  • Quotes

    • Sanchez: (just before Brenda enters the interview room) Little Justin says his father is a lawyer. Just so you know.
      Brenda: (entering the room) Good morning, Mr. Darcy, I'm Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, LAPD, and I have brought you here this morning to talk about rape.
      Justin: I haven't raped anyone. Ever.
      Brenda: I have a statement alleging sexual assault from the victim.
      Justin: (arrogantly) Do you know how stupid that is? All right, I think I should get my one phone call and talk to my dad. He's a criminal attorney, OK? So, I think I know a bit more about the justice system than the average person you drag in here.
      Brenda: (chuckling) Lt. Flynn, would you please hand Mr. Darcy your phone? As I am sure you're aware, Mr. Darcy, given your vast knowledge of the law, the age of consent for male/male sex in the state of California is 18.
      Justin: (dialing Flynn's phone, and still arrogant) I'm 19. In two months.
      Brenda: Many happy returns. Eric Wallace, the boy who you are currently 'tutoring', is 17. Make sure you tell your father that the charges against you will include, but not necessarily be limited to, statutory rape and sex with a minor. I look forward to meeting your family. I can only imagine how proud they'll be.
