  • Quotes

    • (about Woody)
      Ms. Kent: So cute, but so dumb.

    • Bug: If I had've known that stakeout was code for providing you with hero sandwiches all night, I might have chosen differently.
      Woody: Chicken Parm! Dig it.

    • Lily: You might wanna stop pointing fingers here, cause in the end you might not like who you're pointing at.

    • (Woody is changing his shirt)
      Bug: You obviously didn't go to the sexual harassment seminar.
      Woody: Yeah I did. That's why I'm not asking you to wrestle.

    • Woody: Why do they call you 'Bug'?
      Bug: Because I like bugs.
      Woody: Well there you go.
      Bug: Why do they call you 'Woody'?

    • Woody: Hi there, Woody Hoyt, Boston PD. Listen I know you run a legitimate business, but could you patch me through to the hookers?

      Garret: I'm starting to feel uncomfortable with this conversation.
      Peter: Me too.

    • Bug: And he's a reporter.
      Woody: How do you know that?
      Bug: Calloused fingertips, mysteriously empty tape recorder. Oh, and because his press badge says so.

    • Woody: You sure you don't want me to get Nigel to help you out.
      Bug: You know what if you love Nigel so much you should marry him.
      Woody: You can actually do that now in Vermont.

    • Woody: Any way to determine her age in the autopsy?
      Bug: Sure I'll just cut her open and count her rings.
      Woody: You could have simply said no.

    • Macy: Get your coat.
      Dr. Winslow: But it's pouring!
      Macy: We're like the post office. Neither rain, nor sleet...

    • All the News Fit to Print

      The title of this episode is a variation of the NY Times motto "All the News That's Fit to Print". This motto has been used by the NY Times for over 110 years.

    • Macy: We're like the post office. Neither rain, nor sleet...

      Lines supposedly from the Ancient Greek historian Herodotus, "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds," are engraved on the exterior of the U.S. Postal Service building in New York City; they are often erroneously cited as the official motto of the USPS.

    • Bug: You know what if you love Nigel so much you should marry him.
      Woody: You can actually do that now in Vermont.

      In Vermont it is not actually a marriage but a "civil union" between a same sex couple, passed by House and Senate in 2000.

    • Bug: Sure I'll just cut her open and count her rings.

      Bug is referencing the fact that you can determine the age of a tree…by counting its rings.
