LEVERAGE. ONE SCENE PER EPISODE.
HARDISON: How’d you know we’d be there?
NATE: Last week before the exhibit opens, security almost in place, but not fully staffed. Best time to case the joint. Plus I did chase all of you at one point or another.
ELIOT: [pointing at Sophie] Was she on this?
SOPHIE: She can hear you, okay?
HARDISON: Wait a minute, there is no this, Eliot.
[Nate separates from them to start looking at the plans]
PARKER: Sophie did come back for me.
ELIOT: Wouldn’t have had to if she wouldn’t have lied to you.
HARDISON: Wait, no calls, three months, I don’t need you people.
PARKER: What do you mean you don’t need us?
SOPHIE: [to Eliot] I’m sorry, I seem to remember a certain job with horses where I backed your play, actually.
ELIOT: I don’t care, you don’t con your crew!
[indistinct chattering. Nate whistles. Everyone shut up]
NATE: [looking at the plans] Glen Reader Security System here.
PARKER: And that’s not the worst of it. [she goes to the table. Sophie, Eliot and Hardison follow her]
PARKER: The Davids are under bulletproof glass on a motion detector pad.
SOPHIE: Environmentally sealed.
SOPHIE: Kept at a constant temperature and humidity in the case. I saw them working on the air flow.
HARDISON: No, no, no, you can get past the motion detectors, okay? I have a link to the security system and the video feed.
ELIOT: Guard rotation’s too heavy for a day grab. And at night they got two standing guards.
[Nate looks at them]
NATE: Why’d you come back? We agreed to scatter for six months. All of you, all of you, made an amateur move being there.
PARKER: It’s too hard to leave a job undone. It’s like an itch.
HARDISON: I put a lot of work into us. Into that office, it was like my second home. I blew up my second home.
ELIOT: As annoying as you people are, I quit this crew when I quit this crew. Nobody makes me leave.
1.13; The Second David Job
JOHN ROGERS: It’s an interesting arc over the course of the season where he [Nate] doesn’t want to leave them, they talk him into it, and by the end of it, he realizes whether he wants it or not, he has to pull them back together, in order for everyone to get the closure they need, including him.
DEAN DEVLIN: And you do get a sense that he really does loves this people.
JOHN ROGERS: Yes, in his own, broken way. He understands that they need each other.
DEAN DEVLIN: […] If you just watch Tim Hutton’s face as he slowly backs in the way watching them look at the plans, it tells you more about how his character feels about the other characters than really anything else he says. He’s such a daddy, looking at his kids discovering a toy.
