Quotes

Meldrick Lewis: [searching for a weapon or other evidence in a recent homicide] If I could just find this thing, I could go home.

Det. Rene Sheppard: You won't find what you're looking for.

Meldrick Lewis: What? Why not?

Det. Rene Sheppard: It's a mystery.

Meldrick Lewis: Huh?

Det. Rene Sheppard: Life is a mystery. Just accept it.

Meldrick Lewis: Yeah, well, that's what's wrong with this job. It ain't got nothin' to do with life.

Tim Bayliss: You know who I started thinking about today? Gordon Pratt.

John Munch: [shivering] Gordon Pratt? That little weasel who shot Bolander, Felton and Howard?

Tim Bayliss: Yeah...

John Munch: What the hell are you thinking about that little skunk for?

Tim Bayliss: Well, when he got released, uh, Pratt was found shot to death, and... I was put in charge of the investigation.

John Munch: And a great job you did, too...?

Tim Bayliss: I never really closed that case, John.

John Munch: [annoyed] That's what I mean, he shoots three of our own, so he deserves to have an unavenged death!

Tim Bayliss: [halts in his tracks] ... You really believe that?

John Munch: Yes!

Tim Bayliss: [surprised] You believe he deserves to die...?

John Munch: Yes...

Tim Bayliss: And that his murderer should go free?

John Munch: YES!

Tim Bayliss: [Eyes downcast] You know, when I got shot, my whole perception of the universe just... just completely changed! But when I shot that homeless guy, Larry Moss... suddenly, I knew what it was like to take another person's life. Suddenly I was JUST like the person who killed Adena Watson! See, Frank said that I would never be a good homicide detective because I didn't have the 'killer's instinct'. Frank was wrong... you know, I always suspected you.

John Munch: [nervous] Of what?

Tim Bayliss: ...Killing Gordon Pratt.

John Munch: [freezing, looking shocked] Why in god's name after all this time would you pull Gordon Pratt outta the dirt?

Tim Bayliss: I dunno... just... came to my mind.

[creepily reaches forward and strokes his hand through Munch's hair]

Tim Bayliss: Good night, John-Boy.

[walks away, leaving Munch glaring at the sky vengefully]

John Munch: Since I don't practice Billie Lou's religion, I had to sign these papers to agree to raise our kids Catholic.

Laura Ballard: [Horrified at the prospect of Munch, who is over a decade older than Billie Lou, having kids with her] ... Whoa, you mean you guys are...

Billie Lou Hatfield: [firmly] NO.
