  • Yokas and Miller are trying to catch a serial killeer.

    This episode was very good, it make me miss the series Homicide!

    I do not think Yokas was playing a role in the interview with the killer, I think she did not know what she was doing there.

    Chris Elliot was very convincing, why do comedians play killers so well?

    • {to Yokas about Jeffrey}
      Miller: Of course, I could just break one finger at a time until he tells us.

    • Miller: Go talk to him.
      Yokas: Me?
      Miller: Yeah. Yeah, you.
      Yokas: No. I've never interrogated a prisoner before.
      Miller: You're what we have. Jelly's busy with the Finney shooting and if I go in there, I might kill him, which…would leave us with nothing.

    • Jeffrey: Bring Miller in here. C'mon. Let's go.
      Yokas: Oh, he's busy.
      Jeffrey: He's busy? Doing what?
      Yokas: Police work.

    • Jeffrey: All right, so Miller is supervising you.
      Yokas: No. We're working together.
      Jeffrey: Uh, huh, right. Miller does not work with anyone.

    • Jeffrey: Miller is the best of the best. "The world's greatest detectives," right?

    • Jeffrey: Do you know that he visits her grave?
      Yokas: Who?
      Jeffrey: Miller. He visits Rebecca's grave. Sometimes he'll just go there and he'll sit all by himself.
      {Miller walks in}
      Jeffrey: Oh, look who's not so busy anymore.

    • Jeffrey: Good cop, bad cop. Nicely done.
      Yokas: Look, neither one of us feels much like playing good cop, so don't push your luck.

    • Jeffrey: Hey, Lieutenant Miller? You shouldn't feel ashamed about going to Rebecca's grave. I visit her, too. I visit all of 'em. Do you ask her to forgive you, too?
      Miller: What do I have to be forgiven for?
      Jeffrey: Well, you couldn't stop me.

    • Miller: Smile, jag-off.
      {Miller takes Jeffrey's picture}
      Miller: You're under arrest for the murder of Rebecca Hatfield. Get up. Take everything out of your pockets and remove any jewelry.
      Jeffrey: Okay, see, sweetheart, this is called procedure.
      Yokas: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to have an attorney present during any questioning.

    • Yokas: Do you understand your rights?
      Jeffrey: Yes, ma'am.
      Yokas: Do you wish to answer any questions?
      Jeffrey: Some.
      Miller: {picking up Jeffrey's keys} What are these to?
      Jeffrey: Oh, geez, see, that's one I don't want to answer.

    • Jeffrey: Hey, where are you going?
      Miller: I'm a lieutenant of police. I don't have time for games.
      Jeffrey: This is not a game!

    • Finney: Why do I have to go to the hospital?
      Davis: It's trauma. Procedure.
      Finney: Well, what if I'm not traumatized?
      Davis: I wouldn't tell anybody that, okay? You don't wanna give the impression that you can just take a life without conscience.

    • Dr. Fields: …you're gonna be all right.
      Carlos: I told you, I'm a pro. I get hit in the head all the time.
      Dr. Fields: You do?
      Carlos: Umm…yeah?

    • Carlos: You said I was gonna be okay.
      Dr. Fields: Repeated head trauma's serious.
      Carlos: I don't get hit all the time. I exaggerate, a lot.

    • Levine: Carlos!
      Carlos: Oh, no.
      Levine: Oh my God. Oh my God. I just heard. Are you all right? Oh my God, you could've been killed.
      Carlos: I…should be so lucky.

    • Jeffrey: I want what I've always wanted. I want to be stopped.
      Yokas: You could've stopped at any time.
      Jeffrey: I have no more control over this than you do over the fact that you have to go to the bathroom right now. That's like your eighth cup of coffee. I know that women have notoriously small bladders.
      Yokas: I can hold it.

    • {to Finney}
      Capt. Finney: Took out a guy with a gun to a hostage's head. If that's not Medal of Honor, I don't know what is. I'm damn proud of you, son. Damn proud. Outstanding work.

    • Davis: We were just telling him how there's no shame in seeing a counselor after a trauma like this.
      Capt. Finney: don't be ridiculous. This young man's been waiting for this moment since he could walk.
      Finney: Told you I was good, Davis. I don't want to see any damn shrink.
      Davis: Right. My bad.

    • {about the IAB investigation into the shooting}
      Davis: Impartial and objective, my ass.

    • {to Swersky about Finney}
      Davis: He just killed a guy, boss. That's not easy. You know that. On the way over here he was…I don't know. He was different. It was like a light went out or something.

    • Jeffrey: Detective Yokas? You know it's…it's not healthy to hold all that inside.
      Yokas: What?
      Jeffrey: Just make sure you go to the bathroom.

    • {to Swersky about Jeffrey}
      Yokas: I have never wanted to hurt somebody so bad.

    • {at the hospital}
      Carlos: I gotta spend the night.
      Davis: Got you in the head again.

    • Finney: What happened?
      Grace: Like you, nothing I want to remember. Good night.
      Finney: Grace, wait. Now, look, are you all right?
      Grace: It was 15 minutes in a bathroom, Finney. Get over yourself.

    • Jeffrey: You know, when I got here, I was really angry. But now I'm just very disappointed. I expected a lot more from you people. I was in Dubuque, Iowa. And I saw this documentary on your little Son of Sam and the detective being interviewed was sitting underneath that big banner "the greatest detectives in the world." And that's why I came here. That's why I came to New York.

    • Monroe: I just finished a DUI. The guy blew a .39.
      Davis: Damn.
      Monroe: That's almost comatose.
      Davis: You drink long enough, your tolerance goes up.
      Monroe: Well, then he's been drinking since the 50s.

    • Davis: You know, Carlos is in the hospital. Got hit in the head again.
      Monroe: Oh, that's been happening a lot lately.

    • Yokas: This is a game to you.
      Jeffrey: Yeah, life and death. The ultimate game.

    • Jeffrey: I didn't want this from you! I came here to be stopped! I wanted Miller to stop me! The best of the best!
      Yokas: You don't want to be stopped, Jeffrey! You think this is a game! And in a half an hour, all you will have done is hurt someone who is weaker than you! And if that somehow makes you feel important, then God…God help you.

    • {to Monroe, after finding the picture of the knife}
      Davis: You know, I like you and everything, but, uh, you have a strange idea of what makes a good souvenir.

    • Davis: That's not exactly a memento I would've chosen.
      Monroe: It isn't.
      Davis: It's the knife we were almost killed with. I'd think that's something you'd wanna forget. I didn't even know there was a picture of it. Last time I saw it was in the hospital. Cruz had it.

    • Miller: You think I didn't try?
      Jeffrey: I expected something better from you.
      Miller: Oh. Yeah, well, maybe I expected a little bit more from myself.

    • Miller: You know, when I came in here…I was gonna kill you.
      Jeffrey: Oooh.

    • {to Miller}
      Jeffrey: See…I kinda feel like you and me are very much alike. We're both very driven men.

    • {to Jeffrey}
      Miller: You and I…are nothing alike. You rat bastard, son of a bitch. After I bring her home alive…I'm gonna male you real sorry you ever came to New York.

    • {about Jeffrey}
      Yokas: He's pretty pissed off for a guy that wanted to get caught.
      Miller: He wanted to win.

    • Capt. Finney: Sergeant Cruz, you're under arrest for the murder of Donald Mann. Confiscate her weapon. Cuff her…Now get her out of here.
