Episode Quotes
Sheila Emmers: Now I think conman, or grifters--whatever they're called--are the worst people in the world.
Sophie: I wouldn't necessarily say that this guy was a grifter. I mean, it sounds like he's more like a common criminal.
Sheila Emmers: What's the difference?
Sophie: A con, or a grift, when it's performed properly, it combines elegance and style with a--with a classical imitation of legitimate enterprise, parody...
Nate: Ahem. What she's trying to say is that it's not your fault.

Eliot: Where's--are we waiting on Parker?
Alec: Oh, man, she's at that damned chocolate festival. It's like sending a crack addict to a cocaine convention. Girl texted me about an hour ago, misspelled every damned word. Look, "yu gedde yesh dis stuf." Probably got chocolate all over the buttons.

Parker: Hi, Hardison!
Alec: Um...hello?
Parker: Nate won't tell me what the name of the job is.
Nate: Parker, not now. Please?
Parker: Yeah, but what are we stealing? Is it "let's go steal a mountain" or a potato or a funeral or a panda or...
Alec: I told y'all not to let her go to that festival unsupervised.

Cultural References
Alec: I gave you my word as a member of the SEC, the BBB, and the JLA that we got a foolproof way of predicting the market.

The JLA is the Justice League of America, the assembly of the world's great superheroes of DC Comics.

Alec: Some people even call him "Count Chocula."

Count Chocula is the mascot of Count Chocula cereal by General Mills.

Agent Bob: Sure, Mr. Limpet.

The Incredible Mr. Limpet is a 1964 movie starring Don Knotts as Henry Limpet, a mild-mannered bookkeeper who becomes a fish and aids the U.S. Navy in the Atlantic during World War II.
