  • Interesting at least, great one.

    Garrett and Nigel start by working in a suppose mob hit and them pass to a woman's death at home. Looks like both cases are related.



    Jordan and Bug get to work with Seeley.

    I like Jordan's case more, it's about a woman missing from her car, there is blood everywhere and a bullet too. The thing I like more is the story behind.

    She had a sister, Jenny, that committed suicide because her husband used to hurt her, domestic abuse. Now Laura is participating in a documentary about domestic violence.

    It's a common problem and women are not protect from it, they are ashamed when they shouldn't be, it's not their fault.



    The important in the case is that Laura is not dead, she couldn't go through with that. She got her heart broken too but she didn't die, instead she ran away.



    It's a different case form the usual ones, this time the person wasn't dead. The other one in the episode is a mob case, two half brothers, the good and the bad.moreless
  • An episode sure to suprise. Review may contain spoilers.

    I think that choosing to make Laura Bennet a lesbian was a brilliant way to use a twist in the story. That coupled with the other murder storyline was played very well. I liked that they kept it fresh and for at least one episode tried to focus on the case instead of the characters personal lives(thats not to say I don\'t like the way other episodes are). The writers did a very good job writing this episode and should definetly be commended. It was also nice to see Woody working Macy for a different character mix. No Lu again, interestingly.moreless
  • Excellent episode.

    I didn't see the lesbian angle at all nor the girl not really trying to fake her own death. Finding her at the grave site was a no brainer. I saw the guy killing his half brother from a mile away. I didn't see the DA lady letting him get away with it. Overall a well written episode.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This was the first time Jordan called Pollack by "J.D." and not "Pollack".

    • Goof: Timeline is mess up. In the elevator at the end Lily asks where Jeffery found the flowers in January. However we know the 'supposed' murder of Laura took place on the 8th of November which was six weeks ago at the time of the episode. This means it still has to be December, not January.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Seely: Fourteen medical examiners in Boston and I get you.
      Jordan: (sigh) Come on Seely, you know you want me so bad you want to cry. What do we got?

    • Jordan: What kind of person disappears from her regular life and nobody even knows that she's gone?
      Bug: And what kind of person shoots you and then runs off with your body?

    • (To Jordan)
      Seely: There's no 'we' here. You do your job and I do mine.

    • Woody: So why'd he take the phone?
      Garret: Well she hit him with it so it's got his hair, skin, blood, something on it.
      Woody: So it's someone who watches Forensic Files. This isn't getting us anywhere.

    • Garret: I thought you were trying to trace the tap.
      Nigel: Well it's not instantaneous you know. You have to locate the DCS on the land segment, then it has to be traced back through hundreds of miles of broadband wires of routers to figure out where the data came from...
      Woody: You had to ask?

    • Garret: It's on the tape. You got his wife killed Rene.
      Rene: You sanctimonious bastard.

    • J.D.: Did the wife know about it?
      Jordan: Oh I have no idea. Talk about complicated relationships.
      (J.D. gives Jordan a 'look')

    • Jordan: I'm thinking cadaver dogs.
      Seely: For which I need a warrant. For which I need more than a hunch that Roger Caruthers is a hound.
      Jordan: Would you at least talk to the guy?
      Seely: Jordan if you want to be a cop? Take the test.

    • Laura: Since I've been out at the cabin I figured out how to know when you're really loved. It's when you see yourself reflected, really reflected in the other persons eyes. When you know it's the same for them.

    • Jordan: Hey Garret. I haven't seen you around much these days.
      Garret: (pouring a glass) Want to have a taste?
      Jordan: No thanks I'm out of here. Aren't you on duty till ten?
      Garret: You have a nice night.

    • Jordan: Could you do me a favor JD? Look into my eyes. What do you see?
      JD: Is this when I'm suppose to say livid pool so inviting I want to dive right in and drown?
      Jordan: I'm serious.
      JD: I see a pair of docile beautiful eyes belonging to a woman who...really wants half of this bottle of wine. What did you want me to say?
      Jordan: Oh it was just a question.
      J.D.: No with you it's never just a question. There's always something behind it, under it, and over it. (pause) I failed a test, didn't I?

    • Nigel: I paid seven homeless people to go dumpster diving for me.
      Garrett: Whose money did you use?
      Nigel: Yours.

    • Jeffery: Oh, I actually don't drink very much...
      Garrett: You can't even ask a woman out, drink up. I'm a doctor.
