John Reese: You're not gonna believe this, Finch. Shaw just got made by a ten-year-old.
Sameen Shaw: What kind of a weird-ass kid uses counter-surveillance tactics?
John Reese: I got it from here. But I think you freaked her out a little.
Sameen Shaw: It's mutual.
Genrika: Why would a small agency care what happens to me?
Sameen Shaw: We're not any agency. We're just a... I don't even know what we are. To be honest, I'm only in it for the dog.
Genrika: You guys have a dog?
Sameen Shaw: Hey Finch, how much do you know about chemistry?
Harold Finch: [slyly] Enough.
Harold Finch: [Minute later, an entire building explodes]
Genrika: What if I don't like it?
Sameen Shaw: You lived with Vadim, you can live anywhere. And it's supposed to be one of the top schools in the world. Not every kid gets to become the ward of a reclusive billionaire. Now if you're ever in trouble again, call this number.
Genrika: [Holds out her grandfather's medal] Don't sell it, okay? I know it won't mean much to you, but it'll mean a lot to me that you have it.
[Puts the medal in Shaw's hand]
Sameen Shaw: I'm just not wired for this kind of stuff, kid.
Genrika: I know. I figured you out. It's not that you don't have feelings. It's just like the volume is turned way down. Like the sound on an old tape. The voices are there. You just have to listen.
Officer Patrick Simmons: There are hundreds of us, you know. You really think you can win?
John Reese: Armies fall... one soldier at a time.
Officer Mike Laskey: You know, when they, uh, assigned me to you, they told me to play the dumb rookie, see what I could find out. But Simmons gave me the authority to pull your card anytime I want. What ya think, Jerry? Should I earn myself a new partner?
Officer Joss Carter: You don't even know who you are yet, son. Do you? But you wanna play Billy Badass? You go right ahead. But I spent enough time with you to know you're afraid of me. That's why you have your idiot friend here for backup. I know you, Laskey. Just like I know Jerry back there is a lieutenant in Bronx Vice who paid for this bar with dirty cash from shaking down hookers. And I have the proof to put him away for it. Now I was gonna wait and arrest you two with everyone else. But if this is how you wanna play it, little man, guess I'll have to take you down right now.
[Pulls out her cuffs]
Officer Joss Carter: You both can go easy or it can be hard.
Jerry: [Pointing a gun] They should've killed you, you stupid bit -
[Carter shoots him. Turns to Laskey]
Officer Joss Carter: Put the gun down. Put it down!
Officer Joss Carter: Sit down! Now we gotta figure this out.
Officer Mike Laskey: Figure this out? You just killed him.
Officer Joss Carter: No. You did.
[Holds up his gun]
Officer Joss Carter: Registered to you in the state of New Jersey. All I gotta do is submit it for ballistics. But I'm not gonna do that. Not yet. You don't work for HR anymore, son. You work for me now.
Genrika: What's your name?
Sameen Shaw: Not important.
Genrika: Well, who are you? Why are you here? How'd you know I was gonna be in trouble?
Sameen Shaw: [Turns to her phone] How's it going, John?
John Reese: Still clearing our extraction route, same as I was two minutes ago.
Genrika: Who's John?
[Shaw is silent]
Genrika: Is he your friend?
[Shaw is still silent]
Genrika: Is he your boyfriend?
Sameen Shaw: No.
Genrika: [after poking Shaw] I thought you might be a robot.
John Reese: Finch, I'm closing in on the kidnapper's cell.
[Bumps into Carter. She is also tracking a cell]
Officer Joss Carter: That's my guy.
John Reese: Paying my guy.
Sameen Shaw: Where's the girl?
Peter Yogorov: That's HR's deal. The cops might kill a kid. My people have standards.
Sameen Shaw: [Holds up a drug bag] You know where they make this stuff?
Peter Yogorov: I just handle distribution.
Sameen Shaw: Ever try it?
Peter Yogorov: Hell no. My body's a temple.
Sameen Shaw: Have you left the country in the last six months?
Peter Yogorov: No.
Sameen Shaw: Ever had unprotected sex?
Peter Yogorov: Why? You offering?
[Shaw just gives him a look]
Peter Yogorov: No.
Sameen Shaw: Ever had hepatitis, malaria, Chagas disease, or babesiosis?
Peter Yogorov: What the hell is this about?
Sameen Shaw: I need blood. So I'm taking yours.
Sameen Shaw: Get HR on the phone.
Peter Yogorov: [Calls Simmons] Someone wants to talk with you.
Sameen Shaw: Put the girl on the phone, or I paint the walls with Yogorov's brains.
Genrika: Shaw, is that you?
Sameen Shaw: Hang on, kiddo. I'm coming for you.
Officer Patrick Simmons: [Into a walkie] All right, we're about to get the tapes and the man in the suit. Showtime, people. Prepare to fire on my order. Acknowledge.
Officer Patrick Simmons: Acknowledge, one.
Officer Patrick Simmons: Acknowledge, two.
Officer Patrick Simmons: Where is everybody?
John Reese: [Behind him] Officer, I'd like to report a kidnapping.
Sameen Shaw: Finch. I think I might know what this is all about. Gen has this whole building wired, and it looks like someone found out what she was up to.
Harold Finch: Any idea who?
Sameen Shaw: [Turns to Gen] Did any of the people you ever recorded talk about committing any crimes?
Genrika: Lots of them. I bugged anyone who looked suspicious.
Sameen Shaw: Did it ever occur to you that that might have been a really bad idea?
Genrika: I was just trying to get the drug dealers out of my building.
Sameen Shaw: Did you give the tapes to anyone?
Genrika: Not yet. New York's just like Russia - you can't trust the cops. I was waiting till I had something on the dealers that was too big to ignore.
Sameen Shaw: Yeah, they're not ignoring you, kid.
Genrika: Well, I know that now.
Eric Mathers: Look, Belinda, or whatever your name is you just saved my life. How can I ever possibly...
Sameen Shaw: [Starts walking away] Ugh. All done here, Finch.
Harold Finch: Not to be a stickler about etiquette, Ms. Shaw, but I believe that Mr. Mathers was in the midst of thanking you.
Sameen Shaw: You paid me to save him, not listen to him talk.
Officer Joss Carter: Busted, huh?
John Reese: Finch and I have known about your side project for a while. From what we've seen, you've got enough to bring down half the organization. You could bust them, make deals to take down the rest.
Officer Joss Carter: Special Agent Donnelly tried that. But HR rebuilt itself from ashes 'cause we didn't cut off the head. If we had, Cal might still be alive. I'm playing by different rules now. No deals. And I won't make a move until I can bring down the boss.
Sameen Shaw: So now you live with, um-...
Genrika: Vadim. We're, like, third cousins or something. He's supposed to be taking care of me now. Which means he gets an extra 200 a month and a free place to live.
Vadim Loginov: They should pay me twice that to put up with her. Always sneaking around, taking pictures. Crazy little girl thinks she's a spy.
Genrika: I'm just practicing for my career.
Sameen Shaw: Career doing what?
Genrika: International espionage.
Harold Finch: Mr. Reese, we need to have a talk about Ms. Shaw.
John Reese: Uh...
Harold Finch: Don't worry, I've got us up on a private line. Look, it won't do to save this little girl's life only to have her scared to death by Ms. Shaw. Perhaps it would be best if we kept her at arm's length from Ms. Zhirova.
Sameen Shaw: Fine with me, I hate kids.
Harold Finch: [Surprised] Ms. Shaw?
Sameen Shaw: What, Finch? You think I didn't bug your office?
Genrika: [after Genrika is almost kidnapped] Any idea what this is about?
Sameen Shaw: Do you know who those men were or why they tried to grab you?
Genrika: Probably because I'm a spy.
Sameen Shaw: [to Finch] She doesn't know.
Genrika: What's wrong with you? I mean, why are you like this?
Sameen Shaw: You know that thing that made you flinch? I don't get that.
Genrika: You don't get scared?
Sameen Shaw: Or sad. Or happy or lonely. I do angry okay, but that's about it.
John Reese: Bear found blood, Shaw. A lot of it. And he seems to think it's yours.
Sameen Shaw: I'm fine.
Harold Finch: I'm sending you the address of a doctor who owes us a favor. John can track the man with the tremors. And I think I finally have the means to determine why she was abducted. I've recovered Gen's tapes right where she said they were. A girl after my own heart.
Sameen Shaw: I know this went sideways, Finch. But you can't bench me for every mistake.
Harold Finch: I'm not punishing you for an error. I'm protecting you because you're hurt. You've done enough, Ms. Shaw. We'll take it from here.
Harold Finch: Ms. Shaw, everything all right?
Sameen Shaw: Do you know who took Gen?
Harold Finch: Not yet. But I can't help noticing that you are nowhere near the doctor that I recommended. In fact, you seem to be -
[Shaw busts open Vadim's door]
Officer Joss Carter: So you're having a problem with someone at work. Who?
Officer Mike Laskey: You. I mean, what's going on? I'm supposed to have your back, but how can I help you if you don't even talk to me?
Officer Joss Carter: I'm fine.
Officer Mike Laskey: Like hell you are. With the secret phone calls in the night, ducking out in the middle of a shift, hush-hush meetings with some man in a suit. Who is he, anyway? 'Cause I don't think he's your boyfriend.
Officer Joss Carter: Why are you so curious? Is it maybe because of this?
[Holds up a picture of Laskey with HR]
Officer Joss Carter: I know, Laskey. I've known from the second your ass landed in my car
Officer Mike Laskey: Do you have any idea what it's like?
Officer Joss Carter: What what's like?
Officer Mike Laskey: Riding around all day with an arrogant bitch who doesn't know her place. They spared your life, but you keep pushing. And now your pal in the suit is gonna pay the price.
Officer Joss Carter: Trust me, he is not the one you should be worried about.
Sameen Shaw: So I, uh, disobeyed some - Pretty much all of your orders. Am I fired?
Harold Finch: On the contrary, Ms. Shaw. I think you finally got the job. Now about that bug in my library...
Sameen Shaw: Haven't found it yet, have you?
