Episode Quotes
(as they scale a wire fence)
Pete: Whoa. Hello.
Myka: Careful. Just don't damage the one thing that Kelly's looking forward to.
Pete: Nah, Little Pete's made of steel.

Artie: Leena, this one is ready to be shelved.
Leena: A tin of sardines?
Artie: Yes, it was part of the Shackleton expedition. They were trapped in the ice, you know, for two years. They still had the good sense not to open that.
Leena: Had the sardines gone bad?
Artie: Very bad.

Artie: That is, uh, very well done.
Claudia: Well, we're a team. Claudia and Artie. "Clautie." "Ardia"?
Artie: Pack.
Claudia: Yeah.

Pete: What is that?
Myka: That is the world's smallest purple violin.
Pete: You know, one day you're going to make some lucky guy a very sarcastic wife.

Pete: Wow, I didn't know the warehouse had a canned food aisle. Ooh, red herrings, huh? Bet that case was really hard to solve.

Pete in Myka: Oh, yeah. we definitely switched bodies.
Myka in Pete: Pete, get your hands off my breasts.
Pete in Myka: Myka, how'd you know that?
Myka in Pete: Because you're still you and I'm still me, even though we're in different bodies.

Kurt Smoller: Okay, don't take this the wrong way, but until tonight, I had no idea you were so much fun.
Pete in Myka: Dude, until tonight, I wasn't that much fun.

Artie: Like I don't know how to improvise an electromagnet. I was doing this when MacGyver was still trapped in his crib.

Cultural References
Claudia: Holy gams, Batman.

The 1960s Batman series had Robin regularly saying "Holy [fill-in-the-blank]!" with some kind of expression relevant to what he was describing.

Artie: I was doing this when MacGyver was still trapped in his crib.

MacGyver is the cult non-violent action-adventurer of his own 1980s television series. The character is best known for his ability to improvise high-tech solutions out of everyday objects.
