    • (After they've ordered food from a food truck) Camille: Would you try it? Hawkes: You first. Camille: I promise you won't regret it. Besides, I'm a trained nurse, remember? Anything goes wrong... Hawkes: Yeah... Camille: I know... mouth-to-mouth.

    • Camille: I'm really happy you played hooky today with me, Sheldon. Hawkes: You were always a bad influence, Camille. Camille: Really? Hawkes: I like that.

    • (At the crime scene of a food truck that has exploded) Flack: Maybe we're looking at a truck malfunction, then. I'll pull the vehicle inspection report, see what we get. Mac: Don't waste your time. I just found traces of Triacetone Triperoxide. Flack: Doesn't sound too appetizing. Mac: It's not. TATP is a powerful explosive made from household chemicals.

    • Jo: I thought you called in sick today, didn't you? Hawkes: Yeah. About that, I, um... Jo: Save all that for Mac. Make sure these gentlemen give you a clean bill of health before you come back to work.

    • Danny: I'll get you something tasty as soon as we're done. Lindsay: I want a bowl of grits, two eggs over-medium and sausage, and wheat toast with a lot of butter from that soul food place on Bleecker. And... I want a double cheeseburger with large fries and a Creamsicle float from that place in Madison Square Park. Danny: That's it? (Suddenly he has a thought and gives her a look) Lindsay: I'm not pregnant. Just hungry.
