    • Captain Lewis: You haven't called Dr. Kohl. Raines: Dan, it's been one day. I haven't called my, uh, mother in weeks. You don't hear her complaining. Captain Lewis: Your mother's dead. Raines: That explains it.

    • Raines: Who is Dr. Samantha Kohl? Captain Lewis: She's a therapist. Raines: Oh yeah, says it right here on the card: 'Therapist'. I... I thought it was 'The Rapist' which would be such a strange thing to put on a card.

    • Boyer: Why don't you like me? Raines: Oh for Heavens sakes! Boyer: It's because I told the Captain that I saw you talking to yourself on the Boudreau case isnt it? Raines: I-I disliked you way before that. Boyer: Did you ever stop to think that maybe I had a good reason to tell the Captain? Raines: What the hell would that be? Boyer: You've always been something of a whack job detective but you always had Charlie to help cinch the restraints and keep you from swallowing your tongue. Now, lets put it this way, I see people out on the street everyday talking to themselves. The one big difference between them and you they dont have a license to carry a firearm,

    • Raines: Boyer do... do you have a Myspace page? Boyer: No. Not yet. Raines: Great. So... so when you get one, may I suggest that under likes and dislikes you put that you like to annoy the living snot out of people when they're trying to work and maybe you wanna add a link to www.whatingodsnameiswrongwithme.com.

    • Coyote: Who cleans your house? Raines: Nobody. It's an issue with the landlord.
