    • Mac: (Enters his office to see Stella and Lindsay waiting for him) Something wrong? Stella: Lindsay's gonna take off for a little while. Mac: When? Lindsay: I leave tomorrow for Montana. A couple of months ago I got a call from the Bozeman's prosecutors office. They apprehend a suspect who was wanted in a multiple homicide ten years ago. Four girls. They were uh... they were friends of mine. I was the only witness. Mac: And the only survivor as I remember. Stella: They want her to testify. Lindsay: I still see their faces. My friends faces. The mothers' faces... I don't know what I'm more scared of. Standing in front of the monster who did this... or seeing those faces (She gets up as Stella gives her a hug) Stella: Hey, you take care of youself, kiddo. Lindsay: Thanks. Mac: (Gives Lindsay a hug) You're tough, Lindsay. You'll pull through this.

    • Hawkes: Hey. I thought you'd left. You okay? Lindsay: Yeah. Just, uh, tying up some loose ends. Have you seen Danny? Hawkes: Yeah, he's out in the field. Lindsay: (holding up a card) Could you, uh, make sure that he sees this? Hawkes: That's how you're going to tell him you're leaving? A card? Lindsay: It's not a big deal. I'll be back. Hawkes: At least call him. Give him a chance to say good-bye.

    • Danny: (about a skateboard being used as a weapon) My mother always told me those things were dangerous.

    • Stella: What would a woman be doing in the men's bathroom? Flack: I can think of several reasons. All with happier endings.
