- Maybe it's time you give her a second chance.
- What'll we do with the missile?
- I'm sure we'll think of something.

- Nice of you to show up.
- Was about to close my third case of the day.
- I wanted to make sure
- I had a chance to brag about it.
- Fusco: Mickey's still out there.
- I'm gonna get him.

- Fusco, grab Andre and go out the back exit now.
- Um, I'm sorry. I have to go.

- Now we get to kill two birds with one stone.
- Should we tie them up just in case?
- What was the point of all this, miss groves?
