I'm Howard Grey and, uh, Ed helped himself to our buffet without asking and walked off with two brownies. We waited while he went upstairs to eat and then, after he choked to death on his own rudeness and his cries for help kind of petered out, uh, I propped him up in one of those kitchen chairs and called 911. And, we're very sorry your honor, and we promise never to let someone kill themselves again.

Rios: Oh God. Don't ya just love gang cases.
Sanchez: I don't think this is gangs.
Rios: Why? The vehicle was found in gang territory with a gang weapon in the back seat....
Sanchez: A gang wouldn't leave the car on the street like that...
Rios: I'm not finished! Speedy and his Third Streeters, they think it was gangs. It was a drive by. Plus I...
Sanchez: Plus you need to watch your mouth.
Rios: Excuse me?
