Ward Abbott Quotes:

  • Ward Abbott: Can you really bring him in?

    Conklin: I think we're past that, don't you? What, do you have a better idea?

    Ward Abbott: Well, so far, you've given me nothing but a trail of collateral damage from Zurich to Paris. I don't think I could do much worse.

    Conklin: Well, why don't you go upstairs and book a conference room. Maybe you can talk him to death.

  • Conklin: We've been sleeping down there. Believe me, we're doing everything we can.

    Ward Abbott: And you don't let me know this?

    Conklin: You never wanted to before.

    Ward Abbott: You never made a mistake before.

  • Ward Abbott: You're in a big puddle of shit, Pamela, and you don't have the shoes for it.

  • Jason Bourne: [in Ward's hotel room] You killed Marie.

    Ward Abbott: *You* killed Marie. The moment you got into her car. The moment you entered her life, she was dead.

  • Ward Abbott: [senses Jason Bourne standing behind him in Ward's hotel room] I don't suppose it would do me much good to cry for help, huh?

    Jason Bourne: not much.

  • [holds a gun to both himself and Landy]

    Ward Abbott: I'm a patriot. I served my country.

    Pamela Landy: And Danny Zorn? What was he?

    Ward Abbott: Unlucky. Collateral damage.

    Pamela Landy: So, what do we do now?

    Ward Abbott: I'm not sorry.

  • Pamela Landy: [in his office, over the phone] I was hoping you had some time for me.

    Ward Abbott: Time for what?

    Pamela Landy: I'm free right now, actually.

    Ward Abbott: That sounds ominous. Let me check my schedule.

    [checks his watch]

  • Pamela Landy: What?

    Ward Abbott: I know how you're feeling. You lost two men in Berlin and you want it to mean something, but nothing Bourne gives you will bring your men back. Nothing in those files makes their sacrifice worthwile. You have to let go. We're professionals, when an operation goes bad, we tie it off.

    Pamela Landy: If there's something you're not telling me I want it now before I send that girl out there, do you understand?

    Ward Abbott: You talk about this stuff like you read it in a book.
