Re: Favourite Quotes!

OK, I know it's not exactly playing by the rules, but I really loved this bit:
ep. 4.9, the bus scene:
Harry: ""Keep an eye on Adam for me. He's st..."
[Ruth pulls away her hand from the seat]
NW (on the DVD commentary): "Harry! God! Adam Shmadam!"

Re: Favourite Quotes!

haha i listened to that audio commentary yesterday smile
"Adam Shmadam!" and the way she said it too lol
kind of off topic but i love some of the quotes on audio commentaries - actually i just love them generally, it's so annoying they didn't put them on all the episodes in the later series!

2.08:

Zoe: That's an oil fire. Malcolm, what would that do to Uranium?

Malcolm: It would make it very angry indeed.

Re: Favourite Quotes!

Its probably been said before but Harry, Ros and Ruth get the best lines.

"I'm not Greek and I'm not dead". - Ros Myers

(when someone said she was a legend)


Couldn't they have had a happy ending? Just once?
Bonkers but definately not so brilliant big_smile

I think I watched the episodes with audio commentaries more than any other episodes when I borrowed the DVDs off a friend. They made me completely fall in love with Nicola, as well as Ruth!

Re: Favourite Quotes!

firstly, when Ruth calls Harry late at night
"if this isnt life threatening I hope your passport is up to date"

End of 7.1 or start of 7.2

Harry: We have been forbidden to target the Russian operation in London
Jo: So what are we going to do?
Harry: Target the Russian operation in London

3.8(ish), after Morgan grabs the water bottle off Adam and drinks it while being interrogated

Adam - in about ten minutes youre going to regret that
Morgan - shit
Adam - yeah, theres going to be a lot of that

2.4ish (the boy computer genius with the spider program)
Tom- Wear a tighter sweater, its obvious he fancies you. We can use that to our advantage
Zoe- Oh, any particular sweater in mind?
Tom & Danny- The blue one!

4.1 (shining dawn)
Harry- ...consequently our knowledge of them....is sketchy
CIA dude- sketchy? Sketchy as in non-existant?
Harry- No, sketchy as in your knowledge of Al-Qaeeda when they were learning to fly and sunning themselves in Florida


Danny's last speech (c & p'd from elsewhere, might not be perfect)
you will never win. if i had been born somewhere else, it might have been me holding the gun now. if you had been born somewhere else, it might have been you sitting right where i am. for all your talk about choices, we don't get to choose those things. but i guess you're just unlucky because somehow you've lost your humanity and now have no kindness or pity left in you. but i still have those things. acts of hatred also produce acts of love so you, my friend, will never win.
look at all the cake and presents, fiona.
if i weren't chained to this chair, i would be right up in your face - and you know what i'd be saying to you? fuck you, you death-worshipping fascist.


"In about ten minutes you're going to regret that"
"Shit"
"Yeah, there's going to be a lot of that"

Re: Favourite Quotes!

I have used the 'at least I get to go home at night'  which was Ros to Zaf in 5.3  to a colleague who stays away from home.

I have also used the 'well you should practice more because you are rubbish at it'  line from 5.1  (Ros to Adam in the restaurant where she stole his fingerprint)

I have also used the 'how nice'  line from 7.8 delivereed with as much of the Ros distain I can manage!

And when asked if I was ok I have used the blank 'no'   (Ros to Harry after Adam's death in 7.1

I love Ros' lines as you can tell and it makes me feel really powerful when i say them!

Re: Favourite Quotes!

Series 7. I still love the bit in the restaurant where Lucas and Ros are defusing the bomb and setting a false one (not word perfect but here goes:)

Lucas: "Ros do you prefer the real thing or faking it"  and the look he gives her!

Re: Favourite Quotes!

I love this quote, hence it's my sig.

Lucas North: Home isn't where you live. It's where people understand you. If I don't have trust from MI-5, from you, then I'll never really be home. I'll just be back in England.

*sooo thought provoking....or is because of the gorgeous man delivering the lines? wink


Bob: Well, what are *you* waiting for?
Little Boy on Tricycle: I don't know. Something amazing, I guess.
Bob: Me too, kid.

Re: Favourite Quotes!

If I paused my DVD player to note down all the great quotes I have heard so far in Spooks it would take me a fair while longer to watch it all. smile

Re: Favourite Quotes!

But you could easily argue that it was time worth spent. tongue

A quote I love so much it is permanently etched in my head
(something along the lines of)
Elizabeta/Vyeta/Lucas' ex-wife: Happiness is not getting what you want, it's being content with what you have, so yes, I am happy and I hope that one day you will be too
Ros appears with taser: You didn't believe all that happiness crap did you?

Another great line from Ros.

Re: Favourite Quotes!

From 3.1 I think smile

The whole exchange between Mace and Harry is brilliant!
"We speak now Oliver, or must I embarrass you in front of junior officers?"

the look on Mace's face is priceless.

Re: Favourite Quotes!

I love Ros and all of her lines.

One of my favorites is when Harry and Ros meet with the Home Secretary in 7.3. The Home Secretary asks Harry if the threat level can go down and Harry gets all mad. Ros then says as they leave, "He always walks taller after a haircut."

In 7.6
Ros: I need to pick something up on your way in.
Lucas: Croissant?
Ros: Not exactly.
