Two Castithans are driving down the streets of Defiance and make a series of drug exchanges. A truck blocks their way ahead and they yell at the man to move. It's Nolan, Irisa, and Tommy, who have set the whole thing up. They search the car and find illegal contraband, and Nolan tells them to tell Datak that he's bringing him down...

Episode Quotes
Amanda: What the hell are you doing in my sister's room? I mean, I know what you're doing in here.
Nolan: I'm pretty sure that if you didn't know what we were doing in here, you would have knocked first. Hey, my eyes are up here.

Datak: When I choose to make a statement, I rarely leave it unsigned. It's hubris, pure and simple. A personal flaw, but my wife seems to like it.

Datak: When you people look at me, you see a wild dog. A fierce, unpredictable beast. Occasionally useful when you need to smuggle illegal weapons or find a missing person. But best kept on a short chain. He's not to bite. If you truly saw me as a citizen, you wouldn't have brought this blunt instrument to yank me from my sleep and lay hands on me in front of my family. You think you're better than me. You lack respect. And that... is why I will not help you.

Nolan: You know, I've had my eye on the wrong snake. You're the dangerous one.
Stahma: You're very sweet.
