Episode Quotes
Nate: The thing about false hope is, the sting of it fades. Unanswered prayers, eventually, those--those go away too. But the idea that his parents could have done something, anything to save their kid's life but didn't? Don't let them carry that burden. All right? Let's not do that. I'll take care of this.

Nate: Parker, you know, you don’t let your feelings get in the way. You—you rotate problems—security, people timelines. You spin hem in the three-dimensional space. Like puzzle pieces, until they click. It's not the way I think, but... I trust your judgment. I really do.

Ellen Casey: I talked--we all talked to a dozen people today.
Jim Sterling: I've seen Sophie Devereaux play a dozen people. Drunk.

Nate: For five years, I've been... I've been...
Alec: Drunk.
Parker: Lying.
Eliot: You've been an ornery bastard.
Nate: Yeah, yeah, all that, all that. (to Sophie) But you--you have always, always had my back. Now... be on my side.
Sophie: Did you steal it?
Nate: No.
Sophie: Oh, cause that.. that would have been more romantic, right, Parker?
Nate: I'll, uh... I'll steal the first anniversary ring. Now, can I get up?
Parker: No, you've got to say it.
Nate: What?
Parker: Say the thing.
Nate: What thing? Oh, the thing. Will you marry me, Laura?
Sophie: Yes.

Nate: You know, Eliot, I'd say call if you need anything, but you never... never need anything.
Eliot: Yeah, I did. And thanks to you... I don't have to search anymore.

Nate: You're the smartest man I know. Don't get cocky.
Alec: It's a little late for that.

Parker: People like that--corporations like that--they have all the money, they have all the power, and they use it to make people like you go away. right now, you're suffering under an enormous weight. We provide... leverage.
