Alison: We keep coming back to each other.
Cole: I know.
Alison: Don't you think that means something?
Cole: I think that means we were unfinished.
Alison: And now...we are? You're scared. I think you're giving up because we've made a mess of everything, and it's too complicated. If you leave Luisa now, you can't play the good guy anymore. Then you're an asshole just like me. Yeah, but maybe you're a happy asshole instead of a miserable hero.

Eric: Guys, you're needed up in Ops, ASAP.
Deeks: That's it? No quips?
Sam: No soliliquies?
Deeks: No nerd trivia?
Sam: No show tunes?
Deeks: No flugelhorn?
Eric: Not today.

All this time hunting for the mole, and now it seems as if the mole is headed straight at us.

Hetty [to Kensi]

Callen: We're all being targeted by different agencies.
Kensi: Whoever is doing this has a lot of pull.
Callen: And a lot of connections.

Duggan: I regret that this is how it must come to an end.
Hetty: No one is sorrier than I, Undersecretary.

Nell: Does anyone else feel really off-balance here?
Kensi: I think that's the point.
Eric: It's like the worst round of Multiball ever.
Nell: My flippers are in overdrive.
Kensi: I'm sorry. What?
Eric: Pinball.
Kensi: People still play that?
Eric: Where have you been? In a coma? ... Too soon, Eric.

A friend and an early mentor always used to say, 'A woman is like a teabag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water.'


Duggan: Henrietta, why didn't you tell me about anything of this sooner?
Hetty: Because I didn't realize what you have to gain until now. I thought my career depended on finding the mole. Now I realize yours does.
Duggan: I don't follow.
Hetty: Taking me down would be big for your career, but not as big as finding the mole.

There by the big dipper. That's where God lives.


Lenny: I will never get over my aversion to tourists.
Gutierrez: Why is that Holy Father?
Lenny: Because they are just passing through.

It all comes back to this in the end. To the mother.


Friendly relationships are dangerous.
