  • Quotes (6)

    • Jane: (to Lorelei)Why are you mad at me?I didn't force you to escape from prison.

    • Stiles: Look, if you must know, I've grown mildly accustomed to you, Patrick. You make me sit up and pay attention.
      Jane: I'm very glad you're amused by me.

    • Lorelei: (referring to Red John) God, you're just like him, you know that? Relentless manipulation.
      Jane: I am nothing like him.
      Lorelei: How would you know? I know. I only wonder why the two of you didn't become lifelong friends the moment you shook hands.

    • Bob Kirkland: (about Jane and Lorelei) If he's with her, he's in a lot of danger. You know him better than anybody, now if he did do this, where would he go?
      Lisbon: Any place I could possibly think of is where he wouldn't go.

    • Jane: What do you think of my request?
      Stiles: I don't think much of it, really, Patrick. Really, I don't.
      Jane: Meaning you can't accomplish it?
      Stiles: Any task can be accomplished, as long as it's broken down into manageable pieces.

      If it was the FBI that made the switch, then how and when did he find out she was in federal prison?

      i also think that RJ is kirkland it was a very good episode especially the last third of it it was a little slow at first, i am glad that we found another part of Lorelei life after all she also suffered from losing her sister in that awful way. she is some how like Jane.

    • LalaDrake Nov 19, 2012

      now Lorelei thinks RJ and Jane are alike, then RJ won't believe the story of Lorelei kidnapping Jane... If only we can see how it will go between Lorelei and Roy; I'm still convinced that Kirkland is RJ though

    • moneill09 Nov 19, 2012

      Jane did not meet Kirkland until the end of the episode.

    • LalaDrake Nov 19, 2012

      he meet him before... he shook his hand and told Jane that he doesn't know him but he knows him very well

    • crystakke Nov 19, 2012

      I thought Lorelei had already escaped from prison. How come she was back in prison? Was the original escape just a "Jane plot" to make her lost to the FBI? Can someone clear this up?

      I must have missed it too... she was lost from the FBI custody, then back in a Federal Prison... maybe after that officer confessed to Jane he had helped her

    • moneill09 Nov 19, 2012

      It was the FBI that made the switch and bundled her off to a federal prison so the CBI and Jane couldn't see her.
