  • Hawkins: Let's agree on this. You don't make the terms. I do. And if you have information to share, then you just share it. But if you lie to me then know that I will find out, and the next time we speak, it will not be on the phone. Those are the terms. Voice on Phone: Agreed. Now can we move on to more urgent business? Hawkins: I'm listening. Voice on Phone: Good. 'Cause you're a day away from being caught.

  • Stanley: We're talking about booze and cows, here. Emily: The Stamp Act, the sugar act… Stanley: What are you talking about? Emily: The Boston Tea Party. Was it just about tea? Every revolution that's ever been fought, they started in rooms like this.

  • Hawkins: This is not some secret club where we just invite people in when it is convenient. Jake: Why don't you tell me what to do? Huh, just tell me! Eight people have access to that room, and seven of them are military. If you wanna get in there in the next twenty-four hours, you show me. Show me how.

  • Hawkins: I'm gonna ask for your help today, and that requires that you be told some very dangerous information. You should know that there's only five people outside of the Cheyenne government who know what it is that I'm about to tell you. And that there are those that will kill to prevent it from coming to light. Heather: Why would I agree to that?

  • Heather: The government, the army, the news… they're all lying about who's responsible for the attacks. Hawkins: Yes. Heather: You're telling the truth. Hawkins: Yeah. Heather: Who are you?

  • Beck: (on radio) Your brother tells me you want me to identify a sixteen year old kid with no discernable value as a confidential terror informant.
    Jake: If he's part of your investigation then Goetz loses all authority over him.
    Beck: Are you out of your…?
    Jake: He's a kid! He's a sixteen year old kid and Goetz is sending him to prison with no judge, no trial, nothing. It's a mistake, and you have the ability to do something about it, so I'm asking you to help.

  • Voice on Phone (about the file): Jennings and Rall put it all in one place. It was supposed to protect us, but someone got a hold of it. It took our worst nightmare and made it come true.
    Hawkins: Okay, how do you know about this?
    Voice on Phone: Because I helped write it.

  • Deputy Sheriff Kohler: It's Fort Knox back there. Jake: What is that? Deputy Sheriff Kohler: Thumb-print scanner. Getting that room ready to house classified information, pretty short list of people that will have access. Jake: Let me guess, I'm not on it? Deputy Sheriff Kohler: (makes clicking noise) But, if it's any consolation, you now hold the distinction of being the first Jericho sheriff, in history, who doesn't have a key to the sheriff's office.

  • Emily: The Boston Tea Party. Was it just about tea? The Boston Tea Party is an infamous event in American history. On December 16, 1773, in protest against the taxes and customs being applied to the colonies by the British government, a group of American rebels, disguised as Indians, boarded three cargo ships in Boston Harbor and dumped overboard 45 tons of tea, for an estimated loss of £10,000. This incident is one of those considered to have sparked the American Revolution.
