Episode Quotes
Hank: I didn't realize there was a language Boris didn't speak.
Christina DuMond: He has a few weaknesses.

Divya: Do you... do you know where you are?
Devesh Katdare: Yes. Now go away.

Hank: Wow, this fresh air seems to be doing you a world of good. Next time you plan to fake symptoms, could you maybe, I don't know, give me a heads up?
Boris: It was a necessary ruse, Hank. And I couldn't risk any bad acting on your part.

Hank: So I'm here as bait, medical bait.
Boris: Let's see if he bites.

Evan: Dude, you are an alien.
Brady Wilkerson: I think I'm all right. Oh, man.
Evan: Ummm, why is his (Brady) blood green?

Brady Wilkerson: I've been taking 300 milligrams of Sumatriptan every day, but...
Dr. Jeremiah Sacani: That's way too much. You can't take that prophylactically. Your blood is discolored because it has too much sulfur in it.
Brady Wilkerson: Okay, but if my migraines return, no one's gonna let me back into space.
Dr. Jeremiah Sacani: Well, then, you can't go back into space.

Evan: So you're not too keen in the interstellar nuptials?
Paige: You picked up on that.

Evan: Fido and Payload sitting in a tree. What the hell are those nicknames anyway?
Paige: Fido stands for Flight Dynamics Officer.
Evan: And Payload? What's Payload about? Or were you just a little hefty?

Divya: I need to apologize, for getting angry at you on the day of your fall. I was insensitive, and I fear that I drove you to the edge. Literally.
Devesh Katdare: Literally?
Divya: I am so grateful not to have lost you.
Devesh Katdare: Yes, my... desperate act failed. But maybe there's a silver lining.

Dmitry Vasilyev: So what is this new disease I have?
Hank: It's a blood disease called hemochromatosis. It causes liver disease and diabetes, and can lead to depression.

Paige: (speaking about Brady) He's open to negotiation, he just wants a deal.
Evan: Paige, the guy's a gazillionaire.
Paige: And he wants it to stay that way. So get your CFO ass over there and close this deal.

Divya: You didn't jump. You were on a chair, spraying the bees' nest when you fell, weren't you?
Devesh Katdare: I never said I jumped.
Divya: But you let me believe it.
Devesh Katdare: I was afraid... you wouldn't stay.
Divya: Oh. Daddy it wasn't just guilt that brought me here. I almost lost you.

Cultural References
Evan: (to Paige) Honey, it would be the first space wedding.
Brady Wilkerson: Well, technically Star Trek, but...

Star Trek was a 1966 science fiction television series that aired on the NBC network.

Episode References
Evan: (to Paige) Because, you know... you're our new office manager.

In episode 4x06, About Face, Evan reluctantly agrees to hire Paige to help him manage HankMed's business transactions.
