Colonel Mack Stoddard: Visiting time at the zoo.
Hannibal: [laughs] Stoddard, you're quite a character. A regular recruiting poster. Hiding out here in the bushes playing Bomba the jungle boy, acting as God. Doesn't your ego get a little squeezed in these wide open spaces?

Murdock: I don't know what it looks like. It looks like ink! I've been taking these things most of my life, and I still can't see anything in it.
Psychiatrist: No, look. It's a butterfly. See? Here's the wings... here's the head...
Murdock: (gasps) Yeah... yeah! It's a butterfly!
Psychiatrist: A butterfly. (puts next blot down) How about this one?
Murdock: Garbage bag. Empty garbage bag!

Psychiatrist: There's just one thing. Who are you, really? (pulls out book to show real author's face on back) See, I read Dr. Pepper's book. And you aren't him.
Face: DARN! (throws book on the ground) I will never forgive those idiots at the publishing house! My one chance at fame, and they put the wrong picture on the dust jacket!

Murdock: TRAAAAAASH BAGS! I want TRAAAAAASH BAGS! (gets one and stops shouting)
Psychiatrist: We give him one, and he shuts up for a couple of hours.
Face: Hmmm. Interesting. If I could talk to him, I might be able to determine if it's a genuine neurotic fixation or if our boy is trying to section eight his way into the soft walls of a prison psych ward.
Psychiatrist: I sure would appreciate that. None of us can get any sleep around here.

Face: Look Hannibal, there's about a hundred reasons why I hate this plan of yours, but my biggest objection, even bigger than my objection to letting someone else drive my 'vette, my biggest objection is sending the Golden Age of Television here to back up Tawnia while she's trying to scam a piece of scuzzy luggage like Harnett.
Murdock: Thanks for the support, O facial one.

Murdock: [sings] I'm a lumberjack, I'm ok. Sleep all night and then work all day. Wear my clothes just once a year. Smells real bad but I don't care. I'm a lumberjack, that's a fact.

Frankie: Hey, I couldn't help noticing that jacket's beginning to dry out and crack. Ever try tanning butter?
Murdock: Only on pancakes. It tastes pretty yucky.
Frankie: Huh?
Murdock: But it did turn my tongue a nice shade of brown.
Frankie: [to Face] Who is he?
Face: Well, uh, when we get on the plane you can sit next to him and if you figure it out, let us know.

[Murdock has just told Face that AJ Bancroft was his father]
Face: What kind of a friend are you?
Murdock: Well it still might not be true. It's possible that he isn't your father.
Face: Yeah, and it's possible he is. Why didn't you tell me Murdock, why? Why- why did you hide it from me?
Murdock: Because AJ begged me not to tell you, and I said OK, but if he didn't tell you, then I would.
Face: I see, so you tell me now, huh, after he's dead. Well your timing stinks!
Murdock: WELL HE WAS DYING! What do you want me to do?! It was a last request!
Face: Oh, I see... Well, it's nice to know where your loyalties are. And who else have you told? Hannibal, BA, Frankie, the newspaper boy?
Murdock: No no... Just you, me and... Stockwell knows.
Face: Stockwell? You- you told Stockwell about my father but you can't tell me?! I swear, you know, I don't understand what motivates you. And you know something? You were always the one that I thought I could count on.
Murdock: Well you still can count on me!
Face: Oh really?! Now because of you I may have lost the only chance I had to find out who my father was. Did you think it wasn't important?
Murdock: Face-
Face: Ah, just leave me alone...
Murdock: Listen, there's more to this story-
[Face shoves Murdock to the ground. They stare at each other for a moment and Murdock gets up]
Murdock: Good… good, good. You're perfectly clear about that. But let me tell you one thing. You remember when I was in the van and you caught me on the phone? And I told you I was talking to Erica and I asked you for your advice. I said someone had come to me and they told me something about Erica but th

Stockwell: Check us in, the name is Robins.
Face: Come on Murdock, let's go.
Frankie: Hey! Where you guys going huh? Whats happening?
Face: Well, if you were in a strange town and you need to find somebody, who do you ask?... Cab driver.
Frankie: Ah. Yeah, but Stockwell said to stay right here and check in.
Murdock: Well, that's great, that's great, you just do that, that's great
Frankie: To B.A: come on

Frankie: Well, uh, Face saw a girl he knows and Murdock, he, he saw....

Frankie: I've always thought of Johnny as some kind of ... Superman ya' know?
B.A: There ain't no body!
Frankie: They don't always find a body B.A
Murdock: Hey Frankie, do you know something we don't know? Why are you trying to convince us that Hannibal's dead?
Frankie: I'm not! I'm just trying to face facts. Everything we've heard so far says that Johnny's not alive.
Face: Frankie, there's not a shred of hard evidence that says that he's dead.
Frankie: Yeah, except that goon back there who says he was killed!
Silent Pause
Murdock: I'm, I'm sorry, i'm sorry. It's just that g- goons are not a very reliable source of information you know.
Face: Yeah, see the bottom line here Frankie is that were not gonna believe Hannibal's dead until we get some proof.
Murdock: If there's no body, then Hannibal is alive.
Face: I think the key to this whole mess is Bobby, that little peddycab peddler.
Frankie: Yeah how come you haven't let Stockwell in on that one!?
Murdock: Stockwell? Stockwell? Stockwell doesn't give a rats tail whether Hannibal is alive or dead!
B.A: You got that right crazy man.
'Stockwell walks into the room
Stockwell: O.K we're upgrading the status of this mission to Code Red. Now according to Colonel Smith's message, we've got 16 hours before the plutonium shipment changes hands. I have arranged for our friend back there to be picked up in a half an hour. So I want you to stay here until then.
Face: B.A and Frankie will uh, cover this end here for you, Murdock and I have something we've gotta check out.
Stockwell: No, you're not checking anything out un

TV Show: The A Team
Stockwell: Well, perhaps that was the wrong choice of words. No commander rests easily when one of his men has fallen. But men do die. Colonel Smith understood that. He took that responsibility. Now, we've got fifteen hours and fifty-eight minutes to find the plutonium, or it won't matter whether Hannibal Smith is alive or dead. The only thing that will matter, is whether he died in vain.
Another pause
Stockwell: Now, you went against my instructions and got involved in this peddycab mess. They tried to kill you. Face and Murdock get up to leave while Stockwell has his back turned . Obviously our cover was blown the minute you stepped in the hotel.
Stockwell loooks around to see Face and Murdock gone. Then he looks up at Frankie
Frankie: Uh, Face saw a girl.
B.A: And Murdock saw something in his head.
