Channel your guilt

From CSI: Miami, episode "Tinder Box".

HORATIO
You okay? What's the matter?

RONNIE
I'm going to resign. Wanted you to be the first to know.

HORATIO
Ronnie, you could not have prevented what happened in there.

RONNIE
All those souls, Horatio.

HORATIO
I understand that, but we need more good men, not less. And now more than ever. You know that.

RONNIE
The guilt...

HORATIO
Ronnie, the guilt keeps you sharp. It makes us better. Will you at least think about this?

RONNIE
Thanks, Horatio.

Horatio Caine is obviously no grammarian, as his line "We need more good men, not less" should really be "We need more good men, not FEWER."

But I guess we taxpayers don't pay him the big bucks to understand the concept of parallel quantities, we pay him to solve crimes with science and to whip his sunglasses off his gigantic pale head.
