    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • DRAUPNIR , the password for the website Neal and Mozzie use to keep watch on the treasure, refers to a gold ring possesed by god Odin, which had the ability to multiply itself: Every ninth night it would produce eight rings, all identical to the original.

      • Mozzie's suggestion that "Sally" be short for "Salieri" is a reference to the fact that his own name is short for "Mozart." Antonio Salieri and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart were 18th-century composers, colleagues, and occasionally rivals. Their feud was most famously fictionalized in the 1979 play and 1984 film Amadeus.

    • QUOTES (16)

      • Neal: Do you remember when I was staying at Palazzo Sasso, in Ravello, and you had Europol closing in?
        Peter: No. You were in Ravello?
        Neal: Right after the Corsica heist.
        Peter: Oh... I had no idea you were there. I had Europol leak that we were getting close so you'd keep moving.
        Neal: You were bluffing.
        Peter: Yeah.
        Neal: So I could have stayed there.
        Peter: Yeah, I guess you could have.

      • Neal: These past few days... They remind me of Palazzo Sasso, they've been perfect.
        Sara: You're really hung up on that hotel.
        Neal: It wasn't just a hotel. It was a time of my life when I had everything I was looking for. Freedom, excitement, comfort, and the right people to share it with.

      • Peter: (reading from the report) Two dozen Fioravanti suits and twice that in Valentino dresses... matching red and black Rolls Royce convertibles. This sounds like the world's most expensive date.
        Diana: You think Dupont has a partner with expensive tastes?
        Peter: I think I have a partner with expensive tastes.

      • Sarah: You and Mozzie certainly don't care very much for authority.
        June: Let's just say it's an acquired distaste.

      • Neal: Peter, there is an explanation for all of this.
        Peter: You thought you'd spend the money to lure Dupont out of hiding?
        Neal: I love how we're always on the same page.
        Peter: We're not on the same page. We're not in the same book. We're not even in the same library!

      • Peter: I remember when Elizabeth moved in.
        Neal: No, no. This is temporary.
        Peter: Yep. So was El.

      • Mozzie: Oh, Sara. Hello. Welcome.
        Sara: I hope we didn't interrupt you.
        Mozzie: I was, um... looking at porn.
        Sara: At the dining room table of someone else's home?

      • Sara: Did you miss me?
        Mozzie: Uh, Sara, Neal and I were discussing your predicament. And I would like to offer my assistance.
        Sara: So you want to get rid of me.
        Mozzie: "Po-tay-to," "po-tah-to."

      • Sara: We are talking about international bank fraud, federal grand larceny, synthetic identity theft --
        Mozzie: Don't forget conspiracy.
        Sara: Okay. All in hopes of convincing some psycho to come after us?
        Mozzie: Concisely stated.

      • Peter: You're late. Why?
        Neal: I'm at the bank, helping Sara out.
        Peter: Ah, domestic partnership. Hey, does she make you iron your shirts in the morning?
        Teller: Mother's maiden name?
        Neal: Uh, Mitchell. (to Peter) Elizabeth has to make you iron your shirts?
        Peter: If I'm wearing a jacket, you can only see the middle.
        Teller: Street you grew up on?
        Neal: Uh, Portage Avenue.
        Peter: Who are you talking to?
        Neal: I am with the bank teller. Did you call to find out if my shirt has wrinkles?

      • Sara: What were you reading back there?
        Mozzie: Oh, the court issuance from Watergate, with the word "president" excised. I just grabbed the first thing lying around.

      • Sara: Mozzie didn't seem too pleased we were pulling a con on Vulture.
        Neal: He has a weakness for notorious scofflaws.

      • Sara: What do we do if the Vulture does come after us?
        Neal: Hackers aren't known for their physical prowess.
        Sara: Neal, that's not a strategy.
        Neal: Look, if the Vulture shows up, we call Peter and the FBI arrests him.
        Peter: Oh, so you were gonna call me eventually?

      • Elizabeth: Well, in the past, thge Bureau's okayed extravagant stings, right?
        Peter: That's right, honey. The Bureau okays them. There are checks and balances -- a notion that goes beyond Neal's comprehension.
        Neal: No, I understand checks. It's just the balance that I struggle with.

      • Neal: Sara did complain about my anklet.
        Peter: Ooh.
        Neal: I toss in my sleep and she bruises easily.
        Peter: How about if I take off your anklet?
        Neal: That'd be great.
        Peter: Then we'll see if Sara prefers conjugal visits. 'Cause you'd be in prison.
        Neal: As a rule of thumb, you shouldn't have to explain your jokes.

      • Neal: You got yourself a girlfriend.
        Mozzie: Neither I nor she would ever thrust such a crude epithet upon ourselves.
