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.

Season 1 Quotes

01x21 - Berlin Season 1 / Episode 21: - Berlin

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I met Dr. Sanders here through a mutual friend to discuss a very delicate and underfunded research project. As I recall, the science was awesome, but financially precarious. We did, however, spend a glorious weekend in God's Country with two snow bunnies who were dead ringers for the Swiss Miss Girl.
Dr. Bruce Sanders: [Both laugh] And we watched Space Ranger.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Yes. Space Ranger! What a memory.
01x08 - General Ludd Season 1 / Episode 8: - General Ludd

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I finally had a chance to see her, Sam. There's a fire inside she got from you. She's volatile, unpredictable, soft, and hard, and... soft again. Stronger than she knows. You gave her an incredible gift, Sam. Taking her in and loving her as your own.
Sam: They've given me six weeks. For what? So I can lay here and watch them take me apart. I wish they'd said six hours. And I told them, I said, "You can get rid of those damn machines. Go monitor somebody who's actually got vital signs." I need to tell Lizzy.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: No
Sam: I know what we agreed, but before I go I have to tell her.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I can't let you do that.
Sam: She deserves the truth.
