[Mac looks confused] They flip the pillows to the cooler side! Mac Taylor: There are three things that I'll protect at any cost: the honor of this country, the safety of this city, and the integrity of this lab. Truth is, Aiden, I can't have someone like that working in this lab. Detective Aiden Burn: [handing over her badge] Truth is I can't do this anymore, Mac. If somethin' like this ever happened again, I don't think I'd trust myself. After a day or two, they turn a bluish-purple, that fades to green, and then as they heal they turn a yellowish-brown. There's enough in there to kill you, and make the cleaning crew very unhappy. Stella: What do normal people do when they can't sleep? First they're red, the color of the blood under the skin. Danny: Why do we wake up in the morning at three o'clock, stand at a crime scene in the freezing cold, living paycheck-to-paycheck, for what? Peyton: Mac, I was thinking with everything you've been going through and because you adore me, and you do adore me, it would be just great if you could take some of the seven weeks of vacation you've collected and, well, come with me to London. Should you manage to get out of that tape, or try to leave this room, or somebody tries to save you, these lasers which trigger the pipe bomb I connected to that canister of hydrogen gas. (Hands test tube to Danny)Mac: Holden surfaced right here in the harbor. I told you, I didn't want you to send me any more gifts, and I thought I made it perfectly clear that I was not interested.

Lindsay: Weaving together untanned hides to make reins for horses, lassos. Sid: [with the impaled hotel concierge] When I was an intern, they brought in a guy who had fallen off a loading dock onto a container of steel reinforcement rods. Stella Bonasera: [to Mac Taylor] This case is different. I mean I've seen this stuff listed on e Bay before, you know, and most of it isn't real, but if it is short of going to the moon they would have had to steal from NASA. Mac: (upset with an abusive dad) Right now I'd give a year's pay for two minutes alone in this room with you, but since that won't happen, I promise you this. Unless it was, like, the spirit of Imelda Marcos, but I don't even think she's dead. Grave Digger #1: Long ago when several coffins were excavated and scratches were found inside, our ancestors, they realized they’d been burying (snickering) folks before their time. Back then, when the plagues hit, guys like you and me, we couldn't dig fast enough.

I loved your statue it's so beautiful and I loved all the "I love you" messages, and I really meant to call you, I did. Sid: (to Sheldon and Mac about the victim) The rawness of the flesh indicates that she was alive during the beheading, but I, I bet she didn't feel a thing, she was probably unconscious. The highest I've ever registered was 0.23, but that was in celebration of my first divorce, and I fell down a flight of stairs, didn't feel a thing. And I have a vivid memory of that horrible moment when you realize the only way out is a bullet. Detective Mac Taylor: Sometimes you don't know what you're looking for until you find it. [he opens it] Our photographer's prints didn't match the print we found on the vic. And let me tell you something, cocaine from that raid wouldn't last six months on the street. You had to take everything down in your memo book - every detective who was there, who searched the room, who found the drugs. This stuff is illegal to have and somebody went through a lot of trouble to get it. I mean, come on, if this was a real ectoplasm, what's it doing shopping? What do you say we get outta here and go for a walk?

I was just sitting here wondering about, you know, what do they look like or what kind of lives do they live, you know?

Adam: There's also another six Adam Rosses and there's eighteen in New York state. I don't know about you, Mac but I can't live with that.

I was cleaning out the closet the other day and I found this beach ball. I never told anybody this, but I got rid of everything that reminded me of Claire; too painful.

A promise to handle that evidence with respect, integrity, and good faith.

In June 1995, deputy emir Hamad bin Khalifa deposed his father Khalifa bin Hamad in a bloodless coup.

In 1948, Standard Oil Company of New Jersey (which then took the name of Esso, and then of Exxon), and Socony-Vacuum Oil Company (the ancestor of Mobil) joined Aramco capital.

The show's character work is probably its strongest aspect, with multi-season arcs for several of the characters, particularly Mac, Danny, and Lindsay.

The cast is full of slightly messed up characters, all the way from Mac down to Adam.

There's a lot of people with worse stories than yours and they never hurt anyone. Danny Messer: [is trapped in a panic room until somebody can get him out] This is getting better and better, and I'm not spending a week in here with a crazy dead guy trying to figure the code, so do me a favour, call a locksmith. I wanna make it very clear that I am not a cop killer. (Lindsay stares at the floor) Don't tell me you don't feel it also. You're the reason I'm out of jail, indirectly, of course. Maybe we do it for the one or two times somebody actually thanks us for finding their son's murderer. Met this guy in an antique store and then bumped into him again at a coffee stand. Yeah, I would endure every one of my brothers' insults at the table for one more taste of that paradise. Sid: [chuckling] Oh, no, there’s no physical resemblance, although he was in freakishly superior shape for an octogenarian. You didn't spend ten years trying to make it up to your mother and your little brother, lying to little Andy about how Will died.
