  • Quotes

    • Cho: Hey, how ya doin'? You're under arrest for the attempted murder of... everybody.

    • Lisbon: Are you close to us?
      Jane: Well, that depends. Are you still on crowd patrol?
      Lisbon: No. We got a homicide now.
      Jane: Then I'm close.

    • Wainwright: You set me up today. You knew I would be the stressor that pushed Tibbs over the edge.
      Jane: Well, one can never really know these things. To be honest, I was rooting for you.
      Wainwright: Really?
      Jane: Yes, I find your youthful brand of earnestness quite refreshing.

    • Lisbon: I wonder if our new boss is in a little over his head.
      Jane: Really? I don't.
      Lisbon: Tibbs could kill him.
      Jane: Or he could save Tibbs.

    • Wainwright: Well, the trouble is, I mean, even if you are right, we can't arrest an offender before he's offended.
      Jane: It's better than after, don't you think?

    • Lisbon: You think this murder is a decoy?
      Jane: No clue, but there's a suspicious-looking man on "J" Street and 56th, haunted eyes, nervous energy, an overcoat on a hot day.
      Lisbon: That's thin, even for you.
      Jane: Yeah, you're probably right. It's only the mayor's life at stake. Forget I spoke.

    • Wainwright: You two want me to believe that a man who confessed to a murder did nothing, and a man who did nothing is a murderer?
      Jane: You may even be smarter than you look.

    • Lisbon: I think that his confession was a cry for help. Willie didn't hurt anyone.
      Wainwright: How do you know that?
      Lisbon: Well, you kind of have to hear him play the saxophone.
      Jane : I love it, Lisbon. The beautiful soul defense.

    • Wainwright: Glibness and superficial charm? Check.
      Jane: You flatter me.
      Wainwright: Grandiose sense of self-worth? You betcha. Cunning and manipulative, poor behavioral controls, failure to accept responsibility for own actions. So, I, uh, I cross-referenced all of my observations with your history as a thief and a con artist, and congratulations, Jane. According to the score, you are a clinical psychopath.
      Jane: Wow. Well... certainly explains a lot.
      Wainwright: Now I know what I'm dealing with, so I'll adjust accordingly.
      Jane: As you should.

    • Jane: You think I'm an antisocial personality?
      Lisbon: Yeah. Sure. Who isn't.

    • Jane: Strange time for murder, isn't it- in the middle of a protest march?
      Lisbon: Leave it to a killer to do something crazy.
