  • Quotes (4)

    • Mayflower: Say, man, since when is it a crime to come to the defense of a lady and try and protect her honor? Since when?
      Harris: When you push her trick out of a second-story window.

    • Fish: (on the phone to Mona) Now, I'm going to give you some advice. Next time call Madison 8-5642. (hangs up)
      Barney: That's the Fire Department!
      Fish: She's in heat, isn't she?

    • Barney: Nick, where do we keep the office supply vouchers? Yemana: Look in the file under O. Or S. Or V. If not, then M, for miscellaneous. And if you don't find it in M, they're lost. Barney: Then I look under L? Yemana: Good a place as any.

    • Barney: Did you ever wonder why the sperm whale, which is the largest mammal on the face of the earth, has a throat about that size? (forms a circle with his thumb and fingers) Chano: Yeah. You know, I always did wonder. Why is that? Barney: Because that's the way it is. And there ain't anything you can do about it.

    Notes (2)

    • This is the first of Cal Gibson's three, unrelated appearances on Barney Miller. He can also be seen in season three's "Moonlighting" and season seven's "Dorsey."

    • Todd Bridges would later play Loomis on the Barney Miller spinoff, Fish.

    Trivia (1)

    • Despite Barney's story about the Sperm Whale being the largest mammal alive, the Blue Whale is actually biggest animal that has ever existed.
