* Joan: Are you cooking, or did we get stampeded by a class of second graders?
* Bell: Hey, look who they pulled off the bench.
* Sherlock: They are so all seeing that you felt the need to adopt the guise from a clown in the future.
* Joan: First, you steal their software. Then you embarrass them with it.
* Man: FR is a billion dollar business and I proved that their software is flawed. Tell me that’s not a motive for murder?
* Joan: Trust me, you’re going to want to hear what he has to say. He looks just like the victims.
* Joan: The man is fluent in three dozen languages but has never seen “say anything.”
* Joan: So in other words, he hasn’t learned one thing.
