Grace Van Pelt
Director Bertram: So that's option two, me? I'm your suspect?
Jane: Well I was just wondering why you didn't tell us this guy was such a sleezebag and that you are up to your neck in his grubby business.
Hightower: That's enough.
Director Bertram: Yes, it is. I don't have time for this. You shall just have to trust in my innocence, Mr. Jane.
Jane: I'm not good at trust.
Lisbon: (About a reporter) What did you tell her?
Jane: I was complimenting her on her jacket. It's such a vivid colour.
Jane: You're gonna call me a liar?
Lisbon: Oh, I hate you. I do.
Lisbon: A million dollars for the safe return of Dublin- that kinda sounds like a kidnapping, doesn't it?
Jane: Doesn't mean it's a kidnapping. Doesn't mean he's not dead.
Lisbon: Is this a serious theory or is this your revenge? (Jane shrugs.)
(After a meeting with Bertram and Hightower)
Lisbon: What the hell was that? Are you insane? And where the hell did you come up with that supid-ass diamond story?
Jane: I don't know what came over me. I see that man, I get an immediate urge to wind him up.
Lisbon: He's the director.
Jane: I'm sorry. He amuses me.
Lisbon: I'm glad he entertains you, because he's gonna fire you now probably.
Jane: No. You guys need me too much.
Jane: Anybody that gets close to me, bad things happen to them.
Lisbon: A, that's not true, and B, even if it were, I'm a cop. It's our job to be in harm's way.
Jane: You're not listening to me.
Lisbon: We're family. What you're doing is a kind of betrayal.
Lisbon: A surrender. A defeat. You're letting Red John win.
Mrs. Dublin: Why, Kimball? Why am I being punished? I'm a good person.
Cho: Yes, ma'am.
Mrs. Dublin: Stop calling me ma'am. I'm not your grandmother. How old do you think I am anyway?
Cho: 48, 49. (she starts to sob)
Lisbon: Where is Mrs. Dublin now?
Cho: She cries a lot. Then she has to freshen her makeup, then she cries again. Sort of a cycle.
Lisbon: A trap for who?
Lisbon: Just tell me.
Lisbon: You know what? Screw you. You crossed a line already and now you're playing guessing games with me?
Jane: No, it's just that I'm not sure myself. I have a plan, though.
Lisbon: Oh, sheepdip. You are still trying to punish me for lying to you. Well you know what? I'm sorry. Sorry. You wanted off this case. You're off. You can take a nap in your thinking room. We'll solve this case without you, the right way. With good, solid detective work.
(Lisbon walks away and leaves Jane alone)
Jane: So, I take it you don't want to hear my plan? (imitates Lisbon) "No, I don't want to hear your plan. Sheepdip your plan."
Lisbon: Why did you say he was dead?
Jane: Because he is. He's dead and it's not a kidnapping.
Lisbon: Give me a reason.
Jane: I'll bet you all the tea in China.
Lisbon: Ugh. That is not a reason.
Lisbon: I can tell when you're lying now.
Jane: No, you can't tell.
Lisbon: I can, too.
Jane: That's nonsense. You're lying. Liar, liar, pants on fire.
Lisbon: I'm not lying.
Jane: You are.
Lisbon: How do you think the director is going to feel when he finds out you fooled him into talking complete garbage on TV?
Jane: It's not garbage, and he'll be very angry or very happy, depending on whether I'm right or wrong.
Lisbon: Right about what? There is no diamond-- oh. I see. A trap. Very clever.
Director Bertram: What do you mean you won't be working on this one?
Jane: Well, statehouse lobbyist abductions...it's really not my cup of tea.
Director Bertram: Well that's-- that's kind of unprofessional, don't you think?
Jane: I guess, but I'm not actually a professional.
Jane: Really, I'm impressed. You played me like a fish and you lied to me.
Lisbon: I kind of did, didn't I? Sorry.
Jane: No, I'm glad to see you're finally learning a few things. Of course, uh, now I shall have my revenge.
Lisbon: What do you mean?! (Jane laughs)
Jane: New boss? I thought Hightower was boss.
Lisbon: The boss of Hightower. The director of the entire division. I told you about him last week. Your memory's going.
Jane: My memory is a mighty fortress, Lisbon, from which no fact ever escapes once committed. Now, when you tell me boring things, I set them free immediately. Saves overcrowding.
