Episode Quotes
Reese: I've never seen you like this. That hacker must have gotten to you.
Finch: Only the paranoid survive. Sage advice.

Reese: Morning, Detective. Miss me?
Carter: You know, I always pictured you in the back of my car... in handcuffs.
Reese: Well, to each his own.

Reese: Witnesses can ID the shooters. They're just too scared.
Finch: Why would they want to talk to you?
Reese: I have my ways.

Andre Wilcox: 'Cause being a superhero's not about a cape or a cowl. It's about protecting your fellow man, looking out for him when no one else will.

Reese: Never said I was a cop.
Darren McGrady: So, what are you, then?
Reese: One of these days I'll have to come up with a good answer for that one.

Reese: The higher up you go, the harder it gets to tell the good guys from the bad.

Darren McGrady: Sorry I thought you were a cop.
Reese: Nothing wrong with cops... just bad ones.

Reese: Finch, Darren's run off, probably to go after Brick again. And this time he's got the gun they used to kill his brother.
Finch: In other words, the idea of letting a 14-year-old hire you to avenge his brother has backfired?
Reese: You can lecture me later. Right now I need you to bring me the bag.
Finch: Which bag?
Reese: The one labeled "Plan B."

Andre Wilcox: I don't blame you. I blame the store. Kids spending their days reading these revenge stories, selling it like it's reality, but you know the thing about comic books? They're just comics.

Reese: You know, Lionel... you could have been a good cop if not for a few bad choices.
Fusco: You got me snooping around my boss, but I make bad choices?
Reese: Man has a point.
