Episode Quotes
Skye: Who are we supposed to trust here? The deprogrammer with the rapsheet or the cop that we know is somehow involved with all this?
Jeff: Maybe neither.

Billy: Taking a life is a sacred act. Knowing when and how is one of the most important things you will learn. Killing to eat with respect for the animal is good. Killing anything in vain is not.

Terrence Ross: I got to admit, this is a new one, the whole TV show thing. Got under my skin a bit.
Jeff: Why is that?
Terrence Ross: There's a TV in every home.

Cultural References
Jeff: It's all very... Jason Bourne.

Jason Bourne is the protagonist in a series of novels starting with The Bourne Identity in 1980, written by Robert Ludlum. They were subsequently adapted into a TV movie in 1988 and a movie franchise in 2002.
