A collection of quotes of Brigadier General Glenn Talbot.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Episode 1.18: Providence

Spoken by Glenn Talbot

"This is Colonel Glenn Talbot, U.S. Air Force. I need to speak with whoever is in charge over there."
―Glenn Talbot[src]

Episode 1.20: Nothing Personal

Dialogue

"On behalf on the United States Armed Forces I order you to stand down! I repeat, stand down!"
"Colonel Talbot? There have to be better things for you to do than chase four S.H.I.E.L.D. agents."
"I wasn't a huge fan before chasing you into the damn tundra Coulson, I wouldn't push it."
―Glenn Talbot and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.01: Shadows

Spoken by Glenn Talbot

"They're fugitives, and they deserve to be punished. We witnessed the single greatest intelligence collapse in recorded history, George. We have a duty to the American people to hunt down those responsible. So, no, I don't sleep most nights."
"General Talbot, you said you have S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel and weaponry locked in a secure facility, so is it fair to say that S.H.I.E.L.D. and the HYDRA terrorists who poisoned its ranks have been defeated?"
"The corrupt institution has been dismantled, yes. We cut down the tree, we pulled up the roots, but let's just say I'll rest easier when we throw it all on the bonfire."
―Glenn Talbot and George Stephanopoulos[src]

Episode 2.02: Heavy is the Head

Dialogue

"Look, Hunter, we're pretty like-minded guys so let's not waste each other's time, you know what I'm after."
"I'm guessing it's not Carl Creel."
"Creels small time, think big fish."
―Glenn Talbot and Lance Hunter[src]

Episode 2.04: Face My Enemy

Spoken by Glenn Talbot

"Well if this is indeed as important as you say it is you should probably hand it over, along with any other HYDRA assets you happen to have in your possession."
―Glenn Talbot to Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.06: A Fractured House

Spoken by Glenn Talbot

"Now, I was here in 2012 when the sky tore open and the Chitauri rained down on us. Aliens. Aliens were running through the streets, and it was then that S.H.I.E.L.D. revealed themselves and stood with the Avengers, leading us to believe that we could put our faith in them, which we did. We stood idly by while they collected super-powered individuals, garnered alien weapons, built bases on virtually every continent. We thought S.H.I.E.L.D. was protecting us, but in truth, they took advantage of our good faith, and they still are."
―Glenn Talbot to the United Nations[src]

Episode 2.11: Aftershocks

Dialogue

"Sunil Bakshi... the man tied to the Navy wedding massacre, the U.N. attack, and who tried to kill you, Coulson."
"While dressed up as you, sir."
"Safe to say, I'm not a fan."
"Perfect. I'll trade him to you to add to your collection."
―Glenn Talbot and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 2.14: Love in the Time of HYDRA

Spoken by Glenn Talbot

"There is a mole on our base, this mole infiltrated security by posing as my wife and could be anyone in this room right now. Make no mistake, this is an enemy combatant, one not to be taken lightly. But rest assured I will find this perpetrator, because if there is one thing I cannot stand, it is a spy in my house."
―Glenn Talbot[src]

Episode 3.12: The Inside Man

Dialogue

"I'm technically your boss now right? But I'd prefer to be partners."
"You are not now, nor will you ever be, my boss, and we will never be partners! I didn't ask to get up in front of this sideshow circus."
Phil Coulson and Glenn Talbot[src]
"Alright. I kept up my end of the bargain, I delivered Coulson, all the delegates are on your side, now give me back my son!"
"I'm sorry, I can't do that."
"No! We had a deal!"
"Yes, but unfortunately, we must all be sacrificed to the greater good."
―Glenn Talbot and Gideon Malick[src]
"I had a little help."
"That's what partners are for, General."
"Call me Glenn... Occasionally."
―Glenn Talbot and Phil Coulson[src]
"I don't care what they call it. It's a dress. You must be loving this."
"You're the president's official representative. It's a customary way to honor them for hosting the symposium, and you look very dignified. "
"It's all loosey-goosey under there."
Glenn Talbot and Phil Coulson[src]

―Glenn Talbot[src]

Episode 3.20: Emancipation

"I'm here because the President sent me. The Sokovia Accords are the law of the land now and he's concerned you might have some undocumented "assets" working for you."
―Glenn Talbot to Phil Coulson[src]

Dialogue

"Why do you think this Lash can defeat Hive? And who in tarnation names these things?!"
"Every Inhuman is here for a reason and serves a purpose. I believe Lash's purpose is to kill Hive."
―Glenn Talbot and Lincoln Campbell[src]
"Do you have any idea how to stop him? I mean, you make him sound invincible."
"Calm down, General. You'll pull something."
"Calm down? This is an end of the world type deal. Don't you tell me to calm down. I'm the one that tells you to calm down. How are you so calm, anyway?"
"I'm getting used to this sort of thing."
Glenn Talbot and Phil Coulson[src]

Episode 3.21: Absolution

Dialogue

"I can tell by your beady little eyes that you're a worm, so let me be absolutely honest with you. If you don't find a solution to this problem, you're going to end up looking like one of those mouth breathers you made. Do you understand?"
"How could I not?"
―Glenn Talbot and Holden Radcliffe[src]

Episode 3.22: Ascension

Spoken about Glenn Talbot

This section requires expansion


Episode 4.01: The Ghost

Spoken about Glenn Talbot

"As soon as Talbot gave the location of this base to the president, things changed. I knew we'd be divided, undermined, kept in the dark, so I have been clawing for as much power as I can possibly grab to keep a modicum of control over any of this."
Jemma Simmons to Melinda May[src]

Episode 4.09: Broken Promises

Spoken about Glenn Talbot

"If you have nothing to hide, I'm sure you wouldn't mind us taking a quick look around."
"Actually, I would mind. Does General Talbot even know you're here?"

"It will once I return to D.C. Unless you have some paperwork from the U.N."
Jeffrey Mace and Ellen Nadeer[src]

Episode 4.10: The Patriot

Spoken by Glenn Talbot

"Coulson, we're initiating Contingency Plan Foxhole. Get the Director out of here, pronto."
―Glenn Talbot to Phil Coulson[src]
"Mr. President. We don't know who survived, but I've got our top agents searching for the Quinjet. Agent Burrows has the package, but we don't know if he was onboard. Yes, sir. Let's hope for all our sakes that Director Mace got it."
―Glenn Talbot to Matthew Ellis[src]
"Actually, we used a modified version of that formula you confiscated from Agent Johnson's father."
―Glenn Talbot[src]
"The decision was made that the new Director had to be enhanced, no candidate fit that criteria. So we made one."
―Glenn Talbot[src]

Dialogue

"Really, Glenn?"
"You should be thanking me. We're in the middle of an arms race. World War III is gonna be decided by whoever has more enhanced assets. You need Inhumans to trust S.H.I.E.L.D."
"And your plan to earn their trust was to lie to them? If you'd consulted me, I probably would have advised against that."
"Which is exactly why I didn't."
"Keep digging that hole, see how that works out for you."
"You needed a face for your poster. Fine. Your girl Daisy went rogue. The President tasked me with finding the next Captain America. Not an easy job, but I did it. I delivered a patriot A bona fide American hero!"
Phil Coulson and Glenn Talbot[src]

Episode 4.11: Wake Up

This section requires expansion


Spoken by Glenn Talbot

"This is politics, Phil. Which means politicians. They are a festering cesspool of toxic waste fires. You swim in those waters, you could get pulled under."
―Glenn Talbot[src]
"Keep calling me reactive, Phil. Half the time, I'm reacting to the steaming pile of fart-pebbles you hand me."
―Glenn Talbot[src]

Dialogue

"With Nadeer and her staff in the meeting we have an opportunity."
"What opportunity? I wasn't briefed on any opportunity."
"While Nadeer's in with Daisy, Yo-Yo and I will get into her office and plant surveillance."
"We can finally keep an eye on her, figure out her next move."
"What? No! No! No, there'll be no planting, no eyeing, no Yo-Yo-ing!"
Phil Coulson, Glenn Talbot and Quake[src]

Episode 4.13: BOOM

Spoken about Glenn Talbot

"I know General Talbot was hoping to replicate what was done to Steve Rogers, but... but you'll never be Captain America."
Jemma Simmons to Jeffrey Mace[src]

Episode 4.21: The Return

Dialogue

"We're not robots, Glenn."
"Yes they are! They're all robots! You assume each and every one of them's a damn C-3PO unless you hear otherwise from me! And this one, if she so much as BLINKS you take her down! Am I clear?"
"Is that really necessary?"
"Necessary? It's essential! Unless you can explain to me in 50 words or less why I found Jeffrey Mace's body washed up on the beach with his bones quake'd apart, days after I found this base in flames, flesh melting off of robot bodies! Twelve S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in critical with burns, or broken bones, three dead, double hits to heart, and crushed freakin' skulls!! ... Can you explain that?"
"...I can try."
Phil Coulson and Glenn Talbot[src]

Episode 4.22: World's End

Spoken by Glenn Talbot

"I smell a load of L. Ron Horsecrap. "
Glenn Talbot[src]
"Daisy, good ness! Is Coulson with you?"
―Glenn Talbot to Daisy Johnson (Life-Model Decoy)[src]

Spoken about Glenn Talbot

"The good news is that Talbot is alive, he's in a coma, but alive."
Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Dialogue

"General, I'm relieved that you're still alive."
"Three of my finest aren't so fortunate, and I have no idea what killed them."
"We lost good people, too. The short answer is they were murdered by a vanishing banshee made out of matter from another dimension."
"You expect me to put that in my report?"
"I have a cybernetic hand. I've been to an another planet. This happens in S.H.I.E.L.D."
Phil Coulson and Glenn Talbot[src]
