Episode Summary

When a crack addict is arrested on Skid Row, Commander Taylor passes the file to Major Crimes so that they will appear busy. When Brenda interviews the addict she empathizes with him, much to the frustration of David Gabriel, for whom the facts in the case, specifically a set of keys the addict threw away during his arrest, don't add up. He tries desperately to get his point across to Brenda eventually going over her head to both Chief Pope and Fritz, who shares a terrible secret from his alcoholic past to help her see what addicts can be capable of.

      • Fritz: So what's the deal? What does it boil down to - for you?
        Brenda: I have questioned Trey - very closely - and he's childish and immature but he's not capable of stabbing a girl to death.
        Fritz: OK. You know that conversation you never want to have? We've put it off as long as we can. (leads Brenda into her office) I'm an alcoholic, which means I am an addict.
        Brenda: OK, I know everything about this kind of stuff I want to know.
        Fritz: You think that but you don't. Really. You might be making a huge mistake and there's a girl out there whose life depends on you getting this right, OK? So look at me, look at me and tell me, am I a good guy? Do, do you think I'm a good guy?
        Brenda: Of course I do.
        Fritz: OK, now listen. Two days before I got my second DUI, I woke up hungover. I'm getting ready for work and I notice my jacket's still on the couch, my keys are still in the front door and my gun is missing three bullets.
        Brenda:What?
        Fritz:I go into the garage, I see I've shot up the driver's side of my car. No one was hurt, but what if I had been out on the town? Or if I'd been in a hotel? I could have killed someone. And here's the worst part of it, I kept drinking for two more days. It took me getting another DUI before I asked for help. I only did that because my career was on the line. That's how dangerous I was.
        Brenda: You're making it sound like you're some kind of monster and you're not a monster, you're the most decent person I know.
        Fritz: I'm both, honey. I'm sorry, but I'm both.

      • Brenda: David, you went over my head.
        Gabriel: Yes, I did.
        Brenda: I'll try to make sure you never feel the need to do that again.
        Gabriel: Chief, look, I am always on your side. You know that, right?
        Brenda: I do. (smiles) I know that.

      • Brenda: (walking in to her office) Hey.
        Fritz: Hey.
        Brenda: Do you have to leave right away?
        Fritz: I can stay for a while. You feel like talking?
        Brenda: I do. Am, I know you had this other life before you stopped drinking. I, I don't like to think about it, but maybe I should.
        Fritz: OK. (sits down and takes her hand) What would you like me to tell you?
        Brenda: Oh, everything I don't want to hear.
