    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Pam: (of murdered woman in reconstruction) She was a pretty girl.
        Mrs Tennison: That's not the real girl, that's someone dressed up to look like her.
        Mr Tennison: They can't have the real girl, woman, because she's dead!

      • Moyra Henson: How long has she been bald, then?
        George Marlow: Dunno, she never mentions it. Still pretends, always telling me she needs a good shampoo and trim.
        Moyra Henson: Just goes to show you - the Rita Hayworth of Warrington was really Yul Brynner in disguise.

      • DI Frank Burkin: How'd the interview go?
        DCI Jane Tennison: E.D. Williams is a thirty-five-year old with a history of a mental disorder who has a passion for watching trains at Euston station. Now, either Sergeant Otley needs his frigging head seen to or he's sending me on a wild goose chase around London.

      • DCI Jane Tennison: So what do you think?
        DI Frank Burkin: About what, sir?
        DCI Jane Tennison: My voice suddenly got lower has it? Maybe my knickers are too tight. Listen, I like to be called governor or the boss. I don't like Ma'am - I'm not the bloody Queen. So take your pick.
        DI Frank Burkin: Yes, Ma'am.

      • DCI Jane Tennison: How'd you feel about your boyfriend picking up prostitutes?
        Moyra Henson: I love it! Gives me a night's rest!

      • Detective Inspector Burkin: (searching house) Where's your bathroom?
        Moyra Henson: This is harassment, you know! You've already been here two days on the trot. What are you looking for this time? I've got an appoinment to keep, you know. How long are you going to be this time?
