Wayne Rigsby: I need to talk to you about a murder investigation I'm working on.

[Steve walks away]
Wayne Rigsby: Hello, dad. Nice to see you too.

Wayne Rigsby: You working?
Steve Rigsby: I get by.
Wayne Rigsby: Smuggling cigarettes? Dealing with meth again?
Steve Rigsby: My own flesh and blood - a lousy cop. Makes me want to puke.
Wayne Rigsby: I just don't wanna see you back in jail. That's all.
Steve Rigsby: You always were a self-righteous bastard. That comes from your mom's side of the family. No matter how many times I straighted you out, I never could fix you of that. It's in the blood, I guess.

Teresa Lisbon: I know about your dad. I'm your boss. Steven Robert Rigsby - convicted of manslaughter, assault, drug dealing. Your father was on the list, wasn't he?
Wayne Rigsby: I checked out his alibi. No special treatment. If you want to send someone else...
Teresa Lisbon: I trust you, Rigsby. However, if you *ever* come into contact with your father on a case, next time you bring somebody with you.
Wayne Rigsby: Yeah, okay.

Teresa Lisbon: We need a new angle.
[Rigsby shifts his weight uncomfortably]
Teresa Lisbon: What is it?
Wayne Rigsby: There is... one angle I could try.
Steve Rigsby: [Cut to Steve Rigsby's house] Well, I thought you'd be back.
[Steve notices Van Pelt]
Steve Rigsby: But I didn't think you'd bring a gift.

Wayne Rigsby: You know that game kids play: "My dad can beat up your dad?" No one ever played that with me.

Steve Rigsby: [Steve's holding a knife to Andy's throat] Seems Andy over here was a little mad over the last time we crossed paths. Wanted to fist fight. Only I don't do fist fights. They're a waste of time. Right, Andy?
Andy: Le me go. Please?
Wayne Rigsby: Just put the knife down. Let me handle this.
Steve Rigsby: The Hell with that!
Wayne Rigsby: Dad, nobody needs to get cut, and nobody needs to get shot. Just put... the knife... down.

Grace Van Pelt: [after Rigsby gets Corwin to exit the Meth House by blocking the smoke stack] Pretty good trick.
Wayne Rigsby: Yep. Always worked on my dad.

Steve Rigsby: Hey, what's family for?... You know, I think your mom would be...
Wayne Rigsby: Don't talk about my mom! Shut up! You shut up!

Wayne Rigsby: Wait, there's one more thing: I'm sorry but I'm not going to be at your wedding.
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.

Kimball Cho: Why are you asking? You trying to set me up with someone?
Wayne Rigsby: Turns out, you look up the available scientific evidence on the Internet, you get less hang ups, like themselves way more than younger women, and stay at the sexual peak. That's what the researchers are saying.
Wayne Rigsby: What the hell happened to you at that country club?

Wayne Rigsby: We'd like to start by talking to members of the Women's Committee.

Wayne Rigsby: Uh, perhaps we'd uh, gather them more discreetly.
Heather Prentiss: Everyone here will know in minutes anyhow.
[Speaking into the microphone]
Heather Prentiss: Jackie, Patience, Mandy, the Police are here. They want to talk us about Scarlett's murder. Come to the Rose Courtyard. And everybody, silent auction closes shortly. So get those bids in, folks.

Wayne Rigsby: Yeah. Scam.
Patrick Jane: Scam that can better your life.

Patrick Jane: Didn't Rick Tiegler's black-out strike you as weird?
Wayne Rigsby: Why? He got drunk, he blacked out, he killed someone. Who hasn't been there?

Teresa Lisbon: This case is closed. You're just seeing suggestion everywhere, Jane. You're too suggestible.

Patrick Jane: You're thinking "I'm so glad Jane is joking around, that he can't actually read my mind."

Grace Van Pelt: I don't think it's right to bet on such things. That's a human being that just died!
Wayne Rigsby: No, it's okay. We're in Nevada. Here in California, yeah, it'd be wrong.
[crosses over to Nevada side]
Wayne Rigsby: But here, Nevada. It's okay to gamble on body parts.

Wayne Rigsby: Laid out by a kid, huh?
Coach Dieter: It was a lucky punch.

Wayne Rigsby: My file.
Kimball Cho: You didn't even read your own file?
Wayne Rigsby: No. It's against the rules.
Kimball Cho: You're kidding.
Wayne Rigsby: I like rules. Why be a cop if you don't like rules? What did it say?
Kimball Cho: You know what it says. It's your life. No surprises. Well, I didn't know you were adopted, but other than that...
Wayne Rigsby: [Dumfounded] Adopted? What?

Wayne Rigsby: No. Good. Neither did I.

Grace Van Pelt: Huh?
[Van Pelt reaches into her pocket and pulls out a diamond]
Grace Van Pelt: Wow!

[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.

Wayne Rigsby: Never seen a zebra?
Kendall Cho: Nah.
Wayne Rigsby: Never been to a zoo?
Kendall Cho: Yeah I don't get zoos. You pay money to look at animals, why?

Teresa Lisbon: Play nice, Van Pelt's entitled to her opinion.
Patrick Jane: Not if it's wrong. This is like believing in the Easter Bunny.
Wayne Rigsby: Who said there's no Easter Bunny?

Wayne Rigsby: Oh it's just a ghost then.
Grace Van Pelt: You don't believe in ghosts.
Wayne Rigsby: Yeah, but you do. Go upstairs if you like. I'll take this one.
Grace Van Pelt: Oh, thanks. That's okay.

Wayne Rigsby: Grace, I love you. I've loved you from the first moment I met you. Screw the rules. Screw CBI. I need you.

Kimball Cho: Anything to stop you from dating your co-workers.

Wayne Rigsby: What if she's not interested in me? There's gonna be a lot of guys there. For this to work, she has to be interested in ME.
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.
[in normal voice]
Wayne Rigsby: How was that?
Kimball Cho: Yeah, don't do the accent.

Wayne Rigsby: [Eats some of his food] Not yet.
Grace Van Pelt: Why not?
Wayne Rigsby: This is actually quite good.
[Grace rises up and slaps him]


"The Mentalist: Aingavite Baa (#2.18)" (2010)
Wayne Rigsby: Like I said it's complicated.
Kimball Cho: No it isn't. Which do you want more: job or Van Pelt?
Wayne Rigsby: What? It's - it's not that easy.
Kimball Cho: Sure it is.

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.

[Cho glares at Rigsby]
Wayne Rigsby: It's just a joke.
Kimball Cho: Yeah, funny.
Wayne Rigsby: You're gonna make a Hell of a boss, man. I'm already scared of you.

[Loudly]
Kimball Cho: Hey guys, come on in.
Wayne Rigsby: [Rigsby and Van Pelt enter] So we have a question.

Wayne Rigsby: Yeah. It's weird right?
Kimball Cho: Weird, no. Expensive.


"The Mentalist: The Red Box (#2.17)" (2010)
Wayne Rigsby: There's nobody here. We can lock the door. Nobody's looking.
[Van Pelt sighs]
Wayne Rigsby: Come on.
Grace Van Pelt: We're on duty.
Wayne Rigsby: Yeah. I know. Totally wrong.
[Rigsby laughs]
Wayne Rigsby: Come on.

Wayne Rigsby: [Taking a suspect into custody] You think being a cop is stressful? Trying being a cop in prison.


"The Mentalist: Red Menace (#2.4)" (2009)
Teresa Lisbon: Did you go to some interview school I've never heard of? Next time get the facts. Save the editorial.
Wayne Rigsby: Yes ma'am.
[Looks at Jane]
Teresa Lisbon: I know Jane did it too. He's not a CBI agent. For you, I expect professional standards.
Wayne Rigsby: Yes boss.

Wayne Rigsby: My dad was a biker.
Kimball Cho: Really? I didn't know that.
Wayne Rigsby: No? I thought you read my file.
Kimball Cho: Well, it says he was a big time criminal, didn't specify any affiliations.


"The Mentalist: Blood for Blood (#3.14)" (2011)
Kimball Cho: I don't want to talk about your feelings.
Wayne Rigsby: Good, neither do I.

Grace Van Pelt: I thought you heard my news already. And I really wanted to tell you myself.
[Van Pelt sighs]
Grace Van Pelt: Craig asked me to marry him and I said yes.
[Van Pelt shows Rigsby her engagement ring]
Wayne Rigsby: That's... wonderful, Grace.
[Rigsby hugs Van Pelt]
Wayne Rigsby: That's terrific news. He's a great guy.


"The Mentalist: Blood Money (#2.19)" (2010)
Teresa Lisbon: Anybody see anything?
Wayne Rigsby: Well, we've got an SFPD cam, but so far nothing. Just an average night.
Patrick Jane: Average night, average neighborhood, average murder. Why are we here?

Patrick Jane: He'll kill again. You - you know what he is, Lisbon.
Teresa Lisbon: Knowing isn't proving. Rigsby, have Cho set up on Silvan's house, 24-hour surveillance. If he shows up, have Cho follow and maybe we'll get lucky.
Wayne Rigsby: Okay.
Patrick Jane: This - this is ridiculous. I...
Teresa Lisbon: I know.
Patrick Jane: I'm going to go with Cho.


"The Mentalist: Rose-Colored Glasses (#2.11)" (2010)
Patrick Jane: If you don't cooperate, I'm gonna be force to tell Lisbon about you and Van Pelt.
Wayne Rigsby: Tell what? There's nothing to tell.
Patrick Jane: Really?
Wayne Rigsby: Yeah. I don't know what you're talking about.
Patrick Jane: Ah. Contrary to very strict CBI rules, and regulations, you and Grave Van Pelt are engaged in an illicit affair.
Wayne Rigsby: Nope.
Patrick Jane: You're being childish.

Patrick Jane: Think of it this way. You mess up. We blow the case. I tell Lisbon.
Wayne Rigsby: You're a cold bastard, you know that?


"The Mentalist: Black Gold and Red Blood (#2.6)" (2009)
Wayne Rigsby: I know we've been cool. It's just... it feels like he knows.
Grace Van Pelt: You're being paranoid.
Wayne Rigsby: Just because I'm paranoid, doesn't mean Jane doesn't know.

Sam Bosco: See that's my exact point. There *is* a problem. There is no rule bending in the CBI. You two guys are good agents, but Jane has corrupted you.
Wayne Rigsby: No he hasn't.
Sam Bosco: So you were ready to bend the rules *before* he got here?
Kimball Cho: Thanks for your time.
Sam Bosco: Nice talking to you.


"The Mentalist: The Red Ponies (#3.5)" (2010)
Wayne Rigsby: You don't like dogs?
Kimball Cho: It's all an act with dogs. They do it for the food.
Wayne Rigsby: Everybody does.
Kimball Cho: That's deep.

Wayne Rigsby: [the ME finds a card on the victim] That's my card!
[to Jane]
Wayne Rigsby: How did you do that?
Patrick Jane: Huh? What?
Medical Examiner: Card tricks? A man has lost his life. You should be ashamed of yourself.


"The Mentalist: Ring Around the Rosie (#4.4)" (2011)
Grace Van Pelt: If you quit now, you're going to miss the best part - payback.
Linda Tibbs: What are you talking about.
Grace Van Pelt: A few months ago, I had a fiancé who - he tried to kill me.
Linda Tibbs: You're lying.
Grace Van Pelt: Everybody thought he was the greatest guy - including me... until he pulled a gun.
Linda Tibbs: What did you do?
Grace Van Pelt: I shot him.
Wayne Rigsby: Dead.


"The Mentalist: Miss Red (#1.21)" (2009)
Patrick Jane: When was the last time you saw a doctor's handwriting that you could read?
Teresa Lisbon: So she's precise. Is that what you're implying?
Patrick Jane: Yes, and the possibility that Dr. Brooke Harper is not a doctor.
Teresa Lisbon: Because she has penmanship skills?
Patrick Jane: And she doesn't have that cold, creepy, doctor-y vibe they all have
Wayne Rigsby: Well, to be fair, not all doctors are cold and creepy.
Patrick Jane: First day of medical school, they give you a stack of books and a dead human being. That, I'm afraid, will change you. Brooke Harper was warm and emotional.
Teresa Lisbon: You like her, so she can't be a doctor?
Patrick Jane: Pretty much.


"The Mentalist: Red Herring (#2.15)" (2010)
Kimball Cho: What's that?
Wayne Rigsby: I don't know. Some h'ordourve thing they're handing out. Want one?
Kimball Cho: No thanks. I don't eat anything I can't identify.


"The Mentalist: Carnelian, Inc. (#1.17)" (2009)
Patrick Jane: You know, when this worm was alive, this whole desert was the floor of a great sea. There were dinosaurs swimming above us.
Wayne Rigsby: That is kind of awesome.
Patrick Jane: Yeah.
[Tosses the worm to Cho, who examines it]
Patrick Jane: Sharks the size of buses. Brilliantly colored sea monsters. Those mountains... they would have been volcanoes.
Kimball Cho: This is a goat turd, about six months old.
Patrick Jane: Still... Giant sharks, here.


"The Mentalist: Red Dawn (#5.5)" (2012)
Wayne Rigsby: So Minelli really hired this Jane guy?
Teresa Lisbon: Well, he exposed a corrupt cop, dethroned a judge. Those are all major points for us. As far as Minelli's concerned, he's a hero.


"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!


"The Mentalist: The Desert Rose (#6.1)" (2013)
Patrick Jane: You told Cho.
Wayne Rigsby: He can't be the only member of the team who doesn't know. Come on, that's not fair.


"The Mentalist: Red Badge (#2.3)" (2009)
Teresa Lisbon: All right then, look in the dumpsters. Let's get out of here.
Grace Van Pelt: I did it last time.
Wayne Rigsby: Aw man, I just got this suit.
Kimball Cho: Okay, rock/paper/scissors on three: one... two... three.


"The Mentalist: Bloodsport (#3.11)" (2011)
Wayne Rigsby: If LaRoche finds out about this, my career is over.
Kimball Cho: Yeah, it is. Unless I lie as well. Back you up, right?
Wayne Rigsby: I'm sorry man. I know I've put you in a bad spot.
Kimball Cho: I've been a cop close to 10 years. Never lied to another cop - not once!
Wayne Rigsby: Look, I'm not asking you to lie now. I just - I want you to do what you think is right.
Kimball Cho: Yeah.
[Gets in the car]
Wayne Rigsby: So what are you going to do?
Kimball Cho: I'm not going to lie for you.


"The Mentalist: Code Red (#2.16)" (2010)
Wayne Rigsby: Anything to be looking out for in particular?
Teresa Lisbon: Oh, uh, one of them released a lethal super virus that could kill half the state of California. So I guess we're looking for someone with a prior background as an evil supervillain.
Kimball Cho: Ok.
Teresa Lisbon: ...That last part was a joke.
Kimball Cho: Yeah. We get it.


"The Mentalist: Scarlet Ribbons (#4.1)" (2011)
Wayne Rigsby: How you doing? You good?
Grace Van Pelt: Yeah, I'm fine.
Kimball Cho: Two days ago, you shot and killed your fiancée. You can't be fine.


"The Mentalist: The Crimson Ticket (#5.1)" (2012)
Wayne Rigsby: Did, uh, Mancini really throw a bottle at you?
Patrick Jane: Yes, he did, and then he proceeded to chase me through the state house, but failed to catch me.
Teresa Lisbon: Congratulations. Another mortal enemy made. You should be very proud.


"The Mentalist: Little Red Book (#4.2)" (2011)
Patrick Jane: Come on. When have I steered you wrong?
Wayne Rigsby: Recently?


"The Mentalist: Crimson Casanova (#1.14)" (2009)
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: They're *drunk* women. You can't generalize all women in general.
Teresa Lisbon: [Whispers to Simon] This is your fault.
Patrick Jane: No, it's not. I'm just sitting here.


"The Mentalist: Bloodhounds (#3.12)" (2011)
Dr. Montague: I don't need to conduct an analysis to see that you're still in love with someone else. The probability of us having a successful relationship is no more than 20%.
Wayne Rigsby: 20%?
Dr. Montague: Tops.


"The Mentalist: So Long, and Thanks for All the Red Snapper (#4.22)" (2012)
Grace Van Pelt: There's something on your...
Wayne Rigsby: It's just vomit.


"The Mentalist: Throwing Fire (#2.10)" (2009)
Wayne Rigsby: $20 million, that's a pretty good motive. $20 million - I'd kill you.
Grace Van Pelt: Oh, really?
Wayne Rigsby: No. I mean, um, kidding. It's a joke.


"The Mentalist: Red Sky at Night (#3.1)" (2010)
Wayne Rigsby: 12 cents, seriously?
Grace Van Pelt: What? She cleaned me out.
Wayne Rigsby: Yeah, of 12 cents.


"The Mentalist: Red John's Friends (#1.11)" (2009)
Teresa Lisbon: We closed cases before he came. We'll close cases after he's gone.
Kimball Cho: Yeah. Just not so many.
Wayne Rigsby: The cases are *not* the point! It's not that we need him. He needs *us*!


"The Mentalist: Red Tide (#1.3)" (2008)
Hope: Are you guys cops?
Wayne Rigsby: CBI.
Hope: What's CBI?
Wayne Rigsby: California Bureau of Investigation.
Patrick Jane: Cops.


"The Mentalist: Strawberries and Cream: Part 1 (#3.23)" (2011)
Teresa Lisbon: [after LaRoche leaves] God, I miss Hightower. Aside from the murder stuff obviously. Screw it. Even with the murder stuff. How does he just appear out of nowhere like that?
Patrick Jane: He's a ghost - from the fifth dimension. Right, Rigsby?
Wayne Rigsby: He's the boss. Not going there.


"The Mentalist: Red Alert (#3.13)" (2011)
Wayne Rigsby: Well, maybe we'll get lucky. Catch a dunk. We're due an easy one.
Teresa Lisbon: Ugh, you shouldn't have said that.
Wayne Rigsby: Said what?
Teresa Lisbon: "We're due an easy one." Now we're jinxed.
Wayne Rigsby: Sorry.


"The Mentalist: Devil's Cherry (#5.2)" (2012)
Grace Van Pelt: Preliminary forensics report. There were no useable prints on the teapot or bowl. Well, except for Jane's prints.
Wayne Rigsby: Smudging finger prints. Drinking evidence. He's like a drunk uncle.


"The Mentalist: Red Queen (#3.16)" (2011)
Wayne Rigsby: Oh yeah, a little carne asada, after we check out the warehouse. Muy bien.
Kimball Cho: No.
Wayne Rigsby: Why not?
Kimball Cho: I don't wanna cross hobo alley to order lunch from a truck that's near the sewage ditch under the freeway.
Wayne Rigsby: But there's tacos.


"The Mentalist: Blood in, Blood Out (#2.14)" (2010)
Kimball Cho: [Rigsby keeps flipping a coin] You're not getting enough sex with Van Pelt.
Wayne Rigsby: [Rising up] Hey. Shh. We don't talk about that.


"The Mentalist: Red Carpet Treatment (#3.4)" (2010)
Kimball Cho: Someone was looking for somethin'.
Wayne Rigsby: Thank you, Captain Obvious.
Kimball Cho: Three hours of brooding silence, and then sarcasm. It's like we're married.
Wayne Rigsby: Sorry, Cho. It's just Special Agent Craig O'Laughlin and his chopper. What does she see in that guy, anyway?
Kimball Cho: Ivy League degree in criminology, six years in the 101st Airborne, and a black belt in wushu from a REAL Shaolin temple.
Wayne Rigsby: Thanks, buddy.
