  1. Domingo

    Series one, whenCallen tells Hetty ” that one of the thing he loves about her is ”

    Callen threatening Sam that he will play show songs in the car, after Dom has gone missing.

    Series five Callen reviewing the footage of his family in Russia.

    There are so many moments it is hard to choose

    For me, there have been a lot of great Callen moments, and I am sure I can come up with more but these are the ones I could think of off the top of my head:

    Callen walking through the Rostoff house at the end of Pushback (S1)
    Callen on the beach in Romania and telling Sam about his past
    Callen infiltrating the assassins group in Black Widow staring down the barrel of a gun without even blinking (S2)
    Callen watching the movie about his family and talking about his foster family in Reznikov, N
    When Callen has to identify the dead body he believes could be Sam in S3 (can’t remember the episode name at the moment, sorry)
    Callen visiting Janvier in his cell at the end of Ascension
    The flashbacks in Rage
    In Keelson’s warehouse standing in front of his files not being able to look into them
    Callen being shot in Legend

  3. Crystal

    These are 6 of my most favorite Callen moments, although basically every second he is on my TV screen is a favorite moment 🙂

    1. Seeing his son Micheal for first time in “Past Lives” – Kristen telling him Micheal isn’t his son. I am convinced Kristen lied to Callen.

    2. End of “Grey Man”, the look on his face and slight twitch he makes when Hetty says, “Perhaps he was respecting the mother’s wishes” –Great tie in to “Past Lives” & Callen respecting Kristen’s wishes for him to stay away as she has moved on with her life.

    3. Standing in Janvier’s cell, and Janvier’s comment about the game not being over.

    4. Sipping his beer on “Buddy” waiting for Tracy to return – karma is a bitch & so is Tracy Keller.

    5. Protecting the girl in “Spoils of War” and taking on Granger in the process. Awwww … my hero 🙂

    6. His line to Sam, “You my dog!” in “Inelegant Heart”

  4. Rayanne

    So many great Callen moments that it’s impossible to list them all. Here are a few…

    1. Ascension – last scene with janvier

    2. Blood brothers – when they find the younger brother and Callen unloads the gun

    3. Big Brother – when he teaches school

    4. Black Budget – when they have to give up their guns and phones. Looks good in those glasses.

  5. Caroline

    For me Callen is the most important person in the show.
    I sort of miss him when he is not around.
    But a few favorite moments
    – the end scene of Reznikof N. When he is watching the film
    – the ” is that a frog?” scene, the face he pulls… !
    – a lot of scenes with Hetty
    – at the end of Purity, his talk with Alex
    – the talk with Sam at the end of Rage, where he tells about Hetty saving him

  6. Agata

    So many moments with him…
    Partners- when Sam beat Callen and Callen stay in role.
    Tin soldiers- when Sam stop him as a cop and ask when Callen will back to work, becouse now he got ten cases, and when Callen open car trunk and there was stunned man.
    Callen, G- when Callen had car crash.
    Empty quiver- when Sam gets shot and Callen saved him and then protect both of them.
    Familia- when Callen quit a job.
    Humbug- when Callen had to go undercover to Joelle house.
    Reznikov N- when he is watching film
    Rage- Callen memores and emotions when Charlie was killed
    And so much more, Callen is my favorite agent and I have so much great moments with him…

    Its hard to choose one good Callen moment. I really liked season 4s Purity where plays catch with the boy who’s dad goes to jail. I also liked the scene earlier in that episode where Callen talks the boy out of releasing the poison into the city’s water. In season 5’s N. Reznikov episode, who couldn’t love the scene where Callen watches the video of his family. I also really enjoyed Callen in the season 1 episode when he learns he had a sister. There have just been too many good Callen moments to just pick one.

  9. Céline Floret

    All moments with Callen…
    – all episodes with Marcel Janvier
    – The Choosen One
    – all episodes when is looking for answers about his past (Familia, Reznikov N.,…)
    – when he is talking with Hetty, always great moments
    – bromance with Sam
    – when he is undercover
    – when he takes all risks to keep the team/people safe (Spiral, Empty Quiver…)
    – all the scenes with Arkady Kolcheck

  10. Richtsje

    Those moments mostly are related do his deeper feelings – anger, protection, regrets, hurt – emotions like that.

    – the anger he showed to Hetty when she told him about Grace and the others she tried to save (Raven & the Swans)
    – the moment Hetty tells Callen she knew his mother. There’s grief, hurt and anger at the same time.
    – the next moments when he punches the sandbag
    – the moment he sits on the bed in the Rostoff house, opens the cupboard door and lets his finger go over the ‘Callen 83’ carving
    – the banter moments wit Sam in the car when Sam lost his car.
    – the moment he is abroad (was it Sudan?), Sam is missing and he is about to identify a body which might be his partner
    – the moment he finds himself on the beach in Romania and realizes his past was there – and he remembers his mother was shot in there
    – the moments he got hurt – shot in Legend. Poisoned in Spiral, nearly in LD50 and again in Purify.
    – these moments he is with youngsters and kids. There was Michael (perhaps his son?), the rare moment he is alone with Alec (Purity), the militia young man he protects after all, the young girl in Afghanistan he insists to protect and also the moment with Kamran (when we see them on screen toghether, but long before when Sam reminds him of the Christmas gift)
    – these 3 minutes we see him watching the short film of his father and sister
    – the rage in all those great moments with Janvier [how I hope he will be back one day!!]
    – the relationship he has with Arkady. Friends? Not too sure.

    Oh, there must be so many more which I loved. Those just popped up easiest!!

  11. JaniceS

    One of my favorites was Season 4, Episode 7 – Skin Deep. Callen talks to Lance about being in foster care; it broke my heart.
