it wasn't Freelancer?
Marshall Flinkman: Freelancer? No, no, it was Bluebird. Definitely.
01x22 - Almost Thirty Years Season 1 / Episode 22: - Almost Thirty Years

Marcus Dixon: How am I supposed to know what you believe when you've been lying to me? I'm your partner!
Sydney: Just think about this for a minute. Just think about everything we've been through. Just think about who I am. Now, what I am going to ask you to do is just accept the fact that I cannot tell you what this is about. What I am doing is classified but Dixon... I swear to you that I am not betraying this country. I could never do that. You know that!
Marcus Dixon: I don't need rhetoric, Sydney. Right now, I need a reason not to report you to security section.
01x19 - Snowman Season 1 / Episode 19: - Snowman

Marcus Dixon: Noah, I'll be straight with you. I don't trust you. Which wouldn't be such a problem, except that I'm an intelligence officer and if you stick around, sooner or later, my life is going to be in your hands and yours in mine. And in that scenario, the only person truly safe will be you.
SD-6 Agent Grey: Mr. Sloane asked for you to come with us.
SD-6 Agent Noah Hicks: Well, that's never a good thing. Excuse me.

Marcus Dixon: What you are saying is that FTL no longer exist?
Marshall Flinkman: Uhm, sorry, stupid question but since FTL is, sorry, was our enemy for like ever, shouldn't we be drinking champagne?
