    • Sheila: What is all this about? And why are the federal guys so weird and creepy?
      Jane: They are? How are they weird and creepy?
      Sheila: Like they're not what they seem. Like one day they might pull their faces off, and there'd be alien lizards underneath, you know?
      Jane: I know. Not impossible, but very unlikely.

    • LaRoche: I don't know about this.
      Jane: Oh, trust me. You'll have fun.
      LaRoche: "Trust me. You'll have fun." Was there ever a more suspicious phase?

    • Lisbon: You need to try and start following the rules for a while. And if you must break the rules, break them on your own time.
      Jane: When am I not on my own time?
