Top 5 Alias Scenes | Phase One (2x13) - “The truth about SD-6” - 2/5
DIXON: Sydney, I got your message…
SYDNEY: There isn’t time for me to explain everything, for me to apologize the way I need to. SD-6 has nothing to do with the CIA. Dixon, you’ve been lied to. We have all been lied to.
DIXON: What are you… That’s… No, Sydney—
SYDNEY: You had suspicions about me! You were right! I know this is insane but you have to trust me now. I’d take you to CIA headquarters, I’d show you the files, the proof! SD-6 is part of the Alliance! You have been working for the enemy you thought you were fighting. This will take time to understand, time we don’t have. I need you to listen to me.
SYDNEY: They have my dad. Geiger at SD-6. And I’m afraid he’s going to kill him. (She starts crying.)
SYDNEY: The CIA… the real CIA…
DIXON: No, no, NO! This is CRAZY, Sydney! Do you HEAR yourself?!
SYDNEY: …has intel that can change all of this! Wait, Dixon, Dixon, you HAVE to listen to me! YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO ME! I can’t go back there or they will kill me too! We need you to go into SD-6. We need you to hack into the system and make visible a hidden file, one that you would never see, never know was there.
SYDNEY: It’s a code. A number that we need. If it’s a match to one we already have, it will confirm data and the CIA will raid SD-6 and every Alliance office! If you follow these instructions to get the code you will be in the core of the SD-6 computer network and you’ll see… it’s not CIA. It’s Alliance. I’ll wait for your e-mail but you need to hurry.
There’s no confusion or doubt in my mind, this is handsdown my favorite Alias scene. Phase One is probably one of the most incredible hours of television ever aired, and this scene just solidifies it. The way the music rises (Michael Giacchino - OMG, I LUFF YOU) and Jennifer Garner and her Emmy winning performance, screaming, crying, breaking down, barely holding it together. I’ve seen it countless times, and it still leaves me sitting there going…Whooaa. *mind blown*
