    • Fish: Women are such fools for stuff like this. Bernice would do anything for a fur coat. If she could do anything.

    • Barney: (has called Harris, Chano and Wojo into his office) I just got a call from downtown. Due to budgetary considerations... Certain lay-offs have been indicated.
      Harris: You mean us?
      Barney: Yeah.
      Wojo: The four of us?

    • Harris: Hey, man. They already closed down three fire stations. They could do the same thing to us.
      Chano: Not as long as there's more crimes than fires. You see the thing is people commit crimes to eat. But people don't set fires to eat.
      Fish: They do if they want something hot.
