At the B&B, Todd and Claudia are kissing on the sofa, but she admits she's distracted because the warehouse is getting a computer upgrade.

Claudia takes off to meet with the guy who is coming to do the update, someone from Global Dynamics...

Episode Quotes
Douglas Fargo: I was going to install it with your system, but your boss vetoed it.
Claudia: Yeah, Artie would have vetoed fire if he'd been born just a couple years earlier.

Artie: This is all your fault, Bismarck.
Douglas Fargo: Fargo. And it is not my fault.

Myka: Do you know every former Warehouse agent we've ever known is either crazy, evil, or dead?
Pete: Or all three.

Hugo Miller: I know who you are. You're President Ulysses S. Grant and the Snowman. You've come because it's Arbor Day and there aren't enough zippers to go around.
Myka: Well, at least he's not evil or dead.
Pete: Yet.

Hugo One: Claudia Donovan, your file shows nine separate incident reports.
Claudia: Actually, I thought it would be more.
Douglas Fargo: I guess he's got your number.
Hugo One: Douglas Fargo. Your Global Dynamics profile includes the phrase "inappropriately pushed button" 38 times.

Pete: Soda pop go boooomm.
Myka: Pete, are you okay?
Leo: What's he talking about?
Myka: I don't know.
Pete: Blast off with Lemon Launch. Bwoosh. Remember? Huh. Hugo makes his own lemony launches. Houston, we have a problem.
Leo: What's wrong with him?
Myka: Do not get me started.

Claudia: We're the two biggest techno-brains in the Dakotas and we're totally getting our asses kicked by Colossus.
Douglas Fargo: That ring you have? Can it amplify anything other than human energy?
Claudia: Like for instance?
Douglas Fargo: For instance... a laser.
Claudia: Marry me.

Claudia: I like you, Fargo, I do. But when we kissed, I was totally thinking of Todd. I really like him. He's not just some guy. He's the guy I think about when I impulsively kiss guys I just met.

Pete: Oh, man. I knew this was going to happen some day. The computers have taken over. Step one, kill Pete and Myka.. Step two, unleash the nuclear arsenal, and then bam! Pretty soon we're all in human breeding camps wearing fur bikinis.
Myka: You know, sometimes I think your brain is the artifact.

Myka: Do you ever think about our future here? Like, how do we not end up with our brains scrambled, or blown up, or whatever new way to die there could be?
Pete: Well, look at the bright side. I'm usually within 10' of you, so whatever terrible thing happens to you will probably happen to me, too.
Myka: Comforting.

Hugo Miller: Billy Jack!

Line spoken by Hugo Miller when Myka kicks the convenience store clerk in the face, similar to the move made by the lead character in Billy Jack, a 1971 movie starring Tom Laughlin.
