Nate goes to confronts Victor Dubenich at the Renton Federal Penitentiary. Dubenich is expecting Nate and asks him if it’s special seeing his very first victim. Nate warns him that he won’t get away with killing his father and Dubenich says that there are three things that can be taken from a man that will make him kill: his business, his possessions, and his name. Dubenich smugly points out that he knows everything about Nate’s team, the team that he researched and assembled, and that he’s passed it all on to Latimer, his partner and the man that engineered Jimmy Ford’s death. Nate reminds Dubenich that he said the next time that they met, he wouldn’t be so nice, and then walks away...

Episode Quotes
Victor Dubenich: So, what have you been doing for three years? Playing Robin Hood? Know what I've been doing for three years. I've been preparing for this day.
Nate: Well... you'll have to do better.
Victor Dubenich: Better than killing your father? Wow. Tough room.

Nate: Do you remember what I said to you? Next time we would meet, that I wouldn't be so nice?
Victor Dubenich: Yeah.
Nate: Okay. Welcome to the next time.

Colin "Chaos" Mason: I want my usual fee plus expenses, and Parker dresses up as Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica.
Alec: Hey! It’s not happening.
Colin "Chaos" Mason: I’ll accept Sophie as Counselor Troi. We’ll negotiate on the flight.

Colin "Chaos" Mason: Wow, you are super old. Thank you for the history lesson. Maybe later, you can tell us about that one time you punched Hitler in the face. Parker, still yummy.
Archie Leach: I have two canes. One with a taser capable of delivering 10,000 volts. The other extends a 6-inch stiletto blade. (holds it to Chaos' neck)
Colin "Chaos" Mason: Which one is this one?
Archie Leach: Oh, I don’t seem to remember. I am super old.

Alec: It's like hacking any other network. We just find the weak spot. Then we...
Colin "Chaos" Mason: We apply maximum pressure to create maximum chaos.
Mr. Quinn: Can I hit him?
Eliot: Which one?
Mr. Quinn: Either one.
Eliot: You see, it's not just me.

Eliot: You know a lot of things, Nate. You don't know how this is going to change you.
Nate: You handled it.
Eliot: Well, you have no idea who I was before all this... started. That guy--kid--he had God in his heart, and he had a flag on his shoulder... clean hands. And I ain't seen him in the mirror in over ten years. And believe me... I get up every morning looking for him. So you can trust me when I tell you, you pull that trigger and two men die--the guy you killed... and the man you used to be.

Mr. Quinn: Hell, next time, give me the gun. I'm your huckleberry.
Eliot: Here.
Mr. Quinn: Little late now.
Eliot: I love that movie.
Mr. Quinn: Who the hell doesn't?

Archie Leach: No reason you should care, but I approve of your young man very much.
Parker: I do care.
Archie Leach: How does that feel?
Parker: Weird. But I think I'm getting used to it.

Alec: I hate you with the white-hot heat of a thousand suns.
Colin "Chaos" Mason: I dream you've died and I wake up laughing.
Alec: Sci-five?
Colin "Chaos" Mason: No.
Alec: No.

Victor Dubenich: You didn't kill the man responsible for your son's death.
Nate: My son would be ashamed of me if I was a murderer.
Victor Dubenich: Yeah.
Nate: My father, on the other hand--he'd buy me an ice cream.
