      • Benton Fraser: Well, Ray the bomb, let's keep it real. 411 and 'sup.
        Ray Kowalski: Fraser, what are you doing?
        Benton Fraser: I'm just getting down with my bad self. (nods to the gang members) Houseboys.
        Gang Member: (shakes head) Oh, man...
        Ray Kowalski: Homeboys, it's homeboys.
        Benton Fraser: Homeboys. Homeboys.
        Ray Kowalski: He's Canadian. He's a little funny.

      • Ray Kowalski: So, you look in the ring and you see this large goon trying to beat your partner - and your friend - to death with his bare hands, so what do you generally do?
        Benton Fraser: Well, you help.
        Ray Kowalski: Riiight.
        Benton Fraser: Oh. Oh, I see where you're headed with this. No, in this particular case, Ray, I knew this was just a continuation of your earlier match and that you had to go this alone as part of a mental and spiritual quest.
        Ray Kowalski: Next time?
        Benton Fraser: Yes?
        Ray Kowalski: Help.
        Benton Fraser: Understood.

      • Benton Fraser: (after their sparring) And you feel better?
        Ray Kowalski: Yeah, I feel better.
        Benton Fraser: Mentally and spiritually, I presume, because your physical condition is truly appalling.

      • Benton Fraser: (to Dief, after sparring with Ray, who is now on the ground) You know, there really was no cause for worry. But I must say I do appreciate your concern. It's been very rare these days.

      • Fraser: This is known as the Sam Browne. In particular, this is the lanyard. (meanwhile, Ray has conversation with Holmes) Let's say you're pursuing a criminal on horseback. Should you lose control of your weapon, you don't have to dismount. You see, you simply scoop it up and there, presto, you have it in your hand again. It's something you gentlemen might want to consider.

      • Ray Kowalski: (explaining street slang) See, "fly" is good. "That's the bomb" is great.
        Benton Fraser: Oh, I see. So I could say, for instance, Ray, my very good friend, you're a flying bomb.
        Ray Kowalski: Nah, that doesn't work. Uh, example: Homes better keep it real, cause we're just up for the 411. We don't want him to go the whole nine yards and pull his gat and bang-bang put a cap in us, you know, cause we'd be down on a 187.

      • Benton Fraser: (dressed in his red serge) Good day, gentlemen.
        Gang member: Yo, that's a bad ass outfit.
        Benton Fraser: (whispers to Ray) He insulted the uniform.
        Ray Kowalski: Uh, he meant good. Bad means good. He digs the uniform.
        Benton Fraser: Oh. You mean, it's the lingo thing. Sort of flip flop?
        Ray Kowalski: Yeah.
        Benton Fraser: Understood. (Turns to the man) Yes, sir, it is bad. It is red serge and it represents the queen.

      • Ray Kowalski: This is Constable Benton Fraser. He-first-came-to-Chicago-on-the-killers-of-his-father-he's-Canadian-you-don't-want-to-know. Bare knuckle fighter.
        Benton Fraser: Ah, no, Ray, I only wrestle bears.

      • Benton Fraser: I wasn't aware that you'd had a boxing career, Ray.
        Ray Kowalski: Ah, it wasn't exactly a career. It was more of a...
        Francesca Vecchio: A disaster?
        Benton Fraser: A hobby?
        Francesca Vecchio: A meltdown?
        Benton Fraser: Pastime?
        Francesca Vecchio: Nightmare?
        Ray Kowalski: Look, you're both very very funny. But, uh, I had to quit when I, uh, got married to Stella cause she didn't think it was, uh, what's the, uh...
        Francesca Vecchio: Civilized?
        Ray Kowalski: That's it.

      • Francesca Vecchio: (points to Dief) What's with him?
        Benton Fraser: Oh, he won't speak to me.
        Francesca Vecchio: How come?
        Benton Fraser: Well, the alarm clock went off at five and he refused to budge so I reprimanded him for being slothful.

      • Ray Kowalski: Devlin was a hell of a trainer.
        Benton Fraser: Well, maybe he can continue to be. You know, one mistake doesn't necessarily mean the end of a career, think about Richard Nixon (reconsiders) ... that's probably not a good example.

      • (Kowalski and Fraser sparring.)

        Ray Kowalski: Common, Fraser, let's get ready to ruuuuuuumble.
        Benton Fraser: Right you are.
        Ray Kowalski: What are you doing, Fraser?
        Benton Fraser: I'm sparring.
        Ray Kowalski: No, you're not. I'm sparring, you're standing there like a ... mountie.
        Benton Fraser: Well, I am a mountie.
        Ray Kowalski: I know that, Fraser, but you gotta try to hit me.
        Benton Fraser: Well, I'd really rather not.
        Ray Kowalski: Rather not? I don't care what you'd rather not do. Just do it!
        Benton Fraser: Why would I wanna hit a friend, Ray?
        Ray Kowalski: Because it's traditional in this sport. Common, just try to hit me! Common, hit me!
        Benton Fraser: No, Ray!
        Ray Kowalski: Hit me!
        Benton Fraser: No!
        Ray Kowalski: Hit me!
        Benton Fraser: No!
        Ray Kowalski: Hit me!
        Benton Fraser: No!
        Ray Kowalski: Hit me!
        Benton Fraser: No!
        Ray Kowalski: Hit me!

        (Fraser knocks Kowalski out with one single punch.)

      • (Fraser and Kowalski are discussing the dangers of boxing.)
        Benton Fraser: If they wore protecting helmets it would minimize the danger.
        Ray Kowalski: You are so, so, so (snorts) ... Canadian!
        Benton Fraser: It's just logic, Ray.
        Ray Kowalski: Logic! Exactly! Boxing has nothing to do with logic. It is sport taken to it's purest nut. It is muscles, sweat, guts, torque, loath, ... I mean, you ever meet a logical person who'd bite off an other man's ear?
        Benton Fraser: This is another argument for protective helmets ... with ear flaps.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • The title of this episode is most likely an allusion to the film, Body and Soul (1947), in which a young boxer gets entangled with a corrupt promoter.

      • When Kowalski suggests that no logical person would bite off an other man's ear he's making a tongue-in-cheek reference to the fight Tyson v. Holyfield in June 1997 in which Tyson bit off a part of Holyfield's right ear.
