"Joan of Arcadia" Bringeth It On (TV Episode 2003) Poster

(TV Series)


April Grace: Det. Toni Williams


  • Det. Toni Williams : We couldn't get any prints off the bookbag, but the baby was wrapped in the type of paper towls you find in public restrooms.

    Will : Well, that narrows it down. Two safe havens within a mile of the dumpster; a hospital and St. Clements Church. Why not deposit the child there? What's wrong with this country? What use is the safe haven law when babies keep showing up in the garbage?

  • Det. Toni Williams : Most mothers who abandon their newborns are young girls, so they either don't know about the safe haven law, or more likely, they're in deep denial about their situation. They're unable to acknowledge the pregnancy to themselves or anyone else. I mean, it's not just a coping mechanism. It's clinical denial.

    [noticing a thought strike Will] 

    Det. Toni Williams : Chief. I was trying to impress you with my psychological insight.

    Will : No, I heard you. Young girls, a bookbag, institutional paper towels. What's that add up to?

    Det. Toni Williams : High school.
