Episode Quotes
Carter: His GPS log? Which I'm sure you obtained by by submitting an official request to the TLC.
Finch: Not quite. But if it would make you feel better, I could hack into your network and make it look like I did. It would only take me a few minutes.
Carter: Never mind.

Reese: Acosta, he's having a pretty good year.
Finch: Career year, Mr. Reese. He's top ten in OPS among infielders for the last three.
Reese: You're a baseball reference machine, Finch. You should get out more, take in a game once and a while.
Finch: Who says I don't?

Episode Goofs
Fermin crashes the left front of his cab into the Mercedes.
