Episode Quotes
Carter: John... one of these days, I'm just gonna shoot you.
Reese: I get that a lot.

Reese: You're not going to believe this, Finch. Shaw just got made by a 10-year-old.
Sam: What kind of a weird-ass kid uses counter-surveillance tactics?

Genrika Zhirova: Why would a small agency care what happens to me?
Sam: We're not any agency. We're just a... I don't even know what we are. To be honest, I'm only in it for the dog.
Genrika Zhirova: You guys have a dog?

Genrika Zhirova: You don't get scared?
Sam: Or sad. Or happy or lonely. I do angry okay, but... that's about it.

Simmons: There are hundreds of us, you know. You really think you can win?
Reese: Armies fall... one soldier at a time.

Sam: I'm just not wired for this kind of stuff, kid.
Genrika Zhirova: I know. I figured you out. It's not that you don't have feelings. It's just like... the volume's turned way down. Like the sound on an old tape. the voices are there, you just have to listen.
