Quotes: Nothing Personal
"He looked not only anxious, but deeply upset…I hadn’t meant to upset him. I would have liked very much for us to part in a different mood. But there was nothing I could do to help him…Politics is a merciless business.”
Nikita Khrushchev's impressions of John F. Kennedy, 1961 Vienna Summit

Nothing personal. Just revenge.

"Nothing personal, but I've got orders."
Sword Man, Mega Man 8

"But we've got a job to do, just like they did. Business is business."
Gennadi Yegorov, Warrior Class

"Always business. Never personal."

"You're a stepping-stone... And I'm moving up. Don't take it personally."

Noble Sanfino: "And this conscience of yours lets you gain the trust of perfect strangers and screw them over?"
Jamie Reagan: "You're not strangers. You're criminals and I'm a cop."
"I'm here to kill you, not to judge you."
—"Conversations With Dead People," Buffy the Vampire Slayer

"Nothing personal."
"Sure it is. 'specially when it's me you're trying to kill."

Rumlow: (dual-wielding stun batons) I just want you to know, Cap... this isn't personal!
