best dialogue
QUINN: "Don't get me wrong. I'm not suggesting that you're doing it intentionally, or even consciously, but have you stopped to think that maybe you don't want us to find Nikita?"
MICHAEL: "For what reason?"
Q: "Because you're in love with her."
M: "Your psyche data is incomplete."
Q: "How so? Madeline gave me everything."
M: "I never loved Nikita."
Q: (stunned) "I thought that was common knowledge."
M: "Yes, it's what we wanted them to believe."
Q: "We?"
M: "Operations. Madeline. Me."
Q: "I've been through the databases a hundred times over, Michael. The time you spent with Nikita...."
M: "I was assigned to train her, motivate her adjustment."
Q: "Give her something to hang onto, to believe in."
M: "Yes."
