"Life on Mars: Episode #1.1" (2006)
[Annie complies with Sam's request to hit him by punching him in the kidneys]
Sam Tyler: Ow! Shit!
WPC Annie Cartwright: I'm sorry, sir.
Gene: Aye aye, good girl, prostate probe and no jelly!

Sam Tyler: Now the victim wasn't gagged. Why didn't he gag her, Annie?
WPC Annie Cartwright: Because he needed to, er, he needed to see her mouth, her lips. We have to see the things that we value.
Sam Tyler: Now put yourselves in the mind of this man. You're lonely. Every night you dream of this girl, and she's got big eyes and red ruby lips. So you go out and you find that girl, and you bring her home. But you don't gag her, 'cause you want to see those ruby lips, but you just can't bring yourself to kiss 'em.
WPC Annie Cartwright: You'd get embarrassed, angry, you'd start to blame the girl. It's her fault. She's taunting him by just being there.
Sam Tyler: And then one day you just snap. Strangle her, using bootlace, and the cycle starts all over again with a different girl. And this time, you're positive that you're going to be brave enough to kiss her.
WPC Annie Cartwright: Only you won't be.

WPC Annie Cartwright: We all feel like jumping sometimes, Sam. Only we don't. Me and you, because we're not cowards.
