" You remember that wallet that you stitched for your father when you were just a little kid?"
"He showed you that?"
" He used it until it started to fall apart and he used it even after then. When I brought him out that time - it must have fallen out of his pocket and got lost. When he got out of the hospital, the first thing he did was go back up there to try to find it."~ Duncan "Buck" Frobisher talking to Benton Fraser in the hospital. (Manhunt, 1x03)

Vecchio: Tuesdays. Ma always made a big pot of pasta fasule. She started boiling the beans early in the morning. You could smell it in every room. It's heaven.

Fraser: Bannock. My grandmother made it.

Vecchio: Taste good?

Fraser: No tasted like a hockey puck. Hard flat unleavened I can still smell it burning in the oven.

"You know, my mother died when I was very young. I don't remember a lot about that time except... except my father's beard. I don't remember him crying or talking about her. I just woke up one morning and I noticed he had a beard, and it kept getting longer and longer, and he got thinner and he stopped going to work. My mother died, and my father stopped living... And then one morning, I woke up and there was a breakfast waiting for me at the table. Oatmeal and, uh, sliced banana. And he was clean shaven. And he was crying."
"Well, your dad was a very strong man."
"He just woke up and the wind was from the south, and he found he still knew the difference between hawk and a handsaw." ~ Constable Benton Fraser to Walter at the mental hospital in Hawk and a Handsaw, 1x12

Ray Vecchio: "You know maybe up in the Arctic Circle you cooperate with your cop friends. I mean, who's going to fight over ice, right?"
Benton Fraser: "Well, actually there was an incident once..."
Lt. Welsh: "I thought they sent you back up to the Yukon?"
Fraser: "Well, they did, sir. And then they sent me back here again. I'm afraid I'm not all that well-liked up there, sir."
Welsh: "By up there, you mean..."
Fraser: "Pretty much all of Canada, sir."

I first came to Chicago on the trail of the killers of my father, and for reasons that do not need exploring at this juncture I have remained, attached as liason to the Canadian Consulate.
