  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Jane: Well, that's a big haul today. Solved a murder. You booked three scumbags, as you coppers like to say. You should be very proud.
      Lisbon: I don't think I've ever been so depressed about a case. I can't get that kid out of my head.
      Jane: You want some tea?
      Lisbon: I don't think tea's gonna do it.

    • Lisbon: Well, Glennda's prints don't match any of the prints at the crime scene, and I did background checks on the drag queens. None of them stand out.
      Jane: Don't let them hear you say that.

    • Jane: You just called Glennda she.
      Lisbon: So?
      Jane : You didn't before. (beat) I have to go.
      Lisbon: Where?
      Jane: I just had a thoughtless impulse or an inspired hunch. I'm not sure which. I'll let you know.

    • Jane: (sniffs the air)
      Lisbon: What?
      Jane: Are you wearing perfume?
      Lisbon: (sarcastically) Right.
      Jane: Well, you've been standing close to someone that is.
      Lisbon: That would be Glennda. She's very fragrant.

    • Jane: Uh, we have some suspects in the murder investigation. I was hoping that you could come in and pick out the killer from the lineup.
      Glennda: I can't do that. Uh, I might make myself his next target. Enough people hate us for who we are. I'm not going to give them added incentive. I thought I made myself clear about that.
      Jane: Well, what you have made clear here is that you know how to celebrate what's different... And Archie Bloom was different, and he was burned alive for it.

    • Lisbon: We've got three prime murder suspects, all of whom are guilty of other crimes.
      Jane: Well, thanks to the evidence you were provided.
      Lisbon: Uncovered, not provided.
      Jane: Semantics.

    • Lisbon: Can I ask you something? Do you always go out like this? In drag, I mean.
      Glennda: Whenever I get dressed, I try to consider where I'm going, who I'm going to see, and how I can blow them away.
      Lisbon: Let me escort you to fingerprinting.
      Glennda: (cheery) A police escort. How could I refuse?

    • Jane: Is that a tear I see?
      Lisbon: Yeah right... just keep watching.
