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.

03x19 - Cape May Season 3 / Episode 19: - Cape May

Mysterious Woman: Have you ever killed anyone?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: That's an odd question.
Mysterious Woman: Have you?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Yes. Many. But never anyone who didn't deserve it.
Mysterious Woman: Me, too.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I know.
Mysterious Woman: How?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: There aren't a lot of us. You learn to recognize it.
03x19 - Cape May Season 3 / Episode 19: - Cape May

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I'm not leaving without you.
Mysterious Woman: Yes, you are.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: No. I'm not.
Mysterious Woman: Those men are after me. It's my problem, not yours.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: You made it my problem the moment you walked into the ocean.
03x15 - Drexel Season 3 / Episode 15: - Drexel

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I am not your Tom problem Lizzy. Tom is your Tom problem.
03x15 - Drexel Season 3 / Episode 15: - Drexel

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: People say youth is wasted on the young. I disagree. I believe wisdom is wasted on the old. All you can do is part with it, but very few will take it, least of all the people closest to you. They want no part of it.
03x12 - The Vehm Season 3 / Episode 12: - The Vehm

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I'm a violent man. I've taken on a life that requires it. I hurt people. I kill people. And each time I do, in that moment, another part of me dies along with them.
03x11 - Mr. Gregory Devry Season 3 / Episode 11: - Mr. Gregory Devry

Elizabeth Keen: What was his name?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Gregory DeVry.
Elizabeth Keen: Were you close?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Gregory was a dear friend, and a brilliant grifter. He made a good living conning con men. Short of George Sanders, I can think of no one I'd rather have pretend to be me.
Elizabeth Keen: But you killed him.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Gregory had terminal stomach cancer. So at his request, I euthanized him.
Elizabeth Keen: You manufactured a doppleganger to reclaim your reputation.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I have many contingency plans in place. This was one.
Elizabeth Keen: Why not tell us?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: The FBI would never permit me to do the very thing necessary to make the plan work: let everyone escape.
Elizabeth Keen: So they could spread the word that we're not working together.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Are we working together? The way you were talking before, I wasn't so sure.
03x10 - The Director, Pt. 2 Season 3 / Episode 10: - The Director, Pt. 2

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Thank you all for coming. I apologize for the security protocols, but my better half insists. Just the fact that you are all here is a testament to the deep concern we share for Elizabeth Keen's safety and well-being. The threat from forces within is proving to be more powerful and far-reaching than one could ever have imagined.
03x10 - The Director, Pt. 2 Season 3 / Episode 10: - The Director, Pt. 2

Harold Cooper: That's it? That's your plan? You want to abduct the Director of Clandestine Services?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Yes.
03x10 - The Director, Pt. 2 Season 3 / Episode 10: - The Director, Pt. 2

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Everybody likes apples.
03x10 - The Director, Pt. 2 Season 3 / Episode 10: - The Director, Pt. 2

The Director: You're insane.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I wouldn't know.
03x06 - Sir Crispin Chandler Season 3 / Episode 6: - Sir Crispin Chandler

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: An ice castle in the air, the best and the brightest frozen solid. I'm intrigued.
Sir Crispin Crandall: You know what these are? They're horseshoe crabs. Decades ago, it was discovered that their plasma contained limulus amebocyte lysate, which can be used to detect bacterial endotoxins. I found a way to synthesize it.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: That's how you made your fortune.
Sir Crispin Crandall: But more important, they were the inspiration for my vision. They have survived four mass extinctions. We are now on the cusp of the final mass extinction, caused by a species of clever but greedy primates known as homo sapien.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Everyone dies, Mr. Crandall.
Sir Crispin Crandall: Death is a process. No one is really dead until the information contained in the brain is lost. Cryonic preservation prevents that loss.
03x06 - Sir Crispin Chandler Season 3 / Episode 6: - Sir Crispin Chandler

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Are you a gambling man, Crispin?
Sir Crispin Crandall: No. I abhor casinos.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Oh, yes. Well, I would agree with you there. But perhaps you're familiar with the old saw "You can't beat the house"? No matter how many poor souls you turn into popsicles, the fix is in. The world in which you awaken will be one incapable of sustaining human life. And why? Because at the critical tipping point, one tragically quixotic megalomaniac cannibalized humanity of the very minds that might have been its salvation. You see, if you were a betting man, you would understand that now trumps later every time. The future is a sucker's bet, a maybe, a contingency, a "What if?" The only thing that is real is the present, and you've plundered it, robbed it of the very geniuses that might have averted the dystopia you so fear. Indeed, perhaps even the very one who might have devised a means to revive your sad, tired, frozen ass. Congratulations, Crispin. You've doubled down on extinction. Life on Earth is going to end. Soon.
03x06 - Sir Crispin Chandler Season 3 / Episode 6: - Sir Crispin Chandler

Sir Crispin Crandall: Cryonics is our only hope.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: It won't work.
Sir Crispin Crandall: I'm betting it will.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Ah. So you are a gambling man. Let's place that bet, shall we? [Red shoots Crandall]
03x05 - Arioch Cain Season 3 / Episode 5: - Arioch Cain

Elizabeth Keen: Did you know a presidential commission was looking into the attacks?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: It's time for us to move.
Elizabeth Keen: If they do their job, if they look for the truth, this could all end.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Lizzie, we have to move, now.
Elizabeth Keen: The Cabal. They found us.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Worse.
Elizabeth Keen: What could be worse than that?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Not what, who. Wendigo.
Elizabeth Keen: Wendigo? Who's that?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: The myth of a nameless assassin. And he's coming for you.
03x05 - Arioch Cain Season 3 / Episode 5: - Arioch Cain

Elizabeth Keen: This Wendigo, if he doesn't work for the Cabal, who does he work for?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: No one. He's not for hire. Wendigo is the embodiment of vigilante justice. He identifies, hunts, and kills targets he deems unfit for society. Some believe he's ex-Special Ops because his presence is felt, but never seen. Whatever his history, apparently you've caught his attention.
03x05 - Arioch Cain Season 3 / Episode 5: - Arioch Cain

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [looking for information from Wendigo's gunsmith] Would you look at that? .416 Rigby Mauser.


Raymond 'Red' Reddington: And fully loaded, no less. An African bull elephant weights 14,000 pounds, and this can bring one down. I happened upon one of those magnificent creatures in the Zambezi valley, and one of these came in quite handy.
Elizabeth Keen: You shot an elephant?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Lord, no.


Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I shot the poacher that was about to kill the elephant.
03x04 - The Djinn Season 3 / Episode 4: - The Djinn

Leonard Caul: You know him?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: No.
Leonard Caul: Neither did I. Had to dig up my agency Rolodex to find someone who recognized him. Name's Matias Solomon. Real lone wolf.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: He was CIA?
Leonard Caul: Asset only. In Ethiopia, until he joined the Eritrean war. Solomon committed atrocities on the battlefield so vulgar, even the CIA disavowed him.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I need you to find him, Leonard.
Leonard Caul: I appreciate you wanting to help your associate, but Solomon's been MIA for a decade.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Dembe is more than an associate to me. Please find him.
03x03 - Eli Matchett Season 3 / Episode 3: - Eli Matchett

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: We're gonna need Mr. Costa's address and maybe some directions. My associate prefers to steal cars that were made before the advent of GPS.
03x03 - Eli Matchett Season 3 / Episode 3: - Eli Matchett

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Progress. It's a bitch.
03x03 - Eli Matchett Season 3 / Episode 3: - Eli Matchett

Elizabeth Keen: I don't know what happened. I used to consider myself lucky. I had a husband I loved, a job I always wanted. I was the kind of person good things happen to.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Have you ever heard of Mugs Kalinowski? Lovely guy. Ugliest man I ever laid eyes on. That's why everyone called him Mugs. Except his dear mother. She was an art professor at Bard. Lovingly referred to him as Picasso.
Elizabeth Keen: That's kind of sweet, actually.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Well, it was an apt nickname. His face was all over the place. But perhaps as a result of that nickname, Mugs grew up with a great appreciation for art. He fenced some of the most extravagant pieces in the world. He only had one rule. Out of respect for dear mom, he'd never lift a Picasso. Felt it was bad luck. Then one day, he got a tip from a source about a piece sitting in a huge loft in Soho. So one evening, Mugs shimmied up the drain pipe, broke in, and lo and behold, there hung on the wall, Les Femmes D'Alger. A spectacular Picasso. One of a series of 15 and astronomically valuable.
Elizabeth Keen: Did he take it?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: No. And Mugs was convinced that was the single biggest stroke of bad luck he'd ever suffered. Well, what he didn't know was the source who'd given him the tip was working with the feds. The painting had a tracking device on it. Sometimes, bad luck is the best luck you'll ever have.
03x02 - Marvin Gerard Season 3 / Episode 2: - Marvin Gerard

Elizabeth Keen: A lawyer? How is that gonna help us with this?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Lawyers find and exploit loopholes. It's what makes them so loathsome. And Marvin Gerard is the most loathsome of them all. That's what makes him so invaluable.
03x02 - Marvin Gerard Season 3 / Episode 2: - Marvin Gerard

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: We're not gonna fight our way out of this. We're gonna have to think our way out.
03x02 - Marvin Gerard Season 3 / Episode 2: - Marvin Gerard

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [laughing] Oh, Tommy. What a delightful nod to tradition. I can't tell you how nostalgic it is to see a Russian bureaucrat demonstrating such a time honored absence of work ethic.
03x02 - Marvin Gerard Season 3 / Episode 2: - Marvin Gerard

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [to the Russian ambassador] Reciprocity's a bitch, right, dahling? Screw the bear, the bear screws back. Batteries not included.
03x02 - Marvin Gerard Season 3 / Episode 2: - Marvin Gerard

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [to Clayton, after tiring of hearing him verbally and physically abusing Carly] You haven't the slightest clue how to speak to a woman, have you? Now, my friend there and I are having a very important discussion, so you just sit tight, enjoy your muffin... [with a small smile and pleasant tone] and if I hear you say anything other than please or thank you to Carly, I'm gonna drag you into the men's room and wash your mouth out with soap. [His smile and pleasant tone now gone] And if that doesn't work, I'll cut your filthy tongue out with that butter knife. [He lets that sink in] That clear enough for you?
03x02 - Marvin Gerard Season 3 / Episode 2: - Marvin Gerard

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [to everyone in the restaurant after shooting the tires and engine of the police car outside, then locking the door] I am *terribly* sorry for the inconvenience, but it appears we'll all be taking an extended lunch. However, if you remain calm and do exactly as I say, I promise, you'll leave here with a rip roaring story to tell your friends and family. Bon appetit! [to a waitress when the restaurant phone rings] Dear, would you mind answering that phone? No doubt it's for me.
03x02 - Marvin Gerard Season 3 / Episode 2: - Marvin Gerard

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: [to Liz] That's Polaris. The north star. That's how sailors used to find their way home. When I look at you, that's what I see. I see my way home.
03x02 - Marvin Gerard Season 3 / Episode 2: - Marvin Gerard

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: From as early as I can remember, I dreamed of someday being captain of a ship. To be out there on the ocean in the middle of the night, navigating by the stars. I always thought it would be the greatest life on earth. The people you're talking about... The ones who think they know you... They really don't know anything about you at all.
03x02 - Marvin Gerard Season 3 / Episode 2: - Marvin Gerard

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Odysseus spent a decade at war. But his biggest battle was finding his way home.
03x01 - The Troll Farmer Season 3 / Episode 1: - The Troll Farmer

Elizabeth Keen: [Red is speechless about her new appearance] She was blonde, wasn't she? That picture of my mother in your apartment; she was blonde. I look just like her, don't I?
