Artie: Oh, you know, they're... mostly, they're a pain in my ass.
Dickinson: So am I.
Myka: Artie, I need you to find my cell phone.
Artie: I'm not your personal cell phone locator, okay?

Dickinson: Flash Gordon?

Leena: How are you sleeping?
Artie: I'm not.
Leena: I could tell. Your aura looks like hell.

Artie: Hey! Please take this seriously. I had a run-in with a Mayan calendar a few years ago, and that question saved my life. And the two agents with me were not quite so lucky.

Artie: Well, um, this one and this one are dead. This one, a mental institution in Germany. And this last one disappeared. One day I'll find him.
Artie: Come on. Come on inside. I'll show you around.

Artie: I'll explain everything inside. Come on. I made cookies.
