Schanke: Since we're partners I'll give you the short version.
Nick: Who says you're not merciful?

Nick: Anyone find anything?
Schanke: Some interesting material, but so far nothing to do with Betty Gilroy.
Nick: Keep looking.
Schanke: Why, someone you know having a bachelor party aboard a fully manned nuclear sub?
Schanke: Nice suit, Captain.
Stonetree: Thanks. My son made it.
Nick: It's about a 40-foot gorilla!
This is an allusion to the movie King Kong, whose "star" is a gigantic gorilla. There have been several movie versions of King Kong throughout the years.
Schanke: It's either that or I've got the Six Million Dollar Man for a partner.
The Six Million Dollar Man was a 1970s television series starring Lee Majors as a man who had parts of his body replaced with bionic implants, which caused him to do extraordinary things.
