Bill asks Chloe to check out Audrey's activity in the last 18 months particularly anything involving Christopher Henderson and Walt Cummings. Chloe asks Bill if he thinks she has something to do with their conspiracy and he replies he doesn't know what to think. He makes his way towards Audrey and informs her he's going to have to take her into custody as two guards grab Audrey by the arms. Audrey is shocked and asks why. Bill says Collette Stenger gathered information from DoD and named Audrey as her source. He tells her they've already uncovered one mole today and has no other choice. "Does Jack know that I'm being detained?" questions Audrey. "Yes, he sanctioned it," Bill replies...

Episode Quotes
Jack: (to Collette Stenger) If you are lying to me, I'm gonna make this the worst day of your life, you understand me?

Bill: (to Karen Hayes) So we can torture our own people but we can't touch a criminal?!

Karen Hayes: That's right. You always put the work first, you never let your feelings get involved. Is that what happened with Nina Myers?
Jack: Nina Myers was a mistake, I've never denied that but she was deep cover for years before I even met her. She fooled a lot of people for a long time, not just me.

Jack: You might be right, Karen. But if I were you, I would think twice about who you're willing to invasively interrogate. Audrey Raines is a senior advisor to the Secretary of Defense, James Heller, who happens to be her father! And if you were wrong, he's gonna eat you alive.

Karen Hayes: If she's guilty, she doesn't deserve anything.
Bill: That's the point, she hasn't been proven guilty.

Jack: I have a job to do. If I don't do it, Burke will and I promise you you do not want to see him walk through that door.

Audrey: He had just separated from his wife and... I slept with him once and then I broke it off.
Jack: Why'd you break it off?
Audrey: Jack, please. It's complicated.
Audrey: Because he wasn't you.

Audrey: I was afraid that you'd think less of me, that you wouldn't be able to forgive me.
Jack: Because you slept with someone after you thought I was dead?!
Audrey: Because I slept with someone who turned out to be a traitor, Jack!

Jack: You have already lied to me once, you tell me what you know or I promise you this will become very unpleasant.
Audrey: I'm telling you everything. Go ahead, do what you have to do...

Chloe: What's with him?
Shari Rothenberg: Two years ago, we both worked for the San Francisco office. It was a sexual harassment thing.
Chloe: Miles?
Shari Rothenberg: It was subtle at first and then it got really bad.

Karen Hayes: If you ask me, she broke him and not the other way around.

Jack: Karen, you listen to me. This is what I do for a living and the first rule of engagement is that you have a contingency plan and this is his and it's working. You're getting ready to interrogate Audrey Raines when you should be interrogating Collette Stenger because she still has information THAT WE DON'T HAVE!
Karen Hayes: Stenger has immunity! She's being protected by a federal marshal, that's your doing, Jack! You made that deal!

Miles Papazian: I don't believe you.
Chloe: Believe what you want.
Miles Papazian: That would be sloppy, O'Brian. You don't work like that... She told you about my alleged sexual harassment, right? Well, she's lying. Listen...
Chloe: No, you listen. There are seventeen canisters of nerve gas about to be deployed somewhere in Los Angeles - we're trying to find them. If you interrupt our work one more time, I'll file a complaint with Division then you'll see what protocol's all about!

Jack: (to Collette Stenger) You do not wanna try me.

Jack: (to Collette Stenger) He's using you. He wanted you to get inside my head and it worked. And now I'm... upset. You have three seconds to tell me where the target is or I will kill you. WHERE IS THE TARGET?!

Bill: Great work, Shari.
Chloe: Congratulations.
Shari Rothenberg: Thanks. Did you see the way his hand brushed across my shoulder as he walked by?
Chloe: What?
Shari Rothenberg: That was wrong. He shouldn't have done that.
