  • Quotes

    • Kara: Welcome back, John.
      Reese: Kara. I thought you were...
      Kara: Dead? I wasn't very good at it. Of course, neither were you.

    • Reese: So what's this really about?
      Kara: This is about three dead little spies in a brave new world. It's about the afterlife, John, and us negotiating our places in it.

    • Kara: Don't your bosses at the Ministry of Security have anything better for you to do?
      Greer: My dear, if you think I work for the government, I really must fire my tailor.

    • Reese: Have you ever defused a bomb vest before?
      Finch: Can't say I have. But I believe I grasp the basic principles.
      Reese: Well, that's encouraging.

    • Finch: (defusing a bomb) For this phone, it's one of five combinations.
      Reese: That's good.
      Finch: The problem is we only get three attempts before the phone permanently locks us out.
      Reese: That's not.

    • Finch: What?
      Reese: Something you said once. About how sooner or later we'd both probably wind up dead.
      Finch: I prefer later. After all, I'm the one who got you into this in the first place.
      Reese: I'm pretty sure I'd be dead already if you hadn't found me.
      Finch: It's hard to say.
      Reese: Not really. Pick a winner, Harold.

    • Snow: You were right, Kara. About me being dead. I'm gonna be great at it.
