    • 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, but...you'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.
