Quentin: I'm not dying in a fucking rat maze.

Worth: What do ya think?
Leaven: You don't have a lot of lives left.

Quentin: Why don't you tell us what your purpose is, Worth?
Worth: Often wondered that myself. I'm just a guy, I work in an office building doing office building stuff. I wasn't exactly bursting with joie de vivre before I got here, life just sucks in general.
Holloway: Oh I can't stand that attitude.
Leaven: 'Cos he's right.

Holloway: No! It just makes me go, "Why me and not one of the other ten million doctors out there?"

Quentin: Is that your two cents worth, Worth?
Worth: For what it's worth.

Deliberate mistake: Leaven spends too much time thinking about if 645 and 372 are prime numbers to be believable. But she knows the factors of 649 and the result of 26 to the power of 3 almost immediately. Plus anyone with any maths knowledge whatsoever would know that any even number (or one divisible by 5) can't be prime, so 645 and 372 could be dismissed without even thinking about it.
