NBC (ended 1999)
|That episode is Shaggy Dog, City Goat from the sixth season.|
Thanks. I thought that was it, but I didn't want to be wrong, and I was too lazy to check.
Yeah Crossetti's Lincoln obsession was good stuff too. And the time...I think it was him in the bathroom.
"You got toilet paper in there?"
"You got five ones for a five?"
That...that's another great moment. I miss the little salami brain.
I'm just finishing up Homicide on DVD now. I distinctly remember laughing my head off during this exchange in the episode "Valentine's Day":
Cox: I just love bombs. They always make the autopsy so easy.
Gene: Hey, I found an ear.
Bayliss: Friends, Romans, countrymen....
Mike: Ear today, gone tommorow.
Cox: You guys are so sick.
Not only is it clever and hilarious, it seemed like such a fitting conversation for that group of characters to have...
My favorite funny moment has to be the scene in 'All Through The House', in which the morgue is decorated very much in the holiday spirit, red ribbons, mistletoe over each examination table, 'Happy Hannukah' and 'Happy Kwanzaa' greetings on the walls, and Scheiner with a Santa's hat on, explaining to Meldrick that he chose a multiconfessional twist so that anyone could feel welcome there. :-D
Oh, yeah: another one: Munch's 'Ho-Ho-Ho-Homicide' uplifting telephone greeting in the same episode.
Watching this series on DVD now; I'm up to Season 7. I think my favorite season was the first and least favorite was the last, but overall it was a great series and I really enjoy a Homicide: Life on the Street marathon every now and then.
Loved all the funny scenes mentioned here; also loved a lot of the music they used, plus the *original* opening sequence and theme.
