  • Quotes

    • (Mary is holding Clara in her arms)
      Mary: And that is the story of Sleeping Beauty. You know, Grandma once had to take a potion that made me sleep for a few days. But Grandma's partner had a potion too. And when it was time to wake me up, he put the antidote on his lips and woke me with a kiss, just like the prince. Grandma was on a mission. Can you say "mission"?

    • Ellie: So, tell me about the agent that kissed you awake on the secret mission.
      Mary: Oh! He was a big romantic. And the greatest husband there ever was.

    • (Chuck has just revealed to Morgan that Sarah wants to runaway and elope. Chuck and Morgan are sitting in recliners in Buy More.)
      Morgan: Is she trying to kill me?
      Chuck: I know! Elope? I can't elope!
      Morgan: Of course you can't! Who's going to be your best man?

    • (Chuck is holding back a sneeze while he and Sarah hide behind a curtain)
      Sarah: (whispers) Chuck, if you get us caught because you sneeze, we are officially the worst spies in the world.

    • Sarah: By the way, for the record, I will not at any point during this mission be dressing as a belly dancer.
      Chuck: What if you need to do it for our country?
      Sarah: I'm sure America can handle it.

    • (Montgomery is tied to a chair and Fatima is questioning him.)
      Fatima: And why would I do business with a CIA pig?
      Montgomery: Mmm. Because rolling around in the mud can be so much... fun.

    • (Mary cradles the child in her amrs while Devon is filming her.)
      Devon: Aw, Grandma's got the magic touch.
      Mary: Smooth and silent. Same technique I always used for moving live explosives.
      Devon: Okay, I'll just edit that part out.
