Episode Quotes
Finch: Ah, welcome back, Mr. Reese. I see your time in Italy was a sartorial success.
Reese: What can I say? New suit, new man.
Sam: New Number.

Reese: Easiest way to get close to an event planner is to attend an event.
Sam: AWOL and air travel, and he hasn't missed a beat.

Sam: I'm a sucker for watered-down booze and a mini-quiche.

Finch: Black tie optional.
Reese: I'll steam my tux, and oil my... Finch, where's my spare weapon?
Sam: I moved it to the history section a week ago. Update your arsenal, John.

Finch: It appears that the storm has yet to pass, Mr. Reese. Will you be needing an umbrella?
Reese: Only if it doubles as a tactical weapon, Finch.

Reese: I can field strip a .45 upside down in the dark, Finch. I think I can handle a bow tie.

Sam: I'm inside Kelly's apartment, Finch. No sign of our girl. Looks... kind of like my place, actually.

Agent Alain Bouchard: I recovered the Bible and took down a cell of Czech extortionists in Prague. Don't know how I did that, but I'll take credit.

Kelly Lin: I wonder if I'll make it in the real world. The only thing I was good at was gymnastics and stealing.
Sam: Te only thing I was good at was killing people, but I'm workin' on it.
