    • Hardison: There's the full non-disclosure agreement that Kristin's required to sign in order to get her settlement. That's a hundred pages longer than the one you sign for the CIA. The winery's just trying to get her to shut up.
      Sophie: And how did you get your hands on a CIA contract?
      Hardison: You ask too many questions.

    • Madigan: We're going to increase the output of this winery by 1000%. And for the pleasure of being part of that, you get college credit. Welcome.
      Parker: What? Wait--is "college credit" code for "you're not going to pay me"?
      Madigan: Get to work.

    • Worker: Here's the computer you ordered, sir.
      Hardison: My precious. (Parker glares) You--I mean you. You're my precious.

    • Hardison: Age of the geek, baby. I am the Grape Gatsby.

    • Eliot: Look.
      Parker: Who's that?
      Eliot: His name's Leonard. He's Madigan's right-hand guy.
      Parker: He has a very punchable face.
      Eliot: Yeah, I noticed that.

      sheesh, they need tougher bad guys. First the Walmart-ish CEO folds after one sleepless night. Then the guy in this episode panics and believes his wine is fake just because some woman he's known for a half hour hints that it might be a fake.
