  • Quotes

    • Brenda: Hello there, Rusty, I'm Deputy Chief Johnson. The LAPD just want to protect you from a very bad man.
      Rusty Beck: Bad men are how I make a living. I hang out where all the bad men go. Bad men like to talk to me, and it doesn't hurt anybody to listen.
      Brenda: Not so sure about that.

    • Brenda: And this boy (Rusty), there's something he said.
      Fritz: What?
      Brenda: Gonna be surprised.
      Fritz: Why?
      Brenda: Made me think about my life.
      Fritz: I'm surprised.
      Brenda: Told you!
      Fritz: (Fritz sits down next to her) What did Rusty say?
      Brenda: Am, he said that ah, bad men were how he made a living and it doesn't hurt to just listen to them and that, am, his mother was gone and she wasn't coming back. And, am, I started to think about how sad that story was and then I realized that's me.
      Fritz: You make your living listening to bad people and your mother's gone.
      Brenda: (fighting back tears) And she's never coming back. But Stroh is; that's what I have to look forward to - Stroh coming back.
      Fritz: Where?
      Brenda: Where the bad men go.

    • Capt. Raydor: While Stroh is a person of interest, I will sign off on Chief Johnson's investigation to cover the L.A.P.D.'s liability issues.
      Pope: I can live with that. Chief Johnson?
      Brenda: I came here to arrange surveillance of the suspect, not me. This is what comes of settling lawsuits putting my name on a special order. We have to worry more about what the suspect will do to us than what we're gonna do to the suspect. Didn't think of that, did you?
