Robert Goren: He needs to be caught in the act. Maybe he can be given the right stimuli.

Robert Goren: This came in twenty minutes ago. Females, caucasian, young blonde... approximately five feet tall, slim build...
Alexandra Eames: Big day for little women.

Denise Talbott: I have a medical condition. My doctor prescribed those.
Robert Goren: There's no prescription number on these, you got these under the table. The only medical condition you have is denial!

Robert Goren: (smells the body) Well, unless they're scenting the ocean with lavender, this woman was drowned in a bathtub.

Alexandra Eames: I didn't take this job to get noticed.

Robert Goren: You know, I have a theory about why certain men are attracted to petite women. You wanna hear it?
Henry Talbott: Not particularly.
Robert Goren: Petite women are a snug fit for small men.
Henry Talbott: That's so ridiculous.
Robert Goren: No. I think I'm onto something here. Small men can feel like they have a titan missile in their pocket.

Robert Goren: You got small hands, too!

Robert Goren: Hey, Don Juan. You're under arrest.

Alexandra Eames: The train's about to run out of gravy.

Hostess: Sorry mister, I have to work. I can't sit and talk to you.
Robert Goren: Let's dance. I like to dance.
