A recruit from Quantico, Elizabeth Keen, and a well experienced agent of the FBI, Donald Ressler, crossing paths, while being in completely different states of their lives. There is mistrust and what seems like insurmountable deviations at first. But soon enough the gap is becoming smaller, until one day they find themselves equals, peers. They respect each other for who they are and what they managed to achieve. Will it at one point turn into love? Will they move forward from the state of being just colleagues and friends? We need to be patient and go along with them exploring the other and maybe one day realizing the other being the soulmate.

quotes ღ

Liz: "I mean, I just feel like someone's watching me."
Ressler: "Is that why you are living out of your trunk? those motels? the aliases? You gotta stop doing that Keen. Tom is dead.
Episode 2x01

Liz: "You did good."
Ressler: "You're right. I was amazing."
Episode 2x02

Liz: That's a trade-off I'd make."

The Agent Keen I met a year ago would have never done that."

Liz: " You are late to work again. You seem a little edgy."
Ressler: "I'm fine. Thanks mom."

Liz: "It was."
Episode 2x07

Ressler: "I gotta take him in. Are you hearing me? You had to know when you told me that this is where it was gonna go.
Liz, I can't be part of this."
Liz: "He's an informant. Like Reddington."
Ressler: "The only difference is, you are not in love with Reddington."
Episode 2x08

Liz: "Ressler I think I'm in trouble. I got a call from Metro PD. They got a missing person's case. The D.C. Harbormaster. He showed up where I was holding Tom."
Ressler: "Whoa whoa, whatever you're about to confess Keen, don't."
Liz: "I didn't kill him. I didn't. It was Tom."
Ressler: "Tom? Why would Tom kill the one person in a position to rescue him?"
Liz: "To protect me. I realize how insane that sounds.
I met the Harbormaster the first time he showed up and gave him my card.
Told him I was there searching for two fugitives."
Ressler: "You lied to him."
Liz: "To explain why I was there. I had no idea Tom would kill him. I tried to stop it."
Ressler: "Was there witnesses? Somebody must have been watching Tom while you weren't there."
Liz: "There was someone."
Episode 2x11

Ressler: "What's going on with you and Reddington? You two having a lovers quarrel?"
Liz: "I don't trust him."
Ressler: "Reddington's untrustworthy?"
Episode 2x11

Ressler: "Come on Keen, what is it? I know you better than that. Where's your head?"
Liz:"That cop. The one investigating the Harbormaster. He's got evidence[.
Ressler: "He found the body."
Liz: "And the witness."
Ressler: "Did he talk?"
Liz: "I think he did, yes."
Ressler: "It's your word against his."
Liz: "I've hidden behind the task force for as long as I can.
Told them I couldn't talk because it was classified but he is taking the case to a federal judge."
Ressler: "Tom is the one who killed this guy."
Liz: "But I was there. I should've.."
Ressler: "What? Stopped him? Liz you tried."
Liz: "They'll have enough to arrest me."
Episode 2x13

Ressler: "How many people do you think are alive today that wouldn't be if it wasn't for the work we do. Fifty? A hundred? How many Liz?
How many families haven't buried a mother, a father, brother, sister, children."
Liz: "That doesn't make it right."
Ressler: "No. It’s never gonna be right. See, the only question is the body count. So, you go ahead, you nail yourself to a cross.
And while you’re up there feeling sanctified, you consider how many people are gonna die
because this task force gets shut down and the rest of those animals on Reddington’s list are still out there feeding.
Liz: "Ressler.."
Ressler: "No. Don't. Don't ask me to feel your pain Liz. I got more than enough of my own."
Episode 2x13

Ressler: "Hey. Big day. Plans to celebrate?"
Liz: "Oh ah yeah I'm gonna go to Wing Yee's with a few friends. It's no big deal."
Ressler: "Wow! Restrain yourself Keen. Cmon, smile, it's your birthday. You got plenty to celebrate."
Liz: "Thanks, you're sweet."
Episode 2x17

Liz: "Hey, what are you still doing here?"
Ressler: "I could ask you the same thing. What happened to dinner?"
Liz: "I just didn't feel like going out."
Ressler: "What's going on Keen?"
Liz: "You said earlier that I had so much to celebrate. You know that isn't true.
I mean I thought by the time I was in my thirties I'd have something to show for it.
I would at least be a prestiges profiler. I mean I was the top of my class. I thought I'd have a loving relationship with someone.
Maybe we would be raising a family together."
Ressler: "At least you got a dog. That's one up on me."
Liz: "I don't know who I am. I don't know if this is my birthday. I don't even know my own name. No, I know who I am.
I am the puppet of some high functioning sociopath. I don't even know what I am doing here."
Ressler: "What you are doing, is celebrating your birthday. With me."
Liz: "What did you.."
Ressler: "See, I called the restaurant. Thought I'd sent you and your friends a bottle of wine. Turns out there wasn't a reservation.
So I figured since you weren't to Wing Yee, I was bringing Wing Yee to you."
Liz: "I've been saving this for a special occasion."
Ressler: "Well, I'm honored."
Episode 2x17

Liz: "Reddington didn't give it to me. I found it in one the places he stays."
Ressler: "And you think this is a photo of your mother?"
Liz: "I don't know. That's what Reddington told me. But that girl, that is definitely me.
Episode 2x21

Ressler: "Hey, hang on. You okay ?"
Liz: "Yeah."
Ressler: "What happened?"
Liz: "He blindsided me."
Ressler: "Where did he go?"
Liz: "I didn't see."
Episode 2x21

Ressler: "Don't do this Keen."
Liz: "They won't listen to me."
Ressler: "We will make them listen."
Liz: "Did you get my blood test back?"
Ressler: "Positive for the virus."
Liz: "You see they can make anything look like the truth."
Ressler: "And if you run? What does that look like? If someone is setting you up, you are giving them exactly what they want.
You can fight this. But you gotta do it from inside the system."
Liz: "In about twenty seconds that camera is going to turn back on.
If you're gonna let me go, you gotta do it now before people see you standing here with me."
Episode 2x22

Ressler: "Where the hell are you?"
Liz: "Listen to me. Harold Cooper, he had nothing to do with this."
Ressler: "You need to turn yourself in."
Liz: "Did you hear me? He is innocent."
Ressler: "You are a wanted fugitive. You murdered the Attorney General of The United States. You have to come in."
Liz: "I can't."
Ressler: "Damn it Liz. Wake up. If you keep running you will be hunted down."
Liz: "I know."
Ressler: "By me. Don't make me do this."

Episode 3x02

Ressler: "I owe you Keen. You saved my life back at that convoy. So now let me return the favor. Come out before this gets bad."
Liz: "It's already gone bad and you're making it worse. If you wanna repay me do what Reddington says before somebody else get's hurt."
Ressler: "That's not going to happen and you know it. The scene is locked down. Nowhere to go and you got zero leverage cause I know you.
And what you're capable of. You are not going to hurt these people."
Episode 3x02

Liz: "Why are you doing this?"
Ressler: "It's my job."
Liz: "You know me. You know I've been framed."
Ressler: "If you're innocent, come in and let me help you."
Liz: "I am just trying to get my life back. If you are interested in the truth, back off. Let me do what I have to do to clear my name."
Episode 3x03

Ressler: "You know what I am? I am scared. Because for a minute I thought Keen was gone."
Episode 3x05

Ressler: "Every day she is out there is a day we could lose her."
Episode 3x05

Ressler: "Stop! Stop."
Liz: "You wouldn't."
Ressler: "I would. You know I would. Elizabeth Keen, you are under arrest."
Episode 3x08

Liz: "Just so you know, I am not ashamed of what I did."
Ressler: "You shot the Attorney General of the United States."
Liz: "He was a terrorist."
Ressler: "He was unarmed."
Liz: "I am glad you have your convictions, I just don't want to die for them."
Episode 3x09

Ressler: "You’ll get a fair hearing."
Liz: "You and I both know I’ll never make it to that hearing alive."
Episode 3x09

Ressler: "The US Marshals will arrive to escort you to a Federal courthouse where you will be held pending your arraignment tomorrow."

Episode 3x09

Liz: "They were gonna kill me. The Director wasn't taking me to any blacksite for questioning about actionable intel.
If you hadn't shown up when you did, I'd be dead."
Ressler: "I'm sorry Keen. I expected the Director to try something but I also expected Reven Wright to be there. To intervene."
Liz: "What happened?"
Ressler: "I think Laurel Hitchin killed her or had her killed."
Liz: "My god, they are in the White House."
Ressler: "Hey look, Reven might be gone but the safeguards we put in place for your arrest are still in tact. She arranged for your case to be heard by a judge that she trusted completely."
Liz: "As much as she trusted Laurel Hitchin?"
Ressler: "Pending trial you will be housed under military guard at Fort Meade. We can keep you safethere Liz. I wouldn't have brought you in if I didn't believe that."
Liz: "I need a pen and paper. I don't have a will."

and give it back to you when it’s all over."
Episode 3x10

Episode 3x10

Ressler: "I'm sealing of the entire floor. We are not going anywhere with these Marshalls.
We sit tight until Reddington gets in touch with us."
Liz: "What the hell happened out there?"
Ressler: "I don't know. I got a call from Laurel Hitchin, warning me that it wasn't safe."
Liz: "It was her hit. Why would she call it off?"
Ressler: "I don't know. It's Reddington. He must be negotiating a deal. Liz, it's working."
Liz: "I'd be pleading guilty to homicide. There taking away my badge. If I sign this, I will never be an agent again."
Ressler: "No but the Task Force would continue. Cooper would be cleared, put back in charge and you'd keep working with Reddington.
To assist the government as an asset we employ not as an active agent."
Episode 3x10

Liz: "Hey. We good?"
Ressler: Yeah. Fine. It's your big day."
Liz: "This is about you and Tom. Look, I know the two of you have.."
Ressler: "It's not about him and me. It's about him. I mean, he laid a hand on you. As far as I'm concerned, there's no coming back from that."
Liz: "I get where you're coming from, and I love you for saying it. But I kept him prisoner in the hull of a ship and tortured him for two months, so in my book we're even."
Ressler: "Hey, I said my piece. If I can be there for you today, I will."

— s e a s o n . four —

Liz: "Kirk thinks Agnes is his granddaughter, so he won't hurt her."
Ressler: "You really think that Alexander Kirk is your biological father?"
Liz: "I don't know what to believe, but after what happened, it's possible."
Ressler: "Alexander Kirk shot up a church full of federal agents to get to you. You almost died because of him. Not exactly father of the year."
Episode 4x03

Liz: "This is our case."
Ressler: "Not anymore. We're trying to coordinate a search with over a dozen foreign governments. Main Justice is running point now."
Tom: "Well, we need to see everything."
Ressler: "Yeah, not gonna happen."
Liz: "Ressler, why not?"
Ressler: "Because you lost your security clearance, Keen. And technically, both of you guys are victims in this case. If you want, dig in. As it is, I'm violating federal code.
I could go to jail for even showing you what I have."
Episode 4x03

Ressler: "You know, that little act of yours between you and Reddington had me going."
Liz: "Oh, it wasn't an act. I'm only putting up with Reddington and his lies until we get Agnes back."
Episode 4x06

Ressler: "You're telling me that Reddington was there with Kirk."
Liz: "Yeah. He traded himself for me."
Ressler: "They were in some kind of an underground parking lot?"
Liz: "There were no signs, no markers. They had my head covered going in and out."
Ressler: "Any idea how close it is?"
Liz: "I'd say we drove 15, maybe 20 minutes."
Ressler: "10 mile radius to search. We're right back to where we started."
Liz: "No, we're not. I have an idea."
Episode 4x08

Ressler: "Forget it, Keen. I know that look. Don't tell me you believe him."
Liz: "Something's off. It's just a read, but his denial seems genuine."
Ressler: "What about an eyewitness, Keen? Does that change your mind?"
Episode 4x09

Ressler: "So how's that cover holding up?"
Liz: "Margot's on board. Emma.. something's off. Has Aram had any luck with her background?"
Ressler: "No. It's like her ID was professionally scrubbed."
Liz: "Tell him to keep looking. I'll do some digging of my own. I wanna figure out who this woman is. Something feels off about her."
Episode 4x11

Ressler: "She knows you're FBI? Keen, we gotta pull you out."
Liz: "Margot's contact says Helldritch is in Hong Kong."
Ressler: "We have no jurisdiction there."
Liz: "Our only shot at recovering the WITSEC list is to have The Harem steal it, and I've got to be there."
Ressler: "If Emma rolls on you?"
Liz: "She won't."
Ressler: "Why? Because Reddington's got his hooks in her?"
Liz "We can't let The Harem steal the WITSEC list and run with it."
Ressler: "She's with Margot. You said so yourself."
Liz: "I know you're worried about me, and I appreciate it. But I trust her. I'll make contact from Hong Kong."
Episode 4x11

Ressler: "Jesus Keen, you just got your badge back."
Liz: "Because of Reddington. He needs our help."
Ressler: "So what? We just drop everything? We put off everything to help this guy. No, it's too much, Keen. The guy demands too much."
Episode 4x13

Liz: "Ressler! Stand down."
Ressler: Keen, I found a witness who saw Hitchin's men dispose of Reven's body."
Liz: "There is no witness."
Ressler: "What are you talking about? I met her, okay? She told me everything."
Liz: "Your memory was manipulated by Dr. Bogdan Krilov. We have him in custody."
Ressler: "No. I know what I saw. Trust me."
Liz: "No, you need to trust me. The Detective who reached out to you?"
Ressler: "Elijah Bell."
Liz: "There is no Elijah Bell in the Philly PD. He works with Krilov and so does your witness."
Ressler: "No. No. I was at her house, okay? I was there when she was taken."
Liz: "By Krilov's men. He staged the whole thing. Hitchin wasn't involved. During the raid, you were knocked out, unconscious. That's when Krilov started to work on you, implanting memories. Hitchin coming to pick you up."
Ressler: "How do you know that?"
Liz: "Krilov made it up. Krilov staged the whole thing."
Ressler: "No. No! We're not gonna let her get away with this."
Liz: "No, you're right. We will find justice for Reven. Just not this way. Ressler, look at your hand. You were drugged. Propofol, Tramadol. It's not your fault. You're the victim here."
