The Blacklist

For decades, ex-government agent Raymond "Red" Reddington has been one of the FBI's Most Wanted fugitives after brokering deals for criminals across the globe. Now, he's mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth "Liz" Keen, an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico.

02x22 - Tom Connolly Season 2 / Episode 22: - Tom Connolly

Elizabeth Keen: If I run, it'll only make me look guilty. I'll be playing right into their hands.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: You're already in their hands. The only they haven't done is close their fist.
02x22 - Tom Connolly Season 2 / Episode 22: - Tom Connolly

Elizabeth Keen: I know you think you care about me. But, every time you do something that makes me think you really do, you do something else that reminds me that you simply aren't capable of it.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I'm a sin eater. I absorb the misdeeds of others, darkening my soul to keep theirs pure. *That* is what I'm capable of.
02x22 - Tom Connolly Season 2 / Episode 22: - Tom Connolly

Elizabeth Keen: Turn. Up there. On the right.
Tom Keen: Yeah, I see him.
Elizabeth Keen: You're losing him!
Tom Keen: Are you honestly telling me how to drive right now?
Elizabeth Keen: Yes! I'm not the one who hit a deer on the turnpike.
Tom Keen: That was not deer blood on the windshield.
02x22 - Tom Connolly Season 2 / Episode 22: - Tom Connolly

Tom Keen: [Sees Liz put his gun in the back of her waistband] Is that a gun, or are you just happy to see me?
02x22 - Tom Connolly Season 2 / Episode 22: - Tom Connolly

Donald Ressler: Dammit, Liz. Wake up! If you keep running, you will be hunted down.
Elizabeth Keen: I know.
Donald Ressler: By *me*.
02x17 - The Longevity Initiative Season 2 / Episode 17: - The Longevity Initiative

Elizabeth Keen: [Via cell phone] Hey, guys. Whatcha got?
Aram Mojtabai: [Smiling big] A birthday card and 31 red velvet cupcakes. Uh, well... 30. I couldn't resist. When are you coming back?
02x16 - Tom Keen Season 2 / Episode 16: - Tom Keen

Tom Keen: The only thing that matters is that I killed that man. The guy walked on the wrong ship at the wrong time.
Judge Renner: So you snapped his neck, just like that?
Tom Keen: No. It took a few seconds.
02x16 - Tom Keen Season 2 / Episode 16: - Tom Keen

Tom Connolly: You perjured yourself for one of your team. I admit, I didn't expect that, but I sure as hell do respect it.
Harold Cooper: Guess my principles aren't what they used to be. Neither are yours.
Tom Connolly: That's where you're wrong, buddy. I never had any principles. That's why I'm on a rocket to the top.
02x16 - Tom Keen Season 2 / Episode 16: - Tom Keen

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [after learning that Liz put aside personal money for a fund for the daughter of the cop that Tom murdered] Be careful, Lizzie. Because the truth of it is once you start down this road, there's no logical place to stop. You could see to her education, health insurance, housing. You can watch her. Or have her watched. Keep her safe. Try to ascertain her... hopes, dreams, desires. Pull strings, call in favors to discreetly smooth the path. And, for the first few years, it may work. You'll draw some measure of virtue from being her invisible benefactor. But, that won't last. It's all a fraud. That it's really not about her at all. That it's all about you. And you're just... going through the motions to salve your own guilt. But, all the money, all the time and effort, all the favors in the world cannot possibly equal what you took away from her. Everything else is... just a nice gesture.
02x15 - The Major Season 2 / Episode 15: - The Major

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: The Major runs a finishing school of sorts. The most reputable of its kind. He recruits wayward children, orphans, delinquents, outcasts. But, only boys and girls of superior intelligence who exhibit very specific sociopathic tendencies. He then cultivates them into charming, well educated, cultured, attractive adults who are capable of dangerous and horrible things.
Harold Cooper: All that matters is Agent Keen.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Which is why we must find the Major. He and I had a rather significant falling out, and I can't locate him. Which is why you need to put me in a room with the Malaysian Deputy Minister to the UN.
Donald Ressler: You want the FBI to invite a UN diplomat to meet with you.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Of course not. Inviting him for a chat with one of your most wanted criminals would be ludicrous. You'll need to abduct him.
02x15 - The Major Season 2 / Episode 15: - The Major

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Cultural peculiarities notwithstanding, I find cock fighting to be abominable. However, truth be told, I do love fried chicken.
02x15 - The Major Season 2 / Episode 15: - The Major

Dembe: You need to tell her, Raymond.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Tell her what?
Dembe: About Tom. You should have told her some time ago.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I don't know how to do that, Dembe.
Dembe: Yes, you do. You tell her the truth by telling her everything.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [Emotionally, after a pause] I don't think I can do that.
Dembe: Maybe you should stop thinking about it and do it.
02x14 - The King Family Season 2 / Episode 14: - The King Family

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: You can never do that again.
Elizabeth Keen: You're Welcome.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I am serious, You can never do that again. Promise me.
Elizabeth Keen: We took down dozens of wanted criminals, Recovered millions of dollars in stolen property, and saved innocent lives.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I am not talking about that.
Elizabeth Keen: You, You're talking about you.Wow,You are so damaged.You can't accept help from anyone. Has anyone ever helped you? Is that why you are the way you are,because you don't fee deserving of it. Is that why you can't be vulnerable for a second? I risked my life for you because i care about you. Deal with that. And when someone does something nice, you're suppose to say thank you.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Thank you.
Elizabeth Keen: You're welcome.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: And never do it again.
02x13 - The Deer Hunter Season 2 / Episode 13: - The Deer Hunter

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: You tell me about the Fulcrum, and I'll help you get your Deer Hunter.
Elizabeth Keen: You're not even interested in serial killers.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: True. I find them unimaginative and woefully predictable. But I am interested in the cases the FBI has wronged over the years.
Elizabeth Keen: Wronged?
02x13 - The Deer Hunter Season 2 / Episode 13: - The Deer Hunter

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: The Deer Hunter is not in fact a brutal buck, but a delicate doe.
Donald Ressler: A woman?
Elizabeth Keen: I disagree.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: The Deer Hunter used to engage his victims up front, in an act of sexual male aggression, but now has shifted to deploying tactics from far off, suggesting a feminine act of cunning. Serial killers usually last for two-three years, this one has been active for twelve years. For every rule, there is an exception. The reason you haven't caught your man is because he's a woman.
02x13 - The Deer Hunter Season 2 / Episode 13: - The Deer Hunter

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: When I was young, I wanted to dance. I saw Gary Cooper dance on the screen, it was wonderful. Years later when I saw Gary, he looked old and grey. It turned out he had a cracked heart valve, very difficult to fix. He was on a waiting list to the end of his days. Just like Elias.
Samuel Aleko: How do you know about my brother?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Elias will have to wait three years at least on that list before his name comes up, for consideration. I can get him a doctor in a week, no price.
Samuel Aleko: And why would you do that?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Because you're going to do something for me.
02x13 - The Deer Hunter Season 2 / Episode 13: - The Deer Hunter

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [to Lizzie] I think you don't want to give me the Fulcrum, because it's your only link to keep me around, and once I have it you'll never see me again.
02x13 - The Deer Hunter Season 2 / Episode 13: - The Deer Hunter

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [sees Aram's hair] I used to have a teeming mane.
02x11 - Ruslan Denisov Season 2 / Episode 11: - Ruslan Denisov

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [Liz is surprised to see Reddington in Uzkbekistan] Go get cleaned up. We'll have dinner. I know a wonderful little hole in the wall, that's actually in a hole in a wall.
02x11 - Ruslan Denisov Season 2 / Episode 11: - Ruslan Denisov

Elizabeth Keen: What the hell are you doing?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I'm sorry. It's been a while since I've done one of these. Did I screw up already?
Donald Ressler: You're not really going to negotiate for Denisov, are you?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [to Liz] You're the one who insisted that our interaction be strictly professional.
Elizabeth Keen: You gave us this case to help us get the agent back, not represent the other side.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Agent Keen, in this world, there are no sides. Only players.
02x11 - Ruslan Denisov Season 2 / Episode 11: - Ruslan Denisov

Elizabeth Keen: That's why you wanted Anneca to abandon the pipeline? To clear the way for another company to get the contract?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: You say that as if it's a bad thing.
02x10 - Luther Braxton: Conclusion (2) Season 2 / Episode 10: - Luther Braxton: Conclusion (2)

Raymond Reddington: [to Braxton] I never thought I'd enjoy having *any*thing in my mouth as much as Petty Officer Virginia Sherman. But, this...


Raymond Reddington: My God! It tastes so good! I hesitate to swallow and I certainly don't wanna spit it out. Oh, what the hell?


Raymond Reddington: I told you so.
02x10 - Luther Braxton: Conclusion (2) Season 2 / Episode 10: - Luther Braxton: Conclusion (2)

The Director: Do you have any idea who I am?
Raymond Reddington: [With a chuckle] Yes. I know just what you are. Sit the hell down.
The Director: I've alerted security.
Raymond Reddington: You seem younger in person than you appear to be when lurking in the background on television. Are you a swimmer?
02x10 - Luther Braxton: Conclusion (2) Season 2 / Episode 10: - Luther Braxton: Conclusion (2)

Raymond Reddington: You will make a mistake and when you do I will be there to indulge the undeniable pleasure and the sweet satisfaction of "I told you so"
02x07 - The Scimitar Season 2 / Episode 7: - The Scimitar

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [Dembe has the Scimitar by gunpoint from behind] All this running around, really. I'm so relieved when the people I'm chasing... come to me.
02x05 - The Front Season 2 / Episode 5: - The Front

Elizabeth Keen: The FBI is not in the business of handling your personal affairs.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: The FBI is in the business of my business. Why else would I be in business with the FBI?
02x05 - The Front Season 2 / Episode 5: - The Front

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: You two out here, playing grab ass in the woods just smacks of something biblical.
Maddox Beck: Who the hell are you?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I'm the snake in the grass.
02x04 - Dr. Linus Creel Season 2 / Episode 4: - Dr. Linus Creel

Elizabeth Keen: Where is Naomi Highland?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: In safe hands.
Elizabeth Keen: What does even mean? You've already set her up with a cozy new life in St. Kitts or Solvang?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [Horrified] Solvang? I'd never send anyone I care about to *Solvang*.
02x04 - Dr. Linus Creel Season 2 / Episode 4: - Dr. Linus Creel

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Lizzie, what do you know about social psychology?
Elizabeth Keen: It's the study of how our behavior is influenced by the world around us.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Not influenced. Manipulated. In what little time I devote to the judgment your government has made about my character and how I treat my fellow man, I can't help but think about how many of their own citizens they've treated like lab rats in the name of science. I believe this murder in Reston is part of an underground social psychology experiment.
Elizabeth Keen: Conducted by our government.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Strap on your tinfoil hat, Lizzie.
02x04 - Dr. Linus Creel Season 2 / Episode 4: - Dr. Linus Creel

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [Holding a broken stick against Frank's throat while Frank's mistress's dog is sitting at their feet] You make her happy. That is the only reason you're still here. [He nods at Frank. Frank nods back. Then Red tosses the stick and talks to the dog] Go get it, boy. [the dog doesn't move. Red chuckles] City dog.
