Operation: Broken GroundEdit

Chapter 1Edit

Tara: [narrating] First rule...keep moving. Second rule...find a crowd.

Chapter 2Edit

Tom: How are you feeling?
Tara: Leg's fine, Tom.
Tom: There's both fine, you ask me.

Chapter 3Edit

Tara: [narrating] I am, after all, worth one million dollars. Or at least, that's what the red mafia is willing to pay for my head. Not really the same thing, is it?

Chapter 4Edit

Tara: [narrating] There's a trick, they teach it to you at the School. When someone pulls a gun on you, they say…charge at him like a bloody lunatic…It's the last thing they expect and most of them can't hit water from a submarine anyway…and repeat to yourself over and over that you're doing this for Queen and Country.

Operation: MorningstarEdit

Chapter 1Edit

Tara: What are you writing?
Psychologist: Just my notes. They're confidential, just between you and me.
Tara: Then I can read them?
Psychologist: Certainly. Have I got it right so far?
[Notes read "Reticent. Suspicious."]

Chapter 2Edit

Tara: …Bloody talking about me like I can't hear them! I'm a spy for God's sake!

Chapter 3Edit

Kate: Minder Two as requested, sir.
Crocker: Show her in, Kate. And if we could get some coffee, I won't have to fire you.
Kate: I obey.

Operation: Crystal BallEdit

Chapter 1Edit

Tara: Because sweat, mud and shite make a girl glow.
Ed: Works for me.

Chapter 2Edit

Tara: Either you move right now, or I shall move you…and I shall do it in such a way as to make your future a very high-pitched one.

Chapter 3Edit

Crocker: But if he is, then Ed's just bought us a chance to prevent a major C.B.W. incident.
Tom: Sound good at his wake, won't it?

Chapter 4Edit

Tom: …And hail the conquering hero. Back from Iraq with not a scratch to show for it.
Ed: Oh, I've got scratches…Just none that I'm willing to show you.

Chapter 5Edit

Tara: How fast are you?
David: When someone's shooting at me? I'm bloody Carl Lewis.

Operation: BlackwallEdit

Chapter 1Edit

Tara: An affair, by definition, is conducted with a degree of discretion, if not secrecy.

Chapter 2Edit

Lisa: We ran "Andre" here through the visual database, looking to match his face with any on file.
Tom: Don't tell me it actually worked?
Lisa: Heavens no. It never does. The computer always wants to match the subject with the late Queen Mother, may she rest in peace.

Chapter 3Edit

Tara: My friend fell in love with you, Anton…and that's the only reason I haven't started putting my fags out on your face.
