Episode Quotes
Fusco: I mean, come on, you gotta need something. Are we gonna bust John out of there or what?
Finch: Oh, it sounds like such a bad idea when you say it.

Reese: Can we just do this and go?
Kara Stanton: Okay, John. If we're gonna be partners, you're going to have to lighten up.
Reese: It's my first triple-homicide. Didn't know I was supposed to prepare jokes.

Donnelly: Is the earpiece not working?
Carter: I'm building rapport. That's how you get good intel. Would you rather I waterboarded him?

Byron: You know, this is the bastard that stole my dog.
Reese: Be honest. He wanted to leave.

Carl Elias: Can't have Agent Donnelly spying on our reunion, can we? I know all about his hunt for the "man in the suit." Personally, I think they could have come up with a better name.
