Marshal: Could you hurry it up a little bit? Piper: I'm peeing as fast as I can. Marshal: Really? Because it sounds a little light.
Piper: No, I need to get a note to somebody and I am not sure what unit she is in. I thought maybe you could pass this to her. Darius McRae: What does she look like? Piper: 5'9", long black hair, secretary glasses. Her name is Alex Vause. Darius McRae: What are you willing to give? Piper: A kiss? Darius McRae: (laughs) Piper: This is important.
