Emily Quartermaine:
I've been searching my heart trying to find some sympathy for you, a little compassion. And I imagine that you weren't always like this. It must have been Connor's loss that took your sanity. I try to tell my myself that you aren't responsible for you actions and find excuses for poor, pathetic Mary. And then I realize that that's the exact mistake I have made all along - giving you the benefit of the doubt, looking for the deeper motive. My pity for you gave you the time you needed to keep Nikolas isolated and dependent on you, time for you try and have his baby, time enough for you to feel entitled to him. You are no one to feel sorry for, Mary Bishop. You are a loathsome, cunning, dangerous woman, and I hate you with every fiber of my being. More than anything, I wish that bullet had found its mark. You don't deserve to live.

Uncle Albert:
[after looking at an old WW2 photo of Uncle Albert's] Just a few hours after that photo was taken we was in action.



Del Boy:
That's all you need, innit?



Uncle Albert:
There was an American aircraft-carrier, anchored off-shore. The USS Pittsburgh. It was our job to protect her. Well, we'd only been sailing for about an hour and we crashed right into her. Cor, didn't half make a noise.



Del Boy:
[incredulous] You went and whacked into the boat that you were going out to protect?



Uncle Albert:
Yeah. It was a good job she was there actually, she picked up most of the survivors.



Rodney:
Was your ship badly damaged?



Uncle Albert:
*We* couldn't tell, Rodney, it sunk! Course, they tried to put the blame on me.



Del Boy:
Sounds fair.



Uncle Albert:
Just 'cos I was on watch at the time. I had me excuses ready!



Rodney:
What, were you drunk?



Uncle Albert:
Don't be silly! The American vessel was at battle stations and was showing no light. You weren't allowed. There was a war on.



Del Boy:
Course there was.



Uncle Albert:
So then they tried to get me on naval technicalities, like it happened in broad daylight.



Rodney:
You didn't see an aircraft carrier?



Del Boy:
Forty-two thousand tons of steel!



Uncle Albert:
Well I wasn't close enough!



Rodney:
You must have been reasonably close. Unc, you hit it!



Del Boy:
They'd have stood more chance with Ray Charles in the crow's nest!

Yurimaru:
Benisato, you mean Jubei Kibagami is the remnant of the government spies?



Benisato:
Possibly.



Yurimaru:
Why didn't you kill him?



Benisato:
Someone interfered.



Yurimaru:
No excuses accepted. If he is a government spy, he'll show up soon enough. Be sure to kill him next time.



Benisato:
I don't need your advice on that. If you don't mind I'll tell Gemma that in bed later on, do you mind Yurimaru?



Yurimaru:
Sleep well.

[trying to argue her way out of going on a trip to a tropical island for a prisonner exchange] I've go to have dinner with my mother tonight, Joe.

Det. Snr. Constable Harriet Walker:
Don't be ridiculous.



Det. Sgt. Joe Hill:
Are you worried about spending time alone with me on a tropical island?
