    i found a couple comical parts in this episode that i thought were amusing..."mabe she saw a tree down there she wanted to hug." lol that's aweful. so, for Gabriel's sake i certainly he finds Pope's car...so Brenda finds out Captain Pope was having an affair with the victim (Maggie), who happened to be married. boy he's just not scoring any points with Brenda is he? Brenda is not only recovering from her surgery, dealing with needing help getting out of chairs and such, but then she happens her way right into a patch of poison oak...i'd have to say Brenda, you have luck like i do.moreless

    It was cool seeing Brenda post surgery, because she was having trouble getting up and stuff and needed help which isn't how you usually see Brenda. I liked seeing how she couldn't eat her usual sweets too it was nice to see her struggling with that. It was funny to see her asking the fireman for help getting down the cliff too.



    I liked that Flynn was telling the guy how to back up and he was like "plenty of room, plenty of room," and then he was like "whoa too far." I just enjoyed that little scene. The fact that Pope had been having an affair with the murder victim was indescribable. There is really no way to describe that fact. It was something that may have been expected because of how he wanted Brenda all over the case and was willing to sign off on the overtime, but it wasn't expected because of everything that happened with his divorce and his kids.



    Fritz was great. I loved that Brenda called him and asked for his help then explained things to him and hung up on him. It was nice that he stood up in the end and did what she wanted and it got the case turned over to the FBI. I really enjoyed watch the PHD go against the FBI while working on this.



    It wasn't all that surprising to see that the one guy's wife had killed Maggie because the first time you saw her the way she acted was very suspicious.



    The end with Pope's car was nice too. This was a really good episode but the murderer was obvious early on.moreless
  • Fritz gets revenge...

    So it seems like a simple death. Woman's car goes off a cliff - maybe an accident, maybe a suicide. So why is PHD called in? Because of who she is and her connections. Brenda as usual calls ?ritz for help, but this time instead of just helping her he makes it an active FBI case pitting Brenda againt the government - hiding somw evidence - stuff like that. We also find out more about Pope's past as he was having an affair with the girl - maybe PHD working the crime is a conflict of interest. Brenda seems to be recovering from her surgery, bit is still craving those sweets. Brenda's parents are starting to get on everyone's nerves.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Brenda: (to FBI Special Agents Blackburn and Horlacher) Oh, I hardly think that Maggie Scott was killed by terrorists, unless you think the evil-doers are trying to destroy the world with pepper spray.

    • Tao: Oh, and Maggie Scott's rental car company called, they want to know when they can get a look at their hybrid.
      Brenda: And what did you tell them?
      Tao: Uh, what I always tell them; 'Sure, no problem'. Then I hung up.

    • Fritz: I don't know if I should check on this for you.
      Brenda: Oh, if I have to hear one more time how your friends are makin' fun of you for doin' me favors...I am recoverin' from surgery...Please!
      Fritz: There are new rules in place. If you get us involved...
      Brenda: And I can't have chocolate any more. Do you understand that? Do you? Do you? Please, just...make the call.

    • Commander Taylor: (explaining why HSD had sent an auditor) One of the LAPD's financial troubles; for every dollar the Feds give us, we spend two dollars trying to prove we're not wasting it.
      Provenza: Well, there's your motive, Chief. Everybody hates an auditor.

    • Gabriel: (as Brenda prepares to rappel down the cliff) Uh, Chief, you are not physically ready for this.
      Brenda: I have to see the body.
      Gabriel: We don't have training on those harnesses, we're not supposed to use them.
      Brenda: (hands him her purse) You're not doing it Sergeant. Take the rest of the crew and climb down, and I'll meet you there. (to the fireman) Ready whenever you are.
      Gabriel: (desperation in voice) Ok, alright, wait, wait...I have a duty! Ok, wait! Dammit, Chief!

    • Tao: (At the car accident scene) Our accident investigators saw no signs of a collision, no skid marks; it seems she accelerated right off the cliff.
      Gabriel: She's from D.C., she might have been lost, didn't see the turn.
      Flynn: Or, she did it on purpose.
      Provenza: (Sarcastically) A woman so concerned about the planet that she rented a hybrid to kill herself in?
      Flynn: (Shrugging) I dunno. Maybe she saw a tree down there she wanted to hug.
