  • Quotes

    • (After Nick accidentally gave Lisa, Whitney's gift)
      Lisa: I'll always have feelings for you, Nash. Including romantic feelings, I know that's not going to change. I often wonder, what if? But-- But Christmas is a deceptive time it stirs up all these nostalgic memories.
      Nash: Mm. Yeah. Uh...
      Lisa: I feel that Christmas alters our perceptions. So why don't we put these feelings on hold until after the holidays? And then we'll see how we feel.
      Nash: That's good. After the holidays.
      Lisa: You never fail to surprise me, Nash. That's one of the things I love about you.
      Nash: After Christmas.

    • Joe (about lingerie): You think Inger would like something like that for Christmas?
      Nash: I think you might like something like that on Inger for Christmas.

    • Nash: Last week it was chili in the backseat, and tonight I got some sort of sticky chocolate right here on the console. Simple rule, really. No food in the 'cuda. Now what can't you understand about that?
      Joe: It's a candy bar, man. It's not food.
      Nash: That would be food.
      Joe: There's no nutritional value in a candy bar whatsoever.
      Nash: No a candy bar would be food.

    • (After Nash and Joe kill a gunman that shot at them at a department store)
      Joe: Man, I heard department stores were murder this time of the year but this isn't what I had in mind.
      Nash: Yeah it's look a lot like Christmas around here, bubba. Only without the "good will towards men" part.

      Nash (sighs): You bad guys make me tired. Take the full hit, do the full term. What do I care?

      Joe: You want a ride? I'll give you a ride. I got my car outside.
      Nash: What's goin' on, Joe?
      Joe: Alright, you want the truth?
      Nash: That'd be nice.
      Joe (sighs): I borrowed your car because I was getting it detailed. You know, I wanted it to be a suprise.
      Nash (laughs): Well, that's very sweet.
      Joe: It's suppoed to be done by noon.
      Nash: Well, it's after 12. C'mon lets go.
      Joe: Well, it's uh...not done yet.
      Nash: Why?
      Joe: Um... Alright, you want the whole truth?
      Nash: I don't know.
      Joe: Um... I was gonna get n-n-new tires for it.
      Nash: Tires?
      Joe: Yeah. Four new tires.
      Nash: Why are you doing this?

    • Officer: Inspector Bridges, good news. We found the bank robbers.
      Nash: What bank robbers?
      Officer: The ones that made off with your car.
      Nash: The 'cuda?
      Officer: Yeah. We tracked them down to a warehouse in the Mission. They promised to lead us to your car. Unfortanly shots were fired, so we really don't know what condition your car's in, but my fingers are crossed.
      Nash: Yeah. Well, keep 'em crossed. Shots fired, huh? My car.

    • Officer: Hey, Bridges. Your car just arrived outside and from (hands him the keys) what I hear it's no worse for the wear.
      Nash: That's great news. Does uh, Joe know that the 'cuda's been recovered?

      Joe: Hey, man, think nothing of it. I mean you're my best friend. You know. I'm just thankful you let me hang around so long.
      Nash (laughs): Get outta here. Listen I'm gonna ask you a question it may sound a little funny. You know, uh...I'm kind of a nut. I'm a little practicular about what goes on that car.
      Joe: Yeah. On it, in it, and eating any where around it. I know.
      Nash: Well, good. I'm sure you've done research and you know the only tires I'd put on that car are F-60-15 polyglass GTs.
      Joe: Oh. Yeah. Sure. F-60-15 polyglass GTs. What else would I put on there?
      Nash: Well, you know, I just know that they're kinda hard to find.
      Joe: Oh. Yeah, um... well, what do you thinks been taking me so long? (they both laugh)

      Joe: Absolutley correct.
      Nash: Where'd you get these tires?
      Big Barry: Listen, this is all perfectally legit. It's a long story but it's a holy night. Lets just save it for another time.
      Nash: Mmhmm. And what's in it for you?
      Big Barry: The return of my property. Several of months ago at a police raid, due to circumstances my saxophone was confiscated. Now, I've been cleared of all wrong doing, but my saxophone remains a prisoner in the Mission district property room. Now, I wanna cut the red tape and get it back.

      Nash: Yes it counts. It counts against you.
      Joe: What are you gonna get Lisa?
      Nash: A pair of heirloom pearl earrings. They were my moms. I found them when I was going through Nick's stuff. She's always loved them and I figured someday she can pass them on to Cassidy.
