  • Chuck: Quick question, since you're here. Did you ask me to be Morgan's handler because... you were trying to handle me? Because if you don't think I-I should be in the field, I just need to know that, you know?
    Sarah: No, no, I asked you to be Morgan's handler because the job entails bringing out the best in somebody, and what better example for Morgan than you? So, no, I'm not handling you. A) Because you don't need a handler anymore; and B) because handlers can't do this. (kisses him)
