Brother's Keeper

  • Trivia

    • Surely the timeline at the beginning of the episode is way off. When Meredith calls Tru at the morgue and explains about Harrison, Tru already knows because the body has been delivered. Yet as we see from the Meredith scene, Harrison has only just been arrested and police are still at the scene. It would need an ME to pronounce the death at the scene and all kinds of forensic stuff, so how come the body arrived well before Harrison was even arrested? For that matter, how come Meredith is at the scene? He wouldn't have been allowed to call a lawyer until he arrived at the police station surely? Even if he'd asked for Meredith, she'd have to meet him at the precinct.

  • Quotes

    • Tru: I don't work for your wife. I'm here to help you.
      Andrew: Help me with what?
      Tru: Live to see tomorrow.
      Andrew: Is that a threat?
      Tru: No, it's not. But if I'm gonna help you I need you to be honest with me.

    • Andrew: So, tell me about the book. Beer? Wine? Can I get you something?
      Tru: Why do I think you're not interested in the book?
      Andrew: Why do I think you're one of the most perceptive women I've met lately?

    • Tru: Harrison, look at me, would you look at me? 22 years old and one way or another I've lost everyone I've ever loved. Our mother to a bullet, our father to lack of interest, Meredith to coke and ambition; don't you see? I can't lose you too, otherwise I'll have no one left. I'm cursed because I can see the future. If you go there right now, I'll have no one. Without you I'm all alone.
      Harrison: You will never lose me Tru.

    • Davis: We're all someplace for a reason, just sometimes we need to accept what that reason is.

    • Harrison: (to Tru when meeting Sarah) For the future, two topics are off-limits when meeting my new girlfriends: my exes and their exes.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Title: Brother's Keeper
      Brother's Keeper was a documentary movie with a similar plot to this episode.

      It is also a reference to the story of Cain and Abel from the Bible. After Cain has killed Abel, God asks where Abel is and Cain replies 'I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?' The wider implication is that we all have responsibility for everyone, particularly relevant in Tru's case, of course.
