    • (Sam walks into the office and finds Deeks sitting at Dom's desk)
      Sam: The desk is taken, Deeks, you can't sit there.
      Hetty: Mr. Hanna, I asked Detective Deeks to sit there. I did it politely. Detective Deeks has been approved as our LAPD liaison; filling a chair that although taken has been vacant for some time.
      Callen: Welcome aboard, Deeks.
      Sam: So, you're sort of a temp.

    • Kensi: Time to do you liaison thing.
      Deeks: Yeah, about that liaison thing.
      Callen: (walks up to the car window) What's the wait…. Car's coming up.
      Kensi: He doesn't want to.
      Sam: Doesn't want to what?
      Kensi: Liaise.
      Sam: Is that even a word?
      Deeks: Yes, a liaison liaises.
      Callen: Well, maybe you could demonstrate.

    • Deeks: You know how it is with undercover cops; I've pissed off more than my fair share of shields.
      Sam: Then why did they choose you as our liaison?
      Deeks: Hetty's request.

    • (Hetty and Callen, in the clothes room)
      Callen: Deeks talked you into handing over a card with a fifty-thousand-dollar limit? Really?
      Hetty: (looking over shirts) Do you remember Rio? That Vicuna suit you wore? Cost ten grand.
      Callen: Cops hate Deeks.
      Hetty: In Miami, you nearly scuttled a Feretti yacht of an Omani Prince...ooh! (admires one of her choices)
      Callen: He's a lousy liaison, and yet...I get the sense he isn't temporary.
      Hetty: The repairs alone cost more than the limit on that credit card.
      Callen: Hetty, I'm not complaining that you gave him the money.
      Hetty: How could you, Mr. Callen? I gave you the card.
      Callen: (coming to realization) You don't want him as a liaison. You want him as an agent.
      Hetty: (smiling patiently) If they play Lady Gaga tonight, dance one for me, would you?

    • Callen: Hetty cut a side deal with you, didn't she? That's how you got the card.
      Deeks: Yeah.
      Callen: So, what's the limit, fifteen? (Deeks shrugs) Ten? (Deeks shrugs again) Come on, five? I'm supposed to look like I can spend fifty and you're on the hook after five?
      Deeks: (Protesting) She threatened me with a letter opener!
      Callen: I guess some people got to learn the hard way.
      Deeks: Why...What are you...
      Callen: (gestures to waitress) We'll take two more bottles.

    • (Callen returns the credit card to Hetty)
      Callen: I haven't seen the bill, but if it's over five grand, go easy on him.
      Hetty: Why? The cops hate Deeks. He's a lousy liaison.
      Callen: It's not what you wanted him for. You do your homework, don't you? On choosing agents. (Hetty stares at him) Deeks didn't end up in this building because we needed some LAPD liaison; you've been watching him for a while.
      Hetty: There is value in being patient.
      Callen: So, how long did you watch me before I joined NCIS? When did G. Callen become a blip on your radar? (Hetty stands up) Was it Kiev? Bogotá? Come on; don't tell me it was, uh, Jersey City.
      Hetty: Peking.
      Callen: You mean Beijing?
      Hetty: (Holds up canister) Tea, Mr. Callen.
      Callen: It was Jersey City, wasn't it?
