    Ye that's good too. It's like he magically transformed into his uniform. Which is kinda amazing considering I don't think he took it on the ship with him and it usually takes much longer to get into one of those uniforms. Lol. Super-Mountie - a.k.a. Benton Fraser.

    Vecchio: Who carries an unloaded gun? Would I carry an unloaded gun? Would anyone I know carry an unloaded gun? What do they shoot people with in Canada, serviettes? Does the word "bullets" mean anything to you?

    Vecchio's Mom, about Fraser: He's very nice...so polite.
    Vecchio: He's Canadian, Ma.
    Vecchio's Mom: Oh, I thought he was sick or something

    Vecchio: Okay. Okay. It was the mud, right? You knew it came off his shoe because when you sniffed it, it smelled like: Mud! I mean, what else does mud smell like?
    Fraser: Perhaps it was something off the floor of the bar.
    Vecchio: Wood? No no no. Beer and maybe a peanut shells and when you tasted it -- which by the way I can't believe you put that in your mouth -- you tasted the salt from the peanut shells and knew that he had been here, right?
    Fraser: Wrong. I guessed. I had a hunch.
    Vecchio: No no no no. You don't have hunches. I have hunches.
    Fraser: I had one of your hunches Ray. Felt good.
    Vecchio: And what was it with the mud? You put mud in your mouth.
    Fraser: Ray, she was looking out the window and I simply made her believe I found something.
    Vecchio: You made her believe you were a mud eater! I can't believe I'm sitting in the same car with you

    Oh my list goes on why dont you look at the website there isnt one on it that doesnt make me laugh...here have a read. Although it is quite disturbng cause i know em all off by heart.

    RAY: You oughta suck on something.
    ZALEB: You ought move your foot.
    RAY: Maybe I don’t want to move my foot.
    ZALEB: But if you don’t move your foot, I can’t get that horse patty.
    RAY: Why would you want that horse patty?
    ZALEB: I'm not telling.
    RAY: Tell me why you want that horse patty and maybe I’ll move my foot.
    ZALEB: Never.
    RAY: I’m a cop.
    ZALEB: So what?
    RAY: You want to serve time over a piece of manure?
    ZALEB: I’d rather go to the chair than talk.
    RAY: You know what I just decided?
    (Zaleb shakes his head) I just decided that you’re so nuts, I’m gonna let you have your patty.

    FRASER: Oh, would you mind dropping in to my place and checking up on Dief. He’s been in the apartment all day.
    RAY: Oh, great. I can’t wait to see what I’ll find.

    RAY: Old Zaleb came through for us. He remembers detecting some very subtle changes in the horse manure at a particular plant. Want to hear which one? Does the word “Barnaby Jones” mean anything to you?
    FRASER:  No matter what you say, you can not base an investigation on a theory developed from the casting of a television series.
    RAY: You’re just mad that I was right.
    FRASER: I’m not mad, it just doesn’t make any sense.
    RAY: And putting horse meat on your nose does?
    FRASER: That was different.
    RAY: You’re telling me.

    "The Man Who Knew Too Little":

    Ray: ...Damn! I should have brought the snow chains. Do we really got to cross the border?

    Fraser: Yes, Ray. Although I imagine they'll have a dogsled at the bridge, in case we should get stuck. [chuckles, then laughs outright]

    Ray: See? That's some kind of facetious Canadian humor.

    ***

    Ian McDonald: Those guys are part of the Canadian mob.

    Vecchio: There's no such thing.

    Fraser: On the contrary, Ray, organized crime is a growing problem in Canada.

    Vecchio: Oh yeah. What are we talking about here? Conspiracy to commit jaywalking? Organized littering?

    ***

    [station wagon after the two hitched a ride from Canadians after Ian took off with the Riv]

    Brenda: Oh goodness would you look at that. More stranded motorists with guns.

    [the bad guys are standing in the middle of the road, pointing their guns at the wagon]

    Ray: Floor it, buddy, floor it! Brenda: America's just getting more violent all the time. Brendan: It's television, eh? That's why I like our fine Canadian programming.

    ******

    From "Bird in the Hand":

    [donut shop, FBI agent talks with the two about Gerrard]

    McFadden: Understand my concern. This guy is doing time for murdering your father. If he disappears again, or steps in front of a truck or comes to harm in any way while he’s in your care, I can guarantee that I’ll have you indicted for murder and use the full weight of my agency to insure a conviction.

    Ray: Here, try the one with sprinkles. You take your job way too seriously.

    ***

    [Fraser tosses his boot knife with great force at Gerrard; it sticks into the wood next to Gerrard’s head; Fraser rises and retrieves his knife]

    Fraser: I’m just...not really in the mood to talk.

    Gerard: [laughs] Have a good sleep.

    Robert Fraser: Psst. Look what I made for you, son. [dangles a noose above Gerrard’s head]

    ***

    [Gerrard’s way is blocked, so he smashes through a window...he tries for the roof, but it’s slick – he slides off and hangs from the window one-handed (the other arm was shot)... Robert Fraser appears in the window]

    Robert Fraser: Take my hand. Gerrard: Ah! You’re dead. Robert Fraser: No time to be choosy.

    [Gerrard tries to take it...and his hand passes right through and he falls]

    Robert Fraser : Oh. My mistake.

    due south has some of the most eccentric and funniest but yet sometimes quite subtle (sometimes even quite political) humour i've ever seen in a show.

    some of my favourite quotes are:

    from "an invitation to romance":

    Inspector Moffat: Image, Constable, that's what we're talking
    about here. The basis of all diplomatic relations is not who you are
    but who the other side thinks you are. Now, I've worked very hard
    creating an image of Canadians we can all be proud of.

    Benton Fraser: Yes, Sir.

    Inspector Moffat: You on the other hand have been doing everything in your power to wreak havoc on that image.

    Benton Fraser: Sir?

    Inspector Moffat: All this do-gooding, Constable! Picking up
    litter, rescuing kittens, saving people's lives ... what sort of
    message do you suppose that sends to the Americans?

    Benton Fraser: That we care, Sir?

    Inspector Moffat: Exactly! And people don't fear people who care!

    Benton Fraser: I'm sorry, Sir. I wasn't aware that we want Americans to fear us.


    Inspector Moffat
    : (after ranting at a tailor) There, did you see that, Fraser? That's another American tailor that fears me.

    Benton Fraser: I could see that, Sir.

    Inspector Moffat: And that's what Canada needs.

    Benton Fraser: To be feared by tailors?


    (After this conversation Fraser offers an old woman to help her cross the street.)


    Benton Fraser: Can I give you a hand across the road, Ma'am?

    Old Woman: Aren't you the kind young man! Where are you from?

    Benton Fraser: Well, Ma'am, I'm from ... (hesitates), I'd rather not say ...


    from "the promise":

    Benton Fraser: Etiquette is a loose codification on the rules of
    conduct and polite society and I believe that preludes accusing an
    United States senator of murder, conspiracy and moral deviance.

    Ray Vecchio: Fraser, this is America, we do that all the time.


    from "the vault":

    (Fraser and Vecchio inside the vault.)

    Benton Fraser: We are in luck, Ray. It is completely sealed off.

    Ray Vecchio: What?

    Benton Fraser: Airtight, obviously for security. Rest easy Ray, the money is perfectly safe.

    Ray Vecchio: Oh, that's a relief because for a moment there I
    was concerned that all this little Thomas Jeffersons were going to run
    out of oxygen.


    and from "mountie on the bounty" (i don't agree on due south seasons 3 + 4 being a different show that's why i put it here anyway):

    Benton Fraser: Tell me where my partner is or I will kick you in the heads.

    Prisoner: Really?

    Benton Fraser: Hmm, no, not really.


    (Fraser and Kowalski are looking out of a porthole that is under water already while the ship is sinking.)


    Benton Fraser: Oh, look at that!

    Ray Kowalski: It's a fish!

    Benton Fraser: Yeah! But it's an encouraging sign.

    Ray Kowalski: It's not a sign, it's a fish!

    Benton Fraser: But it's a trout to be exact, which is a sign that the water quality of the Great Lakes is actually returning.

    Ray Kowalski: Look, why are you arguing with me, Fraser? It's not a sign, it's a fish. That means, the boat is sinking and we're dying!

    Benton Fraser: Oh yes, it's a sign of that also.


    Ray Kowalski
    : I don't like this! They got a big metal ship, we've got this little wooden boat!

    Sergeant Sam: We have the advantage of surprise!

    Ray Kowalski: But they can see us coming!

    Benton Fraser: Oh Ray, imagine yourself at sea. Suddenly you
    find yourself set upon by members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
    and the Chicago police department in a vessel that is a replica of the
    HMS Bounty. Wouldn't you be surprised?

    Ray Kowalski: Depends.

    Benton Fraser: Depends on what?

    Ray Kowalski: If I could see you coming.

    Yeah, I don't get that either. I thought someone had messed up, and tried submitting the season 3 eps, and got PM'd that it was 'spin-off'?! Only on this site, I fear. Replacing one cast member doesn't make a show a different show. Plus, look at the DVD releases. I think someone got mixed up.

    Also, love that quote!

    i've completely forgotten this one from "victoria's secret":

    Benton Fraser: You should take the deal.

    Ray Vecchio: I wasn't offered one.

    Benton Fraser: You should take it anyway.

    Ray Vecchio: Hey Benny, not in your lifetime!

    one of my favourites is from       'Some like it red'   when they are coming out of the antiques store and getting in the car.

    Fraser--Ray.Manners!

    Ray--There's a limit you know.

    Fraser--A limit? To good etiquette? I think not Ray.

    Ray-- Just get in the car before I beat you with your purse!

    Benton: She shot my hat Ray.

    Ray: She shot you in the hat?

    Benton: I can feel air coming in through the hole.

    Ray: She shot you in the hat alright.

    Benton: How does it look?

    Ray: It doesn't look good Benny.

    Benton: We'll have to go home and get my other one.

    Ray: We can do that.
