As soon as he's secured, a Nigerian and his henchman come in and demand their money. Candi collects her money for turning Leon in and walks out. As the Nigerian prepares to cut out Leon's intestines, Leon warns him that they should leave while they can. Reese and Bear burst in and Reese makes short work of the Nigerians. He tells Finch that he's saved Leon, who wants to go a drink. Finch tells Reese that they have a new Number in Atlantic City and tells him to leave immediately...Read the full recap
Leon Tao: Are you the Nigerian scammers? I can't believe you're actually Nigerian.
Leon Tao: It's not technically a crime to scam a scammer!
Nigerian: But it is a crime to cut out a man's intestines and make him wear them as a hat.
Leon Tao: Wait. You--you plan to kill me?
Reese: I was an international spy, Finch. I know how to play baccarat.
Reese: Lou gave you the slip, didn't he?
Finch: When he deposited my keys in a tank full of crustaceans, I got the distinct impression that he didn't appreciate being followed.
Carter: I need you to tell me the truth about something.
Fusco: There's no Santa. It was your parents.
Lou Mitchell: So you think, uh, you think I'll be able to come back?
Finch: Maybe. Eventually.
Lou Mitchell: At my age, there's not much eventually left.
Leon Tao: It's not like I'm still crying over Candi, but it's always the same story, you know? You find a girl you like. She's tall, she's pretty, and it turns out someone paid her to handcuff you to a bed so they could murder you.
Reese: Same old story.
