Episode Summary

EDIT
I Am the Greatest
AIRED:
Theo reveals a big surprise to Michael; he was not the government's first experiment of his type. There was an army private before him who had the same kind of treatment years earlier. He escaped and vanished into thin air, never to be seen again. Now Theo thinks that he has finally reappeared, as Maceo T. Jones, unbeaten heavyweight boxing champion of the world. Michael's job is to get close enough to the champ to get a DNA sample from him. Once Theo has that in his possession he will be able to prove without a doubt that Maceo is, or isn't, who he thinks he is. Lisa starts her new job as a real estate agent and discovers that it is not going to be as easy as she first thought.moreless

    • QUOTES (13)

      • Dr. Theo: You like boxing, Mr. Wiseman?
        Michael: Watching or participating?

      • Michael: You're worried I'm going to leave you for him? I'll be honest, it crossed my mind when they brought the hush puppies.
        Dr. Theo: "Hush puppies?"
        Michael: Oh, come on, Doc. I only ate what I absolutely had to so as not to give myself away, and then, only to protect democracy and the American way of life.

      • Maceo: Stop kidding yourself. You got the same disease I got. You got a whole in your soul. You can't hide from that empitness, it weighs a ton. Come on; tell me, what's stopping you? You got somebody you're worried about on the outside, right? All my people are dead. But you really do have a wife, a daughter, someplace. Right?
        (Michael nods)
        Maceo: All right, no problem, we go get them, take them with us. You'll have your family, I'll have my memories, all of us will disappear for good.
        Michael: No, that won't happen. I'll never get within a mile of the house. They'll kill them before that happens.

      • Dr. Theo: You're supposed to be the greatest living fighting machine in the world. What happened?
        Michael: I'm thinking maybe the second greatest living fighting machine in the world sucker-punched me, Doc. I guess I'm not going to be doing any banana republic ads for a while.

      • Michael: I'm just a cog in the wheel. An ant in the colony. And if you tell me you need me to keep hanging out with this guy - sparring with him, training with him and, yes, even eating with him - well, a government experiment's got to do what a government experiment's got to do.

      • Michael: You worried I'm going to leave you for him? I'll be honest -- it crossed my mind when they brought the hush puppies.
        Dr. Theo: Hush puppies?
        Michael: Oh, come on, Doc. I only ate what I absolutely had to so as not to give myself away and, then, only to protect democracy and the American way of life.

      • Maceo: (To Michael) Didn't I see you in a Banana Republic ad?

      • Heather: So, how many houses did you sell today?
        Lisa: Oh, that would be... none.
        Heather: Whoops.
        Lisa: Oh, no, no. No. No. No, no, there's no "whoops" involved. There's no "whoops" here. I didn't sell any houses because I didn't get my business cards yet. I don't get my business cards until tomorrow. (Beat) And because nobody came in to see me. So, I didn't have to get in my car and show anybody a house. So that I could sell someone the house. There you have it, honey. It's all perfectly normal... perfectly natural... Just what you'd expect on your first day of when you are starting a new career. (Beat) Could you write me a note so that I don't have to go in tomorrow?

      • Lisa: I lost my husband last year in an accident.
        Janet: I'm sorry. I lost my husband to a female golf pro.

      • Dr. Theo: Before we even contemplate the next step in our plan Washington has to be certain that Maceo T. Jones and PFC Timothy Foster are, in fact, one and the same.
        Michael: And how do we do that? Pull his shorts down and check his underwear for a nametag?

      • Dr. Theo: I need DNA, Mr. Wiseman. Hair, blood, saliva… urine. That's where you come in.
        Michael: Tell me you don't have your heart set on the urine-sample thing.

      • Michael: You're really an evil man.
        Dr. Theo: You're making me blush.

      • Lisa: I'm going to give you my work number. Now don't lose it.
        Heather: Do you want me to pin it to my shirt? Mom, it's your first day at work -- not my first day at school.
