  • Quotes

    • Jane: How was the rest of the party?
      Lisbon: Torture. Like it can't happen ever ever again.
      Jane: Ten years huh?
      Lisbon: More, actually. One year with you counts as two.

    • Lisbon: Good morning.Thank you for the party,it was very thoughtful.
      Rigsby: You're welcome.
      Lisbon: But I'm never gonna forgive you for that stripper.

    • Lisbon: Are we partners or what?
      Jane : Come here partner.

    • Agent Haffner: (offers her a job) That's the starting salary. That'll keep you in leather jackets, I think.
      Lisbon: It's not about the money. I like what I do. It's a good job. It's good work.
      Agent Haffner: Is it the work, or is it Jane?
      Lisbon: He's part of the work.
      Agent Haffner: Sure. And you guys-you guys have a track record, I-I understand why you wanna stick with that. But if there's one thing that I've learned about Jane, it's that catching bad guys is a game to him, and-and he's gonna quit someday. Maybe because he gets Red John, maybe because, what, he just gets bored. When that happens, you're gonna be on your own. Driving out to some crime scene in the middle of nowhere at 5:00 a.m., asking Rigsby what sort of sad story you gotta unravel this time. Is that what you really want? Because I think you deserve better. Think about it.

    • Rigsby: (toasting) Ladies and gentlemen, ten years ago, Teresa Lisbon left the San Francisco Police Department to join the California Bureau of Investigation. Today she is without doubt the rootinest, tootinest, sharp-shootinest cop in the whole state of California. Happy anniversary, boss.
