  • Mood:

truth be told

I got an urge to picspam the Alias Pilot so if anyone's interested in reminiscing with me..
Danny: Sir, I love your daughter and I want to marry her. That's why I'm calling.
Jack: First of all, Danny, the truth is this is just a courtesy call. Like when you say to your neighbor:
"we're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's all right with you," what you really mean is:
"we're having a loud party on Saturday night."
Danny: Mr. Bristow.
Jack: Sydney doesn't give a damn what my opinion is. What interests me is that you do.
Danny: It's just a custom to call the father. That's all this is.
Jack: Well then, I'll tell you what. I may become your father-in-law, that's just fine.
But I will not be used as part of a charming little anecdote you tell your friends at cocktail parties
so they can see what a quaint, old-fashioned guy Danny really is. Are we clear?
Danny: Yes, sir.
Jack: Good. Then welcome to the family.

Weren't you just hooked on this show within the first five minutes? I adore the Bristows and the show
introduced them very well. Danny's proposal was such a Kodak moment I had to include it and
his call to Jack was the funniest thing ever.

It's disappointing that this isn't the real CIA because SD-6's building is breathtaking. Marshall standing next
to them excited to show them their gadgets was cute, he's like a puppy. Sloane kills puppies. I find it sad that
Will was the last to know about the engagement but it made sense. Him brooding was bit funny though,
just a little.

Danny doesn't handle Sydney's confession well...

The mission was a success. Back at home Sydney finds her fiancée dead.
Sydney: What did you do?
Sloane: I might ask you the same question. Security section became aware of the breach and performed their function.
You're familiar with the codes of conduct, Agent Bristow. You knew these codes apply to you, even if you put to risk the lives
of every man and woman working in the agency.
Sydney: Danny wasn't a risk... he was--he was just a man. He was--he was a doctor, he was just--
Sloane: You listen to me. Information about this agency must be treated like a virus.
There is only one response to a virus, and that response is containment. You put us in a compromised situation,
and even though I despise the countermeasure, we have--
Sydney: Stop saying "we." Stop talking about the agency. You killed the man I love!


I want Francie to be my best friend, she's hilarious. Sydney kicks some serious ass while Mr. Bristow comes to her rescue and reveals season one's biggest twist.

they are not CIA.

I thought you sold airplane parts!
Jack: I don't sell airplane parts. I never sold airplane parts. That car is taking you to the airport.
I have to get back so they're not going to know.
Who are you?
: Sydney, get in that car! They're only waiting two minutes, then they leave. With or without you!
There is no time for you not to trust me! You don't know who you're dealing with!
Sydney: What does that mean? Who the hell am I dealing with?
About a decade ago, a pool of agents went free-lance. Russian, Libyan, Chinese, Ethopian--
The alliance of twelve.
Jack: What do you know about them?
They're an enemy of the United States. They're mercenaries. They're dangerous.
I'm one of them. SD-6 is not a black ops division of the C.I.A. SD-6 is a branch of the alliance.
You work for the very enemy you thought you were fighting.
That's impossible...
Jack: Then tell me why you've never been to Langley. You've been lied to! All lower level agents have been lied to.
I am trying to help you here!
So, you're saying I'm working for the enemy and that you are the enemy.
Sydney, this is your last chance. You have to go.
Who are you to come to me and act like a father? If you want to help me, stay away from me.

Sydney I need your help. I can't explain this. You've just got to trust me.
Will: Of course.
Sydney I need to borrow one of your sister's credit cards with at least a three thousand dollar limit. I'll pay her back.
Can you get it?
Will: Sid, what is this? You owe somebody some money?
Sydney: There's something else. Do you know where Amy keeps her passport?

Will is a sweetheart, for real. Who would've thought him and "suit & glasses" were to meet later on?

..... she's back.

Sydney decides to become a double agent
and meets Vaughn along the way(he's good at handling things).
Vaughn: Well, this could be very interesting.
Sydney: Does that mean I'm in?
Vaughn: No, not yet. They're reviewing your statement. You wrote a lot.
Sydney: I know.
Vaughn: I mean, it's like Tolstoy long. Devlin says it could take weeks to verify. But I know we could use another double agent in SD-6. So I'll be in contact. I'm going to get you out of here, keep you concealed. Why are you shaking your head?
Sydney: Because you said "another."
Vaughn: So?
Sydney: So, if you really had one already you most likely wouldn't tell me until I was authenticated.
Vaughn: Unless I had an instinct about you.
Sydney: My bet is you don't. Have another double.
Vaughn: We might.
Sydney: But you want me to believe that you do so that on the off chance that I'm looking to be a triple agent, I'll report back there was an existing mole to upset the balance of my agency.
Vaughn: I'm not trying to play you.
Sydney: Yeah. We'll see.
Vaughn: I have an instinct.

Sydney: I'd like to be alone, if you don't mind.
Jack: I know what it's like to lose someone--
Sydney: Listen, I don't know what you expect. Just because we're working on the same side,
just because I know the truth about you now, that doesn't change a thing between us.
I accept what I'm doing now because I have to. That doesn't mean I have to accept you.
Jack: I asked Devlin if I could come tell you myself. They verified your statement. You're in.
I read what you wrote. I appreciate you not naming me. That was... kind.
Sydney: ....You're a C.I.A.
Jack: You don't know how dangerous this is, Sydney. Doing what I do.
I wish you would have taken me up on Switzerland.
Sydney: How do I know what you're telling me is the truth?
Jack: I guess we'll just have to learn to trust each other.

So what are your thoughts? Did you miss Danny? Do you wish Sark was here? Was Sydney actually glowing? ... tell me :)

caps thank to spycaps.
