Ellie Burr: 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.
Will Dormer: You shouldn't knock misdemeanors.
Ellie Burr: Oh, but it's small stuff. It gets so boring.
Will 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?
Walter Finch: You forgot the wild card, Will.
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.
Walter Finch: You have no evidence I killed Kay. You only know because I told you what I saw.
Walter Finch: You're a good man. I know that. Even if you've forgotten it.
Will Dormer: We better find out where this came from.
Ellie Burr: I tried. Mrs. Connell doesn't know, her friends didn't know.
Will Dormer: Have you tried the jewelry stores? Small things, remember? The second you're about to dismiss something, think about it. Look at it again.
Ellie Burr: Want me to write that down?
Will Dormer: No, I'll remember it.
Walter Finch: 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.
Will Dormer: This guy crossed the line and didn't even blink.
Francis: This his blood?
Ellie Burr: Ketchup maybe. Was he eating a hot dog?
