Episode Summary

EDIT
The Guardian
AIRED:

Harm and Mac defend a former Navy SEAL, now a homeless man, but still a highly trained killing machine, who is accused of using excessive force in killing three men who tried to hold up a convenience store.

It seems like an open-and-shut case of triple homicide until Harm and Mac discover that the former SEAL, Paul Bauwer acted instinctively at the store as he sought to protect a young boy -- who happened to be his estranged son but didn't recognize him. Bauwer, embarrassed by his own vagrancy, wants to keep his identity a secret from his son. As a result, Harm and Mac must devise a successful defense without divulging their client's relationship to the only witness to the incident, while at the same time proving that Bauwer acted in an appropriate manner.

    This was a very good episode! All of it was fabulous! I cant think of one thing that I didnt like! It was very sad! The parts with Bud were very funny though! I loved the scene where Harm said to him, "Bud if you were a girl I'd kiss you!" That was sssooo funny! And the part where Bud doesnt want to take that exam and hes praying to God for something to happen and then that guy comes in with the gun! That was very funny! But the parts with the man and his son was very good and very much a tearjerker! This episode was wonderful!moreless

    • Chief Bauwer: Sometimes it's best to put an old guard dog down. More trouble than he's worth once he's outlived his usefulness.
      Harm: You can always find some way to be useful, Chief.
      Chief Bauwer: And what am I supposed to do, sir? If I don't want to be a mercenary, what am I supposed to do?! I can kill a man eighteen ways with my bare hands. I can break down forty-three different assault rifles. I can jump from a chopper doing thirty knots, thirty feet into a freezing ocean and swim all night to a submarine. But what am I supposed to do NOW?!

    • Bud: Uh, sir? Just for the record, the man is a bit of a loose cannon.
      Chegwidden: Yes, Lieutenant, but as far as I know, so are his attorneys.

    • Harm: Chief, you may be a quitter, but I'm not. So if you're going to fire me, you better do it now, because I am going to try this case to the best of my ability.

    • Harm: (when Bud tracks down the witness) Bud, if you were a girl, I'd kiss you!
      Bud: (giggling) Red light, Commander!
