Peter knows that Neal has secrets, things he'll never tell Peter if he has any choice in the matter. Most of Neal's past is a mystery. Peter still doesn't know who 'Herman' is, beyond some part of Neal's past that he still likes. They look enough alike to be brothers and Neal obviously gave him a fake name.

Peter knows 'Neal Caffrey' is an alias, albeit one Neal likes. If he ever figures out Neal's birth name, whoever he was as a child, he'll get Agent of the Year.

Neal speaks five languages fluently, including English. At least, five that Peter knows about. He'll need to update the list to include Greek. In his free time since Herman's visit, Peter has phonetically written out what he remembers from their conversation, trying to determine what dialect it is. He's had no success at all.

He could ask Neal. But Neal had been so happy...

Peter sighs and deletes all his research on the mystery dialect.
