  • Trivia

    • Here we learn that Neal created the alias Nicholas Halden to run a long con on Vincent Adler, but in the episode "All in" Peter says that Neal created that alias to launder cash through a Canary island scam in 2004.

    • The password for Adler's account in the Caymans is ANCIENTLYRE which is an anagram of "nice try Neal."

  • Quotes

    • Neal: Why are you filling that bottle with bargain red?
      Mozzie: Have you studied Adler's wine list?
      Neal: Is that the '91 Bordeaux?
      Mozzie: The one year it was corked to the wrong bottle. Eight hundred dollars a pop. I, of course got this bottle empty (smells the wine, makes a face) Best served when the guests are drunk.

    • Neal: (noticing Peter brought a six-pack of beer): Yeah, I'm not much of a beer drinker, so-
      Peter: I know. That's why I brought you this. (hands Neal a bottle of wine)
      Neal: Oh. I don't recognize the bottle.
      Peter: That's because it costs as much as a beer.
      Neal: Wow. I don't even need a corkscrew.

    • Peter: I'll make you a deal. Full immunity for anything you say from this moment until the sun rises over that balcony.
      Neal: Full immunity?
      Peter: Did you kill anybody?
      Neal: No.
      Peter: Then full immunity.

    • Neal: If you want to know about Adler, we got to start with Mozzie.
      Peter: Why am I not surprised?

    • Peter: Mozzie had a goatee?
      Neal: Well, only to distract from his toupee.

    • Neal: What was my nickname?
      Peter: What?
      Neal: Come on. Every case gets a nickname. Hagen was the Dutchman before you ID'd him. What was my nickname?
      Peter: Oh, don't recall.
      Neal: That's too bad. Well, the sooner you remember, the sooner we can move on.
      Peter: James Bonds.
      Neal: Bonds.
      Both: James Bonds.
      Peter: Yes, yes.
      Neal: Would you like another beer?
      Peter: Yeah.
      Neal: Shaken, not stirred?

    • Neal: The teller was a real sweetheart.
      Mozzie: Oh, she gave you a sucker. You know, the irony of that would not be lost on Alanis Morissette.

    • Mozzie: Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides.
      Neal: St. Augustine.
      Mozzie: Good. You've been reading.
      Neal: Smart guy told me to.
