  • Quotes (14)

    • Director Bertram: So that's option two, me? I'm your suspect?

      Jane: Well I was just wondering why you didn't tell us this guy was such a sleezebag and that you are up to your neck in his grubby business.

      Hightower: That's enough.

      Director Bertram: Yes, it is. I don't have time for this. You shall just have to trust in my innocence, Mr. Jane.

      Jane: I'm not good at trust.

    • Lisbon: (About a reporter) What did you tell her?

      Jane: I was complimenting her on her jacket. It's such a vivid colour.

      Lisbon: Liar.

      Jane: You're gonna call me a liar?

      Lisbon: Oh, I hate you. I do.

    • Lisbon: A million dollars for the safe return of Dublin- that kinda sounds like a kidnapping, doesn't it?

      Jane: Doesn't mean it's a kidnapping. Doesn't mean he's not dead.

      Lisbon: Is this a serious theory or is this your revenge? (Jane shrugs.)

    • (After a meeting with Bertram and Hightower)

      Lisbon: What the hell was that? Are you insane? And where the hell did you come up with that supid-ass diamond story?

      Jane: I don't know what came over me. I see that man, I get an immediate urge to wind him up.

      Lisbon: He's the director.

      Jane: I'm sorry. He amuses me.

      Lisbon: I'm glad he entertains you, because he's gonna fire you now probably.

      Jane: No. You guys need me too much.

    • Jane: Anybody that gets close to me, bad things happen to them.

      Lisbon: A, that's not true, and B, even if it were, I'm a cop. It's our job to be in harm's way.

      Jane: You're not listening to me.

      Lisbon: We're family. What you're doing is a kind of betrayal.

      Jane: Oh.

      Lisbon: A surrender. A defeat. You're letting Red John win.
