  • Trivia

    • At the end of the episode Sydney said to Rachel "I see you tomorrow." The thing is that they were at work and they live together in the same apartment/house, wouldn't they see each other at home later and not tomorrow?

  • Quotes

    • (Gordon Dean tasks Peyton to intercept Rachel's imssion)
      Gordon Dean: Is there a problem?
      Peyton: It's just that it would be strange if Rachel and I crossed paths, she thought I was her best friend.
      Gordon Dean: If we could have convinced her to play on our part, we would have, but things didn't go that way.
      Peyton: So if I run into her?
      Gordon Dean: Show her the professional courtesy of putting a bullet in her head.

    • (Rachel prepares for a mission)
      Dixon: Are you about ready?
      Rachel: I've been going to the firing range every night, in the event the time came, I would be ready… Of course on my first solo mission, I have to go unarmed.

    • (Rachel's at the APO gym hitting the punching bag, Tom walks in)
      Tom: Oh, sorry.
      Rachel: No, it's okay, you can use the bag, I'm done.
      Tom: No, I really don't like to work out around other people.
      Rachel: I could use someone to spar with.
      Tom: I don't really… (sarcastically) spar.
      Rachel: Me neither, that's why I could use your help… I don't want to get my ass kicked in the field, what do you say? (both assume a fighting position) So how many fights have you been in?
      Tom: I don't know, enough?
      Rachel: Did you win?
      Tom: Of course… mostly, why? What have you been hearing?
      Rachel: Nothing it's just that I've never been in a real fight, I kind of want to know what to do.
      (Rachel throws a spinning kick at Tom, he grabs her and tosses her hard to the floor)
      Tom: Not that! Don't ever do that spinning kung-fu shit! You'll get yourself killed.
      Rachel: Okay, fine, then what should I do?
      Tom: Okay, for real?... I fight dirty.
      Rachel: Dirty?
      Tom: Go for the eyes, the throat, the nuts.
      Rachel: The nuts?!
      Tom: Cause as much damage, inflict as much pain as is humanly possible.
      Rachel: I don't know if I can do that.
      Tom: Then you shouldn't be here! I'm serious, everybody's taken care of you, if they can't depend on you, then go pack your play things and go back to mom and dad- (Rachel angrily sucker-punches Tom and knocks him over) That was better, I want to see more of that.

    • Sloane: (to Sydney) Look there's something I need to confess to you, I hope you don't judge me too harshly for it… Every day I go to visit Nadia… I get off on the floor, I talk to the doctors and yet… I cannot set foot in her room… can't bear to see her all hooked up to those machines… knowing that it's my fault.

    • Tom: You okay?
      Rachel: If by "okay" you mean "freaked and embarrassed," then yeah, I'm great.

    • (Rachel and Peyton fight and Peyton drops her gun)
      Peyton: You bitch! (They fight) You should've given me the disk.
      Rachel: You were going to kill me anyway.
      Peyton: Yeah, but I would have felt bad about it. Now...it's gonna be fun.

    • Gordon Dean: What would your colleagues do if they knew that you answered to me, that you were betraying them on a daily basis?
      Sloane: Same thing I hope to be doing to you some day.

    • Rachel: You're father's kinda scary.
      Sydney: Tell me about it.
