  • Quotes

    • Trevor: You can't just come barging in here without a warrant!
      Flack: (Pulls an evelope out of his jacket) Oh, look what I got!

    • Mac: You know I got your back.
      Hawkes: I've got yours.

    • Danny: That puts the victim in your apartment.
      Trevor: So?
      Flack: That would mean you lied. (Trevor looks like he's about to retort. Flack lifts a hand up in a stop position, slightly off screen slightly on.) AH. We'll take a ride downtown to talk about this.
      (Trevor's real doll is carted away. Trevor and Danny watch, Danny pats his arm and steers him.)
      Danny: Ya see, that's why boys shouldn't play with dolls.

    • Flack: (nods to silicone doll, smirking) Hey girl. What's your sign?

    • (About the silicone doll).
      Lindsay: We are gonna need to take her and do a few tests.
      Mr. Gorem: Tests? Where?
      Lindsay: At our Lab
      Mr. Gorem: Can I at least come with her? She's very fragile.
      Lindsay: Don't worry. We'll be gentle.

    • (About the silicone doll).
      Adam: I've never seen one in my life before, it's so realistic. Can I touch her?
      Stella: Adam!

    • Stella: In a city of 12 million, and people need mannequins to... keep them company. I mean, what does that say about what we are as a species?

    • Mac: What, is the carnival in town?
      Flack: Nah, it's a renegade street party. Ever since the city put restrictions on public gatherings, they've been popping up all over town.

    • (About Sinclair's relationship with the victim, Ann Steele).
      Sinclair: Why don't you stick to the science on this, Mac? I'll take care of the politics.
      Mac: Why do I get the feeling you know more than you're telling me?
      Sinclair: Because you're a cop. Just remember I'm your boss.

    • Sinclair: For every NYPD salary we no longer pay, we can hire three new civilians. You do the math, detective. The phrase is: bottom line. Three people for one.
      Mac: If lab security is vulnerable, every piece of evidence we process can be called into question. What's the bottom line on that?
      Sinclair: I understand your frustration. I get orders from the top, just like you. I don't have to like them, I just have to make them happen.

    • (Flack and Lindsay walk down the street; Flack is pushing a life sized silicone doll on a package cart)
      Lindsay: Wow. Okay. How weird was that? There's no way that one of these could replace a real woman!
      Flack: Oh I don't know, Linds. They're not bad looking. Think of all the money a guy could save on dinner.
      Lindsay: (pauses) A doll?!? I mean I could understand if you dumped me for a real woman but a piece of plastic? What does she have that I don't have? Huh?
      Flack: (to onlookers from outdoor cafe) Forgive my wife. She's not well. (To Lindsay) I'm gonna get you for that Monroe. Big time.

    • Danny: We're here for your girlfriend.
      Trevor Jones: What girlfriend?
      Danny: The rubber one.
      Flack: Danny! Silicone.
      Danny: Oh yeah, right. Silicone.

  • Allusions

    • The final scene depicting the flash drive being rolled into the NYPD's off-site evidence storage closely resembles the closing moments of Raiders of the Lost Ark (when the crate containing the Ark of the Covenant is wheeled into a similarly huge and box-filled government warehouse). Coincidentally, the episode following this one has an Indiana Jones theme.

    • The title of this episode Sex, Lies and Silicone refers to the 1989 movie Sex, Lies and Videotape starring James Spader and Andie MacDowell.
