  • Quotes (170)

    • Lindsay: Seems like 'one thing, as they says, leads to another' a lot with you.

      Miles: My wife is married to her work, what am I supposed to do?

      Lindsay: Oh, so because you don't get enough attention everything is your wives fault? Did you ever think, I don't know, maybe your wife's job is important to her or you should be a little more understanding?

      Miles: (To Jacobi) What's her problem?

      Jacobi: She is touched over how choked up you are over this whole thing.

    • Jill: Linds I did something bad.

      Lindsay: What? Are you okay?

      Jill: Yeah, it's just I... I didn't tell you that Tom asked about you.

      Lindsay: Whatever.

    • Miles: Excuse me, but instead of patting yourselves on the back, shouldn't you be out arresting the real killer? Walton James? Theresa's stalker...

      Jacobi: Where were you yesterday morning?

      Miles: Wait, this guy followed her around for five years. We used to have to meet where she knew he wasn't watching, she was afraid he'd lose it.

      Lindsay: Any alibi will do.

    • Tom: Hey Lindsay, we should talk. Lindsay: Yeah sure, just not now. Tom: "Not now", the Lindsay Boxer refrain. Lindsay: Don't be an ass, Tom. Tom: Don't be an ass 'lieutenant!'

    • Officer: That goes upstairs to the new bosses office. Lindsay: They named the new lieu? (Jacobi nods) It's not you? What idiot did the idiots in charge give it to? Tom: This idiot. Lindsay: Tom? Tom: I tried to call you four times. Lindsay: I'm going to need a minute.

    • Lindsay: I need a search warrant for Miles Van Aiken's car, restaurant, his house... Jill: Yeah, based on...? Lindsay: ...I don't like the cheating bastard? Jill: Sweetie, you know I love you like an annoyingly pushy, emotionally stunted sister, but I need probable cause.

    • Lindsay: The not talking when we were married, that's totally different than the not talking now. Tom: It is? Lindsay: I avoided the talks back then because, according to Claire, I... I was scared of being in love with you. Tom: And now? Lindsay: Well, now I... I'm not in love with you, so there's simply no need.

    • Tom: Look, Linds, we were married. That comes with stuff. Good stuff, bad stuff, but stuff, and we can not talk about it, but it's there. Lindsay: Works for me.

    • International Episode Titles: Czech Republic: V√≠tejte v klubu (Welcome to the Club)

    • Original International Air Dates: Australia: January 23, 2008 on Network 10 Denmark: February 4, 2008 on TV3 Portugal: April 28, 2008 on FOX Life New Zealand: July 14, 2008 on TV3 Finland: September 14, 2008 on MTV3 Czech Republic: May 11, 2010 on Prima

    • This episode was completely re-written and re-shot after the ABC Upfronts in May 2007, as producers thought the original pilot was needlessly complicated and featured too many regular/recurring cast members. The original pilot saw Cindy written as an established member of The Club, a mystery involving a serial murderer dubbed "The Vendetta Killer" and a proposed season-long arc involving a killer who was caught by The Club and who Jill is trying to put away for life. Other differences included Lindsay being promoted to the lieutenant position, Cindy dating a biker (played by Joshua Leonard), Hanson working in the mayor's office, and the women actually referring to themselves as "a club" (as opposed to being repulsed by that title in the aired pilot). Elsewhere, the show had two additional cast regulars: Elizabeth Ho played Yuki Castellano, Jill's lawyer colleague who wanted in on The Club (basically Cindy's role in the aired pilot), and Robert Patrick Benedict played Owen Haight, a CSI tech. Lindsay's ex-husband Tom had a smaller role (and wasn't a cop, but did sleep with Lindsay despite being engaged) and was played by Christopher Wiehl; and a guest appearance by Robert Patrick as a department psychiatrist was left on the cutting room floor. Matthew Davis was also cut, his character Joe Sandoval being set up as a love interest for Lindsay to recur throughout the season.

    • A murder victim was named Brian Lowry in an original draft of the script as a hit at a prominent columnist for the tradepaper Variety. This was changed in a later draft.

    • Jill was killed off at the end of the episode in an early draft of the script. This was subsequently changed.

    • ABC ordered an additional day of shooting in April to film a new scene that helped "clarify the plot" for the episode.

    • Three of the main cast appeared in unpicked ABC pilots for the 2006-2007 season. Angie Harmon led the cast of Secrets of a Small Town, Laura Harris appeared in Hollis and Rae, and Tyrees Allen played in A House Divided.

    • ABC issued a pilot order for Women's Murder Club on January 9, 2007.
