Goof: Before Danny and Stella walk into the cafe to talk to Theodore Gates, the little boy takes the straw. However when the scene changes after Danny and Stella walk in Gates has the straw again.
Goof: The owner of the knitting needle stated that she knitted for her dog the blanket the animal is sitting on. However, that blanket is crocheted and not knitted.
Goof: When Mac gives Aiden the dog's water bottle to test, she unscrews and removes the cap. A few seconds later she removes it again.
Goof: When Stella finds the murder weapon – a Swiss army knife – the scissor blade still attached to the knife is clean. When Danny looks at the knife in the lab, the blade is still clean. Once he puts it under the microscope to compare it with the other blade found in the victim's wound, the blade is bloody. When he next inspects the knife for other traces, the blood is gone again.
Stella: (Accepting a hotdog from Mac) Boy, you really know how to treat a girl.
Stella: He wasn't stabbed here, so this is our secondary crime scene.
Cop: Who knows where this guy was stabbed.
Danny: Somewhere between Wall Street and right here.
Danny: Delivery manifest. Last drop 200 Wall Street, next stop 33 and 8th.
Stella: He's gonna be a little late.
(Stella comes in, sees Danny browsing a women's magazine)
Stella: If you wanted beauty tips, all you had to do was ask.
Danny: Did you know that waterproof mascara dries out your lashes? That's amazing.
Danny: Usually when you stab somebody, you know the guy's name. It's just common courtesy.
Hawkes: At first I thought this might have been a post-mortem dog bite.
Mac: Those are no canine's canines.
(The Magazine Vendor, Mark Stutz, just explained he stabbed the messenger because he was sick and tired of bikers acting like they own the area)
Stella: (disgusted) Pedestrian rage. Why do I even ask?
(At that moment, a bike messenger speeds by giving little warning, almost running over Stella)
Stella: Son of a bitch!
Mark Stutz: Makes you want to murder 'em, don't it?
Stella:(Not commenting on it) Get in the car.
(Mr. Howell claims he was at the Charlton when the vic died, that's why he lied and said he didn't hear her.)
Flack: You don't want me to check this out and find out that you're lying, now.
Ross Howell: Oh, do whatever you want. I became a vet because I wanted to
alleviate some suffering, and I end up dealing drugs to manic-depressive
Brett Stokes: Hmm. Pretty smart sending a woman - figured I'd warm up to you? We'd have a little Oprah Winfrey heart-to-heart, I'd tell you who killed Mikey?
Stella: Don't expect me to buy you a car, but since you're in the chatty mood, let's start with that.
(Stella points to the guaze on Brett's leg)
(Mac has been checking dogs' paws for blood. When he shoos one woman away when hers has none, she gets angry.)
Woman: Do you realize my dog feels this as a rejection? It's appalling. Have you no shame, sir?
(Mac just got the dog owners in a line, and one complains as he walks up to him)
Alvin Marbert: Can't you see the effect this is having? Look at my dog. He's almost in tears.
(The dog looks idly around, Mac gives both a look.)
Frank Meadows: Hey, look, I don't know nothing about no stabbing, all right? I gotta hire a new guy now, and-and you're looking to take down one more?
Danny: I'm looking for the truth. You don't seem so eager to deliver.
Frank Meadows: Funny. Good pun.
Danny: Thanks for nothing, eh?
(Danny and Stella are investigating the death of a bike messenger)
Stella: Alright, Danny. How does the DNA from the fingernail scrappings on the knife not match Brett Stokes? I mean, she's got 'motive' tattooed on her forehead.
Danny: Hey, don't kill the messenger.
Danny: See what I just did there?
Stella: Yeah, it was cute.
Stella: Some days you're the dog, some days you're the hydrant.

Champion boxer Mike Tyson is notorious for his violent behavior and resulting legal problems. Among other offenses, he has served prison time for rape and he bit off Evander Holyfield's ear during a match.
Brett Stokes: We'd have a little Oprah Winfrey heart-to-heart...
Stella: Don't expect me to buy you a car.
This is an obvious allusion the The Oprah Winfrey Show and how she once gave everyone in the audience cars, (even though the writers in the commentary failed to remember where "don't expect me to buy you a car" came from).
