  • Quotes

    • Beale: I, uh, thought you were taking a few days off.
      Callen: I did.
      Beale: No, you didn't.
      Callen: Well, it felt like I did. Where is everybody?
      Beale: Uh, Sam is giving a deposition, Kensi is at a Women in Law Enforcement seminar, and Deeks and Rogers are at IHOP. According to Deeks, a waffle stack is cheaper than therapy.

    • Deeks: Had my, uh, breakfast with Rogers.
      Kensi: Oh, yeah. When did that become a thing?
      Deeks: It's not a thing. Just two men breaking up a waffle, like Lady and the Tramp.
      Kensi: With Rogers?
      Deeks: Yeah, he's like my Yoda.
      Kensi: I'm sure he would like you to refrain from calling him that.
      Deeks: Why? Yoda's cool.
      Kensi: Is he though?

    • Sam: I distinctly remember you agreeing to, uh, relax until next week.
      Callen: I am relaxed.
      Sam: You're very damaged.
      Nell: Oh. Hey, Callen. I, uh didn't expect to see you. I thought you were taking some time off?
      Sam: See? Even the kids are worried.
