Episode Quotes
Sydney: (about Sloane) I just wanted to rip his finger right off again. Does that make me a bad person?
Vaughn: No. That might have blown your cover.
Sydney: (chuckles) You think?

Will: (about his hickey) It's very embarrassing.
Sydney: The fact that I saw it or just that it's there at all?
Will: No, look at it. I feel like I'm 15 years old.
Sydney: That's about the age of your intern.
Will: When I said 15, I knew you would say--
Sydney: Did the Clinton administration teach you nothing?

Marshall: I mean, casino security is like an onion. It's layer after layer after layer and the more that you peel back, the more you want to cry.

(Dixon's cover has been compromised)
Manager: Your attaché just called. Apparently, you're stuck in Jamaica.
Dixon: I suppose there are worse places to be stuck.

(Sydney is sliding across a wire on the top of the two buildings)
Dixon: How's it hanging, Syd?
Sydney: Very funny.



Cultural References
Sydney: Did the Clinton administration teach you nothing?

Sydney is comparing Will's affair with his intern to the sex scandal involving former President of the U.S. Bill Clinton and his then intern Monica Lewinsky that came to light only in 1998.

"F. Scott Fitzgerald A Tragic Hero"

Sydney's report on Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was titled "A Tragic Hero" which is one recurring theme in his works, most notability in The Great Gatsby.

Sloane: Learning that information and getting a visual I.D. of The Man is our top priority. I'm tired of referring to him as The Man. I want to know who he is.

"The Man" May be a reference to a short lived 1960s spy drama known as Burke's Law where in Burke, a secret agent answered to one person known only as "The Man."
