Episode Quotes
Agent Deidre Mitchell: Hey, Ryan, you remember Brad Pitt. That was a Fight Club reference.
Mike: Yeah, I got that. Almost immediately.
Ryan: How're you feeling?
Mike: Yeah, I'm good. It only hurts when I walk or talk, or breathe.

Debra: That's how you reach the highest level of Carrolism.
Ryan: Did you just give Joe's religion a name?
Debra: Got to call it something.

Ryan: This is sloppy of you, Joe.
Carroll: No, this is insane of me.

Carroll: Then what... what drives you?
Ryan: What drives you?
Carroll: Death. death does. It, uh, it fuels me.
Ryan: Me, too. Isn't that what you want to hear? It fuels me, too.
Carroll: We both seek it out.
Ryan: No, no... I don't--I don't seek it out.
Carroll: Oh, yes, you do. It motivates your--your every move, Ryan. But why? that's--that's what we all want to know. What did you do to deserve your place in life?
Ryan: Nothing. It just is.
Carroll: We are... so alike, Ryan. It is through death that we both live.

Mike: I went too far, I know. Not used to almost dying. Makes it harder to do the right thing.



Cultural References
Agent Mitchell: That was a Fight Club reference.

Fight Club is a novel (1996) by Chuck Palahniuk, subsequently made into a movie in 1999. The unnamed protagonist, unable to sleep, falls under the influence of the mysterious Tyler Durden, and together they establish an underground fight club for men seeking violence as a form of therapy.
