DEA Agent: Javier, you should feel good about this.
Javier Rodriguez: I feel like a traitor.

On the good days, I feel like I get it, like it all makes sense. I can stay in the moment, I don't have to control everything in the future, and I believe everything is gonna work out fine. On the bad days I just want to grab the phone and start dialing numbers. I want to pull my hair and run through the streets screaming. But thanks to the people I've met in these rooms, like Margaret and Jim and Sarah, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna make it through today.

[to Francisco Flores] They say in Latin, "In vino veritas." Wine tells the truth. Use this to write down the addresses of those bastards who killed my captains.

Traffic Quotes

Teacher: [Robert Wakefield drags Seth out] Can I help you?
Robert Wakefield: Seth has to be excused. He's going on a field trip.

[high on coke] We act like we have all the answers and we're totally invincible, like our parents seem and their parents before them, and I'm sorry, that I have to be the one to say this, but it's fucking bullshit. For instance I know you jack-off thinking about Caroline even though you're supposedly "in love" with Vanessa. Whatever the fuck that means? I mean, what is that convention anyway? We're all this random collection of self-interest, and we just decide that we're gonna walk two by two down the fucking aisle to Noah's ark?
