- Goren: Croydon. Croydon...McVee is another Croydon.
- Bishop: Who-who's Croydon?
- Goren: He ran out on his wife. Hitchens used him to get at me. And the pattern, one-one-two: it's Wally Stevens.
- Bishop: I-I don't know what you're talking about.
- Bishop: He was an actuary. He had a pattern of five. Five, five notes. Five...pins. Eames would have known...

|“||A computer geek who can clone himself. Scary thought.||”|
–G. Lynn Bishop
- Ron Carver: He killed her to drive his partner back into his arms? That's almost juvenile.
- Robert Goren: It's primitive. Panic is a primitive emotion. That's how he felt without his partner.
- Jack Cadogan: I told you, I never met her. I didn't even know her name. She was just a gamer.
- Robert Goren: Just a gamer. Your partner let a gamer get between you two. If my partner was putting me through that, abandoning me, leaving me vulnerable...impotent...for a nobody...n-no, that's unforgivable.
- Robert Goren: Seven pounds, eight ounces.
- Ron Carver: Excellent.
- G. Lynn Bishop: It's great. You should call her. I'll handle the booking.
Background information and notes
- Detective Eames gives birth (off-camera) to her nephew at the end of this episode. Actress Kathryn Erbe doesn't appear in this episode.
- The title of this episode, "F.P.S.", is a reference to an abbreviation for First-person shooter, a type of video game distinguished by a first person perspective that renders the game world from the visual perspective of the fictional character. It also stands for "frames per second", which can be seen as allusion to the killer's attempts to cast suspicion on multiple persons.
