  • Ok show, but this episode was a total rip off of Twin Peaks.

    • Lisbon: Hey, can you believe he fell for that old cell-phone gag?

      Jane: Old cell-phone gag? I invented that right there and then. Rather brilliantly, I thought.

      Lisbon: Oh, please. I've seen that done a dozen times.

      Jane: What do you mean? Where?

      Lisbon: On TV.

      Jane: Oh, on TV. Well, anything can happen on TV. The question is, where have you seen that done in real life?

    • (Lisbon is on the phone with Jane and she has just realized that she's alone in a cabin with the killer)

      Lisbon: Okay. Good. Listen, tell Rigsby, Teresa needs his help. (Jane gets her message and looks worried.) Me? I'm at the Eagle Pine Lodge off Route 6.

      Jane: Okay. (Lisbon puts her phone in her pocket but doesn't hang up so Jane can still hear everything. She turns to face the killer and starts to reach for her weapon.)

      Lisbon: Kyle, let's stay calm and think this through.

      Kyle: Think what through?

      Lisbon: I really don't wanna shoot you, but I do have to take you into custody for killing Kara Palmer. What are we gonna do about that?

    • Lisbon: (Answering her phone) Where the hell are you?

      Jane: Nicole remembered everything. She can describe the suspect. We're looking for a tall, well-built man with brown hair and glasses. Mid-thirties.

      Lisbon: That's it? That describes half the men in California.

      Jane: Yeah, that's it. But at least we know it wasn't her that killed Kara. And it wasn't Rulon Farnes.

      Lisbon: Nice work. For this you illegally abducted her from the sheriff's custody?

      Jane: Yeah, I was gonna tell you about it, but seeing that it's illegal, best to keep you out of it so you have deniability.

      Lisbon: How considerate of you.

    • (Talking about a suspect)

      Jane: Oh, let him go.

      Lisbon: Let him go?

      Cho: What for?

      Rigsby: We had to fight to catch him.

      Jane: Oh, you're such policemen. Yes, let him go.

    • Rulon Farnes: So I gotta pay for a little human contact now and then. Shoot me. It's not my fault I look like this.

      Cho: It is actually. With a low-carb diet and exercise you could look very different.
