      • Nash: Well, hello there.
        Cassidy: Don't 'hello' me, Dad.
        Nash: What? What'd I do?
        Cassidy: I want you to know that I'm seriously considering becoming an actress and you're just gonna have to accept that. And this whole avoidance thing? It's unacceptable.
        Nash: First of all, I was called away on business. Secondly, you can play any part you'd like. And thirdly, I thought the play was great. Especially you in it.
        Cassidy: You did?
        Nash: Yes, I did.
        Cassidy: And nothing about it bothered you?
        Nash: Well, it was a little esoteric but other than that, it was a joy.
        Cassidy: I thought that you'd hate it.
        Nash: Well, you're wrong. As a matter of fact, I liked it so much that I'm coming back tonight.
        Cassidy: Oh, no, no. You know what? That-- That's not even necessary.
        Nash: Well, it's set up. Joe is comin' too.
        Joe: Yeah, Inger and I will be there with bells on.
        Cassidy: Wh-- What? Inger's coming?
        Joe: Yeah. She bought a new dress and everything.
        Nash: Yep. We'll be there tonight. I'm even bringing your grandfather.
        Cassidy (mortified): Grandpa?
        Nash: Yep. See 'ya tonight. (walks away with Joe)
        Evan (walks up): What'd he say?
        Cassidy: He's bringing everybody that I know.
        Evan: Weird.

      • Harvey: Wait a minute, does the trigger device run through this CPU?
        Calvin: Yeah, yeah. The whole thing is computerized.
        Harvey: So if we give the computer a lobotomy, leave the bomb and the timer alone. Can the bomb still go off without a computer command telling it to?
        Calvin: No.
        Nash: Harv, if this works, I'm gonna kiss 'ya.

      • Nash (to Calvin): You son of a bitch. You listen to me. You're gonna stay here until that thing blows or I shoot you in the head, which ever comes first. So I suggest you make every effort to stop it. Now get in there.

      • (After Nash sees Cassidy's play)
        Cassidy (to Evan): See, I told you he'd freak out. He's so mad at me, he's acting nice.

      • (Joe is playing GameBoy)
        Nash: You sure there isn't an age limit on that thing?
        Joe: Uh, it said six and over on the box.
        Nash: No, I mean an outside age limit. Like if you're over 40 don't touch this thing.
        Joe: Hey, relax, man. I know what I'm doin'. I seen my nephew play Galaxy Man up to level 13, I figure if I play this I might get some insight on to how Reddick is thinking.
        Nash: Well, good. If you get some insight let me know or go brain dead, which ever comes first. In the meantime, could you push the mute button on that thing?
        Joe (checks the GameBoy): Uh... it doesn't have a mute.
        Nash: Oh, that's it. You can play it later. (pulls over)
        Joe: What are you gonna make me walk for playin' a game?
        Nash: No, you're drivin'.
        Joe: What?
        Nash: I've got to shut my eyes for a few minutes. (gets out of the car and walks around to the other side)
        Joe: You want me to drive the 'cuda?
        Nash: Come on, come on. Let's go. I've got to be at Cassidy's play in an hour and I'm exhausted. I gotta get some rest. Let's go. Hurry up. (Joe gets out and walks around to the driver's side)
        Joe: You never let me drive the 'cuda.
        Nash: Do we have to have some sort of special ceremony or somethin'?
        Joe: No, no, no. I'm good. Don't worry about it. Can I adjust the seat?
        Nash: Adjust the seat, make yourself comfortable and drive.

      • (On the phone)
        Evan: I'm sorry. Were you sleeping?
        Nash: At this point, I can't tell anymore.

      • (They are about to enter the bomb suspect's apartment)
        Evan: Alright, Harv. After you.
        Harvey: That's okay. I went first last time.
        Evan: No, no, I went-- Alright, Harv. If anything happens to me, this is the last time I'm goin' first.
        Harvey: I'm right behind 'ya.
        Evan: Yeah, yeah.

      • Cassidy: Well, I found out that you have a reservation for my play tonight.
        Nash: Well, yes, I do. I was gonna surprise you. Since you surprised me by not tellin' me about it.
        Cassidy: Well, you know, I know how busy you are and-- and it's this little Avant Garde production and the truth is... you don't even need to come.
        Nash: No, no, no. I'm coming. I'm coming. I know that I'm only batting about 150 on these things but I'll be there.
        Cassidy: You know, it's a tiny little part and it's at 1 A.M, in this dinky little theater and-- You know what? You can come to the next one.
        Nash: I'll come to the next one, too. But I'm comin' tonight.
        Cassidy: Daddy, listen to me. It's water torture, okay? There's bats and there's a monkey mask, and there's a vespa scooter and a windmill.
        Nash: Whoo-hoo! That sounds interesting.
        Cassidy: No. Daddy, my feelings won't be hurt if you don't come to this one.
        Nash: Nope, I'll be there, sweetheart. I'll see 'ya tonight.

      • Evan: Why does she have to be naked?
        Harvey: Ha! That's a new compliant.
        Evan: Harv, this is like her first time in front of a live audience.
        Harvey: I understand but if it's essential to the play then she should do it. I saw a production of Midsummer Night's Dream once, they did it completely in the buff. In that case, it wasn't essential but it was really quite charming.
        Evan: Harv, this is a serious concern for me.
        Harvey: Evan, the whole point of experimental theater is to keep the audience off their feet, you know, mess with the expectations. Your job as an audience member and as a significant other of one of the actors is to keep an open mind about it.
        Evan: How? How do I do that?
        Harvey: Shut your mouth and go to the play.
        Cassidy (walks up)

      • Joe: So you didn't get any sleep at all last night?
        Nash: Ah, I'm recounting 30 seconds.
        Joe: Guess you're gonna miss Cassidy's play then, huh?
        Nash: What play?
        Joe: I don't know. I overheard Evan tell Harvey that she has a play tonight or somethin'. I don't know.
        Nash: Well, she damn sure didn't tell me anything about it.
        Joe: Maybe she just assumed that you wouldn't be there.
        Nash: Wait a minute, no, no, no, no, no. My track record isn't that bad. ... Is it?

      • (Musicians woke him up after he just fell asleep and he calls them up to his apartment to talk about it)
        Nash: I'm your neighbor, Nash Bridges. Captain Nash Bridges, it's a police thing. I've been up for about a month working. So just tell me what the hell you're doing in my building?
        Cody: My dad's a city inspector he said as long as we sign this waiver we can practice here. (Nash grabs the waiver from him) We didn't even know anyone lived here until we met Nick. That's not a problem, is it?
        Nash: Not for me 'cause I'm revoking your waiver.
        Cody: Wait a minute you can't do that, can you?
        Nash: Yes, I can. See like I told 'ya, I gotta get some sleep. So I'm declaring this building a restricted zone. Structurally unsound for loud vibrations.
        Cody (to Nick): I thought you said he was cool, man.
        Nash: I am cool. I'm tired!
        Nick: Nash, can I talk to you? (they walk to the side) They're good boys, Nash.
        Nash: No, no, no, no, no, no, Nick. Don't do this to me. (Nick just looks at him) Alright. (walks back over to them) Alright. You can play. But we're gonna set some ground rules. (to Nick) You don't mind the music?
        Nick: No, no. I like it. You can go crazy around here without any other company.
        Nash: Fine, fine. Good. Good. You can play from-- from noon until 8:00. That's P.M, not A.M.
        Cody: We work better at night. (Nash glares at him) But I think the guys might go for it.
        Nash: I think they will, too. Good. We got a deal.
        Cody: Thank you, sir.
        Nash: No, no, no. He's sir. (motions to Nick) and I'm Nash and you can thank him. Good night, good morning, whatever.

      • Nick: What are you doing up so early, son?
        Nash: I'm not up early, I'm just gettin' in.
        Nick: You're not a teenager anymore, Nash. You need your sleep.
        Nash: You're preaching to the converted. And by the way, thanks for reminding me, Dad. What are you doin' up?
        Nick: It's 5:00. I'm always up at 5:00. I'm going down to Gary's for the newspaper. You need anything?
        Nash: No. I'm going to bed. Good night or good morning. Whatever.

      • Nash: Say the words, 'I will never, ever, again take an off duty domestic dispute. Ever again.' Say it.
        Joe: Alright, alright. I will never take an off-duty domestic dispute case again. Unless of course, you need the money.
        Nash: No, no. Not even then.

      • Evan: Look, Cassidy. You're the one that said this nudity thing wasn't a big deal.
        Cassidy: Hello! We're talking about my father here! I don't believe you.
