Grace Van Pelt
Dr. Royston Daniel
Rigsby: He's lying.
Jane: Is he?
Rigsby: Given that the girl he dragged in is not actually a bag of spuds like he says, then yeah.
Jane: It's not lying if he believes it.
Cho: Yeah, you took down a 100-pound woman. Put in that context, you did good.
Rigsby: What do you mean, in that context?
Lisbon: In the context of someone letting himself get hypnotized, nearly throwing his colleague off a building and then finally being able to overpower a small, crazy woman to retrieve the situation, you did good.
Lisbon: We better go pick up Daniel.
Jane: If we walk, you can burn some case-closed pizza calories.
Lisbon: Ha, ha. Cute.
Rigsby: Oh, I've been hypnotized, have I? You gonna make me do embarrassing things? Pretend I'm Tina Turner or something?
Jane: You wanna be like Tina Turner?
Lisbon: Carl is still our prime suspect in this. We can't use him a bait.
Jane: Well, as long as we don't lose him or break him, then what's the problem?
Lisbon: This case is closed. You're just seeing suggestion everywhere, Jane. You're too suggestible.
Lisbon: Oh, right. Too much of a control freak for that?
Rigsby: Pot, meet kettle. Kettle, pot. (Lisbon gives him a look.)
(Jane is trying to convince everyone else that Rigsby is hypnotized)
Jane: Deeply hypnotized subjects are very suggestible and have very little inhibition. Rigsby, do me a favor. Close your eyes. Please. (Rigsby closes his eyes.) Now, relax. Don't tell me, but think about it. Think about what you most wanna be doing right now. You can do anything you like in the whole world. What are you gonna do? I want you to open your eyes and do it. (Rigsby opens his eyes, gets up and kisses Van Pelt.)
Jane: Oh, yeah. That's what I'm talking about.
Lisbon: Okay, he's hypnotized.
Van Pelt: (coming to her senses and walking away) Well UN-hypnotize him.
Jane: You sure?
Jane: Hypnosis is just a way to connect to the imagination rather than the conscious mind. The mind will accept whatever the imagination creates, however bizarre.
Lisbon: Hypnotism is what you use against my explicit orders to get witnesses to tell the truth. It's a little different than convincing somebody that a dead girl is a sack of vegetables.
Jane: Different in scale.
(Talking about Carl Resnik who's been hypnotized)
Jane: He's all soft and squishy and malleable.
Lisbon: Well, can you fix him? Lift the trance, make him remember what happened?
Jane: I could try but without knowing the trigger it would be like you and me playing Marco Polo in the Atlantic. Take forever and you get all pruny. Easier just to find the hypnotist and ask him.
Lisbon: What's NLP?
Lindsay Hendricks: Neurolinguistic programming.
Jane: Well, sneaky ways to influence people doesn't sound quite as catchy.
(Rigsby pretends that he doesn't remember kissing Van Pelt when he was hypnotized)
Jane: You honestly don't remember it?
Rigsby: Don't remember what?
Cho: He remembers.
Lisbon: He so remembers.
Jane: It'll come to you.
Dr. Daniel: You're ambitious, more than you let anyone see. A girl from nowheresville, desperate to make it big, but you're worried that you'll always be smalltown, smalltime, you haven't got what it takes, and that's why you're so shut down to everything but this job.
Van Pelt: Dr. Daniel, no offense, but I've been working with Patrick Jane for nine months now. You wanna get under my skin, you're gonna have to up your game.
