  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Olivia: If you can't trust the people you're dealing with, what then?
      Bolivia: You know, maybe I'm not the problem. Maybe it's you. Maybe you are just incapable of trust.
      Olivia: Interesting. Coming from the person who kidnapped me and stole my life.
      Bolivia: You know, being you and living your life only made me more homesick for my universe.

    • Walter: The thing about playing Devil's advocate, my dear, is that your client is the Devil himself.

    • Walter: If you really want a story, you should look under the dome. I'm growing an ear.

    • Lincoln: I'm coming with you.
      Olivia: You keep going like this and you're gonna talk yourself out of the bureau.
      Lincoln: I was at the first crime scene. Maybe I saw something that I haven't told you yet. Maybe that's why I came here.
      Olivia: Okay, come. You can get fired later.

    • Walter: I need to check her anus. Have that large lady there help you lift here.
      Astrid: Umm. I'm going to, uh... I'm going to need to check her anus.
      CD Tech: Okay...

    • Walter: And yet, interestingly, they do all suffer from a variety of health problems. Gout, hair loss, kidney diseases. Which in themselves have something in common. I'm not wearing pants.
      Astrid: I'm on it.

    • Astrid: Listen to this. One of the victims' credit cards just registered a charge. Dead people do not use their credit cards.
      Walter: Of course they do. Certainly.

    • Lincoln: (about Walter) Is he all right?
      Olivia: Well, that depends on your definition of all right. He's functional. Except when he's not. But he is often quite brilliant. He just never had anything to tether him to the world.
