Episode Quotes
Wu: Thanks for coming.
Nick: Eh, we couldn’t figure out a way to get out of it.
Hank: That’s why we brought chocolate and flowers.
Wu: Oh, where are they?
Nick: Oh, we didn’t buy them for you.
Hank: It’s our reward for coming here.

Wu: Oh, so you guys saved my ass.
Hank: Yeah. That’s why I ate the chocolate. He kept the flowers.

Zuri Ellis: I guess you, uh, haven’t had many home cooked meals.
Hank: Well, I can defrost. I can fry water.

Wu: I really appreciate this.
Nick: Hey, we’re here for you. We are here for him, right?
Hank: Yeah, most of the time. I mean, we paid for the burger.
Nick: And the fries. Don’t forget the fries.
Wu: Ah, you guys are awesome.
Hank: Ooh, that sounded insincere.
Nick: Nah, I think he meant it.

Nick: Will you please take the day off. I mean, Portland will survive one day without you.
Wu: And what if it doesn't?
Hank: Then we'll know who to blame.

Monroe: Yeah, yeah. Bad memories are like... you know, little bunnies. They get scared, they run back down the hole, they hide, they can be a bitch to get out again.
Hank: Bunnies?
