  • 7.14 "Road Block"

    9.5
    Elizabeth Perkins guest stars as Gail Meyers - an alcoholic woman who experiences a hit and run and actually kills a 19-year old girl from Clorado who studies at UCLA. Then leaves her car a few blocks away, along with her stuff and cell, goes to the restaurant where she just got out of and reports her car missing. Her story is full of inconsistencies and poor mistakes that the police starts digging deeper and deeper and Chief Johnson aka Ms. Kyra Sedgwick uncovers the whole story. But this time it ain't gonna be that easy. The prime suspect is the wife of the police commisioner. Ouch. Otherwise it was a very touching episode full of emotion. 'The Closer' still remains on top of it's game. 9,5/10moreless

    • Kelly Meyers: It's all my fault. It's my fault that poor girl got killed. It's my fault.
      Brenda: No, no, Kelly, it's not your fault but I understand why you feel that way. I'm, I'm married to a recovering alcoholic and he'd be the first to say that addicts are great at making the rest of us feel responsible for their mistakes.
      Kelly Meyers: Your husband was an...
      Brenda: An alcoholic, yes. He is the most thoroughly decent and wonderful man I've ever known but he tells me all the time that he's just one drink away from losing it all, that he needs help staying sober.

    • Flynn: Candy bar?
      Gail Meyers: No, thank you.
      Flynn: You know, when I first quit drinking, I practically lived on these things. Your body gets used to the sugar from the booze, you know.
      Gail Meyers: Oh, when did you quit drinking?
      Flynn: Been in A.A. for 15 years now. Got down to a choice between the badge and the bottle and the badge didn't make me feel like crap when I woke up in the morning.
      Gail Meyers: Well, good for you and your Higher Power. If your body can't tolerate alcohol, you should give it up. Glad you figured it out.
      Flynn: I didn't figure anything out. I just quit drinking.

    • Brenda: (turning on the radio inside the hit and run car) Ahh, classical music station.
      Provenza: Playing Beethoven - as everyone knows, the favorite composer for nine out of 10 car thieves.
      Brenda: Convinced?
      Pope: OK, I'm willing to climb this mountain with you, but in order to get to the top, you're going to have to prove that Gail Meyers' car was not stolen, that she was behind the wheel when Gracie Ann Gates was killed and, if you're really crazy enough to try to get her on vehicular manslaughter, ...
      Brenda: I'm as nutty as a fruitcake.
      Pope: ... we're also going to have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that she was under the influence, without a blood analysis or a field sobriety test. How do you plan to do that?
      Fritz: One day at a time.
