Edison

[to Olivia] Invite me in. It's time. Because I am a man and I don't play games. And you and I are very good together. So let me in or I walk away.

Edison

[to Huck] You're important to me.

Olivia

[to Olivia] Don't insult me by calling me your job. Because I'm not your job. I am your family. I am your gladiator. And that is not a job to me. That's who I am. And right now you need me, so no questions asked, no matter what, whatever you need. Give me some marching orders, Liv.

Harrison

Harrison: What do you need? Whatever it is that's going on, whatever it is that you're thinking about when you're sitting in here all by yourself, tell me what you need and I will do it, no matter what.
Olivia: You don't want to get involved.

Abby: Spies listen to the radio?
Huck: Anything high-tech you can break into. With a radio, you can't trace where it comes from, you can't trace who's listening. The radio is how we talk to each other, how all spies talk to each other. All around the world. You listen every day and every day there's no message. Years go by and decades and there's no message and then one day you listen and the code word comes.
Abby: And then what happens?
Huck: It's time to come home.
