Todd Johnson: [to Jane and Lisbon] You can have all the jurisdiction you want. I swear to God, the man who did this will not live to see a court.
Sheriff Mullery: You didn't hear that.
Teresa Lisbon: There's no upside to taking the law into your own hands. Revenge truly doesn't work.
Patrick Jane: Well, that's just a sweeping statement, isn't it? I'm sure we all can think of examples where revenge has worked splendidly.
Teresa Lisbon: Thanks for your input.
Patrick Jane: Just saying.
Patrick Jane: A little hypocritical, if you're gonna lecture him on revenge, don't you think?
Teresa Lisbon: How's that?
Patrick Jane: Uh, all these years, you've been helping me seek revenge.
Teresa Lisbon: That's different.
Patrick Jane: ...How's that?
Teresa Lisbon: I'm in control of the situation.
Patrick Jane: Oh really?
Patrick Jane: I just assumed you took that judge and jury stuff with a grain of salt.
Teresa Lisbon: Well, you assumed wrong. No salt.
Patrick Jane: You know the reality will be different. Red John is mine. And I will exact my revenge on him.
Teresa Lisbon: I think when the time comes, you'll see that violence is not the answer.
Patrick Jane: Todd, you repeat what I tell you now, and I will deny every word of it. If you truly want revenge, you have to be hard. You have to be dishonest and devious and cold. You can't let people see what's in your heart.
Ellis Mars: The mind is a powerful weapon. It can create reality.
Patrick Jane: Ellis Mars is in room 21.
[Jane hands Todd a weapon and keys to the room]
Patrick Jane: Consider it a gift from a brother-in-arms. I hope someday someone will do the same for me.
Todd Johnson: Heh. You're messing with me.
Patrick Jane: No. I'll show you.
Todd Johnson: Ah. You say that only because you don't see the whole picture. There's a reason for everything I've done.
Patrick Jane: What's the big picture?
Todd Johnson: You'll never know.
Patrick Jane: Right. There's no big picture.
Todd Johnson: Oh, trust me. It would blow... your... mind.
[Pulls the trigger and realizes the gun isn't loaded]
Patrick Jane: No firing pin. Oops.
Todd Johnson: [Drops the gun, and pulls out a knife] Of course.
