Episode Quotes
(The guys are hiding behind a laundry cart after the FBI gives chase)
Porter: You two are a long way from the luxury suite.
Tyler: We ran out of shampoo.

Jay: (after he sees the FBI pulling up out front) If we run, we look guilty.
Tyler: It's a little too late for that.

Cultural References
Jay: It is over. Do you hear what they're saying about us? Enemy combatants. If we go into the police now they'll send us straight to Guantanamo Bay.

Jay mentions being sent to the U.S. military installation at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where both confirmed and suspected terrorists are held and interrogated under suspect means. However, since both he and Tyler are U.S. citizens, they would likely be held in a facility on the mainland since the facility at Guantanamo Bay is used only for suspected non-citizens of the U.S.
