Brody: Morning.I come bearing gifts. New coffee shop finally opened up, and I got all fancy. Brought us lattes.

Pride: They're supposed to be amazing.

Brody: Right?

Pride: Yeah, it's got, like a, hang on It's got like a special taste or something, what?

Brody: Oh, shoot, you got Sonja's. It's soy.

Pride: Uh-huh.

Brody: (Offers a new cup) Here.

Pride: No, no, no. I don't want another one. I'll make my own.

Brody: Well, make one for Sonja, because these all have milk.

Pride: No, Sonja's not here. She's traveling.

Brody: She said she was done with FLETC.

Pride: Not FLETC. (coffee grinding) Personal.

Brody: (Talking to LaSalle) talk to Sonja lately?

LaSalle: It's been a couple days.

Brody: Pride says she's traveling. Personal matter.

LaSalle: Well, King says it...

Brody: Ah, it's more what he didn't say. Ah, it's more what he didn't say. (Looks at LaSalle) You're her work husband. Come on, what do you know?

LaSalle: Work Husband? Now what in the Sam Hill does that mean?

Brody: It's a thing. Everyone knows it. And you're Sonja's.

LaSalle: Now...(phone beeps)

Brody: Saved by the bell.

LaSalle: Question: why are you so sure Nolan's telling the truth?

Brody: His story is messy. You create a fake back story, it is clear. It's simple. And the way he talks about his wife he loves her.

LaSalle: Yeah, I bet he does. Enough to get in bed with her insurgent family.

Brody: He risked his life on that train to save those people. Why do that? Why are you so sure Nolan's lying?

LaSalle: Well, he was missing for four years. I mean, you hang around crazy long enough, be hard not to get suckered in. You lie with dogs, you wake up with fleas.

Brody: You're assuming that's all he experienced. Nolan's captors did terrible things, but the people who found him they saved his life. I mean, that would be enough to renew my faith in humanity.

LaSalle: Well, that says something about you, not Nolan Griffith.
