Quotes

Captain Jim Brass: Yeah, not today. But look at you. You've turned yourself into a disposable human being. Don't you get it? You're nothing but plumbing.
Ellie Rebecca Brass: What, you're going to send me to my room and ground me? Have a patrol car pick me up at prom? Or spank me?
Captain Jim Brass: Okay. You're right. You're right. I messed up. But I'm just trying to do the best that I can. I wish you could say the same thing.

The first time Paul Guilfoyle got screwed over.
21 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Nearly a decade before cowardly producers and serpentine network suits ordered the scumbag firing of Paul Guilfoyle from CSI, he had his finest hour in this episode where HE, not William Peterson, was the anchor. We see Captain James Brass at odds with his superiors back home in Las Vegas and the corruption riddling Los Angeles all while grappling with the life his estranged daughter Ellie is living. Brass is fighting what seems to be a losing battle trying to save Ellie on many fronts, from (A) her descent into prostitution, (B) the hold drugs have over her and (C) those corrupt figures in LA who may see Ellie as a threat. Paul Guilfoyle delivered a command performance in this episode and the assholes at the Emmys refused to even nominate him for 2005's ceremony. A great actor who never got his due, a tale as old as time.
