    • Lisbon: Rigs, you got something on your-- is that spit up?
      Rigsby: (looks at his shoulder) Mm. Yeah. It's from this morning. I was feeding him, and he was looking up at me with those big adorable eyes... and then he barfed.
      Lisbon: Kids, huh?
      Rigsby: Yeah. You know what? He's the best thing that ever happened to me.

    • Jane: Well, Greg seems very nice.
      Lisbon: I am not discussing it with you.
      Jane: Nice, solid, dependable. I can see why you dumped him.
      Lisbon: I mean it, Jane.
      Jane: All right.
      Lisbon: Seriously.
      Jane: All right.
      Lisbon: (pause) I didn't dump him. We both decided to take a break.
      Jane: Mm. The old "let's take a break".

    • Lisbon: So, why didn't you let me in on your brilliant plan?
      Jane: Oh, you were very busy with Greg.
      Lisbon: I am never too busy to solve a murder.
      Jane: Well, you seemed to be very busy with Greg.

    • Jane: Don't be wistful, Lisbon. Greg was never the right man for you.
      Lisbon: I'm not wistful, and no, he wasn't.
      Jane: You're far too intense and particular for a man like that.
      Lisbon: Excuse me? Intense and particular? What is that supposed to mean?
      Jane: Well, they're good things.
      Lisbon: In what ways am I intense and particular?
      Jane: Oh, please.
      Lisbon: Tell me.
      Jane: Well, what ever happened to that guy from narcotics?
      Lisbon: Jeff?
      Jane: Jeff.
      Lisbon: Oh, he bit his nails.
      Jane: See, that's particular.
      Lisbon: That is not being particular, it's a disgusting habit!
      Jane: There's intense.

    • Greg: You're strong now, you know that? You didn't used to be so strong. I bet you're really good at your job.
      Lisbon: Yeah. Yeah, I'm okay, I think.
      Greg: You seem happy.
      Lisbon: I am, yeah. I am.
      Greg: I'm glad we met again. You and me, you know.
