[Neil is in Ted Hoffman's office. They are discussing a letter Neil received from an obsessed fan. In the letter, the fan confesses to Jessica Costello's murder]
Theodore Hoffman: We should find out where Holly Gerges is currently living. If she's inclined to confess to the murder of Jessica Costello, Ray Velacek and I ought to have a little talk with her. Her hands fit around Jessica Costello's throat as easily as anyone else's.
[a key witness for the defense has just died of unknown causes while in police custody. Ted Hoffman believes Richard Cross is involved]
Theodore Hoffman: What are the actuarials of a woman in her thirties dropping dead on cue?
Ray Velacek: If it was a hit, it was pretty sophisticated.
Theodore Hoffman: Richard Cross is a pretty sophisticated guy.
[Ted Hoffman confronts Richard Cross about all the vile things he's done recently]
Theodore Hoffman: I know what you did Richard; even if I'll never be able to prove it. Just as I know you were involved in this girl's murder; and Dave Blalock's; and Jessica Costello's. Blow all the smoke you want, I see right through it. I see through the alibis, the surrogates, the veils of lies and deception, to the sickness at the core of your being.
Richard Cross: [Speaking softly] I'm going to leave now before any more hurtful things are said that might make it that much harder to mend fences later on. Good night my friend.
