    Another very strong episode of Rizzoli and Isles tonight, a show that has really stepped up its game in season two.

    The baseball backdrop was a good idea for the show since we are in the middle of the pennant race, and they gave us an intriguing little murder mystery that the viewer was able to follow along with. The killer was obvious, but they also threw in a little bit of "ripped from headlines" story with the McCourts and the Los Angeles Dodgers, with the family battling over ownership as well.

    The banter was a little sub-par tonight, but I got a few chuckles, notably after Rizzoli mocked the "I wouldn't mind being interrogated by you," line. But it was a good storyline and really that's all you could ask for.moreless

    • Maura Isles: Well, excuse me. (about misdiagnosing Jane's dog) I don't treat mixed breeds or four-legged creatures or anything else ...
      Jane Rizzoli: That's alive. Yeah, I forgot.

    • Jane Rizzoli: Visiting means dropping by and then leaving. When's he leaving?
      Maura Isles: Jane, he's gonna be in violation of his probation without a permanent address.
      Jane Rizzoli: So the visit is permanent.
      Maura Isles: Temporarily.
      Jane Rizzoli: The only thing that Tommy does temporarily is stay out of trouble.
      Maura Isles: Jane, I know you. You're conflicted, you want to help him, but you're afraid that anything you do will be interpreted as a sign of approval.
      Jane Rizzoli: My little brother is a screw-up, Maura, a completely lovable screw-up felon.

    • (Jane Rizzoli takes off her shoes which she borrowed from Maura Isles along with the dress.)

      Jane Rizzoli: These suck. Your dress is about as comfortable as a straitjacket.

      Maura Isles: And your suit is a real booty call magnet. I got hit on twice, by women.
