Presumed Innocent (1990)
John Spencer: Detective Dan Lipranzer
Det. Lipranzer : How ya doin'? Christmas present.
[takes out glass which was key piece of evidence that went missing during the trial]
Rusty Sabich : You're sticking your neck out pretty far on this one, Lip.
Det. Lipranzer : It was *them* that fucked up. Remember when they came around and gathered *all* the evidence? The glass wasn't there, I took it down to Dickerman. The next day, I get a call. The test is done, I can come pick up my glass. But when I went down there, Molto had already signed the receipt 'returned to evidence.' I guess they figured I'd put it back. Only, I got no reason to put it anyplace since it ain't my Goddamned case anymore. So I tossed the thing in my drawer. I figure sooner or later someone's gotta ask me about it. Nobody did.
Rusty Sabich : You think I killed her.
Det. Lipranzer : The lady was bad news.
Rusty Sabich : So that makes it okay that I killed her.
Det. Lipranzer : Did ya?
Rusty Sabich : Oh, pal.
[sigh, tosses glass into the water]
