  • An instant classic

    When Richie takes credit for what both he and Judy did, Rachel gives him two different examples of taking credit. The first is a writing contest that Eddie has been entered in by his mother, and Steve does the writing for him, while Eddie takes the credit. The other is when Carl and his boss, Lieutenant Murtagh, are staking out a building. Carl does all the work of catching the criminals in the act, but shares the credit with Murtagh. I really loved watching this episode, and I know you will too. You may be able to learn how you can take credit as well.moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Lt. Murtaugh: You know what you need?
      Carl: A career change?
      Lt. Murtaugh: No! Some Italian food. There's a place down the street. Great eggplant parmesan.
      Carl: Sir, eggplant is great, but um, according to regulations, a steakout team should never separate.
      Lt. Murtaugh: Don't quote regulations to me. I helped write the damn regulations.
      Carl: Yes, sir.
      Lt. Murtaugh: It's up to me if I want to violate myself. (walks out of the room where the steakout is taking place)
      Carl: No wonder the criminals are always winning.

    • Richie: (trying some of his horseradish cake) Yuck, nobody should take credit for this; that cake could kill you.

    • Steve: (to Eddie) Either you take me camping, or you can tell everyone who really won the short story contest.

    • Lt. Murtagh: I met your wife, Henna.
      Carl: Harriette, sir.
      Lt. Murtagh: Your son, Edwin.
      Carl: Edward, sir.
      Lt. Murtagh: Your daughter, Leslie.
      Carl: Laura, sir.
      Lt. Murtagh: And your sister-in-law, Rachel.
      Carl: Rachel, sir.
      Lt. Murtagh: I said "Rachel!"

    • Eddie: I'm sorry, Steve. We'll go camping together some other time. Just you and me. I promise, okay? Steve: Okay. Eddie: Alright! (goes to leave) Steve: … No, it's not okay! Eddie Winslow, front and center! Newsflash, Eddie! I have feelings! Inside this scrawny chest, there beats a heart. A heart that hurts. And the reason it hurts is because I've tried very hard to be your friend, and all you've done is take advantage of me. Well, that's gonna stop right now! I'm not your personal doorman. (pointing to Laura) I'm her doorman!

    • Steve: Oh, Laura, my love. The wind has chapped my lips. Would you care to heal them with a kiss?

    • Laura: You think we lost him?
      Eddie: Yep. With all the twist and turns we took, there is no way Steve could have followed us home.
      Steve: (popping up) Hi, guys!
      Laura: Steve, how did you beat us?
      Steve: I just came straight here. For some unknown reason, you guys were running all over town.
