Michael Westen: [crossover ad introducing "Royal Pains": Michael is narrating a letter he's written Hank Lawson, who's opening a care package Michael sent him] Dear Dr. Hank, I understand you recently lost your job and had to find a new way to earn a living in an unfamiliar setting. I know exactly what that's like, so I've enclosed a few things that might come in handy: sunscreen, sunglasses, and a block of C-4 because you never know when you'll need a stable plastic explosive. Best of luck. Your pal, Michael Westen.

Divya Katdare: ["Characters Welcome" crossover ad with "Royal Pains": Divya Katdare is diagnosing Sam in a bar] It could be excessive blood loss or hypoglycemia. Are you on a diuretic?

Sam Axe: No.

Divya Katdare: Perhaps it's even psychogenic polydipsia.

Sam Axe: Oh?

Divya Katdare: Any one of those could be causing your excessive thirst.

Sam Axe: I see.

Waiter: [gives Sam a beer bottle] Here you go, sir.

Sam Axe: Thank you.

[he takes a drink from it]

Sam Axe: Hey! What do you know? It's gone! It's like a miracle cure!

Divya Katdare: Miraculous.

Sam Axe: Doesn't mean it's stopped. Sammy's very sick.

Divya Katdare: Is this how you usually pick up women?

Sam Axe: No, usually I just get 'em drunk. Waiter!

Evan R. Lawson: The future #1 spy-for-hire agency in all of South Florida.

Sam Axe: [incredulous] Uh-huh?

Evan R. Lawson: Just imagine benches and T-shirts and coffee mugs! We're going to be rich but it's going to be amazing!

Sam Axe: Oh no, I'm going into a canyon here in Miami.

[makes garbled noises]

Evan R. Lawson: I'm going to call you right back. You stay right there. I'm going to call you right back.
