    • Lisbon: LaRoche is looking for you.
      Jane: Well, tell him I wish him luck.

    • LaRoche: You read the evidence report.
      Jane: Oh, more like skimmed it. You know those things are not exactly summer reading, but I get paid to consult, so skim I do.

    • Lisbon: I'm sorry. Is there a problem?

      LaRoche: Yes. Jane is the lead suspect in my investigation and I can't find him.

      Lisbon: Jane's your lead suspect.

      LaRoche: You smile. You think he's not capable of murder?

      Lisbon: He's capable. I'm smiling because it's an absurd idea, Jane killing Johnson. He caught him. He put him in that cell.

      LaRoche: He was the last person to see him alive in that cell.

      Lisbon: And I was next to last.

    • LaRoche: So you're working undercover?

      Jane: Which you just blew for me. Thank you very much.

      LaRoche: Well, I doubt that. Up to the moment you left, you had them transfixed. What's that like... such power over people?

      Jane: You tell me. I expect this Robocop routine of yours normally works quite effectively?

      LaRoche: Normally. But you seem immune, so I may have to step up my efforts.

    • LaRoche: Agent Lisbon states that before Todd Johnson was set on fire, he indicated that he had a secret he wanted to tell you, and you alone.

      Jane: We all have secrets. Most of them are quite unremarkable once revealed. What's your secret, Mr. Laroosh?

      LaRoche: LaRoche.

      Jane: Pardon me.

      LaRoche: I have no secrets.
