Fiona mentions that Sam's old bullet-proof jacket smells of "Old Spice and bourbon". As of 2007, Bruce Campbell, who plays Sam, does television adverts for Old Spice.
Michael: (voice-over) It's impossible to stop a good assassin from finding an opening and taking a shot. The best you can do is control where the best opening is, and sometimes that's enough.
Michael: (voice-over) Shoot a propane tank, and you'll just get a cloud of cold gas. You need an open flame and real good aim.
Michael: (voice-over) Remove the trigger bar spring from a SIG-Sauer P228, and you've got a 9mm semi-automatic door stop.
Michael: (voice-over) A basic rule of covert ops is let someone do your dirty work, let someone else find the guy you want to kill. It's a great technique, as long as you're not the someone else.
Michael: (voice-over) Facts are the hallmark of a good false identity. It is harder to create history than it is to alter it. Plus, the more truth to your lie, the easier it is to remember.
Fiona: Admit it Michael, you need me. You don't even have your own hairpin!
Michael: (voice-over) Co-operations need spies just like governments do. Of course they are not called spies, they are called security consultants. They are basically mercenaries with nice suits.
Michael: (voice-over) A guy with a gun is a guy with a gun. You can fight him and risks someone being shot, or wait for back-up.
Michael: (voice-over) A fake identity is known in spy trade as a false flag. Used to be you can make your own documents with a printer and a laminator. These days though, IDs have magnetic strips, holograms and infrared watermarks. You need a pro.
Michael: (voice-over) Assassination is 1% shooting and 99% preparation. Anticipating moves, devising approaches, recruiting sources; finding the perfect opportunity so the bullet's almost an afterthought. Usually that's when targets are on the move, when there are too many variables to control them all.
Michael: (voice-over) One of the things you learn in training is to avoid situations that cut too close. If you had a rough childhood, a situation with an abusive father and a vulnerable kid is gonna make you angry. That could be motivating. But it can also be dangerous.
Michael: How's my Mom?
Sam: Locked up cozy and tight with a cigarette and a shotgun. Ready to kill anything that walks through the door.
Fiona: Evelyn comes along and she's attractive, sweet, needy. Don't deny it.
Fiona: Isn't it interesting she turned out to be who she turned out to be. What shall we make of that?
Michael: You made your point, Fi.
Fiona: Did I?
Michael: Yep, you did.
Fiona: Doug is sleeping peacefully.
Michael: You gave him something.
Fiona: Maybe, well, half of something.
Michael: Sam, I need you to call the US attorney and tell them we're bringing in Doug tomorrow morning.
Sam: I'm on it.
Michael: And, uh, someone needs to go to my Mom's. See that she's safe, make sure her house is secure.
Sam: Think she's cooked dinner yet?
Michael: I'm sure she'll heat something up for you, Sam.
Sam: Well, then I'm on that, too.
Michael: Fi, I need you to prep an armed escort. Doug! I need you to stay away from the windows!
Michael: (voice-over) Just because there are no windows or doors doesn't mean there are no exits. The thing to look for is an air conditioner unit, that's where the wall is weakest. Also, people watch doors, they don't watch air conditioners.
Michael: I can't talk about this right now.
Fiona: Why not?
Michael: Because I have a hard time focusing when I'm in handcuffs!
Sam: Here ya go, Doug: my lucky vest.
Michael: It'll look great over my shirt.
Sam: It's a little worn, but it'll do the trick.
Doug: Are these bullet holes?
Sam: Yeah, I broke it in for ya.
