  • The Lonely Hearts Job

    Well, this was an odd episode of Leverage, confusing as to who they were conning so late in the game, but it was clever and it gave those fans who are hoping for Nate and Sophie and Parker and Hardison pairings some scenes they might enjoy. It was fast-moving and enjoyable and while it was not my favorite con, the majority of the writing was strong tonight.

    Solid, better than most this season.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Sophie: You don't have a romantic bone in your body. You don't even bother to learn their names. They're just waitress, nurse, stewardess.
      Eliot: First of all, it's "flight attendant," all right? They don't like being called stewardess. And second, I know their names.

    • Parker: You guys having a three-way?
      Nate/Sophie/Eliot: What?!?
      Parker: Three-way fight?

    • Parker: Let's go steal a sweetheart. (Eliot frowns) Widow?
      Eliot: Unh-unh.
      Parker: No, spider? Spider.

    • Parker: (seeing an expensive necklace) Ooh. Sparkly.
      Nate: Parker, no burgling.
      Parker: But these jewels... they're just asking to be taken.
