  • Trivia

    • When we see the victim fall, she ends face up over a table. When the team shows up, she is lying face down on the floor.

    • At the end of the episode when Jackie Shaper shows up at CBI HQ for her date with Wayne, she is wearing a very sexy black and grey dress. Two days later on 2/19/2009 a Burn Notice episode, "Truth and Reconciliation" aired. In that episode, when Fi is at the home of Jean-Pierre Duman to spy on him, she is wearing the exact same dress.

  • Quotes

    • Victor: I wanna thank you and your team. Although, I must admit that whole scene in front of the house--

      Oscar: It was make-believe, dad.

      Victor: Sorry. The make-believe was a bit unorthodox and unpleasant, but I'm sure you all know what you're doing.

      Lisbon: Most of the time.

    • Jane: I do hate when people say thank you.

      Rigsby: Why?

      Lisbon: He likes to play the Lone Ranger. Who was that masked man? I never got the chance to thank him.

      Jane: Exactly.

    • Rigsby: You think about older women?

      Cho: Where's this coming from? I don't think about older women. My mother's an older woman.

      Rigsby: Not old, old. Just older, you know, older than you.

      Cho: Why are you asking? You're not trying to set me up with somebody, are you?

    • (Rigsby is looking at a lipstick which is part of the evidence)

      Cho: If you're thinking of trying that on, don't. Not your shade.

    • Rigsby: Poison and a message in lipstick says this murder was done by a woman. Women have no secrets from other women.

      Jane: Well, unless it was a cunning man posing as a woman.

      Rigsby: What you think?

      Jane: No.

    • Cho: Judge's clerk says we won't get a search warrant for Scarlett's safe until tomorrow morning, then we'll go in and tear the place apart. (Rigsby gives him a look to remind him that Asra is present) Oh, sorry.

      Rigsby: You didn't hear that, it's confidential.

      Mandy: Confidential? Oh, of course.

      Rigsby: Now seriously, don't tell anyone. Okay?

      Mandy: I understand. May I leave now?

      Rigsby: Yeah, 'course. (Asra leaves)

      Rigsby: (walks over to Cho) Not bad. Delivery's a little wooden.

      Cho: Wooden? Me? Yeah, and you're Marlon Brando.

    • (After receiving paninis from a suspect)

      Cho: What's in the sandwiches?

      Rigsby: It's a panini, if you don't mind. It's, er, ham and cheese.

      Cho: (as Rigsby takes a bite) And who knows what else?

    • Van Pelt: Boss?

      Lisbon: Hmm?

      Van Pelt: I've been here nearly six months now, half a year.

      Lisbon: What do you want? Half a cake?

      Van Pelt: I want to take the lead on this interview.

      Lisbon: (she pauses) Okay.

      Van Pelt: Okay?

      Lisbon: Yeah, sure.

      Van Pelt: Thanks, boss.

    • Patrick: (to Oscar) D'Artagnan. I have to go.

      This is a reference to The Three Musketeers, the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas, which has been made into countless films and TV shows over the years and features lots of swordplay which Oscar loves.
