Episode Quotes
Mick Reese: Man, I love Brazil nuts. You don’t hear much about ‘em, but they reflect well on Brazil.

Orwell: Are you coming after my camera placement? Because, seriously, you do not want to come after my camera placement.

Vince: I--I need backup.
Max: Backup? Oh, so you're Gladys Knight and we're the Pips?
Ruvi: He’s a pip.
Rollo: Do you want me to physically hurt you?
Ruvi: Why do you go to this place of violence so quickly? Cannot there be a little bit of friendly teasing? (Rollo hits him)
Max: Rollo! An ounce of restraint.
Rollo: I was just teasing.

Scales: You interrupted Lasagna Night. And I like lasagna.

Marty: Seeing you in your white hat and six-guns takes the edge off. Helps folks see you as a person. A person with a sense of humor.
Fleming: I don’t have a sense of humor.
Marty: No law against keeping that a secret.
Fleming: Who is this competent sounding person, and what has he done with my head of security?

Vince: You're--you're dressed as...
Patrick Portman: It's a costume party. Heroes and villains. You were still fresh in my mind.
Vince: I like the utility belt, man.
Patrick Portman: Oh, Velcro.
Vince: Nice. It’s upside down.
Patrick Portman: I know. Can we just keep this between us? This is a little embarrassing.
Vince: Yeah, sure. I just never had a fan before.
Patrick Portman: Well, have a good life.

Patrick Portman: I am Secretary of Prisons and I am--I am off the reservation! So drop your gun before I blow your gizzards off.
Scales: I’m almost too amazed to shoot him... almost.

Fleming: You got staying power, Cape. Like a weed... or a cockroach.

Max: You know, after our last meeting, I had bullets in three different muscles in my chest. I'm allergic to anesthesia. And the only thing I had to comfort me while the doc took the bullets out was a a washcloth soaked in cognac and thoughts of what I would take from you the next time I had the chance.

Fleming: That was good. You're learning how to play.
Vince: You think this is a game?
Fleming: Do you think it isn't?
Vince: This is not a game. I'm gonna end you. You're not as smart as you think you are.
Fleming: God, I wish you were right.

Vince: What I believe in and what you believe in... sooner or later, it's gonna put us at opposite sides of a loaded gun.
Max: Well, let's enjoy the time before that day comes.
