Episode Quotes
Kyle Davis: I just figured a guy like you would have... I don't know, an office or something.
Nate: Oh, yeah, I tried it once. Had trouble keeping it in one piece.

Parker: He'll trade his mob records for immunity and a new identity. Sweet! (everyone stares) I mean, evil, and clever, but bad.

Alec: No way am I giving up this life to be an ordinary person.
Eliot: Did you talk to Parker about that?
Alec: What you--why would I--No. She's the least ordinary person I know. You know. Shoot. Wait. Do I have to talk to her about stuff like that?
Eliot: Yeah.

Marshal Ellie Rose: They said that they moved in a few doors down. I didn't actually see anyone moving in. the house is empty and they were acting really strange.
Gabe Erickson: Acting strange? In Portland?

Eliot: After sunset, this field is going to be completely dark. No clear sight lines from the road. First thing to find a body out here would be a coyote...
Sophie: Okay. Now I'm scared.
Eliot: I'm here.
Sophie: Eliot. You're what's scaring me.

Marshal Ellie Rose: You can't go ten months without doing something stupid.
Nate: Actually, I thought he got terrific valuation on the car.
Marshal Ellie Rose: Shut up.
Gabe Erickson: Thank you.

Alec: The car?!? The car that's all the way over there?
Nate: Yeah.
Alec: You mean we got to run over there and get in the car, drive through a gunfight, and and pray that it's bulletproof like the Batmobile?!? (gunshots) Okay, I'm in, let's go. Go, go.
