laziest character development ever

Heard from the female lead role during the pilot for J.J. Abrams new show "Fringe":

"Petty bastard. He's pissed because his best friend sexually assaulted three marine privates, and I'm the bad guy cos I put him away"

and later:

"If my past job performance as U.S Marine Special Investigator offends you..."

Nothing like having to fit an entire back story into a couple of lines of dialogue.
