    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: I did my bit for the homeless, ranting at the indifference of authorities from the comfortable haven of a newspaper column. When the hypocrisy got to me, I signed up for a week on Skid Row. It's a world inhabited by invisible people. We pass them without seeing them as casually and indifferently as we pass our own reflections in store front windows.

      • (expressing concern for Tom in light of the attacks)
        Frank: Tommy, look, enough's enough huh?
        Tom: I haven't got my story yet.

      • (inquiring about the attack victim)
        Kevin: Now, do you know anybody who may have had a grudge against him for any reason?
        Braden Dean: Life had a grudge against him.

      • Braden Dean: Well, when we first moved into this building what, ah, six years ago, some, ah, community groups put up a stink. They said we bring in vagrants. I tried to explain to them that's like saying the Humane Society causes puppies.

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: Do they really live among us, or are they citizens of another country, a vast and teeming gulag of the dispossessed? No, don't turn away. Look in their faces. Do you see your brother? Your son? An old friend? A co-worker? Someone you went to school with? Someone you once loved? No? You didn't see them? Not today. Tomorrow you could. Do we really kill the things we love? And what does it kill in us? Braden Dean was never found. Perhaps in the despair of recognizing what he had done he destroyed himself. But I don't like to think that. I like to think he merged into that faceless multitude. He's out there, somewhere. Living like one of them, dying like all of us.

      • Jaun Corona
        Lt. Hogan is referring to Juan Vallejo Corona, a Mexican-born serial killer who, in 1971, was convicted of the murders of 25 itinerant workers. Authorities found the bodies in shallow graves in the fruit orchards of Sutter County, California, along the Feather River north of Yuba City, where the men worked.
