    • Karma: Wait. Are you kidding me? I thought you said this story was about a princess, not some cops chasing some dude.
      Adam: It is. I'm just setting it up. Okay? See? It's called backstory.
      Karma: Well, how about getting to the front story?

    • Dee: If you're a cop, why can't you report your stolen car to yourself?
      Adam: Well, 'cause I'm not a cop. No, I mean, I work with cops. Yeah, I do cop stuff, but I'm a... I'm a Crime Scene Investigator.

    • Jo: Mac?
