The awesomeness of quotes pt 7

This awesomeness of quotes is about Leverage. I stumbled on to this series, because of actor Christian Kane. He played the character of Lindsey MacDonald in Angel and I always sorta liked him. But then I watched Leverage, and man.... that's a good show. And Kane (Eliot) kicks some serious you-know-what. It's a very smart show with great - kinda weird - characters and I love that. Weird characters usually have the best lines, so here are a couple of those great ones. (Leverage is still on the air with new eps starting at the end of November)

To start of, these lines are repeatedly used during the seasons:
Eliot Spencer: "Dammit, Hardison!"
Eliot Spencer: "It's a very distinctive...(something)"
Nathan Ford: "Let's go steal a..."
Alec Hardison: "Age of the geek, baby!"

Season 1

1x01 - The Nigerian Job
Eliot: "I'm going to beat Dubenich so bad even the people that look like him are going to bleed."
Parker: "You won't get within a hundred yards. He knows your face. He knows all our faces."
Eliot: "He tried to kill us."
Parker: "More importantly he didn't pay us."
Eliot: "How is that more important?!"
Parker: "I take that personally."
Eliot: "There's somethin' wrong with you."
[after the con] 
Parker: "What is it with women and shoes?"
Sophie: "There's something wrong with you."
Eliot: "That's what I said!"

1x02 - The Homecoming Job
[While getting ready to repel off of a building]

Parker: "What?"
Hardison: "I just remembered gravity. And the squishiness of all my manly bits."

1x03 - The Two-Horse Job
Parker: [Crawling through an air duct] "Looks like Parker's gonna have to crawl through the air duct again. God forbid anyone else would have to learn how to frickin' crawl on their stomach through a tiny space. It's not rocket science, people."
Eliot: [on comms, from the truck] "Parker, you realize that we can still hear you?"
[Parker sighs exasperatedly]

1x06 - The Stork Job 
Nicolas: "So where are you from?"
Parker: "Where am I from? Oh, where am I from! Uh..."

Parker: "I'm from Pittsburgh, Detroit, Atlanta."
Nate: "I meant, pick one!"

Nate: "Where's Parker?"
Eliot: [walking into the office] "How the hell should I know?"
Hardison: "Can't reach her on the comms. She slipped the security grid at the embassy."
Sophie: "Where could she be?"

Hardison: "This is Parker we're talking about. She could be halfway across Europe by now. Trust me, she is gone."
Parker: [popping up to the left of Nate] "Who's gone? [everybody turns to her in surprise] What?"

1x07 -  The Wedding Job
Eliot: "I don't have to type anything, right?"
Nate: "Sophie, where are we at?"
Sophie: "Huh? I don’t know, Nate. I think you need to ask yourself that question. You called me, remember? And now we’re working together every day. I don’t know what you want. And to ask me that dressed like a Vicar. You’re a very strange man."
Nate: "No, no, no. I meant where are we at with finding the money?"

1x09 - The Snow Job
Parker: "'A man with one watch knows the time. A man with two is never sure'...I had fortune cookies for breakfast."

Hardison: "D-E-D, dead, baby."
Eliot and Nate: "D-E-A-D!"
Hardison: "I... I know how to... I was throwing a little style in it, just a little bit. A little style. I know how to spell 'dead,' dammit! I can steal a bank, I can spell 'dead'!"

Parker: "What, a what?"
Nate: "A baby doctor."
Parker: "Well, what if there's a train accident and there's stretchers everywhere and someone points to you and says 'Hey you! Help me with this sucking chest wound!'"

Parker: "Oh, you are so not operating on me."

2x04 - The Fairy Godparents Job
Hardison: "Looks like an ordinary cell phone, right? It's not, man. It's a metal detector. See, it uses pulse-induction technology that sends out a current that generates a magnetic field, and then...are you even listening?"
Eliot: "Yeah."
Hardison: "Well, what'd I say?"
Eliot: You were explaining how you're still a virgin?"

Nate: "There are three general exceptions for house arrest: personal safety, death of a relative, and family events."

2x05 - The Three Days of the Hunter Job
Parker: "Eliot, these conspiracies aren't real right?"
Eliot: "What do you mean?"

[later on] 
Parker: "So, I took your advice and did the whole touristy thing. Went to the museum, and it was amazing."
Hardison: "You see?"
Parker: "Yeah. They have a Guardian T-840 Security System. I've only seen those things in books. And the motion detectors--ooh, gorgeous! Six digital receptors. Six!"
Hardison: "What about the paintings?"
Parker: "What about the paintings?"

Parker: "Ooh! You'd look so cool with a scar!"
Sophie: "Wait, wait, wait, go back, hold on, let's-let's rewind--you skipped past me! You skipped past me."

Parker: "So, remember last night when you were playing with your pretend friends?"
Hardison: "They're not pretend, they're just not in the same room as me."

Sophie: "No, that was a fake. And not a very good one. No no no, sorry. My engraver, was awful."
Nate: "Ok, so where's the real one?"
Sophie (in her con voice): "I don't remember."
Nate: "Are you messing with me?"
Sophie: "When did I ever lie about a grift?"

5x09 - The Rundown Job
Eliot: "You guys stole a Michelangelo with tin foil and chewing gum! Figure it out!"

Like I said, the series is still going. When I have time I will add some new quotes. For now, all I can say is, start watching the show if you aren't already. I really like the writing. What I love is how all of these characters are so unique. They really are. And they are all a little quirky. Especially Parker. She has a dark past and is the least 'normal'. Which gives her some amazing lines and she keeps surpising the viewer with it. So, just because I really, really love Parker's character:
