The One Who Got Away is the sixth episode in the first season and the sixth in the series.


The Doyles show their sentimental side as they help Jake’s high school girlfriend Stacey Layden run off into the sunset with her new husband, who’s running from both bad guys and good guys to just get away; Rose's past comes back to haunt her in the form of her ex-con husband Martin Poole, while Leslie weighs whether or not she wants Jake in her future.




  • Mal: If you're going to drink alone, drink alone in the basement like the rest of us.
    Jake: I'll buy you a pint; make up for being such a jerk earlier today.
    Mal: Ah, it's a shade early, but... okay.
    (Jake begins filming Johnny and a woman coming out of the hotel across the street)
    Mal: And here I thought you just wanted to share a pint with the old man.
    Jake: What, did you hit yourself in the head? Why would I ever want to do that?
  • Frank: Do yourself a favour: stay away from Stacey Layden, she's trouble.
    Jake: Yeah, starting to get that impression.
  • Sgt. Lang: So, along with the murder charge, you now on the hook for aiding and abetting a federal fugitive.
    Jake: Oh, that doesn't sound very good at all.
