    • Helen: It's good to see you. Jimmy: You too, Helen. I love the hair.

    • (Jimmy is examining Kate's chest wound when she comes to) Jimmy: Easy! Easy, easy, easy. I'm just … looking at the wound. We're gonna have to get that bullet out. Kate: We should get back to the Sanctuary. Jimmy: No, we'd never make it. In case you haven't noticed, there's a bunch of guys out there tryin' to kill us. Kate: Call Magnus, she'll pick us up. Jimmy: No can do, your walkie's toast. Besides, we don't know how those guys found us. They could be monitoring our communications. Kate: (groaning in pain) If you think Magnus tipped them off, then you're crazy. Jimmy: No, not her, but there is a leak. (pours alcohol on the wound, causing Kate to cry out) Till we find out where it is, we can't risk getting in touch … with anyone. I need you … (pulls out a short knife) to stay still. Kate: (gasps) Are you nuts? No! Jimmy: Come on! If I don't get the bullet out, you are going to bleed to death. Is that what you want? You do me a favor? (puts a gun in her hand) Take this. You point this at the door. Anyone comes thru, you blow 'em away, okay? And, um … you know, try not to move too much.

    • Mobster: Look, boss, we'll find him. Don't worry. Duke: Oh … I'm not the one that needs to worry. (rages, clubbing mobster) Ellison: Duke. Duke! Duke: Ow! (gasps in pain, panting) Ellison: (pointing to dead body) Get him outta here. (to Duke) It looks like those rage parameters need a tweak. (adjusts devices on Duke's temples) Duke: I … think I lost control … for a second Ellison: I'll run a diagnostic. Duke: Yeah. (exhales, calming down) And … keep monitoring the Sanctuary frequency. As long as Freelander is out there, I wanna keep tabs on 'em. Oh, and, uh … (holds up bent golf club) I need a new one of these.

    • Jimmy: Okay … this is gonna hurt. Kate: (wincing) No! Jimmy: Okay … (digs for bullet, Kate screams and grabs his arm) Come on, come on … You've - you've got to stay still. Kate: You got any morphine? Jimmy: Please, I wish. I could use some. (takes a drink from his flask) Here. (pours some down Kate's throat. She coughs, choking) Hell of a first date, huh? Kate: I've had worse.

    • (Jimmy revives Kate with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation) Kate: W- what happened? Jimmy: Oh, nothin' much. You, uh, stopped breathing. So, I, uh, took the opportunity to make out with you. Kate: Thanks. Jimmy: Come on, what are casual acquaintances for?
