Episode Quotes
Stephanie: Too bad you already took your shower. I was going to ask you to join me.
Jim: Well, I might not be as fast as you are, but there are some things I'll still make time for.

Katie: Okay. I have so many questions about what's happening to you that I made a list. Is that weird?
Stephanie: A little.

Jim: I have a hard time lying to my wife, that's all.
George: Women don't want to know the truth! They can't even tune an Internet frequency!

Stephanie: The problem isn't about the powers. The problem is about Jim, husband and father of two, is out there using his powers to face hardened criminals, which is in my estimation...
Katie: So frickin' cool! He's out there on the street and he's kickin' ass... like Batman.

George: (after running Jim over for training) Okay, shake it off. Shake it off. Cool. Nobody ever saw what Superman's first day on the job looked like.

Stephanie: Such a bad habit. I've checked my phone a million times while driving.
Jim: You ever driving six hundred mile an hour before?

Stephanie: Say them. Say my three favorite words.
Jim: You were right. Until we understand what's happening, no more powers.
Stephanie: No more powers. I love you.
Jim: My three favorite words.

Jim: Uh, Where are you?
Stephanie: You know, out and about.
Jim: Out and about where?
Stephanie: Uh, you know the drugstore down on the corner?
Jim: Yeah.
Stephanie: Yeah, about five hundred miles east of there.

Jim: Trust me, you're gonna have the time of your lives.
JJ: You said that before. Right before our plane crashed.
