Detective Lindsay Monroe: [to Vivian Claven] You know, bruises age in a very specific way. First they're red, the color of the blood underneath. A day later, they darken to a bluish-purple. Then they turn green, then they fade to a yellowish-brown. Yours is just black. Too black. Wipe it off!
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: You know I've never been fishing, never even thought about trying. Seems kind of boring.
Detective Danny Messer: Until you hook something. I went fishing with my old man once on a pier near Battery Park. I caught the sweetest striped bass, must have weighed close to thirty pounds.
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Did you eat it?
Detective Danny Messer: Threw it back! Would you eat anything that came out of the Hudson?
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Good point.
[Detective Monroe explains to Detective Taylor about trace evidence taken from victim]
Detective Lindsay Monroe: This gel was found on Harold Claven's neck...
[Taylor makes a face as Monroe smears some of the gel on him]
Det. Mac Taylor: Now it's on my lip. What is it?
Don Flack: [about playing the lottery] All it takes is a dollar and a dream.
