      • Nash: Taking a trip?
        Caitlin: Yes, I am.
        Nash: Where?
        Caitlin: Out of town.
        Nash: Yeah, I kinda got that part. Like, to where?
        Caitlin: Well, I don't believe that's any of your business, really. (Nash laughs) Well, aren't you gonna walk me out?
        Nash: Oh, yes. By all means, Ms. Cross. (they walk out of the SIU towards the parking lot)
        Caitlin: So I suppose you're gonna tell me that since I didn't know about the Lieutenant governor and his girlfriend that I didn't win the bet, right?
        Nash: I am not even going to give you the satisfaction of reacting to that.
        Caitlin: Oh, well, good. So I did win then?
        Nash: Alright, alright, alright. You won. Now where 'ya goin'?
        Caitlin: I am going to my sister's wedding because I don't think she'll be able to survive my mother if I don't show up.
        Nash (laughs): I get it. (Caitlin takes a bag from her car and puts it in the 'cuda) Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are 'ya doin'?
        Caitlin: Our little wager. The bet, remember? I need a ride to the airport and you, sir, are gonna give it to me.
        Nash: So you can have, oh, let's see, anything you want in the world and you want a ride to the airport.
        Caitlin: Oh, what'd you think I was gonna ask for? A hunk-a-hunk of burning love?
        Nash (sarcastically): Oh, yeah, baby, that's what I thought, alright.
        Caitlin: Well, you just keep on dreamin' then, Bridges.
        Nash: Ditto, sister. (starts his car) So how long you gonna be gone?
        Caitlin: Long enough for you to miss me, and then I'll be back.
        Nash: I'll count the days.
        Caitlin: Hey, you can count?
        Nash: You wanna walk? (Caitlin laughs)

      • Joe: How'd you figure this out?
        Nash: Figure what out?
        Joe: The thing with the Lieutenant governor and the other girl, man. Where'd that come from?
        Nash (laughs): Bubba, once in a while, I really do get lucky.

      • Caitlin: I won, you know. Our little bet.
        Nash: Ooh, not quite, Ms. Cross. It's not over yet.
        Caitlin: Wait a minute. The bet wasn't that I would solve it, just that I would figure out what was goin' on.
        Nash: Are you gloating, Ms. Cross?
        Caitlin: Yeah, a little.
        Nash: Alright. What do you want?
        Caitlin: I haven't decided yet. It's gonna take me a little while to figure it out.
        Nash: Well, just take your time. I know that you'll come up with something.

      • Nash (pulls up next to Caitlin): Hi, there. Coffee?
        Caitlin: Funny.
        Nash: It's fresh. (holds a cup out to her) Well, kind of fresh. We just got it.
        Caitlin: No thanks.
        Joe: Ah, well. More for me.
        Nash: So, uh, what's up?
        Caitlin: What's up? What do you mean what's up?
        Nash: Well, what's up. Like what I said. I mean, you've been following us since we left the SIU.
        Caitlin: Oh, yeah, yeah, right. As if I have nothing better to do.
        Nash: Well, we just wanted to check on 'ya, see if we could do anythin' for 'ya before that electric car of yours runs outta juice.
        Caitlin: Oh, well, thank you. I'm fine. Watching you two chase your tails around doesn't use that much electricity. Really.
        Nash (laughs): You can't stand it, can 'ya?
        Caitlin: No. You see, you can't stand the fact that I'm gonna win our little bet.
        Nash (laughs): You're not even close, sister.
        Joe: If you were, you wouldn't be following us around.
        Caitlin: Okay. You are involved in a clandestine investigation that involves the governor, his chief of staff, a motley bunch of second rate thugs and a very well known San Francisco madam named Annie Lindsey. Now, since I have yet to see the governor, I figure that he's disappeared and that you've been enlisted to find him. And I assume that this is politically sensitive, hence the secrecy, now that's just the board strokes. Shall I go on?
        Joe (shakes his head, to Nash): I didn't tell her anything. (to Caitlin) Tell him I didn't tell you anything.
        Caitlin: No, you didn't tell me. I also figure that the only reason you let Annie Lindsey run her business is because the occasional information she gives you is a lot more valuable than the satisfaction that you get of throwing her in jail. But, Nash, you see, that's the difference between you and me. But if I were you, and I was looking for the governor, I would start with her. See 'ya later. (drives off)
        Joe: Well, I guess that means that you lost the bet.
        Nash: Nah.
        Joe: What do you mean, 'nah'? She knows everything.
        Nash: She knows what. She doesn't know who or why. And neither do we.

      • Nash: I have a solution for 'ya.
        Joe: Oh, yeah. What?
        Nash: Why don't you sell the project to the Bartons for the original 20 grand, you're out a grand and you can make that a tax deductible donation to the school.
        Joe: That's a good idea. That's very good.
        Nash: Thank you very much.

      • Caitlin: You know, you might as well tell me what's going on because I am this close to finding out anyway.
        Joe: Well, if you're that close then I don't need to tell you then, do I?
        Caitlin: You know, this woman... Julia Clark, is it? Is that right, huh? I bet if she had anything to do with the case you wouldn't tell me anyway, would 'ya?
        Joe: Uh, no. I wouldn't.
        Caitlin: Yeah, it figures. Your allegiance to Nash is that blind.
        Joe (laughs): Compared to you? Look, I hate to be rude but I have to go, okay?
        Caitlin: You know, it's really interesting, for two guys who aren't gay, you certainly have a close relationship.
        Joe: Oh. I'm really flattered. See 'ya.
        Caitlin: Okay, Joe, just one more thing, okay? Since you're closer to him than anybody else-- why is that, there's this, like, weird thing between him and I?
        Joe: Better ask yourself that same question first, okay? Bye.

      • Julia: It was one day a week. I'm putting myself through law school.
        Nash: Give me a break. Does every hooker and stripper in America use that line?

      • Evan: Harvey, let me ask you somethin'. You ever called an escort service?
        Harvey: What for?
        Evan: Come on, Harv. It hasn't been that long, has it?
        Harvey (laughs): Why you have one that you wanna recommend?
        Evan: No. But this girl in my building, right, she works for Annie Lindsey.
        Harvey: No. Who?
        Evan: You've met her. Carol, med student.
        Harvey: No way.
        Evan: Way. That's one of Lindsey's deals. You know, she hires these college girls, college escorts.
        Harvey: How progressive. You tellin' me that you were involved with one of Annie's girls?
        Evan: No, no. I mean, Cassidy-- I mean--
        Harvey: No, no, no. I don't wanna know.

      • Joe: Uh, Julia Clark, we need to talk to her.
        Nash: She does work for you, doesn't she?
        Annie: That's not part of our arrangement, Nash.
        Nash: Oh, no, no, no, no. Here's our arrangement. You give us information and in return I let you provide escort services and companionship for the lonely.
        Annie: I give you information on clients, not my girls.
        Nash: Ah, ah, ah. You can't change the rules in the middle of the game. Plus, I think that you're gonna wanna do this. Julia's in a tight spot.

      • Caitlin: Mm. Cell phone, huh? You know, you have a perfectly good telephone on your desk downstairs.
        Nash (laughs): Yes, which you probably have bugged.
        Caitlin: Hmm. You know, I thought of a little wager for our bet.
        Nash: Oh, you did, did 'ya? (Caitlin nods) And that would be...?
        Caitlin: Open ended. You win, and you get anything that you want. I win, I get anything that I want.
        Nash: Anything?
        Caitlin: Anything.
        Nash: Hmm. The mind boggles.

      • Caitlin: You know, you might as well just tell me what's going on because I'm gonna find out anyway.
        Harvey: Well--
        Caitlin: Aw, come on. It's what I do. I find things out.
        Harvey: It raises all sorts of loyalty issues for me, Caitlin. I don't like to be in the middle of this, okay?
        Caitlin: Fine. Why don't you just come on over to my side?
        Harvey: Very enticing, but thanks all the same.

      • (On the phone)
        Nash: Harv, Julia Clark. She goes to law school at Meyer Holt and lives in the Marina. Can you find her?
        Harvey: Ah, as a matter of fact... (notices Caitlin behind him)
        Nash: Uh, what about the governor's phone records and credit cards? Did you get 'em?
        Harvey: Uh, yeah.
        Nash: Ah, it's Caitlin. She's standing right there, isn't she?
        Harvey: Yes.
        Nash: Can you say anything other than yes?
        Harvey: No.
        Nash: Alright. Call me back when you got somethin'.

      • Joe: Oh, by the way, I gotta leave work early tonight. The Tufnil school is having it's annual auction and dinner.
        Nash: Oh, now that sounds like a lot of fun.
        Joe: Yeah, well, it's an important event in your goddaughter's educational experience here.
        Nash: Uh huh. And how is that?
        Joe: You know Paul Stevens? He owns that skyscraper on Sutro.
        Nash: Yeah.
        Joe: Well, he and his wife are going out of town and they want us to bid on an auction item for them.
        Nash: Rut-roh. I smell a scheme.
        Joe: Mm. Well, Paul Stevens is the head of the board of trustees at Bickford academy. That's the school that we want Lucia to go into next.
        Nash: Wait, wait, wait. You buy the auction item, he owes you a favor, Lucia gets to go to Bickford when she's 12.
        Joe: Hey, you're a smart feller.
        Nash (laughs): No rust on me, baby.

      • Joe: You don't think that she's actually gonna find out, do 'ya?
        Nash: Bubba, she's a hell of a lot better than anyone gives her credit for. But she's not better than me.
        Joe: Meaning what?
        Nash: Meaning that we're already into something and I don't like it.
        Joe: Mm. Wexler?
        Nash: Yeah. It smells like a grab for power except that it's too obvious of a move for him. Somethin' else is gotta be goin' on.
        Joe: Yeah, well, look on the bright side, if we can't figure it out, maybe Caitlin can. (Nash laughs)

      • Caitlin: What was that little pow-wow about?
        Nash: What pow-wow?
        Caitlin: Come on, you guys couldn't do a worse job of concealing that you're trying to cover up something.
        Joe: Maybe we're up to nothing. You know, maybe we're just pretending to be up to something just to throw you off the trail.
        Caitlin: Yeah, that's funny. Come on. Come on. What? You're really not gonna tell me?
        Nash: Yep.
        Caitlin: Oh, good. So you are gonna tell me.
        Nash: Nope.
        Caitlin: As if I couldn't find out. (Joe smirks) What-- What was that? Was that a snicker, Joe? You snickerin' at me?
        Nash (laughs): No, that was a 'Take your best shot, Ms. Cross.'
        Caitlin: Oh, you sure you wanna make that challenge?
        Nash: Ms. Cross, whatever blows your skirt up. You take your best shot, I'll take mine and I'll see 'ya on the other side.

      • (Ronnie picks up Tiny to take him to his cell)
        Tiny: I ain't goin' this is cruel and unusual!
        Nash: Only if he drops you.

      • Tiny: This is degrading, it's demeaning, it's facious, and it's unsanitary.
        Nash: Shut up! You violated my number one 'cuda rule, no puking! Now scrub.

      • Jim: The governor, he's missing.
        Joe: What do you mean 'missing'? He's been kidnapped?
        Jim: No, he's being blackmailed and he's gone underground somewhere in San Francisco. I need you to find him quietly, quickly, and confidentially. Now will you do it?
        Nash: Hell, I didn't even vote for him.

      • Tiny: No way, I can't ride back here. I get car sick.
        Nash: Well, then you shoulda run. That way, I coulda shot 'ya and you wouldn't have to ride.
        Tiny: Listen, man. I'm tellin' 'ya I'm gonna lose it back here, I get car sick.
        Nash: We're not even movin' yet.

      • Nash: Tiny, you're depriving some village, somewhere, of its rightful idiot.

      • (Big Tiny pukes in Nash's car)
        Nash: Don't pay any attention to him, he's about to die in a minute. He puked in my car.
