Rule #4: The best way to keep a secret? Keep it to yourself. Second best? Tell one other person - if you must. There is no third best.

Telling Ducky had been a bad idea. He kept smiling whenever Abby was in the same room as you, and his little grin was going to be the death of you.


Rule #27: Two ways to follow: — First way they never notice you, — second way they only notice you.

You managed three sketches before she looked away from her computer. The next day, she always seemed to be behind you though.


Rule #7: Always be specific when you lie.

Never tell Abby you want to look over the piece of evidence she's working on just so you can be around her. She'll ask what you're looking for.


Rule #18: It's better to seek forgiveness than ask permission.

The kiss had been a surprisingly effective form of apology.


Rule #12: Never date a coworker.

There were some rules worth breaking.
