  • Trivia

    • GOOF: When Burke first meets Aimes and his bodyguard, the bodyguard has splash blisters on his left arm. But when the bodyguard draws his gun at Cruz and Caffrey in the museum, he has no blisters.

    • GOOF: Before Aimes and his party get bundled into the black SUVs, agents are seen unpacking gold artifacts from straw filled packing crates. The female agent at the back slightly juggles a large item and it bobbles about momentarily, just the way polystyrene (rather than gold) would.

  • Quotes

    • Burke: Let's grab his company's financial records from last year. They're on file.
      Caffrey: You want me to do it? (Burke nods) We have clerks for that.
      Burke: I got something better. I got you.

    • Cruz: The counterfeit stock certificates were your only conviction, but you're implicated in at least a dozen other confidence schemes, frauds, and forgeries.
      Caffrey: Is that why you asked to be reassigned to the White Collar Unit?
      Cruz: Yeah, you know, I wasn't going to pass up the chance to work with someone who I've admired since college.
      Caffrey: Hey, play your cards right, I'm sure we'll make a case or two.
      Cruz: Oh, honey, I was talking about Agent Burke. He caught you twice, right?

    • Elizabeth: Now, Neal... just because someone's accused of doing something, that doesn't mean that that person is guilty, right?
      Caffrey: Define 'guilty.'
      Burke: You really think he's the best person to ask?

    • Caffrey: Didn't you just join this unit?
      Cruz: Yeah, and I didn't even have to go to prison first.

    • (Mozzie and Caffrey talking on the phone)
      Mozzie: I found a bit of treasure too. On my way to show you.
      Caffrey: Hurry up.
      Mozzie: I walk in a delicate pace.

    • Burke: I thought you'd be taller.
      Mozzie: Me too.

    • Mozzie: It's about doing what we want to do. Who cares about nine-to-five's and 401-Ks. Playing by the rules only makes... borders. They just... take away everything that's good about living life.
      Caffrey: Mozz, Mozz, you lived in a storage unit.
      Mozzie: Yeah, but I lived there, man. I lived! As long as I don't have to live under anyone else's time or dime, I'm a free man. I can do whatever I want.

    • Caffrey: I need a car.
      Mozzie: I'll get my Slim Jim.
      Caffrey: No, can't steal it.
      Mozzie: Yeah, (does air quotes) 'we can't steal it.'
