Episode Quotes
Abu Nazir: You love him, too. Perhaps we have that in common
Carrie: We have nothing in common.

Brody: It's good that Mike was here.
Jessica: Yeah, it helped...What are we doing?
Brody: I don't know.
Jessica: Dana told me it was Carrie that stopped you from going to the police.
Brody: Yes it was.

Brody: What the f**k have you done to Carrie?
Nazir: Did you think it would be easy? That you could betray me and just walk away?
Brody: It's over. Get that into your f***king head.
Nazir: It's not over.
Brody: Let me talk to her, god damnit.
Nazir: Nicholas, calm down. If you want to help her you will do exactly as I tell you. I need you to get into the Vice Presidents home office.
Brody: Why?
Nazir: There's a treadmill in there. Somewhere near it there's a plastic case the size of a book. Inside it, there's a serial number.
Brody: How the f**k do you know all this?
Nazir: New York Times, believe it or not. Get me the number.
Brody: Why? Tell me god damnit!
Nazir: Walden has a bad heart.
Brody: So?
Nazir: His pacemaker can be wirelessly accessed with that number.

Dana: Turns out my dad is like a super spy and terrorists want to kill him or some shit...I don't know.
Finn: Sounds kind of insane.
Dana: Doesn't it?

Carrie: This is what you did to Brody, isn't it? A lot of pain, a little love. Am I supposed to feel grateful?
Nazir: I don't care what you feel.
