Chicago Justice Season 1 Episode 6: "Dead Meat" Quotes
Jeffries: Why? Why did he kill Cody?
Stone: You know, motive is not one of the elements of murder.
Jeffries: You ever thought maybe he beat you on the arson case cause he told a better story?
Beckett: You know what I think? I think this is it for you. Day after day putting away the bad guys. But one of these days you're gonna wake up in the morning, brush your teeth, shave, look in the mirror... and realize you're the one in the cage.
Stone: But here I am.
Jeffries: You're grinning like a twice-shot fox.
Peter: What does that mean?
Jeffries: Dunno, but my ma used to say it right before she smacked the smile off my face.
Peter: My dad, he was a big ADA back East. He tried to make it to all my games when his trial schedule allowed. Senior year, we made it to the finals. He canceled everything, made it to all my games. Sat in the same seat every time. It's the bottom of the sixth, I'm on the mound, I look up and his seat is empty. I didn't hear from him for three days.
Valdez: He didn't call?
Peter: I didn't TAKE his calls. Screw him, right? So finally, he comes home. It turns out he caught a homicide. Ten-year-old girl. He said to me, 'Someday you're going to meet someone who's lost the most important thing to them, and when you do, if you don't do something to ease the pain, what good are you?'
Laura: I wonder if there's a bar around here.
Dawson: I could sure use one.
Laura: Not for us. The alcohol in Cody's blood... he didn't have a mini-bar in his room.
Beckett: Detective Dawson.
Dawson: SA Investigator now.
Beckett: I know we have a relationship, but if you're looking for retail you're gonna have to go to the shop.
Laura: Can you tell me what's in your freezer?
Cop: What is this, Jeopardy?
Dawson: Just answer the question.
Cop: A couple of brats, some mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Laura: No cash?
Laura: Your partner -
Cop: Former partner.
Laura: Cody had almost 40 grand in his freezer.
Cop: You want to go looking through my underwear drawer, go ahead. I got nothing to hide. If Cody was into something, I didn't know about it.
Laura: When was the last time you saw him?
Cop: The last time I said hello was about two weeks ago. Dying guys give me the willies. Have a good day.
Laura: So someone went to a lot of trouble to make this look like a suicide.
Dawson: Like we'd miss a broken neck.
Jonesy: Slit wrists. It was obviously a suicide.
Dawson: Hot water. Whoever did this wanted the body to decompose.
Jonesy: Excuse me, did you just say whoever did this? We know who did this. He killed himself.
Laura: Look again, Officer. What's missing?
[as Jonesy looks] Dawson: The knife.
Laura: Maybe Officer Jonesy can get us some coffee.
Dawson: What a terrible way for a cop to go.
Jonesy: Wait a second, did you just say he was a cop?
Dawson: You mean your boss didn't tell you?
Laura: Officer Jonesy, meet Officer Ted Cody, Chicago PD.
