  • Quotes (31)

    • Mac: Why didn't you tell me you were related to the victim? Hector Vargas: Would it have changed anything? Mac: Of course. It changes everything. Every piece of evidence in this place will be called into question now. I'll have to narrow the scope of your involvement. Hector Vargas: Beyond what you already have? Observation, documentation. What else is left? Mac: Asking you to leave my crime scene.

    • Hector Vargas: Miguel's mother's my sister. Miguel's father was killed 12 years ago in an accident. And now her son lies there murdered, thousands of miles from home. I feel it's my duty to scrutinize this investigation every step of the way. Please put yourself in my shoes. If you had a relative that was killed in a foreign country, wouldn't you do the same? Mac: I would. But not by jeopardizing the crime scene.

    • Hector Vargas: Please wait outside. Mac: Why? So you can go over her alibi? Get the details of her story straight? Hector Vargas: Are you questioning my integrity? Mac: Have you given us a reason not to?

    • (Sid is holding a knife and gesturing as he tries to figure out how some knife wounds were inflicted) Lindsay: Planning on getting in a knife fight anytime soon?

    • Mac: Our homicide may not be a homicide. Hector Vargas: What are you talking about? Mac: I'm not ready to call it a homicide just yet.
