President Thomas Whitmore: Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, destroyed.
Gen. Gray: We have also learned that NORAD and our top commandos were the first to be taken out. At this rate, we could be looking at the worldwide destruction of every major city in the next 36 hours.
President Thomas Whitmore: Then we're being exterminated.

Patricia Whitmore: Is Mommy sleeping now?
President Thomas Whitmore: Yeah, Mommy is sleeping now.

If we don't act now, we may not have much of an America left to defend.

Albert Nimzicki

While we're in Virginia, let's stop by Fort Knox. I'll fly a helicopter through the lobby and land right inside the vault. And it would be a hell of a lot easier than breaking into the goddamn CIA!

Franz Krieger

Ethan Hunt: Zero bodycount.
Franz Krieger: We'll see.

Relax Luther. It's much worse than you think.

Ethan Hunt

All right, Hunt. Enough is enough. You have bribed, cajoled, and killed, and you have done it using loyalties on the inside. You want to shake hands with the devil, that's fine with me. I just want to make sure that you do it in hell!

Eugene Kittridge

Hasta lasagna, don't get any on ya.

Jack Harmen

Jim Phelps: Any questions?
Ethan Hunt: Yeah. Could we get a capuccino machine in here? 'Cause I don't know what you call this.
Jack Harmen: I call it cruel and unusual.
Claire Phelps: Hey, I made that coffee.
Ethan Hunt: Exactly.

Anonimity... is like a warm blanket.

Max

[gives Hunt the exploding gum] Just don't chew it.

Jack Harmen

Ethan Hunt: They're dead.
Eugene Kittridge: What? Who's dead?
Ethan Hunt: My team. My team is dead! They knew we were coming. They knew we were coming and the disk is gone.
Eugene Kittridge: Wait a minute...
Ethan Hunt: Did you hear me? The list is in the open.
