    • Frank: Look, Nick, uh, when I built the Gates, I attracted all sorts of people and the one thing that they all had in common is that, for one reason or another, they just didn't feel safe. Now, they're willing to pay a premium, you know, to have a place to that they can come home to at night and feel protected from the dangers of the outside world.
      Nick: Well, I understand that, I do, but what if the problem's on the inside?

    • Leigh: You really want to do this.
      Marcus: We've got to find the car.
      Leigh: Yeah, but we're not gonna find the car. You know why? Because the car's not here.
      Marcus: Chief thinks the Radcliffs are hiding something, and I trust his instincts over yours.
      Leigh: Yeah?
      Marcus: Yeah.
      Leigh: You know the chief killed an unarmed guy?
      Marcus: A guy about to go down for rape and for murder. E-either way, we don't know the circumstances.
      Leigh: My friend in the Cook county D.A.'s office does. Chief goes to bring in the guy for questioning, claims he sees him reach for a gun, and shoots. Department rules it justified, but the chief still retires. It's kind of suspicious.
      Marcus: I think we don't know the whole story.

    • Lukas: Hey, I heard about what happened at practice! It's not like you, Crezski. To violate the code.
      Brett: Yeah, you're the one to talk.
      Lukas: So I may not be a model citizen. But I've never revealed what I am inside the Gates. There's too many around that would kill for privacy.
      Brett: I know how it works.
      Lukas: Yeah, but you don't know how the pack works. Otherwise you wouldn't be with Andie.
      Brett: Look, you want to go, we'll go.
      Lukas: Easy. We're just trying to help.
      Pack Member: You tell him, Lukas.
      Lukas: Anyone other than coach turned you around today, you wouldn't be standing here right now. I think you should come run with us sometime.

    • Dana: You know, this move would be a lot easier on the both of us if you were a football star.
      Charlie: Doesn't seem so hard on you.
      Dana: Are you really that slow? I'm masking my true feelings with enthusiasm, so dad doesn't feel so bad. You should try it.

    • Claire: I should probably call your client. Let them know what happened.
      Mark: That their contractor crashed on his way out of the gates? Probably not the best idea.
      Claire: Well, is there anyone else I can notify? Wife? Girlfriend?
      Mark: Neither, actually. In fact...this may be the...closest I've been to a woman all year.
      Claire: Well, I'm sure it's just a matter of time.
      Mark: I hope so. I don't know how much longer I can wait.
      Claire: Well, I'm afraid you'll have to wait a little bit longer, because I...am married.
      Mark: Well, the good ones are always taken.
      Claire: It's funny. I didn't think you were the type to give up so easily.
      Mark: What about your husband?
      Claire: He's out of town.
      Mark: For how long?
      Claire: Long enough. (goes into kitchen) I kind of have a thing for kitchens. (the kiss, she bites him)

    • Sarah: Where were you?
      Nick: I was on patrol.
      Sarah: At 3:00 in the morning? Please tell me this has nothing to do with the Radcliffs.
      Nick: My instincts tell me that there's something going on with those people.
      Sarah: Your instincts nearly cost us everything.
      Nick: That's not fair.
      Sarah: I'm sorry, but you weren't the only one who suffered through the past year.
      Nick: I know.
      Sarah: Yeah? Every time that case was in the paper, your kids had to go to school.
      Nick: I know.
      Sarah: Then act like you know it. Act like you know that we went through. Our fear. The worry. Not knowing if you and I were even gonna make it. Nick, you promised. You said this was our second chance. Now, we've got a beautiful home and kids who actually seem to like it so far, but it's not gonna work until you understand that you are not just a cop. You're a husband, and you are a father, too.

    • Dylan: So, you would of killed him. The chief of police. We can't do this anymore. I'm gonna pack you a bag. You're leaving.
      Claire: I'll stop.
      Dylan: Oh, really? What, like last time and the time before last.
      Claire: You don't know how hard this is for me.
      Dylan: How is this hard? I get us all the blood we need form the lab.
      Claire: It's not about the blood! It's about the car pools and the school committees and the dinner parties and the book clubs! No matter how hard I try, I'm never gonna assimilate like you want me to. Not with these…people.

    • Peg: You alone.
      Devon: I was.
      Peg : You know why I'm here.
      Devon: A facial, perhaps?
      Peg
      : She's the police chief's wife.
      Devon: And in one simple twist of fate, she walked through my door instead of yours.
      Peg: You lured her in. just like all your other clients. Devon, we are supposed to help people with their problems, not exploit them.
      Devon: Peg, I owe you the world. When Frank and I divorced, you were the only one who saw me as more than Buckley's wife. You saved me. You taught me to empower myself through the craft, and I will never forget that. But I'm not your pupil anymore. And unlike you, my clients aren't complaining about anything I do.
      Peg: Because they have no idea what your tea is doing to them.
      Devon: Oh, Peg. I do think you worry too much. May I suggest a little lotus root?
