    • Raydor: (at the crime scene) Buzz, what are you doing right now?
      Buzz: Uh, my job.
      Raydor: Do you know how to get to St. Joseph’s from here?
      Provenza: St. Joseph’s? Has someone forgotten the LAPD policy on making requests for personal favors from civilian employees?
      Raydor: I am not doing that. I am asking for help keeping a material witness in compliance with the law regarding the education of minors.
      Provenza: In that case, I will withdraw my objection if on his way back the civilian employee can pick up a coffee order.
      Buzz: What?
      Provenza: Non-fat vanilla latte. See what everyone else wants.

    • Sanchez: (at the crime scene) Anything wrong, senor?
      Provenza: Other than watching everything I care about being taken from me as I shuffle towards the grave and having my breakfast interrupted by another murder, not much.

    • Rusty: I can be civil as long as we both admit that sooner or later, I'm gonna have to leave and start over somewhere else.
      Raydor: That's true. Whatever happens here, you will one day go off on your own and be the new kid again. But no matter where you go, no matter'll never be a stranger to me. I will always know you.
      Rusty: Whether I like it or not?
      Raydor: That's right, Buster. Whether you like it or not.

    • Thorn: Guys, lighten up. Look, I used an undecipherable code to conceal their identities.
      Agent Howard: Did this undecipherable code involve altering the first letters of names and leaving everything else unchanged?
      Thorn: Wow. You guys really are good.

    • Rusty: I shouldn't be going to this school. I'm not even Catholic.
      Raydor: Just walk around with a guilty expression on your face. You'll fit right in.
