  • Quotes

    • Gillian: (About Dave) He doesn't want me to follow him.
      Cal: No. They're going to move him. Change his name.
      Gillian: (voice breaking) I liked the one he had.

    • Cal: You're one of the best liars that I've seen in a long time.
      Dave: Back at ya.
      Cal: So, you're not just in Gillian's life for a bit of the old, you know...
      Dave: Sex? (Cal nods) You can't say the other word, can you?
      Cal: (pauses) Love.

    • Emily: You know, you could have died yesterday.
      Cal: Possibly.
      Emily: So you admit you're an idiot.
      Cal: No, because... If I was an idiot, right, I would get into far more mundane trouble, or, you know, forgetting a lunch date with your daughter.
      Emily: It's a good thing you never do that.
      Cal: Absolutely, I've grown up.

    • Emily: I am 99.99% yours. You know, you might want to take this test again. There's still a 0.01% chance that people in the lab were lying.
      Cal: What, so I might get lucky, you mean?

    • Dave: You know what happens if I give them names? He kills them and their families. You don't trade their lives for the life of one man, not even if that man's you.
      Cal: Bloody hell! You really are Captain America, aren't you?

    • Ben: You know, I became an addict working undercover on the job.
      Michelle: This isn't about drugs.
      Ben: No. The point is, when you're real good at the job, you know, real start to disappear. Your values, your judgment, your character goes right out the window. And before you know it, you've lost everything. And everyone.

    • Cal: Where are you?
      Dave: I don't know where.
      Cal: No, I know you don't know where you are. But make somewhere up. Make-make up a place. Use your imagination. You know, look at me. (chuckles) I'm teaching a federal Agent how to lie.

    • Cal: You know, with some people, it's easier to tell when they stop lying than when they start. I think you're one of them.
      Russo: How can you tell when I stop lying?
      Cal: You shut your mouth.

    • Foster: Lightman's been keeping a file on Burns.
      Torres: (surprised) Why?
      Loker: 3 guesses. Foster, Foster and Foster.

    • Agent Williams: I'd have to get clearance.
      Cal: We scoff at words like that around here. Don't we, Ben?
      Ben: No, we laugh our asses off.

    • Cal: (about Dave) Is there a secret that you're keeping for him?
      Gillian: You just can't help yourself, can you?
      Cal: No, when it comes to you, I can't.

    • Gillian: So you're not here to pry, then?
      Cal: What, me, pry? On you, in here? Never.

    • Cal: A scientist's job is to verify, right?
      Emily: You never trust anyone, do you? You know, that's why you'll always be alone.
      (Cal looks outside, spots Gillian and stands up)
      Cal: I'm not alone.
