Character Bio

Teresa Lisbon photo
Teresa 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).

07x13 - White Orchids Season 7 / Episode 13: - White Orchids

Patrick Jane: This ring has been with me for a very long time, and, uh... it has obvious significance with my past. But it also represents... meeting you. If I didn't have this ring, I would never have met you. So in a sense, it has the potential to represent my future as well. And I'm not expecting you would ever wear it, but I want to share it with you. And I want it to represent our future. Together [He takes a deep breath] I want you to be my wife. Will you marry me?
Teresa Lisbon: [Lost for words and overjoyed] Okay. Yes. Yes, I will. Yes!
Patrick Jane: Excellent! I'm glad that's dealt with, I was a little nervous.
Teresa Lisbon: Oh, come on. You knew I was gonna say yes.
Patrick Jane: No; even after all these years you're still a mystery to me.
