C Quotes in Spectre (2015)
C: Take a look at the world... chaos... because people like you, paper-pushers and politicians, are too spineless to do what needs to be done so I made an alliance to put the power where it should be, and now you want to throw it away for the sake of democracy, whatever the hell that is. How predictably moronic.

M: Not a good feeling being watched, is it?

C: Why can't you just face it, M? You don't matter anymore.
