Jason Bourne: Whatever we do, we have to do it together. We have to...
Marie: We? The only thing we had in common was that neither one of us knew who you were! We are past that now.
Jason Bourne: Marie! Listen to me! The police will find us, and the people who took that picture, the people who killed Wombosi, they are going to come here and they will kill us.
Marie: The people you work for!
Jason Bourne: I will take you wherever you need to go. I will take you there, and I will leave you there. You can do whatever you want, you never have to see me again. But not here. If we stay here, we die.

If you are going to kill me, kill me dead!

Nykwana Wombosi

Jason Bourne: Is this your store?
Marie: Yeah.
Jason Bourne: It's nice. A little hard to find.

Conklin: Let's ask Marie what she wants to do.
Jason Bourne: Actually, I don't think she gives a shit. She's dead.
Conklin: I'm sorry to hear that. How did that happen?
Jason Bourne: She was slowing me down.

Ward Abbott: Can you really bring him in?
Conklin: I think we're past that, don't you? What, do you have a better idea?
Ward Abbott: Well, so far, you've given me nothing but a trail of collateral damage from Zurich to Paris. I don't think I could do much worse.
Conklin: Well why don't you go upstairs and book a conference room. Maybe you can talk him to death.

Jason Bourne: Who am I?
Conklin: You're U.S. Government property. You're a malfunctioning $30 million weapon. You're a total goddamn catastrophe, and by God, if it kills me, you're going to tell me how this happened.

Jason Bourne: You sent me to kill Wombosi.
Conklin: Kill Wombosi? We can do that any time we want. I can send Nikki to do that, for Chrissakes. Mr. Wombosi was supposed to be dead three weeks ago. He was supposed to have died in a way where the only possible explanation was that he'd been murdered by a member of his own entourage. I don't send you to kill. I send you to be invisible. I send you because you don't exist.

Jason Bourne: I don't want to do this anymore.
Conklin: I don't think that's a decision you can make.
Jason Bourne: Jason Bourne is dead, you hear me? He drowned two weeks ago. You're gonna go tell 'em that Jason Bourne is dead, you understand?
Conklin: Where are you gonna go?
Jason Bourne: I swear to God, if I even feel somebody behind me, there is no measure to how fast and how hard I will bring this fight to your doorstep. I'm on my own side now.

Great police work, really brilliant! Why don't they just put up a sign that says "Don't come back!"


Now Jason, this only goes two ways. Either you come in and let us make this right, or we're going to have to keep going until we're satisfied.


What is the French word for "stakeout," huh?


I work alone like you. We always work alone.

Giancarlo: What's this? You tie these knots? So it starts to come back, huh?
Jason Bourne: No, it doesn't start to come back. The knot's like everything else, I just found the rope and I did it. The same way I can, I can read, I can write. I can add, subtract. I can make coffee. I can shuffle cards. I can set up a chessboard.
