  • Quotes (16)

    • Lassiter: Detective O'Hara is an officer of the law. She is a competent investigator, efficient with her paperwork, and maintains her workspace in a clean and orderly fashion. But she is, above all things, not hot.

    • Lassiter: Ahh but that's how it starts, one minute they're destroying public property and the next thing you know they're shooting cops.

    • Shawn: Well, at least that gives us the "how". Now we just gotta figure out the "why", which reminds me, Gus, will you please get us those tickets for The Who? Gus: Where? (Gus and Shawn point to each other to acknowledge Gus' sharp comeback.)

    • Shawn: You sure you want to park this close, Dad? We're almost a quarter of a mile away. Henry: Shawn, we're exactly where we should be to get a read on the situation. Shawn: I can literally see the curvature of the Earth from here.

    • Shawn: A candy striper. Really? I didn't even know they made those uniforms for men. Gus: They just started. There was a lawsuit. Shawn: I'm just saying, aim higher.
