Hetty: You owe me some paperwork.
Sam: Oh, I already dropped that report off.
Hetty: Mm-hmm. Everyone received a list of potential new recruits and everyone has returned his recommendation, except you.
Sam: We don't need a new recruit. Dom is missing, not dead.
Hetty: I'm not trying to replace Agent Vaile, I'm trying to give the team the support it needs until his return.
Sam: This isn't an office job, Hetty. We don't need a temp.
Hetty: I'm sorry I bothered you with this.
Sam: You're not bothering me.
Hetty: My mistake, my experience has been that your need to get in the last word is a sign of annoyance.
Hetty: Forgot diamonds, in this business, plausible deniability is a girl's best friend.
Hetty: Nevertheless, I want his input, if only to begin to move him forward. Maybe you could give him a little nudge.
Callen: Big guy does not like to be nudged. (She looks at him) I'll be gentle.
Kensi: (About him and Sam) You know each other pretty well, huh.
Callen: Oh, we should. We've been together longer than most married couples in this town.
(Sam stabs Callen with a pen needle)
Callen: You know I hate needles.
Sam: It's the antidote, G; I just saved your life.
Callen: I don't even get a warning.
Sam: Oh, now I got to warn you to save your life.
Callen: The FBI's doing a press conference announcing the arrest of Troyger and the others.
Kensi: And stealing our credit, that was all us, Sam and you and me.
Callen: I like my job, because I never have to do press conferences.
Hetty: The Koi fish in that fountain went belly up from the botulimin. Oh dear, when one so rarely uses that phrase literally. Anyway, the mall has billed us $72,000.
Kensi: For fish?
Kensi: (to Callen) Do you know what I could buy with that?
Callen: You know in nursing homes they only have tea in bags, so it just tastes like paper. When the time comes, I'll bring you the good stuff. Smuggle it in if I have to.
Hetty: Go in undercover? As an orderly?
Callen: Whatever you need.
Hetty: Mm-mmm. Oh, you know it's not loneliness I fear...
Callen: But you are scared of something.
Hetty: Yes, spilling everything I know, all my secrets being blathered out in a world that should never hear them. So, when the time comes, as you put it, there's something you can do. You can smother me with a pillow, make sure its synthetic, I'm allergic to feathers.
Eric: Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Dutchman. AKA Jacobus Troyger, AKA Sebastian Boon, AKA Jurgen Vanderveer, AKA yada yada yada. The guy's got more aliases than Callen.
Sam: Somehow I doubt that.
Callen: Hetty, honestly, I'm fine.
Hetty: Asset protection is part of my responsibility and you are an asset. When you're not being a pain in the asset. Now, open wide.
(She sticks a tongue depressor in his mouth)
Callen: Ah... (gags) What was that for?
Hetty: It's a healthy gag reflex. It's the first thing to go in botulism poisoning (Sam's laughing) Stop laughing, you're next.
Callen: Sam sees the glass as half full, I see it as half empty; that's why we make a good team. Kensi, on the other hand, just drinks right out of the bottle. Nate wonders why it has to be glass and Eric usually breaks the glass by putting his feet up on the table.
Hetty: Sam's been reluctant to weigh in on the selection for a temporary agent.
Callen: Sam doesn't play well with others and he doesn't like to share his toys.
