Coroner Season 1 Episode 8: "Bridges" Quotes
Jones: Did you get me thank you for getting me out of jail present?
Jenny: Dr. Peterson? I mean that was a pretty fucked up thank you.
Jones: Oh, no no. The newspaper article about your sister's death. You dig up my ghosts, I dig up your ghosts. I became interested in you after you helped me. I just- I knew that we had something in common.
Malik: Know where the real money's at? Cannabis stocks.
Kim: It's a bubble.
Malik: Please. You know who's gonna invest in the Malik side hustle?
Kim: Big Mac? Why would he? I'm his favorite.
Kim: When's the last time he texted you? Never. What's his nickname for you? None. You are not his favorite, Malik, and I'll tell you why.
Kim: Here's what he knows about you, you like garbage jewelry, you can't stop eating at only one hotdog, your mom loves your girlfriend more than you, and your dad displays all your Boy Scout badges in his office.
Kim: Here's what he doesn't know about me. I moved away from home when I was 16. I was an elite rower. I live with my girlfriend and our 3 dogs. I won the Tough Mudder last weekend. Here's what he does know about me. I'm a kickass detective, ergo, I'm his favorite.
I just wanted to manage on my own. You know, the morning of my swim meet, he was giving me one of his um "you have to do quadruple as good," lessons, you know, and, as usual, I just tuned him out and I just, I always thought he would be there, and it's like what if I keep forgetting. You know, like, the way he slurped his soup, or the goldfish mobile me made for me for Nowruz, or you know his stupid life lessons. What if I keep forgetting?Ross
Jenny: So, how long have you been self-medicating buddy?
Ross: Since dad died.
Jenny: You know that's no way to cope with life.
Ross: The gummies take the sadness away. I'm just doing what you're doing. You leave your pills in the cup holder all the time.
People like us, who look like we do, don't get the benefit of the doubt. People will always judge us. You're gonna go through your whole life always having to prove yourself. Always. And I'm not gonna be around forever. That's why I'm hard on you now. You need to be better. Stronger. Faster. Smarter. Kinder. So they can't knock you down.David Khalighi
Dr. Allen: I'm very strict about keeping my work-life separate from my personal life. My personal life is full of art and beauty. You know, keep a healthy balance, that's my motto. But Dr. Peterson is affecting me like a normal person.
McAvoy: It's okay to have feelings like a normal person sometimes. Even I do occasionally.
Dr. Allen: It's full circle.
Jenny: What do you mean?
Dr. Allen: My first case, with Dr. Peterson, was at a dig like this. He gave me my first shot.
Jenny: He was your mentor.
Dr. Allen: He didn't deserve to die, violently. In disgrace. He wasn't that good at the end, but before that he was legendary.
Jenny: What do you think happened to him?
Dr. Allen: He saw hundreds and hundreds of dead bodies and it fucked him up! He's dead because you fired him!
Alison: I'm the coroner's officer, not the coroner's babysitter. I have real work to do.
Jenny: Okay, yeah, it's just gonna be a tiny bit longer, all right? I have to go somewhere. He'll be quiet. He'll be on his phone. He'll play videogames.
Alison: And I have a baby inside me. I can't deal with one outside me, especially one who's stoned out of his gills.
Jenny: We are going to treat this just like any other case, okay? Dr. Peterson would want that.
Dr. Allen: Yes he would.
Jenny: What are you doing?
Dr. Sharma: This is EMDR. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy. Follow my fingers.
Dr. Sharma: Your memories of trauma come up involuntarily, but if we bring them up now.
Jenny: You're trying to overload my brain.
Dr. Sharma: Yes, disrupt your defenses, reroute your processing. What memories come up around your sister's death? In any order.
Jenny: I remember ... I remember stairs. I remember them being so high. I look down but I don't remember what I see.
Jenny: My dad told me that Katie tripped over the dog and she fell down the stairs but in that article they describe how she was found and she, she had to have gone over the railing.
Dr. Sharma: You can't know that.
Jenny: I'm a coroner.
