Quotes

Natalie Teeger: You can't just take mail from somebody's porch.
Darrell Cain: Yeah, you can if it's fruit. The law doesn't apply to fruit because it's perishable.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Actually, sir, the law does apply to fruit.
[turns to Disher, who is eating a nectarine from the box]
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Are you eating one?
Lt. Randall Disher: Nope. I was just putting that back.

Too Far-Fetched For Any Kind Of Credibility
13 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

An astronaut, nearing a mission, is at a girlfriend's place where she reveals to him that he's in chapter five of her new book. Apparently, it's a sexy book. Since the astronaut may also be running for political soon, he obviously don't want this book published. I say "obviously" because he is shown putting poison in her drink.

Five days later, a maid comes in and sees the dead woman hanging. It didn't take a genius to see this wasn't a suicide. Even Capt. Stottlemeyer deduces this in a hurry. So, how do they find out it's the astronaut who killed the woman?

A so-so episode that started off very promising but wound up with a bunch of unrealistic and stupid scenes, such as the classroom scene, the exaggerated character of the astronaut (played well, however, by Jeffrey Donovan) throughout and the ending - none of which were very credible.
