Quotes:
From "Ripper Street: Our Betrayal: Part 2 (#2.8)" (2013)
Detective Inspector Edmund Reid: Say, imagine, we might, you and I, walk into a chophouse on the Commercial Road, and, in that chophouse, we lay our hands upon the shoulder of the man the world made, the Ripper, know him unequivocally for that killer. What would we do?
Chief Inspector Fred Abberline: There is what I would like to do, and there is what I am permitted to do.
Detective Inspector Edmund Reid: And so instead of pinioning his head to the wall through his eyeball, we, we would show him our irons, then go about the process of proof.
Chief Inspector Fred Abberline: We would. I would!
Detective Inspector Edmund Reid: Evil men do as they please. Men who would be good, they must do as they are allowed.
