Episode Quotes
John Bennett: Rachel. I've heard a lot about you.
Rachel: What did you tell him?
Bill: I didn't tell him anything. But if I did, I would have told him all the good stuff.

Gary: That's cool. It's poison spit.
Rachel: Yeah.
Gary: It's like a cobra. I like that. He didn't like that, though because it melted his skin. I--I'm being inappropriate.

John Bennett: I figured while we're on stakeout, you should get to at least choose how I smell. Which really sounded a whole lot better in my head.

Bill: What do you want me to do, huh? Sit on the floor, burn some incense, say "om"?
Kat: As much as I'd like to see that, no.

Cultural References
Hicks: Well, Rocky, try and remember why we’re here.

Rocky Balboa is the title character in the 1976 boxing movie Rocky, played by Sylvester Stallone.
