  • Quotes (5)

    • Jonathan Ames: Being a private detective is a chance to be brave. And getting in the ring is a chance to be brave. To test yourself. To feel alive.

    • Jonathan Ames: (at Smooch Cafe) There's all these mothers here, because in Brooklyn, women are very fertile. And there's lots of babies and strollers everywhere.

    • Jonathan Ames: (touring Fort Greene Park) The Williamsburgh Bank Building looms over this park. And I-- I called it once the most phallic building in the world.

    • Jason Schwartzman: I've always loved the private detective character. I always thought they were the coolest. And a lot of my favorite movies have private detectives in them. The ultimate one to me is Stolen Kisses, which is a Truffaut film.

    • Jonathan Ames: In the world of the show, we filmed all over Brooklyn. And we don't really obey the laws of the map. It's all one big mad neighborhood.
