Love You to Death
AIRED:
To get away from his usual crime beat and to look up and old girlfriend, Tom goes to the horse races. The horse who wins the big race is owned by his ex (Dominique) and her husband. She invites Tom to the victory party and while he is there, the horse's trainer is murdered in the stables.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: It's supposed to be the sport of kings and I'd never been invited to a coronation before. You can't turn down a new experience; or an old one. I had to find out what seeing her again would do to me. And I didn't mind the chance to get away from the night beat for a few hours. Away from cops and crooks and killers. But then, it never quite works out the way you planned, does it?

      • Lt. Hogan: Kevin, what the hell is going on here? We've got a fixed race that isn't fixed, we got a homicide that's got us arresting a bunch of dogs, and we got my phone ringing off the hook every 18 seconds!
        Kevin: All right, so take your phone off the hook.
        Lt. Hogan: It's me that wants to get off the hook. The racing industry is very important in this town.
        Kevin: No one is questioning the racing industry Jim.
        Lt. Hogan: I wish I could be as sure of that as you are. As long as this thing's left open, it's going to raise questions.
        Kevin: We are working on it. I don't think it has got anything to do with the race.
        Lt. Hogan: Well that does me a lot of good, doesn't it? Kevin, as long as they lean on me, I'm going to be leaning on you. Now get this thing cleared up and I'll buy you a beer.

      • Lt. Hogan: If there's anything worst than a homicide, it's a homicide that's got politicians ringing my phone number every 10 seconds!

      • Mr. Kilpatrick: I am free to go, aren't I?
        Lt. Hogan: Just don't leave town Mr. Kilpatrick.
        (Kilpatrick leaves Lt. Hogan's office)
        Kevin: Just don't leave town??
        Lt. Hogan: I've always wanted to say that.

      • (as they leave Tom's office after talking with Tom and Dominique)
        Frank: Wait a minute, what the hell was all that about?
        Kevin: I'll tell you later.
        Frank: No, no, no. Tell me now. OK? Because I felt like an idiot in there.
        Kevin: All right. That lady, Dominique, she dumped Tommy a few years ago. That's what got him drinking.
        Frank: Dominique and Tommy were involved?
        Kevin: No, he was involved. She was slumming.

      • Frank: Coroner's report shows [trainer's] death caused by secan, secanol ...
        Freddie: Succinilcoline - muscle relaxant. Veterinarians commonly use it to put horses to sleep.
        Colby: Whereas you can rely on you personality!
        Freddie: Why is it people resent people who know things that they don't?

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: She took me for a ride it took years to get off - if I ever did. But that was a lifetime ago, or at least I thought it was until I saw her again. There are some women who can do that to a man. Is it our weakness and her strength? I don't know. She ruled men. She ruined them. She did it to Teddy Madden, and the ride he went on, goes straight to prison.

      • Whitey: You're asking a guy who picked the Patriots in the Super Bowl, Edmonton in the Stanley Cup and the Red Sox in the series.

        This show originally aired on February 5, 1987. The references are to:

        1) Super Bowl XX, played on January 26, 1986 in New Orleans where the New England Patriots lost to the Chicago Bears 46-10.

        2) The 1986 Stanley Cup playoffs, in which the two time defending champion Edmonton Oilers were shocked in the second round by the Calgary Flames, who beat them 4 games to 3. The 7th game, which Calgary won 3-2, is one of the most famous games in NHL playoff history. The deciding goal was scored when Edmonton defenseman Steve Smith attempted a cross-ice pass from the side of his own net and the puck struck goaltender Grant Fuhr's leg and went in the Edmonton goal.

        3) The 1986 World Series in which the Boston Red Sox were defeated 4 games to 3 by the New York Mets. The Series is best remembered for Bill Buckner's 10th inning error in Game 6 which allowed the Mets to force a Game 7 with a 6-5 win.

        The Patriots reference became outdated by the time show aired as Super Bowl XXI had been played on January 25, 1987, 11 days earlier.
