Fun Stuff

From "Quantum Leap: Good Night, Dear Heart - November 9, 1957 (#2.17)" (1990)
Lyle: What do you want me to do, Melvin, arrest Mr. Truesdale for trying to get Hilla an abortion?
Sam: No, I want you to arrest him for murder.
Lyle: I can't do that.
Sam: Why? Because he bought you that badge?
Lyle: Nobody owns me, Melvin. Except maybe my wife.
Sam: Why won't you arrest him?
Lyle: Because, even if what you're saying it true, which I don't believe for a second it is, the D.A. will never prosecute. All you've got is a possible motive. You've got no weapon, not bullet, no witness. Hell, it'll never get past the grand jury. She committed suicide, Melvin. Now, put the poor girl in the ground... before she puts you there, too.
