    • QUOTES (12)

      • Sgt. Hood: It's good to see you focused for a change; it's about time.
        Leslie: Focused? When have I not been focused?
        Sgt. Hood: Well, I don't know how you can think straight with all these men on the line.

      • Leslie: Stop right there, please.
        Mal: How can we help you, Sergeant?
        Leslie: Where's Christian?
        Jake: My brother, Christian? He's back in town? That's weird, he didn't call or write, very strange of him.

      • Mal: When was the last time you saw Tommy Winsor?
        Trudy: On TV earlier, kissing the sidewalk outside his office; couldn't have happened to a nicer man.

      • Christian: I didn't want to drag you into this.
        Mal: I'm your father! I'm in it whether I like it or not.

      • (about Derm Fowler, recovering in hospital from an attempt on his life)
        Allison: Lucky guy, you just happening to be on his property.
        Jake: Yeah, it's a total fluke.
        Allison: What were you doing there?
        Jake: I was out for a run, you know, 'cause I exercise a lot, and I heard a commotion, saved his life. Question is: what are you doing here now?
        Allison: Your brother's in a lot of trouble, Jake; I'm trying to help you.

      • Dylan: And you've got to be Jake.
        Jake: Who is this, and why is he saying my name?
        Dylan: I'm Dylan Noseworthy, Sir.
        Tinny: And he was just leaving.
        Jake: Good. Good-bye.

      • Jake: Question is: was Derm awake when all this happened? 'Cause if he was...
        Mal: He'd be the prime witness to his own attempted murder.

      • (looking at a picture of Christian)
        Guy: You want to know if this guy was here?
        Mal: Yeah, or if you've seen him around at any other meetings.
        Guy: You know, they call it Narcotics Anonymous for a reason.

      • Jake: Jake: Look, Tinny, I know you know what you're doing. I do. But you should know that I... I run a background check on every little creep that shows up to the door looking for you.
        Tinny: You do?
        Jake: I do. I've been doing it since you were in, you know, junior high and started looking like a girl... girl. Dylan, he's got quite a rap-sheet to his name.
        Tinny: Like what?
        Jake: Possession... of drugs. Break and enters. Seems he has a habit of ripping off local grow-ops in and around town.
        Tinny: It doesn't matter, you know, I'm done with it. He's a loser.

      • J: Jake: Now, I have a feeling you had no idea Tommy Winsor was your client. And I'm pretty sure you didn't kill him.
        Michelle: It'd be bad for business.
        Jake: To kill your client, yes.

      • Michelle: Turn around. Turn around. (Jake turns his back to her) Your brother and that hooker are two very lucky people.
        Jake: Okay, obviously, you're a consummate professional, I get that. And you like to finish what you start; I'm kind of like that too. You know, in fact, I felt like we had some chemistry back there, earlier when we met, you know, that first time, I thought maybe we could talk about this over a drink, and you could not kill me. Hello?

      • Jake: You know, I have this cop friend, and she told me that an extraordinary amount of people get caught because they actually throw the murder weapon in their own garbage. Two hundred sixty thousand dollars... that's a lot of money; it must have been quite a sting when Tommy Winsor ripped off your nest egg. Pretty sure that's his blood, and your fingerprints will be all over this. The other bookend... you left it in Tommy's office.
        Trudy: I didn't go there to kill him; I really thought he'd give me my money back.
