      • Sara: (when Jake balks at going to a gay bar undercover) McCartey, get over it.
        Jake: It...It's just a waste of time. Who's ever gonna believe that I'm gay?
        Sara: You think that everyone that goes there is gay?
        Jake: Yeah.
        Sara: Just like you can 'always tell'?
        Jake: Yeah.
        Sara: Sure couldn't tell about me. (Jake stares at Sara) Jake, good lookin' guy like you...ever wonder why I haven't made a move?
        Jake: (disbelievingly) Huh, get out. (Sara's expression remains serious) Get out!
        Sara: Seriously, we're going undercover.

        Sara: I get that from all my murder suspects.

        Jake: Your head...in a vise.
        Isaac Sullivan: No. That would be making ugliness out of beauty, and we make beauty out of ugliness, Jake...Time to get ugly.

      • Sara: Wow. You two ever date the same girl?
        Jake: Or guy?
        Isaac Sullivan 3: No. We haven't. Lose the gun.

      • Gabriel: I got a death threat from someone who doesn't want me talking to you about that.
        Sara: Let me guess. Tall, black hair, black overcoat, drops the temp in a room about ten degrees?
