    • Madeline: You can't talk to us? In 20 years I have never asked any questions, but this is my home. It's not like it's some war in some country I've never heard of. This is your family. Michael: Oh-- I know.

    • Sam: (at a gay bar) How do you want to handle this? Fiona: Well, I think the balls are in your court.

    • Michael: (voice-over) When you're communicating in code, sometimes you just have to hope that whoever you're talking to is smart enough to figure out what you're saying. Use a code that's too simple, and it will get broken. Use a code that's too complex, and you're just talking to yourself.
