    The set up for the whole gift to the boss seemed like a practical joke, where if he actually did get his boss a present he'd look like an idiot, and all his co-workers would just laugh at him. Instead, they were telling the truth, and it seemed to go into the realm of the predictable and obvious, with the Agent investigating Sam and then the Falcon blowing up, etc. (Dear Writers:funnier on paper than on screen) At the end it seemed like there should have been a little more to sum it up. That said, Sully was hilarious not only for his few lines, but because he was George Mason's son on 24 season 2, and they did a scene pretending to have Russ on the set of 24, which is the type of humor I always find hilarious. Since it's a comedy it would be great if they subtly mentioned the actors other work or trivia on the show, as it always adds to the hilarity, even if in passing or in the background. Example, Mimi Rogers marriage to Tom Cruise....they add something about that....laugh accomplished!moreless

    • Sam: Ok, I imported some illegal cargo...

      Derek: What, bricks of H, Thai hookers, under-aged duckie-suckie, what?

      Sam: A Zimbabwean Falcon.

      Derek: Whoa! Henta-Virus much?!

    • Russ: Yeah, I called him after an old buddy of mine Carl Brookline Downey. We did basic together and then some. We were friends with benefits. Well, I mean the army had a big benefits package then. Brookline's package was even bigger. Well, I mean he was privately insured.

    • Darcy: A federal agent is waiting in your office.
      Sam: What? You let him in my office?
      Darcy: Yes, I did. There are un-result criminal issues in my past and I don't need trouble. Not now. The next time feds take me it will in a bag and I'm not going to be the only one in it.

    • Russ: Take the bird back.
      Sam: But you just let it go.
      (Russ whistles and the falcon comes back)
      Russ: It's a falcon, boy. They're bred to return. Like a fat girl to a bowl of pudding.

    • Sam: I'm not gonna find a rare falcon in Chinatown.
      Sully: Alright, listen, no one's gonna know the difference, alright? You send back wings and a beak, you're golden. It's the government, alright. People don't work there because they're geniuses. (fake coughs) Condoleezza Rice!

    • (Sam is in the elevator and sees Derek enter)
      Sam: Oh, God!
      Derek: Yeah, but you can call me Derek. Or Yahweh if that's the way you rugelach.
