  • Trivia

    • The featured Lenox Lounge does actually exist. It is a historic jazz club located in Harlem, New York City.

    • When Neal opens the coffee table and looks at the printing plate, the image is not a mirror image, but the image of a normal $100 bill.

  • Quotes

    • Neal: From one professional to another, how come you don't have any prints? (demonstrating the coin as he fiddles with it)
      Ford: Pumice stone. I rub my fingers with it every morning.
      Peter: Wake up, brush your teeth, scrape incriminating evidence off your fingertips.
      Ford: (leans forward)Old habits ...
      Peter: (says almost to himself)Yeah.

    • Peter: Can you forge these?
      Neal: The US bills are tricky. The ink, maybe. But the paper, and the feel of that linen cut and blend is tough to duplicate. (remembers the presence of the treasury agents) So I've been told.

    • Peter: Okay, since we can't find Ford, let's figure out what else he needs to make these bills.
      Neal: I'll need to borrow some reading materials.
      Peter: Fine. From where?
      Neal: The US Treasury. (Peter sighs)

    • Neal: It's perfect. He won't suspect you're a fed.
      Peter: Then who am I?
      Neal: A coworker.
      Peter: And what kind of co-work would that be?
      Neal: I may have implied that you're not exactly a noble citizen.
      Peter: No.
      Neal: Peter-
      Peter: I said no. Find another way.

    • Neal: Good work, Moz.
      Mozzie: I don't like that expression.
      Neal: "Good work"?
      Mozzie: Well, "work" implies I have a job.

    • Neal: I need a favor.
      Diana: Neal, what did I say last time you asked me for a favor?
      Neal: I should think long and hard before trying to pull anything over on you.
      Diana: And?
      Neal: And that if I ever did try, you'd break one or both of my arms.

    • Neal: You find anything on the receipt I gave you?
      Mozzie: I have, with the use of a hair dryer and photoshop contrast.
      Neal: Why do you have a hair dryer?

    • Peter: I'm not comfortable with this.
      Neal: Really? You're not comfortable? I've got the Men in Black bobsled team breathing down my neck.
      Peter: These treasury agents are a little skeptical. You look like a 12-year-old who just found the lingerie section of the Sears catalog.

    • Neal: Simple word association. "Dowd," crowd." Joseph Dowd runs with a bad crowd. Kenny Estrada... He won't say nada.
      Peter: Are you serious?
      Neal: Yeah, I got one for every cop and crook I ever met.
      Peter: What was mine? Burk the jerk? (Laughs) Oh, come on.
      Neal: You tell me what else rhymes with "Burke."

    • Peter: (about Ford) You want to be like him when you grow up?
      Neal: More fun than sitting in a cubicle.
      Peter: Neal, if ever you do decide to grow up, you should realize this one thing. You can either be a con or a man. You can't be both.

    • Neal: Hey. How was the book club?
      Mozzie: Well, there's only so much to discuss when it comes to Kitty Kelley.

    • Peter: (comparing Mozzie to Ford) You're like him.
      Mozzie: I accept your accusation.

    • Neal: (about Ford) Tried to help him.
      Peter: You know... there's one thing Byron figured out that Ford never did. There's no such thing as a final score... only the next one. Unless you figure that out, you're gonna lose in the end.

    • Mozzie: You know what they say. Old con men never die.
      Neal: Our smiles just fade away.
