Episode Quotes
Reese: What's wrong with my other suits?
Finch: They're fine for a hired assassin, Mr. Reese. Just not for this particular job.

Reese: I don’t know anything about Wall Street.
Finch: Well, here’s a start. Although it doesn’t really matter. Banking is mostly looking clever and wearing the right clothes. And we’ve managed the second part.

Harold uses another bird alias, Crane.
