While I was watching an episode from CSI Miami: Season 9, I heard Horatio Caine saying this:
You know, Ruben, separate from everything, separate from anything you can put down on paper or maybe even drive off a lot, is the value of a human life. And at the end of the day, that's all that really matters to me. I'm saying that if this baby dies, they're going to be finding pieces of you... all over Biscayne Bay.
The bold line wasn't clear to me. What is he trying to say? Why is he referring to "put down on paper or drive off a lot"? I don't get it. Please help me understand this.
