[edit] Best Quotes

  • Skye: If I fought my way out of an underground Siberian prison, I'd kinda want to know what for.
  • Leo Fitz: What the hell? Who designed this? In the Hub of all places!
  • Leo Fitz: Jemma, stop, stop worrying about me, I can do this. Don't you do anything rash while I'm gone. Like jump out of an airplane.
  • Skye: If I'm right, give me a signal by... not saying anything.
  • Jemma Simmons: No! I can't be a part of your bad girl shenanigans. I like following the rules and doing what's expected of me. It makes me feel nice!
  • Grant Ward: Two million rubles. We've got to work on your negotiation skills.
    Leo Fitz: I thought they were like pesos.
  • Phil Coulson: Sorry, am I... disturbing you? (Melinda gives a long-suffering look and continues her Tai-Chi) You know, I like this plane, I like the way we do things here. Everyone's on the same page, no red tape. So far, it's working for us. (Melinda gives an "Excuse me?" stare) Most of us. And... maybe I'm getting soft, but I don't like keeping things from our team. If you knew... (Melinda glares) No, you're right. Level 8. But... (Melinda glares harder) I know... trust the system. May, thanks. (Melinda rolls her eyes as Phil walks off)
  • Jemma Simmons: You certainly have a gorgeous head, haven't you? (Skye mimes "WHAT?") I like men that are about my height but heavier than me.
  • Phil Coulson: Our team can go off book because there is a book. A Hub.
  • Leo Fitz: This is gonna take a while.
    Grant Ward: You have ten minutes.
    Leo Fitz: I thought you'd say five.
  • Phil Coulson: I know what the safety of a thousand men is worth. I know the importance of taking the Overkill device out of play. But I also know my men, and what they're worth. The decision to go in should have been theirs to make.
  • Skye: You're in? I thought we had to be level 8 to discuss this.
    Phil Coulson: We're not discussing anything.
