Episode Quotes
Carroll: I just wanted to see how your friend Agent Weston was doing. I heard that he took quite a--quite a beating.
Ryan: He's expected to make a full recovery.
Carroll: Oh. Oh, that's good to hear.
Ryan: Sorry about your friends, though. They're kind of... dead.
Carroll: That's okay. I have more.

Amanda Porter: Ryan, it doesn't work that way. She has to die. because you have to be punished. You slept with Joe's wife, and between you and me, I don't take that lightly!
Ryan: Let her go, that's not Joe's wife!
Amanda Porter: It's a freakin' metaphor, Ryan!
