Episode Quotes
Reese: I thought I just might find you here.
Samantha Shaw: And you decided to drop in for a visit?
Reese: Stakeouts can get a little tedious.
Samantha Shaw: And what made you think I wanted the company? The time I shot you or the time I ditched you at the cemetery?
Reese: I'm persistent.
Samantha Shaw: Or maybe you just can't take a hint.

Reese: A friend once told me, in our line of work, we walk in the dark. Doesn't mean we have to walk in it alone.

Samantha Shaw: You think I should have a hobby? Now, what would that be? Hanging around a derelict library with you, your poorly-socialized socialized dog, and Bear here?
Finch: Bit of a come down from saving the world, I guess, but we have our moments.
Samantha Shaw: Is this your hobby? Running a halfway home for retired assassins?
Finch: Hate to see talent go to waste.
Samantha Shaw: Awfully trusting of you, now, isn't it?
Finch: I'm quite confident, Miss Shaw, that you are the first person who has ever said that to me.

Monica Jacobs: May I? This was one of my babies. Completely rebuilt the interface, disabled the portmapper.
Finch: Secondary authentication?
Monica Jacobs: Added for access to the FTP and SNMP.
Reese: If you two would rather be alone...?

Finch: Ms. Jacobs, how are you doing?
Monica Jacobs: Oh, not bad, considering the company I devoted the last ten years of my life to is under Federal investigation. And, please, we breached firewalls together. Call me Monica.
