Vogel: This is a sovereign territory of Communist China, that ours believe was responsible for the Blackout.
Demetri: I take it you're here to offer your help, is what you're saying.
Vogel: Go home, is what I'm saying.
Simon: You know they're going to crucify us?
Lloyd: What's a little mob between friends?
Simon: I do not believe we caused the Blackout.
Stan: Well, you probably shouldn't have stood up in front of a crowd of reporters and said you did.
Stan: How about this? You come back tomorrow, I'll have something to show you, we make some progress. I'll see what I can do about an official role.
Simon: Because I do like you, Assistant Director Wedeck, I will accept your disingenuous offer.
Mark: The, uh, woman we're looking for, she has information we need. It's a matter of life and death.
Samad: I'm so sorry. I can't help you with that.
Mark: You have it backwards. If you can't help, you will be sorry.
Stan: We've given these to our top-level analysts. They haven't been able to tell us anything useful about them...
Simon: Well, it's a good thing I'm smarter than they are.
Simon: Hmmm. A techie, chess-playing, social misfit physicist. Well, that should narrow it down.
Nhadra: You shouldn't have come here.
Demetri: You called me, remember.
Nhadra: That was a mistake, clearly. You being here now, you've set things in motion that will end very badly for you.
Mark: Can we just skip all over the other histrionic action movie cliches, because I'm way too jet lagged to deal with any of that right now.
Janis: Do you remember that whole "not giving up thing" we were talking about earlier?
Janis: If I were to start trying now, what exactly should I be doing?
Bryce: First of all, this is for a pre-natal vitamin...
Janis: That's all great. I need something a little more basic. I'm actually going to be doing this alone. And the whole penis thing is kind of a problem for me, 'cause I don't like them.
Bryce: You're gay.
Janis: I'm super gay.
Bryce: Super gay.
