Dr. Edward Auster: You solve every case you work on?
Detective Mike Logan: We can tell a felony from a traffic ticket.
Dr. Edward Auster: Look, a patient walks in with a headache. She could have a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a berry aneurysm, a retro-orbital tumor... or does she just have a headache? Do you give her an aspirin? Or do you saw open her skull?
Sgt. Max Greevey: You make this speech at funerals?
Executive A.D.A. Benjamin "Ben" Stone: You know the difference between Auster and a serial killer?
A.D.A. Paul Robinette: The weapon.
