  • What a lovely blend of a good story, life changing family news and some terrifc hnumor

    9.5
    I thought this episode hat it all: a good case, Brenda and Fritz personal and professional interaction, terrific humor and touching moments.What more can we ask for? There was so much going on in this episode and all of it was interwoven beautifully. The writing, directing and acting were all superb, but then we've come to expect that of The Closer. I think the overall production of the show is as good as any.



    This program was all about family: Brenda's and the murder victim's. In the end, the theme of protecting family was part of every aspect of the show. The tender love of Willie Rae and Clay that comes from a lifetime together, Fritz and Brenda coming together to support her dad while managing to make their way through a case that saw them working at apparent cross-purposes at times, the thoughtful gifts Brenda's parents got for her work family and even Lt. Flynn offering Brenda his support.



    The moment between Fritz and Clay at the end was the funniest of the series! I really needed a good laugh and that did it.



    Merry Christmas! :)moreless

    • (discussing the murder weapon)
      Flynn: Homeless guy was arrested with this this morning. Scared the crap out of some drivers when he was panhandling with it.
      Provenza: Hmm. More effective than a squeegee.

    • Fritz: Clay, Willie Rae, I'm so sorry. I hate to leave but this is something that just can't wait.
      WIllie Rae: We understand. Crime doesn't stop for dinner in this house.
