  • This was a very good episode . I'm disappointed that I can find no site that ever shows a complete list of guest stars. Would like to know the star names of the both parents and that of the boy Will.moreless

    Story about a teenage boy who fathered a child (did not reveal until show almost over) with a young lady, but who tragically died due to a simple misunderstanding with a female friend at school. Also makes you understand how a father's mistakes can bring havoc to a family and even to a yet unborn potential family. The father's marital unfaithfulness leads to what his son perceives as a 'betrayal' which ultimately causes a total change in his behaviors, including computer hacking, giving out tests to his friends, an affair with a girlfriend, and his ultimate demise. So far as the main cast characters, depicts an interesting interaction between the new acting chief and the former acting chief.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Jack: (looking at picture of Finn on Samantha's phone) Oh yeah. Looks like he's smiling.
      Samantha: Or he's got gas.

    • Jack watches as Samantha pulls various baby toys, including a rattle and small blue teddy bear, out of her purse before finally finding her gun.
      Jack: You're not going to pull a baby out of there, are you?

    • Malone: (discussing the job of solving missing persons' cases with Medina) The facts are never what they appear to be and there's no amount of training that can prepare you for what people are capable of doing to each other.

    • Jack: I talked to that Wall Street guy.
      Samantha: And?
      Jack: I turned him down.
      Samantha: There were a lot of zeroes on that card.
      Jack: I know. Just thought I'd stick around and see what opportunities open up.
      Samantha: Well, I think that's smart. You know you have a lot of potential.
      Jack: Hm... I think I'll take that as a compliment.

    • Malone: What's your point?
      Medina: My point is - is that it's not about saving people for you, is it? It's a power trip and you just can't stand the fact that I'm spoiling it for you.
      Malone: Thanks very much, but I already have a shrink.
      Medina: All right, all right, here it is. You don't save … a kitten in a tree without coming to me first. Are we clear?
      Malone: Yeah, we're clear. You hate kittens.

    • Jack Malone: Well, generally speaking, that's what "scumbags" do.
