    Nate's speech at the end, delving into the history of the trumpet was well-done and on occasion Timothy Hutton does prove to be a good actor. It's just not the norm like it is with the truly great thespians.



    The case they took on was a little interesting, albeit a bit generic. Trent was as generic a bad guy as they come, but he still did make me laugh with some of his lines.moreless

    When I watch episode's of Leverage it's really a treat.

    It's been a long time since I've seen a show at the end of which,

    I found myself truly satisfied.. From The Edge of My Seat to standing up .

    This Show is Top Notch as far as I'm concerned. "Nate" Sophie, Eliot ,Parker, and Of Course Alec,

    The Show Must go On I'm Hooked On this feeling , I can't help Believing That I'm In Love with it . :)

      Hardison: No. And that's two guesses, stop playing.

    • Eliot: You spent $100,000 on a motorcycle.
      Hardison: Don't hate the gift. Hate the elf.
      Eliot: I do hate the elf.

    • Eliot: You realize without that safety study, we've got nothing.
      Nate: Yeah.
      Eliot: So why'd you promise him that?
      Nate: Because we are not gonna let that toy get released. We're gonna steal Christmas.

    • Zachary: God. You get me. When I win my first Oscar, I'm gonna name it after you, Miss Devereaux. I'm going to thank everybody and then I'm going to say, "This is not an Oscar, it's a Devereaux."
      Sophie: Okay, Zachary.
      Zachary: Right.

    • Nate: Okay, Hardison, so you get on that lecture thing. Eliot, you get on the mommies.
      Hardison: And he doesn't mean that literally.
      Eliot: That joke is never funny.
      Hardison: It's always funny.
      Eliot: It's not, Hardison. Comedy is about timing and you don't have it.

      Parker: Clowns?

      Parker: Evil clowns?

      Nate: No.

    • Hardison: Is he serious? I mean, dang, I feel like I just got sucker-punched by an elf-hating, Scrooge-loving, no-gift-giving anti-Claus. I mean, am I bleeding?
      Sophie: Little bit.

    • Hazlit: This is about Trent Hazlit.
      Pantani: Oh, right, right. So, go out there and give them a big old bag of Trent.
      Hazlit: Shut up.

    • Eliot: Promise me those things will never hit store shelves.
      Parker: Nah, I'm keeping them all to myself. I've got them lined up in my warehouse like an army of joy and rage.
      Hardison: You don't ever want to be in that warehouse alone.

    • Sophie: I think we should give each other some trust for Christmas.
      Parker: What, like that willow exercise and you fall back and someone catches you?
      Sophie: No, not like that.
      Parker: Good. Because I did that once, and I dropped the person. And they had to get stitches.
      Hardison: Still hurts.
      Parker: I know.

    • Nate: When I was a kid, I wanted a trumpet one Christmas. My--my father played Sinatra all the time, and Sinatra had this trumpet played named Sweets Edison--Harry Sweets Edison. Great sound, amazing. I wanted to sound just like him, you know? Christmas rolled around, and, um, there was no trumpet, just a pack of baseball cards. My father said that Santa must've had a rough year at the tracks. Anyway, a couple of days later, I wake up in my bed and at the foot of my bed is... is a trumpet. It's all tarnished and dinged up, my dad probably rolled somebody for it, but... but there it is. I played that trumpet every day for ten years. I never--I never ended up sounding like Sweets Edison, but... So I gave it to--I gave it to Sam on his eighth birthday. And that was--his, um, first trumpet lesson was scheduled for the day, as it turns out, that he went into the hospital. And I, so he... I don't have anything left from my childhood, but I did keep the trumpet. I keep it on the boat.
