    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In true Provenza fashion, all of the dummies he was 'hitting' with his car in the alley bore names of women, likely the names of his many ex-wives. Provenza originally gave the dummies his ex-wives' names in the Season Three episode Out of Focus, in which the dummies were hurled off of a balcony in a variety of ways.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Lt. Tao: (Discussing the original case in 1999) It was all over the news.
        Brenda: Not in Atlanta.

      • Lt. Flynn: Amazing. Two pieces of bulls**t in the same sentence. First of all, Carly wasn't his girlfriend; he picked her up in a bar! And second? Manslaughter, my a**!
        Lt. Provenza: It was Flynn's case. I think it's safe to say he took issue with the jury's verdict.

      • Brenda: (Uncovering the body of Roy Wilkinson) Oh! What is that smell?!
        Lt. Tao: Margaritas. One is never enough, two is too many and twelve, well...you're lookin' at twelve.

      • Brenda: My hit-and-run turned out to be a hit and walk around the block...and then hit him again...and run.

      • Brenda: Anything useful come out of Commander Taylor's press release?
        Daniels: Four calls saying it is a good day, a guy called and said that he killed Roy Wilkinson though he claimed he shot him, an insurance agency, a couple of ambulance-chasing lawyers, and thirteen people reporting reckless drivers.
        Provenza: ...and a partridge in a pear tree.
