Episode Quotes
Winston: So who's this Donnelly guy?
Christopher: Just a guy.
Winston: Yeah, but he's a bad guy. See, 'cause that's a bad-guy bar, so he must be a bad guy.
Christopher: Are you coming? It's your last chance.
Winston: Hell, no. I hate bad guys.

Winston: Any idea how one would scan a photo into this fancy, expensive computer that Ilsa bought us? Look at this thing. I wonder if there's a manual for the manual.

Winston: She's got a few of these social-networking accounts, a couple dating services. Ugh, not for me. I get my dates the old-fashioned way.
Guerrero: Pay for it?
Winston: Church.

Ames: I dig your car, by the way. Cadillacs are so rock and roll.
Guerrero: I'll forget more about Cadillacs when I go to sleep tonight than you'll ever know in your entire life.

Guerrero: Go get my tackle box out of the car. It's in the exceptionally roomy trunk.
Lawyer: Tackle box?
Guerrero: Yeah.
Lawyer: This is... this is crazy! I don't know anything! I am a lawyer at an investment bank, for gods sakes!
Guerrero: A lawyer and an investment banker? Wow. I'm really gonna enjoy this. Have any allergies I should know about?

Ilsa: Why didn't you tell her the truth about her husband?
Christopher: She doesn't need to hear it.
Ilsa: Well, maybe she does.
Christopher: That's not what I'm here for. I'm here to protect her. That's what she needed. That's what I do.

Cultural References
Ames: Enough of the whole Don Corleone thing.

Don Corleone is the ruling head of the Corleone crime family in the Godfather movies.
