Quotes

Captain Jim Brass: [answers the phone] Brass.
Sheriff Burdick: Family business? That is a wedding or a funeral, or a bar mitzvah. That is not permission to become a vice cop in another jurisdiction! Get back here now.
Captain Jim Brass: Who you've been talking to?
Sheriff Burdick: Not that it matters. The police chief called me after Judge Peters called him. I hear they do a nice t-bone at Musso's.
Captain Jim Brass: Look, my kid's in trouble, Ben.
Sheriff Burdick: Well, if she's not dead, you get your ass back here.
Captain Jim Brass: Look, write me up for insubordination. I can't come back now.

The first time Paul Guilfoyle got screwed over.
21 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Nearly a decade before cowardly producers and serpentine network suits ordered the scumbag firing of Paul Guilfoyle from CSI, he had his finest hour in this episode where HE, not William Peterson, was the anchor. We see Captain James Brass at odds with his superiors back home in Las Vegas and the corruption riddling Los Angeles all while grappling with the life his estranged daughter Ellie is living. Brass is fighting what seems to be a losing battle trying to save Ellie on many fronts, from (A) her descent into prostitution, (B) the hold drugs have over her and (C) those corrupt figures in LA who may see Ellie as a threat. Paul Guilfoyle delivered a command performance in this episode and the assholes at the Emmys refused to even nominate him for 2005's ceremony. A great actor who never got his due, a tale as old as time.
