Agent Phil Coulson Quotes
Ward: You know, everyone had this place wrong. It isn't death. It's a new beginning. Malick was right, this was all meant to be. The fact that you followed me here. That we're in this together. That just confirms the fact that I am part of a grand plan. I see that now.
Coulson: I honestly have no idea what you're talking about.
Ward: You will.
Coulson: Sounds like there's a lot you're willing to forgive.
Daisy: I will never forgive him. He murdered Rosalind just to hurt you. He killed Koenig because of me.
Coulson: He knew once Koenig outed him as HYDRA he'd lose you.
Daisy: And the sad part is, that's when I finally understood him for the first time. The reason Ward kills isn't because he feels nothing. It's because he feels too much.
Coulson: Easy Mack. I like Roz, whether she can be trusted, yet to be determined.
Mack: How is that not a deal breaker?
Coulson: Because the only spies without trust issues are either young or dead. I hope I can trust Roz. I want to. That's why I'm bringing her here, face to face. So I can look her in the eye and find out. Meanwhile, the rest of you will have to go behind her back.
Today we're launching Operation Spotlight. The objective, to peer into every shadowy corner of the ATCU. The last few days have been hard. What happened with Dr. Garner is tragic, but it has also created a rare moment of opportunity for us. The ATCU brought Dr. Garner's containment module into their research facility. S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to use that as a way to gain access.
Coulson: I got to admit, handing out the containment as a cure; that's especially sinister.
Rosalind: No, I get weekly reports from... Malick.
Coulson: Excuse me?
Rosalind: Gideon Malick.
Coulson: I know the name; industrialist. He served on the World Council.
Rosalind: He's a friend. I worked with him more than a decade. He advises the President's staff. Helped design the ATCU. Oversees the science division. He gave me the T.A.H.I.T.I. intel.
Coulson: The ATCU is looking for a cure. I'm not suggesting that's for everyone, because it's not, but some people might want to...
Daisy: We are not a disease.
Coulson: I didn't say that you were.
Daisy: You can't just expect people to go through that kind of change and immediately have a handle on it. Do you remember how scared I was at first?
Coulson: Yes, I also remember you iced yourself so that you wouldn't hurt any of us. You've got to admit, things are getting out of hand.
Coulson: Mr. Frye we can help you, but you have to trust me. This Lash is not some angel of mercy.
Frye: No, he's no angel. He's just a guy trying to do the right thing.
Coulson: Where are you taking the victims?
Rosalind: That's classified. Oh, it's not fun when it's you, right? Can't believe I just said that to the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Coulson: You know, I'm really not feeling the spirit of cooperation here.
Daisy: I could have talked him in, if you didn't put an unsolicited tracker under his skin.
Mack: If you didn't call to alert him, then we...
Daisy: Why wasn't I told?
Coulson: We thought you were a little close to the situation.
Daisy: Of course I'm close to the situation. You asked me to assemble a team, and I accepted.
Coulson: He must have blown his tracker.
Daisy: Yeah, because he's creeped out that you put a tracker in him.
Coulson: You have an ace up your sleeve and I'm tired of waiting for you to play it.
Price: Is that so?
Coulson: You have surveillance from the hospital, which means there's another picture you chose not to put on TV.
Price: A pretty face, with no name. No birth record. No social attacked to it. She's one of them, and she works for you, right?
Coulson: What do I need to do to keep this quiet?
Fitz: She said she was being hunted.
Mack: Wait what? What does that mean? Hunted by what?
Fitz: She didn't say. I don't know if she even knows.
Coulson: My God, imagine her having to go through all that alone? For that long?
Bobbi: Well, thanks to this guy not anymore.
