Lie to me S03E01
No distractions. No histrionics.
Everyone on the ground!
You stay with him until I reach the teller window.
He'll take care of the cameras and the lights.
Me and the others will control the situation
While you open the safe.
We're in. We're out.
I need a gun.
Writin' a book like this is like--
Well, it's not easy.
You know, it's like a high-wire act, really.
I mean, especially since the whole thing
Hinges on a science which--
Take my word for it-- in the wrong hands, would be a gaping yawn.
I mean, you can't make sense of what you see, you see?
Human face is like a puzzle. It--
You gotta know what to look for.
This book, it's just not--
It's not gonna write itself, you know what I mean?
Are you saying your science is like art?
Uh, he's selfish, some say brilliant,
But a bully.
He's dangerous. He's a narcissist,
And, uh, I can see that you are--
You're wondering how it is
I've managed to work for him this long,
And, uh, you know, the truth is I don't know.
I don't know, but the point is that I'm here now.
Dr. Lightman, let me be completely clear.
You look like you could use a drink.
Beg your pardon?
Glass of water just to clear the throat, you know.
Back in a jiffy.
Torres, in 2 minutes, right,
I want you to come in my office
And tell me I'm needed urgently.
Needed urgently where?
I don't know. I don't care, all right?
But make it good, all right?
Ok. Yeah. No problem.
Is this the Torres group already,
Or is it still the Lightman group?
It's tap water.
You know, hope that's all right.
Save the planet. All that. You know what I mean?
My client, DeWitt and Jones publishing,
Is tired of waiting
For the book they contracted you to write over 2 years ago.
They now need evidence that you're working in good faith
Commensurate with the generous advance they paid.
In other words, deliver the book
Before the end of the quarter,
Or next time we see each other will be in court,
And you'll be facing charges of misrepresentation and, uh, fraud.
End of the quarter?
I mean, what do they think I'm writin' here, a check?
That'd be an elegant way out,
Save the inevitable lien on your assets.
My advice to you-- write the damn book.
It's just tap water!
It's not poison!
Who was that?
That was someone with more contempt for me
Than they have for the planet, which is saying something.
She's a 24-karat pit bull, that one.
But then you already knew that, didn't you?
Thanks for the heads-up.
Have you written even one word of this book?
Which, by the way, you failed to ever tell me about.
Well, the hard part...
Is in here. Rest is easy.
Let's hope so, for all our sakes.
This is a business. You may not care
About your responsibilities to the rest of us,
But please stop acting like you're not even aware of them.
Dr. Lightman, you're needed in the lab urgently.
And you're leaking.
I need access to my account, please.
You see that, right? You see that?
They always look at me like that.
I mean, do I look like a criminal to you?
Don't answer that.
Hi. Pleased to meet you, too.
Now, pay attention. Keep up.
You see these two?
They're on the rocks.
She's had it up to here with him, and, uh, he blames her,
So now it's all down to the money.
And see this one over here?
That's your average honor student, that is.
Or meth head.
Possible to be both.
But I digress.
I didn't catch your name.
Well, that's because you haven't given me a chance.
How you doin'? You all right?
So are you looking for someone, or, uh,
You know, you just casin' the joint?
No, it's all right.
Secret's safe with me, as long as you cut me in.
So, uh, when you gonna do it, then?
Rob the bank.
What?! Is it something I said?!
Oh, that's interesting.
How much time'd you do?
Listen, buddy, whatever you're sellin',
I'm not buyin', all right?
State or federal?
How do you know I was in?
My money's on state.
When'd you get out? Was it days ago?
I've been in exactly the same place as you are now.
I doubt that.
In answer to your question,
I read faces.
