"The Shadow Line: Episode #1.7" (2011)
Commander Khokar: [to Gabriel, after he has found out that Khokar unsuccessfully tried to have Gatehouse killed] And what do you intend to do with that information?
Jonah Gabriel: I think, more importantly, what is it that you intend to do? Because of the cleverest killers since the Borgias knows that you just tried to kill him. So what do you think he's going to do next?

Commander Penney: [Penney explains the purpose of Counterpoint to Jonah] We provide for the future - your future.
Jonah Gabriel: Harvey Wratten didn't get one, and he was one of yours.
Commander Penney: Gatehouse gave him an opportunity to retire. He didn't take it.
Jonah Gabriel: So you made him by putting him in jail?
Commander Penney: And then Glickman had this crisis of loyalty and told him about us, and Harvey threatened to tell everybody else unless we got him out. So, get him out we did.
Jonah Gabriel: So then you gave the money to Gatehouse?
Commander Penney: To buy drugs to give to Customs to get Harvey a Royal Pardon. And when he got it, I think we might have left it at that, everybody. It was so compromised. But Gatehouse decided to close Harvey's book. So that's what he did. And we've been cleaning up ever since.

Commander Penney: [about Counterpoint] He's starting it again, you know?
Jonah Gabriel: Who?
Commander Penney: Gatehouse. Whole new set of players.
Jonah Gabriel: Who are they?
Commander Penney: You think you can stop this? He'll kill you.
Jonah Gabriel: He hasn't yet.
Commander Penney: You can't stop this. That's what we were trying to do. Look what's happened to me.
Jonah Gabriel: I can protect you.
Commander Penney: [shaking his head] It was foolish of me to think you could even try.

Gatehouse: [Gabriel tries to stop Gatehouse] Why are you doing this?
Jonah Gabriel: Because it matters.
Gatehouse: For other people to see you, standing out there in all that bright, white light? I'm sure it does matter. The problem is, Jonah Gabriel, that kind of glare, it just turns you blind. Because all I have to do is this...
[Gatehouse flicks open his lighter, lights it and then flicks it out]
Gatehouse: ... and your light goes out.
Jonah Gabriel: [the laser that was aimed at Gatehouse is then directed at Gabriel. Gatehouse then blows gently as if he is blowing out a light, and then Lia Honey, who is holding the sniper rifle, shoots Gabriel] No!


"The Shadow Line: Episode #1.2" (2011)
Jonah Gabriel: [when his police car is caught in a traffic jam] I'm on foot! Typical fucking British car chase!


"The Shadow Line: Episode #1.5" (2011)
Commander Khokar: [Gabriel has just discovered about the cover-up of Delaney's drug dealing] Where are you going to go with this? Over my head?
Jonah Gabriel: I might hit a wall, but sooner or later I'll find a gate.
Commander Khokar: And what are you going to tell them when you do? How you forgot to log the operation on the night you went out with Delaney? Why didn't you do that, Jonah? Unless you didn't want them to know where you were? That's got to look shady in anyone's book. You'll end up in jail.
Jonah Gabriel: With you in the cell next door, sir.
Commander Khokar: And all of us without our pension. So what's your wife going to do then? Especially now you've got a baby on the way?
[Gabriel is taken aback]
Commander Khokar: Good news travels fast. Bad news we can bury.
Jonah Gabriel: I'm not one of you.
Commander Khokar: [a dark smile on his face] But you don't know that, though, do you? Because you can't remember. And going by the evidence, I'd say that's exactly who you are. Listen, you're fine. In fact, you're better than that. A cop with no faults, how does he know where to find other people's? Now, let's be clear. I'm saying we should all move on now. All together. Because frankly, what other choice do we have? It's the Shadow Line, Gabriel. It' where we walk.
