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.

[Cho kicks him]
KS: Good to see you too, bro. Haven't changed much.

Kimball Cho: Oh, Frank, don't make me kill you too. Now tell me the truth. You tell me the truth and I won't hurt you.

Kimball Cho: Mr. Reed, I apologize for accussing of several crimes I knew you had not committed. And for assaulting you, repeatedly.
Adam Reed: That's it?
Patrick Jane: Yes. That's it. I thought that was very good.

Kimball Cho: [to Mrs. Seung] When I learned he had been killed, I didn't want to admit that... maybe he had turned his life around. Because that would mean that I let him down.
[In Korean]
Kimball Cho: I'm sorry, Mrs. Seung. I'm so sorry. Please forgive me.

"The Mentalist: Bloodstream (#3.17)" (2011)
Teresa Lisbon: Are you for real? We've had to endure your surprise visits for months. You've named your killer. She's on the run. Why do you keep showing up at my crime scenes?
LaRoche: Because this morning I...
Teresa Lisbon: I don't even want to hear it! The second Hightower's replacement is annouced, I am going to put in a formal request to keep you away from me!
LaRoche: As I was saying, this morning I was assigned to take over Hightower's duties, which includes overseeing this team.
Patrick Jane: Oopsy-daisy.
LaRoche: I appreciate your candor, and I'm going to honor your request. Agent Cho.
Kimball Cho: Yeah?
LaRoche: I'm putting you in charge of the team as of right now. Agent Lisbon, you report to Cho. Good day.

Kimball Cho: If I'm in charge, I have to be in charge for real.
Teresa Lisbon: I will back you 100%. You're a senior agent. Show 'em what you've got.
Kimball Cho: You sure?
Teresa Lisbon: I'm positive. I'll clear out my office for you this afternoon.
Kimball Cho: I don't want your office.
Teresa Lisbon: I told you it's o...
Kimball Cho: I prefer no walls between me and my team.

Wayne Rigsby: So listen, delicate question.
Kimball Cho: Yes.
Wayne Rigsby: Thursday quiz nights: strictly no bosses as you know. Should we give your spot to Lisbon? Feels kind of weird.
Kimball Cho: Do what you feel is right.
Wayne Rigsby: Or should we just hang on to your spot - in case you screw up.
[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.

Kimball Cho: Listen boss.
Teresa Lisbon: Don't call me "boss." I'm not your boss. You're my boss.

Teresa Lisbon: Now that Quick's been fired for trading an MRI machine for a kidney, let's hope that the hospital's transplant program stays on the up-and-up.
Kimball Cho: Yeah, there's an endless supply of doctors like Quick in the world.
Teresa Lisbon: Way to see the bright side.

Teresa Lisbon: I want you to know that my re-instatement is in no way a reflection of your abilities. You did a great job.
Kimball Cho: I know.
Kimball Cho: Hey guys, come on in.
Wayne Rigsby: [Rigsby and Van Pelt enter] So we have a question.
Teresa Lisbon: If there's a group hug coming, I am so out of here.
Grace Van Pelt: [Van Pelt chuckles] No hugs. We're going out for a drink to celebrate the return of Cho. Want to join us?
Teresa Lisbon: Guys, thank you. I can't I got a lot of paperwork to do, and there's a management meeting. Next time.
Wayne Rigsby: Right.
Grace Van Pelt: Good night.
Wayne Rigsby: Next time. Good night.
Kimball Cho: Night, boss.
Teresa Lisbon: [the team leaves] The price of power.

"The Mentalist: Miss Red (#1.21)" (2009)
Kimball Cho: We're gonna have to take a look around.
Floor Manager: That's not our policy, sir.
Kimball Cho: If we have to obtain a warrant, we're gonna come back here and take every computer, and every piece of paper in this building. And then we're gonna have a sit-down chat with each one of your members.
Floor Manager: Welcome to the Backgammon Club.

Patrick Jane: My friend, Cho here, will take you by the wrist so as not to let you escape us again.
Kimball Cho: Hi.
Dr. Brooke Harper: Warm hands.
Patrick Jane: Ah, I bet you say that to all your arresting officers.

Teresa Lisbon: You and Rigsby go and talk to Gulbrand's partner, Rick Bregman. He should be at Gaia Matrix.
Kimball Cho: All right. Will do, boss.
[hanging up]
Kimball Cho: Rigsby.
Wayne Rigsby: [groaning, obviously still sick] What?
Kimball Cho: Never mind.

Kimball Cho: What are you doing?
Patrick Jane: I'm just confirming that Jim Gulbrand's a member here.
Kimball Cho: Why not just ask?
Patrick Jane: Go ahead. Ask him.
Kimball Cho: Is Jim Gulbrand a member here?
Floor Manager: I'm sorry, sir, we don't divulge membership details.
Patrick Jane: See?

Kimball Cho: All I was able to find at Dr. Brooke Harper's apartment. Bank account emptied, credit cards maxed out. She must have been packed and ready to leave days ago. Her Social Security number and medical license are fakes, too. We have no idea who this woman is.
Teresa Lisbon: Well, we know that she's smart. She posed as a doctor for seven months, managed to elude you and Rigsby.
Kimball Cho: Well, she had a head start. She didn't elude us.
[seeing Jane's expression]
Kimball Cho: All right, she eluded us.
Patrick Jane: Well, she's a professional con woman. I mean, she probably specializes in the seduction of rich and successful, socially awkward men.
Teresa Lisbon: You think she's done this before?
Patrick Jane: Oh, yes. Many times.

"The Mentalist: Red Rum (#1.12)" (2009)

Kimball Cho: Look, a goat. Goats are signs of Satan.
Teresa Lisbon: So petting zoos are like gateways to Hell?
Kimball Cho: Pretty much.

Teresa Lisbon: Minelli says we can go in. The warrant's on its way.
[Jane starts working on the door]
Teresa Lisbon: Let's do this.
Kimball Cho: Bet you can't do it in five.
[Jane opens the door]
Kimball Cho: Never mind.

Tamzin Dove: Killing spells are secret. But this is a public binding spell and it's similar. What's your name?
Kimball Cho: What's it to you?
Patrick Jane: Kendall Cho.
Kimball Cho: Hey!

Patrick Jane: Life is a million to one. The universe is one big coincidence. Cosmically improbable coincidences happen all the time. We just don't notice them all.
Kimball Cho: Or she's a witch.

"The Mentalist: Bleeding Heart (#2.12)" (2010)
Kimball Cho: So you're ambitious. How long you been doing the news here?

Kimball Cho: So you're ambitious, but you haven't gotten very far.

Brenda Shettrick: Agent Cho?
Kimball Cho: Yeah?
Brenda Shettrick: It is the specific request of the Deputy AG that your unit cooperate fully with the media.
Kimball Cho: What's your point?

Wayne Rigsby: What would Jane want us to do in this situation, Cho? With his life in jeopardy.

Wayne Rigsby: Yep. Okay. I guess we have to go...
[Rigsby closes the blinds, and locks the door]
Wayne Rigsby: ...there.
Kimball Cho: [Cho uncuffs Henrick] We should call an ambulance. It's procedure.

Wayne Rigsby: Yeah, your should be more careful, Henrik.

Patrick Jane: Well, it's a big secret, well kept.
Wayne Rigsby: Maybe you knew, but nobody else did.
Kimball Cho: I knew. Half the building knows.
Wayne Rigsby: They do not!
Kimball Cho: Yes they do.
Patrick Jane: The only person who didn't know is glaring at you right now.
Teresa Lisbon: *Now* I have to do something about it.

Mike Brewster: You don't like being asked questions, do you? The team as a whole seems to have a problem with that.
Kimball Cho: Is that a question?

"The Mentalist: 18-5-4 (#2.21)" (2010)
Kimball Cho: That's a high end sensor lock. It's gonna be tough to bust into. I'll call tech services. Tell them we need a locksmith.
Teresa Lisbon: [Finding the victim's severed finger] Uh, don't bother. I found a key.
Kimball Cho: No, this type of safe doesn't use a key.
Teresa Lisbon: [Lisbon puts the finger on the sensor] Oh yes it does.
[Lisbon gives the finger to Van Pelt]
Teresa Lisbon: Bag it.

Adrian Mosca: [Opening his apartment door just a crack] Uh sure. CBI? No problem. Uh look, I'm in my skivies. So uh, give me a second to get presentable okay?
[Closes his door]
Kimball Cho: Think he's going to put his pants on before he hits the window?
Wayne Rigsby: No, I do not.

Adrian Mosca: Who are you guys?
Wayne Rigsby: Remember the badge? CBI.
Adrian Mosca: Who the Hell is that?
Kimball Cho: California Bureau of Investigation.
Adrian Mosca: What the Hell is that?
Kimball Cho: We're like the FBI only more convinently located.

Kimball Cho: We showed you our badges and identified ourselves.
Adrian Mosca: You never watch movies? That's how the bad guys do it.
Kimball Cho: No, it's not. Sit down.

Kimball Cho: You should tell the truth Mr. Mosca. It's easier to remember.

"The Mentalist: Scarlett Fever (#1.15)" (2009)
Wayne Rigsby: What do you think about older women?
Kimball Cho: Where's that coming from? I don't think about older women. My mother's an older woman.
Wayne Rigsby: Not old old, but you know... older. Older than you.
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: Not bad. Your delivery was a bit wooden.
Kimball Cho: Wooden? Me? Yeah, and you're Marlon Brando.

Kimball Cho: [as Rigsby is looking at some lipstick] If you're thinking of trying that on, don't! Not your shade.

Kimball Cho: What's in the sandwich?
Wayne Rigsby: It's a Panini if you don't mind... It's uh, ham and cheese.
[Takes a bite]
Kimball Cho: And who knows what else.
[Rigsby spits it out]

Wayne Rigsby: No detectable prints on the knife.
Teresa Lisbon: Surveillance tapes?
Kimball Cho: Spa didn't believe in them. Something about disturbing the "chi".

"The Mentalist: Red Menace (#2.4)" (2009)
Kimball Cho: [On the phone] Well, the DA says to stay away from them. They're bad news.
Teresa Lisbon: Good sound lawyerly advice. I'll take that under advisement.
[Ends the call. Then to Jane]
Teresa Lisbon: Ready?

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.

Wayne Rigsby: [at the victim's office] Jimmy locks on the doorknob.
Kimball Cho: I doubt that was part of the original decor.

Wayne Rigsby: [the victim's office has been trashed] Think they were looking for something or just trying to send a message?
Kimball Cho: Message was definitely a part of it.
[he closes the office door, revealing "Burn In Hell" painted on the back]

"The Mentalist: Bloodshot (#1.16)" (2009)
Kimball Cho: How do you stalk a chicken?

Kimball Cho: How is he?
Teresa Lisbon: Guess what, he's a bad patient.
Patrick Jane: I'm not a bad patient. She's a bad visitor.

Teresa Lisbon: I'll do worse if you don't stop mouthing off to people who are trying to help you!
Patrick Jane: Pinched me!
Kimball Cho: How is he?
Teresa Lisbon: Guess what? He's a bad patient.
Kimball Cho: Who'd have thought.
Patrick Jane: I'm not a bad patient, she's a bad visitor.

Kimball Cho: The victim is James Medina, 44. Stockbroker out of Highland. The van wasn't his; it was reported stolen yesterday. We're digging up everything we can on Medina. A question is it possible he was on some bizarre suicide mission?
Patrick Jane: No. I looked in his eyes. It was very much a man who didn't want to be where he was. Whoever did this wanted me to watch James Medina die in terror.
Kimball Cho: And nearly killed you, too.
Patrick Jane: Well, that wasn't the intention, no.
Teresa Lisbon: Well, what, then?
Patrick Jane: "Ur next" was written on the man's forehead.
Teresa Lisbon: Why?
Patrick Jane: I don't know why.

"The Mentalist: Redemption (#2.1)" (2009)
Teresa Lisbon: What are you doing?... You're leaving?
Patrick Jane: Well, frankly, if I can't use this job to seek some kind of personal revenge, then uh, there's no a whole lot for me here. I think that - I don't make things better. I - I can't bring dead people back to life. What good do we do? We drive around California visiting unhappy people.
Grace Van Pelt: We're fighting evil and injustice.
Patrick Jane: And how's that going? Any progress lately?
Kendall Cho: We put bad guys where they can't hurt people. That's good enough.

Wayne Rigsby: See, I don't think partners should have secrets. But your call.
Kendall Cho: Like you don't have any secrets.
Wayne Rigsby: What's that supposed to mean?
Kendall Cho: You know what I mean.

Patrick Jane: [Reading "The Fax Machine Revolution"] This guy predicted that by the year 2000, every American household would have a fax machine. Can you believe it? I had a fax machine. You?
Kendall Cho: Yeah.
Patrick Jane: Wow. Nostradamus of office equipment.

Eric Blair: What are you doing here, Kimball? Is there a problem?
Kendall Cho: It's an ongoing investigation, sir. We can't give out any details.
Patrick Jane: Grisly homicide, though.

"The Mentalist: Redacted (#3.20)" (2011)
Teresa Lisbon: What's going on with you? You've been acting strange since this case started.
Patrick Jane: Strange?
[Jane chuckles]
Patrick Jane: Strange how? Strange like
[Jane makes a strange sound]
Patrick Jane: Or
[Jane acts strange. Cho enters]
Kimball Cho: Boss, Rigsby's
[Cho pauses slightly noticing Jane's behavior]
Kimball Cho: got something.

Wayne Rigsby: Okay, I need you to keep him on the phone for at least two minutes.
Patrick Jane: [Jane answers the phone] Hi. This is Patrick Jane. Listen I know who you are.
Omar Hassan: SHUT UP! I am coming to get you! I don't know who you are, but I will make you pay for this!
Patrick Jane: No. You shut up! You listen to me. I know what you want, and the only way you're going to get it is to meet me in person. We've got something to settle here. Outside the repair shop in one hour. You be there, you get what you want. If you don't, you'll never see it again. Simple as that!
[Jane ends the call. Lisbon groans]
Kimball Cho: What was that?
Wayne Rigsby: I said two minutes! That was hardly thirty seconds.
Patrick Jane: I just thought it would be simpler to bring him to us. It's okay. Thank me later. Now the strangeness we were talking about.
Teresa Lisbon: Never mind.

Heather Blue: Where is it?
[She follows Patrick]
Patrick Jane: You're standing on top of it
Heather Blue: Under the carpet?
Patrick Jane: It is the carpet, touch it pure silk
Heather Blue: [feels the carpet] It looks so old
Patrick Jane: It's very old, I've got to call this in
Heather Blue: Wait, if you do call it in, legal mess would never sort this out, it'd probably end up locked away in some government locker
Patrick Jane: Probably?
Heather Blue: What if we take it?
Patrick Jane: You want us to take the carpet, sell it and divide the profits between us
Patrick Jane: that's a great idea, 50/50 split
Heather Blue: 50/50 split
Patrick Jane: [They shake hands] What did Fisher say when you suggested that to him?
Heather Blue: Fisher was a soft headed fool
Patrick Jane: [walks away] Oh, so Heather you knew about the money, you knew he was never in the Peace Corp?
Heather Blue: I never said that
Patrick Jane: No, No, No, he told you about the money, he told you about his identity and you shot him
[turns his back]
Patrick Jane: I need to call this in, Lisbon will be very happy to know
[Heather draws a gun]
Patrick Jane: Are you pointing a gun at me?
[Turns around with his phone in an almost open hand]
Heather Blue: Teddy was not who he said he was, the man I loved was in the Peace Corp, he was going to save the world then I found out he was a soldier, he was a killer!
Patrick Jane: So you shot him, that's a little counter tuitive?
Heather Blue: You don't understand, you can only see things from your boudoir government minds, do you know how much good we could do with all that money, how many animal shelters we could save! When I told him, he talked to me like I was some sort of criminal
Patrick Jane: Well you are
Heather Blue: No, blessed is what I am, the universe wants me to have this money, I'm sorry, I have to kill you now but I'm doing it from a place of love
Kimball Cho: [enters] Freeze! Drop your weapon!
Heather Blue: [dropping the gun] Wow!

Heather Blue: Where is it?
[She follows Patrick]
Patrick Jane: You're standing on top of it
Heather Blue: Under the carpet?
Patrick Jane: It is the carpet, touch it pure silk
Heather Blue: [feels the carpet] It looks so old

"The Mentalist: Blood Brothers (#1.22)" (2009)
Marshall Winston: How am I supposed to know who you are? You're bangin' on my doors, "CBI! CBI!" Like that's supposed to mean somethin'?
Kimball Cho: Yeah, we do need better brand awareness.

Kimball Cho: No. This is like Spring Break Cancun compared to juvie.
Wayne Rigsby: Wait. You were in Juvenile Hall? Seriously?
Kimball Cho: Yeah. Didn't you read my file?
Wayne Rigsby: No. Did you read mine?
Kimball Cho: Of course.

Grace Van Pelt: [Rigsby's soaking and half dressed] What happened to you?
Kimball Cho: Old age.
Wayne Rigsby: Shut up you. What are you doing here?
Grace Van Pelt: Gee, thanks for the welcome.

Wayne Rigsby: So what does it say?
Kimball Cho: What?
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?
Kimball Cho: Kidding.

"The Mentalist: A Dozen Red Roses (#1.19)" (2009)
Kimball Cho: I could arrest you for that.
Patrick Jane: You'll never take me alive, copper.
Kimball Cho: Seriously.
Patrick Jane: Seriously. It's Marilyn and Charlie. What? Do you want to make a comedy arrest? See your name written in the weird news section?

Kimball Cho: So what do you know, Mitch?
Mitch Cavanaugh: Nothing.
Kimball Cho: Jane says you know stuff.
Mitch Cavanaugh: And he's always right, is he?
Kimball Cho: Pretty much.

Kimball Cho: Where were you going when you found the victim?
Charlie Chaplin: I don't speak.
Kimball Cho: In the movies, no. But here in the real world, you speak. You just did.

Kimball Cho: What is your work?
Marilyn Monroe: [gesturing to her outfit] I'm Marilyn.
Kimball Cho: How's that your work?

"The Mentalist: Ring Around the Rosie (#4.4)" (2011)
Kimball Cho: [about Tibbs's concealed weapons license] These aren't easy to come by. You have to demonstrate a need.
Henry Tibbs: I'm a Texas man. That's my need. Met a local sheriff who sympathized. Hook 'em horns.

Luther Wainwright: We'll arrest Henry Tibbs on a felony weapons charge, then we can insist on counseling.
Kimball Cho: What happens in a couple months when he hits the streets?
Luther Wainwright: He reports to parole.
Grace Van Pelt: We all know who effective that is.

Kimball Cho: [Casually walking to Tibbs] Hey. How you doing? You're under arrest for the attempted murder of... everybody. Turn around. Put your hands on your head.

"The Mentalist: Red Hair and Silver Tape (#1.2)" (2008)
Patrick Jane: Give me a minute with her. She's got a super low threshold.
Kimball Cho: No. Nope.
Patrick Jane: Just stand in the doorway. Pretend your making a phone call for a moment.
Kimball Cho: No. It's illegal and it's unprofessional.
Patrick Jane: That's why I need you to stand in the doorway.
Kimball Cho: ...One minute.

Patrick Jane: Yes, I did hypnotize her but...
Teresa Lisbon: But nothing! It's unprofessional and it's illegal!
Kimball Cho: That's what I told him.
Patrick Jane: I was going to say you had nothing to do with it. But hey -
[Jane leaves. Cho starts to walk, Lisbon stops Cho]
Teresa Lisbon: You allow him to pull that stuff again, and you'll be showing visitors around the Statehouse in a stupid hat.
Kimball Cho: Yes, ma'am. Understood.

Kimball Cho: Why a sexual motive? Could be gangs or drugs.
Patrick Jane: A drug-trade smothering? By who, the Sesame Street Crips?

"The Mentalist: Blood Money (#2.19)" (2010)
Patrick Jane: You know, I could be my own lawyer.
Kimball Cho: You're going to represent yourself? You represent yourself, you're an idiot.
Patrick Jane: Uh, actually, it's "He who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client". It's much catchier. Could be fun, Cho.

Kimball Cho: Hypnosis? Great plan.
Patrick Jane: No, that would be silly. Hypnosis is illegal. That was a misdirect so that I could search his jacket pockets, and find this.
Kimball Cho: [Jane opens his hand] A button, fluff, and some sand?
Patrick Jane: Yeah. It's a little anticlimactic Um... do you have an evidence baggie?
Kimball Cho: [standing to leave] You're walking home.

Wayne Rigsby: So, Sylvan's financials are clean. There's just one thing I don't get. The end of every month, he withdraws just over two grand in cash. He has no family, no girlfriend.
Kimball Cho: Sounds like rent.
Wayne Rigsby: His apartment's only $900 and he writes a check for that.
Kimball Cho: No, not his apartment. His home. A place to store his tools, process his victims, keep his trophies.
Wayne Rigsby: A murder house. And if he's paying cash, it's a fair bet that the name Cale Sylvan won't be on the lease. That place could be anywhere.
Grace Van Pelt: Well, maybe I can narrow it a little. Look at this. This is from the Sylvan murder video. The bag he's holding, it's from Ab's Gym. We show his picture around the gym, maybe we find someone that knows his other address.
Wayne Rigsby: There's a dozen Ab's Gyms around here. It'll take days to canvass them.
Kimball Cho: Ah, hell, start with the ones by the river. The sand Jane found in Sylvan's pockets, it's river sand, not ocean sand.
Wayne Rigsby: How'd you know?
Kimball Cho: We're in Sacramento. We got a river, not an ocean.

"The Mentalist: White Orchids (#7.13)" (2015)
Kimball Cho: What's up?
Jason Wylie: Some surprise, huh? I didn't see the wedding thing coming.
Kimball Cho: Wasn't that hard to guess
[Awkward silence]
Kimball Cho: Something on your mind?
Jason Wylie: No
[Cho looks at him]
Jason Wylie: Actually, yes. Someone might get in touch with you about me requesting a transfer. I just wanted you to hear it from me first.
Kimball Cho: Transfer where?
Jason Wylie: Salt Lake. Office there is starting a cyber crime initiative. It's desk work, but... more my speed, I think.
Jason Wylie: Let's face it, I didn't do that well when we were going after Keller. It's not easy being in the bullpen, Michelle's desk is right there, and... anyway, I think a change of pace will be good. Plus, you're going to be rebuilding the team, this'll pretty much give you a blank slate.
Kimball Cho: Come here.
Jason Wylie: What?
Kimball Cho: Come here.
[Wiley crosses the room to stand next to Cho. Cho smacks him round the back of the head]
Jason Wylie: Ow!
Kimball Cho: Stop feeling sorry for yourself.
Jason Wylie: I'm not!
Kimball Cho: You are. You made some mistakes going after Keller? Welcome to the club. I bat 300 on a good day. You miss Vega? Then remember who she was. She'd never run from a challenge like this and neither should you.
Kimball Cho: And you're right, I have to rebuild the team, and I want to start with people that I know and trust. So stick around.
Jason Wylie: Or what, you'll hit me again?
Kimball Cho: I'm asking you to stay, Wylie.

Teresa Lisbon: Hey! Did Abbott give you the news? We're having a real wedding at his house.
Kimball Cho: He did.
Teresa Lisbon: You're gonna be there, right?
Kimball Cho: Of course.
Teresa Lisbon: I could use your help with something, if you're not too busy.
Kimball Cho: What's that?
Teresa Lisbon: [Cut to a wedding parlour, where Lisbon is trying on dresses. She stares at her reflection uncertainly] What do you think?
Kimball Cho: Makes you look short.
Kimball Cho: [Lisbon disappears and reappears in another dress. Cho considers] Snowcone.
Kimball Cho: [She tries on another dress; this one, short, sparkly and very revealing] Slutty elf.
[She gives him a despairing look]
Kimball Cho: You want a simple piece with clean lines, maybe something vintage and off-white.
Teresa Lisbon: [to the shop assistant] What he said.
[the assistant leaves]
Teresa Lisbon: Thank you for doing this. I asked you along cos I thought you'd be honest. I had no idea you were such a fashion expert.
Kimball Cho: Not me. My mom could run up a designer gown before breakfast. Cut her cloth by eye.
Teresa Lisbon: Cool. My mom had a sewing machine, but it was always in hock.
Kimball Cho: She'd be very proud of you.
Teresa Lisbon: [Indicating her 'slutty elf' dress] Looking like this?
Kimball Cho: Very proud.
Teresa Lisbon: Thank you, Kimball.

Kimball Cho: We have to assume that Keller is alive and looking for Jane. How many agents are you gonna have at their wedding?
Dennis Abbott: Four, but now I think we should probably have more.
Kimball Cho: At least ten. We're gonna need eyes on the front and back yards, and the surrounding neighbourhoods. We should have a chopper on standby in case we need to pursue.
Rick Tork: Yes, sir. But... wouldn't it be wiser to just... postpone the wedding?
Kimball Cho: [Cho and Abbott both stare at Tork] Postpone the wedding? We're the FBI.
Rick Tork: There is that upside. We can use the wedding as bait. Kinda.
[Cho and Abbott continue to stare at him]
Rick Tork: ... I'm gonna go check on that chopper.

Kim Fischer: [about Jane] He made fools of us.
Kimball Cho: It won't be the last time.

Kimball Cho: What are you doing?
Jason Wylie: Waiting for you.
Kimball Cho: To do what?
Jason Wylie: Notice me.
Kimball Cho: Who are you?
Jason Wylie: Jason Wylie.Uh, junior I.T. analyst. I work in I.T. Analyzing stuff.
Kimball Cho: What do you want, Jason?
Jason Wylie: Uh, we were told to focus I.T. support on the Schneiderman case, but I'm my own man at lunch, right?
[laughs nervously]
Jason Wylie: So I stole some satellite time to hunt for Patrick Jane. Look what I found.
[There is a spray-painted arrow with "Jane" written after it]
Kimball Cho: This was taken from a satellite over Brooklyn?
Jason Wylie: You think it's really Jane? It's not a trick?
Kimball Cho: That's Jane.

Jason Wylie: I can't believe they gave me a desk.
Jason Wylie: You can call me "The Coyote".
Kimball Cho: I don't think so.
Jason Wylie: That's just what they call me downstairs. Don't ask me why, though. They never told me.
[laughs again]
Kimball Cho: Your name's Wylie.
Jason Wylie: Yeah.
Kimball Cho: Wile e. Coyote. "Road Runner", the cartoon?
Jason Wylie: [Not getting it] No, it's Irish, I think.

Teresa Lisbon: Go to Galatin. Take Van Pelt with you.
Kimball Cho: Ok.
[Cho leaves]
Teresa Lisbon: You - go to Hell. Take a toothbrush.
Patrick Jane: Which way is that?
[Lisbon glares at him]
Patrick Jane: I'll go.

Terence Badali: I panicked. As soon as you told me they were dead. I knew you were gonna blame me. And my brain said just run.
Kimball Cho: Your brain's a fool.

Kimball Cho: Terence Badali? CBI. I need to talk to you about Jana Vickers.
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.
Terence Badali: How do you know it was me?
Grace Van Pelt: 'Cause an innocent person would say "I didn't do it."

"The Mentalist: The Scarlet Letter (#2.2)" (2009)
Kimball Cho: If she's a jumper, job's done.
Wayne Rigsby: Yeah. The senator's husband dumps her, she wants to make him feel bad
[Rigsby whistles]
Wayne Rigsby: splat.
Grace Van Pelt: Don't talk that way.
Wayne Rigsby: Okay not splat, bam.

Wayne Rigsby: If I had a date, I'd tell you about it.
Kimball Cho: Yeah.
Wayne Rigsby: I would. Tell you anything you'd want to know.
Kimball Cho: You ever gonna man up and make a move on Van Pelt?
Wayne Rigsby: Fine! Don't tell me.

Wayne Rigsby: You've any plans for tonight?
Grace Van Pelt: Home, TV.
Wayne Rigsby: Well, have fun.
Grace Van Pelt: You too.
[walks off]
Kimball Cho: You're gonna die alone

"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.

Teresa Lisbon: Cho and I have a trial meeting with Deputy AG.
Kimball Cho: Not if I throw myself into oncomin traffic first.

[the team is looking at old articles about Lisbon]
Grace Van Pelt: Look, another one, Lisbon was like a rock star for awhile.
Kimball Cho: What's with her hair?

"The Mentalist: Blue Bird (#6.22)" (2014)
Kimball Cho: [about Lisbon] It's weird how mad she got. I mean, Jane's pulled way worse stunts than this. He buried a man alive once.
Dennis Abbott: Really?
Kimball Cho: She wasn't nearly as angry as this.

Dennis Abbott: He stood in my office, looked me in the eye, and lied to me, and I bought it.
Kimball Cho: Don't feel bad. Jane could sell cats to mice.

Dennis Abbott: Oh, speak of the devil, a text from Jane. "Soz". Soz?
Kimball Cho: SOS!

"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.

Delinda Lecure: I should have stayed. I should have tried to help him.
Kimball Cho: You do what's right for you, okay?

Patrick Jane: Pick a card.
Wayne Rigsby: [picking a card] That one.
Patrick Jane: Memorize it.
[Rigby studies the card, then returns it to the deck]
Patrick Jane: [studying Rigsby's face] Jack of diamonds.
Wayne Rigsby: Nope.
Patrick Jane: Huh. Are you sure?
Wayne Rigsby: Yep.
Patrick Jane: Well, uh... Cho?
Kimball Cho: It's a card trick. Not interested.

"The Mentalist: Russet Potatoes (#1.18)" (2009)
Patrick Jane: You honestly don't remember?
Wayne Rigsby: Don't remember what?
Kimball Cho: He remembers.
Teresa Lisbon: He *so* remembers.

Patrick Jane: [Rigsby is hypnotised but Lisbon doesn't believe it] Deeply hypnotised subjects are very suggestible and have very little inhibition. Rigsby, do me a favour. Close your eyes
[Rigsby looks doubtful]
Patrick Jane: Please?
[Rigsby closes his eyes]
Patrick Jane: Now, relax. Don't tell me but think about it. Think about what you most wanna be doing right now. You can do anything you like in the whole room.
[Van Pelt begins to look uncomfortable]
Patrick Jane: What are you gonna do? Now I want you to open your eyes and do it. Do whatever you like.
[Rigsby opens his eyes. He looks around and chuckles. Van Pelt turns and moves away. Rigsby gets up, follows her, pulls her into his arms and kisses her passionately while the others look on]
Patrick Jane: Now that's what I'm talking about.
Kimball Cho: Huh.
Teresa Lisbon: OK, he's hypnotised.

Teresa Lisbon: We need to question everybody Rigsby interviewed at the NLP Center, and anyone else he talked to.
Kimball Cho: It has to be Dr. Daniel, right? He's the only one with the chops to do this.
Teresa Lisbon: Plus, he lied about sleeping with the victim.
Patrick Jane: No, no. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Why would he want Rigsby to smack his own face into a table?
Kimball Cho: Although, why would anyone else want Rigsby to smack Daniel's face into a table?
Patrick Jane: My guess? The smacking of the face into the table, unintended side effect of a deeper hypnotic command.
Teresa Lisbon: Command to do what?
Patrick Jane: There's the rub. Let's find out.

"The Mentalist: Pretty Red Balloon (#4.3)" (2011)
Kimball Cho: You wanted Connor dead. You grabbed him and then made it look like a child murderer did it. Which part are we misunderstanding?

Jonathan Flint: I was going to bring him *back*!
Kimball Cho: So what was the knife for?
Jonathan Flint: I... I didn't...
Teresa Lisbon: Planning is easy. Reality is a bit harder.

"The Mentalist: Little Red Book (#4.2)" (2011)
CBI Agent Ray Haffner: I read Jane's file. I know what's going to happen. He's gonna go behind my back. Lie to me. Run a scam on me, right?
Kimball Cho: Pretty much.

Teresa Lisbon: Let me get this straight: Haffner has the address book, but it's a fake.
Patrick Jane: Fake as a three dollar bill.
Teresa Lisbon: And then how did he find it in Kuzmenko's house?
Patrick Jane: Well, I copied the names from the list of Kuzmenko's clients, then I put the book where Haffner would find it.
Kimball Cho: And I told Haffner that Jane thought the address book was at the house. So he went to the house.
Teresa Lisbon: Why?
Patrick Jane: Haffner's all about surveillance. I knew he'd be following us; I had to do something to throw him off the scent. Now we can solve the case without Haffner looking over our shoulders.
Teresa Lisbon: No. No, no, no
Patrick Jane: Don't be hasty.
Teresa Lisbon: I will deal with you in a minute.

Wayne Rigsby: What do you think of these dating services anyway?
Kimball Cho: No then yes.
Wayne Rigsby: What?
Kimball Cho: No, I've never used one. And yes, you should.
Wayne Rigsby: What? Because you're cool and I'm not?
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.

Kimball Cho: [Into his cellphone] This is Special Agent Cho. We've got agents down, on the fifth floor. Yes, inside the building! We are on lockdown on my authority. I have three agents down. I need EMT's. Roll SWAT, SAC PD, and CHP. And have them set up a perimeter. Suspects may still be here. JUST LOCK THIS PLACE DOWN!

Kimball Cho: We found the missing Red John victim.
Patrick Jane: Better still. This is Red John's mistake. This is it!

Kim Fischer: You ever wonder what Jane thinks about it?
Kimball Cho: Never.
Kim Fischer: Really, why not?
Kimball Cho: My brain would explode.

Dennis Abbott: We believe that David Ronaldo was murdered because he had evidence that would clear Luis Cruz. We need to find out what that was. And because they're going to execute Cruz in about...
[Checks watch]
Dennis Abbott: ...50 hours, we should hurry up.
Kim Fischer: Boss, is there any evidence that the cops or the prosecutors made a mistake?
Dennis Abbott: Not that I can point to.
Kim Fischer: And this case was fully appealed, right?
Dennis Abbott: Yes.
Kim Fischer: Then can I ask why we're taking this on? I don't want to sound cold, but it seems to me that the system did what it was supposed to do.
Patrick Jane: No, it didn't. Because Luis Cruz is innocent.
Kim Fischer: You're absolutely certain of that?
Patrick Jane: Well, I'm not absolutely certain of anything. But I'm confident enough to know that I'd like to try and help.
Kimball Cho: That's good enough for me.
Teresa Lisbon: Me too.
Kim Fischer: Okay. Let's do it.
Dennis Abbott: Fischer, Cho, work Ronaldo. Go to his apartment, see if you can find anything. I'll call the governor's office and let him know what we're up to. Jane, Lisbon, talk to the Feinbergs. Wylie... just keep letting us know what time it is.

Keith Wolcutt: Are you sure Agent Cho? Because I can make one phone call and your career is toast.
Kimball Cho: That's impressive. The best I can get with one call is a pizza.

Kimball Cho: Are you aware that on the night of her murder your wife was meeting a lover?
Keith Wolcutt: Yes. The local authorities told me they had suspected as much.
Kimball Cho: Did you know she had a lover, prior to the other night?
Keith Wolcutt: No. Do you have a name... is he a suspect?
Kimball Cho: We have a name. He's not a suspect.
Keith Wolcutt: Who is he?
Kimball Cho: I'm not at liberty to say.
Keith Wolcutt: I want his name.

Kimball Cho: That's impressive. The best I can get with one call is a pizza.

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.

Arliss St. Germain: We eat together. We work together. We're comrades.

Kimball Cho: Something to add Ms Diaz?
Hannah Diaz: Dude, if we're such comrades, why'd you try and steal Jeff's Sous Chef?

"The Mentalist: Throwing Fire (#2.10)" (2009)
Teresa Lisbon: Do you know who the killer is?
Patrick Jane: What do you think?
Teresa Lisbon: I think you said "What do you think" to make me think you do so I'll go with you, but you really don't.
Patrick Jane: Cho?
Kimball Cho: Baseball bat, Baseball Academy, that's not common sense.
Kimball Cho: Great. We'll all go.

[Jane has just regained consciousness after being hit in the head with a baseball]
Patrick Jane: Wow. I've never caught a foul ball before.
Teresa Lisbon: Technically, you still haven't. Cho, you take him.
Patrick Jane: Oh, no, no. I'm fine.
Kimball Cho: [holds up 3 fingers] How many fingers?
Patrick Jane: Six. Haven't we got a murder to solve?
Teresa Lisbon: You were unconscious.

Patrick Jane: Was not!

Patrick Jane: Your turn.

"The Mentalist: The Blood on His Hands (#3.3)" (2010)
Teresa Lisbon: You seen Jane?
Kimball Cho: Yeah. He's upstairs. Vander Hoeck took him there to see Celia's room.
Teresa Lisbon: Is he okay?
Kimball Cho: I guess. Why?
Teresa Lisbon: Nothing. Stiles just seems to get to him a little bit.
Kimball Cho: That's a nice trick.
Teresa Lisbon: Yeah, I wish he'd teach it to me.

Vigilance Guard #1: Do you seek the path to enlightenment?
Kimball Cho: No.

"The Mentalist: Carnelian, Inc. (#1.17)" (2009)
Kimball Cho: He's from the A.G.'s office. We're catching a hot one.
Patrick Jane: Hooray. I was about to go mad with boredom.
Grace Van Pelt: Don't say "hooray." Someone's died.
Patrick Jane: Well, if they have, my happiness makes no difference to them.

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.

Patrick Jane: Where were you guys?

Patrick Jane: No hard feelings.

Ben Machado: [as he's being arrested] I didn't know you were cops.
Kimball Cho: What? You thought we were selling magazine subscriptions?

"The Mentalist: Redline (#2.13)" (2010)
Teresa Lisbon: That's expensive, huh?
Kimball Cho: $300,000 retail. Probably get a discount now though.

Kimball Cho: I've got the client list here right here. It's evidence. What did you do that for?
Patrick Jane: I have eliminated this man from any suspicion. Too honest to profit from a killing, too honest to kill, right?
Salesman: Right.
[Cho leaves to break up all the fighting sales people. Jane stays behind with the last Salesman]
Patrick Jane: Unless, of course you're very cunning. And you're working a double bluff... No. I didn't think so.

"The Mentalist: The Red Mile (#3.18)" (2011)
Kimball Cho: Why did you tell Peregrine Hartley to lie to us, sir?
Nathan Vella: I didn't tell her to lie. I asked Peregrine not to raise certain irrelevant information.

Nathan Vella: $2.8 billon in assets. We're going down.
Kimball Cho: Why?
Nathan Vella: My partner thought he was kidnapped by little green men.
Kimball Cho: Grey.
Nathan Vella: What?
Kimball Cho: The little men. They're grey.

Kimball Cho: That's cool.
Wayne Rigsby: There's a man there. I think she's... you know.
Kimball Cho: Banging a homeless guy.
Wayne Rigsby: No! A volunteer. A chef. And she's not - I don't know... Not yet. Maybe. I think. I don't know... No.
Kimball Cho: Dude, you need counseling.

Jeb Haas: I didn't kill anybody. I never saw Foster and I never went into his house.
Kimball Cho: Nice if you could prove that.
Jeb Haas: I can't. But I do have some particular information on that evening. Information that you want.
Kimball Cho: Okay.
Jeb Haas: Uh-uh. Not I get a deal on the theft and the breaking and entering charges. A good one, too.
Kimball Cho: You want a deal? Okay. And just to be clear, is this a deal for the theft and B&E alone, or the tax evasion as well?
Jeb Haas: What?
Kimball Cho: According to your IRS records, you haven't filed a tax return since 2002. Unless you haven't earned a dime in income in seven years, you're facing some pretty serious tax evasion charges. Do you have any idea how much prison time that carries?
Jeb Haas: Prison time?
Kimball Cho: Serious time. Massive fines. I'm gonna let you think about it.
Jeb Haas: [Cho stands to leave] When I was loading stuff out of the poolhouse, I saw a car in the woods. A black BMW. There was somebody sitting in the driver's seat; Foster's wife.
Kimball Cho: Lilian Foster?
Jeb Haas: I've seen her in town. She sat there the whole time; she never even noticed me. She just... stared at the house.
Kimball Cho: Was she still there when you left?
Jeb Haas: Yes.
[Cho turns to leave again]
Jeb Haas: So you'll do something, I mean about the tax thing?
Kimball Cho: Don't worry. I was lying about that.

Tamsin Wade: Hey. Gang unit has a tip on a counterfeiting ring running out of a garage on west capitol. Rapid Response Team is up for the bust
Kimball Cho: Nice. Now?
Tamsin Wade: Roll call in 30. I squared it with your cute boss.
Kimball Cho: I'm in.
Wayne Rigsby: Uh, we have work to do.
Tamsin Wade: I'll have him back in a few hours, dad.
Wayne Rigsby: Look, if you're the Rapid Response Team, shouldn't you be sliding down fire poles, not hanging around here for 30 minutes?

Patrick Jane: I think this puzzle box is the key. Whatever is in here was important enough to hide, but not valuable enough to put in that safe.
Kimball Cho: What do you think it is?
Patrick Jane: I don't know yet, it's a puzzle.
Teresa Lisbon: Cho, crack it open.
Patrick Jane: [Pulls it away from them] Oh, no no no no. It's my puzzle. All mine.

Madeleine Hightower: Um, I heard you took a fall.
Teresa Lisbon: [Lisbon scoffs] I'm fine.
[Lisbon falls]
Teresa Lisbon: Ow! I'm fine.

Wes Attwood: Hey now, I didn't kill anybody. I mean, I'm a killer salesman, but I'm not a killer.

"The Mentalist: Red Tide (#1.3)" (2008)
Kimball Cho: You had the keys in your hand the whole time?
Patrick Jane: You gotta let it go man.
Kimball Cho: Did you have the keys in your hand?
Patrick Jane: If I tell you how it's done, the Magic Circle will send a team of assasins to kill us all. It's the law.

Kimball Cho: How is that relevant? Looking for someone who doesn't like orange rabbits.
Patrick Jane: Exactly. You know what boys, I like it here.
[Jane finds a spot on the beach]
Patrick Jane: Yeah. I think I'll stay.
Kimball Cho: What?
Patrick Jane: Yeah.
[Jane lies down]
Patrick Jane: Ahh.
Kimball Cho: [to Rigsby] Let's just leave him here.

"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.

Kimball Cho: [over the phone] Hey boss; we're about 5 minutes from your location.
Teresa Lisbon: Look, Cho; Jane and I have been exposed to the virus and it looks like we might die soon.
Kimball Cho: ...Okay.
Teresa Lisbon: I just wanted to thank you and Rigsby and Van Pelt. It has been an honor working with you. I need you to call my brother Tommy. His number is in my desk diary, it's under Town & Country Electrical. Tell him that I love him and that I forgive him for whatever. And he needs to make peace with his brothers; it's my last dying wish, you tell him that.
Kimball Cho: Will do.
[hangs up]
Patrick Jane: Oh, I actually wanted to talk to him too.
Teresa Lisbon: Sorry.
Patrick Jane: It was a fine farewell; I feared you'd become tearful and incoherent, but no. Strong. Noble. Bravo.
Teresa Lisbon: Ha-ha... don't you have anyone you wanna call besides Cho and Rigsby?
Patrick Jane: No; if I were dying, I'd want to call you, but you're already here, so there's no need.
Teresa Lisbon: Me? What would you say?
Patrick Jane: Meh.
Teresa Lisbon: Wha-wait a minute. If? If I was dying?
Patrick Jane: Yeah, you're not really dying, I took a label and put it on an empty flask and then convinced poor Lilith Nash to run away, which I thought was very...
Teresa Lisbon: You son of a bitch!

"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.

Security Guard: Uh, I need to see the warrant first though. It's uh, it's protocol.
Kimball Cho: There is no warrant. Ask me why.
Security Guard: Why?
Kimball Cho: Because every member of our unit is suspended because of this killing here and two other people we killed this week.
Security Guard: Wow. That's a rough week. I gues I can... run you off a copy.

"The Mentalist: The Thin Red Line (#1.8)" (2008)
Steve Preciado: This is *our* arrest. Always has been. We got no time to wait for your *mommy*!
Kimball Cho: Hey, there's always time. All right? Let's do this right. Go in too quickly and someone could get hurt.
Steve Preciado: This is *real* police work, sonny! People get hurt.

Teresa Lisbon: Yes, we get it. You're very calm and in control, Rick. For a man being questioned in a double murder investigation.
Rick Carris: I didn't do this thing. Although, I've been sitting in this chair so many times, this is kind of restful.
Kimball Cho: That's right, isn't it? Many times.

"The Mentalist: Rhapsody in Red (#3.22)" (2011)
Rick Meadowlark: What's up?
Kimball Cho: I'm Agent Cho. I'll take the kid off your hands.
Rick Meadowlark: What?
Kimball Cho: I made a mistake. Let's just forget I filed a report, okay?
Rick Meadowlark: [scoffs] Too late. Paperwork's been filed. It's my case now. Besides, it took me an hour to get here. I'm not going back empty-handed. Now... do you mind?
[Anthony sucker punches him and tries to run away]
Kimball Cho: [catching him] Hey, hey.
Rick Meadowlark: Give him to me.
Kimball Cho: Sorry, can't do that. He hit you. That's battery.
Rick Meadowlark: Are you kidding me?
Kimball Cho: I have to process him now. Paperwork.
Rick Meadowlark: Hold on.
Kimball Cho: [as the elevator doors close] Bye.
Rick Meadowlark: Hey! This is bull!
Anthony Rome: [Cho leads him away] What you doing, man?
Kimball Cho: Be quiet or I'll give you back.

D.D.A. Osvaldo Ardiles: We're dropping charges against Lawrence Rome.
Kimball Cho: I see.
D.D.A. Osvaldo Ardiles: Now, personally I think the alibi is bogus, but we had to interview the store owner again. Now he says, uh, maybe his ID was wrong. Maybe it wasn't Lawrence Rome. Whole thing's gone down the toilet. We had an agreement.
Kimball Cho: I agreed I shouldn't help. Didn't say I wouldn't.
D.D.A. Osvaldo Ardiles: From now on, you get nothing from the D.A.'s office. No favors, no help. Not just you, but every agent in this unit. You have screwed things for your people, my friend. Six months from now, Lawrence Rome'll be back inside for ripping off another liquor store, his kid'll be be back in foster care, and the South Side Mafia will be stronger than ever.
Kimball Cho: You're wrong.
D.D.A. Osvaldo Ardiles: You want to bet on that?

"The Mentalist: Red-Handed (#1.6)" (2008)
Kimball Cho: [Looking at the watch Jane gave him] Now that must be worth a lot of money, because it's the *ugliest* watch I've ever seen.

Kimball Cho: [about the gifts Jane gave to the team] I'm not giving mine back.
Wayne Rigsby: No way!
Patrick Jane: Tha't my boys. Live it up!

Rulon Farnes: It's not my fault I look like this.

Teresa Lisbon: Hey, Cho.
Kimball Cho: Hey.
Teresa Lisbon: You got a minute?
Kimball Cho: What's up?
Teresa Lisbon: I got offered a job... in DC.
Kimball Cho: [surprised] You gonna take it?
Teresa Lisbon: I don't know. Maybe. Don't tell anybody, all right?
Kimball Cho: Okay. It'd be a great move, though.
Teresa Lisbon: You think?
Kimball Cho: Absolutely. You remember the first day we worked together?
Teresa Lisbon: Sure.
Kimball Cho: I almost quit.
Teresa Lisbon: Really? Why?
Kimball Cho: Rigsby
[They both nearly laugh]
Kimball Cho: And then I saw the way yo worked. I knew I had to stay. I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for you. Whatever decision you make, it's been an honour.

Kimball Cho: You should buy.
Grace Van Pelt: So I can deal with a bank instead of a landlord? Big step up.

"The Mentalist: The Golden Hammer (#6.12)" (2014)
Patrick Jane: The point is there's a coded message here.
Kimball Cho: Or doodles.

Wayne Rigsby: So would you ever, uh... you know?
Kimball Cho: Pay for sex? No.
Wayne Rigsby: Yeah. It's weird right?
Kimball Cho: Weird, no. Expensive.

"The Mentalist: Black Helicopters (#6.13)" (2014)
Dennis Abbott: Jane is making a sincere effort to fit in.
Kim Fischer: No, he's not.
Dennis Abbott: Look at what he gave me yesterday.
[Shows her a robotic toy]
Kim Fischer: A robot.
Dennis Abbott: No, this is just not a robot. This is *Voltron*, okay? I used to love this when I was a kid.
Kim Fischer: He *ditched* me.
Dennis Abbott: That's not cool.
Kim Fischer: No, that is far, far from cool.
Dennis Abbott: Did Jane have something to say about it afterwards?
Kim Fischer: Who knows! He hasn't responded to my texts or my phone calls ever since. Where do we draw the line? How far do we bend for this man?
Kimball Cho: I just got off the phone with Jane. He says he needs a black helicopter, a convoy of vans, and whatever you have that looks most like a tank.

"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.

"The Mentalist: Bloodhounds (#3.12)" (2011)
Donald Beechum: Valerie was always thinking she saw me being too friendly with our female guests.
Grace Van Pelt: What did she see?
Donald Beechum: Me comforting them. Never discount the power of healing touch.
Kimball Cho: So how often are you healing homeless women around here?
Donald Beechum: Don't make it sound so sordid.
Grace Van Pelt: If there was nothing wrong, your wife would be standing here.

"The Mentalist: Forest Green (#6.18)" (2014)
Kimball Cho: I need you to do something for me.
Jason Wylie: Something shady for Jane?
Kimball Cho: Why do you ask?
Jason Wylie: Because people only talk to me like this when we're doing something shady for Jane.
Kimball Cho: I need you to create an electronic trail that makes it look like the FBI just released millions of dollars in frozen assets.
Jason Wylie: You mean a DNS hijacking?
[Gets a blank look]
Jason Wylie: When - when you go to a bank's website, it redirects you to a phony version of the same site. You can make it look like anything you want.
Kimball Cho: Yes - that.
[Slight pause]
Kimball Cho: And yes, it's for Jane.

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

"The Mentalist: Grey Water (#6.14)" (2014)
Teresa Lisbon: What do you think we should do?
Patrick Jane: I think we should trust our instincts.
Kimball Cho: You mean take a wild guess.
Patrick Jane: 80% of the time, a detective's first guess is right.
Kimball Cho: You just made that up.
Patrick Jane: And you knew that because your instincts told you.

"The Mentalist: A Price Above Rubies (#2.9)" (2009)
Kimball Cho: [at a fancy gala] Which one's ours?
Teresa Lisbon: The one that looks like she blows her nose with hundred dollar bills.
Kimball Cho: They all look like that.

"The Mentalist: Red All Over (#2.20)" (2010)
Kimball Cho: Creepy.
Patrick Jane: What? You don't like giant eyeballs?

"The Mentalist: Red Bulls (#2.7)" (2009)
Kimball Cho: Bosco's team calls us "Bert and Ernie."
Wayne Rigsby: You knew that, and you didn't say anything?
Kimball Cho: I knew it'd bother you.
Wayne Rigsby: Doesn't bother you?
Kimball Cho: No. Ernie's the clever, handsome one.

"The Mentalist: Red Sky at Night (#3.1)" (2010)
Teresa Lisbon: Where is Mrs. Dublin?
Kimball Cho: Yeah, she cries a lot. Then she has to freshen her makeup. Then she cries again. Sort of a cycle.

"The Mentalist: Seeing Red (#1.7)" (2008)
Wayne Rigsby: All I'm saying, you can't say there's no such thing as a psychic just because you've never met one.
Kendall Cho: You're right. I've never seen a zebra, doesn't mean they don't exist.
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?

"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.

"The Mentalist: Il Tavolo Bianco (#6.20)" (2014)
Patrick Jane: You're right-handed.
Daniela Welker: Uh, yes.
Patrick Jane: So, that heart on your hand, you didn't draw that?
Daniela Welker: Uh, no. They did.
Kimball Cho: Yeah, we don't know what that means. None of the other girls we rescued had that mark.
Daniela Welker: Guess I'm special.

"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 John's Footsteps (#1.23)" (2009)
Patrick Jane: Lisbon? Look.
Teresa Lisbon: Oh, damn.
Patrick Jane: Yeah.
Teresa Lisbon: No, it's... it's a coincidence.
Kimball Cho: That's what I said.
Patrick Jane: No. No such thing as a coincidence. Not with him.
Sheriff Hardy: What are you all talking about? Who's "him"?
Grace Van Pelt: Red John. He's a serial killer. This is his style of cutting.
Patrick Jane: Look at the toenails.
Teresa Lisbon: Yeah, I see them.
Patrick Jane: Painted in her own blood, just like my wife. This is Red John, and he wants to make sure I was on this case.

"The Mentalist: Pilot (#1.1)" (2008)
Kimball Cho: Mr. Randolph, rest assured there is no intent to persecute you. We scumbags are holding your brother because we have evidence linking him to the crime, and potential motive in that he states that whenever you weren't around, he was banging your wife like a big bass drum.

"The Mentalist: Ladies in Red (#1.4)" (2008)
Wayne Rigsby: I sent out the vibes. I got none back. Okay? So leave me alone

Teresa Lisbon: No. No. No. Don't!
Kimball Cho: Why not? It's his case.
Patrick Jane: We gotta get out of here now! Fix it with SAC PD we were never here.

"The Mentalist: Black Gold and Red Blood (#2.6)" (2009)
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: 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: The Crimson Ticket (#5.1)" (2012)
Kimball Cho: Do you have his client list?
Wayne Rigsby: Ya. You should see this thing: leaders of industry, royalty, Hollywood stars
Kimball Cho: We need to run them down
Wayne Rigsby: I'm all over it. Already have a call in to Clooney

"The Mentalist: Ball of Fire (#3.8)" (2010)
Kimball Cho: Go ahead.
Wayne Rigsby: What?
Kimball Cho: You always say something when O'Laughlin calls.
Wayne Rigsby: There's nothing to say. I'm over it.
Kimball Cho: Who are you and what have you done with Wayne Rigsby?

"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: Pink Chanel Suit (#3.6)" (2010)
Raymond tubbs: You don't understand there's *honor* among us race warriors. Loyalty. Brotherhood.
Kimball Cho: Yeah. Right.
Raymond tubbs: What do you mean "Yeah. Right?"
Kimball Cho: It means you're wasting my time. There are no arayan warriors out there awaiting your orders. You're a sad little man alone in box, living on delusions of grandieur.

"The Mentalist: War of the Roses (#4.15)" (2012)
Grace Van Pelt: You know kids used to call me Bracie Gracie because I wore braces until I was 17. What did people call you?
Kimball Cho: [Flat] Cho.

"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.
