I guess it's about what you thought was right at the time. Then, what you're willing to live with.

Rachel Clement

A good cop can't sleep because he's missing a piece of the puzzle. And a bad cop can't sleep because his conscience won't let him.

Fred Duggar: What has two thumbs and likes blowjobs?
[Points to himself with both thumbs]
Fred Duggar: This guy!

Are you trying to impress me Finch? Because it ain't gonna work.

Dormer

Randy, this whole thing you're doing, you know, this "fuck the world" act. Now that might work with your mama. It might even work with a couple of these local cops, who have known you long enough to figure you're too dumb ever to kill anyone without leaving a couple of witnesses and a signed confession. Ain't gonna work with me, because I know things, you understand? I know you beat your girlfriend. I know she was seeing somebody else. Somebody she might have even gone to see after she walked out on you Friday night. Now, you're gonna tell us who that somebody might be? Or are you so fucking stupid, you're going to leave yourself as the last person to see Kay Connell alive?

Dormer

You have no evidence I killed Kay. You only know because I told you what I saw.

Finch

You don't get it do you Finch? You're my job. You're what I'm paid to do. You're about as mysterious to me as a blocked toilet is to a fucking plumber. Reasons for doing what you did? Who gives a fuck?

Dormer

Hap Eckhart: We got the Halibut Calabrese, the Halibut Olympian.
Dormer: Keep going.
Hap Eckhart: Halibut Cajun style.
Dormer: I can't wait to see what they got for dessert.

You're a good man. I know that. Even if you've forgotten it.

Finch

Det. Ellie Burr: So, I'm gonna just take you guys over to the lodge, and...
Dormer: Just take us to the station.
Det. Ellie Burr: Right. We need to get started. Most homicides are solved by work done in the first 72 hours.
Dormer: Well, it's 48 hours. We're a day behind. But who's counting?

Dormer: You shouldn't knock misdemeanors.
Det. Ellie Burr: Oh, but it's small stuff. It gets so boring.
Dormer: It's all about small stuff. You know, small lies, small mistakes. People give themselves away, same in misdemeanors as they do on murder cases. It's just human nature. Aren't you gonna write that down?

You and I share a secret. We know how easy it is to kill someone. That ultimate taboo. It doesn't exist outside our own minds.

Rachel Clement: I can't judge. There are two kinds of people in Alaska: those who were born here and those who come here to escape something. I wasn't born here.
