  • Angela's Eyes is about a young FBI agent who is blessed with the ability to almost instantly detect whether or not someone is telling the truth. Angela was spurred to perfect this talent by her parents' painful lies. When she was 14 years old, she discovered that her parents were actually spies, who are now serving long prison sentences for the crime of treason. Can Angela redeem her family, help her troubled younger brother, and keep her own life and career in order? We'll never know - the series was cancelled after one season.moreless

    • Peter (on finding the bug in his phone): Are you completely emotionally damaged?

    • Leo: That girl is pathological. Angela: Mm-hmm, which puts her in group three. Leo: What the hell is that, your latest theory? Angela: Okay, healthy people for the most part tell the truth. When they lie it's usually for socially acceptable reasons, to spare someone's feelings or avoid embarrassment. That's group one. Leo: Okay, what's number two? Angela: That would be your garden variety liars. They're the type that embellish accomplishments, cheat on their spouses, stab colleagues in the back to climb the corporate ladder. See, those two groups, it's easy to see when they're being deceitful, but Julie's in the third group, the pathological ones. They lie so much, about so many different things, that reality simply disappears, and then everything that they say is the truth. Leo But also a lie.

    • (about the suspect, Andy Phillips) Angela: So, did P.D. ask him if he was having an affair? Leo: Quote, "I have never cheated on my wife", end quote. Angela: Looks like Andy's nose is growing.

    • Angela: See, good liars, they lead you down a road, carefully planting various signs, until you're in exactly the place that they want you. Then, they can tell you anything that they want, and you'll believe it. Dozer: I don't understand, are you saying the guy's a liar or not? Angela: I'm saying that he's telling the truth, but -- that doesn't mean that he's not a liar. Leo: All right, so let me get this straight, he's not not telling the truth, and we're not not skeptical that he's not not the killer. Angela: Something like that.

    • Peter Wagner: (to Angela) You have this thing about liars, Angela, and yet you lie more than anyone I know.

    • Angela: So the Patriot Act says that I can walk into any Mosque, but the Mayor is keeping me out of a church.

    • Angela: They're pros. Leo: Kinda like Butch and Sundance. Dozer: I loved that movie.

    • Angela: What did Brad do to piss you off? Tap the pharmaceutical truck on his own and keep the money for himself? Ed: He brought drugs into our school, infected our children! Angela: So drugs... are bad, but armed robbery and grand larceny are good?
