Season 1 Quotes
|Season 1 / Episode 7: - Frederick Barnes|
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Strontium 90 isn't something you can just pick up at your local piggly wiggly. It's a waste by-product of nuclear reactors - toxic, highly regulated. There's only a handful of people in the world who can procure it in sizable quantities.
Donald Ressler: And let me guess, you happen to know one of them.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Actually, I happen to know three of them. The first of whom was apprehended by Russian authorities last month, the second vaporized by a drone in Quetta, courtesy of your colleagues in the five-sided foxhole.
Agent Meera Malik: And the third?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Is likely Barnes' supplier.
Harold Cooper: Cut to it. I want a name.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I'm afraid it wouldn't do you any good. The FBI has no jurisdiction where he operates. In any case, I've already set a meeting with him for this afternoon.
Elizabeth Keen: And what makes you think he knows how to find Barnes?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: He knows how to get paid by him. That should be sufficient.
Donald Ressler: And he's just willingly hand over this information?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: We'll cross that bridge when we get to there, Donald. Look, we're wasting precious time. You want to catch a mass murderer before he strikes again, and for that to happen, I need to catch a plane.
|Season 1 / Episode 4: - No. 161: The Stewmaker|
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: A farmer comes home one day to find that everything that gives meaning to his life is gone. Crops are burned, animals slaughtered, bodies and broken pieces of his life strewn about. Everything that he loved taken from him - his children. One can only imagine the pit of despair, the hours of Job-like lamentations, the burden of existence. He makes a promise to himself in those dark hours. A life's work erupts from his knotted mind. Years go by. His suffering becomes complicated. One day he stops - the farmer who is no longer a farmer - sees the wreckage he's left in his wake. It is now he who burns, he who slaughters, and he knows in his heart he must pay.
