[Walter, Nikita and O'Brien are leaving the cemetery]
Hey Walter, were you ever in Spec Ops?
Was in it for six months.
If you were going to stake out this place, where would you be?
Behind the hedge, six o'clock.
Yeah, that sounds about right. [turns and shoots into the hedge - an operative falls down dead]
I can't go out there knowing I'm going to die.
[Nikita pulls out her gun, and points it at Birkoff's forehead]
Boom. You just did.
[crying] I'm just so scared.
Birkoff, you've got it backwards. It's not death you have to be afraid of, that's the easy part. It's life that you have to worry about.
When I was in there and things started to get bad I thought I was gonna break, but I didn't. I thought of you. You're the only one of us who still has a soul. I'm so sorry, Nikita. We'll never leave this place alive. I don't know what love is anymore... but the only part of me that's not dead is you.
When I was a boy, my father and I were hunters. We had two retrievers. Good dogs, very fond of each other. Being close kept them content and efficient, but occasionally it interfered with the hunt.
How did you deal with it?
A system of rewards and punishments, as with any living creature.
Did it work?
For a while. Eventually, we had to put one of them to sleep.
You of all people aren't going to warn me against playing God?
No. Provided we do a decent job of it. God doesn't make clumsy mistakes.
Nonsense. Scientists say 90% of the species ever created on this planet are now extinct. That's a ten percent success rate. Ours are much higher than that. End of discussion.
