      • Old Woman: What about you, dear? Are you married?
        Benton Fraser: No, ma'am, I'm not. But I am acquainted with loss, and on occasion loneliness.

      • Ray Kowalski: You pretend you're a woman, okay? You find me attractive?
        Benton Fraser: Very much so, yes.

      • Benton Fraser: You know I don't mean to be critical, but you might want to consider some remedial practice on the target range. Your aim is appalling.
        Ray Kowalski: Hey, I'm a good shot.
        Benton Fraser: By what criteria? You fired seven rounds, you haven't been within fifty meters of your target.
        Ray Kowalski: I'm a good shot, I just need my glasses. I also left them in the tomb.
        Benton Fraser: No, you didn't. I have them right here.
        Ray Kowalski: Why didn't you tell me you had them?
        Benton Fraser: Well, I didn't realize you were blind.
        Ray Kowalski: I'm not blind, I just don't see all that good.

      • Benton Fraser: Hi, Ray. So we're on a stakeout. That's good. Who's the target?
        Ray Kowalski: None of your business.
        Benton Fraser: Ah. Secrecy. That's very wise. You know, it reminds me of a time I spent near Skull Rapids. I was holed up in the carcass of a caribou for almost seventy-two hours, and you know, to this day I have no idea who we were actually waiting for. But I can tell you that after seventy-two hours, the smell of a caribou carcass... is almost hallucinogenic.

      • Elaine Besbriss: (talking about the birthday party) And we use the fish for...?
        Benton Fraser: For the games. Bobbing for trout. You see, I - I've organized a traditional Yukon celebration in his honor.
        Elaine Besbriss: Couldn't we just bob for apples?
        Benton Fraser: They're not very plentiful in the Yukon.
        Harding Welsh: It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
        Elaine Besbriss: Is that a traditional Inuit game?
        Benton Fraser: No, the locals favor something called "Twister".

      • Benton Fraser: In December 1988 a young boy was being held in a warehouse. You went in even though you knew your cover had been blown. You drew fire, you were wounded, yet you managed to rescue the boy - your first citation. In December 1990, in a jewelry store, you singlehandedly held off three gunmen, saving four innocent lives - your second citation. In September 1993 you faced down three escaped murderers and you brought them to justice - your third citation. You're a good policeman, Ray. And I would be proud to call you my partner... and my friend.
        Ray Kowalski: What was that last part?
        Benton Fraser: Friend.

      • Ray Kowalski: I'm like one of those knights looking for the holy grill.
        Benton Fraser: Grail.
        Ray Kowalski: What?
        Benton Fraser: Holy Grail.
        Ray Kowalski: You're sure?
        Benton Fraser: I'm pretty sure it's not a diner.

      • Old Woman: (on her deceased husband) He was acorophobic.
        Ray Kowalski: Ah, he was afraid of acrobats?
        Benton Fraser: No, no, insects.

      • Landlady: So what's your story? You work in a circus?
        Benton Fraser: No, Ma'am, Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

      • Harding Welsh: If Vecchio doesn't show, this district will have its collected ass in a slink.
        Benton Fraser: So you need Ray Vecchio?
        Harding Welsh: By end of shift. Five o'clock.
        Benton Fraser: Which one, sir?
        Harding Welsh: Which one what?
        Benton Fraser: Which Ray Vecchio? The detective formerly known as Ray Vecchio, or the current detective known as the former Ray Vecchio?

      • Ray Kowalski: You and I both know I'm not Ray Vecchio.
        Benton Fraser: You're not?
        Ray Kowalski: No.
        Benton Fraser: You're sure about that?
        Ray Kowalski: I don't even look like him.
        Benton Fraser: Well, you could have had plastic surgery.
        Ray Kowalski: You are unhinged.

      • Ray Kowalski: You know, Fraser, when they offered me this assignment, they made it sound kind of normal. They say, "Hey, Ray, here's a chance to start over, ditch the past." "What's the catch?" I say. "Oh, your partner's Canadian." Canadian? I got nothing against Canadians, except for the time when they won the World Series.
        Benton Fraser: Two times.
        Ray Kowalski: Which I'm willing to overlook.
        Benton Fraser: Thank you.
        Ray Kowalski: But at no time did they say: "Oh, by the way, you'll be working with a Mountie who's got a wolf that's a florist."

      • Ray Kowalski: (while under fire) You don't have a gun?
        Benton Fraser: Well, obviously you weren't fully briefed. I'm not licensed to carry a firearm.
        Ray Kowalski: And you didn't bother telling me before?
        Benton Fraser: Well, it didn't seem germane at the time.
        Ray Kowalski: What the hell kinda word is that?

      • Benton Fraser: You know, Ray, my father once told me that the sky isn't just above you, that if you look at the horizon you'll see that it actually touches the ground. So if you think about it, wherever you go, you are actually walking in the sky.
        Ray Kowalski: You're a freak.
        Benton Fraser: Understood.
