  • This episode was kind of weird.

    8.0
    It was a nice twist that the girl really did it but why did Cindy get shot? I mean, that was totally pointless and except for the shooting scene itself, the other members of the club didn't care much. They could have achieved the same effect if any other journalist got shot. That was kind of off, really.



    Also, I don't have anything against Lindsay's new love interest but I would have much preferred, if they kept Joe Flannigan if they had to give Lindsay a boyfriend. That relationship would have been much more intriguing *shrugs* This new guy, that was totally out of left field.moreless
  • FIRE THAT D.A.

    2.0
    That DA needs to be fired immediately. How dare she stand there and spout rape MYTHS. The rape victim deserved it because she drank and made out with guys? That is complete BS. This sort of outdated mentality is why it's ILLEGAL to bring in what the victim wore or her sexual history.



    And the reporter at first claiming to not be a feminist?

    Is this something to be ashamed of?



    Both these women obviously missed out on the feminist movement of the last several decades.



    This show is obviously written by men.



    I see another epsiode like this I will not watch.



    I'll be writing ABC to tell them too!moreless

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Judge Henderson: Counselor, what are you doing here at six in the morning?
      Jill: I need a warrant signed, Judge, and you're always in early.
      Judge Henderson: Jay Osborne... the Hammond rape? Search warrant, huh. You really have probably cause for murder?
      Jill: This one time, if you could do me a favor. I admit it's a stretch, we may get slammed on appeal.
      Judge Henderson: Let 'em try. (signing warrant) I hate rapists.

    • Jacobi: (Noticing Pete) Linds, you got company.
      Lindsay: Hi.
      Pete: I, uh, I didn't want to wait 'til tomorrow to see you. I hope you don't mind.
      Lindsay: I'm terribly annoyed you didn't speak to my social secretary.

    • Jacobi: (Laying down photos on the desk) These were taken from eight kids' cell phones, each is a photo of Kate. They were all taken before midnight until just after two, not more than 19 minutes between any of them.
      Tom: How far was the party from the track?
      Jacobi: Under half a mile.
      Tom: That's plenty of time to leave the party, kill him, and get back.
      Lindsay: There's one minor problem; it was pouring rain. She's not wet in any of those pictures and her hair's the same. So, she has to walk, or drive, half a mile. If she drives there can't be any traffic. She has to shoot him, get back, not get her clothes wet, or change into identical clothes, and keep her hair dry, and do it all in 19 minutes. It's impossible.

    • Lindsay: Jay, your best friend is dead and you're going to jail. Do you know why? Because you and Colin decided that if you wanted something, you could just take it. You think about that.

    • Cindy: (As Jay's lawyer speaks to a crowd of gathered reporters) Jay's press conference, brought to you by Barnum & Bailey.
      Lindsay: Did anyone bring popcorn?
      Jill: Go knock him down a peg or two.
      Cindy: Oh, I will bring the heated questions.
      Jay: (To the reporters) I'm sorry for that poor girl Kate Hammond and my friend Colin, who I miss every day.
      Lindsay: He's gonna miss the next twenty years of his life when we nail him for rape.
      Jill: Add five years for drugging her.
      Claire: Amen.

    • Lindsay: (As Leon reaches for his gun) Don't put your hand on that! I have my hand on mine, he has his hand on his. Come on!

    • Leon: Why don't you lose grandpa, take a seat, and the three of us can have some fun.
      Lindsay: Is that so?
      Leon: You're pretty hot for a cop, just like my girl here.
      Lindsay: He's right Rita, you do look good.
      Officer Howe: Thanks, Lindsay.
      Lindsay: Yeah, I know your date. Officer Howe and I work together.
      (Leon looks surprised)

    • Pete: (After Kate yells at her) If it's any consolation, that wasn't about you.
      Lindsay: I'm not so sure. You spend your whole life trying to do the right thing and sometimes you have to wonder: is doing the right thing the right thing to do? (Pete looks confused) What?
      Pete: Lindsay, I get up every day and have to believe I do what I do better than anyone in the world. It's completely crazy... and I can't help it. But you, you demand perfection of yourself like no one I have ever seen.
      Lindsay: I don't wanna be a perfect person.
      Pete: I know you don't wanna be a perfect person, you wanna be a perfect cop. And even if you were, Linds, you'd still feel bad right now.

    • David: Rape victim kills rapist, that's the story.
      Cindy: Not yet it isn't. We don't know if she killed him.
      David: Do we think she was raped?
      Cindy: Personally, yeah. She's eighteen, there's no upside for her unless she's crazy, which she isn't. I read an interview in the campus paper, she doesn't sound like some pathetic creature who needs attention.
      David: Don't bring out the feminist guns!
      Cindy: I'm not a feminist... maybe I am but it's not important.

    • Jacobi: She says she wanted him alive. Did she?
      Lindsay: I don't know.
      Jacobi: Since when did you walk away from a suspect without an opinion?
      Lindsay: I don't have opinions, I have theories.

    • Jacobi: Now, if you were raped and they didn't charge the guy, how would you feel?
      Lindsay: Not angry enough to kill him.
      Jacobi: Are you sure?

    • Officer: Hey Boxer, how was your evening last night?
      Lindsay: (To Jacobi) Good morning. What's that about?
      Jacobi: The guys are running a pool on whether you slept with your boyfriend yet.
      Lindsay: That's incredibly offensive... did you pick 'yes' or 'no'?
      Jacobi: I only bet on sure things.

    • Jill: How is Pete? Sleep with him yet?
      Lindsay: Don't be shy or anything.

    • Lindsay: (To Martha, her dog) I don't know, I can't talk about sex with Claire or Cindy or... Jill, she has sex with anyone that moves. Okay, in your experience is the third date too soon? (Martha whimpers)

    • Claire: If I walk up to you with a gun, what do you do?
      Lindsay: Take out mine?
