GOOF: When Sydney and Dixon go to Mexico to find Vargas, she says: "dile que el Triad le tiene otro trabajo" ("tell him that the Triad has another job for him"). In Spanish, the Triad is a feminine noun, so you actually say "la Triada".
Number 47: Di Regno's DNA profile was a code key that allowed the CIA to decrypt page 94 of the Rambaldi manuscript (94 is two times 47).
So, Jack recruited Dixon, yet Dixon never bothered to mention to Sydney that he knew her father was an agent, before she learned he worked for SD-6?
Vargas: (Gloating about a hit) Janasek was a learning experience. I found, if you remove the eye slowly, you can keep it connected to the optic nerve. He saw himself in a whole new light.
Carrie: (To Marshall) To tell you the truth I'm exhausted by the world. Everything...the evil and the rage and the darkness, and the last thing I need is some 15th Century dork telling me I've got a day and a half to live.
Jack: (to Vaughn) However, I recruited Dixon into SD-6. I'm the man who sold him the lie that he was working for the CIA. I introduced him to the man who killed his wife. I will not be the one to tell him he can't assist in Sloane's capture.
Vaughn: You're saying that 500 years ago Rambaldi drew the DNA profile of a man, who is alive today?
Sloane: I thought I'd have some satisfaction with Diane Dixon's death... I killed the wrong person.
Carrie: Right. (Pause) Are you gay?
Marshall: Why, is there someone you wanted to set me up with?
Carrie: No, it's just every cute guy that I meet turns out to be gay.
Sloane: I'm taking a leave. I want you to continue without me.
Sark: Sir, not to belittle your grief, but do not deny yourself the victory of a 30 year pursuit.
Sloane: If I don't see you again, Mr. Sark, tell Irina that I hope you both succeed where I couldn't.
