Rossi: Once a year on my birthday, I go visit this killer in prison. His idea, not mine, believe me. He's the only one who knows where the bodies are buried. He gives me a name, and I give a family some peace and closure. But every time I sit across from him, treating him like a human being, it takes something out of me. You can do something I can't do. I think that's why the brass tapped you for this project.
Lewis: It takes something out of me too. The scary thing is, sometimes I don't even notice it till long after it's gone.
Rossi: You know this job ain't all milk and honey. Some days you lose, some days you do things you don't want to do. So ask yourself this: where can you do the most good, and still do yourself the least harm? Then make your decision.

Franks: Why am I doing this? Same question the other girls asked. There's no cure for me. Alright? There's no cure for those guys over in Glenport Village either.
Riley: The other girls?
Franks: With the first ones....I was so impatient. I mean, the woman in Glenport was just too old. And Victoria....Victoria did it all wrong. But, uh, let's hope that you get it right.
Riley: I will. I will. Just....not here. Let's go to the bedroom.

Morgan: I'm surprised you took that shot.

Morgan: It's your first time. Are you all right?
Lewis: Yeah. I'm just tired.

Morgan: Lewis he was going to kill that little girl. You did what you had to do.
Lewis: Yeah. I know.
Morgan: Tomorrow's a new day.

Lewis: Look, Doug. These interviews with Ennis, these late nights, this is important work, alright? It's meaningful work. I am trying to take serial killer protocols to the next level.
Fuller: You're more interested in a guy who killed a bunch of little kids than you are in me.
Lewis: I have to be into the office first thing in the morning, so could we talk about this at dinner tomorrow?
Fuller: There's nothing more to talk about. I'm going back to San Francisco.
Lewis: What?
Fuller: My flight leaves tomorrow afternoon.
Lewis: And you're just announcing this?
Fuller: Things haven't been good with us for a while now.

Lewis: Morning, guys. How do I look?
Rossi: You look great?
