"Leverage: The Snow Job (#1.9)" (2009)
Sophie Devereaux: Are you drunk?
Nathan Ford: Technically, no. I was drunk a couple of hours ago. Now, I'm just hung over.

Parker: A man with one watch knows the time. A man with two is never sure.
Sophie Devereaux: Wha?
Parker: I had fortune cookies for breakfast.

Sophie Devereaux: So, uh, you can, uh, write that little check now, hey?
Alec Hardison: [listening over coms] Hey, why can't they all be this easy?
Randy Retzing: Of course not. We have to go to Miami. My dad's the one who has to write the check.
Alec Hardison: Ah, hell, why they all gotta be this hard?

Nathan Ford: We're going with a much bigger scam. One of the classics...
Parker: The "London Spank"?
Alec Hardison: The "Geneva Pasa-Doble"...
Eliot Spencer: The "Apple Pie".
[stares from the group]
Eliot Spencer: It's like the "Cherry Pie", but with lifeguards.
Sophie Devereaux: [savoring the thought] Whew...
Nathan Ford: [announcing the official answer] "Glengarry Glen Death". It's like a mutual fund, but instead of stocks you invest in, in death.

Sophie Devereaux: Death scenes can be demanding. I remember this time I was playing Camille in Summerstock, and whew, I was drained after every performance.
Parker: Don't I just make believe I'm dying?
Sophie Devereaux: Okay, you need to own the space... and um, and access your sense memory. Here try this, can you think of a really sad thing that's happened in your life like, I don't know, like when your father died?
Parker: [cracks-up]
Sophie Devereaux: Yeah. This isn't going to be easy...

Alec Hardison: Um, no, no. You're supposed to say, "Wow. That's just crazy enough to work."
Sophie Devereaux: Incredibly, chance does seem to bend itself to his bizarre machinations.
Parker: That's his superpower.

Maggie Collins: So nobody else finds it annoying when you nag them in the middle of these things?
Sophie Devereaux: Why don't I run this one, Nate?
Nathan Ford: Yeah, I don't nag. You know, I just have a, you know, clear big-picture view point. And...
Alec Hardison: Actually, you know what, we kinda like the way Sophie ran the last one.
Eliot Spencer: Yeah, yeah. Right up to the point where she got us caught. But other than that, it was great.

Eliot Spencer: I was just getting used to it.
Sophie Devereaux: What? Having an office?
Eliot Spencer: Being part of a team.

Parker: What's going on?
Eliot Spencer: Sophie here was just trying to apologize.
Sophie Devereaux: No I wasn't!
Parker: Oh, she tried that with me earlier. She kinda sucks at it.
Eliot Spencer: Yeah, little bit.
Alec Hardison: Oh, did she give you the speech about how we're thieves, and about how this is what thieves do, and if we were in her shoes we'd have done the same thing?
Eliot Spencer: No, I think she was just getting to that part.

Sophie Devereaux: Wow!
Alec Hardison: Hey, don't break nothing.
Eliot Spencer: There's nothing to break.
Parker: Who ripped out the toilets?
Alec Hardison: This was an IRS foreclosure.

[Eliot looking uncomfortable and Nathan shrug defensively in the van]
Maggie Collins: Listen, I want to thank you.
[Maggie puts her hand on top of Eliot's hand]
Maggie Collins: I haven't dated a lot since my marriage broke up.
Eliot Spencer: [Eliot answers uncomfortably] Sorry to hear that.
Maggie Collins: No Don't be. He was obsessive, perfectionist, controlling...
Nathan Ford: [Back in the van, Nathan became defensive] Organized, she used to say that I was organized. Punctual!
Alec Hardison: [Parker, Sophie, and Alec nod sarcastically] uh huh.
Eliot Spencer: Must have some good qualities.
Maggie Collins: No, not even in bed
Parker: [Alec's eyes light up] oooooo!
[Parker, Sophie and Alec all turn towards Nathan]
Maggie Collins: Every night was prom night. You know what I mean.
[pausing with a smile]
Maggie Collins: The worst of all,
[Eliot appears extremely uncomfortable]
Maggie Collins: He completely forgot that I gave him that button cam for Christmas three years ago.

Alec Hardison: eah, I analyze it, I monitor comms, I scan for all police frequencies, I... you had no idea I do all this, did you? Does nobody respect the van? The van is important! What... what is that?
Sophie Devereaux: It's lemon-zest tea. I gotta tell you, it's... it's a little bit... it's a little bit wiffy in here.
Alec Hardison: It smells like hard work, that's what it smells like!

Sophie Devereaux: Nobody's going to recognize me.
