A retired CIA operative is paired with a young FBI agent to unravel the mystery of a senator's murder, with all signs pointing to a Soviet assassin.

Simon: I don't know how to be myself. It's like I'm permanently outside myself. Like, like you could push your hands straight through me if you wanted to. And I can see the type of man I want to be versus the type of man I actually am and I know that I'm doing it but I'm incapable of what needs to be done. I'm like Pinocchio, a wooden boy. Not a real boy. And it kills me.
Simon: I have all these things that I want to say to her, like... Like how I can tell she's a lonely person, even if other people can't. Cause I know what it feels like to be lost and lonely and invisible.
James: You can't be doing anything gay. No ice-cream cones.
Simon: I like ice cream.
James: Of course. It's delicious. Ice cream is fine in a cup, but in a cone is gay unless you're with a woman at the time.
Simon: Anything else?
James: No riding on a motorcycle with another man. Exceptions are drive-by shootings, bomb throwings and purse snatchings. Anything else is gay.
Simon: You seem to know a lot about this.
James: Defense wins championships.
Simon: It's terrible to be alone too much.
Workers' Services Executive: You don't exist anymore.
Simon: Excuse me?
Workers' Services Executive: You're no longer in the system.
Simon: Well, just put me back in the system.
Workers' Services Executive: I can't put you back in the system.
Simon: Why?
Workers' Services Executive: Because you don't exist. I can't put someone who doesn't exist in the system.
Simon: But I used to be in the system.
Workers' Services Executive: Not according to the system. In fact, according to the system, you've never existed.
Simon: How reliable is the system?
Workers' Services Executive: Hey, it's completely reliable.
Simon: Yes, but I used to exist. I do exist! I'm standing in the this room, aren't I?
Workers' Services Executive: And?
Simon: So how do I get back in the system?
Workers' Services Executive: You need a card.
Simon: Right. So can I please get a new card?
Workers' Services Executive: No.
Simon: Why?
Workers' Services Executive: Because you're not in the system.

Detective: There aren't too many like you. Are there Simon?
Simon: I'd like to think I'm pretty unique.
Simon: I don't want to be a boy held up by string.
Mr. Papadopoulos: Simon, give Rudolph his arm back!
Natalie Geary: Let me welcome you to our humble commode.

Tom Highland: Ben, would you consider working for us?
Ben Geary: [stunned]
Tom Highland: Think about it...
James: I would tear the asshole off an elephant for a piece of trim I wanted that bad.
Ben Geary: Open the gate. Open the...
[shouting]
Ben Geary: Open the goddamn gate! Now! C'mon!
Ben Geary: You're gonna "shoot her in the head"?
Paul Shepherdson: Just making a connection.
Oliver: I pieced together the photos of every murder and I laid them out chronologically. Oh, that red line right there indicates where his killing became erratic and inexplicable. So, all you've gotta do is set up a null hypothesis and try and prove it. And when you can't prove it, that means your original hypothesis must be true.
Ben Geary: Wait, wait.
Oliver: Take some fact. You said you believe Cassius returns to the scene of the crimes. And you've got photos of every murder. So set up a hypothesis of, say, Stephen Hawking is Cassius... which gives you a null hypothesis of Stephen Hawking is not Cassius. So, go through the photos and try and prove the null... that Rolling Thunder is not Cassius. If you can, that means your hypothesis is incorrect. If you can't... then depending on your "P" value of course... you've statistically proven your hypothesis must be true. Or that Stephen Hawking is Cassius. Yeah. Some of us didn't sleep our way through Logic and Stats at Harvard.
Tom Highland: I've never liked the coffee at the White House. I think it has something to do with the 150 year old china.
Ben Geary: Perfect. Cuz I was first in my class... at door watching.

Bozlovski: [whispering in Spanish] Better you forget them. You didn't see anything.
Paul Shepherdson: If the Russians used their women instead of missiles, we'd be wearing furry hats right now.
Bozlovski: [seeing dead bodies in landscape] America the beautiful.
Martin Miller: [about Bozlovski] This guy has used every single weapon you can think of. From an M-24 from 800 meters, to a rusty nail.
