Ben, it’s been six years since I’ve seen you. At this rate, I’ll be lucky if I get to spend one week with you over the course of my life. One magical week.


Addison: Okay, Ben, this is the world of espionage. It’s… it’s like the opposite of you. Everyone’s a liar, looking for someone to trust. And they’re all terrified of betrayal because they betray for a living.
Ben: You’re really starting to put a damper on my James Bond fantasy.
Addison: Good. Because this isn’t a game.

Hannah: Ben? Is that you?
Ben: Yes. It is me.
Hannah: Oh, well, thank god! If you knew how many people I’ve asked in the past six years!

Hannah: I wonder where we’ll end up next. Or when.
Ben: Wherever. Whenever. I’m sure it’ll be another adventure of a lifetime.
Hannah: That’s what you are, you know. The adventure of my lifetime.

Jenn: What are you two whispering about?
Ian: You
Addison: [at the same time] Magic.
Jenn: [beat] Deception noted.

Addison: Egypt. This is amazing. You’ve never leapt out of the country before.
Ben: Actually, I did. It’s just… you all thought I was dead.

Barnes: Nomad. Ha. Let’s not get carried away, kid. Nomad’s a myth and if he’s not, he’s certainly not some part-time tour guide who’s probably slept with half her clients.
Addison: Well, this is why Layla got away with it. She was smart and the world, totally sexist.

Ben: I know this is good news, so why am I so nervous?
Addison: Because being a spy isn’t the fantasy people think it is? In real life, you’re on your own. And if you make a mistake, it is either you or Layla at the bottom of the Nile.
Ben: Is that supposed to be a pep talk? I think you’ve been spending too much time with Jenn.

Ben: I’ve been traveling through time for so long, not having any real human contact, no life of my own. I don’t really know how I’m supposed to feel.
Hannah: How do you feel?
Ben: Alive.
Hannah: Me, too.

You can trust him. More than anyone in the world. I know because he risked his life for me. When he didn’t have to. He saved me and so many others because he cares about doing what’s right. So yes, there may be more… seasoned agents, but there isn’t a better man on this earth.


Barnes: This is your first field operation, right?
Ben: Yes. It is.
Barnes: Well, the good news is you’ve never been to Cairo so the Stasi don’t know you. Bad news is if this is a trap, they’ll torture you and bury you in the desert with the rest of the pharaohs. Relax, kid. I’m just teasing. It doesn’t happen. Often.

Y’know, most people live their lives without urgency. They think this lasts forever. But we know better. We know what a miracle any time is.


Quantum Leap Quotes

Look, I’m not trying to tell you how to do your job. I’m just merely offering a counterpoint from someone who has impeccable taste in music.


Addison: Have you been hiding?
Ben: Hiding? No, I was just in a different section of the apartment.
Addison: You mean the bathroom where you were hiding from the party you didn’t want to have?
Ben: I love parties. Having everyone in here, touching all our stuff. I would’ve proposed way sooner if I knew we got to do this.
