    • Kiera: You're under arrest.
      Kagame: For what?
      Kiera: For what you're going to do.
      Kagame: How do you know what I'm going to do?
      Kiera: Given your past history and your indiscretions, play God, change history.
      Kagame: I've spent my entire life making decisions that could affect millions. That's what I do.

    • Carlos: What's your guess?
      Kiera: Motive? Too early to tell.
      Carlos: Oh, play along.
      Kiera: Well, you clearly have a theory and you clearly want to tell me.
      Carlos: You first.
      Kiera: Fine. You think he murdered Ames and covered up the crime, but based on what evidence?
      Carlos: Based on listening to my gut. You should try it sometime.
      Kiera: I listen.
      Carlos: No. You watch and you calculate. Which is a good tactic, but I think you should trust your instincts a little.

    • (seeing a news piece showing Kagame)
      Kiera: That's Edouard Kagame.
      Carlos: The leader of the gang?
      Kiera: It's heart and soul. He's the one behind all of their activity. We need to stop this broadcast.
      Betty: It's already been in rotation, like 40 minutes.
      Kiera: Then it's only a matter of time before the killing begins in earnest.
      Carlos: Unless we find him first.

    • Maddie: (looking at dress in shop) Wow.
      Kellog: You like that?
      Maddie: It's freaking beautiful.
      Kellog: Let's go try it on.
      Maddie: Wait. You know, my mom and I, we're really grateful for your helping to fix up the house and paying off the mortgage,'re, like, old enough to be my dad.
      Kellog: It's not, it's not like that. Nothing like that. At all. I told you, your father looked out for me. He was kinda like an older brother. I know how hard you and your mama had it since he died. I'm just trying to pay it forward.
      Maddie: (smiles) Okay. Good.
      Kellog: Okay. Let's go try on some dresses. Hey, just do me one favor, okay?
      Maddie: What's that?
      Kellog: When you have a grandson one day, and you will, promise me you'll let him jump on the bed and eat lots of candy, okay?
      Maddie: Okay, I promise.

    • Broker: Your timing has been spectacular.
      Kellog: Well, maybe I'm from the future and know what's about to happen.
      Broker: (laughs) Yeah, well future or not, you, my friend, are now a very rich man.
      Kellog: (hands Broker a slip of paper) Here are the new companies I want you to invest in.
      Broker: Synthetic boot production? Disaster insurance bonds? What are you expecting, the end of the world?
      Kellog: Something like that.
