I told you not to open the box.

Sherlock Holmes

Mission accomplished.

Ethan

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: And when it's red?
Benji: Dead.

Ethan Hunt: Who are you really, Brandt?
Brandt: We all have our secrets. Don't we, Ethan?

Benji: How come I'm Pluto? I'm not even a planet.
Brandt: There's always Uranus [grins].
Benji: Hah, that was funny, 'cause you said anus.

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.
Brandt: 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.

Ethan

If you're doing something for the right reasons, nothing can stop you.

Duncan

We bought a zoo!

Rosie

Kelly: We need somebody who can take charge of this place, or else we and all these animals are gone.
Benjamin: So your question is...
Kelly: Why did you buy this place?
Benjamin: Why not?
