White Collar - 4.16 - In the Wind - Quotes

Hey Collars, I decided to try something different this time and make the quotes article more in line with what I do with Supernatural. Sound off in the comments below about how you would like to see the quotes go next season. Of course, also sound off about your favorite quotes too. White Collar has a lot of delicious dialogue so it makes discussion fun. Plus stay tuned this week for the beginning of our favorite season 4 episode contest. We will start by ranking the episodes and then do a head-to-head competition until we get to a final winner.
