Elly Conway

  • I can't pull off a spy mission.
  • It's called a cliffhanger, Mother.
  • I'm in some really big trouble, Mom.


  • So when you feel that fear remember; to focus on the only thing that's real. What's right in front of you.
  • Oh, my God. You're Elly freaking Conway. I am such a fan!
  • Whoa! There's a cat in there.
  • I love this book!
  • What you wrote in your new book actually happened, and you kicked a hornet's nest you didn't even know existed.
  • God, I hate that cat.

Agent Aubrey Argylle

  • You're a terrorist.
  • See? I was telling the truth.
  • Not a real fan. Don't worry. I have it all under control.


  • It seems we serve the same master.
  • I certainly hope you dance as well as you dress.
  • You and I, we're not so different.
  • Not many men have your courage.


Aidan: Had to bring the cat.
Elly: What did you expect me to do, leave him to fend for himself? Come on!
Aidan: He's be fine. Cat ladies always die alone and cats figure it out.
Elly: I am not a cat lady. I'm not. And what's your problem with my cat exactly? He's really cute. He's cuddly and loyal.
Aidan: Oh, please. You suddenly drop dead, that cat's chewing your ears off within forty-eight hours max.
Elly: Which with you around, gets more likely by the minute.

Elly: [Standing outside an apartment door] No one's home? What should we do?
Aidan: Well, I am a spy after all. [Starts picking door lock and they enter the apartment to find completely bare] All right. Writer's intuition, huh?
Elly: Notice anything?
Aidan: Yeah, Bakunin was loaded. He wouldn't live in a dump like this.
Ritter: [In command center] Team one, what's your status?
Hit team member: [In a speeding van] We're two miles out.
Elly: No, it's wallpaper over brick. Does that seem normal to you?
Aidan: Uh, whoever lived here had bad taste? Can we- ca- let's- let's split. [Elly tears down off a wallpaper strip] What are you doing?!
Elly: Look, look, look, there's a line, this is a clue. [Points to white splotch on dark bricks] Look at this.
Aidan: That's spackle. That's plaster. Let's go.
Elly: This is something.
Aidan: We got 95 more locations to check. Come on. Let's get outta here.


  • The greater the spy, the bigger the lie.
  • Once you know the secret, don't let the cat out of the bag.
