  • You must be Fluffy. That's not your gun.

    Dead drug dealer & a dead school teacher and she only date cops aka Badge Bunny or Cop Groupie. Quote of the day: I'd like to go to my own wake. Fluffy cracked me up! Interesting plot and the scene where 2 groups of cops clashes is just so ego it's great. Another great line from the drug lord: I'm thinking if teachers looks like that when i was a kid, maybe i would stayed in school and made something out of myself. The pool scene: Ted: There're naked women in the pool.

    Crews: Ted, I've made a decision.

    Ted: What's that Charlie?

    Crews: I'm going swimming.

    Ted: No man would hold that against you.moreless
  • What a great episode with a really exciting cliffhanger!

    This week's episode of Life was excellent. The chemistry between the various characters was totally brilliant and the final cliffhanger left me desperate to see what happens next week.

    I loved the scene with Charlie, Ted and the badge bunnies in the pool and things are really hotting up between Dani and Kevin Tidwell even though I still don't particularly like them as a couple.

    This show is sometimes unnoticed by people as it quietly goes about its business every week. But if you want a cop show with different and entertaining characters it really does not get better than this.moreless
  • "This is a kidnapping"

    "This is a kidnapping".

    This episode was *fabulous* in the best, most flamboyantly manner of speaking.

    Reese/Capt: Simply delightful the chemistry between the two. And how awkward that scene when they arrive to take the drug dealer.

    Good cop/ Bad cop: Now that is a test I think many of us would like to take.

    Ted/Mrs. Crewes: All things between these two are wonderful, and it is good to see them back together again.

    Tiger: lol. Drug dealer keeping a pet tiger. Cliche - apart from him being a Brit. Come on, guys. Why not Danish/Belgian?

    Rachel/Jennifer: Has she really gone there? If so, that is an interesting dynamic. Rachel and Crewes have great screen chemistry and it really does work between them. Would like to see more of that father/daughter - or guardian angel/lost child angle at play.

    Zen!!!: Water for the parched lips of true believers: "It is not what we carry, but what we choose to leave behind that defines us".

    And what a cliff hanger to leave us Crewesmoreless
  • Crews and Reese have to track down a Police groupie murder.

    The story was clearly written this week. I really enjoyed following the story as they worked out who the killer was. The Ted story was a bit dull - could have done without that. It's a shame that they do not make better use of an excellent actor like Alan Arkin.

    I also liked the way they reminded us that Reese had an addiction problem.

    As to the final scene - I was really shocked when the episode ended and could have screamed!! I was on the edge of my seat. Can't wait to see what happens next week.

    Not the best ever episode but definitely close to it.moreless
  • Extremely funny!

    This was an extremely funny episode, one of the reasons I love Life. The episode also had a very interesting case that dealt with partners and general cop relationship. I must say that the badge bunnies were a bit creepy, they were so one track mind about cops. This episode reminds us that Reese is an addict and that we need to worry about her slipping when she is stressed. Clearly, she is having family problems. I really hope she does not go back to using. Reese and Tidwell seem to be back on the fast track to dating, which is alright with me. Oddly I think Tidwell is a good influence on her as Charlie is. Overall, another fun and well done episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Although Reese pours granulated sugar on the table in the bar, when she blows it off the table it has somehow turned into powdered sugar.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Charlie: It is not what we carry with us but what we let go that defines who we are.

    • Charlie: Fig?
      Dani: You want me to eat that?
      Charlie: It's the sweetest of all fruits. 55% sugar. You know it's a fig that the snake offered to Eve?
      Dani: A snake?
      Charlie: Most people think it was an apple. It wasn't. It might not even have been a snake. Just some kind of serpent that led her astray.

    • Charlie: I'd like to go to my own wake.
      Dani: But then you'd be dead.
      Charlie: Except for that part.

    • Dani: Is there a bird that mates for life?
      Charlie: Parrot, I think. Or the goose.
      Dani: I hate birds.

    • Charlie: That still leaves us with the question of our schoolteacher, Kendall Shay. Nothing connects her to Felix Banner.
      Kevin: Except all the Devil's dandruff up our schoolteacher's beak. She's a cokehead. He's a coke dealer.

    • Charlie: Got a sick cat?
      Justin: Bad liver.
      Charlie: Maybe she should lay off the booze.
      Justin: That's what I tell her, but you know cats, they can be so willful.

    • Ted: There are naked women in the pool.
      Crews: Ted.
      Ted: Yeah?
      Crews: I've made a decision!
      Ted: What's that Charlie?
      Crews: I'm going swimming.
      Ted: No man would hold that against you!

    • Rayborn: And I think this is a kidnapping.
      Crews: Kidnapping. What does that really mean? We are not kids. No one is napping. We are just two guys talking. That's all.
      Rayborn: No, no, you misunderstand me. This isn't a kidnapping, this detective is a kidnapping. (Nods toward where a man is about to smash in Crews' side window.)
