Episode Quotes
(to his wife)
Datak: I know you betrayed me. I should open your guts right here in front of these good people. But a vote is a vote.

Jonah Keller: Doctor, allow me to properly introduce myself. I'm special consultant Jonah Keller. Informally known as "Black Jonah." Perhaps you've heard of me. I'm a professional interrogator, and I enjoy my work to an arguably indecent degree.

Irisa: While he's distracted, climb the ridge and get clear.
Nolan: One rule: we live or die together.
Irisa: You're an idiot.
Nolan: I'm the idiot.

Jonah Keller: If you're playing us, I will scalp that golf ball head of yours and wear it for a hat.
Yewll: What's a golf ball?

Jonah Keller: Getting soft in your old age, Doc? Word is you used to dissect humans while they were alive and kicking.
Yewll: Yeah, yeah, yeah, I was a monster. I regret my past and I'm trying to do better. You should be taking notes.

Rafe: You're determined to get me shot, ain't ya?
Nolan: Yeah, it's a lifelong ambition of mine.
