  • QUOTES (3)

    • Steve: Listen Al. Monday, when they check the duty roster, one word is gonna come down from above - Rhoades. And I will have one word for them - Bundy.
      Al: Listen Steve, I didn't take it.
      Steve: Al! We're talking 20 to 50 with chainsaw killers. And don't think I'm serving time alone, bunkie. If I'm gonna be playing in the showers with maniacs, you're gonna be passing the soap.

    • Al: Peg, listen to me for once in your life. I don't have the money!
      Peggy: Now don't think you'll hold it out on me, Al. Uh-uh. I've made your breakfasts, I've had your children, I've even gone to the bathroom after you. I've paid my dues, Al. I've earned that money just as if I'd taken it myself. Half of it's mine. Unless you go to prison, and then it's all mine. So where is it, snookie?

    • Steve: They'll think back, "Let's see... who was the last person in the bank on Saturday? Who had the opportunity? Why, it was Rhoades. No wonder he called in sick today. Well, let's turn down his car loan and give him twenty years to life". Of course, I'll turn you in, and as soon as we're both behind bars, I'm going to kill you. And if I can't do it myself, I'll make sure my boyfriend's bigger than yours.
