  • Quotes (9)

    • Catherine: Finn took action in the line of duty. Johnson was trying to help a kid at risk. Nick: So where's the bad guy in this? Ray: You tell me.

    • Det. Moreno (looking at the computer screen): Now, each dot represents a crime involving firearms. And this is just in the last year. Sara: Wow. You leave town for a while and all hell breaks loose.

    • Ray: Look, when I had a gun pulled on me, I didn't check for skin color before I pulled the trigger. Finn's motives are not what we're after, just the evidence that's gonna tell us about his actions. (Sara smiles, that reminds her of someone: Grissom)

    • Brass: I put my crediblity on the line for you. CSIs said excessive force, I said 'no way'. Officer Finn: That's right. Brass: Oh, yeah? (plays the dispatch recording of Officer Finn calling Sgt. Johnson a black son of a bitch) Officer Finn: I don't remember saying that. Union Rep: I'm advising you not to speak, not until we hear the full recording and the witness statements. Officer Finn: You think I'm racist? I don't remember, if I said he was black, I was decribing the suspect. I was so focused on what the gun was doing I-- Brass: Did you see his face? Officer Finn: No, it was dark out. Brass: Are you telling me, you didn't recognize Scott Johnson? He was a trainee, he rode with you, he was your partner for four months. You spent 8 hours a day in a car together. You saw more of him than you did of your wife. Union Rep: This was over 5 years ago. Brass: Are you telling me you didn't recognize a guy who put a formal complaint in your file for racial discrimination? Let me read this to you: (starts reading the complaint) "Frequent and excessive use of racial epithets including the 'N' word." Officer Finn: First of all, no. I didn't recognize Johnson. And second, yeah, I use street talk with the trainees. Brass: Come on, you know that doesn't fly anymore. Officer Finn: But believe me, what they get from me is nothing compared to what they're gonna get from the real gorillas in the jungle. Union Rep: That's a poor choice of words. Officer Finn: I am training them for the real world and out of the dozens and dozens of people I have trained, and that is every color of the rainbow, pal. That hard ass was the only one who ever complained. The only one. He's the racist, not me.

    • Doc Robbins: You know, in ancient times, coup de grace was considered an act of mercy, quick blow to end the suffering of a comrade wounded in battle. Sara: Whatever this was, it was no act of mercy.
