    • (Telephone rings in Leonard Brook's apartment) Mac: (Addressing a young officer) Answer it, just say hello.

    • (At a crime scene where a woman has been burnt alive inside an elevator)
      Jo: Oh my God, Mac. Looks like those pipes were the source of the heat. Someone turned this elevator into a boiler.
      Mac: Somebody turned this elevator into a torture chamber.

    • Flack: What's his endgame here, Mac?
      Mac: Whatever it is, Leonard Brooks had 15 long years to plan it.

    • Flack: Turns out Brooks has no known friends or associates, which doesn't shock me, having met the man.
      Mac: He's independent and self-reliant. Makes him even more unpredictable.

    • Leonard Brooks: Press is wrong about me, you know?
      Mac: Don't like being called a monster?
      Leonard Brooks: No, that part is accurate. I am a monster, but please tell those reporters my victim was anything but innocent.

      Rob Morrow guests as a serial arsonist seeking vengeance. Does Rob make a better good guy (Don in Numb3rs) or bad guy?
