    • (Jane's meeting with Bosco)

      Jane: Well, I'm not gonna lie. I'm not happy I'm off the Red John case. You might be right. Here's the thing Sam, if I may. I know this case. I can be a very good resource for you if we could just come to some kind of understanding.

      Bosco: You want me to keep you up-to-date on the case?

      Jane: Yeah... sure.

      Bosco: Tell you about fresh leads and so?

      Jane: Yeah, let's just keep an open line of communication.

      Bosco: Let me communicate this to you. You're a party entertainer. A clown. Fresh leads? I wouldn't tell you where the bathroom is if your ass was on fire.

      Jane: (laughs)

      Bosco: Do we have a good understanding now?

      Jane: I understand you. It may take you some time to understand me.

      Bosco: You're filled with equal parts of self-loathing and self-love. You're addicted to control, you're terrified of confinement. Your wife wanted you to quit psychic trade. She begged you to stop. But you were making too much money, you were having too much fun, you can still hear her pleading with you. How am I doing?

      Jane: You read the interviews in my case file. You can read. Very impressive.

      Bosco: Look, Patrick. I'm sorry for being so blunt with you. You're not a detective. You're a victim. (leaves)
