Episode Quotes
Becky: Right. Shall we wait for Jessica?
Wilson: What for? I can break in.
Grant: Yeah? Well I can break in, as well.
Becky: Jesus Christ. Am I the only one who can't break into houses?
Wilson: I'll teach you if you want.

Ian: Wilson, I work with computers, I know what I'm...
Wilson: You're an IT consultant, Ian. If I want to know how to make a printer work, I'll let you know.

Ian: All right, I'll tell you what. I'll say it. I like you. There. I said it, it's out. So now you can punch me, or give me a Chinese burn, or just--just kick me in my balls.
Becky: I reckon you'd like that.

Ian: What difference does it make who Mr. Rabbit is?
Milner: There's a story about how he got his name. He was in bed with a criminal underworld in Kwang Dong. But he was playing everyone off against each other. The Russians, CIA, the gangs. So the Americans got fed up, and they let a particularly nasty crime boss know that he was their man. The boss found him, dragged him off the street--right through the middle of a busy office block. They tortured him, and as a lesson to others, the boss carved his own name into this man's stomach. "Rabbit." Ever seen the Chinese character for "rabbit," Ian? Lots of lines, lots of cuts. Somehow he managed to get free and, despite being unarmed, he killed everyone in that room. Then he went back through the office block and killed everyone who'd seen him. By the time he was finished, 265 people on three continents had lost their lives and not a single living person knew his identity. That's who Mr. Rabbit is. He is the beating heart of all this. And if we can find his identity, it ends and you go home.

Geoff: Michael, if you work with me, there's a really good chance that I can make your life wonderful. But if you work against me just one more time, I will make your life over.
