    • Hardison: There's the full non-disclosure agreement that Kristin's required to sign in order to get her settlement. That's a hundred pages longer than the one you sign for the CIA. The winery's just trying to get her to shut up.
      Sophie: And how did you get your hands on a CIA contract?
      Hardison: You ask too many questions.

    • Madigan: We're going to increase the output of this winery by 1000%. And for the pleasure of being part of that, you get college credit. Welcome.
      Parker: What? Wait--is "college credit" code for "you're not going to pay me"?
      Madigan: Get to work.

    • Worker: Here's the computer you ordered, sir.

      Eliot: Yeah, I noticed that.

    • Parker: I like that camera. You could shove a cat in that camera.
