Memorable Moments


  • Dominic: Okay, here's rule number one, all right? Before you call the coroner's service, you gotta have yourself a body. If they're still alive, what do you do? You call an ambulance. Okay?
Uniform #3: She wasn't breathing. She had no pulse.
Dominic: Half the people in the city haven't got a pulse, that doesn't mean they're dead.
  • Leo: Everybody's looking for a pattern. Shit. It's random. Take a look out the freaking window. It's chaotic. That's the pattern - there's no pattern. "What's in the woods today that I can kill?" That's all. The guy is a hunter; they're the game. God forbid it's your day to get bagged.
Dominic: Okay then, but when you're out on the street, you might warn to warn the wildlife.
  • Gabriella: (to her parents) God, all you two do all day long is look at dead people. You're paranoid!
