      Arastoo: You want me to quit?
      Cam: And live with that guilt? Oh, no, thanks.

      Sweets: I'm not defensive.
      Brennan: It's natural. We understand.
      Sweets: Can we please just talk about the case?
      Brennan: Okay, what Sweets just did there that is called deflecting.
      Sweets: I'm not deflecting, either.

      Brennan: (laughs) I enjoy psychology.

    • Angela: You, uh … you didn't tell me you were seeing someone.

      Cam: That would be talking about it.

      Angela: You're no fun.
      Cam: That's not what he says.
      Angela: (smirks) Nice.
