Numb3rs: Pilot

In the premiere episode, Don races to capture a serial rapist who has begun to murder his victims. Charlie is recruited by Don to help track the killer. He creates a mathematical equation to identify the killer’s point of origin by working back from the crime scene locations. Charlie’s obsession with the case leads him to seek the insight of his colleague, physicist Dr. Larry Fleinhardt. Meanwhile, their father, Alan, is pleased to see his sons working together but fears their competitive nature will lead to trouble.

Episode Quotes
Amita: Actually, I'm spoken for, Mr. Eppes. Back in Madras my parents arranged for marriage to a family friend. A nice Hindu banker from Goa.
Charlie: Really? Getting married...
Amita: God no, he's a total ass.

Charlie: Sorry I was busy working on something. I know I'm supposed to be going through some equations for you.
Larry: Yes, I had wondered if I had gotten the time wrong, or the place, or, uh, quite possibly, the dimension.

Larry: Professor Charles Edward Eppes.
Charlie: Larry.
Larry: So this is what distracts you from helping me, your friend, your colleague, win the Nobel prize for my eleven dimensional super-gravity theory?
