Episode Quotes
Reese: I'm proud of you, Finch. You've really gotten comfortable with your breaking and entering duties.
Finch: Thank you for appreciating my descent into deviant behavior.

Reese: That's the second time Fusco's sent me to voice mail. Should I be offended?
Carter: Am I my partner's keeper, John?
Reese: No. But I'll bet you still have an opinion.

Finch: You know, Mr. Reese, it did occur to me we could leave the Drakes to their own devices.
Reese: Well, that's pretty mercenary of you, Finch. I kind of like it.
Finch: If that's the case, I may have crossed some moral threshold.

Carter: Uh, what are you doing?
Reese: Sometimes you need to break a few eggs to save lives.
Carter: Yeah, pretty sure that's not the saying.

Sabrina Drake: Where's your backup? Shouldn't there be backup?
Fusco: Uh... here they are now.
Sabrina Drake: You don't look like a police officer.
Reese: Thank you.

Carter: What is this?
Reese: Marriage counseling.
Carter: Why not just dangle them off the roof and force them to tell us how to find the hitmen?
Finch: While John would probably enjoy that option, it would be a temporary solution.

Finch: Although, though, unlike other couples, you've opted for murder instead of divorce. I suppose I should commend you for being so goal-oriented.

Reese: You know, Lionel, next time you have a date, don't be so melodramatic. I thought you might be up to something.
Fusco: Yeah, it's called a personal life. After taking a bullet in the ass and saving yours more than once, you think I've earned just a little privacy?
Reese: No.

Reese: Lot of mayhem just to figure out they still loved each other.
Finch: I suppose anything is worthwhile when life gives you a second chance to be with the one you love.

Episode Goofs
When Reese begins running at Daniel to knock him out of the way of the bullet, Daniel is several feet away from the book table.

But in the next shot as the bullet hits a book, Daniel is standing right next to the same table.
