  • Brody asks Sebastian to examine the photos sent to her.
  • Sebastian's nickname at high school was "Mr. Butternut".
  • Goof: Unlike the idiot TessT on, US SEALS or any other Special Forces unit, do not wear insignia during missions or even training.


LaSalle: Smooth motions. Keep a rhythm.

Percy: Get Pride bought a bar, working out a new phase in his life; I also get chipping in before work, help him set the place up-- but what I don't get is why I'm the only one laboring.

LaSalle: Uh, I'm in recovery. Remember? 'Cause Pride shot me?

Percy: You don't watch it, I'm gonna shoot you next.

  • Brody comes in*

Percy: So, uh, what's your excuse, Merri?

Brody: I know it may look like I'm slacking, but we've got you doing advanced field training.

LaSalle: Nope. Multitasking. If I tell you I went to the MCRD to see the RTB to meet the SDI...

Percy: You'd go to the Marine Corps Depot to the Recruit Training Battalion to see the Senior Drill Instructor.

LaSalle: Marine captain enters a Navy captain's berth on a ship.

Brody: Who salutes first?

Percy: Typically, Marine salutes sailor-- Navy captain has rank-- but in this case, no one salutes because they're indoors. (whispers): Poof.

LaSalle: Goat Locker? What is it?

Percy: The, uh goat locker is where you store your goats.

Brody: Chief petty officer's galley and sleeping area (phone chirps) on a ship.

LaSalle: Terminology may not matter in the ATF, but it's the lifeblood of the Navy.

Sebastian: Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Louisiana anymore.
