The Mentalist quotes
Michelle Vega: You're definitely taking over the team?
Kimball Cho: [deadpan] Yes.
Michelle Vega: Are you excited?
Kimball Cho: I don't really think about it that way.
Michelle Vega: Isn't this something you've wanted your entire career?
Kimball Cho: Yes.

Kimball Cho: I am.
Michelle Vega: Oh. Good. So, are they any changes you're going to make when you take over?
Kimball Cho: Yeah, new rule. Rookie agents are seen and not heard.

Patrick Jane: The truth hurts, I know. It's biologically based actually. Our brains process sound faster than they do light, but light moves faster than sound. So the brain is constantly shifting reality so the world syncs up.
Doc Dugan: What does that have to do with anything?
Patrick Jane: This: only when someone is standing 30 yards away do we see and hear the world exactly as it is. That's when your brain, sound and light are all in perfect harmony.
Doc Dugan: So?
Patrick Jane: The rest of the time we are living in a world of lies. Lies are what make the world make sense. Ergo, the truth hurts.
