NIKITA, bitterly: "Very clever. What? You think you found a way to kill Michael that Iíll find acceptable?"
MR. JONES: "It is important to save the boy."
N: "The Collective have promised to let Adam go twice. Twice, they havenít done it. Why should it be any different this time?"
MR. J: "It is Adamís only chance, and Michael has agreed."
N: "Michael doesnít have a choice! You do."
MR. J: "My dear girl, none of us have a choice. Least of all, me."
N, fighting back tears: "Do you think with Michael gone, Iím going to stay and run Section?"
MR. J: "Well, weíll see. Ah. An answerís coming through from the Collective."
N: "Never going to happen."
MR. J: "Weíll see."
