‘Quantico’ pilot includes obligatory summer camp reference

Any time a show has characters in a dormitory or prison environment, a reference to summer camp is almost obligatory.

Shelby Wyatt (Johanna Braddy) makes that reference in the pilot episode of ABC show Quantico when she is settling into her dorm room at the FBI training facility in Virginia that gives the show its name.

“Thirty years old and I am back at summer camp,” she says to her roommate, Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra). 

Whatever summer camp feel the show might have had introducing the characters upon their arrival, it doesn’t last long as one of the recruits ends up committing suicide during an activity where they have to find out what information had been redacted in their FBI file.
