Quotes

Ray Vecchio: Does the word 'incarcerate' mean anything to you?
Constable Benton Fraser: Well, it's from the medieval Latin, 'incarcerata', to imprison.
Ray Vecchio: Medieval Latin? You let a perp go and you're giving me medieval Latin?
Constable Benton Fraser: Actually, 'perpetrator' is also Latin, from 'perpetrare'...
Ray Vecchio: Shut up, okay? Just shut up!

A Fair Beginning
12 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Coming off a strong Pilot, this episode would not be classified as one of the best but it began to set up the main relationships that would develop during the series. Fraser, who would constantly insert himself into situations as the polite, intrepid, do-gooder with unwavering integrity. Ray, the reluctant buddy/comic foil and Lt Walsh, the weary, put-upon leader.

A strange example where the plot is not as good as the story. Fraser and Ray solve the case with Holmesian logic and capture the bad guys in a very good action sequence. Lots of humour as the Canadian from the Far North tries to weave his ways through the vagaries of concrete jungle of Chicago with the cynical assistance of Ray.
