Episode Quotes

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I'm flattered you think I'm up to it, but thieving is not my strongest suit. Luckily, we have an ace of spades among us. Isn't that right, Agent Keen?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I ran out of gas.
Madeline Pratt: Huh?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: I was so excited to get home I didn't even both to look. My head was just... I ran out of gas.
Madeline Pratt: What are you talking about?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: It was Christmas Eve. I pulled off to the side of the road, seemed like it'd been snowing for days. No traffic. No cars to come help. Just me and a car full of gifts. It was more than 20 year ago. I must have walked four miles. Five, maybe. It was so still. Just cold and white. The whole time all I could think about was them in our house. The warm light in the windows. The smoke from the chimney. The sound of my daughter at the piano. The smell of the tree, and the fire, oyster stew on the stove. I was so upset to think that I'd ruined Christmas for them, being late, leaving the gifts in the car. But the closer I got, the more I realized how funny the whole thing was. How much they'd love the story. Daddy running out of gas. How every Christmas they'd get such joy from telling that story at my expense. And then finally, I got there, I walked... I walked through the door. And there was just blood. All I saw was blood. All there was was blood. I can... I can still smell the nape of her neck. Feel her little... fingers on my cheek. Her whisper in my ear. That's why I didn't show up in Florence. It's why I haven't shown up in a lot of places over the years.
Donald Ressler: Your father's criminal record didn't show up on you background report. Maybe yours is missing too.
Elizabeth Keen: I don't have a criminal record.
Donald Ressler: Because you never committed a crime, or because you were never caught?
Elizabeth Keen: Yes. I believe my work speaks for itself.


  • Goof (continuity error): Novak hands Red a book with a black and white image of the Effigy, covering about half of the page. When Red looks at it, the image has changed to a colour image that fits the whole page.
  • Goof (factual errors): It is simply not true that you enter another country's territory when you are in their embassy.
  • Goof (factual errors): The painting in Red's borrowed apartment, supposedly Vermeer's "A Young Woman Seated at the Virginal" is about 3 times the size of the actual work. The original which is one of Vermeer's smallest paintings is only 9 7/8" x 7 7/8" (25.2 cm x 20 cm.)
