The Mysteries of Laura Season 1 Episode 22: "The Mystery of the Corner Store Crossfire" Quotes
Jake: Laura, I want you back.
Jake: One last chance, I swear on the lives of our children, I won't let you down. I love you and I think even though you don't want to, you still love me.
Laura: What? Are we really doing this whole emotional manipulation thing now? Again?
Jake: We're doing the truth. Do you, or do you not, still love me? [awkward silence] Laura?
Laura: [In tears] Maybe a little.
Laura: Pamela. Remember me?
Pamela: Been there.
Laura: Believe it or not, I've been here too, not as bad. I can't begin to imagine your suffering, but earlier today I was face to face with the man who shot the father of my children in the chest and I wanted so desperately to shoot him, but I didn't because it wouldn't make anything better for me.
Pamela: Yes it will. It will make the world better. My beautiful girl is dead and this monster is alive. He needs to die too, he needs to.
Laura: I know you believe that in your heart, but I'm here to tell you, mother to mother, the cost is too high.
Pamela: There is no cost. Nobody will miss him and if I die too, that is a price I am happy to pay.
Laura: The cost has already been enormous. The boy who made the gun that is in your hand, he's going to jail and the biker who you bought the gun from [starts tearing up] he was the one who shot my husband who is now fighting for his life in the hospital.
Pamela: I'm so sorry.
Laura: I know you didn't intend any of this -- enough people have suffered. Your daughter would not want this Pamela. So I'm going to count to three and you're going to give me the gun. One. [steps closer] Two. [gets even closer] Three. [grabs the gun and embraces Pamela]
I forgive you, you bastard. Just live.Laura
Jake: You know what this would be good time for?
Laura: Better health insurance?
Jake: For you to forgive me.
Laura: Forgive you for what?
Jake: Everything. Betraying you, for ruining our marriage.
Laura: Only you would use a brush with death to emotionally manipulate me.
Jake: How am I doing?
Laura: Eat your ice.
Not to tell you how to do your job, but you're doing that wrong. [pointing at pillows] I mean at least for him; I'm sure that there are many people that enjoy the pillow under the neck thing, but he has to have his head slightly tilted or else his sinuses clog and then it's, you know, well, lets just say, it gets ugly. Oh and the blanket [goes over to blankets] cannot touch his skin, sheet only. That's a huge, huge bugaboo for him.Laura
Billy: He saved that girl.
Laura: Of course he did, chivalrous bastard.
Billy: Laura, I told you I got this.
Laura: You can run point, but me sitting on my ass staring at ceiling tiles won't help Jake.
