      • (On the phone)
        Nash: Here's what you do-- Round up those bozos of his get 'em into interrogation. Play 'em all off of each other. One of them's gotta know where Praun's got Evan stashed.
        Harvey: Alright. What if they don't crack?
        Nash: Ah, you throw a life vest to a buch of drowning morons, they'll give up their own mother.

      • (Nash and Caitlin are each on dates, and get seated next to each other at a resturant)
        Caitlin: This is kind of weird.
        Nash: I'll say.
        Caitlin: I was wondering if you could go someplace else.
        Nash: What?
        Caitlin: Go someplace else.
        Nash: Wh-- We're here first. We're about to order.
        Caitlin: I'm on a first date.
        Nash: Oh, yeah? Well, it looks like the last one to me, sister.
        Caitlin: You know what? He happens to brilliant and he's very successful.
        Nash: You don't have to convince me.
        Caitlin: I don't know how you did this, but you did this on purpose.
        Nash: Yeah, right. I came here for dinner. How was I supposed to know that you were gonna come here, too?
        Caitlin: You know what? I will never forget this. (Caitlin turns and walks right into a waiter carrying a dinner and gets it all over her dress)
        Nash (laughs): Me neither.

      • Joe: Alright me and Nick made a sizable donation to the B'Nith Beth Hillel summer camp.
        Nash: The what?
        Joe: It's a Jewish summer camp. Kids go there to study Talmud. They do aarchery, play soccer, football... It's great.
        Nash: Ah. Okay. Fine. What do you and Nick get outta this?
        Joe: Well... (mutters) A taz write-off.
        Nash: I'm sorry. You- You said something. But you have to speak up, you see.
        Joe: A small tax write-off.
        Nash: Nick has virtually no income. What write-off?
        Joe: Well, technically I get the write-off. He sold Mr. Woody to me, I donated him to the summer camp. I get the write off and give him a percentage of the cash back. That's all there is too. Actually, I think it's pretty smart.
        Nash: Only pretty smart?
        Joe: Well...
        Nash: I mean, you're defrauding the IRS and a religious organization. Hell, it's brillant.

      • Joe (after some lady's person got stolen in front of them): You're a police captain, you don't do purse snatchings.
        Nash: Ah, it's because I am a police captain. (the guy is on rollerblades and is gliding down hill on the sidewalk)
        Joe: This guy's gonna break somebody's neck.
        Nash: Yeah, hopefully his own. (the guy gains speed and as Nash cuts him off, he hops right over the top of the 'Cuda) Wow.
        Joe: Hmm. Little embarassing if the captain doesn't catch the purse snatcher.

      • Nash: So, I hear that you're in the horse racin' business again.
        Joe: Nick tell you that?
        Nash: Oh, no, I can't get a word in edgewise with him. He's too busy on the phone with veterenians, and track officials and trainers. All about Mr. Woody.
        Joe: Well, we got great news. It seems that the vet that diagnoised him with a bowed tendon was all wrong, we went to two other vets and had him checked out. He's fine. He's ready to race.
        Nash: And?
        Joe: And what?
        Nash: Yeah, exactly. It's the 'ant what' part.
        Joe: You know what, bro, you have a very supicious mind.
        Nash: Thank you! I'm a cop. So now what's goin' on?
        Joe: Look, Nick and I worked it out, it doesn't involve you. So you can just relax. Jeez.
        Nash: Uh huh. So... I'm not gonna hear about how it all went wrong at some later point?
        Joe: Yes.
        Nash: Is that yes I will? Or yes I will not?
        Joe: I'm not even gonna dignify that with an answer, man.
        Nash: Well how about a head nod? (Joe shakes his head) Does that mean 'no' or does that mean--
        Joe: Will you just drive and let me live my life. Damn!
        Nash: Uh, well, it's your life. But it's my father.
        Joe: Okay, nothing's gonna happen. I guarantee it. Feel better?
        Nash: Worse.

      • Harvey: Oh, boss.
        Nash: What?
        Harvey: Zoe's upstairs in holding. Her water just broke.
        Nash: Well, of course!
        Nick: I delievered a baby once.
        Nash: Harvey, call 911. (to Nick) You come with me. She'll probably have twins when she sees you between her legs.

      • (After Miranda sees people are watching Cassidy and Evan practically having sex on the internet, she calls Nash)
        Nash: Captian Bridges, SIU.
        Miranda: Hi, it's Miranda. I need Cassidy's cell phone number it's an emergency.
        Nash: What kinda emergency, Miranda?
        Miranda: Uh, I can't tell you, okay? Um, just gimme the number.
        Nash: Miranda.
        Miranda: Oh God, umm... Okaay call Cassidy and tell her to stop immediatly, whatever it is that she's doing.
        Nash: Miranda you cannot call here and tell me that there's an emergency and not tell me what it is.
        Miranda: Okay, fine. Um, you know what go online and go on my website, it's Just don't say, I didn't warn you, okay? (Nash hangs up)
        Nick: What's going on?
        Nash (as he's typing the website in): Shh. (they see what's happening and Nash immediatly picks up the phone and dials)
        Nick: Oh, no wonder the internet craze is exploding. Oh. (covers his eyes)
        Nash: Pick up, Cassidy. (covers his eyes) Damn it, Cassidy. Pick up.
        (Cuts to Evan and Cassidy)
        Evan: Aren't you gonna answer that?
        Cassidy: No. It's probably just that prank caller again.
        (Cuts to Nash and Nick. Through the computer screen Nash hears Evan telling Cassidy to stop and answer the phone)
        Nash: God bless you, Evan. (Cassidy tells Evan to stay) No! (Evan gets up and hands her her phone and she answers)
        Cassidy: Hello.
        Nash: Cassidy, this is your daddy.
        Cassidy: Daddy, this really isn't a good time, okay?
        Nash: Oh, baby you don't know the half of it. (he tells her she's being watched online and she hides the camera) Yes!

      • Nash: You hear that?
        Joe: What?
        Nash: It's quiet. When was the last time it was quiet in the SIU?
        Joe: Uh, never.

      • (After Nash makes a date)
        Joe: So, I guess the mourning period is offically over. Do you think Caitlin's gonna freak out?
        Nash: Joe, this is not high school and we're not high school kids. Besides how's she gonna find out?

      • Nash: Patience is a virtue but it ain't one of mine, brother.
