    • Marshall Winston: CBI! CBI! Like that's supposed to mean something!

      Cho: Yeah, we do need better brand awareness.

    • Rigsby: I hate the woods.

      Cho: Would you rather be playing desk jockey with Van Pelt right now?

      Rigsby: Who sends their kids to a place like this? It's not cheap either.

      Cho: A little deprivation and discipline is good for the soul.

      Rigsby: Yeah, but this is like a juvie prison camp.

      Cho: No. This is like spring break in Cancun compared to juvie.

      Rigsby: Wait, you were in juvenile hall? Seriously?

      Cho: Yeah, didn't you read my file?

      Rigsby: No. Wait, did you read mine?

      Cho: Of course.

    • Lisbon: I hope you got something useful for all the trouble you caused.

      Jane: Yes, I did. The story of the mad axeman Zachariah, who lives in these here woods.

      Lisbon: Ah, Z.

      Jane: Yes, Z. I would have gotten more, but you came back too quickly.

      Lisbon: Reality check. I'm your supervising agent. I'm not your decoy.

    • Chief Brody: Do you have any actual facts?

      Jane: Well, it's an actual fact that you dislike Mr. MacLean here because he's a tree-hugging, liberal wacko who's probably running some kind of a cult. And he dislikes you because you're a small-minded, provincial hayseed. Not that you are necessarily. That's just what he thinks.

    • (One of the students has gone missing)

      Lisbon: We should start looking in the woods around the school.

      Jane: Oh, that sounds horribly tedious. Shout if you need me.

      Lisbon: Go ahead, relax. Enjoy yourself. God forbid you should do anything tedious.

    • Jane: Who's Zachariah?

      Mr. Maclean: Who?

      Jane: Zachariah?

      Mr. Maclean: Never heard of him. Who is he?

      Jane: Liar.

      Mr. Maclean: Liar?

      Jane: Pants on fire. They're ablaze.

      Mr. Maclean: I wanna cooperate with you people, but this man is trying to...I don't know what he's trying to do, but I resent it.

    • Patrick Jane: Excuse me, what kind of tree is this?

      Chief Elaine Brody: Couldn't say.

      Patrick Jane: Smells good. So you're not a local?

      Chief Elaine Brody: Born five miles down the road, just don't give a crap about trees.

    • Asher MacLean: I think you might show a little more respect.

      Patrick Jane: Respect for...?

      Chief Elaine Brody: There's a dead child here.

      Patrick Jane: Yes, yes, he's dead. He doesn't care how I talk to you.

  • Allusions

    • On Jane's first visit to principal Asher MacLean's office, he stops at a picture of MacLean in hunting attire and shouldering a hunting bow. Jane says, "You know, you look like Burt Reynolds in this shot."

      The allusion refers to the 1972 film Deliverance starring Burt Reynolds as a businessman who goes on a canoe trip with three friends. In the film, Reynolds' character Lewis sported a similar hunting bow and was an experienced outdoorsman, as was MacLean.
