        Neal: -You're gonna have to drop her off.
        Diana: You're gonna have to seal the deal.
        Peter: No, no, no! No deal sealing.
        Diana: You don't want her dumping you and going after another victim.
        Neal: Diana's right. You need to impress her enough that she wants to take you home.
        Peter: Elizabeth got me into this.
        Neal: Yes, she did.

        Sara: One-on-one.
        Neal: What about lunches?
        Sara: Lunch is not romantic. Lunch is lunch.

      • Neal: Are you scared to tell Elizabeth? (about taking part in the bachelor auction)
        Peter: Terrified.

      • Peter: It's an application for the Manhattan Millionaire Society Bachelors Auction. If she's gonna be at this auction, then so are we. Club has three open slots for eligible men. That means I need three volunteers. Neal, raise your hand.

        Peter: Yes. (Neal raises his hand)

      • Peter: Here's another case we need to make disappear. (hands the file to Neal)

      • Neal: (spreads a deck of cards on the table, in front of Peter) Pick a card. Any card.
        Peter: What does this have to do with that property fraud scam?
        Neal: You'll have the whole thing cracked before I can say 'ta-da'. Pick a deed.
        Peter: (picks one card) Now what?
        Neal: Now I take these 51 deeds and figure out which one you took. It's not magic, it's math.
        Peter: We go through the title company's records, match them with the real things and figure out which one's missing.
        Neal: Ta-da.

      • (About Peter and Selena's "engagement")

      • Peter: Why do I feel I need a pike and sword?
        Neal: For those about to date, we salute you.

        Neal's answer is a modified variant of a well-known Latin phrase "Those who are about to die salute you," which was first quoted in De Vita Caesarim by a Roman historian named Suetonius.
