I'm allergic to flowers, so maybe you should tell me something before I sneeze and accidentally cut your throat.

Sam: 'Ah. Well, I'm not a tuxedo guy.'
Guard: 'But aren't you some kind of spy?'
Sam: 'Yeah but I'm the real kind, not the Tuxedo wearing kind. I'm the kind of spy who's gonna spill blood all over your Andretti if you don't tell me what I want to know.'

You have the right to freedom of speech... freedom of worship... from want... from fear.
These rights would not exist without a fifth.
The right to protect all other freedoms by whatever means necessary.
It's my freedom... it's my duty... it is my war.

Like any man, when he's pushed to his limits, he's capable of anything. When someone strikes at the one's he loves, he will take any steps necessary. He's looking for answers, for the truth. He will stand by his convictions. The Sam Fisher you know is dead. The man who played by the rules, listened to the voice in his ear - he's gone. So watch your back, I can't stop him - no one can.

I am a soldier, I've served my country for 20 years. But if I'm captured or killed I know that nobody will come to rescue me. I won't even get a funeral. Because the nation that I protect can never admit that I exist. So my death would go unremarked, my bones would go unclaimed. I don't know if that day will come but I do know...that it must not be today! I am invisible, I am relentless. I am Sam Fisher. I am a Splinter Cell.

My name is Sam Fisher. I'm a soldier. I'm not much of a philosopher, but if you want to know what I believe, I'll tell you. I believe the greatest threats to our freedom actually start small. They begin as random events that most people don't even notice. But they grow. They multiply. They start chain reactions that threaten the entire world. Some people call that 'fate'. I call it 'Chaos Theory'. But, believing in Chaos Theory doesn't mean you have to surrender to it. That's where I come in. I find those threats before they get out of hand, and I eliminate them. Quickly, quietly, relentlessly. I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.
