Ethan Hunt Quotes
Brandt: The rope isn't long enough!
Ethan: No (expletive)!
Brandt: You're not gonna make it!
Ethan: You're not helping.
Benji: Blue is glue.

Ethan: The Secretary is dead. The four of us are all that remains of the IMF. No safe house, no support, or extraction. Everyone connected with this man is an asset with valuable information. We come back with our target, or we don't come back.
Brandt: And uh, how do you propose that we do that?
Jane: We take him out.
Benji: Yeah, we'll take him out, but discreetly.
IMF Secretary: An hour ago, a bomb blew up the Kremlin. The President has initiated 'Ghost Protocol' -- the entire IMF has been disavowed. Now I've been ordered to take you to Washington where they will hang the Kremlin bombing on you and your team - unless you were to escape after assaulting Brandt and me. But if anyone of your team is caught, they will be branded terrorists out to incite global nuclear war.
Ethan: So what happens now?
IMF Secretary: Your mission, should you choose to accept it...
With great power comes great responsibility.
Luther Stickell: You really think we can do this.
Ethan Hunt: We're going to do it.
Eugene Kittridge: I understand you're very upset.
Ethan Hunt: You've never seen me very upset.
RED LIGHT! GREEN LIGHT!
Claire Phelps: Just give me the money.
Ethan Hunt: [quietly] You've earned it.
Let me ask you something, Kittridge. If a man has crushed, shot, stabbed, and detonated five members of his own IMF team, how upset do you really think you're gonna make him by hauling Mom and Uncle Donald down to the county courthouse?
