100 Reasons Why I Love Olivia Dunham
#32 She’s not satisfied with the achieved results. She’s striving for some visible victory.
OLIVIA: I bet he did. But what about answers? The question Jones asked Smith. And the response he got, Little Hill? We know that Agent Loeb was infected, but we don’t know by whom. Jones says it wasn’t him. We don’t know anything.
BROYLES: You have a problem agent Dunham. You’re not easily satisfied, you want everything, and you want it now. In your mind, somehow a small victory is no victory. What you did was save a man’s life, but that doesn’t land for you.
BROYLES: I would tell you to ‘snap the hell out of it’. To stop whining about what you can’t know, can’t control, can’t change. I would tell you to get some sleep while you can because tomorrow, we’ll do this all over again, and guess what, you’ll have a million new answers and a million and one new questions. I would tell you those things, but I won’t, because your dissatisfaction is what makes you so damn good. Someone I’m proud to say I work with.
OLIVIA: Thank you
