  • Quotes

    • Samantha Spade: I hope you're happy. I hope you have people who love you and take care of you. It can't be me. Do you understand that? It can't be me.
      Emily Reynolds: Sam ...
      Samantha Spade (cutting her off): No!
      Emily Reynolds: Please! (Sam leaves)

    • George Howard: I don't understand. Now you think she's looking for Darren?
      Samantha Spade: Yeah. Who you told us was dead.
      George Howard: That's what I always told Becca.
      Samantha Spade: Well, I'm not your granddaughter, Mr Howard. I'm an FBI agent and you're hindering my investigation!

    • Emily Reynolds (after discovering from Jack that Sam can't meet her from lunch): We don't, umm, we don't see each other very much.
      Jack Malone: Yeah, I have a brother like that.

    • Jack Malone (upon seeing Dalton handcuffed to the headboard): Shoulda chewed your arm off.

    • Martin Fitzgerald: Do you think if I walked in here naked, anyone would notice me?
      Elena Delgado (laughing): No, but thank you for the visual.
      Martin Fitzgerald (sheepishly): Oh, trust me. It's nothing to write home about.

    • Jack Malone: Clean up this douchebag and bring him downtown.
