    The second episode of "Breaking In" was surprisingly better than the pilot. This show does have a lot of potential with a story line as original as this one, but it just depends on how they work with it.

    We got a great cast but every one is either underused or not used properly. We've got Trevor Moore who has the potential to bring non-stop laughter week after week as he did on WKUK, but he doesn't in this show.

    Odette Yustman (Anabelle?) is also misused. Alyssa Milano's appearance was good and I loved the way they used the flashbacks in this episode. The shots are very fast-paced, which is what makes this show entertaining. In the comedy department, this show could do a lot better. Good episode overall.moreless

    The pilot for this show was a mixed bag from me. It was pretty bad from a comedy standpoint, but I thought there may have been potential there. All that potential was squandered by the second episode.

    The material is just downright terrible. Christian Slater and Odette Annable just come off as bigger than this show and it is painful to see them have to read these weak lines. Trevor Moore is another person they are lucky to have on this show yet they barely had him say anything tonight.

    The main problem is that Bret Harrison is just terrible as a lead. We saw it with The Loop, Reaper and we see it here with Breaking In. Hollywood needs to just give up on this guy.

    This show is not all bad, but they need to slow down. Way too fast for a show that has not developed a relationship with the audience yet.moreless

    • Cash: (to Melanie) You know, you're childhood sounds fun. Mine was ravaged by scoliosis.

    • Oz: I knight thee "Team Leader." There can be only one.
      Cash: Is that "Highlander"?
      Oz: Yes, it is, and so is this sword. I won it off Sir Sean Connery in a heated game of beer pong. Instead of beer, we used scotch. Instead of pong, we used rifles, so I guess we sort of played scotch rifles.

    • Cameron: How does he know what we're saying?
      Melanie: Yeah, Oz reads lips.
      Cameron: Of course he does.

    • Cash: Okay, here's what we do. We follow her out to her car when she leaves, get her license plate number, take that to the D.M.V., get her name, hack into her e-mail account, find out what type of bedsheets she likes, then we buy a set. Here's where it gets a little weird. We're gonna need a sample of her hair.
      Cameron: Why don't I just go talk to her?
      Cash: Like in Chatroulette? In person? That's ballsy. Cam, that's too ballsy.

    • Cameron: I work in security. I hack for a living.
      Amy: You're kidding. What a coincidence. I hack plaque. I'm a dentist.

    • Cameron: Where did you hear about that?
      Oz: Same way I hear about everything in this office... The old water cooler cam.
      Cameron: You're never at the water cooler.
      Oz: No, no, no. I have a water cooler cam.

    • Cameron: It's been a rough job so far. Apparently this old lady's house is a geriatric Fort Knox.
      Cash: No, I'll tell you what we're dealing with here... Super villain. Okay, if we keep this up, we're gonna be facing her army of monkey assassins, for real.

    • Cameron: You said for us to break into some crazy old lady's house.
      Oz: And you are. You are breaking into my old lady's house, and believe you me, she is crazy.

    • Oz: I could really use a hug.
      Cameron: And I'd rather not be put in a sleeper hold.
      Oz: Good. You're learning - never touch me.

    • Cameron: Are you even a dentist?
      Amy: No.
      Cameron: I flossed for you!
      Amy: Honey, you're supposed to floss.

    • Cash: This is so exciting. It's like we're cracking Al Capone's vault. I wonder what's in there.
      Josh: I really hope it's an Oz sex tape. I bet he goes slow, then vast, then slow again.

    • Cameron: Are you freakin' crazy? You had me date your wife? What's wrong with you? I could have slept with her.
      Oz: Oh, you really think you had a shot? That's adorable. Don't lose that.
