At the station, Carter receives a call from Finch telling her that Reese is downtown and needs help. He tells her that it’s an emergency and hangs up, and Carter heads out.

Episode Quotes
Reese: Good morning, Finch.
Finch: Mr. Reese. What have you been doing?
Reese: Corrupting Detective Fusco.
Finch: Does he really need any help in that regard?

Reese: Hello, Zoe.
Zoe Morgan: Good to hear you're getting some help. But I don't think there's a woman out there alive who could fix you, John.

Caroline Turing: I--I can't think. I can't move. This must be what panic feels like.
Reese: Here, have some chocolate.
Caroline Turing: Will these help to produce an adrenaline response?
Reese: No, but they taste good.
Caroline Turing: Who the hell are you?
Reese: Let's just say we both help people cope with their problems. I'm just a little bit more, uh, hands-on.

Finch: I know you're good at stealing cars. How do you feel about helicopters?
Reese: Been a while since I've flown. Might be a little rusty.
Finch: On the bright side, if you don't remember, it'll be a short fall.

Caroline Turing: I think I owe you an apology.
Reese: How do you figure?
Caroline Turing: I diagnosed you as paranoid.
Reese: Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not trying to kill you.

Finch: What do you want from me, Alicia?
Alicia M. Corwin: Nothing complicated. You created God. And now you're gonna help me shut it down.

Fusco: You can't trust us, how we supposed to trust you?
Reese: Trust is complicated, Lionel. For example, I'm sitting in a police car with one cop who tried to murder me and another who spent six months trying to lock me up. So you'll forgive me if I take things one step at a time.
