Crews: Do I look like I tan?

Ted: What are you going to do next?
Crews: I am going to bring things that are hidden in the light.

Crews: Take it, it's not 'pervie' it's just an orange.

Reese: What do you think?
Crews: I think we need to talk to that kid, when his dad is not around.

Crews: What kind of father doesn't want his teenager to show interest in girls?
Reese: The kind with serious control issues.

Internal Affairs Agent:
I'll like to know why considering the side of the settlement you decided to return to the force ?
Crews: Because I am a good cop. Don't you think the city need good cops ?

Crews: I investigate things.
Internal Affairs Agent: What kind of things?
Crews: I investigate things to complete my knowledge. My complete knowledge make my thoughts sincere. My thoughts being sincere, my heart is pure.
Union Rep: Here we go. Reader's digest.
Crews: That's confucius. It's good though, isn't it?
Union Rep: Yea.
Crews: Don't you want a pure heart ? I know I do.

Crews: About your dad...

If I had your money, I would be on the beach somewhere. How come you are not on the beach somewhere ?

The things people do with their kid. Parent and children, cats and kitten, we are all cats.

Dani: Okay, I have to know. What with the fruit?
Charlie: Do you know what do we eat in prison ?
Dani: Crap?
Charlie: Crap. No fresh fruit. Ever. I missed it.
Dani: I don't think it'll be fruits I will be missing.
Charlie: Yes, you would.

(Reese hands up to Crews the knife she took few episodes earlier)
Charlie: I will try to use it for good, instead of evil.

Charlie: You are not going to be like anyone else.

Nate / Steven: So when do we take off?
Charlie: Oh, I don't know how to fly this thing.
