Wrong Place, Wrong Time


When a veteran cop is murdered in the line of duty, Jordan leads the police and vengeful Detective Eddie Winslow -- Max's former partner -- to a possible suspect. But after the shooter dies in police custody, Garret must launch a coroner's investigation to see if Detective Winslow went too far while making the arrest. Also, Garret opts to forgo his annual Christmas feast with his ex-wife, Maggie and join Lily for a Thai dining experience, angering his daughter, Abby, while Trey worries if Nigel's invitation for a weekend on the ski slopes also includes a slalom under the sheets.

Trey: "Listen, you've known Nigel longer than I have. Is he...?"
Bug: "What?"
Trey: "You know!"
Bug: "Oh... you know I have no idea."
Trey: "So he's never come onto you?"
Bug: "Well, there was that one time he asked me to marry him, but I’m pretty sure that was just business. Why do you care?"

Trey: "But that's two girls; two girls is a whole different thing!"
Bug: "Yeah..."


Maggie: "You're the death expert. Is there such thing as justifiable homicide of a seventeen-year-old?"
Garret: "I say the smart money's on Abby taking us both out first."
