    • (Elena and Danny are kissing when Jack walks in)
      Jack: Am I interrupting?
      Elena and Danny: Yes. (they go back to kissing)
      Jack: Uh...right. Please continue.

    • Jack: Well, it's a good thing you have all these cameras because you're going to need the footage as evidence when one of those perverts comes in here and kills you.
      Anton: Okay, if you guys did your job, we wouldn't have to. Look, without people like me these animals would be everywhere.
      Jack: You know, I'm, uh, really sorry. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. Um, what I meant to say was that a plan this stupid … must have gone wrong once or twice.

    • Jack: There's a lot of places in a salvage yard where you can bury a body.
      Martin: Mm-hmm. And Bennett had plenty of motive to go after our guy. Within a year of the accident, he declared bankruptcy and went through a divorce.
      Samantha: Well, if Chris wanted to make amends, that would be a good place to start.
      Jack: He probably should have sent a card.

    • Samantha: When he told his brother he had done too much damage, what do you think he was talking about?
      Jack: I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that he wasn't going around apologizing to pedophiles.

    • Wallace: Well, that's all I got. What do you think?
      Jack: I think, Wallace, that you need to find another line of work. You're just way too stupid to be a criminal.

    • Danny: I'm going to have ERT run the prints off these root beer bottles. They were half-full, which makes me think this guy was not alone.
      Martin: You know, I'm not so sure that the second set of prints are gonna come back to Chris. Why would he hang out and have a root beer with this scumbag?
      Danny: Hmm … Whenever I shoot a perv, I always invite him over for pizza first.

    • Danny: We got a shot to the head.
      Martin: Well, you don't need legs to pull a trigger.

    • Jack: Sit down.
      Samantha: I'll tell you what though, your lawyer can bring those files in for us.
      Private Investigator: Now why would I need a lawyer?
      Jack: Because you just admitted to extortion, genius. I would have thought with your extraordinary peripheral vision, you would have seen that one coming.
