not a beautiful or unique snowflake

One of the most wretched bits of plotting/writing in CSI: Miami ever.

The scene: Horatio Caine is explaining to Mrs. Gannon that her husband is a con artist.

WIFE: I am such a fool.
CAINE: Mrs. Gannon, you're not a fool. These are pros. This is what they do for a living
WIFE: How can I go home?
CAINE: You can't. These are dangerous people with nothing left to lose--we do have one advantage. They don't know we're onto them yet.

[return from commercial]
HUSBAND: You found my son.
CAINE: Yes, we did. Except he's not your son. Mr. Gannon, we're onto you you have an arrest record that spans back fifteen years now. That's quite a resume.

How can you possibly write something like this, act something like this, direct something like this, or edit something like this and not notice how incredibly nonsensical it is?
