Patrick Jane: Oh.
[Jane chuckles]
Patrick Jane: You tell me. And forget about the $500 an hour. I'm on Civil Service pay.
Kristina Frye: Okay, for free then. I think you act assured and arrogant but inside you're troubled with deep guilt and self-loathing. A recent trauma in your past perhaps. But you're more than a little unstable.

Grace Van Pelt: You *are* good.

Wayne Rigsby: [Jeremy enters half dressed with a can of whipped cream] Hi Jeremy.

Grace Van Pelt: [to Rigsby] Listen about the other thing. It's... I, uh... maybe it's not the right time.

Grace Van Pelt: So what was it?
Patrick Jane: Beckworth was a collector. He collected hundreds of one thing. Some of the rarest, finest examples in the world. Worth *tens* of millions of dollars.

Patrick Jane: Smells good.
[Everyone realizes what's in Beckworth's treasure]

Grace Van Pelt: [Smirking] I can do a digital zoom.
Patrick Jane: Good.

Patrick Jane: Nobody's perfect.
Teresa Lisbon: That's it? Carl Ward is crooked because he got shot?
Patrick Jane: He's an ex tennis pro.
Wayne Rigsby: So?
Patrick Jane: Shady people. By definition, disappointed. Should be on center court at Wimbledon, instead he's tossing lobs to rich old ladies. Makes him bitter and twisted.
Teresa Lisbon: [sarcastically] Case closed.

Patrick Jane: Rigsby put something in your pocket.
Grace Van Pelt: Huh?
[Van Pelt reaches into her pocket and pulls out a diamond]
Grace Van Pelt: Wow!
[Van Pelt looks at Rigsby]
Wayne Rigsby: H-he's messing with you!
[Van Pelt looks at Jane]
Patrick Jane: Uh, it's compressed carbon. If you want to keep it, I don't know about Rigsby, but I wouldn't tell a soul.

Grace Van Pelt: Is this all it's going to be? Sneaking around all the time, afraid someone's going to find out.
Wayne Rigsby: No. It's just the bureau rules. Rules are rules, right?
Grace Van Pelt: Maybe I'm sick of the rules.

Grace Van Pelt: One crazy evil person, I understand, but two? Husband and wife? Marriage is supposed to be a sacred loving thing.
Patrick Jane: They were soulmates in their own strange way.

Grace Van Pelt: I don't get it. She actually enjoyed helping him kill. One crazy, evil person I understand, but two? Husband and wife? Marriage is supposed to be a sacred, loving thing.

"The Mentalist: Bleeding Heart (#2.12)" (2010)

Grace Van Pelt: I've learned about myself as well as about other people. Stuff I wish I didn't know sometimes.

Madeleine Hightower: [to Rigsby, Van Pelt & Lisbon] You work together, you develop feelings. Nothing wrong with that. But you know very well it's against CBI rules, and like I tell my kids: rules are rules. If you want to stay together that's your choice, but one of you has to transfer out of the unit. If you both want to stay in the unit, then you can't be together. That's what it is. Give me your decision by tomorrow at the latest... Questions?
Grace Van Pelt: No ma'am.

Grace Van Pelt: There's one piece of good news. We ran you through the fingerprints database. You're not up there.
Jane Doe: How is that good news?
Grace Van Pelt: It means you're not a criminal, or you're a very very good one.

Grace Van Pelt: You'd be leaving the unit - for us. I don't want the responsibility. You'll hate me for it. Maybe not today, but someday you will.
Wayne Rigsby: No Grace, we...
Grace Van Pelt: I'm sorry.

Wayne Rigsby: Okay not splat, bam.

Grace Van Pelt: What do mean "be friendly?"
Teresa Lisbon: Need a map?... Good luck.

[the team is looking at old articles about Lisbon]
Grace Van Pelt: Look, another one, Lisbon was like a rock star for awhile.

Grace Van Pelt: Dr. Daniel, no offense but I've been working with Patrick Jane for 9 months now. You want to get under my skin? You're going to have to up your game.

Grace Van Pelt: [after Rigsby kisses Van Pelt under hypnotic suggestion] Well, unhypnotize him.
Patrick Jane: You sure?
Grace Van Pelt: Do it!

Wayne Rigsby: Did I make a fool of myself? Cluck like a chicken. I didn't do Tina Turner, did I?

"The Mentalist: Crimson Casanova (#1.14)" (2009)

Teresa Lisbon: Like we're toasters.
Grace Van Pelt: Like men don't have buttons too.
Patrick Jane: Men are like toasters. Women, a little more like, uh... accordians.

Wayne Rigsby: I don't believe this guy. I give up! I do not understand women. Never have, never will. Seems like the dumber you treat them, the better they like it.

Grace Van Pelt: And no offense, but why is my person life have any concern to you? Or Rigsby, for that matter?
Patrick Jane: Who me? I'm just nosy. But Rigsby, he loves you... He's just scared of emotional committment. And you're attracted to him, but you're deeply repressed and emotionally shutdown.


"The Mentalist: Red Rum (#1.12)" (2009)
Wayne Rigsby: Oh my god! Where's my food?
[holding up a bag of carrots]
Wayne Rigsby: What is this?
Grace Van Pelt: That is healthy and nutritious snacking.
Wayne Rigsby: I'm going to die.
[Van Pelt chuckles sarcastically]
Wayne Rigsby: Seriously, I'm allergic to carrots.

Wayne Rigsby: It's just a silly alternative lifestyle: like Star Trek or yoga.

[Rigsby clears his throat]


"The Mentalist: Like a Redheaded Stepchild (#3.21)" (2011)

Grace Van Pelt: Oh?
[Van Pelt sighs]
Grace Van Pelt: That's too bad. You have something else planned for that day?
Wayne Rigsby: No,you see the problem is: I'm still in love with you.
Grace Van Pelt: You can't...
Wayne Rigsby: Hold on. I'm not trying to win you back. You're marrying a good man. That's not gonna change. But neither am I. This whole thing where we pretend we're just friends, it doesn't work. I don't know what will work. But I know one thing: I can't watch you marry another man. You have a good day, and a good life.


"The Mentalist: Throwing Fire (#2.10)" (2009)

Grace Van Pelt: My sister, she was just like you.

"The Mentalist: Redline (#2.13)" (2010)
Wayne Rigsby: I-I-I meant stupid if we got married today.
Grace Van Pelt: But what about tomorrow? I mean long term, where are we going?
Wayne Rigsby: Uh, do we have to discuss this right now?
Grace Van Pelt: Yeah! We probably should have done it before we announced our relationship and I endangered my job!
Wayne Rigsby: My job's on the line too!
Grace Van Pelt: That's not what you said before!

Teresa Lisbon: You didn't tell me.
Wayne Rigsby: Excuse me?
Teresa Lisbon: That you're together. You didn't say it, I didn't hear you. There are no rules being broken that I'm aware of. No holding hands, no soulful looks, and absolutely no kissing in the office.

Terence Badali: [to the person with whom he's on the phone] I'll call you back.
[he hangs up]
Terence Badali: What about her?
Kimball Cho: You left a threatening message on her answering machine recently.

Rob Wallace: [thinks Jane and Grace are engaged] Ok I'm just going to say it. Are you sure about marrying this guy? I mean, he kind of appears to be a jerk. I mean - no offense.
Grace Van Pelt: Oh no. Yes. I'm not marrying him. That's no. Don't worry about that. Not gonna happen.

Teresa Lisbon: Where is everyone?
Grace Van Pelt: Weird. They all called in to sign out. Jane wasn't feeling well. Rigsby had a hot date. And Cho's got Kings tickets.
Teresa Lisbon: Son of a...
Grace Van Pelt: What?
Teresa Lisbon: Jane doesn't get sick. Rigsby's not on a date because he's in love with you. And the Kings aren't playing tonight.

Grace Van Pelt: No, I mean about Rigsby. How do you know about that?
Teresa Lisbon: Everybody knows about that. The Attorney General knows that.


"The Mentalist: Pilot (#1.1)" (2008)

Patrick Jane: Okay, later tonight, when Rigsby asks you to come back to his hotel room...
[Rigsby chokes and coughs in surprise]
Patrick Jane: Say yes.
Grace Van Pelt: Excuse me?
Patrick Jane: I know, you were planning on refusing him very curtly. First week on the job, you want to set a tone, no monkey business. But why not? Rigsby's an excellent lover, I'm sure. Tough, but fair. Right?
[Rigsby glares at him]
Patrick Jane: Right.
Grace Van Pelt: The Kingdom of God is a real place, Mr. Jane. And you have an immortal soul.
Patrick Jane: Oh, I do so hope you're wrong.

Grace Van Pelt: Five hundred years in the future, it could be totally normal to communicate with the other side.
Patrick Jane: The other side? Your father's a football coach, yeah?
Grace Van Pelt: How did you know that?
Patrick Jane: It's obvious from your whole demeanor. My point is, didn't dad always say life is like football? When that final whistle blows, the game is over, done. There is no more. There is no other side. This is it. Lobster and bread rolls and nautical kitsch and then, psh. Nothingness.


"The Mentalist: Ladies in Red (#1.4)" (2008)
Patrick Jane: I wanted to win the bet too, but uh... I couldn't. Just because I lost doesn't mean you shouldn't take my advice.
Wayne Rigsby: Yeah I should.
Patrick Jane: I'm serious man. Go for it!
[Jane leaves]
Grace Van Pelt: ...What's he talking about?
Wayne Rigsby: Nothing.

Grace Van Pelt: Adrianna, we can charge you right now with burglary, vandalism, assault with a deadly weapon. That's 10 to 15 right there. Wouldn't you rather talk to us about your situation?
Adrianna Jonovic: From you, I buy cookies. I don't talk about situation.

Teresa Lisbon: Not at all, sir.

Teresa Lisbon: There you are, where you been?
Patrick Jane: Out back checking out escape routes
Teresa Lisbon: You get anything?
Patrick Jane: The killer didn't find what he was looking for
Grace Van Pelt: How do you know?
Patrick Jane: This entire room has been torn apart, you find what you're looking for, you end your search, one side should be untouched
Grace Van Pelt: Unless he found it in the last place he looked
Patrick Jane: The possibility of finding something in the last place you look is extremely improbable
[he walks away]
Teresa Lisbon: Where are you going?
Patrick Jane: As much as I enjoy the surroundings,we do need to solve this case, it is our job am I wrong?

Grace Van Pelt: She will; just be yourself.
Kimball Cho: That's a terrible idea
Wayne Rigsby: Maybe I should do an accent or something.
Grace Van Pelt: I don't think you need an accent...
Wayne Rigsby: [in British accent] Hello. Rigsby. Wayne Rigsby from Sussex. Uh, pleasure to meet you... cheerio.
