  • Quotes

    • Tanya Makin: When he said he needed more time, what did - what's he gonna do?
      Sam Swarek: He's trying to fix himself. Maybe that way you'll love him back.
      Tanya Makin: That's crazy.
      Sam Swarek: Yeah.

    • Andy McNally: You know, it's really not that kid's fault. I mean, he's just trying to get better. He can't control it.
      Sam Swarek: That kid stole heads. He was diagnosed, prescribed medication, he chose to go off his medication. In my book, that makes him responsible.
      Andy McNally: Yeah, but he didn't ask for this to happen.
      Sam Swarek: McNally, things happen to us all the time. It doesn't mean we can't choose how we react.
      Andy McNally: Is this you trying to be subtle again?

    • Andy McNally: These heads, you think it's just some innocent prank?
      Sam Swarek: Try using the words "severed heads" and "innocent" in the same sentence. I really want to hear that one.
      Andy McNally: (laughing) Shut up.

    • Andy McNally: Hey, what's going on? What did Jerry say?
      Sam Swarek: Victoria Mercy's lab reported three cadavers with missing heads.
      Andy McNally: Cadavers? You think they go with the heads we found? (Sam smiles and looks at her) I can't believe I just asked you that.
      Sam Swarek: Nothing gets by you, does it, McNally?
      Andy McNally: Oh, kinda like the bit about being too young to be married? No. Nothing gets by me.
