      • Nash: Am I dreaming?
        Joe: Well, if you are, I am, too.
        Nash: Harvey, what's goin' on?
        Harvey: Banks didn't call you?
        Nash: No.
        Harvey: Ah, of course he didn't.
        Joe: Alright in English, Harvey.
        Harvey: He withdrew his recommendation to shut us down so the police commission cancelled their administrative reorganization, meaning, boys, the SIU has been uncancelled.
        Nash (laughs): Well, alright!
        Jake (walks up): Hey, Bridges. I guess you got your boat back. And you can thank me whenever it's convenient.
        Nash: Oh, well, thank you. It happens to be convenient.
        Joe: Oh, right. Like you had anything to do with it.
        Jake: I've had about enough of you, Dominguez.
        Nash: Hey, hey, hey. Now why would I wanna walk away from this? So much love, so much tenderness.
        Jake: Hey, by the way, where's Cross?
        Nash: Uh, well, she didn't unchange her plans. She's gone to Boston.
        Jake: Well, that's too bad for her. I guess that means I gotta keep movin'.
        Nash: I know how you feel, Jake.
        Jake: Well, I'd like to sit around and shoot the bull all day long but there's a hell of a weather front comin' in and it's fixin' to be rainin' cats and dogs. (walks away)
        Joe: What's he talkin' about? It's beautiful out.
        Nash: Well, I know one thing. He's right about this. We've gotta have faith, you gotta go where the wind blows 'ya.

      • Harvey: I came by because I didn't want you to get hit with this out of the blue. I hired a lawyer, tomorrow you're gonna get a subpoena for a hearing regarding DNA testing, okay?
        Anna: Fine.
        Harvey: Okay.
        Anna: If we have to, we'll take the test. ... But it's not necessary, Harvey. Harvey, he's your son. I haven't slept with anyone else. Not since we split up.

      • Nash (after Jake comes out from behind the van and hits Jimmy): Jake, you idiot.
        Jake: Who's the idiot now? (one of Jimmy's men pull a gun on Jake)
        Nash: Still you, Jake.
        Jimmy: Try anything, you're over. Back off or you got a dead cop.
        Nash: Let me think about that for a minute.

      • Nash (as Jake is making coffee): Jake Cage, ladies and gentlemen, he cooks, he dances.

      • Evan: So why'd the pick up Zaccari yesterday?
        Joe: It seems like a risk that they didn't need to take.
        Jake: I'll tell 'ya why, 'cause Antwerp airport was closed yesterday due to ground fog all over the middle of the region.
        Joe: Do you tape the weather channel?
        Jake: Just the highlights. And the reason that we didn't find Zaccari is because they're holding him until she shows up with the ice.
        Nash: That's very sagacious and astute of you, Jake.
        Jake: Well, hey, it was your edification, man.
        Nash (laughs): Whatever.

      • Jake: And by the way, you know she's moving to Boston because of you? And I'll tell 'ya somethin', if makes me sick to my stomach.
        Nash: She's moving to Boston because she has a new job.

      • Caitlin: How come you're so late?
        Nash: I was working.
        Caitlin: Come on, Nash. At least try and come up with a better excuse.
        Nash: I hate good-byes.
        Caitlin: Well, then, why'd you bother coming at all?
        Nash: You're worth it. (kisses her, then turns to walk out)

      • Cassidy: Grandpa, when you got married how did you know that Grandma was the one that you wanted to be with for the rest of your life?
        Nick: Because every other woman that I ever met I always compared to Virginia. They were in one category, she was in another. No one else ever came close.
        Cassidy: So you never had any doubts?
        Nick: Doubts? Are you kidding? I was so nervous the first time I asked her to marry me she sent me off, told me to come back and ask again when I really meant it.
        Cassidy: I never heard that. What'd you do?
        Nick: I got up my nerve and I came back in a couple days and I asked her again. This time with more conviction.
        Cassidy: So it took you awhile to figure out that she was the one?
        Nick: No. We were young. I was afraid of the responsibility of getting married. I never doubted that she was the right one.

      • Jake: Man, I got things that I've gotta do.
        Nash: Whoa, whoa, whoa. That sounded very much like 'I've got some leads that I haven't told you about.'
        Jake: Hey, if something comes up, you will be the first to know.
        Nash: I better be. Before you go, put him into lock-up. And I'm charging you for these chairs.
        Jake: Aw, man.

      • Nash: You know what, next time I'm comin' alone.
        Jake: You say that but I know you don't mean it.

      • Nash: Where's the girl?
        Wong: What girl? (Jake slaps him on the back on the head)
        Jake: Hey, next sound out of your mouth better be useful information.
        Nash: I'd listen to him if I were you. He got up on the wrong side of life.

      • Jake (about Caitlin): Hey, just so you know, man. I don't mind sharing her with you for now, but you got to understand that in the long run you ain't got a chance.
        Nash (laughs): Whatever you say, Jake. You know, it's a free country.
        Jake: Hey, don't under estimate me, man. I'm pretty tenacious.
        Nash: Oh, is that what you call it?
        Jake: Well, what do you call it?
        Nash: Uh, supercilious, uncouth, contumelious.
        Jake: Ooh, that hurts. Oh, by the way, what does uncouth mean?
        Nash: Lack of polish, sense of grace, and you certainly don't have either one of those. (Jake laughs)

      • Caitlin (trying to take down a wall sconce): Actually, this is about the only thing that I have left of my grandmother's. It was her wedding gift to my mom. (drops the screwdriver) Ow.
        Nash: Uh, why don't you come down from there? I'm actually pretty good at this. I got it. (takes the screwdriver from her) So, uh, how long were your parents married?
        Caitlin: Oh, um, well, 22 years. But, um, they knew each other a long time before that. They started dating when they were 15.
        Nash: Wow.
        Caitlin: Yeah, so, in another words, don't break it, alright?
        Nash: You got it, sister. ... Uh, it's about this moving thing.
        Caitlin: You don't want me to go.
        Nash: No. I mean, I don't have a problem with you moving. Um, I just don't want you to... runaway. (Caitlin's doorbell rings)
        Caitlin: Yeah. Hold that thought. I really wanna hear this.

      • Harvey (about Jake wearing a sleeveless shirt): Anybody tell you that we're in San Francisco? It gets cold out there, brother.
        Jake: You know, any jack ass can look at a millibar chart and see that the fog is gonna lift by 11. And hell, son, by noon it'll be 75.
        Harvey (to Nash & Joe): How's he know that?
        Jake: I watch the weather channel a lot. It relaxes me.

      • Jake: Hey, Bridges!
        Nash (to himself): Oh, boy.
        Jake: Hey, where the hell's my suspect?
        Joe: Wait a minute, he's not your suspect anymore, Cage. He's ours.
        Jake: Oh, well, until I take him back.
        Nash: Oh, no, no, no, no. That's not the way it works. See, possession is 9/10ths of the law, even in law enforcement, if you can believe it.
        Jake: And you think that I give a damn about that?
        Nash (laughs): No.
        Joe: Hey, look, you had your chance, Jake. We came and offered to work with you and you blew us off.
        Jake: Oh, out of my way, Dominguez. (Joe steps in his way) I'm not gonna let a couple of mendacious miscreants like yourself back me off my own gig.
        Nash: Mendacious miscreants?
        Jake: What's the matter, Bridges? You can't handle my word power?
        Nash: Oh, I got your word power. What we should do is, pool our resources.
        Jake: Man, you ain't got no resources. I think I'm gonna stay on my own.
        Nash: Well, Jake, I don't have much but whatever I have is yours including the suspect who we both know is the next step in this gig.

      • Joe: So you're gonna let her walk away, just like that?
        Nash: Joe, I made a rule for myself a long time ago. Never chase women who don't wanna be caught.
        Joe: You think I don't know that? You think Caitlin doesn't?
        Nash: What's your point?
        Joe: My point is, she never met a rule she didn't like and you never met a rule that couldn't be broken. So, why don't you hold up your end of the bargain?

      • Nash: Well, well, well, Ms. Cross. You're a better detective than I gave you credit for. How'd you find us?
        Caitlin: Well, it wasn't all that hard once you endeared yourself to Reuben Banks yesterday.
        Nash: How was Boston?
        Caitlin: It was good. The job is perfect. I heard you got yourself allowed a week reprieve.
        Nash: That would be correct.
        Caitlin: Yeah, so, what happens after that?
        Nash: Well, let me put it this way: If this place turns back into a rave club, it didn't work out. What are you doing here?
        Caitlin: I, uh, I just came to get the rest of my stuff.
        Nash: What stuff?
        Caitlin: Stuff. I've got stuff. (Nash laughs)

      • Banks: Look, my daughter's future depends on Brasher being back in custody and convicted. That's the only way she gets her immunity deal.
        Nash: Well, then you better make us your best friends because I promised the mayor that we'd get Jimmy Brasher back in jail.
        Banks: Fugitive recovery is handling this case. You stay away.
        Nash: You know Reuben, I think you're mistaken me for somebody who gives a damn about your opinion. Excuse me. (pulls away in the 'cuda)
        Joe: Oh, I get it. So if we solve this case, put the bad guys back in jail, it's gonna be very hard for the police commission to shut us down, right?
        Nash: No rust on you, baby.

      • Joe: So what's goin' on, man?
        Nash: About what?
        Joe: About you being in a daze all week, man. Look, if you don't want Caitlin to go back to Boston and accept that DEA job, why don't you just tell her?
        Nash: Well, to tell you the truth, Joe, I did tell her. I told her that I loved her.
        Joe: What, you waiting for my big reaction? Okay, I'm amazed that you finally admitted it. How's that?
        So what happened?
        Nash (laughs lightly): She got a plane and flew to Boston to discuss the details of the job. She got back yesterday. I haven't talked to her yet.

      • (Nash turns around, surprised)
        Caitlin: Hey. (pause) My flight was cancelled. I forgot to tell you something. I love you too. I love you so much. (they kiss. She moves towards bedroom. She starts to remove her clothes. Nash smiles, as he removes his jacket)
