  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (9)

    • Peter: I'm calling a truce. I may have rushed to judgment.
      Neal: Oh, you had judgment on speed dial.
      Peter: I'm trying to be gracious.
      Neal: You kept my severed tie.
      Peter: I was pretty pissed off.

    • Mozzie: (on the phone with Neal) I'm not an idiot! I scraped a titanium white from the Rembrandt, a midnight blue from a Vlaming-
      Neal: -Oh, you should get a monestial blue.
      Mozzie: You know, I should get a monestial blue. If you find one thick enough, feel free to let me know. Oh, that's right, you're not here!
      Neal: Breathe, Moz. How we're doing on the canvas, have you checked the Dali?
      Mozzie: Evidently, our friend Salvador liked to stretch time, but not canvases. I'll find something.
      Neal: I know you will.

    • Peter: What's step three.
      Neal: Step three is you arrest him.
      Peter: Oh. Good thing you didn't tell him.
      Neal: I thought you might like that.

    • Neal: I never say no to good coffee.
      Elizabeth: Okay, well. Then why don't I pour and you tell me why you dropped by, knowing my husband's not here?
      Neal: Hmm, I don't know... He suddenly doesn't trust me.
      Elizabeth: I don't know how sudden it is. You know, breaking out of prison, stealing the music box, almost shooting Fowler... You want me to go on?
      Neal: Not particularly, no.
      Elizabeth: Look, he wants to trust you, but you have this, I don't know, habit, of doing the wrong thing for the right reasons.
      Neal: What, you're saying that I'm impulsive but I have a good heart?
      Elizabeth: Maybe you could try to balance the two?
      Neal: You make a fair point.

    • Neal: (after Peter picks up Neal's severed tie from the trash bin) I've driven you to dumpster-dive?
      Peter: A souvenir of Neal Caffrey's imperfect moment? Priceless.

    Allusions (1)

    • (Neal and Mozzie are trying to figure out how to lose Jones, who has been following Neal) Neal: (spotting a bowl of green apples and a derby-style hat) I'll take a page from Magritte! This is an allusion to the 1999 movie "The Thomas Crown Affair", where Pierce Brosnan's character arranged for an army of men dressed a la "The Son of Man" painting by Rene Magritte to serve as a decoy to confuse the police and slip away.
