Michael: (voiceover) Work around spies for awhile and you learn to be careful when it looks like your getting what you want. That’s when you tend to let your guard down, get careless. Calling the cops on someone can teach you a lot, a foreign agent would run, so might an armed assassin, and a bureaucrat is going act like a bureaucrat.
Michael: (voiceover) The thing about doubling anyone is that the more they do for you, the deeper they get. The deeper they get, the more you can make them do. Great if you're running them, but hard on the source. The suicide rate is above average.
Michael: (voiceover) It’s always easier to turn someone who works for a criminal gang into a double agent. The more secretive and ruthless their side is the better. You work on their fear of any hint of disloyalty will get them killed by their own people.
Michael: (voiceover) Working with untrained amateurs introduces an element of risk. It’s a risk you have to live with in a lot of operations, although you often found yourself wishing that everybody went through Green Beret training in high school.
Reyes: If I take 20 percent of my price, I give you 20 percent of the girl.

Nick: Jesus! Aw I’m so sorry! I’m so sorry.
Michael: Okay. Stop saying it.
Nick: Oh, God. I screwed everything up, bro.
Michael: Seriously stop talking. Stop moaning now. The moaning. It’s the ... Nick, stop moaning!
Reyes: Okay, so give me a number, a counteroffer.
Michael: I think I close it at a million.
Reyes: One million? That’s 20 percent of my price!
Michael: Hmm, you are good with numbers.
Michael: (voiceover) The art of turning someone into a double agent is delicate. The target has to be put into a fragile psychological state.
Lucio: Get this crazy bitch away from me!
Michael: (voiceover) Fortunately, fragile psychological states are a speciality of Fiona's.
Sam: That's a job? Housesitter?
Nick: Yeah. These people are only here a few weeks out of the year.
Sam: Okay, so do you need an application for that?
Sam: He heard that she had a boyfriend who could help.
Michael: He heard that she had a boyfriend that could help.
Sam: I was vague. I said I was a freelance superhero Robin Hood kinda guy.
Michael: That's vague.
