Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Agents McSweeten and Taggert talk about what they had been doing in the past year to Parker and Hardison, the two FBI agents say that they "put away Masconi" and "stopped a meth ring during a bank robbery." These events were shown during "The Wedding Job" and "The Bank Shot Job." The Leverage team provided assistance for the FBI agents to close both cases.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Nate: Can I get this straight? Okay, you two couldn't rig a gym class and a spelling bee, and you two run into the only FBI agents on the planet that recognize you?
      Eliot: I gotta be honest with you, I think we broke the kid even more.
      Sophie: We are the worst fairy godparents in the world.

    • Nate: Listen, we've still got to get Fowler out of the apartment so we can get in.
      Parker: Yeah, except now when he leaves there'll be somebody waiting to kill him.
      Hardison: Man, one of his victims wants payback more than he wants to be paid…back.
      Eliot: But one of you two can identify the gunman, right?
      Hardison: Oh yeah, sure, he stopped and let me take a picture of him as I was chasing him.
      Eliot: Hey, you know what? I've been around little kids all day, I don't need to come home and do all this crap.
      Hardison: Man, I've been in this pink shirt, tight plaid pants, these old Webster loafers, this girl walking all over my back, I don't need this man.

    • Nate: Who's that?
      Hardison: Oh, the kid. Kid's from her first marriage, Widmark.
      Eliot: I'm sorry what? Widmark?
      Hardison: Rich people, man.

    • Kay Maher: He's allergic to strawberries.
      Parker: That's ironic.
      Nate: Why?
      Parker: Because he's sweet.

    • Kay Maher: Sorry. It's just really hard to trust people right now. You know?
      Parker: That's okay. We don't trust you either.
      Nate: No, she didn't...
      Kay Maher: Thank you for your time. (walks away)
      Parker: That went super.
      Nate: God... where is Sophie?

    • Alec: Hey. This look like an ordinary cell phone, right? It's not, man. It's a metal detector. See, it uses, pulse-induction technology that sends out a current that generates a magnetic field, and then… are you even listening?
      Eliot: Yeah.
      Alec: Well, what did I say?
      Eliot: You were explaining how you're still a virgin.

    • Nate: Now, there are three general exceptions for house arrest. There's personal safety, death of a relative, and family events.
      Eliot: Personal safety. We could burn the apartment down.
      Parker: Ooh! Ooh!

    • Widmark: I want someone to like me. Does that get easier when you're a grown-up?
      Sophie: Um, no, I don't think it does.
      Widmark: You're nice. But weird.

    • McSweeten: Can you imagine having her for a partner? What?
      Taggert: You want to see other partners.
      McSweeten: I didn't say that.
      Taggert: Yeah, fine, whatever.

    • Nate: Could you just please try to maybe not make this so difficult?
      Sophie: I can't take you seriously with that dead cat on your head.

    • Parker: Door alarm's got a Takashita 500 with redundant infrared. Window's easier.
      Alec: The window? The window that's 20 stories up?
      Parker: Like I said--easier.

    • Nate: Well, you know, this is interesting. This must be a-a first. I mean, it's the only time I can remember that the con depended solely on you telling the truth. How'd it feel?
      Sophie: Eh, good. Don't get used to it.
      Nate: Oh, no. No.
      Sophie: I start telling the truth all day... I stop being Sophie Devereaux.
      Nate: Maybe that's, uh... a good thing.
      Sophie: Uh-nuh.

    • Sophie: The play's the thing, wherein I'll capture the conscience of a king.

      The title of this episode comes from Shakespeare's Hamlet, Act 2, scene 2, lines 603-605. Hamlet stages a play reenacting the scene where his father is killed, thus tricking the king into revealing his guilty conscience.
