    • QUOTES (9)

      • Nash: Hey, what happened to your child labor?
        Caitlin: Oh, their mom finally came home now I'm stuck doing my own clerical work.
        Nash: Well, at least you'll know where everything is.
        Caitlin: Yeah. You know, Darla says she wants to become a magician I think maybe you charmed her.
        Nash: Oh, really? You know, cheap tricks sometimes work the best as long as they come from the heart.

      • Randi (as the disco show starts): What the hell is happening?
        Nash: Ignore it. It'll go away.
        Joe: Hopefully.
        Randi (after it stops): What was that?
        Nash: Uh, we're not really sure ourselves, but you're still on the hook, sister.
        Randi: Alright. You'll help me with a deal?
        Nash: I guarantee you're gonna do better than Kirkland.
        Randi: Mind if I smoke?
        Nash: Why not, the barge does.

      • Nash: You bet Mr. Woody on a softball game?
        Nick: Yes.
        Nash: Well, what did Augie put up?
        Nick: Half interest in his bar.
        Nash: Let me get this straight. If you lose, he gets Mr. Woody. If you win, you get your lifelong rival, your arch enemy as a business partner? What the hell kind of a bet is that?
        Nick: I don't know. It sounded good at the time!

      • (Darla and Henry are sitting by Caitlin's desk, putting papers into envelopes)
        Caitlin: Uh, Nash, I have a question for you. The Larkin case back in '95--
        Nash: Yeah, well, I got a question for you, too. You don't have any children.
        Caitlin: No.
        Joe: What'd you lease these?
        Caitlin: It's a long story.
        Nash: Ha. Well, how about giving us the short version you know, the one where we're no co-conspirators in violating child labor laws, that one.
        Caitlin: They're my roommates kids, alright? She left them with me and I have no way of getting in touch with her so I brought them to the office. This is Darla, this is Henry. Say 'Hi.'
        Darla & Henry: Hi.
        Nash: Hi, Darla. Hi, Henry. How 'ya doin'?
        Darla & Henry: Good.
        Nash (to Caitlin): So, pagan, do they work for room and board, is that the idea?
        Caitlin: For your information when I was their age, my parents treated me like an adult and I turned out just fine.
        Nash (to Joe): That's scary.
        Caitlin: They're fine. Aren't you, kids? You're fine.
        Henry: Yes, Ms. Cross.
        Darla: She gave us donuts.
        Nash (to Joe): Donuts. Big spender, too. Scary. (Joe laughs)

      • Nash: You know his girlriend, Rosiattia?
        Nick: Little latin spitfire about yay high--
        Nash: Yeah, yeah, you got her.
        Nick: Yeah, she's come to the bar after a few games.
        Nash: Mmhmm. Well, she's hiding him, she won't even let us talk to him.
        Nick: You're telling me that you couldn't get past her?
        Nash: Nick, it's not a police case.
        Nick: Did you explain to her the importance of the game?
        Nash: Nick, I can't make the guy play. Plus, I'm a cop. We've got rules here, y'know. He's entitled to live his own life, not to mention Rosiattia. I doubt anyone could get her to surrender that guy. So, if he doesn't want to come out and play, there's nothing more you can do and there's nothing more I can do.
        Nick: You promised you'd help.
        Nash: And I did what I thought I could do.
        Nick: Which was practically nothing.
        Nash: Nick, what the hell is so important about this game?
        Nick: I should've just gone to Joe. He doesn't any problem taking the law into his own hands.
        Nash: Nick, it's a game. It's a softball game.
        Nick: No, it's not!

      • Harvey: Any idea who might want your ex-husband dead?
        Randi: I can't think of anyone who wouldn't want him dead. But that's just the people who know him personally.

      • Nash: Hey, Nick. What's going on?
        Nick: Just wondering how you're doing on the Chus hunt.
        Nash: Nick, we got a little police work here, we're a little busy. I promise you that we'll get to it.
        Nick: No hurry. We've got two whole days.
        Nash: Nick, I'll find him.
        Nick: If I was a paying customer instead of a nuisance of a father you probably already would have found him.
        Nash: Nick. Come on now, hold on. You know that I'm going to find the guy, I promise.
        Nick: That's what you said about cleaning out the garage 23 years ago. I don't believe it ever got done. (walks out)
        Nash: Joe, call Chuy over at Barney's and see if he can help us find this Chus character.
        Joe: Already ahead of 'ya. Chus has a girlfriend, Rosattia, lives in the Mission on 19th and Harrison.
        Nash: Oh, beautiful. Hey, lemme ask you somethin', you have any idea why Nick's on a tear about this thing?
        Joe: Yeah. You never cleaned out the garage.

      • (On the phone)
        Nash: Nash.
        Nick: Son, it's me. Your father.
        Nash: When you call me son, I pretty much narrow it down to you, Nick.

      • (Nash is showing her a card trick)
        Caitlin: You know, it's crossed my mind that, um, well, maybe we should attempt to be friends.
        Nash: You mean like keep your friends close, your enemies closer?
        Caitlin: I don't think of you as my enemy.
        Nash: Really? You could have fooled me.
        Caitlin (she picks a card, Nash put it back into the deck, and hands her a card back): Well Nash, not even close. You got the nine of clubs here. My card was the ace of hearts.
        Nash: Hah, well. That trick usually works.
        Caitlin: Well, I guess your magic just doesn't work on everybody.
        Nash: Well, maybe you're right. Sometimes it just takes longer on some people than others. (Caitlin oens the folder on her desk and sees the Ace there)
