    • TRIVIA (3)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Ray Vecchio: Right. So we're gonna protect him. You and me surrounded by nine thousand violent offenders.
        Benton Fraser: For God's sakes Ray, don't blow the situation out of proportion. There's only 8,973 prisoners here.

      • Harding Welsh: Women in authority. It's a quandary. It shouldn't be, but it is.
        Benton Fraser: Sir?
        Harding Welsh: I mean, you want to treat 'em like the rest of the guys, you want to have them nod off in strategic planning sessions, you want them to have sweat rings, and maybe a little too much garlic on their breath. But no. No, not women. Women smell good. And women look good. And then they smile at you. And before you know it, you're smiling back. And the first time they tear a piece off you, it's like somebody's sticking an ice pick through your heart.

      • Judge: That's enough, Detective, you're in contempt.
        Ray Vecchio: You're damn right I'm in contempt. I'm in contempt of this whole lousy process. I'm in contempt of you, you and you!

      • Ray Vecchio: I'm not in defiance of anything. I'm being railroaded here. Come on, Your Honor, don't let some ass-kissing defense lawyer's paper chase give this guy a walk.

      • Elaine Besbriss: One day out of the week I ask for a little peace, a little relaxation, a little personal nurturing.
        Ray Vecchio: Elaine, you have no life. Stop whining.

      • Margaret Thatcher: You ran into a burning building to save a mohair sweater?
        Benton Fraser: Yes, sir.
        Margaret Thatcher: Pardon me if that sounds like sheer stupidity.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The title of the episode, Witness, is an reference to the 1985 Peter Weir film Witness, starring Harrison Ford as cop John Book. Book who goes into hiding in Amish country to protect a young boy who was witness to a murder. Like Book, Ray and Benton both have to go undercover in the witness' current habitat -- prison in their case.
