      • Frank: What is that stuff?
        Howard: Oh, that's my tobacco. It's imported from Indonesia.
        Frank: Great aroma.
        Howard: You might start thinking about Indonesia, Frank. Some little dugout up in the bamboo. If I were you, I'd consider it.
        Frank: Why is that, Howard?
        Howard: Judas Priest, Frank! You've got the Commander-in-Chief on the front burner and you're standing around here with your pants around your support hose!

      • Belker: (answering his phone) Hill Street, Detective Belker... hi, Ma... I'm booking a pick-pocket... Ma, you're not having a heart attack, so why don't you just give it to me straight...chuckles "Standing in the window with binoculars?" Why is that such a bad thing? So what if he's a peeping tom, the man is 83 years old! All he's got left is his peep! … Ma…Ma…Ma! I am not arresting my own father, and that's that!

      • Howard: (speaking about the President, who's due for a visit to the precinct) I don't support the man's gutless politics, but he's still our Commander-in-Chief.

        Allusion: Howard is alluding to Jimmy Carter, the 39th president of the United States, and widely criticized for his impotent foreign policy. Interestingly, this episode aired just two days after Carter's successor, Ronald Reagan, was sworn in as the nation's 40th president.
