[Following the murder of Helmut's brother Kristof...]
NIKITA: "You all right?"
HELMUT: "They stole money. Thirty years of life for a few dollars. At that price, mine could be had for pocket change."
N: "No, thatís not true. Youíre a good man."
H: "Yeah, but isnít goodness in the eyes of the beholder? And who, besides you, could begin to behold such a thing?"
N: "You. Thatís all you have, Helmut. Thatís the best any of us can ever get. We live with ourselves and we die with ourselves and the choices that we make. What other people thinkÖ."
H: "So --what -- we live in isolation? Alone, without contact, without love? Could you do such a thing?"
N: "I have."
H: "Always?"
N: "I donít know. I think if you live without something long enoughÖ.you may not recognize it if it happens to find you."
H: Freddie loves you. Something in the way he looked at you. And God knows Ė maybe in this wretched life Iíve chosen -- maybe I do too."
