  • Jane excels once more, not hesitating even to lure children into his mental confusion traps, in order to dig out the truth. And of course, he pulls everything off in impeccable style. Gotta love him!

    • Marshall Winston: CBI! CBI! Like that's supposed to mean something!

      Cho: Yeah, we do need better brand awareness.

    • Rigsby: I hate the woods.

      Cho: Would you rather be playing desk jockey with Van Pelt right now?

      Rigsby: Who sends their kids to a place like this? It's not cheap either.

      Cho: A little deprivation and discipline is good for the soul.

      Rigsby: Yeah, but this is like a juvie prison camp.

      Cho: No. This is like spring break in Cancun compared to juvie.

      Rigsby: Wait, you were in juvenile hall? Seriously?

      Cho: Yeah, didn't you read my file?

      Rigsby: No. Wait, did you read mine?

      Cho: Of course.

    • Lisbon: I hope you got something useful for all the trouble you caused.

      Jane: Yes, I did. The story of the mad axeman Zachariah, who lives in these here woods.

      Lisbon: Ah, Z.

      Jane: Yes, Z. I would have gotten more, but you came back too quickly.

      Lisbon: Reality check. I'm your supervising agent. I'm not your decoy.

    • Chief Brody: Do you have any actual facts?

      Jane: Well, it's an actual fact that you dislike Mr. MacLean here because he's a tree-hugging, liberal wacko who's probably running some kind of a cult. And he dislikes you because you're a small-minded, provincial hayseed. Not that you are necessarily. That's just what he thinks.

    • (One of the students has gone missing)

      Lisbon: We should start looking in the woods around the school.

      Jane: Oh, that sounds horribly tedious. Shout if you need me.

      Lisbon: Go ahead, relax. Enjoy yourself. God forbid you should do anything tedious.

    Allusions (1)

    • On Jane's first visit to principal Asher MacLean's office, he stops at a picture of MacLean in hunting attire and shouldering a hunting bow. Jane says, "You know, you look like Burt Reynolds in this shot." The allusion refers to the 1972 film Deliverance starring Burt Reynolds as a businessman who goes on a canoe trip with three friends. In the film, Reynolds' character Lewis sported a similar hunting bow and was an experienced outdoorsman, as was MacLean.
