Episode Quotes
Jack: I didn't expect you'd have the guts to contact me.
Will: Oh, well, I'll assume that's a compliment.

Weiss: Mike, I'm not going to trivialize your relationship with her by calling it a crush--
Vaughn: A crush?
Weiss: But whatever it is, it's starting to affect me and if that sounds selfish to you, I was hoping to retire fully vested. (pause) I know you genuinely care for her. I do, too. But there is a line that we have been sworn not to cross. We're about a mile past that.

Sloane: (to Sydney) It was your duty to report Emily to security section. You didn't. And that's more than I did for you.



Episode Goofs
Sodium pentothal, a.k.a. the "Truth Serum," is commonly used to extract information form prisoners in this kind of shows. However, while under the effect of the drug, the patient may lose his inhibitions, but he does not lose self-control, which means that Will would not have told anything he did not want to.



Cultural References
Will: Look, just meet with me or find somebody else because I tell ya, I'm just sick of all this "Cloak And Dagger" crap.

Cloak And Dagger is a 1946 espionage movie, directed by Fritz Lang and staring Gary Cooper and Lilli Palmer.

Marshall: Open, Sesame!

This refers to "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," the adventure tale of The Book of One Thousand and One Nights where Ali Baba speaks these magic words to open the door of the cave holding stolen treasures and riches, just like the Rambalbi page kept in Khasinau's vault.

Will: Sodium pentothal. Like a truth serum?

First synthesized in 1935, the proper name for the drug is thiopental sodium. A yellow water-soluble crystal, it is classified as an ultra-short acting barbiturate, a type of drug that depresses the central nervous system, slowing the heart rate and lowering blood pressure; in other words, it's a sedative. Widely used in medicine as an anesthetic during surgery, it is injected into the patient to produce rapid unconsciousness. Sodium Pentothal received the nickname "Truth Serum" because its effects, guided by the psychiatrist in therapy sessions, caused the patient to become very communicative, verbalizing thoughts easily without inhibition.
