    • Capt. Raydor: Did you know that there was a strong likelihood that after you dropped Mr. Baylor off at his home, he'd be beaten to death by his fellow Cripps.
      Brenda: I did not know that, but do I like happy endings.
      Capt. Raydor: And that answer is exactly why we are not recording this interview. Calling Turrell's murder a happy ending is not something that you want a jury to hear you say.
      Brenda: Sure we do. After they see this interview with the so called victim...
      Capt. Raydor: After they see this interview, they will understand that you were stuck with a confession of a brutal murder of an elderly man and his grandchild that you couldn't use at trial and, lacking legal recourse, you dropped Turrell Baylor off at his home where you knew he was likely to be executed. This interview is not your friend, it is your motive!

    • (at Turell Baylor's house)
      Capt. Raydor: So let's walk through it. After you dropped Turell off leaving him on his own, he ran in to his house, locked the door, and tried escaping through his backyard here, but he didn't get very far, see? (points to blood on the stairs) He broke free and tried to run. But he was caught over here and they dragged him across this driveway to this wall where his head was smashed repeatedly until he was dead. You say that your responsibility ended the moment Turell left your custody and the Warren Rule frees you from criminal liability. But in a civil trial, the jury may very well decide that you behaved with a callous disregard to the suspect's life and if the city attorney starts to think that he is losing this case...
      Brenda: He could settle?
      Capt. Raydor: He could settle and leave you to take the blame and you will be entirely on your own.
      Brenda: So what should I do?
      Capt. Raydor: For your own sake, get your own attorney!
