  • Quotes

    • Carter: So why do you think the killer starts now?
      Hale: It was the anniversary of my father's arrest, as good a day as any.
      Carter: It's also your birthday.
      Hale: So?
      Carter: So, how do you know this is about your father? How do you know it's not about you?

    • Carter: How did you know about this?
      Hale: Because this murder fits the exact pattern of a serial killer caught twenty years ago, on this date, after killing twelve people.
      Carter: Why do you know so much about this?
      Hale: Because that killer was my father.

    • Carter: I'm sorry but I refuse to believe he's really a dog. (Refers to Hale's bulldog)
      Hale: You're not alone, the neighbours won't go near him.
      Carter: I didn't figure you as a pet lover.
      Hale: I like to keep people guessing.

    • Robert Hale: I've always been troubled by the inequities in life, why bad things happen to good people?
      Jack Hale: You epitomise bad things happening to good people.
