ADRIAN

Linden: "Hi. You are Adrian. I am Sarah, but you can call me Stranger Danger."
Adrian: "I remember you from that awesome day I no longer had to hang out with my mother's rotting headless corpse. How's it been going?"
Linden: "Not well, little Adrian. Not well at all. Can you tell me, though, more about these warehouses you added to your psycho drawings you keep drawing over and over. For they led me to a serial killer's dumping ground."
Adrian: "I want to see my father."
Linden: "A reasonable request, young man. You've been of no help as usual, but I shall see what I can do."

STAKEOUT

Reddick: "Did you know Valentine's Day is coming up?"
Holder: "I did not. For Linden has gotten all up in my head."
Reddick: "Jewel Staite is going to dump your ass."
Holder: "No doubt that's true. I'm more worried about Kallie Leeds at the moment."
Bullet: "ME TOO, MOTHERFUCKER! GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE CAR AND ANSWER FOR YOUR FUCKUPS!"

Bullet's point, and it's rather a valid one, is that she was promised Goldie would be taken off the streets, not put back on them. How she approaches it -- and there's a lesson we can learn from this -- is not at all helpful: By screaming at the cops outside Goldie's house, calling attention to the cops and calling them cops, she has invalidated their stakeout and the trail (which, if you know this show at all, never existed) has maybe gone cold.

On the other hand, continuing the romance of Bullet and Holder, Stephen finally starts noticing her crazy-eyes terror and all but asks her what happened with Goldie -- clearly she left some details out about the day she got stuck in his scary house over there, and he pretty much knows what they are at this point. His whole demeanor, his voice, everything softens; he seems to lose about a foot of height in a moment. But it's too late, and she goes spinning off into the crowd.

Bullet: "Touch me again and I will break your arm."
Stephen: "Just tell me what happened."
Bullet: "You? Want to help me?"
Stephen: "Yeah, I do."
Bullet: "Then do your job. Find her. Stop worrying about my shit."
Stephen: "That is not what I meant, but okay. Valid."

MORGUE

Coroner: "Did you see the huddled weeping masses outside this huge room full of dead naked autopsy children?"
