Episode Quotes
Estes: Your protégé. She's really outdone herself this time.
Saul: Have a seat.
Estes: I'll stand.

Jessica: She ran someone over!
Brody: I know.
Jessica: And she's trying, desperately, to do the right thing.
Brody: You think I'm not?
Jessica: I don't know what the hell you're doing Brody, I really don't. We told her we would go to the police and report this.
Brody: I tried.
Jessica: And when you didn't go through with it, what was she supposed to think?
Brody: I told her we'd handle it later.
Jessica: Well, we told her we would handle it now! We are supposed to be her examples of what's right and wrong.
Brody: I can't report it today, I told you --
Jessica: Right, national security. You know, you invoke that more than the President.
Brody: I'm doing everything I can. You act as if I have a choice in this -- I don't!
Jessica: Of course you do!
Brody: Tell me what to do.
Jessica: Tell the CIA to back off! I mean, you tell them your daughter matters more!
Brody: I can't! I can't, I can't!

Carrie: Brody, Roya is expecting you. You're already late. Brody, you need to go.
Brody: No more. I can't.
Carrie: You have to.

Roya: You're late.
Brody: I know.
Roya: You want to tell me why?
Brody: Not really.

Brody: You know how crazy everyone says you are? You're crazier than that.
