  • The crimes are getting pretty easy to solve.

  • Boring and bad episode in which Jane manage to solve everything and the rest of the team seems to be bad at their job?

  • Quotes (16)

    • Luscom: My name is Theodore Luscom. I am a citizen of free California. The so-called federal and state authorities you work for are not legitimate. Therefore I do not recognize your right to arrest or question me.

      Lisbon: Oh, please.

      Luscom: You don't know it, but you people are just tools of the United Nations.

      Jane: Oh, yeah, we know it. They told us last June. Laid it all out.

      Luscom: Say what?

      Jane: There was a change in policy. Had a big secretive meeting, told us excactly who we're working for. That, my friend, was an eye opener, I tell you.

      Luscom: Are you mocking me?

      Jane: Oh, I'm serious. They told us the whole grand plan.

      Lisbon: Hush. Ignore him, Mr. Luscom.

    • Lisbon: So they let you out, then?

      Jane: Yes, uh, they did. Thank you very much.

      Lisbon: Nothing to do with me.

      Jane: So modest.

      Lisbon: Ah, right. Bosco's so in love with me, he'll do whatever I say?

      Jane: Yes. Yeah, it's a little far-fetched. He does love you. How could he not? But he's not the type to bend his principles over love. So, I figure it's something more concrete. You must have something on him.

    • (After Jane has escaped from prison.)

      Bosco: He's blown it, all right. We have an APB out, but maybe you can contact him, persuade him to come in quiet. Nobody wants him to get hurt.

      Lisbon: Contact him how? Persuade him how?

      Bosco: You two are close. He'll listen to you.

      Lisbon: That's very funny.

      Minelli: Why is it funny?

      Lisbon: It just is.

    • Rigsby: I feel like Jane knows about us.

      Van Pelt: No, he doesn't. How would he know?

      Rigsby: I know, we've been cool. It's just, it feels like he knows.

      Van Pelt: You're being paranoid.

      Rigsby: Just because I'm being paranoid, doesn't mean that Jane doesn't know.

    • Rigsby: Local PD has stomped all over the crime scene, so I don't think forensics will be any use.

      Lisbon: It's like they don't even watch TV. Every toddler knows this stuff.
