  • No mention of Brody's/Emily's photos.


Percy: You want to know who led the Pelicans in assists last year? Tyreke Evans. You want to talk micro brews? DBA on Frenchman has a solid 20 taps. And if the conversation moves to supermodels I'm a Kate Upton girl. 'Cause I appreciate curves.

LaSalle: Do you, now?

Percy: You know, I would totally ace boys' night.

LaSalle: I'll make sure and spread the word.

Lady: How long have you guys been trying?

Lieutenant Franco: Agent Brody.

Brody: Lieutenant Franco. You look like you're feeling better.

Franco: Thanks to your team.

Brody: We're just doing our job.

Franco: Still, was hoping I could thank you by maybe taking you out sometime.

Brody: Are you hitting on me at a funeral, Lieutenant?

Franco: Yeah, well, recently came to my attention that life can be short. So what do you think?

Brody: I think your timing is terrible. (Walks away) Call me tomorrow.

Franco: Try then. Got to warn you, my idea of a first date starts at 15,000 feet up.
