      Sophie: Very, very wet. We're gonna have to have a serious talk about moving to somewhere with less rain.
      Hardison: London has rain.

      Sophie: Oh. That's sweet.
      Parker: Yeah, me and my money. Hardison and Eliot, Nate and you.
      Sophie: Yeah? Parker, why does the money always come before the people?

    • Eliot: (about Nate) To be honest, when you're not on the receiving end of it, watching him mess with somebody's head is pretty impressive.

    • Eliot: I'm only going to say this once, boys. Give me the... teddy bear.
