Addison: Have you been hiding?
Ben: Hiding? No, I was just in a different section of the apartment.
Addison: You mean the bathroom where you were hiding from the party you didn’t want to have?
Ben: I love parties. Having everyone in here, touching all our stuff. I would’ve proposed way sooner if I knew we got to do this.

Magic: Jenn, I just met a guy named Chris at the bar, says he’s your date. Why does he think I’m a video game designer?
Jenn: Would you prefer I told him you run a top-secret time travel project?

Addison: Thirty years ago, Quantum Leap was created by Dr. Sam Beckett. He would leap into people and then need to help them put right what once went wrong, and then the whole process would start all over again. Now, if we have any hope of getting you home, you have to do the same for this guy.
Ben: What the hell kind of time travel project is this? How does helping someone cause me to leap?
Addison: What do you know about Nick Rounder? It’s getting worse by the second out there.
Jenn: I saw. That is a terrifying amount of C4.
Ian: Is there an UN-terrifying amount?
One of my best friends has intentionally gotten himself stuck in quantum space-time and we can’t get him back. It’s like a bad mushroom trip that I just can’t sober up from. Not that… Not that I do mushrooms. I would never… as an employee of the United States military, I would never.Ian
Addison: Who are you right now?
Ben: What, I don’t normally punch out bad guys while wearing a tux?
Addison: No, normally you’re a punching out code in a t-shirt kind of guy.
Ben: That really hurt my hand.
