However, the angle slightly differs resp. the TV Version is a little closer to the action. Both version then continue with the identical shot of Sarah saying "She had such a green thumb.".

Chief Vaughn: "Then there's this guy."
Sarah: "The eastern brown snake."

Trust me, I'm not in Waterbury for the fine dining."
