    • Danny: And they say models are all body and no brains. This is a perfect example of how wrong they are.

    • Mac: Withholding information! You've been chatting with Stella.

    • Mac: Did you know that Hawkes is a walking encyclopedia of tid-bit information? Stella: That's good. You can go to him instead of Google. So you started torturing him yet? Mac: It's testing, Stella. Just testing. All the rookies get the same treatment. Stella: So where is he? Mac: Right now, he's performing a little mosquito-topsy.

    • Stella: Hello Hawkes, how's it going? Hawkes: Job's great. Mac is...(dropping his voice) I feel like he's always looking over my shoulder. Stella: He is. Just don't look back. And know the answers to his questions before he asks them, which means you're also gonna have to know his questions. Hawkes: In about a week and a half, what you just said is going to make sense to me, right? Stella: You know, if you keep playing defense, you're never gonna get the ball.

    • Stella: (looking at a large diamond taken from the trachea of a corpse) Diamond in the rough.

    • Goof: The mosquito caught by Hawkes was a male mosquito so they should not have been able to extract blood from it since male mosquitoes don't bite.
