Number eight of this now incredible collection! Now I give you the Fifty Things of Jane and Lisbon!
Disclaimer: I don't own The Mentalist or any of its characters.
#1 - Couch
It's the spot she's always come to think of as his. To be honest, it's practically become his second home.
#2 - Pony
Her face had been priceless - and totally worth the price.
#3 - Focus
The urge to catch Red John increased with every passing case.
#4 - Plan
She doesn't know why she bothers asking anymore.
#5 - Smiley
"That's not healthy, Jane. Not after all this time."
#6 - Palace
His memory palace was extensive and detailed - especially when it came to everything he knew about Lisbon.
#7 - File
She'd found out bits and pieces of his past from his own admissions, but the big picture was always a bit hazy to see.
#8 - Hole
He'd fallen hard from those carefree times as a charlatan. But he'd been making amends as he made the climb back up.
#9 - Carnival
Lisbon found herself curious about his childhood one day, so she asked him about it.
#10 - Relating
He's always had a gift with children. Fatherly instincts never truly fade.
#11 - Tears
It's tough being tough on a day-to-day bases. It's even tougher to be vulnerable when you just want to cry.
#12 - Even
Situation: Showing up at a cop's door with ice cream and chocolate. Chance of entrance: 50/50 depending on her mood.
#13 - Desperation
It wasn't often that he was scared for Lisbon. To be honest, it terrified him to care so much about her.
#14 - Frown
Her tell was just adorable.
#15 - Lonely
Sometimes it becomes too much to bear.
#16 - Sight
He never truly appreciated her beauty until he couldn't see it.
#17 - Method
It wasn't always obvious, but after four years, she had to believe it was in there somewhere.
#18 - Temptress
"What lucky SOB gets to see the boss in that?" Cho deadpanned, knowing that Jane was paying rapt attention.
#19 - Madness
"You're very well groomed for a crazy person."
#20 - Details
His devil was all but invisible. Maybe that's why he worked so hard to hunt down others.
#21 - Misdirect
At her behest, Jane decided to teach her a basic trick of his trade.
#22 - Grace
Jane was a skeptic, but he made the boss smile. That counted for something.
#23 - Smile
He had plenty of them, and Lisbon was beginning to notice which were real and which he faked.
#24 - Red
He always associated that color and all its shades with vengeance and death - until he saw that dress on her.
#25 - Tombstones
When that fateful day rolls around, she knows exactly where to go.
#26 - Rigsby
When it mattered, Jane could really give good advice. Even if he did make things impossibly awkward.
#27 - Illness
He had nobody. So Lisbon armed herself with chicken soup, medicine, and her best game face to drive him back to Malibu.
#28 - Drive
They both had it for very different reasons.
#29 - Cho
Jane had his useful moments. Not that he'd ever admit it aloud.
#30 - Loopy
Heavy-duty pain medication, Lisbon learned, was the only thing capable of turning Patrick Jane into a rambling wellspring of information.
#31 - Backhand
"You'd make a fine shill, Lisbon."
#32 - Switch-up
The day was a long day coming when Patrick Jane found himself outsmarted by Teresa Lisbon.
#33 - Heal
It would take a while, but at least he now had a reason to try.
#34 - Poker
He completely killed at that game for a variety of reasons.
#35 - Bomb
No lie, he was absolutely terrified when he saw that rigged vest on his Teresa.
#36 - Talk
She knew he had plenty of it, but her chief concern was with what his mouth spewed out when in volatile situations.
#37 - Blurt
"Dammit Jane, why won't you listen to someone who loves you?"
#38 - Pulse
It'd been a long, long time since he'd felt his heart beat for something other than revenge.
#39 - Cracks
Little by little over the years, she'd begun to see the man behind the mask.
#40 - Response
Panic was his chief emotion, mixed with hope, pain - and an overwhelming urge to kiss her.
#41 - Accomplice
After a while, Lisbon resigned herself to the truth.
#42 - Psychic
He kept insisting that they weren't real.
#43 - Tradition
She never cared for it. He never followed it.
#44 - Flashback
It was Red John all over again, but this time Jane was the victim.
#45 - Brothers
He rolled his eyes at her concern. "Lisbon, I think I'm perfectly capable of surviving your four brothers' scrutiny for one family dinner."
#46 - Scolding
He knew that his antics could've gotten them killed.
#47 - Danger
On the job with her was always a heart attack waiting to happen.

When a blonde mentalist walked into her life and proceeded to knock the wind out of her sails, Lisbon never knew she'd come to care about his annoying ass.

Each time, he chose to save her.
