[Richard Hayes and Ed Wilson walking into the new CIA building]
Richard Hayes: The President's asked me to become director and do a complete housecleaning at my discretion. I need someone I can trust. After all, we're still brothers. This building doesn't get built without you. You're CIA's heart and soul. Who knows, you might have a secret about me in that safe of yours.
[pointing down the hall]
Richard Hayes: This whole wing will be your part of the world: Counterintelligence. Take a look around. I've got an oversight meeting. Can you imagine? They think they can look into our closet, as if we'd let them.
[Hayes Starts to walk away, stops and begins talking as he turns]
Richard Hayes: I remember a senator once asked me. When we talk about "CIA" why we never use the word "the" in front of it. And I asked him, do you put the word "the" in front of "God"?More Movie: The Good Shepherd [2006] Movie: The Good Shepherd [2006] [01/01/2008 12:01:00]
[Bill Sullivan visits Ed at home to let him know that they're forming the CIA as a peacetime OSS]
Bill Sullivan: I have to tell you, I have some real problems with this whole thing despite how much we need it. I'm concerned that too much power will end up in the hands of too few. It's always in somebody's best interest to promote enemies real or imagined. I see this as America's eyes and ears; I don't want it to become its heart and soul. So I told the president for this to work there is going to have to be some kind of civilian oversight.
Edward Wilson: Oversight? How can you have a covert organization if you have people looking over your shoulder?
Bill Sullivan: You know who gave Hitler his power? The clerks and the bookkeepers, the civil servants. I have this one weakness: I believe in a just God. I always seem to err on the side of democracy.
[Bill Sullivan is getting into his car to leave]
Bill Sullivan: No matter what anyone tells you there'll be no one you can really trust.
[pause, looks away]
Bill Sullivan: I'm afraid when all is said and done we're all just clerks too.More Movie: The Good Shepherd [2006] Movie: The Good Shepherd [2006] [01/01/2008 12:01:00]

Philip Allen: It was a bad year. The water's too high.
[walks closer]
Philip Allen: I understand you wanted to give me the Operation Zapata list yourself. There isn't one, is there?
Edward Wilson: You know it was a silent operation.
Philip Allen: It wasn't silent enough.
[pause]
Philip Allen: I've been asked by the President to suggest who we no longer need with us.
[pause]
Philip Allen: Who would you recommend, Edward?
Edward Wilson: I serve at the pleasure of the director, Sir.
[Allen exhales loudly]
Edward Wilson: I'm just the gatekeeper.
Philip Allen: Why is it that people like us choose to serve for nickels a day in a profession that makes us constantly look over our shoulder to see who is watching us?
Edward Wilson: When will you make a decision?
Philip Allen: I serve at the discretion of the President of the United States. I will do what I think is best for the country.
[Turns around. Walks towards the door]

Miriam: You were brought up on secrets. What was such a big secret that his own son couldn't know?
Edward Bell Wilson Jr.: He was standing outside talking. I heard something I wasn't supposed to, and he knew I listened to his conversation. I heard them say something in Spanish: Bahia de Cochinos.
Miriam: Bahia de Cochinos.
Edward Bell Wilson Jr.: I'm afraid of him.
Miriam: You're safe here with me. People who really love each other don't have secrets. I have something to tell you.

Edward Wilson: [reading] They are right what they say about me. I was weak. A coward. I compromised myself. My honor. My family. My country. I am ashamed of myself. To my wife, I am sorry I've done this to you. To my son, I hope you will grow to be a courageous man. A good husband. A good father. I hope whatever you decide to do, you lead a good, full life.

Valentin Mironov #2: Soviet power is a myth. Great show. There are no spare parts. Nothing is working, nothing, it's nothing but painted rust.

It was never a threat. It will never be a threat. It's a rotted, bloated cow.More Movie: The Good Shepherd [2006] Movie: The Good Shepherd [2006] [01/01/2008 12:01:00]

Dr. Fredericks: That really is quite elegant, Mr. Wilson. Good order, very precise, feeling of the unknown. Fine poetry is the music of mathematics, numbers, singing.
