Hannah: Thank you.
Michael: For what?
Hannah: I don't know, just... listening to me and... being there.
Michael: You're stuck with me. I love you.
Hannah: I love you, too.

Vega: Oh, I look good on TV. Don't you think, Mike?
Michael: I don't really gauge the attractiveness of other men.
Vega: Okay, but you can appreciate a good cheekbone.

Bird: Okay, well, let's pull the phone and bank records, see if we can establish contact with the shooter.
Michael: Sound just like a real detective.
Bird: Ah ha ha ha.
