  • Trivia

    • Trivia: As Ingram and Finch clash about the morality of the "irrelevant" categorization, you can see the machine has brought up Reese's (ex)girlfriend Jessica as a "person of interest."

  • Quotes

    • Reese: Took the liberty of booking the whole floor. Your card.
      Finch: Guess I can use the miles.

    • Finch: Theresa's body was never recovered.
      Reese: Uh, "presumed dead'? That's a reasonable assumption.
      Finch: The police only see what they choose to look for. The Machine sees almost everything.

    • Reese: This was a professional hit. Muzzle impressions were made after the fact, made it look point blank, like the father did it. Cops missed it.
      Finch: And you know that how?
      Reese: That's how I would have done it.

    • Ingram: How are we supposed to live with this, knowing that someone out there needs help?
      Finch: Well, we don't have to. I've coded the Machine. Every night at midnight, it deletes the irrelevant list. We didn't build this to save somebody. we built it to save everybody.
