Dr. Gillian Foster
Dr. Cal Lightman
Hot Truck Guy
Cal: You know, generally it's not a good idea to call your boss an idiot.
Ria: I didn't say you were an idi...
Cal: But your buccinator did.
Ria: That's not...
Cal: (pointing at her face) Oh, that's a pretty impressive combination of contempt and disgust.
Loker: You're a natural. The few naturals Lightman's come across have one thing in common. No college degree. You haven't been asked to focus on verbal skills, so you focus on body language.
Torres: You're saying I can't learn the science?
Loker: I'm saying you didn't have to. That's got to be irritating for a guy who's spent two decades trying to see what you were born seeing.
Cal: You know when you don't know the science, you don't see the whole picture. People can get hurt.
Ria: What was that? What happened?
Ria: Shame, when you said people get hurt you showed shame.
Cal: I don't know what you're talking about.
Ria: You're lying.
Cal: Get used to it.
Lightman: So now you're starting on me?
(Gillian glares at Lightman)
Lightman: Don't say something you'll regret and I saw that.
(Ria hands Lightman a file)
Lightman: This is classified, how'd you get it?
Gillian: Same way you would have.
Ria: You drugged her so she could lie?
Cal: Never let the facts get in the way of the truth.
Rebecca: The truth isn't good enough for these people.
Cal: Who said anything about the truth?
Eli: (to Gillian) No, no, you don't want the muffins here. They're terrible. They taste like sofa cushions with the moldy nuts your grandmother used to keep in a little jar.
Cal: (to Ria) Oh look, now you're embarrassed. Well you have every reason to be. You did get it wrong didn't you? Sergeant Scott didn't rape Sheila Lake.
Cal: She's the one making snide remarks. Look at her face.
Ria: How do people work here?
Gillian: Chicken dumpling?
Cal: Oh, no, never eat meat I can't see.
Eli: Oh. Championship ring. Sweet. Must have cost a fortune online.
Taft: Actually, I earned it.
Eli: Why is it guys named White are always black and guys named Black are always white?
Gillian: Am I going to be sorry You're here?
Eli: Barry White. Jack Black.
Cal: You been to the bathroom today?
Fast Food Man: Er, no. (He touches his ear.)
Cal: Oh great. Anyone else want a side of faeces?
Cal: You know, I once had actors play out the testimony from a rape case in front of thirty federal judges. You know the biggest predictor of whether they believed the man or the woman? The gender of the judge.
Ria: You think I'm saying he's guilty because I'm a woman?
Cal: Me, Darwin, Two thousand years of evolutionary biology.
Ria: You really think a woman would lie about rape?
Cal: Unpleasant truth, human mortality, moustache on a woman. Three things we'd all prefer to ignore.
Cal: What do you see?
Gillian: I see a skeptical, emotionally distant scientist obsessing over facial twitches.
(Cal hands Tom Whitmore a very large ostrich egg.)
Tom: What the hell is this?
Cal: It's a lie detector. West Africans used them first. When you're on trial, you held the egg in your hands and if it broke, it's a sign of anxiety and you were found guilty.
