Mission Impossible: Fallout Quotes


So, if you have seen any of the previous Mission: Impossible movies, you know they have had some pretty cool quotes, right?

Well, this installment isn’t any different! Not only did I list some awesome quotes here for you, but I put them in the order they appeared in the movie trailer!

How cool is that?

1. Solomon Lane, talking to Ethan Hunt:

Solomon- “There cannot be peace without first a great suffering. The greater the suffering, the greater the peace. The end you’ve always feared is coming. It’s coming. And the blood will be on your hands.”

Okay, so you’re probably wondering who Solomon Lane is, right?

Well, he is a former MI6 Agent who turned rogue and is now the Supreme Leader of The Syndicate, a criminal organization. And, of course, you know who Ethan Hunt is, correct? Yeah, the guy that Tom Cruise plays!



2. Erica Sloan, talking to Alan Hunley:

Erica- “Solomon Lane escaped in Paris. This is the CIA’s mission. You use a scaffold. I prefer a hammer.”

Not much is known about the character, Erica Sloan, since she is new, but it seems that she is some type of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Agent.


3. Alan Hunley, talking to Ethan Hunt and referring to August Walker:

Alan- “You go rogue, he’s been authorized to hunt you down and kill you.”

So, Alan Hunley is a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director and current Impossible Missions Force (IMF) Secretary. And August Walker is a High-Ranking Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Operative who is on a mission to kill Ethan Hunt. Why does he want to kill Hunt? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out, silly!


4. Solomon Lane, in a voiceover in the movie trailer:

“When the clock stops, Ethan Hunt will lose everyone he ever cared about.”


5. Conversation between Alan Hunley and Ethan Hunt:

Alan- “Accept it, Ethan, you’ve lost this one. What’s done is done.”

Ethan- “What’s done is done when we say it’s done.”


Mission Impossible: Fallout Trivia

1. Only two actors have been in every movie

Tom Cruise (Ethan Hunt) and Ving Rhames (Luther Stickell) are the only 2 actors to have appeared in all 6 movie installments.

2. Accidents happen when you do your own stunts!

In August of 2017, during filming in London, Tom Cruise fractured his right ankle while performing a roof-jumping stunt.

Production shut down for about 8 weeks while Cruise recovered from his injury. (So, you know that Tom Cruise likes to do his own stunts, right?)

3. McQuarrie Returns

Christopher McQuarrie is the director of Mission: Impossible- Fallout. He also directed the 2015- Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation.

4. Say U.N.C.L.E.

In Mission: Impossible- Fallout, Henry Cavill plays the role of CIA Agent, August Walker. In the 2015 movie- The Man From U.N.C.L.E.- Cavill also played the role of a CIA Agent, Napoleon Solo.

Tom Cruise was set to play the lead role of Napoleon Solo in the 2015 movie- The Man From U.N.C.L.E.– but had to drop out so that he could film the 2015 movie- Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation. Henry Cavill was later hired for the role.
