Roxanne: (with a gun to Matt's head) You trained your team well. Let's see how they are at hostage negotiations!
Benny Ray: Busy bar.
Nick: I'd be drinking all the time, too, if I had to live in this freakin' country!
Trout: (referring to an operative he trained who is now a hostage) I have a great deal of admiration for Roxanne Mitchell. She's bright, talented, resourceful... but if you can't get her out alive, your orders are to terminate. Terminate, with extreme prejudice!
Debbie: (seeing Nick shaking his head over a letter) Bad news, Nick?
Nick: I can't believe it! Got another 'Dear John' letter.
Debbie: I'm sorry, I know how hard those can be. I remember one, it took me days to write. It is just so hard to find the words, you know, to break up with someone. Do you know what I mean?
Nick: Yeah. (reads his letter) 'Dear Nick... dear, dear Nick, I never want to see you again. Julie'
Debbie: That works!
Matt: I think someone's seen Evita a few too many times.

Nick: (mad that Deke got them a garbage truck as transportation) What, you're riding up front with the driver?!
