      • Kelly (about Connor): How long will he be in jail?
        Nash: Ah, I don't make those predictions.
        Kelly: He had everything, a beautiful daughter, money.
        Nash: He didn't have you.
        Kelly: Give me your hand. (puts a set of keys in Nash's hand) To my place.
        Nash: Hmm. You gonna be there?
        Kelly: No.
        Nash (hands the keys back): Thanks, anyway.
        Kelly: Well, Nash.
        Nash: Yes?
        Kelly: So-Long.
        Nash: That's it, huh?
        Kelly: You hate good-byes.
        Nash (laughs): I don't hate 'em that much. (they hug)
        Kelly: Maybe there's hope for you anyway.
        Nash: I wouldn't count on that, sister.
        Kelly: Next time you're in London...
        Nash: Yeah, next time. I hope there's always a next time. (Kelly kisses him and walks off)

      • Nash: Why's he doing this, Kelly?
        Kelly: I think you know.
        Nash: Well, Connor never struck me as the kind of guy who would risk his own life for revenge.
        Kelly: Well, that's not it. He couldn't get out of your shadow, Nash.
        Nash: What?
        Kelly: Well, he felt that he had to live up to some mental image I had of you.
        Nash (laughs): Well then I guess you didn't give him the full picture then, huh?
        Kelly: No, this is about you and me, Nash.

      • Nash: S.F.P.D. Inspector Bridges. Let's chat.
        McQuisten: What about?
        Nash: About why two men, driving a car registered to you, tried to kill me and my ex-wife last night.
        McQuisten: My car's parked in the hotel garage and if it's not, I'd like to report it stolen. Now who would I talk to about that?
        Nash: I'm gonna give you a little homework tip. Next time you want to kill somebody, make sure the ex-husband isn't a cop. We take umbrage to people trying to murder our loved ones.

      • (In Nash's apartment)
        Nash: Well, what do you think? Old place look the same?
        Kelly: Well, if I said that it was lacking a woman's touch would that be stating the obvious?
        Nash (laughs): Uh, yes it would. Now then, would you like something to eat? I have food. I think.
        Kelly: No.
        Nash: Um... Do you want something to drink?
        Kelly: No.
        Nash: Okay. Do you want to discuss sleeping arrangements? (Kelly shakes her head) No?
        Kelly: No. (they kiss)

      • Kelly: What?
        Nash: Oh, nothing. Uh, I mean, you and me and a stuffy art gallery opening, fancy orderves, pretentious people. Why, uh, hell it's just like old times.
        Kelly: If it were like old times, I'd be here alone and you'd be on a case. (Nash laughs) Luckily, I'm the case.
        Nash: Well, so much for that no fault divorce, huh?
        Kelly: Well, the divorce wasn't the problem. The marriage, that was your fault.
        Nash (holds up his hands): Uncle, sister. Uncle.

      • Kelly: Just for the record, Connor and I, we never did get married. Don't you think I would have invited you to the wedding?
        Nash (laughs): Ah, well, I don't know. I-- As you recall, weddings and I, we uh, near the twain shall meet.
        Kelly: We're um... Well, it's not working out.
        Nash: I'm sorry to hear that.

      • Nash: Alright, here's a question for 'ya. What the hell is McQuisten and his bunch of terrorist buddies doing in town anyway?
        Joe: Uh, terrorism?
        Nash: Yeah, I think you're on to somethin' there.

      • (On the phone)
        Harvey: Problem.
        Nash: I don't like problems.
        Harvey: But still, they exist.

      • Nash (looking in Kelly's storage closet): Look at all this stuff. What the hell you got in here? Earthquake provisions. What else you got in this place?
        Kelly: Oh, stay out of there.
        Nash: My god, woman. You haven't thrown anything away since you were in the third grade. (picks up something) Well, look at this. Our wedding announcement.
        Kelly: It was nice, wasn't it?
        Nash: Which part?
        Kelly: The announcement.
        Nash: Yeah, but then you know, you put these things in print and it's all down hill from there.
        Kelly: Not to my recollection.
        Nash (laughs): Well, you're not cursed with a photographic memory. Look at this, my old albums. I miss vinyl.
        Kelly: You gave them to me.
        Nash: Hell, I thought we had worn these out.
        Kelly: Come on, that's enough reminiscing for one night.
        Nash: Hey, wait a minute, sister. That's my stuff.
        Kelly: Well, possession is 9/10ths of the law. Of course, you can negotiate for their liberation. (leans close to Nash)
        Nash (laughs): Old trick.
        Kelly: Yeah. One I miss. (they are about to kiss and Nash's phone rings)
        Nash: Right on time. Never fails.

      • Kelly (to a woman in her house): You're wearing my night shirt.
        Nash: That's not your night shirt. That's my football jersey. I've been lookin' for that.

      • Nash (arriving at Kelly's old house): I don't see a 'for rent' sign.
        Kelly: That's 'cause there isn't one.
        Nash: Really? Does that mean you're planning on coming back?
        Kelly: Now why would you think I'd be coming back?
        Nash: Well, you don't have a 'for rent' sign up.
        Kelly: Is every little thing a clue to you?
        Nash: Well, why didn't you sell it?
        Kelly: This isn't a mystery for you to solve, Nash. Why don't you save your powers of deduction for the case?
        Nash: And you haven't answered the question.
        Joe: Hey, guys. I hate to break this up but I just saw someone moving inside the house.

      • Nash: So Connor never met you at the airport? He never showed up?
        Kelly: No. I waited for him at the gate until the flight left.
        Nash: And you're absolutely sure that you were followed?
        Kelly: The entire way. I lost them in the terminal.
        Nash: Why, do you think?
        Kelly: I don't have a clue. I was never very interested in that part, if you recall.
        Nash (laughs): Oh, I-I uh, I recall that, yes. (smirks)
        Kelly: What?
        Nash: Ah, nothing, I was-- Nothing.
        Kelly: You've got your mischievous look.
        Nash (laughs): No, I was just-- I was just looking at how beautiful you are. That's all.
        Kelly: Don't start.
        Nash: Ah, no. It was just an innocent observation. (laughs)
        Kelly: Innocent? You?
        Nash (laughs): Alright. Well, I'd be lying if I said that the of just taking you back to my apartment and popping a bottle of champagne and turning off my phone until sometime in the next Millennium hadn't crossed my mind. But...
        Kelly: But?
        Nash: I don't sleep with married women, you know that.
        Kelly: Oh, good. That's very reassuring.

      • Nash: Who's McQuiston?
        Mike: Read your recent Irish history.
        Nash: Don't get cute, bubba or I'll slap your ass right out there in that nice warm water.

      • Joe: Come on, do this case with me. It'll be fun, it's a Royal Prince.
        Nash: Oh, no, no, no. But I know that Evan would probably love this gig because you see, where strip clubs are concerned, he's your man.
        Joe: I don't want do this case with Evan. I wanna do it with you.
        Nash: You got two minutes to make the deal and then we gotta go see a man about a gun.
        Evan (walks up): Strippers? Did I hear strippers?

      • Nash: Off duty case?
        Joe: Well, it's not so much a case as it is a very, very lucrative baby sitting job.
        Nash: Oh, good. And you have such great luck with babies.
        Joe: Only in this case, it's not a baby. It's some 40 year old guy waiting for a heart transplant. He must've been struck by lightening or something.
        Nash: Uh, you want to start that again with me?
        Joe: The insurance company is paying me to look after this guy until the heart becomes available. And then I just drive him to the hospital. What could go wrong?
        Nash: Uh, he could die. That would be high on my list.
        Joe: So you're saying you don't want in on this case?
        Nash: You're psychic. Unbelievable.
        Joe: Speaking of unbelievable. You know what the most unbelievable thing at that crime scene was?
        Nash: You mean other than the two dead bodies?
        Joe: Mmm. Two beds. I'm sure they had an option for a king but--
        Nash: Well, I'm more interested in Connor's story than I am the sleeping arrangements.
        Joe: You gettin' that funny feelin' in your stomach?
        Nash: Yes, I am. It tells me that Connor is lying six ways from Sunday.
        Joe: So where does that put Kelly?
        Nash: Stuck.
        Joe: So if she's stuck that means that you're stuck, too, huh?
        Nash: What a concept. It almost sounds familiar.

      • Cecilia (introducing herself): Hi, I'm Cecilia.
        Nash: Oh, yeah, sorry. Ex-wife.
        Cecilia: I didn't know you've been married.
        Nash: Oh, yeah. She lives in London.
        Kelly: Near his other ex-wife who currently resides in Paris.
        Cecilia: You've been married twice?
        Kelly: Apparently so.

      • (A bomb is in a car)
        Joe: Well, we can't let it blow up here man.
        Nash: Well, we gotta move it.
        Joe: What do you mean move it? You don't mean drive it?
        Nash:: Yeah get in. If I'm gonna blow up you're going with me. Come on.
        Joe: Don't hit any traffic, okay?
        Nash: I'm not hitting anything, period. (they get in the car)
        Harvey (as they are driving away): Where are you go-- Oh, shut up and go pray. (Cut to Nash and Joe in the car, Nash is driving)
        Nash: How much time we got left?
        Joe: A mintue, forty-five. (a car honks at them) Watch it! (they make a sharp turn) Where exactly are we driving to?
        Nash: I'll let you know when we get there.
        Joe: You don't have a plan?
        Nash: Oh, sure it's easy to critize. (cut to outside shot of the car weaving in and out of traffic, then back inside the car)
        Nash: Are they still doing construction on Kearny and Washington?
        Joe: Yeah, Yeah I think so. (Nash is driving on the side walk) Nash, Nash hey you're gonna hit-- you're on the sidewalk! (Nash is off the sidewalk and Joe looks at him)
        Nash: Alright, remind me to write myself a ticket. (the car goes over a hill and flies up)
        Joe: Are you trying to kill me?
        Nash: Think of it this way, bubba. If-- If this thing blows you won't even feel it. (Nash makes a sharp turn into a construction site and parks the car. They run out of the car and a hubcap blows off of it and they stop running and turn and look at the car)
        Joe: That was it?
        Nash: We could have stayed in the car for that. (The whole car blows up and they fly back. They sit up and a tire that's on fire rolls between them and Nash's sunglasses are all crooked and bent)
        Joe: I can't believe we're still alive.
        Nash: I can't believe we don't have skid marks on our foreheads.
