Episode Quotes
Grant Hoschen: I'm a public defender, not a miracle worker. I deal with fifteen cases a day, I have no personal life. Can I offer anybody a tissue?

Hank: I'm sorry I dragged you into this.
Nick: You didn't. My family did.
Hank: Well as long as you got somebody else to blame, let's do this.

Craig Ferren: I don't know why you believed me when no one else would.
Hank: I believe there are things that we don't understand in this world. That doesn't mean they don't exist.



Cultural References
Title: To Protect and Serve Man

The title is play on the Twilight Zone episode "To Serve Man". Aliens helping mankind leave behind a book and the government, translating only the title, believe the book instructs the aliens in how to help humans. At the end they translate the rest of the book and realize that it is a cookbook.
