1. “Yeah, your mom must be so proud.” -McNally

2. “So, I just compromised the scene of the crime?” -Nash

3. “Is it weird that I find the bickering comforting? Like waves, lapping against the shore.” -Peck

4. “Don’t say ooey gooey center, that’s gross.” -Peck


I really like today’s episode.  it gives us a chance to see a different side of Epstein.  Sure he’s still lovable and nerdy in his own way, but he’s now lying to Sue. I love seeing Detective Nash!  She does a great job at doing her job while doing what’s right at the same time. Also, Peck and Diaz definitely have the set-up of getting back together. Although Peck doesn’t see it yet, Diaz certainly does! Looking forward to more Williams-behind-the-desk action…and to see how well she copes for the rest of her pregnancy. Next week with McNally’s mom looks intense!

Favorite Episode Quotes:

1. “That’s what I love about you McNally.” -Sam Swarek

2. “Dov, you know what you saw.  And we all believe in you.” -Andy McNally

3. “Do you want me to punch you in the face?” -Gail Peck




I liked this episode a lot! The first two were good, but this one had suspense, action, and mystery. This episode revolved around Dov, and I loved it.  He’s one of my top favorite characters and Gregory Smith really sold the emotions this time! As usual, the McNally/Swarek stuff was cute and I sensed some tension between Barber and Nash. Of course she wanted to help Dov! I know that Barber is only doing his job, but he may lose friends in the end if he doesn’t start believing in the ones he has. It’s about time Williams decides to give up being in the field. Uh, hello, you could be shot in the stomach! Still don’t know if I like the new guy (Collins) I really want to see Gail and Diaz together again as Travis Milne promised!
