|“||What you got in here? Prime rib and ... wow! Is that a lobster wiggling around down there?!||”|
- Goren: Terry Randolph. He's been with school security almost 2 years. He was Phil Legrand's supervisor.
- Eames: Well, here's one reason why Randolph might've been denied for detective. Terry Randolph's a woman. Funny how that detail escaped your powers of observation.
- Goren: Actually, uh, Randolph, he had other problems.
- Randolph: Detective, I prefer being addressed by my rank.
- Goren: Cluster Sergeant!
|“||Clerical mistake, my ass. She got to him.||”|
–Alexandra Eames about Arliss
- Goren: Well, I can vouch for his assistant.
- Eames: Denise? You dog.
- Randolph: If something's important enough, you find a way. We're frugal.
