It was Tina. She was mine. What did you do to her?

–Conroy Smith

Want me to stick a dart in him?

–Alexandra Eames

Connie Smith: No one betrays me.
Robert Goren: C'mon. Tina or Caroline?
Connie Smith: No one betrays me.
Robert Goren: Think again! We got the smoking gun.

The killer was targeting people on diets?

–James Deakins

Robert Goren: ...And you're special. Well, aren't ya, Connie?
Connie Smith: No. I'm not that special.
Robert Goren: No. I think you made yourself special. I think that's the lie you told yourself to explain why your mother ditched you.
Connie Smith: No. That's not reality. My mother has important work.
Bishop: Like cleaning motel rooms in Laughlin? Well, here's her number if you want to call her.
Robert Goren: Ooh, look...Look. BING! Reality! People leave you. Your mother, and soon, your uncle.

Robert Goren: So they got it from the same girl.
Elizabeth Rodgers: Unless toilet seats and doorknobs are making a comeback.
Well, it's like the book says. That "Every sin carries grace within it". Ouch.

–Robert Goren
