  • Quotes

    • Don: Any idea how these guys are connected?
      David: Well they're not, Don. I mean their arrest records read like a travel log all over the country. Haven't been able to find a common denominator.
      Colby: And a crew like this, these guys they don't hook up over MySpace.

    • Charlie: Nothing's unhackable.

    • Alan: Well, here's a toast. To rabbit season.
      Larry: To duck season.
      Alan: I like rabbit season.
      Larry: Duck season.
      Charlie: (to Amita) You want a recount?
      Amita: Thinking about it.

    • Larry: Eppes-Fleinhardt Paradox...
      Alan: Fleinhardt-Eppes! (grins) Wait a minute. Did you just trick me into taking second position?
      Amita: It's like the time that Bugs Bunny tricks Daffy Duck into declaring duck season by declaring rabbit season. And then Elmar Fudd shoots Daffy Duck and his beak spins around, and... (giggles) It's really very funny, hehe... Am I alone here?

    • Colby: Don, you made the right call. I mean, you could have never known.
      Don: If I hadn't have called for the shot, he wouldn't have pulled the trigger.
      Colby: You can't be inside the guy's head.
      Don: That's my job.

    • Alan: I stopped by Vilosky's engineering class for a chat, and uh, he's on board for the cow manure fuel cell idea.
      Larry: Ooook, well, I had a similarly spirited discussion with Breicher in astrophysics. He suggested we better model our efforts after Paul Davy's cosmic thing at Arizona state.
      Alan: Well that's a bit head in the clouds, don't you think?
      Larry: Well, as opposed to poo on the table...
      Charlie: Guys, this isn't the time!

    • Charlie: Who voted me team leader?
      Anita: (referring to Alan and Larry) They did. Don't look at me, I voted for myself.

    • Len Walsh: And what if this turns into Waco?
