  • Lie to me Korean Style

    This episode has just as much to with family as it does with politics. While protecting the South Korean Ambassador at his son's wedding, his son is shot. Cal and his team go through everyone there and cannot find a suspect. Initially Cal thinks it is may the the Ambassador's body guard, who is actually his son as well. The body guard has no respect for the son that is getting married. It all starts to come together when they are watching the tape of the wedding and the bride makes a motion when saying her name that indicates it is not her real name. Apparently she had gotten out of a bad marriage several years before, moved and changed her name. As luck would have it, one of cameramen was here ex-husband and was stalking her. He smuggled a gun into the wedding and shot the groom. The bride thought that after all of this came out the Ambassador would disown her be he took her to see her groom at the hospital. One very important thing that happened in the end is that the Ambassador gave his bodyguard (his son) a deep bow of respect; something he had never done in the past.moreless
  • Slightly dull episode.

    This was not a very enthralling episode but it was basically okay. The ending was rather far fetched and I could not really believe that the bride did not know what was going on or that she did not recognise the gunman at the reception. There were too few of those brilliant Cal moments that I had enjoyed in previous episodes. Eli had a couple of nice moments but Gillian and Ria were not very interesting. I hope that Lie to Me picks up a bit next episode or it is in great danger of Fox cancelling it before it even leaves the starting blocks.moreless
  • It was okay.

    I love the show, but I found this episode lacking somehow and I honestly can't put my finger on it. I found the concept of determining a lie in another culture really interesting. As they discussed in the episode every culture has differing mannerisms and jestures and figuring out the truth was the challenge. The complexity of the episode I think was a little bit too all over the place. To a degree I think it lack some focus. I'm hoping Agent Durpee makes a reappearance. Big fan of Sean P. and I think after walking a few episodes, I'm picking up on some lies of her own from Mrs. Foster. I don't believe she's as in the dark about the state of her marriage and she's leading people to believe. She is an expert on lying.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: At the beginning of the episode they provide as an example, the face of someone about to do violence, a Basque separatist about to enter a bus with 20 pounds of explosives strapped to his chest. Basque separatists do not have and never have had suicide squads. That scenario is unrealistic.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Foster: Who are you calling?
      Lightman: CIA, see what they got on the ambassador.
      Foster: Well, you know that's going to be classified. Who's your contact?
      Lightman: Laura.
      Foster: Laura who?
      Lightman: Laura of the CIA.

    • (Talking about the wedding cake)
      Foster: I could dive into that cake fully clothed.
      Lightman: There's an image.

    • Foster: Only you would tell somebody to cancel a wedding ten minutes before it starts.
      Lightman: Well, it was just a suggestion.
      Foster: Do you realize how much today means to the families?
      Lightman: No, fortunately.

    • (Talking about Foster)
      Torres: Her husband's not going to Reston.
      Lightman: Well, that's none of your business.
      Torres: You saw that he lied to her, right? Does she really not see it?
      Lightman: Hey, that's none of your business.

    • Cal: Here's a question you don't usually hear at a wedding. Why is the Best Man giving the Groom the finger?

    • Videographer: Any of this footage shows up on the Net, I'm going to rip your head off and stuff it down your throat.
      Eli: No hesitation. Now you're telling the truth.

    • Eli: You know, my father always used to say that there are four rules for getting married. You need a woman who loves you unconditionally, a woman who always challenges you, a woman who you always want to make love to and, most important of all, you have to make sure that none of these women ever meet.

    • Gillian: I love weddings. Such a beautiful celebration of love and hope. Plus there's cake.
      Cal: Bride's pretending she's a virgin. The groom's pretending he's found "The One". And the in-laws pretend they like each other. It's Christmas for liars.

    • Cal: You know it's going to be pretty hard to spot your guy. I mean, most weddings champagne and resentment flow together, right?
      Paul: Not a wedding fan, huh?
      Cal: No. Don't trust them. Lead to marriage.
