    • Judge: You caught him?
      Peter: Twice. And you should know, the last time I caught him, he was sitting alone in an empty apartment, he had nothing. No one.
      Judge: And now?
      Peter: He has a life. A real life, here. One that keeps him grounded, and decent. As you heard, there are many people who care about Neal, people who see him as more than just a criminal. He's frustrating, I'll admit, he drives me crazy on his best days. I don't always have to know where Neal is or what he's up to, but I do know that he has a good heart and a set of principles that weren't there six years ago when he was just another case file that got dropped on my desk.
      Judge: Do you think that Mr. Caffrey is reformed?
      Peter: As long as he's on that anklet, we'll never know. We can sit here and debate until kingdom come over who's Neal Caffrey. But as long as we keep him tethered, as long as we treat him as a criminal, he'll always think that he is one. Whether Neal is a citizen, a CI or a thief, is a decision that needs to be put in his hands
      Judge: Agent Burke, should Neal Caffrey's sentence be commuted?
      Peter: Yes. I'm saying that Neal should be free.
