McKeen: Control, this is One-David-Two. I have a 444. Officer down in the alley north of the 800 block of Rayson Street. Requesting three backup units and paramedics. I am in pursuit of the suspect. Suspect is a white male, possibly armed, wearing dark clothing, traveling southbound toward Malpassat Road.
Brass: It's all hands on deck. Right now I'm pulling everybody off whatever it is they're doing. Warrick Brown is our only case, okay? Officer Daniel Pritchard is our suspect. The assignments are going to break down generally like this; some of you go to the airport with photos. If Pritchard tries to get on a plane, we grab him. Now, Vegas highway patrol is already setting up roadblocks on all the roads leading out of the city. We have the addresses of his ex-wife, his family, his friends, all his known associates. Most of you will be following those leads. Now look under every rock. If he's within spitting distance, I want him in custody immediately.
Sara: I got the first flight out. Grissom: He didn't want to go, Sara. Sara: Tell me. Grissom: I was holding him. God, I could feel his life. I guess I felt if I could... hold him tight enough, he'd be okay. Sara: You know there is nowhere in the world that he would've rather been at the end. He loved you. Grissom: Yeah. I loved him.
Sara: I'm so sorry. Catherine: It's so good we can all be together. Greg: I'm glad you're here.
Sara: Look, maybe I can pick up some of the slack. I – I know I can't work the case, but maybe I can make some of the, uh... arrangements? Grissom: That'd be great. Greg: I'll help you. Sara: I'd appreciate that. Nick: Since his grandmother passed, we were the only family he had. He once told me he'd like to be buried next to her. Grissom: I went to her funeral with Warrick. She's, uh, buried at the Baptist cemetery on Eastern. Sara: We're going to need a... a key, I guess, to his place. Catherine: I've got one. I went over to his place to get him some fresh clothes when he was in custody. Nick: Warrick was right about Gedda. And he was right about the department. Let's finish this for him.
Warrick: Look, the most important thing you need to know to raise a child is how to give a child love. And I've been loved. Listen, I've always tried to be a good man. I've screwed up. And when I have, there's always been one man in my life that set me straight. I've learned a lot from him. How to be fair. How to forgive. How to be inspired. How to inspire others. Interviewer: That sounds like a special person. Warrick: He is. If I could've picked my own father, I'd have picked him.
Brass: No, Your Honor, we all understand the gravity of this situation. But we're under a lot of pressure, and we have to move fast. No, I didn't call the mayor – I wanted to call you first. He's not at home, he's not at work, and if we tip him off, he'll run. Judge. Judge, I wouldn't call you for a warrant if I wasn't sure.
McKeen: Okay, you want to know why I did it? Warrick had a big mouth, and I had to shut it. I tried to warn him, but he was just too stupid to listen. You know, when I shot him, he had a big... smile on his face. I told him he could keep his job. I didn't have the heart to fire him. Nick: Shut up.
McKeen: He was your friend. What kind of friend are you?! Shoot me, you son of a bitch!
Brass: Nick? Nick: McKeen has a gunshot wound to the stomach. He's lost a lot of blood – we should get the medevac chopper here ASAP. Brass: What was that shot? Nick: A miss.
Grissom: As crime scene investigators, we meet people on the worst day of their lives. They've just lost a family member, somebody they loved, often in a horrible way. A piece of their heart is gone and will never be replaced. The phrase we're trained to offer them, "I'm sorry for your loss," as we know now, doesn't offer much.
Warrick Brown was a young boy when his parents passed away. Much too young to learn that life can be so tragically short. But I think that it taught him how precious life is, and so he lived his life to the fullest each day as if it was his last day.
I was with Warrick on his last day. All the qualities that defined him: his tenaciousness, his deep sense of loyalty, his courage... to risk his life for what he knew was right. All those traits were with him on that last day.
Just before he died... we were all having breakfast together – our team... his friends... his family.
And Warrick was... he was... I'm gonna miss him so much.
