    • Barney: Look, look, Shriker. Mr. Fuzzo here has a hansom cab. And he needed a horse. Shriker: Didn't he know that?

    • Barney: This is beautiful. Rioting, fistfights, vandalism—it's a lovely way to celebrate the bicentennial. Fish: You get to be 200 years old, I guess you get a little cranky.

    • Fish: When Bernice and I were courting, we used to ride a lot in a hansom cab. We'd sit there and hold hands and I couldn't help thinking, looking at the back end of that horse, "is he trying to tell me something?"

    • Barney Detective Wojciehowicz is going send out an APB on the missing animal. Do you have a description? Wojo: Oh, yeah: Brown eyes, brown hair, two white stockings, stands about 6' 3", and weighs about 1,200 pounds. Hey, Barn? Whadya say we don't tell 'em it's a horse? Barney: I think you better tell them. They may come up with somebody.
