Episode Quotes
Al: Uh Sam, I think we need to take a trip to the little bank robbers' room.
(They go into the mens' room)
Al: I know that you're sympathetic with the situation here because it's your hometown and all of that, but Ziggy says there's a 73.9% chance that if you surrender you'll leap.
Sam: (shocked) Leap? Why would I want to leap, I’m home!
Al: But you're here to save the brothers, right?... So? You gotta turn yourself in!, right?... So?! Let's go!... Right?!

Sam: (out of breath) I'm out of shape, Al…
Al: Yeah well, next leap maybe you'll leap into Carl Lewis or something, but right now, you gotta suck it up.

(Gus is pointing a gun at Sam)
Sam: Why'd you do it? How could you steal all those people's land?
Gus: What you call stealing, I call business.
Sam: Guess it makes it a little easier to sleep at night.
Gus: I saw an opportunity, so I took it.
Al: What a nozzle! I'd like to grab his Adam's apple and pull it out through his nostrils.
