Episode Quotes
Rosen: Good morning, everyone. I come bearing gifts.
Gary: Oh, let me open it.
Rosen: All right.
Nina: "Let me open it please."
Gary: No, I want to open it. Oh. Yeah. Let me open it, please.

Bill: Eggs, cheese, bacon, pancakes. You sure these folks around here didn't just die of heart failure?
Gary: Heart failure. Because of the food.
Nina: Maybe they were just bored to death.
Cameron: Hey, I grew up in a town like this.
Bill: Of course you did. Explains your name, Hicks.

Waitress: Can I get you anything else?
Gary: DCIS. You don't ask questions. We ask questions.
Rosen: Gary.
Gary: We ask and you tell.
Rosen: Gary, that's impolite.
Waitress: So you really are Feds.
Rosen: Put it away.
Waitress: I knew it. It's a serial killer, isn't it?
Gary: You tell us. Respect the badge.
Rosen: Gary...
Nina: Really.
Gary: Bill is laughing.

Rosen: His body continued to produce cortisol as rapidly as we could get rid of it.
Nina: Maybe David is pushed and it just keeps triggering him.
Gary: Yeah, maybe Nina's the killer. Ha. Are you the killer, Nina? It'd be a surprise.

Rosen: That said, how are you?
Rachel: We should have that printed up on t-shirts.
