Character Bio

Teresa Lisbon photo
Lisbon's mother was killed by a drunk driver when she was 12. The storyline (Red Tide) implied that Teresa then had to take over her mother’s role and care for her family of 3 younger brothers. After her mother’s death, her father became an abusive drunk and ended up killing himself (we don’t know whether he did this accidentally or on purpose, but Teresa said “...damn near killed me and my brothers too...”, so it may have been something like another drunken car accident, or simply neglect).

Teresa Lisbon Quotes

06x22 - Blue Bird Season 6 / Episode 22: - Blue Bird

Patrick Jane: You're right. I have forgotten how to act like a normal human being. And I play games and I lie and I trick people to avoid the truth of how I feel. And the idea of letting anyone close to me is terrifying for obvious reasons, but the truth, Teresa, is that I can't imagine waking up, knowing that I won't see you. The truth is... I love you. Whew! You can't imagine how good it feels to say that out loud, but it scares me... and it is the truth. It is the truth of what I feel.
Teresa Lisbon: Jane, it's too late.
Patrick Jane: Maybe, and I understand, that's OK. I needed to get to this, and you deserve to hear it.
U.S Air Marshall: Put your hands in the air right now, do it!
Patrick Jane: I love you, Teresa. And it makes me happy to be able to say that to you. [to the plane passengers, as he is leaving] I love her. That woman in 12B... I love her. You take care of her!

Teresa Lisbon: I'm sorry, that was embarrassing.
Passenger on Plane: Oh, shush, honey. Every woman on this plane is green with envy.
