Pride: With all due respect, Director, you want me to make a choice between a traitor and one of my own, I'll take the shot every time. You want my badge, you know where to find me.

Brody: Thought I'd cook you something. You know, for, uh for saving my butt today.

Pride: Just part of the job.

Brody: Maybe so. Still felt good to know you had my back.
