    • (Talking about Sophie Miller.)

      Lisbon: What if we take this case and it turns out she's guilty?

      Jane: She didn't do it.

      Lisbon: How do you know?

      Jane: Because she told me she didn't. She wouldn't lie to me.

      Lisbon: Why not?

      Jane: Because she wouldn't.

      Lisbon: Suppose she did.

      Jane: Well, if shes is guilty, then we need to catch her and punish her, but she's not.

      Lisbon: Jane, I know I said I wouldn't ask, but I'm asking. Who is this woman? What's the connection?

      Jane: You don't wanna know.

    • Jane: Yeah, I went through a rough patch. Did a little time in a hospital. Sophie helped me through that time.

      Lisbon: It's not on your record.

      Jane: No. Believe me,'s not easy to do. I know there's nothing shameful about having a breakdown, but I gotta confess, I am ashamed of it.

      Lisbon: Thank you for being so honest with me.

      Jane: Sorry I kept it from you.

    • Lisbon: Seriously, I've stuck my stupid neck out for you for the umpteenth time. I think I deserve the truth. Why is Sophie Miller so important to you?

      Jane: She was my doctor.

      Lisbon: She's a psychiatrist.

      Jane: Yes. She was my psychiatrist.

      Lisbon: But you hate psychiatrists. So you always say.

      Jane: She was a good psychiatrist.

      Lisbon: She must have been, if she managed to keep you in the room.

      Jane: It was a locked room.

      Lisbon: (pauses) Oh.

    • Jane: You don't like the way I drive, you despise it.

      Lisbon: You drive way too fast.

      Jane: I drive just fast enough. You hate not being the one in control and yet you're willing to overcome your irrational fears to cheer me up. That's a beautiful thing, Lisbon. Thank you, I'd love to drive.

      Lisbon: Never mind.

    • Lisbon: Aw. Jane kissed a girl.

      Jane: What? Yeah on the cheek.

      Lisbon: Still counts.

    • Lisbon: We have agents at your house right now with a search warrant.

      Chancellor Stern: Inadmissible.

      Lisbon: Yes. I'd hate to be a State's Attorney. Jane's always pulling crap like this on them but they always win.

    • Jane: Let's keep it casual to start with Sophie. Let her relax. If she gets her guard up, we'll get nothing from her.

      Lisbon: You're very combative all of a sudden.

      Jane: Yeah, if she is guilty, she lied to me and I believed it. She fooled me.

      Lisbon: The ultimate sin.

      Jane: Yes it is.

    • Jane: The widow's not a true blonde. She's naturally dark.

      Lisbon: And what?

      Jane: And her hair's colored and styled to look like Sophie, only younger. She was a brunette when I knew her.

      Lisbon: So Nelson was a control freak like you said.

      Jane: A control freak with a serious thing for getting his women to dye their hair blonde.

      Lisbon: Kerry Sheenan has roots.

      Jane: Yes, she does.

      Lisbon: Sheenan and Alex Nelson were having an affair.

      Jane: Bravo!

    • Cho: How did you kill Nelson?

      Howie: Poison.

      Cho: What kind of poison did you use?

      Howie: Wouldn't you like to know.

      Cho: I do know, I'm wondering if you do.

      Howie: Do you realize that the real rulers of this planet are insects?

    • Van Pelt: (talking about Howie) He's crazy.

      Rigsby: Yeah, crazy don't make him innocent. Crazy is what makes people kill other people.

    • Stutzer: You are skeptical. Nevertheless, it's true we are plumbing the depths of the human soul. Do you know what's down there? Do you know what your soul is made of?

      Jane: Frogs and snails and puppy dogs' tails?

      Stutzer: Ah. Humor. Good.

    • Jane: Hey, thanks for not telling I made you take the case. Lisbon? Hello?

      Lisbon: Tell me the truth.

      Jane: Truth. Darth Vader? Luke's father.

    • Patrick: (Sitting in Dr. Stutzer's office) Frogs and snails or puppy dogs' tails.

      This is a line from the popular nursery rhyme What Are Little Boys Made Of?. This rhyme is from a larger work attributed to an English poet named Robert Southey (1774-1843) entitled What Folks Are Made Of, published around 1820 by Burton Stevenson.

    • Patrick: Truth. Darth Vader? Luke's father.

      Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker are characters from the Star Wars universe. The revelation that Darth Vader was Luke's father was made in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
