Did You Know?


The scene in Lisbon's apartment gives us interesting insight into the character. You see a baseball in a glove on the shelf and a red sports shirt with a 17 on it along with some trophies which could indicate that Lisbon was in a successful baseball team at college or high school. You also see a lot of post-its on the wall and a basket with knitting stuff along with a lot of books about "Leadership". The photo of her three younger brothers seems to be older, which could indicate that Lisbon doesn't see them very often anymore. See more »


When Lisbon is taking the polygraph, one of the data streams on the display is her EKG. Polygraphs measure heart rate, respiration rate, and galvanic skin response (related to moisture/sweat on the skin). There are no EKG sensors, and no measurement of EKG. See more »

Milton Howard: How 'bout you kiss me? You're pretty.
Grace Van Pelt: So are you. Compared to most state prison inmates.
