Alexandra Eames: Let me guess; they find homes for retired polo ponies.

Manager: Are you getting any closer to catching the murderer?
Robert Goren: (speaking close to Janice's ear) Getting closer by the minute.

Lois Romney: They're creepy like a couple of ex-cons in brand new suits. One of them got a tag from the designer warehouse still stuck on his sleeve. I don't have a good feeling about this.

Robert Goren: Fish scale.
Alexandra Eames: (sarcastically) Great, she was attacked by a shark.
Robert Goren: Sharks don't have scales. (Eames sighs)

Dale Van Acker: I didn't do anything!
Robert Goren: Sure you did. You're under arrest for littering.

Robert Goren: You ever think what's it's like living down here?
Alexandra Eames: With what one bedrooms are going for, I've considered it.

Robert Goren: His "arrangement with his wife" is that he gets to be a bad boy once a month, but then he has to tell her what he did.
James Deakins: Oh those wacky Belgians.

Robert Goren: She also tasted positive for lithium.
Alexandra Eames: Might have been for depression.
James Deakins: What's so depressing about being a crack whore?

James Deakins: All those in favor of he's our guy, raise your hand." (Goren and Eames look at each other.) "Oh, that's good.

Alexandra Eames: Housekeeping. Ready or not...

Robert Goren: You're under arrest for the murder of Lois Romney.
Roger Jameson: What, you're serious?
Alexandra Eames: You don't see us wearing clown shoes, do you?

Mrs. Van Acker: You people are all over the map.
Alexandra Eames: We're pretty good at reading maps, Mrs. Van Acker.'

Ron Carver: So you see, Mr. Jameson. The only fingers in the pie are yours.

Robert Goren: My mother didn't like my girlfriends either, even if she pretended to, but she didn't kill any of them.
