[Talking about releasing Ben Machado from custody]

Jane:
If he's here, how is the killer gonna get to him?

Lisbon:
He could be the killer. Even if he's not, we don't want the killer to get him.

Jane:
Yes, we do. Machado is our bait. He's our tethered goat.

Lisbon:
And too bad if the bait gets killed?

Jane:
Well, yes. That's why you use goats and not babies or virgins for that matter.

Lisbon:
Machado's not a goat.

Jane:
You're right, he's not actually a goat. He's goatish. He deserves to suffer.

Lisbon:
Nobody deserves murder.

Jane:
Machado helped burn Dave Martin alive out of greed.

Lisbon:
Jane, we're officers of the law.

Jane:
You are. I don't care about the law. I care about justice, and justice says Machado deserves to suffer.

Lisbon:

Jane:
