The director wanted me to help as much as I could but if someone was getting too close, I was to drop it.

I feel like a stowaway on someone's honeymoon.
She's convinced it's someone looking for Howie.
Someone broke into her place for god's sake!
Howie always has the option of quitting and denying he's the tipster if someone comes close to revealing him.
But something; no someone, was threatening that tranquility.
I wouldn't go anywhere with someone, or get in a car or stuff like that.
My parked car was notice to a visitor that someone was here.

This guy drives up, no lights, sees a car in the driveway so he must realize someone is home.
Someone broke into this house of one of my targets and some sort of mayhem followed.
In any event, someone is permanently finished doing anything.
Was this break in and shooting a coincidental event or might someone else have been as clever as I at tracking down this nefarious tipster?
How else could someone have made a connection directly to Howie?

We drive home from a bar, like we all have done, only someone steps off a curb and we're ruined for life.

Someone check the local papers for sales offerings the last week.
Two people laughed aloud and someone growled about their federal tax dollars at work.
As incredible as this psychic ability is, the whole world knows something or someone can do this.
Someone waved him back inside the command trailer.
She has begun seeing someone; a young man who does grounds keeping work at the Country Club and is a half dozen years her junior.
He sensed rather than saw that someone was in it, watching them.
Either he got smart fast or someone tipped him off.
You got someone free to take a look?
Someone's going to ask you a question tomorrow morning.
She looked at it, flushing to think someone had taken the time to figure out her sizes.
She found herself hurrying around him to the couch at his low growl and suspected he wasn't someone who ever repeated anything.
Her heart leapt, and she stood, halfway to him before his sharp look reminded her he wasn't someone she wanted to approach.
After all, that spark was why he fought so hard, so humans didn't turn into someone like him.
Someone knocked at the door before she could turn on more than the living room lights.
You ever meet someone and you knew there was something just wrong about them?
Don't talk to strangers, and if you see someone with red eyes, run like hell back to Dusty.
I'm so sorry, but with my gift, I felt you had some sort of pain, maybe you lost someone once, long ago?
Toni was asleep at the computer. … Maybe you lost someone once.
Can you bring in someone for me to check their future?
I mean, it's one thing to hurt yourself but to hurt someone else is just wrong!
Both jumped at his tone, and he waited, wanting to pick a fight with someone.
Dusty waited for Bianca to defend him, so he could tear into someone, anyone.
Someone's gotta help save the world.
Talon's an idiot, but he's getting help from someone else.
Someone beat on the door across the hall loud enough for Bianca to hear over the TV and sporadic thunder.
She hesitated then asked, "Can you call someone to come get me?"
Dusty should have given you a means of contacting someone in an emergency, he said with disapproval.
The bad guys have someone telling them where to look.
Are you seeing someone?
Once Dusty died, someone had to take care of the girls.
Puzzled, she started to respond when someone rushed down the stairs by her.
He almost chortled at the ridiculous thought, wishing someone was there with him to tell.
His light was off, a sign he'd been sleeping too hard to notice someone come in.
Maybe … if you want to send in someone to help, then they can help me kill the bugs and rats?
They were in someone's living room.
With a frown, she wondered why she'd never seen it before, why she wasted seven years trying to make things work with someone who couldn't hold a candle to the man she was meant to be with.
You wouldn't ask someone you hated unless you were desperate.
He'd claimed someone would try to kill her, and the man they sought was here.
Pacing in her room, she tried hard not to think of what her father was capable of doing to someone he thought was a threat to her.
And how did she stomach the thought of her father doing such a thing to someone?
I'll find someone else to do the job.
Darian cocked his head to the side, as if hearing someone call his name.
Dusty trusted her for a reason, and if Dusty trusted someone, Damian knew she was the best at what she did.
Someone else moved silently down the hall ahead of him, and he slowed his stride.
For someone who needs more power, it's a very useful talent.
I can call someone to come get you and then I think you shouldn't try to find me anymore.
It appears as if either you, Damian, or you, Jonny, sent someone to kill her.
I was thinking even someone who doesn't fear death, fears something else.
It'll take a while for you to adjust and for them to adjust to someone new.
It's always nice to know someone cares, Jule replied.
The ache within her deepened at the idea of trusting someone for the first time in her life, and the energy flowing between them grew more intense.
Watch your back until I have someone else assigned to station.
Figured it'd keep me busy 'til Jule brings in someone else.
The sight of such normalcy calmed her, until someone brushed against her.
Someone careened into her as she pried her cell from her pocket.
Someone touched her, and visions flared across her mind.
I ran into someone I knew from college, Jake said and began to pace again, half-lost in his thoughts as he spoke.
Her last hope for understanding what was wrong with her was someone she innately knew she didn't want to meet.
When someone gives me some more definitive info on her, I'll tell you.
Damian wasn't sure how someone going from the second to first floor had managed to get bloody enough to look like she crawled through a war zone.
He wouldn't let someone like her get stuck in the middle of their war.
How long could she live like this, drinking someone else's blood?
I think I can teach myself how to keep from seeing deaths whenever I touch someone.
She yelped as someone grabbed her hips and pulled her from the edge of the balcony.
I just signed their death warrants, and you think I'd stoop so low as to point the gun at someone because I'm jealous?
No. It was Darian's rule—if you trust someone, don't do it.
She didn't like seeing someone else suffer the way she did every time she thought of Cody or Jake or others dying.
You must be someone important.
Someone brought you in, Linda said wisely.
That says a lot for someone, you know?
Damian regarded her coolly, unwilling to let someone so undeserving get the best of him.
He'd never thought much of that talent, the ability to see into someone.
In hindsight, he wondered how he'd ever been fooled or why he'd settle for Claire when there was someone like Sofia out there, who'd love him for him and not for his title.
He cocked his head to the side, as if listening to someone.
Jule had never said what he'd done to piss someone off and get exiled to earth, but it must have been bad if the Watcher's kind clipped his powers and sent him packing.
The thought of an eternity with someone incapable of caring for her was a nightmare beyond those she had already lived.
Someone lost a bet, he said.
He taught me how to kill someone, by the way, she added.
An eternity with someone who was unable to care for her?
She lingered outside her door, waiting for someone to attack her.
Neither mate can have someone else on the side.
The sound of someone in the hallway made her freeze.
You and she never understood that, when it came to caring for someone else.
She saw someone waiting for her in the center of the in-between world and recognized Rhyn.
Caring for someone is a vulnerability.
I didn't think you'd hesitate to help someone, if you could.
She'd never before been able to tell when someone lied to her or when they were manipulating her.
Only someone as sweet as you would say that about the Dark One.
Send someone to grab Gabriel's soul?
Frantically, she tried to recall anything anyone might've told her about suppressing information from someone reading her mind.
She'd never paid much attention to appliances but imagined they might be intriguing to someone who had never seen them before.
Accepting, loving, trusting someone – even if bonded – was beyond Immortal Laws to dictate.
If you're interested in being the friend of someone like me.
My mate, helping someone win a deal against her.
But no, I take no satisfaction out of seeing someone hurting.
She wondered if it was because of the thought of her seducing someone else or because of her triumph at winning his affection, even if he beat her at every other thing.
She wasn't going to spend her eternity with someone who didn't care for her.
Someone is summoning me.
Maybe someone had accidentally summoned her, and she wasn't about to have yet another confrontation today.
They look as if someone slept in them.
Or maybe she just wants to prove to herself someone actually loves her enough and cares about her enough to punish her.
Not because someone will take a hairbrush to your backside if you're not honest, but because.
And they promised to someone else hope-to-die they wouldn't tell.
Like maybe you're there when someone else finds a dead guy.
There are some things important enough that you're forced to tell someone, regardless of what might happen you.
Someone told Caleb about this old mine and this thing they swore was in it.
A pretend skeleton someone put there to scare you?
Nobody knows where the man is and even if he's been in there a long, long time, someone must care about him, or at least maybe did back then, when it happened.
I'm just pleased to have someone interested in what I do.
Dean was sure that, deep down, she thought whacking at a ball or chasing one someone else clobbered was an extended children's game and certainly not a worthwhile profession.
Isn't there someone we can talk to?
And someone else found them in the first place and told Caleb about the discovery.
If this here skull wasn't broken, maybe someone would think it was the real McCoy—at least in the dark or from a distance.
And where would someone get clothes so old and dirty?
If someone tampered with the real bones, we don't want to give them a chance to clean up whatever they might have left behind.
Someone had driven the route recently.
Someone had carefully cleared the area.
Someone dropped it when they switched the bones for the ones Fitzgerald found!
Maybe someone gave us 'the finger' only this time it isn't an insult.
Someone had deliberately mis-marked their return route.
Maybe, but he strikes me as a more direct type—not someone who'd pull off a stunt like that.
More than enough, but once we reach the main Jeep road we're sure to see someone.
Nowadays, you'd be scared someone would kidnap a child but in the old days, no one ever thought of that stuff.
But I've always been content to let someone else wait on me.
It got me thinking that if someone wanted the place, there must be a reason.
After all, someone tried to get us lost in that mine and sabotaged our Jeep.
The number fell to three when a dinnertime caller remembered someone opening their purchase in the parking lot.
It was only a matter of time until someone looked in that theater junk.
Remember, Caleb knew where to find the bones because someone told him.
Someone had a campfire and it looked as if the door on the mine was used for fire wood.
She said her mother or someone took her calling card but she didn't explain.
Yes, Dean thought, unless someone decides to get more serious about stopping us.
You're not very good at following someone.
Yes. Only I believe someone swapped them for a theatrical prop.
Getting someone to buy all this nonsense is going to take some campaigning!
Look, I feel like a fool asking embarrassing questions, especially to someone as kind as you've been, but my wife and I promised a little girl we'd follow up on this.
If your bones belong to someone who impregnated a young girl years ago, why do you care now?
If someone wants to cover it up, let them.
Is she a friend of the family or just someone you're humping on the side?
A band tooted practice blasts, someone was yelling directions through an old fashioned megaphone, which were ignored, and Suzanne, whose nightly music show serenaded the tourists, warmed up the Star Spangled Banner in a voice that needed no mike.
Yes, Dean thought, and someone else knows we know.
Is someone in the mine, do you suppose?
Is someone shooting at us?
Heavy brush had totally obscured the entrance until someone had quite recently cut and pulled away the branches, exposing the opening.
The Deans, while making no comment on the discovery, realized this was how someone could have entered the mine and altered their markings while they were inside.
But someone was shooting at us and that gets my attention in a hurry.
Someone's gone over the side!
Look, there may be someone alive and hurt!
Cynthia's admonition to be careful echoed in his ears—but someone might be down there.
We were on a drug bust and someone tipped off the bad guys.
Maybe someone put it there.
That was a nice gesture on someone's part.
Common sense tells us the obvious is usually where the truth rests and the obvious is either Fitzgerald or someone in the Dawkins family.
He also withheld the identity of Josh, Dawkins Sr.'s mine manager, and the fact that someone fired a gun at the mine.
I think Billy Langstrom was killed because someone chased him down the mountain.
If the body were there, someone would have discovered it.
He rose to leave and then added, Whatever the age of that skeleton, the facts still remain that someone swapped the bones, someone stole the finger and 'metalman29' was offering an inflated price for the mine.
If that were the case, why did someone try so hard to cover up his identity?
That sounds like someone thought he was important.
Why would someone want to pay ten bucks for that?
Every time the phone rang for a year, we were sure someone had found the body.
That doesn't make it right to have someone accused unfairly.
When they questioned Jake Weller about the source of the high-level endorsement, he hinted Lydia Larkin knew someone in the system who'd pulled strings.
Only the Dark One was able to raise someone from the dead.
As someone accustomed to being in control of her world, she needed a little more time before she was ready to face him.
The clerk darted around the counter towards the corner, where someone had accidently tipped over a lit candelabra that was now burning the curtains.
Someone had figured out how to turn off the overhead lights that blinded her earlier.
According to the dealer I cornered, there's been some skirmishing between those loyal to you and those who want to install someone else.
When you touch someone, you feel nothing, not the warmth of their skin or the smoothness.
Gabriel rose from his position crouching over the body of someone he knew.
I'll have someone bring him over.
Deities did things differently, but he wasn't about to do what his predecessor would have and demand a favor of someone like Andre.
I've yet to meet someone who couldn't be handled, given the right approach.
