    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The ambulance at the start of the episode has 'Mid-Yorkshire' written on the side, which you can clearly see that it has been stuck on.

    • QUOTES (12)

      • PC Spicer: Sorry to interrupt Sir, but forensics have managed to obtain a mitochondrial DNA profile from those dog hairs you took from Pyke's house.
        Dalziel: (Looks at Pascoe puzzled) Speak English.
        Spicer: They're a match.
        Dalziel: So Pyke did kill Summers.

      • (By Lateef's grave)
        Pascoe: What did he say?
        Dalziel: You alright boss.
        Spicer: That means he's ok then.
        Dalziel: I hope your right.

      • Pascoe: So the body could have been thrown down here, then washed away in the recent heavy rains.
        Dalziel: Lynn Barron's murder weapon might still be down there somewhere. Do you reckon I could get down?
        Pascoe: Yeah, and I'm gonna sleep with Halle Berry!

      • PC Spicer: This is gonna sound like a stupid question but do you miss it, hearing things?
        Charlie: It's not stupid at all. Yeah I do, but it's like anything you lose in life, you just get used to it.

      • Dalziel: Why don't you just spell it out? Say what you want to say. Come on!
        PC Spicer: Your hard on yourself and on everyone else. You want us to be like you, so you push us and push us. But we can't all be like you. And if Parvez hadn't worshipped you he'd still be alive!

      • Pascoe: We won't solve the case and he will have died for nothing.
        Dalziel: I killed him.
        Pascoe: Rubbish! He died doing what he loved best, being a policeman. Its a risk we all take everyday.

      • Pascoe: Lynn was obviously jealous of Barron and Sophie. Maybe it was something to do with their relationship?
        Dalziel: Barron was divorced from Lynn by then, it wouldn't matter.
        Pascoe: It would if someone else was taking your place in your kid's lives. Take it from someone who knows.

      • Sameen Lateef: Did you think he was a good policeman, Mr Dalziel?
        Dalziel: Very. He was dedicated, strong, bright, he's exactly what the force needed...needs.
        Sameen Lateef: That means a lot to us. We know how much he looked up to you.

      • (In car on way back from the cave)
        Dalziel: Why don't you say what's on your mind, Peter?
        Pascoe: There's nothing to say.
        Dalziel: You could say that I'm a pathetic, sad old bastard who bullies his way through life to get what he wants. (pause, waiting for Pascoe to reply, but he doesn't) That's what everyone else will say.
        Pascoe: Well, you can't make me say it. It wasn't your fault, Andy.
        Dalziel: You know what's sad, it was. Lateef's death was a complete waste. It's achieved absolutely nothing.

      • PC Spicer: What have you done! (Pushes Dalziel) This is all your fault. You did this. You made him go back down there, you killed him. You did this! You killed him!

      • (In car racing to the cave where Lateef is trapped)
        Pascoe: Slow down Andy!
        Dalziel: I just want to get there.
        Pascoe: Yeah, well I want to get there in one piece.

      • Dalziel: (Shouts) Any evidence connecting that body will be washed away if we don't get a shift on!
