Episode Quotes
Rachel: There's too much traffic. Gary, we're going to have to run.
Gary: No, we just ate. You're not supposed to run after you eat.
Rachel: Please, Gary.
Gary: It's a medical fact!

Cameron: So I was going to say that I was just in the neighborhood, but I think we both know that's BS. Because... I don't hang out in this neighborhood. Hell, I can barely afford to walk down the sidewalk.

Gary: Don't laugh.
Bill: I'm--I'm not laughing.
Gary: It's not fair.
Bill: I'm laughing near you, I'm not laughing at you.

Sara Nelson: Why didn't you call someone before you went after that guy?
Bill: Because I was...
Agent Lou Persky: Because he wants to take credit for the arrest for himself.
Bill: Oh yeah?
Agent Lou Persky: Yeah. Trying to weasel your way back into the Bureau on my case. That takes balls.
Gary: Ha. He said "balls." That's a good joke.

Bill: I told 'em.
Rosen: You told them what?
Bill: Come on, you know. So why don't you just say it? Go ahead, come on, I want to hear you.
Rosen: But Bill...
Bill: "Bill, you know, well, given the choice, uh, you've decided to stay. And, uh, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, science and..."
Rosen: Well, sounds like me, minus the "blah, blah, blah." But you know, Bill, I'm a professional. I can gloat in private.
