Episode Quotes
Daniel: In the beginning there had been only success. The excitement of discovery. And Kate.

Daniel: Walter Carlson was my boss. His way of handling people was about as warm as his corridors.

Walter: I’m having a terrible time justifying the price of Phase One. That gizmo costs a million and a half. I’ve got a budget that looks like ten pounds of fertilizer in a nine-pound bag.

Daniel: All right. I’m yours, for the rest of the evening. What would you like to do?
Kate: Go home and improvise.
Daniel: Is that a proposition?
Kate: Very good, Dr. Westin. And you got it on the first try.

Dr. Nick Maggio: You know what I remember, Daniel?
Daniel: No, what?
Dr. Nick Maggio: I remember you always saying you wanted to accomplish something that no one else had. Well, my friend, congratulations.

Dr. Nick Maggio: If it isn’t Halloween, you’re in a lot of trouble.
Daniel: Well, it isn’t. And I am.

Daniel: You know, Richard, you really had me fooled. The last person in the world I thought would sell out.
Rick Steiner: Everyone sells out. Carlson to the Pentagon, you to some outdated sense of morality. And me to money, the most honest sell out of all.

Walter: Why did you hit me?
Daniel: Why did I hit you? Well, let’s just call it my declaration of independence.

Kate: I’ve never spent the night with an invisible man before.
Daniel: With the lights out, you’ll never know the difference.
