    • Dubenich: So, what have you been doing for three years? Playing Robin Hood? Know what I've been doing for three years. I've been preparing for this day.
      Nate: Well... you'll have to do better.
      Dubenich: Better than killing your father? Wow. Tough room.

    • Nate: Do you remember what I said to you? Next time we would meet, that I wouldn't be so nice?
      Dubenich: Yeah.
      Nate: Okay. Welcome to the next time.

    • Chaos: I want my usual fee plus expenses, and Parker dresses up as Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica.
      Hardison: Hey! It's not happening.
      Chaos: I'll accept Sophie as Counselor Troi. We'll negotiate on the flight.

    • Chaos: Wow, you are super old. Thank you for the history lesson. Maybe later, you can tell us about that one time you punched Hitler in the face. Parker, still yummy.
      Archie: I have two canes. One with a taser capable of delivering 10,000 volts. The other extends a 6-inch stiletto blade. (holds it to Chaos' neck)
      Chaos: Which one is this one?
      Archie: Oh, I don't seem to remember. I am super old.

    • Hardison: It's like hacking any other network. We just find the weak spot. Then we...

      Quinn: Can I hit him?
      Eliot: Which one?

    • Quinn: (to Chaos) How many fingers do you need to type? Round down.

    • Eliot: You know a lot of things, Nate. You don't know how this is going to change you.
      Nate: You handled it.
      Eliot: Well, you have no idea who I was before all this... started. That guy--kid--he had God in his heart, and he had a flag on his shoulder... clean hands. And I ain't seen him in the mirror in over ten years. And believe me... I get up every morning looking for him. So you can trust me when I tell you, you pull that trigger and two men die--the guy you killed... and the man you used to be.

    • Quinn: Hell, next time, give me the gun. I'm your huckleberry.
      Eliot: Here.
      Quinn: Little late now.
      Eliot: I love that movie.
      Quinn: Who the hell doesn't?

    • Maggie: If temptation counted as cheating, no marriage would make it past the first year.

    • Archie: No reason you should care, but I approve of your young man very much.
      Parker: I do care.
      Archie: How does that feel?
      Parker: Weird. But I think I'm getting used to it.

    • Hardison: I hate you with the white-hot heat of a thousand suns.
      Chaos: I dream you've died and I wake up laughing.
      Hardison: Sci-five?
      Chaos: No.
      Hardison: No.

    • Dubenich: You didn't kill the man responsible for your son's death.
      Nate: My son would be ashamed of me if I was a murderer.
      Dubenich: Yeah.
      Nate: My father, on the other hand--he'd buy me an ice cream.
